Adkins has been out of his depth ever since he bought Fox. We don't have a left-back, which means other defenders like Hooiveld and Fonte are continually pulled out of position trying to cover the left-back position. It's an impossible task at this level.

Not Adkins' fault for sticking with the same team that started so well against United. I don't think anyone on here would pick a different side considering the new players have only been with the squad 2 days. It's these individual errors we need to cut out. On the bright side, we're 3-2 up on goals scored and are the first team to score against Arsenal this season.

People routinely underestimate the role of luck in football. We were lucky to go 2-1 up against Man C after all their close misses.

People routinely underestimate the role of luck in football. We were lucky to go 2-1 up against Man C after all their close misses. We were really unlucky to lose 2-0 to Wigan... hitting the bar, etc... And today two of the goals were really unlucky. Yup, we were outplayed, but the unlucky goals shattered confidence and made the situation a lot worse.

watching on Firstrow Sports and the Arsenal tactic is to stop any and all Saints players getting a touch, they haven't singled out anyone.
Lallana is not getting much of the ball and I think Ward-Prowse has probably only had 2 or 3 touches. Steven Davis is arriving late for most tackles and probably needs to get more speed to his game. Clyne has done well with some tackles and Fox has not made mistakes for his detractors to grasp and blame.
Most of us said that we would be lucky to get anything from 3 of the 4 starting games, Wigan was a let down.
Second half of this game will dictate the rest of the season as the players need to get their heads around the situaution and come out fighting.
No credit so far from this game.
Come on Saints, you can beat this sh!t !

I can see some big improvements evolving from the class and speed of Gaston in the team.. Good Luck Lads and my pick for our motm - Punch.

Keep calm everybody.

We have just played three of the teams that will finish in the top four places come the end of the season.The only real surprise so far was the Wigan result although toward the end of last season lets not forget that they were the form team.

Please give Mr Adkins a fair crack of the whip. The alternative is to go back to numerous managers as was the case with the Dark Lord Rupert and we all know where that got us!

There is an old expression "be careful in what you wish for" least we forget that old rubber face from Bournemouth is available!

Saints were outplayed on every area of the pitch with at times piteous ease.They couldn't hold the ball, they barely threatened when they had it, their midfield was aimless and thei tactics fell apart. When you lose 6-1 it's hard to find anything to cling on to.
But I think its important that people back Nigel because without him Saints are doomed,he will get it right.

If we had played Norwich, Reading, West ham and QPR then fair enough, However we have been handed a tuff start and i think at best most fans would have thought we would be on a maximum 3 points by now (not far off are we)

No 6-1 isnt good, Arsenal have always done us at home though, remember the 7-1 before the cup final? and i actually think they are going to be the surprise package this year.

This is just a blip, our new players have only been with us a few days and will now benefit from a week together as a squad, the performances against City and United showed we can certainly compete at this level. Now we have a run of games which we can get results from we should be getting behind our team even more.

By the way Mr Non fair weather supporter, The new defenders name is Yoshida.

Anyone calling for NA's head this early in the season is a knob. I personally believe he is going to be one of our best ever managers (he's already done pretty darn well!) and even if he weren't, even if he were complete cack, remember the year we went down? One major reason for that was three managers in one season. Changing now means healf a season waiting for a new guy to get his feet under the door, and bringing in another half a team in the Jan window. What we need to do is get behind Nigel, support the team, and help them to believe. I believe in this team, this management, and my club; even if we got relegated I would still want him to stay, I would still support him and all the players who out on the kit, and would still be Saints till I die.

I am a massive supporter of NA,but feel for the first time that he could be out of his depth. We started with a 4-5-1 to try and contain the best attacking side in the prem,massive mistake,it wasnt until we pushed up with a 4-4 -2 that we pegged them back a bit.
I fear for him to be honest,there has been a huge outlay in cash to bring players in and I wonder where the line in the sand is drawn,probably by NC.
I cant see us going two more games with no points and NA still in a job.
I find that a depressing reality of the modern game,but the ability to change a game within a game is a rare commodity that only a few possess,
Please NA prove me wrong.
Play to our strengths and let them worry about how to counter it.
Best of luck fella,but Im worried for you
By the way Fox did OK.But Kelvin another left hand post goal,thats 3 so far.And that folks is our weak point,not foxy,but our lack in depth regards goalkeeping back up.

The reason they were on the bench is cause a lot of them have had little time to train with the team. But can i say after 4 loses Saints supporters are still holding there heads up high. Look at Liverpool, had an easy fixture list compared to us, and look where they are. Been on there forums there fans sound beaten and ashamed, nothing positive there. And look and Pompey fans, they have to come here to big up there club cause there forums look like the Texas chainsaw massacre.

Why put them on the bench if they're not ready? Ramirez coming on second half certainly improved things. Should of played from the start. End of

I would have put them on the bench, look at the utd match. We did not have the talent to replace players. At least put them on the bench knowing they might add something if needed. Cause watching the match there were a few instances where Ramirez drifted to get the ball only to find another saints player doing exactly the same thing. so hopefully in training the team will learn each others ways more. So all good really, i did think the same thing before the match started but when the subs came on i understood why.

Agree with that, but positives for me was Maya. Looks like he might be our man to really get our defence under control. Give it a week for training and hopefully we will see a difference. Mind you a bit worried about Davis at the minute, seems to have Vasaline on his gloves!!

Supporter of the club in the adjoining county. It strikes me that your Mr Positivity, Nige, has been a bit naive in his preparations for the hardest league in the world by focusing his efforts on scoring goals which your team were pretty good at anyway rather that taking care of business at the back end, starting with your goalkeeper who seems to be a bit overawed by the journey.

It's hard to see what, if anything, you can do about it now as there are no defenders/goalkeeper
s knocking around of sufficient quality you could get in on loan to make things better.

Lambert might have got his head around things at AV having got a result today and obviously drawing on his experience from last year so I wouldn't be too confident about getting points on the board next Saturday if I were you.

I suspect there is a sandpit at St Mary's where NC and NA bury ther heads ostrich fashion, while they are doing this, someone wants to give them a good kick up the a*se!
If ordinary supporters spotted these weaknesses long before they hit us in the face with 4 games, 4 losses and 14 goals against, why on earth coudn't NA and NC??
The odds on NA being the first Premier League manager to lose his job have shortened dramatically and understandably so, remember what happened to Pardew!

i am so fed up with the idiots we get on here, sack adkins cortese and half the team!
give me a break, 4 games into a season and all the `experts` are telling us where one of the best managers we have ever had is going wrong, we should have brought this we should have brought that! hes rubbish hes in the wrong position, we are playing the wrong formation! some people are not happy unless they are moaning. if you want to support a team who has all the best players in the best positions and do not lose often then move to barcelona! if you want to support saints then please do so but please stop moaning about every little thing, if you think adkins is not up to the prem after 4 games, 3 of which against the prob top 3, then no amount of explanation of how well he has done in so little time will help you! 2years ago we were in L1 last year we were in the championship, this year we are in the prem! if you think you are better than that then please send your cv into NC! who do you think would do a better job? redkrapp, hoddle? do me a favour. we at this moment in time are in a better position than we have ever been in before! we have a great manager and coaching staff and some of the best players to ever wear the shirt! yes perhaps we should have brought more defenders, but do you not think they tried? do you not think that the deals fell though at the last minute?
how many of the `experts` were saying that we need to change from a 442 this season as it wont work in the prem? some of these `experts` have now said we should have played 442 from the start today! hindsight is a wonderful wonderful thing and makes a perfect manager out of everyone! you cant manage a team by hindsight! give the team and adkins a chance to prove themselves and we will soon start winning games.
as for the fish, your club will soon be pointless too, when you are wiped from existence! ha ha

We've just come out of a run of four games that included the teams that finished top three last year. Were you expecting 12 points by now?

I usually try to be an optimist but after todays game I cannot see a light at the
end of the tunnel. We just do not have
the defenders capable of playing in the
Premier - Clyne and Maya being the
exceptions. We have possibly lost Jos
for awhile so we have even fewer defenders to call upon. I am glad
that Luke Shaw was not selected as
this would have not helped his
confidence. Although I have always
supported NA/NC I can only repeat
- why oh why did we not concentrate
on strengthening our defence first?
This is the first rule of football and the
signs were there last season.
If we do not get 3 points against Villa
next week then it saddens me to say
that I think NA will be leaving and
our chances of staying in the
Premier will be slim to say the least.
The only bright spot of the game
was Ramirez.
I am not saying the team did not try
but the defence cannot cope and
there are no better players available
on a free.
Thank goodness Hampshire have
given us something to cheer about.
Sorry to sound so negative but
IMO is a realistic assessment of the
situation. Can only hope I am proved
wrong as I have supported Saints
for 62 years and would hate to see
them fail.

Find me a post where *anyone* says that we don't need to strengthen our defence.

The only posts on here that mention the defence specifically talk about improving it, so your post is a little daft, really.

I do love the fact that people come on here and seriously suggest things along the lines of "if I can see it, why can't NA?" (or in your case "I can see it, why can't anyone else")

Of course he can see it. I'm sure that in the transfer window strenuous efforts were being made. However, they have come to nothing bar Yoshi, so what's your plan for NA miraculously to strengthen the defence?

Good on You Buster.. Like youe post a lot.

In 2010 Pards spent the biggest budget in L1 to rebuild us.. he got one win in 10 games and got a right slagging by the faithless fickle ones.

Then after he was replaced the fickle ones went for the Chairman.. but we saw a redemption none of us really expected with back to back promotions.

We've spent record money and we just saw the first game with the new players on the bench after two days with the team.. They were thrashed by a team of some of the most expensive players ever assembled primed and ready for champions league.

Two of the players trained by Saints acknowledged the Saints Mighty Away Fans.. they showed us more respect than so many of the writers on here.

I'm immensely proud of the lads and do believe they'll learn and improve..

I have always been a huge fan of Nigel Adkins. I have, however, heard that he tried it dismiss him over the Summer, but he was outvoted by the board. Although I don't/won't agree with it, I think his days might just be numbered. I think that that many of the Summer signings were NC's rather than NA's. Looking at managers that are out of work.........I am concerned

how many of the `experts` were saying that we need to change from a 442 this season as it wont work in the prem? some of these `experts` have now said we should have played 442 from the start today! hindsight is a wonderful wonderful thing and makes a perfect manager out of everyone! you cant manage a team by hindsight! give the team and adkins a chance to prove themselves and we will soon start winning games.
as for the fish, your club will soon be pointless too, when you are wiped from existence! ha ha
Well Said, People seem to forget the amount of Hard work that goes into the team. Over the past 2 Seasons they have worked there socks of, what for? to listen to idiots Slag them off when its not going there way. I am Proud to be a Saints Supporter, not because of the prem and success. But because in the Hard times we stuck together and battled through it, Something alot of you have plainly forgot. We share the good and the bad, whats important is we get behind the team week in week out, no matter what the result is.
Sorry I wont stand and clap when things aren't right. I've got season tickets and have a right to my opinion.

Jet lagged lol. He's probably on £60,000 a week and plays one game, don't make me laugh. And as of my English I'm dyslexic so have problems
Jetlag doesn't discriminate on the wealthy or anyone else, have you never globe trotted yourself?
No I can't afford such things after spending all my money on season tickets.
That would explain your lack of knowledge on many things.

The most puzzling statistic was that Arsenal had 70% possession, which would indicate a lack of desire to keep the ball. 12 of their shots on target, only 4 of our 9. This was not a regular Saints performance, there will be a major inquest after this one and hopefully all put right for Villa.

The club is extremely secretive. NC is very controlling on all other aspects of the 'business' so it would be out of character if he had no input to signings, and certainly he wll be in charge of negotiations so how much he really wants a player will come into play. Those two did work well as a team and must do so again and I still believe they are well suited to working together. Now is not the time to panic. We have some great new signings yet to bed in, together with the high quality youth coming through, and those that have lifted their level from our previous team - Adam, Rickie, Morgan and Jason.

Agreed. I'm impressed that the vast majority on here are staying positive and backing the team. It's vital we keep doing this. Yes we've spent money but until the new look side has had time to train together and play a full game we're judging a work in progress.

Going into the last few minutes, Warwickshire needed 5 to win ....



......... so did we :(

Whichever way you look at it, this was a below-standard performance on a day when we needed to raise our game to have a chance. The own goals were unlucky but, from what I managed to see on a dodgy internet link that kept freezing, 4-1 at half-time was a fair reflection. I had the impression we matched them for most of the second half.

We're all frustrated that at least one more CB wasn't signed, but none of us are as frustrated as NA. We know he wanted to get more players in but the RIGHT ones, not just any old journeymen.

The new players are still bedding in. Lee and Cork are coming back from injury, better days lie ahead; have faith.

As for next week, no games are easy at this level but it's a great chance to kick start the season. Let's hope we take it.

Well done Hampshire, you cheered me up.

Saints were very poor in the first half , but once the brought Ramirez on and played further up the pitch they did not look a bad side. Giving the fact that they won' t be playing the Manchester clubs and Arsenal each week, Saints will score enough goals to keep them up.Adkins must be more positive.

If we had played Norwich, Reading, West ham and QPR then fair enough, However we have been handed a tuff start and i think at best most fans would have thought we would be on a maximum 3 points by now (not far off are we)

No 6-1 isnt good, Arsenal have always done us at home though, remember the 7-1 before the cup final? and i actually think they are going to be the surprise package this year.

This is just a blip, our new players have only been with us a few days and will now benefit from a week together as a squad, the performances against City and United showed we can certainly compete at this level. Now we have a run of games which we can get results from we should be getting behind our team even more.

By the way Mr Non fair weather supporter, The new defenders name is Yoshida.
Thanks for the defenders name been playing with my daughter all day, thought it as MOSHI or Yoshi but couldnt remember.

How can we sign anyone now given that the transfer window is closed and we are not allowed to loan players?
Do you think a world class GK or LB is likely to be out of contract as that is the only way we can sign them now!?
And as I've asked you before Do you seriously think NA and NC don't know what we need???

It's never easy when you take a drubbing and that was certainly handed out to us today but all teams get them. Arsenal and Man u had it last year. Hopefully the lads will have come off the pitch never wanting a repeat of that feeling. If thats the case a lesson has been learned
NA has made an outstanding contribution to this club thus far and , even though I have always had my doubts about his tactical abilities (and that is my only doubt about him) he has earnt my respect and so I back him. He is learning just as the players are.

The only posts on here that mention the defence specifically talk about improving it, so your post is a little daft, really.

I do love the fact that people come on here and seriously suggest things along the lines of "if I can see it, why can't NA?" (or in your case "I can see it, why can't anyone else")

Of course he can see it. I'm sure that in the transfer window strenuous efforts were being made. However, they have come to nothing bar Yoshi, so what's your plan for NA miraculously to strengthen the defence?
After Man United I said we needed to strengthen our defence & was ripped into by certain posters.
So sorry my post was accurate as those people said this was only because of the teams we were playing.
In the championship it was obvious that the defence would not be good enough for the Premiership yet it hasn't been strengthened why not? who decides where we strengthen & who we buy?

Indeed. Only four matches played. When a mere two wins could turn everything round its all about perspective. Our squad is not complete yet. But it has an awesome array of talent and ability.
We will be fine and any true fan with any gumption knows this.

Find me a post where *anyone* says that we don't need to strengthen our defence.

The only posts on here that mention the defence specifically talk about improving it, so your post is a little daft, really.

I do love the fact that people come on here and seriously suggest things along the lines of "if I can see it, why can't NA?" (or in your case "I can see it, why can't anyone else")

Of course he can see it. I'm sure that in the transfer window strenuous efforts were being made. However, they have come to nothing bar Yoshi, so what's your plan for NA miraculously to strengthen the defence?
After Man United I said we needed to strengthen our defence & was ripped into by certain posters.
So sorry my post was accurate as those people said this was only because of the teams we were playing.
In the championship it was obvious that the defence would not be good enough for the Premiership yet it hasn't been strengthened why not? who decides where we strengthen & who we buy?
You know what loosehead, you're absolutely right. You are indeed the only person who spotted that our defence is less than perfect.

Without telling us how clever you were or how NA or NC or anyone else got it wrong, give us the benefit of your magnificence and tell us what you would DO now. (You may not use a time machine as part of your answer.)

NA in my opinion has got what it takes but he should simply his tactics. 4-4-2 with no cut-adrift striker is an absolute must if you have a team like Saints. I suspect he will do that for the coming games. Saint just have to finish above the bottom 3 for this season and then push on and with the squad we are building that is clearly reaslistic but we are going to have to out-score most teams to win rather than be able to defend 1 goal leads....

You're destroying your own argument. Either Redknapp wouldn't be able to follow his usual "spend all the money the club hasn't got" or NC would have to break his rules that the club must be financially secure.

I'm not surprised that youngsters with limited experience of Saints playing in the top division are panicking, but saintmac ought to know better. It takes time for the team to get up to speed. The 1978 promoted team admittedly had 2 wins and 2 draws in their first five matches, but only one of those opposition teams ended up in the top ten. But then it was 3 straight losses, and 11 matches to the next win. Yet they ended up 14th in the division, with 8 other teams below them. The time to start worrying will be when we have failed to gain sufficient points from bottom half.teams.

It is difficult to accept losing after the successes we have experienced in the last 2-seasons...but be patient, the results will come.[/p][/quote]Well done Yorkie,sense again. I am quite surprised that Fox hasnt been getting a massive slamming again this week. One thing I do know is that we will not get another spanking like that again this season. Im not worried UP THE SAINTS. Come on Swindon. mack chinnon

Once again you're bleating about the unchangeable past.

Panic panic panic no way. we have had a ridiculously tough start and then only organisations as stupid as the FA and FIFA will schedule transfer deadine followed by international break.

( I dont want to see any Saints player feature for that shower of **** called Ingerlund anyway.)

The team will be different on Saturday, Nigel et al will have learnt the hard way.

IMHO the biggest problem is KD,s ball handing too many parries and in the Prem this is fatal.. Kev please learn to catch the firkin ball.

We have some players who are going to do well in this league. We also have some players who are going to struggle and will need replacing.
BUT.
While they play for my team,Saints, they will get my full support.
So will the manager!
Looking forward to the Villa game, when I expect my team to start to gain some points and move upward.
Above Liverpool would sound good !

In my opinion you should clap the players who, I'm sure, are putting in the best effort they can. Yes, you have a right to your opinion but the players surely also have a right to your support , regardless of whether you have a season ticket. The crowd isn't referred to as the 12th man for nothing.

I'm not accusing you of saying this but your attitude would condone booing when things aren't right. After all, people who boo have a right to an opinion as well.

Nobody likes to be on the end of a 6-1 drubbing but thankfully even with Kelvin Davies in goal that shouldn't happen again this season.
Lets forget the negatives and dwell on the positives.
Ramirez looked a class act.and Yoshida despite the scoreline looks useful.And the much maligned Danny Fox was the first player to score against the gunners in the prem this season.
Oviously both Nigel Adkins and the squad as a whole will be under intense pressure to perform next week against the Villa.We have lost 4 on the bounce, now we must win the next 4 on the spin or at least don't lose any of them.
i agree that old harry ratknapp is not the man to take over the mantle of team manager.he was pretty useless when he had the job a few seasons back..He and his then sidekick jim smith didn't have a clue how to work with the players he inherited.Despite him and mandaric getting off with their tax fraud case some of the things he came out with in the witness box did his credibility no good at all.no wonder the FA gave him the thumbs down for the england job.If cor blimey 'arry never got on with daniel levy can you see him getting on with NC.
Now i'm going to suggest something which won't happen but would be a worthwhile move in my book..As i have mentioned before i don't think that Adkins' coaching staff are really up to working in the premiership.Keep them on by all means but facilitate their work load by employing 'arry's old henchmen JOE JORDAN and KEVIN BOND.Both served the Saints well as players and they would bring a bit of experience to the backroom staff.
Finally to be the devils advocate if Nigel is given the elbow I think that NC may go down the continental route for a new manager.Rafa Benitez could be the one but i was interested to hear that big Phil Scolari got the boot last week.But whoever is the saints manager at the end of the season- and lets hope that it is Nigel because the club won't get a better PR man than him- let us hope that we finish at the very least 17th.

you want redkrapp back?
you dont care who or how, as long as we stay up?
my god where have you been for the last 10 years?
i want saints to stay up yes but i want a club run in the right way within its financial consrtaints by honorable people.
if that means dropping down for a season then bouncing back then so be it!
what i dont want is a club run like it was before, spending money we couldnt afford and changing manager every 5 months!
as for redkrapp, do you really want him back? think about that for a second.
ok redkrapp has left a trail of clubs in finacial ruin. he over spent in his first time with the fish and the second time he was manager there he spent £68.3 million only getting £20mill back! not that i care about the fish mind!, in the 1 season he spent here he brought in 8 players and sold 18, yes we got more money in than out but we were relegated that year and most of the players were sold after that though i think he sold beattie in the jan window. so we actually lost out financially. at spurs redkrapp spent £100 mill in 4 years and was only sacked because he was always asking for more and more to be spent, that and the fact that he wouldnt sign a new contract and only wanted to after not getting the England job. he came up against an owner and chairman who wouldnt give in to his constant requests for money, you see thats how he works he just buys and buys, mostly because he gets a bonus from it! now you may say that other chairmen should have said no to him, and yes they should, however this is a man who convinced a court that he is stupid and cant run his own affairs, he said he cant use a mobile or a computer and cant write properly. he has also been investigated for alleged bungs and after being arrested stated "the police have to arrest you to talk to you" no they dont harry!.
4 games into a season and you want to change the manager! what happens if the new manager losses the next 4? sack him and get another? how did we not buy right in the summer? please explain. if you say the defence as you will then dont forget that we got 2 new defenders in both with international experience , 1 of them at U21 level. do you know who else we tried to buy but failed? i dont (apart from buttner and butland) we could have been in for others who knows?

We can't add defensive players until January so we have to get the best out of what we have got, that also means getting the tactics right.

NA has made tactical errors in each game so the best thing is to do is to support him tactically and bring in a top experienced assistant for him.

Finding a way of keeping clean sheets or 1 goal per game is the only way we will survive in this division, not by conceeding 3 goals per game.

you want redkrapp back?
you dont care who or how, as long as we stay up?
my god where have you been for the last 10 years?
i want saints to stay up yes but i want a club run in the right way within its financial consrtaints by honorable people.
if that means dropping down for a season then bouncing back then so be it!
what i dont want is a club run like it was before, spending money we couldnt afford and changing manager every 5 months!
as for redkrapp, do you really want him back? think about that for a second.
ok redkrapp has left a trail of clubs in finacial ruin. he over spent in his first time with the fish and the second time he was manager there he spent £68.3 million only getting £20mill back! not that i care about the fish mind!, in the 1 season he spent here he brought in 8 players and sold 18, yes we got more money in than out but we were relegated that year and most of the players were sold after that though i think he sold beattie in the jan window. so we actually lost out financially. at spurs redkrapp spent £100 mill in 4 years and was only sacked because he was always asking for more and more to be spent, that and the fact that he wouldnt sign a new contract and only wanted to after not getting the England job. he came up against an owner and chairman who wouldnt give in to his constant requests for money, you see thats how he works he just buys and buys, mostly because he gets a bonus from it! now you may say that other chairmen should have said no to him, and yes they should, however this is a man who convinced a court that he is stupid and cant run his own affairs, he said he cant use a mobile or a computer and cant write properly. he has also been investigated for alleged bungs and after being arrested stated "the police have to arrest you to talk to you" no they dont harry!.
4 games into a season and you want to change the manager! what happens if the new manager losses the next 4? sack him and get another? how did we not buy right in the summer? please explain. if you say the defence as you will then dont forget that we got 2 new defenders in both with international experience , 1 of them at U21 level. do you know who else we tried to buy but failed? i dont (apart from buttner and butland) we could have been in for others who knows?
I certainly wouldn't want Redknapp back. But he wouldn't come to a club like Saints (now) because he has stated he won't join any club where the CEO has any input to player selection process in the transfer market. Other than agree the fee and the wages.

Clearly that is not the case at Saints. Nicola Cortese does have input. So don't panic Harry won't be back here.

Fans on here were saying all summer it is defenders we needed not expensive, virtually unknown wingers or 2nd best striker in championship. For the £19m we spent on them two we could have got a whole new defence. NA and NC have got it wrong pure and simple. Yes the prem league had it in for us with the games they set us to try and destroy our confidence from the start. But with a better defence we could have 4 points by now. Nightmare start.

Good post. I sympathise with your slight paranoia as well. Look at West Ham's opening fixtures, somewhat different. But their joint owners are in the "club", ours aren't and Nicola from what I have read has little time for the football establishment and is regarded by some chairmen/CEO's as being a "hot head".

Do you really think that NA/NC weren't after defenders?

Almost all of the negative posters on here seem to think they are the only ones to see that the defence needed boosting. Has it occurred to all of you that NA/NC might have been trying to sign some but didn't get them? I'm sure you are aware of that but you all seem to shout the same mantra. (You ignore Clyne and Maya-san as well, as a matter of course).

And one further point that may improve your lives. No-one has yet invented a time machine, so there's no way of going back to change what happened. Rather than whining about what should have happened, why not do your little bit and support the team we have? (You might want to try it in your real lives as well, arguing about the past is pointless, talk about the future instead)

Yes, it's not perfect but it's what we have, and nothing in the world can change that, so you might as well get behind them and show the team all the support you can.

I'm not calling for a change in management, but I do fear for Nigel. I would like everybody at the Villa game to get behind him and chant his name. Show him he is appreciated and wanted.

He needs the 12th man as much as the team do!

I fear, if he goes, we will get a European, sycophantic yes man as a replacement.

reality check 4 games into our first season back in the prem.
when the fixtures first come out i thought that we would have 3 points at this stage, i expected to be well beaten by the top 3 and to have beaten wigan.

so 4 games in and only 3 points off my expectations. 2 wins from mid table and the SAINTS having played fcuking brilliantly in 3 of the 4 games,

also we are still in the prem, will fufill our fixtures and will have my support next and every other season no matter what.
not every football fan has that luxury

However some of our own fans are not realistic with their expectations. Maybe we should all agree as to what constitutes success now and for the coming years so that we have a yard stick to measure by. I'm delighted to be in the Prem so quickly even if we go down use parachutes wisely and come back up. I think some would moan even if we established ourselves as a fifth place team that we should be in the Champions League and demand sackings!

People say we need defenders, I certainly agree. The club keeps its negotiatons quiet but didn't the Buttner deal become public? Was not the transfer fee and wages agreed? Did it not fall through due to a 'third party' making demands? Did he not score yesterday for Manure? Was he not voted MOTM yesterday?

Now I don't have a clue why it fell through. Maybe it was because Nicola wasn't going to be held to ransom? No problem if so, but stop blaming Nigel when you know nothing (like me) of the transfer dealings this summer. Maybe, just maybe he didn't have the final say.

Personally I'd be gob smacked if Nigel knocked on the Dons door and said: 'Hey boss, don't bother with those defenders don't need them, what we really really need is that Italian Del Piero and if you don't get him I'm off!'

Hey El Pompey: Thanks for that, can't say I disagree with your final sentence or two.

The thing I'd disagree with is who the whiners are.

They are a mix of:
1. Know-alls with 100% hindsight
2. People who don't post on here normally but who come out of the woodwork when things go badly
3. People who appear not to go to many matches (but they used to go to every game at the Dell) who should be made manager
4. Posters who were the only people to notice that we might need a defender
5. A few of your brethren back in Blighty

However, there are a few of us prepared to keep the faith. And I suspect that actually at the game on Saturday there'll be many, many, many more wanting to keep the faith with a great manager than wanting him to go.

It was obvious to many supporters even at the end of last season, that KD and the defence would not be up to the Premiership.
NC and has let the side and supporters down by not plugging these gaps in the transfer window.
Admittedly Saints have been associated with many big names but they have chosen to go elsewhere no doubt because of better money and prospects.
I think the root of the problem is that NC has deep pockets and short arms and isn't prepared to splash the kind of cash required to stay in the Premiership and NA is either unable or unwilling to stand up to him.
Ted Bates and LMcM were able to attract and keep world class players such as Paine, Channon, Ball, Shilton and Keegan, the latter when he was twice European player of the Year, all this on a 15,000 capacity at the Dell!
Before someone says wages have gone through the roof that is true but so has the Club's income so it's all relative.
I don't believe either Ted or Lawrie would have allowed Walcott or Oxo to leave and playing under the kind of leadership provided by Ted and Lawrie I don't believe they would have wanted to
It's all about experienced top level management learned the long hard way by the likes of Ted and Lawrie which the Saints lack.
At Arsenal Saints were dire, leaden footed, appeared to lack match fitness and Arsenal were a yard or two faster in every department,Saints were like lambs to the slaughter.
To those who cling to the hope that "our season starts next week against Villa " I say dream on, nothing will change unless under performing players are replaced
If NC digs deep and gives NA the tools he can succeed, as he is one of the best managers Saints have ever had.
Somehow I fear this won't happen and NA will become the scapegoat within a very short period of time and if that happens Saints will be a Premiership one season wonder.

I don't know what all the fuss is about.
Arsenal and Man U have both lost 6-1 in recent season's it happens. Arsenal can play some good football but what have they won in the last 5 years....nothing. Southampton will struggle and will have great relegation battles and are good enough to survive. Saints fans are just going to have to deal with it. Bring it on I say.

We've just come up so anyone expecting us to beat everyone is living in dreamland, and everyone who calls for NA head after losing against the top teams are bloody dickheads.

It's going to a long and hard season and we've had a baptism of fire. But we will work hard, learn, apply ourselves and we will be ok.

I have faith in the manager and faith in the team. Even after today.
Great comment. I have not bothered coming on here this weekend as I was not looking forward to reading the rubbish from the doom brigade about Atkins.

You are absolutely right with this post, it gives me hope that most saints fans have sense.

Gaston looked quality considering he has only had one training session with the team. I still think we will be ok.

sainthorse, I do know the rules regarding transfers although I'm not altogether sure NC does.
Try as I may I can't think of any other reason apart from wanting to hang on to his cash, why he never replaced over the hill KD and signed two good defenders in the transfer window when it was apparent last season where the main weaknesses lay.
Waiting until January may well prove too late, teams at the foot of the table at Christmas rarely survive.
If this happens, as it could do,--- (4 played, 4 lost including a home defeat to the mighty Wigan and 14 goals conceded)---- who do you think will accept the blame? -- NC -- not on your life --- he'll bomb out NA long before that and blame him for everything.
Who would you blame or would you be content to quietly accept it in your blinkered belief that NC can do no wrong?
It would certanly be wrong to blame fans like me who have the timerity to question NC's policies, after all we don't choose the team, sell players, buy players, decide tactics etc. that is down to NC and NA who is a good coach but in my opinion hasn't the clout to stand up to NC in the manner that LMcM would have done
All the time my season ticket money goes towards paying their wages I have every right to criticise.
LMcM and the late Ted Bates have forgotten more about about football than NC will ever know if he lives to be 110 and there is the rub --- NC is simply not up to Premiership management!!
Remember, around the turn of the year, you read it here first!!

It's so friggin obvious.

Remember, around the turn of the year, you read it here first!!
you know the rules? then why oh why do you keep saying we should replace players now? we cant!
you obviously live in the past with the constant referals to big mac and ted bates!
by the way its not NC`s cash is it!
and kelvin davies over the hill? hes only 35! brad friedel is 41! if you think kelv is not good enough then say so, i think the best keeper in the championship last year should be given a go this year, but thats my opinion.
NA hasnt the clout to stand up to NC? when we got adkins as manager NC tried to get him to quit at scunny, he wouldnt! he stood up to NC and made sure scunny got a propper compensation!
yes you can criticise i`ve never said you cant! but what you do is make assumptions based on no evidence and state them as facts! how do you know the working relationship between NC and NA? are you guessing?
you dont question NC`s policies, you cant question what you dont know, you again make assumptions on what you believe to be true!
you are right though NC is not a football man! but he is a good business man and has turned our club around! now after 2 promotions in 2 years you think he is the wrong person to run the club? thats up to you but given a choice between NC and ? i will take NC everyday!
if we sack Adkins who do you want to do the job in his place then?
again statements like
"I think the root of the problem is that NC has deep pockets and short arms and isn't prepared to splash the kind of cash required to stay in the Premiership and NA is either unable or unwilling to stand up to him." are just wrong! and based on what? NA spent near on £30mill this summer breaking our transfer record twice! god ive got de javu here!
ted bates and big mac never spent money like that, cause we never had it! do you know how much adkins had to spend? no i dont either, do you know who else we tried to sign? no nor do i! if we play poorly against villa and the next 3-4 games then yes i think adkins might be in trouble but i just dont know!
"Remember, around the turn of the year, you read it here first!!
well done you would rather be right than see saints have a winning run! me i would love to see us win a few games and go on a good run, we have the players to do so! but then i am a glass half full type of person, you, a glass nearly empty type though!
for the record i think Adkins got it wrong in the first half on sat, but made good changes in the second, though that was too late, but arse away was always going to be tough! so was manure and manc, wigan is another mater!

It would certanly be wrong to blame fans like me who have the timerity to question NC's policies, after all we don't choose the team, sell players, buy players, decide tactics etc. that is down to NC and NA who is a good coach but in my opinion hasn't the clout to stand up to NC in the manner that LMcM would have done
All the time my season ticket money goes towards paying their wages I have every right to criticise.
LMcM and the late Ted Bates have forgotten more about about football than NC will ever know if he lives to be 110 and there is the rub --- NC is simply not up to Premiership management!!
Remember, around the turn of the year, you read it here first!!
love walsall

Try as I may I can't think of any other reason apart from wanting to hang on to his cash, why he never replaced over the hill KD and signed two good defenders in the transfer window when it was apparent last season where the main weaknesses lay. Waiting until January may well prove too late, teams at the foot of the table at Christmas rarely survive.

Well if you just look at the scorers we only lost 4-3, LOL.

Bloody hard game to watch that. The first half was probably the poorest we played for a while. I know some will point out that we were playing the gooners at the Emirates and how good they are, but we sat way too deep and gave them all day to pick a pass. If we're going to play 4-5-1 when defending, we may as well put pressure on the ball and push up further. That will get the midfield closer to Rickie, or whoever is upfront too. NA knows how weak we are in the defensive and goalkeeping departments, hence, he's chosen this formation, which makes me wonder why he didn't strengthen those departments more. I don't want to say too much on the obvious defensive position we need fill as it's been discussed to death. I'm starting to worry about KD in goal more as the season has gone on. As well as poor distribution and poor catching, he has an extremely worrying tendency to parry shots and crosses back into the middle of the area.

OK, enough of the negative sh*t. I liked the way we played in the second half by pushing up further. Yoshida looks solid, doesn't just dive into tackles. Gaston looks like a bit of class. His movement opened things up for us second half, plus it looks like he not work shy either with a great bit of tracking back to stop a certain goal. I'm guessing Punch will be dropped so either Gaston or Adam will play on the right? Anyway, as far as the midfield and forwards go, we're golden. Also credit to Jose for his performance, I know many have banged on at how poor his defending is, myself included, but he did well against the Gooners.

One last thing. Hats off to Theo for not celebrating his goal. Showed a bit of class, doubt that skunt Oxlade-Chamberlain would have done the same.

Someone said 'our season starts next week. When is that then? after the Villa game maybe.
Premiership teams are starting to wisen up after a few games so it will be even tougher from now on in for the saints to get points, let alone get the win.
Saints will be under pressure now to win at home against Aston V but the away side can take full advantage by heaping more pressure on Adkins and his future at the club. Like most of us supporters we can turn on our managers when things are going pear shaped.
1-3

It's so friggin obvious.

It was all Guly's fault, wasn't it?
Bring Back Thomas, Perry and Wotton.. those were the days....loved the way they gave us such calamitous memories and plenty to moan about...

4 games in the prem and some may have forgotten the bumpy old journey.

On a good note I just watched Rickies Hat Trick against mk dons with that fantastic lob goal from 50yds.. what a journey... Oh I love Saints...

anyone who thought this kind of result wouldn't happen this season has just had a wake up call.

Survival is the target this season, nothing else. I will settle for the one spot above the relegation zone come the final whistle. Now is the time to get right behind the team and NA. sing your hearts out.

Wenger did his homework on us, exploiting our weakness on the flanks, Fox was as usual slow, out of position and ball-watching, and Clyne looked very nervous to me. However their jobs are made more difficult because Puncheon and Lallana don't drop back quick enough to form defensive cover. Playing 4-5-1 left RL isolated and he had no service at all in the first half. Better when 4-4-2 in 2nd but all the damage done by then.
Nice stadium but how can 57000 gooners make so little noise?

Immediately say thank you for your work in helping us get promoted but you have to go to the Goalie & Fonte.
Maybe Schmiechals son would cut mustard if he's still in the championship or look for a disgruntled Premiership quality Keeper & definitely replace Fonte.
I would not want Redknapp here he's C+ap & I feel Adkins deserves a chance but is he selecting the players to bring in?
With Lowe we had the problem where he chose the new players so I hope histories not repeating itself
YOU CANNOT SIGN PLAYERS OUTSIDE THE TRANSFER WINDOW!!!

Of course, if you happen to know some great players whose are magnificant but whose contracts have, for some reason, been allowed to lapse, please tell us all who they are.

Otherwise, sit down, shut up and support the team we have.
so why didn't we sign them before the window closed?
Maybe come to an arrangement of loaning a goalie & a couple of defenders until the window re-opens & then buy them?
I wonder if a struggling club would say take our Goalie on loan in exchange for their goalie on loan?

You're either

a) Stuck in the past, whining about what should have happened - "why didn't we sign them before the window closed?" ad nauseam

b) When forced to propose solutions, you have no idea at all what you are talking about - "Maybe come to an arrangement of loaning a goalie & a couple of defenders until the window re-opens & then buy them?"

Go back to rugby, where I hope you understand the rules a bit better.

Enough. I now give up.
