One In ! One To Go !

Saints have brought in Oriel Romeu from Chelsea on a permanent deal and now need only a central defender to complete Ronald Koeman's perfect squad.
As was rumoured for most of Tuesday it has now been announced that Oriol Romeu is now a Saints player in a deal that has cost Saints around £4-5 million according to whay report you read, this now brings the Saints midfield up to the strength it was last summer with three players who can hold the centre of midfield with contrasting skills from all of them.
It now only leaves the signing of a centre back to give what Ronald Koeman described last week as his "perfect squad" of course the Saints manager will always be in the market for a quality addition at the right price, but when he has brought in a quality central defender he will feel that he is stronger as a squad both in terms of quality and numbers.
Whether that central defender will be Virgil Van Dijk is still open to debate, although rumours persist that Van Dijk has already agreed terms and undergone a medical at St Mary's, the one worry is that Celtic will not let him go until they know their Champions League fate and that will be at least a fortnight.

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
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.
