Tantrum as Dani disappoints again

Daily Echo: Osvaldo scores for Saints against Crystal Palace Osvaldo scores for Saints against Crystal Palace

Saints’ exiled record signing Dani Osvaldo was in a typically fiery mood as he fumed over being substituted in Juventus’ 2-0 Serie A defeat to Napoli.

The unpredictable Italian has failed to find the net in seven league appearances for the Turin club, after he was loaned out on the last day of the January transfer window following an alleged head-butt on Jose Fonte in a training ground bust-up.

It was in the runaway league leader’s second defeat of the season that the Saints striker was tasked with replacing the suspended Serie A top-scorer, with 18 goals, and former Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez.

Unfortunately for Osvaldo, his team suffered a rare defeat, their first in 22 games, in which he failed to impress, other than an ambitious overhead kick, and was substituted for Mirko Vucinic with 20 minutes to play, much to his displeasure.

The loanee St Mary’s man, who scored three goals in 13 appearances on the south coast after a big money move of around £15million from Roma, was reportedly seen to throw a tantrum, chucking the training jacket he was handed to the ground in disgust.

His disappointing performance has further fuelled speculation in Italy that he is unwanted by Juventus and will be returned to England in the summer, although it is expected that Saints will look to recoup some of the £15m they spent on him, by selling the 28-year-old.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I was hoping that he'd be banging in the goals so that we can get "our" money back. That takes on added importance in the light of yesterday's news about the club's finances.

Looking increasingly likely that he'll become our biggest duff purchase and a financial millstone. Almost certainly he's put paid to any substantial purchase in the summer.

Cortese and MoPo were always crowing about the in-depth analysis and care that was taken in the transfer market, that nothing was left to chance etc etc etc .... appears that somebody somewhere made an almighty boo boo on this one.

It is a good question.

It seems surreal that Jose Fonte sang his praises when he arrived in one of these threads, yet was involved in the fracas that saw Osvaldo leaving just a few months later

Osvaldo undoubtedly has skill, but he lacks anyelement of team spirit. He wants to be the star, he wants the ball and he wants it now !! We just don't play that way. So frankly I doubt he can ever fit back in with our squad. He's not like Puncheon, who basically ate humble pie and got a lot of respect for that, Osvaldo sees himself as a little rock god who has been misunderstood... all I can say to that is Diddums .. you kick a ball around for a living squire and if you don't deliver the you are out .. thats the same everywhere so get over yourself, get down to Mothercare and get a new rattle to throw out of the pram ..

I think we have to accept that we will make a loss on this player and just move on. It certainly looks like Juventus will be using the "return to sender" option.. but we shall see. If he does get picked by Italy to go to Brazil then maybe he will do enough there to enccourage some filthy rich club to buy him and then we can put the whole fiasco behind us.

He played for MoPo in Spain so he has personal experience of his capability and temperament. My feeling is he is frustrated because he is not scoring goals and worries he won't be on the plane to Brazil with the Italian squad. If that happens who knows how he will behave. A big risk/gamble for the team that owns his contract. I hope it isn't us.

It does rather beg the question if those responsible for transfer activity actually had any influence over Cortese. Could it be Cortese was exercising his "right" as CEO to overrule and make unilateral decisions. How could those experienced in assessing a player's potential to fit into the "Southampton" way get Osvaldo & Forren so badly wrong?

Having watched a montage on YouTube of goals he scored prior to signing for us, it was quite clear the guy has bags of talent. However, you have to ask what the idiot has got between his ears! At what point will he realise that he has a serious attitude problem. I can see us being stuck with him until the end of his contract - costly mistake by NC? Or was it MP?

It is interesting to see how opinions have changed on this guy.
Apart from the goal against City he showed nothing to warrant a fee of 15 million.
All those people that kept bigging him up with nothing to support their views are looking a bit silly.
As someone said he could be a millstone around the clubs neck.
How many of our big name signings have actually been worth anything near the fees paid for them?
It does make you wonder who actually picked these guy's, look at Wanyama I Know he is young but he was brought in and replaced Cork which always seemed unfair as Cork proved when he got his chance.
I know the club need to move forward but we must be better at selecting players and just because clubs demand big fees doesn't mean the player is worth it or we have to pay it.
Look at Spurs they had a good team but brought in 7 players without Premiere league experience which totally undermined the team.
How many of their signings actually get a game?, we must learn from their mistake and our own and make better decisions.

Whats the story here? He was upset at getting subbed?

We will get "our" money back dont worry.

In the meantime his wages are being paid. He is a quality player and an Italian international that is likely to play in the world cup. He will retain his value of 15m Euro so really there is no almighty boo boo.

Its a far better way of buying players than spending 5m on 4 average players paying them 20k a week each and hoping that one of them proves to be worth more than you paid.

Personally I think we need to keep our transfer policy the same.

Get real Wanyama is quality it was injured and rush back and got injured again very very unlucky !
Hindsight. Wonderful isn't it?
So is Wanyama better than Cork?
It's not the same style of football Wanyama is an anchor and sit back, Cork is not ! Cork passing is way better than Wanyama
Is Wanyama better than Cork? Is Gaston better than Adam, Is Chambers better than Clyne...

I think the peculiar thing that we are experienceing at Saints may just be the beginings of what is known as "strenght in depth"

He is way better when Cork is injured! And the other way round too.
One thing that has been made obvious this season is that if you want to sustain a challenge in this League, you have to have quality cover for every position.
At this level, unless you buy Messi or Ronaldo, any transfer is kind of a gamble. The Lyon fans were laughing their heads off when we paid £8m for "that donkey Lovren". Do you think they're still laughing now?

RVP was sold 20 or 30 million as a 29 year old but its RVP a WORLD CLASS STRIKER ! Osvaldo is so not he'll be back with us in the Summer
I`m here killared.
I don't know why your calling me out on anything regarding Osvaldo. have I ever said what I think he is worth? no.
have I ever said that we will definitely sell him to juve? no
its you who are saying that we will not sell him, its you that are putting a price on his head of £7-£9million, oh and by the way where are you getting £20mill from? the deal was for £15.6mill (that's not even 20 million euros).

I have only ever said that Osvaldo will be sold, never mentioned a price unless he is sold to juve, but he will not come back to staplewood. even if the club do have to take a loss on him he will not be back. he may well become a saints registered player again (still is but is on loan) but that does not mean he will be back at the training ground. if picked for the world cup he wouldn't be back until two weeks before the season starts anyway so that's plenty of time to sell him.
as for his `attitude`, there are always managers who think that they can control a player, and who are willing to take the chance on them.

killared you seem to have a thing about saints fans not watching European football, why do you think that I don't sit down to enjoy la liga on a sat night? what makes you think I don't sit down to watch the bundesliga on bt sports? what makes you think I don't watch serie A? well I can tell you that I do enjoy watching both the german and Spanish leagues, I don't watch it all the time but I do enjoy what I do see. as for serie A I gave up on that when it used to be on C4 years ago with James Richardson presenting. why did I give up? well basically because Italian football is/was boring to the extreme. any team who scores first immediately shuts up shop whilst the oppos hardly break sweat trying to break them down, oh and I could see back then how corrupt Italian football was/is. the only decent thing to come out of Italian football was that ref collina! so don't assume that just because we don't talk about European football it means that we don't watch it!
I do worry about your grasp of English football though killared, you slate the prem, you claim to be a saints and arsenil fan but side with arsenil if we play them. you then put down every saints player who is mentioned for international call ups, you have slated spiders chances and fontes chances claiming that both national teams have a lot of better players than those spoken about. how well did the French players get on at sms on sat? did you go to the game? have you ever watched championship/L1 football? (I don't watch L2 because saints have never sunk that low!). for a person who claims to support the club you do spend and awful lot of time slating the league its in, its players and their chances of getting to brazil, and most importantly to me the fans.
why do you seem to think your opinion is right all the time? I know that mine isn't but then I do say that and the only time I say something as fact or `the truth`, as you put it, is when I quote the clubs, players, managers statements.

Can you imagine him and Balotelli in the same Italian dressing room? Hilarious. More tantrums than Little Angels daycare centre.

They should get all these tossers and force them to play in the same team, starting XI to include Morrison, Barton and Bellamy in midfield, Balotelli, Osvaldo and Bendner up front. John Terry would have to be included in defence even though he's an OK player - any ideas for the defence, keeper and bench? Alan Pardew as manager because he deserves it, with Joe Kinnear as director of football (hold on, didn't someone try that already?).

I guess Tevez could get in but he's probably a bit too good, All squad members must have a bad attitude, a love of blaming others and habit of being sent off for any of the following: fights/swearing/stup
id challenges/throwing the ball away/kicking ballboys or pregnant women). They must also think they are the best player in the world but only turn it on once in every 10 games (so no Suarez or Eden Hazard).

well Boruc has had his fair share of attention for tantrums, but he is ours so all is forgiven. its just a shame that Jens Lehman has retired.
other players you could include are , the whole French team at the last world cup! anelka, evra and gallas are prime examples.
david Bentley always thought he was a lot better than he was.
el hadji diouf, too many to mention but spitting twice isnt a great start.
Adebayor, has had fallings out with nearly every team he has been at.
Ricardo Quaresma, accusations of urinating on club staff and bust ups with managers, has had contracts ended early at most clubs.
Antonio Cassano, regular fall outs with managers and players over inflated ego.
Mido would also have been worthy of a mention but has retired, bust ups with managers faking injury to play for roma instead of Egypt, bad reactions to being subbed.

its clear that Dani isn't the only `bad boy` out there and there are plenty of footballers who have very over-inflated egos.

Yeah, I though of van Persie as well as generally his team mates hate him, but both are a bit too good unfortunately, which rules out a lot of Dutch players actually. Bosingwa can probably line up on the right side of defence I reckon oh and we'll get Nile Ranger on the bench, forgot about him. Chico is an option, but not sure he's a big enough idiot to make the dream squad.

If he is 29 now he has gone past the age where he is likely to grow up. Unfortunately is seems he is a thick tw@t. We took a punt on getting an international class forward and it didn't come off. It happens (Torres, Michael Owen, Wolfswinkel, Sebastien Veron, etc etc etc. Get what we can and move on. It's not as if we aren't in profit on transfers is it? As Seed pointed out yesterday our current side cost next to nothing. Luke , Callum, Adam, SRL, Nat Clyne, JWP, Spider. There's £75 to £80 million easily. All clubs without a decent Academy have all that catching up to do. And I'd say Dejan and JRod are also worth a fair bit more than we paid. As are Corky and Steve Davis. There are always going to be successes and failures in the transfer market. All clubs suffer this and always will.

How many of our big name signings have actually been worth anything near the fees paid for them?
It does make you wonder who actually picked these guy's, look at Wanyama I Know he is young but he was brought in and replaced Cork which always seemed unfair as Cork proved when he got his chance.
I know the club need to move forward but we must be better at selecting players and just because clubs demand big fees doesn't mean the player is worth it or we have to pay it.
Look at Spurs they had a good team but brought in 7 players without Premiere league experience which totally undermined the team.
How many of their signings actually get a game?, we must learn from their mistake and our own and make better decisions.
Get real Wanyama is quality it was injured and rush back and got injured again very very unlucky !
Hindsight. Wonderful isn't it?
So is Wanyama better than Cork?
Yes defensively, when wanyama was fit at the beginning of the season we hardly conceded. Look now with Cork in the side the amount of goals we've let in. On another point Lovren too has looked a different player after his injury.

Breaking news!
Poopey have today announced they have no intention of making a bid for Dani Osvaldo. They are however thought to be one of a growing number of clubs interested in signing Luke, Adam, Morgan, Dejan, Callum, Nat, JWP, JRod and SRL. They are thought to have scared off all the leading contenders, including Chelski, Manure, MankyCity, Arse , Liver puddle and Spuds. In fact they have already posted a squad photo to the Mighty Saints with a request that all of those players sign it and return it to them so they can put it on the wall in their dressing room. They believe that if their players get to look at proper footballers occasionally it might inspire them to rise to the dizzy heights of around 20th in the bargain basement.

I am afraid he will be back at Saints where there will be three options, make use of him, get him to see a shrink, or see him out on loan again.Is Osvaldo stupid?? He will have seen the season we have had without him. Does he want to go to a minor Primera liga club where he will be forgotten, or does he want to knuckle down , behave and play a decent part next season. if he goes on like this he wont even be on the plane to Brazil. he needs to wake up , and smell the coffee. Its not that he cant do the business, his goal at St Marys was one of the very best any one has scored for Saints even allowing for goalie incompetence

Good World Cup and we'll double our money. Will probably score the goal that puts England out.

Don’t worry Jrod11, there is plenty of value left in those boys and Ramirez will help our push into the top 6 next season.
Now let’s take the fees and wages paid and in some cases still owed to the likes of useless has-beens like Ben Haim, Kanu, Benjani, James and Lawrence by those pitiful embarrassing skunts down the road .... nothing short of comical fortunately. uts.
Feck, you would be depressed if you were unlucky enough to be born in such a losers sh1thole, me and you are lucky. uts.
Why not the top 4 next season ..Champions League is where Poch wants to be.
Let’s not greedy Jrod11, top 6 is our target, Mauricio is from the Espanyol school of developing from the youth team and understands the virtue of patience. Sadly for them they did not have the Liebherrs behind them to see it through.
You know it makes sense my new found friend uts, we are indeed the bestest best fans in the country uts.
You wouldn’t get us booing our own team off the pitch every week like those sad blue few skint skunts down the road, even though they now own theirs apparently .... how depressing would that be?

I feel a song coming on.
Blue Few
We saw you standing alone
Without a dream in your heart
Without a team of your own.

BLUE FEW.....

Not what we need at all. We need him to be scoring in every game and behaving like an angel so we can get rid. If this carries on he'll become impossible to unload and will just be an expensive millstone round our neck.
There is no way you got 30 thumbs up! Lmfao.... You are a right mug.

It is interesting to see how opinions have changed on this guy.
Apart from the goal against City he showed nothing to warrant a fee of 15 million.
All those people that kept bigging him up with nothing to support their views are looking a bit silly.
As someone said he could be a millstone around the clubs neck.
How many of our big name signings have actually been worth anything near the fees paid for them?
It does make you wonder who actually picked these guy's, look at Wanyama I Know he is young but he was brought in and replaced Cork which always seemed unfair as Cork proved when he got his chance.
I know the club need to move forward but we must be better at selecting players and just because clubs demand big fees doesn't mean the player is worth it or we have to pay it.
Look at Spurs they had a good team but brought in 7 players without Premiere league experience which totally undermined the team.
How many of their signings actually get a game?, we must learn from their mistake and our own and make better decisions.
Get real Wanyama is quality it was injured and rush back and got injured again very very unlucky !
Hindsight. Wonderful isn't it?
So is Wanyama better than Cork?
Stupid question.
Different players, different strengths.
