    Interesting blog re Saints, transfers and FFP
    Thanks for this Costa Baz. This is a superb read and really puts things into perspective. It is good to know that he is a Saints fan and will continue to make these sort of blogs in future. The DE should copy these blog on here. It was even missed under the Southampton "News Now" site. Anyway, it is essential reading for all Saints fans and, hopefully, it will reduce the amount of unjustified and misdirected criticism the club has endured in the last few weeks.
    I don't think the criticism was unjustified, the club have been saying precious little to give any fans the reassurances they craved, so in that vacuum the press has fuelled the fans interest and the criticism has resulted.
    It has taken some of the more thoughtful posters, and Costa's blogger, to provide a little of the reasoning behind what actually might be happening at the club. So I don't blame the posters, not even the more outspoken ones, I think this board needs at some point soon to provide a more detailed explanation of why we are where we are or risk fulfilling Seed's assertion that they don't know what they are doing.
    Queue the chant normally levelled at referees, '...you don't know what you're doing...' could be what we sing at the first home match directed towards those in the chairman's box!
    Good shout Snapper,if the explanation is so simple,and is beyond the boards control,the only thing I would say,is why can't they just come out and say that is the reason for what is going on,instead of saying one thing and doing the opposite,and being "economical" with the truth all the time.
    All that does is increase speculation that it is all being done with the sale of the club in mind,otherwise,why the silence?"

RUMOUR MILL, August 5 - Spurs offer Romanian defender to Saints as makeweight in Schneiderlin deal

Vlad Chiriches in action for Tottenham last season

TOTTENHAM have reportedly offered Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches to Saints as a makeweight in any deal to sign Morgan Schneiderlin.

Spurs only signed the 24-year-old centre half from Steaua Bucharest last summer for £8.5m, and he went on to play 24 times for the London club in all competitions.

There is also speculation today that Louis Van Gaal will consider selling striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexican international has continually been linked with Saints all summer, even before Ronald Koeman’s arrival as manager.

The 26-year-old has scored 37 Premier League goals for United in 48 starts plus 53 sub appearances in his four seasons at Old Trafford.
