Carillo is officially off our payroll.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 19:17:48
What a waste of £19m! Believe we did something similar though for only about £4m on buying Vegard Forren about six years back. Never should have allowed Pellegrino get his hands in the chequebook in the first place.

Now hopefully Hoedt is back off to Lazio and Boufal back to Angers, and we should have a nicely trimmed squad. Disappointed to see Klarer go, I believe big things were tipped of him.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 19:26:05
If we can get Hoedt and Boufal off the wage bill as well, it will put us in a stronger position during the January window if we NEED to do business. All of the bad transfer decisions after RK left the club had put us in a dodgy financial position. While I respect every player that togs out for us, all the above players were surplus to requirements. RH has done a great job if all those players are now off the wage bill.

3.) 05 Oct 2020 20:19:42
You do know it's not the manager who sets up their transfer away right? How has Ralph done a good job in getting rid of them?

4.) 05 Oct 2020 20:30:44
Has anyone heard anything about whether Gunn is going anywhere? All the talk a couple of weeks ago was that either Gunn or Forster would go but as FF has been on the bench so far this season I can't see Gunn getting the No.2 keepers spot back so surely needs to move for the sake of his career.

5.) 06 Oct 2020 07:41:12
I think there's still a period where lower league clubs can sign players on loan. So hopefully he'll be off to the championship on loan.

I'm just relieved we've managed to ship the deadweight from our wage bill.



05 Sep 2020 15:36:27
Hearing that Saints are interested in Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun.




03 Sep 2020 19:02:18
Rumours starting to circulate about Saints bidding for Teun Koopmeiners from AZ Alkmaar. Has anyone else heard anything?


1.) 04 Sep 2020 19:38:39
Would love that to come off but can’t see it happening with bigger clubs linked, feel he’d move to a CL club if he were to move.



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.}

1.) 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.

2.) 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.

3.) 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.


4.) 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.

Cedric to Arsenal?


1.) 29 Jan 2020 18:14:44
Really hope we keep onto him. KWP is young and might do okay. or might just do nothing which is good we are only getting him on loan. Letting Cedric go especially right now midseason is a huge mistake and we will regret it.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 21:11:11
It doesn't really make much sense to me. Cedric has been good for us this season, granted he has stated he wants to leave. But we let first team regular like him go out on loan until the end of season and then he leaves for free in the summer when his contract expires doesn't make financial sense.

3.) 30 Jan 2020 07:38:10
It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Cedric is clearly enjoying his football again and playing well. We are on the best form for many seasons and playing some good football. Arsenal very hit and miss, not having a great season. so that’s ok you have Cedric and I’m glad we can be of service to you Each spot in the PL is worth millions so keep hold of Cedric til the end. I am wondering if it’s just a rumour and that he will be trained up to slot in come start of next season. Cedric is certainly not doing a Van Dyke sulk so makes no sense.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 08:02:44
However we would be silly not to take the money if he is set on leaving free in the summer.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 12:21:41
Just checked out prize money per place; approx 2M per spot, less than I thought. But with our current form could we really make Europe.

6.) 30 Jan 2020 12:49:17
Supposedly the money is 1million loan fee, surely not worth losing a reasonably in form settled defence player go for the sake of 1 million.

I think Ralph left Redmond on too long. Ward Prowse not anywhere near his best.




02 Feb 2021 21:01:57
This is what you get when the board does not back the manager.


1.) 02 Feb 2021 21:50:18
Suppose it’s var’s fault again tonight boys😂😂.

2.) 02 Feb 2021 22:11:56
The tackle by our player in the 2nd minute was absolutely disgraceful! But we didn’t man mark and got punished! However . Bednerek sending off scandalous! What did the referee see no one else did! . any opinions from the Ed’s?

{Ed001's Note - looked like a dive to me and Martial seemed to tell Bednarek he never thought it was a foul as well.}

3.) 02 Feb 2021 22:52:33
But The referee has the advantage of watching the incident again and again . what did he see that warranted a sending off? I’m not even sure bednerek touched the player! And the more I saw it the more I believe that! What is going on at PGMOL.



26 Jan 2021 22:52:35
I thought that we were poor tonight. Maybe injuries/ suspensions have caught up with us.


1.) 27 Jan 2021 09:41:49
There was only one thing, but a VERY big thing! Wrong with our game tonight. You can not play the high line pressing game if your defence doesn’t pass accurately. Our normal back four, play through and over the press of the opponents. That results in the opponent backing off from a too higher press because they know Saints will beat it. Vestergard is a master of this, spraying the ball around at will. Our usual back line absolutely know the drill, so Saints can play high with no fear because they know they will get the ball. Last night you saw our defence trying to dribble through a high press and even worse, pass to their high press! And they knew it! Second half they were sat high just waiting for our mistakes . Stephens was awful! Hesitant, poor passing . and they just lapped up our mistakes. Ralph should have shouted ‘stop F**** around with the ball’ . if defence can’t pass you can’t play the high press!

2.) 27 Jan 2021 10:34:10
Agreed about the defence but the forwards just aren't firing. Not sure what's happened with Walcott but passing is off as is his shooting. I think fatigue is a factor and we do need to get players back to fitness.
One final question. why so many muscle problems?, and through training.

3.) 27 Jan 2021 12:34:09
No matter how much you train, do leg strengthening, the bottom line is, that muscles and joints have limits to their movement/ stretch. ACL is a classic; look up the structure of the knee, amazed more players don’t suffer ACL problems (I’m two knee ops down so did lots of reading on it) as for muscles . it’s that stretch for a ball, that stretch for a tackle . takes the muscles beyond their working range.



04 Dec 2020 15:10:26
Good to hear that Bednarek has signed a new contract and Danny is back in training.




07 Oct 2020 16:21:11
Stuart Armstrong has tested positive for C.V. 19. Don't know how much close contact he had with the rest of the Saints squad over the past few days.

It's nothing to do with whether or not someone is loyal to the club. I've been supporting Saints for almost 60 years through good times and bad but the fact remains that we are a very poor team and many quality players short of a half decent Premier league side. I want Saints to be competing against the best week in week out but with the present squad we will be losing heavily which affects confidence therefore making the following game even harder. Then what do we do? Bring a few U23s in and wreck their careers because they're getting badly beaten every game. Saints will only go downwards unless there is decent investment.

I see everyone calling for Ralph to go but let's be honest about it, who else would want to come in knowing that they have to work with what he has. It wouldn't make any difference if we had Pep come in. He would still struggle to keep us in the Premier league. Nothing will change until someone with megabucks buys the club and the chances of that happening are about zero. I think that we need at least 6 quality players brought in to make us competitive so that would be an outlay of £100 million +. That's just not going to happen. Over half of the present squad are championship players at best so to be playing next season in the Premier league is a miracle but I fear for our chances next season.

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.

Obafemi isn't in Ralph's plans because he's lazy and can't or won't play the way that Ralph is asking him to. I for one am more than happy to leave the decisions to Ralph. He seems to be making a bloody good job of it.

Hi buddy. I've supported Saints for 58 years and I've seen some brilliant players and some downright awful players but never have I seen a whole team looking bewildered and disinterested like the present side have over the past few weeks. Yes some of the blame must go on Ralph and his coaches but once the team is out on the pitch the least they can do is give 100% but that's not the case recently. Take JWP. Captain and so called loves the club and should be leading by example but he seems to have gone into a patch where he's not sure what he's supposed to be doing. Most of our senior players seem to have hit bad form at the same time. Next season is make or break for Saints in my opinion. I think that if we are relegated it will be many years before we return to the top flight. We need a massive injection of cash to bring the team up to premier league standard but that's just not going to happen.

Unfortunately I have to agree with most of what you say. At the moment I can't name one of our players that would get a regular spot in any of the top ten teams. Bertrand needs to move on as do Redmond, Djenepo, Wallcott, Stephens and one or maybe even both of the keepers. I can't see Ralph being given much of a transfer pot for summer signings so I think relegation beckons at the end of next season that's assuming of course that we don't get relegated this season which looks more than possible.

Likewise you cannot replace our top striker with a holding/ defensive midfielder. The system was working ok until Danny went off. Why didn't he bring on Nlundulu and keep the same shape.

I hope that we don't go down because I fear that we would never return.

Why give him the rest of the season and the summer transfer window unless we intend giving him another 2 years to rebuild. The fact remains that whoever is in the hotseat will not have a big enough transfer pot to buy enough quality to turn us into a top 6/ 8 side.
