    True, but we never reached anywhere near this stage with VVD for obvious reasons.

    Keita is now in line with the Salah deal as bids are going in and negotiating is under way, it usually ends in signing the player once this happens.

    Hopefully we can finally get that going with Van Dijk too and get that opening bid in and off we go.

    We came close, did amazingly well against the top teams last year, then screwed up to some of the lower teams, whose main tactic seemed to be to launch it long, or bang in crosses into the box. Good luck with that tactic with VVD dominating the aerial battles.
    We won't conquer the world, just the ball, every ******* time.

    With both players of that quality quality wanting to join us, it's a really big opportunity this window to maybe kick us on to another level for the next few years.

    We've conceded far too many from the year we nearly won it to last season, that's 3 seasons now

    You don't see many teams scoring great goals against us, like they've really had to work for them. Most of the goals we concede are so avoidable.

    Yea scrappy goals from nothing, hopefully VVD comes in and eventually becomes the leader and sorts it all out.

    Yeah that's why our team is so frustrating there's nearly always a brain fart behind it

    If we get VVD and Keta I think we are the real deal next season.

    Do you honestly think Southampton will accept our bid with this thread under 100 pages? Of course they won't.

    If we couldn't get him with 100 we will have to stump up 125 at least to stand a chance.

    Not worried about that. VVD has made it clear he wants to go to Liverpool and I'm pretty sure we would be willing to pay more for him than Arsenal.

    If boiled down to either VVD or Keita this window, I'd rather it was VVD as I think his need is greater at the moment.

    If it boiled down to a quality midfielder or a quality defender I'd want the defender, if it boiled down to Kieta or VVD , I'd want Kieta.

    Now you are confusing me

    By implication, you are saying VVD is NOT a quality defender!

    No he is, but I think Kieta has the potential to be one of the best midfielders in the world, VVD will always just be a quality defender and although he would improve our defence, there is alternatives out there to him, I don't think there is alternatives to Kieta.

    Judging on his posting on these boards I would say any fun has been long removed from his life .... a long long time ago .
