James Beattie wants Southampton to make it a St Mary's fortress

Daily Echo: James Beattie celebrates his Fulham hat-trick James Beattie celebrates his Fulham hat-trick

JAMES Beattie still has the ball at home – a reminder of the day he put three goals past one of the greatest keepers of the modern era.

It was ten years ago this month that the striker hit his one and only Saints hat-trick, in a 4-2 Premier League victory against Fulham at a windswept St Mary’s.

Even the distinguished presence of Edwin van der Sar in the visitors’ goal could do nothing to stop the forward breezing through the Cottagers’ back line that day.

Lee Clark’s early strike, via a deflection off Michael Svensson’s back, and Steed Malbranque’s emphatic finish, after some rather generous defending allowed a simple low cross to slip through to him, had put Fulham well in command.

No matter, though.

It took just two minutes for Saints to pull one back, Beattie firing a trademark penalty into the top corner after Alain Goma had handled.

The match was level by half-time, as Beattie cushioned a header past Van der Sar having latched onto the end of a Fabrice Fernandes cross.

“We were two down and the fans were giving us a bit of abuse,” recalled Beattie.

“But I scored a penalty and then we got it back to 2-2. Fernandes delivered a great ball to the back post and I headed it back across Van der Sar.

“We came out in the second half and played much better.”

Within ten minutes of the restart, Saints had the lead. Anders Svensson’s free-kick from the left touchline skidded off the top of a leaping Beattie’s head and flew past Van der Sar.

“Anders put in a freekick and I just glanced it into the far corner,” said Beattie. “Then Brett (Ormerod) scored the last one.”

The match proved to be a microcosm of Saints’ season, starting badly but finishing with a flourish.

One win in their first eight games had left Gordon Strachan’s men in the relegation zone.

But the Fulham success capped a three-match winning streak that lifted the team into mid-table.

It was also a second consecutive home victory – something a win over the London side on Sunday would mean for the current team.

The game finished with Beattie catching Antti Niemi’s goal-kick as the final whistle blew. The hattrick ball was safely tucked under his shirt and now has pride of place at his house.

“It was my first hattrick,” said Beattie. “I used to get quite a few braces, but it was my first hattrick.

“It was great and I’ve still got the ball. There’s a couple of messages from Oaksey (Matt Oakley) and Bridgey (Wayne Bridge) on it saying ‘First of many’ – but obviously it wasn’t!”

Beattie’s hat-trick helped spark not only his most successful season ever – he scored 24 times across all competitions – but also one of Saints’ most memorable campaigns, with the club reaching the FA Cup final and finishing eighth in the Premier League.

The 34-year-old, currently a free agent, is keeping his fingers crossed that a positive result for Nigel Adkins’ men against Fulham this weekend will help kickstart their own campaign.

“Hopefully it will,” said Beattie. “It’s a great opportunity and a big game for them, being at home.

“But Fulham have signed some good players and they will be hoping to get a result as well.

“The key to it is the home form. That is going to be massive, as Norwich and Swansea have shown. I think Swansea is one of the hardest places to go to in the country and get a result.

“They’ve got to try and emulate teams like that.”

Saints had no trouble with results at St Mary’s in the 2002/03 campaign. They lost just two of their 19 home fixtures in the Premier League that season.

“It was just a great time in my life down in Southampton,” said Beattie, looking back on it.

“Gordon Strachan was the best manager I have worked under. He was brilliant.

“I still speak to him now. He’s a top guy.”

Beattie added: “I remember leading the goal charts all the way through that season.

“Barclaycard were giving out a trophy for the first to ten, and the first to 20, which I got.

“Then I think Van Nistelrooy scored three in his second-tolast game and Henry got one to go ahead of me.

“We were playing at Maine Road on the final day and I was just shooting from everywhere trying to get a goal.”

Rather than Beattie, it is Rickie Lambert who is now shouldering the bulk of the goalscoring responsibilities at Saints.

A hat-trick for him against the Cottagers this weekend would do Adkins’ side the world of good.

“He’s done really well,” said Beattie of the man currently leading the Saints line. “He’s been prolific in League One and the Championship, and he’s carried that on and scored a few in the Premier League now.

“Hopefully he can keep that going. He just needs the service. He’s shown that, if you give him that, he’s a great finisher.

“I’ve met him on a couple of occasions and he’s a really nice lad. You want people like that to do well in the game.

“The fans love him and he just gives the whole club a lift. The rest of the lads really respond to him being on the pitch. Look at the Manchester City game. He came on and scored within a few minutes and straight away they kicked on and found another gear.”

That is something Saints will be hoping to find again on Sunday.

I would like to think we can make St Marys in to a Fortress but not with the deffence we have at present.
NA and NC should have got more deffenders in over the summer as I think must supports was saying that we needed deffenders we got two but this has been shown not to be right I just hope that by Jan we are in a possition to pick up some good deffenders COYR's win Sunday please

I think what we struggled to do was find these 'good' defenders. Most of the names mentioned over the summer were average and no better than what we have. Yoshida looked good against Villa and will be even better once he's settled properly and clyne is looking good aswell. Personally I think our problem with defending is our zonal marking from corners. It cost us a point against Man U and also against Man City. Against Villa we could have been 2-0 down if Benteke had scored that header from a corner.

I think it's absolutely clear we're deficient right across the back four. We're not just weak at set pieces we're too easily penetrated down the flanks. And the central defenders are too easy for opposition forwards to lose. I don't understand how we managed to sign so many forwards and midfielders but not defenders. They're out there but it looks like we let some slip from our fingers such as Buttner.

Personally I don't think so.

I agree with the sentiment that we need to make st Mary's a fortress, though, to do at all well from here on out. Looking forward to filament, that I'll be a good test for us.

In my opinion we wouldn't have signed J-Rod if we had signed Ramirez first. That £7 million would have been better spent on a decent centre back.

I also think that the early purchase of JRod looks like a mistake. If e had bought Ramirez first, we would have kept Sharp instead.JRod is a good striker but only really effective in Lambert's position.

Possibly true, but I think we'll all be grateful for j-rod when lambert pulls up with an injury. We needed insurance for our talisman, who (we shouldn't forget) carries the scars of brutal campaigns across four divisions.

Sharp seems to be struggling at Nottingham forest. Not sure what's up there but he's off form in a big way.

Actually been thinking the same thing myself, the biggest issue is that we havent practiced this formation at all and I think changing to it mid-season could prove costly.

My thoughts are that we should keep to how we play until Christmas, then we will have played a fairer representation of the league (not just the top 6 teams!). If we are still in trouble then we need to make some good purchases in January and see about the formation - try to shore it up.

I think that there is a simple ten step solution:

1. Develop a time machine (how hard can it be?), pop back to the transfer window and sign the best defenders in the world. After all, they were all looking for moves and the deals would have been simple and uncomplicated. To be honest, can't see why we didn't just get them at the time.

2. Sell Guly

3. Sell Fox

4. Sell Fonte... well, in short, sell anyone who's ever been criticised on here.

5. Execute Kelvin. It's all his fault.

6. Sell J-Rod; after six games we have enough information to know that he's useless. A £7M player never takes time to find his feet in a new team in a new division.

7. Get Hoddle in to run the team in an "advisory capacity"

8. Replace NA with old Saggy Chops

9. Sack NC, as he clearly knows nothing at all about anything and is impossible to negotiate with.

10. Find loads of fantastic defenders who, mysteriously, are out of contract despite being fantastic. Sign them up and make sure they are are all playing perfectly from day one.

Oh, hang on, it's an eleven point plan

11. Bionic legs for Rickie so he never needs to be substituted ever, no matter how tired the rest of his body may be.

Oh dear, twelve.

12. Play 8-1-1. That way we'll win every game

I think that there is a simple ten step solution:

1. Develop a time machine (how hard can it be?), pop back to the transfer window and sign the best defenders in the world. After all, they were all looking for moves and the deals would have been simple and uncomplicated. To be honest, can't see why we didn't just get them at the time.

2. Sell Guly

3. Sell Fox

4. Sell Fonte... well, in short, sell anyone who's ever been criticised on here.

5. Execute Kelvin. It's all his fault.

6. Sell J-Rod; after six games we have enough information to know that he's useless. A £7M player never takes time to find his feet in a new team in a new division.

7. Get Hoddle in to run the team in an "advisory capacity"

8. Replace NA with old Saggy Chops

9. Sack NC, as he clearly knows nothing at all about anything and is impossible to negotiate with.

10. Find loads of fantastic defenders who, mysteriously, are out of contract despite being fantastic. Sign them up and make sure they are are all playing perfectly from day one.

Oh, hang on, it's an eleven point plan

11. Bionic legs for Rickie so he never needs to be substituted ever, no matter how tired the rest of his body may be.

Oh dear, twelve.

12. Play 8-1-1. That way we'll win every game

Possibly true, but I think we'll all be grateful for j-rod when lambert pulls up with an injury. We needed insurance for our talisman, who (we shouldn't forget) carries the scars of brutal campaigns across four divisions.

Sharp seems to be struggling at Nottingham forest. Not sure what's up there but he's off form in a big way.
Wanted to add that JRod would come into his own if Ricky injured, but couldn't get the words 'Ricky' and 'injured' into the same sentence without feeling sick.

Hope Sharp settles in soon at Forest..top lad.

Actually been thinking the same thing myself, the biggest issue is that we havent practiced this formation at all and I think changing to it mid-season could prove costly.

My thoughts are that we should keep to how we play until Christmas, then we will have played a fairer representation of the league (not just the top 6 teams!). If we are still in trouble then we need to make some good purchases in January and see about the formation - try to shore it up.
The big little Strassie said the same. I hadn't considered it till then and I'm not altogether sure about 3 CBs and wing backs, but it might well suit the strengths and weaknesses of our current squad.

I know he does. He's been seen frequently around the south and from conversations in pubs etc he does care a great deal actually.

He's a really nice guy. Our defence however isn't just about the back four. It's about us being knocked off the ball too easily in midfield and not covering the threats out wide efficiently enough either. We know we are going to score goals from everywhere on the park. But the coaching staff need to focus on organisation when we don't have the ball. I think it's tough just blaming the back 4 only. Yes the left side full back situation is a concern but opponents have been coming through left right and centre!! However, I am confident the home form will be strong. And as the season progresses we will start to pick up points away.

Only12 more wins needed and a couple of draws to be safe. 15 Wins and 7 draws and we are top half.

Simples!

Looking forward to Sunday

I,m pretty sure NA had plans to start rebuilding at the back but I guess some deals didnt come off.

But after a baptism of fire against the 4 of the top teams 3 which have been away I am sure that starting Sunday we will see a change of fortune.

Lallana Lambert Ramirez (Cork will) Scnides ...we have some class players who have already proved they can deliver in the Prem now its up to the rest of them to step up and deliver and in Fontes case concentrate for 95minutes.

Does anyone know if Berbatov has recovered from his injury because he is the one fulham player we really have to be wary of on Sunday
Word was he’s going to be out for 2 weeks with a hip injury and didn’t play last 2 so chances are he will be fit. Don’t underestimate Petric, lethal finisher as well.
Andy Carroll came on as sub this weekend back from his hamstring injury so he will be ready to go against us next week.

Personally, I’d rather see us play teams with all their star players in, that’s after all what it is all about.

I hope Boruc pays in goal on Sunday, Gazzaniga was a bundle of nerves against Everton, showing his youth and inexperience and unsettling the defence.
Any defence, especially a poor one, needs a good goalkeeper, Saints haven't fielded one so far this season, hopefully Boruc will do the business and bring some stability.
I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.

I think what we struggled to do was find these 'good' defenders. Most of the names mentioned over the summer were average and no better than what we have. Yoshida looked good against Villa and will be even better once he's settled properly and clyne is looking good aswell. Personally I think our problem with defending is our zonal marking from corners. It cost us a point against Man U and also against Man City. Against Villa we could have been 2-0 down if Benteke had scored that header from a corner.
I think it's absolutely clear we're deficient right across the back four. We're not just weak at set pieces we're too easily penetrated down the flanks. And the central defenders are too easy for opposition forwards to lose. I don't understand how we managed to sign so many forwards and midfielders but not defenders. They're out there but it looks like we let some slip from our fingers such as Buttner.
This time I would take ARRY BACK now. Not so sure about leGod

Foxy? What, the fact that he isn't fit/good enough to play do you mean? Or do you mean that the Left Back position is our major downfall? I think we have more problems than just one individual being the sum total of what is going wrong don't you? I lay the blame on the constant negativity of a minority of so called supporters.
yes, yes, yes. I hope boruc will improve things, and i live in faith he will. We'd have more points on the board if Buttner was LB IMO.

"Although i did enjoy laughing Danny Fox's face as he walked past and stood with the fans, hopefully Nigel has realised he is a useless peice of S**T and we wont see him in a saints shirt again."!!!
i think he has a real problem with fox as he posts carp about him in nearly every thread.

I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
Hoddle? Hoddle? Rings a bell (bit like the Slashalike librarian) let me see...
Oh, I remember, the metropolis answer to David Icke, the bloke that got the sack the day after Gordon's Saints won at White Spud Lane.
If we were taking anyone from our chequered past I'd have Wee Gordon's input anytime over your spiritual leader Tebourba, now why don't you go to Spain where he mainly trains before more people complains.

Does anyone remember that toy shop called Beatties? It was near Debenhams and sold remote controlled cars and stuff. It was the absolute tits.
Absolutely !! It also had a branch in Chandler's Ford. Did it go bust or was just sold up ? Lovely shop.

In recent years so many shops have disappeared. Woolworths went bust Whittards are closing shops, Clintons cards are shutting down, Game has disappeared, Pastimes too.

How long before this is all attributed to NC/NA .. it can't possibly be a coincidence.

... and what was the point of this story ? Beattie was good but he's long gone ... and frankly this was just a nostalgic ramble.

Oh well ..
Why oh why oh why did Guly sanction the closure of Stone-Dri, Shirt King, Henrys, Jean Junction, Harry Fenton Carrefour, The Mike Channon Sports Shops, Toomers, Wimpy, Fortes, C&A, Lord Louis, Doc Marten Shop, Olivers, Bus station, Gaumont, Top Rank, Floating Bridge, John Collier, The Zoo, Beer Kellar, Fridays and the Saints supporters Club-answer me that?

I hope Boruc pays in goal on Sunday, Gazzaniga was a bundle of nerves against Everton, showing his youth and inexperience and unsettling the defence.
Any defence, especially a poor one, needs a good goalkeeper, Saints haven't fielded one so far this season, hopefully Boruc will do the business and bring some stability.
I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
Hoddle? Hoddle? Rings a bell (bit like the Slashalike librarian) let me see...
Oh, I remember, the metropolis answer to David Icke, the bloke that got the sack the day after Gordon's Saints won at White Spud Lane.
If we were taking anyone from our chequered past I'd have Wee Gordon's input anytime over your spiritual leader Tebourba, now why don't you go to Spain where he mainly trains before more people complains.
Come on Eileen, give it a rest, Diamond Lights have been switched off for ever. There aint no way back for Glenda
Hoddle blew his career with the shitte he spouted as England manager. He was given a chance to rebuild by Lowe and then paid us back by dumping from a great height. Also team motivation wasn't exactly a strength. Ask Beattie.

Us bring back Hoddle would be as likely as the skunts bringing back Chainrai....

We have the players we have and can't change that until Christmas.
We can't employ new players so we have to employ new tactics.
If we don't and the next 6 games are like our last 6, Saints will be down and out, NC will sack NA and Saints will be in turmoil.
There's no one at St Mary's with PL experience.
All I am suggesting, instead of just hoping and praying things will change is that NC brings someone in with PL experience to assist NA.
NA ihas fund himself in totally different ball game in the PL and hasn't the experience to turn things around on his own, that's not just my view, look at the many other posters criticising his team selections and substitiutions.
It needn't be Hoddle, I just recall he built the best defence Saints have ever had.
At least I'm suggesting something positive, if things don't change then we can only assume that NC and NA are happy with the current situation.
Maybe they are kneeling on their prayer mats as I write!

In recent years so many shops have disappeared. Woolworths went bust Whittards are closing shops, Clintons cards are shutting down, Game has disappeared, Pastimes too.

How long before this is all attributed to NC/NA .. it can't possibly be a coincidence.

... and what was the point of this story ? Beattie was good but he's long gone ... and frankly this was just a nostalgic ramble.

Why oh why oh why did Guly sanction the closure of Stone-Dri, Shirt King, Henrys, Jean Junction, Harry Fenton Carrefour, The Mike Channon Sports Shops, Toomers, Wimpy, Fortes, C&A, Lord Louis, Doc Marten Shop, Olivers, Bus station, Gaumont, Top Rank, Floating Bridge, John Collier, The Zoo, Beer Kellar, Fridays and the Saints supporters Club-answer me that?
It was a general store and they wouldn't let Guly buy anything specific.

I remember walking from Weston over to the floating bridge.From there to the NEW baths, the bus fare was used on Chipmunk Bovril crisps.(Probably the only place in the world where they were sold.)Long walk each way but the crisps were worth it.
Happy days.

I think that there is a simple ten step solution:

1. Develop a time machine (how hard can it be?), pop back to the transfer window and sign the best defenders in the world. After all, they were all looking for moves and the deals would have been simple and uncomplicated. To be honest, can't see why we didn't just get them at the time.

2. Sell Guly

3. Sell Fox

4. Sell Fonte... well, in short, sell anyone who's ever been criticised on here.

5. Execute Kelvin. It's all his fault.

6. Sell J-Rod; after six games we have enough information to know that he's useless. A £7M player never takes time to find his feet in a new team in a new division.

7. Get Hoddle in to run the team in an "advisory capacity"

8. Replace NA with old Saggy Chops

9. Sack NC, as he clearly knows nothing at all about anything and is impossible to negotiate with.

10. Find loads of fantastic defenders who, mysteriously, are out of contract despite being fantastic. Sign them up and make sure they are are all playing perfectly from day one.

Oh, hang on, it's an eleven point plan

11. Bionic legs for Rickie so he never needs to be substituted ever, no matter how tired the rest of his body may be.

Oh dear, twelve.

12. Play 8-1-1. That way we'll win every game
I think this just about covers everything. Well said sir! People should stick to supporting the team rather than being keyboard managers!

I'm a A licence coach and own my own coaching company but I never come on here spouting tactical crap! I'll leave that to the guy who is more qualified and experienced than all if us put together.

He has got us back to back promotions playing the game in style and if that style means we go down this season then so be it.

The alternative is to play the type of football that Stoke and West Ham do and I know what I'd prefer!

Up the Saints!

He said..... Swansea started a 5 year plan with spanish bloke who's name I forget(Wigan manager) and he was followed by Sousa who was followed by Rodgers and they all played the game the same way.
That plan has finally borne fruit and now current manager is still playing to the same guidelines and everyone thinks it happened overnight.
Saints have embarked on a similar scheme and are 3 years in to it and have just had their first hiccup .
This immediately brings out the doomngloomtebourba telling us to get Hoddle in.
He did not have our best ever defence.
We were 11th when he joined, we were 11th when he left.
Big Lawrie was the only manager who employed a sweeper, Reuben Agboola, and was crucified when he first used it. We finished 2nd!
So the story is.......patience.
And theborer is a tw4t !
you read it hear first...several times.
bit of a meander I know!

When Beatts played for us he was a legend, when he left he was an ex legend.
Truth is quite a few people have had drinks with him and he always says that he loved it here and it was probably the best time of his career.
The only problem with that is that most of these tales were based around drinking in a bar with him and he still does it!!!
Proper old school !

We can't employ new players so we have to employ new tactics.
If we don't and the next 6 games are like our last 6, Saints will be down and out, NC will sack NA and Saints will be in turmoil.
There's no one at St Mary's with PL experience.
All I am suggesting, instead of just hoping and praying things will change is that NC brings someone in with PL experience to assist NA.
NA ihas fund himself in totally different ball game in the PL and hasn't the experience to turn things around on his own, that's not just my view, look at the many other posters criticising his team selections and substitiutions.
It needn't be Hoddle, I just recall he built the best defence Saints have ever had.
At least I'm suggesting something positive, if things don't change then we can only assume that NC and NA are happy with the current situation.
Maybe they are kneeling on their prayer mats as I write!

to be fair you have a couple of good points. NA does need more advisors, ironically one of those is JP !! hence why it dawned on NC not to let handbags-at-5-paces get in the way of common sense...but the answer is not a magic wand that produces a "big" manager to replace NA... he has had to rebuild a squad and learn to cope with the Prem .... the task was/is HUGE... So I agree he needs help, that is obvious because yes some of his tactical decisions have been short-sighted.... but then again, lets take a step back and look at the strategic plan, this year we simply need to stay up so the mission is just peg above the three worse teams... NC/NA are more than capable of steering us into the final phaze of the grand plan, from season 2013/14 and onwards.

I think that there is a simple ten step solution:

1. Develop a time machine (how hard can it be?), pop back to the transfer window and sign the best defenders in the world. After all, they were all looking for moves and the deals would have been simple and uncomplicated. To be honest, can't see why we didn't just get them at the time.

2. Sell Guly

3. Sell Fox

4. Sell Fonte... well, in short, sell anyone who's ever been criticised on here.

5. Execute Kelvin. It's all his fault.

6. Sell J-Rod; after six games we have enough information to know that he's useless. A £7M player never takes time to find his feet in a new team in a new division.

7. Get Hoddle in to run the team in an "advisory capacity"

8. Replace NA with old Saggy Chops

9. Sack NC, as he clearly knows nothing at all about anything and is impossible to negotiate with.

10. Find loads of fantastic defenders who, mysteriously, are out of contract despite being fantastic. Sign them up and make sure they are are all playing perfectly from day one.

Oh, hang on, it's an eleven point plan

11. Bionic legs for Rickie so he never needs to be substituted ever, no matter how tired the rest of his body may be.

Oh dear, twelve.

12. Play 8-1-1. That way we'll win every game
The answer is within this post,,, genius!

The idea that Hoddle comes in to 'advise' NA is plain daft. If we don't improve nothing is gained and if we do there will then be a minority pushing for him to replace NA as manager saying he has shown he is better! It's a lose lose situation.

NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.

The idea that Hoddle comes in to 'advise' NA is plain daft. If we don't improve nothing is gained and if we do there will then be a minority pushing for him to replace NA as manager saying he has shown he is better! It's a lose lose situation.
I'd be happy if anyone came in and won games.

he was a selfish ar5ehole who only had himself at heart. not one shred of him was a team player. The biggest disgrace was his performances once he clearly wanted out, he could have given a sh**...... not sure what games you were watching to think so highly of him..... There are not many players who I can think of who treated this club so shoddily,,,, Redknapp junior for taking the money whilst knowingly half crippled, Rednapp senior for being a shyt3, and there is Beattie in his big white sportscar....
i met him once in town , tbh i thought he was a bit of a knob .
I was at a charity bash once and had the "honour" of his wisdom for a few minutes... couple that with watching him walk about the pitch for 5 games once he said he wanted out.... knob is pretty much it.... Funniest "bash" story tho has to be a party at chilworth I was at about 20 years ago where all the saints players were there eating fine food ( closed season ) and I sat on a bench next to Matty for 30 minutes and all he ate was sausages with loads of ketchup.... he was a class act !! totally ignored all the expensive canapes.....but complimented the host on the sausages.... a few of the players were acting liek knobs that evening but Matty was class. Quiet, no ego, just appreciated the sausages.......

I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
tebourba, will you stop using words like "us" in your posts.
your a skunt and we all know it.
and hoddle dosen't know saints as you put it. we have a completely different set to the one hoddle knew, and deserted when spurs came calling

or are you eileen drewery in disguise, old glens spiritual advisor and agony aunt
perhaps saints fans should be asking you for advice on a personal level.

so come on boys, let tebourba solve your personal problems while he solves all our tactical problems
If Hoddle did come back all the "positive" posters would soon back him. You're like me Tebourba passionate and want Saints to do well. I'll be there Sunday cheering them on as usual
well. there you are then. tebourba and thomasupiself
one and the same person.

That's not a very *positive" thing to say about him. He was with his wife and kids the day I met him and took time with me and my kids to chat and also praise Billy Sharp who had just scored his first goal for us, and happens to be a close friend of his.

Thanks Robbo and the Horse, THE SUN bingo. Just when I thought my mind was clear, Robbo has to put another ex Woolston pub into my inquisitive brain. I remember as a kid passing it on the way to the Floating Bridge (on the left), damned if I can think of the name. I seem to remember my old man saying he saw the Who play there before they were famous. Feel free to name it and myth bust him or back him up you oldies.
Try the Cliff hotel .
Bingo
The Cliff that's it. Surely your Dad would have seen the Shadows play there not the Who! My Auntie used to live in Woolston so up to school age I would be dragged along to foreign lands on the floatie. People remembering pubs, but what about all the Cinemas, The Woolston(fleapit), The Classic, the ABC, Odeon,Gaumont, Rialto, Regent and Atherley. That was in the sixties when I was a lad, those a bit older will remember many more, Saturday morning flicks were the highlight of the week. Just to think Guly and Fox were responsible for closing all of those as well.
Yep, and the Sun opened very early for the dock workers and tugboat skippers...my brother in law used to get pie eyed before his shift, then they would have a competition to see who could make the best stew on the tug..pi$$ed..imagine elf and safety today..cor what laffs.
elf and safety.
Can you imagine what they would have made on the Lido!
Dont forget the Wig and Pen by the old Echo building.Only opened during the day.
Yep, used by the solicitors and lawyers who abounded around the above bar high street and sandwiched between western esplanade well the road above actually..what is or was that called ran parallel to above bar high st.

He did more good than harm for us, so I don't understand some individuals being so anti. Once a Saint always a Saint, he is making positive thoughts, so should the rest of you.
he was a selfish ar5ehole who only had himself at heart. not one shred of him was a team player. The biggest disgrace was his performances once he clearly wanted out, he could have given a sh**...... not sure what games you were watching to think so highly of him..... There are not many players who I can think of who treated this club so shoddily,,,, Redknapp junior for taking the money whilst knowingly half crippled, Rednapp senior for being a shyt3, and there is Beattie in his big white sportscar....
i met him once in town , tbh i thought he was a bit of a knob .
That's not a very *positive" thing to say about him. He was with his wife and kids the day I met him and took time with me and my kids to chat and also praise Billy Sharp who had just scored his first goal for us, and happens to be a close friend of his.
so ? ....... i was talking about when I met him .

I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
tebourba, will you stop using words like "us" in your posts.
your a skunt and we all know it.
and hoddle dosen't know saints as you put it. we have a completely different set to the one hoddle knew, and deserted when spurs came calling

or are you eileen drewery in disguise, old glens spiritual advisor and agony aunt
perhaps saints fans should be asking you for advice on a personal level.

so come on boys, let tebourba solve your personal problems while he solves all our tactical problems
If Hoddle did come back all the "positive" posters would soon back him. You're like me Tebourba passionate and want Saints to do well. I'll be there Sunday cheering them on as usual
pull the other one playmate .
Slug, I told you I only deal with facts and I will!! be there Sunday.
yeah yeah .
Yes I will. Doubt very much you "positive" posters will be.
so you doubt wether positive posters from here go to sms then ............. i doubt that you've ever been there (just for the record) ......... season ticket holder my @rse .

ah yes , its all different now he is "older and wiser"... but sorry many saints fans think of him as they last saw him on the pitch.... ie , not giving a sh1*. Good luck to him now, I hope all is well but boy was I glad to see him leave Saints, much like our Caribbean friend who went to Sunderland...

I'd be happy if anyone came in and won games.
We all want to win games but the reality would be speculation and rumour which would undermine the team, supporters and have a negative impact.

Whether you like NA or not there is no doubt he has achieved a unity and spirit amongst the team that we haven't seen for a very long time and in any organisation that is a massive benefit.

You knock him for not signing defenders. Well we know we agreed transfer fee and wages with Buttner. We know he said he wanted to come here. We know his chairman said we behaved impeccibly. Maybe just maybe NC pulled out over the bad publicity over the '3rd party' and maybe just maybe NA had no say whatsoever about it.

for the record, despite the assumed many temptations to the contrary, 95% of Saints footballers I have spoked to over the last 30 years have been very nice, polite and accomodating people.... stark contrast to some of the c0cks I have had the misfortune to meet from other "bigger" clubs.. So I guess with Saints, the kn0bs stick out more than with other clubs....

I totally agree, I don't think Adkins has any say on what players we sign.

I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
tebourba, will you stop using words like "us" in your posts.
your a skunt and we all know it.
and hoddle dosen't know saints as you put it. we have a completely different set to the one hoddle knew, and deserted when spurs came calling

or are you eileen drewery in disguise, old glens spiritual advisor and agony aunt
perhaps saints fans should be asking you for advice on a personal level.

so come on boys, let tebourba solve your personal problems while he solves all our tactical problems
If Hoddle did come back all the "positive" posters would soon back him. You're like me Tebourba passionate and want Saints to do well. I'll be there Sunday cheering them on as usual
pull the other one playmate .
Slug, I told you I only deal with facts and I will!! be there Sunday.
yeah yeah .
Yes I will. Doubt very much you "positive" posters will be.
so you doubt wether positive posters from here go to sms then ............. i doubt that you've ever been there (just for the record) ......... season ticket holder my @rse .
No I think if you actually went, you'd be more passionate, like me. I'm not happy with the way Adkins keeps changing the team about. He has done well but still can't understand why Puncheon didn't play at Everton.
yeah yeah .

We all want to win games but the reality would be speculation and rumour which would undermine the team, supporters and have a negative impact.

Whether you like NA or not there is no doubt he has achieved a unity and spirit amongst the team that we haven't seen for a very long time and in any organisation that is a massive benefit.

You knock him for not signing defenders. Well we know we agreed transfer fee and wages with Buttner. We know he said he wanted to come here. We know his chairman said we behaved impeccibly.

the jungle drums I heard was that Saints have not been lazy in trying to find defender(s)... NC did the right thing over Buttner. Why are there "3rd" parties in football anyway !? Wasn't slavery outlawed over a century ago !?

I'd be happy if anyone came in and won games.
We all want to win games but the reality would be speculation and rumour which would undermine the team, supporters and have a negative impact.

Whether you like NA or not there is no doubt he has achieved a unity and spirit amongst the team that we haven't seen for a very long time and in any organisation that is a massive benefit.

You knock him for not signing defenders. Well we know we agreed transfer fee and wages with Buttner. We know he said he wanted to come here. We know his chairman said we behaved impeccibly. Maybe just maybe NC pulled out over the bad publicity over the '3rd party' and maybe just maybe NA had no say whatsoever about it.
I totally agree, I don't think Adkins has any say on what players we sign.
neither do we/you
whats your point
I think Cortese picks the team and what players we buy. Remember something similar happening before and look where we ended up.
oh ye

Not under Lowe.

So maybe just maybe he was desperate to strengthen the back four. Maybe he wasn't demanding we sign Del Piero. He has to work with what he's got. Stop slagging him off for that. He experimented with Jay Rod last week and if he hadn't have missed a couple of sitters it could have come off. As it was Puncheon supplying Lambo may have been better. Also no Morgan didn't help.

yeh I have also seem him in "knob" mode, his business was down the road from your local in North Bad for a while.... I know he was the "big I am" sometimes but my dealings with him were always with a genuine guy, he was good to his staff and a great guy to do business with, he is doing well in real-estate in the States now and got a lot of help setting that up from Brad Freidel a good friend of his.... His wife is lovely, not your typical vacuous "wag" , really nice and really switched on, she was hands-on with his business affairs... very nice family...

A few Saints players have frequented my local on a semi-regular basis. Jimmy Case (legend), Jason Dodd (proper unassuming family bloke), Simon Charlton (decent guy...had a tough time at Saints). I guess I met Barry Venison during a particular "arrogant" phase of his life.

I think what we struggled to do was find these 'good' defenders. Most of the names mentioned over the summer were average and no better than what we have. Yoshida looked good against Villa and will be even better once he's settled properly and clyne is looking good aswell. Personally I think our problem with defending is our zonal marking from corners. It cost us a point against Man U and also against Man City. Against Villa we could have been 2-0 down if Benteke had scored that header from a corner.
I think it's absolutely clear we're deficient right across the back four. We're not just weak at set pieces we're too easily penetrated down the flanks. And the central defenders are too easy for opposition forwards to lose. I don't understand how we managed to sign so many forwards and midfielders but not defenders. They're out there but it looks like we let some slip from our fingers such as Buttner.
He didn't slip through our fingers! I think nearly all players would prefer to go to Man Utd so there was nothing Saints could have done! You don't know what happened anyway!

And it pains me to say it, because he was a LEGEND on the pitch; but Jimmy Case would provide excellent camouflage for rage c0cks you refer to.

I hope Boruc pays in goal on Sunday, Gazzaniga was a bundle of nerves against Everton, showing his youth and inexperience and unsettling the defence.
Any defence, especially a poor one, needs a good goalkeeper, Saints haven't fielded one so far this season, hopefully Boruc will do the business and bring some stability.
I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window.
The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience.
NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract.
To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA.
Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change.
If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL.
NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.
tebourba, will you stop using words like "us" in your posts.
your a skunt and we all know it.
and hoddle dosen't know saints as you put it. we have a completely different set to the one hoddle knew, and deserted when spurs came calling

or are you eileen drewery in disguise, old glens spiritual advisor and agony aunt
perhaps saints fans should be asking you for advice on a personal level.

so come on boys, let tebourba solve your personal problems while he solves all our tactical problems
If Hoddle did come back all the "positive" posters would soon back him. You're like me Tebourba passionate and want Saints to do well. I'll be there Sunday cheering them on as usual
pull the other one playmate .
Slug, I told you I only deal with facts and I will!! be there Sunday.
yeah yeah .
Yes I will. Doubt very much you "positive" posters will be.
so you doubt wether positive posters from here go to sms then ............. i doubt that you've ever been there (just for the record) ......... season ticket holder my @rse .
No I think if you actually went, you'd be more passionate, like me. I'm not happy with the way Adkins keeps changing the team about. He has done well but still can't understand why Puncheon didn't play at Everton.
What a ridiculous argument; if you're positive you're not passionate. Utter, utter, tripe.

You might or might not be a supporter (and I don't care either way) but you're a very deliberate wind up merchant.

Banging on incessantly on the same two points "Puncheon at Everton" and "Hoddle" is the work of a wind-up merchant, not someone who cares.

Do you have any real friends? I bet you don't have many sitting near you at the ground if you're this tediously negative when you're there. You are so BORING.

Any defence, especially a poor one, needs a good goalkeeper, Saints haven't fielded one so far this season, hopefully Boruc will do the business and bring some stability. I say again, we have the players we have and that won't change until the next transfer window. The Premier League is the toughest in the world and there is no one in the coaching squad at St Mary's with Premier League experience. NA needs help from a coach with PL experience, Hoddle is a master tactician, Saints had their best defence ever under him, he knows the Saints and should be appointed as NA's adviser under a temporary contract. To my mind that will bring the best out of the players we have and will take some of the pressure off NA. Surely it would be a positive step much better than doing nothing, just hoping things will change. If nothing is done and results don't improve, NC will sack NA before Christmas, which would be a disaster for the Club, NA has the ability to be the finest manager Saints have ever had, he just needs some short term, experienced help NOW to find his feet in the PL. NA is a big enough man to recognise he needs help and I'm sure he would welcome someone like Glenn at his side.[/p][/quote]tebourba, will you stop using words like "us" in your posts. your a skunt and we all know it. and hoddle dosen't know saints as you put it. we have a completely different set to the one hoddle knew, and deserted when spurs came calling or are you eileen drewery in disguise, old glens spiritual advisor and agony aunt perhaps saints fans should be asking you for advice on a personal level. so come on boys, let tebourba solve your personal problems while he solves all our tactical problems[/p][/quote]If Hoddle did come back all the "positive" posters would soon back him. You're like me Tebourba passionate and want Saints to do well. I'll be there Sunday cheering them on as usual[/p][/quote]pull the other one playmate .[/p][/quote]Slug, I told you I only deal with facts and I will!! be there Sunday.[/p][/quote]yeah yeah .[/p][/quote]Yes I will.

Well I dont know anyone here but think that TEBOURBA is entitled to have an opinion. Cant say I agree with Hoddle coming in though I cant stand the bloke. Never had Saints interests at herat the first time!!

Even more reason for Saints to beat Fulham.
