    I expect football clubs the length and breadth of Europe are following these pages in the hope of tapping up one of you miserable sods as their next manager. You're all clearly so much more knowledgeable and experienced than what they have, and with the added bonus that you're all psychic and know exactly what the current manager, owner and board are thinking.
    I bet some of you were among the tw@ts screaming "I hope we get relegated" the day NA got sacked.
    To borrow from the Nike campaign from a few World Cups ago: "Armchair football manager. Easiest job in the world".
    IOC,100% in agreement,well said for standing out in the crowd of the miserable negative supporters.
    I feel at the moment we must have the most negative whinging supporters in the country,and I hope RK doesn't read the drivel these so called fans are spouting,if he does read it wouldn't be surprised if he is the next one to leave.
    I for one have total trust,and it is a pity some of you have no backbone.
    I have been a supporter for 56 years,through good and bad,and never will I capitulate when things don't go as I wish they should.Never been so angry with some of the lily livered instant gratification,headle

    ss chickens, so called fans we have coming on this site,grow a pair will you. In Rk staff,,board and players,I have total trust and belief.
    Spot on IOC and long memory! Positive thinkers and optimists. I have also been a long term supporter of SFC (65 years!) ad at the age of 73 I have no intention of capitulating to the doom mongers.

    In RK I have faith, in SFC I have faith.

    Long live SFC!!"

Liverpool have agreed a fee believed to be in the region of £20m for Saints defender Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian centre half has long been angling for a move to Anfield, after the Premier League runner-ups' interest in him was revealed.

At one point, he even threatened to not return to Staplewood following the World Cup in a bid to force through the move to Liverpool.

Manger Ronald Koeman said last week that he was prepared to let Lovren go if the Reds met Saints' asking price, as he did not want players at Southampton who did not want to be there.

He will be the third Southampton player to swap the South Coast for the North West this summer, following in the footsteps of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

In total, Liverpool have paid Saints around £49m for the three players, which is half of the total outlay Brendan Rodgers has put on seven new signings.

Lovren joined Saints from French side Lyon for a fee of £8.5m last summer.

It is understood he will undergo a medical tomorrow before finalising the move.
