Play Saints fantasy transfers for your chance to win the cost of St Mary's season ticket paid

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino

First published in Saints News
Last updated

It's your chance to spend it like Poch - and win the cost of a season ticket to St. Mary's Stadium.

Starting on Monday, only in the Daily Echo, we're giving fans the chance to imagine how they would spend Nicola Cortese's rumoured £100m war chest.

Who would you pick to strengthen the Saints's squad if you were manager Mauricio Pochettino?

It's all a bit of fun, but if you choose the same players as our expert panel then you could win £520 in cash, the cost of this year's season ticket.

How to play and entry rules are in the Daily Echo from Monday.

Spend it like Poch.. And be watching Saints at St.Mary's next season for free.

where did that figure get plucked from 100m?
Seems unlikely but then who knows

Bit of detective work Anicio Bernard looks likely to head to the premiership after meeting the president of an English club Atletico Mineiro's president refused to say who the club was.
Attacking midfield, 25 goals in three seasons, 21 years of age. Brazilian.
Spartac Moscow had 9.8 mil turned down for him earlier.

Wow. Nicola must have given Poch a chu from at least the Qin or Han dynasties. I can't think of any other war chest that could possibly be worth £100m.

I assume 2 of them are Lawrie McMenemy and Terry Paine seeing as they write columns for the DE, possibly Gordon Watson, but who are the others...

might be because a lot of saints fans who might enter already have season tickets and wouldn't enter because of that. it then becomes a better option to say `we will pay for your season ticket`. you then have a choice of buying a season ticket yourself or peeing it up a wall. of course you could always give it to the starving children n Africa!

I am quite certain that most professional African footballers have foundations and donate time and personal wealth to improve conditions, as do many English pros - Billy Sharp and Richard Chaplow for example. Also check out the Saints Foundation website for the fundraising supporters do and the programs they support. Arrogant, self-absorbed chimps.....

How much longer are there going to be starving children in Africa?
This has been ongoing for as long as I can remember from when I was a schoolboy, 40 years ago.
I would have thought that just about enough money had been collected and sent there to sort it out quite a few times over.
I think somebody should investigate exactly where all this money goes, and then send some back so we can buy a centre back.

Last Saturday night I was in the city centre and there were an awful lot of young girls who could definitely do with a clothing subsidy.
Their skirts were almost certainly the same ones from when they were 4 or 5 years old and didn't cover the small scraps of material worn to cover their lower regions and as for the blouses?/ netting!

I think you'll find the Saints trust does a fair bit for starving children in Africa. Underinvesting in players and making us a Championship club isn't going to help us do more.

Your concern is laudable but I think your solutions to third world poverty are a tad simplistic.
