As per normal saints keep quiet on players they are interested in,let's get some excitement in the season to come,bet normal guys linked Swanson etc and will buy players like coulson quality

Think we need to be quiet. Any noise and another team will come sniffing with higher wages.  Any target needs to be convinced  by the manager and the club, and take the wage offerred. However players simply play for cash these days, and if we only offer 1 year deals then not so attractive.

Usual saints get your hopes up at the end if the season about the signings we need and then nothing happens, wright will come out one week and say need goalie striker etc then week after say not happening go with what we have. I thought with a lot of the bigger earners moving they would have a bit more to offer, maybe they will but not very inspiring at the moment.

Not fussed by Williams, there was never much end product and not a patch on Swanson, need a decent centre mid, pacy winger, striker, goalie and still need a good dominant centre half.

I'd like to think that Tommy and SB are going to pull a couple of rabbits out of the hat, and we will be surprised at the quality of the signings, but then I wake up and smell the coffee.

 

Dude we might end up with actual rabbits at this rate

I agree, needed a bit of work but think he could have turned into a quality player at this level, MOH had no real end product in his early days here too and managed develop him in to a decent player

Been rumoured for over a week and now reported as being "completed in the next 48 hours". 

Two huge blows in the hunt for a winger in two days. 

Hope we've someone else lined up.

I don't really get this obsession with re-signing former players..

Media policy is poor from saints, no updates on when players returning,how the pitch etc is going,looked at some second division websites etc and look more appealing etc,

Have no issues with resigning players had hoped Williams might return looked okay last season, saints need a spark game changer a Templeton, Swanson player also someone of midge's quality to hold on to the ball as midge and Jody Morris did,

Is Paul sheeerin free LAUGH OUT LOUD

Saints  never  made an offer to Williams.. Chairman still on holiday and not back till Monday when he will oversee the signing of ….. No-one of any note..  Look out for a John Suttonesque signing though because  we always end up making at least one..

I’m pretty sure the chairman will be  capable of arranging deals from his holiday. 

I run my own business and I’m off on holiday next week. Phone and laptop are coming in my hand luggage.

Correct Pat but it does not fit in with some posters on here who keep moaning about the Chairman.

Perhaps they would prefer a "Marr"  or a "White" type chairman!!

Sutton ultimately didn't work out but I can't remember too many complaints when we did get him. Quite the opposite. It was looked on as a good move at the time and I'm sure we beat Killie and another club for him.

It was a joke based on his  previous comments regarding how he did business..  Sorry it went over your head..  The bit about signing  horses ( Sutton, Johnstone etc) was not though.  We always sign a horse last minute and this season will be no different

  No but I would like a chairman who backs our manager a bit more  and   is not tighter than tight can be ALL the time.. And before you start , I am not talking  spending money we do not have, just spending some of the money we DO have..
