    Well Spurs had a 2m bid rejected for Routledge who's out of contract in just 5 months so maybe they're putting their interest back in Reid now. Routledge will end up costing a lot more overrall in wages + transfer fee (Palace want about 4m) as a premiership player with a contract to fall back on will demand more than a Championship one desperate to move.

    Reid wants Spurs ahead of any other club. Fully expect him to sign for Spurs even if it is a last minute deal.

    Now as the resident Saints fan, I must interject now. Le Tissier was a special talent, with our team being built around him for about 8 years. He was consistent, but he didn't need a whole game. One or two moments of sheer genius plus his constant ability to pick out passes that tore open defences are what kept us up.

    He wasn't gritty, but don't think that he was an inconsistent player, trust me, he wasn't.

    Le God's only problem was being born in Guernsey rather than Dundalk.

    No one would bid 4m for a player who's contract is up in five months. I think Spurs will wait for Routledge on a freee in the summer rather than fork out for Reid.

    Just a shame Saints seem to have spunked all our budget elsewhere.

    There's no way in the world that Reid should go to Southampton. He's playing in the Championship at the moment and he doens't want to be doing the same thing next season.

    Routledge is too young to go on a free which is why Spurs are bidding for him. If he was over 24 (is that the age) Spurs could just sign him up now but they'll have to pay a lot in compensation now that he's only 19.

    I thought he was older than that. But surely the compensation wouldn't be anywhere near as much as 4m?

    you would try and get him on a pre-contract then surely?

    What about the interest in H Camara - please please please take him off out hands................
    I thought you were off the drink Ronnie?

    Its a bit complicated, its not just a one off payment. Don't know a lot about the tribunals though.

    Well the Camara deal is dead in the water as Wolves (thankfully) won't play ball.

    In my previous post, I was refering to Reid to Saints, as we are chasing him (According to Lowe & Redknapp at last night's Fan's Forum ), not Routledge.

    was just reading over some of my posts and others posts on this thread,,,,,reids looking far from clever now is he! look at the hype there was around him, now do we just accept that hes an average player? or does he have so much more to offer?

    I think Reid is a talented player. I suspect he's been told to work on his fitness / physique by Jol. Footballers these days are skin and bone (remember Ronan O'Gara's remark after the Irish rugby team shared a hotel with Man United last year?) and Andy Reid doesn't fit this description. I thought he looked out of condition at the Swiss game. Reid should take a leaf out of Joe Cole's book & work hard because his chance could come again at any time.

    Has Routledge been getting a game at Spurs? Has Reid played more than him?

    Andy Reid has gone backwards for whatever reason. Some of the displays he put on for Forest were top drawer and he stood out head and shoulders above most in the Championship. I don't accept the Premiership is a huge step up. Look at Wigan and West Ham - many of the players for them whom Andy would have left in the shade in the Championship are performing well in the top flight. A lot has to do with confidence and being able to cope with from being a big fish in a small pool to the reverse. He hasn't managed it at Spurs but I for one am confident that he has the ability to succeed.

    They beat Man City easily last year too. Beyond the top three or so the premiership is sevearly lacking in quality and the gap just is not that big anymore.

    Andy Reid transfer speculation (now signed for Charlton)

    Not official yet but it looks like Spurs are about to sell Andy Reid to Leeds for 1 million rising to 2 million depending on appearances. Some difference in the 8m they paid for him. Hopefully Andy gets back to his best. last time I saw him for Ireland he looked as if he piled on more weight.

    They paid 8m for him and Dawson. Dawson is now a first team regular so I don't think they'd be too disappointed getting rid of Reid for 2m. Hopefully wherever he goes this summer he'll be played in central midfield as he's no teenage winger anymore. Excellent passer and tackler and pretty much made for the middle.
