I've reported this raymondscott as an imposter, he's advertising for nothing and how it got past the Editor goodness knows, I remember last season some adverts appeared on our post regarding earning money at home, it first offered dollars then it got past again with sterling flaming nuisance anyway I could not get Youtube to work probably because my payment is due for the Saints site, I thought SFC sends an Email to renew. I wanted to watch Ronald's first conference I hope to watch it soon, according to yours and other post it went well and Ronald was up for it, I've believed all along that the Board were not sunning themselves on the beach but they were working as usual to be ready for the new season and now it's rolling with good news of Pelle over the weekend and more good news to look forward to COYR

No bids in for Morgan, but the press have him sold sealed and delivered.
Also we might see Osvaldo back which if we move Fonte on will not be a problem, will it?
Do you watch different football to me.? I thought TheLovren Fonte partnership was one of the reasons for our successful season and if Lovren does leave I rate Fonte that highly that I think he would do another good job with another competent C B
Every home game and yes Lovren brought Fonte up a step but there are better C.B. to be had. Many a time Fonte was grasping a shirt and or the player because he is not quite the same class as Lovren.
And when Lovren went out of the side what happened ? Fonte and his partner were lacking. So in my opinion we can get better for his position.
But you miss my point.I said with another quality C B

So why not two top class centre backs, we had one good (Lovren) and one mediocre (Fonte) if Lovren stays then to improve we need a comparable partner for him and maybe keep Fonte as backup.
But whichever way you cut it I don't think Fonte is up to the standard we require.
P.S. this is still my opinion and anyone can feel free to have their own opinion and Fonte has been a valuable member of the team/squad since he joined us.

Was interesting as when I heard that it made me realise it was all done and agreed right from the get go and Les Reed made no effort to disuade them from wanting to leave. Was slightly surprised Koeman was ok with that. Seems Les Reed has to answer questions about his honesty in several press conferences. I felt the questions asked by the journalists were very poor and the broadcasted section of the press conference was way too short.

Some people still seem to have issues with Les Reed, I got the impression that last thing he wanted was for these players to leave, but his hand was forced by the situation, don't know what else he could have done these days, false imprisonment is illegal.

Good first press conference from the big man. He handled it well despite difficult questions on MS and DL and he'll only get more accomplished as he settles in. I really hope we get off to a good start as I reckon if he's given time he'll take us beyond where MP got us.

There's no doubt about it he's a big draw and therefore attacting top players as well as getting the team playing for him shouldn't be an issue.

Well enjoyed some of that - what was with the questions re everything else except Southampton. Is that the same bloody female reporter who asked all the dopey questions last year, and who does she work for, any one know?

He made it sound as though there's a chance we can keep hold of Morgan. Maybe there is still unfinished business here for Osvaldo to perform but Rambo was quite scathing about him. Lovren's not on his Xmas card list either it seems - watch this space. Interviews well and won't get flustered by awkward questions.

Expect he will tell them the facts of life resulting in them either being kicked straight out the door or pleading to stay !!

All sounds good to me especially if Morgan stays, I would offer him an improved contract and make him captain.

Questions though for Les Reed to answer about players leaving, doesn't sound as though his previous statements were correct.

We played some good stuff last season but often thought we lacked a bit of pace and clearly didn't turn all that possession into goals....the future is bright, the future is orange (and red and white!)

Don't see what the fixation is, with Les Reed.

As I recall he said we didn't have to sell, didn't want to sell, BUT if we did, it would be on Saints' terms.

As Ronko knew about the sales, appears happy with them and as we got darn good prices, it looks like Reed has done well.

I don't think Reed has told any lies, but if you want total honesty, then you won't find it in football.

Osvaldo and Dejan to face the music on Sunday? Wonder how that will go, would love to be a fly on the wall for that.

Mrs Wilson says the plan is to play "Send in the Clowns" as they walk in to the boss's office.

Big Ron sounds the part,but I'm sure he hasn't got a lot to spend.
Morgan is a good player,but we shouldn't build a team around him,he's not top drawer!.We have a lot of rebuilding and strengthening to do,reality says it will be difficult to do in short time,so we should be aware it will be a struggle to maintain premiership status!

How much is not a lot?

No bids in for Morgan, but the press have him sold sealed and delivered.
Also we might see Osvaldo back which if we move Fonte on will not be a problem, will it?

Do you watch different football to me.? I thought TheLovren Fonte partnership was one of the reasons for our successful season and if Lovren does leave I rate Fonte that highly that I think he would do another good job with another competent C B
Every home game and yes Lovren brought Fonte up a step but there are better C.B. to be had. Many a time Fonte was grasping a shirt and or the player because he is not quite the same class as Lovren.
And when Lovren went out of the side what happened ? Fonte and his partner were lacking. So in my opinion we can get better for his position.
But you miss my point.I said with another quality C B
So why not two top class centre backs, we had one good (Lovren) and one mediocre (Fonte) if Lovren stays then to improve we need a comparable partner for him and maybe keep Fonte as backup.
But whichever way you cut it I don't think Fonte is up to the standard we require.
P.S. this is still my opinion and anyone can feel free to have their own opinion and Fonte has been a valuable member of the team/squad since he joined us.

I think we all agreed that we needed another CB before the end of last season. One who would have stepped into the first team with Fonte the first reserve but obviously with the chance to stake a claim - there was a time when Hoover and Yoshida kept him out, but he pushed back in.
