    He's a class player that sits at a good level for the team and squad. Add to that the fact that you can wait decades to find players with his level of passion for the club, and what exactly is there to not like?
  2. I find a lot of that article to be pretty much rubbish tbh. The saints side is "long in the tooth" - its one of the youngest sides in the league.... James Ward Prowse's last England cap came 3 years ago? No... Saints are perennial relegation candidates? - We've finished top 8 more than we've been in a relegation crap. The Times really has let its standards drop.
  3. It has to remain as 3. Teams with less funding didn't build squads over the summer planning to have an additional 2 quality substitutes to field. Its pure movement of the goalposts from the top clubs. Yet another attempt to unlevel the premier league playing field.
  4. I will wait to hear from Turkish myself. Far higher chance of it happening if it comes from him 🙂
  5. IMO, there is no chance we will play redmond up top over Walcott. This screams Adams and Walcott as a front 2 for me. And i'd fancy that to cause all kinds of problems to be honest. With Adams being a general bully and nusisance, redmond pulling players out wide, and Theo ready to run onto any through balls, i fancy him to be very dangerous. Also, Redmond is the most wasteful player i've seen at Saints for a long long time. I know he can be great at times and he does well to get himself into the final ball positions.... but my god you'd bet on him to fluff the final product up 9 times out
  6. I know Tadic and Ings are shite at penalties - but surely they weren't that bad!?!?!?!
  7. The number of our fans who've written him off over the years 🤣
  8. Exactly this imo. The club have budgeted for it for the season. So we aren't suddenly making an unexpected £3m a month loss with no way to afford it.
  9. An unbudgeted £3m loss per month makes no sense and would be very alarming. I also doubt it is something we would leak during takeover talks. Hence querying it rather than taking it as a "face value" gospel truth. If saints are actually making an unbudgeted loss of £3M per month specifically due to something that was foreseeable this season (and obviously would have been budgeted for) then something has gone very wrong. Given our summer transfer activity, i find that outcome to be highly unlikely - hence calling it a speculative take on what was said and querying it. As Vectis says,
  10. I don't know who Toby Steele is, but this seems highly speculative take, and to describe it as a loss is disingenuous as well. We have lost a portion of our income this season because there are no gate receipts and that can be estimated for sure. But equally, the club knew that was coming and may well have restructured the business to accommodate it - Removing significant sums from the wage bill over the transfer window being a significant example. To put it another way. outright calling it a loss implies the club sanctioned our summer transfer window spend on the assumption we'd have ful
  11. That is all there is to it really - hard for some to understand though.
  12. Basically, once again Liverpool have fooked us over...
  13. Imagine Redmond and Walcott will play on the wings. We don't have any other obvious choices with Armstrong and Djenpo out. Its that or we have smallbone starting in the AMR spot? Or He plays central and JWP plays AMR? Or Ralph really pushes the boat out and puts Valery as AMR?
  14. So.... Ay suggestions for good streaming sites these days? 😆
  15. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8631227/15m-China-shirt-crisis-hits-Southampton-main-sponsor-LD-Sports-set-pull-plug-deal.html I can't say i'm surprised by this. What a car crash of a sponsor from start to finish! Does this mean we can get shirts without a sponsor on for the coming season? Or, failing that, we can get a different sponsor on the shirt in time? Assume this is political as well given its impacting several clubs. On that note, it is an interesting one to be honest, the Chinese are withholding the TV money funds and calling the league's bluff
