Saints Price Targett To Stay
Tuesday, 31st Jul 2018 11:20
According to the London based media Saints have named their price to Fulham for Matt Targett and it seems to aim to put them off.
According to the Evening Standard in London Saints have named their price to Fulham for Matt Targett, it seems that at least £15 million will be needed to prise him away from St Mary's.
in normal circumstances Targett could perhaps expect to be a permanent fixture already in the Saints team, but we seem to have a knack of either producing or buying quality left backs and at the moment Targett has his way blocked by perhaps the best English left back in the Premier League in Ryan Bertrand.
Ideally we would perhaps keep Bertrand as first choice for another year and then move him on for Targett to take over, but Targett will turn 23 in just over a month and knows he needs to be playing regularly at the highest level now.
Mark Hughes naturally wants to keep & play his best players and that means Bertrand, Saints though are in no hurry to sell and won't do so unless they get top dollar, the£15 million price tag seems set to put Fulham off, but if they are willing to pay that sort of money then Saints will see it as good business in the short term, but perhaps not in the long.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
