The true cost of the 'fishy' dealings will be for the following unwanted or unused players:
Jannik Vestergaard wages + fee £27,360,000
Jack Stephens wages £7,020,000
Wesley Hoedt wages + fee £25,360,000
Mohamed Elyounoussi wages + fee £31,600,000
Mario Lemina wages + fee £30,480,000
Sofiane Boufal wages + fee £30,480,000
Guido Carrillo wages + fee £34,640,000
Fraser Forster wages + fee £31,840,000
Total in 'fishy' dealings £190m plus.
No wonder we're in trouble. No point in getting on players backs now. Gao needs to put £100m in to solve the problem NOT player selection or training. What Premiership manager has ever been asked to use the same squad for the entire length of his contract, it's ludicrous.
Mistakes have to be paid for. Gao's mistake was to buy the club after the terrible trio (Kat/Kruger/Reed) had been let loose whilst the deal was being delayed and went crazy. The players listed have to have their values written down, get moved on, and be replaced by premiership quality players. A normal business would get a loan to get the business on track especially when they're guaranteed very large regular income.
Gao didn't cause the problem but he is the only one who can get us out of the s**t now.

It seems that Les didn't double the prices for players coming in, it was MORE than double. And wages too plus contract lengths (triple for failure Hughes plus extra for Forster).
Was this an oversight? Was Les inexperienced in transfers? Did he lose his marbles? None of these I think, more to do with 'friendly' agents possibly.
I wonder if he's grinning away to himself every time he sees that we can't complete any transfers since he was found out and sacked. Looks like Les is going to be in control for another couple of years. Let's hope we are able to stay in the Premiership. Thank god for RH.

There's talk of a strike partnership starting in Holland with these two. I was hoping to see Ings doing a No 10 role which I think suits his talents perfectly. Of course, this may edge JWP to the bench but, hey, you can't have everything.
|Is Ross going to get it all wrong at this crucial time in the window?|

If these Echo rumours are true then Saints should accept the highest of three offers for Lemina and move on. He was grossly overvalued by Reed when he came here two years ago and I thought that Ross would have been aware of that. Let's hope he wasn't more involved that we thought in those poor transfers and is trying to save face by asking for too much money.
Ross, Lemina is NOT worth £15M, it doesn't matter how much you wish he was, and that goes for the other surplus players as well. Halve or quarter the valuations, sell 'em, move on. Don't let RH down now.

"A HOST of Saints stars are about to enter the final two years of their south coast contracts," according to the Echo.
Surely Saints have learnt their lesson about inflated Premiership contracts for Championship quality players. There are no players worth hanging on to in the squad, they all need replacing eventually.
Please SFC let all their contracts run right down and out!
