  • Nigel Adkins' team keep first clean sheet of season

    Well, here we go. The eight-day wait is over.

    It's a good time to play them but, as Puppy said on the other thread, we can't expect them to roll over.

    Have fun at the Joshua Tree. Wish I could be there with the little Strassies, it's about time Seedhouse bought us all a pint!

    3-1 Saints but only if we play to our strengths.

    The vote is interesting. When I registered (WIN), I was probably first and it showed 100% for a win. In no time, there has been a swing towards LOSE. At the time of posting, if my maths are right, possibly 9 votes (64%) for WIN, 3 (21%) DRAW, 2 (14%) LOSE. So, the question is, of the first 14 votes, who clicked LOSE? I doubt if it's Saints fans believing they're being realistic or hedging their bets. So, if my hunch is true, how long have the two well-known skunts been salivating behind their PCs waiting for the thread to open so as to register LOSE?

    I guess they just can't stay away.

    Hi lads can anyone help me ? I'm a Southampton fan of over 30 years living in Limerick, Ireland. I was at the Uefa Cup match in Limerick in 1981 and have been to Southampton many times for games and
    London a couple of times. I'm going to liverpool next week with 6 Liverpool fans and I wasn't able to get a ticket for the Southampton section as they were snapped up by season ticket holders. Any ideas on how I might get a ticket. I'd really appreciate any help. My email address if anyone has any ideas is jasoncurtin@eircom.n

    Yeah... I know he needs experience but at what cost? We seem to be a goal down every time he plays.

    Gazza part of the Future of the club, so we have to give him time. Think he has done well so far considering his age and the amount of pressure he is under. Has to be one of the youngest goalies in the prem who get's regular starts. Only concern i have is our defenders passing back to him, puts him in a awkward position sometimes.

    tbh a sensible, objective look at the fixture list when it came out would have benefitted alot of people.

    It was widely regarded and commented upon that Saints had a really tough fixture list for the start of the season. It's been a rough ride, but we are now playing the teams that we have a real chance of beating.
    Personally, given how we have played I think we've done bloody well.
    Ok so the final results haven't been great up until recently, however when you look at how we've played in those defeats you realise that this is a great squad with great potential.
    I don't think we will finish high up the table this season, however I do believe that we will stay up.

    Annihilation! And we beat the woodwork and officials.

    Still, the WUMs know better don't they?

    Nigel's out of his depth, the defence is no better than an average Championship defence, the midfield is too slow and our strikers waste too many chances.

    OR .........

    Now they've started to settle in, Gazza looks promising (and made a world-class save), the centre backs were fantastic (Fonte has proved me wrong), the fullbacks look like they've played at this level all their lives. (Did you see how Clyne headed away all the balls coming across the box? So much better than when Bale blew him away.), Cork has made a huge difference, Spiderman grows by the game, Punch is a revelation, Rickie makes something happen every game, even when he's not at his best (brilliant ball through to Punch which led to the first), Lallana is back to his best and Ramirez is starting to settle.

    Credit for much of this goes to the management team. I wonder if we would have played and won this well (and last week) if the boo boys had had their way and replaced Nigel.

Fingers crossed, the only other one that I saw take a knock was Spider who was caught by tackle from behind and may have had a dead leg, but played on regardless.
