Adkins focuses on the postives

Nigel Adkins focused on Southampton's improved performance against Swansea despite yet another defensive mistake costing his side three points.

Saints had the better of proceedings at St Mary's after a week in which the position of the struggling side's manager had come under increasing scrutiny.

Adkins' team responded with character and took the lead 64 minutes in when Morgan Schneiderlin made their dominance count by nodding home from close range.

However, the Premier League's leakiest defence was founding wanting once more as goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga's poor pass to Maya Yoshida was picked off by one-time Southampton academy graduate Nathan Dyer, who punished the hosts.

''I think the supporters, players and everyone is having a go for each other, which is the important thing,'' Adkins said.

''We're together as one. Everyone is having a right go, the performance was good.

''Listen, take the positives. We got a point. We wanted the three and a clean sheet but let's take the positives.

''We got another point on the board. Everyone's together, everyone is working hard.

''We're 11 games into the Barclays Premier League and we're improving all the time.

''We believe we can give all sorts of teams problems going forward, which we've gone and done this season. We've scored goals.

''It is the decision-making process at the back which is the issue. Today was an improvement in respect of the defensive resolve about ourselves.

''Again, the second half against Tottenham, you throw that into the mix. We were on the front foot and dominated that second half.

''There is a lot of good things that we're doing and we'll stick at it and keep working hard.''

Asked if the result had helped reduce the pressure building at the club, Adkins added: ''I think you can see again today that the football club is united and we're determined to be successful here at Southampton.

''We should have had a penalty the other night but didn't get one so at this moment in time things just aren't going are way, but we'll keep working.''

Adkins took his side away for a break in the build-up to the game and shuffled his side around in a bid to take the three points.

Southampton moved up to 19th after a match in which Swansea manager Michael Laudrup was relieved to get a draw.

''I am pleased with a point,'' the Dane said. We knew already before the game that it would be very difficult.

''I think that I said in the press conference on Thursday that we would like to win against Southampton, but they need a win.

''You could really see that. They gave everything in every moment so it was a really difficult game. I think we can be satisfied with going away from here with a point.

''I think we did well in the first half. We did not create much today, to be honest, and in the second half they put us under pressure.''

I think N/A has worked out that he cant do no wrong ..even if every home game ended in defeat 28000 fans would dance and cheer for him according to his devotees on this site so a draw is a fantastic result.

Idiot.

The reason so many people are behind him is that the game before he took over we lost 0-2 at home to the mighty Rochdale in Division 3. A year before that we almost didn't have a club to support.

We have him to thank that 2 years later we're dissapointed with a draw at home in the PREMIER LEAGUE!

None of us are pretending that everything is fine but Nigel Adkins must be given until Christmas at the very least.

When you consider where we were a few years ago I think it's great to be in the premier league. I will happily scrape staying up knowing how well we will improve next season with a year under our belt. I believe most fans want stability at the club and not the revolving door of the past so Nigel Adkins is the man for me. Given time I believe he could be one of our great managers

Totally agree some stability is the key word , I am sure NA knows we need to improve in many areas and that we must cut out the defensive errors and be harder to break down but some key players returning and sense the players believed in themselves yesterday and confidence returning

Was very nervous before yesterday's game, but only took a couple of minutes for me to become involved. I knew that Saints were going to perform positively. We are not yet a good PL side, but we showed on Saturday that we can compete with many teams and I have more confidence now. There will be ups and downs, but wins now seem probable.

There is a lot of positivity and a lot of negativity which goes through this site regarding Saints adventure into the premier league. It might be a good idea, and shed a bit of light on the whole issue if the Daily Echo were to have a poll maybe something like:

There is no getting away from the fact that Saints have had a poor start to life in the premier league. Where do you think blame lies?

a) Adkins (eg. Tactical naivity (too narrow and poor substitutions) and letting Sharpe out on loan)

b) Cortese (eg. He is a mean uncommunicative person who undermines the manager, can't run a business worth toffee, forgets history, treats legends like dirt, alienates the press including our much loved Daily Echo and should be sacked by the Liebherrs.)

c) Some of the Saints Legends (Those who ocasionally snipe at those running the club causing division within the fan base as well as alienating those that run the club)

d) The Liebherrs (eg. Katharina and the rest where are you?? Leadership starts from the top, what is your vision apart from us being part of an estate which will be settled at some point in the furture?)

e) The Daily Echo (eg. Too much influence from ex-players and well known local comedians disgruntled for one reason or other and letting it's own feud with the club interfere with unbiased reporting on the running of the club)

f) The players in general. (There are enough who are not good enough, but there are enough who are who are not stepping up and/or learning from their mistakes)

g) Guly and Fox (They are both S**t. Guly in particular is lazy and also drink drives on the side.)

h) The supporters (those happy clappers who ignore what needs to be done!!!! and the doom an gloomers who run the players, management and team down, and those that boo the players)

g) It's nobody's fault (Life in the Premier League is difficult for promoted sides. We should all take collective responsibility, address what we can and push on!)

Apologise if I have forgotten any other reasons why we might have had a poor start.

There are a lot of interesting opinions on here but we on this site are a very small minority of supporters though it would not achieve much but it could be interesting. I am a tentative f).

I was going to post exactly the same sentiment so I will simply agree with you wholeheartedly.
I think on the showing yesturday, he has been focusing on the negatives. The back four worked more as a unit and very few errors were made. No manager stood on the touch line could of done anything about the mistake made by our goalkeeper. If you were there you would of seen most of the defence shouting at Gazza that he should of put his foot through the ball and clear it, usually they just hang their heads and walk back towards the halfway line. They knew that the perfofmance up to that point was much much better and you could see the hurt they were suffering letting in that goal.

I dont know , but would imagine when they look at the video's of Saturdays games the errors are discused. But to keep on about the Negatives ,imo, will not lift the players for the weeks training ahead of the next game. Surely you guys can see the possitives in the game ?? can you not comment on those as well. We as fans knew this was not going to be easy. You dont state weather you want the manager removed ? . Myself i am all for keeping Nigel and can see the steady improvement the team have made. It's a long way from the MAN U , CHELSEA , SPURS AND EVERTONS of this league but that's the standard i believe our club will reach given time.

Yes i am a happy clapper but i can remember where we were before Nigel got on the bus.

As for drawing at home to Swansea, well, to put it into some sort of context, it's better than losing to Bury.

Keep it up please, it reminds me why I support the Saints.
I would not want to be so sad as to post some of the drivel produced by the sad individuals who constantly malign the efforts being made by my team.
I do not believe they are Portsmouth supporters, I do not believe they are even football fans.
WUM's.

I think most of our fans have learned from the near destruction of the club, due to the revolving door of managers.Let us do something different from all the other clubs and show some loyalty,and i must say so far i am very very proud to be a saints fan,because of the way we have stood shoulder to shoulder behind our man.

I was going to post exactly the same sentiment so I will simply agree with you wholeheartedly.
I think on the showing yesturday, he has been focusing on the negatives. The back four worked more as a unit and very few errors were made. No manager stood on the touch line could of done anything about the mistake made by our goalkeeper. If you were there you would of seen most of the defence shouting at Gazza that he should of put his foot through the ball and clear it, usually they just hang their heads and walk back towards the halfway line. They knew that the perfofmance up to that point was much much better and you could see the hurt they were suffering letting in that goal.

I dont know , but would imagine when they look at the video's of Saturdays games the errors are discused. But to keep on about the Negatives ,imo, will not lift the players for the weeks training ahead of the next game. Surely you guys can see the possitives in the game ?? can you not comment on those as well. We as fans knew this was not going to be easy. You dont state weather you want the manager removed ? . Myself i am all for keeping Nigel and can see the steady improvement the team have made. It's a long way from the MAN U , CHELSEA , SPURS AND EVERTONS of this league but that's the standard i believe our club will reach given time.

Yes i am a happy clapper but i can remember where we were before Nigel got on the bus.
STID
Lots of positives to take from the game
Luke Shaw
Cork
Gaston
Didn't concede 3 goals
Dominated play

and the biggest positve of all

NO GULY

We ain't gonna set this league alight but we CAN survive

No, look above at the names of the posters (7.08pm) and you'll see Jesus is alive and well and a Saints fan!

The sight of all these ex saints scoring against us is a bit depressing,and it is a slight bit troubling we've got more teams to play with ex saints in.Have you all noticed most of our ex saints are forwards and midfielders not many defenders and NO goalkeepers strange that,there seems to be something familiar there.

Monk. Bale and Baird went away happy enough. Ex-saints must have Iq4m in their cofee (whatever that is!). If we can beat Stoke we will beat the curse!!

Last old boy decent goalkeepers were Jones and Niemi and maybe Keller, all retired, I don't think Bialkowski or Forcaste (best of luck to them both!) will trouble us any time soon!

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!

Saintkenny please don't call me a skate.
when we hired Adkins his record was taking a side to the premiership & staying there no matter what he did or so the TV said.
Yes he's been brilliant but you & the rest of the fans know last year our defence was being exposed so yes he's strengthened it but did he go far enough?
I would have loved to see a top rate goalie bought & Fonte got rid of but this never happened.
I believe we needed a tactician/general in midfield but we didn't get one.
I never thought we needed a striker but we got one who made those decisions?
Many people were pro Kelvin Davies yet he punches the ball from defence & cost us at least one goal this season so he had to be replaced even though he saved us in the Championship.
This is why we are calling for Adkins head unless he can pull us out of the bottom three before Christmas

Should put him in goal, there's a poster on the door of our local church proclaiming in large letters "JESUS SAVES". Amen to that.

Your comments always seem to revolve around who we should have signed, should not have signed, where we should have strengthened, who we should have played. So, all we need to resolve all our problems is a time machine. Then we can go back, ask Ashley Cole to join us and he'll say "yes".

Back int he real world, I know you no longer go to games. That's OK, but what you saw on MOTD did not reflect the intense pressure Swansea were under for long periods. One of their fans walking back to town with me thought they had been extremely fortunate not to be four goals down when the big mistake happened.

So, Adkins seems to be addressing things without all the time-travel malarky that you demand. There's still a way to go but he's on the right track...

That's OK, but what you saw on MOTD did not reflect the intense pressure Swansea were under for long periods. One of their fans walking back to town with me thought they had been extremely fortunate not to be four goals down when the big mistake happened. So, Adkins seems to be addressing things without all the time-travel malarky that you demand. There's still a way to go but he's on the right track... Velleity

It's a SUCCESS to be in the premier league having been in league 1 two seasons ago. For Pompey survival would be a MIRACLE. Just so you know there haven't been many of those since Jesus was around and I'm pretty sure he wasn't a pompey fan. Good luck and keep the entertaining posts coming :)
No, look above at the names of the posters (7.08pm) and you'll see Jesus is alive and well and a Saints fan!
It's his second time around, hence the 02 and he knows that not even with all his power can he help the skates!

Hallelujah
Should put him in goal, there's a poster on the door of our local church proclaiming in large letters "JESUS SAVES". Amen to that.
Yes, but Lambert scores from the rebound...
It is in the 99th minute against Stoke City and keeps us up, you heard it here first.

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Add to that list, Referees that can officiate properly and a portion of good luck when it is deserved and then the mission will be completed.

Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?

No sir, it's called loyalty, gratitude and respect for a guy that has done wonders, and, in time given the chance, he will (in my opinion) perform more wonders. If you would prefer the Management merry go round that led to our previous downfall, then that is your choice, keep preaching long enough and no doubt others will jump on the bandwagon.

Hate to say it (and I like Adkins) but his record was not "taking a side to the premiership & staying there no matter what" when we hired him, "or so the tv said." what tv are you watching?

His record was taking a side to the Championship, getting relegated, getting promoted to the Champsionship again and the holding on barely.

I think he'll do better with us (hell, he already has). Jus sayin.

That was the most balanced starting line up I have seen this season. This was the team I think a lot of us has been waiting to see. Good use of Fox as well (no, I'm not his biggest fan either), he does offer a threat going forward and bringing him on at that time nearly worked with some good crosses from the left. Like NA, I was encouraged by what I saw. Injuries permitting, let's keep that team for QPR and give them a football lesson. The season starts on Saturday.

It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two?

To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected?

Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making!

No sir, it's called loyalty, gratitude and respect for a guy that has done wonders, and, in time given the chance, he will (in my opinion) perform more wonders. If you would prefer the Management merry go round that led to our previous downfall, then that is your choice, keep preaching long enough and no doubt others will jump on the bandwagon.

Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making! redandy10

You are making assumptions about the goalkeeping choices, but you must be aware of the circumstances? KD was suffering from a a lack of confidence thanks to a shaky defence, Gazza is inexperienced and can't be expected to perform miracles, Boruc was brought in to address the problem, but blotted his copybook in the Fulham game and is obviously (in my opinion, I don't know for sure because we are never told) taking a Club punishment. If he has "served" his sentence could be back for QPR, or NA may stick to Gazza, we will find out on Saturday. As for the rest of your post, fair enough you can keep that view, I will continue to dispute it until I see more proof, sorry if it upsets you, that's the way I feel, at the moment. Just for clarity, your style is familiar but I don't recognise your name, who were you previously?

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two?

To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected?

Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making!

Thanks for the advice, I chose to ignor it, but you could enlighten me as to why you actually use multiple identities to aggravate and annoy other posters who just want to discuss and debate the merits of the team that we support, is it only on this site or is it some sort of perverted hobby that you do elesewhere?

You ppl make me sick... anti saint clap trap posted by some iq4m, p off down the road to the other lot you are not fans of saints in a million years.
It is not anti-saints. More of a summary of what is posted on here every day a lot of which I am pretty sick of personally. I for one am for stopping the moaning and pushing on united. if you had read my post you would have realised that.

Anyways, I love the club. You p-off down the road
Thornhill Saint i think you and Tirau Dan have got your wires crossed, unless it's me. You are both true SAINTS FANS , but the way i read your posts you are having a little war.

I am also fed up with the other lot on here , but there like the dog **** you cant shake off your shoe. They will not go away, they seem to spend all day on our site and i think one person is posting under more than one name. You've only got to compare the one line answers ,it's the same style wit or **** which ever way you look at it.

Thornhill in your fun poll mark me down as a G. You two boys shake and get back to truely supporting THE BEST TEAM ON THE SOUTH COAST.....THE MIGHTY SAINTS..
Trirau dan, if I misread your post (which is probable) I apologise! From your posts I recognise yourself as a long time knowledgable Saints supporter.
Well put, Bob; yes, all three of you are true Saints; that's pretty clear from this end of my PC.

As for your poll, Thornhill, you can put me down for a G, as well ....... BUT ...... it's the second G - the final option - which should be an I ...... that is, the one after H (not the one after F if you see what I mean)

Confused? You will be! :)
Good posts HEB and Strasbourg Saint. I won't quit the day job and become a pollster anytime soon :'). LOL ballsed up the format a bit!!!

Secondly I'm not out to "annoy" other posters. I respect the fact that people want to debate the current situation. Even though I don't agree with the support for Adkins from most Saints fans, I do admire the loyalty the fans have always displayed. But if I don't agree with them I will express my opinions, and sometimes in a light hearted fashion & try not to offend anyone. I try to keep peoples parents out of it!

But I fear you are posting, whilst under the illusion, that this is the Anfield boot room. It's not! And you're no Bill Shankly. I see you more as a Bobby Gould type, hopefully without the eyebrows!

'Thornhill saint' thornhill a part of Southampton i lived in for 20 years...what a hole! .
I think it upgraded substantially after you self-deported back to p*rtsmouth.
Ha, Ha!! City Saint is right, not many Skates in Thornhill.

As for the hole Flashin the pan seems to be getting so excited about (What a hole!!), the only one I can think of round these parts is Hum Hole and:

a) It is more Bitterne Park
b) It's not that great. Get over it.

Christ! You boys don't play about with this comment posting caper! It's a serious business, which I fear I've got into way over my head. There I was thinking I would try to touch base with a few of my saints muckers, but I end up catching shrapnel from all angles!

By the way I'm not Kent nor am I from Kent.

Looking to the QPR game I think they will be feeling the pressure especially being at home and expected to force the game. If we can start on the front foot and keep them quiet for the first 20 mins or so I really feel we are in with a shout, this game could really determine our season, it will be a massive boost if we could get the win.I have a feeling if we do Mark Hughes will be the first managerial casualty in the Premier League this season!!

If you want to believe I'm this Kent, do so, hopefully it will keep you amused for many an hour.

As for the sunbed nonsense, haven't you noticed, it's November and our great leader of men has a Judith Charmers hew to his face. Unless he's he's scouting a player in Brazil, he's up keeping a nice little tan.

Less sunbed more tactics board please!

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
No sir, it's called loyalty, gratitude and respect for a guy that has done wonders, and, in time given the chance, he will (in my opinion) perform more wonders. If you would prefer the Management merry go round that led to our previous downfall, then that is your choice, keep preaching long enough and no doubt others will jump on the bandwagon.
I don't believe it was the management merrygo round that caused our previous downfall, more a case of lack of investment from the Dark Lord (250k per season) which brought on the merry go round

Redandy, i have made it clear in these posts that I have my doubts about NA and there may come a time soon where a decision may have to be made as much as I like the guy.
However, at the moment we are n the sh1t, and I feel it is important that we become the 12th man, if by being supportive and being loud we can give 1% extra to the team confidence, then it's worth it. Right now it really needs to be ...together as one.

Many people were pro Kelvin Davies yet he punches the ball from defence & cost us at least one goal this season so he had to be replaced even though he saved us in the Championship.
This is why we are calling for Adkins head unless he can pull us out of the bottom three before Christmas

It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two?

To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected?

Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making!
no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect

If you want to believe I'm this Kent, do so, hopefully it will keep you amused for many an hour.

As for the sunbed nonsense, haven't you noticed, it's November and our great leader of men has a Judith Charmers hew to his face. Unless he's he's scouting a player in Brazil, he's up keeping a nice little tan.

Less sunbed more tactics board please!
I think the word you were trying for, was character, we are a bit picky about negatons spelling, the good guys get excused, I asked you if you were kent because you copied his favourite troll, no one else has bothered about NAs appearance being orange, because it only appeared that way in one dodgy pic on this Forum. So give it a miss, wasn't that funny first time not amusing at all now. Try another insult if you must but don't expect any mercy.

By the way, there's a little rumour doing the rounds that Nigel Adkins replaced all the massage tables in the changing room with sunbeds. Can anyone comment as to the validity of this? I heard it from a cabbie. COYR!

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two?

To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected?

Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making!
no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect
So what stopped Adkins buying some experienced players instead of spending on attacking players? You people will make any excuse for this guy. If you can't see that this guy got it wrong in the summer and continues to do so, then I'd like to hear why we look out of our depth. And by the way, in the summer West Ham strengthened in the areas they needed to.

Simple mathematics tells us that a team we finished above in the Championship, is much better equipped this year, why?

Throughout the summer, on this very site, you were all, rightly, asking for defenders to be signed. So why is Adkins given a pass for not doing that?

Three goalkeepers in six games, what excuse have you got for that? Lambert on the bench twice, what was the point of that? Hopefully you can enlighten us, as Nigel didn't really answer that question when asked.

There are some Saints fans who treat this as a popularity contest, they like Adkins as a person so there going to round the wagons. We are heading back down, this is not down to bad luck or injuries, it's purely down to bad management!

Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected? Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making![/p][/quote]no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect[/p][/quote]So what stopped Adkins buying some experienced players instead of spending on attacking players? You people will make any excuse for this guy. If you can't see that this guy got it wrong in the summer and continues to do so, then I'd like to hear why we look out of our depth. And by the way, in the summer West Ham strengthened in the areas they needed to. Simple mathematics tells us that a team we finished above in the Championship, is much better equipped this year, why? Throughout the summer, on this very site, you were all, rightly, asking for defenders to be signed. So why is Adkins given a pass for not doing that? Three goalkeepers in six games, what excuse have you got for that? Lambert on the bench twice, what was the point of that? Hopefully you can enlighten us, as Nigel didn't really answer that question when asked. There are some Saints fans who treat this as a popularity contest, they like Adkins as a person so there going to round the wagons. We are heading back down, this is not down to bad luck or injuries, it's purely down to bad management![/p][/quote]Not fooling anyone mate, give it up, we have been over this subject matter ad nauseam, you not saying anything that hasn't already been thoroughly discussed, give it a rest please.

As for the sunbed nonsense, haven't you noticed, it's November and our great leader of men has a Judith Charmers hew to his face. Unless he's he's scouting a player in Brazil, he's up keeping a nice little tan.

Less sunbed more tactics board please!
I think the word you were trying for, was character, we are a bit picky about negatons spelling, the good guys get excused, I asked you if you were kent because you copied his favourite troll, no one else has bothered about NAs appearance being orange, because it only appeared that way in one dodgy pic on this Forum. So give it a miss, wasn't that funny first time not amusing at all now. Try another insult if you must but don't expect any mercy.
If the spelling is off, apologies, but some of us work for a living and have to multitask! What is it with you, Adkins and the sunbeds? And what is a favourite troll when it's at home?

Up till now I've been nice, but seriously, get a life!

By the way, there's a little rumour doing the rounds that Nigel Adkins replaced all the massage tables in the changing room with sunbeds. Can anyone comment as to the validity of this? I heard it from a cabbie. COYR!
Was the sunbed jibe aimed at you? You for some reason have taken this little foolish jape personally. I never even quoted a post of yours and you responded to me, so how did I start with you? I'm curious as to why you are so sensitive about Adkins and suntanning?
And again, I'm not Kent!!!

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two?

To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected?

Was the sunbed jibe even necessary, did you think it funny? If not kent141 then who are you, having used his material I expect he is laughing his socks off at it being reused by you? You asked if there was a rumour. The answer is there is no rumour, just a silly WUM trolling it.

I responded to your post isn't that what trolls and WUMs require to feed their ego? I do take my Club seriously so if anyone posts derogatory, or misinformed criticism, I am honour bound to respond. I am defending Nigel Adkins because he can't do it for himself, I happen to think he is the right man to carry us forward given the chance. You don't agree fair enough, but I strongly urge you to consider the possible alternatives, because despite hours of discussion on these forums, not one satisfactory alternative has been put forward, if you have a specific suggestion please enlighten us and we can follow it up and discuss it's merits, but just to come on here **** with no ideas of your own is just wasting everyones time.

I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?[/p][/quote]It's called "support". Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon. Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.[/p][/quote]With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals! Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two? To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected? Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making![/p][/quote]no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect[/p][/quote]So what stopped Adkins buying some experienced players instead of spending on attacking players? You people will make any excuse for this guy. If you can't see that this guy got it wrong in the summer and continues to do so, then I'd like to hear why we look out of our depth. And by the way, in the summer West Ham strengthened in the areas they needed to. Simple mathematics tells us that a team we finished above in the Championship, is much better equipped this year, why? Throughout the summer, on this very site, you were all, rightly, asking for defenders to be signed. So why is Adkins given a pass for not doing that? Three goalkeepers in six games, what excuse have you got for that? Lambert on the bench twice, what was the point of that? Hopefully you can enlighten us, as Nigel didn't really answer that question when asked. There are some Saints fans who treat this as a popularity contest, they like Adkins as a person so there going to round the wagons. We are heading back down, this is not down to bad luck or injuries, it's purely down to bad management![/p][/quote]Not fooling anyone mate, give it up, we have been over this subject matter ad nauseam, you not saying anything that hasn't already been thoroughly discussed, give it a rest please.[/p][/quote]You responded to my post! What is this not fooling anyone? Some of you lot take this way to seriously & when someone offers an opinion you don't like you act like a bunch of yokels with pitch forks. Very sad![/p][/quote]I responded to your post isn't that what trolls and WUMs require to feed their ego? I do take my Club seriously so if anyone posts derogatory, or misinformed criticism, I am honour bound to respond. I am defending Nigel Adkins because he can't do it for himself, I happen to think he is the right man to carry us forward given the chance.

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season! Trying three GKs in the first six games shows a manger who hasn't settled on a keeper. That should have been done & dusted by the end of pre season. This weeks keeper is a twenty year old, whose experience is made up of 20 appearances for Gillingham. Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect
So what stopped Adkins buying some experienced players instead of spending on attacking players? You people will make any excuse for this guy. If you can't see that this guy got it wrong in the summer and continues to do so, then I'd like to hear why we look out of our depth. And by the way, in the summer West Ham strengthened in the areas they needed to.

Simple mathematics tells us that a team we finished above in the Championship, is much better equipped this year, why?

Throughout the summer, on this very site, you were all, rightly, asking for defenders to be signed. So why is Adkins given a pass for not doing that?

Three goalkeepers in six games, what excuse have you got for that? Lambert on the bench twice, what was the point of that? Hopefully you can enlighten us, as Nigel didn't really answer that question when asked.

There are some Saints fans who treat this as a popularity contest, they like Adkins as a person so there going to round the wagons. We are heading back down, this is not down to bad luck or injuries, it's purely down to bad management!
Not fooling anyone mate, give it up, we have been over this subject matter ad nauseam, you not saying anything that hasn't already been thoroughly discussed, give it a rest please.
You responded to my post! What is this not fooling anyone? Some of you lot take this way to seriously & when someone offers an opinion you don't like you act like a bunch of yokels with pitch forks. Very sad!
I responded to your post isn't that what trolls and WUMs require to feed their ego? I do take my Club seriously so if anyone posts derogatory, or misinformed criticism, I am honour bound to respond. I am defending Nigel Adkins because he can't do it for himself, I happen to think he is the right man to carry us forward given the chance. You don't agree fair enough, but I strongly urge you to consider the possible alternatives, because despite hours of discussion on these forums, not one satisfactory alternative has been put forward, if you have a specific suggestion please enlighten us and we can follow it up and discuss it's merits, but just to come on here **** with no ideas of your own is just wasting everyones time.

The draw was not fantastic or ideal. I think though there is a feeling that the issues are being dealt with.

Saturday's team was one that really motivated me and other fans that I spoke to. It is almost as though NC and NA went through the DE website posts, went through tapes of Uncle Dave's commentaries and low and behold there it was rightly or wrongly ...... the fans franken-team.

Fans wanted it - here it is.

Rodriguez should not play with Lambert - Done

Guly should be dropped all together - Done

Shaw should start instead of Fox - Done

Ramirez should come in and Cork should come in instead of Davis - Done

Lambert should play the full 90 minutes - Done

- There should be no substitutions which interrupt our ascendancy - Done

For one game at least, there was a definite shift in direction. It is not down to the fans of course, but in this change of direction, "together as one" means more, the result and performance were pretty good and we have every reason to feel optimistic come QPR.

COYRs!!!!!
Spot on! The Saints fans who keep singing his name are a joke! I think they do it so they can get some attention from the national press, who usually mention that he has the backing of the fans. Nobody is saying boo him, but to praise him, for what? Not settling on a GK before the season starts, having all summer to put together a decent defense, shipping off Billy Sharp or, twice leaving Lambert on the bench. This burning desire to show,"look how faithful we are" is a little on the sad side, no?
It's called "support".

Perhaps we appreciate a manager who has brought us so far so soon.

Also, shipping Billy Sharp off was one of his better decisions. Sharp is simply not good enough for the Premiership.
With the resources Adkins had, Bagpuss would have got us back to back promotions. And the last one may not have come down to the last day of the season!

Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals!

Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee.

My idea would be for Nicola to start compiling a shortlist of possible candidates, which he is probably already doing. A lot of Saints fans have a lemming mentality. You're defending a manager who has performed poorly, end of story! You don't want to look at other alternatives, fair enough. But I don't agree & I will express my opinion if you like it or not.

In actual fact I think you are speaking from your backside & it's plebs like you who are happy for us to be known as a nice little club who always play attractive football. Sorry, I want more for this club!

Now he's a Premier league goalkeeper, seriously? Poor old Clyne is twenty one and he's thrown in to play with the three stooges. How can anyone expect us not to let in a lot of goals! Bill Sharp bought for 1.8 mill, 5 months later adios, why buy him in the first place? It's not like he was a regular starter. We had already bought Lee. Jay has potential but doesn't look ready for the Premiership, he should have been blooded slowly. And by the way Do Prado and Punchoen are also not Premiership standard, why not try to get rid of those two? To me Adkins made SFC's bed in the pre season, if you and the rest want to lie in it, be my guest. If I do a bad job in my profession, I'm out. Because Nigel Adkins is a nice bloke he should be protected? Our problems this season have been down to bad decisions, not injuries or bad luck. We look out of our depth. West Ham came up through the play offs, they are sixth, why? Good planning & decision making![/p][/quote]no because they came down from the premier league .and the players have been there before ,so that is why your statement is incorrect[/p][/quote]So what stopped Adkins buying some experienced players instead of spending on attacking players? You people will make any excuse for this guy. If you can't see that this guy got it wrong in the summer and continues to do so, then I'd like to hear why we look out of our depth. And by the way, in the summer West Ham strengthened in the areas they needed to. Simple mathematics tells us that a team we finished above in the Championship, is much better equipped this year, why? Throughout the summer, on this very site, you were all, rightly, asking for defenders to be signed. So why is Adkins given a pass for not doing that? Three goalkeepers in six games, what excuse have you got for that? Lambert on the bench twice, what was the point of that? Hopefully you can enlighten us, as Nigel didn't really answer that question when asked. There are some Saints fans who treat this as a popularity contest, they like Adkins as a person so there going to round the wagons. We are heading back down, this is not down to bad luck or injuries, it's purely down to bad management![/p][/quote]Not fooling anyone mate, give it up, we have been over this subject matter ad nauseam, you not saying anything that hasn't already been thoroughly discussed, give it a rest please.[/p][/quote]You responded to my post! What is this not fooling anyone? Some of you lot take this way to seriously & when someone offers an opinion you don't like you act like a bunch of yokels with pitch forks. Very sad![/p][/quote]I responded to your post isn't that what trolls and WUMs require to feed their ego? I do take my Club seriously so if anyone posts derogatory, or misinformed criticism, I am honour bound to respond. I am defending Nigel Adkins because he can't do it for himself, I happen to think he is the right man to carry us forward given the chance. You don't agree fair enough, but I strongly urge you to consider the possible alternatives, because despite hours of discussion on these forums, not one satisfactory alternative has been put forward, if you have a specific suggestion please enlighten us and we can follow it up and discuss it's merits, but just to come on here **** with no ideas of your own is just wasting everyones time.[/p][/quote]My idea would be for Nicola to start compiling a shortlist of possible candidates, which he is probably already doing. A lot of Saints fans have a lemming mentality. You're defending a manager who has performed poorly, end of story! You don't want to look at other alternatives, fair enough. But I don't agree & I will express my opinion if you like it or not. In actual fact I think you are speaking from your backside & it's plebs like you who are happy for us to be known as a nice little club who always play attractive football. Sorry, I want more for this club! redandy10

I think Adkins needs longer, but who would you go for out of interest as a replacement?

I AM NOT A LEMMING,and I don't think backing our manager is about a popularity contest.It is about trust and loyalty, it's our allegiance to saints.NA has dealt his pack and theirs not many jacks, but he's got to get on with it and make the best of his hand.

Rafael knows the league and hjas the experience. For myself, should the worst come to the worst, I would say Roberto Martizez needs a new challenge.

Sorry got to go to bed, caught myself dreaming there for a moment!!!!!

I look forward to whoooping QPR on Saturday. In Adkins I trust, and I am sure it will come good. Ferguson almost got sacked early on at Man U and look what happened there,

After ploughing through this thread to decanter the sensible comments (and occasional decent banter with some of the more intelligent Pompey fans), I dunno whether I can be @rsed to read the next thread. It has 283 comments so far, and I bet the vast majority are made by these WUMs.

I still will though, my support for the lads in red is insurmountable.
