Just by the fact that Vertoghen is out for 3 months, any chance of us getting Wimmer has ended.

We need a quick fix up front until the end of the season rather than try and get a long term solution in this window. Prices are inflated plus there just aren't the long term solutions available.

I'd rather we go for a 30+ year old striker with a proven record who can put some of the chances we are making away.
We've got pace in and around the box already so a decent target man with experience is what we are after.

Leonardo Ulloa?

Trying to think of other players in this bracket that would be let go on loan mid-season. It's Tough!

{Ed002's Note - Sevilla and Swansea are both keen on him.}

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 15:32:46
Anthony Modeste 28 years: Fc Köln.

Ibisevic 32 years: Hertha Berlin

Okazaki 30 years: Liecester


The two first are tanks and Okazaki is well known. Not sure they are saints material but they would most likley go here for some big wages and not too hefty transfer sum.

There are more but the quality is falling as you look further into what's around.

It would be a non-Saint transfer if any of them were to join as they are not avalible on the market to my knowledge and they are also not in a developing phase.

They are just a few examples of what is out there.

Unsure about Okazakis playtime this year, but perhaps Leicester want room for a better striker and will let him go?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 17:05:39
Dzecko perhaps on loan so as to subsidize his wages

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 18:27:15
Okazki would be a great shout but he is probably too crucial to Leicester unless they buy another striker. Ulloa too, but with interest elsewhere he will cost more than he's really worth. we should buy chicarito for 25 million

17 Jan 2017 19:34:16

Does any one else think that we should go for fernando Llorente of Swansea? now that it looks like Chelsea don't have any more interest in him with costa looking to be staying put. Personally think he's class player and would fit straight in

17 Jan 2017 22:39:09
I'm not sure what happened with Sebastian Haller but it was reported that he was a target, at one point. He's scored 10 goals and assisted 5 times this season and is only 22 years old.

As for a Fonte replacement Martin Caceres is still without a contract, I could see him at Southampton for a few seasons, but it'd be unlikely.
Do the eds know of transfer news related to these two players?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2017 10:10:18
Dos Bast was keen to come here before his move to Sporting CP in Portugal where he has scored 11 goals in 13 games so far. At 6' 5" he might be a good Pelle replacement.

Apparently puel is plotting a move for Valerie Germain. Any truth in this eds?

It shows Puel's complete lack of understanding of the Prem . and in this case, the quality required to succeed.

I starting to think the same, we need a proven goal scorer so badly made some decent chances today but no end product

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 08:47:54
I wish people would stop thinking if you say we need a proven goal scorer one will just drop out of the sky.

It's mid season who in there right mind would sell a "proven" goal scorer at this point. And when you mean proven surely all goal scorers are proven? Or do they need to have scored a set amount of goals to warrant being looked at? Ridiculous.

honestly the amount of crap I've read makes me ashamed of our own so called supporters. It's easy to say in hindsight what is needed but to actually get it done isn't so. Support the club, that includes everyone in it and let them do there job.

Unless you fancy taking on the job of speaking to clubs and agents and scouting players that would fit seamlessly into our squad without needing anytime to adjust and bang in goals.

15 Jan 2017 09:03:03
Spot on 👆. Every social media post Southampton put up all the comments are negative never any support. After Liverpool result everyone was saying well done puel now calling for his head again after yesterday's result. We do need to bolster the squad but hard window to do that in. All we can attract is fringe players.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 09:29:13
All very well and good knocking the supporters for their concerns Romsaint but the fact is they are not just whingers they are just being realistic. When you take Pelle, Mane and Wanyama out of a top six side it was pretty obvious to me we would struggle to score goals. We have nobody in midfield that breaks play up which then releases the forwards through the channels . The reason why Spurs are so successful is because they have Dembele and Wanyama in holding midfield and the creativity of Delli Alli and the firepower of Kane, if you lost those players Tottenham would be bouncing around just above mid table. We lost key players and were not replaced during last summer. It is true that finding players in January is after the horse has bolted and almost impossible . The board should have been aware of the need to bring in quality back then . What they did do was spend a club record fee on an injured player who was going off to the ACN for a few weeks once fit which seemed a bit of a risk to me. Boufal is not a goal scoring forward really he is a creator. If we still had Pelle things may have been different and to rely on a player like J Rod to replace him that had been out for nearly two seasons was simply too risky. I totally understand the supporters frustration over what is happening at St Mary's and once again they are being kept in the dark as to any plans to change things. We should be still in the Europa League and taking at least a 3 goal lead to Anfield but we are'nt and I put the blame on both the board and our current manager. I expect us to put a really weak team out for the return FA Cup tie with Norwich so frankly a season that promised so much will probably end up with nothing but a dogged fight to stay away from the relegation places. We didn't sign up for this scenario when we paid out a lot of money for our season tickets and in my opinion have every right to voice our dissatisfaction about what is happening . I think Puel needs to be replaced now before the situation deteriorates further, no sense bringing someone new in when things have got worse than they are. We need new direction desperately and somehow stop this never ending gravy train as a supply ship to move on our best players to the so called top teams. I would be interested to know how many points we will get out of the next 8 games, have you seen the fixture list? Apart from Swansea very scary . Call me what you want but to me true supporters are entitled to show their concerns and concerned I am.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Jan 2017 10:09:21
Well said Chris, board got complacent in summer and somewhat arrogant and complacent will end in 1 thing, sshh 'R word' maybe not this season but carrying on as we are minus vvd in the summer possibly minus more, bertie, cedric, romeu. You can't blame them for the club having no ambition but to remain somewhere above bottom 3 in epl, this could've been the greatest season in saints history and our stock was very high in the summer but due to Les's masterclass of a cheap puppet manager choosing his own players it's royally gone down the pan, being such an egomaniac I can't see Reed sacking Puel as that would be an admission of failure on his part, what I do know if Cortese was here (yes I don't agree with all he done) we may have slightly more debt which IS manageable with huge TV money but we would be also be looking to consolidate or push on not regress

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Jan 2017 10:44:32
Les Reed has already stated that Claude needs time so time he will get. A ball winning midfielder that links up play like Romeu or clasie or Davis or jwp. You can't compare us to Spurs as we don't have the money or resources to compete with the likes. If you want to be realistic then consider us a mid table team that has been punching above our weight. Yes we've sold players that would of helped us in the situation we're in now. It's not always going to be that way and we all knew that. The club thought we could get by with what they bought in the summer. It hasn't worked and we've suffered the coulees of the Europa league, same as Everton, Spurs everyone else that has been in it. Fulham is a good example. its all well and good spouting your opinions on here but nagativity breeds negativity, and it's been seeping into the stadium for months which isn't helping the confidence of the team. Positive mental attitude guys. COYR

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 12:10:09
I sort of agree romsaint bar it's a acm we desperately need someone who'll get 10 goals 10-15 assists not another ball winner. You mentioned Fulham yes a good example, where are they now, this is what we need to be wary of, 2 signings is probably all it will take until one of our cb's goes then 3 signings, I've no problem playing championship other least it gets rid of the superstar refs, ego players, astonishing wages etc but what a shame it would be if all our hard work has been let go by some blind stubborn judgment by the board

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 12:20:10
Well Les Reed is wrong then. Have you any idea how potential relegation could affect our club . There is absolutely no reason I can think of that would put us in this situation other than bad decisions made by the board. The manager was appointed and for a while was riding the post Koeman train along with the pundits. The pundits keep saying every week that we'll be OK, I'm not so sure. The manager has been found out to be one dimensional and very stubborn regarding this crazy rotation system. The club is heading towards a crisis unless a very unlikely miracle happens.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 12:31:45
It's hard to keep defending the club and our manager after we've taken 25 goals from the squad and not realistically replaced them. We have the second worst attack in the league after Middlesbrough. Take away our solid defence and we would be in a relegation battle. I'm behind Puel and the board but you can't help and say we need a solid striker.
Longs underperformed this season and say what you want about him but I've never rated him. He was missing sitters last season and hasay just been awful.
Jay Rod - can't help but feel sorry for him. He'd be class if he hadn't of got that long term injury. But because of that he doesn't have the quality to below to a top 7 team.
Remond - nowhere near the quality of Mane. I know the club were looking at him for a while. So we probably would have tried to get him even if we hadn't sold Mane
Austin - injury prone. Not as good as Pelle
I mean I know that Pelle and Mane would both have long goal droughts last season. But this team lacks quality offensively

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 17:13:38
Romsaint, and there was me thinking it was a fan's forum. I'm a Saints fan by the way. As Chris pointed out we have equal measure in opinion. But since you raised the question "proven" refers to EPL proven and yes I'd say someone who has a good goals to games ratio rather than 2 or 3 in a season - it's a spectrum - in response to some of the rumours flying around about poor quality forwards we have been linked to.

I suggest if you don't like what other people are writing, and are not tolerant enough to accept it "as a differing opinion" rather than 'crap' as you call it, then there are other options. We all make equally valid comments on this forum, but the most valid ones are the ones that debate in a mature and friendly way

Best wishes to ALL saints fans

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 21:52:32
I think the overall concern was puel saying he was happy with his squad. Whether a goalscorer falls from the sky or is plucked from the black box we need goals and we need belief because its obvious the players are as disjointed as we are with the situation.

And I know this will receive the usual "careless spending" and future of the club crap but the club is being run with an income of today but wages of yesterday. if we can't afford to say no to these offers for players or pay decent salaries on today's market then how do you sell that future to anyone?

I see clubs bigger and smaller than us paying decent fees for decent players on decent wages and I think why not us. we must of made more money than any of the clubs around us in proportion.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 12:57:30
Willsasaint I think you'll find it's a Southampton rumours site.

Fonte's dad has been saying that Puel won't play him against Liverpool. Jose wants to play and is a professional blah blah blah but it's Puel decision to leave him out.

So what? Why would you want to play a player that doesn't want to be at the club.

09 Jan 2017 19:50:21
Fonte is trying to slant everything to make it look like he is being forced to move he's been acting like a spoilt prima dona all season. I don't see a big que of clubs clamoring for his signature maybe he's worring that no one wants him and he might miss out on a glory trip to Wembley.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 20:10:10
I agree. He's been immense for us but as soon as he (or Les) states he wants out, we should play players who want to be here. If he's still here when the window closes, then I would bring him back in if he warrants it in training.

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 21:21:52
I didn't know what to think about him, I actually initially felt a bit gutted for him but after reading le tiss tweet saying how unprofessional he has been behaving it makes me wonder what's what.

Fonte has helped Saints get from Div 1 to EPL and deserved a move last summer. That buffoon Reed said no, despite letting all those Turncoats swan off wherever they wanted, whenever thay wanted. Reed has treated him in the most shabby way and should be sacked for incompetence. Fonte has every right to be fed up with Reed's attitude.

Agree1 Disagree4

10 Jan 2017 13:29:08
Totally agree Larry, I don't think Jose buys in to the new Puel style of football . To put it in other words he sees the club stagnating and going backwards . To me Fonte is a true professional and has given 110% as a player for many seasons. I personally wouldn't say a bad word about him.

Agree0 Disagree3

10 Jan 2017 14:07:44
Larry and chris wake up you say fonte was prevented from moving in the summer well that's not true is it the real truth is that NOBODY put a bid in for him and contary to what st. José tried to lie about was was offered a large pay rise £80,000 a week our highest earner and dispite what he lied about again he was offered an extra years extention so how have saints let fonte down. Also he has to adapt to any style we ask him to play poch had his style ko man had his and he adapted to those styles it's just that he thinks he's a world class player which he is not so I say again bye bye fonte many thanks

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 15:35:37
I'm probably in the minority here but in my view Fonte signed a contract with us. He was clearly happy when he signed it or he wouldn't have signed. To say he deserved a move half way through his contract is absolute nonsense. In the same way if a player doesn't perform well the club can't rip up that contract either.
Yes he has history with us and that's why he has continued to be offered employment at the club. But he is old, and would I think be 35 if he saw out his contract with us, and hoping for retirement payday move.
See out your contract Jose then go and earn 300k a week in China for a year!

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 20:24:15
Maybe Puel is finally showing some cojones?

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Jan 2017 19:36:41
As mentioned above, no one actually bid for him in the summer. Jose was up to his old tricks again by not actually answering a question with a straight answer regarding the reported interest in the player which gave the media an opportunity to go into overdrive and write all sorts. I like Fonte, I really do, but one thing that I massively disagree with in the modern game is players agents coming out and saying that players have slapped in a transfer request, this massively de values the player and stitches the club right up. He will be here now until the last day of the window and then leave for a pittance as a result. That's a shame considering what he has done for the club, but more so what the club has done for him. I wonder if he didn't come to join the Southampton revolution that he wouldn't have a Euro 2016 winners medal as I don't believe he would have made the Portugal team.

A lot of money. Although would be a huge asset to the club.
This makes more sense, a signing that will bring the club forward. He's one of the most talented attacking midfielders in the league. Him with Tadic and Boufal could create a amazing creative unit in midfield. We'd just need a striker that can finish their dinner

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 22:31:17
The same journo has said that the Swans turned it down. Granted, it's a lot of money for us. He is 27 and proven and we have apparently taken out a cash loan from an Aussie bank against future TV money. Maybe we want a warchest like Everton have?!

Believe it's euros not £

10 Jan 2017 19:28:41
It could be dollars he isn't worth it. Maybe including wages on a 4 year deal you could buy world class for that money. If we have offered that assume a striker and centre half are en route or are we going to play 4-6-0.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2017 23:19:28
Yeah since our brexit vote the pound dollar and euro are pretty much the same. Fuels gone up though. Everything we import has. Puel is pretty much the same. No inflation there.

Eds how likely are Liverpool to let him go on loan? . or would they prefer a permanent transfer? . maybe fonte to Liverpool on a permanent and sakho to us on loan as part of the deal? .

{Ed002's Note - It will all be about money and why would Liverpool want Fonte?}

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 01:58:15
I've read elsewhere that Liverpool do not want a loan deal and are looking to get rid permanently, as he has no future whatsoever at 'Pool. However, they want most of the £18M they paid. If they can't get rid they MAY consider a loan near the end of the window. Can't see us paying much more than circa £10M but you never know.

No idea why Liverpool believe they should make a profit on failures, but they always seem to manage it.

{Ed001's Note - a profit on failures? He is a cult hero amongst most Liverpool fans because he was excellent when he had his head right. He just needs to grow up and turn up time and stop messing around in team meetings etc. On his day he can look like Bambi on ice, but he will look awkward while still playing excellent passes and dribbling past players trying to close him down thinking he must be struggling because he looks awkward. Sakho is a bit like Crouch, looks like he has no control over his limbs at all, but somehow it works. His main weakness is his heading, he has a head like a 50p piece and his headers can literally go anywhere!}

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 12:32:52
Maybe "non successes" would be more appropriate. Liverpool don't want him, ergo he hasn't been a success. Most clubs have to cut their losses on such players. Shelvey also springs to mind, couldn't get in their side yet his value doubled! If Schneiderlin had gone to Liverpool for £25M and had played about 10 games in 2 years, they'd be insisting on £30M.

Minor detail, and an obiter dicta comment. I still wouldn't mind seeing him at Saints at all.

Lol at 50p piece

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 14:24:16
Wanderings ain't, Liverpool have made many losses over the years on players. It may only be that we make a lot of money recent years as the players we've sold have been some of our better ones. But the amount of players houlier, benitez, hodgeson and rodgers that were crap and we paid good money for them and then either sold them cheap or had to pay them to get of our books is a lot more.

Lamo. What a surprise. What did I say. BBC reporting that Liverpool want £20M. A profit. On a player who they don't even want training with the rest of the squad, and hasn't been involved with the first team for over 6 months.

That'll be the end of this one.

So Fonte has handed in a transfer request.

Where could he be off to? One of the best defenders and most consistent defenders in the league. I will be absolutely gutted if he leaves.

Just read it as " " on BBC. Final out of the pram then. He isn't focused and his legs are really going this season. If we can truly get £7M or so I wouldn't be gutted - as long as we get a replacement in.

Ed002, did u mean podcast? Can you link it for us? Can you also confirm he's going, where to (seems obv MU), and price as you probably know already. Any news on replacement would also be appreciated. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - It is a Sharkopod - Podcasts are for wimps. You would need to go to the Manchester United page and search. I am far from suprised about Fonte and have explained on these pages before. So that could be both centre backs off this winter then.}

If both CB's were to leave. We'd get relegated. There are no two ways about it. We wouldn't have enough time to sign two new CB's and get them to play at the quality of Fonte and VVD.
It's gutting because we probably have one of the best defences in the league.

Club want 13 million.

Can't see why we would sell both our cb's half way through the season.

It's all about money as far as the board is concerned especially if Virgil asks to go. The point has been made many times before that we have got away with selling our best players and replacing them with similar or better. We haven't done that this time and we will be punished if we think our academy can sort the problem out, they can't. The PL these days is a different ball game to what is was 3 years ago, to stay in it you have to invest in quality players . We don't do that so hard times ahead unless they see sense. I like me Puel but he is the wrong man for the job, seems obvious to me. We need an experienced PL manager to sort all this out. I mentioned Glenn Hoddle before, why not.

Glenn huddle has managed in the premier league for donkeys years. He's out of touch with managing in the current league. Dalglish went back to Liverpool after so many years, benitez at newcastle. Need I say more? I have heard rumours about pellegrini but there's no evidence behind it.

Chris u make a good point but then ruin it with talk of huddle. When was the last time he even managed. And how succesfull was he? . tbh, who else is available that would come in and do a better job than puel? . I'm not happy with the way we're playing or the rotation. but maybe he does need some time. do we have enough to time for him to learn though?

Ed do you have any insight on who we might replace him with?

{Ed002's Note - It depends to some extent what happens with van Dijk. I said before that Southampton may look to Wimmer and Doria may provide an option. A loan might be something to be considered as well.}

Cheers, very helpful even if not great news. Link works perfectly.

Any news on potential incomings? Couldn't see one of these Sharkopods for Saints.

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing really new on incomings (Gabbiadini remains of interest) except that you can strike Nemanja Gudelj off the list - he is moving to China. There has not been a Sharkopod done for Southampton.}

if he goes Manchester United we should take spider back in the deal

Read today on Sky Sports that Fonte will only leave if we can find a replacement.

Do you think that Southampton will look for a replacement or do you think we would try to persuade him to stay until the end of the season as we did with Schneiderlin?

{Ed002's Note - The club will be aware that Fonte has had his head turned and as they have not offered him a new contract he has to look at other options - so this is not a shock. However, there is no offer on the table for him right now as I understand it. Manchester United have shown an interest and I have explained that I would not be suprised if they made a bid. I have also said that much depends on what happens with van Dijk as it could force the club in to looking at buying someone like Wimmer and then perhaps looking to a loan of Sakho or another. Southampton will fight to hang on to van Dijk amid interest from Chelsea and, possibly, Manchester City.}

Thanks Eds.

Don't think Manchester United will be a good move for him. Simple because I don't like the way Mourhino treats his players. I don't see him being a member of the first team. I might be wrong, I know that United have defense problems and have struggled to cement 2 solid CB's since Vidic and Ferdinand. I've been reading as well on social media that the United fans would rather sign Lindelof

{Ed002's Note - I have explained all of this already.}

Reports say that he has been offered a contract and he has refused. Also if van dijk wants to leave let him go. take the reported 60m. spend 30m on dembele from celtic and possibly bid for spider and see if we could temp terry his experience would be great for the likes of stephens. we create a lot of chances but can't score. think we should have replaced pele and mane. also we have a keeper who is 6ft 8 who should command his area and win everything in the air but he doesnt. beyond me.

{Ed002's Note - My understanding is that there has been no contract offered to him. Dembele won't be moving to Southampton, nor will "spider" and nor will John Terry.}

The trouble is I can't see anyone coming of note until the club has been sold. Maybe you can shed some light on this i. e is it still up for sale? Not paper talk but the last I heard it has been on the market for sometime.

{Ed002's Note - The Southampton owners had discussions with Lander as I previously explained but it came to nothing at that point as (a) Lander valued the club less than the owners, and (b) Lander would probably not be able to raise additional funds easily. If an attractive offer were made the club could be sold. It is entirely unrelated to transfers.}

Starting to hear rumbling of a dressing room bust up after wba game, apparently don't shoot me or anything I am just saying out loud what I've heard but the players have told puel that they don't have faith in him and apparently want him gone. Now it May of just been 2+2 =17 but doesn't sound good. It must be impossible to build any confidence though knowing you can play your best game ever and be benched the next game.

wont deny I read it myself, the eavesdropper gave a really in depth analysis on the situation for it to be miles off the truth. Fontes gone this window, claims he handed in a transfer request earlier this week.

I don't think we won't let any strikers go this season with Austin out and boufal off to African cup of nations we're dry of goals at the moment.

Their supporters weren't singing very welcoming songs to him last home game.

Can't see the player wanting this happening after the stick their fans were giving him on Saturday after he celebrated for scoring.
