Saints have completed the £12.5m signing of Shane Long.

The 27-year-old striker has become the club’s second most expensive signing of all time after agreeing a four year contract to move from Hull to St Mary’s.

Saints had considered a move for Long in January, after the striker was identified by the club’s scouting and recruitment department as a somebody who would fit neatly into the team. A move has been swiftly made now after Koeman asked for another forward to be signed.

In a club statement, a delighted Koeman said: "Shane is a very good player. As a striker, he’s different to Graziano Pellè, which is something we needed.

"He brings ambition and a great mentality – he’s always running and always working, and he’s very down-to-earth. He’s a great person, and we need that type of player.

"He brings a lot of experience to our squad because he’s already played at Premier League level for a few years. He knows what we need at this level, and he can show that to our younger players as well. 

"Shane will be an important player for us and our future."

Long added: "I’m delighted. This came out of the blue for me but, once I’d come and had a look at the training facilities and met the manager, it seemed like the right decision for me and my family.

"It was a hard decision for me to make, but when you come down to Southampton you see how big a club it is and how well set up it is. 

"You look at how well they did last season and they are developing a new squad for this year to try and achieve those accomplishments again, and hopefully I can be a big part of that.

"Southampton play a brand of football that’s enjoyable to watch, and I’m sure it’ll be enjoyable to play in as well. I think the formation they play will suit me, and the manager has a lot of knowledge about football and I’m looking to learn off him. 

"In theory it’s a very good move for me, but all the hard work starts tomorrow when I get on the training pitch because I have to prove my worth."

Daily Echo:

Long, who has 47 caps and 11 goals for the Republic of Ireland, had only been at Hull since January, when he moved to the club from West Brom.

In his short spell with the Tigers, he made 15 Premier League appearances and scored four times.

Prior to that, Long had been at West Brom since August 2011, after signing from Reading for £6.5m.

He netted 19 top-flight goals in 60 starts and 21 substitute appearances for the Baggies.

Long had previously enjoyed six good years with the Royals, who picked him up from Cork City, scoring 54 times in 203 appearances across all competitions.

Borini scored the same number of goals as Long last season, having played more games. Liverpool are also looking to get the £12m they paid for him, back.

If Koeman is really in charge of signing players, where did he get Shane Long from?? Surely he can't have seen him play much or know anything about him? Sounds like Sammy Lee, Les Reed or one of the other natives might be making purchases on the managers behalf. How many times in his career has Shane Long scored 10 plus goals in a season, let alone in the prem. Should have signed Jordan Rhodes or Danny Ings.

Wish we had got him earlier when we had the chance we could have put a stop to any diving, perhaps he will drop that part of his game, I don't think RonKo will tolerate it.

I'm not sure being in charge of signing players means scouting/identifying them and doing the deal. I suspect that Koeman described the type of player he wanted to compliment the squad and the scouts came up with Long. Koeman would have agreed to the approach/signing happening.

Well there are enough clubs with our cast off this close season. Don't mind taking someone elses for a change. Not sure Welbeck is better and not sure it can be proven either unless you can get Shane to play in front of a midfiled of Utd's standard for a couple of seasons. Long is a nuisance striker - non stop niggling and running at you, good movement off the ball and will score a few and get a lot of assists. Can't wait to see him playing alongside JRod just beind Pelle. They will scare a few defences this season especially as just behind them we will have Taider, Gaston and Tadic - Can't wait to see this lot in action.

Wish we had got him earlier when we had the chance we could have put a stop to any diving, perhaps he will drop that part of his game, I don't think RonKo will tolerate it.

FleetSaint says...

Sorry if this has been said before. The problem I have with Southampton is this. Such a good game is spoken by Les Reed and Freddy Krueger but then the exact opposite has been done.

"We do not need to sell anyone" - Out go RL, AL, DL, CC etc etc

"We have a scouting department of 30 people who have expert knowledge of every player out there" - Then we sign Osvaldo, Ramirez, Long, Pelle etc.

It would appear that they had great targets in Rojo and the like but were aiming way above our weight. So we signed the next best? Or the next best after that?

Now Shane Long has often been a thorn in our side and has a habit of scoring against us, so at least that is taken away. He is a decent forward but nothing more. I welcome him as I do all players who want to come here.

Can Les Reed honestly look the Saints fans in the eye and say "I have done a great job this summer?" or even in the last season? Dejan Lovren was the best find they had and he turned out to be a greedy mercenary. Can they really have chosen Pelle and Dusic? Surely those were Ronald's picks. Bertrand was hardly a find as he is a left back in the changing room from Chelsea. Tadir was surely not found other than Inter Milan said "you can have him or Schellotto" and Schellotto said "Er.. no thanks". So basically 30 people are employed to find SHANE LONG! My mum could have found him for £50 and a bag of grapes.

So when the powers that be say "I don't understand why they don't trust us?" it is because what is said to us is a load of baloney.

That said, onwards and upwards and support the Saints through thin and thin as I have for 30+ years.

Well there are enough clubs with our cast off this close season. Don't mind taking someone elses for a change. Not sure Welbeck is better and not sure it can be proven either unless you can get Shane to play in front of a midfiled of Utd's standard for a couple of seasons. Long is a nuisance striker - non stop niggling and running at you, good movement off the ball and will score a few and get a lot of assists. Can't wait to see him playing alongside JRod just beind Pelle. They will scare a few defences this season especially as just behind them we will have Taider, Gaston and Tadic - Can't wait to see this lot in action.

This is a signing we should have made last seaon. He will give us poacher i front of goal . Good to see us bringing in a mix of British and European players.
Morgan in my view should stay ,as Poch will be sacked by the end of October
Cork must stay he is the most underated player since Nick Holmes played for The Saints. He lacks a goal in him and in my view is his only real weakness.
I am really hacked off with some of the so called fans who are full of doom. They are a disgrace. There is a biblical saying Wolves in lambs clothing in other words them up the road : The name we dare not speak of to the East not Russia. It will take time for the squad to bed in but I believe by the end of the window we will have a stronger squad.

How many times in his career has Shane Long scored 10 plus goals in a season, let alone in the prem. Should have signed Jordan Rhodes or Danny Ings.

2) To the nearest five million how much is that first "eleven" worth (in financial terms)

THIS could be an astute signing. Long has premier league experience for one. He is quick and a hard worker. He is a well known name. Everybody knows the name. He is 27 and could be hitting his prime. If managed and motivated correctly, with his experience, he could be a fine player. He could really shine and get 15 plus goals a season during his prime years. He is a another striker in the building. We can go to Liverpool with Pelle and Long up front. We now need another centre back. This might be a season of building and consolidation. But over time, once all the players have settled and gelled, we could get really good again if Koeman stays loyal for years to come. Think about it.......If you have 10 million pound goalkeeper, a 12 million pound striker, a well known respected manager and good other players in the squad, you don't go down (probably!) ! We will be fine. Get behind the Saints and be positive now. We can moan at Christmas if need be if we are bottom or something. But the money has been spent on decent enough players. Lets get behind them and roar them on at Anfield!!!

Good article , if we get Gardos in we should have enough for a mid table Finnish and good cup run at least. If RK gets them going and adds some spice in jan we may do better than that.

Ther hasn't been any asset stripping , their has been a changing of the guard, with the most significant signing being our new manager. Koeman comes with better credentials than any manager we have appointed in recent times, we need to trust him to build his team over the next 3 years, not 3 weeks or 3 months .

None of us know at this point how well the Pelle - Long partnership will develop and produce, so all comments are pure speculation. We know that some "little and large" combinations work really well (Quinn and Phillips etc.) so we must hope that this flourishes into a strike force that Liverpool can only envy and not have the money to afford!

Because he's been linked with Sunderland for 14 mill all summer and Liverpool want to sell him. Do you think Sunderland can attract better players than us then because it looks like they could get him. He's younger than long and a better al round player, all Long doe's is work hard, what else is he outstanding at??????

Delighted. The price tag means nothing if he does a good job for us and I think he will.

Skillful footballer in the Robbie Keane mould and seems to be a late developer (a bit like Rickie).

As Ron mentions, I also like his attitude and swagger - the kind of guy home fans love and away fans love to hate.

I don't see him as an out and out striker and I believe he'll fill part of the void left by Adam as a tricky, creative guy around the box.

Will surprise a few people.

Sorry if this has been said before. The problem I have with Southampton is this. Such a good game is spoken by Les Reed and Freddy Krueger but then the exact opposite has been done.

"We do not need to sell anyone" - Out go RL, AL, DL, CC etc etc

"We have a scouting department of 30 people who have expert knowledge of every player out there" - Then we sign Osvaldo, Ramirez, Long, Pelle etc.

It would appear that they had great targets in Rojo and the like but were aiming way above our weight. So we signed the next best? Or the next best after that?

Now Shane Long has often been a thorn in our side and has a habit of scoring against us, so at least that is taken away. He is a decent forward but nothing more. I welcome him as I do all players who want to come here.

Can Les Reed honestly look the Saints fans in the eye and say "I have done a great job this summer?" or even in the last season? Dejan Lovren was the best find they had and he turned out to be a greedy mercenary. Can they really have chosen Pelle and Dusic? Surely those were Ronald's picks. Bertrand was hardly a find as he is a left back in the changing room from Chelsea. Tadir was surely not found other than Inter Milan said "you can have him or Schellotto" and Schellotto said "Er.. no thanks". So basically 30 people are employed to find SHANE LONG! My mum could have found him for £50 and a bag of grapes.

So when the powers that be say "I don't understand why they don't trust us?" it is because what is said to us is a load of baloney.

That said, onwards and upwards and support the Saints through thin and thin as I have for 30+ years.
i heard your mum does a lot of things for £50 quid and a bag of grapes.

Hull City Fan Here
Shane Long is a decent nuisance striker who is more than the sum of his parts and will be missed in our ranks this season.

Only sad that the last sight of him I had in our Europa League tie he missed three of the easiest chances i have ever seen. I hope thats out of his system for your sake. His only other weakness is his one touch link up play, poor at times. i think we felt we should sell as his wife wasnt settled and also we have a lot of forward players who drift wide and need an always in the box striker. However only ince has the pace of Shane so it is a loss in that respect and Longy is also quite direct running with the ball on his good days

Saints were far and away the best side I saw last season and i think Shane will add perfectly to your high tempo, fluid, athletic style of football, presuming that is what your remaining and new players will stick to

I think its a bit much to say he is not worth the money - I mean its not as if you are potless. Plus in modern football every club we enquire to to repalce him will add £2 mill now anyway, whcih is why i question the decision

Because he's been linked with Sunderland for 14 mill all summer and Liverpool want to sell him. Do you think Sunderland can attract better players than us then because it looks like they could get him. He's younger than long and a better al round player, all Long doe's is work hard, what else is he outstanding at??????

Shane Long is a decent nuisance striker who is more than the sum of his parts and will be missed in our ranks this season.

Only sad that the last sight of him I had in our Europa League tie he missed three of the easiest chances i have ever seen. I hope thats out of his system for your sake. His only other weakness is his one touch link up play, poor at times. i think we felt we should sell as his wife wasnt settled and also we have a lot of forward players who drift wide and need an always in the box striker. However only ince has the pace of Shane so it is a loss in that respect and Longy is also quite direct running with the ball on his good days

Saints were far and away the best side I saw last season and i think Shane will add perfectly to your high tempo, fluid, athletic style of football, presuming that is what your remaining and new players will stick to

I think its a bit much to say he is not worth the money - I mean its not as if you are potless. Plus in modern football every club we enquire to to repalce him will add £2 mill now anyway, whcih is why i question the decision
Cheers mate for your info.. I hope our fans accept him and give him all their support. Good luck for the season ahead... Obviously not for 2 games!

You totally screwed up your argument with the last reference. Yes - if David Luiz is worth £50M, Shane Long is definitely worth £12M. It's a silly market - you pay what you think someone is worth.

What some fans might not always appreciate is that sometimes you buy a player to fit with the attributes of another.

If you look at the below highlights package of Long's 15 games at Hull you'll see him not only score a few very important goals but also set up a lot for his target man strike partner.

I'm sure Koeman and the scouting team expect him to do the same here:

Obviously we all have different points of view about the players we have and hopefully will continue to sign. However for me the main thing is that the club appointed a well respected manager in RK to replace MoPo, and he is now re-investing the money we have received from the players that we have sold on players of his choice. He has gone on record as saying this is completely normal for him so hopefully he knows what he is doing. Of course only time will tell but 3 days from the start of our season it is now time to get behind the manager and the players rather than squabble on her. After all this footy lark is supposed to be fun!

Actually, he scored 7 goals - not 4 - last season, in 30 matches; so who's the muppet?

Make of it what you will, but in recent seasons, he averages about one goal in every 4 matches, has a decent assist record and is a proven premier league player - something some people on here were critical of Pelle for NOT being.

Before you accuse me of some weird 'happy-clapper bias', I have never liked Long, and have said so on these threads. For me, he winds players up, dives and unnecessarily gets opponents into trouble. BUT, he's now a Saint - one of us. If he is a diving, cheating wind-up merchant, then he's OUR diving, cheating wind-up merchant and, like me, you can either get behind him and the team or, like certain others on here - who only comment on these threads when they have something to moan about -you can move down the M27.

Look Sammy, I mean saint gee, I thought you were just saying Borini was a far better player? Looking at his goals per game record it's not even one in five. Muppet.

12M is expensive, yes, but the fact Borini is touted at £16M puts the price into context in a positive way.

Others have stated Connor Wickham as the messiah at £2M cheaper - a guy that has an appalling Premier League scoring record (six in 40) but who scored a couple on a hot streak. And he can't displace Borini (seven goals in 32 starts for Sunderland, 1 in 13 for Liverpool) in the team.

I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.

Coming second wasn't a nightmare. If we had finished 8th then that would have been cause for concern.

So in his last full season in the PL he bagged 11 goals for WBA. Looks like he needs to play regularly.

He is only 27 and still improving. Not a bad signing, and at least we know that he can score in the PL.

I should imagine that he will get more service here than at Hull

I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.

Hull City Fan Here
Shane Long is a decent nuisance striker who is more than the sum of his parts and will be missed in our ranks this season.

Only sad that the last sight of him I had in our Europa League tie he missed three of the easiest chances i have ever seen. I hope thats out of his system for your sake. His only other weakness is his one touch link up play, poor at times. i think we felt we should sell as his wife wasnt settled and also we have a lot of forward players who drift wide and need an always in the box striker. However only ince has the pace of Shane so it is a loss in that respect and Longy is also quite direct running with the ball on his good days

Saints were far and away the best side I saw last season and i think Shane will add perfectly to your high tempo, fluid, athletic style of football, presuming that is what your remaining and new players will stick to

I think its a bit much to say he is not worth the money - I mean its not as if you are potless. Plus in modern football every club we enquire to to repalce him will add £2 mill now anyway, whcih is why i question the decision
good informative and unemotional evaluation here.

thanks Hull fan, it makes me feel more confident for one and we are all hoping that Ron is looking at the team dynamices and the sum of the parts rather than getting a bunch of superstars who dont gel. therefore this move may be inspired.

good luck to yourself too. you should be good enough for middish table and a nice cup run maybe. you also have europe league. enjoy that, should be fun

That is fair do. I keep saying that we need to see everyone out there. Surely, we should hold most opinions about new players and how well or how badly the team will do, until after everyone has had a go and then after a few matches.

We do not score goals or get points on the board until after matches have finished.

To add a bit of nice news, Alan Smith has an article in today's Daily Telegraph on his view of the TOP 8 signings of the summer, and it is good to see one of those he nominates is Dusan Tadic.

He says "FC Twente's playmaker was arguably the top performer in Holland last season, scoring 16 goals and contributing 14 assists. As RK's first signing, the clever Serb is capable of providing the guile previously offered by AL."

To be mentioned alongside Fabregas,Sanchez and Diego Costa and others gives an optimistic feeling for us. We shall see about this and all the new lads. But I say to them all - a very big welcome to super Saints!!

I may be in the minority but I am very happy to sign Long. He is just what we need. He is one of those players who doesn't stop running, has pace, agitates defenders, good in the air for his height and has a good footballing brain. £12m is paying over the odds but so be it. Bearing in mind virtually every signing in the Prem has been met by fans saying "that's way too much" maybe that's what getting players costs now - it's all relative. As for those saying we should of got Ings or Hernandez - they didn't want to come, and who's to say Long isn't better. And Gardos has just signed, today is a good day.

Shane Long is a good player but only average by Premiership standards, at £12.5m we have paid twice his worth.

However time is running out fast and this looks as though the board are starting to panic.

We needed a 20 goal a season Striker not an 8 goal a season one

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?

If Koeman is really in charge of signing players, where did he get Shane Long from?? Surely he can't have seen him play much or know anything about him?

I'm not sure being in charge of signing players means scouting/identifying them and doing the deal. I suspect that Koeman described the type of player he wanted to compliment the squad and the scouts came up with Long. Koeman would have agreed to the approach/signing happening.
That and I would imagine when spending £30 million on a state of the art training centre they probably got at least a VHS toploader in the deal to show Ron who they are getting.

A. Isn't available.

It depends who you compare him with? We paid far more for Osvaldo and look how good he was!
Let's analyse this a little more. He is a this peak 27 years old, he is proven in the PL. He is full on energy and will suit Saints style of play. He is a bit aggressive and can play dirty something missing from Saints DNA. He also can win us penalties and scores goals. In my mind that's a good buy. Now prove me wrong all the doom merchants!

And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,

Saintbobby: thanks for the update on Tadic, you obviously get a better quality paper than I do (SUN)!. Your right about giving players time. I think this season wll be the start of the ''NEW KOEMAN ERA''. he has very little of the Poch team left now, so success or failure will be with his boys. I'm optimistic for this season....think we'll suprise a lot of people.

Frankie, they most certainly do, Both Osprey and The Horse regularly go back to check what I posted.
It is a little sad, but each to their own....what ever floats their boats.

It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.

I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.
I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,
No one should ever take me seriously, that's not what I am about. I am not the Messiah, just a naughty old duffer, if anyone takes me seriously I will bring a plague of rotten fish jokes down on them.
I know Osprey, I have heard this little number of yours many times before.

You should put it to music, sth like Bohemian Rhapsody.

I'm just an old duffer up to a bit of mischief

You've said that multiple times. Perhaps you could enlighten us with who the striker they should sign is? Of course it's no point you listing anyone who:

A. Isn't available.
B. would want to come to Southampton.
C. We can afford the transfer fee.
D. We can afford the wages.
E. We can get a work permit for.
F. Has form that almost guarantees the requisite 20+ goals you talk about.

I wait with baited breath......
Is he a football scout or manager? NO

He's having his shout on the Long transfer, CALM DOWN!

Your style of writing is familiar....mmmmmmmm
I'm quite calm. My point is why keep saying we need a 20+ goal scorer multiple times, yes, the comment has been made many times recently, when such things are as rare as hen's teeth in the EPL. It's moaning that we are not doing something that we can't do! Perhaps I am a tad fed up with the negativity...... But I am calm.... Lol.

Because he's been linked with Sunderland for 14 mill all summer and Liverpool want to sell him.

He's younger than long and a better al round player, all Long doe's is work hard, what else is he outstanding at?????? Also the person who said how do you know Ings would come, his whole family live in Southampton, why would he not want to play for his local club, a better club than the one he's at. Koeman must be right though, the players we brought must be better than what we've lost looool.. Also we got top money for players???? not if Long's worth 12.5, Chambers must have been worth 30, Luke 50, Lovren's as good as David Luiz so 50 etc. Your all idiots, and happy with anything the club does, you'll be happy when we finish 16th.
This is like where's wally. Sammy 2 **** got banned but he is too mental to stop so is on here in a new guise. There're a few candidates and he could be all of them but my vote goes to this nobcheese. Are you Sammy and do I win £5?

I think I got the drift, we are all a bit punch drunk, as Norway said we have taken a hell of beating, it's time to get up off of the canvas and start fighting back. Happy Clappers and neggies alike, our aims are the same our methods are different, the enemy is the gutter press and whoever else is trying to undermine the Club at every opportunity. Stand up and be counted and above all get behind the Club, the wind of change is happening.

It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.

Sorry if this has been said before. The problem I have with Southampton is this. Such a good game is spoken by Les Reed and Freddy Krueger but then the exact opposite has been done.

"We do not need to sell anyone" - Out go RL, AL, DL, CC etc etc

"We have a scouting department of 30 people who have expert knowledge of every player out there" - Then we sign Osvaldo, Ramirez, Long, Pelle etc.

It would appear that they had great targets in Rojo and the like but were aiming way above our weight. So we signed the next best? Or the next best after that?

Now Shane Long has often been a thorn in our side and has a habit of scoring against us, so at least that is taken away. He is a decent forward but nothing more. I welcome him as I do all players who want to come here.

Can Les Reed honestly look the Saints fans in the eye and say "I have done a great job this summer?" or even in the last season? Dejan Lovren was the best find they had and he turned out to be a greedy mercenary. Can they really have chosen Pelle and Dusic? Surely those were Ronald's picks. Bertrand was hardly a find as he is a left back in the changing room from Chelsea. Tadir was surely not found other than Inter Milan said "you can have him or Schellotto" and Schellotto said "Er.. no thanks". So basically 30 people are employed to find SHANE LONG! My mum could have found him for £50 and a bag of grapes.

So when the powers that be say "I don't understand why they don't trust us?" it is because what is said to us is a load of baloney.

That said, onwards and upwards and support the Saints through thin and thin as I have for 30+ years.
i heard your mum does a lot of things for £50 quid and a bag of grapes.
Which is £49 more than your mum gets :)

i"m really pleased we got 2 players over the line today i would say a big welcome to all our new players if some off the new players have been reading these post recently they can all tell hopefully that we have all got the clubs best interest at heart we have verbal sparing and differing views but i would reason that the board came out with the statement after chambers left because some one in authority at sms was reading these posts and realised that the natives were up in arms i would hope that spider would stay seems to have gone quiet over this but if he does go which i believe he will we have a new player already to replace him and more youngsters coming through with potential that could please sign corky up give him a long term contract question who is going to take our free kicks and penalty"s now lamby has left?

Good signing - a bit pricey but you always get 100% from Long and he never gives up - exactly the sort of player fans like to see, well, I like to see. lol
Welcome aboard Shane go out there and get stuck in.

What with Gardos and all Clattenburg will be showering yellow cards around like confetti.

You've said that multiple times. Perhaps you could enlighten us with who the striker they should sign is? Of course it's no point you listing anyone who:

A. Isn't available.
B. would want to come to Southampton.
C. We can afford the transfer fee.
D. We can afford the wages.
E. We can get a work permit for.
F. Has form that almost guarantees the requisite 20+ goals you talk about.

I wait with baited breath......
Think you lost your own thread.
I know it's all a bit bewildering these days, but suggest you re-read and start again, although I think I get your point -too many wet Dream Team Managers?
I think I got the drift, we are all a bit punch drunk, as Norway said we have taken a hell of beating, it's time to get up off of the canvas and start fighting back. Happy Clappers and neggies alike, our aims are the same our methods are different, the enemy is the gutter press and whoever else is trying to undermine the Club at every opportunity. Stand up and be counted and above all get behind the Club, the wind of change is happening.
So Osprey, can you think of any strikers who fit the bill? Help poor fan4life out if you can.

Oh for goodness sake can we put this 20 goal a season nonsense to bed that you peddle in every single post. Here is a list of 20+ players in the last decade: Henry, Van Nistelroy, Drogba, Ronaldo, Torres, Adebeyor, Rooney, Tevez, Lamport, Bent, Berbatov, RVP, Aguero, Suarez, Bale, Yaya, Sturridge. Who of that calibre do you think we could both afford and convince to come to us? Also note that to score 20+ you have to play for a top side where you get sufficient opportunities so the likes of Long could not make that list regardless of how good they are.

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.

How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,

My best mate Rod (real name Mark - long, rather childish story) is a rabid Gooner. It doesn't matter what Le Boss does, he will convince himself it's all ok - all part of a master plan we can't yet see.

A few seasons back, I asked him a question - a question I thought we fans of the South's greatest club could debate: what exactly does the Board have to do to lose your faith?

We all know there are a spectrum of fans on here, and that some (myself included), have already had the 'thing' that lost us (for me, in case you're interested, it was Chambers leaving). Those in this camp range from seriously doubting the Board (again, me) to those believing they're muppets beyond redemption.

Then we have the other side - the believers. Again, just as good fans, who range from 'The Board have a wonderful plan' to 'We're a mid-sided club and always will be'.

So, to the latter group, my question to you is same it was to Rod: how far does the Board have to go before they've lost your faith*?



*A starter-for-10 to kick things off: how about sell Spider after giving their word they wouldn't, or us get related?

I cannot think of any off the top of my head, might have to do a bit more research. I still think we need another CB and possibly another left back for cover.

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.
I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
I'm sorry to hijack a thread but this is one of the strangest threads I've ever read!! Are we seriously saying that posters check other posters old comments on here?
It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.
I never realised this was played at so many levels. I thought we just posted about Saints stuff for a bit of banter? I have absolutely no idea where I would even begin to look for old posts, or where I would find the time!!!
Just a matter of asking the right questions in a Google Search, it is very easy to do.

I think they have to stop spending money for that to happen. Morgan is different as it appears he my have been given a verbal agreement he could leave when he re-signed in 2013.

*A starter-for-10 to kick things off: how about sell Spider after giving their word they wouldn't, or us get related?
Well that's a very broad question you ask so I'll confine my answer to the two hypotheticals you give as examples:

1. Players sales. MS has clearly stated his desire to leave the club. He's under contract so cannot 'make us sell him', well, theoretically. Legally no. In every other way yes. One would hope that the management team at the club will be able to turn the situation around and persuade him he wants to be at Southampton. However, as none of us will be privy to these discussions, should they fail, we will never know if it was because they didn't do a good enough job, or, whether there was no chance in hell his mind could be changed. Whilst it may be their desire to hold onto him, as stated, it may simply be in the clubs best interest to sell him at some point. If this does become necessary, to hold onto him just so a stated aim can be held would not be good business.

2. Relegation. I assume you mean as a result of all the player outs? Of course again we will never be completely sure of the facts, but, it would appear that LS had a sell on clause in his contract so not a lot could be done about that. SRL - any argument about that? AL - sell on clause.... DL - made it clear he was gonna sulk all season and disrupt what was left of the team (although MS has the potential to be in this category I don't think he has quite the same destructive character). Chambers is the only one I ?

You can argue the 'lack of vision' made the players want to leave but did NC sell them a hollow dream? Perhaps he really believed it but it was not obtainable? Don't forget FFP came in after NC set out the 'vision', and, he voted against it. Perhaps he knew the writing was on the wall for the 'vision'.

At this point, I have no evidence that the board are destroying the club. Just my opinion.

Phew what an exciting day! Like a lot of you I was underwhelmed at the prospect of Shane long, but have pondered on what he is gonna offer us down the flanks and in the holes. We were clearly missing something against the Germans, Mayuka came close to providing it: someone to profit from Pelle's flicks and knock one's, but Long could be the man. I think RK has been very shrewd here, sure the price was inflated but that's Prem football and he's an experienced Prem player and at 27 entering his prime!! PS just watched his interview video and he came across really well, articulate and incredibly respectful of Hull and their fans, a top guy and hopefully top player, the guys who left us could have learned a lot from his graciousness, and he was only at Hull for 7 months!!!

Just a tap in from the 6 yard line but they all count.

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.
I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,
Can you give us some examples? And, if possible, their other login names?
Uh oh, I touched a nerve!

Actually if you consult Osprey or the Horse, they will research into my past posts and you will find that I never once said the club was being asset stripped.
Some said that on here but me... not guilty.
Hope that clears this up.

It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.
I never realised this was played at so many levels. I thought we just posted about Saints stuff for a bit of banter? I have absolutely no idea where I would even begin to look for old posts, or where I would find the time!!!
Oh Frankie, there are machinations going on beyond any of our comprehensions. The big players on here, naming no names, are making political manoeuvres which would put Francis Urquhart to shame.

Open your eyes Frankie and don't let the glamour of it all razzle dazzle you to the point that you are unable to see the ghastly underbelly of the thread.

You've changed your tune!!!
Always happy when good things happen legend, not happy when bad things happen... normal human behavior I am led to believe.

Yes a very good day :-)
Shut up you mug. You talk utter shiit. You're always slagging off the club and the board, every day. Any posts from you I see on here will be swiftly skimmed over just like the guy who reckons he owns the 3rd biggest business in Britain.
I don't like rudeness on this site, and, have to say I would prefer posters had a healthy debate and respected each other's differing opinions. However, I'm afraid Costa Gaz has rather been the Architect of his own downfall lately......
Downfall??? happy chappy today.. 2 good players signed in positions that we desperately needed them.
We should all be singing from the same hymn sheet today.. not bearing grudges.
Yes happy happy today but spent most of the last two months telling us the club was being asset stripped..... I'm merely hypothesising as to why some other posters may have turned on you - almost quicker than you have turned from a neggie to a HC....
Actually if you consult Osprey or the Horse, they will research into my past posts and you will find that I never once said the club was being asset stripped.
Some said that on here but me... not guilty.
Hope that clears this up.
Ok, remind us then, what exactly have you been saying for the last couple of months?

Oh Frankie, there are machinations going on beyond any of our comprehensions. The big players on here, naming no names, are making political manoeuvres which would put Francis Urquhart to shame.

Open your eyes Frankie and don't let the glamour of it all razzle dazzle you to the point that you are unable to see the ghastly underbelly of the thread.

Now you have reached that fork in the road where you have to take the decision if you will continue with that whole being employed thing, but remain a part-timer.

Or Frankie are you going to jack your job in and come live on the thread, full-time.

It's a tough one Frankie. I would argue that it's probably best to dabble in a bit of thread before you go making any big decisions.

Thanks for the £12 million, you got a good player there, he runs everything down and doesn't stop till the final whistle blows. Not a great goal scorer and missed 3 sitters last week in Europe for us but sure he will get you 10 to15 goals this year.

Pulled up injured last i saw of him so may not be fully fit, watch out for at least 5 offsides a game as he plays on the last man and be ready for some crazy diving....good lad though sorry to see him go....crazy money #UTT

You've said that multiple times. Perhaps you could enlighten us with who the striker they should sign is? Of course it's no point you listing anyone who:

A. Isn't available.
B. would want to come to Southampton.
C. We can afford the transfer fee.
D. We can afford the wages.
E. We can get a work permit for.
F. Has form that almost guarantees the requisite 20+ goals you talk about.

I wait with baited breath......
Think you lost your own thread.
I know it's all a bit bewildering these days, but suggest you re-read and start again, although I think I get your point -too many wet Dream Team Managers?
I think I got the drift, we are all a bit punch drunk, as Norway said we have taken a hell of beating, it's time to get up off of the canvas and start fighting back. Happy Clappers and neggies alike, our aims are the same our methods are different, the enemy is the gutter press and whoever else is trying to undermine the Club at every opportunity. Stand up and be counted and above all get behind the Club, the wind of change is happening.
So Osprey, can you think of any strikers who fit the bill? Help poor fan4life out if you can.
I said this on here yesterday, so hopefully this will help fan4life understand.

Working on a worst case scenario on our new strike signings, let's have a look at last season's strike options vs this:

Lambert (16 goals), Jay Rod (still here), Guly (0 goals)

This season prediction, based on players signed thus far, performance last season: Jay Rod (no change), Long (7-9), Pelle (??).

My best guesstimate then, based on Long scoring his usual quota and not improving (I actually think he'll get 11 or 12 for us), is that Pelle needs to chip in with a maximum 9 goals, probably less for us to equal the goal return of our previous line-up.

On that basis, I think it's a fair assumption that we are as good, if not better off than last season in attack, when we finished in our best league position ever with one of the highest goals-for records in the league. Clearly Jay Rod would have been injured in either line up.

I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,
Can you give us some examples? And, if possible, their other login names?
Uh oh, I touched a nerve!
I have one other login name but I can't remember the password. It's RisingSon. Who else do you think I am, then?

WOW

You've changed your tune!!!
Always happy when good things happen legend, not happy when bad things happen... normal human behavior I am led to believe.

Yes a very good day :-)
Shut up you mug. You talk utter shiit. You're always slagging off the club and the board, every day. Any posts from you I see on here will be swiftly skimmed over just like the guy who reckons he owns the 3rd biggest business in Britain.
I don't like rudeness on this site, and, have to say I would prefer posters had a healthy debate and respected each other's differing opinions. However, I'm afraid Costa Gaz has rather been the Architect of his own downfall lately......
Downfall??? happy chappy today.. 2 good players signed in positions that we desperately needed them.
We should all be singing from the same hymn sheet today.. not bearing grudges.
Yes happy happy today but spent most of the last two months telling us the club was being asset stripped..... I'm merely hypothesising as to why some other posters may have turned on you - almost quicker than you have turned from a neggie to a HC....
Actually if you consult Osprey or the Horse, they will research into my past posts and you will find that I never once said the club was being asset stripped.
Some said that on here but me... not guilty.
Hope that clears this up.
Ok, remind us then, what exactly have you been saying for the last couple of months?
I have been saying that although things seem dark right now, there is light at the end of the tunnel and we will win the league.
I have been banging my drum for the last couple of months and nothing changes... we will get stronger and better the world is our oyster, there is no limit to what we can achieve.

I'm sorry to hijack a thread but this is one of the strangest threads I've ever read!! Are we seriously saying that posters check other posters old comments on here?
It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.
I never realised this was played at so many levels. I thought we just posted about Saints stuff for a bit of banter? I have absolutely no idea where I would even begin to look for old posts, or where I would find the time!!!
Oh Frankie, there are machinations going on beyond any of our comprehensions. The big players on here, naming no names, are making political manoeuvres which would put Francis Urquhart to shame.

Open your eyes Frankie and don't let the glamour of it all razzle dazzle you to the point that you are unable to see the ghastly underbelly of the thread.

Thanks for the £12 million, you got a good player there, he runs everything down and doesn't stop till the final whistle blows. Not a great goal scorer and missed 3 sitters last week in Europe for us but sure he will get you 10 to15 goals this year.

Pulled up injured last i saw of him so may not be fully fit, watch out for at least 5 offsides a game as he plays on the last man and be ready for some crazy diving....good lad though sorry to see him go....crazy money #UTT

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.
I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
I'm sorry to hijack a thread but this is one of the strangest threads I've ever read!! Are we seriously saying that posters check other posters old comments on here?
It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.
I never realised this was played at so many levels. I thought we just posted about Saints stuff for a bit of banter? I have absolutely no idea where I would even begin to look for old posts, or where I would find the time!!!
Oh Frankie, there are machinations going on beyond any of our comprehensions. The big players on here, naming no names, are making political manoeuvres which would put Francis Urquhart to shame.

Open your eyes Frankie and don't let the glamour of it all razzle dazzle you to the point that you are unable to see the ghastly underbelly of the thread.

Welcome to the snake pit!!!
Wow, wow, wow. I am starting to think that if you asked some people their hobbies they would say; Full-time roll-player on Daily Echo Saints site.
You're a fast learner Frankie!

Now you have reached that fork in the road where you have to take the decision if you will continue with that whole being employed thing, but remain a part-timer.

Or Frankie are you going to jack your job in and come live on the thread, full-time.

It's a tough one Frankie. I would argue that it's probably best to dabble in a bit of thread before you go making any big decisions.
I probably won't sleep tonight and let you know my decision tomorrow....

That is a great post by the way :o)

I recently said that it is not quite so easy to be a Saints supporter .
I am going to have to revise that.
Today it became a little easier and on a daily basis it does appear that things are not that bad.
We lost some players that we were always going to lose and we have replaced them with some others that may well be just as good in their own way.
We will have a different style ofplay, that has to be obvious to all of us. We don't have Rickie holding it up, instead we have Shane Long.
We don't have Adam doing tricks, we have a choice of 3 to do that now.
We don't have Lovren standing firm, we now have others and perhaps more to come to do that.
We don't have Luke on the left wingback, we have Ryan.
We don't have the prospect of Calum, we only have the prospect of 5 or 6 others coming through.
Any player signed by Saints is going to get my support, not blind idolatory faith, but definitely my support.

Support the Saints.

Just one thing about hull city fans tonight acting with dignity.
Shane Long jumped ship from Hull after just half a season at the first opportunity, obviously a bigger wage/money was the temptation.
However Hull fans have wished him well, not called him a greedy mercenary and other such names but just said good luck to him and told us that we have signed a diamond.

Respect to fans of Hull.

Have a think back to his WBA days when he partnered a certain Everton player up front who was like Pele big, strong and held the ball up well.
West Brom had a fantastic season that season with those two up front so if I'm right you could see a strike force with a hell of a lot of power and then it's a disision on who partners Shane up front way Jay is fully fit.
Again a great signing for what we need which is goals.

Osvaldo was quite obviously MoPo's call and nothing to do with our scouting network. We backed a manager's judgement and it didn't work. It happens.

As for Long, I think you may be surprised to see how he prospers with better service than the likes of Hull or West Brom could offer. He is also, like Rickie, one of those players who can't be judged purely on goals scored as his game offers an awful lot in terms of bringing other players into proceedings. I think he's a great signing.

Well here is one EPL team that will definitely struggle now.

Tony Pulis has left Crystal Palace by mutual consent.

Pulis, 56, met with chairman Steve Parish earlier in the day amid reports of friction between the pair over areas of responsibility.

The former Stoke manager has been frustrated by the failure to land a number of his transfer targets during the summer.

Gotta feel sorry for the CP fans they may see a few of their players wanting to leave .

Osvaldo was Cortese.

He was linked the season before when Nigel was still there.

MoPo for all his crimes is not responsible for that.

I wish no bad feelings towards the people of Portsmouth, but I personally wouldn't want to be either from Portsmouth or Southampton , Whether you believe me or not I am a scouse and a very, very proud scouse from Liverpool.
Which kind of makes you wonder why you want to be friends with us on here, does no one want to debate with you on your own newspaper site? It doesn't bother me, just a bit curious?
Proud of what? The way your supporters got English clubs banned from European competitions for 5 years
Probably proud of the lifestyle the scousers who have moved down south live. There are three distinct social classes. The wealthy ones are the drug dealers, the middle classes are the thieves and the lower classes just claim benefits.
Sounds very similar to skuntsville.

What, so MoPo didn't want Osvaldo? I have no reason to disbelieve you but if that's true then it sounds like quite a hefty thing to impose on a manager who had probably already figured out the player was a bit of a knobber.

Looks like a very tight split at the moment.

But enough of the real World lets move back to the fantasy that being a Saint's fan has become.

The rules of Fantasy football are very clear.

The Board are all from Zombie Land recruited and paid to do as much damage as they possibly can to the Club.

The Manager has no ability to make or influence any decisions, simply being controlled by said Zombies.

(Some) of the Supporters are blessed with a God like vision and insight into playing football in the World's toughest League (Not even close even for the fantasy fans.

And me, I don't have a clue.

I support the Club, its Board, Its Management, Its Players and its supporters.

I've had good years and bad years but through it all, I've never been able to look into the future.

I suspect there will be a few tears along the way but at the end of it all I'll be able to say that I remained a Saint

Too old, too disabled, too poor, too far to travel to get there every other week but still a Saint

As a bona fide saints fan who surported the club before I was even born, I feel ashamed. Not because the club sold all are best players (alleged best anyway) but comments negative ones at that that I have posted. Last season when I was hate the skates I got a shed load of abuse in my defence of dany fox and guly. At the start of last season when nicola cortese was reluctant to sign his new contract, the dirty Argentine and 1 morgan schiders backed up by certaun ex southampton players came out and said if cortese leaves and quote by M S, if he leaves I will have to review my positiin with the club as I only signed my new contract on nicolas vision for the club. At the time my exact words were along the lines of they signed for a club not an individual. Its the mighty Southampton fc not as far as im aware NC FC, if they lost the fact they signed for a club not an individual they can jog on. After being extremely **** of by the biards actions in selling individuals and false statements and having time to reflect absorb and digest. I lost sight of the fact I surport a club not an individual. In making comments and statements that I have makes me as bad as the players we have sold. For richer or poorer better or worse. Spoilt to a very goid side for one year makes u act like the fake man u, chelsea glory fans off the world. In their nieavety and inexperience all the board have done is clear the remains of corteses deluded influence out of the club for the greater giid of the club we fail or succeed its all for the club not an individual. Weather were happpy boyt it means nothing we , as saints fans have been dissapointed and upset bout many a decision. Weve got over it, good bye and good luck to the players that have left. I hope morgan goes now as well. With him goes the last of NC FC, we still have cork qhos miles better, we go down so what we done it as a proud club. With SFC pkayers, I surported themm inleague 1 once I will again. Stop giving the pkayers we have signed weather your happy or not means ****, u surport the saints. Their saints pkayers. Good or sh! T it dont matter as long as they try n care. I lost sight of that some where recently. In doing so I let the club I love down. COME ON YOU SAINTS. FOR BETTER OR WORSE IM A SAINTS FAN.

I hope morgan goes now as well. With him goes the last of NC FC, we still have cork qhos miles better, we go down so what we done it as a proud club. With SFC pkayers, I surported themm inleague 1 once I will again. Stop giving the pkayers we have signed weather your happy or not means ****, u surport the saints. Their saints pkayers. Good or sh! T it dont matter as long as they try n care. I lost sight of that some where recently. In doing so I let the club I love down. COME ON YOU SAINTS. FOR BETTER OR WORSE IM A SAINTS FAN. lallanasatit

One sentence always bugged me from 2 years ago. After a match might of been city, are first game, nigel adkins was asked about the Ramirez transfer. I like gaston dont get me wrong. What worried me was nigels response. I dont know about the ramirez transfer but if its true he is a fantastic player and its one that shows the ambitiin of the club. That to me says he the manager fidnt have a clue bout transfers almost wasnt trusted to make those calls. In my opinion if he was being undermined he had earned the right to quit. Crucified for a bad start, sacked when it turbed round. The mighty man utd had a similar dtart last year and didnt di to great, im not convinced the dirty argentine did any better than our nige. If nige was in charge we would of had a trip to wembley for sure at least as semi finalists last year. Yet heres some twa t giving trust over transfers which were , how do we put it poor, poor player or attitude in the player dunno why im beating round the bush. One was great but a complete kno b of a human being, one was shi t and a complete kno b of a human being and clearly reflected their managers values of being a clear kno b of a human being. And the third not least I wasnt sure of but at least wants to stay for now, not sure hiw is article bout us struggling this seadon helps his new colleague s settle in and helps their confidence like, but I can forgive that.in all honesty when were you happy bout any 1 of corteses or when it mattered one of mo pos decisions? ??

A.S. Are you watching Saints game in a pub this Sunday? I am expecting to be in Aberdeen this Sunday and wondered if you wanred to meet up for a beer.

What did you do?
Im very vocal in my support of the YES vote.
Would that be the YES to Scotland falling off the edge campaign..Only joking - promise. Believe me, living in Watford has gone it's own nightmares

Looks like a very tight split at the moment.

But enough of the real World lets move back to the fantasy that being a Saint's fan has become.

The rules of Fantasy football are very clear.

The Board are all from Zombie Land recruited and paid to do as much damage as they possibly can to the Club.

The Manager has no ability to make or influence any decisions, simply being controlled by said Zombies.

(Some) of the Supporters are blessed with a God like vision and insight into playing football in the World's toughest League (Not even close even for the fantasy fans.

And me, I don't have a clue.

I support the Club, its Board, Its Management, Its Players and its supporters.

I've had good years and bad years but through it all, I've never been able to look into the future.

I suspect there will be a few tears along the way but at the end of it all I'll be able to say that I remained a Saint

Too old, too disabled, too poor, too far to travel to get there every other week but still a Saint
Thats the spirit Graham.
Any time.

Not so old, not so crippled just poor. The occasional TV Matches have to do the job these days

Les Miserables says...

At the risk of being labelled a "happy clapper" because I say something positive about my team (I think you'll find its called SUPPORT), I cant help but see a parallel in the signing of Shane Long and the signing (a while back admittedly) of Phil Boyer.
Boyer also had a reputation as a hard working forward, always creating more for others than he ever scored himself. When he came to us he thrived on the sort of football we were playing then and became part of a very potent strike force - with Ted MacDougall.

The style of football we play will, in my opinion, suit Shane Long down to the ground, and his presence and the way that he harries defenders should provide opportunities for Pelle too.

That aside personally I think that the 12 million quoted is at least 3 mill over the top (based on recent deals) BUT the figure is only a "guesstimate" as neither club has disclosed the actual figure.
Word from a couple of friends who work at SFC is that 12 million is wide of the mark - at least the initial cost without performance related add ons.

Sorry to be so positive .

Word from a couple of friends who work at SFC is that 12 million is wide of the mark - at least the initial cost without performance related add ons. Sorry to be so positive . Les Miserables

Just a tap in from the 6 yard line but they all count.

I said a few months ago that Shane Long would be an excellent signing and would be available for around £12.5m,but all I got was abuse and 163 thumbs down.
I think that was in response to an article in an Irish Newspaper, which appeared in November 11th 2013. It was before he moved to Hull and we were definitely in the running then. I found the reference about the time you told us that we were being taken over by the Dalian Wanda Group and Yoshida was in talks with some Japanese Clubs back in January this year. I don't think you got the thumbs down for the subject matter, as usual it was the way you presented it which got some posters (not HCs as it happens) backs up.
I did not actually post this about shane Long, it was just a little joke. sorry!!

Are you seriously going back over my past posts to catch me out Osprey?
Have you not got anything better to do? Get down the park or the pub and mix with real people. Your lack of interaction with real people is turning you into a bitter old g!t.
I usually rely on Velly to catch charlatans out, but I was looking for something else when I came across some of your gems, I couldn't resist it. You must remember what you post on here is firmly embedded in the records, so perhaps you might think twice about posting stuff that could come back and bite you. Just a little joke? Ok ha! ha! I believe you, no offense, keep posting, I like you, you are silly. I have said plenty of stupid things and can have a laugh with people who pick me up, it is not a problem, because I am an Official Idiot don't forget.
How exactly did you catch him out?
And what is velly? I believe horse spends hours checking out my past posts as well... hehehe I must be quite an important person in their lives..
It's strange how as more and more regular posters have started to become a bit disillusioned with what is going on at the club, a fair few NEW posters have surfaced over the last few weeks. Most of whom are dead ringers for regular HC posters on here.

Oh dear, they do take this posting lark oh so seriously!!,

I'm sorry to hijack a thread but this is one of the strangest threads I've ever read!! Are we seriously saying that posters check other posters old comments on here?
It isn't the normal thing to be doing, but I do a lot of research so that I can get my facts right and I come across a lot of odd things in doing so, try it, there are some cracking yarns to catch up on, not always negative, and some of our posters prove to be very savvy at times.
I never realised this was played at so many levels. I thought we just posted about Saints stuff for a bit of banter? I have absolutely no idea where I would even begin to look for old posts, or where I would find the time!!!
Oh Frankie, there are machinations going on beyond any of our comprehensions. The big players on here, naming no names, are making political manoeuvres which would put Francis Urquhart to shame.

Open your eyes Frankie and don't let the glamour of it all razzle dazzle you to the point that you are unable to see the ghastly underbelly of the thread.

Welcome to the snake pit!!!
Wow, wow, wow. I am starting to think that if you asked some people their hobbies they would say; Full-time roll-player on Daily Echo Saints site.
You're a fast learner Frankie!

Now you have reached that fork in the road where you have to take the decision if you will continue with that whole being employed thing, but remain a part-timer.

Or Frankie are you going to jack your job in and come live on the thread, full-time.

It's a tough one Frankie. I would argue that it's probably best to dabble in a bit of thread before you go making any big decisions.
Some of us are lucky enough to do both :-)
