  • Summer Transfers 2024

    Imagine if we actually sign a striker and he scores lots of goals for us and is here for a good few years
  • Summer Transfers 2024

    Thats why it's beneficial for him to stay.
    He'd get 1 year with us and 2 at Southampton. If he goes now he's only guaranteed 2 years at Southampton. He'd have to find c.£6.5m in his third year somewhere. If he gets 3 years at Southampton he gets an additional £3.64m wages but loses the £1m 'free transfer' sign on bonus, so he's still £4m down.

    Why would Southampton pay us to supplement his wages after the move?

    But he has made them far too late, we nearly ran out of time against Slovakia, Switzerland took us to penalties.
    So… he didn’t do it too late then…?
    He got out of jail with a moment of brilliance from Bellingham in the 92nd minute after bringing Tony on 2 minutes previously. If that is tactical brilliance and grasping the idea of using subs to change games then he is a genius. I personally think he got bailed out by an exceptional player. It is possible the majority of fans and virtually all the pundits are wrong and Gareth is right but I doubt it. Winning despite him in my book rather than because of him.
    But you see that objectively it’s not “too late” if the desired outcome happened, right? If we had run out of time to score, then yeah sure. But we didn’t. Because it wasn’t too late.

    Call him wrong all you want. 3 semi finals and 2 finals in 4 tournaments. If you (the royal you) want to be focused on whether the manager is good rather than enjoying the fact we’re in a final then have fun with that.
    Of course I enjoy the fact we are in the final, I am delighted about it and despite my criticism of Southgate am also delighted for him as he comes across a thoroughly good human being and one of the guys you want to see win in life.

    It's not just an empty debate regard whether the manager is good as it's within the context of whether we are playing to our best as we will need to sooner or later to win the matches to win the tournament. You seem to take the view that the results so far indicate he is doing great, and as such good at this management stuff. My view is that he is being fortunate to get those results and fortune runs out over time, and so I would like to see changes made to a set up that allows us to play as I believe we can before luck runs out. We have had a last minute piece of brilliance, a penalty save and a penalty given that most would agree should never have, I hope we have something like that in the final and we win, but I'd rather we field our best side so far and take the game to Spain, in my view our best side so far is only fielded after he makes substitutions and my fear is Spain may be out of sight before that happens and we start hitting back.

    So we got a good goal, good disallowed goal and dubious penalty to their good goal. I’d say we deserved the win.
