    That's a ridiculous thing to say given the money she has invested in this club.
    I'm not sure she's invested personally after her father's initial investments which are loans that have to be repaid sometime. All the recent transfers in are being paid for by transfers out and we are still paying for the training facilities, floodlights, etc.
    Then you've answered your own question. If any money (any at all) comes into the club then it is all hers, to do with as she **** well pleases and doesn't need your permission or NC's or anyone else blessing to use it any way she wishes. If as little as one pound of that money goes on the club then it is her investing it. Her money paying for the lights, her paying for the loans, her paying for the training facilities, her paying a lot of people a monthly wage in Southampton. With the attitude of some of you I would even forgive her for saying enough is enough, not a penny more selling it all off and going where she might get some respect and appreciation. What an ungrateful bunch of arseholes some of you are."

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.
