Saints linked to Ethan Ampadu. definitely fits the brief of a versatile DC or DM and is still only 20 years old.

Manny561

1.) 17 Aug 2021 17:56:59
Yes please.


2.) 17 Aug 2021 18:08:27
Newcastle also looking at Ampadu.


3.) 17 Aug 2021 21:53:14
Come on Saints. This is the chance to prove we mean business. Pay the money, get it done.


4.) 18 Aug 2021 14:43:45
Sadly a loan is off the table for Ampadu as we can’t loan 2 from the same side (Chelsea) .


5.) 19 Aug 2021 07:56:33
We’ve only loaned one player from Chelsea?


6.) 19 Aug 2021 11:30:33
Correct, but you can’t loan 2 from the same club, so no more loans from Chelsea. Loans from other clubs would be ok.

{Ed002's Note - Only one more loan is possible.}


7.) 19 Aug 2021 12:32:56
Absolutely. A maximum of 2 loans allowed. So only one more which last year Ralph saved until Jan for Minimino.

{Ed002's Note - Two at any one time but a maximum of four (excepting exceptional circumstances over goalkeepers.}


 

 

30 Jul 2021 09:50:07
Thinking of our LB issue and with Man Utd's Williams looking out of sight - what about Sessegnon from Spurs? Or is he just another LW conversion like Djenepo?

Manny561

{Ed002's Note - Southampton have already signed Ryan Bertrand's replacement.}


1.) 30 Jul 2021 15:24:41
But Ralph still after a LB back, hence the Djenepo experiment. I wouldn’t want to risk him in a PL game.


 

 

15 Jul 2021 14:28:47
If Danny Ings was to go, who would fill that gap?
Abraham?

Manny561

{Ed002's Note - Adam Armstrong perhaps.}


1.) 15 Jul 2021 15:13:40
I see Armstrong as another Adams. Good player, after a prolific Championship season, may take a while to come good. Could he hit the ground running?


2.) 17 Jul 2021 16:23:31
Hi Ed’s, do you know if we made the 2nd bid for Armstrong? Lots of mixed reports. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know I am afraid.}


3.) 20 Jul 2021 12:43:26
no worries, thanks for replying anyway.


 

 

15 Jul 2021 11:55:33
A report in the Express says that if we were to sell Ings to Spurs, we could be interested in a player plus cash deal for either: Winks, Sessegnon or Skipp. I'd be happy with any of those, but on a permanent deal not a loan. Thoughts?

Manny561

1.) 15 Jul 2021 12:42:28
Add Rodon to that list too.


2.) 15 Jul 2021 13:20:46
Give us Winks, Skipp and Sessegnon and they can have Ings. If they want Vestergaard too give us another £25m so we can buy a striker and another defender. Don’t want to be doing any dealings with Levy though. Don’t like Tottenham the club and don’t like Levy. He’ll smarm his way into getting Ings for a used tissue off of our soft touch of a board.


3.) 15 Jul 2021 20:00:45
I don't think that Saints really want to do business with spurs at all after getting shafted over Hojberg.


 

 

28 Jun 2021 12:22:23
Would anyone like Saints to go after Calum Chambers? He could cover CB and RB. He seems to have stalled and doesn't play enough. Worth a punt - maybe on loan?

Manny561

1.) 01 Jul 2021 14:05:59
He probably would be good as cover but I’d like us to prioritise the spots for the first XI players. Ask for Chambo and we can get the old band back together at this rate!

Seen that Man Utd keeper Henderson would like a loan move after not replacing De Gea as No1.

Should we be interested?

Manny561

 

 

31 Aug 2021 17:33:54
Sky saying Burnley offered McKennie on loan. What.?
Please go get him Saints! He was almost with us before Juve came in.

Manny561

 

 

31 Aug 2021 13:14:16
Could we rival Leicester and get Lookman on loan please. Free up Dejnepo for a loan to improve. Maybe a loan to Celtic and do a Moi - come back stronger.

Manny561

1.) 31 Aug 2021 15:42:24
Great idea….


2.) 31 Aug 2021 17:16:58
Assuming no one has watched his videos and checked out his stats 🙈.
But I agree, let’s see if loaning him out will help him improve.


 

 

29 Aug 2021 11:09:42
Any ideas or (realistic) preferences for the No6 Ralph would like? I would love Winks on loan.

Manny561

1.) 30 Aug 2021 11:38:24
Not Winks imo. I think he'd be decent if we played in a midfield 3 but not enough of a presence to play in the pivot.

We need a play winning midfielder that's also quite technical and can pick a pass. Watching Romeu on Saturday was painful at times. Taking up good positions on the pitch but not able to technically pick that killer ball.

Genuinely think we should play Adams in a deeper position.


2.) 30 Aug 2021 14:17:46
Romeu as I have written below, is a tough tackler who breaks up attacks . but . the modern game has no place for someone who’s only attribute is that.
His positional play is awful, his passing is not great, I won’t even bother checking the stats on his ‘though balls’ etc as virtually zero will be the answer.
But does the manager have the balls to not play him .
And JWP for that matter.
Adams is a very intelligent player . gets very little opportunity to make that superb pass.


3.) 30 Aug 2021 16:01:47
Is JWP and Armstrong our best Midfield pair then? I’d be happy with that, but again that means JWP sits a bit deeper.


4.) 30 Aug 2021 17:29:17
Manny
It’s a bit complicated - Ralph wants to play the very high press, we are good at it… BUT and it’s a big but .
Firstly It relies very heavily on keeping the ball once you have gained possession.
we have several players who lose the ball, be that poor passing or being turned over. Ie Redmond, Djenepo, Walcott, Romeu
It also relies on quick players if we lose the ball .
Romeu and JWP are way too slow to recover the ball .

Armstrong can press, keep the ball, move the ball quickly, recover quickly . so yes he has to be in the midfield.

If Ralph is going to continue this bizarre selection of Djenepo, then he needs to back off from his pressing.

I’d love to see

Tino Bednerek Salisu Perraud
Mo Armstrong Tella KWP
Armstrong Broja

This team can attack and defend.


5.) 30 Aug 2021 22:02:43
The issue is glaringly obvious - you can get away with playing one but not both. Neither are creative and both are painfully slow in delivering a forward ball - I’m not even talking about a defence splitting ball.

How many PL teams would pick Romeu as a starter. Stuart gets A for effort but only B for ability. Midfield and GK is our problem but probably strong enough, just, to put perform the other 5 sides in the bottom 6 league.


 

 

26 Aug 2021 17:33:54
I'm very happy with the transfer window this summer. Two big players out was sad to see but both on the last year of their contract and decent money received. Lots of great young talent in, as well as Moi coming back into the squad. Looking forward to seeing what Lycano will add. Ralph hinted there maybe another 6 coming in (fingers crossed) . Credit where credits due - great job Southampton FC recruitment team!

Manny561

1.) 27 Aug 2021 14:15:15
Apparently we are looking at Kang-in Lee an attacking midfielder available on a free from Valencia.

Looks like we are done. Some good names still going around, McKennie, Minimino and Barclay. Any bets on Saints pulling something out of the hat late?

Great signing!
I’m sure somebody mentioned before, but thinking about the reasons behind playing Tino ahead of KWP in the first two games may have been a Ralph’s statement to him that Saints will play young players in the PL - so sign the contract!

Ralph looked a broken man on the touch line today. Draws are ok, but if you don’t win, you are under pressure. Fundamentally he eeds to play players in their position. As good as KWP is he had a few opportunities to deliver from the left, but he checked inside to his right. Perraud needs to be LB from now on. If Livremento can’t be dropped, the he has to moved into LM. Also Adams and Armstrong are too similar - we need contrast, maybe a Tella or Broja. Chelsea next…….

Clean sheets are what we didn’t have last season so a massive improvement so far. Fingers crossed now that we can make the correct decisions in the final third and take some of those chances. Hats off to Ralph and the team for a great foundation. COYR!

The main reason we got something from that game……Ralph made a good change. Hooking Walcott at half time was a great sub. Let’s hope he continues with the changes (when required) .
