I'm really not arsed if we can't sign any Southampton players, so they can go ahead and put that clause in.

But can such a clause exist?

If you are a Southamptn player and you want to make a career move, how is it legal for someone else to restrict your career based on what they do?

I guess it's no different to when a top boss of some company cannot join a competitor for a certain length of time. That would be a similar thing, but then that's the person making that decision, not the staff. So what I have just written is not the same thing at all.

Didn't Liverpool and Swansea have a similar agreement when Rodgers moved? They couldn't buy any players unless somebody else had bid for them. There was a phantom bid for Joe Allen so Liverpool could swoop in and take him.

the only element of this story which is concerning to me is the possiblity that Koeman doesn't want to be here

who cares if Mane thinks Koeman is an asshat or plays long ball at times?

I remember a manager who had players from time to time think he's an ass hat, also one who played direct at times

his name was alex ferguson

Thank fuck the Euros is on. The fume has been muted because of the distraction.

Yeah. You don't have to like your boss - just to do what they say.

In regards to the "poaching" contract. No, there is no legal grounds on behalf of the players.
But part of an agreement to allow Koeman to void the last year of his contract (and to allow us to speak to him whilst under contract) can include a stipulation saying we wont bit. (different than they wont sell). That's perfectly above board.

I always take issue with people that claim to know what someone else's personal feelings are about something, even though they clearly don't know that person very well....or know them at all in some cases.

The level of detail that the Saints poster put just stinks of bullshit, bumping in to someone that you haven't seen in years who suddenly wants to invite for you for a coffee and divulge all the inner workings of the club and the staff....

He'll be signed by Wednesday, he'll be made up to be here, and we will have a great season.

Anyone getting the de-Ja-vu feeling when Wigan /Swansea fans told us Roberto was a dickhead and loads of posters on here dismissed them, said "what the fuck do they know", "sour grapes bastards".etc etc.

Is Pelligrini still kicking about, just in case?

That is always a possibility. But they were telling their honest opinions based on what they could see, while this guy has written a shaggy-dog story with many inconsistencies that make it hard to believe. It is possible that all of it's basically true, he just embellished bits, it is possible that one or two elements are true, the rest is made up, and it could be complete bullshit.

Either way, we won't be able to guess.

Difference is that Wigan fans' opinions were vindicated by their relegation struggles and eventual relegation. Koeman's time at Southampton has been a success as far the league is concerned.
