It's pretty obvious that we've got money to spend on wages by offering Nasri £80k a week, surely we could've used that money to sort out Rice's contract?

Maybe Hernandez out 120k wages split 80k Nasri, 40k Rice.

I actually wanted us to get Nasri before he went to Sevilla. He's got a lot of quality on the ball I think he would help us create from deeper. I know people talk about his attitude but I'm sure Pellegrini knows him better than us, the thing that concerns me is his time out and Age maybe the break has done him some good and he comes back fighting who knows. Any thoughts?

I agree with the negative comments around Nasri, as he does present some degree of risk. BUT, i don't think it is as bad a deal as people make out. We clearly need technical players in the team ATM, ideally with PL experience, and if accounts are correct that Antonio and Hernandez may well be out then Nasri on a short term basis may work. I for one would rather have Nasri coming on after 60 mins than Antonio, he will bring a degree of composure and a final ball that Antonio lacks. Get £10m for Antonio and we have a net profit of £5m (plus a better player IMO) which can go towards a second striker such as Barbosa (or someone else) if Hernadez does go, so that's a win win.
Come summer we can say goodbye and conduct the second big stage of re-structuring. Nasri has BOTH experience in the PL and a previous relationship with MP, which suggests he is LESS OF A GAMBLE than paying a big sum for someone else who may not have PL experience and MP will have to learn about. Nasri may also have something to prove, and choosing a short term deal with a manager he knows and has positive memories of working with may prove this. If he fails with us under MP then his career is over, whereas he could maybe get a 3 year deal elsewhere on £50k with a signing on fee.
We CANNOT spend huge money buying another wide player on a long contract, as we have Lanzini and Yarmo to come back which would leave us over-stocked here. So a deal like this with Nasri makes complete sense, he will have time with the squad to get fit before Xmas, so he will be settled and in sync with the squad come Jan 1st. It represents an upgrade on Antonio for the second half of the season, a profit, AND we can walk away come summer if we wanted to.
Were we offering a 3 year deal my feelings may be different.

Looks like the deal starting from January for Nasri is on the way to being done? Hope your right Iron. Al👍👍
No doubting previous quality, but can only rely on Pelligrini’s judgement, now get Rice sorted as you say!
We’ve not been short of deals since Pelle’s been In charge that’s for sure🤣🤣 let's hope he gets some off the books as well in January 👍👍⚒⚒⚒⚒.

The Sun is suggesting it may fall over due to the state of his fitness - I would prefer it fell over tbh.

I really don't get this one at all and I think it's got us written all over it I tell you what we will give a SHORT yes SHORT term deal for a player that hasn't played for 18 months now I don't care if he's been keeping fit in the gym which I don't doubt for one minute because he's never ever Been over weight or out of condition ( take note Antonio) but it's going to take 4-6 weeks to get up to pack of he premiership then he WILL think he's a certain starter which he WONT and another thing is we have LANZINI back soon unless we don't know something about a relapse in his recovery Mike might fill us in on that subject but a short term deal of £80,000 a week for him to be on the bench and causing havoc which he's week renowned for not saying he will but come on really this stinks of a bad deal IMO hope he proves me wrong but why oh hey do we have to entertain these has been who I might be doing us a disservice by saying he can't have ambitions anymore and is only looking for yes you got it a redundancy pay off but why use us for it we don't owe him kcuf lla and I'd be over he moon if it doesn't happen . COYI.

Would sacking Mark Hughes as Manager of Southampton FC be a mistake at this moment in time

If Pelle is really that keen on Nasri, make the following humble financial suggestion.

As he could come on a free, but wants a
£5m wages, do it as follows:

One year contract with a signing on fee of £5m payable in 52 weekly instalments. Give him a weekly wage of £1 so that he appears on the payroll. Renewable renegotiated contract by mutual agreement at the end of the year.

That won’t damage our wages bill form a FFP perspective.

{Ed025's Note - im sure nasri and his advisers would jump at that markro(not), so good luck with that mate.. :)

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2018 18:38:52
You may have guessed, I’m not keen on him coming at all, Ed. It will be interesting to see if any other side wants him for that sort of wage after an 18 month ban and at his age. I’ve read that he is an egocentric so and so and a negative presence off the field.

My tongue in cheek suggestion above would give him the cash he wants for the first year, be good for our FFP and make him prove himself if he wants an extension.

My preference is that he comes nowhere near our club.

{Ed025's Note - i think that would be the best thing markro mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2018 15:37:12
So much for my preferences!

Six month contract at £80k a week reportedly being discussed, even though he can’t play till January.

A VERY WET MIKE, here. Rice makes mistake 0-1 Fab made some great saves during game but in my view should have kept this shot out We were the better side throughout, but shoulders slumped a bit after conceding / / a bit later Antonio had two shots one was twenty yards over the bar the other one about 30, he's bloody useless, good well taken goal by Andersen cool man in a scramble, OBIANG did not look fit to me, we deserved ar least adraw In Reality we should have got all three. IRONMIKE.

Well done Mike, thanks for the wet update🤣 think we can forgive Fabianski that error, great keeper for us, like your complimentary input on Antonio🤣🤣hoping for 3 points but not unhappy with the one point👍 Looking forward to MOTD⚒⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fab was totally wrong footed and the post made a great save from the freak cross come shot later in the half, though game but we had more than enough class on the pitch to win today, but didn't. Anderson was poor before the goal Mike but well done to him for the finish . Antonio omg what do we do with him? Didn't even thank the fans at the end, just walked off down the tunnel.

Shouted at the TV when Antonio took his shots. He shoots running across goal and off balance no hope of hitting the target. Thought Obiang was pretty good but Pellegrini obviously looking to attack. Rice made an error for the goal but so did Diop passing to a tightly marked Anderson running towards his own goal which put them all under pressure.

Thought we deserved the point but thought the goal wouldn’t come. Then thought Huddersfield were going to nick it st the end. All in all good to come away with a point and hopefully lift for the Man City game so we go into the run of winnable games after that still with confidence.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2018 09:11:24
Strange game really. Pelle should have prepared us better for their pressing, which we clearly found hard to counter. I felt sorry for Arnie, who was consequently isolated at times, which meant he went wider and wider to look for space.

Unfortunate that Rice and Diop had below par games at the same time.

It will be interesting to see how Pelle manages the availability of Carroll and Wilshere for the City game. Both owe us performances.

I know it’s a long way off, but Lanzini’s return can’t come quickly enough for me.
