  • "Next up is the Arsenal Game.

    Saints can't let them have time and space on the ball. They will have to work extremely hard to achieve this.

    They also cannot afford like their first 10 games to play the suicide game when both teams take it in turns to take pot shots at the goal.

    Another reason for this is that Kelvin is liable to ship goals. Number 2 goal yesterday was preventable.


    10 million is OK to spend - 10 points saved per Season. At the moment due to some dodgy keeping we return to the bottom three and it's all avoidable. The margins are that close in this League and we need a premium goal stopper.

    Aim must be to WIN against Arsenal 1-0 and give them a torrid time on the pitch.

    Crowd will play their part and need them to be noisy and intimidating at ST MARY'S to turn the place into a fortress.

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.”
