HI Eds

Read a few rumours that Peter Moore is speaking to the premier league and also meeting Southampton's people in person at some point today to smooth things over and see about the possibility of resurrecting the deal, any ideas if there is any truth in this?
From what I've read from interviews with Moore he said he was taking a back seat from transfers, so I bet he's wondered what he's got himself into if he's got to go Southampton an clear this mess up, that's presumably if he wasn't involved.

{Ed001's Note - I believe the rumours are true, that all 3 parties will be involved in clear the air talks.}

You couldn't write this stuff! It's like a soap opera. Hope it's true and we can get the deal done but Im not holding my breath.

08 Jun 2017 13:43:55
Probably the most exciting transfer window I have ever experienced.

08 Jun 2017 13:36:55
Would you think the deal can still be done eds.

{Ed001's Note - can definitely, will is a different matter though.}

08 Jun 2017 13:41:24
Ed1 - is this with a possible view to making a deal happen?

{Ed001's Note - firstly it is with a view to ensuring we don't get a transfer ban.}

08 Jun 2017 13:55:35
I don't want excitement. I'd like competency and reasonable behaviour. Where's Peter Robinson when you need him?

08 Jun 2017 13:56:06
And it hasn't even opened A2 😂
It's going to be a long summer!

08 Jun 2017 13:53:46
And it's not even open yet 😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - that doesn,t matter to liverpool..they just charge in like a burglar jcw.. :)

08 Jun 2017 13:49:08
Eds do you think the deal can be struck? Seems very odd all this, although i can't really see vvd staying after this fiasco.

{Ed001's Note - that is the point, VVD wants to move, so it can be struck. I just have my fears about the costs involved.}

08 Jun 2017 14:02:30
Haha ed025! It's like black Friday and we've gone in swinging!

{Ed025's Note - your right there robbie.. :)

08 Jun 2017 14:00:33
eds do you see city or Chelsea going back in for him or are they a no go now for vvd.

{Ed001's Note - I do not expect either of those clubs to return for him now.}

08 Jun 2017 14:09:19
Why don't we just leave it and spend 60m elsewhere instead of on a CB than had half a decent season and has been injured since December?

08 Jun 2017 14:12:08
Good point, 50m is overpaying as it is. Especially since he is coming back from injury. More than than that seems like insanity.

08 Jun 2017 14:18:25
Oh boy. if we do get a deal done for VVD I wouldn't be surprised if the cost is close to twice our current transfer fee record (£35m) to smooth things up. could be a crazy fee for a CB! Just go and buy Soton club already!

08 Jun 2017 14:19:26
ed that does not leave Southampton with many options. So do you think they would be happy to start negotiations with us now. After making a point that the so called big teams can't just do what they like, And still getting paid over the odds for VVD so a win win for Southampton.

{Ed001's Note - I think it comes down to how much we are willing to pay really.}

08 Jun 2017 14:21:26
One reason not to "just leave it" is that, if Chelsea or City don't come in for him, we have left the player high and dry, after he allegedly committed to come to us.

That's a good policy if you want to ensure that fewer players, agents, and clubs will want to deal with you in the future. Kind of like selling a lemon to a car buyer and expecting repeat business.

Given the amount of money we have wasted in recent years, paying a little more to sort out this mess and repair some of the damage to our reputation may be a good idea.

08 Jun 2017 14:50:27
Agree - horrible mess but cleanest thing we can do now is settle on VVD (assuming Soton wants rid) and Salah and move on. We don't need anything else apart from a LB, and so if we pay a bit more for VVD then so be it as we deserve a bit of a slap given the idiotic mistake of not clearing discussions with Soton first.

We can also even spend a bit less on a FB if we have to (Sessegnon as understudy to Milner if we can get him) and keep our noses clean for the rest of the window. we don't need anything else urgently for next season IMO.

08 Jun 2017 15:07:27
When the bad news came out ref our apology and pulling out of the deal, i did post that this transfer was not over yet, I get info from a taxi driver, he says that we are still in for VVD, also Salah, we will know more after the weekend .

{Ed025's Note - oh a taxi driver...that explains everything mate.. :)

08 Jun 2017 15:56:59
Ed01 do you think it would make more financial sense and for tge good of the club to say to Southampton. look we are at fault it will be investigated and dealt with it will not happen again. The player wants a move what cost are you looking at. They say x amount and we as a club say here you go. Our apologies and let's sort a friendly with you getting the proceeds and all parties can move on.

This way we get a player and learn a lesson and aviod a ban with Southampton getting a good financial gain in the process and moving towards building bridges and some form of relationship with them again.

Thanks in advance


{Ed001's Note - that would depend on how much Southampton asked for! If they turned round and said £100m then it would make no sense at all. However that does seem the most sensible way to fix this.}

08 Jun 2017 16:29:34
We should not just walk away! That would just prove we really don't care and would mean we've thrown our apology out of the window. We've broken the rules, got caught. At this point the cost is really irrelevant, we should just pay up, it's the only way Southampton and Virgil are happy, that's the important point, yes we would really really be over paying but that's our fault and nobody else. Showing we can do things right is more important.

08 Jun 2017 17:06:02
I agree with most replies to this, I think we desperately need to build bridges with Southampton and try to rebuild our reputation. I don't know what the fee is but as long as it's under £60million I'd just get it done, maybe throw in Joe Gomez on loan for the season with us paying all his wages etc in as a gesture, that would actually work out well for us if he got game time as he'd progress well down there. Point being we need to put it right.

08 Jun 2017 17:34:22
I agree on that ED01 thinking more if we could say let's give you 50 million and let's be done with the matter but it obviously isn't that straight forward

Cheers for your input ed01.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

08 Jun 2017 17:45:34
Since we are in the business of eating humble pie at the moment, is it not worth driving down to Fulham with some chocolates and a bunch of flowers to try and smooth over any bad blood and get a deal going for Sessegnon?
