Southampton fans here in the Tavern are delighted with how their side has performed recently, but there are still a number of changes that need to be made over the course of the summer.
Indeed, Mark Hughes has established himself as a fan favourite during his time at St Mary’s, as he was faced with an almost impossible task when he took over back in March. And, it doesn’t look as if his hard work will stop here, as the summer transfer window will be of huge importance to the club with plenty of improvements to be made.
So, having flirted with the possibility of relegation for large parts of the campaign, perhaps Mark Hughes will look to ring in the changes over the course of the summer months, as a number of the club’s underperforming players could be heading for the exits.
With that in mind, these TWO Southampton players are to blame for the club’s awful season…
Guido Carrillo became the club’s record signing in the January transfer window, as they looked to the Argentinian for goals and assurance during the second half of the season. However, he wasn’t able to provide this, as the former AS Monaco striker is still waiting for his first goal on the south coast and could even depart in the summer.
Sadly, the 26-year-old looks to be a waste of money and will go down as arguably one of the worst players in the club’s history if he doesn’t start to improve in the near future.
Fraser Forster established himself as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper during the first half of the season, but he soon lost his place to Alex McCarthy as a number of mistakes proved to be his downfall.
A move to the Championship may even be on the cards for the 30-year-old as he has been punching well above his weight in the Premier League.
So, with the season now over it looks as if he may be forced to move to another club in the summer transfer window, as regular minutes in the starting lineup will be a rarity after struggling to ensure consistency.
