  • "I can't imagine being dumped out of 3 cup competitions at home to teams like Notts County and Wycombe Wanderers.
    No disrespect to NC and WW but it must be a tad embarrassing.”
    I also can't imagine having a run down sh1te hole for a ground and pathetic attendances or having to beg steal and borrow other cubs players each month.
    That must also be a tad embarrassing””
    I also can't imagine losing at home to Brentford in front of only 11,000 and starting to leave with 20 minutes left to play and then 7,000 people booing your own team which technically speaking isn't really yours.
    That must be a tad embarrassing even for fish fiddling mongs”
    I also can't imagine having a manager who couldn't get away fast enough after getting booed by his own supporters the night before and also having a ground that when spelt backwards says nottarf krap which is kind of apt I suppose.
    Even so that must be a tad embarrassing even for inbred wannabe John Westwwod w@nkers who need a good Jimmy Saville seeing to.
    I also can't imagine trying to buy your own club with less than 2,000 of the bestest ever greatest most bestest and greatest fans ever TM when most have only pledged the initial £100 but have no intentions of actually paying £1000 as the social won't give it to them.
    That must be a tad embarrassing even for the prepubescent fish f@cking tw@ts that post utter sh1te on another teams site because they are such sad little westwood wannabe w@nkers
    I also can't imagine losing to the bottom side in league one which would now mean you would soon be bottom when ten points are deducted for cheating and generally being one of the most dishonest and despised football clubs in football.
    That must be a tad embarrassing even for a load of plastic cockney inbred chavs, of whom some still post on another clubs site pretending to be fans of that club thinking they are clever but really are showing what a sad bunch of mongs they really are.”
    I also can't imagine being a sad fish fiddling pr1ck wanting to spend so much time spewing out the same old boring and childish load sh1te about a bigger and richer club with a bright future rather than wallowing in the demise and slow death of your own p1ss poor little club on your own site.
    That must be a tad embarrassing.
    I also can't imagine losing at home yet again and six games in a row in league one when your superior neighbours have just given QPR a footballing lesson and now picked up 4 points from 6 which is a bit better than 0 points from 18.
    That must be a tad embarrassing which would explain why the spineless fish worrying skunts aren't playing tonight and are all indoors with their westwood wannabe jim- jams on but not blowing their plastic trumpets.......sssh, sssh”
    I also can't imagine losing 7 (seven) games on the bounce and only having about 9,000 of the bestest ever best most bestest and greatest best fans ever TM at a home game booing at the start and at half time and at the end of the game.
    That must be a tad embarrassing......SK

Nigel Adkins believes Jack Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin have the potential to be a central midfield powerhouse pairing for Saints.

Cork’s return to the team after injury has resulted in four points from the last two games as Saints start to show the kind of form that could drag them to Premier League safety.

It should hardly be surprising when you consider that Cork has lost just 11 of the 52 games he has started since making a permanent move to the club from Chelsea just over a year ago. More than that, Adkins (pictured left) has been desperate to pair Cork and Schneiderlin together in a new look Continued: Page 37 midfield that sees the 23-year-olds sitting in front of the back four.

With Cork’s energy and dynamism and Schneiderlin’s fantastic passing ability they look every inch a Premier League partnership.

“He (Cork) was yet again outstanding – him and Morgan Schneiderlin together,” raved Adkins.

“I played Jack Cork in every game after I signed him last season.

“He was called up for the Great Britain team for the Olympics which is a great honour obviously but we didn’t have him for pre-season.

“He came back and in his first game he got injured, he came back after that and got injured straightaway in his comeback game.

“We’ve not had an opportunity to have Jack Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin together until now.

“They are two young 23-year-olds who I believe have got so much potential and we can get a good partnership going with them.“We also have young James Ward-Prowse who is going to be phenomenal for us and Steven Davis we have brought in and is still very young in footballling terms but has a wealth of experience he can help the players with.”

Schneiderlin and Cork also have enviable statistics in games they have started together over the past season and a bit.

In that time they have been on the losing side on just six out of 21 occasions.
