The Future Of The Club Speaks Out
Friday, 5th Jan 2018 16:00 by Oscar
One of our younger supporters has written a great piece about how he thinks the club should go forward, it's nice to see such a well thought out article and bodes well that the club will be well supported going forward.
Oscar may only be 9 1/2 but he is a passionate Saints fan and he seems to have a handle on what is happening at Saints at the moment that would be impressive from a supporter three times his age
Dear Southampton Football Club,
I am here to inform you about a crisis that must be dealt with. Our current manager `Pellegrino` is driving our otherwise successful football club into a place of jeopardy due to the horrendous squad selections. He constantly changes the team around meaning none of the team are able to play to their strengths as they can’t get used to their new teammates.
Another reason to give him the sack is when we went to play Tottenham Hotspur we had gone through a two hour journey to get there and what do we do? We lose 5-2 once again due to wrong tactics, the wrong players starting and the wrong formation. I personally would play a defensive line up due to the naturally gifted players like Ali, Erikson, Kane and Son all capable of finding the back of the net. So why not play a defensive line up?
What squad to choose?
I would choose this as our usual team...
Boufal Ward Prowse Tadic
Bertrand Hoedt Yoshida Cedric
Who to bring in ?
Lamela Spurs Winger
Coman Bayern Munich Winger
Can Liverpool Central Midfielder
Heaton Burnley Goal Keeper
Batra BVB Centre Back
Why to bring them in…
He is greatly gifted and very comfortable on the ball and best of all he is confident just what our squad is lacking. I would offer around 18M
He has the same style of play but is far better. I would offer around 27M
He would be a very good it with James Ward Prowse. I would offer around 20M
To replace Forster as he lets in far too many sloppy goals .I would offer 12M
To replace Van Dijk as he has gone to Liverpool. I do not know how much to offer
I hope that all Saints supporters consider my views as I am dedicating this article for the future of our football club and hope that this article may change your perspective of our manager.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.

A different league in a different country for two familiar foes; on Sunday Francesco Guidolin's Swansea host Antonio Conte's Chelsea side. So how does the head to head record look from their previous encounters in Italy?
