Ronald Koeman is hopeful Saints will sign a defender and a winger before the transfer window slams shut at 11pm tomorrow – but is prepared to allow Saphir Taider to leave little over three weeks after he joined the club.

A turbulent summer of ins and outs at St Mary’s will finally draw to a close tomorrow evening, and before then Koeman is optimistic of adding two fresh faces to his squad.

“We are close but it has to be close,” said Koeman of potential new recruits.

“A defensive player and winger are the two positions we look for.”

However, there will be one rather odd departure from St Mary’s with Taider returning to Italy.

The Algerian midfielder only signed for Saints on what was meant to be a season long loan deal on August 6, but is off already.

Officially he has failed to settle, but when asked about the situation Koeman was clear that Taider didn’t appreciate being told he was not guaranteed first team football and would have to prove his worth like everybody else.

In the end it was decided that it was better for all concerned if he left.

“It was a difficult situation for him,” said a frustrated Koeman.

“I can’t guarantee players to play. We have competition and a lot of good players and you have to show you have to play.

“I always have in mind to put out the best starting line-up and it’s a competition and we need everybody.

“If you show that then it’s no problem but if you can’t accept that then that’s difficult.”

Koeman did admit he would be relieved when the window closes and he finally has a settled squad he can work with.

“I am happy and I think the rest of the managers are happy as well,” he confessed.

“It’s always difficult when you have a lot of changes in the team.

“You are doing pre-season but I have to wait until September 1 to know exactly what players I have in my squad and then you can really work to develop the players, to develop the team.

“It gives us a good feeling after today.”

Not sure what to make of this obviously Taider was under the impression that he would be guaranteed a starting place cant think of any premier team let alone saints that would guarantee a starting place for a loan player not sure if we will get another central midfielder but I was surprised we signed a central midfielder in first place would rather a central defender and a pacy wideman seems like we have gone back in for Redmond would like that but Norwich fan sites want the deal to happen what with what saints have apparently offered oh anther bit of good news Pocchy is getting stuffed at home good COYS

Agree he is overpriced but it's the nature of the beast unfortunately.
We paid over the odds for Long as clubs know we have a healthy transfer fund.

I see that several of you do. He must be a pretty attacking midfielder to get so many goals but the Austrian league is not very strong.

I just realised that I have given a thumbs up to every post on here, so far. Must be a record! Amazing what a good result and good team performance can do - even our supporters are starting to gel!!!! Let the good news continue!

Just found this on him:

Sadio Mané
Club Red Bull Salzburg
League A. Bundesliga
Nation Senegal
Position LW, LM
Age 22
Height 175cm | 5'8"
International Reputation Very Bad
Contract Valid Until 2016
Foot Right
Attack Workrate High
Defensive Workrate Med
Weak Foot 3
Skill Moves 3

Traits

Selfish, Speed Dribbler, Loyal

I also see that Salzburg won the league/cup double last season.

So, if we get him, we'll have good cover on the left.

Yes, was a strange feeling choosing which traitor to support today, but had to give the Croatian traitor my backing this afternoon.

Bar the QPR game I'm heartened to see Spurs haven't seemed to get the hang of the Poch game as quickly as our guys did (probably due to selfishness and individuals in the squad). They looked poor against West Ham and got away with it.

Was very pleasantly surprised with Ron's tactics against West Ham as well - he clearly went there to go all out for the win when many of us would probably opted for the insurance of Victor over the extra creativity of Davis or Long. Paid off and I think the fact he said we needed to win that game shows where he's setting his target - and it clearly isn't just survival. If it was he'd have started with Vic.

On the subject of transfers - linked with Porto's Diego Capel as well as the Salzberg guy (only in the Star, granted).

To be honest though I wouldn't be surprised if these links are more to put pressure on other clubs or agents to do business (Redmond/Townsend). Though his introduction to the game was bad today I felt Townsend showed he offers something on the right, but only at about the £6-8M mark - same for Redmond.

As short term-ism as it is, I think the win on Saturday should help us attract players and could potentially sway someone choosing between us, Sunderland and Newcastle, maybe the Belgian defender.

Just hope the players they bring in are better or equal to what we have. Biggest task for the board is not to sell Morgan no matter the price, as I sense there could be more offers after yesterday's performance. The board and RK must keep their word and hold firm, as we have seen enough of our prized assets go this summer. I note Ricky didn't even get on the pitch today, sad to see such a talent wasted on the bench especially as he has only a few years left.

He won't go. If we were going to be selling him he'd have been rested on Saturday. Ron again stated he'd be staying and I'm sure after Saturday's result the last thing they want to do is upset things again - even the most positive people would be furious after Saturday.

Anyway, by the looks of the last two away performances the asking price is only going in one direction, so it's a win win for us.

So if we assume Morgan stays it's only really losing Cork that would upset the optimistic vibe - and I'd like to think this week's performances will make it very hard for us to let him go and might make him determined to stay.

Why are people worried that spudhampton or arsenil might increase their offer for spider? He isn't going anywhere, this window. If he isn't for sale why would the club have a valuation on him? Unless he has a release clause in his contract, which it looks like he hasn't then clubs can bid what they like and still be told hes not for sale. One thing that has become apparent is that spudhampton haven't got any money to spend, they are trying to get rid of 10 or 11 players, that either don't want to go or aren't wanted by others, to try to raise some funds.
Hopefully by the time the Jan window shuts Pochaliar will be dumped by levy the axe, spider wont be so keen to go there then.

As for in coming players, as long as we don't get dross Townsend and do get a good CB I will be happy.
Don't know how much game time gardos will get this year as Ronnie said he was one for the future when we got him. Would also like to get a wide man in to play on the right, unless tadic goes that side instead.
Looking forward to deadline day and the club giving us a shock or 2.

Really good to hear Big Ron stating real news (that he can) and giving us all a better understanding of what's happening in St Mary's. The Mane deal, assuming it comes off, is important to note here in that there was nothing on the wires before today about a potential signing. Meaning that we do have a good network that can find exceptional talent around Europe and keep it quiet, so lets not forget that, especially when you consider it has found bargains such as Morgan (under 2m), Lovran (under 5m) and a certain Tadic (under 10m) - who I think will be a find of the season based on the first couple of games that I have seen.

Add to this we have one of the best academy's in Europe, a sensible pay structure, don't tolerate prima dona players and understand a lot about running an EPL team.

I love being a Saints fan COYR!!

Yeah, if Pelle gets injured we might be a bit light up top. What's the outlook on Jay Rod or Sam being in contention - I imagine they don't want to buy someone in the knowledge that they will be back, but I'm not sure that's not until November for Jay Rod at least. All signs suggest we're happy with our strike options though so looks like we're done in that area.

With the closing of the transfer window let's hope we have the bottle to keep Cork -as I said before "good players do grow on trees!"

I'm starting to believe two more key signings could take us a Long way past where we were last year before that LLLiverpool mutiny. You "Read" it here first. Then I'd say "Taida so"

Morgan is staying with us - at least until January and probably a lot longer. I'll stake my reputation on it and offer a sincere apology if I'm wrong. Jack Cork is very likely to stay too but on this one I'll only stake the wife's reputation! If she finds out I said that, my reputation will be the least of my worries!

I thought Florin had been recovering from injury and although probably ready to play now (being on the bench at Millwall & West Ham), RonKo has probably decided to give him at bit longer - better be cautious now rather than regret it later.

Yes. The whole Rojo affair was like a soap opera. His agent came out with a different story or spin on it almost daily. Rojo himself seemed to replicate Lovren's want away behaviour and the deal was complicated enough anyway with the 3rd party ownership of a majority stake in the player - apparently this ownership arrangement is commonplace for Portuguese clubs. All that made public would put most clubs off. So, with this court case coming up, surely the deal will be off or are United taking prisoners now?!!!

Although RonKo always wants to be honest and open, he knows that it is unwise to say anything about potential deals until there is a definite yes with a signing or a definite no. Good tactics to make out we were walking away from that one. I also think the Townsend rumours were used as a decoy - I do not believe that we were ever really after him or doing any deals with Spuds. Hope we get Redmond too. It's amazing how many of the players we were rumoured to be interested are still available.

I must admit I was a bit sceptical when Krugar said a few weeks ago to "judge the new board after the window closes" I am now feeling that they have the clubs best interests at heart and are doing an amazing job in rebuilding the team with what appears to be players of equal if not better ability. As for the manager, well on the evidence so far he is our most important signing, looks like Manure got the wrong Dutchman. I wonder how long it will be before Todgerham Hotsperm come knocking after they realise Poxytino is just another in a long line of failures for the London wannabes

On top of all this,, RonKo, in an interview this evening, has said that if we play like we did in the 2nd half against the Hammers, we could make 7th or 6th this season in the EPL. He also expects us to qualify for the Champions League within 3 years and in the meantime, we will chase some silverware in the cups. Great ambition from our greatest ever manager.

Here's the Daily Mail article:

Ronald Koeman targets Champions League for Southampton within three years after West Ham win
• Koeman confident Saints can challenge big boys to reach Europe's top tables within the next three years
• Southampton won their first Premier League match of the season, beating West Ham 3-1 at Upton Park
• Morgan Schneiderlin's double and Graziano Pelle's first Saints goal secured the points
• Koeman thinks French midfielder Schneiderlin will still be at the club after the transfer window closes tomorrow night
• Has been the subject of intense speculation linking him with a move to Spurs
By MARTHA KELNER FOR THE DAILY MAIL
PUBLISHED: 22:33, 31 August 2014 | UPDATED: 22:33, 31 August 2014




I think after eighth last season we try to keep that and maybe in next three years to reach the Champions League, win a title. The League Cup is a target and the FA Cup, and to reach the highest position in the league as possible,’ said Koeman. ‘You have to dream.’

Like compatriot Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, Koeman said he needs time to build a team after a summer exodus.
‘I understand (Van Gaal) needs time,’ said Koeman. ‘I need time as well but the games are still going on. This is a difficult season for us. After being eighth it will be tough to keep that position but if you play like we did in the second half then maybe we can reach sixth or seventh.’
Southampton came from behind with Morgan Schneiderlin scoring two superb goals — and Koeman is confident of hanging on to the Frenchman.
‘I understand players like to move to play Champions League, and the money is much bigger, but I have to do what is best for the club. We can’t say “Go, go” because after Schneiderlin there is maybe another who comes and says “You don’t show the ambition you told us before”.
‘But we want to keep going what we did last season, and the easiest way is to keep the best players.’
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce had some sections of the crowd calling for his head after his side’s capitulation and he accepted some of the blame.
‘I accept my responsibilities and the criticism I get,’ he said. ‘But I can’t protect the players because the supporters are certainly not daft. I can’t defend the indefensible.’

I shared the same opinion on the Taider thread a few days ago. I would assume that the reason we may be signing another class defender is a long term plan to cover the centre defense and bolster it in the short term. No disrespect to Fonte, he has been awesome for us but it is fair to say that he isn't getting any younger.

This is exactly the point I was trying to make a couple of days ago, but everyone was rope a doped by some propaganda stating it was because he couldn't hack the training, which didn't fit to the reports of how well he played in the Leverkusen and the under 21's match. While his attitute was disappointing I still feel like he had a lot to offer, and can't blame him for wanting to leave after being benched at Inter for a great deal of last season, and facing that here. We have more depth in CM than anywhere so why did we get him here, when we needed players in other areas even more. His exit is no big loss, A fair call financially also, but it was a shame that a promising young player like him wasn't given more of a shot. I reckon he could have been of great benefit to the team. I'm not slating anyone but I don't see anything wrong with my perceptions on this.

The reason why we are going for another centre half is we are getting rid of the Hoover, and its seems we have won the race to buy a Belgium international according to Sky transfer news. If true he is already here. Redmond for Saints, at this late hour it is far easier to get players based in the UK. It seems the Belgium boy is called Toby something Belgium sounding name. The doom merchants on here were silenced on Saturday by a great performance at Wet Pam. The new boys seem to be settling in . I think we look very solid and Pelle is finding his feet. Morgan will stay unless we get a huge offer. I will be very relieved when the window is shut. Regarding the centre half we need to have four centre backs in the squad. I still think we need a covering right back for Clyne.

I am interested to know why Gardos hasn't seen any game time despite being on the substitues bench. Going by people's comments Yoshi has improved, but I would imagine that it wouldn't hurt to give Gardos some game time to adjust to the pace and intensity of defending in the PL. And not risk disater by throwing him in the deep end if Fonte or Yoshi were to get injured or red carded. Especially with Hooiveld and our youth the only cover at CB. I'm liking the look of Gardos and Alderweireld at the back if they are as good as reported!

It seemed to me, and I have watched it replayed many times over, that Pelle actually scored twice, not Spider. Does anyone have a take on this...?

I watched it many times myself. I agree that Pelle seemed to get his head to that goal when Spyder took the shot. Surprised I haven't heard anything official yet though.

Geez the skunts and neggies have really done a number on some readers here. Insecurity has set in so that no criticism is tolerated, be it unfounded, constructive, or possibly even true. Anyone who does seems to be getting thumbs down for questioning anything or having an opinion that isn't in line with a pigheaded unwillingness to view things objectively. Maybe I need to be re-programmed so I can be a happier, more agreeable robot. Either that or I have picked up some obsessed fans..... I love you all!

I am interested to know why Gardos hasn't seen any game time despite being on the substitues bench. Going by people's comments Yoshi has improved, but I would imagine that it wouldn't hurt to give Gardos some game time to adjust to the pace and intensity of defending in the PL. And not risk disater by throwing him in the deep end if Fonte or Yoshi were to get injured or red carded. Especially with Hooiveld and our youth the only cover at CB. I'm liking the look of Gardos and Alderweireld at the back if they are as good as reported!
I suspect there are two reasons, first RonKo is keeping faith with the defence whilst it is doing OK, second is maybe Gardos is not looking ready or up to Prem level.

We need to buy another CB by tonight so good to hear the Alderweireld rumors.

But no news of a proven Goalscorer yet, hope we are in for one unless J-Rod is improving sooner than expected. However a pacy winger wing with a good cross that can score goals would be good for options, shame we didn't still have Nathan Dyer, Jason Puncheon or signed Wilfred Zaha.

Reports about Mane say he is greedy but not much known about him, Redmond has Prem experience but would have to up his game with us.

Keeping Morgan and Jack is also a big concern after their performances yesterday.

Come on Les last busy day!!

If Ronko is keeping faith with the defence whilst it is doing ok, why do we need another CB? It seemed strange that after stating we didn't need any more signings in the defence, we seem to need another one. If Florin isn't up to scratch then maybe he should get dropped like Taider then.

Meaning that we do have a good network that can find exceptional talent around Europe and keep it quiet, so lets not forget that, especially when you consider it has found bargains such as Morgan (under 2m), Lovran (under 5m) and a certain Tadic (under 10m) - who I think will be a find of the season based on the first couple of games that I have seen.

Add to this we have one of the best academy's in Europe, a sensible pay structure, don't tolerate prima dona players and understand a lot about running an EPL team.

I love being a Saints fan COYR!!
I was thinking just that too - absolutely came out of the blue. Unlike many other European countries (including their neighbours Germany and Switzerland), Austrians are less tolerant of the the gutter press (or certainly used to be when I Iived there briefly in the early 1980s). So, perhaps less opportunity for their local media to find ways to prize out potential stories. Anyway, at last a deal which has been kept under wraps. I wonder if there is one more for Monday?
Even this game of hype, BS, Blx, smoke and mirrors, double bluff, egos, cockroach agents, prima donna players, contrary owners, and hysterical fans - stealth can still get you to where you want to be. Interesting assessment gents.

He will go at least one year before it ends to make sure we get some cash .. but nobody can be in doubt now that he wont be here beyond his contract.

... and while Im rambling on .. what about the finish from Pelle for his goal.. cool, quick, hit first time, accurate and no dithering - wallop - goal !

I think Morgan has 2 years to run on his contract but I know there are those on here who do know because it was talked about a little while back. I fear you might be right it's just a matter of time with him but that time might make him reconsider and stick with the 3 year plan of Rambros.

Yes. The whole Rojo affair was like a soap opera. His agent came out with a different story or spin on it almost daily. Rojo himself seemed to replicate Lovren's want away behaviour and the deal was complicated enough anyway with the 3rd party ownership of a majority stake in the player - apparently this ownership arrangement is commonplace for Portuguese clubs. All that made public would put most clubs off. So, with this court case coming up, surely the deal will be off or are United taking prisoners now?!!!

Spider? Just Google his name and you can find what you need:-
On 25 February 2013, Schneiderlin signed a new contract extension to keep him at Southampton until the summer of 2017.

Whether he stays will depend on how well RonKo can get the team to perform. Why do people insist on listening to mischief and rumour, why do they try to read between the lines about what he has been saying, he has been told that we don't want to sell him, if he goes, he won't be cheap for whoever wants him the most. Just may be he will stay after all, nothing is certain in football.

I expect some serious TD's for this but it seem Defoe is available as his MLS club has gone into self-destruct mode - Harry is trying to snap him and Aaron Lennon up. Would like to see Defoe here even if it is just to shove one up Harold, besides I've always rated him and reckon he could still do it for another couple of years. Lennon too come to that. Don't expect many to agree however.

Would like to see Defoe here even if it is just to shove one up Harold, besides I've always rated him and reckon he could still do it for another couple of years. Lennon too come to that. Don't expect many to agree however. jls217

On 25 February 2013, Schneiderlin signed a new contract extension to keep him at Southampton until the summer of 2017.

Whether he stays will depend on how well RonKo can get the team to perform. Why do people insist on listening to mischief and rumour, why do they try to read between the lines about what he has been saying, he has been told that we don't want to sell him, if he goes, he won't be cheap for whoever wants him the most. Just may be he will stay after all, nothing is certain in football.

If Ronko is keeping faith with the defence whilst it is doing ok, why do we need another CB? It seemed strange that after stating we didn't need any more signings in the defence, we seem to need another one. If Florin isn't up to scratch then maybe he should get dropped like Taider then.
Taider was on loan, Gardos was bought and paid for. We have to keep him for the length of his contract or until he wants to go, whichever is shorter.

I have no idea what he's like, but Fonte and Yoshida are playing well, and I should imagine Grados is having to fight for his place.

Ronko has the inside story on players in training unlike us, so I'm sure he knows what he is doing. However isn't it prudent to give new signings a bit of a run to test how they fare during a match? Like I said if something happens to Yoshi or Fonte, dropping him in the deep end isn't good for anyone.

You make a good point but, as I see it, changing the team to give him some experience would be dropping him in the deep end anyway. If you're suggesting giving him a run out in the last 10-15 minutes if we're winning easily or losing hopelessly, it might help him a bit.

Not sure if Cortese was sacked,but that would be the objective view certainly to be fair;but then again,anyone who walks away from something that is ok,and appears to show some disloyalty,will always attract a fair amount of vitriolic displeasure.

Reading the comments of Norwich supporters it seems they are not worried about losing Redmond. Pace but can't cross the ball and does not
know where the net is. A few say he might have potential but they will happily take £9 mill which they consider well over what he is worth.

Are you serious? A traitor is defined as someone "who betrays his friends or country" did he not pretend to be friends with the players and supporters? He left for purely selfish reasons and has gone out of his way to unsettle JRod and Spider. I assume you are a Cortese lover, well from what I have gleaned from the fallout of his dismissal is that if he had stayed we would be heading the the way of Leeds and Dog Sh*t city (pompey), into financial ruin. So yes Poxytino is a treacherous Argy tw*t and I am so pleased he was replaced with a proper football manager who inspires confidence in both the players and supporters, Poxytino has had his time in the limelight by being lucky enough to have been associated with our Football Club. Sacked by Christmas.

Ah football fans. You hate Pochettino for leaving but you have never stopped hating Les Reed for the "crime" of staying and doing his best for the club! You quite hate Koeman for not being Pochettino, for if you sit in the Northam end you hate everyone in the Itchen and if you sit in Chapel you hate everyone in Kingsland..... Be honest - you actually hate everyone except the opposition. They're usually ok.

Spot on, Ronko reminds me of Adkins with a bit more football experience, Adkins was treated awfully by Cortese.

For all the doom that was chucked around the situation IMHO is

Better manager
Better structured board
Better squad
Better bank account

Could do with a better pint at the ground but that all I can think to moan about really.

I was surprised he stayed as long as he did after the pasta eating surrender monkey left. He did say if Cortese goes he was leaving.
Then again every time he spoke his nose got longer.
I agree, I think we were all taken in by the duplicitous tw*t, if the truth be told the football under Adkins was not amillion miles away from what Poxytino had us playing. Lets just sit back and watch him fail spectaculary at Todgerham. Sacked by Christmas, (SBC)
Spot on, Ronko reminds me of Adkins with a bit more football experience, Adkins was treated awfully by Cortese.

For all the doom that was chucked around the situation IMHO is

Better manager
Better structured board
Better squad
Better bank account

Could do with a better pint at the ground but that all I can think to moan about really.
I think that more and more people are comming to the same conclusion. Adkins has not been given enough credit, dont get me wrong I wouldnt swap Ronko for anyone. I am expecting a season of transition followed by years of success. Poxytino SBC

Oh right not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't sacked by Christmas.

I do think he will struggle, he took over a good bunch with some good groundwork already in place from Adkins they were willing to run through walls for him, I ain't so sure he will get that at spurs, to many egos to many supposed stars.

Saying that it turned out we had a few of our own in the end I suppose.

You are so right thats why I think the club didnt try to hard to keep the likes of Lallana and Lovren, I think they started to believe their on hype so the club did the best thing they could, sell them for vastly inflated prices to gullible Brenda at Liverhampton. I was very concerned at the time but now I look at the new signings and think the club have done amazing transfer business. Lets hope the window closes with only players comming in and none going out.

I saw that and I also heard on Talksport Todgerham Hotsperm are also having another go for JRod, am I worried, no. Ralph Krugar went on national and international sports programmes and stated that both Spider and Jrod are going nowhere. For his and the clubs reputation he has to stick to his guns and ride out these last 7 hours. Lets concentrate on the in's not he out's.

Sacked by Christmas, (SBC)[/p][/quote]Spot on, Ronko reminds me of Adkins with a bit more football experience, Adkins was treated awfully by Cortese. For all the doom that was chucked around the situation IMHO is Better manager Better structured board Better squad Better bank account Could do with a better pint at the ground but that all I can think to moan about really.[/p][/quote]I think that more and more people are comming to the same conclusion. Adkins has not been given enough credit, dont get me wrong I wouldnt swap Ronko for anyone. I am expecting a season of transition followed by years of success. Poxytino SBC[/p][/quote]SBC?[/p][/quote]Sacked by Christmas[/p][/quote]Oh right not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't sacked by Christmas. I do think he will struggle, he took over a good bunch with some good groundwork already in place from Adkins they were willing to run through walls for him, I ain't so sure he will get that at spurs, to many egos to many supposed stars. Saying that it turned out we had a few of our own in the end I suppose.[/p][/quote]You are so right thats why I think the club didnt try to hard to keep the likes of Lallana and Lovren, I think they started to believe their on hype so the club did the best thing they could, sell them for vastly inflated prices to gullible Brenda at Liverhampton. I was very concerned at the time but now I look at the new signings and think the club have done amazing transfer business. Lets hope the window closes with only players comming in and none going out.[/p][/quote]That's the worry, someone has said on the other thread that man utd are putting a bid in for Spyder,.[/p][/quote]I saw that and I also heard on Talksport Todgerham Hotsperm are also having another go for JRod, am I worried, no. Ralph Krugar went on national and international sports programmes and stated that both Spider and Jrod are going nowhere. For his and the clubs reputation he has to stick to his guns and ride out these last 7 hours. Lets concentrate on the in's not he out's. bbb001
