Claude Puel has got the sack.

Felt it's a harsh decision. He probably had the hardest job out of the Southampton managers in recent times. Losing Mane and Pelle were a huge blow. Then they sold Fonte and their best defender missed the entire second half of last season.

DML may get his wish soon. They need to add some firepower to that team like all the teams around them want to. And also keep VdV as I don't think think Yoshida is good enough.

Duffy was pretty awesome last season so I'd rather he stayed (despite his off field conduct).

In terms of signings - we need a new GK and fast. For some reason Stockdale has decided to join Birmingham so we need a new first choice stopper. Bruno will only be able to go on so long so we'll need one or two RBs. We also need a striker as Hemed probably isn't PL quality.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

First sign of a better team sniffing about him and he'll start smashing in the own goals and getting himself sent off. Possibly even in the same game. Mark my words.

You could be talking about either Dunk or Duffy there though...

Summer transfers in: new LB, CB, GK, a proper striker as ours are all quite guff just now. Possibly a new CM also to add some depth. If we can stretch far enough a LW also instead of forcing Coutinho or Firmino out there from time to time.

Season ahead, top four again just don't think we'll be strong enough to win the league or even challenge for that matter. Win either of the FA cup or league cup, goodness it's been too long since we've lifted a trophy. Last 16 of the CL. I know it isn't too much to ask for but I'd be very pleased if all this happened.


I'll be honest, it sounds like you are asking for quite a lot...

Can't see us getting a new GK, Migs did really well towards the end of last season, enough to keep his place. Reckon we'll play Karius in the cups and see how he turns out.
Definitely a new CB and LB. Striker, I'd love to have another in the mold of Torres but not sure who or where they might be that we could get.

I'm still amazed we signed him after such an appalling performance. :lol: Still, nothing like that for us, not yet at least.

Still amused by this although it is a bit of a scumbag tactic.

I honestly thought that Southampton video was going to end up with Liverpool stealing their talent.

Loads of unsubstantiated rumours going around that Conte might be leaving

I eagerly await it all turning out to be bollocks
