And there are some rumours that Spudsudontlike are after Jayrod and are trying to include Townsend in the deal. So that will be no thanks on the first one Spuds and no thanks on the second one too. After your embarrassing defeat yesterday I think you are in desperate need of a very high quality holding midfielder who also gets forward and scores goals. We have the best one and you can't have hime either.

As a right footed Centre Back, Toby will have to compete with Jose Fonte for his place, although he can play at Right Back too, it is important to strengthen the squad, as long as it doesn't upset the status quo. Taider was obviously impatient and didn't fancy waiting for his chance to be first pick, doesn't seem to be the same attitude with Gardos, although he has some need of getting full fitness, before he is thrown in the deep end, I suspect.
I still think the prime need is for a strong finisher, we are fairly well covered in most positions. What will Artur do if nobody wants him? Perhaps he should knuckle down and try to usurp Fraser?

I might be wrong but I think after Girouds injury Arsenal will be more interested in signing a striker, don't think a defensive midfielder will be their priority, I think it is going to be a long day.

£6 million formal bid turned down from Palace for Cork but no new contract despite his contract ending in June 15. Good and bad ( ...and slightly odd) news therefore.

Why let an asset depreciate from £6 million to zero in 10 months .....the wonderful world of football where business sense and logic is in very short supply.

Isn't he good enough for us to keep him on a longer contract?

It was like watching a washing machine with the weekly bedlinen going round and round .. and his interview on MOTD was such a moaning ramble of self pity it was a pure delight.

If we keep Spider to season end we will provided we stay positive be OK.

I would love to see a rabbit out of the hat today something that for all of us draws a line on a horrific close season perpetrated by all that is wrong with modern football, disloyalty, overwhelming greed, agents and shortsightedness although who is ultimately to blame is anybodies guess.

If the targets are not desperation picks and are selected because of adding to our team great, my concern is why Andros Townsend is so highly thought of Puncheon is a better player and we sold him for peanuts…

Long in contrast I have faith in because he has been a target that fits into our style for a 'long' time…..

I thought Wenger bought Calum Chambers to be a potential central midfield option. He also has Flamini and Arteta. Not telling you how to do your job Arsen, but I think you need to be prioritising a striker, maybe a left back, maybe a centre back, maybe switching goalkeepers to your reserve guy. Plenty to keep your mind on without trying a failed bid for Morgan.

Aim for deadline day should be: Toby and a winger (I'd prefer a striker, but winger all good), then relax for the rest of the evening and have a laugh keeping Levy and MoPo on the phone for the entire evening pretending they've got a hope of getting Morgan. Fax them through the paperwork at 11pm saying 'Go **** yourselves'.

yes sir, here it is


It looks like Sporting Lisbon have given in to Southampton’s demands for Capel to go out on loan despite wanting to sell the player for €5m in this transfer window.

Loving that Spurs simply don't have the players to play the way MoPo wants.

Some pundits are saying it will take time to bed in, but I don't see it - Eriksen and Lamela simply don't want to be dashing about pressing players and Adebayor can't be relied on to do that either.

Not sure if their easy fixtures at the start of this season are a good or a bad thing - means he's been able to get off to a good start, but Sunday showed that raising expectations may not be such a good thing in the long term.

How MoPo must wish he had Morgan and Jay Rod to show them how it's done. I'm not going to count my chickens before 11pm, but I'm hoping the club sticks to their guns and he hasn't got a hope in hell.

Shame for Townsend that his first name ends in Dros(s) because that is what he is.

We have been promised a that by today we will have a better squad than we had at the end of last season...so there is no room for players of this standard.

I'm going to wait to see whether we sign him and if so for how much before I make a judgement on Townsend. I think he offers something different if we face a team that doesn't like that sort of threat, but as someone else mentioned, he's not that different to Punch really.

I get a feeling that we're going to end up with the two loan signings today, which makes sense seeing as time is tight and that we got burnt with Taider, as long as we have concrete options to buy.

Really hope Florin turns out to be a good option, because when you look at our current squad and add Jay Rod, Sam and, assuming he's good, the Belgian guy, we really are looking pretty strong in terms of depth across the squad.

Obviously that's assuming no further important outgoings.

Should Florin be the business (because at present Lovren is the big loss as far as I can see) are we really that much weaker than last season squad wise? Not sure we are.

I think he's seen as emergency cover for those two positions, but frankly I agree - you should judge whether someone is worth a place in the squad on their main role. Judging from the fact Cork has scored one and played a big role in setting up another this week, I'm not sure we should be looking at him as a defender, although I think that's a handy and very viable bonus to him as a squad member.

Finally got a Sky signal and telly permanently on sport news - a lot of the business being done seems to be one year loan deals.

Is this why there seems to be so much interest in the club to franchise the academy?
Are we heading to a future of certain football factories churning out youngsters who will be marketed to clubs and rented out for a season or two? Hugely lucrative market for the successful academies not just for the top leagues but for the lower ones not able to afford to buy a better quality player to get them to a cup final or promoted or even out of the relegation mire and not be saddled with a player they can't afford if it all goes wrong with them by the end of that season. If it isn't in their minds maybe it should be 'cos it could be the very money making machine that Saints need to slowly move us into the CL spots and beyond, especially if we get the pick of the crop an annual basis anyway.
Any thoughts?

Hugely lucrative market for the successful academies not just for the top leagues but for the lower ones not able to afford to buy a better quality player to get them to a cup final or promoted or even out of the relegation mire and not be saddled with a player they can't afford if it all goes wrong with them by the end of that season. If it isn't in their minds maybe it should be 'cos it could be the very money making machine that Saints need to slowly move us into the CL spots and beyond, especially if we get the pick of the crop an annual basis anyway. Any thoughts? jls217

Think we just annoying them, Townsend is not good enough to wear the Saints shirt, well not in my opinion any way, like all English players, overrated by media hype.
I'm going to wait to see whether we sign him and if so for how much before I make a judgement on Townsend. I think he offers something different if we face a team that doesn't like that sort of threat, but as someone else mentioned, he's not that different to Punch really.

I get a feeling that we're going to end up with the two loan signings today, which makes sense seeing as time is tight and that we got burnt with Taider, as long as we have concrete options to buy.

Really hope Florin turns out to be a good option, because when you look at our current squad and add Jay Rod, Sam and, assuming he's good, the Belgian guy, we really are looking pretty strong in terms of depth across the squad.

Obviously that's assuming no further important outgoings.

Should Florin be the business (because at present Lovren is the big loss as far as I can see) are we really that much weaker than last season squad wise? Not sure we are.
this is why i dont see hiim as a good enough player for Saints, he is a good direct player, but his end product is a sight for sore eyes, i for one believe J Rod is a better player than Townsend, I think Mane is a more finished product, same directness but he can dribble, got more tech and is a more free flowing player who can pick out passes and is a hard worker so will fit are pressing style more, plus he has room for improvement at just 22 years old he will get better, but as i said, that's just my opinion

Morgan should still be with us, although ars nick are ready to offer 27mill,THAT is the price saints would sell IF IF they were to sell, NOT that they would have to sell. AND Ron has already stated Morgan will NOT be sold.
Don't forget, Money swears it doesn't just talk.

I am not a good judge of footballing flesh so can someone advise me about Jack Cork. I think he is rock solid and dependable and a proven goal scorer (well, maybe) and I like him on the field

Isn't he good enough for us to keep him on a longer contract?

Is he not quite first class - more an upper second?

I absolutely don't know why he isn't a first choice. Please help
Because Saints is spoilt for choice in MF players I reckon, and they can't all be on the team sheet on a Saturday. It's a position managers like to be in but if you were manager who could/would you leave out?
The managers' decision won't be done on who he likes it will be done on a variety of sources of info - starting with fitness and followed by many which I wouldn't consider 'cos they're the pros and I'm not. I personally think Cork is good enough to force way to a first eleven or bench start most Saturdays (providing he's fit) and will get a fair chance to stake his claim but just look at our MF - it has to be one of the best in the PL. BTW just heard on SKY that the French MF is being brought into Spuds because he's offering better value for money than Spyder so let's hope that's the end of that until the Jan sales at least. The downside for Corkie is that it's even more competition for his shirt.

Personally I think Fonte is vastly overrated, and as ood a centre back as we've had in years; why people want to upgrade him I don't know. There was one of those articles on opta stats in the close season rating overseas players, and he was I think the 3rd best non-English player in the premier league. How on earth are we going to improve on that!

Great to have 4 top-class centre backs, as long as you can keep them all happy, so Fonte & yoshida (he hasn't lost the shirt yet, so deserves to stay in possession) with Aberwhatsit and the Romanian guy waiting to come in, wth young Jack Stpehens for the future, ship Hoover back to Celtic, looks good to me - as I said, as long as they are all happy, and as long as Fonte is given a fair crack of the whip!

Tottenham Hotspur are nearing a deal with Sadio Mane, according to the Metro. Spurs would pay Red Bull Salzburg £11.8 million, which is a bit fishy seeing as the earlier reports were that Southampton had bid £15 million on the Senegal international. But Sky Sports News is reporting that Southampton have bid £11.8 million so odds are that the original £15 million bid was the phony report.

Underrated and good I agree. On Saturday you could see him really drive the team on from the back in the 2nd half. Alderweireld can cover right back too which seems a decent addition seeing as we lost chambers.

I don't think they'd be bothered to be honest, or about Townsend. It's a bit like us - quite happy with whatever our former players do as long as we chose to get rid of them.

Dean Hammond for example - good luck to the guy. He'll get a hero's welcome when he comes back.

And, by the way, is anybody else flabbergasted that David Nugent is seriously playing in the Premier League?? Defies belief that he can get a game at this level.

True, all the news says arsenal or QPR, now I think the spuds might get upset if he went to the Gunners, sure he will end up back with dear old Harry though.

The rumor mill news just in,

Tottenham Hotspur are nearing a deal with Sadio Mane, according to the Metro. Spurs would pay Red Bull Salzburg £11.8 million, which is a bit fishy seeing as the earlier reports were that Southampton had bid £15 million on the Senegal international. But Sky Sports News is reporting that Southampton have bid £11.8 million so odds are that the original £15 million bid was the phony report.
Find the price tag for someone playing in Austria a bit fishy generally to be honest - can't see how he'd be attracting initial bids of that level.

Some bizarre fees this transfer window - hear the reporter on Sky this morning saying Welbeck would go on a permanent deal for about £6M. Doesn't add up to me.

Remy for £12M is more understandable because I believe he and his agent are pocketing a lot in extras and wages.

As for Mane - could this be someone driving up the price or just putting pressure on it going through? We'll see.

Either way, and especially following the speculation from last week, I'm not going to get too flustered about any rumoured outgoings or incomings until the deals are official or I've seen them on TV at the training grounds. Far too much wasted energy, although it's impossible not to get excited on deadline day.

Sh!te, I meant to say that Fonte is vastly UNDER rated - I think he's a bit like Claus; he made the people around him look better than they were. And I love the fact that he's been with us from the start, even dropping down a division to be with us because he saw the long-term picture before a lot of others in football.

Sorry Jose! Baby!

The best business we can do today is hang on to Schneiderlin and Cork. Holding on to these two will just improve our chances of at least a mid table position. We do however need another front man and defender and if we can get loanees with an option to buy that sounds like good business. Rather than panic buys.
Great to see Spurs get thrashed by Liverpool, but sad to see Ricky stuck on the bench. Perhaps we could get him back on loan!

To be fair Hoover is a very capable Championship defender. As with Sharp I'd be happy to see him playing and doing well.

Like Hammond I could see him winning promotion with another club.

People can say we lack ambition, but I look like we are closing this window with far less dead wood around the squad than we've maybe ever had. Our bench and wider squad is certainly going to look considerably stronger in all areas (subject to any annoying outgoings in the next 10 hours) and I don't think anyone can argue about that - although open to suggestions.

Yeah, can't he buy a season ticket at Liverpool like everyone else? Seems unfair that the club has to pay him to watch games.

In all fairness it is very sad because he's better than that - he really is never going to get the recognition at Liverpool because he will only ever get five minutes if that, and only when the team is either in trouble or out of sight.

You have to feel it will be the same for England. Hardly the fairy tale it seemed to be. Feel for him, but at the same time he must have known this is what he was buying into - football tourism and just checking off a few things on his bucket list: goal at Anfield, Champions League appearance, maybe a part in the odd big game if only for 5 minutes.

And, when he looks back on it as a Liverpool fan, maybe that will just add a little icing on the cake of a career he can be really proud of.

The irony of this transfer window, is seeing Roy Hodgson squirm at the way we have lost so many players.
Having said, during the summer, that players needed to be playing at the highest level, and players will always move to bigger clubs, he is now sh!tting himself knowing that the four England players that left us, are no longer (virtually) guaranteed first team football.

Serves you right, Roy.

Great to have 4 top-class centre backs, as long as you can keep them all happy, so Fonte & yoshida (he hasn't lost the shirt yet, so deserves to stay in possession) with Aberwhatsit and the Romanian guy waiting to come in, wth young Jack Stpehens for the future, ship Hoover back to Celtic, looks good to me - as I said, as long as they are all happy, and as long as Fonte is given a fair crack of the whip!
Overrated/ underrated I know what you mean.

I purchased a Wombles pepper mill. It is rubbish.

I’ve been watching Sky Sports News all day so far. They are far more reliable than almost all other sources and they say that there are far more false stories out there today than true ones, particularly involving Spuds. As the Echo reports on most of the rumours going around and many of you do not have Sky, I thought I’d give a brief summary.
Spuds have not bid for JayRod.
Spuds are not tabling a swap deal with JayRod for Townsend.
Southampton no longer have an interest in Townsend.
Spuds have not hijacked our deal for Sadio Mane with a £12m bid.
Arsensal have not bid for Morgan.
No team has bid for Jack Cork.
Toby Alderweireld is on his way for a medical with us.
Sadio Mane will (seemingly) be flying in later today for talks with us.
We seem to be involved in advanced discussions for Nathan Redmond.
We still seem to have continuing interest in Virgil van Dijk abd Ron Vlaar.
Not all the above can be true and things can still change but it looks like any last minute surprises are far more likely to be pleasant ones.
I’ll post another update this evening.

PS The "old" news about Taider leaving is also confirmed by Sky.

Okay this makes me a little less jittery. They make it sound like a done deal.
Got to be optimistic about this one - the buys we've made based on Ron's personal knowledge are looking very astute signings (and so are the others to be perfectly honest). The fee for Shane is the only thing that's raised eyebrows, but I also see him as a good addition that aside. I don't count Taider because I think that was a spur of the minute punt they offered during negotiations on Oz and I doubt we did any scouting on him.

Anyone questioning our transfer hit rate needs to look at Newcastle by the way - how many players have they signed who have been quietly left or are playing in the reserves. They must have half the population of France on that training ground.

Surely you must have read my rant about Jack Cork a few days back. I got minus 120 for that one. If you need any tips don't be frightened to ask!!

Hey mate I'm not all bad. I've had a couple of p!us 100s in the past too. Even if I'd had minus 1000 I would still believe that what I said was true. You may not have liked the tone of it but judging by the comments from many others they cannot understand what is going on with JC either. It's even stranger now as we appear to have turned down £6mill for him when he has only 10 months left on his contract. So that is why I_called RKs comments "wishy washy" . There is clearly something going on here which we arn' t being told about. The club clearly rates_him otherwise they would have taken the money. So maybe he is demanding more game time(which we clearly can't guarantee) or he has simply told them not to offer a new contract as he won't sign it. Who knows? Personally I' m hoping the club are trying to convince him that good times are ahead and that they get him to commit. He's too good to allow to go on a free. Either way keep watching this space. I like being controversial.:-)

I’ve been watching Sky Sports News all day so far. They are far more reliable than almost all other sources and they say that there are far more false stories out there today than true ones, particularly involving Spuds. As the Echo reports on most of the rumours going around and many of you do not have Sky, I thought I’d give a brief summary.
Spuds have not bid for JayRod.
Spuds are not tabling a swap deal with JayRod for Townsend.
Southampton no longer have an interest in Townsend.
Spuds have not hijacked our deal for Sadio Mane with a £12m bid.
Arsensal have not bid for Morgan.
No team has bid for Jack Cork.
Toby Alderweireld is on his way for a medical with us.
Sadio Mane will (seemingly) be flying in later today for talks with us.
We seem to be involved in advanced discussions for Nathan Redmond.
We still seem to have continuing interest in Virgil van Dijk abd Ron Vlaar.
Not all the above can be true and things can still change but it looks like any last minute surprises are far more likely to be pleasant ones.
I’ll post another update this evening.

PS The "old" news about Taider leaving is also confirmed by Sky.
UPDATE:

Sky confirm that Celtic say that Virgil van Dijk is staying with them (Echo posted this too at 1525).

Sky also say that Villa have said the same about Ron Vlaar but they've said that every day for a month now!

Sky have no reports about the rumoured ManU bid for Morgan. Probably yet another vicious rumour.

I will be glad when this bl@@dy window closes, things seem to be going well and history being a saints fan usually tells me something shyte is about to happen, I really hope not, if we can get the couple more we are linked with and only Taider goes it will be job well done.

Sky update: Yes, both Alderweireld and Mane have medicals but not at St Mary's. Mane is still not in this country - so I assume we have club representatives conducting the medal and with papers to be signed out in Salzburg. Not sure where Alderweirelds is having his done. Anyway, 2 more great signings for us, espected to be completed in next couple of hours. Not sure if that's it but no players are leaving today.

Hey mate I'm not all bad. I've had a couple of p!us 100s in the past too. Even if I'd had minus 1000 I would still believe that what I said was true. You may not have liked the tone of it but judging by the comments from many others they cannot understand what is going on with JC either. It's even stranger now as we appear to have turned down £6mill for him when he has only 10 months left on his contract. So that is why I_called RKs comments "wishy washy" . There is clearly something going on here which we arn' t being told about. The club clearly rates_him otherwise they would have taken the money. So maybe he is demanding more game time(which we clearly can't guarantee) or he has simply told them not to offer a new contract as he won't sign it. Who knows? Personally I' m hoping the club are trying to convince him that good times are ahead and that they get him to commit. He's too good to allow to go on a free. Either way keep watching this space. I like being controversial.:-)
Reading your post has reminded me I was rude on that thread and apologise, reading it I must of been having a bad day.
Don't worry about it mate. My pseudonym is specifically designed to invite such comments so they don' come as a surprise.

I will be glad when this bl@@dy window closes, things seem to be going well and history being a saints fan usually tells me something shyte is about to happen, I really hope not, if we can get the couple more we are linked with and only Taider goes it will be job well done.

Keep them fingers crossed.
You've got to admit it's about ten times more exciting than the last one was though,when we were all sat wringing our hands waiting for news (that never came) of a new GK,CB and striker though.
I agree, bit tense though.

As you know from my posts I think the guys have done a Stirling job, why do you think it's so much more exciting this year.
Because we are actually in the mix,and any news is good news as they say..given the the high profile prominence the BBC like to give us..sorry,I'll get started on a rant in a minute...and,breathe

Profile of the new manager opens more doors?

Good business in the boardroom generating good transfer funds?

They have always had the circle of clubs and it wouldn't matter where we were in relation to those clubs we would still be right down the pecking order.

With Alderweireld and Mane nailed on to sign, Ramirez undergoing rehabilitation under RoKo, J-Rod due back from injury and a host of excellent other additions to the squad we have an incredibly exciting season ahead.

The board have kept good on their word to reinvest and keep the ambition going. Roko is clearly as ambitious as the club is so I see absolutely no reason to be anything other than totally over the moon tonight.

We have also held onto Morgan, let go Rickie for good money and a reduction in age bill, off-loaded Osvaldo and got 27 million for an unfit left back!

It's all win-win as I see it!!!!! COYS!

Some body posted on here earlier that Redmond is quick but not much else (Norwich fans) Maybe we had a lucky escape mate.

Interestingly, this morning, some we're reporting that 'Tottenham' had one the 'race' to sign Mane, with 'several' PL clubs interested in signing him. If we get him well done LR and Co.
Young Sinclair went to Scotland on loan but Sky are saying that's our business concluded for the day and as far as they're concerned the two players are ours.

Surely you must have read my rant about Jack Cork a few days back. I got minus 120 for that one. If you need any tips don't be frightened to ask!!
Respect where it's due mate, you over achieved on that one - pretty clever after all then eh!?
If you can repeat that I'll take back everything I said and maybe 50% of what I thought ;-)
Hey mate I'm not all bad. I've had a couple of p!us 100s in the past too. Even if I'd had minus 1000 I would still believe that what I said was true. You may not have liked the tone of it but judging by the comments from many others they cannot understand what is going on with JC either. It's even stranger now as we appear to have turned down £6mill for him when he has only 10 months left on his contract. So that is why I_called RKs comments "wishy washy" . There is clearly something going on here which we arn' t being told about. The club clearly rates_him otherwise they would have taken the money. So maybe he is demanding more game time(which we clearly can't guarantee) or he has simply told them not to offer a new contract as he won't sign it. Who knows? Personally I' m hoping the club are trying to convince him that good times are ahead and that they get him to commit. He's too good to allow to go on a free. Either way keep watching this space. I like being controversial.:-)
Reading your post has reminded me I was rude on that thread and apologise, reading it I must of been having a bad day.
Don't worry about it mate. My pseudonym is specifically designed to invite such comments so they don' come as a surprise.
Cheers

I will be glad when this bl@@dy window closes, things seem to be going well and history being a saints fan usually tells me something shyte is about to happen, I really hope not, if we can get the couple more we are linked with and only Taider goes it will be job well done.

Keep them fingers crossed.
You've got to admit it's about ten times more exciting than the last one was though,when we were all sat wringing our hands waiting for news (that never came) of a new GK,CB and striker though.
I agree, bit tense though.

As you know from my posts I think the guys have done a Stirling job, why do you think it's so much more exciting this year.
'cos Guly is gone?
The echo are reporting we are buying him back to take the pressure off Pelle.

Saints latest On BBC

Posted at 17:14
Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld and Salzburg midfielder Sadio Mane are both having medicals at Southampton.
When these 2 sign is our 'squad' stronger than last year ? Do we then credit RK and new board with what they have delivered come end of transfer window ?
Surely this can't be so. We were told on good authority,by many 'neggies' over a period of a couple of months that,F** K** and her bunch of cronies, were going to asset strip the club by selling all the players, pocketing the proceeds and sell the stadium,very strange how all the so called supporters that made these ridiculous have gone AWOL.
I salute all you 'happy clappers' that stood by your club,and took all the flack at our lowest point over the summer months,very well done guys.
It would be so nice if some of the neggies came out from hiding,and apologised to KL, RK and LR, but I won't be holding my breath.

Some body posted on here earlier that Redmond is quick but not much else (Norwich fans) Maybe we had a lucky escape mate.
Possibly, but at age 20, technique can be installed. Took walcott a while but he got there.

What do you have to do to annoy people around here?
Surely you must have read my rant about Jack Cork a few days back. I got minus 120 for that one. If you need any tips don't be frightened to ask!!
Respect where it's due mate, you over achieved on that one - pretty clever after all then eh!?
If you can repeat that I'll take back everything I said and maybe 50% of what I thought ;-)
Hey mate I'm not all bad. I've had a couple of p!us 100s in the past too. Even if I'd had minus 1000 I would still believe that what I said was true. You may not have liked the tone of it but judging by the comments from many others they cannot understand what is going on with JC either. It's even stranger now as we appear to have turned down £6mill for him when he has only 10 months left on his contract. So that is why I_called RKs comments "wishy washy" . There is clearly something going on here which we arn' t being told about. The club clearly rates_him otherwise they would have taken the money. So maybe he is demanding more game time(which we clearly can't guarantee) or he has simply told them not to offer a new contract as he won't sign it. Who knows? Personally I' m hoping the club are trying to convince him that good times are ahead and that they get him to commit. He's too good to allow to go on a free. Either way keep watching this space. I like being controversial.:-)
Reading your post has reminded me I was rude on that thread and apologise, reading it I must of been having a bad day.
Don't worry about it mate. My pseudonym is specifically designed to invite such comments so they don' come as a surprise.
Cheers

I will be glad when this bl@@dy window closes, things seem to be going well and history being a saints fan usually tells me something shyte is about to happen, I really hope not, if we can get the couple more we are linked with and only Taider goes it will be job well done.

Keep them fingers crossed.
You've got to admit it's about ten times more exciting than the last one was though,when we were all sat wringing our hands waiting for news (that never came) of a new GK,CB and striker though.
I agree, bit tense though.

As you know from my posts I think the guys have done a Stirling job, why do you think it's so much more exciting this year.
Because we are actually in the mix,and any news is good news as they say..given the the high profile prominence the BBC like to give us..sorry,I'll get started on a rant in a minute...and,breathe

...
Could the club not be waiting until the end of deadline day to put their cards on the table as far as Corkie is concerned ......... Might we be pleasantly surprised if they put a deal together after this mad Summer Window final closes !!

A trait of happy clappers like me is that we are always prepared to forgive especially when someone has been big enough to accept they were wrong. Yes we did have a difficult summer and most of us were understandably worried. I always try to look on the bright side in these situations. Some, however, expressed their concerns by making wild accusations and blaming the board. It was the hateful and sometimes slanderous comments that were so offensive and unreasonable. We did have a great team but we are now building an even greater team under our best ever manager. Our squad is significantly deeper than last season with good cover in most positions. I would say stronger too but Ronko needs to get a few more games under his belt to prove that to everyone. We are in a much stronger position financially too. Great times ahead. Time for past neggies to reform like you and we can all unite in supporting our great club.

"Spuds-u-don't-like" and Poch have really made a mess of this transfer window. They were so obsessed with signing Morgan, JayRod and earlier several of our L'pool wantaways, that they missed out on other transfer opportunities. I'm not sure if today's false rumours about JayRod was another attempt to unsettle things but it certainly back-fired on them. There have been too many rumours relating to Spuds and us over the last few weeks and again right through today - this cannot be a coincidence. It was even rumoured that they had hijacked the Sadio Mane deal today. This report was probably too late to be the agent trying to up the price. Anyway, sinister or not, its all worked out very well for us, Now to finish well above them this season.

Firmly second all said here.

As a possie I have at times been rude in defense of our board so while we are all looking to go forward to anyone I have upset I apologise.

Let's get behind saints collectively in what I think is going to be exciting and fruitful times.

It was even rumoured that they had hijacked the Sadio Mane deal today. This report was probably too late to be the agent trying to up the price. Anyway, sinister or not, its all worked out very well for us, Now to finish well above them this season.
I am not trying to a job on him because he left (well maybe a little bit then) but when they announced we were replacing Adkins with a a guy called pochetino I and my two boys had never heard of him, you have to of been living in a cave and sh!ting in a bucket for the last 20 years to not of heard of. Rondo.

It could be that's the reason our transfer fortunes have improved and spuds have gone down the tubes.

Shouldn't laugh.
Ronko not Rondo
On the otherhand at bit of Mozart's Rondo and a nice glass of Chablis might be the perfect way to celebrate a great last few days!

A trait of happy clappers like me is that we are always prepared to forgive especially when someone has been big enough to accept they were wrong. Yes we did have a difficult summer and most of us were understandably worried. I always try to look on the bright side in these situations. Some, however, expressed their concerns by making wild accusations and blaming the board. It was the hateful and sometimes slanderous comments that were so offensive and unreasonable. We did have a great team but we are now building an even greater team under our best ever manager. Our squad is significantly deeper than last season with good cover in most positions. I would say stronger too but Ronko needs to get a few more games under his belt to prove that to everyone. We are in a much stronger position financially too. Great times ahead. Time for past neggies to reform like you and we can all unite in supporting our great club.
Firmly second all said here.

As a possie I have at times been rude in defense of our board so while we are all looking to go forward to anyone I have upset I apologise.

Let's get behind saints collectively in what I think is going to be exciting and fruitful times.

Up the saints.
Yes, I feel I owe all the positive posters, of the past few months an apology too. Sorry, I was wrong.

Yes but I'm still a little concerned. Taking out a bit of our incoming transfer money to pay for wages and keeping a little in reserve for the January window, I believe that we still have £4.98p left available. Don't tell the asset stripper theorists or we'll never hear the end of it. Anyway in order to overcome this problem I've been researching who we could get for this outstanding amount. I took a quick look at the skunt squad but couldn't find anybody worth £4.98. Actually I valued the entire first team starters and the total value was around £4.40(40peach). This still leaves £0.58 pence and anyway the squad would be too big. So I've emailed Les and suggested we donate the entire £4.98 to charity. Obviously this needs to be placed in a charity box as far away from Portsea Island as possible in order to avoid it being stolen.

Fascia, how you feeling tonight about everything - pretty happy I would imagine!?
Bit nervous just want the window to close.

Glad I stayed positive, not saying I wasn't as concerned as the next fan at times but have to say keeping Boruc, Spyder, Cork along with the players brought in, if we get the two reported targets it will of truly outstripped my expectations and must speak volumes about the owner, board and the manager.

To be honest I think it's fantastic, how about you?

It could be that's the reason our transfer fortunes have improved and spuds have gone down the tubes.

Shouldn't laugh.
Ronko not Rondo
On the otherhand at bit of Mozart's Rondo and a nice glass of Chablis might be the perfect way to celebrate a great last few days!
Thin Lizzy and a glass off Chablis (my favourite band and favourite wine) will be in order when the bl@@dy window closes.

Yep, totally agree, once these deals are done and dusted I think we will sit back and look at a truly competitive squad with a plan A, B, C and D available!

Like I said the other night I loved the Cortese era and everything last season but just think we were living a lie, although we didn't realise it, because none of our 'stars' were committed long term. The nonsense these players spouted about the 'project having changed' was, as we all said, just a ruse to justify their own mercenary ambitions.

I love the way Roko talks, the statement about Taider is brilliant and the club knew all along that Spyder was actually the jewell in our crown. To have come so far since we lost all those players in July is honestly remarkable but here's a question; will Sky give us any coverage tonight? Will the club be given credit by the media after the slating we've had this Summer? I guess the answer is who cares, but I feel very aggrieved about the way we have been portrayed and I think we now very much have a point to prove!

Tottenham Hotspur offer £15 million plus Andros Townsend for Jay Rodriguez.

ProSoccerTalk can reveal that Tottenham Hotspur have made a third bid for Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez.

Saints, who have insisted Rodriguez is not for sale, rejected the last two bids but Spurs are testing the South Coast clubs nerve with an improved offer just hours before the deadline slams shut. Ronald Koeman is in the market for a winger and Saints have been linked with Townsend for several weeks. If they can get £15 million plus an England international winger for a player who is currently injured and has had one breakout season in the PL, maybe that is good business for Saints.

It is unlikely that Saints will sell but an offer this good would be very hard to turn down.

Obviously getting a win and being in the top 10 helps, and helps keep a calm head, but we seem to have known who we wanted and just are just calmly seeing them across the line. Confident that unless they muck about over wages we'll get both our targets, who knows, maybe another. And I can't see anyone leaving now - happy days. But won't speak too soon.

Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld and Salzburg midfielder Sadio Mane are both having medicals at Southampton.
When these 2 sign is our 'squad' stronger than last year ? Do we then credit RK and new board with what they have delivered come end of transfer window ?
Surely this can't be so. We were told on good authority,by many 'neggies' over a period of a couple of months that,F** K** and her bunch of cronies, were going to asset strip the club by selling all the players, pocketing the proceeds and sell the stadium,very strange how all the so called supporters that made these ridiculous have gone AWOL.
I salute all you 'happy clappers' that stood by your club,and took all the flack at our lowest point over the summer months,very well done guys.
It would be so nice if some of the neggies came out from hiding,and apologised to KL, RK and LR, but I won't be holding my breath.

A trait of happy clappers like me is that we are always prepared to forgive especially when someone has been big enough to accept they were wrong. Yes we did have a difficult summer and most of us were understandably worried. I always try to look on the bright side in these situations. Some, however, expressed their concerns by making wild accusations and blaming the board. It was the hateful and sometimes slanderous comments that were so offensive and unreasonable. We did have a great team but we are now building an even greater team under our best ever manager. Our squad is significantly deeper than last season with good cover in most positions. I would say stronger too but Ronko needs to get a few more games under his belt to prove that to everyone. We are in a much stronger position financially too. Great times ahead. Time for past neggies to reform like you and we can all unite in supporting our great club.
Firmly second all said here.

As a possie I have at times been rude in defense of our board so while we are all looking to go forward to anyone I have upset I apologise.

Let's get behind saints collectively in what I think is going to be exciting and fruitful times.

Up the saints.
Fascia, how you feeling tonight about everything - pretty happy I would imagine!?
Bit nervous just want the window to close.

Glad I stayed positive, not saying I wasn't as concerned as the next fan at times but have to say keeping Boruc, Spyder, Cork along with the players brought in, if we get the two reported targets it will of truly outstripped my expectations and must speak volumes about the owner, board and the manager.

To be honest I think it's fantastic, how about you?
Yep, totally agree, once these deals are done and dusted I think we will sit back and look at a truly competitive squad with a plan A, B, C and D available!

Like I said the other night I loved the Cortese era and everything last season but just think we were living a lie, although we didn't realise it, because none of our 'stars' were committed long term. The nonsense these players spouted about the 'project having changed' was, as we all said, just a ruse to justify their own mercenary ambitions.

I love the way Roko talks, the statement about Taider is brilliant and the club knew all along that Spyder was actually the jewell in our crown. To have come so far since we lost all those players in July is honestly remarkable but here's a question; will Sky give us any coverage tonight? Will the club be given credit by the media after the slating we've had this Summer? I guess the answer is who cares, but I feel very aggrieved about the way we have been portrayed and I think we now very much have a point to prove!
It does seem to of been a well orchestrated assault, papers, television, clubs ex players commenting on how well our players would fit their ex clubs, that bit gets up my nose most those guys on TV and should be impartial, the ex skiverpool lot were the worst, as you say i do hope they have the nuts to report what a Stirling job in the face of huge adversity the club has done.

I could wax lyrical but have said enough over the weeks just so happy it has come out so well, I can't see we anyone can have anything but total faith in Ronko and his team.

Time for a Chablis.

Yeah they are panicking and we don't want Townsend anyway. The good thing is they are upping JRod's value every time they panic a little bit more.

It could be that's the reason our transfer fortunes have improved and spuds have gone down the tubes.

Shouldn't laugh.
Ronko not Rondo
On the otherhand at bit of Mozart's Rondo and a nice glass of Chablis might be the perfect way to celebrate a great last few days!
Thin Lizzy and a glass off Chablis (my favourite band and favourite wine) will be in order when the bl@@dy window closes.
The boys are back in town!
There's whisky in the jar and I will be dancing in the moonlight tonight.

No-one ever really knows what consequences can arise in the future from events which happen today - negative or positive or both. But in a way both outlooks can be valuable.

Possies invented the aeroplane. However, but for the neggies, we'd never have had the parachute.
and for those still worried - the back-up or reserve parachute. Although surely nobody is think that we'll need a parachute payment for next season. I'm flying high right now and probably not making sense after the 3rd glass of Chablis (see earlier posts if you're puzzled).

Think someone obviously got Gaston mixed up with Ben Arfa - apparently they are asking about his availability for a loan deal.

Mane looks an interesting player in the Sterling, Townsend, Redmond mould - got pace and skill unquestionably.

Wingers are always one of the biggest punts you can make in term of attitude and whether they have the strength and consistency, and whether you can trust them defensively, but he'll give the squad something we haven't got an abundance of - frightening pace running with the ball.

Would prefer loan with option to buy but, hey. One thing's for sure following Taider, Ron will make it clear he's not coming for a holiday.

Don't believe the Hull rumour for one minute - Ron said he wants to keep him and stopped him leaving for Spain, so that's good enough for me.

I think he DID agree to the move but was very reluctant. I think he agreed to it only because it enabled the club to pay the staff, who hadn't been paid for several weeks.

That was 1 July 2009. Most of what's happened in the 5 years since has been good, and it looks like it might be getting even better this evening.

Time for past neggies to reform like you and we can all unite in supporting our great club.[/p][/quote]Firmly second all said here. As a possie I have at times been rude in defense of our board so while we are all looking to go forward to anyone I have upset I apologise. Let's get behind saints collectively in what I think is going to be exciting and fruitful times. Up the saints.[/p][/quote]Fascia, how you feeling tonight about everything - pretty happy I would imagine!?[/p][/quote]Bit nervous just want the window to close. Glad I stayed positive, not saying I wasn't as concerned as the next fan at times but have to say keeping Boruc, Spyder, Cork along with the players brought in, if we get the two reported targets it will of truly outstripped my expectations and must speak volumes about the owner, board and the manager. To be honest I think it's fantastic, how about you?[/p][/quote]Yep, totally agree, once these deals are done and dusted I think we will sit back and look at a truly competitive squad with a plan A, B, C and D available! Like I said the other night I loved the Cortese era and everything last season but just think we were living a lie, although we didn't realise it, because none of our 'stars' were committed long term. The nonsense these players spouted about the 'project having changed' was, as we all said, just a ruse to justify their own mercenary ambitions. I love the way Roko talks, the statement about Taider is brilliant and the club knew all along that Spyder was actually the jewell in our crown. To have come so far since we lost all those players in July is honestly remarkable but here's a question; will Sky give us any coverage tonight? Will the club be given credit by the media after the slating we've had this Summer? I guess the answer is who cares, but I feel very aggrieved about the way we have been portrayed and I think we now very much have a point to prove![/p][/quote]Great comment again. The future looks good. Want these 2 deals over the line ASAP. COYR07

I can't give enough credit for everyone involved if Toby and Mane are as good in reality as they are on paper. These signings definately exceeded my expectations. I have renewed faith that we definately have the potential to do as good or better than last season if these players and our existing squad work out. WELL DONE SAINTS!!!! I did hear though that Toby has undergone the medical, but hasn't put pen to paper yet?

My only question mark over our squad was how Shane Long would fit in - I think this move answers that - he wouldn't have Gaston had stayed in the team.

The slight question mark has to be though - how long were we going to give him to fire? I can't say I ever had total confidence that he'd come on and change the game for us consistently and, on his wages, maybe its not such a bad thing, especially if he's not putting the necessary Koemann graft in. Slightly disappointed, but if loaning Gaston is our only outgoing today I won't be losing any sleep.

Strange in a way, but, when you think about it, not really.

The midfield is a bit overbooked right now, so this is a good way of giving him a season getting a lot of game time while freeing up a space in the squad. Meanwhile, he can be quite effective aiding the downfall of some of our rivals such as, say, (not picking any teams particularly), Liverpool and Spuds.

It also sends a two-fingered message to the media kn0bs; 'Hey! look at us, we're Southampton, you reckoned we were doomed yet here we are allowing one of our big-name players to go on loan to Hull.'

Yes but I don't believe there is any buy option at the end. Just think about this. We are now spoilt for choice in midfield. Gaston, who I like and thought was on the verge of giving something back to the club, would probably only get a handful of games or part games with us this season. He'll probably get a lot of game time at Hull. If he breaks through and has a successful season, we can always have him back later on.

Very positive. Personally I'm gutted. Always hoped he'd become a great player for us.

In short, shipping out a 23 year old who cost £12m is not good. The only more baffling thing this transfer window was us paying £12m for a non-scoring forward in Long.

Out of interest - how long has Gaston got left on his deal? That will be three years he's been at the club and I can only remember a handful of games. I think that kind of puts this deal into perspective.

Do you think if we all collectively think 'Don't sell Jack Cork' at the same time it will avoid any last minute surprises? Happy Clappers are winning, 89th minute...

Strange in a way, but, when you think about it, not really.

The midfield is a bit overbooked right now, so this is a good way of giving him a season getting a lot of game time while freeing up a space in the squad. Meanwhile, he can be quite effective aiding the downfall of some of our rivals such as, say, (not picking any teams particularly), Liverpool and Spuds.

It also sends a two-fingered message to the media kn0bs; 'Hey! look at us, we're Southampton, you reckoned we were doomed yet here we are allowing one of our big-name players to go on loan to Hull.'

You are all very patient, I think!

But again, does this not highlight how ridiculous the transfer window has become. I finally blew when I saw the pictures of Falcao flying into Manchester in a private jet and SAINTJD informing us he will be on £300,000 a week. Makes you cry.

I appreciate the thought behind the window, I think. Presumably, it is to stop the big clubs buying in ensure a top finish and if any of them faced relegation, could buy in and get an unfair advantage.

Then we do it all again in January. There must be a better way, surely.

I appreciate your concern, but if you think about that for a second. You're essentially saying give Gaston more time to prove himself after two years of false starts and injuries and you're essentially saying you've made your mind up on Shane after less than two full games in a Saints shirt.

I take your point on the fee too - but Gaston cost us about the same so I think time will tell which deal we were mugged off on. Personally I think Shane will offer us more value for money because at the very least you know he'll give it 100% every game.

Ramirez has completed his move to Hull on a season-long loan. We understand he wanted first-team football, but couldn't be guaranteed that at Saints, especially with the impending arrival of Sadio Mane.

Gaston deal is 100% confirmed (Bruce has released a statement about it) and would be amazed if the others don't sign for us - you don't come over for a medical without having the intention to finish the deal. I'd be surprised if they weren't already signed.

To be honest I see both as bonus signings, but would be nice to get them in.

If your deal hasn't gone through yet - don't panic!

Clubs sometimes conclude deals at the last minute and it is not always easy for them to get everything completed and sent over by 11pm. The so called 'deal sheet' allows a club to confirm that a deal has been reached in order to allow for additional time to submit the remaining documentation.

The sheet cannot be used prior to 21:00 BST and needs to arrive fully completed before the transfer window closes. Once the sheet arrives, clubs have got until 1am in which to submit the full paperwork.

So don't go to bed yet...

To be honest it's been a hard week for the neggies, so the odd stealth thumbs down is the only guilty pleasure left. Think of it as a kind of nicotine patch for neggies with withdrawal symptoms.

As you stated nobody left who the club wanted to keep hold of and the incomming players all appear to be high quality replacements for the traitorous money grabbing individuals who left. Now we should give them time to settle in and then we can try to finish higher than both Todgerham Hotsperm and Liverhampton, I know its a long shot but how good would that feel.

Its true what they say, its never easy being a Saints supporter, but in truthi wouldnt have it any other way.

When Gaston was good, he was very, very good.

When he wasn't (which was more often than he was good) he wasn't.

Gaston is not and would not have been a deal breaker for any success that Saints can expect this season.

Good business.

If Gaston can master the EPL with someone else and with good results, let's have him back.

If not, let him go.

Sometimes I think too many of the people on this site treat players like their own kids.

RK doesn't; nor does Roko; nor does Les.

As a lifetime Saints fan, I don't either; it's about the club, the team and the results, not individuals.

It's a game; it's a business.

You either fit or you don't.

If you don't, you should go.

I think the fact we've just let two defenders and a potential wide attacker go out on loan suggests our two big deals were tied up in good time. Shame we couldn't get confirmation but good news.

And, even if that doesn't happen... newsflash, dancing in the streets: unless something else hasn't been announced, we seem to have kept Cork, Boruc, Jay Rod and Spider - almost as good as new signings!

Sorry, better than new signings - we know 100% they are quality. We have a world class central midfielder, another versatile quality central midfielder, quality attacker, quality back-up keeper.

A successful final day for the Saints (still don't quite want to jump the gun, but looks that way).

According to this, we have less than an hour.

Clubs sometimes conclude deals at the last minute and it is not always easy for them to get everything completed and sent over by 11pm. The deal sheet allows a club to confirm that a deal has been reached in order to allow for additional time to submit the remaining documentation. The sheet cannot be used prior to 9pm and needs to arrive fully completed before the transfer window closes. Once the sheet arrives, clubs have got until 1am in which to submit the full paperwork. But if a club are looking to complete an international transfer, it still has to comply with the FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) deadline of midnight.

If Toby has signed, why haven't DE put a page up after doing so for the departures of Gaston and Hooiveld? Bad form.

The Gaston deal makes sense to me. It's a season-long loan with no option to buy which gives him a year to play and get stronger and sharper and then come back to us. It suits both parties,
Got a thumbs down? Wtf

Would of liked him to stay but you are right and a year playing regular footy in the premiership not in Spain.
Wow, you've got a thumbs down too. I think in these circumstances we can only really turn to the wisdom of Taylor Swift as espoused in her new single 'Shake It Off': "The players gonna play and the haters gonna hate; I'm just gonna shake it off."

Words to live by and WHAT a tune.
I think you might get some thumbs down for the Taylor Swift review :)

To be honest it's been a hard week for the neggies, so the odd stealth thumbs down is the only guilty pleasure left. Think of it as a kind of nicotine patch for neggies with withdrawal symptoms.
I'm not having that. I'm willing to have my football expertise called into question but I am literally never wrong about pop music. That new Taylor Swift tune is an absolute worldie.
Mmmmmm
Seriously, google it. You know when Milkshake or Hey Ya or Biology or Poker Face came out and you thought "Some clever bugger has changed pop music and life will never be the same again"? Well Swifto has totally done one of those. It's WELL good.
I think our footballing views are very close but musically listening to Taylor Swift would be like going to Frapton Park.
For my football

Missed that bit off bl00dy Chablis.
