    god, reading the comments from Ralph is depressing, we may 2 or 3 including loans. I really am surprised that Ralph hasnt unearthed some gems from his Austrian and German footballing background
  2. Personally having all these players leave who have failed in the past may not be a bad thing. If they select well they could come out of it stronger. It depends how good judges the Cowleys are
  3. What do you think would win a fight between a lemon tart or a one legged giraffe. Now tell me there are no stupid questions lol
  4. I suspect the amount of players released tells us something about clubs finances. Im sure there are many players released every season but I cant recall as many who are so called 'names'
  5. Sorry I cant recall many defence splitting passes, slide rule balls but I may be too harsh. The goals I assume were mainly freekicks? He is foremost a defensive midfielder and tidy on the ball, but do you not feel he should press forward more and actually make more attacking play?
  6. He gave the penalty though
  7. Listening to someone who has first hand knowledge of how the academy is working now worried me quite a lot. Not very well organised and not much focus apparently.
  8. In the current market 30+ is a very good fee, but I agree with the rest you say
  9. I also wonder if this disappointment may effect JWP's performances next season and his desire may slip. I remember MLT not quite reach teh same heights after Hoddle messed his head.
  10. Personally a 30-40m fee if offered should be accepted. Get a bit of money in and get a freshness to some parts of the squad. JWP is exceptional in some areas, but he does not play a killer ball in open play and rarely gets into goal scoring positions. For someone who strikes a dead ball so well, he's pretty poor shooting a moving ball
  11. When he subbed JWP last night the way he greeted him as he went gave me then the feeling that it was a thank you and goodbye thing
  12. You can have many black boxes you want but if the person who is loading the info and reading what is spewed out is a poor judge you may as well forget it
  13. Simms may be going to Pompey!! I hope not as he has still so much potential
  14. Still think we should try for Grimes from Swansea
  15. you are going to see a natural rising of wages for workers. There is a labour shortage of people in the service industry and so companies will have to up their rates to get the staff. Generally the consumer will see a increase in prices. Inflation around the corner. I suspect we've all noticed it in the supermarket. Add to that we have the increased costs of importing goods from the EU and that will add to the upward pressure to the £ in our pocket. Low inflation keeps things manageable, I would hate to see the pain of high inflation again.
  16. Id like us to sign Grimes from Swansea. Good combative midfielder, who can score and make a pass
  17. Im surprised Eisner hasnt asked for League 1 to be renamed the World Series League
  18. I regret putting up the comparison as it has people comparing the 2 when all I wanted to do was show that Nathan was not far behind one of our better players this season.
  19. DT when you are against a player I know Im right lol
  20. As I sadi initially it wasnt putting one player against another but to show that his stats were not far away from a 'hero'. 'Pretty meaningless stats' of shooting accuracy and big chances created seem to be quite important but there you go. We are not going to change each others opinions as I believe he is a decent player for us and you dont.
  21. I was just making a comparison for this season, Redmond gets caned but Armstrong gets plaudits and there is little between them stat wise. Sorry the Bournemouth one was in the cup, I know in the Ings goal he palyed a part but cant recall what he did, come to think of it he was praised for blocking a Liverpool defender
  22. I notice the figures above, it says no goals v Bournemouth!! I thought he was part of Ings goal V Liverpool. Assists are fine if they find an in form goalscorer who scores but assists are not shown if the attempt is missed, that does skew the stats. Messi would get no assists some seasons with the profligate goalscorers we have had (Apart from Danny) Im not pitting one player against another but as with all stats you can pick and choose but whilst SA could be said to have better stats they are not a lot different ( Nathan has had 4 less games) Nathan Redmond Statistics | Premier Leag
  23. Sadly you are correct. Whatever he does they will hide back into the their shell and when a chance comes they come back in force to spit their bile. I havent seen the Diallo stuff but that just shows how dense some are. I still recall the disagreements I had with fans over MLT !!! who said he was a luxury player etc etc, that was before he really hit his vein of form,the same can be said of Crouch, fans wont have it but he was booed as he used to come on for us!! Shame there isnt the posts from Saintsforever? the former forum to this where you can see the numbskulls saying how bad he was.
  24. I also note that listening to the brilliant Totalsaints podcast ( if you dont listen you really should, and also become a Patron) one of the contributors who also does a fantastic blog, gave Nathan 1 out of 10 for the Fulham game. Totally unwarranted when he gave Minamino 3. Its fine to have an opinion, but to be so warped and unfair is very wrong. We need to be balanced with criticism and not kick one of our squad so viciously.
  25. Im still a fan of Nathan and feel he gets unjustly criticised by fans. He curled in a shot the other day, the keeper dived to save it and pushed it away, fans said he should have scored 5 minutes later an almost same shot was done by one of the fans favourites and it was oooooo unlucky. Whilst I agree he can infuriate, he still is involved in many chances we create. After the game Saturday I was listening to Solent and Blackmore said that he said Nathan didnt have a good game but not having an overlapping full back made his life difficult as his options were reduced. Anyway Im still
