Reading the Liverpool forum and they are still desperate for VVD it seems. Also Clyne is being slated and they inference is as soon as they can he will be sold on as he is not wanted.

I feel for luke Shaw. he's been publicly torn to shreds and looks broken. I know his 100 grand a week and perhaps questionable attitude but his talent is undeniable. hopefully he can find fitness and maybe a move that suits him.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 10:01:30
Luke Shaw .
At Southampton he was treated the Southampton Way, treated as a young man, a young man with exceptional talent . who played his heart out for us, was rarely injured or missed a game, who's fitness was never in doubt as he bombed up and down the wing = England left back.
I followed him on twitter . a game of bowling with his buddies, Nandos with his mates, golf with his mates . all the things that a 17/ 18 year old should be doing!
He moves to Manchester . what do they do, shove him in some plush City Centre hotel to live . only 'mates' around, not real mates but footballers who regard themselves as celebrities! I think the first event he attended was a boxing match (from memory) where all the Man U players had ring side seats .

That same evening there were a few of Saints players in Ceno's sat eating, chatting, no show offs, just sensible guys having a chat and giggle .

So from young man going to Nandos with his mates, playing xbox . to part of the Marketing Giant that is Man U .

He was still a boy . sad . great player . great attitude.

{Ed001's Note - Clyne was similar, moved to Liverpool and it all went to his head. The clubs made a mess of things in both cases.}

It is such a shame .
I look ay Lemina we have just signed from Juventus, articulate, sociable, cheerful . plays his heart and socks off .
It seems for us, that character is a huge part of the selection process and then they are encouraged almost into a family way .
Luke Shaw didn't go from being injury free, very fit, England left back to this . shame .
Clyne was also superb .

Some of you guys have short memories, sorry . Luke Shaw was always injured when he was here with muscle strains.



16 Oct 2017 11:32:56
On a positive note think Lemina is going to be an incredible purchase whether we can hold on to him could be another issue. Seems to of adapted and is bossing the game already. Great to Gabbi back amongst the goals. Not sure what FF is doing at the moment and that has to put the fear of god into those in front of him.


1.) 16 Oct 2017 12:51:31
What does Charlie Austin have to do to be given a chance? 10 minutes at the end of a game is not enough. Long has had his fair share of chances. CA has to be given a run / starts in the team to show what he can do!

2.) 16 Oct 2017 13:25:44
Hi Ben, I partly agree with you what about Austin and Gabbiadini up front and Long replacing Redmond on the wing, he is certainly more direct and aggressive and would give other teams more to think about and possibly restrict them moving forward. It makes you wonder at the wisdom of selling Jay Rodrigues!
Regards vs.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 16:26:22
Good shout Vintagesaint, for me I just want to see Charlie on the pitch, and I do think it could work with Gabbi, long haworked out on the flanks for us before so yes I could see that working.

4.) 16 Oct 2017 20:35:23
Guys, all well and good saying let's play Gabbi, Shane and Charlie. but that's all 3 of our strikers! Any injuries, we're in that brown stuff.

5.) 16 Oct 2017 20:54:06
Hi staffs, I take your point but 9 points from 8 games is relegation form and if you look at our run of games over Xmas and run up we will not be picking up many points there. The only consolation is we are not the worst team by any means but let's not kid ourselves we are poor but not the worst but is that the height of our hopes and aspirations mid table mediocrity? The game is awash with money but I believe the standard of football has declined and Saints unfortunately epitomise this and it's not a complicated game and we look poor too often. Regards vs.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 03:33:19
I like this scenario but it doesn't account for Davis and I think Davis needs to be in the team. He's a massive miss for me.

7.) 17 Oct 2017 23:41:57
Hi VS. Good points again well made. Yes we need to get out of the current form. Personally, 352 with an improved Boufal could do it. But hey, who are we lol.



04 Aug 2017 22:28:14
Have been told by an ex player who is very involved at saints VVD will NOT go to Liverpool under any circumstances and the club still do not want to sell him full stop.




26 Jul 2017 14:20:34
Why don't saints invite sky sports and some other media outlets down and ask them to reveal their sources re VVD. It is to easy and lazy for journalists to invent a story and say a "source" they need to be challenged and held accountable. Otherwise the sports pages become an agents wage busting inflation tool.




31 May 2017 13:57:55
Clasie to lazio? New kit leaked? VVD to Liverpool? Puel to go if we can get a replacement who is any better?
Just the headlines for today.

Hiw many more years in a row are we going to regress rubbish first 60 mins against an at best average Watford team with a manager who had no wins away from home last year. this is getting a joke play some aggressive pressing attacking football at leat if we lose then we have had a go no craft no guile no idea I bet gabbiadini wishes he didn't start with the average negative play that is behind him. No wingers everyone comes inside it is awful.




06 Sep 2017 17:37:32
So VVD starts against Watford? What reception does he get from the fans he makes a mistake what reaction does he get? He doesn't apologise would that make a difference there is still a lot to play out in this story I think. We still don't know the players feelings towards him it's like any work environment you have to accept those you may not like or agree with. The pellegrino will have to make a big statement or the club will sooner or later to see what the future holds for him. Has he even withdrawn his request now the window has closed or does this not matter?


1.) 07 Sep 2017 07:35:51
Don't care. He is our best defender. If his head is right and the team accept him then he plays. Fans booing him are as bad as him when he handed in a transfer request. Draw a line under it and move on.

2.) 07 Sep 2017 15:46:06
He won't start - he has to play U23s once or twice first.

He hasn't played a match for 10 months - won't be fit enough.



27 Aug 2017 20:03:54
Adams traore anyone god if he could be coached could be world class surely someone can slow him down a pace and take a final touch.




17 Aug 2017 19:20:13
Krueger and pellegrino seem honest men to trust let's hope this is the future strong people with the clubs best interest at heart making brave decisions.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 22:00:03
I think Claude Puel was an honest man as well and I think VVD was fit enough to play during the second half of last season but had already decided he wanted to go. We employed Puel and just wonder whether we should have given him a bit more time, Probably not but we did get to our first Cup Final in 14 years.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 01:13:40
Chris I'm sorry but this is just ridiculous. You were the first one calling for Puel's head. More importantly, and this is the bit that make me truly angry, but where the hell do you get this idea that throughout last season VVD was healthy and available to play yet, ignoring all hope to save his job from fickle and pathetic fans like yourself, Puel thought he'd leave a healthy player on the sidelines for months.

{Ed001's Note - VVD was 100% injured and unable to play. There was no malingering going on.}

3.) 18 Aug 2017 11:07:11
I never ever called for Puels head and I take exception to you saying that. How can you say that, it is totally false. I think he could have done things differently but never would I say what you implied.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 11:13:01
I thought this was a banter site with people giving their opinions, seems to me I appear to be getting the mild side of hate mail no matter what I put down. I wouldn't step so low guys. Still if it makes you feel happy and justified in making the remarks you do carry on. Life's too short.

5.) 18 Aug 2017 17:42:05
You are almost exclusively negative and I take exception to you making claims with absolutely no foundation. The idea of some conspiracy to pretend our best player was injured is ridiculous and I don't know where you got it from. Maybe I came off a bit harsher than I meant to, but I stand by everything I said.

6.) 19 Aug 2017 00:34:46
The reports were that he had decided in January that he wanted to leave and told CP that and Les. What factual evidence do you have that he wasn't reasonably fit during the last few games of last season. I have none and I don't know anybody that does apart from the medical team At St. Mary's and the player himself. Seems strange that all the players that want moves have picked up a virus or have a slight knock that stops them from being available. Couthino, Jonny Evans, Berkley, Sanchez etc, etc.

7.) 19 Aug 2017 01:54:48
That post just cracked me up .

8.) 19 Aug 2017 11:50:07
Ed has just said that VVD was 100% injured Chris. Accept when you're wrong. As with most of the things you say on here you had no foundation and were caught out in it. Shhhh now.



07 Aug 2017 09:20:43
great to see Liverpool don't want a centre back anymore. What will all there ex players have to spout to the press now. Also llalana out for 2 months and coutinho off to a big club. OH DEAR CLIPPITY hardly looking so rosey now.
saints will not sell VVD to Liverpool this season GUARENTEED.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 11:41:01
I'd love to see Coutinho hand in a transfer request haha
I wonder if in seeing this VVD may consider rejoining the group soon?

2.) 07 Aug 2017 16:53:12
I've read elsewhere that he's done a VVD - told Liverpool he wants to leave but hasn't handed in a transfer request! Apparently, deal has been agreed for weeks, could be unveiled by Barcelona by Wednesday. Only another rumour site, but would be hilarious.

The reality is a deal has to be done you can go for x and you can go in x then it stops all the rubbish that is going around. I was quite smug watching a fire Liverpool back line today then had to watch an inept performance from us against an at best average team. How many times will out me big money signings not deliver why didn't we buy traore or likewise 13m skin player burn pace and duff a cross at least he doesn't cut inside going to be a long hard season and all our decent youth strikers are on loan.

I've said it for a year now olufelo on loan at yeah ok is the future movement pace strength hits the target think we should of given him time from the bench this year. Wouldn't mind ings as a back up if he is now surplus at Liverpool or Sturbridge at the right price. We go on about the kids but it seems to Of stalled with them all going on loan instead of playing 22 plus you should be in the team not out in loan.

Spoke to an ex saints player 2 weeks ago and he had spent the whole Friday at saints. Won't name him but I was on a flight to Guernsey he stated categorically that VVD was not for sale this window and would NOT be going to Liverpool- clearly money talks but that was the clubs stance and appears to remain so. Why would anyone sign for a manager who appears to think he is bigger than the players the way they have treated sakho and mignonette seems appalling and basically bullying in any other workplace. Also why would anyone want a player who has basically been on strike twice at two clubs comes across ok but appears to be a merchant banker.

Didn't pin it on him was just an example of what he needs to improve he just stands there most of the time and the ball hits him. He needs to use his size to make the forward think about him then by default not time the finish.

Had this conversation with an ed previously he stated Forster hasn't trained on since he left Newcastle. How can you be that big and not terrify attackers Utd 3rd in cup final prime example scream and come off your line nobody wouldn't flinch. He has to decide knuckle down train and change or loose first team place. If he comes for crosses and misses it's better than standing still.

NO goalie should be beaten in the air from a cross if they time it right they are all 6' to 6'6 and have a 2 foot reach Ronaldo doesn't leap 8' 6 keep getting improved contracts doesn't help.
I don't like to slate any player but he needs to hear some comments watch videos and improve
Chuffed for yosh great servant always tries sometimes unlucky and versatile squad player.

Tbf the manager has come out and said it was bad. He isn't puel he seems passionate and honest . he gave boufal a chance and he didn't take it I think Simms et al will be sat there saying this years our chance. VVD if keen will make a massive difference McCarthy could be starting soon I just wish we had kept olufelo as we are clearly short of strikers and he is on fire. When he doesn't score I talk to Yeovil fans and they all say his movement and running is first class. We are going to be in a dog fight soon if we can't score at home what does that say.

It may be the club have got it wrong in keeping him 70m may look a fortune in a years time. Be interesting to know if and when an olive branch is held out to get him back with the team and being a World Cup year seems irrelevant now as holland are truely pony. Hopefully he will knuckle down and prove his worth and get the move he so clearly wants at a time and fee that is agreeable to all.
Not sure if he plays how those who are dropped will feel I would be truely pissed off watching someone playing for a move ahead of me but that seems to be football now. Loyalty and hinesty is made to look like a negative.

29 and the same player with injury concerns we sold do me a favour. We would be better if selling him to that scouse bag if rubbish and getting originand 60-70 m for him at least he has potential or arseholes and well beck in the deal.
