Heard on the vine of grapes that Arsenal want VVD and are prepared to swap Wallcott - there is a delay on money as he wants more than Saints can offer, so to me that says he wouldn't rule a return out. I think that would be a great asset to the team and would happily see VVD leave for the 75 million price tag.

I've heard it's hit the bricks already cause Walcott wants 180k pw we can only offer 130k pw but it would still make him the highest earner.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:26:15
Yeah I don't think the club should be prepared to change our wage system for Theo Walcott. If one player earns that much than our whole team will want the same.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 09:33:45
Not entirely sure Walcott is the solution to our lack of goals up front. Plus as someone plus the Eds stated these cash plus players deals are really difficult to put together. There are better options out there i'm sure.

I'd be surprised if we could get to 130 k to be honest. think we have a fairly strict wage structure and believe our top earner may actually be ff. on about 100k 😵.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 12:21:56
Why would we want Theo Walcott? I have been trying to think of a reason but no can't think of one. This has to be just journalistic speculation otherwise known as grabbing at straws.

6.) 30 Aug 2017 13:26:00
Why would we not want him? We desperately need a creative player with some pace and he fits the bill, the current AM's seem bereft of ideas.

If Walcott allegedly wants that amount then he clearly doesn't want to come (if he ever did)

Wondering why we aren't making a move for Barkley - he is a quality (international) player; I accept we are a bit overrun in midfield but surely he would warrant a starting place - most of our midfield were "mediocre" at best last season bar Romeo. With him reported to want to leave surely there is a bargain to be had? Be fab to see Munir or (especially) Vietto at the club, he is quality - I still think we need a CB and pacey winger, I'd be happy to see either Tadic or Bouffal go for a better player. Lost out on Loftus-Cheek to Palace, to slow on the draw Saints.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 08:39:32
he's overrated and not got a good enough attitude on and off the pitch to be considered for Saints. Why would we pay well over the odds for him?

Boufal is a excellent player, Loftus-Cheek is an unknown, would rather have any of our midfielders than him.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 10:40:32
Can't see us selling boufal when we've only just signed him and he hasn't had a proper chance through injury etc. tadic is a tough one, his temperament was poor last season and if he goes near another penalty I'd probably run on and stack him! But he's our main creative source and leading assist/ chance maker.

Barkley in theory would be ideal, but in reality I don't know of other would work and I imagine Everton still want 30 mill for him which is about 10-15 mill too much.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 14:38:12
If only we hadn't let Cuco's contract run down, we could have negotiated a swap deal.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 15:54:20
Jules - I can't see even the remotest possibility of Saints bidding for Ross Barkley - he is exactly the type of player we never buy - expensive - already "developed" - high profile and possibly has an over developed sense of his own importance. I will donate £20 to charity of your choice if we bid for him as long as its nothing to do with anything in the city of Liverpool.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 16:37:32
Saints going for Barkley lol, he probably doesn't even know where Southampton is agree totally with FU2,he wants out of everton because he thinks he's too good for them I wouldn't mind betting his agent has told him already who's interested hence koeman playing hard ball over his delay in signing a new contract.

Here's hoping. (bin Redmond, VVD and Tadic for some cash)

I agree that the club has limitations and these shouldn't be compromised; however I put on here a while back that I think Walcott would be a nice addition, while some argue he hasn't been that much better at Arsenal, remember when he played and got game time each week he was practically on the score sheet every week - something we have to consider seeing as our "goal scoring" looks epic in training and abysmal in matches. He has the confidence to run and pressurise defences, I think he is definitely worth a punt. He will do well wherever he goes I'm sure, so why don't we take advantage of it instead of West Ham (who are bloody awful) and Everton who are panic buying and spiralling into the Championship.

Fair point Milky, got a bit carried away and saw pound signs! Bouffal needs a proper run out (especially seeing how much we paid for him) and I agree that Tadic would be the best to sell on.

We have strikers, what we need is a creative playmaker that can be an assist king, like another post said Bouffal, Tadic and Redmond have lots of huff and puff but then it fizzles out - I'd sell all three for a decent PM that can get forward and feed the strikers - we all know that Gabbs and Austin can score but they don't want to have to run from their own box to do it.
