Who Will Be The Victor ? Wanyama !
Monday, 24th Jun 2013 17:20
If media reports are to be believed Saints are still in the hunt for Victor Wanyama from Scottish champions Celtic.
Earlier today it was reported that Saints were losing out in their bid to sign Victor Wanyama from Celtic and that although a bid had been accepted by Celtic, reportably anywhere between £10 - 12 million, the deal had broken down due to personal terms being unable to be agreed between Saints and the player.
That seemed to pave the way for Cardiff City who were alledgedly tempting the 21 year old kenyan with a more money than Saints, however news stories thi afternoon are saying that the deal is not yet dead and that Wanyama's representatives are still in talks with Saints.
From a Saints point of view of course its good to be linked with a player rated as highly as Wanyama, however I would say its not a deal that we would be desperate to do in the fact that we have adequate cover in the central midfield defensive role that the Kenyan plays, hopefully that should ensure that we arent held to ransom over terms, from a playing point of view it would be nice to strengthen, especially with a player who is versatile as Wanyama can also play in the centre of defence, but its not essential.

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.

Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Doncaster 8/1/93 by wessex_exile
With school half-term upon me, and with much to do before leaving early for Crawley on Tuesday night, I’m going to have to post this one a bit early I’m afraid.
Matches of Yesteryear - Bees v U's 31/12/05 by wessex_exile
Well here’s a first, the random match selector has chosen the very next match I was at following Shrewsbury in the FA Cup back in December 2005 – spooky.
