Lyanco is the new CB if reports are to be believed. Looks like a solid unit with decent pace, a good passer and plenty of serie A experience.
Is this true Ed or just more rumour mongering?

{Ed002's Note - Lyanco (CB) Torino have said they have been talking with Celta Vigo and Watford about the player and that Real Betis have made a firm offer and and Southampton have asked for details. Southampton, who see him as an option to Joe Worrell, and Watford may have to confirm a Work Permit will be available.}

Apparently he’s our last senior incoming this window. So an injury to a central midfielder or full back and we are screwed. And at least half a season with McCathy and Forster in goal at least, woooooop.

20 Aug 2021 21:14:38
Apparently flying in for medical with us tomorrow.

22 Aug 2021 18:37:21
David James comments on Twitter the man who was bankrupt after a career in football what a sketch twit he is sell some more stuff fishy🤣.

22 Aug 2021 19:58:36
Bruno Fernandes wants a foul ole backs him Jesus what is wrong with these people never a foul this year or last year. Ole has the two most overrated midfielders in the league in Fernandes and pogba.

18 Aug 2021 15:12:26
Must mean business and get a central defender in. I can't see why we aren't searching for a young goalkeeper either. McCarthy should not be No1.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2021 17:25:21
Saints linked to Ethan Ampadu. definitely fits the brief of a versatile DC or DM and is still only 20 years old.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2021 17:56:59
Yes please.

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

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

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) .

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

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.}

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.}

16 Aug 2021 17:59:27
I'm reading that we are looking at Joe Worrall from Nottingham Forest to replace Vestegaard.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2021 18:52:46
So Ralph will play him on the left wing and Diallo centre back . apologies for my cynical answer . losing the faith after another Ralph debacle.

17 Aug 2021 06:31:34
Ralph doesn't buy the players there's a whole team behind the scenes. We are buying championship players, how can you expect more than championship football. Don't forget players like vestergard and Bertrand were available this window. Talk of zouma being available. Tammy, loftus cheek, the ox. Our board sanctioned our players in not the manager, they failed to keep the stars we had. Ralph isn't the best at making subs but we also have nothing of value to bring on except hope.

18 Aug 2021 15:38:55
Nothing of value to bring on? You mean subs?

For starters.

20 Aug 2021 09:33:04
Two of those players should have started and the other two aren't going to set the world alight.

12 Aug 2021 20:57:06
RHI Southampton are interested in taking Amed Diallo on a season long loan.

Looks good! and has had no opportunity at MU. Also his Brother might put in a good word?

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Aug 2021 22:48:38
Ok. Thanks for this. He is a promising youngster. Who's his brother?

12 Aug 2021 23:04:17
if this happens we just need to find a player called stuart adam and we might make a commentator cry next season.

13 Aug 2021 13:30:22
MU paid 37 million for him, not sure I see us going for him now unless obafemi goes? and even then surely he would want to play regular football and unless adams and Armstrong have a nightmare they will be first choice surely? But again I would love to see him in a saints shirt if this is true.

13 Aug 2021 15:27:39
Amad Diallo is from Ivory Coast is not related to Southampton and French U21 Ibrahim Diallo. Ibrahim’s brother Abdou Diallo is at PSG.

13 Aug 2021 17:00:06
Maybe we should ask PSG about Abdou to replace Vestegaard?

13 Aug 2021 21:51:12
My bad! I knew that he had a professional brother and assumed it was Amed. Would be a good addition. I looked up and he's only on £40k a week so if they do things the usual way and pay half it could be a good option going forwards on a cheap budget?!

12 Aug 2021 12:29:12
Why not put £75 million price tag on Ward Prowse?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2021 12:35:57
Could do but if a club puts in a good bid and he wants to leave there’s no stopping it. Give us £40m and you can have him I say. Hopefully not in this window as well though else you’ve lost the senior spine of your team in two weeks which doesn’t bode well.

12 Aug 2021 13:06:09
Probably not a good idea, he could well get sold at that, its more important to keep him as the central cog of our team.!
What would you go and buy with the £75 million? Didn't do us any good when we sold and wasted £75 million from VVD did it!

12 Aug 2021 15:16:09
I would be happy to go and buy Maehle from Atalanta. For sale and can gaggle them down. Ralf has wanted him for a while and with money made and sale of Vesta would make good sense. Only 24 and looks amazing:

12 Aug 2021 16:18:43
I’ve wanted Maehle for ages as well. Shame all of our Danes who wouldn’t encouraged him to join have left.

13 Aug 2021 12:23:27
SaintGGsy 40 million, you must be joking. If grealish is worth 100 million then JWP has to be 60 million all day long! Vestergaard would defiantly big our club up to any potential danish signings, he is moving on because of his age and the money Leicester can offer him along with European football. No brainer for him really but he would surely suggest to any danish suitor that Southampton is a great place to ply your trade.

13 Aug 2021 19:29:22
I agree with SaintGGsy, Sometimes i think fans no the 'Cost of Everything and the Value of Nothing" JWP is the Heart of the Saints, and that's worth more than just cash.
Think some of the Danish players such as Maehle are excellent, but we missed a trick when he was circa £10 million.
Not sure where we are going to find a Central Defender with heigh, and we need that, maybe Phillips from Liverpool looks a sensible bet?
Still think we've had a cracking closed season and want to say a 'Big Thank You" to all of the Saints staff that have made that happen.
Question: What do you think the Everton v Saints score will be tomorrow?

13 Aug 2021 22:08:43
@pete I wasn’t suggesting we sell JWP far from it. What I was saying that if you have to put a figure on his head well 40 million is just nowhere near enough. 60 million is nearer the mark! In regards to a defensive signing I just wonder if we are considering Maitland-Niles, now I know he is normally a central defender but he can play central mid or right back. Would that be tempting for Ralph, especially as he likes playing player out of posistion.

13 Aug 2021 22:46:55
In answer to your question Pete - I’m calling 1-1. JWP pen and late equaliser. Early start in the morning but looking forward to it as never been to Goodison Park before.
Still time to get a keeper in and persuade the Ox to join us on loan.

14 Aug 2021 09:01:47
The ox on loan would be amazing and I would have to say one of the best transfer windows I can remember. Just don’t see ox coming to us : ( but I’m praying 🙏.

11 Aug 2021 15:24:50
Hi Eds,

With Vestergaard seemingly on his way to Leicester, do you know if we have any plans to replace? I saw a while a go we were linked to Flavius Daniliuc at Nice, any truth in that or is there someone else? Please not Phil Jones :-)

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - I think it is a "probably" still after signing Dynel Simeu and good reports of Mohammed Salisu. There has been interest in Evan N'Dicka.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2021 16:10:47
thank you Ed002.

I wouldn't mind that as he can play LB as well but thought he'd be out our price range.

12 Aug 2021 05:13:02
Vestergaard to LCFC Avery good result all round considering the current circumstances besides. SFC don’t need any player who is not happy and less than 100% committed to our Club. Hoping for a great start at Everton. Suggested team - Forster KWP Perraud (Stephens/ Bednarek) Salisu JWP Romeu Tella S Armstrong Adams A Armstrong Subs—Broja Livramento Stephens/ Bednarek McCarthy Walcott Diallo Redmond/ Djnepo K O M.

12 Aug 2021 14:56:25
So a young defender with potential to develop and to sell on at profit. Plus they have to be 1st team ready now. Rob Holding from Arsenal comes to mind. Any others that suit the profile?

12 Aug 2021 15:18:21
Ed are we still interested in Maehle?

12 Aug 2021 21:41:13
Ralf stated we're after a versatile CB who can play in midfield with experience. I'm certainly not saying I want it to happen (because I don't! ), but the first name that springs to mind in Phil Jones.

Also a little wierd he's been the no.4 shirt at Man Utd. I'd think a move is on the cards somewhere.

Just a thought.

10 Aug 2021 17:38:04
Armstrong has signed.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2021 19:33:01
Armstrong and Broja are two good signings. Let’s hope they both hit the ground running! Still need MC and LB cover and maybe a DC if Jannik goes.

09 Aug 2021 20:14:54
The elephant in the room is Ralph. As I said last season, an immensely likeable man but tactically, the jury is still out. Bizarre substitutions at times, giving youngsters all of 3 or 4 mins to make an impression and that's not to mention playing people out of position.

Success for Ralph, the team and fans will be survival, a decent cup run (let's not mention the Leicester semi-final) and a squad which gain in confidence and this time next year look for a mid table plus position.
But please, let's get a keeper - everyone's saying it.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Aug 2021 16:34:55
I totally agree. Sometimes I feel he is a little out of his depth. Managing a club where he has NO support from his CEO or its owners must be soul destroying, so perhaps that's why he looks a little unsure.

09 Aug 2021 15:58:23
So it looks like given what Ralph has said this may be our squad for the season;

Forster, Perraud, Salisu, Bednarek, KWP, Romeu, JWP, Armstrong, Tella, Adams, Armstrong

Squad of McCarthy, Livramento, Stephens, Diallo, Walcott, Djenepo, Redmond, Simeu, Valery, Smallbone, ElYounoussi, Long.

Obafemi and Vestergaard look like they're going, the first XI is good, the bench is a combination of promising prospects and 'experienced' players who won't be most helpful.

That bench is definitely two players shy of some serious quality and depth, and a few first team injuries and we will struggle. But, I'll try and be hopeful!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2021 16:35:16
I think there may be a couple more yet - loans?

09 Aug 2021 16:58:03
After Armstrong and Broja, I think there will be a couple more signings, maybe loans. MC and LB still need cover. The Ox at MC would be great!

09 Aug 2021 17:02:00
What is the strength of the rumours of us looking at ox coming back?

09 Aug 2021 20:39:16
Don’t see Broja leaving Chelsea on loan unless they can’t get rid of Abraham. Would only leave them with 2 strikers.

10 Aug 2021 09:05:36
Broja confirmed.
