Adkins admits he should be favourite for the sack

Nigel Adkins admits he should be favourite to get the sack because of Saints’ precarious position in the Barclays Premier League but has pleaded not to be given "the dreaded vote of confidence".

The Saints continue to occupy bottom spot after two goals from Peter Odemwingie earned West Brom a 2-0 win at the Hawthorns last night.

They have collected only four points out of a possible 30 and conceded 28 goals - the worst defensive record in the top flight.

Adkins said: "I don't think anybody needs to give anyone a vote of confidence because if you do, then we all turn around and say, 'he's got the dreaded vote of confidence'.

"We need to win and I believe we can do it. I'm very proud and privileged to be the Southampton manager. I'll stand out and lead from the front as I've always done.

"I'm very positive. I know I'm a better manager today than when I joined Southampton. I know I've improved a lot.

"But someone is always going to be the favourite [to be sacked], and if you're bottom of the league, well, you should be the favourite probably.

"I'm not going to hide away from that. But what a great challenge we face."

Adkins insists he will remain positive about the battle ahead to survive in the top flight.

He said: "We're going to embrace it with positivity. If I don't believe we can do it, then the players aren't going to believe we can do it.

"We've played eight of the top 10. I'm looking forward to the fixtures we've got coming up."

Where's the other article from last night then?

Look a bad workman always blames his tools - but a good man manager looks into the souls of those not performing to the maximum and does something about it.

I guess the injuries has affected the intensity of his demands on those under performing, but it has to be asked is anyone really under performing?

We need to keep our powder dry and beat the teams around us...the QPR s and Readings of this season, and then make an assessment.

All was rosy after the Villa 2nd half performance, who capitulated once Ireland went off. Any coincidence there?

Back to the tool analagy - we need to sharpen up as we lack a cutting edge. Gaston looks a cut above the rest. At times last night he got the ball out of situations I never thought possible with 3-men on him. It was Messiesque!

I think we are desperately missing Jack Cork. I don't think this is clutching at straws, but he does do things differently to Morgan and Davis in the middle.

Strangely enough not too worried only 5-points adrift - we've been in much worse situations with a much poorer squad/team.

Time to grow some lads - show us you are up to the task or look for another club in January...Nigel not aimed at you!

Nigel, I have been amongst the leaders in congratulating your achievements since being manager of SFC. To bring the Club from League 1 to the Premiership in two seasons is remarkable, and a testament to your ability - at those levels.

However, for whatever reason, you have not been able to continue that talent in the top league. Your advocates keep saying, after every defeat, the next game will see the turnaround. well, it isn't happening.

Every week you tell us how hard you are all working to put things right. well, we did see an improvement last night - we only shipped two goals instead of the consistent three! But the team still isn't putting the ball in the net the other end!

Over ten Premiership games you have failed to address the defensive problems - thus only four points from thirty, and bottom of the league with a dangerous gap appearing above us.

I simply do not believe you have the knowledge and ability to manage at this level. Many of your supporters want to give you more time, but we don't have that time any more. I am happy for you to practice your talents at this level, but not to the detriment of SFC. If we go down this season - and it is looking that way under your stewardship - it will not be quite so simple to return.

If only we could see some improvement week by week, but we don't - which indicates to me that you do not have a grip on the situation.

Thank you for what you have done over the previous two seasons, but it is time for you to move on.

My critics will now say who I would replace you with. I would not say no to Redknap or Hoddle if either could be swayed to come. Both have the experience and nous at this level.

No team has been relegated or won the league in November and there is no reason why NA and/or the team should be written off at this stage.

Yes we need a few better players as i feel that Fox, Morgan, Davis are just not up to it. ...... I would also not be dissappointede with KD back in goal as i feel he directs the defence far better than the other two that have been used.

I still believe Saints will be ok this year. I still offer to bet £100 that Nigel will still be our manager on Christmas Day. I think he's doing well with what we've got; just starting with the Man City game, he had the team set up excellently and it's hardly his fault that Fox headed a ball that was going out of play back to Ballotelli on the penalty spot, or his fault that Hooveild stuck the ball in his own net. Everyone knows we needed better central defenders in the summer, but anyone who thinks that NA & NC didn't do everything theycould to get them is a fool. We may never know why they couldn't get their targets, but we do at least know that Buttner would have come here had Man Utd not come in for him, and it's hard for the neutral to blame Buttner for making that decision.
I would rather go down with Nigel, not that I believe it will happen, than sack him. And final point - there is nobody else out there that I would prefer to see here.

I have real doubts whether this group of players are actually capable of digging themselves out of this hole, ultimately though it will be NA who carries the can!
Steve Clarke said something very telling after the game "we knew if we kept a clean sheet we would win". Every other Manager in this league knows that whatever team NA puts out, it ships goals.
This has been apparent from the Wigan match, the problem is NA and his backroom staff have failed to come up with the right plan/formation/perso
nnel to arrest this.
That's why we are where we are. The question for NC is whether to wait until the window,strengthen then hope that enough points are nicked in order to avoid bottom 3 or act now and appoint somebody he feels capable of getting more out of the current playing staff and avoid being cut adrift before the window opens.
Tough call!

I wish NC would give Nige his endorsement for this season so the pressure would be allieviated a bit... all he really needs to do is get the FBs to cover the flanks and that would stop half the defensive problems - for the other half he needs to instil a bit of steel into our defending. A bit unlucky last night, but WB are a very good side, and away points were unlikely.

Nigel, truely appreciate all you have done for our SFS, but with all due respect we are in this position due to your failings to improve the team pre season. You have spent a hell of a lot of money on players which are no better that Champsionship and some if that. We really needed two strong big central defenders and we wated so much money on Jay Rod. The Japan player is game but no way is he ever going to be good at this level. I am sorry but you have wasted so much money and sent Billy Sharp on loan to forest when it is clear we would all have Sharp over Jay who look really average to say the least. We had a great chance pre season with money to improve the defence which was key to our success at this level and i am afraid you have been found wanting.
Thanks for all you have done but time to move aside and let someone with experience in at this level (not agent harry)

Alas, they're determined little beggars. Every time I swat one away, his mates all come to the funeral.

Managers are, of course, much easier to get rid of than pesky mozzies or WUMs and there will always be a lot of willing replacements. However, it’s unlikely that any would make for a better replacement (and please stop mentioning Harry, Gordon, Shearer or anyone whose success was in the past). I know it’s frustrating, but, rather than falling for the DE’s divisive and persistent ‘Nigel under pressure bullsh!t, let’s keep calm and move forward together.

Haha soo deluded! ok im a PFC supporter but it was obvious to everyone that southampton lacked anything going forward i will admit some of the midfield play was good but you never had the cutting edge if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season i predicted a thrashing every game this season but this was obviously exaguration being a pompey fan but it seems i wasn't far from the truth to have any chance of staying up you are going to need a prolific goal scorer and a better defence as it seems from the game against arsenal that your defenders are your best goal scorers at the moment PUP!

Can any Saints supporter say they were satisfied with last nights performance ?
Nobody wanted to hold the ball most passes went astray the midfield didn't show up and when we had the ball in half there was a charge forward by everyone but the keeper. There seemed to be no plan no structure and not much
appertite to take responsibility, just get rid of the ball. Blame NA blame NC blame the players blame who you like but something aint right. The only plus were our magnificent supporters, they made ya proud .

For the pro NA guys, you seem to think it is better to go down to the Championship with him at the helm. I would prefer the team I have supported for over 60 years to stay up with a capable manger.

To Kent 141 - thank you for your warning! So far so good! To SO50 Saint - thanks for the vote of confidence!!

There are some very good debaters on this site, of both persuasions. As far as the abusers are concerned, well, if they cannot argue without disguised swear words or insults, then they clearly have no valid arguments, and I would not reply to them regardless.

To come out with this type of statement at this time just makes this man more of a hero.

The facts are that he will be discussing the position with NC and they will be very very candid. NC has to decide if its down to Nigel or are these players just not good enough. I realy now think its the latter. They have let Nigel down big time.

The odds must be very high on him going soon. Thats the world we live in. Eventually something has to change ot break the mood of gloom.

I sincerely hope he has until the end of the month because two wins, which is possible, would make a big difference.

Nigel, I hope they stick with you, but if it isn't to be then you will go with full honours, a twenty one gun salute and my utmost respect. You are a legend and one day this will be recognised, if not here then another club will benefit.

Nigel, I have been amongst the leaders in congratulating your achievements since being manager of SFC. To bring the Club from League 1 to the Premiership in two seasons is remarkable, and a testament to your ability - at those levels.

However, for whatever reason, you have not been able to continue that talent in the top league. Your advocates keep saying, after every defeat, the next game will see the turnaround. well, it isn't happening.

Every week you tell us how hard you are all working to put things right. well, we did see an improvement last night - we only shipped two goals instead of the consistent three! But the team still isn't putting the ball in the net the other end!

Over ten Premiership games you have failed to address the defensive problems - thus only four points from thirty, and bottom of the league with a dangerous gap appearing above us.

I simply do not believe you have the knowledge and ability to manage at this level. Many of your supporters want to give you more time, but we don't have that time any more. I am happy for you to practice your talents at this level, but not to the detriment of SFC. If we go down this season - and it is looking that way under your stewardship - it will not be quite so simple to return.

If only we could see some improvement week by week, but we don't - which indicates to me that you do not have a grip on the situation.

Thank you for what you have done over the previous two seasons, but it is time for you to move on.

My critics will now say who I would replace you with. I would not say no to Redknap or Hoddle if either could be swayed to come. Both have the experience and nous at this level.

Then when it doesnt happen a long list pathetic excuses about bad luck, the referee was against us and so on. For God sake grow up its a mess and needs to be sorted out now not next week.

I love Nigel's relaxed manner in his interviews - he's a classy manager and, to be honest, with things looking pretty bleak either way for our Premier League survival, I'd rather we go down sticking to what we believe in than axing anyone, particularly if, as is likely, our negotiations for defensive players weren't perhaps as decisive as they should have been. One slight concern about his relaxed approach though - I do think that the players need to some extent to be reminded that they are in a fight for their lives/careers here. Only when we look ready to put our bodies on the line for survival (which we clearly didn't last night) will the defensive solidity come. A move to 4-4-2 may be required for Saturday too: Davis (we need any kind of Premier League experience in our defence imo), Clyne, Fonte, Maya, Shaw (what have we got to lose at lb?), Adam, Spider, Davis, Puncheon (we miss his pace and danger element), Ramirez (as support striker), Lambert. Jay Rod needs to be managed carefully to fully reach his potential - looks too early for him.
I love Nigel's relaxed manner in his interviews - he's a classy manager and, to be honest, with things looking pretty bleak either way for our Premier League survival, I'd rather we go down sticking to what we believe in than axing anyone, particularly if, as is likely, our negotiations for defensive players weren't perhaps as decisive as they should have been. One slight concern about his relaxed approach though - I do think that the players need to some extent to be reminded that they are in a fight for their lives/careers here.

To GX Saint, no, we did not play better than WBA last night - if we had we would have won!

For the pro NA guys, you seem to think it is better to go down to the Championship with him at the helm. I would prefer the team I have supported for over 60 years to stay up with a capable manger.

To Kent 141 - thank you for your warning! So far so good! To SO50 Saint - thanks for the vote of confidence!!

There are some very good debaters on this site, of both persuasions. As far as the abusers are concerned, well, if they cannot argue without disguised swear words or insults, then they clearly have no valid arguments, and I would not reply to them regardless.

I used to be a regular contributor to the BBC 606 under another name. Some of you may recognise me, but to help I still reside in a northern county!!
Very poetic, but Hoddle has hardly got a proven, recent, premier league record, and although I admit his record for us was decent, I also remember dis-quiet among players relating to his strong religious beliefs. All credibility though was lost at the mention of Redknap! Perhaps supporting Saints for so long has affected your memory! I am still waiting for any of those who suggest we get rid of Adkins to suggest a sensible alternative. No disguised swear words or insults. I have no interest in your contribution to 606 or area of residence. Just out of interest I personally would prefer to go back to the Championship with Adkins and continue to build the club in the manner that got us here so soon (too soon) because with time we will be more than a struggling bottom of the league side only surviving due to our solid defence. I don't spend £2k a year to watch that. I don't think that will happen though, I think the support should have the same faith that Adkins has that things will turn round.

I still believe Saints will be ok this year. I still offer to bet £100 that Nigel will still be our manager on Christmas Day.

Everyone knows we needed better central defenders in the summer, but anyone who thinks that NA & NC didn't do everything theycould to get them is a fool. We may never know why they couldn't get their targets, but we do at least know that Buttner would have come here had Man Utd not come in for him, and it's hard for the neutral to blame Buttner for making that decision. I would rather go down with Nigel, not that I believe it will happen, than sack him. And final point - there is nobody else out there that I would prefer to see here.
Absolutely agree with this post including the bit about preferring to go down with NA if necessary.

Just because we have come up twice in two seasons that doesn't give us any right to stay up let alone take this division by storm (as many people thought we would pre-season).

This is a tough, tough league and we need only work to stay in it this season. If we do, it's only in a couple of years can we look to push on for European qualification etc.

Let's remain positive and be realistic.

I see a few defenders coming in in January.

Keep the faith folks.

Which ever way one looks at the current situation it does not look good. In season 2007/2008 Derby were relegated with just 11 pts and a goal difference of -69. After 10 games they were in a better position than the Saints are now with 6 pts and -17GD.

This month will define our season. With 3 home games and one away against strugglers QPR anything less than 9 pts will I consider condemn us to a quick return to the Championship. Once the gap to safety reaches 6 pts then breaching that gap becomes nigh on impossible.

Everyone refers to Wigan's great escape last season but I would hazard a guess that at no time did Wigan have to make up more than 5 pts.

I fully accept we had a very difficult start to the season but the November fixtures and subsequent results will provide a much truer picture of our ability to "hack" the big time. If at the end of this month we are still rock bottom then unfortunately I would suggest planning takes place for another season in the Championship as soon as possible with the January transfer activity based with this in mind.

At this time it would then be right to consider the position of NA. If NC considers it necessary to remove NA then the new appointment would be under no real pressure to fight of relegation but build and prepare a side for a successful Championship campaign next year.

I am not so sure if the players have let him down, I think its more of the fact that the majority of them simply aren't good enough for the Premiership.

I still believe that NA is the right man for the job and should be given time, however, this could mean more spending in January.

I have to laugh at some of the names put forward to replace NA.
Gordon Strachcan - fiery Scottish guy who NC would neither understand or tolerate.
Harry Redknapp - Football's Arthur Daley, whose spending habits NC would also not tolerate.
Alan Shearer - formidable football player, but no manager.
Paulo di Canio - unproven at this level and just becuse he may speak NC's language doesn't make him a shoe-in.

In short, if you must insist on assuming NA's days are numbered (and I hope they aren't) at least be moderately inventive/sensible in who you put forward, as its become mind numbingly boring reading about the same old same old over and over again.

If he goes now who do we bring in?

Will a new man be get more out the squad?

Does he stay until Christmas and see if things change?

Shall I make money available in January for him or new man?

I believe Saturday's result will decide NA's future at SFC, a win and I think NA gets a stay of execution, a loss then I think he will walk (he seems an honourable man) a draw may not be enough, however until these questions are answered none of know.

I agree with that post to ,except for .... the players we came up with ,NA thought were good enough,its now becoming (unfortunately) obvious ,his judgement was wrong,and he admits it that some of them are,in his words , being found out. That was his call no-one elses.
The defence that is being exposed so cruelly,he thought were good enough and that worries me.
Im not sure he ,even at this stage knows his best back 5.
The other point I want to make is that we have to assume that the players,some of them outstanding,are playing out the tactics practiced on the training pitch,and it aint working.
I like many others want him to succeed ,but as another poster said,improvements are not evident.
Passing for the sake of it looks great but wont get points.
How many players in this current sides now take players on ? Lallana and ramirez.
But he,s here ,hes the boss and I wish him well.

I realy now think its the latter. They have let Nigel down big time. The odds must be very high on him going soon. Thats the world we live in. Eventually something has to change ot break the mood of gloom. I sincerely hope he has until the end of the month because two wins, which is possible, would make a big difference. Nigel, I hope they stick with you, but if it isn't to be then you will go with full honours, a twenty one gun salute and my utmost respect.

That was his call no-one elses. The defence that is being exposed so cruelly,he thought were good enough and that worries me. Im not sure he ,even at this stage knows his best back 5. The other point I want to make is that we have to assume that the players,some of them outstanding,are playing out the tactics practiced on the training pitch,and it aint working. I like many others want him to succeed ,but as another poster said,improvements are not evident. Passing for the sake of it looks great but wont get points. How many players in this current sides now take players on ? Lallana and ramirez. But he,s here ,hes the boss and I wish him well. tugboat

I haven't seen a game apart from the Man Utd one in German TV (which was excellent, though heartbreaking). But according to the last minutes there and all those match and other reports, it's pretty obvious that with the densive personnel we've got it takes an enormous miracle to keep us in the prem. Clearly the best chance to survive would be naming someone who can get us a couple of free defenders from somewhere in Europe or pull one or two out of retirement before January. Obviously Harry could be someone to make that happen? Or would you rather get relegated? Any opinions?

I am not so sure if the players have let him down, I think its more of the fact that the majority of them simply aren't good enough for the Premiership. I still believe that NA is the right man for the job and should be given time, however, this could mean more spending in January.
I think you're right.
As much as they shone in The Championship - some of them clearly don't appear to be good enough.
Either that or they have got so far up their own ar*e* they think they've made the big time!
He has been relegated with Scunthorpe after getting them promoted so he knows all about relegation dogfights.
Adkins is a long way from being the Messiah we want him to be - but the fact is other clubs would bite his hand off for his services.
Worried about a great loss of players if we get relegated? Sounds about right to me...if you get a chance and don't take it - why should we fund the lifestyle...and that includes Ramirez!
I thought we had honest players at the club - but if it's true the step up is the one step too far!

Yes here's an opinion; I would rather stay loyal to an honourable man, help him develop his team and look for long term stability. (there will be a time when we do not have to deal massively in the transfer Market - look at our academy and U'18s)
How would Harry Redknapp benefit the long term future of this club? Any success he had was built on short term gains using money that wasn't his (lining his pockets along the way).
How shrewd was he really in the transfer Market? Look at the money he's spunked on players salaries, agents fees in many cases on players that played no first team football.
He inherited a Spurs side already filled with talent, still bought dross and capitulated whilst under pressure to succeed.
So no thanks to Redknapp, he has no honour, morals or scruples - not a fit for this great club.
Back and support the current manager, it will pay dividends in time.

saintmicky, thank you for your response. I do sense I have hit a raw nerve with you as the hint of sarcasm and obvious anger anger at my view point hits home.

I respect your opinion, and defend your right to express it. I just do not agree with you. Likewise, I hope you respect my view too, and I certainly respect your right to disagree with with me.

However, I can assure you that my memory is still intact, and I remember every manager and their circumstances back to the late 40's - probably a bit longer than you.

As a Saints supporter, having got back to the Premiership, I would like to stay there, not stick to a sinking ship back to the Championship with Nigel! If that's what you want, well and good, but you obviously put an individual above the interests of the Club. To me you are a Nigel Adkins supporter above being a Saints supporter. That's your choice, which I respect, but vigorously disagree with. That's my choice.

Finally, I did not ask you to care about my residence or former 606 contributions. That comment was not for you individually, but a general comment, as I detect the characteristics of previous 606 contributors on here. That's all.

I do thank you for your non abusive responses - that is appreciated!

I used to be a regular contributor to the BBC 606 under another name. Some of you may recognise me, but to help I still reside in a northern county!!
Very poetic, but Hoddle has hardly got a proven, recent, premier league record, and although I admit his record for us was decent, I also remember dis-quiet among players relating to his strong religious beliefs. All credibility though was lost at the mention of Redknap! Perhaps supporting Saints for so long has affected your memory! I am still waiting for any of those who suggest we get rid of Adkins to suggest a sensible alternative. No disguised swear words or insults. I have no interest in your contribution to 606 or area of residence. Just out of interest I personally would prefer to go back to the Championship with Adkins and continue to build the club in the manner that got us here so soon (too soon) because with time we will be more than a struggling bottom of the league side only surviving due to our solid defence. I don't spend £2k a year to watch that. I don't think that will happen though, I think the support should have the same faith that Adkins has that things will turn round.

Having read the Les Read article, I don't think a change of manager would achieve anything (and I don't want NA to go anyway).
What is needed is an acknowledgemwnt that playing 4-3-3 throughout the club is not working for the foirst team at the moment.
We need to sacrifice some of the attacking play to shore up the defence. Tell the defenders to concentrate on defending and get the midfield players to offer more protection rather than galloping up the field to make a poor pass and lose posession.
Several years ago we occasionally played with four full backs in the team. Maybe we need to do something like that again to stop crosses coming into our box.

saintmicky, thank you for your response. I do sense I have hit a raw nerve with you as the hint of sarcasm and obvious anger anger at my view point hits home.

I respect your opinion, and defend your right to express it. I just do not agree with you. Likewise, I hope you respect my view too, and I certainly respect your right to disagree with with me.

However, I can assure you that my memory is still intact, and I remember every manager and their circumstances back to the late 40's - probably a bit longer than you.

As a Saints supporter, having got back to the Premiership, I would like to stay there, not stick to a sinking ship back to the Championship with Nigel! If that's what you want, well and good, but you obviously put an individual above the interests of the Club. To me you are a Nigel Adkins supporter above being a Saints supporter. That's your choice, which I respect, but vigorously disagree with. That's my choice.

Finally, I did not ask you to care about my residence or former 606 contributions. That comment was not for you individually, but a general comment, as I detect the characteristics of previous 606 contributors on here. That's all.

I do thank you for your non abusive responses - that is appreciated!
Ego maniac, I too appreciate your level of adult debate! It is not my liking for NA that causes me to make the comments that I have, I am a Saints supporter above and beyond any individual preference for managers, However I do not believe that changing manager at this stage will get more from the group of players we have, I concede that our pre-season spending could have been more targeted, a steep learning curve for all those involved in that decision making! I think that NA and his style of play, with the right players could be successful, as well as a joy to watch. I would be concerned that if we did survive with another managers ethos, that may be all we ever do again.

Seedhouse the Unrepentant says...

Here is an extract from an interview with Les Reed:

'I am a member of the Board; a Director of the club. We have a small Board and we are all executives so decisions are made quickly, it helps to get things done. Board members are responsible for Football (me) Finance and Operations and the Executive Chairman oversees it all so there are only four of us. I am responsible for what we call the Football Development and Support Centre. It is a concept rather than a facility. FDSC incorporates Coaching, Sports Medicine and Science, scouting and recruitment, kit and equipment and the Academy.

I work closely with the Manager and the Chairman on football matters and manage a staff of about 50 in those 5 departments or pillars. The Manager is able to focus on coaching the team and only the three first team coaches report directly to him. This brings the stability I mentioned earlier because very few staff are affected by a managerial change, the culture remains the same and the strategy stays on course. This was the vision of the Chairman and it is working. It is the hardest job I have done yet but I really enjoy it. Being a manager would be a piece of cake after this! We have a great staff and everyone is pulling together as one.'


Now that we have established the formation of the team and recruitment of players isn't down to NA perhaps we can have a sensible debate?

bluepants, force whatever. My goodness your levels and powers of debate are astounding!

I'm so pleased you are getting pleasure from our discomfort at this stage, and that you believe that good debate can be interpreted as civil war!

Do you know, I've forgotten - put it down to age - where your team is in the league plan, but I remember well how you got there!

Good luck on your continued downfall and - hopefully - eventual demise.

Oops - sorry, you may need a dictionary to understand some of the words .....!!

The answer is to keep Fox out of the team, its pretty bloody obvious if you ask me. EVERYTHING came down his side like every other bloody game he plays in. He just ball watches the whole game and drifts into the box. Another EPIC Adkins signing, has Adkins actually made a good signing yet bar Ramirez who was clearly Cortese's man? I dont think so...

I think Fox is clearly being coached to stick tight to the centre backs inside the box, so as to let the opposition have it wide but then be ready to defend that position as a unit. It's not ideal, but it's better than Fox getting beaten out wide and then having a right wing charge into the penalty area unopposed.

"if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season" So you hold very little hope for the other 4 teams that lost there so far as well? City won there, but it was a very lucky win and not many teams will take anything from there.

Here is an extract from an interview with Les Reed:

'I am a member of the Board; a Director of the club. We have a small Board and we are all executives so decisions are made quickly, it helps to get things done. Board members are responsible for Football (me) Finance and Operations and the Executive Chairman oversees it all so there are only four of us. I am responsible for what we call the Football Development and Support Centre. It is a concept rather than a facility. FDSC incorporates Coaching, Sports Medicine and Science, scouting and recruitment, kit and equipment and the Academy.

I work closely with the Manager and the Chairman on football matters and manage a staff of about 50 in those 5 departments or pillars. The Manager is able to focus on coaching the team and only the three first team coaches report directly to him. This brings the stability I mentioned earlier because very few staff are affected by a managerial change, the culture remains the same and the strategy stays on course. This was the vision of the Chairman and it is working. It is the hardest job I have done yet but I really enjoy it. Being a manager would be a piece of cake after this! We have a great staff and everyone is pulling together as one.'


Now that we have established the formation of the team and recruitment of players isn't down to NA perhaps we can have a sensible debate?
seed... you're wasting your time.I made that same point ages ago, but the "we hate adkins " lot just ignored it.as im not
"in the know" like some of the insider knowledge posters on here,it would seemto me that the club strategy and style of play,plus the player recruitement Is more of a group decision, rather than a single choice of the manager.so it would seem that the whole club is set up to play a certain way.If thats the case then any blame for the predicament we are in must surely be a collective issue,rather than a single one.I think adkins was selected because he bought into the cortese ethos and of the long term success of the club.so if they were to decide on a change of manager the new guy would have to be of a simular mind set.personally I'd stick with a bloke who has scruples, and a decency about himself.because long term this fella will get us there. so short term gambling aint for me.that makes me a
"happy clapper" I s'pose.

Now that we have established the formation of the team and recruitment of players isn't down to NA perhaps we can have a sensible debate?[/p][/quote]seed... you're wasting your time.I made that same point ages ago, but the "we hate adkins " lot just ignored it.as im not "in the know" like some of the insider knowledge posters on here,it would seemto me that the club strategy and style of play,plus the player recruitement Is more of a group decision, rather than a single choice of the manager.so it would seem that the whole club is set up to play a certain way.If thats the case then any blame for the predicament we are in must surely be a collective issue,rather than a single one.I think adkins was selected because he bought into the cortese ethos and of the long term success of the club.so if they were to decide on a change of manager the new guy would have to be of a simular mind set.personally I'd stick with a bloke who has scruples, and a decency about himself.because long term this fella will get us there. so short term gambling aint for me.that makes me a "happy clapper" I s'pose. angus mc coatup

I don't know how many fans comment on here and only go to home games or any games at all...but I try to get most of the away games as well as being a season ticket holder.only missed Man City so far.
The away support is much more loyal and really supports both the manager and the team. I don't go in for this 50yrs of support rubbish ( even though I am nearly in that category). There are plenty of young supporters in their 20's who are just as loyal.
The away games shows the true level of support. Nobody boos or slates Nigel Adkins. We give full support to the end ( and then moan in the car afterwards).
We have enough good players. I think it is tactics where we go wrong and that may where NA needs to learn or have some help.
Last night was crying our for a 5 man midfield. WBA were not great but got the goals when they needed to.
At home maybe go more attacking but away, us long suffering fans would be happy with a mucky point.

I also agree that I would support Saints with Nigel even if we went down ( I don't think we will though ) than get completely disloyal guys like Rednapp or Hoddle in. Hoddle is flaky and Rednapp is a media darling whose record is actually not very good ( especially considering the money he spent).

It will turn around, it always does. supporting the Saints is a way of life. Not something you dip into only when all is going well.

Good man. Everyone with a sensible or light hearted opinion on our mighty club, personnel and situation should be able to express it.
We should however, continue to take exception to the moronic postings of the idiots from up the road whose lives are so blighted by the plight of their tin-pot, shambles of a truly unsupported football club.

Haha soo deluded! ok im a PFC supporter but it was obvious to everyone that southampton lacked anything going forward i will admit some of the midfield play was good but you never had the cutting edge if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season i predicted a thrashing every game this season but this was obviously exaguration being a pompey fan but it seems i wasn't far from the truth to have any chance of staying up you are going to need a prolific goal scorer and a better defence as it seems from the game against arsenal that your defenders are your best goal scorers at the moment PUP!
"if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season" So you hold very little hope for the other 4 teams that lost there so far as well? City won there, but it was a very lucky win and not many teams will take anything from there.
This is the problem with the modern day fan. They think its the name of the club that either wins or loses you the game. Not how good the team is. If this was the case we don't need to play any football at all, just go to the old pools predictions. Pompey fans are more delusional than most, they still think theyre a big succesful club even though that was 70 years ago before most of them were even born!!!

Considering Pompey have such amazing fans that are so united behind their team, why is it that there seems to be so little interest in the forums on The News website? Thought I'd check it out and, would you believe, here is the proof of the massive support behind your team:

Stevenage 2 Pompey 1 (0 comments)
Sheff Utd 1 Pompey 0 (3 comments
Pompey 0 Notts County 3 (2 comments)
Harris hands Pompey surprise boost (2 comments)
New appeal over Scott Allan crash (0 comments).

Newsflash: your local club's site needs you. I know there is no interest in PFC and thus no discussion, but at least go and try to spark something up. You never know, maybe that old granny on her scooter is logging on as we speak.

Wow! 8 losses in 10 games, that takes some doing! Nigel must stay! It's not like he had the money & all summer to settle on one keeper and put together a half decent defense. What a genius to try three goalkeepers in 7 games, until one has a decent game. Thank god we gave Billy Sharp his marching orders, he only scored 9 goals in 15 games last season. We have our "super sub" Do Prado! Who comes on & does nothing. And then there is Punchoun, who has no problem holding onto the ball. Leave your best & most experienced player on the bench for two games. This Adkins is a visionary! Are the rest of you Saints fans watching the same games I am? I see a team that is lost! We hold onto the ball way to long, our play is predictable, no mixture of direct or long balls to go along with the decent passing game we have. Not enough quick breaks, probably because the defense is bad. It's laborious and easy for other defenses to read. I respect the loyalty of the fans, but it's not so much the points tally, but the poor decisions he has made that greatly worries me. Nice guy though he is, he has to go & hopefully be replaced with sb with some Premiership experience, not another Wiggly or Stuart Gray.

We have had more than our fair share of bad luck this season, with injuries, deflected goals etc. Even last night the first goal was handball followed by a deflection, we hit the bar and had a stonewall penalty denied. The second goal killed us stone dead.
Gaston looks real quality and if he can keep fit then I beleive we still have a chance, as long as we start throwing bodies in the way of shots and crosses and defending a sa team.Someone mentioned the way Fox tucks in and surrenders the wing, Harding did the same thing so it has to be tactical, but I for my life cannot understand what it achieves. I like Nigel and hope that he can turn things around, even if we get relegated then I would stick with him the club has a vision of how they want to play and how they want to develop young players. Another 12 months and some more of the young talent will start to emerge. We need a manager who believes in the whole ethos of the club.We will not become Barcelona overnight, or even in the next 5 years but the plan is to build a club with the same philosyphy.

Nigel, I have been amongst the leaders in congratulating your achievements since being manager of SFC. To bring the Club from League 1 to the Premiership in two seasons is remarkable, and a testament to your ability - at those levels.

However, for whatever reason, you have not been able to continue that talent in the top league. Your advocates keep saying, after every defeat, the next game will see the turnaround. well, it isn't happening.

Every week you tell us how hard you are all working to put things right. well, we did see an improvement last night - we only shipped two goals instead of the consistent three! But the team still isn't putting the ball in the net the other end!

Over ten Premiership games you have failed to address the defensive problems - thus only four points from thirty, and bottom of the league with a dangerous gap appearing above us.

I simply do not believe you have the knowledge and ability to manage at this level. Many of your supporters want to give you more time, but we don't have that time any more. I am happy for you to practice your talents at this level, but not to the detriment of SFC. If we go down this season - and it is looking that way under your stewardship - it will not be quite so simple to return.

If only we could see some improvement week by week, but we don't - which indicates to me that you do not have a grip on the situation.

Thank you for what you have done over the previous two seasons, but it is time for you to move on.

My critics will now say who I would replace you with. I would not say no to Redknap or Hoddle if either could be swayed to come. Both have the experience and nous at this level.
Agreed, it’s not necessarily the loosing but the way we loose. Nigel it was good while it lasted but as long as fans have to throw away their hard earned money and the players continue to be paid thousands/week and keep losing the way they do then you have to go. Enough is enough. Sorry mate, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles in football.

The position we are in is Adkins' fault, though not through his managerial tactics. It's in spending over £20 million on attackers and 2.5p on defenders.

If he can resolve this in January we might be okay. Could be too little too late.

I will always back him as manager if he can make the right signings

COYR[/p][/quote]Haha soo deluded! ok im a PFC supporter but it was obvious to everyone that southampton lacked anything going forward i will admit some of the midfield play was good but you never had the cutting edge if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season i predicted a thrashing every game this season but this was obviously exaguration being a pompey fan but it seems i wasn't far from the truth to have any chance of staying up you are going to need a prolific goal scorer and a better defence as it seems from the game against arsenal that your defenders are your best goal scorers at the moment PUP![/p][/quote]"if you are going to lose to teams like West Brom i don't hold much hope for you this season" So you hold very little hope for the other 4 teams that lost there so far as well? City won there, but it was a very lucky win and not many teams will take anything from there.[/p][/quote]This is the problem with the modern day fan. They think its the name of the club that either wins or loses you the game. Not how good the team is. If this was the case we don't need to play any football at all, just go to the old pools predictions. Pompey fans are more delusional than most, they still think theyre a big succesful club even though that was 70 years ago before most of them were even born!!! HAHAHAHA STID[/p][/quote]I think they won the FA cup recently actually but whos bothered.[/p][/quote]Actually I think they stole the FA cup recently, and thats why their in the poo now, have been for the last 5 years and will be for the next 10.

Considering Pompey have such amazing fans that are so united behind their team, why is it that there seems to be so little interest in the forums on The News website? Thought I'd check it out and, would you believe, here is the proof of the massive support behind your team:

Stevenage 2 Pompey 1 (0 comments)
Sheff Utd 1 Pompey 0 (3 comments
Pompey 0 Notts County 3 (2 comments)
Harris hands Pompey surprise boost (2 comments)
New appeal over Scott Allan crash (0 comments).

Newsflash: your local club's site needs you. I know there is no interest in PFC and thus no discussion, but at least go and try to spark something up. You never know, maybe that old granny on her scooter is logging on as we speak.
That old granny on her scooter is always logged on, we know her as bluerinsehants, fart14. and nomoregloryeva
The photo was taken when she, a wealthy board member of PFC, remembered it was pension day and a chance to nick some money from the other OAPs at the post office

The away games shows the true level of support. Nobody boos or slates Nigel Adkins. We give full support to the end ( and then moan in the car afterwards).
We have enough good players. I think it is tactics where we go wrong and that may where NA needs to learn or have some help.
Last night was crying our for a 5 man midfield. WBA were not great but got the goals when they needed to.
At home maybe go more attacking but away, us long suffering fans would be happy with a mucky point.

I also agree that I would support Saints with Nigel even if we went down ( I don't think we will though ) than get completely disloyal guys like Rednapp or Hoddle in. Hoddle is flaky and Rednapp is a media darling whose record is actually not very good ( especially considering the money he spent).

It will turn around, it always does. supporting the Saints is a way of life. Not something you dip into only when all is going well.
Very well said.

I was an armchair viewer last night, but I thought the away support was fantastic (yet again) and made much more noise than the home fans - not least (but admirably) even after we'd gone behind. It wasn't a great night, but that part of it WAS great - and I really appreciated it. Thanks to all of you.

Most supporters (80%) 'give' to the club they love, but there's an element (20%) which simply 'use' it in the same way they use Sainsburys.

Ontario Saint says...

I cannot blame the Echo for this particular article as they are only reporting what Nigel said after last night's game.

But what I have blamed the Echo for is that they are not coming out to support Nigel for all he has done for the Club in getting back to back promotions .

What Nigel needs is to know that the local press have full confidence in him.It does not help when 3-4 times a week the Echo questions how long Nigel will be with the Club if they continue to lose games.

If Nigel is forced out of the Managerial position the Echo journalists will need to l ask themselves how much better things might have been had they come and supported him and reduced his stress and confidence levels.

This also impacts on the players who for the most part are performing well in terms of possession but have made some bad defensive mistakes . If possession won games Saints would be in mid table rather than in bottom place.

The team and Manager have the ability to turn things around but this will only happen if the Echo and Management gets behind Nigel. The Club will only go downhill if he is fired. and all the happiness he has brought to the club and fans alike will have been forgotten
I cannot blame the Echo for this particular article as they are only reporting what Nigel said after last night's game. But what I have blamed the Echo for is that they are not coming out to support Nigel for all he has done for the Club in getting back to back promotions . What Nigel needs is to know that the local press have full confidence in him.It does not help when 3-4 times a week the Echo questions how long Nigel will be with the Club if they continue to lose games. If Nigel is forced out of the Managerial position the Echo journalists will need to l ask themselves how much better things might have been had they come and supported him and reduced his stress and confidence levels. This also impacts on the players who for the most part are performing well in terms of possession but have made some bad defensive mistakes .

A vote of confidence by Cortese including extending NA 's contract by 2 years would really mean something and end all this unhealthy speculation.
NA is a good man and a good manager but like everyone else at SMS has no experience of managing in the PL probably the toughest in the world, he is out of his depth, clearly evidenced by his team selections and substitutions, which to most supporters sometimes beggars belief!!
Is Nigel too stubborn or ashamed to ask for help or is Cortese vetoing getting in a respected, defensive coach with PL experience to help NA get us back on track?
With all the schoolboy defensive bloomers and own goals it seems to me to be the obvious, cheapest and best thing to do!
It may not work but surely it is better than doing nothing, to do nothing is inexcusable.
I think NC is treating the season ticket holders, who invested a lot of money upfront and the equally loyal supporters, who pay match by match, with utter contempt.
Remember NC -- you can fool some of the supporters all of the time ( the happy clappers) and all of the supporters some of the time but you can't fool all of the supporters all of the time!! --- as ye sow so shall ye reap!!!!!!!!

The main flaw in that report is that there is no-one at the club called Nigel Atkins!
But regrettably the story is gathering weight. Paulo di Canio is now odds on. Jeez.

We have our "super sub" Do Prado! Who comes on & does nothing. And then there is Punchoun, who has no problem holding onto the ball. Leave your best & most experienced player on the bench for two games. This Adkins is a visionary! Are the rest of you Saints fans watching the same games I am? I see a team that is lost! We hold onto the ball way to long, our play is predictable, no mixture of direct or long balls to go along with the decent passing game we have. Not enough quick breaks, probably because the defense is bad. It's laborious and easy for other defenses to read. I respect the loyalty of the fans, but it's not so much the points tally, but the poor decisions he has made that greatly worries me. Nice guy though he is, he has to go & hopefully be replaced with sb with some Premiership experience, not another Wiggly or Stuart Gray.

Considering Pompey have such amazing fans that are so united behind their team, why is it that there seems to be so little interest in the forums on The News website?

Newsflash: your local club's site needs you. I know there is no interest in PFC and thus no discussion, but at least go and try to spark something up. You never know, maybe that old granny on her scooter is logging on as we speak.

Well you may have noticed if you looked back further that Southampton "Supporters" and i use the word lightly have destoryed the forums posting abuse and ruining what used to be a forum for pompey fans to communicate a lot of pompey websites have recently been set up as well as well informed pages on social media websites and people use these now as a form of communication also note that most southampton "Supporters" have never been to a game and this is the only way of communicating and i think you will find that the stories get a lot of views. but mostly its because most portsmouth supporters use social media perhaps its time southampton stepped into the 21st century too
That would explain the masses of empty seats at your home matches - All your supporters are too busy on Facebook and Twitter!
Might go some way to explain why you can't sell out in the prem despite having a much higher average wage than portsmouth and having many more citizans. Lets not get b****y now girls!

Look at NC record concerning managers, he is a ruthless business man. So dont you think if NC was going to sack Nigel he would have done it already. Signs seem to suggest he is sticking with Adkins. As for the transfers we dont know what went on behind the scenes, and we probably missed out on a few targets. So think come January we can see a busy transfer window for us. But everyday now i read about Nigel's future, and its never ending. If we get relegated NA will be the worse manager ever to some. But if he gets us promoted again those same people will be classing him as the saints greatest manger again!. To be honest i would rather have stability in the manager, club and finances than Glory. Was not long ago we were on the brink of death, and was we moaning about stupid things. More like fighting for our club, that spirit has seemed to have gone in many.

Is Nigel too stubborn or ashamed to ask for help or is Cortese vetoing getting in a respected, defensive coach with PL experience to help NA get us back on track?
With all the schoolboy defensive bloomers and own goals it seems to me to be the obvious, cheapest and best thing to do!
It may not work but surely it is better than doing nothing, to do nothing is inexcusable.
I think NC is treating the season ticket holders, who invested a lot of money upfront and the equally loyal supporters, who pay match by match, with utter contempt.
Remember NC -- you can fool some of the supporters all of the time ( the happy clappers) and all of the supporters some of the time but you can't fool all of the supporters all of the time!! --- as ye sow so shall ye reap!!!!!!!!

absolutely correct. If we go down, he has had 40 games. Thats 40 games of experience. AF has celebrated 26 years today at MU, thats what we should be looking at. Plus if we get relegated it sets an example to the leagues, not to knee jerk. In Nigel we trust.

Hilarious, thanks bluepants, any Portsmouth supporter saying another club is an embarrassment to the Premier League is clearly a great comedian.

Having to make the Premier League sweat about your ability to fulfil your fixtures is pretty embarrassing don't you think... oh, and then doing the same to the Championship the very next year.

Guys,

Let's not forget where we were 2 years ago!

So far we have played 8 of the top 10 teams in the division - from the 2 that are not we've accumulated 4 points - fact

We are playing the best football we've seen in along time - fact

Nigel has taken us through 2 promotions - fact

Even when we were an established Prem team, we were always (apart from 1 year) fighting relegation - fact

We have no divine right to be beating teams just because we need to - fact

If we go down, Nigel has the ability to get us back up - hopefully

The key players are far more likely to stick around if Nigel is still there, he has a bond and they have been through a lot together.

Let's get behind the team and manager and enjoy the ride - even if we do a West Brom for a few seasons and yoyo, it's far better than that lot down the road!

I cannot blame the Echo for this particular article as they are only reporting what Nigel said after last night's game.

But what I have blamed the Echo for is that they are not coming out to support Nigel for all he has done for the Club in getting back to back promotions .

What Nigel needs is to know that the local press have full confidence in him.It does not help when 3-4 times a week the Echo questions how long Nigel will be with the Club if they continue to lose games.

If Nigel is forced out of the Managerial position the Echo journalists will need to l ask themselves how much better things might have been had they come and supported him and reduced his stress and confidence levels.

This also impacts on the players who for the most part are performing well in terms of possession but have made some bad defensive mistakes . If possession won games Saints would be in mid table rather than in bottom place.

The team and Manager have the ability to turn things around but this will only happen if the Echo and Management gets behind Nigel. The Club will only go downhill if he is fired. and all the happiness he has brought to the club and fans alike will have been forgotten
The Echo are banned from St Mary's. So, what does it say about the Echo if they bow down and start writing brainwashed propaganda as NC wants them to do.

Personally I'd prefer an independent newspaper rather than a lapdog, whether that means some negative (realistic) articles or not.

To be viewed as a trusted source of news it can't just keep its blinkers on or fail to report what other sources are saying about the Saints.

I check out these stories most days and guess which stories get the least views and the fewest comments - the press release style stuff you'd find sitting on the official site.

Considering Pompey have such amazing fans that are so united behind their team, why is it that there seems to be so little interest in the forums on The News website? Thought I'd check it out and, would you believe, here is the proof of the massive support behind your team: Stevenage 2 Pompey 1 (0 comments) Sheff Utd 1 Pompey 0 (3 comments Pompey 0 Notts County 3 (2 comments) Harris hands Pompey surprise boost (2 comments) New appeal over Scott Allan crash (0 comments). Newsflash: your local club's site needs you. I know there is no interest in PFC and thus no discussion, but at least go and try to spark something up. You never know, maybe that old granny on her scooter is logging on as we speak.
That old granny on her scooter is always logged on, we know her as bluerinsehants, fart14. and nomoregloryeva The photo was taken when she, a wealthy board member of PFC, remembered it was pension day and a chance to nick some money from the other OAPs at the post office HAHAHAHAHAHA STID
Well you may have noticed if you looked back further that Southampton "Supporters" and i use the word lightly have destoryed the forums posting abuse and ruining what used to be a forum for pompey fans to communicate a lot of pompey websites have recently been set up as well as well informed pages on social media websites and people use these now as a form of communication also note that most southampton "Supporters" have never been to a game and this is the only way of communicating and i think you will find that the stories get a lot of views. but mostly its because most portsmouth supporters use social media perhaps its time southampton stepped into the 21st century too
Personally I have never and never will go on a Pompey forum.

That would explain the masses of empty seats at your home matches - All your supporters are too busy on Facebook and Twitter!
Might go some way to explain why you can't sell out in the prem despite having a much higher average wage than portsmouth and having many more citizans. Lets not get b****y now girls!
Our average gate in League 1 and the Championsip was higher than yours when you were in the premiership .Check the figures if you like. So who's the better supported team???

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,

Is the man who thinks he can.

The Echo are banned from St Mary's. So, what does it say about the Echo if they bow down and start writing brainwashed propaganda as NC wants them to do.

Personally I'd prefer an independent newspaper rather than a lapdog, whether that means some negative (realistic) articles or not.

To be viewed as a trusted source of news it can't just keep its blinkers on or fail to report what other sources are saying about the Saints.

I check out these stories most days and guess which stories get the least views and the fewest comments - the press release style stuff you'd find sitting on the official site.

I agree but lets be real here. Why are the Echo banned from St Marys? The definition of journalism is the investigation and reporting of events, issues and TRENDS to a broad audience. Though there are many variations of journalism the IDEAL is to inform the INTENDED audience.

In this instance they have quoted Nigel pretty much word for word as did the BBC.

And lets be real how many of these sports writters that work for local papers are actual fans of the local club? My bet is they all have either a Chelsea or a Manchester united shirt in their closet at home.

A writter that is a supporter of the club but has the ability to report the facts with the view of the intended audience would not only be welcome but refreshing to us.

Guys,

Let's not forget where we were 2 years ago!

So far we have played 8 of the top 10 teams in the division - from the 2 that are not we've accumulated 4 points - fact

We are playing the best football we've seen in along time - fact

Nigel has taken us through 2 promotions - fact

Even when we were an established Prem team, we were always (apart from 1 year) fighting relegation - fact

We have no divine right to be beating teams just because we need to - fact

If we go down, Nigel has the ability to get us back up - hopefully

The key players are far more likely to stick around if Nigel is still there, he has a bond and they have been through a lot together.

Let's get behind the team and manager and enjoy the ride - even if we do a West Brom for a few seasons and yoyo, it's far better than that lot down the road!

Alas, they're determined little beggars. Every time I swat one away, his mates all come to the funeral. The good news, though, is that the noisiest one - Kent121, of course - got flattened on the bathroom wall last night. It’s just a pity that in reality getting rid of pests isn’t so easily achieved.

Managers are, of course, much easier to get rid of than pesky mozzies or WUMs and there will always be a lot of willing replacements. However, it’s unlikely that any would make for a better replacement (and please stop mentioning Harry, Gordon, Shearer or anyone whose success was in the past). I know it’s frustrating, but, rather than falling for the DE’s divisive and persistent ‘Nigel under pressure bullsh!t, let’s keep calm and move forward together.
Back to insults again Strasbourg lol. Take your blinkers off and you might actually realise what a mess Saints are in. The only thing that surprises me is why Adkins is still in his job today. You just keep clapping from abroad, actually I think I can here you from here.

Ah yes, the "it's all the fault of the fixture computer" argument.

Well maybe there's some truth in the argument. In your first 10 games you have had to play over half of the top 19 sides in the Premier League. EVERY team who have beaten you in the league is ABOVE you in the table. FACT. So none of it is Nigel's fault, and long may he continue in his job.

Quite funny to read a thread where the childish remarks of the blue few are largely are being ignored and hung out to dry...(bit like their club really).
As for us, well...we all know now that it is a tough ask for us this season. It would seem that our squad is nowhere near up to the speed of the Prem.
I think we still have a chance to be in touch come January...IF we start winning the crucial home games we have ahead of us. As for NA...he has integrity and I like that...he is no fool and given time (yes...ok...and money in January)..can make this work.
The backing of the fans just might make a difference (Blackburn fans last season were a disgrace imo...I wouldn't take my daughter to experience atmospheres like that)...I'm happy to be 1/30000th of the equation that just might help us stay in the top flight of football. COYR

Where's the other article from last night then?

Look a bad workman always blames his tools - but a good man manager looks into the souls of those not performing to the maximum and does something about it.

I guess the injuries has affected the intensity of his demands on those under performing, but it has to be asked is anyone really under performing?

We need to keep our powder dry and beat the teams around us...the QPR s and Readings of this season, and then make an assessment.

All was rosy after the Villa 2nd half performance, who capitulated once Ireland went off. Any coincidence there?

Back to the tool analagy - we need to sharpen up as we lack a cutting edge. Gaston looks a cut above the rest. At times last night he got the ball out of situations I never thought possible with 3-men on him. It was Messiesque!

I think we are desperately missing Jack Cork. I don't think this is clutching at straws, but he does do things differently to Morgan and Davis in the middle.

Strangely enough not too worried only 5-points adrift - we've been in much worse situations with a much poorer squad/team.

Time to grow some lads - show us you are up to the task or look for another club in January...Nigel not aimed at you!
I like your analysis and unike some of the shallow supporters on here who seem to forget what has been achieved in two fantastic seasons, lets support Nigel 100% even though he, along with the coaching team have obviously cocked it up for the time being by believing that Fox Fonte Jos and KD could step up, but instead their individual errors have let us all down.

Cork and a fit Ramirez will make a big difference.

And my vote for best GK goes to Gazza.

Are they in the English football league !? are they playing another hampshire club, is there another decent Hampshire club apart from Saints and Bournemouth ( down r3tards,,,, Bournemouth is NOT in dorset, only the government think that ) ??? so is this a Brentford versus Basingstoke ??? sorry I am so out of touch with local grass roots football..

Why would he want to go to Blackpool, when Ian Holloway is well documented as being fed up with a minimal playing budget. Hardly appealing. Plus Appy could get us to the play offs(well he could) so we'll be in the same league as Blackpool next year (god willing).

Those of you calling for NA to go should go and support Man United.
Your all be asking for Lowe back next.
NC & NA and Let's never forget ML have done wonders for this club and too many of you want too much too soon. All we need to do this season is stay up nothing else this is not a million miles away, the fixtures have given us most games against the top half of the prem. Lets see where we are after playing everybody else in the league. That's a fair way of see where we stand. What we need more than anything is to have the same manager for 10 years plus, look at Everton, Man U, Arse and even Newcastle want this. Please keep the faith as one and don't forget the 5 year plan.

Nigel, I have been amongst the leaders in congratulating your achievements since being manager of SFC. To bring the Club from League 1 to the Premiership in two seasons is remarkable, and a testament to your ability - at those levels.

However, for whatever reason, you have not been able to continue that talent in the top league. Your advocates keep saying, after every defeat, the next game will see the turnaround. well, it isn't happening.

Every week you tell us how hard you are all working to put things right. well, we did see an improvement last night - we only shipped two goals instead of the consistent three! But the team still isn't putting the ball in the net the other end!

Over ten Premiership games you have failed to address the defensive problems - thus only four points from thirty, and bottom of the league with a dangerous gap appearing above us.

I simply do not believe you have the knowledge and ability to manage at this level. Many of your supporters want to give you more time, but we don't have that time any more. I am happy for you to practice your talents at this level, but not to the detriment of SFC. If we go down this season - and it is looking that way under your stewardship - it will not be quite so simple to return.

If only we could see some improvement week by week, but we don't - which indicates to me that you do not have a grip on the situation.

Thank you for what you have done over the previous two seasons, but it is time for you to move on.

My critics will now say who I would replace you with. I would not say no to Redknap or Hoddle if either could be swayed to come. Both have the experience and nous at this level.
Sorry mate, but you are off your head, in my humble opinion of course.

Do you win honours for attendances these days?

Cortese needs to spend spend spend in January just to try to keep up. Or he could hand over to a truly professional chairman like Lord Lowe to wisely spend the necessary investment...
That is outstanding irony, spend, spend may be the Skate way of solving problems, we must spend sensibly to acquire the missing links at LB and CB the rest will all fall into place.
Saints spent millions on that useless Ramirez!!! How much did they receive for Bale?
about 20 times the value of poorsmouth .

So, Kent141, how was the game at WBA last night? You did say you were going, didn't you?

So, what time did you get there? Whereabouts were you? What time did you leave to get back? What time did you get home?

If you have any proof that you WERE there, I'll give £20 to the charity of your choice.
Once again, the third time I've asked about the WBA game and, once again, the sound of silence from our bestest, bestest ever supporter in the world, who is NOT a Portsmouth fan masquerading on here. Oh no.

He definitely went to the game.

Think you will find that most players don't want to seen dead in a southampton shirt possibly even the players you have this season as i can see the stripe is getting thinner perhaps next season your players will just be wearing the full replica united kit sitting at home as no club will want them. Haha, PUP!

I don't know how many Directors attend the Saints' Board Meetings, I suspect the Board Room walls are lined with mirrors and Cortese sits alone at the head of the table, surrounded by reflections of himself, everyone of them, agreeing with his decisions.
Cortese must now come out of the shadows and start earning his money,, showing his mettle and backing NA..
NA's position is now like that of the bus driver who has received awards, two years running for superb, accident free, safe driving, and has been promoted to driving a bigger, faster bus but doesn't really know how to handle it and crashes every other week.
No one at the depot knows anything about how the new bus works and can't help him!!
Ask yourself -- in such circumstances ---- would you want to ride on his bus???
NA is a good driver but needs someone who has driven the new bus for years, to help him stop crashing and stay with NA until he is driving the new bus as well as he did the old one!
Surely it is worth a try, it will cost very little and must be better than sacking NA.
If Cortese does sack NA, he runs the risk, in the future, of three buses coming along together, one after the other, with three different drivers and very few passengers..
Perhaps Cortese will reflect on this at his Board Meeting!

Alas, they're determined little beggars. Every time I swat one away, his mates all come to the funeral. The good news, though, is that the noisiest one - Kent121, of course - got flattened on the bathroom wall last night. It’s just a pity that in reality getting rid of pests isn’t so easily achieved.

Managers are, of course, much easier to get rid of than pesky mozzies or WUMs and there will always be a lot of willing replacements. However, it’s unlikely that any would make for a better replacement (and please stop mentioning Harry, Gordon, Shearer or anyone whose success was in the past). I know it’s frustrating, but, rather than falling for the DE’s divisive and persistent ‘Nigel under pressure bullsh!t, let’s keep calm and move forward together.
Back to insults again Strasbourg lol. Take your blinkers off and you might actually realise what a mess Saints are in. The only thing that surprises me is why Adkins is still in his job today. You just keep clapping from abroad, actually I think I can here you from here.
I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
