Southampton Announce Triple Transfer

Southampton have unveiled the three signings of Shwan Jalal (Goalkeeper from Bournemouth) for £95k, Davide Petrucci (Attacking Midfielder from Manchester United) on a free transfer and Sven Nieuwpoort (Right Back from Ajax) for £1.5k. The latter two seem to be hot prospects who have a bright future while Shwan Jalal is most expectantly to be a backup for Kelvin Davis.

Southampton Extend Unbeaten Run To Seven Games

Southampton drew for the fifth time in succession as they couldn't beat Bristol City at St Mary's Stadium after the game finished 1-1. Both Sven Nieuwpoort and Davide Petrucci started their first games in a Southampton shirt but Shwan Jalal was only on the bench as an unused substitute. Jason Puncheon, who has just returned from a loan spell at Crystal Palace, scored his first goal for Southampton this season thanks to a knock down from Jordan Rhodes but Albert Adomah scored a header in the 77th minute to make sure mid-table City drew with 2nd Southampton.

Looks great so far, it seems that Jordan Rhodes has served you well so far. Well done. Having lived down there for 7 years, I developed a liking for the Saints and I hope you go up- both on the game and in real life. From a Leeds fan.
Jordan Rhodes is a great signing, in my save Wolves bought him at start of 2nd season from Huddersfield for 11m!! He is now a proven premiership goalscorer!!

Lambert Gets Hat-Trick As Watford Well Beaten

Rickie Lambert got another hat-trick as Southampton beat Watford 3-1. Lambert got the party started when he scored after two minutes and then doubled the the lead just after half time. Heidar Helguson then scored a penalty after Dan Harding handled in the box but Lambert got his third in the 86th minute to secure a win for Southampton.

Southampton Edge Past Blackpool

Southampton scored late on to deny Blackpool a draw at St Mary's Stadium. Jordan Rhodes put Southampton ahead after 31 minutes but Gary Taylor-Fletcher equalised six minutes later. But young CB Craig Dawson scored the winner in the 86th minute to help Southampton maintain their unbeaten run. The Saints have still only lost one game this season in which the Southampton fans will be disappointed if their team don't get promoted.
