Adkins defends J-Rod over diving accusations

Jay Rodriguez goes down under the challenge at Villa Park.

Nigel Adkins

First published in Saints News

Nigel Adkins has defended Jay Rodriguez, admitting there was no contact as he won the decisive penalty at Aston Villa but insisting his man didn’t dive.

Aston Villa were livid as Mark Halsey gave a penalty, converted by Rickie Lambert, that proved to be the difference in the huge relegation clash at Villa Park.

Rodriguez went down in the area without being touched by Edna Stevens but Adkins was adamant his man didn’t dive.

He said: “It’s not a dive.

“The lad would have kicked him.

“At the end of the day the challenge has come in and our player has evaded the challenge and the referee has had a decision to make and the referee has given a penalty.

“If the player hadn’t taken his leg out of the way there would have been clear contact and you can’t disagree with that.

“As there isn’t clear contact, and I’m not disagreeing with that, the referee had a decision to make but we could have had seven or eight this season we haven’t done.”

He added: “It’s a massive win for us away from home against a team close to us in the division.

“We were able to get three points and keep a clean sheet which is very pleasing.”

Absolutely agree over the season so far we are still owed more than we've been given. So although initially embarrassed I happy. Well done JRod if you hadn't taken the leg away could have had it broken. Big win COYR.

Adkins and the so called 'fans' comments above just typify everything that is wrong with modern football.

His player cheated to get a result and he is attempting to justify it.

Disgraceful, but typical and no-one is surprised by it any more.

Jay is not a diver....it's just the media hype and the Wet Spam reporters. Like NA has said he'd have been crocked by the defender otherwise. We see certain top four teams diving more than Tom Daley don't we.

Great Win...Well deserved.

NA said on record he doesn't tolerate diving and his players know that, people at the time watching on stream said that JRod just got his feet in a tangle, wasn't an intentional dive at all, just have to watch later, but the fact we actually got a decision is a miracle in the first place. Maybe Chris Foy the original selected Referee would not have given it, such is fate.

We've been denied a dozen legit penalties at home this season. We might have been given one we shouldn't have today; we'll know more after motd.


I would still prefer that the calls were right, all the time. We'd have had more penalties, as a fair team, and probably have won more games, too.

There's no way to reasonably expect refs to always get it right these days, the game is too fast and the divers are too clever, which leads to second- and third-guessing by refs.

So bring on harsher punishments for clear simulation, and lets start getting some support for the refs with technology. Goal-line cameras for tough goal decisions, and up to three challenges a game for each team on fouls and other decisions where video replay can be studied.

The purists will say no. But football is always evolving (I still remember taking more than three steps while holding the ball was a no-no for keepers, and the game is better for ditching that). Time to move on for video support, too.

Saints would be winners in such an environment. No matter what jrod did today, we play the game right under Adkins.

Well done on the three points, saints.

Wind your neck in fella!! The problem with football is far more complicated than players protecting themselves / taking a dive. No manager will admit that their player is a diver! in the olden days footballs were heavier, the game slower, leg breaking tackles accepted and careers ended abruptly. So you're wrong fella the problem with the modern game and the root of all evil is money not incidents like this. Think what you want our man would have been injured if he hadn't moved his leg. He didn't appeal as far as I could see, so the decisions was the ref's. One injury was enough today, get well soon Luke Shaw. So a vital win today well done for keeping calm and carrying on :-). Or is that so 2012. COYR

Lol. Sorry, pot, kettle , black wouldn't even start to describe fully the irony of a p*mpey fan casting judgment on a saints player. Your club has been revealed as the single most crooked team in football for more than a decade.

Come back when you've been reborn as a non-league side with your record cleansed by liquidation, mate.

I doubt you'll last a season without more scandals as afc portsmouth.

There's no escaping your roots, after all.

.... and you are?

If you're an unhappy Villa fan then here's my honest assessment having watched a live stream and listened to Nigel's interview.
1. There's doubt as to whether the pen was given for THAT tackle anyway. Some suggest it might have been for a foul on Puncheon by Guzen. If so, Nigel has already said it wasn't a foul and I agree.
2. Assuming, however, that it was given for the challenge on Rodriguez, what Nigel is saying makes some sense. I posted earlier that had Rodriguez not moved his right leg back, he would probably have been caught anyway.
3. However, I also posted that I thought (and I still think) that Rodriguez dived. His leg came back, his body fell forwards and the timing was exactly as the mis-timed tackle came in. However, there's huge doubt about that. I could be wrong. So those suggesting Rodriguez should face a punishment for deliberate diving are plain dumb. (Lineker, have you apologised yet?) Rodriguez may well have fallen simply because of his momentum.
4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul. I remember an example when Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Saints, was about to be tackled by a Saints' player (Chris Marsden). Marsden lunged two-footed towards the ball (not the player), but the ball was just in front of Henry, who then dragged the ball back towards himself and jumped backwards with the ball. Thus, Marsden didn't make contact with either the ball or the player and ended up looking a bit silly jumping two footed towards what was the turf between himself and the ball. However, a foul was given and Marsden saw red for dangerous play.

I can understand why Villa fans feel hard done by today but how about the countless late challenges by Villa players (esp. in the second half) which gave away the initiative on many occasions? Example? The one which left Shaw on a stretcher. It was hard to see if there was any intent, but the player did nothing to avoid following through on Shaw, yet play carried on and was only stopped (to Villa's annoyance) when it was clear Shaw was in trouble. On another occasion (maybe first half) Ramirez went for a lose, knee-high ball, won it and a Villa player simply followed through into Ramirez's foot. No foul given! So, don’t blame Halsey for losing, he did all he could to help you.

If you are a Villa fan, I'd stop moaning and start focussing on how you'll keep hold of your 'stars' when you go down.

Well done on the three points, saints.
I disagree so much with the idea of technology being used in footy, I'm afraid. I'm even against goal-line technology.

The rules of the game should be exactly the same for my eleven year old son as for the World Cup final.

People used to be mature enough to accept that you win some, you lose some. We missed three points against Arsenal when Gaston's goal was disallowed; we gained three points against Villa. That's the way it is. It balances out over a season.

The TV pundits could help by trying not to analyses every single decision from fourteen camera angles. It can't possibly do any good and erodes trust in the officials.

Also, there's a rule to cover this: the ref's decision is final. Thus, it WAS a penalty, just as Ramirez's "goal" last week wasn't a goal.

On another topic, anyone else take exception at Tony Cottee's comments on Sky about players feigning injury, just before Shaw was stretchered off. Didn't have the decency to admit he had called it wrong.

It's good news week
Rickies scored a goal somewhere
Creating a great atmosphere
Now we are climbing high

It's good news week
The judge is folding sh-te Pompey
A team nobody wants to see
Now that their end is nigh

Have u heard the news
Wat did it say?
We've won again
Won't hear from the Skunts today

It's good news week
Skunts are finding pathetic ways
To stop us getting all the praise
But we know we're the best

It's good news week
Sh-te are in the bottom 2

MGRA says...

There is a difference between cheating ( Gareth Bale , Suarez , Cole etc etc ) and evading a tackle to stop contact. The later is not pre-thought, the split second decision is "I am not going to be crocked".. this is different from Bale-and-co who plan their cheating carefully before hand and actually hone the skills to con the referee. Only people who really know the game of football and have played for some years will know what I am talking about. What happened today was dubious as to whether technically it was a penalty but it was not pre-meditated cheating....

4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul.

That is a reasonable argument but few would agree, and I have heard it said by a Referee in the past, that a foul was given for intent, whether actual contact had been made was not the problem. I would rather that there was actual contact, no one could argue about it then.

I would still prefer that the calls were right, all the time. We'd have had more penalties, as a fair team, and probably have won more games, too.

There's no way to reasonably expect refs to always get it right these days, the game is too fast and the divers are too clever, which leads to second- and third-guessing by refs.

So bring on harsher punishments for clear simulation, and lets start getting some support for the refs with technology. Goal-line cameras for tough goal decisions, and up to three challenges a game for each team on fouls and other decisions where video replay can be studied.

The purists will say no. But football is always evolving (I still remember taking more than three steps while holding the ball was a no-no for keepers, and the game is better for ditching that). Time to move on for video support, too.

Did you know that Bury have won the FA cup twice. In some people's eyes that makes them bigger than us. The way some people twist facts to attempt to justify the unjustifiable is pretty amazing. Bury are a Manchester club and are as significant to ManU as the skunts are to us.

Dangerous play should always be penalized. Contact is irrelevant, certainly not desired or necessary for a foul to be awarded.
The ref made a brave but correct decision.
A foul could have been given for the Puncheon too, desperate defending.

Ok, although not Football I am a fully qualified cricket umpire, and stand to a reasonable level of league cricket in the South West.

Like any referee/umpire/lines
man etc I give what I see (or in cricket hear) at that point in time with the "facts" that I have witnessed.

Do I get things wrong? Totally, a batsman will moan to me when he hasn't nicked it, but they never moan when they have and I don't give it.

A bowler will moan about an LBW not given but he won't moan if I miss a inside edge onto his pad and give it

What I am trying to say is simple, people cheat, push the boundaries whatever you want to call it to win, to get a result for their team.

It is all JRod has done, it is all any of the 100's of players across the Premier League will do to get a result.

Did Halsey get it wrong? who knows I won't till I see it but I would love to see it real time no replays etc

Hansen et al will have poured over it a 100 times already for MOTD so their views later are nonsense, they have had a chance to look at it from 20 odd angles

It was an indisputable pen - a 22 carat solid gold decision. What's more Jay is as honest a player as they come - I'm sure I read in the Times that he's Chairman of the Football Association Truth, Scrupulousness and Probity Committee.

Terrible day for the resident WUMs and trolls. It's bad enough for them us winning and winning hands down fair 'n square makes it even worse. They will have to take their sick sociopathic personalities somewhere else to seek attention and alleviate their deep seated feelings of inadequacy (likely caused by bullying in childhood). I expect soon they'll be on the Villa site looking for unhappiness to feed on.

Diving accusations are irrelevant - if the Ref (who is only human) gives it for right or wrong then it is a penalty and has to be accepted.
Anyway I would have accepted a tally of 21 points from 21 games a couple of months ago as an indication we can stay up. It was a vital 3 points today to get to a point a game and although it is far too early to think we are safe matters continue to improve.

.... and you are?

If you're an unhappy Villa fan then here's my honest assessment having watched a live stream and listened to Nigel's interview.
1. There's doubt as to whether the pen was given for THAT tackle anyway. Some suggest it might have been for a foul on Puncheon by Guzen. If so, Nigel has already said it wasn't a foul and I agree.
2. Assuming, however, that it was given for the challenge on Rodriguez, what Nigel is saying makes some sense. I posted earlier that had Rodriguez not moved his right leg back, he would probably have been caught anyway.
3. However, I also posted that I thought (and I still think) that Rodriguez dived. His leg came back, his body fell forwards and the timing was exactly as the mis-timed tackle came in. However, there's huge doubt about that. I could be wrong. So those suggesting Rodriguez should face a punishment for deliberate diving are plain dumb. (Lineker, have you apologised yet?) Rodriguez may well have fallen simply because of his momentum.
4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul. I remember an example when Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Saints, was about to be tackled by a Saints' player (Chris Marsden). Marsden lunged two-footed towards the ball (not the player), but the ball was just in front of Henry, who then dragged the ball back towards himself and jumped backwards with the ball. Thus, Marsden didn't make contact with either the ball or the player and ended up looking a bit silly jumping two footed towards what was the turf between himself and the ball. However, a foul was given and Marsden saw red for dangerous play.

I can understand why Villa fans feel hard done by today but how about the countless late challenges by Villa players (esp. in the second half) which gave away the initiative on many occasions? Example? The one which left Shaw on a stretcher. It was hard to see if there was any intent, but the player did nothing to avoid following through on Shaw, yet play carried on and was only stopped (to Villa's annoyance) when it was clear Shaw was in trouble. On another occasion (maybe first half) Ramirez went for a lose, knee-high ball, won it and a Villa player simply followed through into Ramirez's foot. No foul given! So, don’t blame Halsey for losing, he did all he could to help you.

If you are a Villa fan, I'd stop moaning and start focussing on how you'll keep hold of your 'stars' when you go down.
Dangerous Play is an indirect freekick not a penalty.

Dangerous Play is an indirect freekick not a penalty.
Apart from a back pass, when was the last time you saw an attacking team get an indirect free kick in the penalty area?

Not that I agree that all fouls in the area SHOULD be penalties, but whatever the rules are, fouls are always penalties these days.

.... and you are?

If you're an unhappy Villa fan then here's my honest assessment having watched a live stream and listened to Nigel's interview.
1. There's doubt as to whether the pen was given for THAT tackle anyway. Some suggest it might have been for a foul on Puncheon by Guzen. If so, Nigel has already said it wasn't a foul and I agree.
2. Assuming, however, that it was given for the challenge on Rodriguez, what Nigel is saying makes some sense. I posted earlier that had Rodriguez not moved his right leg back, he would probably have been caught anyway.
3. However, I also posted that I thought (and I still think) that Rodriguez dived. His leg came back, his body fell forwards and the timing was exactly as the mis-timed tackle came in. However, there's huge doubt about that. I could be wrong. So those suggesting Rodriguez should face a punishment for deliberate diving are plain dumb. (Lineker, have you apologised yet?) Rodriguez may well have fallen simply because of his momentum.
4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul. I remember an example when Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Saints, was about to be tackled by a Saints' player (Chris Marsden). Marsden lunged two-footed towards the ball (not the player), but the ball was just in front of Henry, who then dragged the ball back towards himself and jumped backwards with the ball. Thus, Marsden didn't make contact with either the ball or the player and ended up looking a bit silly jumping two footed towards what was the turf between himself and the ball. However, a foul was given and Marsden saw red for dangerous play.

I can understand why Villa fans feel hard done by today but how about the countless late challenges by Villa players (esp. in the second half) which gave away the initiative on many occasions? Example? The one which left Shaw on a stretcher. It was hard to see if there was any intent, but the player did nothing to avoid following through on Shaw, yet play carried on and was only stopped (to Villa's annoyance) when it was clear Shaw was in trouble. On another occasion (maybe first half) Ramirez went for a lose, knee-high ball, won it and a Villa player simply followed through into Ramirez's foot. No foul given! So, don’t blame Halsey for losing, he did all he could to help you.

If you are a Villa fan, I'd stop moaning and start focussing on how you'll keep hold of your 'stars' when you go down.
Dangerous Play is an indirect freekick not a penalty.
Apart from a back pass, when was the last time you saw an attacking team get an indirect free kick in the penalty area?

Not that I agree that all fouls in the area SHOULD be penalties, but whatever the rules are, fouls are always penalties these days.
Deliberate obstruction used to get an indirect free kick, doesn't seem to be on the intinerary of Officials these days.

At the end of the day, you play to the ref - if he thinks its a penalty, then it's a penalty and thats it.

until they bring in a TMO with video replay technology which will have an influence on the refs decision, all the screaming and shouting in the world isn't going to make a blind bit of difference.


For me: Yes it was a dive. However if he had not bought his foot back when he did, his ankle would be garnished with stud marks. Would it have been a penalty then?
who knows? it didn't happen, the penalty was awarded and we got 3 points in the bag.

It always amazes me that players go running up to the ref and protest like they do - the ref never changes his mind.

And as for the Skates coming on here and accusing Saints of being cheaters.......
well....

1) It's very childish
2) Hypocritical in the extreme (must we remind you again of how you bought the FA cup?)
3) I refer you to my comments above - you play to the ref, if you don't agree with his decision - tough. get up the other end and equalise.
Refs are human and you won't agree with every decision they make. Deal with it and move on.

Don't get me started on obstruction, Osprey. I really hate the way defenders are allowed to 'shepherd' the ball out of play by standing between the ball and opponent. Surely, if you're not playing the ball, you're playing the man, no?

Of course, as soon as the attacker tries to get the ball, he's accused of taking the player from behind.

Sorry, I'll stop grumping there.

Well we got a penalty numb nuts
Thats why saints have one of the best records in the Prem for fair play because we play football like it is meant to be played. All in in all its down to the ref to make tough decisions, sometimes they get it right sometimes they get it wrong. But without them there would be no games of football.

If you're an unhappy Villa fan then here's my honest assessment having watched a live stream and listened to Nigel's interview. 1. There's doubt as to whether the pen was given for THAT tackle anyway. Some suggest it might have been for a foul on Puncheon by Guzen. If so, Nigel has already said it wasn't a foul and I agree. 2. Assuming, however, that it was given for the challenge on Rodriguez, what Nigel is saying makes some sense. I posted earlier that had Rodriguez not moved his right leg back, he would probably have been caught anyway. 3. However, I also posted that I thought (and I still think) that Rodriguez dived. His leg came back, his body fell forwards and the timing was exactly as the mis-timed tackle came in. However, there's huge doubt about that. I could be wrong. So those suggesting Rodriguez should face a punishment for deliberate diving are plain dumb. (Lineker, have you apologised yet?) Rodriguez may well have fallen simply because of his momentum. 4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul. I remember an example when Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Saints, was about to be tackled by a Saints' player (Chris Marsden). Marsden lunged two-footed towards the ball (not the player), but the ball was just in front of Henry, who then dragged the ball back towards himself and jumped backwards with the ball. Thus, Marsden didn't make contact with either the ball or the player and ended up looking a bit silly jumping two footed towards what was the turf between himself and the ball. However, a foul was given and Marsden saw red for dangerous play. I can understand why Villa fans feel hard done by today but how about the countless late challenges by Villa players (esp. in the second half) which gave away the initiative on many occasions? Example? The one which left Shaw on a stretcher. It was hard to see if there was any intent, but the player did nothing to avoid following through on Shaw, yet play carried on and was only stopped (to Villa's annoyance) when it was clear Shaw was in trouble. On another occasion (maybe first half) Ramirez went for a lose, knee-high ball, won it and a Villa player simply followed through into Ramirez's foot. No foul given! So, don’t blame Halsey for losing, he did all he could to help you. If you are a Villa fan, I'd stop moaning and start focussing on how you'll keep hold of your 'stars' when you go down.[/p][/quote]Dangerous Play is an indirect freekick not a penalty.[/p][/quote]Well we got a penalty numb nuts[/p][/quote]Thats why saints have one of the best records in the Prem for fair play because we play football like it is meant to be played.

Not a dive, Jay falls avoiding being kicked. Dangerous play by defender who should have stayed on his feet.
Boruc looked brave but erratic, not sure if he is the answer. Shaw was stretching to keep in the dodgy throw from boric which led to his injury.
Hope Ramirez gets his head up, he's not looking happy.

not heard the commentators version, however if this is true, and i have no reason to think otherwise, then we should start a campaign to get lineker to apologise to Jrod on MOTD. dosent mater if he dived or not, if the ref gave the pen for the foul on punch (after advantage), all Jrod was doing was getting out of the way. i thought when i saw it on MOTD that when on the deck Jrod said `he never touched me` or words like that and looked confused that the ref had blown.
still as others have said its about time we had some luck go or way!
its going to be a different saints team that go to chelski on tuesday and we might, just might give them a game, a point would be a good point from that game.

I would still prefer that the calls were right, all the time. We'd have had more penalties, as a fair team, and probably have won more games, too.

There's no way to reasonably expect refs to always get it right these days, the game is too fast and the divers are too clever, which leads to second- and third-guessing by refs.

So bring on harsher punishments for clear simulation, and lets start getting some support for the refs with technology. Goal-line cameras for tough goal decisions, and up to three challenges a game for each team on fouls and other decisions where video replay can be studied.

The purists will say no. But football is always evolving (I still remember taking more than three steps while holding the ball was a no-no for keepers, and the game is better for ditching that). Time to move on for video support, too.

Saints would be winners in such an environment. No matter what jrod did today, we play the game right under Adkins.

Well done on the three points, saints.
I disagree so much with the idea of technology being used in footy, I'm afraid. I'm even against goal-line technology.

The rules of the game should be exactly the same for my eleven year old son as for the World Cup final.

People used to be mature enough to accept that you win some, you lose some. We missed three points against Arsenal when Gaston's goal was disallowed; we gained three points against Villa. That's the way it is. It balances out over a season.

The TV pundits could help by trying not to analyses every single decision from fourteen camera angles. It can't possibly do any good and erodes trust in the officials.

Also, there's a rule to cover this: the ref's decision is final. Thus, it WAS a penalty, just as Ramirez's "goal" last week wasn't a goal.
Sorry City Saint, looks like an attack on you - didn't mean to quote you - it was just a general point.
Sure, fair enough. I don't feel strongly at all about challenging calls that are made, like the penalty decision today.

I do think goal-line technology would be useful though. I'm still peeved about the england goal against Germany that wasn't given in the last World Cup.

Just caught up with motd. A blistering penalty from sir rickie, which is a reminder that you've still got to convert them when they've been given. Nicely taken as always!

Penalty or no, at least this team is showing more backbone than the disgraceful '04-'05 lot that conceded a 3-0 lead to Villa at St Mary's, the beginning of the gutless slide into relegation. I'm hopeful this group can keep us up: at any rate it won't be for the want of trying, unlike that shameful crew.

At the game today, and just watched it again on tv first. J ROD was just making sure he didn't get injured. The ref has stated in the tunnell after the game that he gave a foul for the keepers tackle on Puncheon, result penalty. Aston Villa were not beaten by the resulting penalty , they beat themselves with their inability to score one or two of the simple chances we presented to the them.
On J ROD, when is he going to start taking the chances that are coming his way in a game???. On at least four times today he was too slow to take the chance when through on goal .
A very very big 3 points were earned today by the team picked and coached by Nigel. He made it hard for a fan like me to watch the last 20 minutes of the game with the subs he put on but, he was right 100% as the record book will show. Tonight we are out of the bottom three in THE ENGLISH PREMIERSHIP, now all we have to do is stay there.
I guess this will put the, Nigel's job is on the line if he dont win the next game, to bed. Well at least until the next game we lose.

Agree.

Jrod is still developing as a Player in the PREMIERSHIP.

He needs to release the trigger earlier and hit the back of the net regularly. He has the speed ... so in training he needs to work with e.g. Clyne and race towards the goal and beat Kelvin.

Jrod has lots of untapped potential for his £7 million price tag.

Artur Borac produced a CLASS save today and saved THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON 2 Points.

BIG RESPECT for all the AWAY FANS who made it to the WHITTON ARMS yesterday (and paid the local tax of £2 entrance fee)

Went on the Saints Forum and a good link to You Tube and saints Fans after the game.

The Manager should make the officials aware of the Frank Lampard effect...

They got a free penalty in the Cup.

WE ARE ALL ENGLAND SUPPORTERS ... however, it does not mean that every game that the circus with Frank and his contract has to continue....

Have to be wary though as they may a lot of intricate stuff in the box to induce the penalty decision.

We should have a ROBUST DEFENCE and similar to Chelsea vs QPR - soak up pressure in some parts of the game and then hit then on the break for the winning goal.

Watching motd again and getting very wound up! Shearer has no loyalty what so ever towards us and we are the team who gave him his break. Vinny jones got it right about the boy lineker, jelly fish.
In the 5min segment of the game it shows 4 erratic challenges from villa players, each on Ramirez, puncheon, j-rod and shaw. R lambert got it spot on in his interview when he said he'd be more concerned about their defending. Villa are a young in-experienced team, I don't think there was any malice in the challenges but a bit reckless. If Jay had left his foot there we'd have another stretchered off, he was prevented from continuing and put off by a reckless challenge. Penalty and so was the one on punch.

Hope Ramirez gets his head up, he's not looking happy.
Having watched the replay many times, I have to say there was no intention to dive, JRod is the victim of histrionics from Bale and Co. which has brought on the MoD paranoia. If Villa deserved to lose it was because of the poor sportsmanship shown when Shaw went down. Ramirez isn't a player that relishes relegation battles, he is talented, but is more of a luxury player that will come good when the rest of the team start playing good open flowing football. The Sky Sports second commentator was annoying too, when Ramirez was raked by studs off the pitch in the first half, the commentator flippantly remarked that it was the Saints players fault because he left his leg there, after watching the replay he retracted the statement, by saying it was a fifty fifty challenge!

We've been denied a dozen legit penalties at home this season. We might have been given one we shouldn't have today; we'll know more after motd. I would still prefer that the calls were right, all the time. We'd have had more penalties, as a fair team, and probably have won more games, too. There's no way to reasonably expect refs to always get it right these days, the game is too fast and the divers are too clever, which leads to second- and third-guessing by refs. So bring on harsher punishments for clear simulation, and lets start getting some support for the refs with technology. Goal-line cameras for tough goal decisions, and up to three challenges a game for each team on fouls and other decisions where video replay can be studied. The purists will say no. But football is always evolving (I still remember taking more than three steps while holding the ball was a no-no for keepers, and the game is better for ditching that). Time to move on for video support, too. Saints would be winners in such an environment. No matter what jrod did today, we play the game right under Adkins. Well done on the three points, saints.
y not justify ur CHEATING player. stains = dirty club = no morality
Lol. Sorry, pot, kettle , black wouldn't even start to describe fully the irony of a p*mpey fan casting judgment on a saints player. Your club has been revealed as the single most crooked team in football for more than a decade.

Come back when you've been reborn as a non-league side with your record cleansed by liquidation, mate.

I doubt you'll last a season without more scandals as afc portsmouth.

There's no escaping your roots, after all.
The Skunts and WUM's seem to be having a right hissy fit, makes ou result al the more delicious so get over it my web-footed 3-toed freaks!
There have been plenty of times this season where we've denied blatant penalties and have been robbed of preciouys points, perhaps this goes some way to addressing the balance.
Overall we deserved all of the spoils and as for the so-called dive, yes he didn't touch him but for me he lost his balance trying to get his feet out of the way!. You can see JR saying he didn't dive, I for one believe him.
Anyway, it's 3 points in the bag an Chelsea next. THis really will be a test and I'll settle for a point, lets not be greedy! COYR's! FOPAD! :o)
Oh yeah, 2 more days to go! Tick! Tock!...............

We might have been given one we shouldn't have today; we'll know more after motd. I would still prefer that the calls were right, all the time. We'd have had more penalties, as a fair team, and probably have won more games, too. There's no way to reasonably expect refs to always get it right these days, the game is too fast and the divers are too clever, which leads to second- and third-guessing by refs. So bring on harsher punishments for clear simulation, and lets start getting some support for the refs with technology. Goal-line cameras for tough goal decisions, and up to three challenges a game for each team on fouls and other decisions where video replay can be studied. The purists will say no. But football is always evolving (I still remember taking more than three steps while holding the ball was a no-no for keepers, and the game is better for ditching that). Time to move on for video support, too. Saints would be winners in such an environment. No matter what jrod did today, we play the game right under Adkins. Well done on the three points, saints.[/p][/quote]y not justify ur CHEATING player. stains = dirty club = no morality[/p][/quote]Lol. Sorry, pot, kettle , black wouldn't even start to describe fully the irony of a p*mpey fan casting judgment on a saints player.

It was about time a keeper played well and got us three points

If that performance had been from a new 5 million pound keeper we would all be drooling today

We have to try and get this new centre half in soon...

The reality is we prob wont get anything at chelsea and man u if we have a patched up defence. Cant see shaw back for Chelsea. But you never know.

We would need ramirez to really explode into life in the prem and jrod to start taking chances and a bit of luck. But qpr and swansea did it. It is a bit of a bad atmosphere there. If they dont get an early goal we could have a chance



Everton is a winnable game though and all focus must be on that.

Having watched the replay many times, I have to say there was no intention to dive, JRod is the victim of histrionics from Bale and Co. which has brought on the MoD paranoia. If Villa deserved to lose it was because of the poor sportsmanship shown when Shaw went down. Ramirez isn't a player that relishes relegation battles, he is talented, but is more of a luxury player that will come good when the rest of the team start playing good open flowing football. The Sky Sports second commentator was annoying too, when Ramirez was raked by studs off the pitch in the first half, the commentator flippantly remarked that it was the Saints players fault because he left his leg there, after watching the replay he retracted the statement, by saying it was a fifty fifty challenge!
The challenge on Ramirez again was reckless, he was lucky that he did in the end back out of it. The villa player has gone in both legs off the ground, one going in studs up! What control has he got? None.
Like I mentioned earlier I don't think any challenges were malicious but reckless and out of control. I do agree bale and co haven't helped and diving does need to be erased from the game, but Jay rod didn't dive and the challenge on him and punch was reckless like the others.

Yes, watching them go down slow in that manner would be preferable and indeed, highly desirable.

Confucious says...

I'm not one to criticise Nigel, but I think a caution from the FA may be in order after his ill advised post match comments.

I have not seen a more clear cut penalty since Vincente shot dead Alioni in the 1987 Sicilian league match between AC Catania and Siracusa (though this incident was associated with a long running family dispute as well as normal match tension).

Anyhow, it's disrespectful of Nigel to claim that Jay wasn't touched. Mark Halsey had a close view and spotted the blatant trip straight away.

I think Nigel should apologise to Halsey, swallow his pride and admit the ref got it right.

It might also be in order if the next time Halsey takes a game at St Marys we give him a chorus of "The referee's a diamond"

Great result, as is our record against the teams around us and will prove the platform to pull away from the drop zone as the season moves into the latter stages.
It was a dodgy penalty decision but how many have we not been given when deserved.

Our attacking play is great to watch and if we could get a little more clinical in the box games like yesterday would be over quicker. Then again, thinking back to the Stoke game I’ve just realised that isn’t ever going to happen.
It’s the Southampton way and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Then again, thinking back to the Stoke game I’ve just realised that isn’t ever going to happen. It’s the Southampton way and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Mush On The Beach

Superb 3pts and fully deserved yesterday. However, form suggests that we will be back in the relegation mix by the time we approach the Wigan game. I'd take 3pts from the next three games right now! COYR

Right,let's get this sorted. The ref gave the penalty for the challenge on Puncheon, but played advantage cos he thought we might score. This comes from the radio solent commentator who spoke to the ref immediately after the game, so all you tw#ts slagging off J-Rod for diving haven't got a feckin leg to stand on! Great win today COYR. Shame Villa Park was such a shitehole and the disrespect to away support was shameful. Even the pub near the ground wanted £3 to get in and no beer on sale to away fans inside!!

I agree with the view that the ref gave the pen because of the foul on Puncheon.
I went to the match and I also called it at the time.
The ref appeared to put his whistle to his mouth then declined to whistle, I can only think that he expected us to convert the next shot into a goal by Rodregues.
Rickie Lambert also shouted immeadiatly Puncheon was bowled over.
An odd decision initially by the ref, I agree, but he put it right after.

Bring on Rickie-------

We were easily the better side. It's funny how you get a different perspective at the game than watching it on tv or listening on the radio. The four of us thought Rickie, despite some great touches and of course the invincible penalty, had an off day and Ramirez wasn't bad at all. Clyne made a few slips due to being rusty and Jay Rod worked his socks off. We had a great chance to go 2-0 and Jay didn't take it and that was the turning point. Villa increasingly got back into the game after that and in the end we had to defend the one goal advantage - and to me that is the massive plus point, we finally saw a game out without conceding.

The pen was the other end from us but when it happened Dave instantly said the ref had played advantage and then pointed to the spot. It was the foul on Punch that he awarded.

.... and you are?

If you're an unhappy Villa fan then here's my honest assessment having watched a live stream and listened to Nigel's interview.
1. There's doubt as to whether the pen was given for THAT tackle anyway. Some suggest it might have been for a foul on Puncheon by Guzen. If so, Nigel has already said it wasn't a foul and I agree.
2. Assuming, however, that it was given for the challenge on Rodriguez, what Nigel is saying makes some sense. I posted earlier that had Rodriguez not moved his right leg back, he would probably have been caught anyway.
3. However, I also posted that I thought (and I still think) that Rodriguez dived. His leg came back, his body fell forwards and the timing was exactly as the mis-timed tackle came in. However, there's huge doubt about that. I could be wrong. So those suggesting Rodriguez should face a punishment for deliberate diving are plain dumb. (Lineker, have you apologised yet?) Rodriguez may well have fallen simply because of his momentum.
4. Most importantly, you DON'T need contact for it to have been considered dangerous and thus a foul. I remember an example when Thierry Henry, playing for Arsenal against Saints, was about to be tackled by a Saints' player (Chris Marsden). Marsden lunged two-footed towards the ball (not the player), but the ball was just in front of Henry, who then dragged the ball back towards himself and jumped backwards with the ball. Thus, Marsden didn't make contact with either the ball or the player and ended up looking a bit silly jumping two footed towards what was the turf between himself and the ball. However, a foul was given and Marsden saw red for dangerous play.

I can understand why Villa fans feel hard done by today but how about the countless late challenges by Villa players (esp. in the second half) which gave away the initiative on many occasions? Example? The one which left Shaw on a stretcher. It was hard to see if there was any intent, but the player did nothing to avoid following through on Shaw, yet play carried on and was only stopped (to Villa's annoyance) when it was clear Shaw was in trouble. On another occasion (maybe first half) Ramirez went for a lose, knee-high ball, won it and a Villa player simply followed through into Ramirez's foot. No foul given! So, don’t blame Halsey for losing, he did all he could to help you.

If you are a Villa fan, I'd stop moaning and start focussing on how you'll keep hold of your 'stars' when you go down.
Dangerous Play is an indirect freekick not a penalty.
Dangerous play is a straight red card, 3 game ban and direct free kick!!!
From Wikipedia,

An indirect free kick is a method of restarting play in a game of association football. Unlike a direct free kick, a goal may not be scored directly from the kick. The law was derived from the Sheffield Rules that stated that no goal could be scored from a free kick. This law was absorbed into the Laws of the Game in 1877 and later adapted to allow direct free kicks as a result of dangerous play.

No response? OK on another point of view then, the Penalty is said to have been given for the Guzan tackle on Puncheon, however the Referee was looking for a reason NOT to award it, and had JRod scored his dilemma would have been eased, it was more down to hesitation that the controversy emerged, not the apparent dive.

Totally agree about the tackle on Ramirez (and other reckless Villa tackles) - and the co-commentator's 'semi retraction'.

Talking of retractions, especially as the official version is that the penalty was given for a foul by Guzan (harsh, if true), does anyone know how we can start a campaign to get Lineker (BBC) and whoever it was on Sky (Tony Cottee, was it?) to make public apologies for their comments about Jay diving?

For the record, here's a bit of what I have said about the 'Jay situation':
1. at the time, I screamed 'penalty'.
2. having watched a reply, I said, 'he dived'.
3. I watched a couple more times and said, 'I still think he dived, timing his fall, but added that there was huge doubt and he could have fallen because he had to get his foot out of the way of a lunge'.

Most on here take the view that he didn't dive. I'm still unsure but AM sure he had to get his foot out of the way, so am prepared to accept that it was THAT movement which caused him to fall.

So, Jay, if my accusations are wrong, I apologise.

In the end, if the pen was for Guzan on Punch, Nigel (and I) think we got lucky ..... and it's about-bl00dy-time!

I do agree bale and co haven't helped and diving does need to be erased from the game, but Jay rod didn't dive and the challenge on him and punch was reckless like the others.[/p][/quote]In my opinion you are spot on GHK, thanks for a well thought out opinion, and no, I must stress I am not being sarcastic or anything, I agree with your statement.[/p][/quote]Even a broken clock is right twice a day![/p][/quote]Totally agree about the tackle on Ramirez (and other reckless Villa tackles) - and the co-commentator's 'semi retraction'. Talking of retractions, especially as the official version is that the penalty was given for a foul by Guzan (harsh, if true), does anyone know how we can start a campaign to get Lineker (BBC) and whoever it was on Sky (Tony Cottee, was it?) to make public apologies for their comments about Jay diving? For the record, here's a bit of what I have said about the 'Jay situation': 1. at the time, I screamed 'penalty'. 2. having watched a reply, I said, 'he dived'. 3. I watched a couple more times and said, 'I still think he dived, timing his fall, but added that there was huge doubt and he could have fallen because he had to get his foot out of the way of a lunge'. Most on here take the view that he didn't dive. I'm still unsure but AM sure he had to get his foot out of the way, so am prepared to accept that it was THAT movement which caused him to fall. So, Jay, if my accusations are wrong, I apologise. In the end, if the pen was for Guzan on Punch, Nigel (and I) think we got lucky ..... and it's about-bl00dy-time! Strasbourg Saint

No response? OK on another point of view then, the Penalty is said to have been given for the Guzan tackle on Puncheon, however the Referee was looking for a reason NOT to award it, and had JRod scored his dilemma would have been eased, it was more down to hesitation that the controversy emerged, not the apparent dive.

Right,let's get this sorted. The ref gave the penalty for the challenge on Puncheon, but played advantage cos he thought we might score. This comes from the radio solent commentator who spoke to the ref immediately after the game, so all you tw#ts slagging off J-Rod for diving haven't got a feckin leg to stand on! Great win today COYR. Shame Villa Park was such a shitehole and the disrespect to away support was shameful. Even the pub near the ground wanted £3 to get in and no beer on sale to away fans inside!! The coppers said to us it was worth the fee to go in the pub because it guaranteed us no aggro!! Very proud to be a saint as always
not heard the commentators version, however if this is true, and i have no reason to think otherwise, then we should start a campaign to get lineker to apologise to Jrod on MOTD. dosent mater if he dived or not, if the ref gave the pen for the foul on punch (after advantage), all Jrod was doing was getting out of the way. i thought when i saw it on MOTD that when on the deck Jrod said `he never touched me` or words like that and looked confused that the ref had blown.
still as others have said its about time we had some luck go or way!
its going to be a different saints team that go to chelski on tuesday and we might, just might give them a game, a point would be a good point from that game.
well said,,, smug ar5eh0les on MoTD let Bale/Cole/Suarez off the hook whenever they can but pounced on JayRod who immediately got up and said "I did not dive and at no time claimed a pen,,,,"

my view is the pen was indeed given for the keeper's foul on Punceon. It would help if the ref was allowed to explain things post match. Having said that it was an ecentric display throughout by Mr Halsey.

Basically, it isn’t a paradox at all; it simply appears paradoxical (like the race between Achilles and the tortoise). You don’t have to understand the proof; you just have to know that the proof exists for the paradox to disappear in a puff of smoke similar to Pompey’s chances of getting out of the mire before the rooms in Hilbert’s hotel are, actually, filled.

Now, to do that in less than 30 words:

There is no paradox; it just appears to non-mathematicians that there must be. It’s just easier to say “that’s impossible” than to understand Cantor’s theory of transfinite numbers.

In a desperate attempt to get rid of you and ignoing your pitiful misuse of the engligh language - "30 words or FEWER", here goes.

In the next 60 minutes the universe's diameter will increase by 2,158,505,697,600 metres exactly.

( 14 words )

Now, please honour your promise. I don't expect you to, of course and I will ignore your weasel attempts to get out of it. We're all aware of your own team's inability to deal with inconvenient facts.
You pick the simple choice rather than the infinity hotel paradox and its a very good effort although incorrect.
Ah, you're clearly as accurate with numbers as your previous owners.

That answer is *exactly* correct. You thought the question was difficult when it's truly, astoundingly simple. Effectively asking how far light will travel in a vacuum in an hour is devastatingly simple (and is easy to answer exactly given the SI definition of a metre). Not that you'd know that. You're not even intelligent enough to ask a difficult question, you dimwit.

And your promise to cease posting (if a correct answer was posted to *either* question) means just as much as your previous owners' word.

That's all for now.

Sssshhh! from now - you're not worth the oxygen you waste daily.

Getting back to the headline - My view is this.

Goalee's tackle on punch wasn't a pen - he's entitled to go for the ball.

Just because 'contact' ever takes place it isn't a foul. The day we revert to non-contact football I'll go and watch the local netball team.

JRod did dive. I don't actually think it was a cynical pre planned lunge to gain a pen. A bit like Suarez. More instinctive. My best guess is that in a flash both players 'cheated' and probably half a second later thought 'oh dear - shouldn't have done that!'.

It happens.

Is it the refs fault - absolutely not. I watched the game and shouted PEN as soon as it happened but later saw it was not. Refs are simply trying to manage a game and if football supporters and in particular managers and players want better refereeing standards then give them the tools to do it. It seems most players and coaches these days want to encourage their team to dive and roll around or make a tackle seem much worse than it is but don't like it when a ref falls for it.

Should we introduce video support more? Not while a game is on - except for goal line stuff at this stage. However retrospectively a panel should be able to give out yellow cards etc based on video evidence - but they have to say this is what we will do from now on.

If players are then penalised and get suspended more often the 'instinct' will change from automatically falling over or hand balling to staying on your feet. The result - refs funnily enough will start to 'get better'.

Who benefits? Everyone does and I bet the players enjoy the game more and develop more respect for one another without the ponsing around on the floor and 'please call my mummy he hurt me cries'. Furthermore serious injuries will be easier to pick up and so players get more protection.

Does that include you? Sorry, only joking and you are right, I couldn't resist it, a timely reminder from your good self. The theory about the penalty came about because the Referee actually told Andy Crosby at half time that the Penalty was for the Puncheon tackle by Guzan, and that he was playing the advantage, that is wrong in many ways, but it is too late to argue about it now. Result 1 - 0 to Southampton, Lambert Penalty, 3 Points in the bag, the record books will show. No doubt we will get plenty of dodgy decisions to discuss as the Season wears on.

We were easily the better side. It's funny how you get a different perspective at the game than watching it on tv or listening on the radio. The four of us thought Rickie, despite some great touches and of course the invincible penalty, had an off day and Ramirez wasn't bad at all. Clyne made a few slips due to being rusty and Jay Rod worked his socks off. We had a great chance to go 2-0 and Jay didn't take it and that was the turning point. Villa increasingly got back into the game after that and in the end we had to defend the one goal advantage - and to me that is the massive plus point, we finally saw a game out without conceding.

The pen was the other end from us but when it happened Dave instantly said the ref had played advantage and then pointed to the spot. It was the foul on Punch that he awarded.

I can't believe tha so much time and effort has been expended by individuals on here debating the penalty. It was a penalty. Lambert scored. Saints won that's it. Nothing is achieved by this post mortem. Move on to the next game!

For all of you, especially Slugger who suggest I'm a 'skate' why would I attend every Saints game is I was?

I want saints to succeed like all of you I just get very frustrated at what I hear going on behind the scenes. Sadly it's not as rosey as you all think. Please believe me NC and NA are at loggerheads and that concerns me particularly at this time of the season! Di Matteo waits in the wings one more defeat could seal NA's fate.

I'm increasingly frustrated at JWP being constantly on the bench. I cannot understand why he does not play. He's a holding creative midfielder. He wasvexcellent at the beginning of the season. How does he not get on ahead of Steven Davis? The only explanation is thatbDavis is paid more than JWP Davis is the highest paid player in the team even being paid more than Lalana and Ramirez!!! If this is the basis of team selection IMO it is wrong. Is that why Guly is in favour so much?

Your views on this serious topic would be welcome!!

For all of you, especially Slugger who suggest I'm a 'skate' why would I attend every Saints game is I was?

I want saints to succeed like all of you I just get very frustrated at what I hear going on behind the scenes. Sadly it's not as rosey as you all think. Please believe me NC and NA are at loggerheads and that concerns me particularly at this time of the season! Di Matteo waits in the wings one more defeat could seal NA's fate.

I'm increasingly frustrated at JWP being constantly on the bench. I cannot understand why he does not play. He's a holding creative midfielder. He wasvexcellent at the beginning of the season. How does he not get on ahead of Steven Davis? The only explanation is thatbDavis is paid more than JWP Davis is the highest paid player in the team even being paid more than Lalana and Ramirez!!! If this is the basis of team selection IMO it is wrong. Is that why Guly is in favour so much?

At the end of the season the 3 pts we got from this game will more than likely keep us up. On that basis JRod will have been worth every penny of the 7m we spent on him. Then we should ship him out back to the championship (probably for the 1m his limited ability merits), bite the bullet and buy a striker who is capable of scoring 15-16 goals a season in the prem. I am not usually critical of individual players but yesterday was a repeat of everything else I have seen from him this season - so many promising situations were squandered because he either blew the chance or he was simply (and far too easily) dealt with by a defender. Overrunning the ball and missing the chance to provide RL with a simple tap from 5 yds was bad, but the scuffed drag back before taking the dive was embarrassin. Here is a player so completely adrift and out of his depth he should be spared the agony.

OK, as it's a day for dealing with WUMs, here goes.

1. If I consistently made comments that were so negative that people assumed I was a WUM or a Portsmouth supporter, I'd be questioning what I was typing. Plenty of people come on here, comment negatively and aren't given that treatment.

2. "Please believe me NC and NA are at loggerheads". I've been hearing versions of that for a couple of seasons yet I have NEVER, not once, heard a shred of evidence for it. You have given no evidence and you're the only one shouting it in every post. Perhaps we SHOULD believe you but we have n reason to. Constant repetition does not make something true.

3. You rate JWP highly. We've got the message. Do you sit and watch him in every training session? Do you have the GSP readouts from his every training session? Do you have access to his medical and fitness records? NA does and he doesn't pick him.

4.The concept that payers are selected because of their wages has no basis at all (again). It's not "The only explanation"; it's one, very unlikely, expanation. What possible motive would NA have for doing that? Seriously?

5. Guly is class.

Serious enough response for you?

Shaw was stretching to keep in the dodgy throw from boric which led to his injury. Hope Ramirez gets his head up, he's not looking happy.
Having watched the replay many times, I have to say there was no intention to dive, JRod is the victim of histrionics from Bale and Co. which has brought on the MoD paranoia. If Villa deserved to lose it was because of the poor sportsmanship shown when Shaw went down. Ramirez isn't a player that relishes relegation battles, he is talented, but is more of a luxury player that will come good when the rest of the team start playing good open flowing football. The Sky Sports second commentator was annoying too, when Ramirez was raked by studs off the pitch in the first half, the commentator flippantly remarked that it was the Saints players fault because he left his leg there, after watching the replay he retracted the statement, by saying it was a fifty fifty challenge!
The challenge on Ramirez again was reckless, he was lucky that he did in the end back out of it. The villa player has gone in both legs off the ground, one going in studs up! What control has he got? None. Like I mentioned earlier I don't think any challenges were malicious but reckless and out of control. I do agree bale and co haven't helped and diving does need to be erased from the game, but Jay rod didn't dive and the challenge on him and punch was reckless like the others.

Back to our Premiership club.
Just got back from my little cabin and seen the disputed penalty.
Did they give it for the foul on Punchy?
Definitely no contact and a soft penalty but how unlucky have we been in the last few months?
I think we might find ourselves in/near the bottom three in March... Those last four games will be make or break.

OK, as it's a day for dealing with WUMs, here goes.

1. If I consistently made comments that were so negative that people assumed I was a WUM or a Portsmouth supporter, I'd be questioning what I was typing. Plenty of people come on here, comment negatively and aren't given that treatment.

2. "Please believe me NC and NA are at loggerheads". I've been hearing versions of that for a couple of seasons yet I have NEVER, not once, heard a shred of evidence for it. You have given no evidence and you're the only one shouting it in every post. Perhaps we SHOULD believe you but we have n reason to. Constant repetition does not make something true.

3. You rate JWP highly. We've got the message. Do you sit and watch him in every training session? Do you have the GSP readouts from his every training session? Do you have access to his medical and fitness records? NA does and he doesn't pick him.

4.The concept that payers are selected because of their wages has no basis at all (again). It's not "The only explanation"; it's one, very unlikely, expanation. What possible motive would NA have for doing that? Seriously?

5. Guly is class.

Serious enough response for you?
That is actually thought provoking and a welcomed intelligent non-abusive response thank you!!!!
This reponse - "Do I really care what you think you'll mark my words in due course! Just wait and see" just reinforces the image you've created of being an empty vessel shouting the same messages sans evidence of any kind. Combine that with the lack of response to any points in my post and you'll see why you're considered to be a WUM.

It's odd, I've never, not once, seen a post where people state that they have inside info telling them that NA and NC get on just fine. It does seem odd.

When you said "there is no money left so no signings" (which you inexplicably left out of your rant above) Baddesley Bill and I both offered to bet £50 to go to charity if you were right. You then laughably claimed that it would be "insider trading" to take the bet - for charity!

So, I'm afraid that I'm with James Whitcombe Riley "when I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck". Replace "duck" with WUM and you'll be there.

anyone can say that the manager and chairman dont get on and the manager will be sacked. the manager may be sacked, might be tomorrow might be in 5 years time, it dosent take a genius to say it will happen. all that will happen is that if NA is still manager in a few years time you will be proved wrong and go quiet, but if he`s sacked this season you will go on about how right you were. as for the wage structure that you seem to know so much about please tell us how you know, dont just say a friend of mine is in the know. no manager would ever pick a team through the wages, except last season when poopey couldnt play tbh because his bonus would kick in, and to suggest that NA would do so shows what little you think of him. NA is a man of integrity, look at the way he wouldnt leave scunny untill they got a propper pay off. if NA can stand up to NC about that then he wouldnt do what you and others suggest now. same with transfers, NA will sit round a table with the `transfer team` and they will disscus targets, its then the job of NC and his team to get those players. this systems has worked for years in american sports so whats the problem?

Your views on this serious topic would be welcome!![/p][/quote]anyone can say that the manager and chairman dont get on and the manager will be sacked. the manager may be sacked, might be tomorrow might be in 5 years time, it dosent take a genius to say it will happen. all that will happen is that if NA is still manager in a few years time you will be proved wrong and go quiet, but if he`s sacked this season you will go on about how right you were. as for the wage structure that you seem to know so much about please tell us how you know, dont just say a friend of mine is in the know. no manager would ever pick a team through the wages, except last season when poopey couldnt play tbh because his bonus would kick in, and to suggest that NA would do so shows what little you think of him. NA is a man of integrity, look at the way he wouldnt leave scunny untill they got a propper pay off. if NA can stand up to NC about that then he wouldnt do what you and others suggest now. same with transfers, NA will sit round a table with the `transfer team` and they will disscus targets, its then the job of NC and his team to get those players. this systems has worked for years in american sports so whats the problem? as for you being a saints fans, to be honest, i cant see it. saintshorse101

Aston Villa or Wigan
Reading
Queens Park Rangers

Newcastle could meet the drop zone soon?
My prediction before the start of the season was ...... QPR , Reading and Villa .... i'll stick with that i think .
Wigan and Newcastle are still in the mix, do you reckon they have enough to survive, it is not a case of being too big to fall. We are far from safe and any more bad luck with injuries and we could be back in the muck very quickly. I am optimistic that we can make it, but realistic enough to know it's going to be hard work. Much as I don't like what Rsoul and BbB are spouting, what they preach isn't without some substance, we can not afford to be complacent, but as fans we can only offer our full support, and that means no negative thoughts even if you have concerns.

Norway, I forgot to respond about the reason that the Penalty being given, the jury is out, the majority that I have spoken to, say that Halsey spoke to Andy Crosby at half time and clearly said to him that it was for the GK foul on Puncheon, can't coroborate it, the Referees spokesman on Sky Sports contradicted that statement and said it was for the intent on JRod. I am leaning towards the former argument but in my opinion it was a dubious shout either way, I am not complaining, it still had to be finished off and Rickie did that in style.

I posted a couple of weeks back about the lurching we keep doing and it appears we continue to do.

If we lose a game it is not the end of the world, bad news yes, but not the end. It does not mean the squad are all crap and we need to sack the manager and find new owners.

If we win a game it's great news but not the end of our battle. It does not mean everything is rosy in the garden and we don't still need some changes and improvements.

There is a good chance that we will get very little out of the next three, maybe nothing at all. If that happens I've got no doubt that we will turn Wigan into the next 'must win game'. Sooner or later we will lose one of these so called games.

We need to take a measured calm stance and not react to each and every match. What is the saying NA uses? Something about not too high and not too low - whatever it is, he's bloody right!

I remain optimistic. Are there 3 worse teams than us? Yes, probably 4 or more tbh.

I'm increasingly frustrated at JWP being constantly on the bench. I cannot understand why he does not play. He's a holding creative midfielder. He wasvexcellent at the beginning of the season. How does he not get on ahead of Steven Davis? The only explanation is thatbDavis is paid more than JWP Davis is the highest paid player in the team even being paid more than Lalana and Ramirez!!! If this is the basis of team selection IMO it is wrong. Is that why Guly is in favour so much?

Your views on this serious topic would be welcome!!
OK, as it's a day for dealing with WUMs, here goes.

1. If I consistently made comments that were so negative that people assumed I was a WUM or a Portsmouth supporter, I'd be questioning what I was typing. Plenty of people come on here, comment negatively and aren't given that treatment.

2. "Please believe me NC and NA are at loggerheads". I've been hearing versions of that for a couple of seasons yet I have NEVER, not once, heard a shred of evidence for it. You have given no evidence and you're the only one shouting it in every post. Perhaps we SHOULD believe you but we have n reason to. Constant repetition does not make something true.

3. You rate JWP highly. We've got the message. Do you sit and watch him in every training session? Do you have the GSP readouts from his every training session? Do you have access to his medical and fitness records? NA does and he doesn't pick him.

4.The concept that payers are selected because of their wages has no basis at all (again). It's not "The only explanation"; it's one, very unlikely, expanation. What possible motive would NA have for doing that? Seriously?

5. Guly is class.

Serious enough response for you?
Apart from point No.5, I completely agree Mr V. I told saintly the other day that I'd be more than happy to discuss his points if he provided some evidence, as yet he hasn't provided any. I also read his take on yesterday's game and how anyone can find so many negatives in a quite solid performance amazes me!

If we lose a game it is not the end of the world, bad news yes, but not the end. It does not mean the squad are all crap and we need to sack the manager and find new owners.

If we win a game it's great news but not the end of our battle. It does not mean everything is rosy in the garden and we don't still need some changes and improvements.

There is a good chance that we will get very little out of the next three, maybe nothing at all. If that happens I've got no doubt that we will turn Wigan into the next 'must win game'. Sooner or later we will lose one of these so called games.

We need to take a measured calm stance and not react to each and every match. What is the saying NA uses? Something about not too high and not too low - whatever it is, he's bloody right!
Wise words imo ..... from where i'm sitting we are indeed learning and improving , can't ask for much more really ........ I also think that Nigel will one day be Englands' manager and we're lucky to have him .... together as one !
If we threaten him with his job every other match I don't really think we can expect any loyalty if an offer comes in.

I remain optimistic. Are there 3 worse teams than us? Yes, probably 4 or more tbh.
Who threatens Nigel with his job ? ........... just a few numpties on here and i doubt Mr Adkins loses much sleep over it ! lol .

Seed, one thing to remember is that part of the reason for the optimism is that it isn't just one game. If the season had just been the last ten games, we'd be in tenth position in the league on 14 points from 30 - same as Norwich and one point behind Chelsea.

Also, goals conceded in the past ten games, we have Chelsea and Man C on 9 and us, Stoke and Liverpool on 10.

So it's *possibly* not just a flash in the pan. Yes, we'll lose some (probably starting this week with Chelsea) which will bring Saintly..ah..sole and his ilk back on here whining, but the long-term performance is better than it might feel.

In this thread it states "Rodriguez went down in the area without being touched by Edna Stevens" (forget the obvious mispelling of Enda Stevens).

We have looked at the incident from various replays and Nigel is wrong about no contact between Stevens and Jay Rod if you look carefully you will see Stevens pulling at Jay Rods shirt with Jay Rod pulling his foot away and the shirt pulling Jay Rod was unbalanced and had no option than going over, this is even bourne out by the picture at the start of this thread

I am probably in a minority but I believe that shirt pulling is as bad as diving and referees should give more penalties from corners etc. when all the jostling and shirt pulling is going on, this might deter some of the bully boys from all the dirty tricks that spoil the game

Indeed, certainly improving, the next fixtures are going to be interesting in that we could measure how far, as we are playing teams second time around. Arsenal being an example. Tough games? Yes, but we're starting to play smarter.
My only gripe yesterday was, when ahead we should keep the ball and slow the game down, not panic and hoof! Good performances though and good approach to the game from NA.

There is a good chance that we will get very little out of the next three, maybe nothing at all. If that happens I've got no doubt that we will turn Wigan into the next 'must win game'. Sooner or later we will lose one of these so called games.

We need to take a measured calm stance and not react to each and every match. What is the saying NA uses? Something about not too high and not too low - whatever it is, he's bloody right!
Wise words imo ..... from where i'm sitting we are indeed learning and improving , can't ask for much more really ........ I also think that Nigel will one day be Englands' manager and we're lucky to have him .... together as one !
If we threaten him with his job every other match I don't really think we can expect any loyalty if an offer comes in.

I remain optimistic. Are there 3 worse teams than us? Yes, probably 4 or more tbh.
Who threatens Nigel with his job ? ........... just a few numpties on here and i doubt Mr Adkins loses much sleep over it ! lol .
the opposite... even if the worse rumours are true, what does it mean for Nigel ? He would walk into another job instantly probably on more money... Yes the sensible way forward is for Saints for stick with him, but I think he knows he has cut his teeth with Saints and is now sought after. With the resources of our club and what he has achieved, he is made.... If Nicola has a brain he will stick with him.

Why bother?
This post is an embarrassment because as always Osprey you miss the point - look at the response it was abusive. You like the other simpletons on her can't see further than your nose upon which are balanced your rosé coloured spectacles.
My last words to you, I'm afraid. You came on and asked for serious responses. You got some and you completely, totally and utterly ignored them; your only response has been this travesty, simply accusing those who disagree with you as being naive.

No facts, no backup of your tediously repeated shouts that you are right and that there are major problems in the running of the club at many levels. You might even be right yet without evidence or argument to back it up, you're a bit like the drunk bloke shouting at the end of the bar trying to pick a fight.

Some time ago (I've looked) you used to post sensibly and with balance. You could see that there were two sides to every argument. You weren't once but you have now become just another tedious WUM. You no longer deserve the recognition of debate.

Genuinely, I feel sorry for you; you must get absolutely no pleasure from watching the team you profess to love. What an awful state to be in, winding people up who want just the same as you, success for our team. Tragic.

We bettered them for a large part of the first half up there, then in 10 minutes it all fell apart. We should have gone 2-0 up but missed a one on one with the keeper, that could have made a big difference.

Not sure we will get anything Wednesday. A loss by the odd goal would be ok. Luckily NA isn't me though so with his insane contagious
positivity, maybe we can pull something off.

Keep it at 0-0 and you never know, but only the moronic chelsea fans and their booing offer us a sniff.

But I think we can beat everton and get our first major scalp at home. They are slightly off the boil at the moment.

Me too. If he does keep them up it could well be at our expense. I think QPR and Reading will drop then it's one of Wigan, Villa and Saints. If either QPR or Reading get out of it then it's two of the others.

What happens to all the Penalty decisions where our players have been fouled in the penalty area but no Penalty has been given??

Bring in a Video Referee to make sure the penalty is legitimate. In this instance the decision would be overturned but we would be mid-table due to all the other ones going our way so I'm in favour!!

Why goal line technology hasn't already been implemented I'm amazed someone needs to really get a grip at FIFA and UEFA and really make some changes that will protect the game going forward!

It was a blatant dive and he played for it, if he has pre empted the challenge than he has to stay on his feet, part of being a good footballer is having the skill to take it round people, not take it round someone or evade a tackle and fall over, you cant say if he hadnt avoided the challenge he would have injured himself. In my opinion he was scared of the tackle and dived to avoid it. You cant say there was no contact but it was still a penalty, there has to be contact in order for it to be a penalty. Adkins knows he got away with it and so does rodriguez.
