Yan Valery Joins Birmingham City On Loan
Monday, 1st Feb 2021 23:29

A couple of years ago Yan Valery looked the latest talent to emerge from the Saints academy, however despite our injury issues he has been allowed to join Birmingham City for the rest of the season.

Yan Valery is off to the Blues of Birmingham on loan, whether this is the start of the end of his career at St Mary's or a chance for him to play some games and get some confidence back is unknown, only time will tell.

Hopefully the player will show the quality he clearly has, but has been hampered over the last 16 months by various issues.

This has been one of our shitest transfer market in quite a while! I mean we REALLY needed another central striker, central midfielder, a left back and and NOW a right back! And out of all those 4 options we got.... NONE! I mean yeah we’ve pretty much signed this winger but that position literally has to be the one we need least at the moment yet over a month that’s all we’ve got!!! (but of course he does look decent and it can’t harm us, but it’s just frustrating that we’ve wasted a month on signing nobody we need!)

Sorry but why have we let Viking and Valery go as we now LITERALLY have 1 fullback for each side! And as recent results have shown, we really don’t cope well without just one of them, let alone both of them! But yet we still decide to let them go out on loan even though we hadn’t got replacements or such!

Look in the end it just sums up our shit owner and board as we could’ve pushed for Europe and the FA cup but have had a major drop almost completely down to injuries, yet when we FINALLY need that money to get the players we need, that we got from selling Mane, Van Dijk, Schniderlyn etc, we get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from our shit ass owner!!! I mean other than Newcastle I honestly don’t think there’s a worse owner than the one we’re stuck with!

It does seem very odd. Who will play RB tomorrow? KWP is
injured and JWP will have to play MF so are we saying Djnepo vs Rashford? This doesnt feel right to me. Am I missing something? I hope so...

Utter joke of a transfer window.

Firstly, most fans would surely agree that (for whatever reason) Valery didn't impress or show enough enthusiasm and application in the recent Villa game, which was his chance for redemption after a long absence from the start side.
IF ...he has any chance of rivalling KWP for the RB spot, he has a long way to improve, and regular game time with a Championship side like Brum. could be his way back.
IF not (?) then his career maybe elsewhere .
Now that we have our two " most promising" full-backs out on loan it will give us (and them) a chance to see how they fare in the real football world,and although one look at Man.U's bench is not too encouraging , with our injury list to contend with it doesn't auger well...and as for tonight's line-up . We must remember our new club motto ..

underweststand: no one is questioning Ralph. He's beyond blame for these matters.

More scrutiny and pressure needs to be placed on the ownership structure. Look at Spurs. They haven't spent a tremendous amount of money over the last 7 years or so and they've by in large managed to keep their star players and further strengthen their squad.

Today no one will question Spurs' Champions League credentials. That wasn't the case 6-7 years ago. This is mainly due to the vision and prudence of Daniel Levy.

Even in this transfer window, they could have let Dele Alli go but they didn't. Even there was even an inquest into why they let KWP go--even though he couldn't get a sniff in their starting line-up.

We just don't seem to have competent owners. It's a real shame because we should be back in the lower leagues if not for the quality of managers we've had over the past 8-years.

We'll be lucky to keep Ralph this summer if I'm honest. He'll easily be in contention for any top European club for sure!

I am bewildered and angry that we have let Valery go out on loan. RH prefers to go back to his old ways of playing players in their wrong positions and we can remember how disastrous that period was.

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved the greatest cup giant-killing ever!

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
