‘Last player I’d want’ – Southampton fans surprisingly satisfied despite recent transfer setback

Southampton supporters have been slightly more upbeat in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side produced a much-improved display to draw 1-1 at home to Champions League-chasing Tottenham on Sunday.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s men have endured a miserable run of form of late in failing to win any of their preceding ten Premier League matches, in which time they picked up just five points out of a possible 30 to slip into the relegation zone. And although they were unable to end that winless run, the Saints produced a decent display in drawing with Spurs last weekend, with Davinson Sanchez’s own goal giving the hosts an early lead only for Harry Kane to equalise three minutes later.

Subsequently, there have been some satisfied Southampton fans in the Tavern in recent times, although many are sincerely hoping that their team will bolster their ranks between now and January 31 in a bid to pull clear of the bottom three.

However, one man who won’t be on his way to St Mary’s is Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge, as the Reds have reportedly blocked a move from the Saints to take the 28-year-old on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

And with the South Coast outfit evidently in need of attacking reinforcements, having managed just 24 goals in 24 Premier League games this term, this is likely to come as blow to manager Pellegrino, yet that view has not been shared by several Southampton fans on Twitter…

Southampton fans… what do you think? Let us know!
