Adkins: Home clashes are a must-win for Saints

First published in Saints News

Nigel Adkins is upbeat as his side prepares for the two make-or-break fixtures that could determine the rest of the season.

Defeat at Liverpool brought Saints' four game unbeaten streak to an end, but the manager says he has taken positives from the performance.

Saints now host relegation rivals Reading and Sunderland at St Mary’s before Christmas.

Adkins’ men have a second half of the season schedule that sees them having to play away to all bar one of the teams that surround them in the bottom eight.

They will be at home to teams currently in the top half of the table with the exception of QPR and Liverpool.

That means the importance of the next two games cannot be underestimated.

Reading have only won once in 14 Premier League games this season – at home to Everton last month – while Sunderland only boast two wins from the same amount of games.

“We’re back at St Mary’s and home games are always important and will always be highlighted,”said Adkins ahead of Reading’s visit this Saturday.

“We’ve been outstanding at St Mary’s and played some really good football, dominating games.

“That’s where we’ve got to make sure we strive to pick up the three points in every game.

“The next game is a derby game against Reading. It will be a full house, a great atmosphere and a game that the players will be looking forward to.”

Adkins is pleased that his side are now in with a shout in games, with the early season struggles seeming to be behind them.

Wins against QPR and Newcastle have done much to help that feeling of upward momentum and, despite a defeat at Anfield, it hasn’t been burst.

Saints have certainly tightened up at the back.

Having shipped an alarming 28 goals in their first 10 games back in the top flight, Saints have only conceded four goals in their last five games.

And three of those were mistakes from young Paulo Gazzaniga.

Adkins is just hoping his side will get back to winning ways for Saturday’s visit of the Royals.

“We are in the mix, we are competitive now and that’s the important thing,” he reflected.

“We’ve got goals in the team, we pass the ball, we’re very creative, we have goals all over the team.

“Against Liverpool we showed another resolve where you’ve got to stick in the game to maybe get something from it.

“Maybe at the start of the camping that wasn’t the case.

“I’ve got to look to keep taking positives out of it for the team and keep moving forward.”

He added: “If we had got something (at Anfield) we would have gone a point behind Liverpool.

“We dominated against Norwich but unfortunately we didn’t get the three points.”

Our chances of winning away are very small, other than against Aston Villa, QPR and Reading.

This means we must win the home games at all costs. It helped us beat Newcastle and get a point against Swansea and Norwich, which we both would have beaten if Gazzaniga hadn't been in goal.

The home advantage is huge, and this can help us win games which will keep us up. I think if we do manage to get a streak of home wins it will affect our away form and we may win some of those games as well.

A reasonable article, but why did you have to single Gazza out again?

It can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly, but be fair, he has made some decent saves in those games as well.

It is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would also have made errors during those games that might also have led to goals going in and matches being lost.

Given that, then while the stark facts do show that Gazza's errors have cost us, the actual truth is that we could well have lost those games anyway, so why keep harping on about it in what is starting to look like a campaign to try to crush a young keeper who, potentially, has the makings of a top class number 1.

If anyone feels the need to abuse players until their confidence is crushed then perhaps they should switch to supporting Spurs. Their crowd are masters at doing that, (and very nearly stopped Gareth Bale from becoming the player he is now.)

I think after muscling in three goals against the Mancs, they'll be looking to bring in quite a big physical presence from crosses and corners. So it's important we let them know who's boss with some legal but nonetheless bone-crunching challenges right from the get-go. This is mainly because I want to see the headline "Reading: writhing and arthritic" in the next day's paper.

As you say, it can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly and as it is still a very big talking point amongst fans, why shouldn't the Echo mention it?

What is questionable is your assertion that it is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would have made errors during those games.

On what do you base that opinion?
Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games.

Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make.

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper.


I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal.
Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders.

In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him.
Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez.

It was shockingly bad goal keeping.

If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him.

As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him.

I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do.

Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

It's classic Echo 'reporting' tactics. They pick up on a talking point that gets divided opinions from the posters and they shoe-horn it into every article.

That way more people post and their reader figures look better, which in turn improves their advertising revenue.

They did it with the "Adkins might be sacked" talking point and wedged it into every article, and they'll do the same with Gazza until he's either dropped or some other controversial topic comes up.

It's all about making money, not journalism.

A reasonable article, but why did you have to single Gazza out again?

It can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly, but be fair, he has made some decent saves in those games as well.

It is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would also have made errors during those games that might also have led to goals going in and matches being lost.

Given that, then while the stark facts do show that Gazza's errors have cost us, the actual truth is that we could well have lost those games anyway, so why keep harping on about it in what is starting to look like a campaign to try to crush a young keeper who, potentially, has the makings of a top class number 1.

If anyone feels the need to abuse players until their confidence is crushed then perhaps they should switch to supporting Spurs. Their crowd are masters at doing that, (and very nearly stopped Gareth Bale from becoming the player he is now.)

COYR - TOGETHER as ONE
As you say, it can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly and as it is still a very big talking point amongst fans, why shouldn't the Echo mention it?

What is questionable is your assertion that it is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would have made errors during those games.

On what do you base that opinion?
Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games.

Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make.

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper.


I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal.
Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders.

In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him.
Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez.

It was shockingly bad goal keeping.

If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him.

As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him.

I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do.

Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.
Costa Baz..absolutely spot on

We all want him to do well but he does appear a tad flaky. Maybe Kelv should be given a run. Why was Boruc brought in and why is he still around? He's crud.
It's taken a long time but it seems that at last people are realising that I've been making sense for the last 4 weeks BRING BACK KELVO or explain why he is not being picked. Sell Boruc to cannibals priced by the kilo.

I think pron is way too easily available these days. There was a certain romance about the old system whereby people used to just find it lying under a hedge in their local park.

These days, your average nine-year-old is probably already bored by footage of ladies being made air-tight. It can hardly encourage them to respect their female counterparts as their intellectual and social equals.

The game this weekend is a must win. With a two week break until Sunderland, which begins a stint of 4 games in 10days, other teams will be picking up points.Crucial for confidence that we are in touch. With our settling side I am positive like Nige for a great crowd to spur us to a win.

It can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly, but be fair, he has made some decent saves in those games as well.

It is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would also have made errors during those games that might also have led to goals going in and matches being lost.

Given that, then while the stark facts do show that Gazza's errors have cost us, the actual truth is that we could well have lost those games anyway, so why keep harping on about it in what is starting to look like a campaign to try to crush a young keeper who, potentially, has the makings of a top class number 1.

If anyone feels the need to abuse players until their confidence is crushed then perhaps they should switch to supporting Spurs. Their crowd are masters at doing that, (and very nearly stopped Gareth Bale from becoming the player he is now.)

COYR - TOGETHER as ONE
As you say, it can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly and as it is still a very big talking point amongst fans, why shouldn't the Echo mention it?

What is questionable is your assertion that it is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would have made errors during those games.

On what do you base that opinion?
Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games.

Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make.

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper.


I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal.
Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders.

In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him.
Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez.

It was shockingly bad goal keeping.

If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him.

As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him.

I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do.

Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.
We all want him to do well but he does appear a tad flaky. Maybe Kelv should be given a run. Why was Boruc brought in and why is he still around? He's crud.
It's taken a long time but it seems that at last people are realising that I've been making sense for the last 4 weeks BRING BACK KELVO or explain why he is not being picked. Sell Boruc to cannibals priced by the kilo.
Agreed a complete and utter liability. Reading and Sunderland will look at the number of times he spilt the ball against Liverpool and they will be all out to find him out - you can sure they will have players following in every daisy cutter from outside the box and we'll all be soiling our jockeys. To be talking about a premiership keeper like this seems ludicrous. Dropping KD was hasty. Its not just about the keeper for me - many of the signings we have made look like poor judgement - with a couple of obvious exceptions.

Definitely not you mean ?? KD was at fault for at least 4 of the goals at beginning of season don't remember echo slating him, while gaza was at fault for 2 not 3 of the goals recently ( qpr goal might have gone in without him coming ) why the negativity all the time , he is young will make mistakes but has great potential but needs encouragement not panning , well done NA for backing your player

Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?

Reading will have watched our last game, we will also have theirs. They let in 4, we let in 1.
Prem is a hell of a league and every game is difficult to some extent.
Really looking forward to Reading & Sinderland. Not because I expect to win, but they have players I would like to watch, just like every other game. Remember going to games in the last few years and asking, who ?
Pompey say that about their own team now! Sorry couldn't resist that dig!

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper.


I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal.
Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders.

In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him.
Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez.

It was shockingly bad goal keeping.

If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him.

As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him.

I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do.

Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

Oh, looks like I've upset one of the Stepford Wives.

Perhaps when someone has told you what your opinion should be, (you know who I mean) you'll be able to explain it on here.

Strange how someone you and the other wives look up to (Seedhouse) voices similar concerns over Gazza, you all say nothing against him.

Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?
Wrong. I just find you really really boring.

Sounds like you need to sort your chip out.

I have always been a fan of Super Kelv and thought we were very quick to drop him. The best keeper in the Championship has to be an alright keeper in the Prem.

I think Gazza was signed as a replacement for Bart. An investment in the future. However, he was suddenly parachuted in to the first 11 because Kelv showed a bit of weakness at his near post. Boruc was signed after Gazza had taken the number 1 shirt so the club obviously didn't intend to run with Gazza for long but Boruc turned out to be total carp.

I'd bin Boruc now and pick Kelv with Gazza on the bench. In January I would bring in a first choice keeper, put Kelv on the bench and send Gazza out on loan to a Championship side or even Div1 side provided he will be first choice there.

On what do you base that opinion?
Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games.

Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make.

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper.


I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal.
Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders.

In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him.
Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez.

It was shockingly bad goal keeping.

If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him.

As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him.

I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do.

Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

Oh, looks like I've upset one of the Stepford Wives.

Perhaps when someone has told you what your opinion should be, (you know who I mean) you'll be able to explain it on here.

Strange how someone you and the other wives look up to (Seedhouse) voices similar concerns over Gazza, you all say nothing against him.

Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?
Why do you feel the need to be rude to people who disagree with you?
I'm not generally rude to people who have the ability to disagree with my points and put forward a reasoned argument, but when a response is simply ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
which I consider to be rude, why shouldn't I respond with equal rudeness?

The film was released in 1975, and would have played on to 1976. Brilliant!!!!

As you say, it can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly and as it is still a very big talking point amongst fans, why shouldn't the Echo mention it? What is questionable is your assertion that it is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would have made errors during those games. On what do you base that opinion? Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games. Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make. "That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper. I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal. Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders. In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him. Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez. It was shockingly bad goal keeping. If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him. As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him. I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do. Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

It is so ridiculous those that bash Gazza. and blame him for points lost. Yes he did make a mistake against Norwich but he also made some excellent saves against both QPR and Newcastle ,games that we might have lost had he not not performed well.
I am quite sure Nigel Adkins sees a lot more of Gazza in practice and knows his capabilities a lot better than his critics. The last thing he wants to do is to destroy his confidence and more power to Nigel for keeping the 20 year old in goal against Liverpool. At least the Echo is giving the lad credit for this
something the Echo needed to do.
People have been questioning why Tad Lee is conspicuously absent this season but the fact of the matter he has underperformed in practices
We all know that on form the Saints can take on anyone but they dont need so much of the negativity you read from both the Echo and posters who dont give credit to Adkins for what he is achieving and his faith in Gazza to become vour number one goalie.
Why do people have to put undue stress on Adkins & Gazza? Adkins is the best manager the club have had in years and we should all get behind him....sure he and Gazza will make mistakes but lets focus on their successes rather than the few mistakes they make.

I think the Trust bid is dead in the water. They're realising the best fans in the world have basically lied to them about how much money they could afford to pledge and now they're absolutely shittting themselves about a court case they can't afford in which the judge will more than likely set a price for the stadium they can't afford to pay. And they'll then be left with no money to appeal the decision, whereas Chinny will.

The road will then be cleared for Chinny to take back the club, and I should imagine all that will go brilliantly.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper. I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal. Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders. In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him. Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez. It was shockingly bad goal keeping. If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him. As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him. I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do. Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

Oh, looks like I've upset one of the Stepford Wives. Perhaps when someone has told you what your opinion should be, (you know who I mean) you'll be able to explain it on here. Strange how someone you and the other wives look up to (Seedhouse) voices similar concerns over Gazza, you all say nothing against him. Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?
Why do you feel the need to be rude to people who disagree with you?
Stepford Wives, brilliant! That's a keeper!
Agree. Quote of the day or week. They are all clones, and are a bit dizzy, and totally controlled by you know who? Maybe they all get poisoned down the Joshua Tree pub every week. Haha The film was released in 1975, and would have played on to 1976. Brilliant!!!! When is Seed gonna nick their children, and their car keys?? Laughin my arse off here. Hahahahahahahaha
So who comprise the Stepford Wives? Bill,Valliety (odds on that they are same person!) Slugger, Rising, Mush, pup, Mack Chin, little hitler, saintshorse. Any more takers?
I think there's only 4 of them. The others are sub clones. Wahahhhhhaaa. Bill = Velleity Mush = Slugger Angus - haven't sussed his out yet Seed = Seventh day adventist - spaghetti junction of the mind Puppy Osprey = Don (He's quite cuddly though) Are they gonna invite Village Bob..get it.

Precisely. There is literally no point navel gazing and scab picking about what Gazza might and might not have done. He's our keeper and so we back him 100%.

What's important for fans is that we keep our spirits up and lift the team forward. And if your spirits need a lift then just look east for five minutes. What a shitstorm.

It is so ridiculous those that bash Gazza. and blame him for points lost. Yes he did make a mistake against Norwich but he also made some excellent saves against both QPR and Newcastle ,games that we might have lost had he not not performed well.
I am quite sure Nigel Adkins sees a lot more of Gazza in practice and knows his capabilities a lot better than his critics. The last thing he wants to do is to destroy his confidence and more power to Nigel for keeping the 20 year old in goal against Liverpool. At least the Echo is giving the lad credit for this
something the Echo needed to do.
People have been questioning why Tad Lee is conspicuously absent this season but the fact of the matter he has underperformed in practices
We all know that on form the Saints can take on anyone but they dont need so much of the negativity you read from both the Echo and posters who dont give credit to Adkins for what he is achieving and his faith in Gazza to become vour number one goalie.
Why do people have to put undue stress on Adkins & Gazza? Adkins is the best manager the club have had in years and we should all get behind him....sure he and Gazza will make mistakes but lets focus on their successes rather than the few mistakes they make.
You are dead right that we need to get behind the manager and the players - who ever gets picked - and we do.

Sacking Nigel would be a disaster for the club as we have debated at great length recently.

All some are questioning is whether playing a 20 year old in goal when we are scrapping at the bottom of the Prem the right thing to do?

I am quite sure Nigel Adkins sees a lot more of Gazza in practice and knows his capabilities a lot better than his critics. The last thing he wants to do is to destroy his confidence and more power to Nigel for keeping the 20 year old in goal against Liverpool. At least the Echo is giving the lad credit for this
something the Echo needed to do.
People have been questioning why Tad Lee is conspicuously absent this season but the fact of the matter he has underperformed in practices
We all know that on form the Saints can take on anyone but they dont need so much of the negativity you read from both the Echo and posters who dont give credit to Adkins for what he is achieving and his faith in Gazza to become vour number one goalie.
Why do people have to put undue stress on Adkins & Gazza? Adkins is the best manager the club have had in years and we should all get behind him....sure he and Gazza will make mistakes but lets focus on their successes rather than the few mistakes they make.
You are dead right that we need to get behind the manager and the players - who ever gets picked - and we do.

Sacking Nigel would be a disaster for the club as we have debated at great length recently.

All some are questioning is whether playing a 20 year old in goal when we are scrapping at the bottom of the Prem the right thing to do?
I have the same issue with the new One Direction single. I think I can speak for all of us when I say I bloody well love One Direction, and yet they've let Ed f***ing Sheerhan write them a terrible song and they've gone and released it.

And it really is terrible. The essence is "Don't worry, fat girls - Harry will still go out with you and that" and it features acoustic guitars as though they're trying to get on Radio 2. So how do we square the circle of loving One Direction but hating Sheerhan? Who knows...

As for Gazza, I rate him. He just needs to clip his little pony tail off and he'll be the finished product.

Nigel is a good manager and shouldn't be changed.
The facts are that he inherited a good squad of players built up by Alan Pardew from scratch and has reaped the benefits of the Saints Academy.
NA and NC are inexperienced in the transfer market shown by not signing a quality experienced keeper and squandering £19m on two luxury players, one of whom is lazy showing only a touch or two of skill the other useless.
IMO none of Nigel's signings are outstanding.
With £19m they could have bought 4 or 5 experienced quality players who combined with the stalwarts of the last two or three seasons and the academy youngsters, could have made a team fit for the PL and we would now be where West Ham are.
Unless NA and NC are prepared to accept that they need experienced advice in bringing in the right players and getting shot of the wrong ones we could have a repeat of bad signings in in January and I can't see Saints surviving.
Maybe Nigel is beginning to realise he can't survive for ever in the house that Alan built 3 years ago, without carrying out constant repair and renewal, taking the old and worn out to the tip and getting in new and better from Homebase.
Look how often Fergie visits the tip and Homebase.

Had West Ham of had the same start to the season fixtures wise as us they would now be where we are. and vice-versa imo. The confidence a team gets from winning is massive and that showed for us in the first few matches of the season. 6 points from the next 2 games and it's Merry Christmas and a couple of away points at the end of the month would be very welcome

By the way, never let the facts get in the way of your tedious rants. If you look at the squad when Adkins took over in 2010/11 (let's call this "Alan's squad) and look at today's squad (Let's call this Nigel's squad) then there were 35 players in Alan's squad, of whom 9 are left two years later. Hardly a man missing his trips down to Homebase or the tip, is it?

As our resident connoisseur of print St Retford are you as saddened as me to see that this is the last day the Dandy comes off the press? I blame Leveson who said: "Absolutely all the stories in this publication are just made up."
Is that true? Has Desperate Dan 'migrated online' or have we seen that last of his like?

Is the Beano safe?

Sometimes I despair at new technology. Wasn't the world a better place before the internet came along and ruined everything?
Yes, Desperate Dan is done in print after today and I somehow can't see him making a living in cyberspace.

I'm currently checking Solent Interiors out. I quote: 'credit rating is suspended' and 'This Company appears financially valueless.'

They have £100 issued share capital and a negative net worth. Two of my friends own partitioning companies and another is an installer. None have heard of this company and question their ability to do a job of this quality.

As you say, it can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly and as it is still a very big talking point amongst fans, why shouldn't the Echo mention it? What is questionable is your assertion that it is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would have made errors during those games. On what do you base that opinion? Are you not aware that for the last two seasons Davis was rated (by his own peers) the best goal keeper in the league he was playing in, something he would not have achieved if he was as error prone as Gaaza has been in the last 4 games. Some people need to take a reality check and accept that Gazza has not yet even been called upon to make anything other than routine saves, saves that we would expect any other keeper at this level to make. "That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper. I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal. Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders. In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him. Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez. It was shockingly bad goal keeping. If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him. As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him. I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do. Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Oh, looks like I've upset one of the Stepford Wives. Perhaps when someone has told you what your opinion should be, (you know who I mean) you'll be able to explain it on here. Strange how someone you and the other wives look up to (Seedhouse) voices similar concerns over Gazza, you all say nothing against him. Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?
Why do you feel the need to be rude to people who disagree with you?
Stepford Wives, brilliant! That's a keeper!
Agree. Quote of the day or week. They are all clones, and are a bit dizzy, and totally controlled by you know who? Maybe they all get poisoned down the Joshua Tree pub every week. Haha The film was released in 1975, and would have played on to 1976. Brilliant!!!! When is Seed gonna nick their children, and their car keys?? Laughin my arse off here. Hahahahahahahaha
So who comprise the Stepford Wives? Bill,Valliety (odds on that they are same person!) Slugger, Rising, Mush, pup, Mack Chin, little hitler, saintshorse. Any more takers?
I think there's only 4 of them. The others are sub clones.

Wahahhhhhaaa.

Bill = Velleity
Mush = Slugger
Angus - haven't sussed his out yet
Seed = Seventh day adventist - spaghetti junction of the mind
Puppy
Osprey = Don (He's quite cuddly though)

Are they gonna invite Village Bob..get it. Stepford Bob. Wahaha

"That" save he made against Newcastle, although decent and important, was a routine save, for a top flight goal keeper. I saw him make 3 routine saves, at Anfield, yet on each occasion the ball got away from him and ran free in front of his goal. Potentially, he turned 3 routine saves into a Liverpool tap in, being rescued twice by his defenders. In the same game, he allowed a long kick from Reina to bounce in the penalty area, almost level with the penalty spot, yet still allowed Suarez to get to the ball before him. Look at the highlights and check out his "attempt" to get to the ball, or should that be his attempt not to get clattered by Suarez. It was shockingly bad goal keeping. If he is the best we have, then God knows what level Davis has sunk to to be considered inferior to him. As for your comment about people abusing players, undermining their confidence, I am not abusing him. I have looked at the facts and given my honest opinion, based on what I have seen him do. Now it's up to him to prove me wrong.

Oh, looks like I've upset one of the Stepford Wives. Perhaps when someone has told you what your opinion should be, (you know who I mean) you'll be able to explain it on here. Strange how someone you and the other wives look up to (Seedhouse) voices similar concerns over Gazza, you all say nothing against him. Is it because he's given some of you free access to Saints Hospitality in the past, and you don't want to queer it in the future?
Why do you feel the need to be rude to people who disagree with you?
Stepford Wives, brilliant! That's a keeper!
Agree. Quote of the day or week. They are all clones, and are a bit dizzy, and totally controlled by you know who? Maybe they all get poisoned down the Joshua Tree pub every week. Haha The film was released in 1975, and would have played on to 1976. Brilliant!!!! When is Seed gonna nick their children, and their car keys?? Laughin my arse off here. Hahahahahahahaha
So who comprise the Stepford Wives? Bill,Valliety (odds on that they are same person!) Slugger, Rising, Mush, pup, Mack Chin, little hitler, saintshorse. Any more takers?
I think there's only 4 of them. The others are sub clones. Wahahhhhhaaa. Bill = Velleity Mush = Slugger Angus - haven't sussed his out yet Seed = Seventh day adventist - spaghetti junction of the mind Puppy Osprey = Don (He's quite cuddly though) Are they gonna invite Village Bob..get it. Stepford Bob. Wahaha Regular poisening down the Joshua Tree Pub. WaaaHahahahaHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA I don't need any more valium today. Waahahhahaha
A good list! Forgot about Angus. Osprey rules!

It can't be denied that his mistakes have proved costly, but be fair, he has made some decent saves in those games as well. It is just as likely that Davis or Boruc would also have made errors during those games that might also have led to goals going in and matches being lost. Given that, then while the stark facts do show that Gazza's errors have cost us, the actual truth is that we could well have lost those games anyway, so why keep harping on about it in what is starting to look like a campaign to try to crush a young keeper who, potentially, has the makings of a top class number 1. If anyone feels the need to abuse players until their confidence is crushed then perhaps they should switch to supporting Spurs. Their crowd are masters at doing that, (and very nearly stopped Gareth Bale from becoming the player he is now.)

Nigel is a good manager and shouldn't be changed.
The facts are that he inherited a good squad of players built up by Alan Pardew from scratch and has reaped the benefits of the Saints Academy.
NA and NC are inexperienced in the transfer market shown by not signing a quality experienced keeper and squandering £19m on two luxury players, one of whom is lazy showing only a touch or two of skill the other useless.
IMO none of Nigel's signings are outstanding.
With £19m they could have bought 4 or 5 experienced quality players who combined with the stalwarts of the last two or three seasons and the academy youngsters, could have made a team fit for the PL and we would now be where West Ham are.
Unless NA and NC are prepared to accept that they need experienced advice in bringing in the right players and getting shot of the wrong ones we could have a repeat of bad signings in in January and I can't see Saints surviving.
Maybe Nigel is beginning to realise he can't survive for ever in the house that Alan built 3 years ago, without carrying out constant repair and renewal, taking the old and worn out to the tip and getting in new and better from Homebase.
Look how often Fergie visits the tip and Homebase.
I agree about the summer signings being perhaps over valued.
JAY ROD has so far struggled at this level.Compared to say MICHU at swansea JR is over valued and certainly under performing in the scoring department.
Gazza i assumed at the time was brought in as a replacement for previous deputy keeper BILAKOWSKI.I and most others expected that barring injury Kelvin Davis would be the number 1 choice this season.We all know that he had a tough baptism of fire back at the start of the season but you don't become a bad keeper overnight.
Nigel Adkins was a goalie himself so i assume that when it comes to decisions regarding that position he knows what he is doing.
RAMIREZ didn't come on the cheap but i think that he has that WOW factor that will bring us a few wins during the campaign.
STEVE DAVIS has done it before at VILLA and FULHAM so is our most experienced player at premiership level..A steady eddie maybe but a useful man to have available for selection.Whether nigel starts with him or calls him into action from the bench.
MAYUKA has played champions league football at his former club and at international level has won the Africa Nations cup.I think he should be given a run out against Reading.Last season away from home Steve DE Ridder came off the bench and slayed the Reading defence with his pace and got us an equaliser late in the game.MAYUKA can do the same for us on saturday and hopefully go one better and score us the winner.With the Africa Nations cup competition looming large i expect that he will be off to that competition after XMAS so to get our moneys worth out of him he should be used often between now and the new year.
Yoshida i feel still needs time to adjust to the premiership so i think with a bit more preparation we could have bought better.Our last great team was assembled by Gordon Strachan and had 4 great Scandinavian internationals in its ranks.CLAUS L,MICHAEL SVENSON,ANDERS SVENNSON, AND ANTI NIEMI. Great pros and they all came relatively cheap.Why isn't our scouting net work bringing in any SCANDINAVIAN players.
Nathan Clyne is probably our best buy this summer looks class but if the unthinkable happens and we go down will we be able to hang on to him.
Finally in last weeks FA CUP match v CARLISLE , BOURNEMOUTH were not allowed to play LEE BARNARD.His loan is up in January.Does anyone think that he will come back to ST MARYS and if he does how often is he likely to be played.
Interesting times ahead I think.

Please go and witness the bile being presented by Seed on our own site - trying to put off the real fans in getting hold of their own club.

If you need to know why he is so loathed by almost all of our fans here, and why we are all here- go and see.

He is posting under the "Realist",

Then compare the nicer tone of the poster - "Return of the seed" on the same thread.

Seed house the unrepentant --- thanks for your response to my posting.
It seems to me that if your partitioning friends are correct about Solent Interiors, then Cortese showed the same poor judgement in selecting them to do the contracting work as he did in wasting £19m in the transfer market.
If what you say about the finances of Solent Interiors is correct it makes me very sad, although I prefer to accept the word of their lawyer that they were a well maaged, profitable company.
Many good companies have gone to the wall and many good workers have been made redundant,causing their families to suffer, not because they were inefficient or lazy but because the shysters at the top of big companies refused to pay them on time.
In the case of that shyster Cortese, having to be taken to Court TWICE!
Anyone who condones the action of these shysters are as guilty as they are and IMO beneath content.
I hope you are never thrown out of work by the actions of the likes of shyster Cortese --- maybe if you were you would take a different view.
I may have my critics but at least I can distinguish between right and wrong, the Court decided TWICE Solent Interiors were RIGHT and shyster Cortese was WRONG and with right on my side I will never stop banging the drum exposing him for the shyster he is.

I can assure you the debts shown by their last filed accounts are not going to be resolved by a £60k payment. You can accept the word of their lawyer or you can check them out yourself. If you don't have access to one of the credit checking companies online then go to Companies House and download their accounts for £1.

I have my reservations about the way NC handles certain things - one of my friends who was asked to do the refit the previous summer pulled out after a few meetings as he could see where it was going - but I can also see and appreciate the great things he has achieved.

Your view is not balanced. You see no good in the man despite back to back promotions, smashing our transfer record twice and investing very heavily in our youth academy. I have not seen investment like that in SFC before.

the goals Gazzaniga conceded at QPR and Liverpool weren't his fault, both times our centre backs lost their men. Basic errors you shouldn't get at this level. His save against Newcastle was not 'routine', it was world-class and as good as anything i've witnessed at St Mary's. Stick with him and sort out the cb's instead.

Theborer you are right. Some on this site think NC can do no wrong and yet there have been errors of judgment.

However, you are no different to them, just the opposite extreme. You say he can do no right - yet the proof is there for all to see that he has achieved many great things.

Can you acknowledge that Saints have been successful under his tenure?

I'm not so sure.

It's only recently that he's developed his mental illness (I'm serious) that manifests itself as an irrational hatred of Nicola Cortese. Before that he was just a slightly self-important twit who thought he was perfect.

I know he isn't perfect (because I AM perfect, so I know everything - ask Mrs Velleity).

He was once a Saints fan and will be once again if he ever takes my advice and sees his GP about his problems. Once he stops seeing everything as black or white, perfect or horrific, he'll begin again to see the beauty in the world and particularly in the Saints.

I am quite sure Nigel Adkins sees a lot more of Gazza in practice and knows his capabilities a lot better than his critics. The last thing he wants to do is to destroy his confidence and more power to Nigel for keeping the 20 year old in goal against Liverpool. At least the Echo is giving the lad credit for this
something the Echo needed to do.
People have been questioning why Tad Lee is conspicuously absent this season but the fact of the matter he has underperformed in practices
We all know that on form the Saints can take on anyone but they dont need so much of the negativity you read from both the Echo and posters who dont give credit to Adkins for what he is achieving and his faith in Gazza to become vour number one goalie.
Why do people have to put undue stress on Adkins & Gazza? Adkins is the best manager the club have had in years and we should all get behind him....sure he and Gazza will make mistakes but lets focus on their successes rather than the few mistakes they make.

Velleity would have me committed for what? -- stating things that are abundantly true about Mr Cortese.
True --- that he defied British justice once and had to be hauled before the court a second time to pay a paltry £60k debt, amounting to one tenth of his salary.
I'm not sure whether he has paid it yet --- those who know please advise .
True --- sacking loyal Saints programme sellers at the drop of a hat, many with 25 years service.
True --- falling out with organisations and individuals that have served Saints loyally through thick and thin, such as the Daily Echo and the great MLT.
True -- sacking one of the best managers Saints have ever had, Alan Pardew, who took us to the brink of the play offs, despite a 10 point deduction and winning the JPT---a day Saints supporters won't forget the man who built a squad from which NA reaped the benefit and glory.
Any fat cat who is taken to court TWICE to pay a debt, is IMO a shyster and beneath contempt as are the see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil Happy Clappers who support such behaviour.
I wonder, if he weighed up the pros and cons, whose side Jesus would be on --- NC's or mine?? --- clearly not NC's --- otherwise Saints wouldn't be second from rock bottom!!

Never said I'd have you committed. Just gave you some serious advice that you might want to see your GP about what is a clearly unhealthy obsession. The problem is not WHAT you state about him, it's that it makes up 90% of your posts.

Just to clarify, I don't think he does no evil. I think, like most people that there is good and bad in him.

I'm being genuine, by the way, you need to see someone. Start with your GP.

Agreed! And I haven't even met you, Seed, let alone had hospitality off you (you tight g!t)

For me, it's QPR, Villa and Sunderland who look most likely.

But Reading lack strength in depth and could struggle in the spring.

Baddesley Bill --- thanks for pointing out my error as to Saints' position in the league, I accept I was wrong and that Saints are third from bottom and not second from bottom as I stated.
However my postings regarding NA and NC's inexperience in the transfer market, by IMO wasting £19m signing two overrated players, who we didn't need and didn't want, met with little opposition, even from the Happy Clappers.
I can only conclude that most posters on here, agree with me, that the £19m would have been far better spent on an experienced goalkeeper and 3 or 4 good midfielders /defenders.
I think Redknapp is a shyster of the highest order and the farther he stays away from SMS the better but IMO NA and NC could learn a lot from him in the transfer market.
Many posters criticise Nigel for his choice and timing of substitutions which seems to bear out my point that if Nigel has difficulty in choosing who to take off and bring on during 90 minutes, to strenghthen the team, what confidence can he engender among supporters as to his decisions who to sign and who to sell over a whole season?
I hope I am wrong but NA and NC's inexperience in spotting weaknesses in the team and signing good players to ill them, could prove to be Saints undoing this season.
January and the following couple of months will determine this one way or the other.

I think the Trust bid is dead in the water. They're realising the best fans in the world have basically lied to them about how much money they could afford to pledge and now they're absolutely shittting themselves about a court case they can't afford in which the judge will more than likely set a price for the stadium they can't afford to pay. And they'll then be left with no money to appeal the decision, whereas Chinny will.

The road will then be cleared for Chinny to take back the club, and I should imagine all that will go brilliantly.

Seed house the unrepentant --- thanks for your response to my posting.
It seems to me that if your partitioning friends are correct about Solent Interiors, then Cortese showed the same poor judgement in selecting them to do the contracting work as he did in wasting £19m in the transfer market.
If what you say about the finances of Solent Interiors is correct it makes me very sad, although I prefer to accept the word of their lawyer that they were a well maaged, profitable company.
Many good companies have gone to the wall and many good workers have been made redundant,causing their families to suffer, not because they were inefficient or lazy but because the shysters at the top of big companies refused to pay them on time.
In the case of that shyster Cortese, having to be taken to Court TWICE!
Anyone who condones the action of these shysters are as guilty as they are and IMO beneath content.
I hope you are never thrown out of work by the actions of the likes of shyster Cortese --- maybe if you were you would take a different view.
I may have my critics but at least I can distinguish between right and wrong, the Court decided TWICE Solent Interiors were RIGHT and shyster Cortese was WRONG and with right on my side I will never stop banging the drum exposing him for the shyster he is.
Therapy can help in these cases along with electric shock treatment...give it a go..obsessive compulsive fruitcake.

The problem with TB is that we were daft enough to respond to his monotonous, repetitive tripe, once he thinks he has an audience he will redouble his attention seeking efforts, as Seed and Slug keep telling us, ignor him and he will go away. As Velle has pointed out, OCD is a serious problem which needs to be addressed, but that is like gambling and alchohol problems, they have to to be addressed by the victim, we can only offer advice.

As far as the thread is concerned, we seem to have a general concensus of opinion that we are better than Reading at the moment, Saturday will be the judge of that, it will need all of whoever is picked, to be on their mettle, there is no way that Reading will roll over, if we can score early, just for once go for the throat, keep hitting them until they realise that we are not going to be beaten. Just for once avoid those silly errors and we can do it. COME ON YOU REDS, IT IS YOUR TURN FOR MORE GLORY, if you pardon the expression.

Totally agreed.

Villa seem to be suspect under their American regime and we've proved we're better. Just hope they don't go mad in the transfer window.

QPR can go and fcuk themselves - they've tried to buy success and failed. And then have the audacity to sack Sparky and replace him with a pasty faced cockney tart whose accountant is a dog.

I hope Wigan stay up with us, as I like what Dave Whelan has done there.

As for More Glory - they appear to be on here for genuine footy banter (except maybe on this thread, they seem to have just joined in with the idiocy from the trolls/WUMs). If we see more of the former, then I'm happy to reply to them.

Keep the faith

I skimmed over the mockery and abuse to my postings, it is a well known fact that people, particularly those not blessed with much grey matter, resort to this when losing an argument.
Strange though that few posters if any have disagreed, with my view that the £19m spent on two players was money down the drain.
Reading the truth often hurts ---- sorry Happy Clappers!

To put the record straight I disagree with your argument, only time will reveal who is right. We are not sorry Happy Clappers that is an oxymoron.
