Saints' record signings
at 12:27 3 Jun 2022

I was looking at this list of Saints' 10 most expensive signings:

https://www.hampshirelive.news/sport/football/football-news/osvaldo-boufal-lemin

The only real successes in there are Ings & maybe Adams. Some have been total disasters. Is it just poor recruitment on our part or are buys in that price range (15-20 million) inherently risky? To be worth that much they've obviously got something about them but maybe there's a reason, like attitude problems, why we've been able to get them.

Seeing we're likely to be shopping in that market again, I hope we make a better fist of it. We can't afford many more flops.

KWP for England
at 22:14 26 Mar 2022

What did we think of his 62 mins on the pitch? Had a big hand in the first goal with an interception but a bit disappointed that he didn't take players on more often seeing he was playing as an out-and-out wing back.

Solid enough though & hopefully did enough to get another chance.

FIA Ukraine
at 21:26 1 Mar 2022

What a surprise that FIA aren't toeing the line & banning Russian drivers - as long as they compete as “neutrals”. No doubt it's all down to the money in F1. Neutral or not, I'm sure a lot of Russians will associate with Mazepin. The Haas team also happens to be sponsored by Mazepin's father's company.

I know you can't blame all Russians for Putin's insanity but these aren't normal times and sport should show a united front. (Same goes for Winter paralympics.)

Martinelli sending off
at 22:05 10 Feb 2022

Very unusual sending off in the Wolves vs Arsenal game tonight. Martinelli tried to stop a Wolves player taking a throw-in & then immediately chopped down the guy who received the ball. He was given 2 yellows at the same time. They could only find a handful of times it's happened in World football.

Probably 2 good results for Saints.

Inevitable I guess, but still a bit sad:



Always came across as a genuine & intelligent guy. Hopefully he'll go on to achieve something in another career.

Big result for Saints!
at 23:07 19 Dec 2021

(Women, that is.)

I know it's not everybody's cup of tea but Oxford inflicted a first defeat of the season on table-topping Ipswich. If Saints win their 2 games in hand they'll be back at the top.

Always looked like it would come down to Ipswich v Saints on the last day of the season.

Salisu not going to AFCON

Great news if it's true. He's not the finished article but I'd fear for Saints if we lost him for up to 6 games.

I think we can spare Djenepo.

That's if it all goes ahead...

In total contrast to the thread about Harry Redknapp, respect to Graham Potter:

Can't imagine it's happened very often that a manager has faced the same opposition in consecutive fixtures in charge of different teams.

Hopefully the same result.

Stupid offside law
at 22:12 10 Oct 2021

Don't know if anybody watched France's Nations League win, but the law that allowed the winning goal is plain stupid.

Hernandez played a ball through to Mbappe who scored but was clearly in an offside position. Garcia had tried to cut out the through ball & got the faintest of touches. Because he was deemed to have deliberately played the ball, the goal stood.

I don't think anybody who watched the game would think that shouldn't count as offside. It's bad enough having rubbish referees without having rubbish laws too.

Don't know who's into cricket, but if you haven't got Sky & want to watch Hampshire in the T20 finals, it's on at:

Doubtless we'll lose in the semis as usual.

KWP?
at 20:42 22 Aug 2021

Early days yet but with the new wonderkid rapidly establishing himself at right back, what do we do with KWP? He looked OK when he came on today but is substitute right-back/left-back his new role? It would be interesting to see if he & Livramento could both play down the right (option for Weds?) but what would we do with Armstrong S – assuming he's staying?

I think KWP's too good to have him sitting on our bench. Could we afford to sell him & rely on Valery/Djenepo? Although if Livramento lives up to all the hype, maybe he'll move on after this season anyway which will solve the problem.

Just been watching his Japan side lose to Spain in the Olympics semi-final. He had a penalty decision against him overturned by VAR but they lost in extra time anyway. It would be good to see the guy end up with a bronze (vs. Mexico).

Not exclusive to England, and I'm sure the majority of supporters behave themselves, but why do we still seem to produce more than our share? Booing national anthems & opponent possession is bad enough.

This was after an England victory. I genuinely dread to think what will happen on Sunday if Italy win.

Ex-Saints at Euros

Watching Stekelenburg playing for The Netherlands tonight set me wondering about our other ex-players at the Euros. Apart from Alderweireld, Bale, Fonte, Hojbjerg, Lovren, Shaw & Ben White (youth) are there any more? I feel like I'm missing somebody obvious...
