    Just got back from the game - what a disappointment! I thought we would be hammered but I'm pleased I was proved wrong there were some improvements today albeit only minor. What was disappointing was the way in which Saints soon began to replicate Stokes game I.e. hoofing long ball up front. Fonte, Hoovield and Yashida played 'hot potato' for most of the match.

    I'm afraid Kelvin is the original 'dodgy keeper'.

    Yashida out of position can't play right back

    Shaw - good but looks tired understandably. I think Fox will not come back into the team and sadly we will see less of Shaw.

    Spider - another anonymous performance - poor.

    Cork - the best of the midfield but played a number of wayward passes. Pleased he had another shot!!

    Guly - at least he tried. Missed a sitter. No more than a good Championship player.

    Rodriguez - didn't notice him!!!

    Lambert - no doubt was out to impress Pulis as I've heard he's interested in buying Lambert in January however became his usual lazy self second half.

    One thing that was apparent at least Saints can score without Ramirez who was on the bench and never came on!!!! Has NA realised that this 'flop' flatters to deceive?

    The bench was peculiar what the hell was Disk Ridder there again was it because he threw his toys out the pram because he was left out on Boxing Day? Why does NA persist with Davis to the exclusion of JWP?

    It seems that NA rewards mediocrity by continuously playing players who are not and never will be premier league quality!

    The time had come for NA to pack up his tent and leave. He's had his chance in the top flight and has failed. Saints will be relegated and we need somewhat at the helm who is tactically aware and knowledgable and who's not frightened to make decisions for fear of upsetting people!

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.”
