    Default Simple yes or no...Lallana on a free in the summer?

    Liverpool are letting Lallana go in the summer on a free transfer. So simple question, would you have him back here?

    Itís a no from me. West Ham signing written all over him.

    I'd see him back if he was better than the other options. Can't be bothered to hold grudges.

    No.

    Yes.
    But it won't happen. His wage expectation would be out of our budget, so yes, Wet Spam to accommodate him.

    Yes, I’ll drive up there and bring him back myself.

    Would he improve the squad? Yes. Does he have a high work rate that fits our style? Yes. Would he add needed creativity? Yes. There would be a few moaning voices at first but if he put in a few good performances they would soon die down.

    Injuries would be my only concern (except for cost, but itís not my money so meh). If he were here now heíd walk into this side.

    Would rather see him crash his car on the M3 to be honest

    "Free" is misleading

    He'd require a huge multi million signing on fee, large agent fee and probably wages upwards of £100k per week

    Yes - but only if Ralph wants him.

    Irrespective of it being Lallana, a 30 + year old with history of injuries doesn't fit our model.

    Was a great player for us before, acted like a pr*ck and burnt his bridges to be honest. Was booed (by me included) when he warmed up against us at Liverpool a couple of weeks ago too.

    I wouldn't want him back.

    How many examples of Premier League players agreeing to a pay as you play deal can you name? It doesn't happen

    No, no, no. I would boycott St Marys if that idiot turned up in a Saints shirt again. But it will never happen. Non story

    Yes. Good player who would improve us. I'm not fussed about how he left and frankly can understand why he wanted a move and why he would have got the hump if he was denied one.

    Damn! There was me thinking it meant he'd cost nothing and play for free. Thanks for demystifying this really intricate concept for me.

    Matt Jansen, Blackburn.

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11676/2362547/jansen-on-verge-of-rovers-exit


    ”Jansen signed a pay-as-you-play contract last summer but has failed to force his way into Hughes's first team reckoning this season”

    (might have been Championship though, not sure)

    edit, no, it was Premier League apparently.

    Not for me thanks. He burnt his bridges when he left and sold his soul to Liverpool. Too injury prone for Ralph anyway.

    Whatever Ralf wants....but I don't think that a 31 year old injury prone Judas would fit the squad that he is trying to put together.

    No, burnt his bridges. Wouldn’t want to be his retirement home.

    Not for me. Old, injured, only here for a pay cheque. Not been consistently decent for years.

    no he hasn’t been decent for a fair while now.
    In fact he could easily be put in the “should never of left Southampton” pigeon hole.
    ok he’s got some medals but they are hollow rewards, he’s played a very minor part in anything they’ve won, even cost them a League Cup with a missed penalty a few years back.

    He is currently the very definition of squad player, playing a bit part here and there.
    We had his best football days.

    No obviously not.

    He's off to join Brendan Rodgers at Leicester anyway.

    Would love to see him back as he is still far better than what we currently have. Great player and one of the best I’ve seen at Saints and alongside Lambert etc responsible for Saints getting back to the top flight.
    Won’t happen though as he will join a club with ambition and much higher wages than Saints.

    People who are saying yes, yes, must think he is still as good as when he played here..No, no he is near the end of his career, he is injury prone and he has an inflated opinion of himself which means he will be looking for a big pay day. Ralph looks for the opposite: young, eager with all to prove

    Is 31 the end of a football career?
    Danny Ings was injury prone for longer periods of his Liverpool career but has come good again at Saints.

    And he deserves his wish. Let him cuddle up to Brendan again.
