    Dear God in Heaven! What a load of tosh is being written on this site!

    Ospreysaint is absolutely right. We have to move on and support our team, especially tonight. How many of the 'let's hang NC' brigade were only recently screaming 'in NC and NA we trust!'.

    And another thing - it is NOT, repeat NOT 'our Club'. To my knowledge it is Swiss owned. As supporters of SFC we support the Club and the team that goes out on the Park each week. I have done that for nearly 60 years and will continue to do so until the Grim Reaper calls for me.

    How many times do we have to say that we are almost all 100% shocked that Nigel has departed, and the manner in which his dismissal was done. But the fact is he has gone. We have a new management team and we move on. That's what Osprey is saying, and I totally agree with him.

    I will NOT be demonstrating in any way tonight. It's pointless and will achieve nothing. I want the team to know that as a Saints fan and supporter the players have my full support, and I will be willing them on to get three points. I do not want Mr Moyes going home with the spoils because a few mindless so called fans have undermined the team.

    Now lets stop moaning. What's done is done - we can do nothing about it - so lets move forward starting on the terraces tonight.
    We should support our team and we will support our team

    ....BUT.........

    ......surely we must show in some way to our chairman Cortese that we, the Southampton supporters, firmly disapprove his sacking of Nigel Adkins and that he just shouldn's do as he likes, the supporter are ones who make the club what it is, without them - there is no club, and a football club should be managed according to their wishes/desires, not by his own ego and ambition.

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.
