Nigel Adkins disappointed with Saints' performance in defeat to Sunderland

First published in Sport

Manager Nigel Adkins was left to lament an “uncharacteristically flat” performance from his Saints team as they fell to a deflating defeat at home to Sunderland.

Steven Fletcher’s strike just before half-time separated the sides at St Mary’s, with the hosts unable to break the Black Cats’ dogged resistance after the interval.

The loss to their fellow strugglers leaves Saints 17th going into Christmas, out of the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference.

Adkins admitted the performance was not what he has come to expect from his players.

“It just didn’t happen for us today,” he said. “To me, it just seemed to be uncharacteristically flat, for whatever reason. Obviously, I’ll digest that.

“The goal we’ve conceded just before half-time from our point of view there’s obviously two or three people who could have done better in stopping the goal.

“That’s obviously given Sunderland something to hang onto in the second half and give them credit because they’ve defended well.

“We changed things round to try and give ourselves an opportunity to increase the tempo and find a way forwards to create openings and unfortunately we’ve not gone and scored any goals.”

Very disappointing performance, only Shaw and Fonte coming away with any credence, tactics were poor. so called class players basically chickening out, not liking the conditions. Officials got most decisions right, no complaints in that direction in my opinion.

"unfortunately we’ve not gone and scored any goals". Well if you bring on as substitute a "striker" who has not scored for 37 games (except into a breathalyser) then what do you expect?

Wife dragged me to Southampton for Xmas shopping today, I was enjoying a nice quiet pint in the Joshua Tree but had to leave at 4.30 as it became completely full of Stains fans leaving the game early.

I watched the game from the lower 41 Northam stand and admit i loved the result. But to be honest - sunderland edged a poor game and deserved the win.
I thought your fans were pretty good early on and surprised me but once sunderland scored it was afwul and you wouldent have believed there was 30000 there . Thats the truth.

Great save by Kelvin,first minute,loads of possesion,no goals,concede on the break,half time.
Second half conceded eveything until Davis came on,many 50-50 balls in midfield only they nearly all went to Sunderland.Almost scored in a late goalmouth scramble.
All in all Saints did not compete in the second half seemed to always be second to loose balls.
Very poor low energy display.
Proffesional display by Sunderland.
Used injury and substitutions to break Saints pressure every time.
Everything had to go route one through Rickie Lambert all 9 feet plus in the air.
How can this be explained after 2 weeks off?
Dissapointed!
Need their @rses kicked prior to playing Fulham.
STEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEve was the only player to show true ambition.
Mayuka looked like a boy lost.

LIFT IT UP SAINTS this is nowhere good enough.

Tale of two halves. Great tactical managerial display by O'Neil just completely shut the middle of the park down in the second half, strangled the game and nicked three points. Fear the break ruined our momentum, lack lustre and seemed to run out of steam and ideas. Look forward to bouncing back at Fulham. Merry Xmas Saints fans.

at least you could watch premier league football in hampshire ,and the only way you will do from now on .i was in the kingland north and saints fans kept singing .but some in the front were open to the elements as the wind was drowning them blowing the rain across
Possibly but the fans around me oozed negativity and thats the truth, every team has glory hunters but the whole crowd has to be as one, 12000 together is better than 30000 split and it showed, too many of you are just along for the ride where Pompey have found the core base of non stop loyal support.

and there you go ... were you at the game today...if you were you know what im talking about, but i suppose you wasent, ha ha ha ha as you like to add on to your comments.
I was and there are points in games where every game in every ground where the crowd gets quieter
But we are not delusional like you, we don't go around all the time protesting we have the greatest supporters of the bestest bestest ever club in the bestest world do we? Over 40% of your ground has been empty all season, You omitted to count the away fans in that 12000, usually its less than 10000...FACT. You boo your players and team, 4000 left with 20 mins to go a while back.
You wanna see real fans...take a look at Blackburn, they raised more money in three wks than you have in six months.
If you want to come on here and take the p1ss... that's fine, if you want to spout off about your glory days in the mid 20th century... that's ok too
But if you come on here raving about loyal hardcore support mate... you are gonna get laughed at. We had more fans in Lg 1 than you had in the PL!!

Fair and honest assessment of the game from 'our Nige' I think, we were way below par, but having said that Sunderland done a professional job on us, we woke in the last four minutes which was annoying (to say the least) as it proved we just weren't up for it today and that is not acceptable, still not in the bottom three and still feel positive we will finish above the bottom three.....here's to 2013 and Prem survival :)

Trying to look for the positives today ..

Saints don't play well after a break and all this talk of the training ground doesn't wash when the ball control is poor.

Kelv did make a good save early on - but he is not the Keeper to get the Team an extra 10 points a Season. None of our Keepers are ... and we could benefit from a Top Quality Keeper.

As Matt le Tiss said in the Echo - we would benefit from a Top Quality Centre Half in the Transfer Window.

The Crowd were flat today - but who could blame them after what was served up. That said Sunderland are a boring team and difficult to break down. I am amazed that they even scored.

The Team Selection and players on the bench were baffling - No J Rod and No Tad Lee.

Getting Rickie to Win Headers for Jason is not the answer - he missed a sitter early on - and when did he become good at smashing in goals regularly ?

Did we miss Adam Lallana - YES.

WE ARE IN A RELEGATION DOGFIGHT.

Everyone is sick of losing especially at home. Nigel talks about it not spoiling the weekend and trying to get something at Fulham.

WRONG ANSWER - Dave Merrington has got it nearer the mark. We go up on mass to dominate and FIGHT for 3 Points.

WE MUST IMPROVE OUR AWAY FORM - STARTING NOW !!

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

A bit like the Wigan at home, once they went ahead Sunderland knew the priceless value of 3 points and worked very hard to keep them.

Their goal was simple a 1 2 bang whilst Saints were too intricate and were snuffed out easily in the box. Disappointing and now we have gifted 6 home points to others members of the mini relegation division which we are most definitely in.

Come on Saints work harder!!

How can we trust your comments to be honest because when you first came on here you argued you were a Saints fan and now you admit to being a skunt?

All clubs have the plastics who expand the numbers when the team is in the higher leagues. We averaged 21k in Div1 and 26k in the Championship so yes the 'extras' aren't as passionate but it all adds up financially.

Why do you always claim to be at St Mary's when you are a skunt? That's not normal.

I was at the game and didn't see lots of people leaving early. Had they left as early as you suggest, they would have missed the substitution that you refer to. Then you would not have been able to pass the information on and comment negatively on a very promising player. I hope you enjoyed your pint at the Joshua. It is a pity your wife insisted on you missing the game, and lets hope you manage to be more assertive in the future.

I thought your fans were pretty good early on and surprised me but once sunderland scored it was afwul and you wouldent have believed there was 30000 there . Thats the truth.
Thanks for the tip, we will have that area disinfected before it is used again.

Wife dragged me to Southampton for Xmas shopping today, I was enjoying a nice quiet pint in the Joshua Tree but had to leave at 4.30 as it became completely full of Stains fans leaving the game early.
I was at the game and didn't see lots of people leaving early. Had they left as early as you suggest, they would have missed the substitution that you refer to. Then you would not have been able to pass the information on and comment negatively on a very promising player. I hope you enjoyed your pint at the Joshua. It is a pity your wife insisted on you missing the game, and lets hope you manage to be more assertive in the future.
I think it's all part of his fairytale life and fairytale existence where Pompey are the bigger club and have a massive support base. He actually believes it!

How can we trust your comments to be honest because when you first came on here you argued you were a Saints fan and now you admit to being a skunt?

All clubs have the plastics who expand the numbers when the team is in the higher leagues. We averaged 21k in Div1 and 26k in the Championship so yes the 'extras' aren't as passionate but it all adds up financially.

Why do you always claim to be at St Mary's when you are a skunt? That's not normal.
I dont care what you think but i was there today and you spend your life on the pompey site.... now that is a fact is it not ?

2 week break did no favours IMO. Sunderland won most of the game with their studs and Howard Webb is a joke,
far too much desperate hoofing and why does Punch put all the set pieces in, he should be on the end of them.
So many basic mistakes today.
O'Shea is their rock, we need someone like that in Jan. On the plus side Kelv was good and a great save.

So so disappointing today. I think after the recent good run of results, and the 2-week break, the players thought that they only had to turn up to bag another 3 points against a side who have been struggling. Out-played and out-thought by a much more professional side, they scored their goal at the key time just before half time and then never let it go.


On the bright side I think Jose stepped up to the captaincy well, and the next 2 games are away to sides who are not doing too well and we should be able to get 2 points from those games. And Boxing Day sales shopping in thee West End!!
I was excited to see Mayuka start a game, but it was an English December mudbath, and I always think that players like Mayuka, Guly, and Gaston do not realise what they are letting themselves in for when they come to England - their skills are obliterated by pitch conditions for half the season.

I was excited to see Mayuka start a game, but it was an English December mudbath, and I always think that players like Mayuka, Guly, and Gaston do not realise what they are letting themselves in for when they come to England - their skills are obliterated by pitch conditions for half the season.
So why don't we rely on our Academy rather than play these over paid over rated individuals. Ward-Prowse and Shaw have stepped up to the mark I've no doubt Reeves, Hoskins, Sinclair, and Stephens could do likewise!!!!!

at least you could watch premier league football in hampshire ,and the only way you will do from now on .i was in the kingland north and saints fans kept singing .but some in the front were open to the elements as the wind was drowning them blowing the rain across
Possibly but the fans around me oozed negativity and thats the truth, every team has glory hunters but the whole crowd has to be as one, 12000 together is better than 30000 split and it showed, too many of you are just along for the ride where Pompey have found the core base of non stop loyal support.
How can we trust your comments to be honest because when you first came on here you argued you were a Saints fan and now you admit to being a skunt?

All clubs have the plastics who expand the numbers when the team is in the higher leagues. We averaged 21k in Div1 and 26k in the Championship so yes the 'extras' aren't as passionate but it all adds up financially.

Why do you always claim to be at St Mary's when you are a skunt? That's not normal.
I dont care what you think but i was there today and you spend your life on the pompey site.... now that is a fact is it not ?
But accordng to you, you went to a Saints game today and spend your life on this site too, so your point is ??????
Does Seed pretend to go to Pompey games??????????
Who is talking to you ...... from the first minute i posted on here i was called everyname under the sun even though i said i went to watch saints and pompey, ive never posted on the pompey website but when ive looked on there its the same faces from here so if i post on here i play along with you as ive had nothing but abuse..im not bothered in the slightest but i was at the game today and i dont think you were, has there been a new name on this site for months..no because you bully them off . FACT
I don't bully anyone off mate, I know you have been on here for a while, I know you like to get those early first comments in about tangohead etc,I don't post on the News site and I don't call people names or abuse posters. I never respond to the drivel you usually post, but tonight you have my undivided attention. I have seen some of the abuse but haven't been a party to it.
I like the banter between us and the Skates but if you are gonna act like a wum, what do you expect??
Seed asked a legitimate question- If you are a PFC fan why go to St.Mary's?
I don't know why you wouldn't think I was there, what did you think of the linesmen today then ???

Tackles were mainly non-existent today and the Team need a right kick up the Arse before Boxing Day.

Sunderland did not have that many fans - but they were noisy due to the poor football served up.

Was at the game today and those who fuss over captaincy....... Shame on you, today proved the importance of lallana. He's as important to us as gerrard to Liverpool.
Same as last season no plan b. Sunderland came to not lose (glad if rumour true that o' neill didn't sign) but we never looked like scoring. £7m signing never made it on the pitch?
These are the times I question Adkins, what was sdr or guly ever going to bring us?
Without lallana we had no outlet or urgency. Proof if needed that we need to off load a few and get some quality in. Cruel to be kind, the likes of shaw, cork, ramirez and clyne need more quality to work with.

Again IMO - you're right !!

There were times today when we had to take control of the ball and keep possession and make the pass.

Instead it was in the air and hooooooof before losing possession so that Sunderland could get back on the ball.

Believe me when I say they are not all that as a Team (reminded me of Boro in the Championship)

It was a Sickener to see O'Neill punch his fist in the air and the celebrating Sunderland Fans.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO THEIR GROUND AND RAMMING THIS RESULT DOWN THEIR THROATS - See what O'Neill thinks of that when we come back with 3 Points and send them into the relegation zone with one game to play.

God did we miss Adam. I really thought we'd be ok without him with depth in the midfield but I was very wrong. We were dire. First half we dominated but their keeper had nothing to do whereas Kelv did.

It's Christmas wrap up time for the opinions and though I love Saints til I die it pains me to say that my verdict is not favourable or positive.

We started the season with such bright displays against Man City and Man U making their goalie earn their money. It seemed that we just needed a bit of luck to hit the back of the net and bring home some 3 pointers.

Our backs have learned valuable lessons and Luke Shaw now looks the part. Add another CB to the squad and everything should be rosy.

But it isn't luck lacking at the front is it? The quick passing fancy moves are not getting through premiership defences and are not producing enough shots on goal.

We have no options, no specialist pace out wide, we don't see crosses coming in to Rickie to let him play his natural strengths in the box.

I love Nigel Adkins, the players love him and we have a happy consultative regime in the first team.

However it is honestly time to weight the chances for the future. This isn't knee jerk reaction after a few early season games it is time to put yourself in Nicola Cortese's shoes and ask yourself is the first team improving enough to survive and kick on? Are the tactics and players showing premiership level performances week in week out?

No! is my gut-wrenched answer. I have no idea what should happen next as we have no idea of the input and direction of the stratagem sessions at the club but I do think Nicola should look someone with answers that ticks boxes because Les Reed and Nigel Adkins don't have the answers we need to climb out of our survival quest and kick on. Personally I'd like to explore the idea of Nigel Adkins as boss of development in Reeds place and bring in a hard nosed organised manager for the firsts. It's time to stop ****-footing around and kick some butts.

Maybe a couple of new players in January will fix it and all will be well? Maybe?

Good Luck Nicola I every faith you'll sort it.

Although you're right ...

We have to get it going at FULHAM AWAY !!!

We have to work exceptionally hard and score to get something at small seated stadium STOKE AWAY !

And we need to be at the Top of our Game to get a Famous Win against Arsenal !! (They will try and cheat and get a penalty - that is their latest ploy)

NO SAINTS FAN will tolerate losing at Home to Arsenal and then Everton.

Whatever is going on with 2 weeks off and the leisurely time in the Training Ground is nowhere near good enough !!

Tackles were mainly non-existent today and the Team need a right kick up the Arse before Boxing Day.

Sunderland did not have that many fans - but they were noisy due to the poor football served up.

Nigel be honest about where we are with the Teams performance.
Play your best Team (No rotation) and WIN AT FULHAM AWAY !!

COYR.
Too many long balls for me today, thought Big Sam had taken over for a minute there!


STID
Again IMO - you're right !!

There were times today when we had to take control of the ball and keep possession and make the pass.

Instead it was in the air and hooooooof before losing possession so that Sunderland could get back on the ball.

Believe me when I say they are not all that as a Team (reminded me of Boro in the Championship)

It was a Sickener to see O'Neill punch his fist in the air and the celebrating Sunderland Fans.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO THEIR GROUND AND RAMMING THIS RESULT DOWN THEIR THROATS - See what O'Neill thinks of that when we come back with 3 Points and send them into the relegation zone with one game to play.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON. COYR.
They were a poor side but had more hunger and were first to every 50/50 ball.

Why are our players so shot shy? So many chances to hit a first time shot. Go for it lads, if it balloons off into the crowd so what? Have another go.

Really today should have ended up 0-0 but a moment of sloppy defending gifted them a goal. Overall our defence is much better but still makes mistakes.

Shaw is awesome and was my MOTM.

All clubs have the plastics who expand the numbers when the team is in the higher leagues. We averaged 21k in Div1 and 26k in the Championship so yes the 'extras' aren't as passionate but it all adds up financially.

Why do you always claim to be at St Mary's when you are a skunt? That's not normal.
I dont care what you think but i was there today and you spend your life on the pompey site.... now that is a fact is it not ?

2 Why do you go to Saints games?

However, when we bought an overweight, unfit Sharp in the January window who had also suffered recent terrible personal problems I can't see it was to help achieve promotion. It had to be longer term than that. By all accounts he had a great pre season so the loan did seem very strange.

0-0 was written all over this game.

Shaw was tenacious and Jose was OK.

Fans were screaming for the players to shoot in the first half when intricate arsenal like passes near the box were being lined up for us to lose the ball.

A very average performance. Was pleased to see Maka start but was disappointed. Amazed to SDR on the bench and even more as first change. NA was spot on - a very flat performance but that must come from the Boss. Gaston had some neat touches, Rickie battled away and Punch needs to shot. Defence looks solid enough still and why oh why was Spider taken off.
No energy little spark and most worrying lacking passion.

Sunderland came for the draw similar to Bristol City last season and mugged us off. Lallana is influential on others non more so than lambert. He's busy, opens pockets of space for others and nearly always involved in everything positive with our play. Out should go sdr, guly, sharp, Barnard and in some one with international experience who can lift the team.

s wouldn't have taken 4th from bottom going into Christmas?? Exactly, we all would have unless, you r a lying Skate!! There are 3 teams @ the mo worse than us coz the table never lies okay? We need 7 more home wins which will be difficult yet, I totally believe we can do it. Fancy a result against Fulham
& The Arse and we will be ready for the new year. The Mighty Saints will prevail just wait & see. COYR!!!

Sorry but sharp is not the answer
Maybe not but how many goals do you think he would have scored this term if given as nuch game time as some of the none scorer's.
6 goals so far for Nott Forest and 10 goals in 16 starts for Saints. It's about scoring goals not answers.
Ridiculous loan IMO.
I don't know if Sharp is the answer or not.

However, when we bought an overweight, unfit Sharp in the January window who had also suffered recent terrible personal problems I can't see it was to help achieve promotion. It had to be longer term than that. By all accounts he had a great pre season so the loan did seem very strange.
I thought it was strange too but wondered if it had something to do with balancing the books so to speak following confirmation of the Gaston deal as it all occurred last minute.

Although you're right ...

We have to get it going at FULHAM AWAY !!!

We have to work exceptionally hard and score to get something at small seated stadium STOKE AWAY !

And we need to be at the Top of our Game to get a Famous Win against Arsenal !! (They will try and cheat and get a penalty - that is their latest ploy)

NO SAINTS FAN will tolerate losing at Home to Arsenal and then Everton.

Whatever is going on with 2 weeks off and the leisurely time in the Training Ground is nowhere near good enough !!

Tackles were mainly non-existent today and the Team need a right kick up the Arse before Boxing Day.

Sunderland did not have that many fans - but they were noisy due to the poor football served up.

Nigel be honest about where we are with the Teams performance.
Play your best Team (No rotation) and WIN AT FULHAM AWAY !!

COYR.
Too many long balls for me today, thought Big Sam had taken over for a minute there!


STID
Again IMO - you're right !!

There were times today when we had to take control of the ball and keep possession and make the pass.

Instead it was in the air and hooooooof before losing possession so that Sunderland could get back on the ball.

Believe me when I say they are not all that as a Team (reminded me of Boro in the Championship)

It was a Sickener to see O'Neill punch his fist in the air and the celebrating Sunderland Fans.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING TO THEIR GROUND AND RAMMING THIS RESULT DOWN THEIR THROATS - See what O'Neill thinks of that when we come back with 3 Points and send them into the relegation zone with one game to play.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON. COYR.
They were a poor side but had more hunger and were first to every 50/50 ball.

Why are our players so shot shy? So many chances to hit a first time shot. Go for it lads, if it balloons off into the crowd so what? Have another go.

Really today should have ended up 0-0 but a moment of sloppy defending gifted them a goal. Overall our defence is much better but still makes mistakes.

Shaw is awesome and was my MOTM.
Agree with your assessment.

0-0 was written all over this game.

Shaw was tenacious and Jose was OK.

Fans were screaming for the players to shoot in the first half when intricate arsenal like passes near the box were being lined up for us to lose the ball.

AM CONCERNED WITH OUR AWAY FORM AND WITH ALL THE FANS TRAVELLING ..... WE DEMAND THE WIN ON BOXING DAY.

COYR
We didn't play our quick flowing game which would normally have brought us a couple of goals against a side like this. We never looked like scoring, always taking another touch instead of a quick pass or shot.

Maybe a water logged pitch didn't help but we were poor. Pumping the ball forward against a big side like this with little Mayuka out jumped every single time was never going to produce anything. Can't remember Rickie getting off the deck either.

A wn today and we would have been set up beautifully for the games ahead. But we didn't.

Sunderland came for the draw similar to Bristol City last season and mugged us off. Lallana is influential on others non more so than lambert.

Out should go sdr, guly, sharp, Barnard and in some one with international experience who can lift the team.
The posters are not being overly pessimistic tonight - there is more honesty than usual.

YES - We do need to offload and YES more Top Quality will help.

We do need that quality Centre Half and a Top Quality Keeper otherwise we will drift in and out of the relegation Zone all season.

Look - We are better than QPR and Reading and ....

LET'S GET THE MUCH NEEDED RESULT AT FULHAM !!

Then why did we buy him?

I totally agree about Lallana but we've got to be able to field a side without him or anyone else for that matter.

Given his injury the side fielded today is the one I would have picked and with the likes of Punch, Spider, Cork and Ramirez I would still have expected to create.

Lambert as much as I rate him almost looked like he was sulking without al.
Today proved how much we rely on lallana, remember games in previous seasons when he didn't play and we struggled?
We were dis jointed today. Lambert is a typical no 10 who needs to creat but there was not many players offering, and the understanding with mayaka wasn't there.
Where was Jay rod? £7m and didn't play when we need goals, these are the times I question Adkins who did sign him.

Partly Agree - what about J Rod after his display against Reading ...

Why SDR - why not Tad Lee ?

Pleasing players and Squad rotation is not the answer - after getting together a settled winning side.

PLAYERS NEED A GEE UP AND A FIGHTING WINNING DISPLAY ON BOXING DAY.

Best laugh today, cheered me right up

12000 core non stop loyal support?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Brilliant you skates are so funny sometimes

and there you go ... were you at the game today...if you were you know what im talking about, but i suppose you wasent, ha ha ha ha as you like to add on to your comments.
I was and there are points in games where every game in every ground where the crowd gets quieter
But we are not delusional like you, we don't go around all the time protesting we have the greatest supporters of the bestest bestest ever club in the bestest world do we? Over 40% of your ground has been empty all season, You omitted to count the away fans in that 12000, usually its less than 10000...FACT. You boo your players and team, 4000 left with 20 mins to go a while back.
You wanna see real fans...take a look at Blackburn, they raised more money in three wks than you have in six months.
If you want to come on here and take the p1ss... that's fine, if you want to spout off about your glory days in the mid 20th century... that's ok too
But if you come on here raving about loyal hardcore support mate... you are gonna get laughed at. We had more fans in Lg 1 than you had in the PL!!


HAHAHAHA


STID
Only when the weather is dry then , Ha Ha Ha Ha
Nothing to add about the bestest ever bestest hardcore 40% missing bestest loyal bestest ever less than 10000 ever booing bestest ever support then ???
No wonder you came to St.Mary's today then!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

No-one can be that stoo pid ...

Yet after all the advertising that the Hartlepool Game was off ...

Some Skunts still travelled and were gob smacked when they were told at the ground.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Brilliant you skates are so funny sometimes STID[/p][/quote]and there you go ... were you at the game today...if you were you know what im talking about, but i suppose you wasent, ha ha ha ha as you like to add on to your comments.[/p][/quote]I was and there are points in games where every game in every ground where the crowd gets quieter But we are not delusional like you, we don't go around all the time protesting we have the greatest supporters of the bestest bestest ever club in the bestest world do we? Over 40% of your ground has been empty all season, You omitted to count the away fans in that 12000, usually its less than 10000...FACT. You boo your players and team, 4000 left with 20 mins to go a while back. You wanna see real fans...take a look at Blackburn, they raised more money in three wks than you have in six months. If you want to come on here and take the p1ss... that's fine, if you want to spout off about your glory days in the mid 20th century... that's ok too But if you come on here raving about loyal hardcore support mate... you are gonna get laughed at. We had more fans in Lg 1 than you had in the PL!! HAHAHAHA STID[/p][/quote]Only when the weather is dry then , Ha Ha Ha Ha[/p][/quote]Nothing to add about the bestest ever bestest hardcore 40% missing bestest loyal bestest ever less than 10000 ever booing bestest ever support then ??? No wonder you came to St.Mary's today then! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA STID[/p][/quote]No-one can be that stoo pid ... Yet after all the advertising that the Hartlepool Game was off ... Some Skunts still travelled and were gob smacked when they were told at the ground.

Listen my friend we were very poor today and did our chances of staying up no good whatsoever. However, it is far from over and I remain optimistic.

We have had back to back promotions and are back in the Prem. Even if we do go down the long term is obviously very promising with sensible investment, particularly in the academy.

I would suggest your problems are of a far more serious nature. But you carry on pretending. You lot are sleep walking off a cliff.

It's Christmas wrap up time for the opinions and though I love Saints til I die it pains me to say that my verdict is not favourable or positive.

We started the season with such bright displays against Man City and Man U making their goalie earn their money. It seemed that we just needed a bit of luck to hit the back of the net and bring home some 3 pointers.

Our backs have learned valuable lessons and Luke Shaw now looks the part. Add another CB to the squad and everything should be rosy.

But it isn't luck lacking at the front is it? The quick passing fancy moves are not getting through premiership defences and are not producing enough shots on goal.

We have no options, no specialist pace out wide, we don't see crosses coming in to Rickie to let him play his natural strengths in the box.

I love Nigel Adkins, the players love him and we have a happy consultative regime in the first team.

However it is honestly time to weight the chances for the future. This isn't knee jerk reaction after a few early season games it is time to put yourself in Nicola Cortese's shoes and ask yourself is the first team improving enough to survive and kick on? Are the tactics and players showing premiership level performances week in week out?

No! is my gut-wrenched answer. I have no idea what should happen next as we have no idea of the input and direction of the stratagem sessions at the club but I do think Nicola should look someone with answers that ticks boxes because Les Reed and Nigel Adkins don't have the answers we need to climb out of our survival quest and kick on. Personally I'd like to explore the idea of Nigel Adkins as boss of development in Reeds place and bring in a hard nosed organised manager for the firsts. It's time to stop ****-footing around and kick some butts.

Maybe a couple of new players in January will fix it and all will be well? Maybe?

Good Luck Nicola I every faith you'll sort it.
Dan very well put. The fact that we have given away 6 invaluable home points to 2 fellow strugglers underlines we have a problem somewhere.

I cannot fathom the negativity by some against Guly, today he came on and instantly worked the ball into a dangerous position.

Where is Lee? A far better player than Steve de Ridder.

This club has a brilliant future with strong performances by the U21 and u18 squads but right now the senior squad is struggling to escape a fast return to the Championship.

Everything must be done to prevent the throwing away our Premier status.

The 2 home defeats to other strugglers worries me greatly.

Maybe not but how many goals do you think he would have scored this term if given as nuch game time as some of the none scorer's.
6 goals so far for Nott Forest and 10 goals in 16 starts for Saints. It's about scoring goals not answers.
Ridiculous loan IMO.
I don't know if Sharp is the answer or not.

However, when we bought an overweight, unfit Sharp in the January window who had also suffered recent terrible personal problems I can't see it was to help achieve promotion. It had to be longer term than that. By all accounts he had a great pre season so the loan did seem very strange.
I repeat, sharp is not the answer. That is fact, unless we are planning to play in the championship.
Sunderland came for the draw similar to Bristol City last season and mugged us off. Lallana is influential on others non more so than lambert. He's busy, opens pockets of space for others and nearly always involved in everything positive with our play. Out should go sdr, guly, sharp, Barnard and in some one with international experience who can lift the team.
Then why did we buy him?

I totally agree about Lallana but we've got to be able to field a side without him or anyone else for that matter.

Given his injury the side fielded today is the one I would have picked and with the likes of Punch, Spider, Cork and Ramirez I would still have expected to create.
Partly Agree - what about J Rod after his display against Reading ...

Why SDR - why not Tad Lee ?

Pleasing players and Squad rotation is not the answer - after getting together a settled winning side.

PLAYERS NEED A GEE UP AND A FIGHTING WINNING DISPLAY ON BOXING DAY.

COYR.
See Liverpoooool are in for Daniel Sturridge ...

If only we could source and sign that sort of quality in the Transfer Window.

Lambert as much as I rate him almost looked like he was sulking without al.
Today proved how much we rely on lallana, remember games in previous seasons when he didn't play and we struggled?
We were dis jointed today. Lambert is a typical no 10 who needs to creat but there was not many players offering, and the understanding with mayaka wasn't there.
Where was Jay rod? £7m and didn't play when we need goals, these are the times I question Adkins who did sign him.
Lambert wasn't happy today for sure.

Yes I do remember struggling without Lallana before but we have added Luke on the left and £12m Ramirez and we have a revitalised Puncheon so I wouldn't have expected his absence to be so great - but it was huge. Remember many say we can't win without Cork whose return co-incided with a turn in fortune. We have to be able to deal with this reliance on individuals.

Some say why not J Rod today. Yet many have been questioning the £7m spent on him. Some called for Mayuka (including me) and De Ridder (not including me), we weren't impressed by either today. Some call for Tad Lee but the chap in front of me saw him a couple of weeks back in the U21 side and said he was appalling.

I don't know the answers but I do believe we have to utilise the squad to allow for different teams, different tactics and different conditions. Also with fixture conjestion if you play the same 11 you get a Norwich for every Newcastle game.

It's Christmas wrap up time for the opinions and though I love Saints til I die it pains me to say that my verdict is not favourable or positive.

We started the season with such bright displays against Man City and Man U making their goalie earn their money. It seemed that we just needed a bit of luck to hit the back of the net and bring home some 3 pointers.

Our backs have learned valuable lessons and Luke Shaw now looks the part. Add another CB to the squad and everything should be rosy.

But it isn't luck lacking at the front is it? The quick passing fancy moves are not getting through premiership defences and are not producing enough shots on goal.

We have no options, no specialist pace out wide, we don't see crosses coming in to Rickie to let him play his natural strengths in the box.

I love Nigel Adkins, the players love him and we have a happy consultative regime in the first team.

However it is honestly time to weight the chances for the future. This isn't knee jerk reaction after a few early season games it is time to put yourself in Nicola Cortese's shoes and ask yourself is the first team improving enough to survive and kick on? Are the tactics and players showing premiership level performances week in week out?

No! is my gut-wrenched answer. I have no idea what should happen next as we have no idea of the input and direction of the stratagem sessions at the club but I do think Nicola should look someone with answers that ticks boxes because Les Reed and Nigel Adkins don't have the answers we need to climb out of our survival quest and kick on. Personally I'd like to explore the idea of Nigel Adkins as boss of development in Reeds place and bring in a hard nosed organised manager for the firsts. It's time to stop ****-footing around and kick some butts.

Maybe a couple of new players in January will fix it and all will be well? Maybe?

Good Luck Nicola I every faith you'll sort it.
Good post DAN. With you all the way apart from moving Nigel. Get rid of Les Reed and let Nigel and Nicola bring in the players. Yes we need another centre back and i would like to see Ward-Prowse getting games. With Spider..Cork.. and Wardy in midfield i feel we could boss it better than we have this season. Lets hope todays performance was a one off, if not we really are in trouble.
Have a Good Christmas , and dont get sunburnt.

Dan very well put. The fact that we have given away 6 invaluable home points to 2 fellow strugglers underlines we have a problem somewhere.

I cannot fathom the negativity by some against Guly, today he came on and instantly worked the ball into a dangerous position.

Where is Lee? A far better player than Steve de Ridder.

This club has a brilliant future with strong performances by the U21 and u18 squads but right now the senior squad is struggling to escape a fast return to the Championship.

Everything must be done to prevent the throwing away our Premier status.

The 2 home defeats to other strugglers worries me greatly.
Christmas is performance appraisal time for most teams. We have made progress in the defence but have gone backwards in the attack through trying to make the game more complicated than it needs to be. Our players haven't stepped up enough to play play the kind of game they attempt.. too many stray passes game after game. Not blaming individuals in particular just simply saying they have not stepped up and are not getting the goals and results we should be.

As fans we've got to stop lurching from one extreme to another. After our recent good run we were saying we didn't need strengthening other than a CB and that Nigel was king, after one loss we've written off the team and manager again. We do the same thing every time we win or lose. We're going to do both of those all season.

Hi DAN, would agree with most of your post. Would not move Nigel, he is our manager for a long time i hope. Get rid of Les Reed YES. Let Nigel and Nicola obtain any future players. A centre back , cover for Shaw and a really fast or skilfull wide midfield. Would also like to see Ward-Prowse get more time on the pitch. With Cork Spider and Wardy i feel we would control games better.

Have a GOOD CHRISTMAS and dont get sunburnt mate.

No lurching here - the recent improvement meant we are in a relegation battle as opposed to relegated. Shame we could not get anything at all from Sunderland but they are in a false position and this was not really the relegation match up it seemed.

It looks like that it has developed into a four way battle between Wigan,Reading, QPR and us. It would seem Reading and QPR have too much to do now but Wigan are experienced in this situation and their escape last year was miraculous. We can only hope that lightning does not strike twice.

I think we'd still benefit from more cover at CB.
However, strange a it may sound, I think after our recent games against Reading and Sunderland in particular,I think our problem is lack of penetration in the final third. Seems like we're dominating,but not killing teams off..
We don't seem to have enough shots on target, so it seems clear we're not getting the ball to players in clear shooting positions enough, and also we're not hitting it early enough when we get a chance. So maybe those calling for attacking reinforcements aren't actually too wrong?

One positive is Fonte's improvement in form - another, is the on-going class of Luke Shaw. Adkins' challenge is to help everyone in the team believe that they can beat anyone in this league. No more talk of difficult games ahead - no more respect before games like Liverpool - all of the teams are there for the taking. We will progress when every player is up for winning every game - fighting for every ball and shooting on site of goal. Yesterday, only two players turned up with the right attitude which is why we lost. Adkins has a lot of work to do in achieving the right consistent psychological mind-set and, maybe, even he, needs to start believing a bit more - his attitude before the Liverpool game ensured that we were not prepared with a winning attitude. We looked scared and in awe of an average side.

When watching England with each passing year until we stopped be able to play altogether (2006 onwards) I would despair at our slowness of passing and inability to think ahead..

It is not enough to control the ball or pass straight, more the ability to know what you and your team mates are going to do before they even do it...

Technically we have gifted players BUT christ on a bike we are no Barcelona or Arsenal of old and yet we are trying to walk the ball into the net, when that fails hopeless hit and hope long balls are lobbed into the area which average defenders have no problem with...

We have to massively speed up our attack and passing decisions we looked good in the Championship now other teams think and act quicker, hence we have all the possession yet still lose..they see a chance and take it, we need that cutting edge...

...the cuttting edge could be attack, midfield or quick movement from defence to attack, it is not so much about signing's in certain areas more about speed of thought of all the players.

This is were we are lacking..it is about the teams whole approach not just looking for one talisman.

looks that way. But yesterday was a massive opportunity to put ourselves in a comfortable position and the way it was squandered by a perfromance of total ineptitude beggars belief. I suggest Mr Adkins' concentrates on the whats going on the pitch rather than milking the blind adulation of the the Northam end. There were two weeks to prepare for this game and define a game plan without AL, but the side he put out never looked like clicking into gear. Yawning gaps between the front players who did not link up throughout and zero goal threat over the entire 94 mins. Spider is the player with the best range of passing in the team and we have good players who can exploit a well placed long ball from him. But clearly he's drilled to play it short. Its no good having posession if you dont do anything with it - I think the blind adherence to is making us slow, boring and predictable. Sunderland hardly broke sweat for their win and that really irked me. relegation written large.

Obviously a bad result,should have had the ability to beat a poor sunderland side,I cant see it changing until we get a quality CB to free up one of the holding midfielders sitting in front of the back four.
Lets face it that was a great idea to substitute for a dodgy back four but its a temp fix not the solution.
Trouble the price to pay for that is a lack of width.
And the lack of a plan B is again becoming apparent.
Im optimistic and think that in jan if the CB issue is dealt with,plan B will emerge.
Chins up people,the fat lady isnt even warming up yet.

Absolutely the best post post I've read in the two months I've been on this thread. We have tried 'to the walk the ball into the net' a lot this season. I said we need to speed our play up and have a cutting edge in the final third and I got called a skate. Thank God we have some fans who understand the game! Our play is way too predictable and even a mediocre team which is well prepared, like Sunderland, can deal with long balls or our slow passing build ups.

Sorry but sharp is not the answer
Maybe not but how many goals do you think he would have scored this term if given as nuch game time as some of the none scorer's.
6 goals so far for Nott Forest and 10 goals in 16 starts for Saints. It's about scoring goals not answers.
Ridiculous loan IMO.
I don't know if Sharp is the answer or not.

However, when we bought an overweight, unfit Sharp in the January window who had also suffered recent terrible personal problems I can't see it was to help achieve promotion. It had to be longer term than that. By all accounts he had a great pre season so the loan did seem very strange.
I repeat, sharp is not the answer. That is fact, unless we are planning to play in the championship.
Sunderland came for the draw similar to Bristol City last season and mugged us off. Lallana is influential on others non more so than lambert. He's busy, opens pockets of space for others and nearly always involved in everything positive with our play. Out should go sdr, guly, sharp, Barnard and in some one with international experience who can lift the team.
Then why did we buy him?

I totally agree about Lallana but we've got to be able to field a side without him or anyone else for that matter.

Given his injury the side fielded today is the one I would have picked and with the likes of Punch, Spider, Cork and Ramirez I would still have expected to create.
Partly Agree - what about J Rod after his display against Reading ...

Why SDR - why not Tad Lee ?

Pleasing players and Squad rotation is not the answer - after getting together a settled winning side.

PLAYERS NEED A GEE UP AND A FIGHTING WINNING DISPLAY ON BOXING DAY.

COYR.
Nige has come out and said Mayuka and Ramirez have been linking up well in training and that's why he got the nod of J-Rod.

SDR would of been my choice to come on left hand side and like Mayuka must of been training well last 2 weeks.

I really can't see what else Nige could of done yesterday, the players just didnt do it for him yesterday and we must now pick ourselves up for the Fulham game. Will be interesting to see what tactics we employ, we have generally been quite negative away from home this season and I would quite like us to give it go against a struggling Fulham side and pick up the 3 points.

So before yesterday’s game our recent form had us 5th in the league. One loss on a day when the weather didn’t help our style of play, and there's doom gloom. Let’s just look at the bigger picture. We were always going to lose more games than we won this season. Back to back promotions are one thing. But we are in the PL now playing the big boys, and not sitting in a relegation shot. It could be a lot worse. For me the biggest improvement has been our back line. Shipping goals for funny at the start of the season, I feel for the most part the boys have learnt quickly, still improvements to make, but heading in the right direction.

where is that then after relegation 6000 has gone missing .they have stayed loyal .pompey fans are the same as most fans .you get 11 000 in league one .saints had 24.000 fans most games some 32.000 .and more support in league one away only 2nd behind massive sheff weds .so there is the souths best most loyal support .argument over taxi for kent121 .as is should be .as shown on wiki .121 million debt created

That!

Meanwhile, while this thread has a range of sensible posts (some I agree with, others I don't) and is far better than yesterday's 'match' thread, there's still a lot of WUM/skunt drivel. Why have people stopped the shhhhhing?

I've just posted this on the 'match' thread and think it's also relevant here.
--------------------
--------------------
------

"Not the best couple of days I've ever had.

First, Air France screwed up our journey from Strasbourg to Porto and we got stranded in Rome.

Then, having been rerouted a day later via Madrid, I tuned in to find out that we had lost.

Then, I ploughed through the above pile of mindless wit and repartee from WUM's, bored skunts, idiots who, once again after one poor match, start calling for Nigel's head, the Don's head and half the players' heads. And, to cap it off, decent fellow fans who should know better are responding to the WUMs and skunts. WHY?

It's Christmas, the good Lord's birthday, the season of peace and goodwill, time to eat, drink, be merry and shhhhhhhhh!!!!

So, 3 positives and 1 negative:
+1 : Mayuka got game time
+2 : De Ridder is alive
+3 : We're not in the bottom 3
-1 : Everything to do with the last match. :(

Oh well, it could be worse; we're not PFC, it's sunny and quite warm here in Portugal and I'm not flying back with Air France.

Now, moving forward, is Fulham still on?"

I thought your fans were pretty good early on and surprised me but once sunderland scored it was afwul and you wouldent have believed there was 30000 there . Thats the truth.
at least you could watch premier league football in hampshire ,and the only way you will do from now on .i was in the kingland north and saints fans kept singing .but some in the front were open to the elements as the wind was drowning them blowing the rain across
Possibly but the fans around me oozed negativity and thats the truth, every team has glory hunters but the whole crowd has to be as one, 12000 together is better than 30000 split and it showed, too many of you are just along for the ride where Pompey have found the core base of non stop loyal support.
glory hunters there or not, we have always had way more 'solid' than 12000, more like 20000.
Sad performance though

COYR
Perhaps st marys would be better with the 20000 true supporters singing their hearts out and not 10000 sitting like dummies as i witnessed yesterday .
If anyone really thought that was superb vocal support fair enough.

Btw, while not defending the performance, which sounded way below par, how would we be feeling if the game had ended 0-0, or if the one slip which led to a goal had been at the other end? A whole world better no doubt.

To show how thin the margins between success and failiure can be, take Reading and Man City. What if that had ended 0-0? One moment right at the death and the post-match emotions of both sets of supporters was completely changed.

So so disappointing today. I think after the recent good run of results, and the 2-week break, the players thought that they only had to turn up to bag another 3 points against a side who have been struggling.

On the bright side I think Jose stepped up to the captaincy well, and the next 2 games are away to sides who are not doing too well and we should be able to get 2 points from those games. And Boxing Day sales shopping in thee West End!!
I was excited to see Mayuka start a game, but it was an English December mudbath, and I always think that players like Mayuka, Guly, and Gaston do not realise what they are letting themselves in for when they come to England - their skills are obliterated by pitch conditions for half the season.
Where were you ?

Back in time,at the old DELL in the 60's perhaps?

OUR PITCH IS A LIKE A BOWLING GREEN!

So no excuses for them, there.
If you think that it was a mudbath, I suggest you need to go to SPECKSAVERS.

A Serious point has been raised. We are out-sung too often at St Mary's. Worst case was against the Skates last year, that was just feckin embarassing! I suppose a lot of the lads who used to make The Dell so noisy have been priced out by modern corporate, family friendly marketing packages. Whatever happened to the great working class escape! The lads working out chants in the Corner Flag or Bedfords beforehand.
We need more quality, we lacked ideas & Yoshida's distribution was awful, still not convinced by him. Shaw should have been marking closer on the goal but he's young and will learn. Fonte has to boss that defence much bettter and I swear I have never seen a player look less bothered about missing such a crucial chance as feckin Do Prado late on. Why is he still allowed to disgace the red and white, is he holding somebody's mum hostage or something?

4 Trophies for Pompey

3 more than Stains

2 x Champions of England

36 years and counting, and we'll all still taking the pee.


ps I did take a few liberties with the shirt numbers as I understand MLT, Keegan and Paine mostly wore the 7 shirt; but nobody's perfect. Congrats to Terry on the minor 3rd div title though.

Watched the game live on the net - and quite honestly we never looked like creating anything. Time after time Ramirez was guilty of giving the ball away cheaply - didn't fancy the conditions?
They punted the ball aimlesly towards the forwards - and Puncheon looked a shadow of his recent self.
I missed the goal (link froze) but it sounds like Sunderland got lucky with a misshit shot landing at Fletchers feet.
Disappointed but it's a long old season with many twists and turns.
Fulham next - I wonder if the lallana factor massive affected the team morale? He is a big part of the set up and his drive and skill were sadly missed.
We need someone with a bit more vision, an eye for the pass and deliver it...we gave too much possession away cheaply.
Frustrated as ever - but I keep telling myself it's only a game!

Not always so Stras I'm diabetic so hold the sugared doughnuts ta.. I was elated at the early results against Man C and Man U.. heck we cudda shudda won but we are almost half way. We can't rely on refs or luck. Didn't see a single player slip over in the game.. I'm sure SMS pitch is good for it.

Warrens and Bran.. spot on track. Our lads are working hard to instil the intuition with silent training at speed etc but time is running out and there are times in a game when a burst down the wing and a good hard cross to a guy like Rickie produces a game breaker.. we can't persist with an ideal if it fails to produce for 90 mins.. we should be throwing in wing play in the same way as a good fast bowler uses his fast yorker or a bouncer.. do it too often and they suss it.
we should have beaten Sunderland.. I think is brings back mems of losing to them in the 70s.

Ha! Trouble is, too many Saints fans have, in recent years, had too many doughnuts - some have even been chocolate coated (the doughnuts, not the fans!). Thus, they've started turning their noses up if they don't get served the very best, fresh, homemade doughnuts.

Those of us old enough to remember the 60s will testify that the best doughnuts were made by the world's bestest best ever TV chef, Fanny Craddock. So, to all those miserable bleeders who are now disappointed if their 'doughnuts' are not of the finest quality, I'd just like to say, as it's Christmas, may all your doughnuts turn out like Fannys.

where is that then after relegation 6000 has gone missing .they have stayed loyal .pompey fans are the same as most fans .you get 11 000 in league one .saints had 24.000 fans most games some 32.000 .and more support in league one away only 2nd behind massive sheff weds .so there is the souths best most loyal support .argument over taxi for kent121 .as is should be .as shown on wiki .121 million debt created
Fine if you think today was brilliant support then you are massive club but from what i witnessed it failed badly so taxi for you sunshine.
121 million debt kunt sorry kent , all ya recent success was a farce done on bumped dollars ! push bike ride for you son .

Excellent post Strassie. Fanny had a series called "The big time" in 76, but she then suffered from the "Troake" incident after which she disappeared from the public forever despite putting on more and more expensive and extensive layers of "makeup".

She troaked, you guys choaked after 76. A great analogy on this peaceful day.

How can we trust your comments to be honest because when you first came on here you argued you were a Saints fan and now you admit to being a skunt?

All clubs have the plastics who expand the numbers when the team is in the higher leagues. We averaged 21k in Div1 and 26k in the Championship so yes the 'extras' aren't as passionate but it all adds up financially.

Why do you always claim to be at St Mary's when you are a skunt? That's not normal.
I dont care what you think but i was there today and you spend your life on the pompey site.... now that is a fact is it not ?

We need to keep playing a nice passing game, but we need to play in a more decisive fashion. Change the tempo of the game and not just stroke the ball around without purpose.

We should not resort to long balls as all else fails. The odd long ball, if the CBs are known to have difficulty dealing with them, isn't a bad thing. But with the short passes mix in some direct balls. This is where players have to make telling runs.

The trouble is, whilst we have some talented players, we have a fair few who are championship level. So it's easy to sit here and say the way we should play, but not all the players are capable! This is where NA's judgement has to be called into question.

When we bought Billy Sharp, we knew there was a good chance of us getting promotion. So why buy him if he's not going to be in our Premiership plans, 2 mill! Jrod, 7 mill? I think not! We should have bought a decent keeper, Gazza has potential, but after 15 league games it's a lot to ask.

On the bright side I think Jose stepped up to the captaincy well, and the next 2 games are away to sides who are not doing too well and we should be able to get 2 points from those games. And Boxing Day sales shopping in thee West End!!
I was excited to see Mayuka start a game, but it was an English December mudbath, and I always think that players like Mayuka, Guly, and Gaston do not realise what they are letting themselves in for when they come to England - their skills are obliterated by pitch conditions for half the season.
Where were you ?

Back in time,at the old DELL in the 60's perhaps?

OUR PITCH IS A LIKE A BOWLING GREEN!

So no excuses for them, there.
If you think that it was a mudbath, I suggest you need to go to SPECKSAVERS.
Or perhaps Santa will bring you some contacts.
Merry xmas.
It certainly wasn't a mud bath. I remember games where you couldn't see any green and the ball would stick. However, the surface water wasn't draining and when the ball was passed along the ground, particularly later on, the spray off it was massive. That had to make quick, sharp passing very difficult.

On a different note the male lino gave some amazing off sides right in front of me, had to be a couple of yards onside at least. Still, went in our favour.

Don't quite see the need for all the doom and gloom. One week we play brilliant passing football and another we don't seem to be able to string more than a couple of decent passes together. It wasn't just one player but almost all of them gave the ball away much too easily yesterday. The passing was atrocious.

Yesterday, we missed Lallana. I thought we had the cover to cope, but Mayuka didn't seem to blend in. To give him credit, though, he tried and he would have got a penalty if he'd been playing for Arsenal. De Ridder, I'm afraid, is not really a prem player. We looked livelier when Do Prado came on.

De Ridder, I'm afraid, is not really a prem player. We looked livelier when Do Prado came on. Rising_Son

Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.

As fans we've got to stop lurching from one extreme to another. After our recent good run we were saying we didn't need strengthening other than a CB and that Nigel was king, after one loss we've written off the team and manager again. We do the same thing every time we win or lose. We're going to do both of those all season.

Yesterday, we missed Lallana. I thought we had the cover to cope, but Mayuka didn't seem to blend in. To give him credit, though, he tried and he would have got a penalty if he'd been playing for Arsenal. De Ridder, I'm afraid, is not really a prem player. We looked livelier when Do Prado came on.
I hope we dont play like that against Arsenal.I expect to win that game.
O.N.A.
I hope we don't play like that against Arsenal (or anyone else for that matter). I was at the Emirates, and I demand (in a redarmy sort of way) that we get our revenge!
Mack, are you going to the Chelsea game on 5 January?

RisingSon, I assume you're staying in Japan, no?
I might be able to make it over for a couple of matches in February or March.

It's getting late, so I'm off to bed. Good night, and a merry Xmas to you all.

I hope you're enjoying yourself in Portugal.

Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less
Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.
I will give you this when you were promoted unde Alan Ball ..gone but not forgotten you had 26k at Fratton..
before that 36.5K agains wait for it us!!

Saints figures were alweays interesting I have been at games were you could not move and 'official' attendance 23k..been at other games were official figures were 26k and spaces..pay on the gate days and semi-ticketed..

During the early 80's most gates were 30k undeclared...as was..

Like for like and equal success with bigger stadiums you would be circa 26+k a week we would be 35+k..regrettably you make more noise...and there it is.

Do not forget neither of us have enough room on big games and neither fill our small ones.

Are you having a laugh? Steve De Ridder was awful.
only one sentence wow.

Steve was quick he wanted to get involved O'Neil had to take off his right back after he got a yellow, then straight away the new right back got a yellow they could not handle him. showed desire and wanted to prove all doubters wrong now give the guy a chance, we are Southampton and we stay together as one.

people complain when they say we have no speed down the wings then when he (Adkins) puts speed on the pitch people call them clowns. now what do we do to help these inane people that speak ill all the time???

NOW LETS GET BEHIND THE SAINTS

Warren fella. I don't get your 36.5K comment, Can you explain it?

We used to get 26k quite a lot for the bigger games as that was what the capacity was pegged to when the Fratton End was dismantled.

I agree on the dodgy 80s n 90's gates

Dont agree on 35+ as you have never had those. It is all about sustained growth and winning fans over though. You couldn't do it at the Dell due to Justice Taylor, we have never had the chance at FP because of greedy bosses.

I would love to go back to terraces though. They were great. Better noise as well, and you could always move at half time if you fancied it.

Kenny, we had 20k thru the PL years until the last year, and similar the year before, and would have had loads more, but they couldn't get in.

Leicester's stadium was already built. The council have been quite good actually and even recently offered to loan 1 mill to the project, but were asked not to so else they would be seen as biased.

Mandaric just wanted his money back, and wasnt serious about making the stadium bigger, He used a con trick to keep it as it was. Quite clever actually.

You're right, After a 1-0 win we all see the succulent sugar coated surface of the freshly fried doughnut ring. After a 1-0 defeat all we can see is the hole.

In victory, unbeatable; in defeat, unbearable.

Fulham 0 - Saints 1
Bring on the doughnut!
Ha! Trouble is, too many Saints fans have, in recent years, had too many doughnuts - some have even been chocolate coated (the doughnuts, not the fans!). Thus, they've started turning their noses up if they don't get served the very best, fresh, homemade doughnuts.

Those of us old enough to remember the 60s will testify that the best doughnuts were made by the world's bestest best ever TV chef, Fanny Craddock. So, to all those miserable bleeders who are now disappointed if their 'doughnuts' are not of the finest quality, I'd just like to say, as it's Christmas, may all your doughnuts turn out like Fannys.
Wasn't she the one who always said: "You are what you eat?"

Problem is Crisp that every club could argue the middle class point re today's prawn sandwich football...atmospher e at the Dell was awesome when everyone ie seats included joined in...

We are a middle class club, and yet on our day we are much bigger than many clubs and suprise other supporters..but during average times too many of our fans do not deliver... Truth to tell we are like the Villa and Pmuff = Burrmingam..we are much bigger but they are more vocal..it means more to them because there is nothing else...think on it.
Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less
Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.
I will give you this when you were promoted unde Alan Ball ..gone but not forgotten you had 26k at Fratton.. before that 36.5K agains wait for it us!! Saints figures were alweays interesting I have been at games were you could not move and 'official' attendance 23k..been at other games were official figures were 26k and spaces..pay on the gate days and semi-ticketed.. During the early 80's most gates were 30k undeclared...as was.. Like for like and equal success with bigger stadiums you would be circa 26+k a week we would be 35+k..regrettably you make more noise...and there it is. Do not forget neither of us have enough room on big games and neither fill our small ones.
Warren fella. I don't get your 36.5K comment, Can you explain it?

We used to get 26k quite a lot for the bigger games as that was what the capacity was pegged to when the Fratton End was dismantled.

I agree on the dodgy 80s n 90's gates

Dont agree on 35+ as you have never had those. It is all about sustained growth and winning fans over though. You couldn't do it at the Dell due to Justice Taylor, we have never had the chance at FP because of greedy bosses.

I would love to go back to terraces though. They were great. Better noise as well, and you could always move at half time if you fancied it.
Simple..although we never had 35k gates..it was because we could not get past our 32.5k capacity less the cordoned off waste of space section..

For the big 7 games we could and I speak from ticketing situation knowledge and as an ex shareholder with trading brief KNOW that 38k-50k was the figure for these games..an increased capacity for other games would mean nothing..totally accepted..

Look at Everton, Villa, Sunderland, etc their smaller games are only 2-4000 max better than ours however they have the capacity for the bigger games hence the average difference..

Fair does?

Yes Portsmouth City council remind me of ours back in the day, when they would not support a new stadium because council was conservative even though big Mac had bought monster success and permanent sell outs to the Dell...however they considered football beneath them instead of the heart of the community..

Southampton City council cost us a generation of support..Portsmouth city council could have cost Muff a club..not funny.

You cant have it both ways ie we are dodgy fans, and just want success. Loads of fans have been boycotting for a while which may surprise you. If the trust take over it will all change. I also think you didnt fill your ground when it was 22k capacity. I do have Saints mates who tell me how it is.[/p][/quote]was it ever under 9000 capacity no for a period of games ,at end of the day its about now .we have 30.000 and you have 11.since 2000 we have had average 10.000 more fans than you more fans at away games .but importantly we get 13.000 more fans each home game .which gives us more of a structure .because southampton city council backed the club to build the new stadium .after the eastleigh council issue ,stoneham would of been a better site .but southampton council always wantd to help till the site came avaliable .but its true that portsmouth council never game pompey any support for a stadium or training ground .it was one of the reasons manadaric went to liecester .because the council backed them and there stadium.rather like st marys .but that was at the time the biginning of the end .after him who bought you out of admin at the time .but you never learned from it ,went on to another 2 administrations .clearly he knew some thing[/p][/quote]Yes Portsmouth City council remind me of ours back in the day, when they would not support a new stadium because council was conservative even though big Mac had bought monster success and permanent sell outs to the Dell...however they considered football beneath them instead of the heart of the community..

Kenny, we had 20k thru the PL years until the last year, and similar the year before, and would have had loads more, but they couldn't get in.

Leicester's stadium was already built. The council have been quite good actually and even recently offered to loan 1 mill to the project, but were asked not to so else they would be seen as biased.

Mandaric just wanted his money back, and wasnt serious about making the stadium bigger, He used a con trick to keep it as it was. Quite clever actually.
We always thought the Duck lived Pfc..what's the story?

Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less
Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.
I will give you this when you were promoted unde Alan Ball ..gone but not forgotten you had 26k at Fratton.. before that 36.5K agains wait for it us!! Saints figures were alweays interesting I have been at games were you could not move and 'official' attendance 23k..been at other games were official figures were 26k and spaces..pay on the gate days and semi-ticketed.. During the early 80's most gates were 30k undeclared...as was.. Like for like and equal success with bigger stadiums you would be circa 26+k a week we would be 35+k..regrettably you make more noise...and there it is. Do not forget neither of us have enough room on big games and neither fill our small ones.
Warren fella. I don't get your 36.5K comment, Can you explain it? We used to get 26k quite a lot for the bigger games as that was what the capacity was pegged to when the Fratton End was dismantled. I agree on the dodgy 80s n 90's gates Dont agree on 35+ as you have never had those. It is all about sustained growth and winning fans over though. You couldn't do it at the Dell due to Justice Taylor, we have never had the chance at FP because of greedy bosses. I would love to go back to terraces though. They were great. Better noise as well, and you could always move at half time if you fancied it.
Simple..although we never had 35k gates..it was because we could not get past our 32.5k capacity less the cordoned off waste of space section.. For the big 7 games we could and I speak from ticketing situation knowledge and as an ex shareholder with trading brief KNOW that 38k-50k was the figure for these games..an increased capacity for other games would mean nothing..totally accepted.. Look at Everton, Villa, Sunderland, etc their smaller games are only 2-4000 max better than ours however they have the capacity for the bigger games hence the average difference.. Fair does?
OK. I see your point, I spose at 30k you could creep up to 33/ 34k. 35k? The proof would be in the pudding. Like I say there is a novelty thing at your club at the mo, and when the side levels out you will see your true level.

Apparently we could have doubled our attendances for the bigger PL games at FP according to the ticket office. It can never be proven though one way or the other.

Fair do's

On attendances I hate Man Utd though, When you see all those coaches rock up from all over the country, what a joke. I would like to see that club dismantled personally.

Kenny. He has put in 500k max. And he has taken out 10-12 million already. It is criminal.

Coca cola, MacDonalds; Mufco, what difference we were all sold out a long time ago..

Even in the US of A they do not allow titles (boxing aside) to be bought...

Basically the big 4 here and the big 16 in Europe marginalised every real fan on our Continent..Eufa and Fifa hang your heads in effin shame..

Did you know that until mid 50's early 60's best 2 supported clubs were..Wolves and Charlton!!¨

Will it ever go back to what it should be the community..No it's corporate biz now and that is coming from a capitalist..big difference.

bit like chairai then nothing changes .19 million is a good bit of money though .its up to the high court now .but his 19 million saved you going to admin at the time ,but it only prolonged the agony .that is ongoing
Kenny. He has put in 500k max. And he has taken out 10-12 million already. It is criminal.
and hes short of 7 million without profit much like .gadmayak .who can blame him .your club just dont pay no one ,chelsea 6 0

Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less
Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.
I will give you this when you were promoted unde Alan Ball ..gone but not forgotten you had 26k at Fratton.. before that 36.5K agains wait for it us!! Saints figures were alweays interesting I have been at games were you could not move and 'official' attendance 23k..been at other games were official figures were 26k and spaces..pay on the gate days and semi-ticketed.. During the early 80's most gates were 30k undeclared...as was.. Like for like and equal success with bigger stadiums you would be circa 26+k a week we would be 35+k..regrettably you make more noise...and there it is. Do not forget neither of us have enough room on big games and neither fill our small ones.
Warren fella. I don't get your 36.5K comment, Can you explain it? We used to get 26k quite a lot for the bigger games as that was what the capacity was pegged to when the Fratton End was dismantled. I agree on the dodgy 80s n 90's gates Dont agree on 35+ as you have never had those. It is all about sustained growth and winning fans over though. You couldn't do it at the Dell due to Justice Taylor, we have never had the chance at FP because of greedy bosses. I would love to go back to terraces though. They were great. Better noise as well, and you could always move at half time if you fancied it.
Simple..although we never had 35k gates..it was because we could not get past our 32.5k capacity less the cordoned off waste of space section..

Agree. The joining of the Europa and "Champions" league may reduce things slightly thereby omitting the sham thursday games and weakened weekend teams.

I knew Charlton had a 70k record. Didnt know about Wolves, Mind you they were good in the fifties. I believe Man City have the English att record.

The thing is. this big 16 will become a world league in the near future. More BS I fear.

I would like to see the wages capped at 100k a year, and having coaches produce 3/4 of each team. That is one area where your club have been rather good.

Jimmy Hill, what a gimp with those wages all those years ago.

He said he would turn the stadium round, but the way he planned to do it was to have one season with the fans 45 yards or so from the action if he did it sooner, or a lot nearer if we could wait another season. I didn't fall for it and was very vocal about it, but he got his way, and the fans said they would wait, then he went. Like I say clever.

No. He is already up 10 million or so. He isn't owed anything. I know this must be difficult to understand, I do. But this is factual.

We always thought the Duck lived Pfc..what's the story?
duck?
Mandarin (Dic) come on you get it..
lol, He said he would turn the stadium round, but the way he planned to do it was to have one season with the fans 45 yards or so from the action if he did it sooner, or a lot nearer if we could wait another season. I didn't fall for it and was very vocal about it, but he got his way, and the fans said they would wait, then he went. Like I say clever.
Was he really 'that' cute? or buying time...he certainly did not like us, always seemed Pompey...still who can tell. Like the chat MG.. you seem like a sound fella.
Cheers Warren. You seem quite chilled. I did see your on-line fisty cuffs earlier though, that was a bit mad.

Yes, he really was that cute, he bought time, and then went without turning the pitch round. He did buy some surrounding land though - but of course he used that as a selling pitch to Gaydamak, Loads of Pompey fans still don't realise they were played - I swear. Crazy actually.

And he is the best chairman I have ever known - which is why I am so pro-trust.

Such is life. OK I'm off for a few Ales. Night chaps.

Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less
Kenny. I would say you are deluded a bit there. You got a new stadium then had success. At the Dell, you only ever filled it when the big teams arrived. We have never had a new stadium so, until we get one sorted, we won't see the effect either. On delusionment, a lot of our fans are suffering from that at the mo, and didnt want to support BC (At the Bournemouth game there was a good feeling, as we thought he had gone, then after realising it was a false dawn we dropped 6K immediately), plus having to fork out extra dough for the trust during difficult economic times. We did get 23/24k even in the fourth div last time - I remember it clearly.
I will give you this when you were promoted unde Alan Ball ..gone but not forgotten you had 26k at Fratton.. before that 36.5K agains wait for it us!! Saints figures were alweays interesting I have been at games were you could not move and 'official' attendance 23k..been at other games were official figures were 26k and spaces..pay on the gate days and semi-ticketed.. During the early 80's most gates were 30k undeclared...as was.. Like for like and equal success with bigger stadiums you would be circa 26+k a week we would be 35+k..regrettably you make more noise...and there it is. Do not forget neither of us have enough room on big games and neither fill our small ones.
Warren fella. I don't get your 36.5K comment, Can you explain it? We used to get 26k quite a lot for the bigger games as that was what the capacity was pegged to when the Fratton End was dismantled. I agree on the dodgy 80s n 90's gates Dont agree on 35+ as you have never had those. It is all about sustained growth and winning fans over though. You couldn't do it at the Dell due to Justice Taylor, we have never had the chance at FP because of greedy bosses. I would love to go back to terraces though. They were great. Better noise as well, and you could always move at half time if you fancied it.
Simple..although we never had 35k gates..it was because we could not get past our 32.5k capacity less the cordoned off waste of space section.. For the big 7 games we could and I speak from ticketing situation knowledge and as an ex shareholder with trading brief KNOW that 38k-50k was the figure for these games..an increased capacity for other games would mean nothing..totally accepted.. Look at Everton, Villa, Sunderland, etc their smaller games are only 2-4000 max better than ours however they have the capacity for the bigger games hence the average difference.. Fair does?
OK. I see your point, I spose at 30k you could creep up to 33/ 34k. 35k? The proof would be in the pudding. Like I say there is a novelty thing at your club at the mo, and when the side levels out you will see your true level.

Apparently we could have doubled our attendances for the bigger PL games at FP according to the ticket office. It can never be proven though one way or the other.

Fair do's

On attendances I hate Man Utd though, When you see all those coaches rock up from all over the country, what a joke. I would like to see that club dismantled personally.
Coca cola, MacDonalds; Mufco, what difference we were all sold out a long time ago..

Even in the US of A they do not allow titles (boxing aside) to be bought...

Basically the big 4 here and the big 16 in Europe marginalised every real fan on our Continent..Eufa and Fifa hang your heads in effin shame..

Did you know that until mid 50's early 60's best 2 supported clubs were..Wolves and Charlton!!¨

Will it ever go back to what it should be the community..No it's corporate biz now and that is coming from a capitalist..big difference.
Ditto

Agree. The joining of the Europa and "Champions" league may reduce things slightly thereby omitting the sham thursday games and weakened weekend teams.

I knew Charlton had a 70k record. Didnt know about Wolves, Mind you they were good in the fifties. I believe Man City have the English att record.

The thing is. this big 16 will become a world league in the near future. More BS I fear.

I would like to see the wages capped at 100k a year, and having coaches produce 3/4 of each team. That is one area where your club have been rather good.

Jimmy Hill, what a gimp with those wages all those years ago.
Wolves more or less had the biggest average attendances in 50's..Mufco became mega after Munich, the in fairness earned sympathy rolled onto being first english European cup winners, however several clubs still outdid their support, even in the late 70's early 80's LFC had higher average attendances for several years.

The decline for the SFC's QPR's Ipswich's et al began just before prem when Mufco lobbied for all home gate money...the morals are debatable although commercially correct, however SKY turned football into a brand and totally ruined it for the fan but built it for the 'consumer'..be clear Spain has been giving all it's revenue to Barca and Real forever HORRID:

My view, sell every kit you can, every box you can, double your stadium, BUT there must be a limit to how much anyone can spend buying a title...

7 0 what a blitz
So 8-0 and Villa's goal difference is the worst in the League. :O)

Look at the Table - Wet Spam are not that far ahead and the Players need to be very motivated to get results. They can do it - but they need the Team Spirit and work very hard Together to achieve the WINS.

COME ON NIGEL - MAKE IT HAPPEN

Last 4 minutes of the game yesterday was more like it and we should have had a penalty.

Defensively the Team have improved though and we do not want to be on the end of a drubbing like we have seen from Chelsea. We cannot let Teams like that have time and space on the ball.

I CHALLENGE RICKIE TO SCORE FROM A FREE KICK like we have seen today from David Luiz. He has a great shot so why not ?

You can understand the posts talking about Billy Sharp - what we need is when Rickie heads it down for a goal poacher to shot and score. IMO Jason is good in a free ranging role - but is not an out and out week in week out goal scorer.

Other Teams like Arsenal will go for Ba and Liverpool will get Daniel Sturridge
and they will get better - What will we do to improve and who will we get if anyone ??

A Top Quality Centre Half can strengthen the Team. In the Premiership you cannot go bargain basement and getting Players from the lower leagues rarely works.

The Goal Keeping situation is a fiasco IMO. Getting Top Quality gets you 10 points a Season. Our cost saving solution has cost points with all the errors and however much I like Kelvin - he is not that calibre of Keeper - although I like what he does within the Team and his communication skills are good as well as being a good shot stopper.

WE GO - TOGETHER AS ONE TO FULHAM TO WIN.

SAINTS FANS ARE MAGNIFICENT - but poor flat football like yesterday kills the atmosphere and the passion of the fans.

I disagree with the poster that talks about the fans are quiet and we have lost our working Class base etc

Bollux - Travel away like Birmingham last year and you will witness loud passionate vocal support. We have just have had 3 years of it all our own way.

The fact is some Supporters give it MAX but no-one wants to be banned and miss all the football and the action.
Some Stewards are just looking to throw out fans - like Plymouth Away 2 Seasons ago.

A poster complained that the Echo Site has turned into a Pompey Site. In some ways he/she is right. When we were in League One we were plagued by Bore-mouth and Brighton - now Osprey and Seed + Slugger etc just draw them in with bait and keep them on site for their own amusement.

MESSAGE FOR THE PLAYERS.

Every Saints Fan was ****** off travelling to Wet Spam and the Result.

We demand the performance and the RESULT ON BOXING DAY.

WE DEMAND THE WIN - NOTHING ELSE WILL DO !!!

If we cannot get our f*cking act together then there is no point posting anymore in 2013. The fans do everything and there are players there who are on a tonne of money who need to keep their eye on the ball and give everything to WIN.

THEY ALL CAN IMPROVE - look at Jose and Luke who are leading the way.

Jose is now at a level to keep the Captaincy IMO - and let Adam concentrate at what he does best !

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON.

RED ARMY 2012. COYR.

p.s HAPPY XMAS

Agree on all. The two spanish clubs get 50pc of the tv money. The other clubs have started to get together and are chalenging this. Madrid had their training ground "bought" for them recently by the government for some ridiculous amount - was it 250 million!

Then you have the corruption of the referee's ie Italy is a minefiled. Old Trafford as well ie 3 pens given in ten years, plus all the big club ref "favours"

The home gate receipts was massive - that is why I hate seeing Bournemouth coaches at Old Trafford.

Murdoch is evil, then you get patsies like Jeremy Hunt trying to give him even more control of the media.

The one thing about Man City and Chelsea and Blackburn is that they levelled the playing field with MU. not right though I agree.

Kenny. there is no evidence anywhere that BC has put in any money apart from a singular months wages.

If someone is associating with the mafia, gun runners, convicted lawyers, and lies about everything, why would you believe him? The "transfer" was done invisibly in the BVI, and was transferred via a company part-named after a convicted gun runner who was associating with Gaydamak. Many of us think this comapny was given to BC by Gaydamak as a means of "transferring" the purchase after which the asset stripping then commenced.

If you want to mention the wages and the stadium, fine, but loads of fans questioned the stadium non development and the growing owneship concerns at the time.

As you say perspective on everything - not life and death as you say - as some of us will have felt recently.

Problem is Crisp that every club could argue the middle class point re today's prawn sandwich football...atmospher e at the Dell was awesome when everyone ie seats included joined in...

We are a middle class club, and yet on our day we are much bigger than many clubs and suprise other supporters..but during average times too many of our fans do not deliver... Truth to tell we are like the Villa and Pmuff = Burrmingam..we are much bigger but they are more vocal..it means more to them because there is nothing else...think on it.
Some truth in what you are saying. We have exceeded 50k at Fratton though. The fact is you have never had a capacity as big, and you have got too many plastic fans at the mo. After the fans have got used to being a bit more average than the last couple of seasons, the attendances will drop off, and you will find a harder core following.
thev point is we had 21.dell with the benches filled the stadium even in division 2 at the time .anmd we would fill up the 20.000 stadium these days .so with have a core but more than pompey does .even the first season in league one after 10 points off .the fans still stuck by the club 23.000 average .i would say saints have a core of about 24.000 your lot about 11.000 because 6.000 have walked away .arsenal chelsea mancity utd newcastle villa liverpool spurs sunderland .out of prem id say leeds utd in sheffweds .rest of the clubs about the same or less

Yes, we have to agree to a sugar daddy to actually challenge the mufco's...sad but true..

Ref decisions, never bet on anything that speaks..I honestly believe that the inbuilt ability for corruption in Eufa and Fifa is directly due to the opportunity to 'nudge' decisions...never ever would England win a world cup for example..today because of woeful lack of ability, but how about against Argentina, or um Argentina. Portugal and er Portugal...co-incide
nce no..at that level of football one 'selective' decision changes everything, same with the big clubs...forget my team I see smaller clubs week in week out robbed..why?

In every other area of sport replay's are allowed, bring them into football and the established order is threatened...EUFA do not care which of the top 16 win EC as long as it is ONE of the 16, preferrably Real or Barc or Mu but NOT a minnow it's money you see....ditto world cup with Fifa..

Bribery and corruption is not new ask Cloughie, well his son..we are seeing a subtle but in reality no different version today.

O Christmas, merry Christmas!
Is it really come again,
With its memories and greetings,
With its joy and with its pain?
There's a minor in the carol,
And a shadow in the light,
And a spray of cypress twining
With the holly wreath to-night.
And the hush is never broken
By laughter light and low,
As we listen in the starlight
To the "bells across the snow."


Just a few heart felt words for my flock at Christmas time, peace and goodwill to all my friends on the Echo website.

Some of the regulars like BIll Seed etc by posting on the news site and putting out the bait have caught some prime skates (skunts) and turned this into the News Site.

Took me a while to scroll back through the 230 odd posts and I see we still have a few bad guys with us, pity, as there has been some good stuff in between, I expected to see a lot more moaning minnies after the Sunderland defeat. RedArmy1 keep up the good work, but I don't appreciate being tarred with the same brush as those other two reprobates, Quote: "now Osprey and Seed + Slugger etc just draw them in with bait and keep them on site for their own amusement". I don't post on the News if that is what you meant, and I only respond on here, to either humour them, or to chastise them if they are being unfair. If you continue to post your SHOUTING posts, that is like a red (and thin white stripes) rag to a ball to them and is bound to have the same affect, so don't preach to me about attracting their attention.

On the subject of the blue few - there is no Surrender - start the Liquidizer and do football a favour and finish them off.

I cannot wait with a view from the Northam see Southampton get a famous victory over Arsenal.
