Saints Confirm Charlie Austin Transfer Completed
Thursday, 8th Aug 2019 15:56
Saints have officially confirmed that Charlie Austin has joined West Bromwich Albion on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee believed to be around £4.5 -5 million
Some Saints fans have expressed delight that Charlie Austin was leaving the club, but they are very short sighted, whatever your feelings towards him as person he always gave his all in a Saints shirt and although injury blighted his time here, that was not his fault and he scored some vital goals.
He played 34 plus 37 as sub games in the Premier League and scored 16 goals, a decent enough figure given his injury problems and some of those goals were vital, not least the winner at Manchester United on his debut and his final goal for the club against Arsenal back in December that gave Saints all three points.
So to put glib comments on social media about good riddance is unfair to the player who scored 20 goals in 81 appearances in all competitions.
Good luck Charlie Austin at West Brom.

Yesterday was Alfie’s 15th birthday, so I was delighted that the random match generator has selected a game that is an important part of our life together following the U’s. I therefore make no apologies about the focus I will place on this game – I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it did me.

Apologies all, it’s been quite a hectic week at work so this one had to wait until today I’m afraid. I’m off to the New Lawn after this, so looking forward to seeing Noah and anyone else when I get there.
