I think the only manager we could hire who we could be reasonably certain would stick around for 5-10 years would be David Moyes.

And none of us want that!

I'm hoping Koeman is the blend of Moyes and Martinez that we've often mentioned. I certainly feel he will make us solid again and tough to beat. That's the next step.

165 mil sounds like an awful lot of money to spend in a transfer window

if lukaku leaves then we will obviously need a new striker, we also need a new keeper,

The defence is fine imo, there are no weak links there, baines and coleman are the best full backs in the league on their day and jags is our captain and stones our future captain. Mori is an exceptional replacement who is now an Argentine International player.

If we have injuries in defence we can always rely on youth like we did at the end of last season, they played exceptionally well especially in the game against norwich.

The midfield does need to be improved imo, we cannot rely on Barkley to be our playmaker constantly which is why I think maybe bringing tadic / mane from southampton would be a good idea

lennon is a good player but i would not have him over deulefeu or mirallas. with potentially osman, pienaar, gibson and mcgeady leaving in the summer or being loaned out we haven't got a strong backup if injuries hit our midfield. Barry is also getting on these days.

if lukaku leaves we are a bit weak up front with only kone, niasse and tarashaj. I am excited about the prospect of tarashaj though and hope he has a good euro's (if he gets any game time).

so basically i think need a goalkeeper, a creative midfielder, a winger, 2 strikers

that's 5 players with £165.00 mil budget meaning on average each player would cost 33 million . that just seems crazy given that lukaku is our highest transfer signing at 28 mil.

take into account koeman may sign a few squad players to replace the outgoing lukaku, osman, hibbert, pienaar, howard etc.. then you would still be looking at at least 25 mil per player and that's not including the money we recoup from player sales.

--------------New Keeper--------------

Coleman---Stones---Jagielka/Mori-----Baines

Deulofeu----Barkley---McCarthy/Barry----Mirallas

----------New Striker------New Striker---------------

That doesn't justify stooping to the level of one or two of them. We have class.
I am not stooping to any level.......... I  am just stating ....what has been said about us today.I certainly don't have to listen to another members opinion and not voice my own. No offence to you or the original poster........ it was the last comment .... that they had put up that got to me.

This is a proper statement of intent from Moshiri.

Some of us might've wanted Emery, Pellegrini or others, but this was the guy Moshiri wanted from the off, and he seems to have got him. That act alone is out of step with what we've had to put up with for as long as I can remember.

It would've been quite easy to say 'let's take De Boer, he's decent and cheaper'. But Moshiri hasn't done that here.

I do think we're in for a really exciting, positive time as a club.

It's awesome isn't it but I have to admit it's a strange feeling as well.

There's been civic sniping between the two cities for the last few years.
Coupled with the fact the rest of the country still thinks of Liverpool as the place ~Harry Enfield's scousers are from and the fact Southampton as a club feel they have proven themselves as a top 10 side and want some recognition points to them not reacting well to this news.

I went the year before last (the 2-0 abject loss) and spoke to a few of them down there (massive lack of boozers). There's been no rivalry between the clubs as they have been none-entities for a long time. That has led to a liking of each other.
Same with City originally.
But as soon as a team becomes a rival or is considered immediately above you in the tiers you start to find reasons not to like them.
They were starting to feel that towards us 2 or 3 years ago apparently. We hadn't noticded the existed at that point.

Seems we still havent as popping down and just taking their manager seems perfectly obvious to us. Why wouldnt he leave them?
That's the attitude they will be railing against at the minute


that's not including the money we recoup from player sales.
It sort of is.
The current attitude is we have £100m to spend.
The £165m figure is after the sale of Lukaku.
I genuinely dont see anybody else leaving for a significant sum of money.

It does feel like the reason we have waited so long is because Koeman wanted to go on holiday. That's ok. But a little surprising when I thought there were more difficult complications than that.

You'd have to ask Les Reed I believe who deals with Southampton's player recruitment since Koeman was hired.

I'm pretty sure Les Reed is the main person driving transfers at Southampton.

Getting a sporting director to work with Koeman will be crucial.

Can we keep the snide remarks about Southampton and their supporters to a minimum?

I'm sure some of you have legitimate reasons for disliking them but for me, they're one of the few Premier League clubs I have time for. Their rivals vulture their players and/or staff every summer and they keep right on performing. They are a very well run club and I have a lot of respect for that.

It's nice that Everton now have some financial muscle to flex but we don't need to spit on the clubs we buy from. I remember how livid it made me when City supporters started banging on about how they were going to buy whoever they wanted. Let's not be that club.

Let's let our results do the talking.

It's kind of difficult after reading 22 pages of their fan forum.

They really do think so highly of themselves, it's incredible.
