    No, he’s useless at his own position so why would he be a good DM?

    My mate has just seen Valvoline at the petrol station he reckons he will help the engine of our midfield. I assume he's East European

    That'd be weird. I really like what I've seen of him, I'm surprised they want to let him go but it's not exactly a position we're desperate for cover in. Unless Cedric is going to leave because we can still sell to foreign clubs after today right?

    Wanyama and that young barca lad both of loan would be the icing on the cake for me.

    I wish. Itís been hinted to me that itís a CB that Ralphís had his eye on for a while. I will tell you one thing Ralph and Ross would rather fail in a transfer unless everything is perfect . Ralph came here with the knowledge thatís how we operate.

    I think the only advantage of Kyle Walker-Peters is that he can cover the left-back position as well, if Hassenhuttl's unsure of Vokins, but yeah, would much rather have someone new in the middle of midfield or defence.

    Ok thanks for the update mate, very much appreciated. I wonder if it's a CB fron Leipzig?

    asenhuttl
    Cedric covers left back as well. He even played vs Koln at left back as he has also done in the past for us.

    If only the last few years backed that lofty sentiment up.

    Yes, I know. But, there's still no guarantee Cedric will be here in September if we're looking to lower the wage bill and Walker-Peters' wages would likely be a lot lower than Cedric's.

    Certainly not getting my hopes up with half hour to go and we haven't even heard a name...

    That doesn't really work... as Hasenhuttl only joined in December 2018 and Wilson promoted this summer. So the opportunity for them to work as a pair overseeing transfers does not go back years.

    First bit of business done for #SaintsFC as Charlie Austin moves to West Brom for £4m

    Wilsons track record is pretty diabolical though. He'd have had genuine input in Carrillo, Hoedt, Lemina. Yes, so did Reed, but Wilson would have worked on the assumption that these were good deals as well.

    If he pulls something off now, yes, he goes up in my estimations. But based on prior history, he won't and he will continue to steal a living.

    Lemina wasn't necessarily a bad signing.

    Lots of talent, just a complete kn0b

    Trouble is that there will be a fair bit of 'hiding' behind Reed's legacy for a year or so before we can make a judgement on the current regime. I'm with you that Wilson must share some of the responsibility for the poor identifying of targets and getting deals done, but in his defence he'd be working under Reed's guidance .

    Read it again you tit. The statement holds independent of the two working together. Ralph came to the club “with knowledge of how we operate” (to paraphrase). That obviously and necessarily predated his arrival and is a reference to how the club has supposedly approached and conducted its transfers.

    Now f**k off and go back to playing your little computer game.

    wasn't the "black box" meant to identify these traits meaning we didn't end up with the kn0bheads ?

    Clearly overruled by Cortese to bring in Osvaldo, but I think many suggested Lemina was a bit of a loose cannon at the time (ie from his media presence , and the clip of him punching an opponent in the nuts).

    Sane has done his ACL it seems and so he wont be going to Bayern, weakening Man city.Klopp being coy about Coutinho, if they get him I think the pendulem has swung

    The problem with Reed is that he didn't listen to anyone I have been told several times Wilson questioned some of the signings and was basically ignored
    to the extent had Reed not gone Wilson was going to leave
