Ryan Bertrand to play tonight. Clasie not yet ready but he's back in training so hopefully not too long before he's back

Gaston on the bench?!

Ryan Bertrand hopes to be back training on Monday. Clasie not for a while yet.

Seems odd about Clasie being injured for so long , when asked two weeks ago RK said that all the players apart from the long termers would all be fit and back in full training after the international break . Now he says he is not close to being fit , odd . I hope we haven't bought another Gaston and in the position Clasie plays he will get injured in this league if he is a bit lightweight . We only saw him close up in the one game he was involved in at St Mary's and bingo longish injury . I know I'm a pessimist but it doesn't look like he will be injury free very often.


2.) 11 Sep 2015 09:50:09
He didn't ever say they'd definitely be back for the West Brom game, it was just a target in his opinion when asked by reporters. Even though Bertrand will be back in training on Monday he has not trained or played a match for three months now, so it might not be until mid to late October we see him closer full match fitness.

As for Clasie even though it seemed like an innocuous injury at the time, having a person's dead weight land on the back of your ankle could cause a lot of damage to the ligaments, there would be no good in rushing him back if it could lead to further setbacks. And it seems silly to compare him to Ramirez given his main issue has always been his fitness and not so much actual injuries.


3.) 11 Sep 2015 10:42:23
Don't agree about Gaston's fitness , every report has said that he has picked up knocks and nothing has ever been said about him being unfit just very injury prone .


4.) 11 Sep 2015 17:44:02
The only thing that Koeman has said about Ramirez's current absence from the first team came back in pre-season when he said was left behind because he wasn't at the fitness level needed to be to play. Prior to that Ramirez has had three injuries with Saints, a hamstring, a thigh and ankle ligaments all of which happened before we loaned him out to Hull. I think we need to accept that it's not an injury that's keeping him out of the team here.

Heard a rumour this morning that Erwin Koeman is not in Switzerland with the Saints squad but is in Spain. He could be looking at a player but I wonder if he's checking out Barcelona ahead of a possible move for him and RoKo in the summer. Also rumour resurfaced about RoKo going to Newcastle

teejaysaint

1.) 06 Mar 2015 11:26:59
Or he could be taking a long weekend break!


2.) 06 Mar 2015 13:27:02
That could also be true Saint Martin.


3.) 06 Mar 2015 13:32:05
I think your a bit bored mate.


4.) 06 Mar 2015 17:22:36
Why on earth would he leave Saints for NUFC? Bigger fanbase and stadium yes, but I think its blatantly obvious we are above them in every other aspect of Football. Academy, owners, facilities current position. Where did you hear this rumour? I didn't hear it the first time let alone the resurfaced one.


5.) 06 Mar 2015 18:32:27
Neil Moxley. Last weeks Sunday People


6.) 06 Mar 2015 19:38:07
Erwin is in Davos with the rest of the first team squad. He's in the pictures and videos uploaded to the official site, from yesterday's ice hockey (!) and today's activities on the ski slopes.


7.) 07 Mar 2015 02:23:54
NUFC would love RoKo but then i'm sure RoKo would love Messi. Nothing story. Thanks for the chuckle but I am really not worried about him leaving for NUFC. How many decent managers would want to work for mike ashley?


8.) 08 Mar 2015 18:44:17
Koeman ain't going anywhere it's just boring boring media gossip as they haven't got anything to write about. Stop panicking and concentrate on a superb finish to this season. 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th would be a fantastic achievement after the start of the season with the exodus of players and manager we experienced. We WILL get better and better under Koeman the board and the academy (what about the under 21's getting to the final) Players are being lined up already for next season if we can't stop certain players leaving. I predict an upset at Chelsea next match. COYR's

Victor Valdes has accepted an offer to join Man Utd so Anders Lindegaard could be available. He could be just right as Fraser Forster's back up. What do other posters think ?

teejaysaint

{Ed002's Note - Lindegaard and Amos are both available.}


1.) Would love this.
I always felt he deserved more game time at utd when de gea looked dodgy the first couple of years. Always look good when he played and it seemed de gea was only getting the nod because of the fee utd paid for him


2.) Lindegaard is good enough to be playing regular first team premier league football. What would we want to sign to be back up. Granted would be a good signing for us but just can't see it happening. We do need someone though.


3.) Amos could be a good option? And provide good back up while he develops

I hope its wrong but a friend of mine who claims to be in the know says that Southampton's transfer business is finished for this transfer window.

teejaysaint

1.) What's that smell? Smells like bull. well you get the idea with that.


2.) Aha that explains why taider didn't sign tonight I guess. I can picture it now him poised to sign his contract then les barges in yanks the contract from him and says don't need you now sunny we are all off to las vegas with the bonuses we just got no money left for transfers toodle pip. As he runs out the door with crisp 50s flying out his back pocket.


3.) 05 Aug 2014 21:44:28
They are too busy tucking the money under kl mattress to bother running the club


4.) As the expression hopefully
they will turn up like buses
fingers crossed
bit annoying Newcastle have signed 9 players
god knows who were trying to get
but i'd like to think these players know each other from either national or club sides


5.) Well with Koeman saying that he wants to bolster our squad with '2 or 3 more signings' last weekend and also saying that Taider would bring quality to the squad should we get him in, I would strongly doubt that your friend is correct. I would also suggest that Koeman is both clever and experienced as a manager and I would trust him to realize that we need to strengthen in certain areas. I would seriously question this idea that we are done for business.


6.) Did you know the word 'gullible' isn't actually in the dictionary!?


7.) 05 Aug 2014 22:27:02
With the information I received today, I'd say the first half of Salisbury St John's post is closer to the truth.


8.) 05 Aug 2014 23:05:13
I think Aussie saint that while the gullible does not appear it the dictionary it is mentioned in the boardroom of SFC when referring to the fans


9.) Really Ozzy saint? That's unreal. I have always thought that was a real word. I will look at life differently from now on, thanks


10.) Whilst I don't agree with the original poster, the hysterical replies smack of fans affected by denial.

I see to recall similar responses whenever someone warned about Shaw leaving. "he won't go, he loves this club, he loves the fans, he signed a new contract. oh"

There is an emerging trend which continues to suggest that Southampton don't have as much money as thought. This would explain some of the hard haggling over Forster and Rojo, as well as why there has been less activity than hoped for.

Nothing to panic about. Board seem to be doing a good job. Pragmatic and careful.

I've just seen some stats that said that Saints are 5th in the list of chances created/ strikes at goal this season. The top 4 are the top 4 teams in the premiership. That either shows that our strikers are not up to scratch or that every keeper that plays against us plays the game of his life.

teejaysaint

1.) 22 Oct 2018 12:51:08
My theory: During the week, our Strikers train against the immobile Fraser Forster. Every shot they take in the week goes in with ease. On Saturday's they play against decent GK's and all their tame shots that they were scoring in the week can't find the net against all the decent Prem GK's.

{Ed001's Note - harsh but fair. Though you have to remember you have Shane Long and Nathan Redmond taking a large proportion of the shots - I doubt they hit the target in training either.}


2.) 23 Oct 2018 09:39:10
Honestly, Ed what are your thoughts on both players you've mentioned? Are they Prem quality? Do they bring anything to our squad? I know everyone loves Shane Long because of his tireless work, but does that actually do anything to improve the squad on match days?

{Ed001's Note - I think neither are good enough as even squad fillers. Long in particular is just pointless. He does not even add what someone like Giroud does in terms of set up play. All he does is run around in the wrong places like a headless chicken. The very least I expect of a player is for them to work hard, so, when the only thing you can say of a player is that he works hard, I would say he is clearly not good enough.

As for Redmond, he lacks intelligence. He doesn't have the right attitude either, he does not listen to coaches and instructions well as he thinks he knows better. There is the potential there but there is little chance of him realising it while he is with Saints. He needs to be taken down a peg or three.}


 

 

17 Jul 2018 13:48:43
Seems like Danny Welbeck could be available soon. Worth a cheeky bid from Saints?

teejaysaint

1.) 17 Jul 2018 16:50:24
Interesting idea, although I'm not convinced he'd be the answer to our goalscoring woes. He's not exactly renowned for being clinical.


2.) 17 Jul 2018 17:50:27
Never scored more than 10 in a season, can't see him being that much better than what we've already got, and If some fans are worried about Ings is too injury prone then I think they'd have a fit over Welbeck aha.


3.) 17 Jul 2018 18:33:08
To be fair when he has played he's had a decent goalscoring return for Arsenal. Probelm for him is his constant injuries and the fact that Arsenal already have Aubameyang, Lacazette and previously Alexis Sanchez ahead of him in the pecking order.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 09:25:10
I thought about this and he could be a good signing. but in truth I'm not sure it would work out.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 10:04:12
The thing is we have problems with any player above 75k a week but all in all I think it would be a good signing.


6.) 18 Jul 2018 16:42:36
Another name to throw into the hat is Salomon Rondon. I know at 28 he's a bit older than our usual signings but he's proven premiership quality and scored goals for a poor WBA side last season. Could be available for £12-£14 million.


7.) 18 Jul 2018 19:56:40
I’d take Chadli and Rondon tbh both have attributes that will benefit our squad.


8.) 19 Jul 2018 10:17:06
Chadli is rubbish and all about the tricks hence he hasn’t held down a place anywhere Rondon seems honest and hard working however hardly going to push us froward would love to see Obafemi and Gallagher in the squad.


 

 

27 Jun 2018 15:39:17
If Armstrong is a replacement for Davis we now need a replacement for Tadic. Any thoughts about who we should go for?

teejaysaint

1.) 27 Jun 2018 15:52:37
Elyounoussi in before the end of the week. I'd imagine Sims/ Hesketh and Maybe Boufal if he doesn't go will get more time. Plus Gabbiadini prefers playing deeper.


 

 

15 Mar 2018 00:39:06
On a positive note I don't think Liverpool will be trying to poach him.

Barca president says that Arda Turan could be loaned out for a while. Come on Roko sign him up.

Sorry but that was pathetic. 2-0 ahead and only need to see the game out so we bring on 2 of the smallest and least defensive minded players. After that I think that we are going to struggle to finish this season anywhere other than bottom 3. How Hughes can think we'll see a game out with players that can't tackle is beyond me.

I have to let my head rule my heart and say that I think we will finish the season around 13th or 14th place. Not sure about MH but we have to give him a run until Christmas and if we're in bottom 6 look for someone else but that makes it awkward for the January transfer window having someone new that doesn't know the players or what positions that need strengthening. Also depends on who is available to come in and take over. With our recent record of manager ins and outs a lot of managers wouldn't even look at us.

I don't think we would get Dembele but Origi possibly has a point to prove and I think he could fit our style of play. Still hoping that we might get Alcacer last minute.

I'd love to see Paco Alcacer come to Saints but I certainly wouldn't buy Ings especially for the stupid money that Liverpool have valued him at. I don't think he's much different to Austin and is another injury prone player that's likely to spend more time in the treatment room than on the pitch.

I think that we should go all out for Brendon Rodgers. I'm sure he wants a challenge.

I think we need to change sooner rather than later to give the new man enough time to get to know the players and decide what he wants in the transfer window.

I agree that we need someone with a new approach but we need to give him time which surely means giving MH his P45 soon. I think that MH is too set in his ways and is unable to change his approach. He has very little idea of how to set up his defence and even though he was a pretty good striker himself he doesn't seem able to get the strikers we have scoring.

Good article figo. Agree with pretty much everything you say. A few seasons ago I would have backed us to beat Brighton every time at home but feel that at present a draw is the most likely result however if we can come out and play like we were before the international break we could sneak a win. We certainly can't afford to lose home matches to the likes of Brighton who will probably finish the season around the same league position as ourselves.
