This is the only way I can understand not going for a plan B, if we manage to get it done in Jan then really what we had should have done us until then and also it's the man Jürgen wants.
There's definitely a case to be made for saying well even if VvD comes we still could have upgraded on Gomez/Klavan also, which I absolutely agree with and would have made the waiting period until Jan comes around a lot easier.
I just really hope we're not the donkey and VvD is the carrot. I don't think we are, I think we'll get our man, from what has been said around here VvD is putting in half-arsed performances, now Saints may wish to spite him the way he's spiting them but is that really healthy for their club. Surely it's better to wash their hands of him and get someone in who wants to play for them.
As reluctantly as I would have been, if Cou did the same I'd have to say f**k him off and I believe Southampton will do what's right for them, rather than what is worst for VvD.
