Forren: I didn't speak to Adkins over Saints move

Daily Echo: VEGARD FORREN VEGARD FORREN

VEGARD Forren admits he never spoke to Nigel Adkins about joining Saints.

The Norwegian international centre half was officially unveiled as a Saints player just hours after Adkins was sacked on Friday, January 18.

But negotiations to sign the player had been ongoing for days, with Forren in the crowd at Stamford Bridge when Saints drew with Chelsea two days earlier.

"I never spoke to Nigel," said Forren.

"I knew that there was a change and that the new manager wanted me here.

“For me it was never a problem, I was happy to be here and have an opportunity to play for Southampton."

The Premier League is very popular in Norway but Forren is not worried about upsetting people back home if Saints pull off an upset at Old Trafford tomorrow.

"All of my friends and family in Norway are happy for me to be in the Premier League, everyone loves the Premier League in Norway," he said.

"Of course I have some friends who are United fans but if I do well and we get the three points they will be okay."

With Jose Fonte still missing through injury and Forren settled into the Saints squad following a training trip to Barcelona the 24-year-old looks set to make his debut against United.

Different ways of analysing this, if NA was never involved with any of his signings, he was even better a magician than what we thought, playing with the cards he was dealt, rather than the deck he wanted. However if this was just a one off because of the impending managerial change it puts a different complex on it. Now if MP is in charge of who he wants to bring in we may see a different outcome. As always everything is done within the camp so we can only guess the truth and anyone claiming anything to be fact are simply clutching at the same straws as the rest of us. As always we have no actual input anyhow, so we have to accept the situation and keep up our support whatever. This shouldn't be a bar on any form of discussion on any part of it.

So it's pretty obvious that if we'd beaten Chelski and the toffees 5-0 Nige's days were numbered. Shame 'cos he was doin a great job. We will only really know if NC is proven correct (yet again) in April. Meanwhile MC has a big act to follow. Exciting times ahead methinks.

This was and is all abit obvious things dont happen over night im sure MP and NC spoke weeks before he became manager and spoke about signings as time is limited! If anything that is a good move plan ahead always helps.

I remember reading in an interview with Les Reed that it's a committee made up of Cortese, Reed, the manager and possibly some others, who decide on players, then I presume Cortese does the negotiating. The benefits of this are that we get the views of more than one person, plus as it's not the manager alone who decides deals, it means there's less upheavel when a manager leaves as they aren't neccessarily 'his' players who are loyal to him, but to the club instead.

I think it depends whose signing they are. I think when they were clearly Nigel's call (Jay, Fox, Forte etc) Nigel almost certainly got involved as he knew the players personally.

When they're players identified by our scouting network (as Vegs clearly was) then it'll be someone else. And no, I doubt it was Nicola, either. We have a team of people paid to do this stuff.

Indeed. And that's the worry.

We outbid Liverpool for Coutinho and presumably at least matched their wage offer. MP has recently worked with him but he turned us down and Inter had to sell him for less money which sort of flies in the face of the reason for appointing MP.

And so more of cortese's underhand dealings is exposed. I watched Nigel's interview after the Chelsea game, and it was obvious he realised what was going on behind his back. Seed house has intimated this on several occasions in his posts this season. Sad, underhanded, and no way to run a business. And by the way, I am speaking as someone who runs a business employing 13 people. Many of them have been with me for a very long time, and that is because they trust me. I wonder if Cortese is now trusted by those he employs.

Those were with Nigel at the helm!

Of course Liverpool is a huge name. If we're honest we are struggling to get our targets to come here. We were after Michu before anyone else was.

At a higher level even Chelski and Citeh struggled to get their top targets when they first had money.

Seed remember we are still in our first season back in the big time. Survival this year then the rest will follow. I think this is from Waynes World 'If you build it, they will come'.

Completely agree about Michu that was a gutting transfer specially as Swansea spent a lot less money than we were quoted

I think in many ways it shows why Cortese is frustrated with where we are, but it will take many, many years before we get to where he wants to be and that's why he needs to be patient.

Look, players will naturally be drawn to a club like Liverpool because they are internationally renowned for their history.

It doesn't take a genius to realise that anyone who would join us ahead of them would be taking the money.

And, personally, I'd prefer we didn't sign anyone than bring in a mercenary we arguably don't need.

Well I've had a few bosses and have always found the best ones to be those willing to listen and actually understand that people can have opinions. They may not always be right but a working relationship can still be carried on in such circumstances. If I valued my job I don't think I would be having too many disagreements with Mr. Cortese. Just the one would probably be enough!! Anyway let's hope he carries on being right all the time.

In terms of Forren - are we supposed to be shocked or outraged?

Personally, I'd prefer to think that NC's decision, whether wrong or right, was at least made with a bit of thought, planning and preparation.

If he was waving the axe on the basis of a mood swing having not spoken to anyone I'd be even more worried about his actions, but this is further proof that, for better or worse, his talk of a wider plan is not just flannel.

And, out of interest, what business ever sacks a successful manager (ie not on impulse) without having sounded out a successor?

More intelligence from the clan. Not claiming to be anything but a small business owner who knows the value of decency.
I realise that that diss bars me from being a "true" saints fan by many on here, but some intelligence in responses wouldn't go amiss.

But does anyone actually know if Nigel was expected to be the long term manager in the Premier League? Seeing how committed and determined Cortese is to getting Saints to be a top 6 team I'd suggest not....

Well I've had a few bosses and have always found the best ones to be those willing to listen and actually understand that people can have opinions. They may not always be right but a working relationship can still be carried on in such circumstances. If I valued my job I don't think I would be having too many disagreements with Mr. Cortese. Just the one would probably be enough!! Anyway let's hope he carries on being right all the time.
Only time will tell if this decision is right. My main issue is the way it has been executed, and the reasoning behind it. Time will be the judge.

Man, I had no idea Donald Trump was a Saints fan. It's a pleasure to have you on board.
More intelligence from the clan. Not claiming to be anything but a small business owner who knows the value of decency.
I realise that that diss bars me from being a "true" saints fan by many on here, but some intelligence in responses wouldn't go amiss.
Maybe NA was very well informed about what was happening all the time but, then again, maybe he wasn't. I don't know and I'm pretty sure you don't either.

The fact that no-one knows what's going on in the transfer window must be great for the journalists. They can just print every exciting or worrying rumour. I think the key to success is just to make sure that non-news and minor news is given the same emphasis and headline size etc as geniune big news.

I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success. I was hoping to be appointed editor of the Big Issue when I told the proprietor at my interview that I thought we could create 250,000 more Big Issue selling jobs for the unemployed if lots and lots of big tits were put in it. But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever.

The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies.

By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.

Look, the fact Nigel seemed to know what was going on and that this didn't come as a massive surprise to him suggests he wasn't being kept in the dark, doesn't it?

You seem determined to knock Nicola and that's fair enough - I'm sure he can handle it. But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions.

Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...

I think it depends whose signing they are. I think when they were clearly Nigel's call (Jay, Fox, Forte etc) Nigel almost certainly got involved as he knew the players personally.

When they're players identified by our scouting network (as Vegs clearly was) then it'll be someone else. And no, I doubt it was Nicola, either. We have a team of people paid to do this stuff.
Yes and look just how S H I T Adkins signings was, the are C R A P! Good job cortese got involved,
Yep, got us all the way to the premier league, and was getting established in that league.

Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.

Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.

I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success. I was hoping to be appointed editor of the Big Issue when I told the proprietor at my interview that I thought we could create 250,000 more Big Issue selling jobs for the unemployed if lots and lots of big tits were put in it. But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever.

The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies.

By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.
Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.
Would have been a good idea, but all those 'babes' you mention have been snapped up by NC as programme sellers.

Once again, NC - barsteward that he may be to some - is ahead of tha game.

Why do people keep banging on about Nigel being shafted by NC and this story is proof?
If you go for a high power job (and lets face it, managing a premiership team is pretty high powered) you will have several interviews and discussions before you are employed over weeks if not a couple of months.
Do people think NC woke one morning and thought lets get some people in for an interview and employ the best of the bunch?
NA would have been assed for his player management skills, motivational skills, tactical (substitutions included), newplayer pulling skills, strategicall skills and his ability to take us to the next level. And he obvioulsy came up short somewhere. If you are running a business and someone in a key position is compromising your growth or aspirations then they have to be replaced. End of.

Man, I had no idea Donald Trump was a Saints fan. It's a pleasure to have you on board.
More intelligence from the clan. Not claiming to be anything but a small business owner who knows the value of decency.
I realise that that diss bars me from being a "true" saints fan by many on here, but some intelligence in responses wouldn't go amiss.
Look, the fact Nigel seemed to know what was going on and that this didn't come as a massive surprise to him suggests he wasn't being kept in the dark, doesn't it?

You seem determined to knock Nicola and that's fair enough - I'm sure he can handle it. But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions.

Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...
Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.
But then, Bermondsey, you did rather suggest that he (and others) lack intelligence! Don't you think that could be taken as offensive?
May I but in? Bermondsey, I see your point. I believe that every business should try to implement good business practice and that includes treating your staff fairly.

I'm a Nigel fan and always will be. His achievement and the way he conducted himself will never be lost on me.

That's now gone and, as has been said time and time again on here, Nigel will be fine. He's moved on, now we have to.

My concerns are twofold:
1. The way it appears to have been handled - most of that 'appears' bit is because we don't know all the details and the Sky interview failed to ask any searching questions.
2. With NA, given the squad as it was, I think we would have been fine this season. That position has shifted, so we're now sailing in uncertain waters. MP may be the greatest thing since sliced bread; I hope so. However, I will reserve my judgement on that - BUT ...... I will be 100% behind him, just as I will be with NC and just as I was with Nigel.

Come on board, it's a great ride!

If you are a "true" Saints fan, then that's what you are, no one can deny you that right, whether you are a cockney costermonger or a multi millionaire, if you support the Saints, that's all there is to it, it's a kind of infection, that won't go away no matter how hard you scratch.

But did we have the time? NC felt that we couldnt afford to skim across the top of the bottom 3 for the next 16 games with the risk of slipping into down.
He felt that there was less risk employing a manager with experince of this type of situatin, with an eye to the future.
And with all due respect to all the business owners on here, NC is the Chairman of a multi £m turnover company and so far during his tenure he has improved the company from a standiung start to where we are.. whereas to question his decisions when you a company with a handful of people working for you?

This site has far too many posters who can't debate without getting all precious and snotty when someone argues a point they disagree with. Why don't the echo upgrade this site to allow thumbs up and thumbs down like nearly every other media source with a comments section?

But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions.

Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...
Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.
I've been to Bermondsey and in my experience 90% of businesses were print finishing companies operating from beneath the railway lines that speed commuters to the Kent countryside.
The trouble with assumptions is that they can make an **** of u. I grew up in Bermondsey. Moved to Southampton 25 years ago, and my business is based in Alton. A bit of a narrow view of Bermondsey if you don't mind me saying so. But I am getting used to some very narrow views on here.

Do you really honestly think that Ramirez had an offer from liverpool, but rejected the chance to join 2 compatriots and a large contingent of young spanish speaking players to join Saints (a team that by his own admission he didn't know much about)?

Hundreds of players every year are speculatively linked by the tabloids to clubs like Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea etc... mostly without any substance.

I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success.

But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever.

The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies.

By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.
Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.
Would have been a good idea, but all those 'babes' you mention have been snapped up by NC as programme sellers.

Once again, NC - barsteward that he may be to some - is ahead of tha game.
Well you could be right. There are some great looking girls there arn't there? I'm thinking he'd sell a lot more programmes though if they were all topless. Specially in this cold weather!!

I agree the thumbs up/down isn't an exact science but can give a good impression of the general view, it can get distorted with posters with multi sign ons who can try to distort the figures, better still would be a self edit facility so that you can correct those silly errors that wreck the post at vital moments.

Look, the fact Nigel seemed to know what was going on and that this didn't come as a massive surprise to him suggests he wasn't being kept in the dark, doesn't it?

You seem determined to knock Nicola and that's fair enough - I'm sure he can handle it. But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions.

Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...
Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.
But then, Bermondsey, you did rather suggest that he (and others) lack intelligence! Don't you think that could be taken as offensive?
May I but in? Bermondsey, I see your point. I believe that every business should try to implement good business practice and that includes treating your staff fairly.

I'm a Nigel fan and always will be. His achievement and the way he conducted himself will never be lost on me.

That's now gone and, as has been said time and time again on here, Nigel will be fine. He's moved on, now we have to.

My concerns are twofold:
1. The way it appears to have been handled - most of that 'appears' bit is because we don't know all the details and the Sky interview failed to ask any searching questions.
2. With NA, given the squad as it was, I think we would have been fine this season. That position has shifted, so we're now sailing in uncertain waters. MP may be the greatest thing since sliced bread; I hope so. However, I will reserve my judgement on that - BUT ...... I will be 100% behind him, just as I will be with NC and just as I was with Nigel.

Come on board, it's a great ride!
I agree with Strass, Bermondsey and Three Halves.

Many are saying that Nigel was right to get us to the premier league but not beyond so here's a different senario.

Cortese appoints Nigel with the specific brief to get us up. On completion of that task, just after the end of last season, the two men appear together shaking hands and wishing each other well. Nigel goes off with his nice bonus to seek new employment. Cortese brings in his new 'premier league man' who has the whole of pre season and the transfer window to get his squad ready for the big push. Nigel is welcome back at SMS at any time.

When we appointed Scunny's physio he was never going to have the contacts that other more high profile managers like say a Pardew would have.

Cortese has surrounded himself with yes men and no one stands up to him or questions him - if they do they're gone. We will alienate ourselves in the football world if we are not careful. And to those who say 'I dont care, neh neh ne neeh neh' Alienate = other clubs and more importantly their managers for loans, agents for signings, players coming here etc.

It's not difficult, keep the vision going, drive forward but change the bloody style.

I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success. I was hoping to be appointed editor of the Big Issue when I told the proprietor at my interview that I thought we could create 250,000 more Big Issue selling jobs for the unemployed if lots and lots of big tits were put in it. But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever.

The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies.

By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.
Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.
Would have been a good idea, but all those 'babes' you mention have been snapped up by NC as programme sellers.

Once again, NC - barsteward that he may be to some - is ahead of tha game.
Well you could be right. There are some great looking girls there arn't there? I'm thinking he'd sell a lot more programmes though if they were all topless. Specially in this cold weather!!
You get turned on by goosebumps, do you?

I agree with Strass, Bermondsey and Three Halves.

Many are saying that Nigel was right to get us to the premier league but not beyond so here's a different senario.

Cortese appoints Nigel with the specific brief to get us up. On completion of that task, just after the end of last season, the two men appear together shaking hands and wishing each other well. Nigel goes off with his nice bonus to seek new employment. Cortese brings in his new 'premier league man' who has the whole of pre season and the transfer window to get his squad ready for the big push. Nigel is welcome back at SMS at any time.

When we appointed Scunny's physio he was never going to have the contacts that other more high profile managers like say a Pardew would have.

Cortese has surrounded himself with yes men and no one stands up to him or questions him - if they do they're gone. We will alienate ourselves in the football world if we are not careful. And to those who say 'I dont care, neh neh ne neeh neh' Alienate = other clubs and more importantly their managers for loans, agents for signings, players coming here etc.

It's not difficult, keep the vision going, drive forward but change the bloody style.
Thumbs up for that one. It is time for change, and if the present Government plans are fulfilled the whole of the Football League are going to have to change too along with the methods of the big money Clubs, there may be better opportunities for us but we have to get it right.

I watched Nigel's interview after the Chelsea game, and it was obvious he realised what was going on behind his back. Seed house has intimated this on several occasions in his posts this season. Sad, underhanded, and no way to run a business. And by the way, I am speaking as someone who runs a business employing 13 people. Many of them have been with me for a very long time, and that is because they trust me. I wonder if Cortese is now trusted by those he employs.[/p][/quote]Man, I had no idea Donald Trump was a Saints fan. It's a pleasure to have you on board.[/p][/quote]More intelligence from the clan. Not claiming to be anything but a small business owner who knows the value of decency. I realise that that diss bars me from being a "true" saints fan by many on here, but some intelligence in responses wouldn't go amiss.[/p][/quote]Look, the fact Nigel seemed to know what was going on and that this didn't come as a massive surprise to him suggests he wasn't being kept in the dark, doesn't it? You seem determined to knock Nicola and that's fair enough - I'm sure he can handle it. But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions. Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...[/p][/quote]Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.[/p][/quote]But then, Bermondsey, you did rather suggest that he (and others) lack intelligence! Don't you think that could be taken as offensive?[/p][/quote]May I but in? Bermondsey, I see your point. I believe that every business should try to implement good business practice and that includes treating your staff fairly. I'm a Nigel fan and always will be. His achievement and the way he conducted himself will never be lost on me. That's now gone and, as has been said time and time again on here, Nigel will be fine. He's moved on, now we have to. My concerns are twofold: 1. The way it appears to have been handled - most of that 'appears' bit is because we don't know all the details and the Sky interview failed to ask any searching questions. 2. With NA, given the squad as it was, I think we would have been fine this season. That position has shifted, so we're now sailing in uncertain waters. MP may be the greatest thing since sliced bread; I hope so. However, I will reserve my judgement on that - BUT ...... I will be 100% behind him, just as I will be with NC and just as I was with Nigel. Come on board, it's a great ride![/p][/quote]I agree with Strass, Bermondsey and Three Halves.

The fact that no-one knows what's going on in the transfer window must be great for the journalists. They can just print every exciting or worrying rumour. I think the key to success is just to make sure that non-news and minor news is given the same emphasis and headline size etc as geniune big news.

I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success. I was hoping to be appointed editor of the Big Issue when I told the proprietor at my interview that I thought we could create 250,000 more Big Issue selling jobs for the unemployed if lots and lots of big tits were put in it. But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever.

The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies.

By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.
Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.
Would have been a good idea, but all those 'babes' you mention have been snapped up by NC as programme sellers.

Once again, NC - barsteward that he may be to some - is ahead of tha game.
Well you could be right. There are some great looking girls there arn't there? I'm thinking he'd sell a lot more programmes though if they were all topless. Specially in this cold weather!!

I think the key to success is just to make sure that non-news and minor news is given the same emphasis and headline size etc as geniune big news. I've been trying to get into the business for a while myself without success. I was hoping to be appointed editor of the Big Issue when I told the proprietor at my interview that I thought we could create 250,000 more Big Issue selling jobs for the unemployed if lots and lots of big tits were put in it. But it wasn't to be and of course it's still as boring as ever. The Echo also turned down my submitted article revealing the true reason why Nigel was sacked. I had two separate sources confirming my story that whilst Nicola was happy with all the footballing matters he was disturbed to hear that at breakfast time Nigel was often seen having quite long conversations with his Rice Crispies. By the way, I don't want to upset any of my mates on here so if you see an advert in the Sex Phoneline classified ad column of the Daily Star under the banner "Listen to me moan! - £1.20 per min", please ignore it. It's just a recording of my missus **** about me leaving coffee cups around the house and not wiping my feet properly when I come into house.[/p][/quote]Perhaps a rival issue would be on the cards. It could be called the Big Titsue. I'm pretty sure some topless babes on the street alongside the Big Issue sellers would be a much bigger seller.[/p][/quote]Would have been a good idea, but all those 'babes' you mention have been snapped up by NC as programme sellers. Once again, NC - barsteward that he may be to some - is ahead of tha game.[/p][/quote]Well you could be right. There are some great looking girls there arn't there? I'm thinking he'd sell a lot more programmes though if they were all topless. Specially in this cold weather!![/p][/quote]You get turned on by goosebumps, do you?[/p][/quote]Well it doesn't take much these days I must admit!! Clever Dick

Do you really honestly think that Ramirez had an offer from liverpool, but rejected the chance to join 2 compatriots and a large contingent of young spanish speaking players to join Saints (a team that by his own admission he didn't know much about)?

Hundreds of players every year are speculatively linked by the tabloids to clubs like Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea etc... mostly without any substance.
Grief! The scouser's up early this morning. It's probably CleverDick's fault (although I have to admit I'm only speculating). If he hadn't kept banging on about nudity, topless programme sellers and t!ts, Guyster would have stayed in his Toxteth bed until his giro hit the mat.

Oh, it's Tuesday! It has!

P.S. Guyster, what do you mean by 'mostly without any substance' ? We're a saintly lot, we don't DO drugs :)

No in all seriousness, there's never been any quote from anyone from Liverpool or Bologna suggesting that there was any attempt to sign Ramirez by Liverpool.

After signing Suarez and Coates, it was just very fashionable to link Uruguayans to Liverpool; Ramirez wasn't the only one.

Actually I agree with three halves and five trophies. Your acunt!

The first thing I said to the current Mrs Retford was "I thought you'd be a right c*** but you're alright".

Nice to see you back. I just love to see what jealousy and anger can do to a person. I suppose we would feel pretty sick if our club was falling apart and yours was flourishing. So I'll just sign off now, go and have a little nap, and dream of the £200million that now seperates our 2 clubs. So keep dreaming of your distant past. We're playing Man U this week by the way.
there may be trophies ahead

but while theres pompey, and ponies and carrotts and grass

They may not always be right but a working relationship can still be carried on in such circumstances. If I valued my job I don't think I would be having too many disagreements with Mr. Cortese. Just the one would probably be enough!! Anyway let's hope he carries on being right all the time.
Only time will tell if this decision is right. My main issue is the way it has been executed, and the reasoning behind it. Time will be the judge.

To quote that American dude on Ripper Street, like. Is anyone watching that? It's fcuking AMAZING. I'll be honest: I'd dismissed Jerome Flynn as nothing but a moon-faced granny-crooner, but he is a revelation in it. It's done for him what Pulp Fiction did for John Travolta.
Too true, and IMO Robson Greene is great in Extreme Fishing. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly shows him in a better light.

I'm a c*** and so's my wife.
Serves you right. I gave up oral sex when my Auntie Elspeth gave me a very nice embroidery for my bedroom wall with the words "You are what you eat" woven on it.

At first I used to turn the light out because it put me off my gobbling stroke when I kept casting my eye up and saw it, but even then, you know, I sort of had it still stuck in my mind and couldn't concentrate.

The missus started to complain about my flawed technique, but then I got myself off the hook forever by getting a Chinese doctor I know to give me a made up diagnosis stating that pubic hairs, which commonly contain C10 dioxatonemolodanide monothalate, give certain people such as me ulcers on the tongue.

Anyway, I hope this is helpful - but if you do not agree with Auntie Elspeth's embroidered statement, make sure you forget about this post and put it right out of your mind the next time you are in the muff.

So I'll just sign off now, go and have a little nap, and dream of the £200million that now seperates our 2 clubs. So keep dreaming of your distant past. We're playing Man U this week by the way.
there may be trophies ahead but while theres pompey, and ponies and carrotts and grass lets just turn up and be pants its gonna be a classic
Ha ha very droll. I am off for some retail therapy, keep it going until I come back.
With your business doing so well five bellies perhaps you can know pledge your donation to the PST, 2000 pledges so far and only half have been actually converted, how many loyal fans did you say you had?
Do you know what the current market value of your...well for argument sake lets call it a stadium, is worth?
Any idea,s of what the club may be named when you become a legacy club, maybe your friends here have some suggestions for you to ponder. Anyone care to give it bash?
Tell you what, best name wins a trophy. Does anyone know anyone with a trophy for sell that need a bit of cash in a hurry?
competition ends on Jan 31, sorry its so short but some fat skate called Westwood said he would like to know soon so he can book an appointment at 'no hopers' tattoo parlour in saffsee, and contact deed poll again.
My choice is:

Serves you right. I gave up oral sex when my Auntie Elspeth gave me a very nice embroidery for my bedroom wall with the words "You are what you eat" woven on it.

At first I used to turn the light out because it put me off my gobbling stroke when I kept casting my eye up and saw it, but even then, you know, I sort of had it still stuck in my mind and couldn't concentrate.

The missus started to complain about my flawed technique, but then I got myself off the hook forever by getting a Chinese doctor I know to give me a made up diagnosis stating that pubic hairs, which commonly contain C10 dioxatonemolodanide monothalate, give certain people such as me ulcers on the tongue.

Anyway, I hope this is helpful - but if you do not agree with Auntie Elspeth's embroidered statement, make sure you forget about this post and put it right out of your mind the next time you are in the muff.

A question: if you could only win one of the next two games, which would it be?

I know that Wigan is technically a six-pointer but, by christ, wouldn't it be sweeter to destroy the Mancs?
Let's meet for a beer.

I'd take the Manc game. If we were rooted to the bottom I'd take the Wigan game.
Yes, let's. By all accounts the Wigan stadium is at some horrible out-of-town retail park or something but there has to be a pub nearby.

Andrea Ramazzotti, who covers Inter for Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport and has watched all Coutinho's 28 games for the club, told BBC Sport: "He just didn't show his potential in Milan. Coutinho played very well when he was on loan at Espanyol last season, and started well for Inter this season, but they were only brief spells really.

"For the rest of the time he just showed flashes of his potential and I fear the way of playing in England, which can be very physical, will not suit him, because he has a slight frame."

Correct.

I know people are getting very protective of Cortese of late and I understand that, but, at the beginning of this window I think everyone appreciated that we needed to strengthen the defence and keeping position (about 75% said so in the Echo poll).

Add to that the 95% of us that thought Nigel was unfairly treated and you have to assume NC is either a mad genius or just plain blinkered.

I think about 8% of us said midfield/winger area needed strengthening in that poll, so why is everyone we are linked to either an attacking midfielder or a striker?

Echoes of the summer. Let's hope NC really is a tactical genius rather than just a good businessman, because what he's been doing kind of flies in the face of logic to most of us and most on-lookers.

Team will get 100% full support from me though, no matter what. COYR.

He, he. Let's see what he's like first on that one. Sounds more like Ramirez to me. Whatever, I think paying big money for that type of player is a massive gamble - can totally depend on whether the club suits, whether they get a run of games early on and who those games are against.

What do you think you're outcome will be?:

1 PST eventually takeover
2 Someones else takes over
3 Liquidation
Hey Billy, Forren didn't speak to Adkins. Let me guess he spoke to you and your "high up inside contact". Tell us another fib Billy.
Hello matey. You've sussed me out. It was all made up. Oh the embarrassment of it all. I've never even been to St Mary's to be honest.

Yes, let's. By all accounts the Wigan stadium is at some horrible out-of-town retail park or something but there has to be a pub nearby.

Right, it's high time to start whipping up some anti-Man U hysteria. Did everyone know the entire empire is built on selling poisoned meat to kids? Much like Jimmy Savile, the guy responsible cheated justice by dying, but unlike Jimmy Savile his legacy lives on and is applauded by 70,000 fans a week. That makes all United fans apologists for child abuse. So think on.

Andrea Ramazzotti, who covers Inter for Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport and has watched all Coutinho's 28 games for the club, told BBC Sport: "He just didn't show his potential in Milan. Coutinho played very well when he was on loan at Espanyol last season, and started well for Inter this season, but they were only brief spells really.

"For the rest of the time he just showed flashes of his potential and I fear the way of playing in England, which can be very physical, will not suit him, because he has a slight frame."

I'm not that impressed by him but the "Echo" video showed he is great at falling over, even showed it in slowmo!
Maybe that's why the Scousers want him now that the refs have found out Suarez!

Correct.

I know people are getting very protective of Cortese of late and I understand that, but, at the beginning of this window I think everyone appreciated that we needed to strengthen the defence and keeping position (about 75% said so in the Echo poll).

Add to that the 95% of us that thought Nigel was unfairly treated and you have to assume NC is either a mad genius or just plain blinkered.

I think about 8% of us said midfield/winger area needed strengthening in that poll, so why is everyone we are linked to either an attacking midfielder or a striker?

Echoes of the summer. Let's hope NC really is a tactical genius rather than just a good businessman, because what he's been doing kind of flies in the face of logic to most of us and most on-lookers.

Team will get 100% full support from me though, no matter what. COYR.
Assumption is a wonderful thing ain't it!

You going to Wigan?
You bet.

A question: if you could only win one of the next two games, which would it be?

I know that Wigan is technically a six-pointer but, by christ, wouldn't it be sweeter to destroy the Mancs?
Let's meet for a beer.

I'd take the Manc game. If we were rooted to the bottom I'd take the Wigan game.
Yes, let's. By all accounts the Wigan stadium is at some horrible out-of-town retail park or something but there has to be a pub nearby.
I'm sure we can sniff one out. I shall get the chauffeur on the case. We're going for beer and curry in Rusholme after.

And by the way, I am speaking as someone who runs a business employing 13 people. Many of them have been with me for a very long time, and that is because they trust me. I wonder if Cortese is now trusted by those he employs.
Man, I had no idea Donald Trump was a Saints fan. It's a pleasure to have you on board.
More intelligence from the clan. Not claiming to be anything but a small business owner who knows the value of decency.
I realise that that diss bars me from being a "true" saints fan by many on here, but some intelligence in responses wouldn't go amiss.
Look, the fact Nigel seemed to know what was going on and that this didn't come as a massive surprise to him suggests he wasn't being kept in the dark, doesn't it?

You seem determined to knock Nicola and that's fair enough - I'm sure he can handle it. But running a small business from some railway arch in South London is a very different kettle of fish to running a Premier League football club with aspirations to become Top 6. Sometimes you have to take tough decisions.

Neither you or I know much detail about exactly how Nigel was treated, so all we can really judge this decision on is its effectiveness. And on that score, we'll see...
Almost a good post. But something tells me that that you are better than "running a small business from a railway arch". Why does the need to be offensive so prevalent on here. It's normally used in place of a reasoned response. As I said, I think you are probably better than that. In any case good business practice applies whatever the size of business.
But then, Bermondsey, you did rather suggest that he (and others) lack intelligence! Don't you think that could be taken as offensive?
May I but in? Bermondsey, I see your point. I believe that every business should try to implement good business practice and that includes treating your staff fairly.

I'm a Nigel fan and always will be. His achievement and the way he conducted himself will never be lost on me.

That's now gone and, as has been said time and time again on here, Nigel will be fine. He's moved on, now we have to.

My concerns are twofold:
1. The way it appears to have been handled - most of that 'appears' bit is because we don't know all the details and the Sky interview failed to ask any searching questions.
2. With NA, given the squad as it was, I think we would have been fine this season. That position has shifted, so we're now sailing in uncertain waters. MP may be the greatest thing since sliced bread; I hope so. However, I will reserve my judgement on that - BUT ...... I will be 100% behind him, just as I will be with NC and just as I was with Nigel.

Come on board, it's a great ride!
I agree with Strass, Bermondsey and Three Halves.

Many are saying that Nigel was right to get us to the premier league but not beyond so here's a different senario.

Cortese appoints Nigel with the specific brief to get us up. On completion of that task, just after the end of last season, the two men appear together shaking hands and wishing each other well. Nigel goes off with his nice bonus to seek new employment. Cortese brings in his new 'premier league man' who has the whole of pre season and the transfer window to get his squad ready for the big push. Nigel is welcome back at SMS at any time.

When we appointed Scunny's physio he was never going to have the contacts that other more high profile managers like say a Pardew would have.

Cortese has surrounded himself with yes men and no one stands up to him or questions him - if they do they're gone. We will alienate ourselves in the football world if we are not careful. And to those who say 'I dont care, neh neh ne neeh neh' Alienate = other clubs and more importantly their managers for loans, agents for signings, players coming here etc.

It's not difficult, keep the vision going, drive forward but change the bloody style.
Thumbs up for that one. It is time for change, and if the present Government plans are fulfilled the whole of the Football League are going to have to change too along with the methods of the big money Clubs, there may be better opportunities for us but we have to get it right.
In case you wondered what I was wittering on about, there is a new thread up Premier League "has too much influence" over English Football say MP's which will explain it.

The game against United will be interesting to see who MP starts with bearing in mind the recent training in Barcelona. We know Guly isn't fit. Lallana has to be doubtful. Will he field a strong side? Will he rest players for the Wigan game when 3 points is more achievable? This is how I see the line up for tomorrow:

Boruc

Clyne
Hoovield
Yashida
Fox

Spider
Cork
Ramirez
Puncheon

J Rod
Lambert

Bench: Gazzaniga, Shaw, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Lalana (if fit), Fodden, Lee

It's a strange phenomenon: no-one seems to be able to remember Forren's name. He's like Jack Nicholson in The Witches of Eastwick.

We need to invent an easy-to-remember nickname. Big Veg is my suggestion.

You going to Wigan?
You bet.

A question: if you could only win one of the next two games, which would it be?

I know that Wigan is technically a six-pointer but, by christ, wouldn't it be sweeter to destroy the Mancs?
Let's meet for a beer.

I'd take the Manc game. If we were rooted to the bottom I'd take the Wigan game.
Yes, let's. By all accounts the Wigan stadium is at some horrible out-of-town retail park or something but there has to be a pub nearby.
I'm sure we can sniff one out. I shall get the chauffeur on the case. We're going for beer and curry in Rusholme after.
My chauffeur's chauffeur says he thinks the The Olde Pussed Boil in Orwell Street' s a good 'un, but he's going to double check with his chauffeur.
Apparently there actually is a bar called The Orwell on Wigan Pier. Let's all meet there!

We can all dress up as our favourite George Orwell characters for ease of recognition. Bagsy not being anything from Animal Farm.

Cracks me up that you keep bringing up gate numbers - your own gates could be described better with a play on your name - three halfwits.

You are very good at counting empty seats but would be much quicker if you counted the people who turned up in Pompey's case - people should tell your fans that it's only the court cases that get adjourned, not the fixtures.

The game against United will be interesting to see who MP starts with bearing in mind the recent training in Barcelona. We know Guly isn't fit. Lallana has to be doubtful.

Boruc

Clyne
Hoovield
Yashida
Fox

Spider
Cork
Ramirez
Puncheon

J Rod
Lambert

Bench: Gazzaniga, Shaw, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Lalana (if fit), Fodden, Lee
Fox at left back. Mmmmmm, brave man.

Not sure I'd be resting anyone for this game. Only changes for me would be to bring Forren in for Jos and J Rod in for the injured Guly. Will be interesting though as there is an argument for Ward-Prowse for Guly to close up the midfield and play one up front.

Lallana for last 15 minutes just to give him game time.

I don't know, I'll drop the 'the' though.

Anyone else?
Like yours, but it needs that little extra..
Skunt (Hampshire Inbreds) Town FC

That way they can have this under their badge

S(HI)T FC
oh now thats genius, I like it. fcuk it this is the winner, I'll grab one of those trophies off osprey and get it engraved with your name on it, I don't know of anyone else with any trophies off the top of my head but if anyone hears of any let me know will ya!
Well done st1halo your a winner!

I don't know, I'll drop the 'the' though. Anyone else?[/p][/quote]Like yours, but it needs that little extra.. Skunt (Hampshire Inbreds) Town FC That way they can have this under their badge S(HI)T FC[/p][/quote]oh now thats genius, I like it. fcuk it this is the winner, I'll grab one of those trophies off osprey and get it engraved with your name on it, I don't know of anyone else with any trophies off the top of my head but if anyone hears of any let me know will ya! Well done st1halo your a winner! I can't wait to see westwoods new tattoo's, the **** won't even realise until he gets in the pub and shows his skunt mates..."what da ya mean it looks like ****"...lol I can see it now, s(hi)t fc continue their terrible run and go down 5-0 to salisbury city in the conference south...happy days! rednwhite72

'I knew that there was a managerial change and the new manager wanted me here'. Sounds a bit like he didn't speak to MP either.

Indeed. And that's the worry.

We outbid Liverpool for Coutinho and presumably at least matched their wage offer. MP has recently worked with him but he turned us down and Inter had to sell him for less money which sort of flies in the face of the reason for appointing MP.
You base all of this on one greedy player - who is obviously only after the wages - which we wont pay! TW&T
