Stir It Up

Stir It Up

Will Harry Redknapp never tire of stirring up the south coast rivalry ? Only a few days after joining Pompey and admitting he never realised how fierce the rivalry was, Harry's again infuriating Saints fans with talk of trying to sign our captain, Nigel Quashie. Of all the midfield players in the country, he hopes to sign one of ours. How does he expect the spotlight to move on, if he continues like this. Maybe, despite what he says, he likes being the centre of the press attention everyday ? Hopefully Quashie will show more loyalty and commit his future to Saints.

It does look likely Kevin Bond will rejoin Redknapp at Pompey. Realistically Saints could do with trimming the number of coaching staff and offloading someone so strongly linked to Harry would be an ideal opportunity.

Since his wonder goal against Luton on Sunday speculation has, predictably, seen Theo Walcott linked to the countries top clubs again.

It does look promising that the 16 year old will sign a new contract with Saints, when he turns 17 in March. He stated ' I am flattered by the speculation but I want to play in the Premiership with The Saints. I feel I belong to Southampton now'

In other news, Dave Bassett and Dennis Wise appear to have emerged as the front runners for the vacant management position, after the 1-0 over Luton on Sunday.

Rupert Lowe is keeping his options open but the duo will be in charge for the weekend trip to Norwich. Lowe said “I had along chat with Dave Bassett and Dennis Wise after yesterday's game, which was a very important win for us. They have agreed to take the team again on Saturday and we are very grateful to them for their help and support.

“They will be among the main contenders for the job, but the board are looking at all the options'
