Saints will look to wrap up the signing of England goalkeeper Fraser Forster after completing the signing of Saphir Taider.

The 22-year-old Algerian midfielder became Ronald Koeman’s fourth summer signing on a season long loan deal from Inter Milan that saw Dani Osvaldo move in the opposite direction.

Saints have not yet completed their business, however, and Forster is top of the list of candidates to provide the new keeper that Koeman targeted quickly after arriving at the club.

Forster’s Champions League dream for the new season was last night shattered as Celtic lost 2-0 at home to Legia Warsaw to crash out 6-1 on aggregate at the qualifying round stage With the Scottish giants having lost out on around £20m from failing to qualifying for the lucrative main group stages, concluded, Forster’s £8m move to St Mary’s is clear to take place if a final agreement can be reached.

It all adds to a growing sense of positivity around Saints as the squad begins to swell after a summer of high profile departures.

Confirmation of the deal that saw Osvaldo out and Taider in came yesterday evening.

Both are season long loans with options for the moves to be made permanent for fees of about €7m (£5.5m).

Both of these are individual deals and do not depend on both sides wanting to make the switches permanent.

Yes let's get this done ASAP as he is a very good keeper. Not sure how he's going to fit in will he become number 1 or what!
Once this is sorted now go for a top CB please!

Would be good to get him & he is English.

However TWO first choice CB's & the best STRIKER we can get are the URGENT priorities.

We must score at least 20 more goals this season and we look very weak up front as well as in central defense.
We have missed out on all 3 of Feyrenoord's World Cup CB's so need to get the best we can; van Dijk is young & could improve under RonKo; Vlaar has the experience; RonKo must have targeted at least two.

Other players are rumored but I would go for are Jordy Classie from Feyrenoord before anyone else does, and 16 yr old Borg (rated the next Bale) for £250k compensation as he has not signed for West Ham, before Man U sign him.

Come on Les & Ralph get after them all quicky, still 4 or 5 to sign yet.

COYR&WS we are starting to rebuild so lets get behind RonKo on Saturday & show him our support.

Looking good, trying to stay positive. Need to close this deal, also get the centre half while we are in Parkhead. From our pre-season games, we struggled to score. I would like to see Zaha, top class striker and defender as a minimum. We need more pace in our team.

YAHOO SPORT - OUR VIEW

It is no surprise that Osvaldo has walked as he is a troublemaker of epic proportions; the signing of Taider is a good one though as he is an excellent player, versatile and skilful with strength to match.

Saints were seen as dead ducks due to the exits, but they are signing well and could well be in the hunt for a European place again. Certainly not relegation fodder...

According to the Express, our £9.5m offer for Rojo has been rejected by Sporting Lisbon. Seems it's not so much the amount but the way payment would be made that's the sticking point. He would be a good buy as can play CB or LB. Presume Les Reed is in Portugal as the Express said Saints representatives were at Sporting Lisbon, so must be serious about this player. Let's get the deal done Les! Other clubs are circling, including MU it appears.

Not going to say no to a quality keeper, but if we are limiting what we spend, I'd want Rojo and Van Dijk as priorities, perhaps another more experienced CB too, and then one more goal threat.
Said before that I think the squad as it is should be good enough for tenth, but additions can mean 8th again, and a cup.

And so it goes on: whatever signings are made the armchair experts aren't satisfied and want something else. We sign a midfielder, they want a goalkeeper. It looks like we might sign a goalkeeper, they want a forward. I assume that when that forward is signed they'll start moaning that they're worried we don't have enough cover in the groundsman position. "We can't just go with one big bloke and a ride-on mower, we need a plan B, a nippy little chap with a petrol strimmer".

I'd love to go shopping with some of these people. It seems they're not happy until they've spent every penny, maxed out the credit card and mugged someone for small change.

Or is that just what they do when it's someone else's money they're talking about?

Didn't we used to have someone else like that at the club?

I think current players agents are concerned with the major star player sales at saints and are advising their clients to stay clear of Southampton. They're in need of some serious convincing or some get out clauses in any new contract. It is now up to Les, Ralph and. Ron to convince them to sign for our great club. It would be foolish to think that the the above do not know what positions that we are in serious need of filling, but if we can pull off the signing of England's no.2 keeper, it might go to giving future cb's more confidence to a, sign for us, and b, have a little less pressure with a quality keeper behind them.
I think a few more signings will happen, but maybe on loan, you have to look at it from the players point of view here. A loan move would give them peace of mind if we got relegated, they could return to their parent club and can move on to someone else.
This is a club in transition with new players and now we need so solidarity and togetherness. Players who play for each other and who enjoy their football is what we want to see on the pitch.
So let's get the players we need, retain our status as a great premier league team and get behind the manager.
We are Southampton, we are the only team in Hampshire!

Really? With 6 players out we clearly need to replace them, plus get some extra players as we needed last season. It's not simply a case of moaners moaning - they are justified in asking for those who left to be replaced at the minimum

It's a good interview which you should find on a Google search with the headline above and quoting DT. I cannot see how to give a link, but do try.

The last sentence in the interview is "My message to fans would be that they went through a hard time but there are good times ahead".

The previous Krueger thread is pretty finished, so I am recommending here an interview in Wednesday's Daily Telegraph which is headed "Krueger insists Southampton sales are over"

It's a good interview which you should find on a Google search with the headline above and quoting DT. I cannot see how to give a link, but do try.

The last sentence in the interview is "My message to fans would be that they went through a hard time but there are good times ahead".

He reasons well the policy this year and, personally, I found it an encouraging interview. Please do try and find it.
Every time I have heard him speak or read the reports he comes across really well, I think all the vibes coming out of the club bode well for the future.

It may take a while for the new players to bed in, we may well get turned over by Brendan I wish I had taken the saints job Rodgers mob in the opening game but I sincerely believe we have a stronger future under this regime.

Interesting point he made about the player exodus and how things may well of been different if Poxi had taken the FA Cup game and possible route into Europe seriously, I remember watching the game and I could not make any sense of the decisions that were make and the way we played.

Indeed. Also worth a read Google "New York Times Saints FC" article is a couple of days old now but still worth a read especially last two paragraphs. Interestingly our summer woes have at least increased our global recognition.

Very impressed with young Lloyd Isgrove's performance at the recent Brighton friendly. He is very fast and despite being small even won a couple of headers in the box. He has a way to go before being the finished article, but could be great impact sub this season.

So lets get this straight.... we will actually sign this bloke, not take him on loan with various options attached or in exchange for the groundsman and some of the backroom staff.

I still don't understand the Tiader / Osvaldo deal.... is it correct that if we like Taider we can buy him at the end of the season? It doesn't depend on whether Osvaldo is purchased ? So if Osvaldo flunks it we can still buy Taider ... is that how everyone sees it?

I like to be clear on these things.

We have left things way too LATE as far as bringing in players is concerned. We didn't hang around when it came to selling players, but for some reason the buying part has taken longer!!!

TEAMS NEED TIME TO GEL!!!

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!

Ah well, we are where we are so lets get on with it.

J-Rod won't be back fully fit until Christmas, even if he does recover fully, bonus if he is, but that is half the season gone so a TOP STRIKER is urgently needed to help score the extra 20 goals needed this season.

Not small enough, block very specifically wants a small guy.
Very impressed with young Lloyd Isgrove's performance at the recent Brighton friendly. He is very fast and despite being small even won a couple of headers in the box. He has a way to go before being the finished article, but could be great impact sub this season.
I was amazed at how good he is in the air for such a little chap And he has pace to spare

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!
Andy, I do hope you are wrong.

Two things, first we should now just and wait and see how the first few games pan out and secondly, on more than one occasion the incoming funds have been promised for the new signings bank. Promised, more than once and so we shall see.

I like to be clear on these things.
Yes you are correct as I understand it they are individual deals.

If Tiader proves to be good then we pay a fixed £7m fee, if he is not he goes back.

Same with Osvaldo for a fixed £5.5m fee, but not dependent on each other.

Seems a good deal for Tiader but fear Osvaldo may not be worth that much as he will be 30 by then.

Sporting Lisbon have rejected an offer from Southampton for Argentina international Marcos Rojo.

Despite landing Ryan Bertrand on loan from Chelsea, Saints want a top-class left-back to compensate for the loss of Luke Shaw and they are desperate to bring Rojo, 24, to St Mary's.

However, they will have to up their offer, as sources in Portugal claim Sporting rejected their opening bid of £9.5m.

In addition to that, Sporting were not happy with the payment structure proposed by Southampton.

Rojo, who can also play at centre-back, featured six times for Argentina at the World Cup and was heavily linked with Liverpool, who considered him as an alternative to Sevilla and Spain youngster Alberto Moreno.

As usual, you have jumped to the conclusion that we have an unlimited supply of money to spend on transfers, sadly it isn't that straightforward, it doesn't just end with a transfer fee these days, FFP, wages and add-ons have more influence than the actual big money transfer fee quoted. It is important that we get value for money and the right type of player, we have had our fingers burnt too often, if it takes a little time to get the right result, that is getting my support. Time is running out, and, as has been said, it takes time for players to gel as a team, so even if we do get some important late inclusions, don't expect instant success. We have taken a hell of beating this summer, many would have thrown in the towel by now in any other situation, I see us as being made of sterner stuff. Now is the time to be positive and prove to the detractors that they got it horribly wrong.

Stop talking absolute sense, far too late...... every fan knows that players only have to shake hands to form a partnership and an understanding.

Back to the Forster deal, one of of strongest positions atm is goalkeeper, Artur Boruc, who is far to good to sit on the bench at SMS, will he play second fiddle? Especially if Bayern Munich are offering him the chance to sit on their bench.....

Unless the club has something up their sleeve concerning the central defence, I can predict that whoever plays in goal is going to be very busy.

When signing FF - and we will - do you think we could throw Sammy2jocks in as part of the deal? We'd be well rid of him and he'd fit in well up in Glasgow alongside our one-time Jock muppet, Ache I the No No.

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!
Stop talking absolute sense, far too late...... every fan knows that players only have to shake hands to form a partnership and an understanding.

Back to the Forster deal, one of of strongest positions atm is goalkeeper, Artur Boruc, who is far to good to sit on the bench at SMS, will he play second fiddle? Especially if Bayern Munich are offering him the chance to sit on their bench.....

Unless the club has something up their sleeve concerning the central defence, I can predict that whoever plays in goal is going to be very busy.
gaz please please please do a little bit of research before you post.

Bayern Munich have Manuel Neuer as first choice keeper and have agreed a deal to sign Pepe Reina from liverhampton, as back up keeper. so they aren't offering Artur the chance to go there, especially as third choice keeper.
as for CB, we are reportedly after vlaar, Rojo, Van Dijk, and others, would any of those be ok with you?

time to gel? well I`d rather get the right players in and give them a couple of games in the league to gel than just go out and buy anyone that's available, the harry redkrapp school of management, in the hope that they can play together!

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.

That should be a capital L for Les, and 'em. Les is still in Portugal negotiating for Rojo, and upped the offer today, we will see if he has the NC "always gets my man" acumen. Hopefully he won't fall in the trap of paying too much though.

I'd be happy with just a couple more signings. Forster and Vlaar would make us extremely competitive with the 4 we've already signed.

Let's not forget we've got Gallagher, Mayuka and Sharp as back up strikers plus J Rod will be back in a couple of months. Koeman also said that Taider can play there too, so we're not light up top. PLUS Pelle is the mutts nutts!!

I think that's a fair comment. WTF happened with that deal? Was he just not a Mo Po style signing? I can't believe you can buy someone who isn't capable of playing a single minute - even to try out. It wasn't as if we couldn't risk giving him a run out in the final few games. Was all very strange.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!
Stop talking absolute sense, far too late...... every fan knows that players only have to shake hands to form a partnership and an understanding.

Back to the Forster deal, one of of strongest positions atm is goalkeeper, Artur Boruc, who is far to good to sit on the bench at SMS, will he play second fiddle? Especially if Bayern Munich are offering him the chance to sit on their bench.....

Unless the club has something up their sleeve concerning the central defence, I can predict that whoever plays in goal is going to be very busy.
gaz please please please do a little bit of research before you post.

Bayern Munich have Manuel Neuer as first choice keeper and have agreed a deal to sign Pepe Reina from liverhampton, as back up keeper. so they aren't offering Artur the chance to go there, especially as third choice keeper.
as for CB, we are reportedly after vlaar, Rojo, Van Dijk, and others, would any of those be ok with you?

time to gel? well I`d rather get the right players in and give them a couple of games in the league to gel than just go out and buy anyone that's available, the harry redkrapp school of management, in the hope that they can play together!
Yes heiligen you are correct, did not know that BM had signed Reina.
My mistake. :(
Lol. When heili/cabbie goes on one of his or her pointed rants it like a nagging wife brow beating some unlucky husband. Amusing to witness from a distance, but quite tiring if you are on the receiving end.

That should be a capital L for Les, and 'em. Les is still in Portugal negotiating for Rojo, and upped the offer today, we will see if he has the NC "always gets my man" acumen. Hopefully he won't fall in the trap of paying too much though.
I don't think NC did always get his man though opsers. Nige said a few time in preseason that we would be surprised by some of the names that we were trying to get, and we didn't see anyone else come in. the big difference now is we are hearing about a lot of the players we are linked with.

I think that's a fair comment. WTF happened with that deal? Was he just not a Mo Po style signing? I can't believe you can buy someone who isn't capable of playing a single minute - even to try out. It wasn't as if we couldn't risk giving him a run out in the final few games. Was all very strange.
I was at the game when he scored a goal for us, but even then he didn't look the real deal. It was one of the stranger episodes in our history, and we have a few of them to ponder over.

Osprey stick to what you do best,grammar and punctuation corrections.
OK. You should have put a space between best, and grammar.
One doesn't need a comma after best when using the word and next.
Perhaps they do it differently in Oz?

It took les 5 minutes to sell em all.
That should be a capital L for Les, and 'em. Les is still in Portugal negotiating for Rojo, and upped the offer today, we will see if he has the NC "always gets my man" acumen. Hopefully he won't fall in the trap of paying too much though.
I don't think NC did always get his man though opsers. Nige said a few time in preseason that we would be surprised by some of the names that we were trying to get, and we didn't see anyone else come in. the big difference now is we are hearing about a lot of the players we are linked with. NC and had the shutters up and we only got the occasional rumour, some were true and im sure others were deliberate red herrings.
at least we have a few names to talk about now.
He started off well but as in all things the magic wore off, when that happened it was time to get rid. No room for sentiment when it comes to SFC. Our neggies won't tolerate failure at any level!

Anyway - Yea Forster in looks a good deal, if he doesn't mind being Boruc's understudy....at least until Boruc does something nuts and crocks himself for a month or two.

Van Dijk would be a good addition as well but I reckon we need to unchain the wallet and get a top class CB as well, and I mean a really really good player, international class.

We will then look pretty good going in to Game One - AND still have a few quid in the bank for the January window......

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.

However neither trait is illegal. You have to know your limitations. I think typecasting is a bit disingenuous, as there are so many variations, and minds can be changed by the slightest thing. Neggie one day, big signing, happy clapper, the next big defeat, back to being a neggie again. Nothing stranger than folk. Each to their own, as long as it is on a level playing field and not abusive, no problem as far as I am concerned.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.[/p][/quote]Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section. Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet. Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get. So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do. Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on. There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game). Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on. I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.[/p][/quote]Spot on.[/p][/quote]JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him. I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up. Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone. I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.[/p][/quote]However neither trait is illegal. You have to know your limitations. I think typecasting is a bit disingenuous, as there are so many variations, and minds can be changed by the slightest thing. Neggie one day, big signing, happy clapper, the next big defeat, back to being a neggie again. Nothing stranger than folk. Each to their own, as long as it is on a level playing field and not abusive, no problem as far as I am concerned. OSPREYSAINT

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!
Andy, I do hope you are wrong.

Two things, first we should now just and wait and see how the first few games pan out and secondly, on more than one occasion the incoming funds have been promised for the new signings bank. Promised, more than once and so we shall see.
I do too Bobby! And the wait and see approach is of course logical. I just wish we could have got players in quicker to give them time to bed in.

IMO we have a gem of a manager, but in terms of squad he hasn't got much at his disposal. CB partnerships especially need time to gel, that instinct of one knowing where the others going to be etc. the same up front and in the middle of the park.

When we had Poch and NC there was no more optimistic a fan than myself. And having Ron as our manager has filled me agin with a great deal of optimism. But I won't sweep the obvious under the carpet to placate the Kumbaya brigade, the fact is we have left things TOO LATE. The majority of pundits have said the same thing, and deep down we know they are correct. The only fans who don't see it are those who thought that we'd keep hold of all our players this summer.

We could get off to a roaring start, but it won't take away from the fact that this summer's goings on have been highly detrimental to clubs prep for the new season.

This is the first time I have posted. I live in Fort Worth, Texas, USA. I was brought up in Shirley and had my first season ticket in 1960. I have always followed the Saints and always will.

I won't comment on the current Saints status at the moment but believe it is going in the right direction.

There is so much hatred on this site. So unBritish!!! I can't believe the expletives that are bandied around. It is not all Saints fans but we need to set an example.

I feel sorry for Pompey fans. I certainly don't hate them. You should follow the Southampton way and, at least, respect them. We were there once. The majority of them are good (speak decent English) and support their team (which they should). We do not need them to go away.

I have updated the Wikipedia site to show that Dave Watson who started at the beginning of the month is England's goalkeeping coach. What a wonderful place for Fraser Forster to come to!!! What a wonderful team Southampton is going to be!!! We are finally taking on the giants.

More to follow.

I think the Taggert scenario is many big clubs have been following him! Many have reported he is better than Shaw at the same age. Shaw bulked up quickly and dealt with the rigours of a The Premier League. Taggert still looks like a youth player to me. If Taggert gets his chance and shines he will be another one the pack will be after.
So from my ivory office in Leeds I smell a deal being done in Lisbon...Rioja a round? Sorry I meant Rojo is round!

Too right gaz.never be content with second best.keep questioning and demanding better.if you look at some of the "big" clubs supporters they demand the best and they get the best.clubs need to be driven and pushed forward by their fanbase and if that means being critical of them then so be it.

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.

Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

Wrong! Not sure why we have to have this ridiculous to and fro aies and hc's. I an probably one of the latter although a realist and said before it happened that we would likely lose MoPo and three players. More went than I expected but the only one that had me questioning the board was Chambers. For the record I run my own successful business.
Wrong because you've got your own paper round? C'mon.

You would have thought that with the club being flush with money it would have been a case of players coming in on a daily basis, but NOT so. The big talk from Ralph about ambition hasn't been witnessed in the transfer market.

I can't see us spending anywhere near the same amount that we sold, let alone the club spending the £70 mill we spent over the previous two summers, without selling any players. This tells it's own story!!!
Andy, I do hope you are wrong.

Two things, first we should now just and wait and see how the first few games pan out and secondly, on more than one occasion the incoming funds have been promised for the new signings bank. Promised, more than once and so we shall see.
I do too Bobby! And the wait and see approach is of course logical. I just wish we could have got players in quicker to give them time to bed in.

IMO we have a gem of a manager, but in terms of squad he hasn't got much at his disposal. CB partnerships especially need time to gel, that instinct of one knowing where the others going to be etc. the same up front and in the middle of the park.

When we had Poch and NC there was no more optimistic a fan than myself. And having Ron as our manager has filled me agin with a great deal of optimism. But I won't sweep the obvious under the carpet to placate the Kumbaya brigade, the fact is we have left things TOO LATE. The majority of pundits have said the same thing, and deep down we know they are correct. The only fans who don't see it are those who thought that we'd keep hold of all our players this summer.

We could get off to a roaring start, but it won't take away from the fact that this summer's goings on have been highly detrimental to clubs prep for the new season.
Once again you make light of the word "fact": "the fact is we have left things TOO LATE" and "the fact that this summer's goings on have been highly detrimental to clubs prep for the new season".

Not only are these things not facts, their truth is also unknowable in the absence of parallel worlds in which all alternative scenarios can be played out and compared. It's not rocket science!

JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
I have absolutely no idea if targett is as good, worse or even better than luke, you will be pleased t know! however when luke broke into the team many people were surprised that he was picked ahead of targett. I think the problem is that he has been unlucky with some injuries in the past which has held him back. we might see if he is any good this season though but we also now have Bertrand so we might not see that much of him. as with everything else only time will tell.
if the players didn't have their bad attitudes then yes I would want them back and put dejerk as my first choice.
I`m what you call a `happy clapper` but I am not content to put up with anything. I want the best for the club, as you do. I though understand the reasons behind selling the players, as much as I don't like it, and realise that it may have been in the best interests to lt them go, again we will see how good they are this season when they are playing in the teams they dreamt of playing at most of last season.
I wouldn't want pochaliar back though, how could you trust a word he says? didn't want Europa league as it was bad for clubs yet I now delighted to e involved, hands over control of important matches to his junior, and isn't upset we lost! I think Ronnie has the potential to deliver a better end result for saints, but then again we will have to wait to see. I also think pochaliar will struggle at spuds, but that's more to do with the attitude of the players there and chopper levy.
whilst you may be correct about neggies being self employed I would just add that im glad that they aren't in charge of saints as they want to get rid of a very wealthy owner who has invested large sums of money into the club while spending fortunes on new players and giving the players that left £100k a week each! and totally ignore the ffp rules. its easy to spend someone else`s money when you haven't got to worry about it but if they ran their own firms how they want to run the club they would soon go out of business!
oh maybe just maybe the `big` clubs havent brought tried to buy targett is because he hasn't played any games for us yet so isn't on their radar!

There is so much hatred on this site. So unBritish!!! I can't believe the expletives that are bandied around. It is not all Saints fans but we need to set an example.

I feel sorry for Pompey fans. I certainly don't hate them. You should follow the Southampton way and, at least, respect them. We were there once. The majority of them are good (speak decent English) and support their team (which they should). We do not need them to go away.

I have updated the Wikipedia site to show that Dave Watson who started at the beginning of the month is England's goalkeeping coach. What a wonderful place for Fraser Forster to come to!!! What a wonderful team Southampton is going to be!!! We are finally taking on the giants.

More to follow.

Too right gaz.never be content with second best.keep questioning and demanding better.if you look at some of the "big" clubs supporters they demand the best and they get the best.clubs need to be driven and pushed forward by their fanbase and if that means being critical of them then so be it.
Like Pompey's Fan base drove them on , did them a lot of good !

I remember an old Pompey fan interviewed on the Radio about these 'Fans' who demanded the world for their Football Club ....... He said it can't happen long term as we don't have the money or the crowds ........... A year later he was proved oh so right !

Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.

I won't comment on the current Saints status at the moment but believe it is going in the right direction.

There is so much hatred on this site. So unBritish!!! I can't believe the expletives that are bandied around. It is not all Saints fans but we need to set an example.

I feel sorry for Pompey fans. I certainly don't hate them. You should follow the Southampton way and, at least, respect them. We were there once. The majority of them are good (speak decent English) and support their team (which they should). We do not need them to go away.

I have updated the Wikipedia site to show that Dave Watson who started at the beginning of the month is England's goalkeeping coach. What a wonderful place for Fraser Forster to come to!!! What a wonderful team Southampton is going to be!!! We are finally taking on the giants.

More to follow.
Welcome Fortworth.now you have to choose sides.are you a neggie or hc?
I shouldn't worry about it Fort Worth,most of the "hatred" is spur of the moment stuff,forgotten the next day and very few people bear grudges.
As long as you believe what you post,(as you obviously do) then you will soon gain respect,even if people don't necessarily agree with it.
The only vitriol is normally directed at those who come on with the intention of being devisive or upsetting,although for some strange reason they very often seem to deliberately invite it!
As Costa Gas just pointed out..its all good stuff!

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.

Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.
Well that is without doubt the most self obsessed and patronising post I have seen on here ..........

You obviously have a very high opinion of yourself ?

Les Reed looks like being given the freedom of the city of Brighton and Bournemouth due to his generosity in singlehandedly and almost overnight ensuring that no south coast team is far superior to the other teams. A Spokesman for the Cherries said "We cannot believe that with a young team that looked liked breaking into the top six and possibly remaining a fixture, Les has just sold almost all of their best players to their PL competitors, thereby ensuring a bottom half or relegation place, and ensuring that their new competition will soon be us and Brighton. The man is very generous.

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.
Well that is without doubt the most self obsessed and patronising post I have seen on here ..........

You obviously have a very high opinion of yourself ?

We're all fans, well most of us anyway but it's how we express that and how important the long term viability of the club is when the BSKYB money starts to be spread around Europe ....................


.. There are 'Neggies' and also 'Happys' but most of us have a valued opinion which is why this is one of the most supported ??!!?? threads of any local paper ................

The only thing that upsets me is some of the personal and puerile insults at the very people and their family that saved this club ............. ODD !!

Oh by the way as a 'Happy' if you want a job in my Business let me know because as neggies QUOTE ' your all self made go-getters' so you must be exactly what I want ............ hmmmmmmmmmm ! ;-)
I personally have NEVER said anything insulting about the people who saved our club. KL could sell up tomorrow and I for one would be eternally grateful for what her father did for our club. I would like to echo your sentiments regarding the insults aimed at the family who saved our club. Some of the insults aimed at her have been nothing short of disgusting and have NO PLACE on our little forum.

Oh, and I do apologise Buddy if you found my original post patronising, I was just voicing my agreement with Costa's excellent theory. I think you'll agree that Costa missed his calling and should have become a practicing Psychologist. I think it's a theory which is a bit controversial, maybe even not welcome, especially for those that shoe fits, so to speak!
Interesting theory I must admit , just struggling to squeeze that shoe on !!??!! :-)

Hey can't we all line up outside the ground , first home game to admit our ' Log in's ' .......... So we can all 'Meet the Poster' ...... Now that would be worth a few drinks ?

Koeman cover for Poxi ?

Pelle cover Lambert ?

Tadic cover for Lieanna. .

I think all three will out perform the outgoing players/manager and before you say it, they are not proven in the EPL nor were our lot before they got the chance, I believe Lieanna may of but Lambert and Shaw hadn't played premiership footy and Koeman will outperform, outthink and show more interest in the whole of the clubs players not just 15 first teamers.

I would classify myself as a happy clapper and your classification couldn't be wider of the mark for me.

Pelle cover Lambert ? Tadic cover for Lieanna. . I think all three will out perform the outgoing players/manager and before you say it, they are not proven in the EPL nor were our lot before they got the chance, I believe Lieanna may of but Lambert and Shaw hadn't played premiership footy and Koeman will outperform, outthink and show more interest in the whole of the clubs players not just 15 first teamers. I would classify myself as a happy clapper and your classification couldn't be wider of the mark for me. fascia123

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.
Well that is without doubt the most self obsessed and patronising post I have seen on here ..........

You obviously have a very high opinion of yourself ?

We're all fans, well most of us anyway but it's how we express that and how important the long term viability of the club is when the BSKYB money starts to be spread around Europe ....................



.. There are 'Neggies' and also 'Happys' but most of us have a valued opinion which is why this is one of the most supported ??!!?? threads of any local paper ................

The only thing that upsets me is some of the personal and puerile insults at the very people and their family that saved this club ............. ODD !!

Oh by the way as a 'Happy' if you want a job in my Business let me know because as neggies QUOTE ' your all self made go-getters' so you must be exactly what I want ............ hmmmmmmmmmm ! ;-)
I personally have NEVER said anything insulting about the people who saved our club. KL could sell up tomorrow and I for one would be eternally grateful for what her father did for our club. I would like to echo your sentiments regarding the insults aimed at the family who saved our club. Some of the insults aimed at her have been nothing short of disgusting and have NO PLACE on our little forum.

Oh, and I do apologise Buddy if you found my original post patronising, I was just voicing my agreement with Costa's excellent theory. I think you'll agree that Costa missed his calling and should have become a practicing Psychologist. I think it's a theory which is a bit controversial, maybe even not welcome, especially for those that shoe fits, so to speak!
Interesting theory I must admit , just struggling to squeeze that shoe on !!??!! :-)

Oh, and I do apologise Buddy if you found my original post patronising, I was just voicing my agreement with Costa's excellent theory. I think you'll agree that Costa missed his calling and should have become a practicing Psychologist. I think it's a theory which is a bit controversial, maybe even not welcome, especially for those that shoe fits, so to speak!
Interesting theory I must admit , just struggling to squeeze that shoe on !!??!! :-)

Hey can't we all line up outside the ground , first home game to admit our ' Log in's ' .......... So we can all 'Meet the Poster' ...... Now that would be worth a few drinks ?

It's impressive in a sort of a weird way - building a team for nothing, and they play for £5 a week each and a bag of nuts.

You can't argue with that.

Why would you take back a manager who corrupted the dressing room before he left. A player that wished he was playing for liverhampton when he was captain of another team and a defender that has absolutely no class as a human being. I’ll give you that they were good players, but worth the money we sold them for…No. I’m pleased with what they did for us, but if you’d take them back now your such a wet and poor excuse of a man.

Especially when, by all accounts, if a normal keeper had been playing over the two legs Celtic would've conceded 10.
We shouldn't be looking for a gk,our cb situation is poor even by championship standards.With money tight its not going to be easy obtaining a cb signing,but insure a compromise loan deal will appear eventually,it will be interesting to see in the meantime how many goals we can avoid with a China defence!
Now you've upset Yoshida.

My memory is slightly different on that one mate. As I recall it all happened a bit too quickly for that sort of organised stuff to happen. People got seriously angry, but they put that energy into supporting the team vs Everton. The closest we got to a bloody uprising was a couple of white handkerchiefs and a marker-pen message on the back of a Weetabix box.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.
Well that is without doubt the most self obsessed and patronising post I have seen on here ..........

You obviously have a very high opinion of yourself ?

We're all fans, well most of us anyway but it's how we express that and how important the long term viability of the club is when the BSKYB money starts to be spread around Europe ....................





.. There are 'Neggies' and also 'Happys' but most of us have a valued opinion which is why this is one of the most supported ??!!?? threads of any local paper ................

The only thing that upsets me is some of the personal and puerile insults at the very people and their family that saved this club ............. ODD !!

Oh by the way as a 'Happy' if you want a job in my Business let me know because as neggies QUOTE ' your all self made go-getters' so you must be exactly what I want ............ hmmmmmmmmmm ! ;-)
I personally have NEVER said anything insulting about the people who saved our club. KL could sell up tomorrow and I for one would be eternally grateful for what her father did for our club. I would like to echo your sentiments regarding the insults aimed at the family who saved our club. Some of the insults aimed at her have been nothing short of disgusting and have NO PLACE on our little forum.

Oh, and I do apologise Buddy if you found my original post patronising, I was just voicing my agreement with Costa's excellent theory. I think you'll agree that Costa missed his calling and should have become a practicing Psychologist. I think it's a theory which is a bit controversial, maybe even not welcome, especially for those that shoe fits, so to speak!
Interesting theory I must admit , just struggling to squeeze that shoe on !!??!! :-)

Hey can't we all line up outside the ground , first home game to admit our ' Log in's ' .......... So we can all 'Meet the Poster' ...... Now that would be worth a few drinks ?
That would be unfair on sammy, it's a long walk from Little Lon.
Why would you take back a manager who corrupted the dressing room before he left. A player that wished he was playing for liverhampton when he was captain of another team and a defender that has absolutely no class as a human being. I’ll give you that they were good players, but worth the money we sold them for…No. I’m pleased with what they did for us, but if you’d take them back now your such a wet and poor excuse of a man. Probably cry more often than you should and get all sensitive with feelings and sh!t too. Grow a pair and look in front not behind.

I can not understand the signing of Forster i realise that he is an England international (does that mean anything after the world cup though) but in my humble opinion i would still keep Boruc in goal i would of thought and hoped that two new central defenders and a left back (i know we got Bertrand who i have seen play ) would of been more of a priority just wish these deals could of concluded earlier to let the defense gel and have a bit of playing time together just wish we could be more prepared and organised to take the scouse apart in there own back-yard just a bit of payback for the 2 turncoats

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.

Southampton agree to meet £14m Marcos Rojo valuation

Published 15 minutes ago

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their alleged pursuit of Marcos Rojo after Southampton agreed to pay £14 million to sign the Sporting Lisbon defender this summer.

Rojo was deployed as a left-back by Alejandro Sabella at the finals, but also operates in a central defensive role for the Primeira Liga giants, and that's the position where he'll be expected to play at St Mary's.

Yep.
Especially when, by all accounts, if a normal keeper had been playing over the two legs Celtic would've conceded 10.
We shouldn't be looking for a gk,our cb situation is poor even by championship standards.With money tight its not going to be easy obtaining a cb signing,but insure a compromise loan deal will appear eventually,it will be interesting to see in the meantime how many goals we can avoid with a China defence!
Now you've upset Yoshida.
Maybe that's been the entire problem - the cb situation.

Apparently Les swears by using this rather old communication technology to agree all his signings, meaning that someone needs to be within two miles of his garden shed to get a good signal.
Bit like the old CB days on here sometimes. :0)

If my memory serves me right, Big Mac went to Halifax one cold, wet, Wednesday evening and watched Terry Genoe let in 5 ...... and promptly signed him. He did okay for us and then became a Blackburn legend.

I don't go back as far as the 60s, but some will remember Dave Maclaren letting in 9 for Wolves at The Dell. Within a year, he became a Saint, although, tbh, maybe not up there with, say, Shilton or Niemi.

Southampton agree to meet £14m Marcos Rojo valuation

Published 15 minutes ago

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their alleged pursuit of Marcos Rojo after Southampton agreed to pay £14 million to sign the Sporting Lisbon defender this summer.

Rojo was deployed as a left-back by Alejandro Sabella at the finals, but also operates in a central defensive role for the Primeira Liga giants, and that's the position where he'll be expected to play at St Mary's.

Bringing a player of Rojo's talent would be a massive coup for the club and would demonstrate GENUINE ambition. But alas it will NOT happen. There are too many big clubs sniffing around him and with all of this summer's happenings he is LIKELY to hold out for one of the big clubs.

I've read many posts on here stating "Why is it looking like we will soon sign an additional GK when we need a CB or striker more".

I've also read many posts stating "Why is it taking so long to sign the players we need".

Do people really suppose you draw up a list of positions you want to fill or strengthen in some kind of priority order and then go after them one after the other? If we employed those tactics we would take two years to sign them all.... Surely you spread the signing tentacles out for all the players you need/want and some come to fruition before others? Seems logical to me.

The delay is probably down to the fact that his club only own 25% of him, the rest is owned by Doyen Sports Agency. Crossing eyes and dotting t's takes time, as in the Dusan Tadic saga, same Agency involved.

Mmmm. I remember Maclaren. He didn't let nine in again but he never became very good either. Still, Saints survived him, and a couple of years later we were promoted to the 1st Division for the very first time. Happy days! Just like now!?
We used to call McClaren "Cinderella" ,cos he was always late for the ball!
Who did we call Dracula coz he couldn't handle crosses?
That was Terry Gennoe

Shaw - Fat, gets caught out far to often and Bertrand is a more complete player. Plus Targett looks better anyway.

Lallana - be honest, when you saw him play at St. Mary's did you ever think "he's going to win us the match"?? No, he's not a match winner and doesn't score enough goals. That's why Tadic will be so more influential (but time will tell)! The only really really good thing he could do was keep the ball, run to the byline and put in the odd decent cross.

Lambert - Great for us in his prime but he's past it now. Can't even score a pen!! Pelle is bigger, faster and a poacher in front of goal - just what we need!

Lovren - Good player but he's a knob.
Absolute tripe and deep down you know it.
I would take them all back in a heartbeat,poch included.
You're a mug then.

If you actually watched them week in week out, you would know they're not worth that kind of money we sold them for.
Dear neggies. Please do not take the bait from the deluded section of the supposedly positive section.

Yes, most of the positive posters are actually sane and reasonable people with positive outlooks, but there are also the odd few who resort to making deluded comments about past players being toilet.

Firstly, these people can't possibily be the positive people they claim to be, because if so it would seem they thought our record breaking team from last season, and manager, were rubbish, which is about as deluded and negative as you can get.

So, before you get baited into standing up for sense and defending those clearly quality players, please be warned this is exactly what they want you to do.

Then they can harp on about you moaning and looking at the past and telling you to move on.

There is a theme developing on this site. 'Positive' posters make some ridiculous claim that our former players were a waste of space and that everyone we've bought in is clearly 100% better (even when they haven't let players a competitive game).

Then they indulge in a negative argument calling anyone who disagrees with them a 'neggie' and complaining that all comments on the site are unhelpful and we should move on.

I tell you what - stop bringing up the old players yourselves and digging up old issues and it might help.
Spot on.
JD, we had one here today who even suggested that Targett is better than Shaw!!!!!!! if this was the case why haven't any of the big clubs bought him.

I'd have the lot of them back in a shot including Pochettino, with the new boys in as cover who knows where we might have ended up.

Being a neggie, I want the best and I will not be happy until I get that,I have ambition, a happy clapper is content to put up with what he is given, make the most of itand never question anyone.

I believe that most neggies would be self made men, self-employed go-getters, where as the hc's all work in mundane jobs, content to get the wage every month.
A very good shout Gaz.

There are some us who have a great deal of belief in the club and want to see it succeed. Where others are just content to plod along from season to season without the club leaving any real imprint on a season. I can imagine you are right and that there is indeed a correlation between what we expect from our football club and what we want or expect out of life.

Some people want more out of life than others, and the same goes for what a football fan wants from his club.
Well that is without doubt the most self obsessed and patronising post I have seen on here ..........

You obviously have a very high opinion of yourself ?

We're all fans, well most of us anyway but it's how we express that and how important the long term viability of the club is when the BSKYB money starts to be spread around Europe ....................




.. There are 'Neggies' and also 'Happys' but most of us have a valued opinion which is why this is one of the most supported ??!!?? threads of any local paper ................

The only thing that upsets me is some of the personal and puerile insults at the very people and their family that saved this club ............. ODD !!

Oh by the way as a 'Happy' if you want a job in my Business let me know because as neggies QUOTE ' your all self made go-getters' so you must be exactly what I want ............ hmmmmmmmmmm ! ;-)
I personally have NEVER said anything insulting about the people who saved our club. KL could sell up tomorrow and I for one would be eternally grateful for what her father did for our club. I would like to echo your sentiments regarding the insults aimed at the family who saved our club. Some of the insults aimed at her have been nothing short of disgusting and have NO PLACE on our little forum.

Oh, and I do apologise Buddy if you found my original post patronising, I was just voicing my agreement with Costa's excellent theory. I think you'll agree that Costa missed his calling and should have become a practicing Psychologist. I think it's a theory which is a bit controversial, maybe even not welcome, especially for those that shoe fits, so to speak!
Interesting theory I must admit , just struggling to squeeze that shoe on !!??!! :-)

Hey can't we all line up outside the ground , first home game to admit our ' Log in's ' .......... So we can all 'Meet the Poster' ...... Now that would be worth a few drinks ?
That would be unfair on sammy, it's a long walk from Little Lon.
I will be back in the uk from the 28th
Any poster wants to meet me just post where.
