Ex-Saints ace Hughie fears player exodus

Basingstoke Gazette: Luke Shaw Luke Shaw

FORMER Saints star Hughie Fisher is fearful the club's best players could follow chairman Nicola Cortese out of the St Mary's exit door.

"We’re all in the dark really nobody knows what is fully going on," said the 1970s midfielder.

"But it looks like the man at the helm (Mauricio Pochettino) will go – all media outlets, what everybody’s been saying, points to that.”

“It will be an uncertain time for the players, they will be wondering what is going on."

Fisher added: “There has got to be concerns about other teams striking fast for the players, especially the left back (Luke Shaw). They will be circling and will want to sign the best ones at the club.”

“I just hope it doesn’t trouble the progress of the team on the pitch, they’ve been doing so well it would be a huge shame to take steps backwards.

“The club will continue - it has been through its fair share of problems in the past and things change all the time in football.”

Is there anyone you aren't going to ask, DE? I admire your determination but yet more interviews of people who are in as in the dark as we are don't really add anything.

My cat Brandy says the Don already has a plan in operation, involving chinese backers to buy out the club, and take the Saints to the top of the table next season with him back in charge. She saw it in her water bowl....

According to my sauces (HP Salad & Tomatoes) by the end of the day we should may or may not know the possible scenarios that could possibly be played out or not should the plans of the people in the know of whom there are few but many and the possibility of things either changing or not are not beyond the realms of possibilities.As an unnamed player from the 1930s told me personally through a friend of a friend who knows somebody who can talk to people on the other side .....he knows nothing ! I Think I have managed to reduce all of the echoes stories in to a few paragraphs....do I get a sports reporters job now ?? Please ???? X
