Sky Sports Claim Saints Sale Talks Held Up By Corona Virus
at 21:19:46

underweststand - If he does sell for £250m then a £40m profit is a great return on his short term investment, even if he took no salary or dividends.

Claus5 - you raise a good point, I would say if he does sell, then the proof will be in whether the proceeds are paid into his bank account in China or his bank account in the Cayman Islands...

Forget Full Backs It's A Central Defender We Need !

A ‘Dutch auction’ is one where the price starts high and is lowered until you find a buyer. What you are referring to, where the price goes up as more bids come in, is just an auction.

“The rest of the team aside from the defence is solid” 🤣🤣🤣 nearly as good as your “we have a great manager” comment a few weeks ago!!!

Danso Must Play In The Centre Of Defence At Wolves
at 22:12:15

I agree we have a major issue with our CB’s but I think it’s too simplistic to blame everything on them.

I’m not sure if Ralph is losing the plot or just isn’t as good as we all thought he was. He certainly had a ‘new manager bounce’, and he’s certainly passionate and a good motivator. But I don’t think he’s much of a tactician or organiser.

When Saints drew 3-3 with Bournemouth last season at Mary’s it was embarrassing how easily they scored against us on the counter (or should I say ‘transition’), but we are conceding similar goals this season. With two holding midfielders, that should never happen and it wouldn’t have happened when spider and wanyama were playing together.

So yes we still have shite centre backs, but the midfield should be protecting them better and a lack of competition in midfield may be another reason for this.

Saints At Tottenham Hotspur The Verdict
at 20:07:46

Just two things from me:

1. I think it’s harsh to blame Gunn for the first goal, what’s the point in having a defence if they’re just going to stand on the six-yard box, they should be throwing their bodies at the striker for the first goal.

2. As mentioned by others above, the team that started against spurs (except for Boufal) was the same bunch of under-achievers from the last two or three seasons, so why expect a better return? Proof of another failed transfer window.

This deal appears to have gone through as a loan, great news! And a great transfer window for Saints in my opinion. Just need to offload a few more before the European window closes. COYS

West Brom Could Snatch Deadline Day Deal For Austin
at 13:43:37

The first game I took my son to see was Saints vs Liverpool a few seasons ago (0-0 Austin missed a sitter, VVD was immense for us), and we saw Austin after the game in Winchester services on the M3, Burger King in one hand, a box of 12 Krispy Kreams in the other. Not the modern footballer by any stretch, but I am eternally grateful for that moment. Good luck Charlie 12 donuts.

Saints V FC Koln The Verdict
at 10:27:54

I agree that it “won’t be a total disaster” if we don’t get a CB in before the window closes, but if we don’t then it’s totally inexplicable. I’m fairly sure Nick that you commented at the start of the window that if we we hadn’t bought a CB in you would be the first to kick off, why the change of heart?

A record number of season ticket holders deserve a good season not a “solid season”.

Does Hughes Have A Selection Dilemma For The Chelsea Game ?
at 18:47:42

I don’t expect many to agree with me but I’d set the team up like this:

McCarthy
Bertrand, Hoedt, Yoshida
Redmond, Hojbjerg, Armstrong, Lemina, ward-prowse
Ings, Gabi

Saints At Wolverhampton Wanderers The Preview
at 12:57:43

Overall our squad looks good on paper but I think our defenders (apart from Berty) are shite. We aren’t gonna keep many clean sheets this season so we’re gonna have to score at least two goals in a game to get a result.

Ings Is A Fan Of The Long Game

The fact that Long is a first choice player when we have a fully fit squad is a damning indictment of our transfer dealings over the last 3 years. End of.

Saints Need A Leader On The Pitch !
at 21:53:44

I think it’s too soon for Vestergaard, he’s still finding his feet in the PL. Lemina has surely ruled himself out with the driving offence, Hojbjerg was needlessly sent off and Hoedt needs to worry about his own game before he can rally the troops. No obvious contenders in the centre of he park.

I’d give the armband to McCarthy. He’s the only player guaranteed to start, on merit, and it might give him the added confidence to marshal the defence. I like a captain that leads by example and for me he is the only player that does that consistently and is a guaranteed starter.

I would prefer it to be an outfield player though...

Saints V Burnley The Verdict
at 19:43:34

On a couple of occasions in the second half we just needed a decent cross from the right and we would have scored. It was great to see so many players attacking the box! Dare I say it but I felt that JWP could have been the answer?!

Is It Time For James Ward Prowse To Leave St Mary's
at 10:32:37

I think we should keep him for one more season but try to convert him to RWB to make use of his crossing abilities. He’s not good enough to dominate the midfield and drive the team forward, and that’s a massive shame for Saints and England. But then if he was he’d be worth £50m not £10m.
