Saints make £8m swoop for defender

Daily Echo: Dejan Lovren Dejan Lovren

Saints last night made their first signing of the summer, completing the £8.5m capture of Lyon's highly-rated centre half Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian international, 23, has signed a four-year contract at St Mary’s after moving from the French club.

Lovren, who was linked with a move to the club earlier this week, bolsters the heart of the Saints defence – an area that had been identified as a key priority for improvement this off-season.

Lovren, who said he hopes to stay at Saints for a “long time”, told the club’s official website: “I’ve spoken a lot with the chairman and the coach, and this is a great project.

“They told me a lot of positive things, and I know the history of the club. It’s a big club and I’m very happy that I can be a part of it.

“After three-and-a-half years in France, it was a dream to play in the Premier League. Now the dream has come true.

"I have it in my mind to do something big, and I see the same thing in the club.”

Lovren joins Maya Yoshida, Jose Fonte and Jos Hooiveld, as well as Vegard Forren, in the first-team centre half ranks.

As previously reported, that was a position that Saints were determined to strengthen this summer.

The club have an ambitious recruitment drive planned, and are also understood to be targeting a new central midfielder, striker, wide player and right-back.

They have also scouted keepers and left-backs, but those positions are not such priorities, although the market will no doubt be monitored in case an attractive opportunity presents itself.

Speaking about the addition of Lovren, Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino said on the club’s website: “We are very happy because Dejan is a very good player with good potential.”

Lovren joined Lyon in 2010 from Dinamo Zagreb, in an €8m deal, spending three-and-a-half good years with the French side. He has been capped by his country 17 times.

Cpt. Kirk's illegitimate love child says...

Brilliant! One down, three to go. Like I said yesterday; Banega, Bueno, Astori and Lovren. Champions League here we come! Seriously, Banega is the Dogs Bullocks of a midfield general at the right age (24) and he would be a fantastic buy if we can get him. Astori would be an old head in the team but not sure we need him now we have Lovren. Bueno would be one for the future but he would scare the pants off defenders as an impact sub and he would keep Gaston company. None of these may sign, but its good they are linked. Great times ahead

This lad looks the business. The fact that we can sign a player from a club which routinely plays Champions League football demonstrates the scale of our ambition. Two or three more additions and we'll have a very decent squad. A top 7/8 finish would represent real progress

Benega and a top quality predatory striker who can score 15 goals plus will almost certainly put us in the top ten..

Should Forren actually be a major improvement on all our existing defenders or at least as good as Fonte was for much of the season then with Lovren we will defensively be there or there abouts..

Once again though our end of season was marked by enough chances to win and a poor conversion rate....

..our build up play is there..finisshing and more incisevness from midfield would see top 7 actually I can see Lallana being sacrificed to achieve this as in spite of his skill he takes a touch to many and at present is a bit lightweight, indeed he is guilty of as many misses(well almost) as Guly...hope it comes good for him, however ?

There's some speculation that the line up at the back will be Clyne, Forren, Lovren and Shaw. I'm guessing Jos could be the one to go with Yoshida and Fonte providing the back up.

I think Tosh has done enough to remain in the starting line up, but I agree with you about Jos. Shame, because he gives 100%, and was a big player for us in the championship season, but he is exposed for pace at perm level. He's a top bloke though and would love to see him prove me wrong..

Spot on mate. Same thoughts on Lallana, gets into the right spaces but don't see the simple effective pass quick enough. Hope Poochy can teach him to pass instead of trying to bat to many. Reminds me of Fernandaze.

I would think that a lot of last season's squad will be paying more attention than us to the rumours of signings.
There will be players leaving and not all of them will want to.
The competition for places was hot last season, next it will be even hotter.
Lovren has 3 sending off's against him and suggests he gets stuck in.
That would mean that his centre back partner would be allowed to play a little more and not have to concern himself with too many tackles.
This combination has worked before and whoever gets chosen as his preferred partner will have to learn to compliment him.
Who qualifies best for that role?
Forren, we know nothing about.
Hoover, left footed.
Maya, two footed.
Jose, right footed.
My vote goes to Yoshida every time as he is getting better with every game.
There is also the young Stephens(spelling?)
My preference for signings has always been Bony for a striker and Zorro for the fast winger.
But what do I know?
Supporting the Saints is getting easier with the quality of signings.

What people have to understand, is that Dejan Lovren is actually the French spelling NOT the Croatian, AND we have to remember that the French pronunciation is different from the English. So, to pronounce his name correctly, you have to pronounce it like this:

Clyne, Lovren, Yoshida, Shaw will probably be the back four. (At least, I hope so because Yoshida is my ticket to a televised Saints match every week!)

DBTM, I'm just doing the same. My French isn't good enough to understand many of the 'odd' comments - I think some where written by Confucious's French cousin - but, yes, the concensus seems to be:
1. We paid way more than he's worth (but then so did OL when they bought him).
2. He had a great year (2011-12) and was genuinely being looked at by Barca, but struggled last year (3 sendings off and some poor games) but also had some decent ones. I guess that's where the 'joke' thread encouraging Barca to sign him came from.
3. If 'an average' English Prem club can poach a player from a 'top' French club, there's no hope for French football. Well, that sums up the ignorance prevelent in the thread.

So, let's wait and see.

One piece of ignorance came from a PSG fan, who seemed to be saying that Lovren had been bought by some unknown rubbish English club - ergo OL must be really cr4p. Here is what was an excellent response, which I thought was worth translating:

'It really shows that you know nothing. Southampton produced Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain. In addition, they have good players like Ramirez, Clyne and Schneiderlin that are just as good as the best players in French League 1.'

Jury's out, methinks.

Enough said me thinks .................[/p][/quote]DBTM, I'm just doing the same. My French isn't good enough to understand many of the 'odd' comments - I think some where written by Confucious's French cousin - but, yes, the concensus seems to be: 1. We paid way more than he's worth (but then so did OL when they bought him). 2. He had a great year (2011-12) and was genuinely being looked at by Barca, but struggled last year (3 sendings off and some poor games) but also had some decent ones. I guess that's where the 'joke' thread encouraging Barca to sign him came from. 3. If 'an average' English Prem club can poach a player from a 'top' French club, there's no hope for French football. Well, that sums up the ignorance prevelent in the thread. So, let's wait and see. One piece of ignorance came from a PSG fan, who seemed to be saying that Lovren had been bought by some unknown rubbish English club - ergo OL must be really cr4p. Here is what was an excellent response, which I thought was worth translating: 'It really shows that you know nothing. Southampton produced Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain. In addition, they have good players like Ramirez, Clyne and Schneiderlin that are just as good as the best players in French League 1.' Jury's out, methinks. Strasbourg Saint

You know he wasn't because it was in the media, probably his agent trying his best to get him out of hell. As for how did he do, I have no idea as I only like to watch competative football.

Well if Foxy goes we will need someone to heap the vitriol upon, he will do. Have been Googling, and there are some very mixed opinions out there, Liverpool and Spurs tried and failed to get him. He is still young and some of his past exploits seem to have been a bit imature. He will have to grow up fast but I have no doubt we will whip him in to shape, if he is good enough he will do the job, if not, he will soon be history.

You watched us? We are honoured, not sure it was downgrading, you have been watching a one trick pony League for so long I suspect your mind has been permanently damaged. As for the two games you mentioned, we did our best to keep these two up but neither were good enough to take advantage of the kind opportunity offered to them, not our fault that they were relegated.

This is what happens when you support a dinky wee team that's never even been in the competition. Just don't understand the rules. Probably an English education at fault.

By the way, pop along to Brentford pre season. Just down the road. See how a crowd of "1300" somehow manages to fill a ground for a FRIENDLY.

Nice straw clutching but there are far too many funny ancient Saints moments to mention just the one. Ali Da is tempting though.

PS - Do try to get your facts right. This was a very funny NEWSPAPER headline, not a chant.

I have family who live in South of France and follow Marseille. They're opinion is that he is quick,tenacious, likes a tackle and can pass the ball pretty well. Sounds like a descent but to me?

Good news!

I have a student from Lyon but I don't think he's a fan. On Monday, I'll check what he knows/thinks.

I'll also see what my French mates who bother to follow French football think. Not many here watch it regularly. I mean, seriously, it's almost as bad as watching the SPL.

You know he wasn't because it was in the media, probably his agent trying his best to get him out of hell. As for how did he do, I have no idea as I only like to watch competative football.
So you don't watch the Champions League then ?

But then again, why should you !
Neither do you beyond the first round, I must admit to watching Dover in the BSB Southern league, thats about your level pal, and with crowds of up to 1300 too
So winning SEVEN of your games and reaching the last 16 doesn't get you past the first round ?

This is what happens when you support a dinky wee team that's never even been in the competition. Just don't understand the rules. Probably an English education at fault.

By the way, pop along to Brentford pre season. Just down the road. See how a crowd of "1300" somehow manages to fill a ground for a FRIENDLY.
Not English education, more likely due to my father being a sweaty, and just like you he was vile and bitter, thank god you lot are dying quicker than breeding there is hope for the future

Why are you more interested in an attention-seeking loser than discussing The Saints?
How is my 12:02 post not discussing the Saints? No harm in teasing MacJockstrap, he is obviously lonely, to be wasting his time on here, it would be a bit rude to ignor him. I was Googling Celtic Transfer Rumours, according to them GH is going to all sorts of other Clubs, why would he, he isn't doing badly at Celtic. I like him as a Player but he obviously doesn't fancy coming to us for whatever reason, that his choice, I don't think he would fit in now anyhow, but football is very nebulus and anything could happen. At least we have made a start with Dejan, whether he will be a shoe in starter or another to be fitted in when good and ready isn't clear yet.

You're one of the good guys, Osprey; so are Tom and Folkestone, but you all lack self control with the WUMs.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.

Dejan says that he's spoken a lot to the Chairman --- just like Nigel used to do!
Hopefully Dejan will be given a chance to play, unlike MP's other defensive signing, who wasn't even given a run out against Stoke, in the last game of the season.
We need to spend money on a PL class goalkeeper.
What's the point of the defence preventing shooting opportunities if the few they don't prevent, result in goals, given away by either an over the hill, novice or a carpet bagger, who has seen better days, goalkeeper.
Take your pick, none of the three are up to PL standard and if Saints don't sign a quality goalkeeper we will struggle at the bottom of the league just as we did last season, avoiding relegation by the skin of our teeth.

Thanks SS appreciate it, you are a decent poster on here too. No one takes me too seriously I hope, I do slip in the occasional bit of common sense, but I enjoy a bit of nonsense too. It is difficult to speculate on who we will sign, I know we have some good Scouts out there doing their level best to find some decent, talented footballers but actually getting them to join the Crusade is something else.

What's the point of the defence preventing shooting opportunities if the few they don't prevent, result in goals, given away by either an over the hill, novice or a carpet bagger, who has seen better days, goalkeeper.
Take your pick, none of the three are up to PL standard and if Saints don't sign a quality goalkeeper we will struggle at the bottom of the league just as we did last season, avoiding relegation by the skin of our teeth.
get off skate idiot support your own club .you cant swap clubs just because your in league 2 with little chance of seeing the premier league .you just embarrass your fellow portsmouth fans pathetic person

At least this guy speaks very good English. Says he has done his homework on our Club and hopes he can stay for a long time. Good start anyway. I would imagine our lasses will be taking an interest?

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.

Saw him at the Dell against Manure and George Best was giving him absolutely torrid time. The ball went out off his shins for a corner, George picked the ball up and offered it to him, then dropped it and Big John was heard to tell him to meet in the bar after and see who could really drink!
Razor's biggest credit in football folklore was coming up behind Eric Cantona and carefully turning his collar down for him and then patting him on the head while at Liverpool.

Does any body else remember the battle between Peter Osgood and Larry Lloyd when Saints played Forest.
Ossie got booked for eventually knocking him to the ground and putting his foot on his chest and raising a fist in salute!

The truth of the matter is that Hagiology Publishing are on the layout / editing stage of their next publication, “All the Saints: A Complete Players’ Who’s Who of Southampton FC”, which is due for publication in time for Christmas. Had Forren been played, even during extra time as a substitute, a large part of the book would have had to have been re-formatted to accommodate him, thus delaying the print run and jeopardising the launch date.

I understand that Hagiology contacted the Club soon after Forren was signed pointing this out that and observed that any delay in getting the book in the Saints’ retail outlets in time for Christmas, had the potential to reduce profits by dozens of pounds. One supposes that this message has been passed up to Nicola Cortese and he has, in all likelihood, told Mauricio Pochettino that Forren is only to be played in the direst of circumstances.

Hope this clarifies the situation?

Do you remember Ossie and Steve Williams getting an early bath at Blackburn one time after their fullback (Baily, was it?) wound them both up? Baily moved on to Everton but was NEVER allowed to forget, getting booed on his every visit to The Dell.

Nothing will clarify the situation for TB, Dave.
He is transfixed on his anti-Cortese, don't like the goalkeepers crusade and will soon be telling you how stupid and "non-thinking" you are, how you don't measure up to his level of intelligence and how he is always right (even though he has a very poor batting average)

When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

I suppose, for the slightly younger reader, I ought to have written, 'Razor Ruddock', no?
Wonder who would come out on top between McGrath and Ruddock?

It would be like Froch v Kessler III

Both of those names will leave an awful lot of posters wondering who you are referring to.
Big John rolling his sleeves up as far as he could and oiling up.
Saw him at the Dell against Manure and George Best was giving him absolutely torrid time. The ball went out off his shins for a corner, George picked the ball up and offered it to him, then dropped it and Big John was heard to tell him to meet in the bar after and see who could really drink!
Razor's biggest credit in football folklore was coming up behind Eric Cantona and carefully turning his collar down for him and then patting him on the head while at Liverpool.

Does any body else remember the battle between Peter Osgood and Larry Lloyd when Saints played Forest.
Ossie got booked for eventually knocking him to the ground and putting his foot on his chest and raising a fist in salute!
Characters in short supply nowadays.
Ozgood was magical with his footwork.

Yeah, but the plus fours are out of this world. If you play a round at Stoneham, you'll see more dodgy tartan than at Celtic Park in a title-topping local derby against ..... um ..... Partick Thistle.

Talking of playing a round, I was once at Corhampton Golf Course when this rich bird came up and asked if I fancied playing a round. I thought my luck was in till she pulled a set of clubs out of her Porsche.

I think the club can save money by scrapping our scouts and just reading what Liverpool have to say..

Seems a good player based on the report with a few flaws though...

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
Golf's (imo) the most stupid game ever invented ........the balls are too small , the holes are too small and the bats are far too small ....... COYR !!
Hey Slug's you are forgetting that there is a 19th hole, and when my son learns to drive (on the road he can already out drive me on the course) I can use it
I'm off to Le-Mans tomorrow night , the French have bars in their supermarkets (like most of Europe) , makes shopping a pleasure ....... We English are so backwards in some things !
Well gel. I hope to be there next year or 2015, I have promised my son I will buy a p6 v8 Rover (my first car) do it up and travel down with his mates dad who also has a classic, if not it will be a tent in the back of the Landy and a full cool box. Have a good time btw
I had a v8 p6 (auto) cracking motor !

p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.
id put jimmy case in front of those 3 hard as nails get booked every week now
Him and Mark Dennis were football enforcers but off the park? I could imagine Ruddock taking either of them in a ruck. Stuart Pearce was a tough charchter on the pitch but no way off it.

So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

Have a missed any MUST start thugs?
I wouldn't have messed with either Hughie Fisher or Ivan Golac in their day.

I appreciate Dave Juson's information which I believe was made in good faith, giving his reasons why Forren didn't play but I have some doubt over its veracity and to my mind, it defies logic.
According to Dave, if Forren, had played, even in the last game of the season, it would spoil the accuracy of a book on Saints, then currently in production, for Christmas release, resulting in financial loss.
I admit to not knowing the exact nature of the book but surely, more pertinent to its accuracy, would not be whether one player did or didn't play but whether Saints survived in the PL, a fact that wasn't known until May.
Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team?
It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper.
And before anyone tells me that Saint's survival was due to the wisdom of NC bringing in MP and MP's brilliance as a manager, let me remind them that Nigel won more points in his last 12 games for Saints than MP did in his last 12.
I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

STID
Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.
id put jimmy case in front of those 3 hard as nails get booked every week now
Him and Mark Dennis were football enforcers but off the park? I could imagine Ruddock taking either of them in a ruck. Stuart Pearce was a tough charchter on the pitch but no way off it.
So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

Have a missed any MUST start thugs?
Good shout with Franny up front. My brother went to Bellemoor with him when he was playing up front for England school boys.
prutton on the bench
i will never forget that "tackle" on pires (gooner)
... and Marsden, perhaps. One of them could get in ahead of Williams, perhaps.
You're forgetting mark Hughes, didn't score many but was used in midfield. I saw him take 2 out with 1 tackle.
Yes, Hughes could make the bench, but I still think Jimmy Case and Brian O'Neil were harder than any of the other midfielders mentioned so far.

Or he would get in ahead of Jordan, perhaps.

Did we ever have any really hard nut centre forwards? I wouldn't count Ron D. he was hard but fair, this lot didn't always go looking for the ball.

Btw, we've got Brasil vs. Japan on TV here. Yos is playing just as he does for Saints. Good positioning, good marking, winning most tackles and ........ dreadful passing out of defence.

I know it's Fred, Neymar and Hulk, but it's the one bit of his game he has to improve.

Oh, and it's 2-0 to Brasil.

My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.
id put jimmy case in front of those 3 hard as nails get booked every week now
Him and Mark Dennis were football enforcers but off the park? I could imagine Ruddock taking either of them in a ruck. Stuart Pearce was a tough charchter on the pitch but no way off it.
So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

Have a missed any MUST start thugs?
Good shout with Franny up front. My brother went to Bellemoor with him when he was playing up front for England school boys.
prutton on the bench
i will never forget that "tackle" on pires (gooner)
... and Marsden, perhaps. One of them could get in ahead of Williams, perhaps.
You're forgetting mark Hughes, didn't score many but was used in midfield. I saw him take 2 out with 1 tackle.
Cliff Huxford, Tommy Traynor, Docker Walker? The list goes on.

I appreciate Dave Juson's information which I believe was made in good faith, giving his reasons why Forren didn't play but I have some doubt over its veracity and to my mind, it defies logic.
According to Dave, if Forren, had played, even in the last game of the season, it would spoil the accuracy of a book on Saints, then currently in production, for Christmas release, resulting in financial loss.
I admit to not knowing the exact nature of the book but surely, more pertinent to its accuracy, would not be whether one player did or didn't play but whether Saints survived in the PL, a fact that wasn't known until May.
Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team?
It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper.
And before anyone tells me that Saint's survival was due to the wisdom of NC bringing in MP and MP's brilliance as a manager, let me remind them that Nigel won more points in his last 12 games for Saints than MP did in his last 12.
I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic.
Indeed facts are facts so please quote the evidence and source that says MP knew he had the job 6 weeks before being appointed as you have previously stated.

You repetitively say that Forren was MP's first signing even though all the evidence and facts lean otherwise. I have tried to point these facts out to you but, as it doesn't fit in with your illusion, you choose to ignore them. Ah well, try this one -

Southampton's former Norwegian defender Claus Lundekvam appears to have played a key role in Forren's switch of destination after recommending him to Adkins.
"I got a call from Southampton about a month before Christmas and I highly recommended him," he said.
"Southampton have been looking for a top-class defender for a long time, and Forren is a type that fits in with the way they play.”


All the evidence including the fact that MP was still under contract to Espanyol up until the end of November should, as a self confessed logical person, lead you to deduce contrary to your posts.

QUOTE: "I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic".

.. If you expect abuse, have you considered that you are doubting yourself, or maybe the abuse is desrved because you are actually wrong?

You won't get abuse if you change the record and tell us something new, that is actually based on facts, not just your warped opinion.

Absolutely no point in asking what NA might have done, hypothetical as he wasn't in a position to do anything once he had been removed.

The fact is, we survived, the facts are that MP using what NA and NC had created, was good enough to keep the momentum going, because he and the Squad were good enough to do it.

As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again).

Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?

As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again).

Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?

Not his finest moment, I agree, but overall Yoshida played pretty well.

As for a tough forward, how about George Kirby?
Kirby! Yes, another from before my time; another who was as hard as nails.

Yes,I thought Yos did well, given the opposition. I hope all the matches are televised here. I think the Uruguay one is, so I'll check out the winger.

Maybe get Solent Interiors to sign it as well.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

STID
Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.
id put jimmy case in front of those 3 hard as nails get booked every week now
Him and Mark Dennis were football enforcers but off the park? I could imagine Ruddock taking either of them in a ruck. Stuart Pearce was a tough charchter on the pitch but no way off it.
So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

Have a missed any MUST start thugs?
Good shout with Franny up front. My brother went to Bellemoor with him when he was playing up front for England school boys.
prutton on the bench
i will never forget that "tackle" on pires (gooner)
... and Marsden, perhaps. One of them could get in ahead of Williams, perhaps.
You're forgetting mark Hughes, didn't score many but was used in midfield. I saw him take 2 out with 1 tackle.
Cliff Huxford, Tommy Traynor, Docker Walker? The list goes on.
I'd say that Cliff Huxford was the hardest man I ever saw in a Saints' shirt.There was only one harder player during that era, Dave MacKay of Spurs and, later, Derby County.
.
That said, back in the 1960s, when I was extolling Huxford's firm but gentlemanly virtues to old-Dellites, they responded that he was a **** cat compared to Eric Day and, especially, Bill Rochford.
.
Mind you, it wasGeorge Kirby that parents of my generation frighened their children to sleep with.

Hard case forward has to be Ossie
I remember an interview with him where he was describing the dressing room before a game.
He was sitting on the radiator with Mick Channon going through the sporting life picking out nags for the afternoon bet.
Lawrie had said something that was important to the tactics of the game and asked Ossie what he had to do .
His response?
Make sure the centre half was unable to chase him or anyone else after about 5 minutes and if anyone went near Bobby, it was his responsibilty to deal with it.
Not exactly what he had to do but near enough!
Terry Paine once launched Mike Summersby over the wall near the changing room tunnel and then hid behind the linesman p!ssing himself with laughter. Not even a telling off!

Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team?
It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper.
And before anyone tells me that Saint's survival was due to the wisdom of NC bringing in MP and MP's brilliance as a manager, let me remind them that Nigel won more points in his last 12 games for Saints than MP did in his last 12.

QUOTE: "I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic".

.. If you expect abuse, have you considered that you are doubting yourself, or maybe the abuse is desrved because you are actually wrong?

You won't get abuse if you change the record and tell us something new, that is actually based on facts, not just your warped opinion.

Absolutely no point in asking what NA might have done, hypothetical as he wasn't in a position to do anything once he had been removed.

The fact is, we survived, the facts are that MP using what NA and NC had created, was good enough to keep the momentum going, because he and the Squad were good enough to do it.

As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again).

Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?
OSPREY love how you quote him at the beginning of your post, real Rumpole stuff. Any chance of you wheeling out some of your other logins today?
There is no chance of any sign-in duplication from me so stop getting in a state over it, thanks for asking, lesson learnt, never again, too embarassing. As long as OS doesn't get compromised again by some techy nerd, the other two will remain dormant.

Put Tebourba down for a copy too, he might learn something.

Maybe get Solent Interiors to sign it as well.
Better just to put The Borer down, if he was a horse he would have been put down ages ago.

Indeed facts are facts so please quote the evidence and source that says MP knew he had the job 6 weeks before being appointed as you have previously stated.

You repetitively say that Forren was MP's first signing even though all the evidence and facts lean otherwise. I have tried to point these facts out to you but, as it doesn't fit in with your illusion, you choose to ignore them. Ah well, try this one -

Southampton's former Norwegian defender Claus Lundekvam appears to have played a key role in Forren's switch of destination after recommending him to Adkins.
"I got a call from Southampton about a month before Christmas and I highly recommended him," he said.
"Southampton have been looking for a top-class defender for a long time, and Forren is a type that fits in with the way they play.”


All the evidence including the fact that MP was still under contract to Espanyol up until the end of November should, as a self confessed logical person, lead you to deduce contrary to your posts.

On top of all of that st1halo

He's a massive caaaant ! is he not.
Teboring continually reminds us. Adkins won more points than MP in their last 12 games. What he fails to understand a new manager has his own system of play and the players at his disposal have to adopt to that system. It's called "transition". In MP's case he's adopted a "pressing game".
Treboring is full of morals but has no idea about football.

Good riddens to Hooper, there's no evidence that he's good enough for the Prem and certainly wouldn't set the Prem on fire.

I'd love us to sign someone for peanuts whom I've never heard of and whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell but turns out to be better than RVP. It's unlikely, but let's dream BIG.
I know Strassie and am sorry, but I have tennis elbow and have just had a jab, so I cant play golf (some say I can't anyway) I can't work and I can't even drive right now, so have to admit to being bored especially now the cricket has been rained off too. I do think I am correct about the tennants though. :)
:0) Yes, the tennents is a given.

As for golf, I don't play these days. However, despite what others used to think, I was once a fantastic player. My mates were useless g!ts and used to hit too long and too straight. My shots were much more 'interesting' and I regularly outscored my mates (usually by about 140 to 75). When I played, unlike those dumb women's foursomes who overtook us and were finished much earlier, we regularly got an extra hour's play. I've no idea why I always had to buy the drinks.
p.s. Loved the John Mcgrath quote, most footy fans admired and respected him, hope this guy is as good
The game has evolved so much that I doubt if we will see their like again so JMcG and Razor will remain the best no-nonsense boys we ever had.

Have seen quite a lot of footage on Lovren now, can't judge anything til he plays obviously but he does seem very assured on the ball, nothing complicated or fancy, takes the simple passes and doesn't panic. I look forward to seeing him play.

Hardest Saints player ever was Ulrich Van Gobbel. The geezer was a tank. Ruddock comes in second and Hurlock would be third.
id put jimmy case in front of those 3 hard as nails get booked every week now
Him and Mark Dennis were football enforcers but off the park? I could imagine Ruddock taking either of them in a ruck. Stuart Pearce was a tough charchter on the pitch but no way off it.
So, a hard nut Saints 11 might look like this:

Boruc - well, he's the only Saints keeper to do what he (allegedly) did.

Hollywood, Razor, McGrath, Van Gobbel

Mark Dennis (playing left wing, so as to make room for Dennis Hollywood, who simply HAS to be in.), Case, Williams, Brian O'Niel (did he ever wear shinpads?)

Joe Jordan with Benali up front. (Franny started life as a forward and his Saints strike rate of scoring in every game against Leicester at The Dell in which he had a shot on target (or was it a header?) gets him the nod.

Have a missed any MUST start thugs?
Good shout with Franny up front. My brother went to Bellemoor with him when he was playing up front for England school boys.
prutton on the bench
i will never forget that "tackle" on pires (gooner)
... and Marsden, perhaps. One of them could get in ahead of Williams, perhaps.
You're forgetting mark Hughes, didn't score many but was used in midfield. I saw him take 2 out with 1 tackle.
Cliff Huxford, Tommy Traynor, Docker Walker? The list goes on.
I'd say that Cliff Huxford was the hardest man I ever saw in a Saints' shirt.There was only one harder player during that era, Dave MacKay of Spurs and, later, Derby County.
.
That said, back in the 1960s, when I was extolling Huxford's firm but gentlemanly virtues to old-Dellites, they responded that he was a **** cat compared to Eric Day and, especially, Bill Rochford.
.
Mind you, it wasGeorge Kirby that parents of my generation frighened their children to sleep with.
Not my asterisks! That has to be a particularly prudish asutomatic censoring programme.
Yes, the DE doesn't like the word pu$$y.

We'd have a real problem if Ferenc Pussykás had ever played for us.

Personally, I think it should stop pu$5ying about, ban the tw4ts who spoil these threads and stop censoring pu55y-footing, pu$5ying and pu5$y gallore.

I admit to not knowing the exact nature of the book but surely, more pertinent to its accuracy, would not be whether one player did or didn't play but whether Saints survived in the PL, a fact that wasn't known until May.
Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team?
It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper.

Indeed facts are facts so please quote the evidence and source that says MP knew he had the job 6 weeks before being appointed as you have previously stated.

You repetitively say that Forren was MP's first signing even though all the evidence and facts lean otherwise. I have tried to point these facts out to you but, as it doesn't fit in with your illusion, you choose to ignore them. Ah well, try this one -

Southampton's former Norwegian defender Claus Lundekvam appears to have played a key role in Forren's switch of destination after recommending him to Adkins.
"I got a call from Southampton about a month before Christmas and I highly recommended him," he said.
"Southampton have been looking for a top-class defender for a long time, and Forren is a type that fits in with the way they play.”


All the evidence including the fact that MP was still under contract to Espanyol up until the end of November should, as a self confessed logical person, lead you to deduce contrary to your posts.


STID
On top of all of that st1halo

He's a massive caaaant ! is he not.
Teboring continually reminds us. Adkins won more points than MP in their last 12 games. What he fails to understand a new manager has his own system of play and the players at his disposal have to adopt to that system. It's called "transition". In MP's case he's adopted a "pressing game".
Treboring is full of morals but has no idea about football.
Angus is right then.

QUOTE: "I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic".

.. If you expect abuse, have you considered that you are doubting yourself, or maybe the abuse is desrved because you are actually wrong?

You won't get abuse if you change the record and tell us something new, that is actually based on facts, not just your warped opinion.

Absolutely no point in asking what NA might have done, hypothetical as he wasn't in a position to do anything once he had been removed.

The fact is, we survived, the facts are that MP using what NA and NC had created, was good enough to keep the momentum going, because he and the Squad were good enough to do it.

As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again).

Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?
OSPREY love how you quote him at the beginning of your post, real Rumpole stuff. Any chance of you wheeling out some of your other logins today?

A cut and paste job, just like the Echo does, so no apologies.

"But, for those have not followed his career with Dinamo Zagreb, Lyon and the Croatia national team, how would Dejan describe himself?
"I am aggressive, but a positive aggressive," he says. "I'm not a player who will tackle somebody to break their leg!
"I want to play, and I've spoken a lot about that with the coach. I know that the team likes to play, and I think I am right for this team."

With all the chat about previous hardmen, perhaps a little deflating to know that legbreaking is an art that has almost certainly died out!

According to Dave, if Forren, had played, even in the last game of the season, it would spoil the accuracy of a book on Saints, then currently in production, for Christmas release, resulting in financial loss.
I admit to not knowing the exact nature of the book but surely, more pertinent to its accuracy, would not be whether one player did or didn't play but whether Saints survived in the PL, a fact that wasn't known until May.
Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team?
It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper.
And before anyone tells me that Saint's survival was due to the wisdom of NC bringing in MP and MP's brilliance as a manager, let me remind them that Nigel won more points in his last 12 games for Saints than MP did in his last 12.

.. If you expect abuse, have you considered that you are doubting yourself, or maybe the abuse is desrved because you are actually wrong?

You won't get abuse if you change the record and tell us something new, that is actually based on facts, not just your warped opinion.

Absolutely no point in asking what NA might have done, hypothetical as he wasn't in a position to do anything once he had been removed.

The fact is, we survived, the facts are that MP using what NA and NC had created, was good enough to keep the momentum going, because he and the Squad were good enough to do it.

As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again).

Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?
OSPREY love how you quote him at the beginning of your post, real Rumpole stuff. Any chance of you wheeling out some of your other logins today?
There is no chance of any sign-in duplication from me so stop getting in a state over it, thanks for asking, lesson learnt, never again, too embarassing. As long as OS doesn't get compromised again by some techy nerd, the other two will remain dormant.

Please don't encourage him/her/it, it makes him worse.
That's a bit rich !
Lol.
At least I am boring on a variety of topics not fixated on one.
You've gone and stumped me.

According to Dave, if Forren, had played, even in the last game of the season, it would spoil the accuracy of a book on Saints, then currently in production, for Christmas release, resulting in financial loss. I admit to not knowing the exact nature of the book but surely, more pertinent to its accuracy, would not be whether one player did or didn't play but whether Saints survived in the PL, a fact that wasn't known until May. Forren was MP's first signing, signed at a time when Saints were in danger of being relegated, and the team needed strengthening, so why spend £3.5m on a player who can't win a place in a struggling team? It doesn't bode well for the coming season, unless of course you're a happy clapper. And before anyone tells me that Saint's survival was due to the wisdom of NC bringing in MP and MP's brilliance as a manager, let me remind them that Nigel won more points in his last 12 games for Saints than MP did in his last 12. I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic.[/p][/quote]QUOTE: "I expect the normal round of abuse, but facts are facts and logic is logic". .. If you expect abuse, have you considered that you are doubting yourself, or maybe the abuse is desrved because you are actually wrong? You won't get abuse if you change the record and tell us something new, that is actually based on facts, not just your warped opinion. Absolutely no point in asking what NA might have done, hypothetical as he wasn't in a position to do anything once he had been removed. The fact is, we survived, the facts are that MP using what NA and NC had created, was good enough to keep the momentum going, because he and the Squad were good enough to do it. As for the Forren situation, you don't know the true situation, I don't know it either, speculate as much as you like, but there is a fair chance that you would be wrong yet again. If you post an opinion, fair enough, but don't express it as a fact, the evidence seems to point to Forren being signed under NA's regime not MP, but again we don't know for sure, and your famous logic would say that he wasn't fit enough to start, something that will be addressed in the close season, if he is deemed good enough, he will stay, if a failure for whatever reason, he will go, "as a gamble that failed", these things happen now and again). Although the book mentioned "All the Saints" is real, I think I may be wrong, being as gullible (is that the right spelling, I couldn't find it in the dictionary?) as you, that the Forren reference might just be a wind up?[/p][/quote]OSPREY love how you quote him at the beginning of your post, real Rumpole stuff. Any chance of you wheeling out some of your other logins today?[/p][/quote]There is no chance of any sign-in duplication from me so stop getting in a state over it, thanks for asking, lesson learnt, never again, too embarassing. As long as OS doesn't get compromised again by some techy nerd, the other two will remain dormant.[/p][/quote]I think you misunderstand me OSPREY.
