Pied is getting a rare start, alongside Fonte, for Lille today.

Lille extend their unbeaten run to 6 games and they've only conceded 1 goal in those 6 games. Fonte has had a tremendous 2 years there and has been a very positive influence on Lille's youngsters. His new central defensive partner, Sven Botman, would be a great buy for Saints.

Hadn't heard of him until your post. No idea if he'd have been a good signing or not for Saints but liklihood is we'll never find out as if he's successful at Lille then he'll be a £25m + player when he leaves, unless he falls short of what they require and we pick him up for c £15m as we did Hoedt !

I saw he only joined them this season from Ajax. We really are missing out in our scouting and need to nab players before they end up in Germany, Italy, or even the better clubs in France. Once established there they're out of our price range.

And there were numpties on here seriously thinking he could do a job for us when he was released by Liverpool.

He struggled to last 70 minutes when he was here in his prime, no way would he have coped with the demands of Ralph’s tactics.

Brighton, another set of fans over the summer who thought we were being bitter that we didn't get Lallana back after some lets say tenuous links. They very much thought they got one over us and were boasting about the signing of Lallana, not just because they thought he would help them to progress, but because they also thought the signing riled us.

It has been a good gameweek off the pitch. They can enjoy him on the four-year contract, or whatever it was they put him on.

Cheerio Austin, he even struggled in the Champ last season though. His career is only going one way now.

I wonder if he will hurl abuse at Bilic and/or the WBA fans when he leaves?

Absolute knob

Van Dijk left an unpleasant taste by the way he engineered the breaking of his saints’ contract. He didn’t look too happy today after leaking 7 goals against a team that was nearly relegated a few months ago.

Clyne  signs for Palace again , Roy says he is a complete professional!

On a free. If he can regain some form after his injuries, that's not to be sniffed at.

Jose Fonte's Lille team won again They have the best defensive record in Europe and are now clear at the top of the French League, unbeaten in their last ten games and they've only conceded 2 goals in all of them.

It's okay. We just need Hoedt to get a run of 6-8 games and we'll soon forget Fonte ever played for us.

Yeah, brilliant, but absolutely nothing to do with defending in England

According to the BBC VVD had said this on social media.  "I'm ready for the challenge ahead." 

I suppose that's the challenge of earning several million pounds a year for NOT playing football. What a brave soldier he is.  Get real VVD.......Arrogant ******. Unless of course he's going to work for the NHS during his absence.

Anyway VVD I hear Barcelona is nice this time of year and good for recuperating.

He defended in England brilliantly for us, just the same as he is doing in France for Lille now. 

Mark Wright defended brilliantly for us, but I wouldn’t want him playing now. How did Jose defend for West Ham? You know, the last club he played for in the league we’re in?

No-one does melodrama quite like the scousers.

Surprised they're not arranging an all night vigil for Virgil.

Socially distanced of course.

Hi Virg, Now you have some time on your hands perhaps you'd like to give some more thought to working in Spain? Not like you've got anything else to do at the moment. As you yourself once said, a career in football can be very short, so why spend the rest of it in a shithole like Merseyside? Sincerely, Ronald
