    Fonte was slowing down at Saints , his late challenges got later . He hit the heights with his international career but when he came back things got worse and he left for WHU where his decline continued . He is now in a league that may suit him and I hope he enjoys the end of his career , which was not going to happen in the Prem .

    Whilst I don't like VVD, his reaction with the referee last night was quality. Pity he didn't show the same behaviours when Klippety wanted a weekend away in Blackpool.

    Re: Fonte, he was slowing up physically as evidence by the shockers for WHU (one of them at SMS, when a Pellegrino team scores 3, you know you've had a stinker) although the leadership was still there. I got the impression he and Puel didn't see eye to eye and possibly Reed as well after the strikers/transfer window debacle in 2016. The fact he wasn't adequetly replaced despite the money seemingly being there was the next sign of Les slowing up as well and Reed should have been phased out that summer if the 'takeover' wasn't in the background.

    Tadic was inconsistent but been in great form for Ajax in Europe. Quite frankly, the table this machine sits on is more creative and contributes more than Moi, who has to be one of the most pointless signings I've ever seen, and that's going some on recent years.

    Even with VVD, we've replaced him with Hoedt, who is getting marginally better but hardly good sufficient still, and Vestergaard, whose is a lanky presence on the bench at £18m. We talk about Fonte slowing up, but he could play for Saints in the masters tournaments in his 50s and still outpace Jannik.

    Let's not even mention Carrillo. With the above ineptitude, Reed, his carer and rent-a-gob might as well have done a KLF and burned £85m on a Scottish island.

    Let's not moan, we've probably got one or two more good performances to come this season from Lemina. Now he's got speed, unfortunately it's only when there's a 30 or 40mph limit.

    The clue is the bit in bold. Fonte was past his best when he left us and I have no problem with us actually selling him, provided we had a decent replacement signed up... which we didn't.

    Just after joining us didn't Pochettino **** himself laughing in a press conference when a journo suggested Nigel Adkins had claimed that Gazzanigga could go on to play for Argentina? Funny how things work out.

    Dušan Tadić has been directly involved in 21 goals in his first 24 games for Ajax (13 goals, 8 assists).

    I remember saying in the summer that after selling Tadic, Elyounoussi was going to have to hit the ground running.

    Yeah. About that.

    FFS Tadic did his time here and wanted to go back to his adopted home. Why people think and expect overseas players (especially them) to want to spend their whole career at a provincial club like Saints is a mystery to me.

    Tadic is definitely a guy that shines with good players around him. Wouldn't look out of place in a better team but is totally wasted in poor teams like what we became post Mane/Pelle.

    Decent.

    @OptaJoe: 1 - Paulo Gazzaniga is the first Spurs goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet away at Arsenal in any competition November 1998, when Espen Baardsen did so at Highbury. Unlikely.

    Gazzaniga is the goalkeeping equivalent of Yoshida.

    I’d love it if they got to 100 points, but still finished below City who get 102. Could easily happen this season. Would be funny as **** if they got enough points to win the league every season...................except this one.

    Morgan still getting torrid abuse from his lot on their forum, and found these nuggets :

    Total fraud of a footballer.
    Yep...not his fault tho...but hey we're lumbered with this fraud that EFC was too big for him to handle when he stepped onto the grass at Goodison...like RK couldn't handle just how big things are...

    ..got to laugh at the delusion there...

    Southampton are going to panic buy him, won’t cost a lot and it’s a club legend (imagine this bloke being regarded as that) that will keep the fans happy. Best for everyone until they go down and he wants out again.
    Mate , he’s not a saints legend, I’m from there and not a single one of my mates thinks he is.
    Please don’t get in the way of my agenda against Southampton
    Appears the Silva magic is wearing off as it did at Watford.

    Lallana latest...

    Sky Sports News understands Liverpool forward Adam Lallana will remain at Anfield during this transfer window, and will not be sent out on loan.

    Reports elsewhere have stated that a number of clubs are interested in signing him - including Fenerbahce, where former Liverpool Sporting Director Damian Comolli now works.

    It was also suggested that a loan deal might suit the player and Jurgen Klopp as Lallana looks to step up his recovery from a groin strain that has restricted him to just two Premier League starts this season.

    But the England forward has made two substitute appearances for the league leaders over Christmas and it’s thought Klopp wants to now reintegrate him as a first-team regular.

    Leicester are up and down the table, almost relegated to winning the league to almost regated to the middle to different positions on a monthly basis. Make you think the momentum theory is a pile of ****.

    Clyne to Bournemouth, another who thought the lights brighter at Liver. Or, perhaps he missed the weather.

    To be fair to Clyne, his first two seasons at Liverpool he was starting 11 pretty much every game, he got injuryed and Liverpool born Alexander-Arnold came in and done extremely well and has kept his place. If he hadnt got injuryed I think he's still be playing regularly.

    IDIAKEZ IN LUTON CONTENTION

    Luton Under-18s boss Inigo Idiakez is among the names being considered for the first-team job at Kenilworth Road, according to Sky sources.

    The Hatters are on the hunt for a successor to Nathan Jones after he took the Stoke City job – and Idiakez has enjoyed success with one of their youth teams.

    The former Southampton and Derby midfielder led his team to the EFL Youth Alliance Cup last season and they are currently fifth in the Southeast Division.

    Luton have had more than 60 applications for Jones’ position, which has been given to club legend Mick Harford on an interim basis.

    He was a bit more than that. Played quite a few games for us under Burley in our playoff season IIRC.
