My favourite bit…

“Wesley has proven his talent through his performances for Lazio, as well as the Netherlands, and we believe he can develop even further here at Southampton, alongside his international teammate Virgil van Dijk , as well as the likes of Jack Stephens, Maya Yoshida, Jan Bednarek and Florin Gardos."

I think that is rather deliberate! Ha

No mention,of Cedric or Bert Rand…uh oh!

Never seen this guy kick a football but his name sounds like a quality centre half and I was a woman I would sleep with him on the first date :lou_sunglasses:

It’s all part of the Pellegrino plan to turn us into an effective long ball team in the Allardyce style.

Seriously though, seems he can do a big deal of what Clasie was brought into do, on the killer ball front at least. Bye bye Jordi?

I think you must be a bit confused. Claise has already been told he can go. Besides which, this bloke coming in is a CB - why would his arrival have any bearing on the future of a CM?

Ummm, they’re all Centre Backs, Hoedt is a Centre Back

Cedric and Bert Rand are Right and Left Backs

I notice that Matt Targett was not mentioned. He’s as good as gone then.

Perhaps I’m confused. Perhaps you are. I did qualify my comments as the killer ball front.

Clasie’s perceived YouTube quality in that department was what I was referring to.

I did not know about Clasie definitely going, so cheers.

Has Tigger run her ‘rule’ over him yet?

Not sure if attempt at humour.

Not sure if attempt at humour but I didnt go to the fringe this year? Maybe you thinking of another poster?
