|Saints league position|
at 22:28 15 Sep 2019
So ... I know I know, it's early, but people were w*nking themselves silly about Palace last week, being 4th. If Saints beat Bournemouth on Friday, they'll (temporarily) be 3rd?? Mental, given the fact that the defence is bollocks.
F**k it, what a season this could be ...
Wolves, everyone's pick for the top 6/7 are floundering. Watford are dreadful, Bournemouth not much better, Palace the same. West Ham and Everton are two unknowns really, but the whole league outside Liverpool and Man City is wide open this year. Much better than expected.
|January signings thread|

A post just for Saint22 to list some names ...
But seriously, what positions do you want Saints to strengthen in January, I still think we're lacking some defensive talent. Maybe the defensive midfielder position is the big one still.
|Anyone going to St Mary's tomorrow night?|
at 09:02 9 Sep 2019
As per the subject. Anyone on here off to watch England tomorrow at St Mary's? I completely forgot they were playing there - should actually be interesting as Kosovo are no pushovers.

I absolutely love this guy as a player. He's apparently a decent guy and that hattrick against Villa will live with me forever.
He's gone form strength to strength and surely is now a properly world class player. Maybe £30m was good for Saints at the time, but it really does feel like he went too cheaply.
I hate Liverpool and most of our ex-players, but Mane ... top top class. Sorry ... claaaaaaaass.
|The media; ref Lampard|
at 11:42 15 Jun 2019
This sums up what is wrong with football and the media.
Media report that Sarri is off to Italy, fair enough. They they realise that Chelsea have a vacancy for a new manager.
Frank Lampard's Derby County did okay last season.
Suddenly the media are all over this, talking about Lampard going back to Chelsea. What the release fee is. What he can do. Who he wants on his team.
F**k all respect shown to Derby and no real evidence that the Chelsea board want a manager who has won nothing. Just the media almost trying to force it to happen.
Or is it just me??

|Ralph wants his own staff|
at 14:29 8 May 2019
According to an interview in the Echo. Interesting.
I wonder who he has identified as not being good enough on his coaching team? It's obvious in that interview he's spotted some glaring holes where he feels he can bring better coaches in.
Will be an interesting summer ...
|Saints managers this season|
at 13:57 21 Jan 2019
Matches 1-16 (Hughes + the Kelvin match) - 1 win, 6 draws, 9 losses - 9 points (from 16 matches and 19th in the form table) - equates to 21 points over a whole season
Matches 17-24 (Hassenhüttle) - 4 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses - 13 points (from 7 matches and 5th in the form table) - that equates to a 70 point season over a whole season
What a MASSIVE difference, AND the football is decent to watch, AND the players now look like they care.
RH is pretty damn amazing!

|So, Shoya Nakajima then ... |
at 23:15 3 Jan 2019
Any thoughts? I know f*ck all about him ... apart from he's very short (Ryan Fraser at Bournemouth, short)
|Lads & bantz|
at 09:24 22 Dec 2018
Why does everything now have to about 'bantz' and 'lads' ... it's tiresome.
Lad-this, lad-that, zzzzzzzzzz
On another note, hope all the lads heading to Uddersfield (see what I did there, top bantz) have fun, get your best hats on.
|What a feeling!|
at 20:22 16 Dec 2018
For the first time, in a long long time, I genuinely can't get enough of Saints news, highlights, montages of Ralph Hasenhüttl dancing around and generally a f**king great feel good factor.
I don't expect this every weekend, but to coin a sh*t Saints phrase from the last 2 hideous years; "Bar raised"!
I think the manager could become a legendary Saints manager, let's hope so.
All the players put in a hell of a shift today, but it was noticeable that Ings really came to life. He's had very little training this week, but you can tell he's used to a similar style of work ethic from under Klopp's Liverpool regime.
The match I'm looking forward to the most now ... Saints v Man City ...
at 16:11 4 Dec 2018
I actually think this is a good time for someone like Hasenhüttl to come in.
He's obviously very driven and demanding and will require awesome levels of fitness.
So I don't think we'll see any tactical differences against Cardiff, but against Arsenal, Huddersfield and West Ham, we may well see the team trying to impress a new manager who is demanding.
Let's hope anyway - I'm probably dreaming to be honest.
Then back to earth against Man City
|Ralph's ins and outs, who will thrive|
at 22:39 3 Dec 2018
So sounds like Hasenhüttl is the man.
Who would you bin?
Who would succeed and thrive?
My guess at binning off;
Carillo, Boufal, Austin, Bertrand, Hoedt, Cedric, Reed, Gallagher, Gabbiadini, Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse
Obafemi, Redmond, Bednarek, Yoshida, Valery (and other youngsters), Armstrong and ... I hate to say it, but I still think Long will enjoy this running about stuff ........
One other left of field player who could be okay in this type of system ... Clasie. Don't shout at me ...
Plus I have no idea about Ings. Ings + Obafemi might be quite a nice combo, but I have a feeling he's going to be a sick note. At the moment I'm hoping this deal the club have with Liverpool isn't followed up ...

at 22:17 18 Oct 2018
Just come across this? WTF? How come this has been kept quiet, is it true??
at 23:00 13 Aug 2018
I'm going to stick my neck out here, but he's spent isn't he?
He's not going to get 10 goals this season, no 'bigger' club would want him and he's FAR too slow for this league. I think he's on borrowed time.
at 18:29 11 Aug 2018
Remind me of Middlesbrough in the mid-90s, when they rocked up with Ravenelli, Juninho (who was pretty incredible and underrated) and Emerson. 3 top players - I'm sure they signed a few others too.
But it wasn't enough each time they came up and I can see Wolves being a similar team, they're a bit of an eclectic bunch of 'players' rather than a team. We'll see, I may be wrong.
|New centre backs|
at 08:12 30 Jun 2018
Thought I'd do a football thread for a change ... So we're linked with 3 new centre backs. Based on nothing other than a few TV clips and Youtube videos, I'd sign them all.
If 1 turns out to be brilliant, then job done.
Question is who would you move on from Yoshida, Bednarek, Hoedt and Stephens?
I'd move Hoedt and Stephens on.
Yoshida I like as a back up player and as an experienced head, Stephens I just don't think is going to be much other than a very good Championship defender.
