Record signing set for first Saints start

Daily Echo: GASTON RAMIREZ GASTON RAMIREZ

Record signing Gaston Ramirez is hoping for a first start for Saints against Aston Villa tomorrow.

The £12m man made his bow as a half time substitute in the 6-1 defeat at Arsenal with Saints having already conceded four goals by then.

Though the game was already virtually lost by that stage, his presence did produce a few brighter moments for the beleaguered side at the Emirates Stadium.

Ramirez could hardly have been considered for a start in the game against the Gunners having only just met his teammates following a long trip back from Uruguay where he was on intentional duty.

But with a week of acclimatisation under his belt, he is set to feature at St Mary’s.

It will be a big moment for Ramirez but also huge for the club who are banking on his inspiration to help them to their first points of the season.

Lamert will rue the day Ramirez signed for Saints.

I see Poopey have signed on short-term contracts a Japanese and an Italian player. From the sound of it, Nikamota and Robatelli should soon feel at home in the area.
