RUMOUR MILL, Monday June 9 - Hull confident they can keep Steve Bruce, even if Saints show interest

Daily Echo: Steve Bruce Steve Bruce

HULL City are confident they will hang onto Steve Bruce - even if Saints decide Ronald Koeman is not the man to replace Mauricio Pochettino.

There has been speculation Bruce is interesting Saints, though Duch legend Koeman remains the red hot favourite.

Bruce's superb spell at the Tigers includes leading them to promotion from the Championship in 2012/13, and the club's first ever FA Cup final last season.

Hull also confounded their critics by comfortably avoiding relegation, though they were twice beaten by Saints - 4-1 at St Mary's and 1-0 at The KC Stadium.

 

 

Saints right back Calum Chambers, meanwhile, remains linked with a move to Arsenal.

According to reports, Arsene Wenger - no stranger to raiding St Mary's for Saints academy graduates - sees the England under-19 skipper as a potential replacement for Bacary Sagna.

The Frenchman could be on his way to join Manchester City on a Bosman.

Surely there is no comparison. As much as Steve Bruce did a good job with Hull, in my opinion, Ronald Koeman has to be the target. The opportunity to get a manager of his pedigree is a rare one. I believe, again it is only my opinion, that Koeman is a definite step up from Pochettino. I thought Pochettino was a great manager for us, however if you compare the CV of both, Koeman has the track record, he is also a huge name in the football world.

Please Saints, make this happen, get Koeman so he can start to shape our future.

So according to the papers Saints will lose Chambers, Shaw, Clyne, Lovren, Schneiderlin, Lallana, Ramirez, Fonte, Rodriguez, Cork, Ward-Prowse. Unless we are set to make premier League history - this seems frankly unlikely. Most of those are on long term contracts so Saints are in the driving seat in deciding a) what the fee is and b) whether clubs may talk to them. So far none of the suitors has put their money where their mouth is. Liverpool have only made a pretty half hearted bid for Lallana. i.e. 15m on the never never plus some rather fantasy based "add-ons" making up the supposed 25m. Manure have done something very similar regarding Shaw. So it remains to be seen if after the WC either club comes back with a serious cash on the nail bid that matches Saints valuation. My feeling is that only Manure will do that - but historically they penny pinch themselves out of all the big deals and this could just go the same way. Frankly I hope that they come up with a straightforward £30m cash offer then we wont have to suffer the embarrassment of seeing Luke in a Saints shirt next season. Then as far as I am concerned the ungrateful little so and so can Feck off. As for Adam he may well be backing the wrong horse. Liverpool are only happy to have him for peanuts it seems but are strangely happy to splash out real money on inferior foreign imports like Can and Shaquiri. If I were him I would have a very long think about that! Bring on RK and see the Saints stick it to Liverpool and Manure next season! PS - or Steve Bruce - I have a feeling he would be a great choice.

I think that Saints already have their manager, but they will not announce it until England play their first game, and so stick to their announcement that no more transfer business until the new manager is appointed. This will effectively nullify any attempts of Liverpool or Man.U. to speed up the transfer processes concerning Shaw and Lallana. With Koeman set for further talks with the Saints management this week I think he has been already chosen to succeed Pochetinno.

Better still just sign Koeman and watch him bring half the Dutch U21 team with him plus de Vries, Jaanmat, Indi, Clasie, Vilhenie and Pelle from Feyenoord. Thats the transfer money spent. Then Ince and Hunt on frees - Anyone who then wants to go is free to do so.

I remember once, Steve Bruce trying to get Tim Flowers to dive to the left when Norwich were about to take a penalty. There's mind-games for you. There's the psychological trickery that's made him the top manager, more mind-monger than manager. He's the man for us. Not the best central defender in his day, and in latter years has shown a complete inability to sidestep a kebab or a late-night box of Ritz biscuits, but a machine like that needs it's carbohydrates.

If I recall, Tim Flowers dived to the left and the Norwich player hoofed it up the middle. Although it may have been Man U we were playing, and he may have dived to the right. It was a Littlewoods Cup match, or maybe it was one of those awful Supercup matches they had after Heysel... God they were awful. It might have been Peter Shilton in goal... but, hey! It could have been Phil Kite or Alistair Sperring for all I know.

Claudio Ranieri down to 2/1 on oddschecker.
I can see the logic in hiring Ranieri.
At least he wouldn't use us as a stepping stone like Cappuccino did and maybe Ronald Koeman would. To be honest I would be happy with either CR or RK as our next manager. I would do it myself but I have Just got back from the World Erection Championships. Got as far as the semi's.
That must've been hard on you.
Too rigid in your techniques, it would climax in every member of the team wanting you out.

Saints are at the stage that we need to lift our profile to show the established top clubs that we mean to be among them next season.
Appointing a proven, high profile, successful manager is needed to also attract top players and convince ours to stay.
Therefore I would try for Rafa Benitez first or Claudio Ranieri second, both have proven Premiership experience, which is the problem with Ronald Koeman. RAFA only has one season left at Napoli and said he wants to come back to England and CLAUDIO has just left Monaco.
Come on Ralph you talk a good talk so go with Les and sell the club to one of these two.

I think that Saints already have their manager, but they will not announce it until England play their first game, and so stick to their announcement that no more transfer business until the new manager is appointed. This will effectively nullify any attempts of Liverpool or Man.U. to speed up the transfer processes concerning Shaw and Lallana. With Koeman set for further talks with the Saints management this week I think he has been already chosen to succeed Pochetinno.
Makes sense ...good call.
Lets hope RK get the job, my father in law (Dutch and Ajax supporter) rates RK highly, he used to talk him up when he was a player and is always bringing youth through the team when he's in charge.

Don't know where these stories come from but as I stated earlier those so-called starlets have not done well at that cheap other north London club.
"Calum, don't think just because a french manager who has outstayed his welcome in the premier league might have his eye on you means as is stated in DE (potential replacement for Bacary Sagna) means you will play for them". If you stay you will be a regular next season if Luke Shaw decides to jump ship and swim to the shores of a club near a big canal in the north. And even if he stays you will be in the first team for a long time to come.
Stay near the clear and calm waters of the Solent knowing your success is guaranteed.

Also didn't used to play right wing for England when he started? Gives us options with Clyne and Chambers to play together?

Ronald Koeman's agent has dismissed rumours that the Dutchman has held talks with West Brom - as he waits on the Southampton job. Koeman remains the bookmakers favourite for the St Mary's vacancy, despite reports on Tuesday morning claiming that he was also holding talks with Baggies officials about potentially taking over at the Hawthorns next season. The Dutchman was linked to West Brom in January before they appointed Spaniard Pepe Mel - while ex-Spurs boss Tim Sherwood remains the favourite for that vacant head coaching position. Koeman's agent Guido Albers has confirmed that his client is not in any discussions with the Black Country club. Albers said: "There has been no discussions between Ronald and West Brom. Ronald is currently on holiday."

Portsmouth eye Havant & Waterlooville midfielder
BY HARRY MULISCH ⋅ JUNE 10, 2014 ⋅ POST A COMMENT
FILED UNDER LEAGUE TWO, NIGEL ATANGANA, POMPEY, PORTSMOUTH
Atangana is highly-rated box-to-box midfielder
Atangana is highly-rated box-to-box midfielder
The News is reporting that Portsmouth are in talks with non-league side Havant & Waterlooville over their midfielder Nigel Atangana.

24-year-old powerful midfielder joined the Hawks at the end of the last summer and has since played 43 games for the club, scoring 5 times. He played for French lower league sides Dives and Gravelines in recent seasons.

However, the deal between two south coast clubs is far from complete, with Atangana having one year left on his Havant contract and Pompey being unable to pay fees for players, as part of the terms of exiting administration.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH
