Heard of any last minute incomiings Eds?!

llamedossaint

{Ed002's Note - Charlie Austin is expected to go and I would not be shocked if a full back were to arrive, perhaps on loan.}


1.) 08 Aug 2019 10:19:54
Cheers. no centre backs tho? Guess Ralph is trusting what he has. Just would have liked a more secure head but those players are not leaving, clubs I suppose. everyone wants them! 😬.


2.) 08 Aug 2019 10:23:04
God I hope it's a left back. I'd take Bertie back on the left side of a back three again if it means having a stable defense. Should've never let Targett go.


3.) 08 Aug 2019 10:29:07
Is this full back talk because we have a potential buyer for Cedric with some sustenance in Europe Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t understand what you mean about “sustenance”. But there is a potential buyer for Cedric in Monaco.}


4.) 08 Aug 2019 14:43:26
Ed0002, is the full back the one from Spurs? Kyle Walker-Pieters?

{Ed002's Note - He is an option.}


5.) 08 Aug 2019 15:40:22
Charlie gone to West Brom.

Is it time to get hassenhuttel out yet😬.

A little underwhelming but not the worst. Just have to hope gabbi and Charlie stay fit I suppose. Here's to the new season!

llamedossaint

{Ed001's Note - Danny Ings is on the way mate.}


1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:32:08
Deal sheet in. Ings on his way to Soton. Source:bbc sport transfer day feed.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 18:11:45
Well to be fair to the club with ings on loan this has been a pretty successful transfer window. We look to have strengthened in the right areas and with Hughes in charge this could be an enjoyable season. loaning Ings is the right way for the player and us because this try before you buy scheme was the only way anyone could possibly contemplate taking him . So for me the club get 8.5 out of 10 so COYR let's take Burnley after their Europa travels on Sunday all the best for the season guys regards vs.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 20:52:31
Thanks ed. Hadn't heard about ings! Not bad loan deal. COYS!

{Ed0333's Note - how does it feel to get a player from Liverpool instead of the other way round. Shame you couldn’t take Clyne and Lalana back mate.


4.) 09 Aug 2018 20:59:59
If we can get zings to play for us as he played at Burnley playing off either Austin or Gabbiadini we’ll have made a good move. Not entirely sure why we didn’t just get on with it and sort this all out a lot earlier.


5.) 10 Aug 2018 16:26:56
Get rid of jay Rodriguez who was far better than Ings before his long term injury and sign Danny ings who's now in the exact same position for 20 mil after signing Monaco's 4th choice striker for 20 mil also. maybe we should of just kept Rodriguez and saved ourselves 40 million pound. Southampton have undone everything good they have done in about 2 seasons. And I'll be amazed if we stay up. On the brightside Shane long Charlie Austin and Danny ings might hit double figures combined this season, league starts that is days out injured I expect their smash treble.


6.) 11 Aug 2018 03:37:56
Loving the positivity SRG!


7.) 12 Aug 2018 15:38:55
Not being negative but I would just wish Redmond would take a few chances and stretch their defences a bit more
He’s got the ability but lacks the confidence
Anyway a point against a solid Burnley isn’t the end of the world.


8.) 12 Aug 2018 22:10:11
Completely agree Diggy, but I actually thought he did a better job of that today than he did last year. He seemed a lot more direct when he got the ball.


9.) 13 Aug 2018 20:25:14
Ings was immense apart from one offside he did nothing wrong. Redmond was much better but beats three then checks watch sterling goes till the end good or bad Vestergaard got better through the game much better with 4 at the back and Stephens more than capable at rb in back 4. Austin and redmond either need to close properly or not bother thought CA was very poor surprising full ore season with no reported jiggles would rather see big Sam start.


 

 

28 Aug 2017 08:57:13
Perhaps u can help eds. What is it the club hope to gain by keeping vvd? Surely he won't play for us anyway if we keep him and if he does I can't see it will be with any conviction on his part. I know he could go to a club that is not Liverpool, but given their stance even selling to anyone would make a mockery of thier current statements. How does either side come out saving face?

llamedossaint

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool and, in particular Klopp, are totally responsible for the damage that has been done and the situation Southampton and the player find themselves in. I cannot personally see a way back for the player or the club and would expect him to move on this week.}


1.) 28 Aug 2017 11:06:04
Thanks ed. I agree he needs to move on now but just can't understand why club are sticking to the 'not going anywhere' story when they must know he needs to leave too. Surely it will make us look weak? Why not just be honest and say will be going? Does our current stance increase his value?

{Ed002's Note - No clubs think about other clubs "looking weak" just like they don't care about "statements of intent" or any such thing. This makes no difference to his value.}


2.) 28 Aug 2017 17:05:56
Thanks for thoughts ed! Personally I just want the saga to end. It seems like it has dragged on and perhaps scuppered other transfer opportunity we might have had with the income.


3.) 28 Aug 2017 19:27:53
World Cup next year, can't see him being picked if he hasn't played the entire season. He's on a very long contract, the club has all the power and it's nice to see them not being bullied into selling for once. I expect him to stay and apologise and play again.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 19:45:16
Will fetch more in January.


5.) 28 Aug 2017 21:11:26
Spoke to an ex saints player 2 weeks ago and he had spent the whole Friday at saints. Won't name him but I was on a flight to Guernsey he stated categorically that VVD was not for sale this window and would NOT be going to Liverpool- clearly money talks but that was the clubs stance and appears to remain so. Why would anyone sign for a manager who appears to think he is bigger than the players the way they have treated sakho and mignonette seems appalling and basically bullying in any other workplace. Also why would anyone want a player who has basically been on strike twice at two clubs comes across ok but appears to be a merchant banker.


6.) 29 Aug 2017 09:58:21
Saints0001 I agree with you but also why would we want a player who has basically been on strike twice and appears to be a merchant banker.


 

 

08 Dec 2016 22:19:29
Why do I bother?! Bit peed off if i'm honest as would have liked more of a run in europe, but I guess it reduces squad pressure. Goal scorer a MUST now in jan. Will being out of europe prove costly here I wonder? Last thing, what is the point of goal difference if it has zero effect on qualification.

llamedossaint

1.) 08 Dec 2016 22:41:02
Agreed - I thought we had done enough when we scored only to find out it doesn't count for anything because it is head to head if we both end up on same points.


2.) 09 Dec 2016 07:01:24
If we start doing well in the prem I don't mind being uot of the europa league, but if we carry on being rubbish I too will be v pissed off.


3.) 09 Dec 2016 16:24:51
I don't expect us to meet the dizzy heights of last season this year in the prem unfortunately. The best we can hope for is a mid table, obsolete boring season like those enjoyed by teams like stoke and palace before us. Although there is always the enjoyment of watching those West Ham fans trying to get tickets in the championship next season in their amazing new stadium!


4.) 09 Dec 2016 18:59:07
I agree with most here, but if we do buy a proven goalscorer then this may make a difference, we make good chances every game and need someone to be ruthless - in my eyes we haven't got the replacement for Mane and we need a replacement for Jay.


5.) 10 Dec 2016 16:51:44
Goalscorer and someone to link it all together. dusan looks great this year but needs support.


6.) 11 Dec 2016 22:33:45
Agreed, we need s goal scorer who is more than a target man as dusan isn't assisting as much this year, a creative scorer, just please god not sturridge! Too expensive. we need to go to that black box and produce a pearl. NOW!

And in one strike all my preseason optimism disappating away.

There was so much wrong about the way we played against Burnley.

To start with Stephens was bizarre? Even is Stephens looks composed and plays well in training, he can not transfer that into a 'real' game. Is it his concentration? his nerves? . or is it quite simply that when under the pressure of a real game he just can't do it, he has less time to think, to act and he is simply not good enough.
Yoshida has shown time and time again he can perform at this level, so to bench him and play JS is bizarre!

But for me the really bad bad part of our performance was how disjointed we were. In fact I think it was the worst i have seen us play for a couple of years. The players rarely linked up and the interaction between midfield and attack was almost none existant. Always looking to go backwards and when the defence received the ball, I have NEVER seen us so static? Vestergard and Stephens particularly were just standing on the ball/ holding the ball, with what looked like absolutely no idea where to pass it to or who to pass it to?

The attack did not function at all, very disjointed, very little inter play and awful off the ball movement .

I'm going to stop there as the glass of wine that awaits me has far more appeal than anything else i could write about an abysmal performance!

Positives . Redmond very sharp .

Best part of the game .

Today's results have gone for us pretty well. No one around us doing great.

llamedossaint

1.) 17 Mar 2019 00:27:04
Yes Leicester really did us a favour today, I think wolves at home we will lose, they are having a brilliant season, I agree with other posters Cardiff and Burnleys run ins are dire and 38 points will see us safe. A quick question what is wrong with Claude Puels management style? First us now Leicester answers would be appreciated. coyr.


2.) 18 Mar 2019 06:36:55
Been wondering the same thing. Maybe CP has a more "boring" style where the counter attacks aren't always as one would expect? He did well with us until the other teams more or less figured out what out game plan was each game.

{Ed001's Note - do you not think it was just about him lacking charisma? The fans find it difficult to get behind him because of that. People just want their leaders to be charismatic, rather than good at what they do. That is why they vote for big personalities rather than someone who is actually good at being an MP or PM.}


3.) 19 Mar 2019 09:54:29
I was ah we’d have seen more of him like he was at Anfield and Wembley in our cup run, full of passion. His post match interviews were always a bit dour but I didn’t mind too much.

I think the main problem was the inconsistency in results down to his style of play. Able to beat Chelsea away, City at home this season, but then lose at home to a saints side with 10 men and against a poor Cardiff side - I think fans would rather beat lesser teams and give the top sides a good game, than keep losing to relegation threatened sides for no apparent reason.

I do think we didn’t do him justice though, and maybe Leicester will eventually follow suit in dropping down the table, but I definitely wouldn’t class him as a poor PL manager. I think in a less competitive league like France his methods work just fine, and they did. maybe in his native tongue he was more effervescent in his post match interviews as well 😜.

Lets face it. Most of us got what we wanted when CP went. Perhaps we are now seeing that grass is not always greener?
