The Southampton fans in the Transfer Tavern really did enjoy a good weekend. Indeed, with Mauricio Pellegrino and his men finally securing a much-needed win against a relegation rival, the fact Virgil van Dijk messed up for Liverpool last night has gone down a storm in our bar.
With our punters clad in red and white dancing on the pool tables following the win away at the Hawthorns, the Dutchman’s blunder at Anfield, alongside Dejan Lovren’s capped off a wonderful weekend for those who frequent in their droves.
Having left St. Mary’s little under a month ago, the defender really isn’t a popular figure amongst the support down there, so any mishap he has was always likely to spark a reaction online. With that in mind, here’s a look at what Saints fans made of van Dijk’s blunder.
Van dijk is terrible since he left, players never succeed after leaving us…. #saintsfc

The fact Van Dijk could be turning into the new Lovren for Liverpool makes this weekend even better for #SaintsFC fans…

Virgil Van Dijk came from the saints. The English press said give him a chance. 75m down the drain, as Virgil Van Dijk concedes again. #LIVTOT

How did we get nearly 100mn for Van Dijk and Lovren. Absolutely insane.
Lovren stacking it for the first pen. VVD just smashing the bloke for the other.
