    Osprey, dear boy, I don't need the Samaritans. I wasn't at Fratton Park either. I was in the real world at Stoke watching Southampton throw away yet another game. That's all. Not even the prospect of Saints being thrashed by the Gunners on New Year's Day leads me to want to access help via the Samaritans. I accept the plight Southampton are in unlike you. I am resolved to watching Championship football next season - you?
    Took you long enough. I have no problem watching Championship football, if that is what fate decides, I also won't be jumping off the Itchen Bridge if it happens. My support for Nigel Adkins remains, whatever, if he has the misfortune to be the victim of another mindless Managerial sacking, I will support whoever is appointed. That's football and I am loving it and suffering at the same time. I don't think we will be relegated, but I haven't got a crystal ball, and fate can be unfair at times. Come back and discuss what happened at Easter time."

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.”
