Stuart Taylor released. Just don't get what this club is doing sometimes 😭#RossWilsonOut.

any legs on the Balotelli rumours?

1.) 30 Dec 2017 23:40:49
I didn't know there were any? . I've only just got jack sparrow out of my system!

2.) 31 Dec 2017 06:56:12
Not sure how true they are but apparently he followed Southampton on Twitter/ instagram and posted some cryptic stuff alluding to saints

That and some saints “itk’s” reckon we’ve made a bid.

3.) 31 Dec 2017 10:38:01
Not sure about him he differently knows where the goal is but he the man is a loose cannon. His wages would be higher than most.

4.) 31 Dec 2017 10:49:43
Would be worth a go never be a dull moment and he is back in the Italy team could be the big signing that was rumoured.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 06:16:48
Real wild card. If the price is right then I guess it makes sense, provided it’s a fairly low risk deal. Same story as studge or Walcott for me, needs to be low risk high reward.

surprised no one's blaming Forster for Everton's goal.

"He's 6 foot 7 he should be reaching the top corner from the opposite side of the goal. What use is having a big 'keeper if he can't do that? "

1.) 27 Nov 2017 13:34:02
Yes sainty saint, I have been saying for ages the only reason people are moaning about forster is because we are not scoring goals and the poor guy gets the blame. don't get me wrong he should shoulder some blame but its like I said to a friend after the burnley game, if we scored 3 goals would any one have moand about the 1 goal burnley scored?

2.) 27 Nov 2017 16:26:10
Its probably the fact he's rumoured saints top earner and you expect something from a premier league gker. What he loses in mobility he should make up for in commanding his box and scaring the s@*t out of anyone going near him or his goal. he obviously has allowed his form to dip, hence being dropped by the England squad. He looks half assed at best. nonchalant would be the nicest word I could use to describe him. although there is an air of arrogance. He does a job sure but would like a decent back up option to keep him on his toes and keep him working hard.

3.) 27 Nov 2017 17:18:41
Wow it's always tough to remember nobody is perfect! But I think the the placement of their goal was perfect mind you! You may agree or not?

Forster does need to hard on his acceptability to let in the long shots but apart from that I think many of us have been overbearing in our criticism towards him.

No doubt that's partly due the results we've been getting of late. Why any of the other so called England goalkeepers are ahead of him simply amazes me!

Pickford was outstanding for England last week mind you. However his Everton form shouldn't put him ahead of our man nor can hearts form! For that matter.
Some of our supporters have forgotten what it was like being a Saints fan when we was relegation fodder for most of the 1990's maybe they wasn't born. so can't possibly remember.
I can it was fun beating the odds season after season.

However, we have move on from those days and we expect more! But maybe we should start to point out more often our players finer points. It's easy to pick holes in others when mistakes are made.

4.) 28 Nov 2017 18:03:50
Whether the criticism has been over the top or not, if you think Forsters performances this season have been acceptable, you need a trip down the opticians.

5.) 29 Nov 2017 11:54:11
It is well known that people had big doubts about FF when he was at Newcastle. Big parts of his game have not improved and I honestly believe that with a better goal keeper, we would have more points on the board.

6.) 30 Nov 2017 13:02:33
Quoting his Newcastle career is totally out of context firstly he was young and still learning his craft secondly when was the last time Newcastle produce a world class players
from their academy.?
he needed to go to Scotland for that!

I'm not claiming he' s without fault he cleanly has frailties but I am looking to my follow Saint fans for a balanced approch to their views in fairness of criticism toward any of our players! We should always be mindful that we supporters of our club and it's players e. g. can you say he is worst than west ham's Heart or Everton's Pickford both are ahead of him international?
Personal I wouldn't.
I would like to see us avoid emotional criticism towards our players other wise we risk being looked appon as people like Donald Trump unhinged.!

7.) 01 Dec 2017 15:59:01
It’s why they sold him!

8.) 02 Dec 2017 16:53:54
4theloveofgame - it is you that has taken my post out of context. If you re read my comment it isn’t all factual. As saint0001 said, they sold him for a reason and since then, he has not improved as the faults remain. I think you will find my comment was both balanced, fair and factual. Like you said at Newcastle he could blame his age, not any more!

9.) 02 Dec 2017 18:19:00
Yes sorry, it was me hands up! My apologies.



07 Jun 2016 23:05:36
Seen some reports saying AC Milan have contacted Pellegrini. Isn't that who Emery was supposed to be going to?

1.) 08 Jun 2016 06:06:05
No that's PSG.



20 May 2016 21:49:26
Tonny Vilhena rumour is doing the rounds again. Contracts up next month, supposedly wants to play for Koeman again.

Anything in it?

1.) 21 May 2016 00:47:28
Going to Leicester.

2.) 21 May 2016 12:12:29
I wouldn't believe that yet. Let's see what happens just because a paper says one thing doesn't mean it will happen. Players can switch look at willian.

3.) 21 May 2016 13:51:28
Koeman was asked about it and said that we had a lot of midfielders at present, but he us a very good prospect that Koeman likes, so we'll see I guess.

4.) 21 May 2016 15:21:32
I think he's already decided on Inter.

5.) 21 May 2016 22:34:42
Inter won't give him what he wants wages wise.

what a difference.

1.) 16 Dec 2018 15:54:45
Can't believe (and hadn't realised) we hadn't scored a header all season! amazing performance . the pressing was from the Poch era . fantastic game of football to watch!

2.) 16 Dec 2018 17:12:39
Agree, and thankfully my comment of the other day came good, looks like we set up as 3,5,2.



30 Apr 2017 04:52:52
Remember being knocked out the cups early last season and how many of you said you'd give up league position for a decent cup run? 😂

Swear you lot just love a moan 😂.

1.) 30 Apr 2017 11:39:22
Think again the most frustrating thing is more the way they're performing. The Chelsea game I actually thought was ok but yesterday was not good enough. I don't care about rejuvenated teams or new managers we should not be drawing 0-0 at home to hull, no disrespect. A few down the beach earning their mega money while the supporters are still having to pay full whack to watch that pompey. all home games should be discounted till the end of the season and season ticket holders should get free cup next year or something incentive wise. again though we are safe but how will we replace van dijk. romueo might be under the radar enough to stay another season but players will leave and players will come, the problem this year seems to of been the players in haven't matched the quality of this leaving, could that be due to coaching/ scouting/ staff changes or black box not up to scratch but we have paid a lot of money on players this year . will they come good next year, who knows, who knows what the summer will bring but rumours start somewhere and I'm reading a lot of players leaving and not too many inbound. lazy jourbalism is a possibility and hopefully it won't be summer sale clear out again.



13 May 2016 11:05:15
Big Fraser just signed a new 5 year contract. Things are starting to look good!

1.) 13 May 2016 12:28:30
And JWP. both excellent news.



14 Apr 2016 14:47:08
Just set my profile picture to a supposed leak of next seasons shirt (if I'm allowed to have it up aha)

1.) 14 Apr 2016 23:59:53
Yh I would be happy with that kit 100 percent.



09 Apr 2016 16:50:20
Somehow Charlie Austin managed to injure himself sitting on the bench. That 4 million is looking less of a bargain now, eh?

1.) 09 Apr 2016 18:34:29
To be fair to him, he did it running around in the warm-up, not sitting down. Meniscus inured. I thought he'd gone of to watch the National.

2.) 10 Apr 2016 01:42:06
That post made me laugh!
I was thinking the same when I heard it!

3.) 14 Apr 2016 03:40:36
(To be fair to him he done it running around in warm up )
Ha ha ha ha
Even better jof.

^ i’ll never get this “hurr southampton won’t pay x amount for a player” stuff. Last 3 seasons we’ve spent 175 million inc 22.5 on Vestergaard and 20 on Carrillo.

bill green died a year ago, I’d say his position is least under threat 😂.

Be careful what you wish for. Reed was a massive part of getting us from league 1 to European football. Can’t fault him for working with what he’s given.

Kruger has apparently been handing out bollockings all day, so can’t see him going anywhere for the time being anyway.

Loans free up some wages (can only increase a certain amount each year due to FFP regs) whilst keeping the player on our books so if they have a great season they come back to us full of confidence or worth more if we sell on. If they have a terrible season it's no worse than them sitting on the bench/ not even making the squad.

“feels like the club are keen on a UK core, maybe since Brexit“

Based on anything or just having a little re-moan?

Maybe if brexit happened in 2009 when the club stated they wanted 50% of the first team squad made up of academy players.

If anything the club has gone the other way over the last couple of years and is less concerned about British/ Irish players.

Wouldn't want Cortese back, it wasn't just that we were 'spending a bit too much' it was that we were spending a stupid amount which was all being covered up by offshore loans - something that has played a part in where we are now

Koeman is apparently interested in coming back - supposedly he was at the man city game and met with the owners briefly. Seems a bit strange though as the Holland job was something he always wanted to do. How much of an upgrade would he be though? Remember winning 1 game between November and January in his last season? That was with Fonte/ VVD/ Wanyama/ Mane/ Pelle and an in form Long in the side.
