    Ronny Deila the bargain basement Koeman. It's like if Schneiderlin waited a year for Tottenham to pay the asking price. I bet all the Celtic players will be clamouring to listen to Deila in future.

    He goes down there with the best wishes of most Celtic fans I would think.

    He wanted to go last year but when he didn't get his wish he didn't go in the huff. He knuckled down and continued to be a class act for us for the majority of the time.

    There are some who feel he struggled when playing against better opposition in Europe although I think that is harsh on him as I thin he spent a great deal of his time covering for others who weren't up to the task.

    Personally, I think he was the best defender we have had in years and still has much more improvement in him.

    I hope he does the business down there.

    Should be better than Jos at least (good character, crap defender at this level)

    Had a solid debut. Looked very composed. I liked how everytime he ran forward he looked back at Fonte to make sure there was cover.

    he's certainly still an attacking threat. defensively still a bit hit and miss.

    Back four!

    He has been one, if the not the best signing for us this season. Great presence at that back to go along side Jose Fonte who has been incredible for us for years now. It is a partnership i hope will last for at least a few season to really build the back four we had a couple of seasons back. Ryan Bertrand and Cedric Soares have also been superb from day one. We are starting to look a secure unit at the back once again. We need to keep them fit to do well this season. I'm feeling a push for Europe again!!

    Welcome mate, as a rule here to be a saints fan you need to be mildly obnoxious, always on a wind up and constantly annoying the scousers ;)

    So what part of Southampton you from mush?

    Hopefully its a sign of intent to Koeman and the other players.
