Saints Alive Despite Death Knells...

An awful lot of cash has been thrown in Southampton's direction for a collection of players with itchy feet who took them into mid-table. This is not a crisis; it's excellent business...

Good point by Saint Sam. Lets stay calm, we've sold old news in most cases and good riddance to any more who are for the cause. anyone who watches saints youth play knows what's on the horizon.

Bit depressing that finishing above 8th is essentially impossible though

Indeed.

Some sense & perspective there, sadly missing form many of my fellow Saints fans, thank you F365.

It could work out if the money's invested well, but you can see why just surviving in the Premier League isn't much of an ambition for the club's fans, or for its players. Of course Schneiderlin is furious that he's being kept in a gutted team, when so many players have been allowed to leave. I don't think I remember Football365 being so strongly in favour of one point of view (one anonymous talker - a pretty standard thing in football - was 'a coward'), except maybe against the tabloids pro-Harry Redknapp stance (and there I'm more in sympathy with you.)

Agreed, they are selling good players for damn good money, but I think they will find more than adequate replacements. I hope Southampton don't go down, there are other slightly more reprehensible teams around them. They do need to strengthen mind, otherwise Ronald Koeman could be the oldest player manager the Premier League has seen and Le Tissier the oldest striker. Southampton meets Space Cowboys.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....

alf of our players have the physical presence of a 14 year old girl. I don't know why people are always shocked that they're injured.
