Ingsy and Redmond back on the bench, and Salisu lives! With a near fully fit squad, we finally appear to have depth with the same XI from recent games, supported by

Forster Stephens Long Diallo Salisu Ings Redmond

Tonight might be the first time we have an impact off the bench for several months!

Truer words were never spoken 😂. Sign of a good side, shake off a comeback loss, not play great but still get the win. Fifth! And at home to bottom next week.

But my word, that was never, ever a penalty. If the foul is given for the tussle, it is clearly outside the box. I was all for VAR until lockdown but it is being implemented terribly and has cost Brighton what could be an important point.

We do seem to get lucky with the decision though, I believe we’re in the top few sides for benefitting the most from VAR decisions so maybe we should keep it for our sake!

Credit definitely has to go to Vestergard. I was told by one of the U23 players that he can pass the ball with either feet to anywhere on the pitch, along the ground or over the top.
Well I watched since then and wow, can this man pass very accurately. Clearly Ralph has spotted his potential and encourages his passing anytime he likes. I’ve also noticed that V now seems to take up different positions at set pieces ie standing in more space, running onto the ball. He used to be ‘lost in the noise’ surrounded by other players. This reminds me of good ol Claus L, he scored only 2 goals in over 400 professional games, but was up for virtually every dead ball situation. I used to think, ‘get out the way’ . well Vestergard is now positioning himself superbly and the goals are flying in!

Hi Ed's, do you know if Southampton are following any of the free agents available admittedly they're mostly injury prone players but there's some great talent amongst the list. I know there was paper talk about one or two of them before they were released and wondered if it was just that please.

{Ed002's Note - Not so sure about the freebies. There are half a dozen post deadline possible transfers to the Premier League - but again not so sure.}

Thanks for the reply.

Carillo is officially off our payroll.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

01 Oct 2020 17:34:17
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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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

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.

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.

25 Sep 2020 09:52:17
Latest link is Ibrahim Sangare, Toulouse box-to-box mid, available for £7m, good things heard of him, part of a relegated side last season but so was Doucoure, but surely worth the punt.

I'll take anyone at this point.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2020 19:12:26
Fits the Saints policy. Only 22 years old. Quite physical and a decent tackler/ passer. Could fit nicely into Ralph's way of playing and at £7-£8 M fairly priced. I think 1 or 2 other clubs are interested. Let's hope.

26 Sep 2020 02:50:31
Looks like Sangare is off to PSV Eindhoven. Oh well, onto the next.

20 Sep 2020 10:33:23
The swap deal of Butland-Gunn is apparently back on the cards. Really not what we should be prioritising and can't say I rate Butland very highly having nearly gone down to League 1 with stoke.

Also hearing nothing on a CM in recent days. Only a couple of weeks to go. That poll where Saints fans were most optimistic for the new season isn't looking too smart anymore.

Very frustrating watching Saints today. Feel Jack Stephens spends most of the game ball watching and has little or no awareness. We're suffering from having no real protection of the back 4 by a quality Defensive midfielder - Romeu is back up at best. SOLUTION: Get Salisu in for Stephens and buy a quality defensive midfielder asap.

20 Sep 2020 13:54:39
Don’t understand the reason for extending Stephens both this week and last week has shown how susceptible he is to the long ball, ball watches like there’s no tomorrow. Surely Salisu is a better option even if he’s not fully up to speed with how Saints do things. Agree with Marty that Romeu is not the answer for Hojbjerg replacement.

21 Sep 2020 12:57:59
Let’s go left field.

Salisu comes in as CB with Stephens moving to DMC. He is not too bad on the ball, he can spot a long ball and can tackle. His pace let’s him down but could do a job patrolling/ protecting the back four?

21 Sep 2020 16:03:18
I'm having trouble working out what has changed in the players minds in the last month. They were playing top 6 football at the close of last season and players like Stephens were putting in top rate performances. like that against Man City. The game is the same as are the personel yet the fizz has fizzled out.?

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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

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.

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.

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 🤣.

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.}

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.}

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.}

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.

10 Sep 2020 23:33:20
Reading (albeit in the Mail) that American Joseph DaGrosa is in talks to buy the club for £200m. Can't say I know much of the man but if he's willing to invest in the club then why not.

Also news from Ralph today that he wants another CM, a few 'alternatives' as squad back up - I presume this includes a striker and possibly another full back, and that a keeper will be leaving.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2020 09:52:35
Seen this in the online papers. He's the president of Bordeaux football club and was in talks to buy Newcastle a while ago. Would love to have someone come in who would actually invest in the club. Our way of buying young players to sell on at a profit won't work for ever. We need someone who will back the manager with cash.

09 Sep 2020 09:31:08
I'm reading that the top teams in Belgium what to buy Hoedt but won't be able to meet the asking price.

Do you think there's potential that we could bring someone in from one of these clubs as a potential swap deal?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2020 13:52:01
I think in this current climate swap deals are a perfectly viable option.

From Club Brugge they have two forwards in David Okereke and Emmanuel Dennis, from Anderlecht Yari Verchsaeren (AM) the next Belgium wonder kid and Jeremy Doku (RW), all in the 18 - 23 year range.

Would love Yari Verchsaeren as big things are tipped for him.

09 Sep 2020 16:01:55
I know Ed's mentioned in a previous post that we were looking at Yari Verschaeren as a potential signing, not sure what his value is. But I think there could be an option for us to swap him with Hoedt +5m and then even loan him back to Anderlecht, for the next season.

This is obviously all hypothetical though!

09 Sep 2020 23:27:08
I hear that Club Brugge have a decent tea lady. We could always try to swap Hoedt for her.

10 Sep 2020 18:36:42
I’d give them Hoedt and £5m just to see the back of him.

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