I think SNSUN was refering to Lemina, who is on loan.

My apologies - although SNSUN was referring to the first half and I didn't think Lemina came on until the end.......when Leicester scored. Coincidence? Anyway, sorry if I misinterpreted. Although, to be fair, my old boots have got more chance of shining than Lemina.

Two different matches. Tbf Lemina poor in both.

Reed wouldn’t get into our first team given the form of Romeu and JWP. Would be competing with Diallo for the bench place, when he would be guaranteed first team football at Fulham after last year’s loan. We did get a fair amount of money for him too.

While that's probably true, I think Reed would offer as much to Saints as JWP and Romeu in midfield and ideally I would have preferred him to have stayed as one of four midfielders with Diallo.   Smallbone would have made way as I doubt he will make the grade.     Looking forward to seeing the Saints v Fulham game to see how the midfield tussles work out.

I just can't agree that Reed would offer as much as JWP and Romeu. To me he is nowhere near their level, either defensively, technically, or in an attacking sense. I haven't seen enough of Diallo to comment, and in truth he is going to struggle to get into the team ahead of the aforementioned duo. Reed would have competed with smallbone and Diallo for a spot on the bench and that's it.

Yes, I would rather have a home grown academy player taking up a slot, but not if they don't want to be here. Ultimately he wanted first team football and that's fair enough, i wish him well but i'm not upset that he's gone.

he ain't gonna make 20 unless he comes on off the bench in games like this.

What’s the betting they stop at 19 haha. They’ve got a real chance of staying up though, become much harder to beat and play some really nice stuff, just need to turn draws into wins on occasion.

Can only imagine they would be ok with it if they want to get another domestic loan in?

Or if they think a) he isn't up to the scrap they have ahead, b)the squad might be better off without him...

Neither seem too far fetched

What a waste of a career. From Juve to barely making the bench for newly promoted Fulham in 4 years. Still only 27 too. Permanent deal only please

He probably doesn't see it like that. Lots of bling, nice fast cars, nice women probably. He's laughing all the way to the bank!

This potential deal is no surprise though, he's a proper journeyman. Hopefully at some point clubs stop giving him the opportunities, he's a hopeless professional.

Ok? I didn't question any of that. But there's no doubt he's happy enough with his load, even though he hasn't actually done much for any of the clubs he's been part of - apart from taking lots of $$$

Bloke is still a waste of talent...........pretty much stealing a wage just about everywhere he has been.

The annoying thing is that he can be a very good player when he wants to be.

I remember watching his first game at St Marys and the guy next to me saying that, if we weren't careful, Liverpool would come sniffing around. He really did look a good prospect.

That is what is so annoying about Lemina. I have always felt that he has the talent to be world class, as he showed in one or two flashes. Yet he seems to have no desire or application, not even in the semi-final when we did have some possibility, albeit slim, of winning a trophy.

Agreed. In flashes he looked superb, Pogba level, but most of the time he didn't turn up. That semi-final performance was a disgrace, and I can't recall any player ever looking so disinterested in a big match.

I don't know about Liverpool coming sniffing around, I shouldn't think f***ing Hartlepool would come sniffing now.

But, Lem's Life has only just welcomed everyone to London! 

 

 

Is this satire? Because if I was to put together the life of a footballer in satire form- this is it. I particularly like "I spend most of the time playing FIFA"...pause..."sometimes I watch Netflix with my wife"...but most of the time I play FIFA...." pause " "Oh and try to play with my son too...." followed by "Let's go to the other room".  Riveting stuff. Fuck me what a waste of money paying these footballers such high amounts if this what they do.
