|Did Saints Get Some Extra Cash ?|
at 23:49 26 Jun 2020
With Liverpool now winning the League, does anyone know if we earned some cash as a result of this ?
Surely there must have been clauses in at least a few of the players contracts when we sold them, that meant we were due a little windfall with their League and indeed, Champions League successes.
Be good to have some cash right now, especially with C19, no income and people holding back with ST renewals - due to the uncertainty of the current season, not knowing when we will be allowed back in the stadium next season and of course the continued abysmal home form.
|Changes For Watford Away|
at 01:32 26 Jun 2020
I said on a thread after the Norwich win that I hoped we play against Arsenal like we did in the 2nd half v Norwich. Well that lasted all of 5 mins and a few bits of pressure in the 2nd half.
I also said that we make mistakes and teams wait for us to make them in order to punish us. Cue McCarthy, followed up with a sloppy back pass from PEH and Stephens a little off the pace or maybe a bit unlucky ?
Either way, wholesale changes are required at Watford.
Drop McCarthy - 1st error gifted Arsenal the points and should have done better for the 2nd. Costly errors so give Gunn another run.
Replace Stephens with ? Probably Vestergaard ? Enforced
Replace Valery with KWP as he looked a bit more promising / knows what he is doing.
Replace PEH with Smallbone or Romeu. He is not at the races, doesn't want to be here and is playing so negatively, it is likely that he after us terminating his contract, not selling him for £35m..
Replace Obafemi with Long. Oba had a mare. Rarely touched it and when he did, was let down by his first touch and lack of control. Long likes playing away to Watford, 7 sec goal last season and 2 assists (?) In the 2-2 the season before.
Maybe with these changes, there will even be a place on the bench for Boufal now.
Positivity, more attack minded, forward passing, creativity and urgency, or is Ralph happy that 37 points is enough and the season is over already ?
|Flaw Already With The Fantastic New Ticket System|
at 14:27 24 Jun 2020
Just put in my details to see how much it would cost to renew my and the daughter's season ticket.
At the end of the process, it gives me the total price for both tickets and the option to use my credit note against the purchase, but that is where the fault lies. There is no option to use the credit from my daughter's ST against my purchase, despite the fact that I correctly selected her from the Friends and Family list and I have always purchased her and my STs together in the same transaction for the last 10 years.
Guess it will mean having to call the ticket office - proving that the new system is not as great as they would have you believe !!

|Norwich Player Tests Positive|
at 23:39 13 Jun 2020
So it has been revealed that one of the 2 positive tests in the most recent round of testing is an unnamed player from Norwich.
I doubt it will actually affect our game being played on Friday and the player will now self isolate for a week or 2. However I wonder how it will now affect not only their players who have probably trained with him over the last couple of weeks and been in contact with him, but also our players who will be coming into contact with players whom have potentially been in contact with the infected player.
Not sure who it is, but hopefully for us, it is one of their best players.

Just heard on the radio whilst in the car, that Will Smallbone has singed a 4 year contract with Saints. Hopefully he will push on and really establish himself with the first team squad.
