    What did they say about Pahars and what do you fear? Never playing again properly?

    Obviously you don't remember the joke then. Nothing to do with injuries.

    I had a conversation during the January transfer window with someone very much ITK who told me about the various interest in Shaw. His words "Luke doesn't even like going shopping by himself, so how would he cope in another city?"
    The snippets I've read in various places since regarding his family moving with him if he does make a move would add up.
    I say he's going nowhere for another or season or two

    I had a long drive from Leeds Bradford Airport to Southampton and James Beattie drove me (coupel of years back - fight was cancelled). Anyhow we talked about the Pahars injury and he said medically there was nothing wrong and no-one could understand why he wasnt playing. He said it was completely in his head...true story.

    I heard that as well...he would only play when completely well...any niggle and he wouldn't. Also heard he was the only player who completely changed his kit including pants at half time...a bit OCD perhaps.

    I think certain injuries are undetectable to an extent. Shouldn't trust the doctors 100%. I've had a problem with my knee for over three years, which limits me to only being able to run for 15 minutes before the pain comes back. I've seen over half a dozen specialists, had two MRI scans and numerous x-rays. Each time I'm told there is nothing wrong with me, which is absolute bullshit.

    Not sure that it has been mentioned before as I haven't posted for a good few months but I have heard from a reliable source that Luke Shaw is not particularly keen on a move because he said it would be too far away for his family. This may be why the speculation has gone a bit dead in the water the past week or so, read into it what you will but just trying to keep you fellow people informed!

    wasn't it marian's ankle as well? there must be plenty of opportunity in that cluster of bones and ligaments for something to be wrong without being obvious.

    Well that would make a change...Saints want to sell and player can't leave his Mum. Personally, I think Luke should stay for a couple of years...he seems to be a person who needs his family and friends. And no...he can't take JWP with him.

    Would Def make this transfer window more bearable! I'd rather we kept luke for a couple more years anyway and sell for like 50 million when he is ready to go :)

    I'd rather he stayed with us for the rest of his career. Stay where you are Luke, Manchester is a ****hole (and Tottenham is worse).

    In all seriousness, when it comes to attracting and retaining players, the fact that Southampton is an attractive city close to the New Forest and with the best weather in the UK, must be worth something. And while Liverpool is also a beautiful city when the sun shines, that hardly ever happens.

    Hang on a minute..! I've just realised, through looking up the thread, that you're talking about injuries to Marian Pahars because FLT misconstrued my reference to a Marian Pahars joke. Think I'd better put you straight.

    OK. JayRod is injured, so is unlikely to be transferred out of Saints, yes..? So, with the media predicting a mass exodus of players, I said it would be like the Marian Pahars joke, which none of you obviously remember. Crikey, how young are you lot..?

    The Marian Pahars joke is about the lads playing Portsmouth. They consider Pompey so poor and Marian so good that, at the last minute before the match starts, they decide to disappear down the pub without telling him or anybody else. So he has to play Pompey on his own. They listen in on the pub radio for the score, but because it is old and unreliable, they don't get all the details. Sure enough, halfway through the first half, Saints score 1-0.
    In the second half there is no news until Portsmouth score in the dying minutes of the game 1-1. So the game ends in a draw. The team get back to The Dell and find Pahars with his head in his hands.

    Hey Marian, what are you looking so glum for..? said Doddsy. I could only get a draw, said Pahars. Yeah, that's great, said Davies. No it isn't. I could have bloody well won, said Marian forlornly. How that..? asked Kachloul. I was sent off just before Half-Time, said Marian.

    That's the Marian Pahars joke, as I remember it. Other people tell it slightly differently.

    Now do you get the connection between the Marian Pahars joke and JayRod..?
