  • "I have been proved right on all counts.
    NC should have brought in an experienced, proven, PL coach to assist Nigel from day one in the PL. -- he didn't.
    Had he done so the learning curve wouldn't have been so steep, Saints would now have been higher in the league table and Nigel would have been fire proof, well as fire proof as anyone can be under a weasel like Cortese.
    As a result of NC's mistake, Nigel had to learn from scratch, it took him time but he did it and Saints now sit above many of the bigger clubs with popular, recognised, PL managers, with an excellent chance of avoiding relegation.
    For God's sake --Nigel beat Cortese's own 5 year plan by 2 or is it 3 years, what more does the weasel expect?
    The weasel's actions have been condemned by everyone in football from Fergie himself and 95% of the Saints fans.
    What goes around comes around and I predict that the weasel will get his just come uppance -- sooner rather than later ---unfortunately for SFC and its supporters, I predictit will be before the end of this season, whilst Nigel will go from strength to strength.
    A great club has been tainted by this weasel of a chairman --- I can't wait for him to go POP!
    I only hope Terry Paine resigns in protest, surely he wouldn't now want his name mentioned in the same breath as Cortese's.
    Has Solent Interiors been paid yet, for their first claim --- does anyone know the date of the next court hearings for claims 2 and 3?!!"

Saints have confirmed the appointments of new manager Mauricio Pochettino's backroom staff.

Jesús Pérez, who worked as a technical coach under Pochettino at Espanyol, is the assistant boss.

The 41-year-old started at the Spanish side as a first-team analyst in 2010, before working his way up.

Miguel D'Agostino, 41, takes over as a first-team coach, while former Spanish international Toni Jiménez, 42, is the goalkeeping coach.

Like Pérez, they also worked under Pochettino at Espanyol, with Jiménez having served as his number two at the Spanish club.

The trio will be assisted by technical support coach Fran Alonso.

Nigel Adkins' backroom staff - Andy Crosby, Dean Wilkins and Jim Stannard - had all been relieved of their duties following the dismissal of the previous boss last week.
