Southampton looking to extend home record against Fulham

Daily Echo: Nigel Adkins Nigel Adkins

Saints are hoping to extend one of their finest home records when they take on Fulham at St Mary’s on Sunday.

Nigel Adkins’ team are desperate for another home victory to go alongside their 4-1 demolition of Aston Villa as they aim to go into the next international break with six points on the board.

To do that they have to get past Martin Jol’s Fulham side – but the omens are very good.

Saints have amassed a quite remarkable home record against the Cottagers down the years, losing just once in 27 league meetings on the south coast – and that in the pre-war era.

It was 1935 the last time Fulham actually beat Saints on their own patch and Adkins and his team will certainly be aiming to extend that run still further.

An even better omen for the three points is that of the 27 meetings, Saints have actually won 19 and drawn just seven.

As he prepares for the game Adkins has some major decisions to make with his team.

He tinkered with the side that defeated Villa and saw the team lose 3-1 at Everton last weekend.

Among his biggest dilemmas is whether to stick with Paulo Gazzaniga in goal, draft in new signing Artur Boruc or recall Kelvin Davis.

In the centre half department Adkins partnered Maya Yoshida with Jose Fonte at Goodison Park but Jos Hooiveld is now considered fully fit and is hoping for a recall.

In the left back slot Danny Fox should be available but at Everton it was Nathaniel Clyne moved across the back line with Frazer Richardson at right back.

Jason Puncheon is also pushing for a recall after being left out at Everton despite some impressive recent displays.

Morgan Schneiderlin still appears unlikely to be fit for the game after injuring his knee ligaments while Jack Cork also remains on the sidelines.

Well done Echo - can just see Martin Jol cutting out this headline and using it to motivate his side, without referring to the rest of the article. Typical Echo sensationalist headline to try and sell more copy, and to hell with the consequences

Time to fill our boots and get some points now, it's ok being patronisingly known as a good attacking team, we need to start to smash a few in like we did against Villa in the second half!

I really don't think we can blame the Echo if we lose. Fox, Kelv and Guly of course but not the Echo!

Anyway off shooting for the day, have a good one all.

Are skunts a protected species?

Cos Martin Jol is an avid Echo reader isnt he? Of course a local rag is going to be positive about its home side, thats hardly going to motivate the away team more.
They will know the stats, and Jol will use the facts to motivate anyway.
Good positive piece Echo, and I'm confident after we bed ourselves into the game we will command it and get what we need.

It will be interesting to see how many fans Fulham take with them - they've always struck me as one of those teams for people who live in affluent West London and like to go to football to show how 'authentic' they are, but wouldn't dream of leaving the delis on the Kings Road if their team were playing away.

Maybe this is why their away record is so rubbish?

Does anyone know if they still have a neutral end at their ground I always found this rather strange on previous visits to the cottage. Can't remember how many they have brought down to SMS in the past.

It's meant to be a thoroughly bloody nice place to go and watch football. Mainly because it's full of Hugh Grant and Lily Allen and their mates and the pies at half time come from Harrods. O, and there's a giant statue of Michael Jackson there.

Thinking about it, it sounds amazing. I'm there.

I must concur. I have always found the whole fulham set up to be rather odd in that respect. I think they have a small section of hard core fans that follow them to away games. But overall I think your assessment of them is quite right.

Great news another 3 points then. Why did I bother with the season ticket? It is a good job history always repeats itself then, no clean white paper tactical stuff. Oh just had a thought... Man City won the prem as did Chelsea... me now thinks history does not matter, I have been duped by those nice guys down at city desk.

Fulham have sold just over 2,000 tickets for the game.

I remember when Fulham last played at SMS back in 2005.
During that game, just into the 2nd half, when Jamie Redknapp was blatantly fouled and the ref didnt give anything.

From that incident, Fulham gained possession and went on to score their 3rd goal.

It turned out to be 2points 'lost' in our relegation fight.

they start off in the summer all loud and seem to be everywhere, but then as summer turns to autumn there seems to be fewer and fewer of them around getting quieter and quieter. infact it looks as though its only the young and immature of the species that do not go into hibernation.

We don't have to restrict our choice to someone actually from the area (Fulham didn't, which is why it's such genius).

We should try and out-random them by going for someone like Chad Kroeger from Nickelback or Alf Fisher from Home & Away. It would blow their minds.

Let's hope we can get the right result , clean sheet would be nice but let's be honest have been watching the saints since the early 70s and we never do anything the easy way !!! If you want that go and support Chelsea or man utd ? We definitely have to tighten up the system especially away from home , not sure that the we will score more goals than the opposition way is going to keep us up , have to grind out the odd 1-0 but think it's harsh to blame just the goalkeeper and defence .

Definitely missed spiderman last game , my team for tomorrow

Richardson Yoshida jos. Clyne

We definitely have to tighten up the system especially away from home , not sure that the we will score more goals than the opposition way is going to keep us up , have to grind out the odd 1-0 but think it's harsh to blame just the goalkeeper and defence . Definitely missed spiderman last game , my team for tomorrow Boruc Richardson Yoshida jos. Clyne Spiderman Davis Gaston. Lallana punch Rickie Scarborosaint

Why do I keep reading the name of Fox as a good defender ? He was okay for the Championship (just about) but is hopelessly lost in the Premier League.
Loves to "ball watch", unable to get back into position, and my beloved Saints are going to lose a lot more games if he remains in the team. AND...CLYNE SHOULD STAY ON THE RIGHT !!!
Make these new guys earn the money they are being paid to play to their full potential. Fox should be thanked for his work for us in the Championship...but the Premier League is "A Bridge Too Far"

We don't have to restrict our choice to someone actually from the area (Fulham didn't, which is why it's such genius). We should try and out-random them by going for someone like Chad Kroeger from Nickelback or Alf Fisher from Home & Away. It would blow their minds.
the whole of nickelback have infact been in sms so they must be fans! as have bon jovi (twice). its a little known fact that bon jovi wrote livin on a prayer as a pi$$take of the skates, think about it the main bloke in the song worked at the docks and then unions been on strike (where have we heard that story before). his girlfriend works for her man (because he wont), oh and they have got each other and thats enough for love! inbreeding joke surley.

Strange how quite a few of us are already putting Boruc into the starting line up. It wouldnt be NA's normal style, but he cant ignore shipping so many goals.
refreshing honesy from Brendan Rogers saying Liverpools defence were lazy, and they cant keep having to score 3 or 5 goals to win a game.

Maybe a better idea would be for NC and NA to provide Saints fans with prayer mats to kneel on and effigies of the Fulham players to stick pins in --- if they do that Saints may just scrape a draw!
NA and NC are out of their depth in the PL and until a top coach with PL experience is brought in to help NA, Saints fans,the Echo, NA and NC will continue, as the song goes -- hopin and prayin and wishin --- before every

To be on the safe side I would appeal to all fans not to put sugar in their tea on match day before the milk. It's very unlucky. My Auntie Elspeth did it twice in one morning and over the next 40 years she lost all her teeth.

So not only is NA out of his depth and needs Mr Hoddle to babysit him but also now NC is out of his depth to so who do you suggest we get in to help him ? Manderic ? Gaydamac ? Or even the fake sheikh? Or better still you oh great wise one. You seem to forget when NC came to southampton he had limited experience of football but he has not done to bad but obviously he has not done enough for you !

Make these new guys earn the money they are being paid to play to their full potential. Fox should be thanked for his work for us in the Championship...but the Premier League is "A Bridge Too Far"
Our tactics have been poor defensively; Fox has been good going forward and dead ball stuff, our goalkeeper position now shows promise and we will improve in this area. Midfield is still an issue, we have only Davies who can tackle, Spiderman is good to watch, good passer, but we need more steel. I also tink the balance is not right, which is why we play pretty stuff going forward, while leaking goals as teams walk through our midfield poring onto our defence unchallenged. Arsenal had the same problem when Wenger first went there, so he put Petie and Veria in front of the back four. I like the option of Mululu and Lambert, maybe starting will be a bit risky, but this guy running onto Lamberts flicks and passes could scare the bits off a defence. My team Borat, Dicky, Jos, Japan guy, Clyde, Davis, Chappers, Spider or Lala, Ramy, Lambert, Malulu

refreshing honesy from Brendan Rogers saying Liverpools defence were lazy, and they cant keep having to score 3 or 5 goals to win a game.
Or a realisation that he made selection and tactical errors and is starting to feel the pressure. Rodgers has had a pop at the FA, referees and now his own players since he's taken over at Liverpool. He's trying to do what Ferguson Snr. does but lacks the 19 titles to back up his opinions.

Say what you want about Nigel but he never blames a third party for his own mistakes and remains upbeat and positive even when others are faltering. I admire that.

NA and NC are out of their depth in the PL and until a top coach with PL experience is brought in to help NA, Saints fans,the Echo, NA and NC will continue, as the song goes -- hopin and prayin and wishin --- before every

i wondered how long it would be before someone came on this (unrelated) thread to slag off fox. well done you! what's your opinion on guly?
Obviously, there's a few who think Fox and Guly are to blame for everything. It's not clear, however, whether they think Fox is to blame for Guly or vice versa.

I blame Fox and Guly for this ambiguity.

PS I have just ordered a 'Fox 'n Guly' shirt.

Actually, I blame Fox for the state of Britain today. Do you remember when she got on a tank and drove through the picket lines of Wapping so that Rupert Murdoch could bust a strike and get The Sun out on time? Well that, to me, was when ordinary people lost a voice in this country and we've been taking it up the arse from management ever since.

I'm also not keen on notorious 80s rapist The Fox. Anyone remember him? For about three months he was the bogey man. I refused to camp in the garden for fear he's 'get' me. Thinking about it, he's probably out now. :(

On a different subject, have you seen that Michael Appleton is not happy with the FA because they wouldn't let him cancel the home game against Crewe next week.

He wanted to cancel it because they have one international player away and another on standby, so one player or possibly two not available!

How many times do they want to bend the rules?

They surely can't afford international players anyway... Surely that money should be used to pay the tax!!

To be fair, if we keep progressing up the leagues until after we've won the Champions League, the World Cup and then end up playing in an intergallactic space league when we're getting stuffed each week by 20ft tall aliens with nine legs then he will be able to point back to this post and say he was the first to warn us that NC and NA might be out of their depth. He told us YEARS ago. And as he sits alone wheezing his last in a secure unit, that will make it all worth it.

I'm kinda flattered that Velleity has hung on to my words of wisdom, he has certainly gone up in my estimation.
Of course no one will know how Saints would have done had AP not been sacked or how much better they may have done, if they had strengthened last January, they may have even won the Championship last season instead of falling away near the end.
In his scrapbook of my quotes Velleity may also turn up my view that NA could well become the most successful manager Saints have ever had but in my opinion until he finds his feet in the PL he needs support from a coach with PL experience.
The Geordies seem to agree with my view of AP, giving him an 8 year contract, perhaps NC will do the same for NA, for all the Saints fans to see, thus backing him to the hilt and showing his tremendous confidence in NA,during these difficult times ---- but I wouldn't bet on it.
I don't claim superior knowledge, I once thought I made a mistake but I was wrong!

I take it you just scanned through the article instead of reading it? Schneiderlin's injured :/ Richardson for Fox and other than that I agree, why mess with a winning team? Mind you, you've already started with tinkering yourself! Let Boruc gel with the team a bit more before he's put in.

i wondered how long it would be before someone came on this (unrelated) thread to slag off fox. well done you! what's your opinion on guly?
Obviously, there's a few who think Fox and Guly are to blame for everything. It's not clear, however, whether they think Fox is to blame for Guly or vice versa. I blame Fox and Guly for this ambiguity. PS I have just ordered a 'Fox 'n Guly' shirt.
strangley enough mr fucious, i've just seen guly swaggering out of co-op and although i didnt talk to him, he had a "danny fox gets away with everything" look on his face.
He was also wearing a balotelli style 'why always me' t-shirt.
he then rode off on his new micro-scooter.......

You're right!

And doesn't Murdoch own Fox News?

And there was that Desert Fox Nazi blighter.

And I read someone's baby got badly bitten by a Fox.

And that foxy in the Beano was always up to no good.

The cunning swines.

And what about Guly? Not just a one-off I bet. For starters, I know for a fact that Hitler had one Guly.

you have as yet to answer any of those questions despite reposting that you are our superior! oh go on then one example;

you have called for hoddle to be brought in nearly every day for at least a month, you also called for saints to bring in some defenders, after the window shut, and kept calling for this despite being told time and again that we cant, then you spout off that its too late to bring in more defenders and NC/NA should have done so in the window! and you did this as if you knew the rules all the time. i dont think you know much about football and look up all your `facts` about us on the web.

what you fail to remember is that we saints fans have a good memory and can smell fish very easily!

is Chris Baird still at Fulham.he would have been a useful acquisition to the saints squad back in the summer.he has done ok there since moving to craven cottage from ST MARYS.unlike NIEMI who was a bit of a dud during his Fulham days.he should have stuck with us.but the lure of filthy lucre obviously got to him.i dont expect any major team selection shocks but i would like to see Danny Butterfield be given a run out.not necessarily at full back.i would fox the opposition and play him in the hole behind Lambert.anyone rember the hat trick Danny scored in the FA CUP for Palace against Woves a few seasons back.it was like watching a young Jimmy Greaves.

second option is to revert to 4-4-2
sometimes think Adkins is trying to adjust to the premier league a little too much. Don't get me wrong, I know he knows better than I or any of us, what he's doing; just sometimes think we should stick with what we used to destroy every team last year!

Why doesn't NC show the same faith in Nigel that the Geordies have done in AP and grant him an 8 year contract.
After two promos in successive years NC could have easily put his arm round Nigel's shoulder and tell him your'e here for keeps kid --- here's your contract to confirm it.
He didn't and why not ? because if
(and it may now be getting very close to when, in NC's mind) he sacks Nigel he would have to stump up 8 years of NA's contract instead of the 10 months left on his present one.
Which Club, Magpies or Saints has shown most confidence in their manager?
In my book if you want loyalty you have to first show it.
I think NC may be warming up for the sacking by dumping the programme sellers.

the skate boorer, you still havent answered my question about what qualifications you have! whats the problem? you claim to have great intellegence, so why not answer a simple question? i know being able to count to 14 using just your fingers looks clever compared to the usual 12 in skateland, but its not! it just means your more inbred.

i have a second question for you;
do you know the difference between a Paedophile and a Pediatrician?

So, Theborebore is off the "Puncheon at Everton"/"Hoddle for manager"/"Not enough signings in transfer window" rants. How many times will we hear the all-new "why no 8 year contract" argument repeated?

I predict 50 repeats minimum.

Oh, by the way, you are factually incorrect, despite your massive intellect. NA was given a long-term contract when Saints were promoted to the Championship.

-Pens-New-Contract/

May 2011 plus four and a half years = November 2015

If you were a Southampton fan, you'd remember that Adkins dorted out a long-term deal only after promotion.

totally agree!

second option is to revert to 4-4-2
sometimes think Adkins is trying to adjust to the premier league a little too much. Don't get me wrong, I know he knows better than I or any of us, what he's doing; just sometimes think we should stick with what we used to destroy every team last year!

Thoughts?
Interesting,4-4-2 is so adaptable that it is in fact 4-3-3 when a midfielder pushes on,its just the ability to change shape when not in control that we seem to have a problem with,in reality it should switch to 4-5 -1 to win the ball back . But it takes bags of energy and a leader on the pitch and in my humble opinion thats what were lacking,I thought Davis was the kiddy but we need another jimmy case to set the tempo and attitude when we lose the ball.Its all very well going for the obvious culprits,the keeper or the CB,s but defending starts from the front.
Im praying for a clean sheet or at least an indication that we have the ability to win the ball back in midfield.
Is Boruc vocal ? perhaps thats what we need,did you see the utube clip of him throttling naismith ,for not shouldering his responsibility to the back line-loved it.

I am big enough to admit that I got it wrong about the length of NA's contract.
On the day the new contract was announced I must have been reading something much more important in the Beano or was it the Dandy?
It seems as if NC will have to cough up more when he sacks NA, I'm really pleased about that for Nigel's sake.
Maybe that's why weasel NC has sacked the programme sellers, the money he's saved can go towards Nigel's payoff.
Anyone who sacks people who have worked 25 years for a company, by text with no notice, is a scumbag.

Oh Thomasupton/Tebourba
, you really ought to research our club before you come on here trying to wind us up. You'll always be found out as you're just not tuned in enough.

Your double sign on has been outed on another thread, so why not just do the decent thing and get a third identity? We'll soon spot you and welcome you back with open arms.
