Klopp and Liverpool's conduct in this matter has been nothing short of appalling, unethical and unprofessional.
There's NO disputing that, absolutely. Many LFC fans, I included, had been particularly scathing and were welcoming of any potential punishment.

It transpired that the matter went, and remains, on file, as Ed02 has kindly updated us.
Crucially, Liverpool DROPPED their interest and are now COMPLETELY out of the picture.
Whatever happens now re VVD, Liverpool no longer has any involvement.

Wouldn't it thus be fair, particularly on you folks, to move on from this, especially with respect to Liverpool? Bulk of LFC fans have accepted VVD issue as dead in the water and have moved on, as well they should.

It is unfortunate the situation we've created for your clube and skipper.
As Ed02 points out, VVD position now untenable. He'll likely have to be sold now.
Perhaps you'll find solace and some form of justice in the fact that he won't be going to Liverpool.

One would hope you may get the best price for him and be able to make proper provision for his sale.

And lastly, Ed02, what does it mean when a complaint is "on file"? To be honest, most of us had expected Southampton to follow thru harder with this issue. It seemed necessary that they do so. What's going on?

Saintjay, I think you most probably spot on. Bertrand would wish to consider his options should a big club declare interest, as well he should. It's good to see you guys coming to terms with the realities of football, albeit in baby steps. Should do your health a world of good.

You by no means have an incompetent management as led by Mr Reed . Am sure that provision will be made should any of your top players wish to move, as always has been the case.

Am sure those among you who've seen the club thru the worst times will know better to be more sanguine and less "in a state" about these things and that you'll still have a good club to support in the "best" league in the world.

Oh come off it. You big girls blouse.
I guess the proper Saints fans should be glad those running their club don't have infantile dispositions such as yourself.

If VVD is sold, rest assured it'll be for the best price for the club. Feelings of immature and uninformed fans as yourself WON'T be a consideration AT ALL. Deal with it.

IF Southampton makes VVD available, Liverpool want him and meet asking and VVD wants the move. it WILL happen. Your opinions about/ dislike of Liverpool hold BUGGER ALL sway. least so with Van Dijk.

If you unhappy about it. tough. Maybe do something about it. Start hate campaign (against who I don't know. Don't buy season tickets or club merchandise. Better still, jump off a cliff.

Football's a cutthroat business that has little time or sympathy for dreamy romanticists and their archaic fantasies.

The year is 2017. Football is a business. Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Virgil Van Dijk are no Matt le Tissier. The world doesn't revolve around Southampton. Harsh realities, I know. but is what it is.

Move on.

Get over yourselves will you.
Liverpool long moved on from the VVD matter. publicly at that.
And so have the fans. with the exception of a smaller section.

The world doesn't revolve around Virgil Van Dijk. most certainly not Liverpool's. You may not know it and want to believe otherwise, but I assure you.

LFC had long moved on from this. You'd be better off doing the same.

As for you not wanting to sell to Liverpool, am sure you don't need me to point it out to you that your feelings/ hopes mean absolutely bugger and have no relevance.

This is a business. And Southampton, is part and parcel of it.
It amazes me that you should be "surprised/ offended" when your players want to leave for better club s. better prospects and more money indeed.

You're a long way off competing at any sort of high level. You in no position either to pay high end wages.
Most players are driven by the common factors of money and trophies. Neither of which Southampton can offer.
Crucially, these players don't necessarily have an affinity with your club. or any other club for that matter.

Just now, Barcelona want Coutinho. If the player wants to leave. then we get the best deal and move on.
We not at that level. so understandably, I don't begrudge the player.

With the exception of perhaps the elite sides (Madrid, Bayern and Barca) . every club below could be seen as a stepping stone.
It's just the nature of the game. Nothing more, nothing less. Certainly nothing personal.

Every team would LIKE to hold onto their best players. But quite frankly, it's nigh on impossible. unless you Madrid, Bayern Barca.

"Force" the player? How does that help? More detrimental in the long run than you realise.
Gonna be paying gazillion pounds to player possibly not overly arsed. Disruptive. Value likely plummets as well.

And to flip the coin, Tadic deteriorates. You wanna get rid. 3 years left on contract. Player says NO. He wants you to honour the contract. the full three years. He ain't going nowhere.

So how does that work out huh? Now the shoe is in the other foot. I bet you be the first on here murdering the player.

What it comes down to is being reasonable. You don't want your team having it difficult signing players as they'd be concerned with the manner of your approach they wanna leave.

If the stance was that of forcing players yo stay against their will, they'd practically be no business done.

Look at Monaco. Accept that a player wants out AND get the best price for him. which they've done.
The fans won't like losing their best players, but it's the reality. Borussia Dortmund the same as well.
And it's not going to stop anytime soon.

The trick is being able to shrewdly reinvest that money and rebuild.
Should VVD be sold this summer, whether it's to Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, rest assured it'll be for record breaking money.

And you'd have done well for it. Better still should you reinvest it sharply. which I believe you'll do.
