Just seen the squad list and confirmed shirt numbers for the coming season - Is there any reason why no one has taken the number 8 shirt? Are we expecting a free agent to sign?

Agree0 Disagree0

According to sky sports saints have put in a deal sheet for Kevin danso highly rated centre back with Augsburg. He has been watched by a number of clubs. Happy 2019-2020 season guys.

Agree1 Disagree0

I'd be happy with Danso. Young and eager to learn. Got to be better back up than Stephens.

08 Aug 2019 20:47:42
Not reading anywhere that the Danso deal has been completed - Did we get him.

08 Aug 2019 22:05:43
Danso is done-so.

08 Aug 2019 22:39:44
It seems so. at last. Both Adam Blackmore and Adam Leitch are reporting via Twitter that the paperwork has been sorted, with an announcement expected tomorrow. They are both reliable sources, so it looks like we're there now. This must have been the latest deal we've ever worked on!
Let's hope Danso is the business as our defence sure does need strengthening. Last season's record of dropping points from winning positions absolutely must be addressed.

08 Aug 2019 17:39:11
Saints have submitted a deal sheet by the 1700 deadline. come onnnn defender!

And not a clue who it is given all the media sniffing around the grounds - love how quiet we keep it!

Just hope we can get something over the line.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2019 06:14:29
Seems that we did :) Hope the club will announce Danso today.

08 Aug 2019 07:47:46
Heard of any last minute incomiings Eds?!

{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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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! 😬.

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.

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.}

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.}

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

27 Aug 2019 17:11:33
Liam, I’m lovin’ your Lego man profile picture thingy. Class!

06 Aug 2019 20:47:51
Reading this evening that Josh Sims is in advanced talks to join New York Red bulls on loan for the season. Surprised by this, thought he had a good chance to stake a claim for a starting berth this year at Saints. Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 21:15:53
It's a shame because he has talent. I think with Boufal coming back, his chances will be limited.

07 Aug 2019 00:38:24
Difference between Josh and Boufal is that Josh is aggressive, fast, positive and intelligent . exactly the attributes need in the PL . should never let him go .

07 Aug 2019 09:27:54
I think it's a good idea let him get one more season of first team football. I fear his chances would be limited this season otherwise. Could just be a rumour, what was the source of this one? Rare for players to go to MLS.

07 Aug 2019 13:04:45
Sims is a good player but the problem is he's a bit lightweight for the premiership. skilful but gets knocked off ball to easily.

08 Aug 2019 10:08:40
I was under the impression he'll be back after Christmas. Assuming he's had a few months first team football hopefully he'll provide a new energy for the 2nd half of the season, he'll be like a new signing!

05 Aug 2019 23:09:24
Only a few days to go and very little news on either ins or outs. Really can't see any more incomIngs at this point - would love another defender - but maybe a few fringe players may exit by Thursday night.

If that's the case, I can see us having an entertaining season, similar to Bournemouth - loads of goals at both ends - but maybe not enough to breach the top ten at this point.

What do we think of our prospects given how our squad seems to be shaping up?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2019 07:45:31
Still weak in central defence. Apart from that I think the squad looks strong. Change isn't always necessary when it comes to the team, getting them to play consistently to their best is what we need.
That said a strong experienced centre back in place would be ideal as our back ups aren't up to the challenge.

06 Aug 2019 09:23:46
Maybe we'll loan in a centre half with the option to buy? Or maybe we'll take the risk and sign one regardless of the players we want out leaving. I reckon we'll already have the player we want to be lined up as it's literally only the case of getting rid of our unwanted stock before we bring someone in, this wouldn't be a signing just for the sake of signing someone.

04 Aug 2019 15:29:49
Saints are trying to sign on loan Jean Clair Todibo from barcelona. he's a 19 year old French centre half . very highly rated.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2019 08:50:06
Few outlets linking us with Benoit Badiashile - seems a bit unrealistic to me, heard anything on this Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Wolves have held talks with ASM about him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2019 17:14:13
I've heard whispers about Scott Banks . Any news about him eds?

{Ed002's Note - No sorry.}

30 Jul 2019 14:58:37
Apparently Everton considering an offer for Lemina.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2019 03:13:11
Everton have signed a DM, I don't believe any of these Lemina rumours. If he does go I think it'll be a cheap sale or loan to a European team after our deadline.

25 Jul 2019 16:07:49
Wolves are supposed to be interested in signing lamina . is there any truth in this ed.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2019 21:56:10
Hi Ed, are you aware of Saints tracking any players currently?
I have not seen or heard anything of any substance recently.

{Ed001's Note - I am aware that they are defo still intent on making signings, but Ed002 would be better placed to put names in.}

28 Jul 2019 08:46:58
Do have any names, Ed002? Cheers!
