Sooo. what do people think about the potential of Ralph leaving? Even heard a rumour of JWP to Everton or Spurs? And now Vesty to the scousers? Thoughts anyone?


1.) 12 Jan 2021 21:51:26
I think we are as safe as can be with Ralph and JWP being loyal to our club but Vesty has not been treated that well in his Saints career so may be drawn by the money and the lights. Having read the finances today may be if we can get good money for him we should.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 09:57:33
I think if we can keep Vestergaard to the end of the season we should. Hopefully, if he can have a better second half of the campaign and increase his stock. Selling him for 40m+ would give us enough transfer budget for the summer. Where we could look to sign, a new CB, new fullback and new attacking mid.

I think the rumour of Ralph leaving is just lazy journalism and so are the other rumours? Don't see why JWP would go to Everton, they're a bigger club than Saints but I don't think he can achieve anything else there that he wouldn't be able to achieve with us. Also, he's probably our most expensive player. I can't imagine we'd let him go for less than 60m.

vestergard was given a hard time when tbf he was not playing well. i would of grabbed 23m rumoured from leicester. the player he is today he is worth 40m min and he should also remember the manager backed him and has given him another chance which he has grabbed with both hands. i would rather sell 4-5 fringe players and keep him and sit him down with a new contract.

I have to say that I'm more worried about Danny Ings leaving. From what I've heard the latest offer from Saints is a long way short of what Danny is asking for.

5.) 20 Jan 2021 18:16:58
He wants a buy out clause the money is fine from latest reports.

Hello again, so deadline day approaches. lots of rumours about various players. anything looking likely? Ideally we need replacement for PEH, a winger and another striker, possibly another CB too. What do you think EDs?


{Ed002's Note - I know nothing more than what has been said. The club has an interest in Ibrahima Diallo who is a DM/M. They have also spoken with Chelsea about available players for a loan and Spurs - Ryan Sessegnon (LB/LW) loan enquiry from Southampton and Burnley.}

1.) 02 Oct 2020 14:49:04
Diallo for €12m seems to be happening in the next few days.

2.) 03 Oct 2020 10:15:59
A lot of rumours flying about but probably 90%+ thin air but if any are true would love to see one or more of RLC, Diallo, Grujic, Sessegnon.
Don't rate Wilson and sadly can't see any way there is any truth in the McTominay rumour.

3.) 04 Oct 2020 17:27:33
We looked a lot better over the last 2 games at CB and Salisu will only strengthen us there. Diallo now gives us options at DM with Oriol and JWP. A bit more creativity in midfield or up front would be icing on the cake now.



14 Sep 2020 08:15:37
Seeing rumours that Spurs want Ings. surely that won't happen?!


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 14 Sep 2020 10:08:44
Levy wouldn’t pay the £40m+ we’d want. I would want £60m at least. And why would he knowingly go to Spurs to be bench fodder for Kane? Money. But hopefully he has more pride than that playing for his boyhood club. Hopefully.

2.) 14 Sep 2020 10:34:17
Unfortunately if Spurs offered £30M + I think our board would seriously consider selling him. I really don't think that Danny would want to go there, like you say SaintGGsy just to warm the bench and come on for 10 minutes when Maureen decides that Kane isn't going to score.

3.) 15 Sep 2020 09:16:10
I hope we're not that greedy, that we would sell a prime 20+ goals a season striker for only 30m. I don't think we would, we held out until we received 75m for VVD.

4.) 15 Sep 2020 13:04:35
And unlike that swine Danny is happy and wants to be here, and not throw his toys out the pram having been paid several million despite not playing for months. Not that I’m still bitter 🤣.

5.) 17 Sep 2020 17:07:32
Hi Ed it's been reported in our local paper today that spurs have made an official enquiry after Ings, was wondering if you had an further insight on the situation please? Ings also hasn't signed a new deal with talks on going. I can imagine the chance to play under Jose and the chance to play alongside some of the players at spurs could be quite attractive for any player.

{Ed002's Note - Danny Ings (S) Spurs have been told by one of his representatives that the player is not available and that he would not be interested in being a bench warmer which would kill off international hopes.}

6.) 17 Sep 2020 20:01:12
Thanks for the update, sorry I know it must be frustrating when people keep asking the same questions over and over.

{Ed002's Note - No problem Phil.}

7.) 19 Sep 2020 13:15:46
Hi Ed
Things have moved on quite a bit since your August update and a number of the ins / outs you listed have either happened, gone elsewhere or seem to be staying put.
Are you aware of any fresh activity?

{Ed002's Note - It has moved on a bit with Emmanuel Dennis (F/RW) but Brugge has placed a significant €20M price tag on the player that Newcastle, Brighton and Watford see as far too much. The player has also been watched by Lille, Southampton, Monaco, Sheffield United, Sampdoria and Borussia Dortmund - and Southampton could see if a deal can be done at a better price involving Hoedt as part of the deal. There is a complication to be addressed in that Anderlecht is more attractive to WH but they only want a loan.}

8.) 19 Sep 2020 16:50:46
Thanks Ed. Doesn't sound too promising so we can only hope they're keeping a couple of good signings low key. Could be a long season without reinforcements.

Anyone think we’ll get Darwin Nunez?

So uninspiring to sign Walcott, doesn’t fit our profile at all. Was hoping for so much more. Anyone think they’ll be anyone else? Heard Rowe from Arsenal?

Thank you, so is do we have any possible likely replacements for PEH lined up?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anyone being "line up". Enquiries were made about the availability of Ozan Tufan and Sanson.}

Ed’s are we even looking into Mckennie as a signing.


{Ed002's Note - Weston McKennie (CM) wants to play in the Premier League and watched by Brighton, Everton and Crystal Palace, but the smarter scouts should have noticed that Schalke have a far better midfield player in Suat Serder which is where the efforts should be going. Hertha Berlin had a declared interest and plenty of money but the player rejected to move as he wants to be playing European football. He could be sold a project but Schalke are looking for €40M for the player and that makes any transfer difficult.}
