Rodriguez tipped for England future

Daily Echo: Jay Rodriguez Jay Rodriguez

SAINTS’ new signing Jay Rodriguez has the ability to become a fully-fledged England international, according to the striker’s mentor.

Ade Akinbiyi played with the 22-year-old hotshot at Burnley and now acts as an advisor for him.

He believes £7m Rodriguez, who has already been capped at under-21 level for his country, will eventually become a senior international.

“One hundred per cent,” declared Akinbiyi. “I’ve got every confidence he’s going to go to the top."

And joining the mighty Saints will be a stepping stone towards his first senior cap.
World Cup 2014 anyone ?

I'm looking for somewhere that will give me odds for him going to World Cup already! Lallana going as well even if it's just back up left winger

I think that the echo get's a bit carried away with its reporting.A player transferred to Southampton from a Championship side,for an alleged 7m,though some reports say less,is now tipped to play for England.He has not played one minute for Saints and nor he has he played in the Premier League.
If he is a future England player
I am sure any one of PL sides closer to Burnely would have picked him up by now and probably for a lot more money.
Let's wait and see.

Loving your positive outlook. How many times have you seen him play this season to be so dismissive?

Echo is not saying this, his advisor is. They are reporting on his advisor's comments.

Anyway, Sir Rickie Lambert will play for England before him...

Farawaysaint, I can't see it being a coincidence that we've beaten European placed teams to his signature and him being bad! I trusted Pardew when he was down here, he was interested in him. I heard Spurs were taking a look at him (nothing official just rumors in the air) which if that is true, going by past targets it would've only been a matter of time before Arsenal would b interested in him. U make a good point in saying not played in the Prem but every player that plays there was once a player that had never played there in 1 way or another, I can't see Everton fans saying Rooney was going to b **** cos he's 17 and never played for the 1st team before, nor can I imagine Spurs fans saying Berbatov was gonna be **** cos he had only played in the German leagues before joining them. (Don't know why I choose 2 Man Utd players now but they happened to be the 1st 2 players to pop into my head) I'm sure he will be a hit and people like yourself who seem to have even the remotest doubt will be eating their words come mid next season (I say that with the greatest of respect to u.) Either way we all sing from the same hymn sheet and will be cheering his name a fair few times next season

I have never heard of his "advisor" Akinbiyi (why not use the word "Agent") and I really don't give a fig for his opinion. I could probably get a more informed unbiased opinion from my cat. Shrewd beast my cat !!

I have only seen JR a couple of times, the rest was on telly. I can't really judge objectively but if NA and NC rate him thats good enough for me as it's their heads on the block not mine.

There is so much unconfirmed speculation about this deal which may all be a load of smoke and mirrors.

Fact - The fee is not known. Te club has not confirmed this. My cat is probably worth a lot more than £7 million but I can't confirm that.

Fact - Nobody knows which other clubs were after him. All comment so far is guesswork. No other club has approached me about my cat.

Fact - JR hasn't played in the premiership. Neither has my cat.

Fact - NA was keen to get him last year but failed probably because he thought he might go up with Burnley and thought we had no chance. Now he has joined us because we have been promoted. Shrewd move JR !
I think my cat would approve of that - like all cats he would go to the first person who fed him the most food.

Fact - I don't like Agents, Advisors, People who get paid in cash in brown paper packets or people who have dogs with bank accounts. My cat doesn't have a bank account.

Fact - JR must perform at the highest level now against the top players. If he succeeeds I will be delighted, if he gets an England place I will also be pleased. I doubt that my cat will get a call up though as he is getting too old.. but when he was at his peak he was clocking up two birds and four mice a week. What do you think of THAT Akinbiyi ?

Why hasn't anyone interviewed my cat?

After that, I'm off to Ladbrokes to get the odds on Lambert, Lallana, Rodriguez & your cat playing for England at the next World Cup.

It is rumoured (allegedly) that your cat is now worth £8m & will be a big hit in the Premier League.

He is allegedly rumoured to be a close season target for Spurs, Liverpool & Newcastle.

A source close to the cat reportedly said 'He is the biggest feline prospect in football. His close control & ball skills are excellent. He always lands on his feet, has great pace & a mean body swerve'.

I'm not sure we've signed him as an out-and-out striker.
I get the feeling he might be used on the right of either a front three, or as a winger as someone above mentioned, like we have Adam on the left.
I still think in home games, against teams around us in particular,in our starting team we'll use Sir Ricky playing in the hole off of Sharp(in the Le Tiss position), Adam and JR on the sides, and having Tad Lee as an option to replace Billy for last 25 mins.
With that list of players, we can change things around, give people a rest etc( Lambert have a game off, move JR to his position, slide Tad Lee as a winger etc..) Lot's of exciting possibilities.
Good that we've kept Chaplow-hope he can refind his form.
Just need some extra defenders, back up keeper and I'd say one more classy attacking midfielder to give us further variety in our play.

Changing the subject I have read that we are making a bid for Butland. I wonder if our manager and Chairman along with a medical team are going to fly out Poland and seal the deal. I would not put it passed them to do that. We have been linked with two or three Bosman players. However this means that we can not sign these players until a minute passed mid night on the 1st of July. We have been linked with both Danny Guthrie and Craig Gordon. I see Wet pam have put in a bid for Jarvis, 4 million quoted, I am sure we could match that. Wet Pam are 80 million in the red, so they will be buying cheap.

I can't believe your post. This player (from what I have seen) looks the real deal. There were quite a few Premier League clubs looking at him. Surely you must know something about this player as most supporters I know have a knowledge of how highly rated he is, even if they are supporters of PL teams, they have heard of Rodriguez and think this is a great signing.

Fact - The fee is not known. Te club has not confirmed this. My cat is probably worth a lot more than £7 million but I can't confirm that.

Fact - Nobody knows which other clubs were after him. All comment so far is guesswork. No other club has approached me about my cat.

Fact - JR hasn't played in the premiership. Neither has my cat.

Fact - NA was keen to get him last year but failed probably because he thought he might go up with Burnley and thought we had no chance. Now he has joined us because we have been promoted. Shrewd move JR !
I think my cat would approve of that - like all cats he would go to the first person who fed him the most food.

Fact - I don't like Agents, Advisors, People who get paid in cash in brown paper packets or people who have dogs with bank accounts. My cat doesn't have a bank account.

Fact - JR must perform at the highest level now against the top players. If he succeeeds I will be delighted, if he gets an England place I will also be pleased. I doubt that my cat will get a call up though as he is getting too old.. but when he was at his peak he was clocking up two birds and four mice a week. What do you think of THAT Akinbiyi ?

Why hasn't anyone interviewed my cat?
I love this....

Akinbiyi was (and I use the term very loosly) a striker, he played for Leicester (although Leicester fans may dispute that)!

He was a big money signing for Leicester when Peter Taylor was in charge, I think it is fair to say that it never really worked out!!

But, he is propbably well placed to give good advice to Roriguez as he knows how difficult playing at the top flight after a big money move can be.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing your cat next year. I am sure Harry Redknapp will be looking to sign him for his new club, now Totenham have found him out to be a pretend manager who learned his trade through Football Manager on the ZX Spectrum 48k...

How much for your cat?
I am reportedly asking £10 million based on the additional rat catching last year, which earned him a Christmas present from the neighbours.
They have reportedly said he has international potential and that other buyers are queuing up with bids.

As he has no bank account you will have to send me the cash. Used £10 notes please. packed into those nice brown bubble wrap envelopes, he likes playing with those.

I may start up a new account on this site "Alicescat" ... I think he's one to watch .. why isn't he on the Echo list of rumours?

If 7m is about right then Jay is one of the most expensive signings from the Championship. 7m is what Bale ended up costing Spurs.

I am not saying that because we paid that much we can expect bids from Barca to start coming in but on the other hand if he doesn’t prove to be a Premiership Regular then it will be a massive mistake by Cortese.

I don’t think Cortese has made any massive mistakes yet...so fingers crossed :)

Prices have inflated further from when we sold Bale for 7m, so I'm not sure it's fair to compare the two fees...
Also, Bale was17, with limited experience, whereas J-Rod has done his apprenticeship, and clearly ready for the move up.

After that, I'm off to Ladbrokes to get the odds on Lambert, Lallana, Rodriguez & your cat playing for England at the next World Cup.

It is rumoured (allegedly) that your cat is now worth £8m & will be a big hit in the Premier League.

He is allegedly rumoured to be a close season target for Spurs, Liverpool & Newcastle.

A source close to the cat reportedly said 'He is the biggest feline prospect in football. His close control & ball skills are excellent. He always lands on his feet, has great pace & a mean body swerve'.

Watch this space.
I've heard Catford town think he's the cats whiskers and have put in a bid for him. They think he will be purr fect to replace there centre forward.They apparently have a big kitty for the new season.As they have 9 lives they will be offering a 30 year contact.

I might write to NC and see if the club has ever had a "club cat". It's a marketing opportunity and a serious income generator !! "Alicescat" logos, badges, T shirts, key rings, signed pictures, public appearances, endorsements, sponsored fur, TV interviews, the list just grows and grows.

In full support of anti-racist promotions I must also point he's black. This also bodes well as he would bring an ocean of good luck.

I am of course merely his advisor, you can contact me via my solicitors Sue, Grabbit and Run.

everyone's missing the point about JR's reported £7m fee and not having pl experience. Last season a relatively unknown 17 year old with no prem league experience was bought from Saints for £12m. He will soon be a regular for Arsenal & is now at euro 2012 playing for England. His name Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. We have a lot of good players in our team that have no experience of the Prem league, and that is so gonna be to our advantage. can't wait for the season to start. COYR's

said it before..... will say it again now.....Poopey had premier league experienced players and got relegated from the premier league, then with those same premier league experienced players they got relegated from the championship !
Experience of winning is much more relevant, an abundance of real talent is also important. an agent who can big up his player is not really needed, we can watch any player on youtube and make our own mind up !
Jelavic had no premier league experience, he seems to have done quite well !
Most of the Norwich and Swansea players had no Premier league experience and they done quite well too !
A player is only worth what someone will pay for them, Wetspam paid £1.5m for Maynard who hardly got a game and is being touted around as a makeweight so they can buy another striker ! They already have CCole who has premier league experience, how many did he score in the championship ?
Is Alicecat a striker or a goalie?
We do need another goalie, or can he play in midfield as an enforcer?
Sky Sports now have us listed as a Premier League club....great innit ?

Just been reading The Birmingham News, rumours are that Saints are interested in Jack Butland and all their readers are getting hot under the collar and slating us as a bunch of no hopers destined to be relegated before a ball is even kicked.
Also the readers/commenters are as scathing about that paper as we are of the Echo.
Same as BHA fans of the Argus, Poopey of the News and silly name of whatever their local rag is called.
So from this I deduce that all local papers are against the local teams and all clubs have or are going to ban them from their grounds.

'Doing a Torres' - like it.

A few other similar expressions which don't need explaining could include:

Doing a 'arry (bless!)
Doing a Barton or (much the same) doing a Terry

Closer to home, and with a more positive spin, it would be great if next season Rickie could 'do a Ron Davies'.

Gomez looks a lively goal scorer again but what could he do against a Chelsea back 10, Come on England. This is our year against them on penalties.
Russia vs Poland looks as an intense outside the ground as a Saints vs Skunts game.
I had the Russian Dzagoev in my dream team from day 1 ..... did you?
I’m enjoying the Euros here in Oz, but sadly I feel it will be diluted by the expansion to 24 teams next time. Here’s a few of my random thoughts so far: Same old Oranje egos but with no Dutch Courage. Arsenal has beens Arshavin and Bendtner have looked dangerous but golden boy Van Pussie? – see above.

I have never heard of his "advisor" Akinbiyi (why not use the word "Agent") and I really don't give a fig for his opinion. I could probably get a more informed unbiased opinion from my cat. Shrewd beast my cat !!

I have only seen JR a couple of times, the rest was on telly. I can't really judge objectively but if NA and NC rate him thats good enough for me as it's their heads on the block not mine.

There is so much unconfirmed speculation about this deal which may all be a load of smoke and mirrors.

Fact - The fee is not known. Te club has not confirmed this. My cat is probably worth a lot more than £7 million but I can't confirm that.

Fact - Nobody knows which other clubs were after him. All comment so far is guesswork. No other club has approached me about my cat.

Fact - JR hasn't played in the premiership. Neither has my cat.

Fact - NA was keen to get him last year but failed probably because he thought he might go up with Burnley and thought we had no chance. Now he has joined us because we have been promoted. Shrewd move JR !
I think my cat would approve of that - like all cats he would go to the first person who fed him the most food.

Fact - I don't like Agents, Advisors, People who get paid in cash in brown paper packets or people who have dogs with bank accounts. My cat doesn't have a bank account.

Fact - JR must perform at the highest level now against the top players. If he succeeeds I will be delighted, if he gets an England place I will also be pleased. I doubt that my cat will get a call up though as he is getting too old.. but when he was at his peak he was clocking up two birds and four mice a week. What do you think of THAT Akinbiyi ?

Why hasn't anyone interviewed my cat?
Alicesdad. Somebody has interviewed your cat. See the news section. Your cat has jumped on a train and is in Merthyr Tydfil. Clearly all the publicity you have given him has made him run away from home.

The top two from each group would qualify in addition to the four best third-ranked sides, the same system as was applied in the World Cups from 1986 to 1994.

Panic over..the news story in the Echo was NOT about Alicescat. Looks like him though but the real Alicescat is a bit older than the one in the picture. Anyway, he's far too busy at the moment in discussions with NC about his new role at St Marys.

NA has asked to see him play down at the training ground today.. but like most cats he simply can't be ar$ed to turn up unless he feels like it. In any event they havent got a shirt that fits him yet. All in good time though.

In the absence of any new stories today, Alicescat remains the hottest story on the site at the moment. I see Harry Brownpaperbag quit Spurs as soon as he heard that Alicescat would make mincement of his dog. Shrewd move Harry but my cat is far more interesting and.. more importantly ... has no bank account.

It was dire, I remember it well. It was a truly boring system back then and it will be again. . It bores the fans. It's too many teams to have for for such a tournament. It also means that teams like Wales and Scotland have more chance to qualify. You have to ask .. is that a good thing?

A. Harry Redknapp – make him return to the scene of the crime
B. Fake Sheik – Al Fahim (the wanabee telly tubby)

No thank you.
Should have got him when he first left Rangers and taught him the Saints way. Too late now and he wouldn't fit with what we already have.
Liverpool have used him the wrong way, something they have done with most of last seasons signings, the best thing to happen was Rodgers who will make them all play his way or get out.
Much the same as Nigel is doing here.
Nigel does prefer younger players, that is good, but of course experience is always needed to help them progress. Good experience is the key though, we do not need players who are used to losing.

As his trusted advisor, I confirm I am 100% behind Alicescat and I am thinking of opening a bank account for him.

He fell asleep and missed the NC interview but this was seen as a strength at Spurrs where looking sleepy and a bit dopey are seen as strengths.

Could have been. Although she wouldn't do much for us in mid-field. Sweet F.A. I've always liked her.

Charlie Adams is a postman in Bittern. He's got a great delivery with his left hand. Straight up the garden path and into the letter box. Brilliant!

Much the same as Nigel is doing here. Nigel does prefer younger players, that is good, but of course experience is always needed to help them progress. Good experience is the key though, we do not need players who are used to losing.[/p][/quote]What a load of old tosh !![/p][/quote]He said Charlie Adams, not Charlie Adam.[/p][/quote]Sure it wasn't Sweet Fanny Adams?[/p][/quote]Could have been. Although she wouldn't do much for us in mid-field. Sweet F.A. I've always liked her. Charlie Adams is a postman in Bittern. He's got a great delivery with his left hand. Straight up the garden path and into the letter box. Brilliant! george chivers

Breaking news -

Alicesdad's cat is 3-1 at Betfred to be the next Spurs Manager, after talks broke down at SMS with Nicola Cortese when the cat failed to turn up for interview.

The cat was last seen arriving at King's Cross from Cardiff.

Read today's Daily Echo for the full story.
As his trusted advisor, I confirm I am 100% behind Alicescat and I am thinking of opening a bank account for him.

He fell asleep and missed the NC interview but this was seen as a strength at Spurrs where looking sleepy and a bit dopey are seen as strengths.
The cat will be ideal at (S)purrs, for the reasons already mentioned, plus he will love curling up to sleep inside the brown paper bags left by the previous incumbent.

I can just see him now in the technical area during the north London derby - he won't take any sh1te from Arsenal Whinger!

I know to many this may be old news . But via the Daily mail web site I read that Saints are going to sign Upson drom Stoke City. The article said that because Robert Huth had signed a new contract, Upson's First team chances are going to be limited. It was suggested that the fee was going to be around the half a million mark. It would be better if we discussed footie on this site rather that Alice's Dads cat. It shows the news is drying up at the moment. I have a feeling that the closer we get to pre-season training things will start moving on the transfer front. Now that Eire have been dumped out of the Euro's , we might go for an unamed Eire international !

Spot on ! I think I made my point! Alicescat has served his purpose... for the time being.

Not sure about the Upson story. I think it's all puff and nonsense.


For heavens sake why are we still reading this thread ? The news of the under 21 development team pre season fixtures, one of which is behind closed doors, has just broken.

The rush to read it will probably crash the server.

I could probably get a more informed unbiased opinion from my cat. Shrewd beast my cat !! I have only seen JR a couple of times, the rest was on telly. I can't really judge objectively but if NA and NC rate him thats good enough for me as it's their heads on the block not mine. There is so much unconfirmed speculation about this deal which may all be a load of smoke and mirrors. Fact - The fee is not known. Te club has not confirmed this. My cat is probably worth a lot more than £7 million but I can't confirm that. Fact - Nobody knows which other clubs were after him. All comment so far is guesswork. No other club has approached me about my cat. Fact - JR hasn't played in the premiership. Neither has my cat. Fact - NA was keen to get him last year but failed probably because he thought he might go up with Burnley and thought we had no chance. Now he has joined us because we have been promoted. Shrewd move JR ! I think my cat would approve of that - like all cats he would go to the first person who fed him the most food. Fact - I don't like Agents, Advisors, People who get paid in cash in brown paper packets or people who have dogs with bank accounts. My cat doesn't have a bank account. Fact - JR must perform at the highest level now against the top players. If he succeeeds I will be delighted, if he gets an England place I will also be pleased. I doubt that my cat will get a call up though as he is getting too old.. but when he was at his peak he was clocking up two birds and four mice a week. What do you think of THAT Akinbiyi ? Why hasn't anyone interviewed my cat?
After that, I'm off to Ladbrokes to get the odds on Lambert, Lallana, Rodriguez & your cat playing for England at the next World Cup. It is rumoured (allegedly) that your cat is now worth £8m & will be a big hit in the Premier League. He is allegedly rumoured to be a close season target for Spurs, Liverpool & Newcastle. A source close to the cat reportedly said 'He is the biggest feline prospect in football. His close control & ball skills are excellent. He always lands on his feet, has great pace & a mean body swerve'. Watch this space.
And with 9 lives the cat has to be a good long term prospect!

I think a more likely signing is Dave Blake he has been spotted in a taxi outside Saint Mary's and has gone on record as stating his admiration for Spider and Fonte. If this falls through, I think Saints may make enquiries about Peter Fielder, with Martin out on loan, he could be the squad that we need. COYR WE ARE THE RED ARMY
