  1. Today
  2. Three players un valed to fans. Hello everyone and welcome to this press conference today we are at ST Mary's stadium where our three new signings will speak for the first time since there arrival at the club. The actual processing of the deals has yet to be completed but everything has been put threw and the deals are fully confirmed. The three players as you know are Stephen Calka, Dan Darbyshire and Karlan Grant. Each player will have a seperate slot where they will all take time to answer questions. The three players have all been introduced to the players and have all had a tour of the ground and fasilities here. We can safely say they were all impressed with what they saw and can't wait for the chance to come here. Firstly however we're going to here from Manager Ian McNamara and Chairman Ralph Krueger who are going to talk about the rolls and impact they see these three lads having on the team going forward. Over to Mr Krueger. "Mr Krueger Karlan Grant cost you 60,000,000 pounds, what made you pay that amount of money for an un proven player conciddoring that Mr McNamara has only been in post for a short time?" "Firstly I want to say I trust Ian 100 percent and know he knows what he's doing. He's an experienced manager and knows how to develop young players. We bid a high price because we see high Potential in Karlan and he's young and English which is another reason we decided to take him. Yes it's a high price tag but we feel that this club will benifit highly from paying this amount of money for a player who we believe is going to turn into a top player for this club. Karlan has shown he's a goalscorer and has some very good qualities. He's a young man with huge ambition and we're signing that." "Mr Krueger, Dan Darbyshire another un proven player yet you say letting Vergal go who's a vital player for you go was the write thing to do to sign a player with potential and an average defender lower in skil than Vergal. What is your thinking in allowing Ian to do this?" "Well quite frankly Vergal has been unhappy here for a long time and has been asking for a move for a long time. I do not want players playing for this club who don't want to play for us. Stephen jumped at the chance as did dan and both expressed there delight early on in negotiations wanting this deal to go ahead. We feel that if a player does not want to be somewhere trying to keep them is not worth it and it is best to just allow them to leave." "Mr McNamara can you tell us your reasoning for these three signings? Your putting your faith in four young strikers the oldest only being 23 years old?" "Well these players have good qualities, Sam specially has been waiting for a chance to play first team football here for a while after quite a few loan spells, he's a player I have followed for a long time now and although he's going to be the most experienced striker age wise he's ready to take that mantal on and finally ready to play for our first team. The other three Richalason Darbyshire and Grant are young and hungry and I can see a lot of goals in our team." "Mr McNamara do you feel you'll get promoted in your first season and do you think these players can help towards this?" "It's my first season here, nobody knows what is going to happen yet, all I can say is that we'll be doing our upmost to make sure that we do the best we can. I need time to bring my own ideas across to the players and make the signings I want to make. This first season for me is very much getting use to the squad learning who makes the grade and who does not and then seeing where we go from there. Promotion is a great aim to go for but until we see how the team jells I am not willing to commit to that aim and put unnecessary pressure on the players or coaching staff. Let's first see how things go at the start then we can look at the future. Firstly the players need time to get to know me and my style and I need time to get to know them plus our new signings also. I have only been in the job a few days so I would respectfully ask that you give me a chance to really work out what I have and what I need."

  4. Southampton announce three new signings. Southampton can today announce three new signings as they were successful in obtaining there target from the recent auction making the players coming in a total of three so far. The three signings can now be affisially announced as all the paperwork has now gone threw and they will soon be arriving at the club. The three signings are as follows. From QPR in the deal which involved Vergal going the other way come in experienced defender Stephen Calka and Young talented 21 year old Dan Darbyshire. Both are good players and are expected to be great players for the club. Stephen is an experienced defender and Dan is young and hungry. We're glad to do this deal as Vergal was clearly unhappy at the club and praise is given to the manager and is team for sorting the problem out. McNamara said the following about the deal when he spoke to Sky sports news earlier today. "I am happy with this deal, Stephen and Dan are both good players and Dan being young is what we wanted in our striking options. Stephen is an experienced defender at this level and is a solid center back. We're hoping that both players settle quickly as we're excited about the future that these two players have. Both hav signed 4 year deals at the club as we were keen to commit them to long term contracts. Both are expected to feature a lot for the team this season although Dan will probably find himself 4th choice as we have four very good and talented strikers here at the moment and we expect them all to get chance." The third signing is from the auction, Southampton are pleased to announce the signing of 21 year old striker Karlan Grant from Hiddisfield town for 60 million pounds. People will question the price tag I am sure but McNamara has proven that he knows what he's doing so far so it's suspected that people will give him a chance to prove the investmant is worth while. McNamara said the following. "Karlan is a good young player who has proven that he's a goal scorer he'll give our young strike force much needed compatition for places and we're looking forward to his arrival at our club. He'll need to bide his time although with his price tag and age if he shows promis early on in training he could start the season. It's going to be great compitition for places up front and we're hoping that all four will make my choices hard."

  12. New signings set to be announced later today. Southampton football club confirmed today that they have made two new signings, there is still paper work to finish but the deals are confirmed and will go threw. The two signings and the manager will be expected at a press confrance either later today or early tomorrow morning. There is still some paper work left to be completed but the signings are over the line. Currently we can confirm that it will be a defender and a striker and Vergal Vandijk after expressing the wish for a move will be the player making way for these two new boys. We're looking forward to seeing how they fit when they arrive and it will help the plans for the club moving forward. Ralph Krueger chairman of Southampton said the following. "In the two days he's been in the job Ian has been working hard looking at where improvements might be needed. We're really impressed with his attitude since arriving because if he gains an auction signing that he's targeted this will have enabled us to have four good young strikers plus the lads who are being developed in the youth team, this means it's a position we won't need to strengthen for years to come. Ian has been quick and well organised in order to achieve this and that's one position that he will have then improved. He's proven that he's willing to think out of the box and although he's let a very good player go in Vergal it's clear that Vergal has been unhappy at the club for a while now. Ian saw this streight away and when he approached us about this we were able to inform him about the offer for the swap deal. We're impressed with the start Ian has made and with the improvement to sam coming up this will give us an exciting young strike force that could potentially be one of the best in seasons to come. Also it'll mean that any strikers who don't make the grade can go because there'll be a young crop developing. Ian has proven that he's willing to do what ever it takes to get what is needed. We'll be publishing a list of players for the market later today as I am due to have a meeting with Ian about this. Ian has shown fantastic commitment since taking this job and we're excited to see how this squad develops over the next few weeks. His attention to detail has been second to none and we're looking forward to seeing goals at St mary's next season."
