Play Southampton FC Transfer Window I Spy
Friday, 1st Jul 2022 08:21

Those of us brought up in the 1960's & 70's will remember the game of I spy which was used in the days before portable gaming devices to amuse young children on long journeys, now the Ugly Inside is introducing it's own version for the next two months in the transfer window.

Anyone born after the end of the 1980's will not remember a time that will seem almost Jurassic to them, the time when children had to go on long car journeys with nothing to amuse them but looking out of the window.

In came the game of I spy, that came in two forms, the first was when one person would say "I spy with my little eye something beginning with A,B C etc and then the others would have to guess what it is or the alternate version was I spy books where the child had to tick off things he had seen on the journey.

The Ugly Inside version is similar to the latter, this time though we are looking to tick off clubs where we have been linked with buying one of their players, with a month already gone of the window and two more to go, the big question is can Saints be linked with 100 or more football clubs across not just the UK but also Europe and the rest of the World.

I need to lay down a few rules for this.

1. All registered names need to be done in the comments section under this story, those put up on the message board will not be counted.

2. It needs to be a genuine story in the media, claims that you have seen Jack Grealish in Greggs in Shirley are not allowed.

3.Incoming transfer only & only this transfer window

4. It is clubs only not players, but both must be named in the entry

5. There are absolutely no prizes for this competition

6. My decision is final

7. A player can't have a club be counted twice if he was out on loan last season elsewhere

8. There may be other rules added

9. We are closely linked with a major sponsor to provide prizes, so rule 5 might change, I can confirm that talks are at an advanced stage and the sponsor is likely to be having a medical as we speak.

10. Each club can only be counted once, unlike Bullseye though being linked with a second player from the same club will not mean nothing in this game for two in a bed.

So I'll get the ball started with a few clubs we have been linked with so far.


Manchester City - Bazunu
Altay (Turkey - Lis
Fiorentina - Dragowski
Manchester United - Dean Henderson
West Brom - Sam Johnstone

Bochum- Kotchap
Chelsea - Colwill

Bologna - Svenberg
Swansea - Downes
Burnley - Brownhill

VfB Stuttgart - Sasa Kalajdzic

That is your started for 10 (well 11) and that is just the start, there are plenty more clubs that we have already been linked with.

So can we reach that magical three figure number of clubs by September 1st, surely a testament to the club's scouting system and also the ability of ex professional footballers long faded from the limelight who are looking to make a quick buck to be able to put two and two together and make 23 and link us to a striker or two.

As I Typed this we were linked with Chris Richard of Bayern Munich, this game is certainly fast paced.
