Adam Lallana takes advert in Daily Echo newspaper to say thanks to Southampton fans

Daily Echo: Lallana thanks Saints fans Buy this photo Lallana thanks Saints fans

Former Saints skipper Adam Lallana has taken the bold move of placing a full page advert in today’s Daily Echo to thank the fans for 14 glorious years at the club.

The 26-year-old yesterday sealed a £25m move to Liverpool, and marked his exit from St Mary’s by making the highly unusual gesture as a sign of his respect for the club’s supporters.

Lallana has paid for the full page advert, which appears on page 75 of today’s paper, and has written a message he wishes to deliver directly to the club’s fans, rather than taking the option of an interview.

In the advert, Lallana pays tribute to the club’s supporters and insists his memories of his long spell at Saints will last a lifetime.

Lallana has privately admitted the heartache of leaving the club that has been such a massive part of his life, and his desire to do all that he can to ensure that the fans understand his reasons for leaving and how much they have meant to him down the years.

Lallana made more than 250 appearances for Saints since joining from Bournemouth at the age of 12, and was a vital part of the club’s rise from the depths of League One to eighth place in the Premier League last season.

Saint Jinx says...

That's different to what they are saying on MSN. He apparently said that seeing Liverpool play made the hairs on the back of his neck stand up or something and that deep down he knew he wanted to play for them and that they have different aims, i.e. higher than ours. He is betraying our ideals and dreams IMO. I think he has put the ad here because he is now realising the enormity of what he has done and he is probably a bit scared now. He said that at least the 1st match is not at St Mary's.
Obviously, we don't want to crucify him, because he has done us proud, but it is the volte-face that is so disappointing. He is virtually writing off our chances of ever making the big time - with his words.
He is a good person I am sure but someone has a) convinced him that we will never make it (CL) and b) that his future lies at Liverpool (Gerrard!).

I think enough now.

Adam did well here and we owe him some respect for helping us up the leagues. He also learnt his football here so in return he should be grateful for the opportunity he was given.

He has looked for the money move and got it, he's not the first one and certainly won't be the last. It grates only that it is happening to us and the manner in which it was done - plenty of others at different clubs have done it.

Onwards and upwards and get behind the team - well, whats left of it.

Time to move on. It's a nice gesture to speak to the fans via the echo. The reason we're all finding it hard to deal with is that we, the fans, have invested a lot emotionally in this club over the past five years and we felt we were part of something special. Now we're feeling let down that our key players feel that can get something better elsewhere and as committed Saints fans we find that hard to take. Adam take it as a complement that we're upset as we are - it reflects the contribution you made and your standing in the team.

Back in the Bale days DM co owner Jon Barnett used to park his top of the range sports car on the forecourt outside St Marys. No Car Park (or charges) for him. I think there was also a story in the Echo where he was late leaving after the final whistle and tried to drive through the crowd in Britannia Road until he was stopped by the Police, no rules for the Agents from Stellar they do what they want.

He was our captain so maybe we expected a little more from him. Nevertheless he has gone now and for a huge increase in wages. We do have to thank him for being at the club for 18 years. There arn't many players around who can say that. Sadly for him he has chosen a club which is soon to return to their level of recent years at around 7th, 8th or 9th , especially once Goofy moves on to Barcelona. I think we can replace him for a lot less money and with the right signings can finish above them next season. He won't be missed. There are more rumours today that Brenda is still after Lovren. If its true start at £25mil and offer him around to other clubs as well to start a bidding war.

I'm a Liverpool fan and seeing all this hatred towards Lallana has made me do this...
I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message.

Cheers fo that mate. I's nice ,but very unusual, to get a sensible Liverpool fan on here for a change. I'm afraid you are going to be a little disappointed in your new signing though. Quite simply he isn't a £25 million pound player.

I think that it is a very touching and heartfelt gesture by Adam Lallana. He has been with us for 14 years and has given wonderful service as a player and Captain. His interviews over the years always demonstrated his affection for the club and he showed loyalty when he could, at any time (such as when we were in League 1 or the Championship) have left - as have many other players. Why begrudge him the opportunity to move on to a club where he will have the opportunity to play Champions League football - after spending more than half of his life with us - and at an age when he is approaching his prime? Look at every single player in the World Cup now and every player in every league in the world and you'll see that almost every one of them has almost certainly moved from another club to the one they are currently at. This is what happens in football. It is sad to lose players we love or admire, but it happens - and perhaps we should appreciate gestures such as this - rather than condemn them. How many other players would even have bothered to think to do such a thing? Let's be a little less cynical, a lot more loving and forgiving (if it's even necessary) and look at the positives - we have had 5 fantastic years with an incredible squad, playing attractive, entertaining football - we've reached our highest ever position and had record numbers of players in the England squad, we've got a world class academy with great players coming through, we've got an incredible new manager attracting exciting players to us, we've got players leaving who post messages of heartfelt gratitude to the club and the fans (even thought they don't need to) - what joy!! I personally am grateful for players like Lallana, Shaw and SRL and everything they've done for us - even though, of course, I would have loved them to have stayed - and am really excited about the future - what better time to be a Saints fan. COYR! For God, Harry and St George!!

I haven't said much about what happened, I have had to step back because I found myself getting totally emotional and confused about how I felt about it. Naturally angry at losing one of our best players, but I couldn't understand the nastiness of many posters on this and other sites. No hint of gratefulness for what he had done for us, just some sort of obsession that he was our property, a slave to our whims who is not allowed to have a mind of his own. Not so, he in effect was an employee of our Club, paid to do a job that he was good at, of course he has our Club to thank for getting him into a position where he could better himself financially, which is the path he chose to take.
I am biased, I think he has made a mistake, but only time will tell.
The vitriol expressed by some, reflects on the poster rather than the player, a few need to step back and think about what they are doing, is it the pack instinct which is drawing you into the way you are behaving? It is certainly somewhat over the top at times. What you have to accept is that the player has left, time to thank and forget and move on, he will be replaced by another player, who may well be better, who knows?

It's hardly been brought to it's knees. Try to ignore all the doom mongers on this site. We sill have some very good players, a new manager and a massive transfer kitty which is the envy of most Premier League sides. It might take a little work integrating new players into the side but given where we were a few seasons back I'd say the future is very bright.

His first year in the prem was fairly average, so he has got this move on one good year for us. Liverpool will not carry a player like him when he is injured, so I suspect he will spend a lot of time on the bench. What made Saints great last year was a massive TEAM effort, taking on the big teams and expecting to win. It was great to watch. Time for JWP to step up, Calum to move to the centre and a big opportunity for Matt Target.
I hope Big Ron doesnt fancy Hoover as we dont have enough goals in our side to recover!

Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?

And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.

Thank you as well. You are right that Adam deserves our best wishes and in a way he gets that as we thank him for his past contribution.

But he gets no thanks for the way he departed this club. Difficult for favourite players to upset us Saints' fans, but he really has and will not get a big welcome on his return.

As for Rickie, well he will play for the Scousers but he is in our hearts. We shall cheer every goal he scores, and, not certain, but probably any goal he scores against us.

Top man, you are lucky to have Rickie, a Saints' legend and WE LOVE HIM!!

Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.

I agree with you completely Ameyavichare. It's clear that he's a good person and the criticisms of him are more reflections of the disappointment people feel at his leaving. He was my favourite player and if he and SRL have to go to another club - I'd rather it was Liverpool than North London - so good luck to you for next season - good luck to us and remember what was written by Pete Seeger on his instrument (the musical one, of course - tattooists weren't as skilled in the sixties ) - 'this Banjo surrounds hate and forces it to surrender'.... let's apply the same idea to football!

His first year in the prem was fairly average, so he has got this move on one good year for us. Liverpool will not carry a player like him when he is injured, so I suspect he will spend a lot of time on the bench. What made Saints great last year was a massive TEAM effort, taking on the big teams and expecting to win. It was great to watch. Time for JWP to step up, Calum to move to the centre and a big opportunity for Matt Target.
I hope Big Ron doesnt fancy Hoover as we dont have enough goals in our side to recover!
So Jos is the new scapegoat, as the previous victims have moved on right?

Graham, North of Watford says...

Haven;t seen the article as the Echo doesn't appear North of Watford.

My view is that we can only look forwards, no point in looking backwards as it achieves nothing apart from bitterness and heartbreak.

Can't we agree that nothing will change what has happened and nothing can stop other players from leaving. The Board are not conspiring to do the team down and we will be making some substantial purchases imminently.

Players who leave are not traitors or Judas's they are ordinary blokes in an industry where money is everything.

So I say "The King is dead. Long live the King"

sorry but as I said yesterday this is too little too late. this deal was done on Friday and he new he was going long before that, he did tell the club he would never play for them again! you had plenty of time to get this into yesterdays paper so why wait a day?
we fans have paid a lot of money to watch you play over the last few years and now you want us to pay more so you can say sorry! what about those fans who don't read or cant get the echo? what about our overseas fans, do they not get the `sorry statement`?
you could easily have done an interview with a national paper and put a video online, I suppose you couldn't be bothered. I doubt you wrote this advert either, probably done for you by someone who works in your agents office!
not bothered that you've gone but its the way you went about it. did you think of the fans when you told the club you would never play for them again, were you thinking about the heartache of leaving the club that has been such a massive part of your life whilst you were secretly dreaming of playing for diverpooh?
I said the other day that we shouldn't even boo you when you come down to sms and I stand by that. we the fans you are so sorry to leave should show you how we feel, we can do that by booing your teammates, except rickie, and just falling silent when your name is read out!
there has been an obvious falling out between you and the club and that shows in the OS statements about your holding them to ransom and luke and rickies leaving. you have gone from hero to zero with just a few words!

All I need to know about the man is that he reneged on a deal he had recently made and was happy to have made it at the time. I do not wish him well I hope karma bites his overpaid risshole.

Let's hope as the years go by they don't forget the behaviour Lallana has demonstrated. jls217

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
And don't believe Lallana's public relations officers either. Less than an hour's wage would've paid for the photos of him in the Echo. He was our captain, he had responsibilities, he had loyalties, he had a contract that he had no intention of adhering to and worst of all he didn't have the decency to ask for a transfer last season when he started dreaming of playing football like Liverpool.
Do not make a saint out of a morally weak individual.
Let him go and think no more of him lest he withers your resolve.

As a "smaller club" we are fighting against all of the above. The need to strong leadership and a sense of togetherness is vital, so when the club captain doesn’t address media claims that he has “begged” for a move and publicly states that we will never challenge for anything it is a betrayal and incredibly hurtful.

He may be naive, but this has been dealt with particularly badly.

I suspect Adam knows that when many of us decided to get angry about the manner in which he left - getting angry would at least make us feel a bit better. So now he's trying to make us feel guilty about being angry and I'm very angry about that.

Word is that he's already booked another page to apologise for making us angry about him making us feel guilty about being angry so we'll feel guilty about that too. He knows this will just make us more angry and so he'll book another apologetic page about making us feel guilty about being angry about feeling guilty about being angry.

He could be winding us up for many months - much to the Echo's financial benefit and delight.

We have lost someone we really cared about and every Saints fans took to their hearts…..however before we castigate him for doing what was best for him and his family remember that all the others, Shearer, Wallace's, Ox, Bale, Theo, never gave us anywhere near the service he did …approaching 27 he did alright by us..

I agree with the anger at his praise of LFC which came over in such a fashion that it appeared to disrespect us and send out a poor message to others about our ambition however I would hate to be despised if I gave 14 years service and everyone turned on me for a misplaced remark or two..

All said and done everyone was together under NA and MoPo early doors however a nasty virus has infected our team morale and attitude, the how and the why we will probably never know unless the board or Les spills the beans….

My prime concern is our ability to attract players I understand that at least two quality players have turned us down….allowing our players to go is worrying however not securing quality replacemnts is lunacy and totally inept..

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!

Because he was one year into a five year contract maybe?

Because he had accepted a post of some responsibility to someone other than himself maybe?

Because it was his job to support those above him maybe?

Because it was his job to promote what was good for Southampton FC and in the best light possible maybe?

Because he didn't have the gonads to ask for a transfer and just refused to play football maybe?
The last point is valid and I agree but would be worth checking out the likes of Mick Channon- a true club legend's views on all of this- he doesn't have the same bitterness as many on this site.

Not sure I see how any of the rest is relevant- as i say- being captain doesn't change anything in relation to loyalty. Lowe showed loyalty by being chairman for so long. Didn't do us any good mind.

Not sure I see how any of the rest is relevant- as i say- being captain doesn't change anything in relation to loyalty. Lowe showed loyalty by being chairman for so long. Didn't do us any good mind.

Absolutely spot on. He is an ex-player. Sadly one who I suspect has got taken in by his own publicity. This is all a huge PR mistake on his part - just get the agent to cobble something together and pay out a few quid to the Echo. There is a vast comparison between his exit and Lambert's. Rickie did a lovely interview and the club gave him oceans of space on its website to say his farewells to club, colleagues and fans. He will ever be a Saints hero. And that's how Adam should have gone too. Sadly the very short, sharp statement by the club confirming his departure and nothing more speaks for itself. As does this rather soulless advert. Sad isn't it that, as Abbey Saint points out, this is what the Premier League and everything connected to it does to our game and its players ? They say that in life you are remembered for what you did last in yours. In footballing terms Adam's last act with Saints may come back to haunt him.

If I was a professional football on 35k a week and someone offered me 100k a week to play for the skates I’d tell them where to go! No way would I do that in a million years.
Personally I think everything that needs to be said about this has been covered by everyone above, needless to say I’m disgusted by his actions and the full spread article seems like it fits well with his new ego.

Easily but if someone offered me the same job for double the money, i and everyone else would be of like a shot. My point isn't questioning whether he's greedy or not- he is. What I don't understand is why so many people are surprised he's jumped ship just because he's captain. Being captain means nothing. Rooney is abut to become England captain by all accounts.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!
Twice as long if you keep up these antics Osprey.

Lallana used the Liverpool tv and media to have a dig at our club. There was no need to mention his desire while playing as a Southampton player was to be in the Liverpool team instead and that his hairs stood up every time he thought about playing in a Liverpool team. What was all that about?

Adam, let your words be sweet and tender . . . for next season you will have to eat them.

Actually, on reflection, I have been trying to put myself in AL's shoes. We all have dreams, don't we, and we all want to go off and live an adventure. I don't honestly believe that Saints would have reached the CL until maybe 2017/18, so there he is, training within sight of Sugar Loaf mountain and dreaming of massive matches in Europe. Perhaps we should wish him all the very best and say a huge thank you.

Deep down (and although disappointed ) I don't think anyone would begrudge Adam Lalana his mega bucks move ........if....IF he had done it in the same manner as Rickie Lambert.

Lallana used the Liverpool tv and media to have a dig at our club. There was no need to mention his desire while playing as a Southampton player was to be in the Liverpool team instead and that his hairs stood up every time he thought about playing in a Liverpool team. What was all that about?

Adam, let your words be sweet and tender . . . for next season you will have to eat them.
Personally, though I don't think the ad makes up for the way he left I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say this was a nice sentiment.

Yes, it didn't cost the earth, but he didn't need to do it. Taking the time and effort to arrange it is a decent thing to do.

Fan perceptions are odd aren't they? While I tend to feel the same about Rickie let's not forget he was first out the door and insisted on his move as well, plus by the sounds of it he's been spreading the word about how fantastic Liverpool is to his former team mates too - probably more than likely making recommendations to his new club - so I don't think this love/hate thing is completely black and white.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Cheers fo that mate. I's nice ,but very unusual, to get a sensible Liverpool fan on here for a change. I'm afraid you are going to be a little disappointed in your new signing though. Quite simply he isn't a £25 million pound player.
I feel sorry for the LFC fans if they draw Barcelona or Real Madrid in the CL. That will make the hairs on the back of AL's neck stand up and they will be the real place he wants to play. Still, the way those 2 clubs pay for players, you should be able to make a quick killing on the fee!!!

Easily but if someone offered me the same job for double the money, i and everyone else would be of like a shot. My point isn't questioning whether he's greedy or not- he is. What I don't understand is why so many people are surprised he's jumped ship just because he's captain. Being captain means nothing. Rooney is abut to become England captain by all accounts. Says all you need to know about the job title..... Why doesn't everyone just move on, its happened, nothing can change this
With respect…You may be a manager but you are not on 3m a year already so drawing a parallel between yourself and Adam Lallana doesn’t really seem sensible. Even saying that I don’t think anyone is saying that it is outrageous that he has left. As with everything its how it’s been done

Personally I don’t think that as supporters of a club we invest in, (both fiscally and emotionally) we need to role over and accept that being the captain of that club “means nothing”

I think the difference in the way the club has dealt with Ricky Lamberts departure and that of Lallana illustrates the difference

Whatever Adam Lallana is paying is Agent/PR he is being ripped off. You would do a better job at half the price.

Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!

They are not interested in who they hurt in doing so. Back in the Bale days DM co owner Jon Barnett used to park his top of the range sports car on the forecourt outside St Marys. No Car Park (or charges) for him. I think there was also a story in the Echo where he was late leaving after the final whistle and tried to drive through the crowd in Britannia Road until he was stopped by the Police, no rules for the Agents from Stellar they do what they want. Adam IMO you sold your soul to the Devil when you joined Stellar and started listening to them..
DO you think that Bale's move from Southampton to Real Madrid (via Spurs) has gone badly for him? I wish he was with us still but I think most armchair football people would concede that it has gone ok - having some great experiences and winning trophies and raising his global profile and perhaps improving his football further and raising his stock in the Wales team, oh and Madrid isn't a bad place to live! I wouldn't think Cole feels that winning trophies with Chelsea was a bad move either.

Well said Chipmonk. Osprey, what's not hearsay is that nearly 30,000 of us saw him walk round the pitch after the last match with his hand on the badge over his heart. We read the comments he made about Liverpool, and then there's his hypocritical advert in today's Echo, printed above for all to see ! The truth is out there we've all seen ,read and heard it straight from the horses mouth. I quite understand why the money grabber wanted a transfer but what I cannot understand is the way he went about it. He has shown no respect at all for the club or it's fans . Most supporters will not forgive or forget but after today I hope we'll all move on.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!
Twice as long if you keep up these antics Osprey.
I see you continue to keep up this farce of using multiple logins ad nauseam.
That is not a positive vibe, frankly it’s more ad nauseous.

Multiple posts on here at the same times from your 2 computers is just too obvious, you’ve been rumbled ..... AGAIN!

And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!

I would interested to hear what people think what Lallana should have said..My stab:

I am sad to leave Southampton, I am very proud of what we achieved. Unfortunately I needed to make a decision. I know Saints have plans to achieve great things and I hope they reach there goals, but they might not achieve them while I am playing my best football. The lure of guaranteed Champions League football right now was just too much.

I would be lying if I said that money wasn’t a factor but it was JUST a factor. I could have stayed for a while and moved elsewhere, but the style of football that Liverpool play really matches mine and it a great opportunity. Sometimes you have to consider that the opportunity might not come again. I have had an incredible career so far thanks to Saints and I have no regrets, I wouldn’t like to look back on my career and regret passing up the opportunity to play club football at the highest level.

Its also about time we had a thread RE who will be the next captain...Echo?

What if it were true? He's a young man with a short career who wants to play at the highest level he can!
If the club cannot match an individual's ambition the player will leave....simple equation really.

One disturbing thing about all of this, is that Player power is over ruling the Boardrooms, surely that cannot be good for the beautiful game, I know our Board is new to game, but I don't think we are the only Club where it is happening, greed, agents and disloyalty are ripping the heart out of football.

As you've pointed out it's th equivalent of Stevie G saying a decade ago he wanted to go to Real Madrid where he could win things and how when he played for them whilst at Livepool he wished he could go home on the plane with them to the Bernabue to fulfil his dream. It rankles somewhat.

Gutted!!!!
I have made very few comments on here lately...........
I can honestly say that the team I watched last season was the best Saints team I had seen in over 50 years of supporting.
Never before did we expect to win home or away,such was our optimism.
Never have I ever wanted to watch our national team more.
I never wanted the season to come to an end.
Even with the spectre of Cortesse leaving it all still seemed so promising.
Then it all changed----
We played that FA cup game at Sunderland.
Media speculation that Pochetino didn't want us to win it,the team put out more or less suggested that, added to the negative vibe, which up to this point had never been witnessed before during the season.
Not long afterwards,Jay ruptures his ACL.
"WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON WE'RE GOING TO BRAZIL" rang out!
All looks so hollow now.
Pochetino leaves.
We lost our talisman Rickie--Sprat to catch a Mackerel--- (Lallana)
Luke Shaw fantastic talent leaves too early.
"Our" players hardly get a look in at the WC.
Months of media speculation has left this supporter gutted.
Time to move on-----
Sell anymore want-aways.
Get top dollar, start again with our new management.
Got my season ticket.
Time now to support the players who want to play for our Great club.

Well said Chipmonk. Osprey, what's not hearsay is that nearly 30,000 of us saw him walk round the pitch after the last match with his hand on the badge over his heart. We read the comments he made about Liverpool, and then there's his hypocritical advert in today's Echo, printed above for all to see ! The truth is out there we've all seen ,read and heard it straight from the horses mouth. I quite understand why the money grabber wanted a transfer but what I cannot understand is the way he went about it. He has shown no respect at all for the club or it's fans . Most supporters will not forgive or forget but after today I hope we'll all move on.
When I saw Lallana doing the hand on heart thing, I knew then, that he was going to leave, it came as no surprise when it did happen, I just don't know why and that is part of the problem, it didn't make any sense to me whatsoever.

If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
This is a local Southampton paper not liverpool so you are not welcome on here and if you love sh!tpool that much go and live there fake mug

I still don't see where he and Lambert are going to fit in their side. They have bought two really slow players when last year their strength was how quickly they broke on the counter attack. Give me sterling or couthinio any day over the banana. Good player but never world class. If Saints buy some really quick players I can see us finishing above them. Especially if they lose Hannibal they won't finish in the top four.

Good Grief - what a load of diatribe and vitriol yet again - just like a previous story. Same old same old.

I've said it before and I will say it again! Why shouldn't Lallana, who has given 12 years service to Saints through thick and thin, move on to better things? Liverpool is a much bigger club than ours, they have Champions League and can service their high debts. SFC could never be saddled with such debts because we couldn't service them - simple - it ain't rocket science for god's sake.

Football is a job just like any other profession. The vast majority of humans - given the chance to improve their lives - will move on to pastures new to achieve those aims. There is nothing remotely wrong with that!

Why was Lambert's move not criticised? He's moved on to better things too. What about Shaw - no vitriol there either?

So for all you disgruntled fans I say get over it. Players move on all the time, and Lallana is no different.

Living in the past is a pointless pastime. We have a new manager with seemingly good credentials who must have been aware of the situation unfolding at St Mary's but he still joined up.

I wish Lallana, Shaw and Lambert every success in their new venture. That's it. Now I am eagerly awaiting the new season to see what Ronald K can produce for us. I think we will be pleasantly surprised over the next couple of years. I have faith!

So, you bitter moaning individuals, get over it, look forward not back. You can't change anything, so why waste the energy? So please - as I think Osprey said earlier - give it a bl**dy rest!!

Seems like quite a few fans on here are **** off with AL for wanting to move to L'pool for a very large pay rise and the chance to play for a team that finished 2nd in the PL last season and qualified for CL footy next season. To be fair it seems AL has not handled the issues with regard to PR very well. However, I do not think under the circumstances that his wanting a move is particularly surprising. It’s a short career as a footballer and AL is at an age where he will rapidly become a depreciating asset (this will also be a factor the club will have taken into account with regard to his residual value over the next few years) My view is that he had every right to ask for a move. I also think the club could have said no given he was under contract. Granted, in my experience, individuals do not always behave very professionally in these circumstances (I have no direct knowledge of this particular situation but I am sure it would not be the first time that a highly paid footballer behaved like a spoilt 5-year old when told he could not do just as he wished) but these things tend to wash out over time when the individuals involved have time to think about the issues. Clearly the club decided for a number of reasons it was best to sell. As another poster has pointed out it also seems likely that AL’s transfer was delayed so that it fell into the new financial year for the club – however I would guess it was all agreed some weeks ago. If it were down to me I would do my best to have kept all the key players and build from there but clearly it is not my money and I am just a fan (Sometimes I wish someone had taken me to a Man Utd or Liverpool game when I was 7 instead of a saints game – oh well lol). Anyway the owner of club has decided (apparently) some time ago to go in another direction which appears to involve balancing the books sooner rather than later and involves the club living within its means with no significant new injections of funding from the owner (exit NC, MP, players etc). This and the recent player sales also fits in with the financing restrictions that UEFA have been trying to enforce for a little while (this does not seem to bother some parts of the PL though lol). As a fan I guess we have to adjust our expectations somewhat from the NC days but hey we get disappointments in life and this is just possibly another. As a fan I wish AL (behaving badly or not) well in his future career (when not playing saints obviously) but more importantly hope RK and the new team are lucky and successful. After the recent disappointments, this fan continues to live in hope to one day see CL footy at St Mary’s …….

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.
Similarly, Lallana will start much less regularly than at Saints - his career, too, is faltering while the ink's still drying on the contract.

Saints will finish above the Spuds and Diverpool.

Well said Chipmonk. Osprey, what's not hearsay is that nearly 30,000 of us saw him walk round the pitch after the last match with his hand on the badge over his heart. We read the comments he made about Liverpool, and then there's his hypocritical advert in today's Echo, printed above for all to see ! The truth is out there we've all seen ,read and heard it straight from the horses mouth. I quite understand why the money grabber wanted a transfer but what I cannot understand is the way he went about it. He has shown no respect at all for the club or it's fans . Most supporters will not forgive or forget but after today I hope we'll all move on.
When I saw Lallana doing the hand on heart thing, I knew then, that he was going to leave, it came as no surprise when it did happen, I just don't know why and that is part of the problem, it didn't make any sense to me whatsoever.
The columns are read by Southampton employees (I know because they've told me so) I also know one of them knows the full story behind that lap of honour. Maybe this person can repeat on here what I was told by him in the pub. If I see this person first first I'll ask if I can repeat it or not.

I disagree in terms of Adam - I think he'll play regularly and, if he doesn't, it will be a mistake on Liverpool's part.

Having said that, you don't invest that sort of money not to see him as a starter.

Adam has better stats than Sterling and Courtinho, and a better work rate, so I think he'll be a big hit for them - to give them credit they love good football.

Rickie - yep - I don't think he'll play very much, but I think he's aware of that. Still, he'll have his dream moments and when he does play I have no doubt he will deliver.

Both quality players and would have preferred to see them playing here.

For all those saying he had the right to move on blah blah, which bit do you not get about it's the manner in which he did it? And many of the comments he has made are ill chosen.

Why has he taken out a page in the Echo? Because he has obviously felt the wrath of the fans via social media and feedback from family and friends. Having decided to do it he should have picked a more somber picture staring into the camera, not in a Saints or Liverpool shirt, and he should have taken the opportunity to actually say something about his reasons. The Echo will have charged him for the page not be the amount of words - wasted opportunity by him.

Simple really
Indeed. This idea of us having no control is absolute rubbish as I've said all along. They are contracted and if we are prepared to take the financial hit we can legally stop them joining another club.

This seems harsh, but frankly as stated for months if you let yourself get held to ransom by agents and players the whole team will be breaking down the door wanting to leave (until they lose form or get injured obviously).

If he wants to go on strike that's his career. Nobody forced him to sign.

I now see that we've said we 'are reluctant to sell him' - looks like more of the same from the board unfortunately - slamming the door but leaving a door stop in place.

Simple really
Yes we could, I quite agree. And the likelihood of that?

Whilst we have lost three players the only one I was bothered about more than any was Lambo as I thought he would see his days out with us however good luck to the guy.

The worst part of this whole summer has not just been the loss of influential players but more importantly the loss now of the whole 'team spirit' and 'cemeraderie'. What we had money could never buy and I think this is the biggest reason I am cheesed off as anything. This is going to be one interesting season but for any of us thinking we will finish above Spurs or Liverpool I think a reality check is required.

Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.
Similarly, Lallana will start much less regularly than at Saints - his career, too, is faltering while the ink's still drying on the contract.

Saints will finish above the Spuds and Diverpool.
So you're a good player who can make a decent bank balance playing for Southampton.
Another club offers you Double your Money for five years.
Adam ain't stupid! Thanks for getting the Saints where they are today.

At least Adam has tried to close out his departure more personally than other players. Shaw for instance just upped and went, yet there has been less comments on him going than Adam.
I am not saying I am happy he has left the club to Liverpool, I'm not as he will be a hard act to follow and it was great to have so many English players in the team.
However I am still looking forward to the new season, but we can't go through this every closed season with these so called big clubs poaching our manager and players.
Main thing for me next season is to beat three teams Spurs, Manure and Liverpool!

Simple really
Indeed. This idea of us having no control is absolute rubbish as I've said all along. They are contracted and if we are prepared to take the financial hit we can legally stop them joining another club.

This seems harsh, but frankly as stated for months if you let yourself get held to ransom by agents and players the whole team will be breaking down the door wanting to leave (until they lose form or get injured obviously).

If he wants to go on strike that's his career. Nobody forced him to sign.

I now see that we've said we 'are reluctant to sell him' - looks like more of the same from the board unfortunately - slamming the door but leaving a door stop in place.
Agreed however we have to gamble that the player has some level of professionalism OR that we are prepared to take the hit should he strike. Unfortunately most clubs as soon as there is a sniff of problems sell up (and rightly so really) as an unhappy player is a waste of time having around.

Well said Chipmonk. Osprey, what's not hearsay is that nearly 30,000 of us saw him walk round the pitch after the last match with his hand on the badge over his heart. We read the comments he made about Liverpool, and then there's his hypocritical advert in today's Echo, printed above for all to see ! The truth is out there we've all seen ,read and heard it straight from the horses mouth. I quite understand why the money grabber wanted a transfer but what I cannot understand is the way he went about it. He has shown no respect at all for the club or it's fans . Most supporters will not forgive or forget but after today I hope we'll all move on.
When I saw Lallana doing the hand on heart thing, I knew then, that he was going to leave, it came as no surprise when it did happen, I just don't know why and that is part of the problem, it didn't make any sense to me whatsoever.
Came as no surprise to me either, but the way he treated the fans has ! None do us know what his problems with the club were but as far as I can see he received nothing but praise from the fans apart from maybe saintlysoul ! Hard to believe he has behaved this way towards us but still we must move on. By the way Osprey I've never said you were boring and nor did Chipmonk in this post. I keep any abusive thoughts well and truly to myself.!

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!

Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?

If the national newspapers are to be believed! (the star).
QUOTE (Fuming Southampton insiders claim the club were forced to sell their captain after he told them he never wanted to play for the club again). QUOTE (A club source said: "Adam threw his toys out of the pram and said he would never play for the club again if they did not accept Liverpool's offer. It left a bitter taste)."
If this is true and I've a feeling there is some truth in this, then he is taking the mick out of us and our club. I said earlier that he was not a legend unlike Rickie. This really proves he is just after the money and all his words MUST be taken with a pinch of salt. I hope he plays against us on the first day, I'm sure the lads will give him a hard time. Until now I would have given him a warm reception at St Mary's but not now. Rickie on the other hand has been as open as any player I have Known. All I can say is goodby and never want to repeat his name ever again. It will be who is that fool in that number 20, that's if he plays and as we think he will be a seat warmer.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Different ways of looking at the "rejecting his calls" allegation.

The way you are, as in the board ignoring him.
Or the way I take it, as in the board acknowledged his desire to move on, but then told him they wouldn't discuss it until a new manager had been recruited.
Nothing wrong or sinister in doing that. Why should an employer have to keep repeating themselves, to an employee, if they have already made their position clear?
And for what it's worth, a regular poster on another forum, with access to solid "in the know" information, has been saying for a long time that Liellana is the virtual opposite of the badge thumping/kissing persona, he displayed on the pitch.
Apparently he was a very unsettling influence, in the background, so good luck when he starts getting benched and doesn't perform at his best, which is very likely if he is not at peak, match fitness.
Don't believe idle gossip. The fact that he paid for this advert proves how much the club meant to him. He was a loyal servent to the club.
have you seen this marvellous full page advert that he would have spent sooooo much of his wages on?
if not then have a look, theres a huge pic of him which takes up a third of the page and then very little else. very large font to make up for the fact that there are very few words. i was expecting a long piece where he explained his reasons (maybe not the gritty detail) and a heartfelt apology to the fans for letting them down. instead there are 25 words and a fake autograph, the club and fans meant so much to him that that is al he could say? i doubt he even wrote it!
by the way you wrote nearly as many words as lielana telling us he was a loyal servant, how long did that take you?
as for idle gossip, its the words from his own interview with diverpooh fc! he secretly deep down wanted to play for diverpooh last season! etc. very in the know people have said he told the club he would never play for them again, this as probably been leaked by the club itself, why was his statement about the move on the OS so small compared to luke and rickies?
in case you didn't know lielana hasn't been a `loyal servant` to the club. in fact far from it. this seems to be a myth that's been going around because he has stayed so long, he has helped keep this going. people seem to think that he has turned down offer after offer, he doesn't get to turn them down the club do! Loyal servant my backside, would this `loyal servant` be the same one that has asked to leave at least twice before? is it the same `loyal servant` who refused to play in preseason friendlies because he was trying to force a move through? is this the same `loyal servant` who a year after signing a lucrative new 5yr deal tell the club he will never play for them again? is this the same club that meant so much to him? i think you should look into his past before calling him a `loyal servant` again!
there are ways of moving to new clubs and leaving the old one. luke did ok and although he did let himself down a bit the fans accepted it. rickie was excellent talking to local media at the airport about the move and how sad he was to be leaving, you could actually see the emotion in his eyes. lielana has said and done everything badly and it couldn't have gone any worse for him, i wonder whos been advising him because they aren't very good at their job!
How much longer are we going to have to read all this negative nonsense about Adam? Hasn't this been debated ad nauseam? The subject has been beaten to death, it's become boring for the majority of us. Enough, let it go already!
Twice as long if you keep up these antics Osprey.

Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.

Totally agree. If I were him I wouldn't have taken out the full page spread, but if I did then I would have used it to fully spell out my reasonings whether the club and fans liked it or not, many people appreciate the truth even if it's not what they want to hear.

People forget that these footballers, even the thick ones, are surrounded by advisors charging them a fortune so they don't even have to have the skills themselves just like the politicians and their spin doctors.

There's nothing we can do about it now...I don't many of us would begrudge him a move at this stage in his career if that is what he really wanted but his attitude and mannerism have left a sour taste in the mouth...anyway onwards and upwards..we must stand strong and retain what is left of our core and then start to bring quality players in. How about we talk about players we'd like in. I like the look of the players we have been linked too but also think there are deals to be had on the likes of Caulker, Micah Richards, Nathan Redmond, Michu, Bony et al...We may look different come August but I can't see why we shouldn't be witnessing good football, more goals and to be honest as long as we reinvest well I cant see any of the teams that finished below us managing to better us this season, so throw in a cup final too and I think we'd all think we were still making progress....I know it has been pants over the last few weeks but this time next season who knows perhaps we'll be saying Adam who???

Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.
So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat!
As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro
gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't.

And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue.

If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)

You are certainly adept at using abusive and foul language - I didn't associate such verbal and abusive language from a saints supporter - but I guess it take all sorts. If you have to resort to such offensive language then you certainly don't have much of an argument.

Simple really
Indeed. This idea of us having no control is absolute rubbish as I've said all along. They are contracted and if we are prepared to take the financial hit we can legally stop them joining another club.

This seems harsh, but frankly as stated for months if you let yourself get held to ransom by agents and players the whole team will be breaking down the door wanting to leave (until they lose form or get injured obviously).

If he wants to go on strike that's his career. Nobody forced him to sign.

I now see that we've said we 'are reluctant to sell him' - looks like more of the same from the board unfortunately - slamming the door but leaving a door stop in place.
Agreed however we have to gamble that the player has some level of professionalism OR that we are prepared to take the hit should he strike. Unfortunately most clubs as soon as there is a sniff of problems sell up (and rightly so really) as an unhappy player is a waste of time having around.
You don't have to have him around
Ban him from stadium and training ground
I'm sorry but it's time clubs stood up to these PREMADONAS and made them honour their contracts or at least a good percentage of it
Also ,rather than pay stupid wages,pay half in wages and make it up with an annual loyalty bonus

ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!

Adam you should have chosen your words more carefully in your Liverpool interview. When you talk of hair raising moments watching Liverpool last season, I can recall many such moments with you playing for Southampton. One in particular was away to Man C before Rodrigues got injured, I thought we were magnificent in that game up to that wretched incident. And this is what I don't get, I am sure Southampton would have agreed to pay you more, if that is what you wanted and you would be playing as much hair raising football as any team in the league. It's the bit about joining a club who have won trophy's that's hard to fathom. Your name is not on any of them! and if you think Liverpool has a hope in hell of getting any with an aging Steve Gerrard and no Luis Suarez then I think you are in dreamland. I know we will miss your talents but you are now the competition. Bye Bye and good luck with that mate.

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.
Similarly, Lallana will start much less regularly than at Saints - his career, too, is faltering while the ink's still drying on the contract.

Saints will finish above the Spuds and Diverpool.
I disagree in terms of Adam - I think he'll play regularly and, if he doesn't, it will be a mistake on Liverpool's part.

Having said that, you don't invest that sort of money not to see him as a starter.

Adam has better stats than Sterling and Courtinho, and a better work rate, so I think he'll be a big hit for them - to give them credit they love good football.

Rickie - yep - I don't think he'll play very much, but I think he's aware of that. Still, he'll have his dream moments and when he does play I have no doubt he will deliver.

Both quality players and would have preferred to see them playing here.
Lallana will get games, but it won't be as guaranteed as at Saints and he will sit on the bench a lot more.

I'm more interested in who we're bringing in.
Tadic and Pelle would more than replace traitors Lallana and Lambert.
Matt Target will do a better job than Shaw at defending.
We are a rocket which has jettisoned the Stage 1 engines - RonKo
is at the controls for Stage Two. We are heading for Europe and
we will leave Spuds, Manure and Diverpool in our wake!

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.
Similarly, Lallana will start much less regularly than at Saints - his career, too, is faltering while the ink's still drying on the contract.

Saints will finish above the Spuds and Diverpool.
I disagree in terms of Adam - I think he'll play regularly and, if he doesn't, it will be a mistake on Liverpool's part.

Having said that, you don't invest that sort of money not to see him as a starter.

Adam has better stats than Sterling and Courtinho, and a better work rate, so I think he'll be a big hit for them - to give them credit they love good football.

Rickie - yep - I don't think he'll play very much, but I think he's aware of that. Still, he'll have his dream moments and when he does play I have no doubt he will deliver.

Both quality players and would have preferred to see them playing here.
Lallana will get games, but it won't be as guaranteed as at Saints and he will sit on the bench a lot more.

I'm more interested in who we're bringing in.
Tadic and Pelle would more than replace traitors Lallana and Lambert.
Matt Target will do a better job than Shaw at defending.
We are a rocket which has jettisoned the Stage 1 engines - RonKo
is at the controls for Stage Two. We are heading for Europe and
we will leave Spuds, Manure and Diverpool in our wake!

Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.
So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat!
As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro


gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't.

And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue.

If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)
Would be wonderful if everyone left their place of work on the best of terms, but whether you're a plumbing and heating engineer or a footballer, it isn't always like that. Now as a thickerandmorearroga

ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!
I haven't slated him once you dipshit. I merely commented on how I thought he could have left better, would be best advised not to take out a page in the Echo, but if he were to take a page then to use it effectively. I was expressing an opinion, you then told me to get over it!

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock.

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
Cheers fo that mate. I's nice ,but very unusual, to get a sensible Liverpool fan on here for a change. I'm afraid you are going to be a little disappointed in your new signing though. Quite simply he isn't a £25 million pound player.
Right through the 'five years', it was consistently and noticeably obvious that we were not a cohesive unit when Adam or Rickie were absent from the team. Have we just undervalued them?
I trust our new management team have more than the mixed success their predecessors had in the transfer market, we appear to need to replace our most important players- what price do you put on that?

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.

Rickie - yep - I don't think he'll play very much, but I think he's aware of that. Still, he'll have his dream moments and when he does play I have no doubt he will deliver.

Both quality players and would have preferred to see them playing here.
Lallana will get games, but it won't be as guaranteed as at Saints and he will sit on the bench a lot more.

I'm more interested in who we're bringing in.
Tadic and Pelle would more than replace traitors Lallana and Lambert.
Matt Target will do a better job than Shaw at defending.
We are a rocket which has jettisoned the Stage 1 engines - RonKo
is at the controls for Stage Two. We are heading for Europe and

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.

Exactly - as the World Cup euphoria subsides, It will be slowly sinking in for Lambert that his career, bar the odd Cup appearance, is over.
Similarly, Lallana will start much less regularly than at Saints - his career, too, is faltering while the ink's still drying on the contract.

Just watching Sky Sports and was slightly taken aback to discover that a player we just sold to Liverpool for £4 million was the most influential player in the league last season based on OPTA stats, with Suarez coming in second.

Rickie was apparently involved directly in nearly 50% of our goals, which is staggering and kind of puts to bed any of the people who argued getting £4 million for a 32-year-old was 'good business'. It wasn't.

Good business would have been keeping him until the end of his contract and then putting him on the coaching team.

Having decided to do it he should have picked a more somber picture staring into the camera, not in a Saints or Liverpool shirt, and he should have taken the opportunity to actually say something about his reasons. The Echo will have charged him for the page not be the amount of words - wasted opportunity by him.
Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.
So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat!
As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro



gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't.

And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue.

If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)
Would be wonderful if everyone left their place of work on the best of terms, but whether you're a plumbing and heating engineer or a footballer, it isn't always like that. Now as a thickerandmorearroga


ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!
I haven't slated him once you dipshit. I merely commented on how I thought he could have left better, would be best advised not to take out a page in the Echo, but if he were to take a page then to use it effectively. I was expressing an opinion, you then told me to get over it!

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock. Have a good evening you morearrogantcunt !
Ah a unique insult! You first commented thicktwat suggesting certain fans couldn't quite understand the vitriol aimed at Lallana based on the way he departed (pretty condescending arrogantcunt). I didn't say that you personally slated him thicktwat, but lots of fans have, continually so, non-stop it seems. So as you would encourage certain fans to understand, I would encourage certain other fans to just simply get over it.
Enjoy your beers and next season, I hope both are wonderful.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!
I haven't slated him once you dipshit. I merely commented on how I thought he could have left better, would be best advised not to take out a page in the Echo, but if he were to take a page then to use it effectively. I was expressing an opinion, you then told me to get over it!

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock. Have a good evening you morearrogantcunt !
Ah a unique insult! You first commented thicktwat suggesting certain fans couldn't quite understand the vitriol aimed at Lallana based on the way he departed (pretty condescending arrogantcunt). I didn't say that you personally slated him thicktwat, but lots of fans have, continually so, non-stop it seems. So as you would encourage certain fans to understand, I would encourage certain other fans to just simply get over it.
Enjoy your beers and next season, I hope both are wonderful.

Correct. It was noticed by most of the people I go to St Marys with and meet with after games etc.
Him and Shaw going off early was also a sign of things to come and raised alarm bells with many fans.

Adam shouldn't have started flapping his gums the way he did, it was the height of stupidity. So it's understandable that so many fans have had their little feelings hurt. But i can't help thinking that a fair few of you believe in the modern day footballer having a strong moral compass, like a child believes in Father Christmas.

The majority of modern footballers are driven by fame, Twitter, wearing over-sized headphones and preening their hair. So if you expect such vapid individuals to repay your loyalty, think again!!!

As disappointing as it is to lose SRL , LS and now AL and potentially others, we should remember that these have all contributed hugely over a period of time so my question is When does Mr Krugger start contributing in his role of a leading our Football Club? His performance to date is certainly of a bottom three CE in the Premier League.

MOVING ON - We all know JUDAS (MP) sold us short and should have got in a FREE SCORING STRIKER in the January window and another No 1 KEEPER - We all know that he shifted blame in the FA CUP and underperformed when WEMBLEY was waiting. He WILL NOT and CANNOT be forgiven for SUNDERLAND AWAY.

UNDER KING RON KOEMAN - We MUST secure a TOP STRIKER - Cover for TOP STRIKER (poss ex Championship) and another interchangeable NO 1 KEEPER. We MUST get in a FREESCORING Midfielder and a LB.

Additionally we must LOOK at Cover for CB and furthermore a PACY SCORING WINGER to give the Gaffer more Options.

SAINTS FANS are so motivated to take the FIGHT to Spuds - Liversh!te etc and have a REALLY SUCCESSFUL SEASON.

Regarding developing ENGLISH TALENT - that no longer becomes the Priority - why develop Sam Gallagher OR JWP for them to leave and be the FEEDER CLUB to Manure - Liver sh!te or Arse-NIL. COYR

I think the two kids that were with you in the family stand have to learn a lesson from this... There are very, very few players that stay with one club all through their career and Saints fans know all about that! I have been a saints fan since 1974 and I will be a Saints fan when I'm on my death bed and I'm sure we will all have much to sing about and much to **** about in that time and beyond...Lets get behind the players that remain at this club and remember the ones that have left with admiration for what they did for us while they were here.

The thing the boy seems to have not understood is the context.
If this had been while we were in League One, and Liverpool came in for him, in a way I'd be more sympathetic with all the " hairs on my neck stood up" or " dreamed of playing for them" or " great opportunity at a huge club" stuff, but the fact that he's just been central team finishing 8th, with arguably the best youth system in the land, with a hugely exciting future ahead of us, makes it unforgivable that he's spat his dummy, and made such ludicrous statements, expecting people to just say " fair enough".
He's forgotten that he was captain / leader..but who's to blame? These agents that apparently represent him, MoPo, and alot the others? Bet THEY'VE done great out of this...

I know many of you are really hurt over losing your captain, even I would be if we did lose Gerrard back in 05. Adam is 26 and he's a late bloomer. Southampton can even match their expectations of European football but that would need time. I think that you lot should be happy that Adam has sent you a message. If it was Suarez (and this is going to happen) he would be sipping margaritas in Barcelona by now without any sort of guilt. Maybe Adam did say that "I don't want to play for Saints" but that happened after the Board were rejecting his calls for him to speak to them.
I'm not trying to tell who's right and who's wrong. It's all perception. I'm just saying maybe Adam who's played for you for 14 years deserves your best wishes because a part of him still loves everyone of you even though he can't really say it.
I myself loved watching Saints last season and hope your new manager can match the fans expectations. Thank you.
This is a local Southampton paper not liverpool so you are not welcome on here and if you love sh!tpool that much go and live there fake mug
A twät of the highest order! This is how you respond to a perfectly expressed opinion from a real football fan.
You are an embarrassment to any true follower of Southampton Football Club.
St Winch - I totally agree with you! Well said.
He's also clearly a Pompey fan trying to give us a bad name, just ignore him. The 'never before seen' user name gives it away. The initial poster is the first genuine Liverpool fan we've had on here and is clearly talking a lot of sense - genuine fans always welcome IMO.
He's not a Pompey Fan, Saints Fan or any other fan. He / Her is just an embarrassment to ANY decent football club & it's supporters.

Just one more thing; I have been reading through some of the comments on here and one thing we all have to remember is this

Players come and go

Managers come and go

Owners come and go

Supporters..........
...They stay and do what they do best SUPPORT their team.

For all those saying he had the right to move on blah blah, which bit do you not get about it's the manner in which he did it? And many of the comments he has made are ill chosen.

Why has he taken out a page in the Echo? Because he has obviously felt the wrath of the fans via social media and feedback from family and friends. Having decided to do it he should have picked a more somber picture staring into the camera, not in a Saints or Liverpool shirt, and he should have taken the opportunity to actually say something about his reasons. The Echo will have charged him for the page not be the amount of words - wasted opportunity by him.
Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.
So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat!
As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro







gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't.

And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue.

If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)
Would be wonderful if everyone left their place of work on the best of terms, but whether you're a plumbing and heating engineer or a footballer, it isn't always like that. Now as a thickerandmorearroga






ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!
I haven't slated him once you dipshit. I merely commented on how I thought he could have left better, would be best advised not to take out a page in the Echo, but if he were to take a page then to use it effectively. I was expressing an opinion, you then told me to get over it!

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock. Have a good evening you morearrogantcunt !
Ah a unique insult! You first commented thicktwat suggesting certain fans couldn't quite understand the vitriol aimed at Lallana based on the way he departed (pretty condescending arrogantcunt). I didn't say that you personally slated him thicktwat, but lots of fans have, continually so, non-stop it seems. So as you would encourage certain fans to understand, I would encourage certain other fans to just simply get over it.

I notice that all of this is going on while he is hiding away on hoilday. Adam I hope you read the comments posted here. These are true Saints Fans. People who put you where you are now. You need to learn respect and that there are ways and means of doing things when there are other peoples feelings involved. I have only been attending Saints games for the last 5 years.( since I meet and married a die hard fan) so I can't class myself in the same class as some of these people.
You couldn't wait to get away quick enough. But I also think that the England manager had a great deal to do with these moves to Liverpool. Wouldn't look rite for so many England players to come from a small team like Southampton. I feel that there is a great deal gone on behind closed doors that the Saints Management had nothing to do with. But Liverpool and England Manager knew a great deal about. Just wish someone would ask the question. Adam I think you have let your love of money and the big times rule you. Just hope you don't get to many splinters in your backside . Or worst still become an Andy Carroll MK2.

Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential.
Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.
God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat !

SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?
No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore.
So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat!
As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro









gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't.

And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue.

If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)
Would be wonderful if everyone left their place of work on the best of terms, but whether you're a plumbing and heating engineer or a footballer, it isn't always like that. Now as a thickerandmorearroga








ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts.

This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.
I'm just sick of this slating and poisonous nonsense that's being directed to a player that only weeks ago was better than Messi, but now he's ****!
I haven't slated him once you dipshit. I merely commented on how I thought he could have left better, would be best advised not to take out a page in the Echo, but if he were to take a page then to use it effectively. I was expressing an opinion, you then told me to get over it!

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock. Have a good evening you morearrogantcunt !
Ah a unique insult! You first commented thicktwat suggesting certain fans couldn't quite understand the vitriol aimed at Lallana based on the way he departed (pretty condescending arrogantcunt). I didn't say that you personally slated him thicktwat, but lots of fans have, continually so, non-stop it seems. So as you would encourage certain fans to understand, I would encourage certain other fans to just simply get over it.
Enjoy your beers and next season, I hope both are wonderful.
St.Whinge70 - You seem to be making a habit of ruffling peoples feathers on here lately don't you.
Everything you say or every opinion you have aren't the only answer or correct. They are your opinions based on what you think. Other people also have opinions which is their god given right to express, right or wrong. So do us all a favour will you. Wind your neck in and try to respect other peoples opinions without sounding so self f@cking righteous and smug to boot.
You may even make a few new friends.
COYR FOADP
Can't wait for the new season to start.
Thanks for your advice knöbhead, please don't take offence if I ignore it...I'm sorry if my opinion doesn't sit well with you, but I don't comment on here to try to make friends.
I generally stick to facts, which opinions aren't, so please feel free to stick your opinion up your ärse.
You're probably better sticking your own over-sized head up your own baggy @rse. That way you could not just hear the sh!te you come out with but you could also eat sh1t you dullard.

Sssh..go trade insults with someone else you infantile little cöck.
Awwwwhhh...is St. Wincy getting all upset and brave..LOL
Don't like it back at you do you sh1t for brains.
See my previous quote. Thanks for jumping in on an exchange that had nothing to do with you though. Busy little worm. You're not intelligent enough or significant enough to upset me, but please keep trying if you wish. I think the original poster is more than capable of 'looking after himself' and wouldn't need some wannabe super hero internet twät defending him. So run along now you irritating 'brave' wänker, I'm done with you.

I met the bloke a few times at sponsors dinners etc and never got the impression he was arrogant, always came over as a modest lad to me. Loved watching him play but yes don't feel particularly warm towards him at the moment. I wouldn't buy him a beer but I'm off to buy myself several as it's beer o'clock. Have a good evening you morearrogantcunt !
Ah a unique insult! You first commented thicktwat suggesting certain fans couldn't quite understand the vitriol aimed at Lallana based on the way he departed (pretty condescending arrogantcunt). I didn't say that you personally slated him thicktwat, but lots of fans have, continually so, non-stop it seems. So as you would encourage certain fans to understand, I would encourage certain other fans to just simply get over it.
Enjoy your beers and next season, I hope both are wonderful.
St.Whinge70 - You seem to be making a habit of ruffling peoples feathers on here lately don't you.
Everything you say or every opinion you have aren't the only answer or correct. They are your opinions based on what you think. Other people also have opinions which is their god given right to express, right or wrong. So do us all a favour will you. Wind your neck in and try to respect other peoples opinions without sounding so self f@cking righteous and smug to boot.
You may even make a few new friends.
COYR FOADP
Can't wait for the new season to start.
Thanks for your advice knöbhead, please don't take offence if I ignore it...I'm sorry if my opinion doesn't sit well with you, but I don't comment on here to try to make friends.
I generally stick to facts, which opinions aren't, so please feel free to stick your opinion up your ärse.
You're probably better sticking your own over-sized head up your own baggy @rse. That way you could not just hear the sh!te you come out with but you could also eat sh1t you dullard.
Lightweight
Sssh..go trade insults with someone else you infantile little cöck.
Awwwwhhh...is St. Wincy getting all upset and brave..LOL
Don't like it back at you do you sh1t for brains.
See my previous quote. Thanks for jumping in on an exchange that had nothing to do with you though. Busy little worm. You're not intelligent enough or significant enough to upset me, but please keep trying if you wish. I think the original poster is more than capable of 'looking after himself' and wouldn't need some wannabe super hero internet twät defending him. So run along now you irritating 'brave' wänker, I'm done with you.
Funny how you keep coming back for more though isn't it Rocky??
You keep throwing your toys out of the pram like the spoilt br@t you appear to be.
Sad lightweight tw@t
Oh and it's a forum for Saints related news so it's got everything to do with me you mug

And many of the comments he has made are ill chosen. Why has he taken out a page in the Echo? Because he has obviously felt the wrath of the fans via social media and feedback from family and friends. Having decided to do it he should have picked a more somber picture staring into the camera, not in a Saints or Liverpool shirt, and he should have taken the opportunity to actually say something about his reasons. The Echo will have charged him for the page not be the amount of words - wasted opportunity by him.[/p][/quote]Get over it he's just a player that chose to leave the club we support. he's not irreplaceable - far from it! All these fans crying into their beer about it blah blah, should just accept that he's gone, the manner is inconsequential. Most seem deeply hurt like they've been deserted by a family member, personally, I could care less how many words, if any, that he chooses to relay thanks, appreciation, regret or sorrow. Life goes on, so does Southampton Football Club.[/p][/quote]God you're an arrogantcunt. People who give up their weekends to go home and away and pay a lot of money is these hard times are going to feel a sense similar to bereavement when players are queuing to leave the club they love. If they feel no emotion they wouldn't be fans in the first place you thicktwat ! SFC certainly goes on - but will it achieve the ambitions that seemed so much closer a few short weeks ago?[/p][/quote]No more arrogantacunt than some thicktwat who wants to continually bang on about some stranger that they feel betrayed by and seems unwilling to accept the fact that like most footballers, this stranger at some point decided he no longer wanted to work for his employer. An even thickertwat would feel a sense of bereavement because a footballer doesn't want to play for their team anymore. So thickcunt, what bit do you not get about the fact that he's gone? - Move on thicktwat![/p][/quote]As an employer we have had people move on, we often have a lunch or an evening out to say goodbye to them and wish them well. As a verythicktwatandarro gantcunt you just wouldn't get that. It's about doing things nicely. For example if Rickie went out in Southampton this weekend people would buy him a beer, do you think Adam would get the same reception? When Rickies playing days are over he will stay in Liverpool, Adam won't. And this was my first comment on it. I have been banging on about a lack of ambition by the board leading to this queue. If it means so little to you, why do you go? (Assuming you do)[/p][/quote]Would be wonderful if everyone left their place of work on the best of terms, but whether you're a plumbing and heating engineer or a footballer, it isn't always like that. Now as a thickerandmorearroga ntcunt are you saying that Adam Lallana can now only be slated and not remembered for his contribution to the team? I would buy him a beer in Southampton if I saw him, as I suggest would many more less arrogantcunts. This maybe linked to our board now not being able to match the ambition and drive that was here in the reign of NC, I have expressed similar concerns. This fear has been tempered somewhat by the appointment of RK and the feeling I have now, assuming we keep Spiderman and Lovren and with a couple of additions, the loss of Lallana and Shaw will be inconsequential and puts us in no worse a position than where we were last year and one which we can build upon.

DO you think that Bale's move from Southampton to Real Madrid (via Spurs) has gone badly for him? I wish he was with us still but I think most armchair football people would concede that it has gone ok - having some great experiences and winning trophies and raising his global profile and perhaps improving his football further and raising his stock in the Wales team, oh and Madrid isn't a bad place to live! I wouldn't think Cole feels that winning trophies with Chelsea was a bad move either.
Exactly. Got a bit heated in here on wednesday, didn't it?
