Saints are considering a formal bid for Crystal Palace pair Wilfried Zaha and Nathaniel Clyne.

The Daily Echo understands that the talented youngsters could be the subject of an £8m joint offer from Saints.

Palace, though, will try and get even more for their hottest stars.

Zaha and Clyne fit the Saints transfer mould perfectly – talented, young, British players who won’t command big wages.

They would also complete more of the Saints jigsaw as Nigel Adkins looks to recruit a pacy winger and a right back ready for the start of the Premier League campaign.

Palace are already resigned to losing Clyne with the 21-year-old defender out of contract.

Though Clyne’s deal is expiring, Palace are still attempting to agree a fee directly with clubs, rather than lose him to a compensation fee set by a tribunal.

Although the Eagles are thought to value Clyne at about £5m, the likelihood is they will have to accept nearer £2m.

His signing would be a major coup for Saints if they could land him with Manchester United, Newcastle, Reading, Fulham and West Ham also interested.

A £2m valuation of Clyne would fit perfectly into an £8m joint bid from Saints with 19-year-old livewire Zaha rated at about £6m.

Palace are keen to hold on to Zaha but, in the face of such a big bid, may be forced to let him move on to the top flight.

Zaha was born in the Ivory Coast but moved to London as a child and, like Clyne, has come through the ranks at Palace.

He is still very much a raw and precocious talent, but has blistering pace out wide and has already racked up 81 appearances for Palace.

Like Clyne, he has reached England under-21 level.

He was named Football League Young Player of the Year last season.

Palace chairman Steve Parish has already stated his desire to get a move for Clyne sorted out and said: “There is a bit of action in the background and we know there is a lot of interest.

“It is just about sorting out who it is best to go to and who will put the right money on the table. We’re all working to get an outcome.

“Clubs don’t want to go down the tribunal route.

“It is a game of cat and mouse on the fee — we’ve just got to let that play out.”

I'm all for a talented, young side but where is the experience coming from, especially of the premier league. I think a goalie and a centre half are more pressing but I'm sure it's all getting done on the QT.

Fingers crossed, lets hope it happens, I do like the old style of outward wingers (it's my age). lets also hope this malarkey of Davis and Buttner gets resolved soon, it can't do NA/NC and the players any good

Nice idea, but I can't see Palace selling us 2 of their prized assets at the same time, and we're not that desperate that we need to make a Birmingham style, eye-watering offer to land two hot prospects.

Bit more concerned about securing Davis from Rangers as its all gone very quiet.

Like the signings of Rodriguez, Davis, Sharp, Lee, and Hoovield, for example?

These were all reported by the papers long before Saints confirmed the deals. The OS is just marketing to get people to buy tickets. It's fine for what it is but don't think its ever going to tell you anything interesting!!!

what on earth is going on at Southampton. Like most of you I have been waiting patiently for news of signings and J Rod apart nothing has been done that makes sense. David and Buttner have both collapsed.Arguably Saints should have done their homework in both cases and the club is now in limbo over both. The Buttner deal should have been confirmed by now are we to believe that NC has now cancelled the deal? Im sorry but I am beginning to get irritated by the holier than thou approach to signings adopted by NC it seems that if there is even something slightly untoward with a deal he scraps it and moves onto another target which may or more likely will not happen. He needs to get real I think there is no such thing as perfection in business anyway.

Some of the comments on here are just crazy....and yes, I am a season ticket holder!

People questioning NA and NC when all they have done is deliver exactly what we have wanted, time and again, and earlier than in "the plan"!!

There is nothing wrong with the way we do business, it is behind closed doors, not fuelling papers or bowing to agents, and ensuring the good name of Southampton FC is not dragged through the mud like it is with so many other clubs.

I love Saints as much as the next man, and I trust the management team to be doing the right things, and that they will be done in the best possible time frame.

Zaha looked good and has the pace we need but, i feel we do need a bit of experience added to the squad. I don't have to tell anybody what a bloody big step up from Championship to THE BEST LEAGUE IN THE WORLD. Cant wait for it all to begin.

The Zaha interested was first published on Monday in the sun and most papers have covered it since. As for Clyne not seen anything before today.
Davies is a saints player all that has to be clarified is if rangers are due a transfer fee or not. There is a clause in his contract to be released for 1.6m anyways. It would seem that the Rangers players have the right to move as free agents.

As mentioned on other posts Davies is a Saints player and Buttner will be done this week. And you say NA & NC didn't do there homework. David Moyes and Martin O'Neill have both signed Rangers players and are in the same position so we aren't the only club who have been stung by the shananigans going on north of the border. With regards to Buttner, if you believe what you read not even the club the own Buttner knew about this 3rd party so how do you expect NA or NC to know.
We have just been unlucky, I have every faith in the Manager and Chairman. Exciting times are ahead.

It sounds bonkers but it wouldn't be surprising.

I don't think people realise how ruthless NC is, if he feels that things are sliding he will definitely sack any manager before things get worse.

I've seen previous comments comparing Adkins with Moyes, fair comment. Moyes has a knack of being able to pluck players from lower divisions and make them into top players. It's pointless bringing in journeymen, we need to build strong foundations for the future.

Glad you should think so. Being a multi-millionaire business man does not necessarily make for a successful football chairman, as has been proven time and time again. Managing second and third tier teams do not necessarily transfer to success in the premiership. We are in a different “ball” game in the premiership requiring management skills that are not necessarily found in the business world as you well know. NC may well be a multimillionaire but it’s not his money invested in the club.

I like the sound of these two, Clyne i feel could be a massive hit, although it seems that the Naughton deal wont happen if we are looking at him, Zaha I've heard might be a bit of a handfull and needs to get over his ego.

On another note I've heard a rumour that we are looking at Owen Hargreaves on a free, now I know hes abit old and haggid but as a mentour for Schneiderlin and Cork he could be a massive figure in the dressing room.

Does anyone know when the shirt numbers are being released? I assume on Saturday when we get a look at the boys in action.

What are you talking about? In the last three years NC has taken a broken club from the brink of extinction in last place in League 1 to being debt-free in the Premier League, while investing millions in our training facilities, winning a cup at Wembley and setting out our brand as purveyors of passing football featuring exciting, young, largely English talent. Now just what in that makes you think he has the first idea what he's doing?

Glad you should think so. Being a multi-millionaire business man does not necessarily make for a successful football chairman, as has been proven time and time again. Managing second and third tier teams do not necessarily transfer to success in the premiership. We are in a different “ball” game in the premiership requiring management skills that are not necessarily found in the business world as you well know. NC may well be a multimillionaire but it’s not his money invested in the club.
If you are 'truely Saints' as your moniker suggests, why not try having a little patience and belief in the Chairman and Manager of the football club you support rather than dropping churlish and unsupportive remarks like the one you posted earlier. Your latest comment does sound like you have some kind of grudge against Mr Cortese, as the impression you give is not exactly complimentary to the man or what he has helped to achieve. You might want to take a look at his background before he came to Saints before you start banging on about 'management skills'.

He had the best goals per shot ratio in world football last season.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.
I'm sure an extremely successful multi-millionaire businessman and a double promotion winning manager can learn lots from listening to you two.
Glad you should think so. Being a multi-millionaire business man does not necessarily make for a successful football chairman, as has been proven time and time again. Managing second and third tier teams do not necessarily transfer to success in the premiership. We are in a different “ball” game in the premiership requiring management skills that are not necessarily found in the business world as you well know. NC may well be a multimillionaire but it’s not his money invested in the club.
If you are 'truely Saints' as your moniker suggests, why not try having a little patience and belief in the Chairman and Manager of the football club you support rather than dropping churlish and unsupportive remarks like the one you posted earlier. Your latest comment does sound like you have some kind of grudge against Mr Cortese, as the impression you give is not exactly complimentary to the man or what he has helped to achieve. You might want to take a look at his background before he came to Saints before you start banging on about 'management skills'.
TrulySaints shouldn't lose any sleep as sure those in the know are more in the know than we mere observers who know little. It's almost impossible to understand what is happening behind the scenes unless you are there so the merry-go-around is to be enjoyed, not worried over. I'll be worried if come the end of the transfer window, we've signed no-one, not in mid-July.

Normally Saints do deals behind closed doors, so leaks about deals must be coming from out side the club who have a vested interest. Namely agents who are wanting to tote players they represent, and name the player who Saints are interested in so they get them selves a better cut. Or could it be the clubs them selves who are doing the leaking, to alert other clubs of the availability of players to push up the price of the player. To be honest our Chairman and manager with go into an negotiations with clubs trusting that they will keep their dealings confidential. It seems that there are something one can not control, and that is football clubs and agents talking to the press. In the Buttner case Southampton have never openly past comment regarding Buttner, and Buttner,s current club and his agent have been talking to the press and local media.I for one take the line that unless we read it directly from the official web site, it is not gospel. The papers can say what they like, I have more faith in the chairman and Sir Nigel, than media speculation.
The Davis deal is not dead, but very much alive and Saints now await temporary international clearance from Fifa. I further player has left Rangers today and that is six players who now have left.

Football has lost its working class roots.
I remember back in 2006 I scraped the money together to see our 3-3 home draw against Newcastle. It was a truly amazing match.

Our first goal was conceded when Lundekvam was caught out playing with a Rubik Cube in the penalty area. Then Beattie scored our first when Shay Given slipped and his willy popped out to be seen momentarily on live television. That was also the game when Griffit scored from an offside position but the linesman said he didn't see it as he looked down at that moment thinking he could see a hedgehog on the pitch.

A truly amazing match - and I had a 2p accumulator spot bet at 498 billion to 1 on all these things happening! After the first two incidents, I just couldn't believe it when that linesman did that.

Anyhow, I've been a season ticket holder ever since and three of the four I buy are left empty so I have lots of space and don't have to worry about sitting next to a really fat bloke or somebody a bit smelly and poor.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Still, if you don't try .....

I took more interest in football when they got rid of the Floating Bridge. I was never a good sailor or tree climber. Rarely went upstairs on the bus. Used to listen to Saints down at the Dell whilst standing on my cross-bar looking over the wall in Northlands Road as Butch White destroyed someone's wicket and hearing the cheers as George O'Brien blasted another "unstoppable" past some nervy keeper.
These days from the bridge it's so different with the planes flying low as those on board strain to see Ricky complete another hat-trick. (Best seen from the Islander going to Alderney I'm told).
Ah, the Premiership, the Promised Land, the smell of the crowd, the Dagenham Girl Pipers, the rattle of the worry beads, the crumpled programme, awful lager at half-time, the Albion Band, the foul mouthed Docker, Match of the Day, Kenneth Wolstenholme, Is this all a dream?

I was impressed with the right back when i watched him twice last season Box to box player that can actually get back and cover when an attack breaks down. Zaha looked good and has the pace we need but, i feel we do need a bit of experience added to the squad. I don't have to tell anybody what a bloody big step up from Championship to THE BEST LEAGUE IN THE WORLD. Cant wait for it all to begin.

As a quadruple season ticket holder, I would like to point out that it would need five of you Itchen underlings to agree upon an opinion for that opinion to carry the same weight as mine.

Meanwhile, my unchallenged view on life is that the hokey kokey really is what it's all about.
What about the luxury membership season ticket holders??

Or should I just glance over your opinions not really caring? I feel i'm a considerably better supporter than all of you! :-)
HANG ON STEVIESTEVE. Never said we were better fans than you. We just know we will see every league home game for this coming season. As a non season ticket holder , you cant say that!!!

So many doubting Thomases on here.
This management has taken us from the bottom of div 1 to the Premier league, as they intended, only quicker than expected.
They have made some incredible signings to do this.
They have also done this outside of the media spotlight. Ignor all the speculators,
they are only there to sell papers.
Learn to have faith, have some patience.
It astonishes me how many football managers we have on here offering there vast experience of transfer negotiations.
Transfers will take time,it has to be done right.
Right players, right price, right wages, right for the Saints Way.
I for one have 100% faith in our management.
Can't wait to see all our new players for the new season.

Oh joy! (except the bit which says 'they WILL start next season').

Back to the real issue of the day, I, as a non-season-ticket holder of many years' standing, just want to put on record how delighted I am that this post will not be read by any of those God-awful season-ticket holder types. Bad eggs the lot of them.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Still, if you don't try .....
all it takes for evil to prevail .....
..... and all that!
Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point.

Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

Nonetheless, your non season ticket holder opinion is entitled to a hearing. In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

To facilitate status recognition these should be displayed in small 10 point type. Season ticket holder postings can be in 25 point and quadruple ticket holder postings in 50 point CAPS. (plus special dispensation for RedArmy1 postings).

Unfortunately, some of the season ticket holders on here have an overly snobby attitude to the less fortunate. But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.

We'll soon find out. March On You Saints, March On![/p][/quote]You missed the smelly ****! Fatty x Ford Worker

Back to the real issue of the day, I, as a non-season-ticket holder of many years' standing, just want to put on record how delighted I am that this post will not be read by any of those God-awful season-ticket holder types. Bad eggs the lot of them.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point.

Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

Nonetheless, your non season ticket holder opinion is entitled to a hearing. In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

To facilitate status recognition these should be displayed in small 10 point type. Season ticket holder postings can be in 25 point and quadruple ticket holder postings in 50 point CAPS. (plus special dispensation for RedArmy1 postings).

Unfortunately, some of the season ticket holders on here have an overly snobby attitude to the less fortunate. But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.
I feel honoured that you, a multi-STH, even took the trouble to reply.

That Puppy thinks so highly of himself. (Mind you, he knows how to sink a pint.)
not really , he's a self confessed lightweight ........ but it's all relative i suppose .
I can only judge as I find and I have mostly seen him only in obscure Championship localities of the past, where he's fine company just as long as he's holding a relatively full pint glass.

Of course, come the home matches, like you, Bill and Gossie, he's among the first to leave The Station when the non-ST holders like me show up at 2.15pm on match days!

Does anyone know when the shirt numbers are being released? I assume on Saturday when we get a look at the boys in action.
Hargreaves hasnt played since the last millenium.
He would be a laughing stock in the dressing room.
Wont happen.
He had the best goals per shot ratio in world football last season.

Admittedly, he did only have one shot but boy did he make it count.
That may be true. but he,s not young. he,s not English, and he,s not Ricky
Im not saying he's Ricky, just saying wih all these new whippr snappers flying round te pitch Hargreaves (when he's fit admittedy) is a anchor in the middle of the pitch)

And not English, shame about those 13 International Caps?

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.
I'm sure an extremely successful multi-millionaire businessman and a double promotion winning manager can learn lots from listening to you two.
how do you know what NC is worth his name is not Liebherr.
For your infromation I have run a succesful international business and doubt that I need lessons from either of them, certainly not when it comes to getting deals done. Take it from me they are stretching credibility somewhat especially over the Buttner deal.
If they are not going to complete why the hell dont they come out and say so?? sheer arrogance if you ask me...

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.
I'm sure an extremely successful multi-millionaire businessman and a double promotion winning manager can learn lots from listening to you two.
Well said Ted. Couldn't have put it better myself. Guess some people just aren't happy unless they have something to moan about. Keep the faith lads, NC and NA haven't done too bad so far have they?
it has been nearly a week since the Buttner deal hit a problem and there is simply no news from the Saints as to progress or not
are you still going to keep the faith if no deals get done by the time the season kicks off what will be your excuse then. Tell you what youll be moaning far more than I will as I have already accepted that once again NC has cocked up on transfers. FORTE was brought in not because he was thought to be a great acquisition but because NC had failed to get any of the primary targets. FACT

Does anyone know when the shirt numbers are being released? I assume on Saturday when we get a look at the boys in action.
Hargreaves hasnt played since the last millenium.
He would be a laughing stock in the dressing room.
Wont happen.
He had the best goals per shot ratio in world football last season.

Admittedly, he did only have one shot but boy did he make it count.
That may be true. but he,s not young. he,s not English, and he,s not Ricky
Im not saying he's Ricky, just saying wih all these new whippr snappers flying round te pitch Hargreaves (when he's fit admittedy) is a anchor in the middle of the pitch)

And not English, shame about those 13 International Caps?
kevin pietersen has loads of caps , is he english ?
Actually Hargreaves is half english, half welsh so not half bad! Not sure why he would be a laughing stock.

Oh joy! (except the bit which says 'they WILL start next season').

Back to the real issue of the day, I, as a non-season-ticket holder of many years' standing, just want to put on record how delighted I am that this post will not be read by any of those God-awful season-ticket holder types. Bad eggs the lot of them.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Still, if you don't try .....
all it takes for evil to prevail .....
..... and all that!
Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point.

Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

Nonetheless, your non season ticket holder opinion is entitled to a hearing. In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

To facilitate status recognition these should be displayed in small 10 point type. Season ticket holder postings can be in 25 point and quadruple ticket holder postings in 50 point CAPS. (plus special dispensation for RedArmy1 postings).

Unfortunately, some of the season ticket holders on here have an overly snobby attitude to the less fortunate. But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.
I feel honoured that you, a multi-STH, even took the trouble to reply.

That Puppy thinks so highly of himself. (Mind you, he knows how to sink a pint.)
not really , he's a self confessed lightweight ........ but it's all relative i suppose .
I can only judge as I find and I have mostly seen him only in obscure Championship localities of the past, where he's fine company just as long as he's holding a relatively full pint glass.

Of course, come the home matches, like you, Bill and Gossie, he's among the first to leave The Station when the non-ST holders like me show up at 2.15pm on match days!
i'm assuming that as a STH i'll get a chauffer driven limo to the ground so i won't have to leave til 14.55 ......... please tell me i didn't dream this !
Sorry, Slugger, but yes, you drempt it. Just like I drempt that Thomas Upton, GHK and MonteCristoSaint found themselves sat together in a pub the day that Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz and Catherine Zeta-Jones popped in for a swift half.

TU: 'Well guys, let's be off, the girls in here are right ugly.'

GHK: 'Couldn't agree more, and what's worse, one of them's Welsh!'

MCS: 'Yeah! And the blond one keeps winking at me. Come on, let's go down the White Horse.'

That bit of the dream wasn't bad. Trouble was, in the same dream ..........

For your infromation I have run a succesful international business and doubt that I need lessons from either of them, certainly not when it comes to getting deals done. Take it from me they are stretching credibility somewhat especially over the Buttner deal.
If they are not going to complete why the hell dont they come out and say so?? sheer arrogance if you ask me...

Glad you should think so. Being a multi-millionaire business man does not necessarily make for a successful football chairman, as has been proven time and time again. Managing second and third tier teams do not necessarily transfer to success in the premiership. We are in a different “ball” game in the premiership requiring management skills that are not necessarily found in the business world as you well know. NC may well be a multimillionaire but it’s not his money invested in the club.
If you are 'truely Saints' as your moniker suggests, why not try having a little patience and belief in the Chairman and Manager of the football club you support rather than dropping churlish and unsupportive remarks like the one you posted earlier. Your latest comment does sound like you have some kind of grudge against Mr Cortese, as the impression you give is not exactly complimentary to the man or what he has helped to achieve. You might want to take a look at his background before he came to Saints before you start banging on about 'management skills'.
I don't think there is a grudge involved. Unfortunately NC heads a public business and will always attract criticism if things go wrong. The Buttner deal does look like a fiasco which could have been avoided and even if it does go through in a weeks time it still is going to look extremely messy. I do think in a business of this kind PR is of great value and the more NC refuses to comment on transfers the more flack he will attract. Its that simple.Other clubs indeed the great majority are far more forthcoming on their deals and the benefit lies in keeping supporters happy and informed.

Well, I guess only time will tell.
Ha ha - I thought truly saint was being ironic but clearly not. What an idiot. Successive promotions. Great football. Quality signings. And you want NC and NA to step aside. You're havin' a giraffe surely....!!
As the one who stirred things up in the first place nowhere do I say that either NC or NA should step aside but I do think they ought to keep fans better informed on their transfer dealings.Telling fans not to believe speculation until it comes up on the OS is one thing but the Buttner and David deals are already public knowledge so why have the club failed to comment one week on from the announcement that there were problems? I'm sorry but that is extremely irritating and to be frank they would do better to adopt a similar approach to most clubs and keep the media informed which they refuse to do.Whether or not transfers are in the public domain makes little difference in practice as the selling club will more often than not reveal Saints dealings anyway.In short the policy doesnt work period.

Adomah was incredible away and at home, he murdered us.Bristols best player.

seems to be a lot of commenters on here who do not support Saints ! !
that is, if you support your club you understand that not everything goes according to plan and so it is better not to raise the hopes of us by telling us something that might not go according to plan !
Buutner deal so far has all been done by the newspapers who have made a right hash of it bt announcing the deal was done, when it wasn't. You know it wasn't because it wasn't on the OS!
The Steve Davis deal is done because it was on the OS!
Rangers are asking for compensation, not just from us, but from every club who have purchased one of their ex-players.
Fatty has been banging on about Adomah for ages, he is right, he is good. how do we know that Saints have not enquired? Because the Echo haven't said it???
Did we know about Buttner before? no? did the Echo?
By the way my opinion counts as I am an STH now.(well I will be when it arrives!)

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.
I'm sure an extremely successful multi-millionaire businessman and a double promotion winning manager can learn lots from listening to you two.
how do you know what NC is worth his name is not Liebherr.
For your infromation I have run a succesful international business and doubt that I need lessons from either of them, certainly not when it comes to getting deals done. Take it from me they are stretching credibility somewhat especially over the Buttner deal.
If they are not going to complete why the hell dont they come out and say so?? sheer arrogance if you ask me...

On another note I've heard a rumour that we are looking at Owen Hargreaves on a free, now I know hes abit old and haggid but as a mentour for Schneiderlin and Cork he could be a massive figure in the dressing room.

Does anyone know when the shirt numbers are being released? I assume on Saturday when we get a look at the boys in action.
The right back position is more of a priority i think, so I would be happy to get Clyne, but Zaha does looks the business as well. As for Owen Hargreaves - I think Jack Hargreaves is in better shape than him! (showing my age now)

montechristo....you say Saints should have done their homework over the two recent deals.
It is you who should do some homework.
Rangers players have been sold now to 7 different clubs, the Scottish FA have said that they expected the response from Rangers and have acted accordingly.
Buttner's club didn't know about a 3rd party so how would Saints have known?
Your arrogance is astounding, but then you are an international financier and I expect you have minions to do the thinking for you at your business, you certainly have absolutely no idea how badly you rub people up the wrong way!

I agree, I would prefer Naughton to Clyne thats all, people on previous threads have said that Buttner can play on both flanks.

As for Hargreaves I was only trying to state it may be usefull having an experienced player who can keep the ball and pick a pass. I understand that he may be past it a little and injury prone plus he may be placed a pay while play contract. But having a ex england player may put a bit of confidence to the young lads.

I'm afraid I dont know who Jack Hargreaves is. Sorry lol.

I'm enjoying this build up. Sensible signings and rumours of more. It would be brilliant to have a rumour of an incoming top notch star but that wouldn't be part of the new regime that's sees us doing fair honest trading within our limits... no spouting off. All the talk from a few doubters is way way way out of line. Get on the bus. Saints have gone up twice.. Remember Nicola insists on aiming his sights high and expects achievement. I'm sure we'll all be happy to finish safe and sound this year but Nicola and Nigel will want better.Together let's aim to make Europe the third.

Barking! There's a clue there somewhere.

That said, Fatty might be right. While most people I've asked think Zaha would be great, it was Adomah who looked the biz against Saints last season.
Adomah was incredible away and at home, he murdered us.Bristols best player.

You should have sat in the away end listening to the Robins fans saying ... "Go on Albert!" in their unique Bristolian way.
Perhaps you were?

Oh joy! (except the bit which says 'they WILL start next season').

Back to the real issue of the day, I, as a non-season-ticket holder of many years' standing, just want to put on record how delighted I am that this post will not be read by any of those God-awful season-ticket holder types. Bad eggs the lot of them.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Still, if you don't try .....
all it takes for evil to prevail .....
..... and all that!
Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point.

Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

Nonetheless, your non season ticket holder opinion is entitled to a hearing. In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

To facilitate status recognition these should be displayed in small 10 point type. Season ticket holder postings can be in 25 point and quadruple ticket holder postings in 50 point CAPS. (plus special dispensation for RedArmy1 postings).

Unfortunately, some of the season ticket holders on here have an overly snobby attitude to the less fortunate. But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.
i would just like to say that because of a body of water that prevents me from being a S.T. holder, i and others like me strassie,norwegian mush and all other overseas saints should not be treated as second class citizens. because our opinions have to travel over the high seas they should be treated with due respect.
of course i realise that all you S.T. holders will probably ignore this post anyway

I agree, I would prefer Naughton to Clyne thats all, people on previous threads have said that Buttner can play on both flanks. As for Hargreaves I was only trying to state it may be usefull having an experienced player who can keep the ball and pick a pass. I understand that he may be past it a little and injury prone plus he may be placed a pay while play contract. But having a ex england player may put a bit of confidence to the young lads. I'm afraid I dont know who Jack Hargreaves is. Sorry lol.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.

Oh! http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Oliver_Kite


I bet he and Jack had many a fine time together dangling their tempting rods at the passing trout along the banks of the Avon.

BTW, 'fly fishing'. Never got that, does it involve airplanes hovering above rivers? And 'coarse fishing', is that when you sit all day on the river bank, getting soaked and failing to catch anything more than a cold and feel it gives you the right to swear and curse the whole time?

On another note, the company that owns the land around Fratton Park has gone into administration.

The whole city is like a vortex made of spinning sh1t.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm having doubts about the ability of the NC and NA duo to manage us through the premiership and am not surprised that the bookies have NA as favorite to get his marching orders this coming season.

Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point. Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.
i would just like to say that because of a body of water that prevents me from being a S.T. holder, i and others like me strassie,norwegian mush and all other overseas saints should not be treated as second class citizens. because our opinions have to travel over the high seas they should be treated with due respect. of course i realise that all you S.T. holders will probably ignore this post anyway

(plus special dispensation for RedArmy1 postings). Unfortunately, some of the season ticket holders on here have an overly snobby attitude to the less fortunate. But as you can see from this post, the ever-inclusive Confucious will always stand up for the riff raff and the great unwashed.[/p][/quote]i would just like to say that because of a body of water that prevents me from being a S.T. holder, i and others like me strassie,norwegian mush and all other overseas saints should not be treated as second class citizens. because our opinions have to travel over the high seas they should be treated with due respect. of course i realise that all you S.T. holders will probably ignore this post anyway[/p][/quote]The Itchen South Hound Pound welcome you x[/p][/quote]thanks mate i and probably the others really appreciate this grand gesture. i had no doubt that our disadvantage would not be held against us and can now post as an equal to S.T. holders and have my posts read understood and thrown out exactly the same as anyones proud to be a SAINT THANKS[/p][/quote]First time posting on here .. only seen Saints live Twice in past 3 seasons having been exiled in Singapore. I did manage 650+ games in previous 30yrs and would like to seek pseudo-ST status by proxy so I can join in the PL fun. Please do not hold the 7000 mile gap against me, my heart & Soul have been at every game since my body left.[/p][/quote]i think you can consider it done.as you can see by being ignored you have achieved the same status as everyone else. please ignore this post circa 66 saint

We have more chance of getting Lionel Messi and Neymar then this coming off.

Utter fantasy reporting. Clyne will go to Man Utd and Zaha will almost certainly go to Newcastle.

Oh joy! (except the bit which says 'they WILL start next season').

Back to the real issue of the day, I, as a non-season-ticket holder of many years' standing, just want to put on record how delighted I am that this post will not be read by any of those God-awful season-ticket holder types. Bad eggs the lot of them.

In fact, I'm going to write to NC and insist he has them all banned from home and away matches.

Alas, rumour has it he's up to his neck in pandering to them. So, I'm not really expecting him to take my letters as seriously as he takes those written by Confucious.

Same old, same old; one rule for one, one rule for the others!

Still, if you don't try .....
all it takes for evil to prevail .....
..... and all that!
Of course Nicola will be on our side as 'one of us'. But I think you have a point.

Of course, it's healthy to have a pecking order in all walks of life. Great democrats such as myself believe everyone should start life even - whilst only the despotic Trots believe everyone should finish even.

Nonetheless, your non season ticket holder opinion is entitled to a hearing. In fact I think the Echo should allocate at least one hour every afternoon as an 'open window' for non season ticket holder postings.

I feel honoured that you, a multi-STH, even took the trouble to reply.

That Puppy thinks so highly of himself. (Mind you, he knows how to sink a pint.)
not really , he's a self confessed lightweight ........ but it's all relative i suppose .
I can only judge as I find and I have mostly seen him only in obscure Championship localities of the past, where he's fine company just as long as he's holding a relatively full pint glass.

Of course, come the home matches, like you, Bill and Gossie, he's among the first to leave The Station when the non-ST holders like me show up at 2.15pm on match days!
i'm assuming that as a STH i'll get a chauffer driven limo to the ground so i won't have to leave til 14.55 ......... please tell me i didn't dream this !
Sorry, Slugger, but yes, you drempt it. Just like I drempt that Thomas Upton, GHK and MonteCristoSaint found themselves sat together in a pub the day that Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz and Catherine Zeta-Jones popped in for a swift half.

TU: 'Well guys, let's be off, the girls in here are right ugly.'

GHK: 'Couldn't agree more, and what's worse, one of them's Welsh!'

MCS: 'Yeah! And the blond one keeps winking at me. Come on, let's go down the White Horse.'

That bit of the dream wasn't bad. Trouble was, in the same dream ..........




....... I drempt I was down The White Horse!
hardly likely, unless you also "drempt" the pub was in Portugal.
Those ladies might get serious competition from the local lasses who by and large are a good looking crew. Oh well, what a dull life for some of us eh?

Bom dia!

Yep! I put my hand up, and will go to the back of the class.

Tiredness and speedy typing is no excuse.

I should be "dumpt" by my school before I'm "thumpt" by one of my students. I suppose I was just "pumpt" up ahead of the new season.

I guess, like Bill, I'm another who can kiss the chance of (to quote Bill) 'a high-powered job at your multi-national business empire' goodbye. :)

btw, differences about transfer progress aside, what part of Portugal do you live in?

I'll be in the North in two weeks' time. Staying with family in Fafe + the little matter of our wedding in Braga. The weather over there better be an improvement on France and the UK!
