I am hoping that none of the potential new players have player connections to the club. I'm not there are too many players that praise Ralph's tactical abilities, team selections and his man management. I hope to god that doesn't put any players off.
I can hear it now .
'So matter how well you play, he will drop you for the next game'?
'So matter how badly someone plays, he still picks them'?
'He plays players out of position, even when someone is on the bench for that position'?
'He picks favourites regardless of how badly they play'?

Mmmmmm think I'll give Saints a miss then!

It’s incredibly frustrating to read that West Ham are in pole position to sign Broja for £30 mil.

I mean surely we have the finances to do such a deal but I guess for reasons similar to what South Hants Rich highlights - Broja is not interested in staying with us.

I know he had a lean spell and lost form towards the end of the season, but he was not exactly blessed with quality service in dangerous areas.

So no Broja but we get another season with Shane Long - let’s see how that works out!

I honestly think Ralph’s reputation among players is very poor. It’s no coincidence that a succession of players have left without as much as a word about Ralph.
It will be very interesting to see how Ralph copes with an assistant manager who has been taken on to make important footballing decisions. I’m not sure his ego and over inflated self believe, will allow it!
I feel sorry for Rich K who Ralph almost ignored all game, every game. Meanwhile Ralph stands on the touch line, looking lost and bereft big ideas!

You have to ask yourself why players aren’t signing for us and are choosing other options .

Anyway, let’s hope we get some good players in. But . will he play them, will he play them in position. will he pick his favourites over quality .of course he will

It appears a different ball game at the club now with the new Owners/Administration begin to tighten their grip on affairs none less than installing their handpicked experienced and motivated NO2 which would negate any fears of disquiet or under achievement from Ralph as they would probably be covered both in the Short Term and Long Term if necessary.

i see quotes like players not signing for us. who have we offered a deal to and has turned us down?
we are never going to start paying broja and players of his age and experience 100k plus per week and on the 30m quoted when he was scoring 56m was the price. if he goes to west ham is he going to start can't see them dropping antonio.

And therein Saints001 lies our problem!

Wouldn't mind if this is how we do things this window. Announce all new keepers on one day, defenders in 2 weeks etc.

But good that a key problem area is now covered off in mid-June, Bazunu with McCarthy backup, Lis can be called back if we have an injury but for a relegated side in Turkey his stats look alright. Sensible, good age, no fee, small wages.

Also sounds like we'll be going for at least another 5/6 players. As of yet the only noise I've heard are Richards (LB) from Bayern and Svanberg (CM) from Bologna, as well as poaching City's chief scout or something like that?

But hopefully sign of the good things to come. Again, I'm getting hopeful. Which will only go one way!

I'm hoping that we get our business done early to make sure that everyone gets a full pre season

So new keeper joining, been some time since we had a decent keeper.
Fits the bill of young and talented and at the right place to improve and be sold for decent profit.
Sounds like a quality signing and fits our model.

Quality signing that

A few on here would do well to remember he’s young and bound to make the odd mistake and to not jump on his back when it happens

Heh SaintySaintSaint - I imagine you will be referring to my scathing criticisms of the recent custodians between the sticks and no offence taken ?
Have no fear, I will always support the development of young talent - particularly goalkeepers. I cannot say I’m sorry to see Forster go to Spuds though and so far as I’m concerned, it’s last chance saloon for McCarthy.

Worryingly though, we seem to be relatively inactive in the market - Aug 6th will soon be upon us and so we need time for new blood to bed in.

I would love to think that there’s a couple of big surprises in store but I’m not feeling it…

One of the guys posted here that he’s never felt so confident at this stage of the close season which has left me puzzled - I had a week away and wonder what I may have missed?!
