Seen valencia are parting ways with quite a few players:

Parejo, Rodrigo, Coquelin, Kondogbia, Mangala, Diakhaby, Gameiro, Cillessen, Rubén Sobrino and Correia

I know they are for the most part old (er) but might we get one for a good price and have them succeed in our squad? Kondogbia would be a fine addition under RH I think.

Hi Eds

Lots of rumours about potential CBs and we know the long term RB targets. But are you getting a sense of any CM targets to replace PEH in the squad. He has a particular skill set, similar to Romeu, but we need more than 1 ball winner in the squad.



{Ed002's Note - The only enquiries that I am aware of relate to Fenerbahce's Ozan Tufan (with Fenerbahce willing to sell as money is an issue) and Morgan Sanson (but there is no chance of that happening).}

Thanks. Tufan is a player I'm not aware of. Something to check out. Cheers.

11 Jul 2020 11:04:09
Tbh if he stays, we’ve got a ready made replacement in Harry Reed, every bit as good as Hojbjerg.

11 Jul 2020 16:02:17
Who knows what will happen with Reed. It's a mystery why he didn't build on the great appearances he made under Koeman.

I have just seen saints kit for next season, personally I don't like it, Saints should always be red and white striped shirts, tradition is there for a reason. what do others make of it.

{Ed002's Note - The Press Release implies it is an anniversary kit reflecting the kit from when the club was founded.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2020 14:47:14
Anniversary kit would be our third strip, which I love, similar to 2010/ 11 season.

First kit reminds me of Middlesbrough when they were in the PL in 2017, bit tacky, but better than the ‘bra’ phase we’ve been going through of late. Bring back 2014-16 strips, I loved those. Sponsor also isn’t really in keeping with our colours being the massive ugly shape it is.

08 Jul 2020 17:59:59
I like it, only so much you can do with stripes ever year. Traditionally we’re red and white (with a little black) but fairly often we’ve changed it up, 1989 was the only year of the 80’s we had a striped shirt and 15 years out of the last 40 have been something other than stripes (17 if you count the Pony tick shirt)

Away shirt will be same as the third just black instead of white btw.

08 Jul 2020 22:22:08
I really like it, as someone who tries to buy at least the home and away shirts as a way to support the club every season, it’s nice to have something other than red and white stripes in the wardrobe.

Something a little different every third or fourth season is fine by me.

As a business move it is probably quite savvy by the club to try to invigorate sales, instead of people not wanting the new kit if it was just another red and white stripe kit that many fans already have.

So it may boost sales this season and next when they will invariably return back to the favored stripes.

{Ed047's Note - I just had a look, really quite like it, nice kit.

What a great result today, fantastic performance and full marks to every player probably the best effort for years and hopefully the we can't win at home is now behind us great to see Adams get his goal which should now free him up to score many more for the saints. l hav previously been critical of walker peters but obviously Ralph knows a player when he sees one so maybe a deal can be done with spurs. looking forward now to next season and hopefully we can have a season pushing towards the European places rather than the battle at the wrong end of the table.

Half Time: Saints 1-0 Man City

We have got our game plan exactly right so far. With a bit of luck, soak up the pressure, and use City's lax defence to pounce on any mistakes or counter with pace and try and catch the back four out.

McCarthy has been fantastic - positioning exactly right, some good stops but none he shouldn't be saving, good for his confidence after Arsenal.

Walker-Peters has been superb offensively, and has done well to tie up Sterling, though a few dodgy clearances when City have been pressing.

Bednarek superb in putting his body on the line. Stephens and Bertrand I haven't seen much from but that means they're doing their job.

Romeu has been solid albeit on a yellow, I fear he may be off unless subbed before the hour.

Armstrong, Redmond, Ings and Ward-Prowse have even dynamic, quick, and eager to pounce at the back, as shown by Armstrong on Zinchenko for the goal.

And Che, awesome. Having not score in 15 months to try that and to pull it off - the team looked so happy for him and a shame there were no fans there to see it.

9 Brits and an U23 international in the starting XI - great to see saints doing everything right on the pitch for once.

I still fear a sucker punch but if we can hang on for a point, considering the dismantling City handed out to Liverpool, what a great performance it would be.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2020 21:06:43
Absolutely fantastic performance by the players, coaches, fake crowd, kit cleaners, everyone - awesome!

Had a bit of luck but with nothing riding on that game except mathematical safety (achieved! ) I’m so impressed with the passion and dedication of that team.

Awesome awesome awesome. To come from a 9-0 and do that later in the season.


05 Jul 2020 21:15:49
In my opinion that was Stephens best defensive display ever. The whole team played well and a special mention to Che Adams. What a way to score your first Saints goal.

05 Jul 2020 23:47:25
Stephens has certainly come a long way - didn’t think he had a place in the side earlier in the year but he was absolutely phenomenal tonight - every single shot or decisive pass he or Bednarek were there and putting their bodies on the line.

Outstanding and amazing to see when really a 0-3 reverse wouldn’t have batted many eyelids and nothing rode on it for us.

By no means is a back line of Bertrand, Stephens, Bednarek, Walker-Peters going to be watertight, but with Vokins and Klarer coming through, and Danso and Vestergaard in support we aren’t in a terrible place. I would like both Danso and KWP to be made permanent - I think Danso could be class but we haven’t seen enough of him yet.

RB, CB, CM, ATT on the Christmas list as always. Hopefully Ings and Adams can form a partnership and Ralph can utilise his 4-2-2-2 for the majority of the coming season.

Only five points off a potential European spot - were certainly looking up rather than over our shoulders now!

29 Jun 2020 16:01:35
I am not surprised that saints don't win so many at home as we don't seem to be able to dominate teams like we use too, those older fans like myself will well remember the Dell roar which seemed to really galvanize the team, fans pay there money and have every right to criticize, although we should always remember that we are all on the same side and as long as every player is giving 100% they can do no more . we should also note that errors must be allowed for as we enjoy the mistakes that others make.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2020 18:05:54
Well NS I'm not surprised either, although I suggest it is the lack of atmosphere at St Mary's, coupled with the (apparently) acceptable bad habit of some of supporters booing/ heckling our own players. I'm sure that if everyone sang, cheered and supported the lads - we'd be 5 places higher up the table!

27 Jun 2020 09:00:44
Hi Ed - any news on where Hojbjerg may be headed or possible incomings?

{Ed002's Note - Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) is wanted by Spurs and Leicester and has been proposed to Everton as a well priced midfield solution. Spurs would offer Kyle Walker-Peters as part of the deal but Southampton are in urgent need of cash.}

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Jun 2020 11:37:44
any ed's know what's going on with Salisu?
Heard he's stopped talks with Rennes in favour of talking to Southampton but he's unlikely to get a UK work permit.

{Ed002's Note - Mohammed Salisu (CB) Norwich were very keen on taking the Valladolid centre back in January but will face opposition from Wolves, Southampton and Everton. Manchester United and Valencia have been credited with scouting the player by his club, but they have also said the are in talks with Atletico Madrid. Rennes agreed a fee with Valladolid for Salisu but his agent rejected a move to France in favour of a move to the Premier League. He will see what options are available.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Great performance tonight can't remember the last time I ended up disappointed that we only won 3-0.first five minutes it was all Norwich but once we got started we were different class. thr team made so many chances and great to see the goals shared around, would love to push on for a top ten finish to the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2020 09:12:04
Great result by taking 3 points from Norwich City FC. Perhaps we could do the double by taking their exciting and impressive young right back ( who can also play at left back ) in the transfer market to fill one. of our weakest positions. Max Aaron’s is a proven Premiership Player.

21 Jun 2020 21:50:26
got no chance of getting Aarons, probably going to end up at a london club for £30 mil.

22 Jun 2020 08:08:35
Saints Saint Saint. Note your negative comments re the possible purchase of Aaron’s as NO CHANCE.1.Spurs apparently have no cash.2.Chelsea defence appears ok. 3.WHU league position looks precarious.4Crystal Palace not as attractive destination as SFC for player.5. Arsenal maybe? if they are in need. That equates to about a 50% chance for SFC (providing we could get LEVY to bid for us at around 12-15 million. ) I’m sure the player himself will not cherish the possibility of Champioship League next season!

{Ed001's Note - don't Saints have to sell to raise money?}

22 Jun 2020 11:36:31
afaik spurs have already put in a 30 million bid with arsenal sniffing around too - if that turns to a bidding war, the already very slim chance of signing him would be zero.

Considering the 3 players we've had significant links to lately (Salisu, Disasi and Zeefuik) would cost us less than £30million combined I can't see us smashing our transfer record to land him

Depending on what spurs offer for Hojbjerg we may not even spend £15 million this transfer window.

22 Jun 2020 13:46:37
I’m not suggesting paying anything like 30 mill. for 1 player (that was your quote) . Perhaps with the possibility of potential sales of Hojbjerg; Vestergaard Forster EllynouissiCarrilo Lemina Hoedt income for at least 2 decent incoming quality players plus a chunk of. last seasons account shortfall paid off. Eds001 Have you ever heard of a negotiated conditional offer. on a property or land subject to the sale of their own property (within a time limit)? Maybe this Business is conducted in similar fashion and expect several negotiations to be underway at the present time.

14 Jun 2020 14:24:44
Saints are playing at Norwich on Friday and 1 Norwich player has just tested positive for the virus. I'm still wondering if it's too early to restart football. Any thoughts people?

{Ed002's Note - I think it is a very good question.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2020 17:07:08
Agree that it is too early to restart, sadly money talks. It may well be a good morale boost to the nation for the time being as there don’t seem to have been any adverse effects in Germany/ Italy/ Spain as yet.

I don’t think France were right to cancel their league so early and the matches can and should be finished, but I think use July and August to do that and start the new season in September if necessary.

In the long run, I don’t think finishing the season will lead to many if any unnecessary deaths, and it may well save a few clubs further down the leagues if the money is used correctly - which of course it won’t - and Liverpool will deservedly win their crown.

It will hopefully just accelerate the demise of the money grabbing element when people start to turn their backs seeing £80m spent on footballers in a couple of months’ time when that could be spent on saving however many thousands of people with proper PPE and funding. But we’ll see.

14 Jun 2020 19:17:48
I'm also thinking that all the players are going out to play on Friday knowing that someone within the Norwich squad has tested positive for the virus. Just wondering if it could mess with a few heads.

15 Jun 2020 23:31:01
For the first time ever on this site, I can bring my Applied Physics and over 20 years of statistical analysis (but no geek! ) . i have been shouted at, insulted, laughed at and mocked . but I think with my head and not with drama. I won't lecture you, i will leave two facts that are FACTS . under 65 deaths . ONE PER MILLION.
under 16 deaths . TWO IN 15 MILLION both sadly gravelly ill.


17 Jun 2020 03:35:21
think the only people worrying about a virus that has killed .065% of the population in the worst hit country and is dropping off pretty much of as quickly as came (much like the original sars from 2003) are the people falling for the lamestream media's okie doke

even the WHO (not that I'd actually trust them) say you need to be within a metre of someone who has it for more than 15 mins in an enclosed area.
It's incredibly unlikely any football player will catch it from another during a game.
