A wonderful second-hand source informed me of this Richard Foster rumour a few days ago, alongside the rumour about a certain staff member leaving. I heard the same thing from someone else a few days later so I assume it’s true.

We may well be exiting the transfer window with one left-back and one right-back at our club.

That must be just about the youngest back four that we have ever fielded in a top league game 

And a 22 year old Captain to try and hold them together.

The worse news is still to follow, if the Foster one is true. Won't mean much to non-Saints fans, but to those who are, it's a massive, massive red flag considering who it is thats walking away.

Sounds like a atholl Henderson or Paul Smith type character ?

Can't be far off it, probably least experienced too. Presumably this is now our strongest back four...

Age in numbers, top flight appearances in brackets...

Duffy 20 (1) - Kerr 22 (45) - Gordon 23 (14) - Tanser 24 (59)

Average age: 22 - Total appearances: 119 (Average: 30)

Compared to last seasons regular back four...

Foster 33 (343) - Shaughnessy 26 (192) - Kerr 22 (43) - Tanser 24 (57)

Average age: 26 - Total appearances: 635 (Average: 159)

Warning signs are there.

If Foster was still in no one would look at our Central Defence.

If Foster was still in the team no one would look at our Central Defence.That is very young and inexperienced but most were happy to run with it Average age 22.5 Total Appearances 59 average appearances 29.5

Good to see the character that made us such b*****ds to beat returning. Could really do with not conceding 2 goals a game but that’s some result given the circumstances!

Here is a comment some may find strange. In our last 2 games we have scored 4 goals and conceded 4 goals could our problem be defending and not attacking. Therefore is a defensive midfielder or centre back a bigger priority
