|Danny Boy (Not Ings)|
at 11:29 28 Jun 2021
For those on here with a forces background or interest, may I refer you to a film called 'Danny Boy' that was on BBC2 recently - and is available on catch up or if you search for it on Sky etc.
It is about a soldier (Brian Wood) who was in the battle of Danny Boy (Amarah, Iraq, 2004) who was later accused of war crimes and mistreating of prisoners etc, so tells of his 10 year fight to clear his name.
Quite interesting and based on his book 'Double Crossed'.
I think there are a few on here that would be interested in the book and/or film, so check it out and let me know what you think.
(I know Brian from a few football tours to Germany).

Just heard as he was being subbed that Ralph wants him on loan again next season ?
WTF has he done to suggest he is worth another loan FFS ?
I'd rather give Tella more game time and would even prefer to give Elyounoussi a go :-)
|New Hummel Kit|
at 13:08 19 May 2021
I know it used to be a bit of an old tradition, but I half wondered if we might be parading our new Hummel Kit for the game last night.
Would have been nice to see and perhaps a good opportunity missed in terms of marketing in front of the fans for the first time. Chelsea wore their new kit for the FA Cup final last Saturday, but I suppose they were not changing manufacturers.
I know we have had issues pretty much every season with Under Armour, which perhaps explain why our 7 year deal was cut short, but they have at least managed to produce a few good ones during their tenure.
Let's hope Hummel can surpass some of their retro classics, which I'm pleased to see are on sale in the Saints Store - well, online at least !!

You can tell the season is nearly over. The transfer rumour mill is really starting to pick up now, as agents and bloggers alike, try to generate interest in players. I've never seen us get so many mentions on the BBC Gossip Column !!
Southampton are poised to make a bid for Borussia Dortmund and Denmark midfielder Thomas Delaney, 29.
Southampton are lining up Reims left-back Ghislain Konan, 25, as a replacement for England defender Ryan Bertrand, 31, whose contract expires in the summer. Aston Villa have also been linked with the Ivory Coast defender.
The Saints could also make a move for Lazio's 26-year-old Albania goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha.

Who were the last promoted team to do the double over us in their first season, without conceding a goal and to go on to finish at least 10 points above us ?
We always used to do so well against newly promoted sides, but this season we only took 7 out of a possible 18 !!
I guess we did the double over Sheffield United (again) and Burnley to compensate to an extent, but we really have had some embarrassing defeats to the lower half teams this season. (9 man Newcastle, WBA, etc)
|Leeds United - Home Game|

Has anyone managed to get tickets for this game yet ?
I'm eligible to buy tomorrow morning, so just wondered whether the purchase process was in anyway different from that of a normal game prior to Covid and what safety checks they have / will put in place.

Already much speculation regarding his future at Saints, so just seen this on the BBC Football site......
Roma are set to meet Jannik Vestergaard's representatives as they work on plans to sign the Southampton and Denmark defender, 28, who is also wanted by Tottenham and Juventus.
Like quite a few others (Ings, Lemina, Hoedt etc), I think he has just over a year left on his current deal, so no surprise that these stories are breaking.
Do we want to keep him ? He was poor at the start, had a 5 month purple patch before getting injured and seems to be slowly sliding back to his former self.
Or do we cash out with a year left on his contract, in an attempt to get £15-20m ?
