Saints Target For Second Half Of The Season Is Realistic And Achievable.
at 13:18:08

I still think Ralph's 'youth obsession' is the problem here. It has been clear since his arrival that we needed an organiser in this position. WE got 20 yr old Danso..... Given that we are 'strapped for cash' our only option was and still is an older player nearing the end of his contract. High wages yes, but little or no fee. Has he learnt?

Saints January Transfer Window Needs To Concentrate On One Area Only !

I should have mentioned, as you did, the misguided 'age bias' in my last sentence.

Saints January Transfer Window Needs To Concentrate On One Area Only !
at 10:32:32

For how long has this need been obvious? Ralph has no excuses.... He had the luxury of half last season and a full pre-season to evaluate his squad, yet he puts his trust in Vestergaard?
OK, we're skint and had to trade to scrape up some cash, but he bought a forward when an experienced CB should have been the 'out and out' priority!. This, and him ignoring our need for a leader in this position, (a Cahill type), raise questions about Ralph's judgement.

The Worst Defence In The Premier League !
at 13:06:37

I'm sure this is down to Ralph not recognising how poor Vester is.... His 'stock' was high enough in the Summer to have persuaded the board to find the money somehow if he was of that mind...or does he believe he can 'walk on water'? and conver tdross into gold? You know it, I know it, everybodycould see it coming.
I mentioned Cahill and Jagielka on here and on the DE site on multiple occasions as short term options without much capital outlay... We needed an organiser/ leader, not another novice!

Ralph Hails Defensive Improvement ! But Is He Right To ?

Plus, there was little defensive improvement Saturday, even second half. We dominated in midfield and attack...

Ralph Hails Defensive Improvement ! But Is He Right To ?
at 11:17:25

We're not flush with cash, but I'm sure they'd have stumped up funds for a CB/ leader if he'd have pushed for one. Why didn't he??? He seems obsessed with youngsters, is he worried about the challenges to his 'game plans' an experienced older guy like Cahill might bring?
Vester was back to being a liability on Saturday. He makes as many mistakes as Hoedt ever did, plus he can't jump.!

Is Lemina's Big Club Move Just A Pipe Dream
at 16:14:48

Do the club actively promote this verbal deal to attract good players? It doesn't sit well with me.
We can either demonise Reed or the player over this... Perhaps both?
It's certain that we've invested a lot in cash and specialist medical care and seen little in return.
His actions are dishonourable... even though I cynically suspect that the club (who need the cash for defenders?), may have made his mind up for him!

Saints Open Bidding War On Striker
at 15:13:47

What tripe. Both sides know that he will be sold for around £15m. Why antagonise the sellers by offering a derisory amount when they know they will be in competition when it gets serious?

Jordy Clasie Fined !

I agree ace. We are well served in midfield and still have Lemina to hopefully blossom. We do NOT want another diminutive guy in a team which already struggles aerially.

Ralph Krueger Departure ! The Reaction !
at 19:19:58

During Krueger's tenure.... we have gone from 'cash rich' (VVD) to 'cash poor' and you could say the same about the quality of many of the players. Mistakes, mainly in recruitment, have dumped us in a deep financial hole which will be difficult to escape.... Is that why Reed and Krueger have thought it prudent to escape?

Cedric Likely To Return To St Mary's In The Summer

He should have been sold when the hype about him being a Portugese international was at its height.

He can't defend crosses or make them any more. Add him to the list of those we will struggle to sell for enough money to fund strengthening in the Summer.

Saints At Liverpool The Preview
at 13:00:03

Becoming increasingly worried about Hughes selections and decision making.
Also read DE article today where he was talking about recent failings.
No mentioning, "we'll work hard in training to eradicate the problems", but.....
"It's just something that has happened, It will go away in the future"....

Why am I not re-assured?

Solid Start To Season For Saints
at 17:19:13

Well said highfield. There have been some strange positional selections, Currently, has Redmond been tried in his natural position on the right?
I'm a tad concerned about a few good players being 'marginalised?' Gabbi, Bednarek, Armstrong not even on the bench? Armstrong was like a breath of fresh air, first thought FORWARD..... Something some of our players could still learn from.
OK 2-0 justifies the selections, but?........

A Dose Of Realism Needed With the Outgoing Loan Deals
at 14:20:17

Sims,Reed, Targett and McQueen are still young enough for us and them to get some advantage from going out on loan.
I'm more concerned about Senior players like Clasie and Boufal (and Forster). If the two loanees don't earn themselves contracts, Will all three be back here next Summer drawing huge wages, a year older, and even less likely to find another club? They should have been off-loaded for whatever we could get,FF for a 'free' to subsidise his wages!

McQueen Set For Bristol City
at 14:49:07

I can't imagine the offer for McQueen would be a lot af money whereas £14m for Targett might be tempting.. There's a worrying amount of 'dead' money involved with our surplus players at the moment and it may force their hands.
TBH, unless Targett has upped his game since I last watched him, I don't think he's any better than McQueen.

Is It Time For James Ward Prowse To Leave St Mary's
at 14:37:12

I haven't got a big 'downer' on him but for me he epitomises what's been wrong with our play for a couple of seasons. He stifles momentum.... As for his outstanding dead ball delivery.... It looks excellent, but how many actual assists is he credited with from all those corners and free kicks??? I'd let him go, but for another 4/5m. Targett and McQueen moves still alive apparently. I suspect £14m for Targett might be a temptation.

Cedric Could Play Against Burnley Despite Illness
at 11:33:19

I think Cedric is over-rated anyway. His crossing is dreadful and in defence he's targetted by deep crosses and beaten in the air too often. That said, how have the club failed to get in a 'number 2' number 2 and failed to strengthen the other obvious weak areas yet again?
