    I hate people moaning, particularly at the ground, but in fairness he was pretty dreadful. The turnaround is the greatest reinvention since Lucozade in the early 90s.

    Yeah no point trying to rewrite history and pretend the criticism was unjust and it was “negative boo boys” who thought he was ****. He was ****ing useless for the first 2 years, fair play he has turned it around this season but if we were to get a big offer I wouldn’t be overly sad to see him go.

    We all know we need to sell to buy, and it’s been said however many times on here “what could Ralph do if he was backed with money”. The way that happens atm is by selling. Ings and Vestergaard would be the two you would think are in prime position to be sold for decent fees this summer. Give the money to Ralph and see what he can do

    We’ll need to keep one eye open for rival bids.

    Wish he'd stop misquoting Ralph. Ralph meant it would be a 'hot summer' for transfers in general. He wasn't saying it would be a 'hot summer' for Saints particularly.

    I don’t mind if he can flip one or two into the box on the counter attack

    I would not be sad to see Big Jan leave. It would be preferable to losing either JWP or Armstrong who I think are more likely to attract attention from other clubs. I am convinced that Ings will be off and am resigned to that. Vestergaard has been out most improved player in 2020/21 but lets not forget that our defence has not been great since Christmas. I would quite like the "old" Vestergaard to play for Spurs, though!

    If Ings leaves, please may we buy Alexander Isak from Sociedad?

    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. (Tuttomercatoweb - in Italian)

    Package deal: they get Vestergaard and pay for a cross-town taxi for Hoedt. What they do after that point is entirely their business.

    Not even sure I'd wish that on Pompey. The further away he is from us the better for me.

    Yeah it has been obvious for a while that Bertrand was leaving on a free at the end of the season. Hard to know if it is the right decision without knowing how much we have to spend etc.

    Bertrand isn’t the player he was and presumably commands one of the larger wages in the squad, but he is still one of our better players and leaves us with no left back in the squad

    I'd be all for it... if we actually had a proper LB in the squad.

    We don't, and I'm not keen on Salisu playing there.

    Maybe give Will Ferry a chance, but again, he isn't a natural LB (but moreso than Salisu anyway)
