Saints executive director Les Reed has insisted Saints are “determined” to hold onto their talented youngsters, despite the sale of Calum Chambers.

The 19-year-old today completed a switch to Arsenal for a fee believed to be £12m up front rising to a possible £16m.

He follows fellow Saints academy graduates Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana out of St Mary’s this season.

Chambers is the fifth first team player to be sold by Saints this summer with only Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle having been signed by the club thus far.

Reed defended the transfer policy, saying: “We are naturally disappointed whenever any of our Academy graduates leave the club, and that is very much the case with Calum’s departure.

“Calum made it clear to us that he did not see his future at Southampton. As such, it was crucial that we were able to negotiate a substantial fee that also reflects the work our staff have put into Calum’s development since he joined the club at the age of eight.

“Our position remains unchanged in that we are determined to keep our best young players at the club, as is evidenced by the decision to award Harrison Reed a new long-term contract last week, adding to the list of committed young professionals like James Ward Prowse, Sam Gallagher, Jack Stephens, Jordan Turnbull, Matt Targett, Sam McQueen and others who have seen plenty of first-team activity recently.

“We have an abundance of talent in the Academy coming through, and everybody at the club is continuing to work hard on bringing in quality new players as we build a team capable of taking us further forward in the coming seasons.

“It is important in the transfer window to remain calm, resilient and above all patient. We have targets, and we are working hard to get them across the line.”

Determined until someone wave a wad of money, then 'off the go.'

What I find strange is that Liverpool are spending 'mega-bucks' but have not increased the price of their season tickets, while Saint have sold 'virtually everything that moves' and have put their prices up.

Where is all the money going?

It does not appear to have gone on replacements.

Alright Les-- SRL,s move was emotional Luke's offer was too good to ignore, Adam was an opportunity, and Dejan and Calum became toxic.

Now some of these moves are undoubtedly not helped by player and agent greed (which will contribute to the ultimate demise of the Premiership).

But where is the message to the likes of Cork and Schniederlin and J Rod that they should stay when all there first XI peers have already gone?????

Anymore departures -expected?

PLEASE SAY NO!!

IMHO a very weak and inadequate response from Les I feel...especially after his previous statements made by him about 'wanting to retain our best players and young talent' ...and him knowing how angry and disappointed fans are not to have been told more (even allowing for the fact that not ALL aspects of business and trading should or can be shared). I wonder WHY Calum wants to leave - is it the same 'Money Idol' in his head as with most of the others who have left? Usually someone else (or the media) plants the ideas (or lies) - Idols start in the head, reach the heart and then impact the will - e.g. to LEAVE THE CLUB FOR MORE MONEY or to 'chase after the wind and false unrealistic dreams'. I still love the club, its fantastic heritage, not forgetting where we were a few years ago, still massively believing in RK and hopefully him masterminding a quality team rebuild - but I wonder how long all this will take before we start winning games against the rest?

He was probably dissappointed at the relatively down beat pre season tour that didn't involve visits to Barcelona or any big club facilities that we are (undoubtedly) trying to emulate. That and a massive pay hike .. Surely these trifles didn't influence his decision in any way whatsoever ..

Les Reed is quite right, "the Southampton Way" works. The fact that the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are cherry picking our best players is proof of that.
So there is no point in blindly slagging off Club staff and directors for being smarter and more astute than their their opposite numbers at "bigger clubs". And there is certainly no point in panicking.
Remember, last time we had a witch hunt at St Mary's we ended up with Michal Wilde as chairman, and were embracing financial oblivion within weeks.

Thing is, whilst it's great that young players like Harry sign, (1) you're talking about really young guys who have yet to make an impact; and (2) by selling Chambers so early into a long term deal, you prove that them signing is completely meaningless with regards to keeping hold of them. You are a total joke, completely inconsistent, borderline duplicitous and are embarrassing the club.

Someone should tell Read that it is important for the club to get all the players together and set out a clear vision for them for the future. This is not the vision they were sold by Cortese and that is why they are all leaving in their droves! There is no Leadership at the club anymore and everything is being taken out of Koeman's hands.

Chambers not seeing his future at the club is a joke! He wasn't even first choice in our team. Maybe he say Clyne as too good a player to get past but he has the ability to play centreback and midfield according to Wenger! I'm sorry but another manager should not be telling us where our Academy players can be played we should be doing it first! I agree that Chambers could have played centreback actually and I think he could well have been in a back 3 with Clyne as full back. Koeman was the first to play the 5-3-2 formation. Now we don't have good enough defenders to play it! Even Danny Fox could have walked into the first team now. Having Sharp in the squad still just says it all too.

Now we don't have good enough defenders to play it! Even Danny Fox could have walked into the first team now. Having Sharp in the squad still just says it all too. allsaintsnocurves

A few weeks ago on the Bmuff echo pages someone put on there, 'selling half our squad was a disgrace' - at the time we had only sold Lambert, with others reported to be on the way, so I thought that the disgrace comment was a bit out of order. Now I am inclined to agree, every transfer rumour has rung true so far - with the sale of Chambers a particular kick in the teeth as I never saw this coming. I would be very surprised if we held on to Schneiderlin and maybe even Jack Cork. This has become an absolute joke and a disgrace - similarly offering less than the asking price for incoming players is ridiculous as its well documented that Saints have the cash to spend now and so no team are going to sell players for £2M less than what they are asking. Get your wallet out Katarina or sell the club now so we can start to rebuild before we descend back through the football league...

How can
"Saints are “determined” to hold onto their talented youngsters, despite the sale of Calum Chambers."

appear in the same article as

"Chambers is the fifth first team player to be sold by Saints this summer"

as for the paragraph " “Our position remains unchanged in that we are determined to keep our best young players at the club, as is evidenced by the decision to award Harrison Reed a new long-term contract last week, adding to the list of committed young professionals like James Ward Prowse, Sam Gallagher, Jack Stephens, Jordan Turnbull, Matt Targett, Sam McQueen" This just makes the shopping list even easier to draw up for the agents.

Mr Reed is not currently presenting a very convincing case for the future. His outpourings are simply not trusted. If we give him the benefit of the doubt there is still theoretically time and capability to prove the doubters wrong .. but goodness me, without some signings soon this club has effectively sold all the family silver and will need every penny of the proceeds to be able to keep its place in this league.

No one can say we haven't got well over what all off these players are worth but where are the big signings, signings to make others want to come, signings that make a statement and make current first team players want to stay.

Even if there are major signings now, very little time to make a team out of them and I don't think we have seen the last of players requesting to jump ship.

Unfortunately, as has been mentioned several times beforehand, Saints have been guilty of the success they've had on the pitch. The club board though have ensured that it has been compensated well for each of the player sales. However, I have a number of questions that I would like to have answered,

1. Why have we sold players before getting in replacements? So far we have only got replacements in for Lambert and Lallana.

2. Why haven't the club's hierarchy got the stomach to say no to player transfer requests out? Why has the club caved in on all transfer requests so far? Why would it have been in a player's interest to rot in the reserves or bench? Have none of them seen what happened to David Bentley at Spurs?

3. What are the club doing with the remaining assets? To my mind Jack Cork and Steven Davis were 2 of our best, yet underrated players over the last 2 seasons. Why are they not being rewarded sufficiently?

4. What are the 20 people in the recruitment department doing exactly? So far only 2 players in this season, and 3 in last summer's transfer window.

5. Where is the promised transparency in the club's activities? I trusted the words of the new chairman in terms of a more openness with the club's workings, however we have had virtual silence, apart from the Manager's commentary.

6. What is the new 5 year plan that has been drawn up? What are the expectations of the club's hierarchy?

I know I probably won't have any of these questions answered. The only supposed good news I'll be given is how we have managed to win 4 out of 4 friendlies against substantially lower level teams and that we have a lot of great players coming through.

What exactly is he getting paid to do - surely he must know that the fans are angry and deserve better - I suggest he agrees to the requested Saints fans forum as requested by BBC Radio Solent and let the fans lose on any of the Panel - if any of them are brave enough to attend. If not, at least issue some sort of worthwhile statement explaining exactly what has gone so wrong this summer.

Wrong - if the income for Saints has not been paid in bonus or dividend it will either be counted as a financial asset albeit a cash asset or whatever the money had been spent on to enhance the club. For example the training, the rumoured academy in the States etc. If it is considered a genuine asset it will have a monetary value and be assessed as such. Therefore in theory at least, if Saints FC was indeed valued at 200m providing there has been no lessening of the demand for purchasing clubs (and there as been an enormous drop - Villa's price has dropped by 50m and there are still no offers) the club would still be worth approx 200m. Don't know what the latests assessment was or who carried it out but your sum of 100m is unlikely as we have that much not as a player asset but as a cash asset. (unless, as I said it has been removed from the club) I bet there are accountants or corporate finance experts posting here who would be able to explain that a lot better than me.

It's all part of a long term master plan. We are going to blood 3 or 4 academy players every season, play them for 7 or 8 games and then move them on to the gormless vulture clubs for silly money. Eventually all the top four will be full up to overflowing with ex Saints academy lads and then we are going to unveil a complete side of young Messis , Kompanys, Ronaldos etc and take the league by storm as we will have taken all their available transfer cash in previous seasons. PS it's nice to know that LedsReed is actually still alive. So there still is a chance we might sign a player before the window closes. Hey Les us fans are trying to remain calm and resilient but our patience is wearing VERY thin.

Your assessment is wrong. Yes, if you consider merely the conversion of one type of asset to another. What you are forgetting is the difference in cash flow arising because of the conversion. The conversion may look neutral, but the return on investment from having good players on the pitch that will get more points on the board, is arguably much higher than the rerun on investment you get from mediocre players and cash in bank. And who know, perhaps the discrepancy will turn out to be 100 million points...

If you get the chance, read the very interesting article in yesterday's Sunday Times about Saints, the gist being Cortese left the club with £30m debt from unpaid transfer fees, Koeman knows what he's doing and that the club is making so much money from sales that there will be a considerable surplus to reinvest as necessary.
It suggests Saints have got very good prices for the players and that Koeman has the nous to bring in equally good players for the half the price of those sold.
It's a very positive slant but, of course, time will tell how accurate it proves to be.

£12 million, rising by a few mill for a player with his potential is an utter joke. When he eventually leaves Arsenal for a bigger club you see if the fee Arsenal receive will be anything like the peanuts we received.

Not amused Les!!!

I suspect the management team are as sickened by all of this as we are as there should be more positive tasks they could be fulfilling at the club instead of chasing this line of time consuming misery. The only reason Morgan is still here is because he hasn't yet and maybe won't, tried to hardball the club. The first time his agent calls in and says his client won't be attending training today and Morgan will be out of the door too (and quite rightly so, however reluctant we might be to lose him) After that it'll be JWP and probably coming to a halt then. Of all the players we had to lose, two I valued the most were Spyder and Clyne - both are still here albeit maybe by the skin of their teeth.

After the previous sales the next will be cheap shirts that fit no one, as they will be hoping at least 11 get sold to make a team.

unless theres some serious transfers in I beleieve the club is on one course only and thats back to days of Burley in the Championship. The club must be devalued by more than the sum of the players as no right minded player will want to join.
gonna take one hell of a manager to put together 6 players into a first team and make it work, Morgan will be next followed by J Rod if not now at xmas.

Reckon this will be the last time for a season ticket, did wonder why this year renewal was earlier now we all know, bank the money then sell the team and bank some more, is there a For Sale sign outside St Mary's yet?

Little we can do as fans, we're just customers, no sign of Kruegar, reckon Reed will get lynched if he appears,

sorry Mr Koeman not sure what dream they sold you but it appears they've sold it to someone else

A short while ago I felt the same way about brazening it out with the players. I've come to learn that the only ones really being hurt by that is us. The player is multi million pound asset and if he is not turning his efforts into money on a Saturday he's as much use as a chocolate fireguard and needs to be moved on hopefully for a goodly sum - So far we've got great prices for our little disappointments let's just hope that continues.

My main worry now is who the hell is going to want to join us after watching so many talented players leave all saying they wanted to take the next step in their careers. Anyone with any ambition is not going to join us now. RK really has got a job on his hands and the only way I can see him changing things is to make two or three top quality signings very quickly. It is simply not going to cut it to depend on the next generation of young talent coming through. Time to shut up shop and if that means someone sits with the Under 15s for a year so be it!! We have ambition to Mr Reed and enough is enough. Coyrs!!,

I am sure you are probably right, I am afraid.

Does anyone else also find it disappointing that Koeman has failed to have any influence on persuading any of these players even just to give the club one more year. You would think a player like Chambers could learn a lot from Koeman as a fellow defender but instead he sees no future for himself at Southampton.

we need to act against agents in football.. they are adding nothing to the sport and the sport can decide to exclude them..

Yes JLS but the person doing the speaking gave a completely different picture to the fans in May. I AGREE with you that once the player says I'm not training, he's gone. I said the same back in May but got torn apart for saying it. Ok the player is out of the door, why can't we play a bit of hard ball and up what is a very low fee? Also by really sticking to our guns we might send a message that we are not a bunch of mugs.

For me losing Clyne would be the biggest remaining disaster thank God the guy has some loyalty and isn't trying to engineer a move away.

I AGREE with you that once the player says I'm not training, he's gone. I said the same back in May but got torn apart for saying it. Ok the player is out of the door, why can't we play a bit of hard ball and up what is a very low fee? Also by really sticking to our guns we might send a message that we are not a bunch of mugs. For me losing Clyne would be the biggest remaining disaster thank God the guy has some loyalty and isn't trying to engineer a move away.[/p][/quote]Yet! OSPREYSAINT

LIES .. MORE LIES AND THERE'S LES REED.

Read on a Prem Transfer Internet site about reasons to be cheerful - they included some of our Starlets including Chambers.

SOLD FOR ONLY £12 MILLION - just because arsenal felt they may need some cover at CB - WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE - NO WONDER FANS ARE ANGRY.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

Just because a Player (and all do) has aspirations to more - that is NOT A REASON TO SELL him on - MUPPET SFC BOARD.

everton KEEP THEIR PLAYERS - depute the same pressures but who have we got ....

FAT KAT - and getting FATTER by the day !!

SPINELESS RALPH - who won't say boo to a ghost - let alone be Chairman of a Premier League Football Team - absolute WASTE OF A SALARY !!

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ....... 0/10 and that's being generous.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

It suggests Saints have got very good prices for the players and that Koeman has the nous to bring in equally good players for the half the price of those sold.
It's a very positive slant but, of course, time will tell how accurate it proves to be.
It was a good piece but he got his facts wrong and so did Ralph, yes we did owe money for the training ground and yes there was some outstanding transfer costs which would be paid in instalments as with the training ground, but we finished 8th and that money with the television money by far covered those debts and I believe am correct in saying there was a surplus of £ 20-30 million.

You have to ask the question what is the reason why all these players see no future with Saints. If what we see is anything to go by the club is being run by people completely out of their depth. What is Reid expecting as whenever he opens his mouth it's just a pack of lies. I am really getting worried now along with so many others. However if at least we can see some action with replacements coming in the supporters will get more and more agitated.
What player will join us now when he sees this pantomime going on and pundits already predicting relegation.

Dear Mr Reed, Can't you, Ms Liebherr and Mr Krueger take the hint. The majority of passionate Saints supporters have tired of your meddlings at our club. Of course you wouldn't consider going anywhere else whilst you're bleeding the club dry of our fabulous talent and creaming off fantastic bonuses from the sales for yourself. I feel sorry for Mr Koeman too with you selling our best players behind his back. If you think £12m is enough for the England U19 captain then you are seriously deluded. You will have to be careful though, since the value of our club will be significantly diminished if we are fighting relegation and your position at the club will be untenable if we are relegated. I hope it is not allowed to get that far before Ms Liebherr cuts and runs. I've heard that a figure of £100m would see her gone once you've finished the asset stripping process. I'd like to think that you are all spending some time reading and digesting the fans opinions and comments but I would hate to think that you are delayed from expediting the business of creaming yet more bonuses from the sales of Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin and any other players that, hopefully for you, the so-called big clubs may fancy to sign on a whim! Oh how we all laughed last season when Hansen said on Match of the Day that we would not be able to hang on to our best players because we were a selling club. We assumed we would be able to hold on to them because of the financial well being of the club. How naive we all were!

Anymore departures -expected?

this is bad, very bad. not for us . saints have just got £18mill for a 19yr old second choice RB who has only a handful of games under his belt. did chambers think he couldn't work hi way into the team ahead of clyne?
I think chambers is a good player but think clyne is better.
I wish chambers well though I think he will struggle to get into the arsenil team/squad. how they can justify paying so much for him?
this is the problem with English football and the reason England failed miserably in the world cup. top `big teams` take the young English players from the club that developed them to fill their quota for Europe. they then fail to continue their development properly because they don't get regular football. we then have loads of good young English players who aren't as good as they could be which affects the national team. chambers is now a cert for an England call up ahead of the better clyne, reason? well roy said himself that he wants these young English layers to be playing in the champs league!
I would love football governing bodies to come up with a rule that states that players under the age of 21 can not be transferred, give them time to fully develop.
good luck callum I hope you do well but think you have seen the big money and the big city lights as more important to you than becoming the best player you can!

The rumours are getting stronger about spider and J Rod. Quite frankly it wouldn't surprise me if one or both are gone by the end of the week. Despite yesterday saying J Rod wouldn't go in this window. Theres no reason not to believe the rumours, because all the previous ones have come true.

Failing to get important players signed up on new contracts and weak and inept in the transfer market. Utter embarrassment.

I can answer that one. All departing players so far have gone to top four clubs for huge wads of cash. Why is it so difficult for everybody to understand that we can't compete with these clubs when it comes to wages.
That explains why they want to leave-guessed that myself too. Rumours are of other reasons than money, but who knows..
Doesn't answer why we just rolled over and said yes.
Nor our plans to replace, or our vision for the future.
Well possibly if it was just one or two players wanting away for loads of cash we could teach them a lesson, make them train with the lads and sit them on the bench till they see the light. Unfortunately we seem to have inherited a complete side of big time Charlie's and it would be pretty difficult for a manager to motivate a side who have been refused moves for huge wages. Maybe the club has decided that we have no choice but to remove all the rotten wood from the tree, whilst at the same time charging for mahogany while selling pine.

I have been prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt and remained patient to hold off judging before I saw the whole picture. But even viewing this through rose tinted specs the very least Les could do would be to say to Chambers and Arsenal "just wait till I have had a chance to get a few in to appease the fans before we sell" That's just basic PR. This sale, at this time, suggests he really is clueless.

Anybody with ambition who is good enough will go to a club in the top four or at least trying for it. All other players would be interested in coming to us if the money is right. We already signed dopey Dani and Gaston from Italy because the prem. League pays more and the same goes for our two signings this year as well. So there are around 14 clubs who seem to have no ambition but I'm pretty sure they will all be fielding 11 players on the first day of the season.

Les, please stop treating the fans like we are some kind of idiots. Tell it how it is. I'm sick of hearing we're not a selling club. We are a selling club, just admit it. By next week I expect to see Morgan and J-Rod gone and if we are lucky you will have signed one player by then.
It's so obvious what's going on, so just come clean. It's a bloody disgrace that you can say "we are determined to keep our best players". Are you suggesting your strategy is effective?
It has become abundantly clear that if a player knocks on your door and states he no longer sees his future at Southampton you simply sell him. The question I have to ask is "why do so many of our players want to leave?" What has happened to see such drastic changes? If KL is looking to sell the club then please hurry the hell up. I would love to see a sale that involves Cortese's return. No wonder he walked, no wonder Pochettino left, and no wonder the players are heading for the exits. They all knew what was really going on behind the scenes. Don't you think if we were ambitious we would be adding to the squad rather then decimating it?
We are not stupid Mr. Reed. You have managed to sign 2 players. You promised ALL money raised by player sales would be reinvested in the squad. You will not accomplish it because you simply take too long to sign a single player. Unless you are about to announce the arrival of Messi, of course! I happen to think the money has been used to pay off the new training facility, which YOU will argue is an investment in the team. It's not, it's an investment (a very good one undertaken by NC) in the club.
You now speak about what a great deal you made by signing Harrison Reed to a new contract. Does that count as a new signing in your mind?
Once again, as a Saints fan I went into the summer looking forward to the new season, and as has happened so many times in the past, I am now dreading it. Rupert Lowe took a gamble on youngsters and we all know how that ended.
How long will Ronald Koeman put up with this?
Where is Kreugar? Not a word from him all summer. Is he still Saints Chairman? I have a feeling he is not.
Come clean please, you owe it to the fans.

Why did they drop so many points? points that could have seen us in the top four?
It's looking as if these players had already made up their minds they were going & needed not to be in Europe to give them an excuse to leave the club.
What ever it was this isn't the boards fault it looks pre-meditated action by the players but orchestrated by whom?

Because the players have learned it's okay to throw their dollies out and refuse to soldier and we're left with a player who won't play and is likely to cause even more grief throughout the team. We have an agent who now has his clients permission to put out all sorts of nonsense and the best things any manager can do is just get shot for the highest amount possible. I wonder if there could be clauses penalizing the player financially if he refuses to fulfill the terms of his contract (over and above what is currently in their contracts and seems unenforceable)?
The problem with putting clauses in contracts is getting the player to sign them in the first place, players only like signing contracts that benefit them, I am afraid players and agents hold all the ace cards.
Hmm point taken. Seems the smaller clubs really do not stand a hope when the big boys come calling then. Sad.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

Just because a Player (and all do) has aspirations to more - that is NOT A REASON TO SELL him on - MUPPET SFC BOARD.

everton KEEP THEIR PLAYERS - depute the same pressures but who have we got ....

FAT KAT - and getting FATTER by the day !!

SPINELESS RALPH - who won't say boo to a ghost - let alone be Chairman of a Premier League Football Team - absolute WASTE OF A SALARY !!

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ....... 0/10 and that's being generous.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

COYR+WS
Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.
I believe the term Fat Kat apply describes a rich and big money person due to the ownership of large amounts of capital .... that is our Owner Katerina.

I am asking her for Strong Leadership or DEMAND STRONG LEADERSHIP from the Chairman to act in the best interests if the Club.

MARKUS was an ABSOLUTE SAIINT.

WE DEMAND A STOP PUT on all Players Sales in this Window- the Firesale must END NOW !!!

WE MUST GET MORE than a token couple of Players in - difficult when Les reed asks for patience and puts ultra low bids in knowing that Players will not be secured.

THERE MUST BE A STATEMENT securing the Medium Term future of the Club including planning for a New Stadium or extension to St Marys so that we can compete on a more level playing field and not to be in this position FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS of achieving 8th at best in the PREM and WINNING NO CUPS.

PA reports the Yids are in for Schnides and J Rod.

Does the Board have any answer to the never ending list of departures or do they think , that having spent the whole summer designing a shirt with stripes that it will keep us happy.

The Club is awash with money, make sure Morgan and J Rod are offered enough to stay , at least till January. Any more departures will be Premiership suicide...even if we do buy minimum 4 top replacements because it's all about bedding in.

Les you are a disgrace if these 2 leave.

But where is the message to the likes of Cork and Schniederlin and J Rod that they should stay when all there first XI peers have already gone?????

Anymore departures -expected?

PLEASE SAY NO!!
Every single one will go if their agent manages to find a club willing to pay half as much again in wages.
How can anyone say no other than the players themselves. I think your prophecy may well be true - I wonder if it's not already happening in fact. The PL is no longer the best or toughest league in the world. Spain's top teams are where everyone who wants to become someone wants to play. There are a few others teams like B Munich, PSG, Inter Milan which can still snap their fingers and get the player they want, when they want him but have you noticed how the real top players are just using our top clubs to get to those clubs especially RMadrid and Barca. They could turn up at Liverpool and if they wanted a Skiverpool player - that player would be gone and Skiverpool would not be able to do anything more about it than when they come knocking on our door. It cannot end well unless there are major decisions made throughout the football bodies and they are currently making far to much money to want to rock the boat. Football has been hi-jacked and corrupted.

It may have started as the fault of management and board members (we'll never know the 100% true story) and quickly spread throughout certain players through the efforts of somebody with an ulterior motive maybe and on that I think I see your idea as being more feasible.

First part spot on, but not sure about the second.....Cortese said he'd never return and why would he now that the squad is almost back to square one in terms of the players. Players that took 5 years in the wilderness to develop and then galvanise in 2 seasons in the PL.

All the players that have gone had long contracts, Les Reed and the Fat Moose of an owner (who apparently can't stand football) could easily have played hardball (as Cortese used to do) they are after all only dealing with witless footballers and their agents, but they didn't because it was always the plan to strip the assets for optimum value and then sell the infrastructure and separately to gain maximum value.

Offical Complaint and Letter of Concern sent to Southampton FC.
Dear Sir / Madam,

I have been a Southampton supporter all my life. I am a season ticket holder, and have been for years. I'm writing to register an official complaint and express my concerns over the player exodus.

I recently received my new season ticket for the forthcoming season, and now feel that this has been mi sold. If I had known that all my favourite players were to be sold off before the start of the new season: I would have reconsidered my renewal.

I am also extremely upset over what I, and many other loyal and passionate Southampton supporters feel, was being lied to. We were assured that there would be no 'fire-sale' and that this is what has now happened. Also, why has our new Manager no control over which players are sold?

We were promised that all monies from sold players would be reinvested. This patently hasn't happened, and with the new season just a few weeks away now, even if new signings are made, how could the new cheap foreign imports Southampton football club seem to be bringing in be gelled into any semblance of a team?

I feel embarrassed at the moment to be a Southampton supporter. I feel upset that I, and all Southampton supporters have been lied to by the board of Directors - that Hockey coach, and Les Reed.

I would really appreciate an expedient reply in addressing the issues above I have highlighted.

From an extremely disillusioned and upset Southampton Season Ticket Holder. I would appreciate an expedient reply.

maximising profits and, imho, preparing to sell the Club on KL's behalf.
Ronko surely could not have known half of this and he is left with the thankless task of trying to attract players. But lets face it who is going to want to come to Saints with all this uncertainty? We will start the season with a mixture of young untried players and some very average signings.
Relegation is more than likely. It could all have been so different if KL had had the vision to invest to make that that final progression.

As a Saints supporter for more than 50 years I've grown used to a good season being followed by a bad one with the same players being responsible for both the highs and the lows. Only in the past five years have we experienced improvements year on year at the club so I think it only reasonable to stand back and look at what's actually happened this summer - leaving any criticism of the board/management until after the closure of the transfer window or even further into the season.
Five players have gone so far - all to what would be considered "Top 4" sides. We should be worried if they are going to lower Prem sides but they are not, and as mentioned by other posts, this is still the natural order of things.
The midfield has lost only Lallana so far - Schneiderlin, Cork, Wanyama, Davis and Ward-Prowse are still here and when substitutions were made last year, Lallana always seemed to be the one that went off. So with Tadic we are probably no worse off than last year.
Shaw and Chambers have gone - let's be honest for silly money and we would have been foolish not to take these inflated prices. Targett and Clyne will fill the roles adequately. In fact, I think Clyne is substantially better than Chambers and he is still young. A worry is Lovren going since we have no good cover so RK will have to buy here.
Lambert has gone but Pelle has arrived. So are we really that much more worse off than last year especially when it looks likely that a goalkeeper, one or two defenders, and another striker are being sought by RK.
Another midfielder and a further striker in preference to Gallacher would be a bonus and will be achievable with the amount of money available.

Wrong - if the income for Saints has not been paid in bonus or dividend it will either be counted as a financial asset albeit a cash asset or whatever the money had been spent on to enhance the club. For example the training, the rumoured academy in the States etc. If it is considered a genuine asset it will have a monetary value and be assessed as such. Therefore in theory at least, if Saints FC was indeed valued at 200m providing there has been no lessening of the demand for purchasing clubs (and there as been an enormous drop - Villa's price has dropped by 50m and there are still no offers) the club would still be worth approx 200m. Don't know what the latests assessment was or who carried it out but your sum of 100m is unlikely as we have that much not as a player asset but as a cash asset. (unless, as I said it has been removed from the club) I bet there are accountants or corporate finance experts posting here who would be able to explain that a lot better than me.
Your assessment is wrong. Yes, if you consider merely the conversion of one type of asset to another. What you are forgetting is the difference in cash flow arising because of the conversion. The conversion may look neutral, but the return on investment from having good players on the pitch that will get more points on the board, is arguably much higher than the rerun on investment you get from mediocre players and cash in bank. And who know, perhaps the discrepancy will turn out to be 100 million points...
See I knew someone on here would know the intricacies and loopholes and be able to explain it. Thanks. Creative accountancy indeed.

Quite right. Reed and Krueger are a two clown act as so many have said on this site. I just cannot understand this feverous activity to SELL anyone who apparently say thy don't see any future at St Marys in spite of the fact that most if not all have recently signed contracts that they now simply tear up. How can the club constantly refer to "us" as a non selling club. Could it be the Ron will return with Messi, Ronaldo and a couple of others? Well might as well dream.

Read on a Prem Transfer Internet site about reasons to be cheerful - they included some of our Starlets including Chambers.

SOLD FOR ONLY £12 MILLION - just because arsenal felt they may need some cover at CB - WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE - NO WONDER FANS ARE ANGRY.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

Just because a Player (and all do) has aspirations to more - that is NOT A REASON TO SELL him on - MUPPET SFC BOARD.

everton KEEP THEIR PLAYERS - depute the same pressures but who have we got ....

FAT KAT - and getting FATTER by the day !!

SPINELESS RALPH - who won't say boo to a ghost - let alone be Chairman of a Premier League Football Team - absolute WASTE OF A SALARY !!

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ....... 0/10 and that's being generous.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

COYR+WS
Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.
Everton keep their players - Really? Let's see if you can work through the seasons and see who left Everton against the wishes of their manager - I can't be bother because when someone makes a sweeping statement such as this and then are shown up to be absolutely wrong there arises a credibility gap - You, by being silly have created that gap and anything of interest you may have had to say would also be discounted.
Long Memory is right - insulting Kat, especially when she is unlikely to come on here to defend herself is pretty low. Sometimes in life it is better the devil you know than the devil you don't and if she decides to sell (and with attitudes such as yours I could see why she might wish to) we may well end up with the sort of benefactor you so richly deserve. I'm very happy to have her as sole owner. It may not always be that way but until she does wrong she's fine by my standards.

Nobody has signed our stars on a whim they have signed them on huge bonus and salary increase to that which we can offer - but you know that dont you?

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.
Everton keep their players - Really? Let's see if you can work through the seasons and see who left Everton against the wishes of their manager - I can't be bother because when someone makes a sweeping statement such as this and then are shown up to be absolutely wrong there arises a credibility gap - You, by being silly have created that gap and anything of interest you may have had to say would also be discounted.
Long Memory is right - insulting Kat, especially when she is unlikely to come on here to defend herself is pretty low. Sometimes in life it is better the devil you know than the devil you don't and if she decides to sell (and with attitudes such as yours I could see why she might wish to) we may well end up with the sort of benefactor you so richly deserve. I'm very happy to have her as sole owner. It may not always be that way but until she does wrong she's fine by my standards.
What everton are not doing are having a firesale of players although they are knocking on the door of Champions League. Each Club in the Prem has sold Players and some they did not wish to. everton like every club have done that and released a couple at a time to balance the books with the high wages they pay.

Rather that CORRECTING SPELLING - you seem to have little passion or interest that possibly we make lose Spider and JRod on top of every other Player going and just interested in the spelling of Fat Cat - Katherina.

GO *** YOURSELF.

It thought it was a legally binding agreement between two parties that is honored, sorry Mr Reed I don't believe anything you say, please leave the Club NOW!

The likelihood of Calum going prompted a lot of comment and Simon says that the 830 comments made was the highest ever. Within 2 hours of the transfer being completed there was 170 postings under the new thread, probably another record, this time for speed. That's how upset fans are now.

Several on here make what I see as reasonable comments. Frankly, now anything that highlights where we are and the dangers which are becoming apparent, gets a thumbs down. Now stop it! Those anticipating serious problems,(as we stand tonight 28 July) MUST all get thumbs UP.

To vote thumbs DOWN on such comments can only be justified by WUMs or those with rose-tinted glasses.

For my money we are back 2 years when I first said our objective was 17th and 42 points or better. Boy, oh boy that really is our objective at the moment unless something big happens.

So banish the thumbs down and accept the reality that this club has a problem. Two big ones, first we have lost too many players and tonight the Telegraph says Brenda has enquired about Jay and we know the Morgan problem is ongoing and THEN there is the Board and especially Les Reed. If he does not know that, then an awful lot here can see it.

They used to say when in a hole stop digging. So, Les stop digging the hole is big enough already.

And to those here who go on about possible success, for God's sake shut-up. You do not know until at least October how it is going to go. None of us do. Let's just hope for better things.

Finally, remember, thumbs DOWN must now be banned. The comments which highlight the problems are posted by the GENUINE Saints'' fans - LIKE ME and please do not forget that.

Offical Complaint and Letter of Concern sent to Southampton FC.
Dear Sir / Madam,

I have been a Southampton supporter all my life. I am a season ticket holder, and have been for years. I'm writing to register an official complaint and express my concerns over the player exodus.

I recently received my new season ticket for the forthcoming season, and now feel that this has been mi sold. If I had known that all my favourite players were to be sold off before the start of the new season: I would have reconsidered my renewal.

I am also extremely upset over what I, and many other loyal and passionate Southampton supporters feel, was being lied to. We were assured that there would be no 'fire-sale' and that this is what has now happened. Also, why has our new Manager no control over which players are sold?

We were promised that all monies from sold players would be reinvested. This patently hasn't happened, and with the new season just a few weeks away now, even if new signings are made, how could the new cheap foreign imports Southampton football club seem to be bringing in be gelled into any semblance of a team?

I feel embarrassed at the moment to be a Southampton supporter. I feel upset that I, and all Southampton supporters have been lied to by the board of Directors - that Hockey coach, and Les Reed.

I would really appreciate an expedient reply in addressing the issues above I have highlighted.

I am a season ticket holder, and have been for years. I'm writing to register an official complaint and express my concerns over the player exodus. I recently received my new season ticket for the forthcoming season, and now feel that this has been mi sold. If I had known that all my favourite players were to be sold off before the start of the new season: I would have reconsidered my renewal. I am also extremely upset over what I, and many other loyal and passionate Southampton supporters feel, was being lied to. We were assured that there would be no 'fire-sale' and that this is what has now happened. Also, why has our new Manager no control over which players are sold? We were promised that all monies from sold players would be reinvested. This patently hasn't happened, and with the new season just a few weeks away now, even if new signings are made, how could the new cheap foreign imports Southampton football club seem to be bringing in be gelled into any semblance of a team? I feel embarrassed at the moment to be a Southampton supporter. I feel upset that I, and all Southampton supporters have been lied to by the board of Directors - that Hockey coach, and Les Reed. I would really appreciate an expedient reply in addressing the issues above I have highlighted. From an extremely disillusioned and upset Southampton Season Ticket Holder. I would appreciate an expedient reply. Thomas[/p][/quote]Doubt if you will get any reply - but let us all know if you do. The situation is unbelievable.

That's all any player is nowadays mate. I didn't want to admit that when this nonsense started but money talks louder in the psyche of the player than any other single factor.
I am sure you are probably right, I am afraid.

Does anyone else also find it disappointing that Koeman has failed to have any influence on persuading any of these players even just to give the club one more year. You would think a player like Chambers could learn a lot from Koeman as a fellow defender but instead he sees no future for himself at Southampton.
I wonder if Rambo and bro have told Les to get rid of anyone sniffling for a move as they are as sick and tired with the cancer going through the club and have decided to cut it out as it shows itself and will rebuild in their mould. The temptation to do so must be great. He has rebuilt sides before and must be confident he can do it again. Remember he said players come and players go and didn't see too concerned about that prospect.

Dear Les
I am writing to tell you, you have hopelessly misjudged the intelligence of Saints fans. Many have at least one "O" level, some have none at all. And do you know what? They can see through you. Oh yes they can, so its no good arguing. They can. Really.

Tell me again, I want to hear it from your own lips again. "We want to keep our best young players."

Let me say that sentence for you. "We want to keep our best young players, (until of course we get a decent offer for them)."

That's the bit you keep missing off Les. But cleverly we put all of our "O" Levels together. It came to three in total, and we worked it out for ourselves.

Aren't we a clever lot!

So give it a rest you condescending tosser, and just tell us the truth! Or don't bother to speak at all, which is probably the best idea. The club is in enough trouble at the moment without you throwing petrol on the flames.

The only reason players and clubs want 5year contracts are the Bosman ruling. If contracts were short they would be run down so that even bigger wages could be obtained. The players like 5 year contracts because they get very well paid even if they get career ending injuries. They also know that no matter how long the contract is they can simply behave like children and throw their toys out of the pram and they will get their move. Obviously the clubs have to try to get players signed up long term because the vultures then have to pay mega bucks.

My take on this is that the so-called CARTEL of top six clubs have agreed to break up the threat of Saints and have just leaned on Arsenal to do their part, which they have just done as part of the deal.

I also wonder whether discreet calls are made to agents of Saints targets saying "Fifty Grand says your player is not interested"

Far fetched?

Oh dear - it would make me laugh if it was not so sad. I cannot believe that the board could be so inept with regard to the clubs future so unfortunately this looks more and more like a systematic plan. It seems anything of value is up for sale. Not sure why LR has made a statement as this has very little upside for him given the circumstances (maybe its ust his job - I guess he must be getting wel paid). The culture and ethos in any organisation comes from the top. It seems very likely LR e al are just following the owners wishes with regard to an ongoing liquidation. I guess the reasons for this will become clear over time. My own view is that it is a lot harder to find a buyer for the smaller franchise PL clubs than many believe particularly at the elevated pricing that most selling owners typically want. I always had fears about the current owners commitment after her fathers untimely death (why would she have any commitment to saints and to a potential "black hole" as many football clubs often become etc). As a business problem it is fascinating to watch – however as a long time supporter it very sad to see the club's PL potential being dismantled (not to mention many fellow supporters hopes and dreams) so quickly.

Well according to the Guardian its a done deal for Scheniderlin and Rodriguez with Spurs and they have agreed contracts all that is left is for the clubs to haggles over fees, Saints supposedly compromising on the 27 million they want cos Morgan wants to go to Spurs.
Shrugs.
Guardian has been no friend of Saints in all this but it has been pretty much spot on about everything so far. they said as the side continues to be asset stripped and said there can barely be a first team squad left.
It seems there is a lot of sceptism everywhere as to whether Saints will re invest in any depth as they have had a lot of money for a month now and have only bought 2 cheap foreign imports by today's standards.
looks like Buroc, Targett, Yoshida, Fonte, Clyne, Cork, Wanyama, Davis Ramirez, tadic and Pelle to start the season at he moment. Wonder how many of them will be here for the start of the season?
Remember five years ago we started in dive 1 with hardly a first team and it took six or seven games before Pardew could sign enough players to make a squad, I did not expect to be the in the same position in the Premiership.
Koeman has been quoted as syaing that any player that doesn't want to pl;ay for the club can go, I don't think he expected it to be so many.

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.

If an employee wants to leave their employer by law cannot refuse to accept their resignation.
So there is no point putting a valuation on a player then. They just need to resign and move wherever they like. Please think just a little before you post.

Apart from losing the Chief Exec, the Manager, three England World Cup players, two of the corner stones of our defence and probably some of our internationals in mid field. He was probably dissappointed at the relatively down beat pre season tour that didn't involve visits to Barcelona or any big club facilities that we are (undoubtedly) trying to emulate.

Les Reed is disliked almost everywhere, he is atypical FA product (and what a joke they are) a beaurocrat with an overblown sense of importance, no England player has anything good to say about him and he has no people skills….

..he ended up in the ridiculously powerful position he occupies only because NC was effectively kicked out and Kat and co thought it was all oh so simple…

Marcus who MADE the family fortune trusted NC, Kat who has never had to earn a penny in her life does not and look how the wheels have come of the bus..

Katarina will not want the abuse coming her way and will sell up or rape us to get 'her' money back….

... unfortunately NC was a one off chairman, he took us to the promised land ahead of schedule, with a massive talent bank, players signed to contracts that allow KL and board plus Les to profit handsomely….

.. some idiot posters on here blame him for a 30 million debt….jesus we sold two players for almost double that, the man was a ruthless genius but he was our godfather and everything seemed possible, I see no way back, KL has lost the trust of the fans as this debacle unfolds as such a few results against us and what were solid foundations become nothing more than a house of cards..

..it is shameful but worse unnecesary, unlike so many other clubs we did not need to reign in, for those who think they are businessmen and understand balancing the books I am a businessman and have earned a few bob, never would I have spurned the opportunity we had when sat on a huge profit from the business already…sheer Swiss greed.

Les, you say you are determined to keep the best young players then you sell them the moment they say they don't see their future here. What does that say about you, your fellow directors and the owner? I'll tell you; it says you have not been able to or not wanted to demonstrate the ambition required to keep ambitious young players at the club. What on earth is going on? You had better sort it out sooner rather than later or this club will slide into oblivion.

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson examines the work Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has cut out for him as his club unloaded five key players.
Football fans have a relationship with their team like no other sport in the world. It's like a family and, by definition, the players that represent it are treated as such and loved accordingly. In almost all cases though, this relationship is a one way street and -- apart from some notable exceptions -- for the players it is only ever temporary.

Fans worship those that pull on their team's shirt as heroes; going to great lengths to show them love and respect in exchange for them using their skills to contribute to the success in the name of the badge. Perhaps those fans are naïve for believing that love and respect would ever be returned.

When clubs go through difficult times it is the fans that suffer, almost exclusively. Players can always find someone new to worship them; fans are stuck with their club.

What is happening at Southampton right now is unprecedented. There have been similar exoduses elsewhere around the globe, but this is surely the first at a club that has no major financial worries. In the past few months, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and now Calum Chambers have left the club, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez expected to soon follow. The best and brightest will ply their trade elsewhere in the coming season.

For a supporter of Southampton, this is very difficult to accept. Right now it feels like the Saints' "family" is being ripped apart and nobody even knows why. In every case there are justifiable reasons for the moves, all going to "bigger" clubs in a "better" position than Saints, but where will it end? And why could it not have been prevented?

The trouble with not knowing the full extent of the plan behind the scenes at the club is that everyone has a voice, and with it an opinion. All sorts of wild theories and accusations have spread around the internet which promotes further unrest amongst an already worried fanbase. A very good team is disintegrating and there is seemingly nothing that the supporters can do about it.

To make matters worse at least two of the players were so desperate to get away that they were prepared to completely burn their bridges with the people who had idolised them to achieve it. Underhand tactics, childish interview comments and ultimatums meant that those particular splits ended less than amicably. As the departed players are insensitively congratulating each other on social media for the moves they so "deserve," it is another kick in the teeth for the people whose support has paid their wages.

Saints fans have had it worse of course, but perhaps that's why this current situation has hit home so hard. A club seemingly on the up, a lot of fans bought into Nicola Cortese's folly talk of Champions League which has in turn raised expectations to an unachievable level. The players perhaps bought into it too -- perhaps furthering their hunger for the competition when it didn't materialise on the south coast.

The big question is, are the board more than happy to be letting the players go -- at admittedly extortionate rates -- or are they really doing all they can to keep them? Either way there is an issue behind the scenes: the board are cashing in, or the players are unhappy. Neither is a place the club want to be in.

The third, and also plausible, option is that the Saints squad are the ones with the impetus. At a time when their stock has never been so highly valued, is it possible that the players themselves chased big pay rises and career advancement on the back of a fantastic season?

Football lost its soul a long time ago, sold to the highest bidder, and today's modern player is nothing short of a hired gun who will work for he who can provide the most coin. The trick is to have no expectations of them at all, and to treat them as such. Don't get their names put on the back of your shirt, don't have your picture taken with them and don't fall into the trap that their badge kissing means anything more than the finishing move in the act of a show pony.

These people aren't your family and they aren't your friends, they are your employees, and often other people can pay them more. All Saints fans can hope for is that the board have a masterplan up their sleeves, otherwise this could be a long old season, and neither the new manager nor those who pay to watch the side week in and week out deserve it.

Read on a Prem Transfer Internet site about reasons to be cheerful - they included some of our Starlets including Chambers.

SOLD FOR ONLY £12 MILLION - just because arsenal felt they may need some cover at CB - WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE - NO WONDER FANS ARE ANGRY.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

Just because a Player (and all do) has aspirations to more - that is NOT A REASON TO SELL him on - MUPPET SFC BOARD.

everton KEEP THEIR PLAYERS - depute the same pressures but who have we got ....

FAT KAT - and getting FATTER by the day !!

SPINELESS RALPH - who won't say boo to a ghost - let alone be Chairman of a Premier League Football Team - absolute WASTE OF A SALARY !!

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ....... 0/10 and that's being generous.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.
Lard arse
Miss Piggy - Lard Arse - it all the same.

ONE FAT CAT / KAT getting fatter by the day. COYR+WS
You really are an idiot
All our TOP PLAYERS are being sold and KATHERINA - KRUEGER- AND REED all have a part share and responsibility.

KAT could have stopped it all - but it seems the bank balance rules while the Club is destroyed.

With J Rod gone - and he was another Option for goals - we are only headed one way - THE CHAMPIONSHIP - PUT MONEY ON IT.

Instead of directing your FRUSTRATION and ANGER on ringing up or writing to SFC or getting down to St Mary's - you decide to target me.

NOT A SMART MOVE - I'M PRETTY **** OFF WITH FAT KAT - KRUEGER DEALING GETTING RID OF JROD AND LES REED ...

GO F*CK YOURSELF Enrico and SUPPORT THE SAINTS WITH SOME PASSION. COYR+WS
As a fee-paying season ticket holder who has clearly watched Saints for longer than you, I care as much as the next Saints fan but, unlike you, choose not to tell others I care more than them. I am pragmatic and try to see the big picture, which means sometimes I sit on the fence and sometimes I get cross!

I'm just wondering how many of you would've paid 4 times the amount you pay for tickets and merchandise. Because that's what we'd have to do in order to pay the wages these greedy players wanted. Shaw for instance £100000 a week? This is why the players have been sold at top dollar we could've held on to them until their contracts expired and got nothing which would've left Ermmmmmmm nothing to replace them with. We are bringing in and promoting through the youth team and transfer market players at the right price wage and ability from what I'm seeing and yes finding the right players takes time! We know other players will arrive or else the Kat is selling the club theory doesn't work as a club with no team has no value.I for one can't wait to see these high paid want aways sit on a bench for seasons getting the odd capital 1 cup game here and there devaluing by the minute. Come on you lot support the club don't slate it and wonder why we can't attract players because they need to see that there is a reason to come and that's because of the fantastic fans we have and an awesome club.

I think the best thing to do is close the football club and operate purely as an academy supplying other teams with players. No point in pretending to have a real football team. Just make sfc into a footballer merchant like Elliott's the builders merchant or jayhards the plumbers merchant.

I am writing to tell you, you have hopelessly misjudged the intelligence of Saints fans. Many have at least one "O" level, some have none at all. And do you know what? They can see through you. Oh yes they can, so its no good arguing. They can. Really.

Tell me again, I want to hear it from your own lips again. "We want to keep our best young players."

Let me say that sentence for you. "We want to keep our best young players, (until of course we get a decent offer for them)."

That's the bit you keep missing off Les. But cleverly we put all of our "O" Levels together. It came to three in total, and we worked it out for ourselves.

Aren't we a clever lot!

So give it a rest you condescending tosser, and just tell us the truth! Or don't bother to speak at all, which is probably the best idea. The club is in enough trouble at the moment without you throwing petrol on the flames.
Thanks George for giving me a good laugh. I can't tell you how lonely it can be for an ageing, greying (sorry, no longer grey, now bald), Saints supporter in this outpost of Empire!

We do not need to sell the youngsters/ so we sell 2 massive prospects in the game today.
Les just come out and say Kat is not selling Southampton FC at least we will know what's going on then.
I hate to say it but we will probably go down as we now have to build a new team for this division.

Well if rumour is true, and lets face it nowadays it normally is, MP wants MS and Jrod for 45 mil, thats 137 mil in the bank on player sales alone. That means we can afford to buy more international talent, scouted by our world class scouting team and pay decent wages mixed with a sprinkling of the finest young english talent anywhere in the country, whom can all work together and build and EARN european football , I for one am excited by the changes I think with the team we had 6/7/8 in the premier league was the most realistic goal. I reserve judgement until I am able to make a more informed and accurate opinion based on facts and the season is underway.
I know alot of fans are quite emotional at the moment and have different views on what is happening, I know that you are convinced your right, but remember there is a distinct possibilty that you could be wrong. The proof they say is in the pudding. Remember we have had situations before, we came up to the premier league with what was at the time, a decent championship side and to the disappiontment of alot of fans we didnt really invest alot in new more experienced players but we brought in a few youngsters from the acedemy and we turned our good championship players into great premier and international players, we also screamed and shouted when the decision was made to relieve Nigel Adkins of his position at the club and bring in a manager that was unknown, but again it turned out to be a good move for the club.

GET F**KED

Sitting on the Fence is what you do. ..... YOU SAID IT !!!

Typing FAT CAT / KAT is an accurate description of a business person collecting lots of money.

Why the Fire sale of Players when previous statements by Reed and Krueger contradict this.

I am writing to tell you, you have hopelessly misjudged the intelligence of Saints fans. Many have at least one "O" level, some have none at all. And do you know what? They can see through you. Oh yes they can, so its no good arguing. They can. Really.

Tell me again, I want to hear it from your own lips again. "We want to keep our best young players."

Let me say that sentence for you. "We want to keep our best young players, (until of course we get a decent offer for them)."

That's the bit you keep missing off Les. But cleverly we put all of our "O" Levels together. It came to three in total, and we worked it out for ourselves.

Aren't we a clever lot!

So give it a rest you condescending tosser, and just tell us the truth! Or don't bother to speak at all, which is probably the best idea. The club is in enough trouble at the moment without you throwing petrol on the flames.
Thanks George for giving me a good laugh. I can't tell you how lonely it can be for an ageing, greying (sorry, no longer grey, now bald), Saints supporter in this outpost of Empire!

When I get to that level of sarcasm I have touched real anger. Glad it gave you some light relief.

P.S. We share a common hair style as well as both supporting the best football club in the world.

Les just come out and say Kat is not selling Southampton FC at least we will know what's going on then.
I hate to say it but we will probably go down as we now have to build a new team for this division.

Mr Read presented to me and my colleagues at a corporate a few months ago and, despite boring the non football fans to death, seemed quite impressive. He explained that we have to live within our means. He said we have to be commercially aware. He said we had untapped commercial opportunities that we hadn't utilised because of the speed with which we achieved our Premier League goal. It made a lot of sense.
Now I am reassessing his comments. I think he came across as a decent businessman but a football man? No, I don't think so. He now comes across as unfeasibly naiive. Does he not know that you don't have to sell a player every time his agent says jump, despite a long-term contract?
Does he not see the irony in justifying sales by saying it's fine because we have given new contracts to the youth team players, as if that should reassure, when he is happily caving in to the sale of 19 year-olds who are signed to contracts with us until 2017? What value a contract? Oh for an old-time Lawrie-style manager who rules the roost and can remind players of their place. On that subject, anyone heard much from RK lately? Must be the quietest new manager we have ever had at the club. A brilliant footballer and tactician I was delighted to see arrive. Why so quiet? There must be something to say to the paying public, surely.

Touch a nerve did I? How's that for a clever remark?

I contributed by paying for my season ticket thanx very much.

I don't need to justify my posts or anything to you - wouldn't lower myself to it. Nobody's nit-picking you, I'm actually calling you out for what you obviously are:
ignorant and quite honestly, embarrassing.

If an employee wants to leave their employer by law cannot refuse to accept their resignation.
So there is no point putting a valuation on a player then. They just need to resign and move wherever they like. Please think just a little before you post.

There is no fire sale. A fire sale is when a troubled company has to sell assets cheaply to raise urgently needed funds, these players leaving Saints are not being sold cheaply.

There's still 3 weeks before the start of the season. If we reinvest the money we've made in 3 or 4 quality players and break our transfer record, everything will be on track again.

We (well, mainly the fickle fans!) need to stay calm and save judgement until 1st September.

Stay classy Southampton!

Rules designed to ensure that the big clubs continue to monopolise top spots are the reason why so many Saints have gone marching out, writes Dave Kidd. We all feel like Southampton fans these days. Any of us who chose to follow a football club from outside of England’s top six or seven, will be feeling their pain. Even Portsmouth supporters will be empathising. Laughing, but still empathising.
Many of us have experienced something similar, the rest all realise that the only ‘dream’ their club can now pursue is that of finishing eighth in the Premier League and then seeing their best players leave.
As Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers follow Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and manager Maurico Pochettino out of the St Mary’s exit door, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez likely to follow, there has been much anger aimed at owner Katharina Liebherr and chairman Ralph Krueger. And like most Premier League directors, they’re not exactly big on communicating with those they expect to buy their season tickets and replica kits.
Liebherr is an accidental owner, who inherited the Saints when her billionaire father Markus died, and Krueger used to be an ice hockey coach, so they were probably not best qualified to police the shark-infested Solent, once Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and especially Liverpool started scenting blood.
The new manager Ronald Koeman insists, ‘We’re not a selling club’ because it’s mandatory for everybody in football to say that. Nobody has ever said, ‘Yep, we’re a selling club’ – even when they’re selling all of their best players.
But Southampton certainly haven’t staged a fire sale. They were not actively seeking to off-load players. Chambers' departure to Arsenal brings their summer earnings to a staggering £92million, much of which will be reinvested. But Koeman must conjure a miracle if the Saints are to match last season’s eighth-place, 56-point finish.
Yet despite their naivety, what were Liebherr and Krueger actually supposed to do? Even if former chairman Nicola Cortese had stayed? Even if they possessed the ambition to have a tilt at the top four? The days of one-club loyalists like Matt Le Tissier are long gone. To have stood any chance of keeping Shaw, Lallana, Lovren and Chambers, they would have had to offer six-figure weekly wages to each, as well spending vast sums on new recruits to prove their ‘ambition’. And even then the lure of instant Champions League football elsewhere would still probably be too much.
Who can honestly blame individual players? It’s difficult to take Jose Mourinho seriously when he brings up UEFA’s Financial Fair Play – given how much Chelsea spent during his first Stamford Bridge reign. But when he says that shelling out £27m for Shaw and paying him more than £5m a year in wages would have ‘killed’ Chelsea in terms of FFP, he is not entirely wrong.
If Southampton had started bandying around huge transfer fees and contracts to Shaw & co and then qualified for Europe, they would have faced punitive UEFA sanctions.
FFP is designed to keep the elite in place and the likes of Southampton out.
Even though the Saints are a well-supported club who boast a model academy which produced the world’s most expensive player in Gareth Bale, they are not welcome.
The Champions League was formed because UEFA feared a breakaway European Super League, and FFP was designed to make damned sure the door is double-locked to any potential new Roman Abramovich or Sheikh Mansour.
The rest of us are supposed to be scared of a European Super League too. Even though it is the obvious endgame, whether a decade or two down the line.
Yet why should we be fearful?
If Liverpool, the Manchester clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal all disappeared into some wondrous Gazprom-sponsored world, they’d still pick off promising players from the likes of Southampton, but at least the remaining English football league would be competitive again.
Southampton could dream of being champions of England and so could Fulham, Middlesbrough, Bolton, Blackburn, Charlton and Birmingham, who have all reached the rarefied heights of the Premier League’s top 10 in recent years only to fall foul of gravity.
As the Sky Sports adverts start roaring to herald another new season for the richest League on Earth, and everyone pretends to ignore England’s embarrassing World Cup campaign like some **** in an elevator, we’re all expected to be full of excited anticipation.
Yet not at Southampton.
And not at many clubs either.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.
If Katerina does leave the club,believe me, Saints will be the big time loser,trust me.
Please try and use better vocabulary.
Lard arse
Miss Piggy - Lard Arse - it all the same.

ONE FAT CAT / KAT getting fatter by the day. COYR+WS
You really are an idiot
All our TOP PLAYERS are being sold and KATHERINA - KRUEGER- AND REED all have a part share and responsibility.

KAT could have stopped it all - but it seems the bank balance rules while the Club is destroyed.

With J Rod gone - and he was another Option for goals - we are only headed one way - THE CHAMPIONSHIP - PUT MONEY ON IT.

Instead of directing your FRUSTRATION and ANGER on ringing up or writing to SFC or getting down to St Mary's - you decide to target me.

NOT A SMART MOVE - I'M PRETTY **** OFF WITH FAT KAT - KRUEGER DEALING GETTING RID OF JROD AND LES REED ...

GO F*CK YOURSELF Enrico and SUPPORT THE SAINTS WITH SOME PASSION. COYR+WS
As a fee-paying season ticket holder who has clearly watched Saints for longer than you, I care as much as the next Saints fan but, unlike you, choose not to tell others I care more than them. I am pragmatic and try to see the big picture, which means sometimes I sit on the fence and sometimes I get cross!

When I do get cross I try not to show it through mindless, ignorant insults.

However I have no qualms about showing my passion for this club by taking you to task over your pathetic name calling - if you shouted any of that out at St Marys I would hope and expect that you would get banned from the ground and I would also have no hesitation in fronting you up about it.
GET F**KED

Sitting on the Fence is what you do. ..... YOU SAID IT !!!

Typing FAT CAT / KAT is an accurate description of a business person collecting lots of money.

Why the Fire sale of Players when previous statements by Reed and Krueger contradict this.

TRY AND PUT YOUR ENERGY AND FRUSTRATION is something meaningful instead of falling into the Trap like other posters of nick picking other posters.

Is that all you can contribute today enrico - no letter to the board - no visit to St Mary's - no email to les - no ticket office telephone call - no contact with DE ....

As I say .... GET F*CKED enrico .... enjoy putting some clever remark in the next few weeks as the sole contribution to the latest crisis at SFC.

LOL
Touch a nerve did I? How's that for a clever remark?

I contributed by paying for my season ticket thanx very much.

I don't need to justify my posts or anything to you - wouldn't lower myself to it. Nobody's nit-picking you, I'm actually calling you out for what you obviously are:
ignorant and quite honestly, embarrassing.

Oh and great defence of your 'fat-cat' jibe - you almost had me - oh wait, no, you fooled nobody.
Hey - get some sleep W@nker - LOL

Another one that would still be clapping when all the Players are sold and we are being relegated.

At least you've showed your cards and everyone knows what a waste of space you are !! LOL
And what will you be doing if we get relegated? Stood with a smug smile on your face saying I told you so? I expect so. I'll be crying. I won't care whether I was right or wrong in 'guessing' what is going on. It won't be the most important thing to me.

I am sure you are probably right, I am afraid.

Does anyone else also find it disappointing that Koeman has failed to have any influence on persuading any of these players even just to give the club one more year. You would think a player like Chambers could learn a lot from Koeman as a fellow defender but instead he sees no future for himself at Southampton.
I agree. Koeman has done very little so far to persuade me that he has the ability or enthusiasm to manage SFC.

There is no fire sale. A fire sale is when a troubled company has to sell assets cheaply to raise urgently needed funds, these players leaving Saints are not being sold cheaply.
Sales = an encouraging 92 Million according to SKY.

Add to that Jrod and Spider.

Patient Saints Fans wait as lower league Les Reed secures 2 signings and £20 Million spent. COYR+WS

Total LACK of leadership by Southampton Board. Utterly naive. This Board must be out of their mind completely. That team took 4 years to build and it has gone in a single transfer window - which has not yet finished- and it appears there is more bad news to come.

I am not going to be going down to St Mary's at all this year - all we will be watching are 3 or 4 players and large bags of money

There has never been a time when 3 players from one club went to another competing club. Neither has a club lost so many players in a single window and come back from the loss

SOLD FOR ONLY £12 MILLION - just because arsenal felt they may need some cover at CB - WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE - NO WONDER FANS ARE ANGRY.

If you went round the everton Players including Barklay and asked who wants a Pay Rise or Win Trophies or earn £100,000 a week - the answer would be ALL HANDS IN THE AIR.

Just because a Player (and all do) has aspirations to more - that is NOT A REASON TO SELL him on - MUPPET SFC BOARD.

FAT KAT - and getting FATTER by the day !!

SPINELESS RALPH - who won't say boo to a ghost - let alone be Chairman of a Premier League Football Team - absolute WASTE OF A SALARY !!

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ....... 0/10 and that's being generous.

INCOMPETENT (MUST TRY HARDER) LES - 2 signings in and ultra low bids in to secure more Players knowing he has no chance of getting anywhere - but that SAINTS FANS is Les Reed - a USELESS ******

I have been into St Mary's with a COPY of the Daily echo and back page FANS FURY to register my protest at recent events and Player Departures.

IF THERE IS ANY ORGANISED PROTEST OR MEETING - I can assure you that not only will I be there - but I will give 150% to getting the message across.

ONLY WHEN the Player Sales STOP - We have the signings on our Shopping list and a commitment to the Medium Term Future of the Club which is a move to 45,000 STONEHAM or the everton model with a STADIUM EXTENSION at St Mary's will a lot of Fans be satisfied.

LES - if you are reading this - OWN UP that you are a USELESS INDIVIDUAL - PACK YOUR BAGS AND TAKE SPINELESS KRUEGER WITH YOU !!

FAT KAT - STOP storing Money for the sake of it like your other businesses and put money back into the Club including planning to improve on our present position to consolidate SFC as ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY - even wet spam as moving to a 50,000 Stadium and showing progression and ambition.

COYR+WS
Please Foot Soldier,would you kindly refrain from using the disgusting words, Fat Kat.
You might have a grievance,which I can understand,but that sort of language is totally unacceptable and very disrespectful to me, and I am sure it will be to any self respecting person ,thank you.

Please try and use better vocabulary.

All our TOP PLAYERS are being sold and KATHERINA - KRUEGER- AND REED all have a part share and responsibility.

KAT could have stopped it all - but it seems the bank balance rules while the Club is destroyed.

With J Rod gone - and he was another Option for goals - we are only headed one way - THE CHAMPIONSHIP - PUT MONEY ON IT.

Instead of directing your FRUSTRATION and ANGER on ringing up or writing to SFC or getting down to St Mary's - you decide to target me.

Sitting on the Fence is what you do. ..... YOU SAID IT !!!

Typing FAT CAT / KAT is an accurate description of a business person collecting lots of money.

Why the Fire sale of Players when previous statements by Reed and Krueger contradict this.

TRY AND PUT YOUR ENERGY AND FRUSTRATION is something meaningful instead of falling into the Trap like other posters of nick picking other posters.

Is that all you can contribute today enrico - no letter to the board - no visit to St Mary's - no email to les - no ticket office telephone call - no contact with DE ....

As I say .... GET F*CKED enrico .... enjoy putting some clever remark in the next few weeks as the sole contribution to the latest crisis at SFC.

LOL
Touch a nerve did I? How's that for a clever remark?

I contributed by paying for my season ticket thanx very much.

I don't need to justify my posts or anything to you - wouldn't lower myself to it. Nobody's nit-picking you, I'm actually calling you out for what you obviously are:
ignorant and quite honestly, embarrassing.

Oh and great defence of your 'fat-cat' jibe - you almost had me - oh wait, no, you fooled nobody.
Hey - get some sleep W@nker - LOL

Another one that would still be clapping when all the Players are sold and we are being relegated.

At least you've showed your cards and everyone knows what a waste of space you are !! LOL
And what will you be doing if we get relegated? Stood with a smug smile on your face saying I told you so? I expect so. I'll be crying. I won't care whether I was right or wrong in 'guessing' what is going on. It won't be the most important thing to me.
Bored zzzzzz

this is not about you or me Enrico ... this is about the sale of all our Players - all our goals in the Team - and all our hopes of a fantastic season.

I will be getting Legal Advice and getting on to the Ticket Office tomorrow.

There is no other way - there is no organised protest - Sky gave Illingsworth about 10 seconds of air time as he commented on the Chambers Sale.

Most Fans seem paralysed and not able to do anything.

If an employee wants to leave their employer by law cannot refuse to accept their resignation.
So there is no point putting a valuation on a player then. They just need to resign and move wherever they like. Please think just a little before you post.

There is clearly a difference between "staff" and somebody who has signed a contract for a specific period of time. Most employment contracts state a time period which must elapse. IE one month notice or three months notice. If a contracted player could simply leave why have Manure just paid us £30million when they clearly didn't need to pay us anything. Probably best not to tell them. They might want it back.

If an employee wants to leave their employer by law cannot refuse to accept their resignation.
So there is no point putting a valuation on a player then. They just need to resign and move wherever they like. Please think just a little before you post.

There is clearly a difference between "staff" and somebody who has signed a contract for a specific period of time. Most employment contracts state a time period which must elapse. IE one month notice or three months notice. If a contracted player could simply leave why have Manure just paid us £30million when they clearly didn't need to pay us anything. Probably best not to tell them. They might want it back.
So if Lovren had a£20m trigger clause in his contract how could his sale have been prevented by the club?

football contracts don't come under employment law in the same way that football clubs don't come under tax laws, ie football debts have to be pad before tax debts, poopey are the experts at that!
a footballer cannot resign from an agreed contract. thi is why footballers are treated as assets.
a club can also not sack a layer except for extreme circumstances. drug abuse and being sent down have been used in the last few years.

Steve in Swindon says...

So 5 key players already gone and Spider & JRod to go by the end of the week no doubt. That's 7 in total.

Anybody really expect Wanyama and Clyne to be here by the start of the season? Boruc will also want out as he knows we are looking to replace him.

Fonte & Cork appear not to want to sign new contracts. Where is this going to end?

Is there anybody left who actually wants to be at Saints next year - it doesn't look like it does - and why not?

More importantly, how on earth do you entice new players to sign for a club that appears to have zero ambition and has now become a total laughing stock (mind you some of the jokes on the internet tonight about Saints are extremely funny - but hurtful and truthful!)

Couple of questions about our 'leaders' (I use that word very loosely):

When Kreuger came in, all he talked about was openness, communication and his ability to market the club. Nobody has heard a bloody peep from him since the firesale started (Great communication skills Ralphie boy). Has he already done a runner? And his wonderful marketing skills - a shirt sponsorship deal with a company that nobody has ever heard of!

And then there is Reed who wasn't going to sell anybody (unless the price was right) and is certainly doing a great job! He keeps telling us that he's working on lots of deals (Les, the season starts in a couple of weeks by the way) but who the hell will want to get on board the bus now that all of the wheels have fallen off? Maybe a mercenary or two?

Don't understand how other clubs can get deals done in days but it seems to take Saints forever?
