    How the **** does a loan signing make it worse? If it doesn't work out we send him back!!

    Happy knowing it’s a loan. Would’ve been absolutely embarrassed knowing we’d spent £20mil as was rumoured in recent weeks.

    Would rather have current strikers plus Ings than just our current strikers.

    Well put it this way, if we have Austin and Ings, then we are more likely to have one of them for the whole season. Of course, both could breakdown at the same time. Onwards...

    I agree with hypochondriac, some utter fannies around. It's as if they can't wait for things to go wrong and nothing would make them happier.

    Well our press is saying loan with a VIEW to a perm move, so guess we’ve got to wait and see!

    If he signs on loan, let's get behind him - underwhelming or not, he might just surprise us all.

    I think Ings will do alright. Better than Carillo, that is for sure.

    To be fair, these 'underwhelming' deals sometimes work out better than the mega money additions. I remember Jos being seen as seriously underwhelming when we signed him, but he was so critical to us that season.

    Unbelievable from some people. We signed an absolute shocker in carillo and have effectively replaced him with someone that is likely to be better. It's a positive development undoubtedly and will give us another option.

    This, and as none of us are paying for it personally I am not sure what the problem is.

    If it's a loan with an obligation to buy as suggested, I reckon it's probably so the fee goes onto next season's bill for FFP reasons.

    Imagine we'll hope to ship out Forster and Carrillo by then for signings next season.

    When Les came back from Spain with nowt but a bottle of aniseed digestif, a large Toblerone and some fruity sweets we had to act fast.

    It's seems more clear by the day that FFP is totally holding us back right now (with all these huge contracts). I don't believe we've not got any money to spend, we just aren't allowed to.

    That's why FFP has always been an utter farce in my opinion. What is fair about not letting the 'smaller' teams strengthen their squads? How is that levelling the playing fields?

    The clubs with money can just happily fliter cash away anyway, breach FFP and then pay - to them - the tiny fine. Joke.

    I'm no big fan of Ings but on a loan deal it is low risk and he gives us another option so I don't see what the problem is. Liverpool wanted £20m for him so have obviously realised their only hope was to loan him out, hence why it's last minute.
    Some people on here are only happy if they are whinging like an entitled six year old.
    Let's give Ings a chance and see what he can do, he can't be any worse than Long!

    The guy's a Saints fan so he's one of our own, he'll give 100% that's for certain. More than some of our recent players.

    Sometimes people get more excited when they see £25m/30m etc. We have been shocking at our 'record deals'. (Carrillo, Boufal, Gaston...)

    Maybe we should rename it to - ''Southampton Sign Danellie Inges for £30m"

    If he stays fit, he's a complete improvement to us. The problem I have is 'if', and also why it's all last minuite.com. Maybe as someone suggested - Liverpool have been playing games and have shelved their big asking price at the last min.

    I imagine (but do not know) that there was interest in Ings throughout the summer, but nothing happened because of Liverpool’s well-publicized and completely unrealistic £20M price tag. The reason it got left so late is because no one would buy at the price, allowing Saints to sneak in with a late loan bid.

    Liverpool overplayed their hand, and Saints did OK if it is a loan move with an option to buy.

    He’s better than no-one, would take him at this stage, worth the gamble if it’s a loan

    They don't have players on huge wages. I think that's what's holding us down. People like Forster, Prowse, Austin being paid bucket loads. These new sides that come up will have quite modest wage bills in all respects.

    I look at all the madness going on and how excited other fans are of all these £20-30m signings that they have never heard of, and am very happy with our £7m signing of Armstrong.

    I'd say we're pretty much stuck with them for the rest of their contracts; probably loaned out with Saints paying a chunk of their wages.

    Underwhelmed by Ings. With the thousand gazzilion million pound TV deal, could we really not find a striker somewhere in the world better than Danny 'glass knees' Ings?!

    Sky wetting their pants over Fulham’s ‘window”, of course it was Everton last season.

    If the club throws away money on useless things (like Carrillo) it impacts their financial ability to improve the squad in future windows, so the price tag does have long term importance.

    It's the only thing that makes any sense to me, huge wages of our current players holding back any additions. Maybe in combo with our internal wage caps. Who knows, but I can't see us being skint.

    Wages maybe, but not like we’ve suddenly signed players on big wages, they’ve grown gradually with the new players coming in and loads leaving.

    FFP doesn’t seem to exist in the prem on transfer fees anymore.

    God you really are a plank.

    You’ve absolutely no idea of whether we were the slightest bit interested in any of their players, so how are they “blowing us away”. These crack signings have yet to kick a ball, yet you’re hailing their business. Give it a ****ing rest.

    He's not a truly awful footballer though is he. Carrillo was. Heck, even Boufal was most of the time as he couldn't be arsed.

    Even your mate, who you were sure was being sold, has been pretty awful for us.

    If it’s a loan deal I don’t have an issue with this. His injury record makes it a huge risk otherwise. I will say that this deal does kinda put the myth of the black box out to pasture once and for all.
