    No, too expensive, don't think he'll maintain current standards and most of all, I don't think he'd be half the player anywhere but Chelsea. He's 90% passion and commitment, and much of that would go at a different club. Hard to think of many English players who'd be less of a fit for our squad.

    Football wise in a heart beat and he would be great for the youngsters to learn their trade from.

    However the older players in their last couple of seasons, isn't the type of player we seem to go for.

    Then of course there is all the personal baggage that comes with him and we would be seen as far to high risk, from a team spirit perspective.

    No, no, no, no, no.

    I'd pass.
    tbh, if he doesn't stay with Chelsea, I can see some foreign teams in leagues like USA take him on.

    Apparently taken a 50% wage cut from his 160k (?) pw to gain another contract at Chelsea.

    He would want to run the train set, like he did at Chelsea.

    Except he's the best CB in the premier League so it matters not what club he's at... we would not take him due to his age and wages

    Thought I made the point clear enough, IMO he won't be half the player anywhere but Chelsea because he's such a Chelsea fan. It's not a criticism of him, just something I believe.

    And he's not even a fraction of the player Kompany is, he's just played very well compared to how he struggled last season. People are so often blinded by the performance of CBs in very defensive sides. Having 2 or more good defensive midfielders helps a HUGE amount. I remember when people thought Johnson and Dann were a brilliant partnership due to few goals against, but in reality they played with 9 men behind the ball all the time.

    Terry has been good this season, but people don't half get carried away.

    I agree with adrian. It would not be possible for him/anyone to have passion or commitment for a club you didnt support.

    He should therefore join Man United as thats the club he supports

    There will be loads of clubs after him. Clubs coming up from the Championship (QPR excepted) and the PL sides desperate to survive.
    I don't think we're that desperate.

    I can't even understand why people are suggesting this.

    Although he may turn up to the Saints FC awards tonight in full kit, to claim his trophies.

    Happens fairly regularly on here. Identify a player who once was genuinely world class but is now old and in decline, and suggest "HCDAJFU".

    I feel bad enough about myself that John Terry is in my fantasy league team, never mind the team I support.

    I remember when we were in league one and current England international and football writers player of the year Scott Parker was suggested as a realistic possible signing.but then those were the days when MLG told us we were the most attractive side for a player outside of the top 4 in the premier league so I can see why people might have thought it.

    If his wages wern't too stupid and he was willing to come here, we'd be silly not to

    He would want the team to be all about him and that's the complete opposite of the attitude we're trying to instill in our team. He is aging, would only be a temporary stop gap and I doubt he would put half the effort in he does for Chelsea.

    No.

    You ever got that friend who likes to nitpick whenever you use the term 'we' to refer to Southampton F.C, the team and their results and smugly tell you that the players are utterly removed from the fans, are a bunch of complete, arrogant dickheads and that they'd hate you if they met you?

    Well in the days of social media interaction as well as fans having the chance to briefly meet some of our players I rather like to indulge in the idea that for us at least, such an accusation isn't true. It certainly makes it easier and more enjoyable to support the successes of the boys on the pitch representing our city and club and makes the whole experience far more enjoyable for me for one.

    All of the above however would be well and truly blown the **** out by signing someone like John Terry. So no thank you.

    Right that's twice I've seen Reid mentioned as a signing today. He shouldn't even be considered once let alone twice in one day.

    I would say yes, born leader, strong, good in the air and can get a few goals.

    Realistically though he will stay at Chelsea even if it meant him taking a pay cut.

    Has had a great season but it's a no from me. We could use the money of his wages much better. Will probably end up at QPR on 100k a week.

    Good Lord, how on earth will he scrape by on 80k? Poor little sod. Feel for him, I really do.

    ...and that's a no from me. I'd rather we did spend money on a good young centre back. Someone up and coming. A Dan Burn or Harry Maguire...

    Not a chance.

    Brain-dead glory-hunting thug.

    Will never forget how he turned up in full kit (including pads) to lift the Champions League trophy despite not playing.

    Goes against everything we are supposed to be building.

    Would tell me that "The Project" is dead and we are just content to be a production line for big clubs and the concept of a group that we have kept together from age 8 becoming part of a "Club" that they "love" is dead.

    No no and no.

    Doesn't need the money so the only PL club I could see him playing for is QPR if they come up a) on 100k for Harry and b) not having to move house. Wouldn't be surprised if Lampard joined them, typical Harry signings.

    Otherwise I can't see him wanting to play for Spurs, Arsenal etc or another English club full stop. Serie A could be destination, Inter have signed Vidic. Russia is another possible desitination if money is his top priority.

    Saints player profiles seem to be young, up and coming, with resale value, or homegrown. He doesn't fit either of these profiles.
