Adams signs!

Great News.

Now for two defenders!


1.) 01 Jul 2019 15:29:35
Glad that it's happened at last. Now need to strengthen defence and clear a few out and I think we could have a good season ahead.



13 Jun 2019 14:47:34
Moussa Djenepo set to sign for Saints. Will join after the African Cup of Nations on 1st July.

Great. Not waiting until the end of the Transfer Window.

Shows real intent.

Get your season ticket now!

Looks raw but could be a new "mane". Very happy with it.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 10:00:08
big discrepancy in reported price 10-13m looks like very good business. please all remember mane though who didn't set the world alight at first and give the guy a chance. is clearly raw with skill and pace so let's get behind him and encourage him to try things. bring in a striker and a centre half and hopefully a good start to the season and let's look forward and be positive, really need to ship some out though to big a squad will stifle progress.

Vesterguaard . Has he signed or hasn't he?


1.) 12 Jul 2018 09:53:11
If it’s not on the official website then he hasn’t signed YET.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 14:37:28
Apparently it's down to paperwork issues in Germany from BMG side.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 15:35:21
Had his medical yesterday but with the England match and all the club probably decided to wait.

Gunn signed and had his publicity stuff done the day before he was announced, in fact he posted it on his own Twitter before the club and was being shown around the city when it was announced. So no official announcement doesn’t = hasn’t signed.

4.) 13 Jul 2018 11:53:47
Yep signed!

5.) 13 Jul 2018 12:26:19
Signed. Official.



10 Jul 2018 21:46:33
So pleased the club are showing intent . We will do well with these new signings. A goal scorer needs to be added soon.




23 May 2018 13:52:35
Any idea when Mark Hughes will be appointed?


{Ed001's Note - no sorry.}

1.) 23 May 2018 17:41:17
Knowing S. F. C speed September.

2.) 24 May 2018 10:29:56
"early" this week according to the club :)

Survival! Clearly we need to keep hold of Ralph. Well done lads!

I think minds will already be turning to next season.

Who do we release?

I would suggest

Ings ( great trier but not 20 million )

Do we keep Yoshida? Who else is worth releasing?

I think Long has proven a point amongst the older players but we need some fit 20 somethings. We are too slow against teams that counter attack. Today's game proved that point.

We need to get players of the calibre of Pierre Emile.

The scouting should have already begun. I hope we don't wait till transfer deadline day!,



1.) 27 Apr 2019 19:00:48
"Release". meaning sell?
I don't see the point in selling Bertrand. He and targett are fantastic options at lb/ lwb.
Ings is our top scorer and offers a lot more than just goals too. We don't need to sell him, we need to add options to compete with him. Hopefully keep him fitter for longer next season and he could get 15 goals for us.

I would suggest keep yoshida and sell Stephens. One of forster and McCarthy should be sold to raise funds and free up wages. Let's keep long. RH likes him. He has 12 months left on his deal. I wouldn't necessarily offer him a new contract but he's ok for another season.

Let Austin go.

The biggest issues in terms of selling are the players on loan such as hoedt, clasie, carrillo, boufal etc. along with the players who have come from the academy but not really broken through. Gallagher, Reed, McQueen.

We need to strengthen, not weaken, and we need to trim the squad size and wage bill. Not to "line the pockets of the owner" like some fans believe, but so we're not throwing money away on players that aren't needed.

Utilize the academy, get another centre back in, a striker, a rw with pace and another rb/ rwb.

2.) 27 Apr 2019 19:44:45
Hi guys

Well we are safe! It wouldn't be saints if we didn't make it hard work. 're players we are committed to buying Danny Ings so let's let him rest and get him fit for next season, I have read that Austin, FF, Jack Stephens plus 3 others are going to be released. Here's a suggestion bring Callum Chambers back, he has been superb for Fulham this season either as a defender or midfielder and obviously doesn't have a future at Arsenal and is only 24.coyr.

3.) 28 Apr 2019 10:48:01
Outgoing: Forster, Stephens, Elyounoussi (loan), Austin, Gallagher. Lemina may also join them if a ridiculous bid comes in

Returning Loanees:
Clasie, Davis, Hoedt, Cedric can be sold
Reed, McQueen and Boufal can come back into the team - McQueen will probably be loaned out again
Carrillo I’d like to see given a chance but I’ll leave that to Ralph’s discretion

Incoming: Based on rumour - Maehle, Adams, Phillips (if Leeds don’t come up), plus a CB and another forward - Jedvaj and Herrmann maybe

That gives us a senior squad of 20 plus youth players such as Sims, Ramsay, Valery, Obafemi and Slattery in the wings

Don’t know what happens in GK training but they all seem to suffer from the same problems. I have faith in Gunn he’s only young still but it’d be nice for us to have one in from GK

Watching us the past few weeks (and years) even under Ralph we’re crying out for a commanding CB to join Bednarek. It’s natural to get in another RB, plus an attacker. A goalscorer is the icing on the cake.

Hopefully scouting has already begun and we will get players in before July. In the meantime give Ralph a lifetime contract with a £500m buyout clause if anyone wants to take him and the freedom of the city.

Thank GOD we’re safe. Looking at where we were after Cardiff at home I’m amazed we’ve done it with two games to spare. Onwards and upwards. COYS.

4.) 29 Apr 2019 23:08:31
Note sure you are giving Danny Ings the credit he deserves. He is not just a goal scorer but a very intelligent player, always looking for that pass to slit the defence . and very successfully i might add.

As for releasing McCarthy, no chance! I am not sure Angus G has done enough to hold onto the keeper spot.

5.) 02 May 2019 16:45:37
Gunn will be number one next season with Forster no.2. McCarthy will be on his way. Ralph not impressed with him and prefers Forster in training plus now Forster is gaining some confidence back he’ll look to give him at least cup matches next season.



23 Feb 2019 19:22:11
The loss against Cardiff is our death knell. can't see any escape after all the teams above us ( apart from Cardiff ) have won this weekend.

Should have bought in a couple of players in the transfer window.

We don't look as if the board want us to stay up and defeat tomorrow against Arsenal will signal the end.


1.) 24 Feb 2019 10:17:29
I'd say if we lose tomorrow, we will still have a chance. If we draw we still have a chance. Obviously a win would be awesome but that seems less likely than a draw/ loss.

2.) 24 Feb 2019 11:43:11
I don't think that many people will be expecting us to get anything from Arsenal but the Fulham game is a 100% must win game. All the teams apart from Cardiff are pulling away from us and it's starting to look like it could be them or us dropping down to the championship.



09 Feb 2019 18:18:31
I think Ralph needs to put Gunn in goal for the rest of the season. McCarthy has lost confidence.




09 Feb 2019 16:56:21




09 Feb 2019 16:14:39
If we don't win today we are in trouble.


1.) 09 Feb 2019 16:30:24
Then we're in trouble 😞.

We always developed academy players in the past. It's a welcome return to the old ways!

One game at a time but Ralph appears to have given the club its Mojo back.

2019 will see Saints improve no end.

Much depending on this deal. if we don't get many points out of Brighton and West Brom then MP will be out and the fans will turn against the club, big time.

Our other relegation candidates are strengthening their squads so Les must achieve something. and damn quick.

Glaringly obvious that we need a target man.

We need cover for VVD (and Fonte replacement) plus another front man. This is now a basic MINIMUM.

If a club offer the right price VVD will but not until the Summer.

It all depends on who is the highest bidder. If I was VVD I would want to go abroad ( Spain) . PL is too intense and packed with very average players.

VVD should go to Real Madrid or Barcelona but only after saving us from relegation.

A player is only worth what someone is prepared to pay.

Gunn and Fester sign this week then all we need is a big challenging C. F. to emulate Pelle. Good squad then.

The club needs to sort out who stays. In other words start with Alex McCarthy. Give him a 3 year new contract.

Give Target a new contract and keep him as reserve left back if Bertrand stays.

I think Gabbi should be persuaded to stay.

We have stability with Hughes, now let's stabilise and stop anyone leaving that we want to keep.

We may have to start again in some positions but a stable team, that
plays together without disrupting influences like Van Dyke.

Gabbi, Cedric, Bertrand Tadjic will go and our latest rubbish recruit, with Forster have to go.

Those out on loan. Who comes back? Who do we want to keep?

I think two players could be recruited from Stoke ( you know which two ) and we need at least a right back and two midfield and attackers. We knew we needed attackers last summer so don't make the same mistakes again.

Next year well be fine if The Board get their act together and don't leave it till the last day!

You really do have to look closely at the celebrations and how much Hughes has meant to many of this squad.

I personally think he could motivate this team to do well next season. Ok he's a gamble but he's much much better than the last two . It is unlikely that Hughes had a great input to the buying of players at Stoke but I think he could be an asset over the summer.

He has a bit of Jose about him. He take a the pressure off the players and takes it himself. I think the boards recent record of purchases has been a bit dodgy so they could do with a bit of experience behind them.

I think if you asked players who want to stay and want the best for SFC I think they would go for Hughes. I am not a great fan of other names mentioned above.

They would be an even greater risk so I would go for Hughes. We desperately need a period of continuity and as an ex Saint I think Hughes is our man.

If this is attacking what is defensive?
