Guly nets nine minute hat-trick as Saints romp to 8-0 win

Daily Echo: Guly do Prado Guly do Prado

Guly do Prado scored a nine minute hat-trick as Saints handed out a pre-season thumping to Spanish minnows Palamos.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men were in irrepressible form and found their opponents no match for their Premier League quality as they romped to an 8-0 win.

Pochettino made nine changes at half time and would have been delighted that both teams were so dominant.

Adam Lallana opened the scoring on 11 minutes with Jason Puncheon adding another three minutes later before Morgan Schneiderlin made it 3-0 at half time.

The second half side were not to be outdone though with Do Prado leading the way in impressive fashion.

Jay Rodriguez made it 4-0 from the penalty spot on the hour mark before the Brazilian started his scoring spree, completing his hat-trick in the space of just nine minutes.

Luke Shaw rounded off the scoring with five minutes remaining.

Saints first half: Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Fox, Cork, Schneiderlin, Lallana, Isgrove, Puncheon, Lambert.

Saints second half: Gazzaniga, Clyne, Fonte (Stephens 66), Hooiveld, Shaw, Wanyama, Schneiderlin (Isgrove 66, Turnbull 82), S Davis, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Rodriguez.

That's just typical of Guly. We should have won that game 10-0 and he should have had 5. I definitely blame Guly!

By all accounts fantastic displays first and second half, but to be fair the opposition would be akin to playing the skates...i.e extremely cr@p! Much harder opposition in Austria to come but a great start, imagine the scenario if Banega joins? UTMS!!!!

I can see Mauricio's faith in Guly paying off big time this season as he shows his class, becomes a Saints legend and makes all the naysayers eat their words and their boos.

With the brilliant new shirt (only £50 but worth £200) and Guly's name on the back I am really going to look the business in the Kingsland.

Pure gold - just like my terrific new shirt badge.

I'd have been disappointed, had we scored fewer than 8, TBH.

I've witnessed a game between two Spanish teams, of this level, and it is no better than non league football in the UK, and not the top leagues either.

As said above, you can only beat what is put in front of you and we did.

The real work and first real test of progress comes, when we get to Austria.

Our first in the new shirt
All you Guly haters
Your gonna be eating dirt

When you see him playing
Alongside all the rest
The time will come for you to see
That Guly is the best

Will he be a starter
Or be an impact sub
We'll play our new formation wth Guly at the hub

it is a funny post, although Lambert hasn't scored many in recent games. Shows why we need a new striker to A) relieve pressure b) be another avenue for goals as Lambert does go through spells where he doesn't score. It is the only aspect of his game that I feel he could improve on which is consistency

No you clearly weren't wasting your time - and in my opinion you should relax and don't get so frustrated and angry when people criticise your beloved club which in your eyes can do no wrong. I always go to the OS first as when we played Llagostera the OS had a live feed on the site and a match report very soon after the game so I was puzzled the same didn't happen today. As I don't really use Twitter I had no idea they were focussing on that today. But fair play if the club were using Twitter.

nice to see us get a few goals today, yes it was only a training game against a side that we should expect to beat but scoring goals can become a `habit` for players so its good to see. the real test starts in Austria where we play some quality opposition, not too worried if we lose the games as MP will be looking at other things anyway.

MP may get much more out of him,,,, but not even the mighty Guly will read too much into 3 goals against allotment farmers and sheep herders. I do have a feeling we will see more of our lanky and talented friend this coming season tho. Let the Guru bashing begin ::::::::::::
Sorry , I cannot see the relevance of your reply , where did "wrong as you put it" appear in my comment ......... And Guly was playing along all of our other players and happened to be the one who got a hat-trick in 9 minutes , my comment was about my theory (not fact) that 3 consecutive managers probably (certainly) know twice as much as any of us .
loads of people saw Guly play badly under Nigel, coming on late , too cold, not enough time to get into games... He was not necessarily "wrong" or "right" about Guly, but many saw him not getting the best out of him... You state the obvious in one sense, professional managers know more than "any of us" ,, except obviously mark Hughes, and about 50 others who have been sacked for not spotting the obvious that 1000s of fans already knew. Its called "wood for the trees" syndrome. Guly has been a "marmite" player true, but those that booed him are just ignorant about the game. He often looked like he needed better service and players around him and if he continues to look like that this season, then he may well just be one of those "luxury" players.... I think not.... I think he will play a bigger role this season....

We have been saying it for a long time, they don't appear to appreciate our thirst for anything Saints, instant results from the other teams, U18's and U21's these are important to me. Quicker on line updates are needed on all games, even friendlies, I hate twitter because for some reason people feel the need to continuously retweet old news which clogs the site up with dross, what is that all about? If it is the quickest way to get the news I have to tolerate it.

With the brilliant new shirt (only £50 but worth £200) and Guly's name on the back I am really going to look the business in the Kingsland.

Pure gold - just like my terrific new shirt badge.
Don't forget the additional advantage offered by the new shirt, a spare hankie on each sleeve!

Was I wasting my time putting updates on the other thread? If I can get updates, anyone can, it's not rocket science.
No you clearly weren't wasting your time - and in my opinion you should relax and don't get so frustrated and angry when people criticise your beloved club which in your eyes can do no wrong. I always go to the OS first as when we played Llagostera the OS had a live feed on the site and a match report very soon after the game so I was puzzled the same didn't happen today. As I don't really use Twitter I had no idea they were focussing on that today. But fair play if the club were using Twitter.
I suspect if the opposition had been more important there would have been coverage, I still feel the PR department are out of touch when it comes to informing us on the happenings at St. Marys, it is one of few areas where I am not comfortable with our progress to higher and better things, they need us on board, not a remote nuisance to be tolerated coz they cough up some loot.

With the brilliant new shirt (only £50 but worth £200) and Guly's name on the back I am really going to look the business in the Kingsland.

Pure gold - just like my terrific new shirt badge.
Don't forget the additional advantage offered by the new shirt, a spare hankie on each sleeve!
Don't knock the shirts, two games two wins, that's 100% success rate.

Guly is a skilful player, no doubt about it, but its his total game which is the problem. It's no good battling hard to win the ball if all you are going to do is pass it straight back to the opposition. Too many times he has done this and we won't get away with it in the PL. Sort that problem out and he can add to the squad. Otherwise he is a liability.

As for 8-nil, lower league sides may be easier and know that they are likely to get beat, but not many of them let a team put 8 past them. Well done to the two sides in each half. Glad you're taking the preparation seriously.

I saw two of his games for cesena and he was a different player... he had less responsibility to wall-pass, give and go and play with his back to goal and more opportunity to pull off players on wide runs and create havoc. Part of the problem was the hit-n-rush off div1/champ but also the general pace of the game is much different. I still think he can be an asset for us and with my new bestest mate Wanyama steaming up the middle , maybe MP will use Guly in a role he was more suited to back in his Cesena days....

Seedhouse the Unrepentant says...

A great start to the warm up to the new campaign. I'd still like to see one more signing, someone who brings goals from the middle, or wide or up top. Think that would strengthen us more than any other position might. Looking back on great teams they had lots of players getting on the score sheet as opposed to good teams that relied too much on one or two players scoring.

Although obviously tonight they all had a go!

feet on the ground I recall a bit of advice from Pards in the early days.. No point in lining up easy games to thrash hapless opposition.. you really learn nothing from that sort of game.
This is a 4th div outfit of part timers but the lads had fun apparently played at decent pace and better oppos are on the way.. all good in my book.

Laugh though as our U21s just beat Toons 2-0

Also laugh as the os has a pic of a smiling happy looking Gaston arriving at training camp in Spain.

Laugh though as our U21s just beat Toons 2-0 Also laugh as the os has a pic of a smiling happy looking Gaston arriving at training camp in Spain. COYR Tirau Dan

I know Spanish football well after 12 years in the country, Palamos is in Catalonia, boasts a population of 15,000. What is the point in friendlies like this. Pick 11 blokes in a park and you'll get the same level of competition. Do Prado is irrelevant, he will play no part in the future of the club. Does anybody know a right back by the way.

Guly is an enigma. Forget the goals in this game. Wasn't it in the championship he scored like 10 goals in the early part of the season? Then didn't he get injured or something? and everything has gone wrong since.
Never understood the nastiness towards Guly, from a section of fans, who turn on a player when what he needs is for them to get behind him.
I agree he is frustrating at times and there are times when he has been brilliant.
Just as we have had fans on here castigating Chelsea fans for their treatment of Benitez, some of those fans sit on the terraces and do the same to Guly and Fox. Its like scoring an own goal, cos you destroy a player's confidence.
Sure we all write on here and have our moans and groans about players but when Saturday comes and those players step on the pitch we should back them 100%.

No I am not predicting him to be a revelation this season but he is still a good player to have in the squad.
The player deserves a little more respect than he gets. Whilst some treat him as a joke, his ten goals are part of the reason we are in the premiership.
Now you can blame that on Guly

I'm looking forward to being better this year, because last year I made some mistakes so I apologise to everyone.

Interesting rumours that contact has been made re Banega again. Then Banega is quoted :

“I am grateful that I have had so much affection, so many chances and it is time to return it in style on the pitch,” Banega told VCFPlay, his club's official TV channel.

“I am proud to be a part of Valencia. I have spent a while here, I know the place very well and it really leaves a mark on you.

“There’s a style, it marks you for life. You become one of them.

“I face this season with the same enthusiasm and ambition as previous ones. I am proud to be one of the oldest here at 25.

“With the squad that we have here, we deserve to win a title.”

He doesn't actually say he is staying but, its close to it. Would love him to come to Saints but looking unlikely. I know people say we have enough midfielders but this guy can play upfront or attacking midfield too. He is genuine quality and would suit the way Poch wants us to play.

If you were claiming his form's been poor since he was moved from being a striker (about the time his goalscoring stopped) it might make sense. But "2nd worse player EVER" in 45 years? Barmy.

The new shirt is selling worse than last year's

NC mishandled the Adidas negotiations

Saints have a contract that is unique in the whole Premier League for the restrictions it places on players

And apparently it's up to everyone else to disprove his made up "facts"

Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'!

If you were claiming his form's been poor since he was moved from being a striker (about the time his goalscoring stopped) it might make sense. But "2nd worse player EVER" in 45 years? Barmy.
I am a fan of Guly but you are a bit of a kn0b if you think he scored 11 goals last season !?
You're right - wrong seasons in the list. should have been 10/11 and 11/12.

Far be it from me to give advice, and you are not obliged to take any, Guru. I always try to either substantiate or qualify what I post as these comments are permanent and if I can't, I don't. If it is too involved a process to list, then a source or link often suffices. Whilst sometimes I may be blunt, I am always respecful as we are all Saints fans here and have a common interest. (The exception being TB of course as in all this time I have not read a single solitary "supportive" comment from him).
For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.

Like the first warm-up match, we can't read too much into the score or the opposition - neither matter much right now.

However, well done Guly; that has to be a confidence booster. He had a tough time last year, some of it self inflicted, but it would be great for everyone (even his doubters) if he turned in some top-drawer performances next season.

In terms of the match, what interests me more than the score is the 4 young players who got a run out - Chambers, Isgrove, Stephens and Turnbull. It's all good experience and part of their development.

Meanwhile, does anyone know why Mayuka was missing? niggle? Injury?

Here's a bit of Daily Echo reporting :) from football-italia.net

"Protests continue at Roma’s pre-season training, warning the team ‘will not go unpunished’ and calling Pablo Daniel Osvaldo “a coward.”

The Giallorossi camp at Riscone di Brunico has been beset by problems, as ultras repeatedly staged protests and held up insulting banners.

Today there were two particularly vicious banners targeted at the team and in particular at unsettled striker Osvaldo.

‘Osvaldo is a coward,’ read one, while the other referred to the Coppa Italia Final defeat to Lazio in May. ‘26-5-13: Nothing will go unpunished.”

Hmmm.... He's going to want to leave i'm sure but, do we want someone who's not got any other options??

Well, I think Guly always plays well for someone carrying so many overweight, sweating, anal, gobshite experts on his back most games. We would not have got promoted without his input, goals and versatility(work it out-don't rely on me to qualify this with the propagandist word 'Fact').
Presume only the clear-sighted 'loyals' are in Spain.
Looking forward to watching and cheering all my team in the RED (and white) kit for hire soon.

Always consider the source: Guly was purchased cheaply and easily from Cesena, a Serie B outfit who happened to get promoted to the Serie A that season, with Guly playing very much a bit part. Cesena went back to Serie B. Saints moved on and up, and really should have helped Guly find his level...go to Reading, or stay here on the bench at best. We need to sign Osvaldo to score the goals that move us up the Prem.

Agreed top notch comment.

A few choice words there borrowed from Macbeth unless I'm mistaken ie Lady Macbeth in Act 2 Scene 2:

"Hark! I hear a knocking at the south entry. Retire to your chamber thou overweight, sweating, anal ,gobshite. A little water will clean you of your deed."

Next time they come to stay, I think I'll incorporate that into a story for my sister's grandkids. "Mr Mole and the overweight, sweating, anal, gobshite."

Its the humour that makes this forum interesting Os. Confucious would have to stop posting for a start. The trouble is that these comments are like texts and can easily be misread. Smileys may help but even that is dependant on the readers interpretation. I posted a quip the other day to someone about happy clappers and put lol after it and he still took it seriously!
It would be extemely boring without the humour... how many times have I read .. I think we need cover for the right back, a centre back, an attacking midfielder and a striker.... jeez, so does everyone! So keep the humour in the front seat please.

Aww, poor Guru, started being sensible and posting like a normal humanoid but it seems he's still upset about people asking him to back up the mad statements he makes, like

The new shirt is selling worse than last year's

NC mishandled the Adidas negotiations

Saints have a contract that is unique in the whole Premier League for the restrictions it places on players

And apparently it's up to everyone else to disprove his made up "facts"

Keep squealing like a pig, boy!
knew that would smoke out the stick !! LOL !! that was like fishing in a paddling pool full of fish !! LOL !! you just can't help yourself can you , your newest most bestest way of inflating your ego !! enjoy.....

well we know roma want shot of him so doing a deal with them shouldn't be a problem, so I guess its up to Osvaldo himself.
is he the right type of player for us? he has had some `attitude` problems at roma in the past, would he bring that attitude here or would MP know how to handle him.
again this could just be paper talk
Here's a bit of Daily Echo reporting :) from football-italia.net

"Protests continue at Roma’s pre-season training, warning the team ‘will not go unpunished’ and calling Pablo Daniel Osvaldo “a coward.”

The Giallorossi camp at Riscone di Brunico has been beset by problems, as ultras repeatedly staged protests and held up insulting banners.

Today there were two particularly vicious banners targeted at the team and in particular at unsettled striker Osvaldo.

‘Osvaldo is a coward,’ read one, while the other referred to the Coppa Italia Final defeat to Lazio in May. ‘26-5-13: Nothing will go unpunished.”

Hmmm.... He's going to want to leave i'm sure but, do we want someone who's not got any other options??
I tried researching this lad, he seems to have a bit of an ego problem, would his skills outweigh his attitude, could we educate him? Is he worth the hassle? NC will decide I guess.

Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'!

Far be it from me to give advice, and you are not obliged to take any, Guru. I always try to either substantiate or qualify what I post as these comments are permanent and if I can't, I don't. If it is too involved a process to list, then a source or link often suffices. Whilst sometimes I may be blunt, I am always respecful as we are all Saints fans here and have a common interest. (The exception being TB of course as in all this time I have not read a single solitary "supportive" comment from him).
For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.

The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.

I am not actually against the policy of a Player having to get Permission from the Club to represent them, as in the past some players have misbehaved and brought the Club into disrepute. I have no doubt if a Player asked if he could represent the Club, the answer would be either yes with our blessing, or no, please do not as we have a good reason why you should not. Is that unreasonable?

You can get 66/1 from BetVictor or a miserly 40/1 from Skybet if you think he might be the one. Gerardo Martino ranges from 8/11, 5/4, 13/8 or 11/10 favourite, and I have never heard of him.

again I disagree with this statement because 2 kids teams that I have friends at had players at their presentation evenings at the end of last season. I don't know what happened to you and in your situation but I was involved in kids league footy for several years until recently, I still know and talk to people involved though, and every time the club was asked if a player could do a presentation evening the answer was always yes.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.


STID
The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
again I disagree with this statement because 2 kids teams that I have friends at had players at their presentation evenings at the end of last season. I don't know what happened to you and in your situation but I was involved in kids league footy for several years until recently, I still know and talk to people involved though, and every time the club was asked if a player could do a presentation evening the answer was always yes.
you may disagree but its a fact. They may well have had players at their events.... but that had to be sanctioned through "proper channels". The fact remains in other clubs the club does "not need to be asked" if the player is on their own time and is not representing the club. At most other clubs the only time the club "has to be asked" is if its during the playing season and the time slot(s) involved fall under what some clubs refer to as "controlled time" , ie time during the season when players agree to certain work/rest patterns, food intake etc etc etc.

its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.

London bookies had us to be relegated last year, they aren't always correct, but they are very often right. You don't see many poor bookies, but they do make poor judgements at time when they haven't got all the details they need to make their assessment of the odds.

The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .
its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.
I take your point .
its not something I care about... I wished I had never mentioned it tbo,,, SFCs t&cs are obviously good enough for Love-will-tear-us-ap

It would be extemely boring without the humour... how many times have I read .. I think we need cover for the right back, a centre back, an attacking midfielder and a striker.... jeez, so does everyone! So keep the humour in the front seat please.

Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'!

Far be it from me to give advice, and you are not obliged to take any, Guru. I always try to either substantiate or qualify what I post as these comments are permanent and if I can't, I don't. If it is too involved a process to list, then a source or link often suffices. Whilst sometimes I may be blunt, I am always respecful as we are all Saints fans here and have a common interest. (The exception being TB of course as in all this time I have not read a single solitary "supportive" comment from him).
For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.


STID
The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .
its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.
I take your point .
I accept the point too, if a Player signs for us, despite some personal restrictions, it means they have bought into the dream, I have no time for a player if his ego is bigger than the Club, Southampton is the name, no room for other outside Commercial perks which could interfere. IN MY OPINION. :o | that's my serious face.

nothing exciting. Personal friend of a Saints player arranged for him to attend a community event. It was out of season and in his own time. SFC prevented it from happening. EOS.
Just name the player and the organisation then, not a secret surely?
Bournemouth 0 Real 4 Ronaldo 2 Khedira and Higuain, at least the stars have shown up and played, so have Real Madrid!
Name them for what purpose ? London bookie yesterday has taken "not an insignificant" amount on Bale being a Man United player by start of the season.
Name the Player so that I can investigate why it all went wrong, I need the other details to verify the story.
LOL... you have been watching too much "Murder-she-wrote"..


.
Can't answer the question eh? Anyway real news is that Gonzalo Higuain may be playing his last game for Real Madrid tonight, Napoli have tabled a £30m bid for him. Hope ISP problems don't get in the way.
just texted my buddy in Meta... he reckons Napoli won't pay the asking price for Gonzalo.... he will either stay put or go somewhere else for stupid money.... but then again what would he know....LOL....

nothing exciting. Personal friend of a Saints player arranged for him to attend a community event. It was out of season and in his own time. SFC prevented it from happening. EOS.
Just name the player and the organisation then, not a secret surely?
Bournemouth 0 Real 4 Ronaldo 2 Khedira and Higuain, at least the stars have shown up and played, so have Real Madrid!
Name them for what purpose ? London bookie yesterday has taken "not an insignificant" amount on Bale being a Man United player by start of the season.
Name the Player so that I can investigate why it all went wrong, I need the other details to verify the story.
LOL... you have been watching too much "Murder-she-wrote"..



.
Can't answer the question eh? Anyway real news is that Gonzalo Higuain may be playing his last game for Real Madrid tonight, Napoli have tabled a £30m bid for him. Hope ISP problems don't get in the way.
just texted my buddy in Meta... he reckons Napoli won't pay the asking price for Gonzalo.... he will either stay put or go somewhere else for stupid money.... but then again what would he know....LOL....
Your buddy could be right Arsenal have been asked to up their bid to £35m, big money, is he that good?

Its the humour that makes this forum interesting Os. Confucious would have to stop posting for a start. The trouble is that these comments are like texts and can easily be misread. Smileys may help but even that is dependant on the readers interpretation. I posted a quip the other day to someone about happy clappers and put lol after it and he still took it seriously!
It would be extemely boring without the humour... how many times have I read .. I think we need cover for the right back, a centre back, an attacking midfielder and a striker.... jeez, so does everyone! So keep the humour in the front seat please.

STID
the humour and the ever lasting quest for "proof".... ;0)
Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'!

:-)

STID
or by the fact that its impossible to prove many things in type.
Far be it from me to give advice, and you are not obliged to take any, Guru. I always try to either substantiate or qualify what I post as these comments are permanent and if I can't, I don't. If it is too involved a process to list, then a source or link often suffices. Whilst sometimes I may be blunt, I am always respecful as we are all Saints fans here and have a common interest. (The exception being TB of course as in all this time I have not read a single solitary "supportive" comment from him).
For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.


STID
The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .
its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.
I take your point .
its not something I care about... I wished I had never mentioned it tbo,,, SFCs t&cs are obviously good enough for Love-will-tear-us-ap




art and VW.... True it was a pain-in-the-ar5e to have a commitment broken after an agreement was made but it was not the end of the world... anyway.... back to shirts.... I have a squashed bug mark on my favourite work shirt... what is the best product for using as a pre-soak to rid me of this ?
We also wished you had never mentioned it, promise you won't do it again unless it appears on the OS, and we will let you off.
"WE" !?!? you really do have some issues... LOL.... the dreaded split personality !! or have you promoted yourself to spokesperson of your forum gang ??
OK pedant I wish! There may be others.
Gaston's agent has the same problem... he spoke to an Italian news agency this weekend about Inter's interest and said "we think" the slubs have spoken.... when pressed he admitted he mean't he thought and that he had not actually spoken to either Saints or Inter.... so , that story just sounds to me the agent is maybe looking to put a pool in and needs a few quid...

No, no, no. Guru, Firstly, I'll thank you not to suggest that I'm a fuckn idiot as the original question came from me. I understand perfectly and it is you who have misunderstood. I didnt ask you about personal time of players or contract differences between Saints and Newcastle. I asked you SPECIFICALLY about IPRs which you state and have done again this evening, are big issues for players. IPR's have nothing to do with personal time and as I said before, having investigated this issue, cannot find one single example of a 'playing' footballer either having, requiring, or needing Intellectual Property Rights. It certainly isn't a major issue and is infact extremely rare if not non-existent.

For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

STID
The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .
its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.
I take your point .
its not something I care about... I wished I had never mentioned it tbo,,, SFCs t&cs are obviously good enough for Love-will-tear-us-ap



art and VW.... True it was a pain-in-the-ar5e to have a commitment broken after an agreement was made but it was not the end of the world... anyway.... back to shirts.... I have a squashed bug mark on my favourite work shirt... what is the best product for using as a pre-soak to rid me of this ?

I am bored with this. There is no need for anyone to prove themselves right or anyone else to prove others wrong wrong. It just becomes a 'p!ssing contest. I can't even be bothered to read all the threads anymore. If BG want to tells us he knows things that is up to him. If people chose to disbelieve him then that is fine.

I asked you SPECIFICALLY about IPRs which you state and have done again this evening, are big issues for players. IPR's have nothing to do with personal time and as I said before, having investigated this issue, cannot find one single example of a 'playing' footballer either having, requiring, or needing Intellectual Property Rights. It certainly isn't a major issue and is infact extremely rare if not non-existent.

nothing exciting. Personal friend of a Saints player arranged for him to attend a community event. It was out of season and in his own time. SFC prevented it from happening. EOS.
Just name the player and the organisation then, not a secret surely?
Bournemouth 0 Real 4 Ronaldo 2 Khedira and Higuain, at least the stars have shown up and played, so have Real Madrid!

LOL... you have been watching too much "Murder-she-wrote"..






.
Can't answer the question eh? Anyway real news is that Gonzalo Higuain may be playing his last game for Real Madrid tonight, Napoli have tabled a £30m bid for him. Hope ISP problems don't get in the way.
just texted my buddy in Meta... he reckons Napoli won't pay the asking price for Gonzalo.... he will either stay put or go somewhere else for stupid money.... but then again what would he know....LOL....
Your buddy could be right Arsenal have been asked to up their bid to £35m, big money, is he that good?
he works for Napoli F.C.
Tea boy?
he does whatever job you think he does , so long as it makes you sleep better... You would make a total t1t of yourself though if you asked anyone at any Italian stadium if they were the "tea boy"... not well travelled I take it !!

on a different note, did anyone else just watch the secret life of the bloke who moved the ball on the penalty spot for England in euro96? my god that man lives in some sort of dream world. he is good at evading questions though.

I think we need cover for the right back, a centre back, an attacking midfielder and a striker.... jeez, so does everyone! So keep the humour in the front seat please. STID[/p][/quote]the humour and the ever lasting quest for "proof".... ;0) [ see what I did there ][/p][/quote]Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'! :-) STID[/p][/quote]or by the fact that its impossible to prove many things in type.[/p][/quote]Far be it from me to give advice, and you are not obliged to take any, Guru. I always try to either substantiate or qualify what I post as these comments are permanent and if I can't, I don't. If it is too involved a process to list, then a source or link often suffices. Whilst sometimes I may be blunt, I am always respecful as we are all Saints fans here and have a common interest. (The exception being TB of course as in all this time I have not read a single solitary "supportive" comment from him). For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers. Just felt the need to set the record straight there. STID[/p][/quote]The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.[/p][/quote]So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .[/p][/quote]its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.[/p][/quote]I take your point .[/p][/quote]its not something I care about... I wished I had never mentioned it tbo,,, SFCs t&cs are obviously good enough for Love-will-tear-us-ap art and VW.... True it was a pain-in-the-ar5e to have a commitment broken after an agreement was made but it was not the end of the world... anyway.... back to shirts.... I have a squashed bug mark on my favourite work shirt... what is the best product for using as a pre-soak to rid me of this ?[/p][/quote]We also wished you had never mentioned it, promise you won't do it again unless it appears on the OS, and we will let you off.[/p][/quote]"WE" !?!? you really do have some issues... LOL.... the dreaded split personality !! or have you promoted yourself to spokesperson of your forum gang ??[/p][/quote]I am bored with this. There is no need for anyone to prove themselves right or anyone else to prove others wrong wrong. It just becomes a 'p!ssing contest. I can't even be bothered to read all the threads anymore. If BG want to tells us he knows things that is up to him. If people chose to disbelieve him then that is fine. Its just this constant bickering gets on my t!ts. No offence intended. Maybe its because its Sunday night, I've had too many Bacardi and Coke's and I have to work tomorrow but, I'm bored. Hurry up and sign someone else and roll on next season...[/p][/quote]Sorry, my bad. Wish we had something different to discuss. OSPREYSAINT

I didnt ask you about personal time of players or contract differences between Saints and Newcastle. I asked you SPECIFICALLY about IPRs which you state and have done again this evening, are big issues for players. IPR's have nothing to do with personal time and as I said before, having investigated this issue, cannot find one single example of a 'playing' footballer either having, requiring, or needing Intellectual Property Rights. It certainly isn't a major issue and is infact extremely rare if not non-existent.

we gave them 12 runs in the first few overs as our Wicky decided to keep right behind the stumps to medium-fast bowling for reasons no one could fathom.

Yes indeed. Although, of course, the quest could be obviated by the refraining from talking 'b0ll0ks'!

For the record,I have nothing against you as you are a 'Saint' and I haven't asked for proof of anything other than a qualification of this IPR business you have mentioned as I find no mention anywhere in relation to footballers.

Just felt the need to set the record straight there.

The IPR issue is straight forward. Saints players are not allowed the freedom to represent themselves and others in other clubs are. This is a fact because I have been ( with my associated ) at the end of it.... The reason I used Newcastle as an example is because I know the family of an ex-saint who is involved with charities up there and hence I know, again, for a fact that players have more freedom than saints players. This just happens to be true..... I can't really help that....and the only way to prove it is ask a Saints player personally as we did to come and represent themselves in a personal capacity and they will be prevented from doing so when in similar circumstances others from other clubs would not.
So what ? , the players sign a contract and know exactly where hey stand , nothing sinister from where i'm sat .
its not sinister. but it could be an issue for a potential signing who wants control of his personal time out of season to follow commercial and social contacts.... IPR issues is a major cause of potential signings falling through.... People assume "failure to agree personal term" means wages, and if often does , but it also covers other issues to. Lots of spanish and Italian players for instance have much larger collateral income by a % than premier league players on the whole ( esp spanish ) and its possible their commercial commitments would not be compatible with SFC's requirement to control personal off-season time.
I take your point .
its not something I care about... I wished I had never mentioned it tbo,,, SFCs t&cs are obviously good enough for Love-will-tear-us-ap

All this talk and arguments about IPR. AS I understand it most clubs will pay their palyers for use of their Image rights.This is because if I recall Image Rights are not classed as income by HMRC and therefore they are a tax efficient way of paying players. So all of this will be taken into account when negotiating a players contract. Ricky Lambert's image rights would be much more than Guly's. Our friends at the other end of the M27 paid Sol Campbell more for his image rights than they could ever hope to make from selling shirts and memrobelia with his name or picture on. This was pure and simply tax avoidence.Not that it did poor old Sol any good because he didn't get paid and that is why he ended up being a creditor of PFC.

Most Southampton Sunday League Teams, who play in the afternoon after the pubs chuck out and even those who play in the morning, with a hangover after the night before, would give Palamos a run for their money.
What is the point of MP pitting Saints against such dire opposition except to boost his win statistics - how can it possibly get Saints up to scratch to play Cardiff, yet alone Man U and Arseal?
MP has already shown the quality of his management skills by finishing, not third from last, not second from last but rock bottom with his previous club.
And replacing an unfairly sacked manager whose record during his last 12 games in charge was superior to MP's is another inspired signing by Mr Cortese just like Gaston, JR and the Norwegian Super Defender signed to bolster Saints this season, who was sold back to his old club Molde for half what NC paid without kicking a ball, plus of course the PR Director who lasted all of two weeks.
Watch out Saints fans, what goes around comes around, I think you're in for a bumpy ride this season -- the result of being run by an egotistical dictator.
Before anyone points out his successes --- even Hitler and Mussolini --- in their early days enjoyed great success -- but how did they end up?

Can't answer the question eh? Anyway real news is that Gonzalo Higuain may be playing his last game for Real Madrid tonight, Napoli have tabled a £30m bid for him. Hope ISP problems don't get in the way.
just texted my buddy in Meta... he reckons Napoli won't pay the asking price for Gonzalo.... he will either stay put or go somewhere else for stupid money.... but then again what would he know....LOL....
Your buddy could be right Arsenal have been asked to up their bid to £35m, big money, is he that good?
he works for Napoli F.C.

Bournemouth 0 Real 4 Ronaldo 2 Khedira and Higuain, at least the stars have shown up and played, so have Real Madrid![/p][/quote]Name them for what purpose ? London bookie yesterday has taken "not an insignificant" amount on Bale being a Man United player by start of the season.[/p][/quote]Name the Player so that I can investigate why it all went wrong, I need the other details to verify the story.[/p][/quote]LOL... you have been watching too much "Murder-she-wrote".. .[/p][/quote]Can't answer the question eh? Anyway real news is that Gonzalo Higuain may be playing his last game for Real Madrid tonight, Napoli have tabled a £30m bid for him. Hope ISP problems don't get in the way.[/p][/quote]just texted my buddy in Meta... he reckons Napoli won't pay the asking price for Gonzalo.... he will either stay put or go somewhere else for stupid money.... but then again what would he know....LOL....[/p][/quote]Your buddy could be right Arsenal have been asked to up their bid to £35m, big money, is he that good?[/p][/quote]he works for Napoli F.C.[/p][/quote]Tea boy?[/p][/quote]Wasn't Rick Astley a tea boy at Stock, Aitken and Waternman before his 'talent' was uncovered? Didn't do him any harm, did it?[/p][/quote]Absolutely, there is no disgrace in being a tea boy at all. Step one on the ladder. OSPREYSAINT

What is the point of MP pitting Saints against such dire opposition except to boost his win statistics - how can it possibly get Saints up to scratch to play Cardiff, yet alone Man U and Arseal?
MP has already shown the quality of his management skills by finishing, not third from last, not second from last but rock bottom with his previous club.
And replacing an unfairly sacked manager whose record during his last 12 games in charge was superior to MP's is another inspired signing by Mr Cortese just like Gaston, JR and the Norwegian Super Defender signed to bolster Saints this season, who was sold back to his old club Molde for half what NC paid without kicking a ball, plus of course the PR Director who lasted all of two weeks.
Watch out Saints fans, what goes around comes around, I think you're in for a bumpy ride this season -- the result of being run by an egotistical dictator.
Before anyone points out his successes --- even Hitler and Mussolini --- in their early days enjoyed great success -- but how did they end up?
What goes around comes around!
You are either a first class hypocrite or mentally ill, did you not promise, not to do this again? Or is you OCD so bad that can no longer help yourself, seriously you need counselling before it is too late. Have you still not understood Godwins Law?

I don't understand why we played two micky mouse teams in Spain. Surely Poch with his Catalan connections could have found two much stronger local teams; Girona and Sabadell for example?
