    Yoshida, Bertrand and Austin to stay out of those I hope. I'm trying to think of a Top 6 team that needs a LB. Maybe Everton, unless they go for Cresswell as reported. Don't see us selling all 4 of our ST somehow.

    You really think we will replace our entire strike force?

    Extremely unlikely. The rest I agree with, Yoshida i would have thought is a a certainty to stay but recent rumours suggest otherwise!

    I would be happy with Delph being part of the deal with City for Bertrand tbh

    I can maybe see Austin staying about it. Our strike force and their support has been **** for two seasons now

    I think we have some great back up and squad players.

    We just need a couple of players who will improve our starting eleven!

    You don’t really want to many players leaving and joining as it will unsettle the team.

    Davis is a weird one, seems as though his body is giving up, but even as club captain we've not heard a word from him for a long time. He will go I think.

    How long is left on Davis' contract? Can't see anyone giving us any/much money for him so might just be a mutual thing to let him go. Back to Rangers maybe, I know he has a lot of time for them.

    I think a lot of who we'll sell and replace depends on who we actually get offers for. I'm not sure who would bid for and be able to afford the wages of a lot of the players being mentioned. I expect Bertrand and Boufal to go. players like Gabbi and Cedric may well get offers. but there's a lot I'm not sure who would buy.

    He's just had his worst season in a Saints shirt ever, can't imagine he'll be that bad again if he stays, but won't be suprised if he has played his last game either.

    Unfortunately, no. It would be awesome if we could, though. If we could somehow do a package deal of 25m for Redmond, Long, Austin, Carrillo, and Gabbiadini I would do it:

    Why's everyone so quick in wanting to sell all of our attacking players, especially ones that are good enough to be in the squad i.e. Austin and Redmond. We need additions to our starting XI, not a rework of the whole squad.

    Austin can’t stay healthy enough to stay in the starting eleven and Redmond doesn’t deserve it.

    Out of that group, I would not want to lose Austin or Gabbiadini. But if it meant getting Carrillo, Redmond, and Long out the door so we could have 25m and a clean start...

    How much will a group of four PL quality strikers cost these days?....£80m+...can't see them spending that in the Summer.

    Why do we need four? I’ll be happy with one.

    I've got a different take on this. Our team has been crap for the majority of two years. We need to get rid or demote half of it and replace with better and more commited individuals. We cannot get any more unsettled than staying up on GD. Rebuild from the foundations up or commit to championship footy.

    What if he is out injured for any length of time?

    You need at least four in a squad of 25

    Because we cannot score goals? Austin is good for a half season so I'd keep him around for that alone. I'm not football expert but Redmond doesnt seem to do the things we need from a player in that position well enough. If this season doesn't scream out for a complete re-work of the squad then presumably only relegation would.

    What happens if you have only one PL quality striker and he gets injured? We just saw what happens. You get the Southampton Saints 2017-18 football season.

    But you said you're happy with only one.
