WEST Ham have failed in a bid to sign Jason Puncheon on loan.

Saints' main promotion rivals had asked to take the winger to Upton Park on a temporary deal.

However, they were told the 25-year-old is only available on a permanent transfer.

Are they seriously that stupid, trying to loan from the team in the title race with them?

It is time to sell him though.

You'd actually rely on him to fulfill that?

I'd let the Hammers have him He could train with the kids there.

Blimey if Big Sam rates him he must be decent!!!!! Surely if he could go there for a few months and cause unrest in the camp, he could at last play a role for Saints?

Well Big Sam does like the long ball game, so Punch could chase those hoofs down ;)

Saints are playing it dead right. He has made it clear on several occasions he doesn't want to be here with his bad attitude.
Sooner or later no-one will remember him.

Offload.

Actually he hasn't. There was a single spat with the coaches that resulted in him training with the youth team. since then he has been a model professional offering encouragement to the youngsters, giving his all in the games with them and not once whilst he has been out on loan has he said anything derogatory about the club (look at twitter). Agreed he needs to pursue a career elsewhere - he was clearly hurt by the booing he got in the cup game last year - but lets not allow internet trolls to make things up and for other to believe it (not that I'm calling you a troll of course - but there have been on other sites and this has given birth to a lot of myths about him).
