  • "I have looked through the posts from yesterdays match.
    I haven't yet been able to see the recorded game although I listened to it on Solent.
    I can say I didn't expect Saints to get anything prior to the game.
    I tuned in with trepidation after 15 mins,expecting that the first words from Dave Merrington would be "What we don't want to do now is---," only to find Saints were 1-1.
    They were apparently playing well and the commentary seemed very excited for once.
    Saints 3-1 at half time was great.
    Can they keep it up second half?
    The answer was NO as usual. Unfortuately,sounded like Guly missed a sitter again when we so needed it, then we immediatley conceeded.
    Totally deflated at this point,don't it always happen.
    Bring on the Stoke barrage then the wonder goal just for fun.

    IT'S HARD BEING A SAINTS SUPPORTER, always has been.
    Anyway 1 point was better than I expected.
    Bring on Arsenal.
    Will be there expecting the worse hoping for the best.
    Got plenty of throat lozenges ready for after the match.

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.”
