Javier Hernandez, middle, in action for Manchester United

Javier Hernandez, middle, in action for Manchester United

First published in Football
Last updated

SAINTS are being linked with Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexico forward - who celebrated his 26th birthday last weekend - is currently preparing for his country's World Cup adventure.

He has scored 37 Premier League goals for the Red Devils in four full seasons at Old Trafford, having made 48 starts and 53 more appearances off the bench.

The man nicknamed 'Little Pea' netted nine goals in 35 league and cup outings last season, but only four of the goals came in the league.

Saints are reportedly keen to bring Hernandez to St Mary's as part of any deal that takes England left back Luke Shaw to Manchester.

Chicorito would score loads of goals for us and would benefit from regular first team football. As Shaw has so much potential, we ought to ask for £20m cash too.

As long as cash is part of the deal as well, I could live with this, and I'm sure Hernandez would appreciate the step up from Man Utd.

Firtly, before I start, "Little Pea" (the literal translation) is not a good rendering of Chicharito. I have spent many years in Mexico and my late wife was Mexican. You can imagine how often his name came up. The term refers to the eyes, pea eyes, not little pea, and he has the diminutive because he is the son of the original "pea eyes", i.e. Chicharito son of Chicharo. Seeing his name translated as "Little Pea" has irked me for some time now. Take note, all you journalists please.
So it should be little pea eyes or simply pea eyes sounds more natural. Although it refers to the colour green, so perhaps green eyes would sound more acceptable. As reported previously, colour means a lot in Mexico - skin, eyes, hair, etc. My wife's mum used to call me blue eyes.

If this happened, it would make Saints a household name throughout Mexico and many many people would suddenly make us their favourite European club.

Sounds great - but just a few questions that need answering if anyone can help !!!

1.Who is demanding this as part of the deal?
2. Does it mean we have installed our new manager and are just waiting to announce it?
3. If not, what if the new manager doesn't want Hernandez?
4. Is Les Reed picking the players we sign now?

Sounds unlikely to me as such a deal would presumably need the input of the new manager and we are still waiting on that front. Sounds like more media manipulation by Moan U to create noise and uncertainty around the Shaw deal with the ultimate aim of unsettling the player. The clear implication here is we are willing to sell. Ultimately that may be the case but not until after the WC and not until a new manager is appointed and he has had his say!

I'm kind of with you on that. There are signs he's lost his sharpness from all the bench warming as well.

That said, being linked with anyone of that kind of stature (reputation wise) can't be a bad thing.

... and, while we are talking player swaps with Man Utd, with Koeman coming in potentially they have a 'surplus to requirements' young Dutch attacking left back on their books that we've shown an interest in previously. I say surplus to requirements because Evra recently signed on, if only on a short-term contract. Surely Buttner wouldn't be happy as third in line?

While I agree it is flattering to be associated with Hernandez. I would prefer to get the £30m in cash for Luke Shaw up front, so that if Koeman is to be our next manager he has this as part of his spending budget. As good as Hernandez is, I would like to see Graziano Pelle follow Koeman to St Marys; he has real heading ability like Rickie Lambert, and a great finishing ratio. Whether he could make the move up to the premieship, I would n't like to say....I'd rather leave that to Koeman to decide.

Yes, he's a good player. It's not a matter of what I want to call him - that mail was for the Echo editor.

He is a good player but his performances for Mexico lately have been below par. I reckon that he has really lost confidence at Man U and could be an excellent buy for us.

From a reasonably good source......the deal for Lallana has already been done 15th May apparently.No mention of money,but apparently all signed sealed etc,off to scouse land.
So if true Mr Krueger,your statement means absolute jack,that no one will leave the club before a manager is installed.
All of a sudden £50million transfer budget seems smaller,unless that is £50million plus whatever we get for our players.
Thoughts??

Hernandez can't play 90 minutes... he also needs everything on a plate towards the end of games...

He is a good player and a great goal scorer.... but then again Dani and Gaston were supposed to be too but they turned out to be sh1t.

If Koeman does double sessions like that unspeakable specimen from Twattingham Schitspur has shown to work then he should be like Lallana and last 65/70 mins before too long. Anything we get over 70 has to be a step forward.

If Ronko becomes our manager, his preferred team shape is 3-5-2, with full backs playing more as wingers.
Shaw could be a very important part, of that team, so I would expect Ronko to make every effort to keep him.
Unless of course, Ronko has a more than adequate replacement lined up, in which case get as much of Utd's reported £240m transfer pot as possible.

Nat Clyne can do that job down both sides. Feyenoord have great young wing backs one down the left one down the right - just saying.....
Chris Smalling is rumoured to be avail as is Micah Hyde - again - just saying.........
Marshall, Ruddy might be prised away at the right price - just saying....

Feyenoord have a great young MF and a giant of a striker too apparently -
somebody already posted his name on here.

Hunt is avail on a free - what a signing that would be.

Don't know for sure who else is going yet though so no point dreaming really.

There are two parts to a deal. I'm pretty sure that the players, their agents and the buying clubs have agreed their terms and have their minds totally set on the moves.

That's why they are trying to put petty pressure on us to agree a fee.

My guess is that the other part of the deals - the important part where we actually agree to them leaving - is not done.

All a bit underhand of the players, their agents and the buying clubs.

As I've stated - I'd be happy to see us sell Luke for the right deal, especially if a top young player is involved in the swap.

As for Adam, I think we should play hard ball and make him stay for the season unless a club offers £10 million extra than the reported fee.

All of a sudden £50million transfer budget seems smaller,unless that is £50million plus whatever we get for our players. Thoughts??[/p][/quote]How can he sign for diver pool on the 15th may when the transfer window did not open until the end of may? i think you have been on the sauce.[/p][/quote]I am only writing what I have been told.....a mate of a mate that knows Lallana's father. My mate is well into his football....just saying Yes your right in what you say,the transfer window was not open,but the deal was done apparently.Time will tell I guess. I hope he doesn't go,as with other players.Like many have posted we are only 2-3 players away from something big. Coyr Supersaints[/p][/quote]Only time will tell. No not really, does that mean if he does go you will gloat and say I was right. We'll my next door neighbour spoke to luke. that deal with Man U was signed two weeks ago. If he goes am I now a reliable source too[/p][/quote]There are two parts to a deal. I'm pretty sure that the players, their agents and the buying clubs have agreed their terms and have their minds totally set on the moves.

I wonder how many players a club can buy from another club. The FA should set a maximum of 1 player IMO.

This is simply not on (Liverpool's exploits) - they might as well buy the lot -- stadium, players, training ground, shares......

Firtly, before I start, "Little Pea" (the literal translation) is not a good rendering of Chicharito. I have spent many years in Mexico and my late wife was Mexican. You can imagine how often his name came up. The term refers to the eyes, pea eyes, not little pea, and he has the diminutive because he is the son of the original "pea eyes", i.e. Chicharito son of Chicharo. Seeing his name translated as "Little Pea" has irked me for some time now. Take note, all you journalists please.
So it should be little pea eyes or simply pea eyes sounds more natural. Although it refers to the colour green, so perhaps green eyes would sound more acceptable. As reported previously, colour means a lot in Mexico - skin, eyes, hair, etc. My wife's mum used to call me blue eyes.

If this happened, it would make Saints a household name throughout Mexico and many many people would suddenly make us their favourite European club.
Would be a pea eyes de resistance signing if it happened.
Bravo!
