Austin 09:25 - Jul 14 with 4879 viewsSonicBoom

Seems he's turned down a move to West Brom despite the club's agreeing a fee. Guess he doesn't want a drop in wages and is happy to stay here.
Any ITK info?

Unfortunately for us there are a very small pool of clubs that would take Austin and end he’d move to. From what I’ve heard he may well see out his contract here now. Although things change every day of course.

I am definitely not in the know, so it is mere gut feeling and my gut feeling is that some of our more expensive now out of favour players are playing it difficult with Saints and effectively calling the shots when it comes when or if they will move and the terms for agreeing any move.

I suppose in their shoes I would do the same.

I am sensing the inability of being able to off-load some of those expensive out of favour players will similarly impact our ability to improve our squad further this summer and again, in one of our most critical areas, as the days and weeks start to erode towards the start of the season we will be left be ruing another transfer window where we are left with an inadequate defence.

Unless of course, our good friend TCM knows different! ;-)

Hmm. But also Austin is nearing the end of his career. Doesn't he just want to PLAY?
West Brom would probably pay him at least 20 grand a week so still the national yearly wage in a fortnight.
I know it's easy to say but I'm pretty sure I'd want to be on a pitch. You're a long time retired.

You’d think that would be the case wouldn’t you.

Austin is on a lot more than that at saints, plus he will know with every passing day saints will be more desperate to get him off the books. He’ll also know he’ll be in an even stronger position in January and stronger still next summer when he will be available for nothing. Unfortunately
For us we dont want Austin but, can’t force him to move and there are only a small pool of clubs that are able to take him off our hands.

All true.
Just a modern symptom that footballers happy to sacrifice playing time for money.
Although he knows he'd probably just get injured anyway.

He can't run, he can't score' he can't assist, he can't defend.
Saints don't want him, RH doesn't want him, the fans don't want him.
He wants to stay to milk the great cash cow Saints FC, very similar to that talent less Davis who even turned down a 6 month loan to milk us to the last second.

I really hope RH gets tough and threatens to make them train with the U18's.

Most normal men would kill to play football to this standard for nothing for the love of the great game.

These mercenaries are an absolute f*****g disgrace.

Because footballers are precious, delicate little flowers these days in a world where flashing off your wealth, your lifestyle, your 'own brand' on social media is far more important to them than actually kicking the ball for a living. The sport is riddled with numerous examples of players making it to the 'cash cow' that is English Premier League & whom are quite content to be paid for not kicking a ball.

Austin would have been paid a very considerable wage at WBA of course... but then he wouldn't have 'Brand Austin' exposure on MOTD every Saturday night. How much is the fella already worth? How many more millions do you really need in life? If it was all about the football - he'd have signed for them. I remember the words of Gaston Ramirez when he signed for us from Bologna:

"I could not refuse, it's the classic offer you cannot refuse.

"I would have a four-year deal and they are giving me so much more money that would go towards my family and my future
."

Love life. Love music.

Harsh to compare Steven Davis to Austin.

Steven Davis was a great signing for Saints, was crucial for us in our first season back in the Prem.

Davis was a brilliant signing for what he cost. A very good player, okay his last season or so wasnt so good but for 3-4 years he was a very good player for us.

Not harsh, Davis was a slow passenger for 2 seasons and he showed his true colours when he refused to transfer to his dream team so he could be paid by us to play for Rangers. Disgrace.

He was below par, didn't score, gave the ball away, didn't assist and was off the pace. Apart from that you're right TCM 1/2 he was great.

Why is he a mercenary? He negotiated a contract and is merely standing by that. Just because he may no longer suit Saints doesn’t mean the club has the right to expect his agreement to drop away. We all complain like hell when the boot’s on the other foot when players of value demand to leave and ignore their (sometime freshly signed) contracts. Cvnts like Van Dijk for example.

He would rather sit on a bench for 12 months and collect the remainder of his contract than play football for West Brom. Mercenary. Fact. Proven. Anything else black you've got that looks white to you?

He's on less than Forster and he Deffinatly will not leave for less than he's on. 90k a week? That's what I heard not bad for a third choice keeper.
