Saints Set To Pull Off Transfer Coup In France
Saturday, 20th Jun 2015 09:07
Saints are suddenly the destination of choice for Europe's up and coming players judging by the latest player to be linked with the club.
If the Europa League does one thing for Saints this season it is that it has enabled them to be attractive to a certain level of player on the continent, certainly a far higher standard than they have been able to go in for with any serious intent in the past.
The latest of these is Max -Alain Gradel a player who has played in England before for Leicester, Bournemouth & Leeds but has really blossomed since moving to St Etienne in 2011.
Now at 27 and in his prime he is looking to move back to England and this time to the Premier League and Saints are rumoured to be in pole position to sin him.
Described as a player blessed with Ronaldinho dribbling he has now added goals to his game scoring 17 in 31 gases for St Etienne last term.
With two years left on his contract it is believed that he could be bought for around £6 million and with Ronald Koeman looking for a decent wide option to supplement his midfield the Gradel could be the option.

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…

Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.

Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Doncaster 8/1/93 by wessex_exile
With school half-term upon me, and with much to do before leaving early for Crawley on Tuesday night, I’m going to have to post this one a bit early I’m afraid.
Matches of Yesteryear - Bees v U's 31/12/05 by wessex_exile
Well here’s a first, the random match selector has chosen the very next match I was at following Shrewsbury in the FA Cup back in December 2005 – spooky.
