No one seems to be that interested in Diallo. I knew little about him but isn't he according to some of the more informed on here, potentially a very good signing, good player?

"is that it?"

I'd say compared to the last 4 seasons, maybe more, that is a very decent transfer window!

In:
Salisu: Perm, unknown, but we wanted a centre back and got one
Walker-Peters: Perm, Valery needed replacing as a first choice, this guy seems great
Diallo: Perm, Complete unknown, but looks good enough from Youtube
Walcott: Loan, decent experience, wants to be here, cheap option, nothing to complain about especially if he's decent

Out:
Carillo: Gone for good!
Boufal: Gone for good!
Hoedt: Gone for the season, wages off the books
Elythingy: Whatever, gone again, wages off the books
Reed: Gone, decent money in for a player not rated by 4 or 5 Saints managers
Lemina: Gone, wages off the books
Hojbjerg: Decent money in, was a bit crap for Saints, don't care, good luck to him at Spurs
Plus a couple of kids

I'd say that was a decent little shake up.

Agree with you

Also if (big if) Vestergaard can be consistently decent, that will be like a good new signing.

Absolutely, he looked decent yesterday. Plus I'm not sad to see Forster back as number 2 as I think he's probably better than Gunn. Still time for loans as well, so if Gunn gets loaned out and the club can loan another full back as cover from a different league then all good.

I think the ONE position that still needs cover is Bertrand's. But I guess there is the winter transfer window if needs be.

The only reason this could described as a ‘good window’ is in contrast to the previous ones.

We’ve let Boufal and Carrillo go for free.

We’ve brought in too young unknowns (recent examples: Djenepo, Danso).

And a guy (on loan) who chose Everton over us not so long ago and who now can’t command a place in that team (that finished below us last season).

Don’t get me wrong, hope all the new players turn out to be brilliant signings, but currently I am underwhelmed.

Oh and unless I’m very much mistaken Gao is still in charge...

What was interesting, and a little disturbing is that our trusted ITK's didn't see Walcot coming over the horizon, especially with all that family connection with the area.

people knocking walcott for not being a fixture in the everton side.

which of our forward players would be?
Ings? I would say yes, but I bet no Everton fan would swap DCL for Ings..
Redmond? Nope
Armstrong? Not a chance
Djenepo? not even close
Adams? Having a laugh?

Armstrong, Djenepo and Adams probably would not make the Everton matchday squad, ffs

I still find it very odd that the club made more of a PR effort in the 2 hours after Walcott signed on loan, than they have in the 2 months since Salisu signed.

The team/squad that Saints finished above last season is a completely different one this season. Walcott, when everyone is fit, wouldnt get on the Everton bench.

I wish him well. He’s a very inoffensive player, says all the right things etc and is quite likeable. This move is convenient for him, I just hope it isn’t too convenient and he spends a lot of time injured before heading off to the MLS or China for a final pay packet.

Bit harsh on Armstrong - he’s come on a lot in the last few months. And Redmond can be very useful on his day.

That's precisely my point. We finished above Everton last season but the difference in our levels of ambition is such that we are supposed to get excited about your cast offs.

how many of our forward players would get into the current everton team?

1 at a push

Redmond / Djenepo or Richarlison?
Armstong or James Rodriguez?

even in midifield, Docoure or Romeu?
JwP might get in

Defence, possibly KwP?

even their bench, smallbone or sigurdsson?

With out sounding like a kopite bellend, I’d take any of your goalies over Pickford (he’s doing my head in) and Ings would be on the bench. That’s all I’d want (massively hypothetical) from the Saints squad.

I don't know what point you are making, Jay.

That we've got a weaker side than Everton, and?...

...is it that we should know our place, and be pleased at a few crumbs from the table?

Seriously?
you would only take Ings who very nearly won the golden boot last year, but he would be on your bench. But you would take any of our three shite keepers?? Really?

what else should the club do, we just dont spend money.

We're a premier league team in a big city, with a decent stadium, decent crowds, and (apparently) little debt.

We need to try to do what we were promised when Gao took over - push on the the 'next level'.

He needs to go, and someone with a bit more ambition needs to take over. Until then we are going to be forever trying to convince ourselves that lacklustre windows like this one are a success.

I hear you and agree.

Gao is a total waste of space. No doubt who ever takes over will also promise and massively under-deliver
