Southampton's Rickie Lambert close to sealing shock move to Liverpool for £4m plus add-ons

Saints fans were tonight coming to terms with the shock news that star striker Rickie Lambert is closing in on a dream move to Liverpool.

The Reds are understood to be confident of finalising a deal for the 32-year-old, having offered about £4m up front, plus add-ons.

Liverpool are already chasing Saints captain Adam Lallana, having lodged a £20m bid for the midfielder, while they are also plotting a move for centre-half Dejan Lovren this summer.

There was no confirmation from St Mary's about a deal for Lambert, who is under contract until 2016, and nothing is thought to have been agreed as yet.

But it is clear that talks have been taking place and that Liverpool are confident of tying up the transfer.

Bristol Rovers, Lambert's former club, are also said to possess a sell-on clause, meaning a proportion of any fee will have to go to them.

The news comes as a blow to Saints chairman Ralph Krueger, who insisted this week that all dealings were on hold until a new manager was appointed, following Mauricio Pochettino's departure for Spurs.

While the club may yet delay the move until a replacement for the Argentine is installed, the fact this has come out does not reflect well on them.

For Lambert, born in Kirkby, Merseyside, the move would be a dream one.

The forward is a huge Liverpool fan and has a Liver bird tattooed on his shoulder.

He was once let go by the club as a schoolboy, but now his career looks set to go full circle.

His departure will be met with great sadness by Saints supporters, though, with Lambert having become a hero on the south coast.

He has been an enormously influential figure over the past five years, since joining the club for £1m from Bristol Rovers in 2009.

His scoring record is sensational, having netted 117 times in 235 appearances for Saints.

He has also converted a perfect 34 out of 34 penalties.

Lambert played a pivotal role in dragging the club up from League One and eventually to the top half of the Premier League.

He was the joint-top English scorer in the Premier League during the 2012/13 season - his first at that level - with his 15 goals that term being followed by another 13 in the top-flight this time around.

That form earned him a first call-up for England last summer, with Lambert experiencing a dream debut, scoring the winner in a 3-2 victory against Scotland at Wembley, coming off the bench to net with his first touch.

He ultimately earned a place in Roy Hodgson's squad for this summer's World Cup, although there are now doubts over whether he will be heading to Brazil as a Saints player or a Liverpool one.

I for one would be gutted but wouldn't begrudge him the move it must be a boyhood dream for him to play for them and £9 million for a 32 year old is fantastic money.
Good luck Rickie and thanks for everything !!!!!

Absolutely gutted for us if this happens. But good luck to Rickie - certainly wouldn't begrudge him this move. He's been an absolute star for us and will ALWAYS be a SAINTS LEGEND whatever.
Also £8 million for a player who's probably only got a year (or two at most) left is, it must be said, good business.
J Rod will have to be told he's going nowhere and we'll still have to bring in another decent striker. Sam is not there yet so we can't rely on just him and Jay.

J Rod did an interview on his rehab, then he's off to Spurs. Wanyama in the media and he's off to anyone in the Champions League, Rickies in the press and he's off to Liverpool.
Steven Davis had a bit in the media today, no doubt he'll be linked to another team soon.
If the rumour ends up being true, I would actually be happy for Rickie, he's earned it.

Cue the conspiracy theorists. Cue the asset stripping theorists. Cue the ignorant who can only insult whilst not knowing the facts. This is a great bit of business if the fee is £8-9 million. Rickie thoroughly deserves this last move and though it would leave us without a striker I think Les Reed might possibly be aware of that fact. JRod's injury is a concern as we don't know if he will be coming back 100%. So we can be looking forward to a couple of new strikers at the least. Can't wait.

Correct me if I am wrong but only yesterday RK said we are in control of all our players contracts and we don't need to sell unless it suits us and of course the manager will have the last say in who goes and who stays so on that statement have we appointed a new manager?

Good luck Rickie you deserve it you are a saints legend .
Now the board must act and act quickly and appoint one of these top names that are interested in becoming our new manager before the world cup .
The ship needs to be steadied sooner rather than later .
Left till after could be to late as pre season will be around the corner .
The new manager will need time to bring in new players and if all the stories turn out to be true then we might need a few .
We don't need to start next season with a team hastily put together at relatively short notice , things need to start happening in the next week not just to steady the ship but to put everyone's minds at rest including the players and us fans who like myself are starting to feel a little uneasy .

I'm afraid the dismantling of the squad has begun, the board will sell to the best offers. Its money that speaks,and its going to be a tough time for fans.

Lambert has been Saints talisman, he is a force in the dressing room and on the pitch. One cannot but be happy as its his boyhood club. Yet it seems strange where are they going to play him, with Suarez and Sturridge up front and Sterling slotting in behind? He would spend most his time on the bench and that does not sound like Ricki.One has to agree its at 8 million its a good price considering his age but with his influence gone, the boarding may well be kjicking off the fire sale they want to avoid.
Krueger did say on his interview with SKY that there would be transactions this summer, but only ones they wanted.

I hate to say it but I'm beginning to get very worried about next season. Lamberts going and Lallana's probably going, that's 90% of our goals and assists gone, Shaw's almost gone and Lovren's wanted, that's our sturdy organised and pacy defence ruined! Poch has left and we have a chairman who seems weak and clueless. He also lies during statements and sounds like he knows nothing about football. To top it off we're after oscar garcia. Unfortutely i think they may get a shock next season when we're not in the top half at christmas compared to beingbin the top six last season!

When we get relegated the board are just going to say - well at least we made a profit - ive been very relaxed until now but Kruger has blatantly LIED to us - theres no way this deal only happened today - yesterday when Kruger had his interview this deal was being negotiated - we are being mugged over.
I'm fully awake thanks. I just don't get my knickers in a twist every time a story appears on here. As I said previously MoPo was unheard of 2years ago and now he's the best manager we ever had because he got a very talented group of players to eighth . Plenty other managers out there. The offer for Rickie is too good to refuse. He's been a fantastic talisman but one of the oldest players in the squad. Also replaceable. In answer to your question yes I do think we will be bringing in quality players. No one had heard of Lovren, he was unliked at his previous club and cost £7.5 million. Nat Clyne cost next to nothing. Of course they can be replaced. (If they go). And as for your final statement of getting relegated but making a profit for goodness sake put your brain into gear. The following season we (they) would lose £80million SKY money. Now that's some master plan. Congratulations on having worked it out.

Just when the national media are starting to cool with headlines such as where will Lallana fit in the Liverpool team etc. Where will Rickie fit in I smell some mischief making by some of the national media's journo's trying to save face, if it is true then maybe liverpool is setting a sprat to catch a mackerel comes to mind but who knows and it might be said that RK is getting mixed up with champions league and the FA's championship.

exactly what was Lamberts score rate this season? Why has no one mentioned this could be a good move for both player & club?
A player who's not scoring many in play goals( not penalties) & who has a few years left get's a good pay out/pay packet & the club get some money for him.

Bit strange that it's only one bookmaker that has had all those bets, and this comes, the day after a more positive statement from Krueger aimed at calming the waters. Every time we get a statement to quell the rumours and to put a positive slant on the goings on at St Mary's something like this comes out . So maybe a rich bloke who knows the inner workings of football and finance and has an axe to grind with Southampton fc, could manipulate the odds with a string of bets knowing full well the press would go nuts like they did when Lallana and shaw was supposedly going but are still here. This stinks to me and won't believe it until it's on the OS.

apparently we want £25mill for lalla (not enough in my book) but if that's the case we would lose £6.25mill to allmouth and leave us with £18.75mill. if you allow for the fact that SRL is worth say £5mill (again not enough for my liking) then your taking £5mill from the lambert deal off the lalla deal leaving £20mll, allmouth would then get £5mill. a saving of £1.25mill which is no where near enough compensation for selling SRL.

Like I said we are being had over
It happens in football that when teams like ours raise their head above the parapet then the big teams will come in for our best players. Stopping that is like trying to stop the tide coming in. The trick is in how you rebuild and that's what I'll judge Ralph and Les on.

From the non-sporting appointments Ralph talked about yesterday it's clear the aim is for a sustainable and well-run club aimed at getting into Europe. The picture is bigger than next season - it's about the next ten years. And that is the very opposite of asset stripping.

So cool your jets and just see what happens, eh? Whining on here will do literally nothing to change what's happening in any event.

Liverpool are building a team to take on Europe and to do that they buy a 32 year old player who hasn't scored a decent goal from open play for quite a long while.
Sorry, but I find this incredible.
If it does happen and we get more than £3m we will have done good business because that will be enough for us to buy several lookeelikee's from lower divisions and mould them into replacements.
Before any of you start namecalling, I have a season ticket and I have sung Rickie's name at the top of my voice from my seat.
The fact is that at that price we have to call it good business and it is the one club that Rickie would love to play for.


Support the Saints,
through thin and thinner until we turned it around and got to the Prem and then all sorts jumped on the bandwagon.

So maybe a rich bloke who knows the inner workings of football and finance and has an axe to grind with Southampton fc, could manipulate the odds with a string of bets knowing full well the press would go nuts like they did when Lallana and shaw was supposedly going but are still here. This stinks to me and won't believe it until it's on the OS.
Well reading all these posts, it looks like that rich blokes destabilizing tactics, of all things Saints. And turning the fans against the board and owners is working a treat. Some people on here need to look at the evidence of a concerted effort to play with the fans minds, and stir up as much negativity as possible by manipulating the press and putting rumour and player unrest out there.

Wake up Dick
The facts? MOPO gone - SRL apparently close - lovren shaw lallana all almost definitely going - you really think we are going to buy like for like replacements?
When we get relegated the board are just going to say - well at least we made a profit - ive been very relaxed until now but Kruger has blatantly LIED to us - theres no way this deal only happened today - yesterday when Kruger had his interview this deal was being negotiated - we are being mugged over.
I'm fully awake thanks. I just don't get my knickers in a twist every time a story appears on here. As I said previously MoPo was unheard of 2years ago and now he's the best manager we ever had because he got a very talented group of players to eighth . Plenty other managers out there. The offer for Rickie is too good to refuse. He's been a fantastic talisman but one of the oldest players in the squad. Also replaceable. In answer to your question yes I do think we will be bringing in quality players. No one had heard of Lovren, he was unliked at his previous club and cost £7.5 million. Nat Clyne cost next to nothing. Of course they can be replaced. (If they go). And as for your final statement of getting relegated but making a profit for goodness sake put your brain into gear. The following season we (they) would lose £80million SKY money. Now that's some master plan. Congratulations on having worked it out.
Andysaint. Are you the little boy who sits behind me at St M cost he does my f'in nut in every game moaning and whining....
Well that told him. You're a joke!
To be honest Redandy10, it was a toss up between you and him so your a bit premature in your celebrations... Ooh, inadvertently managed to get the words toss and premature in the same sentence! I think they call it a Freudian slip haha.

Heres another one for you too - Harrison Reed to Liverpool as well - absolutely 100% - deal done - so ok selling 32 yr old RL to his boyhood club can be justified they are selling our future as well. Im sure you can put a positive spin on that

Only problem is little Lee if Lambert goes to Liverpool then There is a good chance that Lallana will follow him.Your judas manager will be crying in to his Argentinian wine, COYR.
Lallanas ours.the gaffer has said as much.he'll follow maurittcio to the promised land you wait and see and you wont be getting no £20 million. No youse will get what we say hes worth,that feeder club negotiating stuff wont wash with the Spurs.
Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but even if Lallana left with the supposed 25 million being asked for from are board we could buy 3 players for the same posistion from Spain, any way lets not get ahead of are selfs just yet seeing as we lost more games under Pochy than we did under Adkins we also lost more games from winning posistions under Pochy than we did under Adkins also if you check the scores we had under Adkins when he was at the club then cross them over with pochys i personaly feel we did better under Adkins and also had a plan b and c, yes we closed down more and had slightly more possesion under pocky but for me Adkins should have stayed. i doubt Lallana will leave Saints for Spurs when you have the same ambitions as us also yeah you got pochy but.... you only waved money under his nose to tempt him away does not signal stability in my biew and he will either be off for a pay rise or get sacked in 6 - 12 months any way so you will be in are posistion next year dont worry but then you have a poisoned chalic that no one wants to take charge off hench the appointment of pochy and not a champions league manager? hahahaha . P.S any player leaving Saints for shity spurs will be making a sidewards step and only moving for money which says an awful lot about the type of players you have in your team all for money nothing from the heart, we will finish above you next year so you can look up at us while your manager gets sacked.

It happens in football that when teams like ours raise their head above the parapet then the big teams will come in for our best players. Stopping that is like trying to stop the tide coming in. The trick is in how you rebuild and that's what I'll judge Ralph and Les on.

From the non-sporting appointments Ralph talked about yesterday it's clear the aim is for a sustainable and well-run club aimed at getting into Europe. The picture is bigger than next season - it's about the next ten years. And that is the very opposite of asset stripping.

So cool your jets and just see what happens, eh? Whining on here will do literally nothing to change what's happening in any event.
Cobblers. Rebuild to what purpose? In your world if we successfully rebuild we will be raped again before success comes.

Latest score;
Happy clappers 0 Merchants of doom 1
If Ralph fails to save this penalty it will be 0-2
If the happy clappers can convince the rest of the squad that low pay and no european football is best, they might be able to salvage something from this.

More and more happy clappers are now joining Costa Gaz and Redandy and waking up to the realism that the team of 2013/14 is being ripped to pieces.

They are still defending with plenty of thumbs down and ridicule , but deep down they know that the doom mongers were right all along.

Come on happy clappers, join us and realise that there will hardly any of our current 1st team squad left by August, stop hanging on to every word that comes out of Ralphs mouth., be brave and face the truth.

Everything points to Liverpool doing a three-in-one deal (Lambert-Lallana-Lov
ren) as a way to get the main target while reducing the amount that Soton will have to hand over to Bournemouth - 25%. So the idea seems to be Lallana is valued at 20m with Lambert valued at 4m plus about the same in add-ons but the add ons are really Lallanas if you follow. When that money is transfered to Soton they keep it all.

We are being raped, and our own board is holding us down as they invite others to join the party for handsome fees...

I was actually starting to believe I was wrong, but now I am almost certain the owners have identified asset stripping as their most rewarding strategy. After our top established talent has gone, we can expect an actual sale of the club. The outside chance of remaining in the Premier League will command an additional windfall.

Lambert might be nearing the end his career, but his assists and his goals for us this season were worth much more than 8 million! Then there is the team spirit to consider. The man is clearly the center of all that is good at the club. His smile is contagious! The dressing room and the training field will not be the same without him. Why should the others not go now?

I was looking forward to the World Cup with 3 Saints doing us proud. Now I fear we might not have anyone to represent us, and I hear the cheers of Tottenham, Liverpool, and Manchester United fans as Lallana, Lambert, and Shaw do them proud...

If there is anything we can learn from this, it is that we are nothing. We have no power. So relax, lay back, and take some more....

Wake up Dick
The facts? MOPO gone - SRL apparently close - lovren shaw lallana all almost definitely going - you really think we are going to buy like for like replacements?
When we get relegated the board are just going to say - well at least we made a profit - ive been very relaxed until now but Kruger has blatantly LIED to us - theres no way this deal only happened today - yesterday when Kruger had his interview this deal was being negotiated - we are being mugged over.
I'm fully awake thanks. I just don't get my knickers in a twist every time a story appears on here. As I said previously MoPo was unheard of 2years ago and now he's the best manager we ever had because he got a very talented group of players to eighth . Plenty other managers out there. The offer for Rickie is too good to refuse. He's been a fantastic talisman but one of the oldest players in the squad. Also replaceable. In answer to your question yes I do think we will be bringing in quality players. No one had heard of Lovren, he was unliked at his previous club and cost £7.5 million. Nat Clyne cost next to nothing. Of course they can be replaced. (If they go). And as for your final statement of getting relegated but making a profit for goodness sake put your brain into gear. The following season we (they) would lose £80million SKY money. Now that's some master plan. Congratulations on having worked it out.
And every day another major figure in our success follows NC out the door - how much crap are we going to take before the 'don't panic' brigade realise whats happening?
We have been blatantly lied to so what makes you think anything kruger said about quality coming in is true? Heres my bet- Garcia or Malky as manager with low quality championship standard additions - Ings ect
Like I said we are being had over
Every day? Really. Perhaps you could run us through a list of the 14 major players in our success that we have lost in the last 14 days as my memory seems to be failing me.
Heres another one for you too - Harrison Reed to Liverpool as well - absolutely 100% - deal done - so ok selling 32 yr old RL to his boyhood club can be justified they are selling our future as well. Im sure you can put a positive spin on that
If it were true and I doubt it very much, Harrison Reed played only a minute part in last season's success, so I'm a little confused as to how this is affecting the strength of our side. Perhaps we have received a very attractive offer for him. As you are party to the inner workings of the club perhaps you could also inform us of the price. After all if it's 100% done the price must have been agreed.

The board have no intention of getting in a top manager it is more likely to be a Wigley or the flying Dutchman quality that we have of getting a quality manager. None of the new board have any football experience except Reed and he has failed at everything he was involved in. Do not believe anything the board tells you.

Like I said we are being had over
It happens in football that when teams like ours raise their head above the parapet then the big teams will come in for our best players. Stopping that is like trying to stop the tide coming in. The trick is in how you rebuild and that's what I'll judge Ralph and Les on.

From the non-sporting appointments Ralph talked about yesterday it's clear the aim is for a sustainable and well-run club aimed at getting into Europe. The picture is bigger than next season - it's about the next ten years. And that is the very opposite of asset stripping.

So cool your jets and just see what happens, eh? Whining on here will do literally nothing to change what's happening in any event.
Cobblers. Rebuild to what purpose? In your world if we successfully rebuild we will be raped again before success comes.
Totally agree Seed,what is the point of having arguably the best accademy in football,whose sole purpose(supposedly)i
s to find,nurture and train the young talent which will provide the parent club with the players to achieve success for itself,if the end product is continuously snatched away,before ever achieving the success it was intended to provide?
Totally pointless,and to think only a fortnight ago,all we were talking of,were the new GK,CB and striker,which we all knew was all that was needed to step up another level in the coming season.
I truly hope all that still happens,but it won't be as easy as it would have been,only such a short time ago.

This may have already been said but I can't be bothered to read through all the posts at the moment to check. Why if Sky Sources are saying 9Million are the Echo only saying 4m plus add ons. We all know the Echo are anti-Saints but come on can't people tell the truth anymore. All these lies and speculation is getting tiresome. I think the FA needs to pass a rule that bans undisclosed transfer fees and that ALL clubs must disclose the exact fee and terms of a purchase publically once the deal is completed.

Well, if this is true then we might need to stop all our efforts commenting on these going-ons. For SRL this would be good and even a reward to play for his home team. Top end fee one have to say would be good business, but a dreadful disappointment to the fans. He is not called SRL for no reason!

But I see BBC text mentions the move and comments that "Lambert is intent on leaving St. Mary's this summer". Don't know about you but this is news to me, unless it is based on an assumption he DID want to join West Ham.

Doesn't make sense to me outside of that though as he is gonna struggle to get past Sturridge and Suarez for a regular place.

One thing though if Koeman becomes our manager does that mean I have to forgive him for that red card incident and goal that cost England?

Cobblers. Rebuild to what purpose? In your world if we successfully rebuild we will be raped again before success comes.
Yes, we probably will. That's going to be our lot in life and it's what clubs like Atletico Madrid have to deal with every single season and yet still they flourish. We're always going to have to work harder and smarter than the big boys because we're never going to have the fanbase of a Liverpool or United.

The key is getting a brilliant structure in place so that we can deal with this, which is what Cortese was moving towards and what the new board is improving upon.

If true, and I guess it probably is, this is a disgrace. Forget his age, the guy is good enough to get on the plane with England and he's wise enough to adapt his game, as he's already shown. That a side, if Krueger can seriously send out a message late yesterday knowing this is in the pipeline he must be determined to get hate figure status within six months - wipe out our entire England contingent before the tournament - if so, thanks for ruining our summer.

Personally I didn't even consider Rickie leaving - as an older player we couldn't get much of a fee for I imagined we'd not think about selling - how can we possibly replace him for even £9 million? Add ons spoken about - he's 33 for fecks sake, what are they going to be.

He's worth £9 million for his deadballs.

It's embarrassing.

Note Sunderland and Derby make a clear firm move the day after anyone is linked with a move - no chance, no point in asking.

Sad to say, but I have to admit the owner and the board may well be as bad as people have made out, which is a shame for people who wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt.

There is as yet no definitive proof so unlike how I felt in the aftermath of MP leaving this time I am keeping my powder dry to use a phrase I saw on hear and trusting the board and KL until proven otherwise. I respectfully suggest you do the same or stop following Saints
Yes I am a Saints fan, was a season ticket holder at the Dell from 1969-80. Then moved abroad. There are rumblings within the business community in Berne that KL wants to sell. It is partly why NC left. They may be only rumours at the moment but time will tell.

Judging by the other fans posts on here you would appear to be in the minority. Weren't you one of those who were bleating on about players having contracts, quoting Les Reed? You're the last person who should be shouting the odds on here, I suggest you slink away.
Friend, all I did was humourously write, "What a load of clap, redandy10!!!" Please lighten up before you have a heart attack!

We are all entitled to our opinions, whatever they may be. This forum is all about differing views. Quite frankly, I am completely uninterested in your judgmental words about me being in any minority because everyone's opinion is of equal validity.

I freely express my opinions. I do not bleat. That is what sheep do!

Regarding contracts, compensation is often paid by buying clubs in football. Saints have obviously been compensated by Tottenham for MoPo. It does, however, remain a fact that a large number of player and manager contracts are honoured in football and elsewhere in business. Contracts provide guidelines and points of reference, should people be bought or sold.

You mentioned me quoting Les Reed, but I am not guilty of your accusation. I have great faith that Southampton FC is in safe hands.

We are only a little way into the close season and people are already talking doom and gloom about Saints. You mentioned a domino effect. The close season is the normal time of year when football clubs part company with some players and coaches and then seek out their replacements. Your take on this process seems very negative, whereas I'm optimistic that Saints will be improved for next season.

Please have faith that the aim of Katharina and her board of directors is to continue the upward progression of the club. I recall Ralph Krueger having the vision of turning Saints into a sort of Premier League football version of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. I have been to Green Bay and seen for myself what has been achieved at Lambeau Field and the idea of such a concept applied to Saints is very, very exciting.

You can make all the derogatory comments you want towards me, redandy10, and they are like water off a duck's back, but please do yourself a favour and lighten up about Saints.

Players and coaches always come and go. I think we should look at the bigger picture and observe the remarkable growth of our club during the last five years. We should also see that the ambition at St. Marys remains the continued growth of Southampton FC.

Rickie Lambert might well be sold to Liverpool. If that becomes fact, then he will go to Anfield with my grateful thanks. He has been of great help to the growth of our Saints. Rickie's sale should never be viewed as part of a domino effect, mass offloading of all Saints' best players. That whole idea is preposterous.

You can suggest all you want that I slink away, redandy10, but I shall continue posting on this forum as I see fit.

You should please note that I have refrained from using any insulting words towards you and that I have also not commented about the quality of your writing on this thread. I am interested only in opinions and welcome yours. Please welcome mine.

Onwards and upwards, the Southampton Way!!!

Best wishes RL you will be sadly missed.

According to RK we, presumably the Board, control the transfer of players. If that is the case are saints players at a point where they do not have confidence in the new structure and will look for stability and a future elsewhere. If this is so, then I would question the statement that the Board are in control, obviously they are not.

Yes I am a Saints fan, was a season ticket holder at the Dell from 1969-80. Then moved abroad. There are rumblings within the business community in Berne that KL wants to sell. It is partly why NC left. They may be only rumours at the moment but time will tell.

Totally wrong Epsom, you will end up being extremely disappointed when the worst case senario happens, whereas I am expecting it and won't feel so much pain.
Believe me, I want Saints to keep all of these fantastic players and for us to continue our progress, but we cannot do this when we pay the 5th lowest wages in the league.... this is where we are at, we batted way above our station last season and it was brilliant, but now we have become victims of our own success. Optimism, pessimism.... me, I go for realism.
I have been villified by the happy clappers on here for calling everyhting right so far and not believing anything our directors tell us.
Sincerely hope I have everything wrong.

Sign on sign on with a pen in your hand cos you'll never get a job. You can sign our players if you like we'll just produce more, but let's face it you had your big chance this season and blew it, a one hit wonder top six at best for you next year
It's going to be interesting next season when Saint's are relegated ?

Angus, you're the voice of reason on here tonight (along with Ret and 101). I'd like to expand and add a reasoned point of view but half a bottle of consumed Rioja stands between my brain and my finger tapping. So, I'll just hit the sack and dream about waking up to the latest Sky transfer news that JWP is set to sign for his boyhood team in a £30m move ..................

Judging by the other fans posts on here you would appear to be in the minority. Weren't you one of those who were bleating on about players having contracts, quoting Les Reed? You're the last person who should be shouting the odds on here, I suggest you slink away.
Friend, all I did was humourously write, "What a load of clap, redandy10!!!" Please lighten up before you have a heart attack!

We are all entitled to our opinions, whatever they may be. This forum is all about differing views. Quite frankly, I am completely uninterested in your judgmental words about me being in any minority because everyone's opinion is of equal validity.

I freely express my opinions. I do not bleat. That is what sheep do!

Regarding contracts, compensation is often paid by buying clubs in football. Saints have obviously been compensated by Tottenham for MoPo. It does, however, remain a fact that a large number of player and manager contracts are honoured in football and elsewhere in business. Contracts provide guidelines and points of reference, should people be bought or sold.

You mentioned me quoting Les Reed, but I am not guilty of your accusation. I have great faith that Southampton FC is in safe hands.

We are only a little way into the close season and people are already talking doom and gloom about Saints. You mentioned a domino effect. The close season is the normal time of year when football clubs part company with some players and coaches and then seek out their replacements. Your take on this process seems very negative, whereas I'm optimistic that Saints will be improved for next season.

Please have faith that the aim of Katharina and her board of directors is to continue the upward progression of the club. I recall Ralph Krueger having the vision of turning Saints into a sort of Premier League football version of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. I have been to Green Bay and seen for myself what has been achieved at Lambeau Field and the idea of such a concept applied to Saints is very, very exciting.

You can make all the derogatory comments you want towards me, redandy10, and they are like water off a duck's back, but please do yourself a favour and lighten up about Saints.

Players and coaches always come and go. I think we should look at the bigger picture and observe the remarkable growth of our club during the last five years. We should also see that the ambition at St. Marys remains the continued growth of Southampton FC.

Rickie Lambert might well be sold to Liverpool. If that becomes fact, then he will go to Anfield with my grateful thanks. He has been of great help to the growth of our Saints. Rickie's sale should never be viewed as part of a domino effect, mass offloading of all Saints' best players. That whole idea is preposterous.

You can suggest all you want that I slink away, redandy10, but I shall continue posting on this forum as I see fit.

You should please note that I have refrained from using any insulting words towards you and that I have also not commented about the quality of your writing on this thread. I am interested only in opinions and welcome yours. Please welcome mine.

Onwards and upwards, the Southampton Way!!!
Thank heavens. Somebody else with some common sense. I was beginning to despair.

Rickie represents everything that's good about English football - Spirit, determination, character, all alien concepts to you I'm sure.

You represent the moronic pursuit of glory through a process of flinging inflated amounts of money at overrated imported non-entities, with one or two exceptions. You paid £2 million for a man with one year left on his contract whose most expensive signing was an Argo/Italian nut job. He doesn't rate the Europa league or the FA cup and was sacked by Espanol . We've finished higher in the league than you (2nd 1984) than you bunch of 'North London yobbos' have achieved since since Nicholson.

If he goes, best of luck, He wants to play for his hometown club, full circle. Your inept chairman will sack Pochettino within 15 months and pay him £8m in compensation. You dumb Muddy Funsters.

I remember us selling Kevin Keegan, Mick Channnon, Steve Williams, Steve Moran, Tim Flowers, Alan Shearer, The Wallaces, Bridge and Bale. When Moran left thought it was the end of the World and swore vengeance on Nicholl - it wasn't, I continued going to games. The Nicholl era I now look back on fondly.

Life will go on and this terrible affliction, being a true football fan, will continue to persecute me. Maybe one day, holes like you will understand.

Wake up Dick
The facts? MOPO gone - SRL apparently close - lovren shaw lallana all almost definitely going - you really think we are going to buy like for like replacements?
When we get relegated the board are just going to say - well at least we made a profit - ive been very relaxed until now but Kruger has blatantly LIED to us - theres no way this deal only happened today - yesterday when Kruger had his interview this deal was being negotiated - we are being mugged over.
I'm fully awake thanks. I just don't get my knickers in a twist every time a story appears on here. As I said previously MoPo was unheard of 2years ago and now he's the best manager we ever had because he got a very talented group of players to eighth . Plenty other managers out there. The offer for Rickie is too good to refuse. He's been a fantastic talisman but one of the oldest players in the squad. Also replaceable. In answer to your question yes I do think we will be bringing in quality players. No one had heard of Lovren, he was unliked at his previous club and cost £7.5 million. Nat Clyne cost next to nothing. Of course they can be replaced. (If they go). And as for your final statement of getting relegated but making a profit for goodness sake put your brain into gear. The following season we (they) would lose £80million SKY money. Now that's some master plan. Congratulations on having worked it out.
And every day another major figure in our success follows NC out the door - how much crap are we going to take before the 'don't panic' brigade realise whats happening?
We have been blatantly lied to so what makes you think anything kruger said about quality coming in is true? Heres my bet- Garcia or Malky as manager with low quality championship standard additions - Ings ect
Like I said we are being had over
Every day? Really. Perhaps you could run us through a list of the 14 major players in our success that we have lost in the last 14 days as my memory seems to be failing me.
Heres another one for you too - Harrison Reed to Liverpool as well - absolutely 100% - deal done - so ok selling 32 yr old RL to his boyhood club can be justified they are selling our future as well. Im sure you can put a positive spin on that
If it were true and I doubt it very much, Harrison Reed played only a minute part in last season's success, so I'm a little confused as to how this is affecting the strength of our side. Perhaps we have received a very attractive offer for him. As you are party to the inner workings of the club perhaps you could also inform us of the price. After all if it's 100% done the price must have been agreed.
Don't listen to him he's winding u up, I know harrisons dad, pretty sure he would of told me.

half the team leaves with lesser voices left and a new manager , that might be the plan

with sam as back up and possibly cheaper 10m say 3 striker

hopefully if this sort of cost cutting is the plan then money saved can be used to keep jrod, lovers, clyyne etc

As a lifelong Saints fan I can see that this is all demonstrating once again that Southampton FC is a small club and will never be able compete with the so called 'bigger' clubs.

Rickie Lambert's situation is slightly different and nobody could deny him this opportunity at this stage in his career. But his arises really because of a chain of events that started with the new Board screwing up over the Pochettino business - and arguably over Cortese, which may have been the catalyst for that.

It looked like Saints were going places. Decent manager, sound finances, pressing on in the League and players would have a reason to stay and players would have a reason to come to Saints.

Throw the balls up in the air by losing our manager and all of a sudden everything changes. Saints look vulnerable so the bigger clubs swoop in. Players are (quite rightly) unsettled and more inclined to go. A naïve new chairman will be easy pickings - as will Saints.

In my opinion the Board knew Pochettino was lost several weeks ago. At that point they should have lined up a replacement.

Lets be honest, Saints are not short of cash and neither was Pochettino. So anybody leaving is doing so for reasons not due to money. What this tells me is that things are seriously wrong (and weak) behind the scenes and we are about to pay a heavy a price.

I wish Rickie Lambert all the very best - I can fully understand his reasons if he decides to go.

If I was running the show right now at Saints I'd be moving heaven and earth to get a quality (and I mean quality) manager in. I'd say hands off regarding Lallana, I might consider a big money deal for Shaw (although I'd rather not) and anyone else under contract I'd tell other clubs to go away.

I freely express my opinions. I do not bleat. That is what sheep do!

Regarding contracts, compensation is often paid by buying clubs in football. Saints have obviously been compensated by Tottenham for MoPo. It does, however, remain a fact that a large number of player and manager contracts are honoured in football and elsewhere in business. Contracts provide guidelines and points of reference, should people be bought or sold.

You mentioned me quoting Les Reed, but I am not guilty of your accusation. I have great faith that Southampton FC is in safe hands.

We are only a little way into the close season and people are already talking doom and gloom about Saints. You mentioned a domino effect. The close season is the normal time of year when football clubs part company with some players and coaches and then seek out their replacements. Your take on this process seems very negative, whereas I'm optimistic that Saints will be improved for next season.

Please have faith that the aim of Katharina and her board of directors is to continue the upward progression of the club. I recall Ralph Krueger having the vision of turning Saints into a sort of Premier League football version of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. I have been to Green Bay and seen for myself what has been achieved at Lambeau Field and the idea of such a concept applied to Saints is very, very exciting.

You can make all the derogatory comments you want towards me, redandy10, and they are like water off a duck's back, but please do yourself a favour and lighten up about Saints.

Players and coaches always come and go. I think we should look at the bigger picture and observe the remarkable growth of our club during the last five years. We should also see that the ambition at St. Marys remains the continued growth of Southampton FC.

Rickie Lambert might well be sold to Liverpool. If that becomes fact, then he will go to Anfield with my grateful thanks. He has been of great help to the growth of our Saints. Rickie's sale should never be viewed as part of a domino effect, mass offloading of all Saints' best players. That whole idea is preposterous.

You can suggest all you want that I slink away, redandy10, but I shall continue posting on this forum as I see fit.

Thanks for your appreciation, Clever Dick.

Please don't despair. I fear that common sense will remain in short supply for a while longer until the very positive words spoken by Les and Ralph on behalf of Southampton FC are reinforced by positive actions in the form of manager and player acquisitions.

The doom mongers, some of them real Saints fans, seem to be enjoying their gloomy predictions of disaster about Saints right now, but I believe their apparent celebrations are both premature and temporary. I reckon they are premature and temporary because Saints will before long acquire a new manager and coaches, plus some good players.

This close season is going to be a very interesting one at St. Marys and I am certain of one thing. The media continue saying that all Saints' best players will be sold. That is NOT going to happen. All football clubs sell one or two of their better players from time to time. Saints will sell only when it suits them and when it helps the improvement of the club.

Reds close in on deal for Southampton striker Rickie Lambert

Rickie Lambert is on the brink of a dream move to Anfield after Liverpool FC launched a surprise bid for the Southampton striker.
The Reds have tabled an offer of £4million plus add-ons for the Kirkby-born boyhood Kopite and are confident of securing his services.
The ECHO understands the 32-year-old England international will be offered a two-year contract and club officials hope the transfer will be completed in the next 48 hours.
Lambert, who began his career in Liverpool's youth ranks before being released at the age of 15, is desperate to make the switch to Anfield and is prepared to push through the transfer.
He is part of England’s World Cup squad and is currently preparing for Friday night’s friendly with Peru at Wembley.
Liverpool want him to undergo a medical and sign a contract before he flies off to Miami with Roy Hodgson's men on Sunday to continue their preparations for Brazil.
Ricky Lambert in action at Anfield
Lambert would be the Reds' first signing of the summer and more are likely to follow swiftly.
Liverpool have tabled a £16million bid for Sevilla's Alberto Moreno and are willing to offer Spanish youngster Suso as a makeweight in the deal.
The ECHO revealed earlier this month that Spain international Moreno is Brendan Rodgers' prime left-back target.
Rodgers is also chasing Lambert's Southampton clubmates Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren.
The Reds' £20million offer for midfielder Lallana was rejected by Saints, while they have yet to make a formal approach for Croatian centre-back Lovren.
If Liverpool don't make a breakthrough in their pursuit of Lallana then they will turn their attentions to Bayern Munich's Xherdan Shaqiri.
They have also pursued Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can and are willing to meet the £10million release clause in his contract. However, they have so far been unable to agree personal terms with the Germany Under-21s international and could walk away from that deal.
The move for Lambert, who has a tattoo of the Liver Bird on his shoulder, has come out of the blue.
The 6ft 2ins frontman worked his way up through the lower leagues after being released by Liverpool as a teenager.
He had spells with Blackpool, Macclesfield Town, Stockport County, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers before signing for Southampton in 2009.
Lambert, who is under contract until the summer of 2016, helped them clinch back to back promotion en route to the top flight and is a fans' favourite on the South Coast.
He has scored 117 goals in 235 games for Saints, including 13 strikes in the 2013/14 Premier League campaign.
Rodgers is keen to have four frontline strikers in order for the Reds to be able to cope with the added demands of Champions League football next season and believes Lambert fits the bill.
With Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge for company, plus Fabio Borini back from his loan spell at Sunderland, he is unlikely to be a regular starter but he will provide a different attacking option.
Lambert's arrival would also accelerate the departure of Spanish striker Iago Aspas, who has no future at Anfield after a disappointing first season at the club following his £8million switch from Celta Vigo.
Lambert's age and aerial prowess makes him a surprise addition to Rodgers' squad.
However, before the Reds faced Saints at Anfield last September the Northern Irishman paid a warm tribute to the striker, who had recently scored on his England debut against Scotland.
“I think Rickie is a terrific player,” said Rodgers.
“I sent him a fax when he made his England debut as I know he is a big Red. I sent it on behalf of the club and all Kopites.
“He is a Kirkby boy and I was just wishing him well, saying we were all proud of him playing for England.
“He’s probably never got the recognition for what a really good footballer he is. He is probably seen as a traditional big number nine, a typical British striker, but he’s one of the most accomplished footballers I’ve seen.
“Look at his touch and the different types of goals he scores, he is a terrific player.
“'People look back now and say it was a mistake (by Liverpool to let Lambert go), but there may have been something at the time that was a factor.
“He just might not have been ready for what Liverpool was at that time, but there is absolutely no doubt within development it cannot just be about what the player is now. With young talent you always have to look at what they could be.
“You see so many young British players who are thrown to the garbage because maybe they are not strong or they are not quick when they are going through growth spurts. The emphasis at younger ages should be technique. But I have been a big admirer of Rickie.”

Lambert, who is under contract until the summer of 2016, helped them clinch back to back promotion en route to the top flight and is a fans' favourite on the South Coast. He has scored 117 goals in 235 games for Saints, including 13 strikes in the 2013/14 Premier League campaign. Rodgers is keen to have four frontline strikers in order for the Reds to be able to cope with the added demands of Champions League football next season and believes Lambert fits the bill. With Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge for company, plus Fabio Borini back from his loan spell at Sunderland, he is unlikely to be a regular starter but he will provide a different attacking option. Lambert's arrival would also accelerate the departure of Spanish striker Iago Aspas, who has no future at Anfield after a disappointing first season at the club following his £8million switch from Celta Vigo. Lambert's age and aerial prowess makes him a surprise addition to Rodgers' squad. However, before the Reds faced Saints at Anfield last September the Northern Irishman paid a warm tribute to the striker, who had recently scored on his England debut against Scotland. “I think Rickie is a terrific player,” said Rodgers. “I sent him a fax when he made his England debut as I know he is a big Red. I sent it on behalf of the club and all Kopites. “He is a Kirkby boy and I was just wishing him well, saying we were all proud of him playing for England. “He’s probably never got the recognition for what a really good footballer he is. He is probably seen as a traditional big number nine, a typical British striker, but he’s one of the most accomplished footballers I’ve seen. “Look at his touch and the different types of goals he scores, he is a terrific player. “'People look back now and say it was a mistake (by Liverpool to let Lambert go), but there may have been something at the time that was a factor. “He just might not have been ready for what Liverpool was at that time, but there is absolutely no doubt within development it cannot just be about what the player is now. With young talent you always have to look at what they could be. “You see so many young British players who are thrown to the garbage because maybe they are not strong or they are not quick when they are going through growth spurts. The emphasis at younger ages should be technique. But I have been a big admirer of Rickie.” search for the truth

Thanks for everything Ricky. You will be missed, you bought more to the team than just goals. OMG! Who will take our pens? We are all concerned about the future of our club, as fans all we can do is trust the Board, support the team and see how the season pans out. Pointless criticising until we have seen evidence of the implementation of the new 5 year plan. I see we are being infested by posters from the corrupt club down the road. Many pretending to be supporters of other clubs, Spuds for example. Don't give them the satisfaction of responding to their pathetic, jealous rubbish. I have no doubt we will continue to have the last laugh. COYR!

I don't believe we would consider an approach from any other club and I don't think Rickie would either. As a Liverpool lad and supporter he would find it difficult to turn such a move down however, and I think any fan can understand that. It would be wrong for our club to stand in his way and I think letting him go is a thanks and recognition of all he has done for our club. I, and I'm sure all Saints fans, wish him well and will always welcome on any return. I'm certain he'd never need to buy his own beer anywhere around Southampton.

Judging by the other fans posts on here you would appear to be in the minority. Weren't you one of those who were bleating on about players having contracts, quoting Les Reed? You're the last person who should be shouting the odds on here, I suggest you slink away.
Friend, all I did was humourously write, "What a load of clap, redandy10!!!" Please lighten up before you have a heart attack!

We are all entitled to our opinions, whatever they may be. This forum is all about differing views. Quite frankly, I am completely uninterested in your judgmental words about me being in any minority because everyone's opinion is of equal validity.

I freely express my opinions. I do not bleat. That is what sheep do!

Regarding contracts, compensation is often paid by buying clubs in football. Saints have obviously been compensated by Tottenham for MoPo. It does, however, remain a fact that a large number of player and manager contracts are honoured in football and elsewhere in business. Contracts provide guidelines and points of reference, should people be bought or sold.

You mentioned me quoting Les Reed, but I am not guilty of your accusation. I have great faith that Southampton FC is in safe hands.

We are only a little way into the close season and people are already talking doom and gloom about Saints. You mentioned a domino effect. The close season is the normal time of year when football clubs part company with some players and coaches and then seek out their replacements. Your take on this process seems very negative, whereas I'm optimistic that Saints will be improved for next season.

Please have faith that the aim of Katharina and her board of directors is to continue the upward progression of the club. I recall Ralph Krueger having the vision of turning Saints into a sort of Premier League football version of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. I have been to Green Bay and seen for myself what has been achieved at Lambeau Field and the idea of such a concept applied to Saints is very, very exciting.

You can make all the derogatory comments you want towards me, redandy10, and they are like water off a duck's back, but please do yourself a favour and lighten up about Saints.

Players and coaches always come and go. I think we should look at the bigger picture and observe the remarkable growth of our club during the last five years. We should also see that the ambition at St. Marys remains the continued growth of Southampton FC.

Rickie Lambert might well be sold to Liverpool. If that becomes fact, then he will go to Anfield with my grateful thanks. He has been of great help to the growth of our Saints. Rickie's sale should never be viewed as part of a domino effect, mass offloading of all Saints' best players. That whole idea is preposterous.

You can suggest all you want that I slink away, redandy10, but I shall continue posting on this forum as I see fit.

You should please note that I have refrained from using any insulting words towards you and that I have also not commented about the quality of your writing on this thread. I am interested only in opinions and welcome yours. Please welcome mine.

Onwards and upwards, the Southampton Way!!!
You're not just a Saints fan, you're a breath of fresh air...
It was such an eloquent and well reasoned post I read it all, which normally I don't have the interest to read the mini essay posts...Nice one sir/madam!
Thanks SnapperSaint. I have a positive outlook on life. There is no point in believing all the media's bull manure about Saints right now, as there will soon be good news coming from St. Marys. The dark years for Saints ended five years ago. We have had five great years, thanks to Saint Markus and Katharina. Being an optimistic and greedy guy, I look forward to many more such years!

Up the Saints!!!

Liverpool Melwood training ground is waiting for you Ricky ! ! !


Bill Shankly once described it as “a sorry wilderness”.
When the legendary Liverpool FC boss was shown around Melwood following his appointment in 1959 he was shocked by the state of the dilapidated training ground in West Derby.
He said: “One pitch looked as if a couple of bombs had been dropped on it. ‘The Germans were over here, were they?’ I asked.”
It boasted an old cricket pavilion with no heating alongside a crumbling air-raid shelter.
Shankly set about revolutionising the place during his reign and 55 years on the site now boasts a state-of-the-art facility.
Every day during the season hundreds of fans gather outside the iron gates hoping to catch a glimpse of their heroes and bag a few prized autographs as the players head for home.
This summer, while Brendan Rodgers’ stars either take a well earned break or go in search of glory in Brazil, the doors have been thrown open with supporters given the opportunity to go behind the scenes at Melwood.
The tour provides a fascinating insight into the daily lives of the manager and his players.
It begins outside the frosted glass front of the building which is adorned with a giant Liver bird. It’s the spot where Liverpool will parade their new signings when the players return to duty in July.
From there knowledgeable guide Alan Herr leads everyone into the media room where Rodgers faces the world’s press on a weekly basis. The room is also used for team meetings with a giant screen available for video analysis.
Then it’s into the plush reception area where there are two striking permanent fixtures.
Fittingly, close to the main entrance sits a bronze bust of Shankly with the quote: “Above all, I would like to be remembered as a man who was selfless, who strove and worried so that others could share the glory, and who built up a family of people who could hold their heads up high and say ‘We are Liverpool’.”
It’s the first thing players and staff see on their arrival each morning closely followed by a gleaming European Cup encased in a glass box to provide inspiration.
“It was Rafa Benitez’s idea to put it there,” said Herr. “But that’s just a replica, the real one we got to keep in 2005 is in the museum.”
Below the trophy is a quote from the Spaniard: “To me, being part of Europe’s elite is central to this club’s ethos.”
Then it’s through the usually locked door and into Melwood’s inner sanctum. First stop is the boot room – the traditional black and white footwear of the coaching staff in stark contract to the array of colours favoured by Luis Suarez and co on the opposite rack.
This is where players put on their special vests which have a built in GPS system that collects a multitude of statistics on speed, distance, heart rate, accelerations and decelerations.
It’s especially useful in pre-season but is also used throughout a campaign to tailor training schedules and help identify the risk of injuries.
There are three outdoor pitches which are served by 23 miles of undersoil heating. The middle pitch which has exactly the same dimensions as Anfield – 101 metres by 68 metres – is currently being relaid. Melwood also boasts an indoor 3G surface.
The tour takes you into the physio room and the vast array of medical equipment and then past the hydro pool used for rehabilitation and into the gym.
Motivational quotes adorn the walls from Muhammad Ali’s “I hated every minute of training, but I said ‘don’t quit, suffer now, and live the rest of your life as a champion” to Michael Jordan’s “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”
Rodgers recently described Raheem Sterling as his ‘Man of Steel’ and tour guide Herr revealed that the stats back that up.
“Raheem is the quickest in the squad and pound for pound he’s also the strongest player,” he said.
The modern complex has been around since 2001 and the design was heavily influenced by then manager Gerard Houllier.
The Frenchman wanted to ensure players stayed around after training and hit the gym before continuing up the stairs and into the canteen where the squad eat together.
“It’s not free though,” revealed Herr. “All the staff and even the players have to pay for their meals. It’s taken out of their wages each month.”
There is also a giant TV screen surrounded by sofas and pool and table tennis tables.
With so much of the past celebrated around Melwood, Rodgers has put some focus on the present by having a montage put on the wall of iconic images from his reign to date.
From there, it’s out on to the landing in front of the manager’s office where the pictures aren’t of star players but the club’s famed support.
“A lot of thought has gone into it,” Herr said. “This is the last thing the players see before they head down the stairs and out to the coach or to their cars. It’s about reminding the players who they are playing for.”
Tours, which include a mini-tour of Anfield and return transport to Melwood from the stadium, run every day until 22 June 2014 and cost £30 for adults and £15 for children. For further information go to www.liverpoolfc.com/
