Should Saints Go For Alex Oxlade Chamberlain From Liverpool ?
at 10:48:44

In my view he's probably a better player than any of our current mid fielders. Money shouldn't be that much of an issue now that Forster is off the books. Move on Long, Walcott and any of several other low contributors and a reasonable wage offer could be made. The biggest problem, should he be willing to come back to the club, is length of contract because the high intensity game isn't kind to ageing legs. Maybe a deal whereby we get him on loan with the offer of a shorter term contract agreed next summer if things work out?
I'm hoping that Svanberg has already already agreed a contract and Bologna are going to accept a realistic fee because, as you've said Nick, we can't afford to haggle with the new season so few weeks away.

Svanberg or Downes? Hmmm, tough decision to be made. We can only trust that somebody at the club actually knows what they're doing.

I guess Salisu will be the next to go then, it appears as though Bednarek and Lyanco have already said that they're not willing to play on the same pitch as Stephens and McCarthy next season.

Jan Bednarek Set To leave Southampton
at 15:53:50

Any player who doesn't want to proudly wear the shirt should be shown the exit door. If he wants to go and kiss the badge at Roma good luck to him. A fee of 15 million Euros and his wages off the books is much better deal than hanging on to a player whose value will drop when he isn't playing for club or country.

Southampton Away Travel Still Have Places Left For Klagenfurt Trip
at 09:34:24

Not too surprising Nick with most of us considering how much fuel to put in the car, how much food to put in the shopping basket, how much to put aside to pay for the next energy bill. Justifying a trip to Klagenfurt isn't even on the agenda. No blame attached to you, you're only passing on information, and for those able to go on the trip then have a great couple of days away.

Southampton Chasing 6ft 7inch Austrian "Peter Crouch"
at 16:53:10

We don't have a great track record in recent years when spending on strikers do we? It doesn't seem to matter what nationality they are or how much we pay they don't score many goals. Even Mane and Pelle weren't exactly prolific when finding the net. Maybe the rumoured loan of Liam Delap would be a better use of funds despite his lack of top level experience. As for Broja, I think he's still some way off the finished article and not worth more than £15m with an inevitable sell on clause included.

Saints Reach Agreement On Next New Signing
at 16:22:30

I hope this transfer gets finalised quickly, I've got a feeling that we are about to sign a top class player for not a lot of money. Next season is looking a lot more promising than it was a couple of weeks ago.

Saints Sign Central Defender
at 09:45:39

If there is real intent to sign Mattias Svanberg from Bologna as well then we could be building something quite exciting. Add in a goal scorer and we are going to be a team that has the pundits queueing up, with the obligatory cheque book waving fervour, demanding Liverpool, Spurs, Utd etc etc buy our new talents for knock down prices. Already "too good for small club Southampton" I hear the loathsome experts wail wondering why the likes of Villa and Newcastle missed out on our new gems. Fingers crossed.

Saints Announce Double Goalkeeper Signings
at 10:24:53

I'm hoping Willy Caballero is the go to guy if Bazunu doesn't impress, every forward in the country knows how to beat McCarthy at the near post now.
I think Gavin will prove to be a very astute signing and have high hopes that he will play an absolute blinder in the final game of the season to deny Liverpool the league title.

Brexit Scuppers Southampton Goalkeeper Signing !
at 15:49:26

I don't see what the pro-Brexiteers are grumbling about, I'm sure that Nigel Farage would have explained the free movement of citizens knock on effect to all of his followers. That aside we can still sign Mattias Svanberg from Bologna because he seems to tick all of the necessary profile boxes.
However, let's be optimistic and believe that the ongoing deal to sign Gavin Bazunu is the way to solve our goalkeeping issues.

Saints Make Offer For Swedish International Midfielder
at 17:04:06

Let's face it there isn't any real competition for midfield places at present. JWP and Romeu have been pretty much nailed on starters for months and the we have the serial underperformers Elyounoussi, Redmond, Armstrong, Djenepo, Diallo, not forgetting Long and Walcott of course. Smallbone has potential but needs more game time, possibly on a loan deal.
Compared to the above Svanberg already looks different class and I've never seen him kick a ball. At present I'm desperately hoping that the incoming coaches can get new life out of the majority of the squad because we simply cannot go into next season with the performance level that we've witnessed for far too long.

Premier League Fixtures Due Out This Week

Nick, if getting my life back involves another season of watching McCarthy, Stephens, Long etc then I can honestly say the fixtures won't be disrupting my social calendar too much. Despite the nauseating wait for poverty stricken players to pick up their loyalty bonuses and the inevitable cards being played close to the club chest concerning potential signings we need to see some real ambition from the club before getting enthused by another potential 9-0 defeat.

Saints Confirm That Alex McCarthy And Jack Stephens Will Stay
at 09:39:19

Just about every supporter is probably trying to be optimistic and looking forward to a new season and fresh start felly1. My problem is that the fresh start has already been jaded by the prospect of McCarthy and Stephens playing any part in the team next season. We know exactly what their limits are and neither is going to improve technically or mentally, in short they are not good enough at top level. Maybe Caballero and Long have a role as experienced squad players who wont let us down if asked to leave the bench, sometimes youth and inexperience are too risky when substitutes are required.
At present I'm feeling let down and a bit cheated because I was hoping that £millions wouldn't be squandered on wages for players who will contribute little or nothing next season.
