If it had been that easy to do, every club would have been doing it.

It's not easy, but nor is it a plan completely without merit.

There isn't a massive difference in the theory between what we were doing around then, and Leicester buying Mahrez, Kante, Vardy and Schmeichel for less than the combined fee of what we were spending on Libor Kozak, then combining them with a load of Premier League has-beens and nearly-weres like Huth, Simpson, Drinkwater and er...Albrighton.

There's nothing different in principle to us signing Senderos from Fulham's reserves and them signing Huth from Stoke's reserves. Or us signing El-Ahmadi and them signing Kante.

They just scouted and integrated the right players for their "young and hungry plan", we went and gone done fucked it.

Our signings under TSM2 ,the 'young and hungry' weren't too bad.The fee received for Benteke paid for everyone.Discards like Lowton and Westwood continued in the Prem.with Burnley.Vlaar returned home.The problem was the unwillingness to spend the extra.TSM2 wanted Cresswell from Ipswich but we balked at the fee and bought Bennett .We acted like a side just grateful to be in the top division which has been too often case in the last ...

Rumours today seem to be that we're interested in Pereira from Albion, and that any deal for James Ward-Prowse  is interested in a move to Villa but a deal's some way off.

I never thought the young and hungry plan was the worst thing in the world
I quite like the idea of it for where we were at that time

But it does need a better manager and better background staff to make it work with any success

To be fair any system plan or progressive ideas were doomed to failure if you have P Lambert at the helm so the whole thing is going to be nailed on failure before you even start

I think the playing staff were the least of our problems at that time, to be honest. The real issue was the cancerous bullying culture that Lambert allowed to take hold. How could young players coming in to that be expected to develop?

So if theyíre known for making it up why are you quoting it?

I think JWP would be a good signing, although not quite the dominant DM I was hoping for.  JWP is technically excellent, has incredible energy and resiliance - plays pretty much every minute for Southampton, versatile and has a touch of quality.  I think fans would take to him in the same way we have with McGinn.  My only concern is I'm not sure what is in Smiths mind for him fitting in.  I think he's better box to box than at DM and would be competing in the roles I think McGinn and Luiz should be battling for.

With all that said, he's Southamptons best player, their Captain and talisman.  I doubt they need to sell and if they did need money have some other sellable assets.  I think it would take a pretty huge bid to get him and I just don't see how we can do that with our other needs and FFP.

Itís a transfer rumour thread.
The source is unreliable, but itís still a rumour.
My guess is if it had been posted by a H&V big hitter it wouldnít have been questioned
