Pochetinno Sacked - Legend Hired

After a very short spell at the Southampton, the Saints board have sacked Mauricio Pochetinno in favour of a club legend. Mathew Le Tissier is the man to take the Southampton Hot-seat. Le Tissier was a brilliant performer in his 16 years with the club making 443 appearances including 161 goals. The fans are said to be ecstatic with the appointment and can't wait for him to succeed.

The Challenge

As Southampton is known for its amazing youth set-up and has had quality players come through the ranks such as Gareth Bale, the challenge will be wholly youth related.
No signings above the age of 17 will be allowed.
No players above the age of 30 will be played and have to be transfer listed or released.
A minimum of 5 youth players should be in the first team squad at all times.

The Kits

Inspired by the challenge of youth, bright colours, childish design and Toys R Us sponsorship.

Good luck with this, you're gonna need it :P I take it we will see Luke Shaw, James Ward-Prowse etc? :)

Yes definitely, Luke Shaw is a favourite anyway.

Le Tissier Clears Out Old Men

Matt Le Tissier today announced all players above 30 or nearing 30 are not what the club is needing and will sell all players who are. Le Tissier feels the clubs future is youth and youth is the way to go. This has set up a huge list of out-goers. Including fan favourite Rickie Lambert.

Lambert for 3m? Are you having a laugh? :P

Haha I want at least £4.9m
I won't be following because you sold Southampton's best player for 5 times less than you could have :P

No seriously, Y U SELL LAMBERT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Liking the idea though :P

He only just sold for that?? He doesn't go for any more.
He's too old for the challenge..

But he's worth so much more, when you play him.
Louis. Then there would be no point in a challenge would there?
2013-06-01 20:27#107698 93:20 : Louis. Then there would be no point in a challenge would there?

The challenge isn't my point, my point is just that Rickie Lambert is teh bestest.
