Saints weighing up second offer for Leeds right-back Sam Byram

Saints are deciding whether to increase their offer for Sam Byram after having an initial bid turned down by Leeds.

The 20-year-old right back, who has come through the ranks at Elland Road and broke into the first team at the start of 2012/13, was the subject of an offer in the region of £4.5m.

Saints are looking for back-up to Nathaniel Clyne after selling Calum Chambers to Arsenal for £16m.

But there is serious doubt as to whether the club will want to offer more for Byram, who has made 70 Championship appearances for Leeds, with several other right back targets also being considered.

When asked about the Byram bid, Ronald Koeman said: “We are after that, we lost Chambers to Arsenal, it was a player we had on the list and it’s true that we had a bid for him, yes.

“What I heard was that Leeds didn’t accept it.”

On the potential of another offer, he replied: “I don’t know. I am not doing the bids for players.”

Koeman again reiterated the club’s interest in left-sided centre halves Marcos Rojo of Sporting Lisbon and Steaua Bucharest’s Florin Gardos.

However, deals have yet to be struck for either of them to come in and fill the gap left by Dejan Lovren.

“That’s true, we are interested because we lost Lovren and we need a player in that position. These are two players who are very interesting for us,” said Koeman.

Rojo, 24, has previously been linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Juventus this summer after impressing in the World Cup for Argentina.

Gardos, 25, has won 12 international caps for Romania after making his debut three years ago.

Meanwhile, Koeman also reiterated the club’s stance over Morgan Schneiderlin, who was left out of the weekend friendly against Germans Bayer Leverkusen as he continues to push for a move to Tottenham and a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino.

Saints do not want to sell the midfielder – having already sold five players for big money this summer – and are waiting to see how he handles a return to training today.

“His future is in the club, he is a player of Southampton and Monday morning there will be the next training session,” insisted Koeman.

“We expect him for that training session and he will continue like the player that he was in the past, and nothing more.”

Koeman also admitted he is pleased to generally be answering more questions on signings than sales at the moment.

“It’s always nicer,” he smiled.

“Sometimes you need players who move because it brings a new ambition in the team.

“We lost a lot, but we’ve brought some in.”

I think Morgans going to have to bite the bullet this time. But he'll be gone in January. It's now about face saving.

Lots of big names still being bandied about. Are we really going for Hernandez... really ?? Can anyone see that happening. Yeah right.

The other names, especially Gardos are all very exciting but I wonder if we are just being used by agents to fuel a bidding war.

Ron says he has nothing to do with bidding. Fair enough, but if we do come out of this transfer window with a top quality striker and centre back then a lot of people wiill have to doff their cap to Reed.

Let him do his job, then judge.

It's going to be tough to get Rojo in. United are also interested. Big signings like that happen towards the end of the transfer window, the player will obviously hold out for the best deal he can get - at the biggest club he can go to.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!

Hernandez, Rojo, and Schelotto have all said they do not want to join us.
Therefore the club should walk away, trying to convince these footballers to join us when they don't really want to come will end in disaster.

The target was always one centerback to replace Fonte, now we need to two, after Lovren left....
We now, could find ourselves in a panic buy situation, paying way-over the odds for someone who might not fit.
The club has had plenty of time but have gone after midfielders, right backs and a goalkeeper... positions where we were generally covered.

I've said this time and again but I'm still very surprised they don't try Cork out in central defence - surely he's got to have been worth a try with our other options seemingly so poor. It could be that what we've searching for in a partner for Fonte has been there all the time.

I think he'd be commanding and I believe he's suited to that side of defence. May not work, but I'm just surprised it hasn't even better tried in pre-season or prior to that. If Wenger thinks Chambers can switch I'd say Cork is much more of a natural centre defender physique, plus it's a crying shame for him to be in the bench when we are short in a position he could fill.

Correct - we're woefully short of options - you can't sell four strikers and only bring in one - arguably the most important position on the pitch to have options for. At this stage I'd like someone of high quality, plus maybe a Connor Wickham style signing for the bench. We need two at least, even taking into account J-Rod.

I'm all for bringing through the kids, but you have to make sure they don't come under too much pressure too early - wouldn't want us to be stacking the onus on Sam until he's had the chance to be slowly blooded.

Same with Taggart - you can't just have him as the senior left back with no cover or option for resting him because one bad result can drain confidence.

For me, we shouldn't get too hung up on next week's result. Anfield always a tough place to go and anything from there is a bonus. After that we have a nice run of fixtures that will give us a good chance to see where we are.

On watching Chambers have a very good game yesterday, I hope the board now complete the 3 needed signings in a hurry.
Of course Leeds and the other clubs are holding out for more, as we did. They also know how much money we have in the bank.

Bite the bullet, pay a little bit more and ensure we get some of the remaining quality on offer.

The extra money we pay will be offset by the higher league position and extra cash, and the extra punters turning up - and extra cash.

Who knows, if we buy quality, then the player in question might even be worth more money next year.

No thanks. I'd rather strive for greatness. Sensibly, of course. But with our youth set-up then why not go for it - starting with Rojo and Hernandez.

If we have to pay over-the-odds for these two, then so be it. It's not going to bankrupt us to buy two excellent players, both of who are young and would have great sell-on value (this is Honest Harry's downfall, always spanking a fortune on past-it players who, if they flop, you can't offload).

We can never know for sure, but my belief is that buying these two, even at top-market prices, would do wonders for the club above-and-beyond their personal performances on the pitch. It'd be a true display of intent. It'd get more out of our existing players. It'd encourage Clyne and Spider to stay. It'd make future buys more likely to join.

Les et al - let's make it happen.

Parkers not the future admittedly but I feel could fit into our style of play and help bring youth thru like jimmy case did.
Would Hernandez take a cut in wages? Big clubs sell players for a reason, they're not good enough. Why buy them, pay extortionate wages and have them sulk because they're no longer at a big club.

The club has had plenty of time but have gone after midfielders, right backs and a goalkeeper... positions where we were generally covered.

I think he'd be commanding and I believe he's suited to that side of defence. May not work, but I'm just surprised it hasn't even better tried in pre-season or prior to that. If Wenger thinks Chambers can switch I'd say Cork is much more of a natural centre defender physique, plus it's a crying shame for him to be in the bench when we are short in a position he could fill.
Cork is wasted on the bench, his old man hasn't been happy about it by reading his tweets.

Jack Corks old man -Alan Cork-is trying to do the same with Jack. Hopefully Jack is more streetwise than Luke and will realise that he should be his own man and that his future lies with Saints.

If I remember correctly (and there is of course no guarantee of that), he was holding out for a move to Cardiff and higher wages. We offered more money to Celtic, and they only gave him permission to speak to us. Even then, I think it took a while for him to agree.

The big difference this season and the last FIVE is going to be confidence, we have been on a roll for so long that aside from losing players who were part of the feelgood factor we also may lose the confidence that went with it..

We have not improved our goalscoring ability, we have not improved our chance ratio, we have gone backwards on speed and pressing and lost our best defender…add to this a slide in results and holy 5hit.

I log on everyday hoping for serious signs of improvement in areas were we all know we have problems and nothing…..this is not about being a neg it is about being seriously worried.

Hello SammyNoVotes!

How are your bestest mate Dame Edna and all your lovely red and white gladdies today there at the Nottarf Krap gladdy farm in deepest Queensland?

I see you are saying that we would all like to write our own reviews. But we can't all be like you, SammyNoVotes. That would be no fun at all, as your PMT must be such a trial for you. We know that it causes you to love voting yourself lots and lots of wonderful "WUMs up," so it comes as absolutely no surprise that you have given yourself the idea of writing your own reviews. I bet you'll soon start talking to yourself and also giving yourself answers! You truly do have all our sympathy.

I am already, as promised, giving you an honest "WUM's up" for each of your posts on threads about your beloved Saints, otherwise you will probably feel very deprived, then yet again start pretending to be aggressive towards all your many, many thousands of fellow Saints fans. I can so easily picture you practicing swinging your pink handbag around. What surprises me is that you haven't yet got a red and white one!

Anyway dear, I should now let you get on with being taken for a walk by SuperSaintSammy2Head
s, your red and white two headed wombat, otherwise neither of you will know whether you are coming or hoeing those gladdies!

Bye bye SammyNoVotes, bye bye.

Tend to agree with Gaz on this one. The players we've had to convince haven't been great hits overall (Gaston, Lovren OK a success but has ditched us in a bad way, Osvaldo), plus it is no coincidence that they are big earners, possibly convinced by the extra notes.

I'd like to see some motivated hungry players who feel excited to put on the shirt and if that means going for less fashionable names, all well and good.

Tend to agree with Gaz on this one. The players we've had to convince haven't been great hits overall (Gaston, Lovren OK a success but has ditched us in a bad way, Osvaldo), plus it is no coincidence that they are big earners, possibly convinced by the extra notes.

I'd like to see some motivated hungry players who feel excited to put on the shirt and if that means going for less fashionable names, all well and good.
Good point

It's going to be tough to get Rojo in. United are also interested. Big signings like that happen towards the end of the transfer window, the player will obviously hold out for the best deal he can get - at the biggest club he can go to.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!
100% agree about Ron Vlaar - I won't fully repeat the various posts I've put on recent Echo threads about him. The Rojo deal is complicated by the 3rd party business interest. If (and it's a big if) Rojo's agent and the overseas media report are correct, then it looks like our second increased 17m euros offer was rejected but it seems that we might only need to go to 20m euros (+ acceptable terms) to get the deal done. Saints seem to be involved in many potential deals. Whilst we don't want to pay too much, Les is obviously aware of the limited time left but we need to be patient. I'm sure we will secure some of these deals this week and get the quality players we still need to plug the gaps and strengthen our squad. There is a load of crap reporting and rumours out there, some are totally fabricated, while others are leaked by the agents to try to up the interest and the price. I think that the recent comments on the Hernandez deal are an example of this. We shall see. Probably 99% of the negotiations are kept behind closed doors - as it should be. Equally 99% of the criticism of Les Reed and the board is based on complete guesswork and speculative assumptions. Judge them on September 2nd - not now.

The big difference this season and the last FIVE is going to be confidence, we have been on a roll for so long that aside from losing players who were part of the feelgood factor we also may lose the confidence that went with it..

We have not improved our goalscoring ability, we have not improved our chance ratio, we have gone backwards on speed and pressing and lost our best defender…add to this a slide in results and holy 5hit.

I log on everyday hoping for serious signs of improvement in areas were we all know we have problems and nothing…..this is not about being a neg it is about being seriously worried.
I agree with you warrens, I have been posting on hear expressing the same worries.

From what I saw on Saturday our new players all looked OK but not one of them was as good as the ones who have left, early days I accept.

I too am sad that RonKo does not look like continuing with the high tempo pressing game that did us so well last season.

We are SCREAMING out for a top Goalscorer and at least one top quality CB urgently.

The core of the team looked weak to me but nothing that 4 or 5 top signings would not sort out.

We MUST start signing BETTER quality players to improve the first 11 on the pitch.

It sounds as though the players we are rumored to be after would be good, but convincing that required quality of player to come is a big problem now we have sold so many stars. However one 'marque' player signing could change all that, so may have to pay over the odds for that one if only to change the way Saints are now perceived.
That signing could be the STRIKER or CB that we are so desperate for.

Time is running out and the fear is that we will panic and waste the money on average players who will not improve our first eleven.

I think Les Reed need help to convince 5 quality players to sign in less than 3 weeks remaining of the window, he has a lot to do.

Keep at it Les, top quality only please.

To be fair if I was jack I would be asking some questions. Unless I'm missing something I rate him and he doesn't seem to be a big time Charlie, our form improved when he returned in our 1st season in prem league.
Cork certainly impresses the fans (including me), but not our recent managers it seems. I wonder why.
When Victor was out for a few months last season and Jack got his run in the side, he looked better than Victor and Morgan in my opinion. I’d start him every day of the week, don’t get why he’s a bench warmer. I’d be p1ssed if I was him. Might lose him if we’re not careful.

Samuel E`to on a free would be a good option off the bench for us.he still has alot of goals left in him and maybe still better than Pelle, but seems he`s off to Ajax

Jack Cork, IMO, will have to wait for the transfer window to "slam" shut, before knowing for sure if he is to be offered another contract.
If rumours are to be believed, we are still being linked with players, such as Clasie, and IMO, the club will see who else they can bring in, before making the final decision on him.

Would be a shame to lose a player, of his quality, but if he lacks one thing, it is pace, something I think Ronko likes in a player.

I would imagine he's desperate to get out of Leeds as they are in absolute turmoil. Good to hear we have Forster as a player as he will be well worth his 10m. The CB position is the worrying one as so many other clubs are after the same players. It's whether we can convince them to come to a saints and help in the rebuilding with RK.
Now looking forward to the season starting and hopefully getting a result at Liverpool. Then perhaps the constant snipes we are getting from the press and media will change.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!
100% agree about Ron Vlaar - I won't fully repeat the various posts I've put on recent Echo threads about him. The Rojo deal is complicated by the 3rd party business interest. If (and it's a big if) Rojo's agent and the overseas media report are correct, then it looks like our second increased 17m euros offer was rejected but it seems that we might only need to go to 20m euros (+ acceptable terms) to get the deal done. Saints seem to be involved in many potential deals. Whilst we don't want to pay too much, Les is obviously aware of the limited time left but we need to be patient. I'm sure we will secure some of these deals this week and get the quality players we still need to plug the gaps and strengthen our squad. There is a load of crap reporting and rumours out there, some are totally fabricated, while others are leaked by the agents to try to up the interest and the price. I think that the recent comments on the Hernandez deal are an example of this. We shall see. Probably 99% of the negotiations are kept behind closed doors - as it should be. Equally 99% of the criticism of Les Reed and the board is based on complete guesswork and speculative assumptions. Judge them on September 2nd - not now.
Oh do tell us more about the inner workings of football transfers.have you been sitting in on negotiations? How do you know so much about what's happening at the club? Do you work with les? If so can you ask him why he can sell 5 first teamers so quickly but struggle to bring in their replacements with a week to go before the start of the season? You should be a football journalist or at least be running your own question and answer website.

We all seem to know what we need and hopefully that means Les Reed does too. We need quality not just panic buying but then we have known for a while Lovren wasn't returning and we've needed a goal scorer since last season so we shouldn't be in a position to be panic buying anyway. We have 3 weeks left but hope we can get in 1 or 2 before the weekend. Vlaar would be high on my list and I'd take a punt on Micah Richards if we could afford his wages...still young and can play CB or cover for Clyne on right. As for strikers have we not considered someone like Joel Campbell? There aren't many premier experienced strikers available other than Hernandez and I shouldn't think he'll come unless we pay him a lot of money (and I for one don't think we should). If Morgan goes then I think Cork is a fantastic player but other options in my opinion would be Delph or Huddlestone although guessing neither available. We all recognise we are still a number of players short but I think lets see where we are by Christmas with new players signed and bedded in. Feel much more optimisitic then when Poch left and looking forward to the West Brom game (taking my daughter to her first game so lets hope it's a good one!)

The other names, especially Gardos are all very exciting but I wonder if we are just being used by agents to fuel a bidding war.

Ron says he has nothing to do with bidding. Fair enough, but if we do come out of this transfer window with a top quality striker and centre back then a lot of people wiill have to doff their cap to Reed.

Let him do his job, then judge.
Nothing to with bidding doesn't mean nothing to do with identifying the player.

If I remember rightly, before Vic got crocked we had a string of clean sheets, then we started leaking goals for fun. I like Corky I think there is room for both.

We all seem to know what we need and hopefully that means Les Reed does too. We need quality not just panic buying but then we have known for a while Lovren wasn't returning and we've needed a goal scorer since last season so we shouldn't be in a position to be panic buying anyway. We have 3 weeks left but hope we can get in 1 or 2 before the weekend. Vlaar would be high on my list and I'd take a punt on Micah Richards if we could afford his wages...still young and can play CB or cover for Clyne on right. As for strikers have we not considered someone like Joel Campbell? There aren't many premier experienced strikers available other than Hernandez and I shouldn't think he'll come unless we pay him a lot of money (and I for one don't think we should). If Morgan goes then I think Cork is a fantastic player but other options in my opinion would be Delph or Huddlestone although guessing neither available. We all recognise we are still a number of players short but I think lets see where we are by Christmas with new players signed and bedded in. Feel much more optimisitic then when Poch left and looking forward to the West Brom game (taking my daughter to her first game so lets hope it's a good one!)
Joel Campbell would be a good signing but Wenger seems reluctant to let his players go on loan to other PL teams. He's ok at raidng other PL teams though.
Not sure about Richards though, his wages will probably be way too high.

It's going to be tough to get Rojo in. United are also interested. Big signings like that happen towards the end of the transfer window, the player will obviously hold out for the best deal he can get - at the biggest club he can go to.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!
100% agree about Ron Vlaar - I won't fully repeat the various posts I've put on recent Echo threads about him. The Rojo deal is complicated by the 3rd party business interest. If (and it's a big if) Rojo's agent and the overseas media report are correct, then it looks like our second increased 17m euros offer was rejected but it seems that we might only need to go to 20m euros (+ acceptable terms) to get the deal done. Saints seem to be involved in many potential deals. Whilst we don't want to pay too much, Les is obviously aware of the limited time left but we need to be patient. I'm sure we will secure some of these deals this week and get the quality players we still need to plug the gaps and strengthen our squad. There is a load of crap reporting and rumours out there, some are totally fabricated, while others are leaked by the agents to try to up the interest and the price. I think that the recent comments on the Hernandez deal are an example of this. We shall see. Probably 99% of the negotiations are kept behind closed doors - as it should be. Equally 99% of the criticism of Les Reed and the board is based on complete guesswork and speculative assumptions. Judge them on September 2nd - not now.
Haha it's Alan Hansen.your knowledge is astounding or are you spewing up the crap that you have read? I think 99% of what you wrote is s hite.
He's got a lot of spare time on his hands since motd.you know who this bloke is don't you?

Without doubt this pre season has been the most depressing of my life as a Saints fan of approximately 45 years. Five star players sold and two more seemingly keen to follow. The signings of Forster and Bertram excite me but we still need a new centre back to replace Lovren. However my main concern is that that the new midfield players and Pelle may not have enough goals in them to keep us away from the relegation places. Our existing midfielders rarely score and in Cork`s case not at all. Perhaps that`s why our managers don`t like him as much as us fans. The solution should in my view be a proven Premiership goalscorer like Hernandez, backup in the form of perhaps Wickham so that we have four forwards when J Rod is fit (if he stays), and a fast winger to open teams up. Easier said than done I know but it`s not as if we have`nt got the money to do it as was the case in the past. If it does`nt happen I fear a long hard season.

Very foolish to sell players and now scrambling before start of the season to buy players. Whatever said and done the biggest mistake was to conclude deals for our players so quickly. Should have told the players, ok we'll let you go only after we get the replacement in. Not a risky strategy imo. I hope the board has learnt their lesson in this respect.

We could have had a much stronger starting line up.

The board have got nearly every single strategic decision wrong. They knew they were going to sell the players which is why they brought season ticket renewals forward - so why didn't they line up the replacements in plenty of time? Truly appalling and inept.

I think if you care to go back a couple of weeks all you have said has been well documented by other fans and is probably very obvious to most.
What's done is done and most genuine Saints fans on here are trying to look forward and remain positive.
More new signings appear to be on the horizon and hopefully can be sorted sooner rather than later but it seems they aren't as straight forward as most of us would like them to be ie agents, part owned, personal terms etc etc.
Having been battered from pillar to post throughout the summer a lot of fans appear to be taking some comfort in the fact that we do still have a club and team to support and the new manager is stamping his own mark on a new team.
Rome wasn't built in a day and nobody will really know how we'll do until the transfer window closes and we've got a few games under our belts.
Yes we need one or even two CB's and a striker and yes we may stutter in a few of the early games but when everything's settled down we may just surprise a few people.
Fingers crossed that Ron's the man and he knows what he's doing!

Afternoon all!...I'still opimistic for this season, and that borne out by my faith in RK; however i'm with the majority of posters on here in being slighty concerned by our lack of fire power up front. Pelle looks like he's going to need some time to get adjusted to premier league football, and only time will tell if he will cut it at his level. I can't help feeling like someone who has turned up for lunch only to find that the rest of the company arrived 1/2 an hour earlier and there's only a few beans and chips left.

My initial thought was to get the selling out of the way,see what we had left, then go into the market knowing what we needed to replace. I now think I was mistaken in this. and am concerned that all the best/top players have been snapped up. I was hoping that we would spend something in the region of £25-£30m on a top striker, some one who could net us 25+ goals in a season; but if I,m honest, i can't think of one that's available. Jermain Defoe would have been a good signing but he's off in the States. We must get real quaility up front and spend BIG to get it. With the money we've got in, I, and am sure many others, will be really dissapointed if we dont.

Ron says he has nothing to do with bidding. Fair enough, but if we do come out of this transfer window with a top quality striker and centre back then a lot of people wiill have to doff their cap to Reed.

Saints Fans are acutely ware of the errors made by the Board this Summer which induced a mini-crisis.

There are recent positives - but still some way to go and Players still to be signed.

He is Leeds best player by a mile and obviously he has potential to improve. I live near eland rd and the word is that it would take a bid of 7-8mil to get him. I don't believe we will pay that!!
£4M plus add-ons is more realistic and more like the price we'd have to pay to land him too I'd say (so rising to £7M if he's hugely successful). Would be good business if so. However, I guess the Chambers price throws things up in the air a bit.

On the plus side, young player and Saints seems to add a few million on the sell-on price, so paying a tiny bit more to land someone with promise may reap dividends in future.

Have to agree that, with strikers, paying the big money can be necessary to land quality, although let's face it, that route is also littered with expensive flops such as Carroll, Torres, Soldado, Osvaldo and countless others.

If I thought we'd get him I'd say Bony, or Benteke though injured. Believe we could agree a price - it's the terms and clubs that would come in that would likely scupper either of those.

Remy is also still out there, but again the wages and baggage are a problem.

Not sure what's still around in Europe but big, powerful, clinical and fast would be nice.

I admit I did used to over egg my praise for Cortese.. but he was allowed a free hand to do what he wanted when he wanted with loads of cash. Happy days. Thats why I always referred to him as Don Cortese. No one ever argued with him. The Southampton Way was the Cortese way.

I know I sound critical but I do care about the club as much as everyone else. I also appreciate that we should be grateful for what we have rather than what we don't. What I find frustrating is that it seems so straight forward for others to sign our players but not for us. Especially our eternal search for a CB..

I must add that our run in initially is favourable and we have to capitalise so starting strong is vital.

It's going to be tough to get Rojo in. United are also interested. Big signings like that happen towards the end of the transfer window, the player will obviously hold out for the best deal he can get - at the biggest club he can go to.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!
100% agree about Ron Vlaar - I won't fully repeat the various posts I've put on recent Echo threads about him. The Rojo deal is complicated by the 3rd party business interest. If (and it's a big if) Rojo's agent and the overseas media report are correct, then it looks like our second increased 17m euros offer was rejected but it seems that we might only need to go to 20m euros (+ acceptable terms) to get the deal done. Saints seem to be involved in many potential deals. Whilst we don't want to pay too much, Les is obviously aware of the limited time left but we need to be patient. I'm sure we will secure some of these deals this week and get the quality players we still need to plug the gaps and strengthen our squad. There is a load of crap reporting and rumours out there, some are totally fabricated, while others are leaked by the agents to try to up the interest and the price. I think that the recent comments on the Hernandez deal are an example of this. We shall see. Probably 99% of the negotiations are kept behind closed doors - as it should be. Equally 99% of the criticism of Les Reed and the board is based on complete guesswork and speculative assumptions. Judge them on September 2nd - not now.
Oh do tell us more about the inner workings of football transfers.have you been sitting in on negotiations? How do you know so much about what's happening at the club? Do you work with les? If so can you ask him why he can sell 5 first teamers so quickly but struggle to bring in their replacements with a week to go before the start of the season? You should be a football journalist or at least be running your own question and answer website.
Now, now Sammy. You really shouldn't have a go at people for doing what you do day in and day out. That would just make you look silly.

Fair point but I would If I was confident the house would sell. The players we sold were in demand especially teenagers like Callum and Luke.

See how Liverpool gained with Suarez. more than 30 million by selling a year later.

Would you sell your current house without having lined up a replacement and make your family homeless?

Man Utd completed the purchase of Shaw with us and the very next day they completed the sale of Buttner. Do you really think they only started the negotiations with Moscow and the player after completing the Shaw deal or do you possibly suspect they may have thought of getting everything into place so it was just awaiting the signature?

Sky Sorts News are still saying "unconfirmed" reports and it's not on the captions yet (as at 1600) but here is the ClubCall report:

"Florin Gardos has undergone a medical as Southampton wrap up a £6million deal for the Romanian international centre-back.
The 25-year-old defender is set to net Steaua Bucharest a 50-fold profit four years after they paid 150,000 euros to land him from Concordia Chiajna. Saints boss Ronald Koeman has lined-up the Romanian to be his sixth summer signing and Gardos is seen as a natural heir to Dejan Lovren at Saints after the Croatian star joined Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert at Liverpool. Koeman saw Lovren score for Liverpool against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield on Sunday as he and assistant Sammy Lee scouted Saints' opponents for the opening game of the new Premier League season."

Do posters think that the offers for ur players came in on a Monday and they signed on a Tuesday?
Luke Shaw knew in April he was going to leave, so the negotiations were started when?
Saints have tried to keep the players they wanted, it didn't work though.
The next step is to replace the recently departed, not easy.
Remember we do not pay silly wages so anyone we want to convince to come they have to be persuaded by our dream, this goes for the players still here too.
In September what we have here is what we go with and we will need to support them as we never have before.
My difficulty is the fact that I am not certain of the loyalty of any footballers anywhere anymore.
No football player has ever been as loyal as even the most basic of supporters.

We started playing nice possession football with Pardew, NA stepped it up a level and at times we were a joy to behold other than a little slow at times…
MoPo speeded it, pressed and kept unprecedented possession but we actually started hitting the goal less…
For the first time in 5 years I am not happy with our overall 'style' of play, too slow, crap finishing, lousy defending for what is coming and dare I say almost boring….
..yes I know i sound like s2s the tw&t however I really think we are in for a shocker…nothing is as promised an improvement on last year no way Jose, just because we manage to fill the squad numbers does not mean we have the same team, ethic, quality and flair..worse what we had although brilliant at times had glaring holes…
..CB's, wingers, finishers..seems to me we have lost most of the good not rectified the bad but we do now have 2 keepers…
Someone explain why everything is so good please.

I've said this time and again but I'm still very surprised they don't try Cork out in central defence - surely he's got to have been worth a try with our other options seemingly so poor. It could be that what we've searching for in a partner for Fonte has been there all the time.

I think he'd be commanding and I believe he's suited to that side of defence. May not work, but I'm just surprised it hasn't even better tried in pre-season or prior to that. If Wenger thinks Chambers can switch I'd say Cork is much more of a natural centre defender physique, plus it's a crying shame for him to be in the bench when we are short in a position he could fill.
Not one I have thought about but he certainly reads the game well and puts hiself in where it matters.

He is one of my favourite saints players and I would always play him with spider (maybe not anymore) or Victorian midfield.

He uses a modest title which is thoroughly incompatible with his arrogant, boasting, taunting nasty attitude. Oooops - I've just invited a load more abuse! Who cares - we have Florin Gardos, our latest £6m signing to celebrate and he'll cost L'pool £30m + next summer! We need to be patient - in 5 years (or less) when L'pool go into administration - we can stick the boot in then. In 6 days time we'll have a taste of how that will feel when we get our 2-0 victory.

Sky have linked us with Philipp Wollscheid plays for Beyer Leverkeusen.
A CB, that would be two, and he is young, 26. and just breaking in to German national team.
Yeah. . . I'd go for him too!

Voila! We now have Florin Gardos to replace Lovren (subject to full confirmation). Next problem.....

I've said this time and again but I'm still very surprised they don't try Cork out in central defence - surely he's got to have been worth a try with our other options seemingly so poor. It could be that what we've searching for in a partner for Fonte has been there all the time.

I think he'd be commanding and I believe he's suited to that side of defence. May not work, but I'm just surprised it hasn't even better tried in pre-season or prior to that. If Wenger thinks Chambers can switch I'd say Cork is much more of a natural centre defender physique, plus it's a crying shame for him to be in the bench when we are short in a position he could fill.
Not one I have thought about but he certainly reads the game well and puts hiself in where it matters.

He is one of my favourite saints players and I would always play him with spider (maybe not anymore) or Victorian midfield.

Easy to say that when its someone else's money. Be honest, would you sign a contract on a new house before you had sold your current one?

Man Utd completed the purchase of Shaw with us and the very next day they completed the sale of Buttner.

Easy to say that when its someone else's money. Be honest, would you sign a contract on a new house before you had sold your current one?
Would you sell your current house without having lined up a replacement and make your family homeless?

Man Utd completed the purchase of Shaw with us and the very next day they completed the sale of Buttner. Do you really think they only started the negotiations with Moscow and the player after completing the Shaw deal or do you possibly suspect they may have thought of getting everything into place so it was just awaiting the signature? Jeez...
Not saying you are wrong, but the same chairman that closed the Shaw and Buttner deals, for Utd, is the same one that got slaughtered for fecking up Utd's transfer business, last summer.

Hopefully our board will learn as quickly.

If it had been one of our players signing for someone else they would of been first with a report, or if an ex player had scored for his new club that would be front page.

If they are supposed to be a local paper supporting local news I am a chinaman, I almost feel as though they don't like saints.
They do support Saints - but are too NON PARTISAN for the passionate SFC Supporter,
You may be right but they may want to think about who buys their paper.

Ha!

We now know this summer was always going to be a very tough one. I believe we appointed an inexperienced and lightweight board given the sh1tstorm it was going to have to face.

Even if they have learned I wonder how many years it will be before we assemble a team to compete with that of last season? And before everyone gives it the 'soon' nonsense that was one of the two best Saints sides I've seen in 40 years. Probably THE best because it had youth on it's side which the other one didn't.

Someone explain why everything is so good please.
How long have this set of players been together, how long has the manager been here, how many games have we played and how many key player demanded moves and were gone before replacements could be identified and employed.
So you agree then! ps do notblame RoKo just a board who know to little.
I do and I don't I think all us saints fans even the posies as we are referred to have been tested to the limit this last few months, however, I truly believe not sure why that the long term future is going to be brighter.

After all we all want the best for our club or most of us do I think.

Man Utd completed the purchase of Shaw with us and the very next day they completed the sale of Buttner.

Not saying you are wrong, but the same chairman that closed the Shaw and Buttner deals, for Utd, is the same one that got slaughtered for fecking up Utd's transfer business, last summer.

Ha!

We now know this summer was always going to be a very tough one. I believe we appointed an inexperienced and lightweight board given the sh1tstorm it was going to have to face.

Even if they have learned I wonder how many years it will be before we assemble a team to compete with that of last season? And before everyone gives it the 'soon' nonsense that was one of the two best Saints sides I've seen in 40 years. Probably THE best because it had youth on it's side which the other one didn't.
Any Board would seem lightweight after the autocratic domination of NC. It's rather like a democratic Government replacing a dictatorship.

He is also just recovering from a muscle injury and hasn't played for a while, so don't expect instant success.
Must be all those medicals.
Or as a result of the injury?

If it had been one of our players signing for someone else they would of been first with a report, or if an ex player had scored for his new club that would be front page.

It's going to be tough to get Rojo in. United are also interested. Big signings like that happen towards the end of the transfer window, the player will obviously hold out for the best deal he can get - at the biggest club he can go to.

Gardos will be a good back up if we can't get a big name centre half in.

I'm still holding out for Ron Vlaar though! He's got more experience and we'd probably be his last club, so he could offer at least 3-4 quality seasons. Instead of 1 good one (Lovren)!

The young Leeds lad looks like a great prospect too and would be a very decent coup!
100% agree about Ron Vlaar - I won't fully repeat the various posts I've put on recent Echo threads about him. The Rojo deal is complicated by the 3rd party business interest. If (and it's a big if) Rojo's agent and the overseas media report are correct, then it looks like our second increased 17m euros offer was rejected but it seems that we might only need to go to 20m euros (+ acceptable terms) to get the deal done. Saints seem to be involved in many potential deals. Whilst we don't want to pay too much, Les is obviously aware of the limited time left but we need to be patient. I'm sure we will secure some of these deals this week and get the quality players we still need to plug the gaps and strengthen our squad. There is a load of crap reporting and rumours out there, some are totally fabricated, while others are leaked by the agents to try to up the interest and the price. I think that the recent comments on the Hernandez deal are an example of this. We shall see. Probably 99% of the negotiations are kept behind closed doors - as it should be. Equally 99% of the criticism of Les Reed and the board is based on complete guesswork and speculative assumptions. Judge them on September 2nd - not now.
Oh do tell us more about the inner workings of football transfers.have you been sitting in on negotiations? How do you know so much about what's happening at the club? Do you work with les? If so can you ask him why he can sell 5 first teamers so quickly but struggle to bring in their replacements with a week to go before the start of the season? You should be a football journalist or at least be running your own question and answer website.
Well Sammy all of a sudden offering evidence is important to you - after all the unsubstantiated negative garbage you and your voices have dreamt up. Almost funny mate - well done for such display of humour.

Only sky sports and a couple of other websites quoting this, I hope it comes to fruition though, a few clips on youtube point to him being a no nonsense big centre half who knows where the goal is as well!! All for a bargain price and only 25 years old. These are the types of players I like us to be linked to, not necessarily the Rojos of this world!

A quick tricky winger is required, why don't we bring back Nathan Dyer! we also need a striker and more defensive cover, hopefully they will offload The Hoover. Changing the subject if Spider was to leave Strasberg get a 25% of the fee.

I don't think so. Similar but no.
It's not him.

Is it me or have saints upset the press, every article you read they seem to be having a go, even if we have signed someone they follow it with mass exodus etc etc?

I read that the Romanian Centre back is about to sign. He is left sided centre back 12 caps for his country and only 25. A quick tricky winger is required, why don't we bring back Nathan Dyer! we also need a striker and more defensive cover, hopefully they will offload The Hoover. Changing the subject if Spider was to leave Strasberg get a 25% of the fee.
Lucky he's not then. Think we can survive wing wise - lots of options to play wide attack. Assuming we get byram and rojo as well our defence is looking decent and deep in theory (although don't we at least need a fonte deputy as well) - then we need two central strikers as a priority imo.

Is it me or have saints upset the press, every article you read they seem to be having a go, even if we have signed someone they follow it with mass exodus etc etc?
Twas ever thus.In 1976 they were nice,because they didn't have any choice, and we were second div underdogs anyway,so it was a good story.
They hate it when its a level playing field, and we make the supposed big boys look ordinary,those clubs have always had an"off day" whenever that happens.
This is why there is so much frustration that we were unable to push on from last season,and achieve what it appeared was in easy reach,because the media would have had to have taken notice and given us the praise,(albeit probably grudgingly), we would have deserved.They didn't do it last season,because there was always a chance that we would falter,and they wouldn't have to,and now they don't.
Match of the Day pundits are just as guilty, and couldn't wait to tell us all how the club would have to sell at the end of last season.
I still think we will make some of them eat their words this coming season though.

Is it me or have saints upset the press, every article you read they seem to be having a go, even if we have signed someone they follow it with mass exodus etc etc?
Twas ever thus.In 1976 they were nice,because they didn't have any choice, and we were second div underdogs anyway,so it was a good story.
They hate it when its a level playing field, and we make the supposed big boys look ordinary,those clubs have always had an"off day" whenever that happens.
This is why there is so much frustration that we were unable to push on from last season,and achieve what it appeared was in easy reach,because the media would have had to have taken notice and given us the praise,(albeit probably grudgingly), we would have deserved.They didn't do it last season,because there was always a chance that we would falter,and they wouldn't have to,and now they don't.
Match of the Day pundits are just as guilty, and couldn't wait to tell us all how the club would have to sell at the end of last season.
I still think we will make some of them eat their words this coming season though.
I do hope you are right and I believe if we bring the necessary 3-4 players of the right calibre in we will be more than ok, we have had a rough deal with the media for years but currently it boarders on persecution.

If you could get any Internet in the Stadium you could actually have a bet!
Yeah why is that!?!? I used to be able to get a good connection, but it seems to have disappeared, perhaps we can get a petition going to have free WiFi at the ground, now that would be good...
There appears to be an enforced three hour internet embargo during the games, why? I haven't a clue.

Can't use Gary G. these days, those he wanted in 'his gang' were a bit too young. Anyway, something more modern would be better.

Maybe a song using the word 'Coming' (Koeman), instead.

For example, Foster and People's Coming of Age, maybe:

'Feels like, feels like Koeman, feels like, feels like Koeman .....'

Can't use Gary G. these days, those he wanted in 'his gang' were a bit too young. Anyway, something more modern would be better.

Maybe a song using the word 'Coming' (Koeman), instead.

For example, Foster and People's Coming of Age, maybe:

'Feels like, feels like Koeman, feels like, feels like Koeman .....'

Daily Telegraph claiming Saints are ready to fine Schneiderlin two of his £30k a week wages if he doesn't make himself available to play against Liverpool and to continue fining him thereafter if he continues his "strike". Hope he comes to his senses, stops listening to those who do not have his best interests at heart, and buckles down to some hard graft and continues to prove his worth to the club. If he does and he still thinks he can do better elsewhere next season, then maybe he'll get the chance to move to a really big club.

On another point, Daily Express reporting that your friend and mine, Brendan Rodgers, is looking to gatecrash our deal for Rojo, which, according to the report, was all but sewn up. The temerity of the man. Does Liverpool's scouting system merely consist of shadowing Les and his team and nipping in at the last moment with a slightly better offer?!! What does he need another defender for anyway when he has the headless Croat?? Beggars belief.

Reading as per Sally Taylor and Skunts as per Fred Dineage.
Also, what about Florin Gardos completing his medical?
No mention, apart from on Sky Sports News.
Daily Echo, as usual, slow off the mark!
Perhaps there is no truth in it, that's why nothing is being said.
Except they were v slow on forster saturday.
I agree, I had to do some digging to find out about Florin Gardos getting his medical...looks like a done deal already! He seems to have a pretty good rep playing with Bucharest. Anyone have any knowledge on how good he is?

When I read your comments I have to pinch myself they are often on similar lines to me, you are an intelligent person who think about what to put and it is always in moderation and sensible, you like me do not slag off the Board particularly Les Reed who has come in for some battering over the last 4 months and deserves credit for the work he does that none of us know about, at times he has a thankless task. I Emailed Les 3 weeks ago the concerns that the Supporters had about to much silence and had a reply from a female Secretary Becky then a phone call from an Assistant of Les, Les was abroad working and unable to reply albeit probably through a Secretary, like you I give the benefit of the doubt and we know that the Board and Ronald Koeman are working there socks off to bring in the best for Southampton FC, so keep those good post coming they a pleasure to read.
We would all like to write our own reviews Malcolm .
Hello SammyNoVotes!

How are your bestest mate Dame Edna and all your lovely red and white gladdies today there at the Nottarf Krap gladdy farm in deepest Queensland?

I see you are saying that we would all like to write our own reviews. But we can't all be like you, SammyNoVotes. That would be no fun at all, as your PMT must be such a trial for you. We know that it causes you to love voting yourself lots and lots of wonderful "WUMs up," so it comes as absolutely no surprise that you have given yourself the idea of writing your own reviews. I bet you'll soon start talking to yourself and also giving yourself answers! You truly do have all our sympathy.

I am already, as promised, giving you an honest "WUM's up" for each of your posts on threads about your beloved Saints, otherwise you will probably feel very deprived, then yet again start pretending to be aggressive towards all your many, many thousands of fellow Saints fans. I can so easily picture you practicing swinging your pink handbag around. What surprises me is that you haven't yet got a red and white one!

Anyway dear, I should now let you get on with being taken for a walk by SuperSaintSammy2Head

s, your red and white two headed wombat, otherwise neither of you will know whether you are coming or hoeing those gladdies!

Bye bye SammyNoVotes, bye bye.
Next time just write something funny.
