hi Liverpool fan here, really hope you lot stay up not because of how many players we sign from you but just because you play football the right way. I think what people have said about you selling to many good plays catching up with you is wrong think you stuck by the manager to long, and should of sold VVD at the start of the season could have had that money to spend in the summer, as he was not fit and did not won't to be there. and that was the same for us coutinho any way good luck saints.

Thanks Grino, good luck for the CL. agree about sticking with the manager too long, that said it didn't work for WBA and Stoke so far.

VVD - its funny as the board are blamed when we sell too quick and then again when they try and hold out. I am not sure our board would have spent the whole lot anyway, but a valid point.

The VVD situation was so tough. Good to see the board try and hold onto him rather than just sell, but unfortunately the player in question didn’t have the professionalism to do his job.

I suppose an argument can be made that the board should have realised this about him, but that seems very harsh. It was a lose-lose situation really; easy to sit here now and say they should have sold with the benefit of hindsight.

Yeah I agree 123, then there would no doubt be critical comments we sell all our best players. I know there is some truth in that but until recently the players replacing those that have departed have been improvements. My point is that the likes of VVD only signed for saints to replace another player.
