|Premier Vultures Will Find Saints A Different Proposition In January |
Morgan would be very difficult / impossible to replace, so I don't share the view of cashing in on him. Maybe though a different story with Jay Rod depending on his comeback, but would Spurs really spend £20m on a player that isn't proven to be fit and capable of pre-injury form? No doubt if a deal for JRod was done it would be heavily weighted on appearances etc. Hopefully both of them with sign significantly improved deals at Saints and will stay for a while longer.
|Luke Shaw Departure ! Why It Is Good For Saints !|
This is one of the strangest articles I think I've ever read. It just screams out the you think that Saints are at best mediocre. The reality is that very soon you will be correct, but it didn't have to be this way.
Saints did well last season, but at around Christmas time, when Osvaldo was off the scene, the board should have acted by 1. bringing in or loaning a replacement and 2. calling in to the board room JRod, AL, Shaw and Morgan (possibly Lovren) and telling them that they have all over performed this year and they would be rewarded with better deals. Although they wouldn't be getting 100k at Saints it would have been irritating for AL and Morgan who have been around for a while that Osvaldo was earning more. If Shaw and AL were offered say £70k deals at Christmas I think they may well have stayed. With the TV money, I can't see why we couldn't have done this. The only reason why we didn't is Saints seem to have a very rich owner that wants to run this as a business. If this is correct then we might as well have a Rupert type character. The next month will be crucial as if we get in simply journeyman dross then maybe many fans will turn against her - or maybe Saints fans are just happy to make up the numbers and have no ambition.
