Saints Interested In Towering Defender
Friday, 6th Mar 2020 11:29
Saints are being linked with a "towering" defender from the Championship, would it be a good or bad move ?
The man in question is Millwall defender Jake Cooper who according to my metres to feet conversion chart stands at almost 6ft 5 inches.
He started at Reading where he made 42 first team appearances in the Championship before going out on loan to Millwall in January 2017, in the summer of that year at 22 Reading clearly felt he had not made the breakthrough and he joined the South London club on a permanent deal in the summer of the same year.
Since then he has been a mainstay of their defence having made 117(3)League appearances to add to his 17 on loan.
The question is though can he make the jump from the Championship to the Premier League, for every player that can there are two that don't.
One thing he would be though is a bargain, his contract expires in the summer so he would at 25 presumably be available on a free, so from this perspective he could be a chance worth taking.
The reality though is that this is little more than his agent trying to generate interest from clubs ready for the summer.

Here we are again, back in the (now) much-maligned EFL Trophy and a home tie against West Ham United U21s, and I think probably our last chance to stay in the competition? Robbie’s most recent rallying cry has been to “buy, buy, buy” when it comes to iFollow streams, and with the likelihood of supporters getting to matches receding, making streaming probably our only viable revenue stream, who can blame him. As an exile, I was never expecting I’d have many opportunities to see the U’s in the flesh this season, so he’s rather preaching to the converted as far as I’m concerned, but I do like the loyalty scheme he’s put together.
Away days by Andyconky
Many pounds have been spent and many train tracks have been travelled but who doesn't love an away day. Doesn't matter if its Chester or Chelsea or Lincoln or Liverpool, it's all good fun with a sense of adventure of what may happen.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?
