    With the majority of the Saints "circus" slumming it in the North of England ready for the Wigan game there will probably not be much activity in St. Marys. Would love a couple of reasonable class signings but it's not looking very likely.

    I think the Echo reporters should hang around Southampton Airport and the local service stations as that's where all the rumours come from on transfer deadline day, my mates wifes sister who works at the airport just saw Cortese and Pochettino talking to Manuel Kickaball holding a contract!

    I heard that one. It would be fantastic if it happened, but I think the wages would be too much.

    Mind you, I guess you've heard that other rumour, you know, the footballer, two feet, one head, can run, tracks back, uses his feet in the tackle, knows where the goal is and could come on the cheap if the agent can talk him round.

    I sometimes think he believes he's collecting Panini stickers.

    He probably pastes a bit of valcro to their backs when they sign. Somewhere, he's probably got a big book where he keeps all his signings and is desolate when he has to leave them all behind and start again elsewhere.

    Still, Norge, look on the bright side, imagine how long your 'beating' list will be for QPR when we beat them at SMS - IF you add players to your fans list, that is.

    everytime i see redkrapp through that car window talking about player after player i want to punch him! and i am so glad he wasnt with us for too long. as for qpr this is their 4th prem transfer window and the 4th time they have made a lot of `big` signings, warnock tried it twice hughes tried it and now redkrapp is doing the same, when they go down their wage bill is going to cripple them, redkrapp will say its not his fault as it wasnt his squad, he has laid the groundwork for that excuse already. still it might dispel the myth of him being a great manager! 1 cup and 1 promotion in 30+ years as a manager.

    butland has turned down moves to chelski and mancity as he wants first team football, so that means he dosent think he is good enough to replace their current keepers, he cant be that confidant in his abilities then as most keepers think they are the best in the world. dont want him here now and glad we saved the millions we nearly spent!

Makes no logical sense to me really. Still believe sacking NA was more an ego issue with NC rather than "perfect timing" to help the team.

    Losing Courtinho to Liverpool was painful as he looked to be a good possession player. So if we offered 10.2M and missed out on him, then why not make a similar offer to another big name that could control the game?

    I have read articles that Celtic's price demands for Hooper have reduced and they may lose him on a free this summer anyhow. Why not make another move for him now since we were already willing to pay 8M for him just a few months ago. Unfortunately I think JR was a waste of money this past summer. He just does not look up to par for the Premiership.

    This happens because the England set up are not allowed to think creatively and will continue to reinforce failure year after year until new faces come in at the top level who actually want England to win and are prepared to make a decision, stick with it and drop the players who keep on failing at international level.

    Alicescat was neutered at a young age and I think this has been a real factor in this matter.

    COME ON, YOU KNOW ITS TRUE ..

    How many eunuchs do you know who play for Premier League teams ?

    I know there are quite a few who seem to lack any spherical organs at all especially when they put on an England shirt. Clearly the "operation" stops them from passing the ball (?!!) forward and only enables a sideways pass or a desperate return pass to the goalkeeper who has just rolled it to them.

    Mr Cortese has never answered any of my calls in this matter, which I have no problem with as he doesn't come across as a cat lover.

    I think there's a massive scandal being concealed here about this and I expect the Echo to investigate with all of its internationally recognised journalistic muscle. or they could go to the BBC website and look it up.. whatever !!

    If nothing was on the cards at all then the club would say so rather than needlessly keeping fans guessing and on edge. So something must be happening.

    Of course the club has said nothing, but that doesn't mean that nothing is happening, unless it is made explicitly clear that saying nothing means nothing is happening - otherwise it could be just a case of saying nothing when something is happening.

    What they need to do is issue a statement such as: "We are not saying nothing because something is happening, but because nothing is happening and therefore there's nothing to say - although, of course, in saying this, we are actually saying something, but we're not saying something is happening apart from us saying that nothing is happening."

    If nothing was on the cards at all then the club would say so rather than needlessly keeping fans guessing and on edge. So something must be happening.

    Of course the club has said nothing, but that doesn't mean that nothing is happening, unless it is made explicitly clear that saying nothing means nothing is happening - otherwise it could be just a case of saying nothing when something is happening.

    What they need to do is issue a statement such as: "We are not saying nothing because something is happening, but because nothing is happening and therefore there's nothing to say - although, of course, in saying this, we are actually saying something, but we're not saying something is happening apart from us saying that nothing is happening."

    yes confucious,you're right about saying nothing about anything, about a signing.all the signs are there about signing a signing as the club is saying nothing.If there is a sign of a signing,then I'm sure the club would say nothing about signing a signing but would sign someone anyway,and then send us a sign about signing signing.

    all the signs are there.

    Now that is a club in a mess getting messier!
    I hope all the idiots who kept shouting for Arry are watching how much money he has spent. Not a lot wrong with the players that were already there. A good manager would make a team out of that lot, not tell them they were cr4p and lazy and overpaid.
    MP has come in to our club and invigorated the team.
    I look forward to the Wigan game.
    A game we could win, that will be the test. Not games where anything is a bonus, a real chance of points against a team more desperate than us for points.

    It'd be a huge boost if we could get Andres Iniesta's right leg on loan and put it on Puncheon. OK, maybe not in this window, but I'm convinced the dramatic advances in surgery will see clubs reducing costs in future by just buying the best bits of players and assembling all the good parts.

    Messi's legs would be superb on Jay Rodriguez from a football point of view, even though they would look a bit small and stubby on his very long body.

    I'm not a racist and I'm all for integration, but from an aesthetic point of view I'm not at all sure if a single black leg should be put on a white body or a single white leg on a black one - though two legs of any one colour would probably be okay.

    Wonder if we are in danger of complacency. Everyone around us has been buying several players to save their premiership butts. Whilst we think we are good enough, not so sure on that one.
    Remember NA said before the start of the season, what we buy will be bought now, we won't do any business in Feb. Well we did buy one I guess.

    Maybe MP wanted to see how Fox shaped up and he got a run out to see if he was keeping him or letting him go. Which may have made a difference to whether we got someone in or not.

    We have played 8 of the top 10 teams away now.
    The second half performance yesterday gives us hope. depends how soon the opposition learns how to counteract it.

    At least you're not bitter.

    I love the way it's clearly down to NC's inability to sign rather than perhaps a positive decision that the squad's good enough.

    When Alex Ferguson is spouting about Saints for a half yesterday being the best team to have visited Old Trafford this year, do you think there is even the slightest possibility that we might have a decent squad? Might be worth working with them, training, improving the teamwork rather than just spending cash in the manner of old Saggy Chops. Just wondering. Perhaps you do know more than the professionals who run our club or even Fergie but I do rather doubt it.

    Mayuka - Was he really signed for FOOTBALLING reasons or commercial ones. I'd rather we'd put the money into a midfield anchor man or defence.

    To avoid this disappointment every year the club should in my view issue a statement stating whether they do or don't plan to strengthen.

    some people are never happy, if we had brought in 5-10 players in the window some would say thats too many and a bit unsettling to the squad. as it is we have brought in a centre back, a position most said we needed, and he is a player who comes very highly regarded and this is not enough for others.
    if we do more business then so be it, however i think we have enough to stay up and that is all we need to do this season. i do worry that if srl gets injured we might struggle but then thats what jrod was brought for and we still have tad lee and mayuka. i dont think mp was brought in to get players in during this window.

    So much for Cortese's ambition:
    he appoints a manager who has achieved nothing to date in his coaching carreer; he brings in only one player in the window when we needed a further goalkeeper, centre-back, midfielder and striker. Is Potchettino the new Jan Poortvliet?
    That is something we can only judge at season's end....in the meantime...COYR and bring on the 3pts at Wigan!

    Who was it that said there were no shocks for Saints this transfer window?

    Can't believe Lee Barnard is still on our books.

    To be fair to the idiots saying NC should have spent big, when have we ever spent close to £30M in one season? Incredible investment.

    He's got Lee and Mayuka who haven't even got a game yet and anyone coming in (bar strengthening cover in defence maybe) would be taking the place of a Gazza, Shaw, J-Rod, Lallana, Puncheon, Clyne, Ward Prowse, Cork...

    Well done NC for showing your confidence in the team and the coach.

    Bar a bad injury crisis any club could go through, I think we have good quality throughout.

    pardon me but in the 'window' he has late loaned out three players ( to offload wages ) and got in.... NO ONE. it appears he is not as ambitious as Harry. (some may say)

    Talking ambitiously is one thing - walking that talk is another. Like it or not, football is governed by cash.
    Saints will have to spend a lot more and improve this squad if they are to achieve Cortese's ambitions. Gambling on a positive but unproven manager and hoping that that will achieve top six football is just that - a gamble, just like when Lowelife appointed Poortvliet to put on the Ritz with our youth players!!

    I hope I'm proved wrong, but there's too much talk and not enough walk with Cortese - the lack of spending in this window proves that. Actions not words are what count.

    I think you r rite. Harry is doing what he knows best. Spending money. They still need to win around 6 from 14 and get a few draws as well. We need 4 wins and 3 draws and we should be ok. 5 wins 2 draws even better. All our rivals need to settle new players in. We don't. Still could be a close thing but we have all seen that we are better than our current position. Hope Clyne and Shaw avoid any injuries on U21 duty.

    Who was it above that said "Cortese lacks ambition" ? ........ nearly dropped my beer when I read that .......... I doubt that there's a more ambitious chairman in the whole football league !
    Talking ambitiously is one thing - walking that talk is another. Like it or not, football is governed by cash.
    Saints will have to spend a lot more and improve this squad if they are to achieve Cortese's ambitions. Gambling on a positive but unproven manager and hoping that that will achieve top six football is just that - a gamble, just like when Lowelife appointed Poortvliet to put on the Ritz with our youth players!!

    I hope I'm proved wrong, but there's too much talk and not enough walk with Cortese - the lack of spending in this window proves that. Actions not words are what count.
    Littleton...a minor skunt wum liked your comment earlier...I think that sums it up really.

    Football is governed by cash...yes...but we are trying to do it a different way. Employ from within...create our own talent...QPR's short term tactics will fail...just watch and see!
    Every bone in my body wants Rednapp to fail , nothing against QPhahaha but I loath that man !
    Jealous knobhead.

    Thick jealous knobhead

    My 12yr old has grown out of your type of humour TH... eg "I know a song that'll get on your nerves *repeat*" for example).

    Have you considered growing up a little...or do you just prefer to live in the past and let the present and future pass you by completely?

    In short...we know you're a skunt...but at least try to show a little class.

    Is something big happening at the Etihad? Our new head of PR had just retweeted something about a "very special Spanish guest"?

    three brain cells you cant just look in the mirror and post what you see, you should post constructive comments. hows the "i`ve never been to sms" boycot going btw? still not ever been? oh dear.

    bringing mp in is not the same as jan poortvliet, at that point we were in the championship, had no money and were on the verge of admin and unlike other teams we were using our youth team players instead of stealing from charities to pay for expensive players that we couldnt afford! whereas now we have some of the best young players in the prem, young english players like shaw and clyne and lalla and cork etc, we also have exciting internationals like £12mill gaston. yes we could have spent lots of money but that might not have worked either, villa have done next to nothing as have reading, wigan and norwich. newcastle have brought half of france and qpr have done their normal business.
    Your point is ?

    Stop posting rubbish.
