It looks like a Dutch virus is spreading, after Clarence Seedorf who was fired
after a half-season by AC Milan Ronald Koeman is going to leave 'The Saints"
as soon as possible. The chairman said they needed someone to set things up
and after that they needed someone who can fit better for southampton. It looks
like they're going to sign the unknown Dutch-man Laurens who only
managed some youth teams of local clubs. The chairman said they wanted an
unknown young manager with a lot of potential to lead the squad. It also looks
like the brother of Ronald Koeman,Erwin Koeman, is also going to leave
"The Saints"

Southampton signed Ronald de Boer as trainer today, the twin brother of Ajax
manager Frank de Boer who won both the champions league in 1995 is going to
join Laurens in their challenge to go to the Europa League with
I'm loving those graphics man really brilliant!! Frank the man for saints?

"The Saints" signed Joël Veltman today. The 22 year old Dutch defender of
Ajax is going to join Southampton. Southampton bought him for 4.2 million
euro's (5 million pounds) and Southampton payes "De Godenzonen"3 million
euro's (2.1 million pounds) extra if he has played 20 matches. The defender from Ijmuiden played with the Dutch national team in Brazil. Dutch manager Louis van Gaal chose one time for Veltman.

I'm going to choose for a Frank de Boer/Johan Cruijff philosophy. Frank de Boer introduced it at Ajax and they won te Eredivisie 4 times in a row. It's a little bit like Tiki-Taka but it's more slow. I'm first going to play with this tactic and if it doesn't work I'm going for the Dutch tactic they used in Brazil last year

Laurens seems to love Dutch players. Today he announced that
Southampton signed Jeffrey Bruma. Southampton paid PSV 4.6 million euro's
(3.3 million pounds)
he signed his third Dutch player this year and some news papers are saying that
some scouts of Southampton are watching games
of Jong Ajax. Some people say wants to sign Donny "Maradonny' van de Beek
. This message is not confirmed though

Tottenham Hotspur signed Nathan Clyne for 29.8 million Euro's (21 million
pounds) Manager of Southampton Laurens confirmed it today. Nathan Clyne
plays since 2012 for "The Saints". He played 83 games and scored 3 times.
The fans are not very happy, Nathan Clyne was one of the biggest talents
of Southampton

Southampton lost again one of their best players, after losing Nathan Clyne
Southampton lost Morgan Schneiderlin. Arsenal paid "The Saints" 25 million
euro's (18 million pounds). Schneiderlin plays since 2008 at Southampton.
He has played over 200 matches for "The Saints". Some news papers are saying
that Laurens wants to sign Mephis Depay as replacement

the fourth Dutch player who joins Southampton this year. After Jordy Clasie, Joël
Veltman and Jeffrey Bruma Laurens signed Dutch wonderkid Memphis Depay.
Laurens was very happy to annouce that they have signed Depay.
Southampton pays PSV Eindhoven 31 million euro's (22 million pounds). The
Dutch wonderkid from Moordrecht has played 11 games for the Dutch national
team. He made on the World Cup in 2014 2 goals.
great graphics and excellent signings!
Good luck, liking the graphics so far!

(Also I think Schneiderlin's name is Morgan not Arnold :P)
