  1. I'd be tempted to get rid of FF and AMc, get a new clear no.1 and a younger keeper, up and coming from the Championship perhaps, and send Gunn out on loan. Completely freshen up that department of the team. There will hopefully, likely be at least 1 if not 2 new CBs plus RB and even CM, so they'll need to gel as a unit anyway!!
  2. crikey....he looks exciting...comfortable with both feet at that age....something Michael Owen for one never was. If we get this kid ahead of others I would regard that asa coup based on that video..
  3. Of all the recent "probably too good to stay" classed players I think Ings will stay. Sometimes in life happiness, stability, contentment are going to be more important than money, and you just need to watch him on the pitch and his interactions with other players and RH and he looks incredibly happy. Sometimes footballers just want to play football....I think we judge a few a bit too harshly sometimes, assuming its ONLY about money (probably because of our own jealousies of the amount they earn - which actually I am not). Obviously if you want to leave and money is important then it is all about money. If however the football is priority because you know you're getting a shed load regardless, then other things become more important. Of course I could be totally wrong and he goes in a months time, but if I were betting on it I reckon he will sign an extension rather than leave. As others have stated, he coould become a true Saints legend if he sees out his career here. 🤞
  4. given the financial situation I'm not too adverse to that possibility, regardless of the past. Clyne would be good experience for Valery to learn off as still think he will be good despite how he has looked in these first two games! Lallana would be less neccessary but hes still a quality player I think, better than most of ours, but the uestion is whether he would fit RH style. Lallana in, Boufal out? The reality is that this summer will be one of wheeling and dealing getting out as many as possbile primarily. 2 x CBs are the priority for me.
  5. what a fantastic idea!!! You should get in touch with club asap!!!

    Schneiderlin and Wanyama were better when they left us than he is now, and neither of them really made it elsewhere. I'd like him to stay but if he goes I doubt he will fare any better than those two I have mentioned.
  7. Its not difficult to concude ffs....ALL business regardless of level of tunrnover requires "cash flow" to operate. Football and other sports will very likely be the last business to get back to normality with no limit on customer attendance, hence they are very much at risk of administration / bankruptcy. It doesnt matter whether they have hughe assets, loads of creditors on the balance sheet, without the cash to pay the weekly bills you are fooked.
  8. The idea of having no relegation is ridiculous. Those advocating for that are obviously those at risk, and as per usual its all about the money to them as opposed to sporting integrity. My admittedly very simplistic viewpoint is either scrap the whole lot and start again - definitely not what I would like to happen or think should do - or complete the season in anyway possible over however long it takes. Of course there then comes the issues with contracts. I think what the governing bodies and players need to agree is that because there has been this pause in their work (ignore any argument about theyve still been "working" by training at home nonesense) that when football starts again in each country, then everyones contracts (where neccesary) are automatically extended by the time frame where there has been no football or until the seaosn in their country ends (whichever is sooner). From the point the season actually ends the transfer window is open and extended beyond whatever original closing date was planeed by the time "lost" from the date it was due to open until the date the season restarts to finish. Then once timescales are known about restart and then probable finish of this season, decisions can be made for the 2020/21 season and what happens. I doubt much would need to change other than probably a few more midweek games or dropping the League Cup for one year whichseems to be the least worst option. Seems straight forward to me....but bound to have missed something!!!
  9. This is fantastic, well done!! Thank you!!
  10. In the summer I am hoping for this; OUT Forster Elyounousi Lamina Hoedt Vestergaard Carrillo Boufal NEW CONTRACTS PEH - 3 years LONG - 1 year, but probably need to be with an option for a 2nd year. IN 2 X CBs 1 x DCM 2 x AM/Winger Added to a squad of McCarthy Gunn Bertrand Vokins KWP Valery Bednarek Stephens Romeu JWP PEH Redmond Djenepo Ings Adams Long Obefemi So the question is can we raise enough mo ey from the 7 sales (if we can even do them!!) to buy 5 good players!! It's going to be interesting!!
  11. At the recent fans event which is on YouTube to view, Ralph said that for all intents and purposes he has a "group of assistant coaches" with what sounded like no hierarchial structure. He made the point that he has people doing the roles they need to do. Sounds very good, and by recent times is working very well. Titles are for egos. What people do and the effect ehy have is what matters. The effect is extremely positive right now. I get why people worry about RH leaving given our recent history but I got the impression from that same evetn that he is very happy here and willbe here for a good while. Time will tell of course but real coaches are motivated by development and progress, not by money and status.
  12. I cant believe the way many fans are just so emotionally reactive to what is in fact just 45 minutes where we almost 3-0. The 45minjtes beforehand we won 2-0. Both halves could actually have been any score. Our team is flourishing and full of confidence. Tha k god they are professionals and understand these things unlike the majority of fans who I suspect have never played a sport to any level whatsoever!! Right...bring on Palace....
