  1. Agreed Michael Gove from 2 weeks ago in a interview with the telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/18/michael-gove-interview-vote-for-democracy-and-hope-vote-leave He is also adamant that he will never be Prime Minister himself. “In order to be prime minister of this country, you need to be an exceptional person. David Cameron is an exceptional person with exceptional talents and he does the job well. “I don’t think I have got that exceptional level of ability required for the job." Even if he felt he could do the job - which he does not - he wouldn't want it because i
  2. Claude Puel confirmed as new Manager at Southampton. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36642502 From what little I have read it looks like a good fit, although I would have preferred someone with experience in the English League..
  3. Candidates for the next Conservative leader and UK Prime Minister. Stephen Crabb Current Secretary for Work & Pensions. Was for Remain Liam Fox Former Defence Secretary resigned in 2011 after a lobbying scandal, Longstanding Leave campaigner Michael Gove Current Lord Chancellor & Secretary of Justice, Was Boris Johnson's "second" as part of Leave campaign. Andrea Leadsom Current Secretary of Energy, supported leave campaign Theresa May Current Home Secretary, Was on the remain side but did not campaign actively an
  4. As a Saints fan I think you are getting a really good player who should fit what Klopp wants very well. He has all the talent required to be successful at a big club but his attitude needs to be right. At times last season he appeared to be giving minimal effort and his performances were poor. This was around the time of the transfer window so it may be that he was trying to force a move in January. i am sure you have a manager in Klopp that can deal with players egos. On a side note we are reported to be signing Claude Puel as our new manager, can any of the French in here let me know
  5. The British people don't actual vote for PM. We elect MPs, The leader of the party with the majority of MPs in parliament then becomes PM. At any point that party can decide to change leader and we get a new PM. This is what is happening now, Cameron is resigning as leader of the Conservative party, the Conservative party will choose a new leader and he/she will become PM. The only way we would get a new election is if the government loses a vote of confidence in parliament, that would trigger a new election where all MPs would be up for re-election. It would take about 20 Conservative MP
  6. The Southampton Exodus continues in talks with Spurs for the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez reportedly for 40+ million.
  7. Shaw, Chambers and Lallana all came through the youth system. Schneiderlin came to us at 18 (2008). The academy has also produced Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott & Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as well as several other less well known players in the last few years, There still about 4 or 5 young players at the club that they have high hopes for. Some of the success of the youth system is geographic, we are the biggest club (outside London) in the South of England so they can draw on quite a big talent pool. They pick up quite a few talented players at 15/16 from the smaller southern clubs. Some of
  8. As a Saints fan, sad to see last years team gutted in this fashion but feared the worse when Pochettino left for Spurs. The only good thing is that we have managed to get good value for the players who have left. We should now have about 100 million to spend. The board said that all money from transfers would be available to the manager, but I won't believe that until I have seen it spent. There have been rumours ever since Markus Liebherr died that the family wanted to sell the club, but they seemed to die down a bit last year as Katharina become more visibly involved after the ousting of
  9. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27579306 Spurs appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss. As a Southampton fan I am gutted to see him go, it was bad enough that we are likely to lose Lallana & Shaw over the summer but I was expecting that. To lose the manager as well is a real blow and puts a real feeling of uncertainty around the club after the great season that we had.
