This is not a rumour but i thought you guys would want to know, i went to see Watford vs Ipswich tonight and tbh we were pretty appauling for most of it, we can not play the passing at all its the most i have seen any team give away the ball so much, we could of easily lost by 3 or 4 but Almunia had decent game but Taylor was solid and my man of the match. they say give it time but i really dont see this working, your thoughts ?

Believable2 Unbelievable2

Has the way we've been playing for the last decade got us anywhere ? if your truthful you know as well as i do that we were only treading water . We should let Zola at least try and change it for the better , but if he fails what have we really lost!! The clubs financially secure at the moment , instead of in ruin as it would've been without the takeover , so lets give them time and enjoy the ride .

Matt Richie scored his final goal and was emotional at end of game as he secures his deal to promotion favs afc Bournemouth

Believable1 Unbelievable6

Why was Ritchie emotional?
At last he has managed to leave Swindon, and reach the nirvana of his dream move to the South Coast where he can play for the football god that is Paul Groves, formerly manager of Portsmouth (caretaker) and manager of Bournemouth (youthteam). The stuff that dreams are made of.

While others sign players without fuss like Michu to Swansea and Buttner to Man U, we faff and debate only to lose the momentum to other clubs.

Spurs and Liverpool are now back in for Ramirez, the same will happen with Lens and Phillips, if you want to sign someone get in and do it quick or lose out.

21 Aug 2012 20:16:26
cant believe how bad saints have been in the transfer window letting michu slip and now buttner.Also some of the players we have managed to sign went abit iffy i.e clyne,davis i mean why cant we be clinical and buy players for what they are worth rather than trying to get knockdown bargains all the time (BUY SOME PLAYERS AND PAY THE WAGES) also fox has got to be replaiced and bring back the red and white stripes its like a lepord whith out its spots.

you lose a game .. and blame one player, fox.. one bad header .. bet you've never made a mistake in your life ? what a ****** you are .. blackpool were excellent tonite ... leeds maybe top six . blackpool maybe top six as well .. great crowd .. but we on top for 60 mins ....
bring on ipswich .. and they normally beat us......

Agree with you maxi, Fox played well for us last season and made loads of assists, he made one mistake while under pressure and people are hanging him out to dry>>>>>

Well said Max, can't believe how quickly some Saints fans have forgotten where we were 3 years ago. When did we bid for Michu? Buttner chooses United over Saints - who realistically wouldn't other than Clyne who apparently did! Interesting to hear that you think Rodriguez was a knock down price. Bring back the stripes - ffs, stop whining. In case you hadn't noticed our m'ment team have been very successful.

.Easy solutions made to look like a struggle. AVFC fed up of overpriced english talent but there is loads of options out there plus we must take a punt to compete. P.s this is not rumour just an opinion.

OPTIONS. FOR AVFC...Ibrahim Balde/ M.Phillips/ Feghouli/ Brahimi/ Carrol/ Cresswell/ Anan/ Butland/..

Then just utilize our so called youth that do have a bit of talent {nowhere yet ready} that can be nurtured..Eg/ Bannan/Delph/Baker.

We must Invest NOW, We need top talent as a threshold/yard stick to push up our measuring criteria, for example. The reason the Beast is so good is because he has to show he has the talent to challenge Bolt, the same principal applies to the team GB Cyclists-Hoy/Rowers all of which are successful teams.

To summarize every fan wants investment & decent players Villa needs investment & quality, A two footed Marquee signing is a must to reinvigorate the team & fans {Feghouli}. LB AM CF at the very minimum within the transfer window,

You don't want overpriced english talent but yet you say to buy butland??????????????????

Extremely worried about players signing for other clubs.The two quality players that were being talked about around st marys have now signed for two other prem clubs! Michu,performance against q.p.r shows the class of the player, a snip for 2mil.Buttner signs today for man utd,speaks volumes when man utd come calling for a player! Come on NA and NC we need that kind of quality to see us through what will be the toughest premier league season to date.That said i was pleased with the performence on sunday but think adding to our backline is a must.Thoughts please...

Believable3 Unbelievable4

My thoughts? Getting extremely annoyed with a minority of Saints 'fans' criticising the 2 people most responsible for getting us into the Prem from the bottom of league 1. Did we ever actually bid for Michu? Would prefer Ramirez anyway. Buttner choses CL etc over us, no surprise there. Clyne choosing us instead of a host of other Prem clubs is a real surprise.

Dont see Dzeko signing cause hes 3rd in line to play (aguero injured) if they sign Jovetic/Llorente then i could see us getting him but if that doesnt happen then it wont happen.

Llorente if the reports are true that he wants England then surely hes smart to think Spurs have no strikers, get a decent wage and play week in week out! Would like to think so anyway.

Im sick of Ade being a money grabbing (shant finish that) so if we can get someone i would give him the finger and say rot at city, we gave u the chance, showed how much we wanted u so enjoy not playing. (just annoyed at him i know its stupid lol)

finally i may get stick for this but in my opinion if we put faith kn big horse face (Carrol) i thinl.him being a target man and wee Defoe being a poacher and nabbing a few goals. i think its a massive risk but it could work! Just my opinion like.

We shoulf go for one of them and if we can get a nippy goalscorer to go with one of the big lads. great front line if we had that.

P.s im not predicting any of this.. im no Oracle!

West Ham tracking Tom Ince son of former Hammer Paul Ince.
Sam Allardyce also believes he may have missed a trick by not strengthening his forward line.
He has openly stated they still need CB, winger and RB Before window closes.
Stephane M'Bia and Douglas are high on Sam's list of possible targets as is Chris Solly from
Charlton.
Kenwynne Jones still a name that is in the
frame to join West ham if a price can
be agreed

Hello. I have been to told to leave a
message on here by numerous people.

I am a football agent, I will not lie, I
don't know Gaston Ramirez, nor his
agent. However, I do have friends &
connections close to Bologna FC 1909.
I have been watching the emerging mini
saga with Ramirez and I have spoken to
a lot of people with inside knowledge of
it.

Therefore I want to confirm to fans of
Southampton FC that a deal is looking
very likely. However, it may not be until
late this week. The clubs are trying to
sort a deal as no fresh offers have materialised
despite President Guaraldi's stalling to
encourage bids.

As a side note I saw on here that there
are rumours you are interested in Tello
from Barcelona. I can assure you this
is pure fiction and absolutely not true.

Thanks
AZ
