This situation with VVD is a bit of a deja vu from a couple of seasons ago with morgan schneiderlin. Kicked off a fuss, made statements and handed in a TR. head wasnt in it during pre season but still come the close of the window was still a saints player and gave us another excellent season. Every "expert" pundit is saying he is off and I know ED002 says he is damaged goods. But still I won't be suprised if this situation ends the same and that's not wishful thinking, I just think you never know in football. thoughts?

Apparently despite the transfer request the clubs stance hasn't changed so I think I can see this happening. At the end of the day if he isn't sold before the end of the window he's going to want to play as the top clubs won't want him again if he hasn't played for a season + it's a World Cup year, I reckon we will get another season even if is begrudgingly haha.

Lukeyboy I am not Mystic Meg but there is no chance in the world that VVD will pull on a SFC shirt again. I admire the club over this, all the media are creating now is a situation where we will probably get an extra 10 million because of all the publicity this has brought.

Hmm I get why everyone is saying that chris, but pretty sure everyone was saying the same about morgan when this was happening with him. only time will tell.

Morgan was a completely different situation . He came here and went through our rise up the leagues and had strong bonds with the club. He was also a midfielder of which there are loads in the PL of his quality. VVD has been with us quite a short time but like it or not is being quoted as one of the best CB's in Europe which is true. He is worth a great deal of money to us and doesn't want to play for us. In the interest of SFC it would make sense to sell him and invest the proceeds in quality players who can help the club push for the top six. All very well having principles but we may end up being the losers in this if the team struggles defensively just for basically saving face. Sell him, move on and everybody will forget about this by Christmas.


5.) 09 Aug 2017 21:04:40
Agree Chris,
Sell him and replace so team can move forward at least for now.


6.) 09 Aug 2017 21:36:47
I understand your point Chris, all I'd say is I think he'd have the same value next summer and agree that players almost always get their head down once the window is closed. They'd be stupid not to and their advisors would tell them that. It's money out of their pockets if his value drops or people lose interest.

This whole thing is 90% about money anyway and after September 1st it makes financial sense for him to get his head down, play well and take his pick of the top clubs that will still want him.


7.) 09 Aug 2017 23:44:43
I love your confidence 123 and I agree completely with what you're saying . Unfortunately he will never play for SFC again . That's the problem. Something has to give and money will sort that in the end it always does.

Seen on sly sports that jeremain lens wants a move from dynamo kiev. This worth an enquiry? Good attacker/winger which koeman wants, plus dutch

Reports from holland saying dusan tadic will be joining southampton for €12 million after the player spoke to roland koeman, and fc twente prepared to let him go for the fee

Hoedt in lazio squad tonight, so surely his move isn't quite imminent yet.

i was also wondering from the clubs prospective. Surely if what virgil is saying is true, then the club were aware of him wanting out this summer. Then why appoint him team captain when so many others are more deserving. Maybe i'm thinking a bit too old school but to me a captain of the team should be a leader who sets the example and is proud to wear the shirt. Not a great example he is setting for others.

The more I look into this with virgil the more it really pisses me off. A, why sign a 6 year deal last summer if he wanted out a year later. B, why be appointed team captain in feb if for "the last 6 months" he has been looking for a move. C, why bitter about being fined 2 weeks wages when he hasn't played since feb and "wasnt in the right mindset" to take part in pre season. If we all weren't in the right frame of mind for work. then we get sent home unpaid! And finally, he "wants to win honours" then why have his heart set on liverpool. seriously man.

Yup loan being terminated after 23 days, shame as we could of done with having a little bit of depth.

This would make no sense to me, we need depth so why would we give players away for free? If its his value saints are worried about, they could just play him!?

Have a feeling van dyke is one of them, we have always expressed interest i'm him, koeman wanted him when he first arrived and virgil himself said he's not sure if he will still be at celtic on monday. Is something going on behind the scenes I wonder?

How the hell can u criticise tadic comparing him to lallana after 1 game in the PL!? Lallana hardly set the world alight in his first PL season. Give tadic a chance to settle into his new team and league before making stupid statements

Plus he wants a move. England being 1 of his preferred leagues. Shouldn't be too expensive, it all makes sense

Would love to see lens here. And he wants to leave kiev so we could snap him up if we went in for him
