    Also considering attack minded midfielders is still the area i want us to strengthen ill be pissed if we get rid of one of them on deadline day without a replacement.

    I'd expect him to become an England regular under Dyche.

    Always liked Dyche...

    Has all the qualities I like in a manager.

    Be upset if JWP leaves this close to the season, but could be good for him...he needs to play for a manager that believes in him. May not step up a level, but surely needs the chance to try.

    I shall be behind the sofa crying into my duvet if anyone needs me. :(

    Was talking to a Burnley fan the other day, he couldn't believe their luck that a bigger club haven't stolen him.

    Feels a bit like selling the family silver cheaply at £15m.

    I’d probably take £15m for my family silver.

    £15m seems a bit cheap (and I want to keep him).

    He's under contract until 2022, has played 167 PL games, former England U21 captain and made his senior England debut. Surely he must be worth more than that?

    Of course he is. £15m would just be an insult to all Southampton fans.

    Be surprised after what Peach and Blackmore said.

    From a purely footballing perspective, I don't care that much. Yes, he can take a set piece, but in most other elements of football he's bang average, and in some not even that.

    Have to admit that not signing a striker in this window after such a good start would be like doing a really good piece of work then deciding at the end not to submit it.

    True, but most other clubs have realised there’s worth in a calculated value... we are hideously overstocked in some areas and players like JWP are ripe for picking as we have never worked out how to use him.... would I blame him if he wanted to go.... no, but I’d prefer it to be a loan....

    Depends on the formation. In our previous usual 4 2 3 1 we would be down to 4 first teams AM's + Sims for 3 AM positions where you want to use 3 and 2 subs every match. Granted Hughes seems to not like using a midfield so if we are using only 3 midfielders total with one AM then yeah we're overstocked.

    This looks like being another disastrous transfer window :(
