  1. Yep. Whatever happened to that Shearer character. One hat trick on his debut and never heard off again. https://www.saintsweb.co.uk/images/smilies/wink.gif
  2. Tall, similar build to a young Morgan Schneiderlin. Has a great shot and free kick in him. It's massive ask for someone of his age but with the right protection he could be a surprise regular.
  3. I think this works for everyone. The villains get a steady player with a great cross, who just needs games. We end up with Bertrand / Vokins which is by far my preference to a Targett / Vokins / (+ ANother possible cheap buy in) option.

    Ryan Bertrand

    Agree with this. Bertrand is a better player and can still perform at a higher level than Targett. But recently Ryan's performance levels have slipped away and he's looked really careless in some games last season. I fully expect he would do a Dusan Tadic and come back to haunt us, but still think he needs that new challenge to be revitalised. We need to keep that conveyor belt going.
  5. Surely, because it could just have easily have been one of their Cathedrals they deserve the title in perpetuity.
  6. Looking forward to this one. Football first, down to the town for a wander round, then Jason Isbell at he Brighton Dome in the evening.
  7. I'd like to see Hojbjerg as a straight replacement for Lemina for this one. He has been playing well for the U23s recently. Think this may be game that really suits him and will need winning in the midfield, before we can take the game to them. So same team for me apart from the change above, and get the subs on (including Boufal) on 60 minutes.
  8. Callum Slattery starting to show well at this level now. Ideal Steve Davis replacement material over the next year or two.

    BIG Clubs

    Yep agreed. So why don't most people get this, there is a massive difference between Big and Great. Anyway, pleased I support a great (and also pretty big) club.

    BIG Clubs

    What makes a GREAT club ? Love the current 'Big Issue' story. Definitely a worthy cause for the Club, Community, and the Players to be involved in things like this. Congratulations to the Club who have come up with some really novel ideas over recent years, as well as keeping up with the tried and tested !
  11. Great read on so many levels, football, racing, but most of all father son relationship. Recommended to all. Have a listen to Episode 3 of this link as well http://saintsfcpod.libsyn.com
  12. I'd read that Milan was a pretty dull industrial city, but was very pleasantly surprised. The cathedral and square was great; as good as anything in this country. The shops plentiful, and pretty reasonably priced, along with the restaurants and bars - in general. Milan has that big city buzz that you don't see much outside London and Manchester over here. Whilst also being a place where families obviously still live. We stayed just a tube stop away from Doumas and at 5pm on Friday afternoon the local park was full of small family groups simply enjoying the afternoon sun. (ps. Just back from the Ethiad, which is a shed in comparison to the San Siro - although much easier to get out of afterwards).
