Some Southampton fans have made their disagreements clear about a recent post involving their former player Adam Lallana.
The Saints recently signed Kyle Walker-Peters on loan from Premier League giants Tottenham, with the right-back’s deal at the club set to conclude at the end of the current season.
A Southampton-related page recently posted about why the club should bring Adam Lallana back to St. Mary’s in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Are you angry at how Lallana left Southampton?
Yes, he doesn't deserve us
No, can't blame him for it
But when Saints fans read this, they disagreed with the argument and don’t want the Englishman back at the south coast club.
I have no issue with players leaving, but it was the manner of his departure that bugged me. Oxlade-Chamberlain has always been far more respectful towards Saints and what the club done for him. Lallana is utterly arrogant and probably thinks the club owes him something

We’re supposed to be moving forward, not backwards.

Too old, too injury prone, too little value at the end of his contract. Cannot believe this is the best way of spending what little spare cash we have.

Not a chance

No chance. Doesn’t fit our profile at all regardless of the baggage. Perfect for West Ham I would have thought….

No thank you very much. Why do some of our supporters always want to re-sign old players? Look forwards not backwards.

We already have better in the squad for Attacking Mids tbh. Plus we wouldn’t sign him anyway. He’s too old.

Liverpool signed Lallana from Southampton in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £25 million. Since joining the Anfield-based side, Lallana has made a total of 175 appearances in all competitions for the club. This season, he has played only 13 Premier League games, scoring once – against Manchester United earlier in the season.
Lallana’s last season at St. Mary’s had seen him contribute to 18 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions.
What do we think?
Lallana’s current deal at Liverpool runs out in the summer, with the club having the option to extend it for another season. If Southampton can make a move for Lallana financially feasible, it may be worth the gamble, though it seems not all fans would be behind such a move.
