Always surprised that he got stuck at Spurs, could have went onto a higher level.

After Mark Wright, he was the best CB I saw in a saints shirt until VVD. Looked destined for big things to me. If that tweet is correct and he's on £1m a month, that probably explains why he's stayed at Spurs though.

It's two massive fingers up at Jose Mourinho as well. Shows him up as the dated manager he really is, just looking for enemy's at every club he goes into. Ali was the most recent one at spurs. Not sure why he does that.

I wonder who it will be at Roma?

Although the Shaw of today is not the Shaw of a couple of years ago. Maybe it was Mourinho’s treatment of him that helped to make him the player he is today? Who knows?

Maybe, but he was still decent under Van Gal to be fair. He didn't really do anything wrong but Mourinho loved to pick on him, it was quite weird. He still does pick on him as well. I don't know if Shaw slept with his wife or something, it feels personal rather than professional.

But it's what Jose does. Alienates people at every single club he goes at.

Jose Fonte captained Jeremy Pied's Lille to the French equivalent of the Community Shield tonight. They just play their version in Israel. A 1-0 win over Pochettino's PSG. But, don't worry, this is one of the two trophies Pochettino has won in his managerial career. Diallo's brother was playing left-back for PSG too, so plenty of Saints links within the match.

Captain Maya Yoshida scored the winner to seal victory against New Zealand and will face Spain next  in Olympic 

Pleased for him, hope they go on to win it.

Bertrand starting at Wembley

Early start and no doubt new club bounce, but looks like a different player. Seems to have found those legs we thought he’d lost.

Seems to have an energy that was missing for us at the end...

Suppose it happens, players need a change of scenery sometimes.

Yep,if it wasn't for the charity money, it would be pointless

You’d surely enjoy it and can buy your half and half scarf and paint your face for a great day out. Tell the grandkids about the day and all your memories

Not for me or a lot of other people, https://shewore.com/2017/08/05/is-the-community-shield-a-real-trophy/ 

It's a good spectacle and one I'd loved Saints to be in. But its just a pre season charity match.

Leicester celebrated a bit too hard yesterday, thinking that way probably makes me sound miserable.

Re Bertrand - There is no doubting he served us well over the years but part of me thinks for the past couple of seasons he was "phoning in" his performance each week. He definitely looked "half arsed" towards the end. We needed to get rid with some fresh legs down the left (Perraud hopefully will supply that)

Having watched RB for for 70 mins yesterday, I didn't see anything different from his last few months with us. 

Watch him slip down to bit part player. I'm happy with the decision.

Leicester fans seem impressed and thinks he can take a set-piece.

I find it funny cos his set-pieces last season more often than not led to an opposition counter-attack

Missed this at the weekend, but Lemina's debut at Nice ended with them winning 4-0 against Jose Fonte's champions Lille. 

Pretty good start at his new club. Once Schneiderlin is fit it will be interesting to see them link up in a Saints defectors midfield.

As the Brandon Williams rumour circulated on here for so long this summer, and the fan base was truly split on him be a potential legend or a massive waste of money, I feel he's earnt his place on the defectors thread. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does at Norwich. My guess right now, this season will be a steep learning curve for him ending in relegation.

Sorry to back track 

But I would delighted to see Saints in the Charity Shield especially given the qualification criteria

Hoedt showing off his skills for Anderlecht tonight. Pathetic defending for Vitesse's 3rd goal. Loses the ball, doesn't bother tracking back. How Lazio conned Reed & Co. into believing he could play in the PL is beyond me.

Tall Dutch bloke who played CB and could hit an impressive pass out of defence (according to Youtube). Same boxes ticked as VVD. Obviously a surefire winner.

Les was perfectly relaxed about it.

Well it's not an apple is it?

It's not an FA Cup or Premier League title but it's a hell of a lot better than a kick in the teeth. Picking up silverware (of whatever kind) is the kind of thing ex-footballers remember when they're retired. Theo's 2 Community Shield medals look pretty nice in his trophy cabinet anyway.

Oh and yes you're right! Greedy agents, simulation, FIFA and bribery aren't what's wrong with modern football. No no, it's people thinking a trophy is a trophy that's really sticking the boot into our beautiful game.
