    #SaintsFC Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl confirms that Kyle Walker-Peters will NOT be in the squad at Anfield. Too early for him.

    On Cedric leaving, Hasenhuettl says he’s happy to let him go in the circumstances

    RH not expecting to bring anyone else in this window
    Might as well close this thread,save a day of waste.

    Less high profile big money flops than us, still here on massive wages. Players like lemina, Forster, Elyounoussi, hoedt are on higher wages likely than most people in Burnleys team and we can barely give them away. When people discuss netspend they rarely consider the wage bill which is the actual killer. consider we pay the 4 previously mentioned about 14m a year between them that's where our money goes.

    Couldn't be a more frustrating situation. Finally we have a manager who can take us places but an owner who wants to sit tight.

    Can we now start the who are we selling in the summer thread.
    I do worry more about us for next season,the dross will still be here and we will surely sell anyone who’s worth a few bob. Then when we finally manage do last minute loans to get rid of the usual suspects we are left with what.

    Very good signing. A player we should have pursued

    That depends on whether or not KWP turns out to be better than Cedric.

    We needed cover and we finish with the same number(ralph suggested we needed 2). For that reason we are not stronger - FACT.

    If KWP plays well and the Cedric money puts us in a better position to strengthen properly in the summer then it's been a good window. It's quite the gamble though.

    This. Disappointing window but it’s barely weaker. The question is whether we’d have been out signing players had we still been in the relegation zone? The run of form seems to have changed the minds of the board as to our need for players. Maybe the £35 million the media quoted was the fund we had to fight off relegation but they’ve decided to keep it until Summer. Maybe wishful thinking, but we’ll find out come the summer.

    Yeah, exactly this. Since we're pretty much safe I'd much rather spend that money in the summer.

    Yeah I always assumed that 35m was gambling next year's tv money/parachute payment.

    Who thinks Ralph will quit the end of the season, even if we stay up! This has got to have been the last straw for him, surely.

    I dont think he will quit as such. I think his restraint from taking another job will be a solid as a soggy biscuit.

    I don't see him quitting. We're raising his profile as he hoped.
    Think odds are he will be here at start of next season

    There's not really a reason for him to quit now. One more season I reckon and if he can get us to mid table that's probably his lot.

    Not signing a second full-back in January is the last straw?

    Moaning about not having money seems fairly pointless. We all know the money we've wasted and we're extremely limited until we shift players.

    We have 6 or 7 players not even in our squad who not only cost us a lot, but are on huge wages. Shift them all and we have room to do business again.

    Nope, can't see it, the reason being is that he is not a bed wetting ninny like the majority on this thread.

    Whilst the window hasn't blown anyones socks off, its been a sensible approach, to a well managed club who are still paying the price for mistakes in previous windows. This mess will not be sorted out overnight, we still have a multitude of high earners contracted to us, loaned out for which we are still paying a huge part of their salaries, wake up people!

    The money wasted has only been money we’ve earned from sales, why do we have no money when we’ve made over £70m profit the last two years? We are meant to be a well run, self sustainable club yet we don’t seem to be able to survive without selling players.

    How can we be a well managed club when we can’t bring in any new players without selling any despite being the only club club in the division to make a profit from transfers? Can we please stop this we are well run bo11ocks. We obviously aren’t, or at least haven’t been.

    Is there another club with 4 of its top 10 record transfers on loan. Another 3 regularly on the bench. That leaves 2 sold and only Danny ings who we bought this season in the regular starting xi

    Just shut up and repeat the mantra mate

    We are a well run club
    We are a well run club

    We have been well run but made awful transfer decisions. If those transfers had come off they'd be no whingeing. Doing what people on here are calling for would make us badly run. We need to clear out the ****e and rebuild. It's not complicated.

    We’ve made multiple failures in transfers, which means aren’t well run then.

    Wrong. Making transfer decisions that haven't worked us does not alter the fact that we're well run strategically and financially. As a business the club works. Throwing money around whilst being stuck with a load of ****e players would be stupid.

    We've done that already, which would suggest we're badly run.

    We're financially viable and sustainable. That, at its simplest, is a well run football business. If it isn't, tell me your definition of a well run football business.

    If your strategy is to stay up spending as little as possible then we’ve got it nailed.

    Some people might argue that’s spending tens of millions on a poor recruitment policy over and over again might make us badly run and strategically flawed but this can’t be true because I’m just going to pretend that we’re well run.

    We are stuffed at the moment and until the new structure is in place Croker , new recruitment guy and we know what division we are in 36 points quoted don’t think contracts will be discussed although I would bet some have been already.
    I don’t see us coming out of this well unless we take a big loss on Forster, Mo,Carillo and Hoedt

    So answer the question what are they meant to do?
    We are in the crap due to the way it was run - new people are going to try and improve that do you think supporting them is the way ?
    Wilson/Krueger and Reed caused this mess along with Hunter the shambles will take years to fix.
