Adams signs!

Great News.

Now for two defenders!

Agree1 Disagree0

Glad that it's happened at last. Now need to strengthen defence and clear a few out and I think we could have a good season ahead.

01 Jul 2019 15:12:13
Targett gone for £14m, Che in for £17m - Villa will be doubly happy. That's two attackers in! 2! We might even get another one!

We're definitely vulnerable at the back still, would like two signings there - reports Lemina may be off so there could be plenty of room for further investment.

Ralph also having his touch on the board restructuring - loving our pre season work already.

Ralph is making his mark, pleased that he can shape the team to play the style of football that we all love to see.
We still have to reduce the periferal players
Gallagher (which is a shame)
Shane Long
Charlie Austin
Boufal (we should keep)

Once we clear out the above buy in three more players
Centre Back, Stephens is shaky but could come back hopefully
Any two other plays Mooy and Lookman would do me!

Agree0 Disagree0

Shane long surely worth keeping. Just let him go on a free next summer. We know what he offers and I'm happy to have him as back up for ings and (hopefully) Adams.

Apparently Matty targett off to villa. That really is a shame. Stephens has to go for me. He's worse than hoedt! Championship level AT BEST.

Would love to see boufal come back with a vastly improved attitude, application and end product and be able to jump in with Ralph's philosophy. he'd be a world if he did. can't see it happening myself though.

Not a fan of mooy and not sure about Why lookman doesn't play more. Can any of the eds (001, 002, 025?) answer that?

{Ed002's Note - Everton are lopsided and that results in Everton having some odd line ups.}

29 Jun 2019 21:45:13
A bit vague, but I think I know what you're saying. Cheers ed.

30 Jun 2019 14:53:45
Wouldn't mind keeping Shane for one last season and Boufal provided that his attitude has improved.

I'm hearing rumours of Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan interested in Bertrand. Does anyone know the truth behind this?

Regarding, Inter Milan, does anyone know if they're interested in signing Cedric from us, following his loan. With Vanheusden coming the other way?

{Ed002's Note - Ryan Bertrand (LB) would be sat on the bench at Atletico which other options are not keen on - but it is possible. Would be sat on the bench at Inter as an Ansaldi replacement - seen as an option to Kolarov. Both seem unlikely and are the result of clubs listing out options rather than declaring an interest at this time. Cedic is of no interest to Inter.}

Getting a bit frustrated with this che Adams situation what's the chances tieing up this deal ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to quantify the chances. There is no race and Southampton would like the deal completed.}

27 Jun 2019 10:02:59
Thanks Ed, I know us Saints fans are impatient but it's because we have bought so badly in previous years! Che seems the player we want but I am hearing we have moved onto a Nigerian striker from Italy, +Do you know if this is true?


{Ed002's Note - Would you have a name and I will try and answer.}

27 Jun 2019 18:47:22
David okereke.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - the notes say: David Okereke (S) Brugge have an offer on the table and are discussing details for the transfer of Okereke from Spezia Calcio as a Wesley Moraes replacement. Interest was shown by Crystal Palace but they stepped back as it was seen as unlikely he would be able to obtain a Work Permit unless they paid significantly over the odds for him.}

28 Jun 2019 10:24:02
Good info ed.
I'd much rather we get Adams in. hope it goes through. I'd like to keep a stronger english/ British contingent.

Ed do you have any details on maehle of genk? (Or gent. One of the two)

Saw you post on the Everton page that we had major interest. Are we close to making an offer or even in discussions with his club?

{Ed002's Note - It is as I explained. Southampton have spoken with Genk in January and again a while back.}

28 Jun 2019 12:25:03
Thanks. Hopefully some progress soon.

19 Jun 2019 14:17:22
Hi Eds,

Are you aware of any firm bids in Che Adams? Lots of reports over the past 3 days.

Does the manager situation have any effect either? Seems the owner is happy to asset strip.

{Ed002's Note - I would skip the thought of set stripping but Southampton and others are keen.}

Granted the vast majority will be absolute tosh, I'm happy with what I'm hearing generated around St Mary's this week.

Ralph seems very happy with the club, saying he's here to achieve something special with the club and not just jump ship - we seem to give him the power when it comes to footballing matters. Exactly what he should have.

Now then. Another Liverpool link! McCarthy being touted for what would probably be a few million. I'd be happy for him and Forster to go if we can get in Dragowski - I have seen a bit of him before and being behind another quality young stopper in Lafont at Fiorentina, he and Gunn would set us up nicely for several years.

Several defensive names being linked in both directions - Targett out, potentially any of Maehle, Vanheusden, Webster going the other way - all young and versatile players who Ralph could mould into starlets.

Further upfield, Okereke's name continues to be bounded about - personally don't know anything about him and being young, I feel like he may be another Obafemi on our hands. Adams links still around as well. Personally I think that's a good group of footballers to be linked with.

Realistically, if we can, get rid of Clasie, Forster, maybe McCarthy if Dragowski is in any way plausible, Austin, Reed, McQueen (I hope Targett stays), maybe Lemina to PSG if Rabiot goes.

In, I'd expect two defensive signings and at least one more attacker. The dream is Vanheusden Adams Maehle, but in all honesty I'd take any one of them if we get the right players in.

First time since the Koeman days that I'm genuinely optimistic for the season ahead! #InRalphWeTrust.

Ed are you able to give us any info on clubs interested in targett and Bertrand please?

Targett linked with villa. Apparently there are clubs interested in RB too.

Apparently we are willing to sell one of them. I was hoping we would keep both. I understand Bertrand is maybe blocking targetts progression but I just don't think letting RB go is a wise choice. I still think he's too good to let go, and could also cover centre back too.


{Ed002's Note - (a) Fulham and Aston Villa. (b) Not aware of any.}

Thanks ed!

Moussa Djenepo set to sign for Saints. Will join after the African Cup of Nations on 1st July.

Great. Not waiting until the end of the Transfer Window.

Shows real intent.

Get your season ticket now!

Looks raw but could be a new "mane". Very happy with it.

14 Jun 2019 10:00:08
big discrepancy in reported price 10-13m looks like very good business. please all remember mane though who didn't set the world alight at first and give the guy a chance. is clearly raw with skill and pace so let's get behind him and encourage him to try things. bring in a striker and a centre half and hopefully a good start to the season and let's look forward and be positive, really need to ship some out though to big a squad will stifle progress.

13 Jun 2019 13:53:46
Hi Ed,

Surprised I'm the first to ask, but any truth in the Rabiot rumours that are doing the rounds online? Interested to hear just how wide of the mark those are.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any rumours involving Southampton - who he won't be joining.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2019 18:10:34
Only thing wider would be links to Messi or Neymar. Would be surprised if he doesn’t join a CL club come August.

13 Jun 2019 18:20:51
I saw that rumour on Twitter. nearly choked on my pint. hilarious haha.

10 Jun 2019 21:22:13
Apparently saints have offered €20 million for Mateta from Mainz. Scored fair amount of goals and looks like a potential Pelle type player but with a bit more pace.
