  1. BOOM! Won the massive bidding war for him in GC1. 😁
  2. Poor old Newport. They had a brand new pitch laid over summer and as a result it played right into our hands. They caused PL teams a load of trouble on a tricky playing surface. The pitch last night was pristine and we just hammered them.
  3. I now expect Livramento to get a similar rise soon.
  4. If Livramento carries on like this he'll rise from 70 to low 80's in one go!
  5. Thierry Small. Just signed for Southampton and goes into first team squad. Rated 65, aged 17.
  6. Now confirmed by Saints. Joins on a 3 year deal and goes straight into the first team squad.
  7. Saints close to completing the signing of Thierry Small after he rejected a professional contract at Everton. Apparently he's going straight into the first team squad. Another must buy I think (he's already on DB, rated 65).
  8. He wanted to leave for first team football. They do have a buy back clause.
  9. Bloody hell Livramento is just ****ing incredible. Went to the Saints-United game today (great point for us 😁) and he was brilliant. He is so confident on the ball and has the ability to beat players and run a long way with the ball. Big rating increase coming his way.
  10. I've received an offer for Havertz of 4mill plus Chiesa. I'm in two minds on this one. I'm 60-40 in favour of accepting. Chiesa had a great Euro's but Havertz looks like he could have a massive season for Chelsea. Advice?
  11. Armstrong's first Saints goal to come at Newcastle 3rd game of the season. 😆
  12. Yeah, I like this move. Adam Armstrong has also travelled south for a medical tomorrow after we've finally agreed a fee with Blackburn for him. Given our limited budget, I think we've made some very astute signings.
  13. Went to the Saints v Athletic Bilbao friendly today. Tino Livramento came on at HT and got a brilliant assist within 3 minutes of coming on. Chested the ball down and played a quite brilliant pass through to Walcott who scored. You have got to get him when he gets added. He's going to rated 70-75 I would have thought and he is going to play in the PL this season. He might even play as a right midfielder in front of Walker-Peters. But he looks a special, special talent from what I saw today.
  14. Official: Messi will not return to Barcelona.
  15. We've been heavily linked with Adam Armstrong so he's the obvious answer. I'm also hoping we move for Edouard - I reckon we need to sign 2 strikers now.
  16. I really like Grealish but 100% Pedri.
  17. Ings sold to Villa for 30mill. That came from nowhere. Will miss his clinical ability in front of goal at Saints but good money for a 29 year old in the last year of his contract.
  18. Grealish on the verge of joining City then. That's probably a 92 rating guaranteed in the next PL review.
  19. The fact that he was Chelsea's academy player of the year and a lot of Chelsea fans seem gutted about him going. Also AC Milan and Leipzig were interested amongst others so he wasn't short of suitors. Will be a must buy when he gets added I think. He was Ralph's top target so he'll get good game time.
  20. Saints set to sign their second youngster from Chelsea in Tino Livramento. This one I'm really excited about.
  21. Dynel Simeu has completed his move to Saints. Free transfer, but could rise to 1.5mill if clauses are met.
  22. I watched Cardiff v Saints tonight in our first pre-season friendly and Nathan Tella absolutely destroyed them after coming on after an hour. It was 1-0 at the time. It finished 4-0. Could be an absolute bargain at the moment rated 77.
  23. I just don't know what to expect from Saints this season. I said before the start of last season we were a team to watch out for and for the first half of the season they proved me right - we carried on our form from when football restarted last June. But then we fell away alarmingly. I don't think we'll qualify for Europe but top 10 is certainly achievable for us - particularly if we keep Ings.
  24. TBH I would be ok with us selling Vestergaard now. We can use the money to invest in other parts of the squad. Salisu, after multiple injury/illness setbacks, is finally ready to show the PL how good he is (he showed it briefly last season).
