    Both would be a good buy for SAINTS - hooper and jay rod - let's get them in ASAP.

    Don't worry about Kelvin - a good quality keeper and there is a lot of choice out there - should improve our Team and they can fight for the number 1 Slot.

    Don't forget about strengthening our Defence - no disrespect to Danny Butterfield (and I know he is one of Nigel's favourites) but against some-one like Nani - no chance - he is just not good enough.

    Getting another CB is important. Nigel might gamble or argue that Jose will do a job for Saints. If it was based on the Coventry Game - I would agree - but over the Season he has struggled and on more than one occasion grappled the man instead of going for the ball.

    When I saw Chappers score against manure in the FA Cup - I was impressed... but of late I have been disappointed with his Strike Rate considering the number of chances he has had.

    If Rickie had laid off those chances to Steeeeeeeeeve in a more central role then i think Saints would have had more success.




    p.s Do the humane thing - Start the Liquidizer + Mash up the Blue Few. Wessex League and sharing with Havant is the right thing to do. No-one wants pompey in League One with all their debts and money laundering and not owning their ground car park players etc.....

    Sink the Skunts ...

    i would put a bid in for Dave Blake.He would link well with Fonte.We should be able to pick him up on a free.

Southampton 'make £6m-plus offer' for Jay Rodriguez claim reports

First published in Saints News

Saints have reportedly offered in excess of £6m for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.

Nigel Adkins failed in his pursuit to sign the highly-rated forward during last summer's transfer window, but it appears the club have now gone back in for the 22-year-old as they look to strengthen the squad for their Premier League return.

The Clarets are ideally hoping to receive £8m for the player, who has one year left to run on his contract, but were said to be mulling over the offer from Saints, according to reports from Lancashire.

However, this afternoon Burnley's head of media, Darren Bentley, claimed the club had received no bids for the young striker, who is also said to be attracting the attention of Sam Allardyce at West Ham.
