    Same old Adkins, always in denial I suppose he has to put a positive spin on another three points thown away to not let his boys see any negative vibes but in Nicola Cortese I trust and it will not be too much longer before we get someone at the helm who know's what they are doing. I'm afraid most of NA's subs selections this season have changed the games, but not the impact off the bench that he always harps on about but costing us the points in most of them. I wasn't at the game today but listened to it on Solent and in the second half it sounded like we just gave the ground again, sound familiar (Man U/ Man C etc..) and completely lost the initiative and then he takes off one of out most influential players who was doing very well in Jason Puncheon and leaves Ricky Lambert on who's name was barely mentioned in the second half and even Dave Merrington was saying that he did not work hard enough to close down. I know I will get plenty of stick from the loyalists but I'm sorry guys I just dont think that NA is the man to take the club forwards and if we dont get anything against Arsenal and are still in the drop zone I hope NC takes decisive action before its too late.
    Never seen you post before .... who were you ?
    Slugger, he's posted before: here are a few samples:

    "Well Nige, if you genuinely want whats best for Southampton football club then its time to pack your bags and get back on the bus."

    "All the best for the future now please NC get Hoddle in before its too late."

    "and Adkins if he does'nt up his game will be looking for a new job before xmas"

    "it was embarrassing not brilliant to watch and if we ever play that poorly again we will get well and truly spanked"

    "Personally I think we will be lucky to make the play offs at this rate because we are so poor and everyone around us are finding form."

    "What a pathetic, embarrassing performance, our players look out on their feet and clueless, what the f..k is going on Adkins."

    Not a single positive comment in any thread in the first two pages of results. Those go back well into last season. Never a SINGLE positive post...
    Must be a Pompey fan i suppose if he doesent Hail the almighty Adkins, you are a very sad person velliety.

    Leave Kent alone - he's one of the biggest WUMs known to mankind. He feeds off response and is best left unfed.

    Justa warning to anyone planning to reply to him."

Adkins hails "fantastic point"

Nigel Adkins at Stoke today.

Nigel Adkins at Stoke today.

First published in Sport

Nigel Adkins hailed Saints’ draw at Stoke as “a fantastic point.”

The boss was delighted with a 3-3 draw at the Britannia Stadium despite seeing his side lose a 3-1 lead against ten men.

He said: “It’s a fantastic point away from home.

“You look at Stoke and the Britannia Stadium and they had only conceded three goals at home this season and we’ve scored three and could have scored more.

“It’s always a difficult place to come to, our supporters were great and first half it was only us you could hear because our game management was spot on.

“We came away from home and changed a few of the players around because we knew we’d have to deal with an aerial bombardment that would probably come and the players have been top drawer. We scored some really good goals.”
