  • "Great win by Saints today, brilliant performance and good to see our individual performances are returning at the right time as our passing movement and all round game is back to what we were doing in first half of season. Cannot believe people are still moaning Saints have been through sticky spell of results and just come through ome fixtures against teams around us and we have only dropped to 2nd in the table, last three results have improved and we are back on top after todays result and playing very well again and looking like we are going on another push for promotion back to the promise land. onwards and upwards good luck players and management for rest of season and COYR. A word about Pompey dont want them to fold completely but would like the football league to severly punish them How can they sign players as they should be under a transfer embargo anyway and also have young players out on loan so if they cannot field enough subs like today at Barnsley then they should recall them young players and play them rather than loaning better players from other clubs? Pompey have so far got off very lightly compared to other clubs as this is in fact a third time the football club has been in administration and at the moment there parent company is as well, come on football league fairs fair respect the previous clubs that have suffered administration rather than change rules to help out poor old Pompey!!!!!!!!"

SAINTS climbed back to the top of the Championship after demolishing Derby 4-0 at St Mary’s today.

Goals from Jos Hooiveld, Aaron Martin, Adam Lallana and Tadanari Lee lifted them above West Ham, who are not in action this weekend.

Saints are now two points clear of the Hammers at the head of the table, although they have played twice more than Sam Allardyce’s side.

Nigel Adkins’ men also lead third-placed Reading by five points, with the Royals holding one game in hand on them.

And Saints received an extra boost today, as fourth-placed Cardiff slipped up 3-0 at Ipswich.
