Man up! Show a bit a belief. If you go to games then get behind the players. Don't sit there grizzling and tutting. Show a bit of passion and pride in your club. It might help more than booing. MAN UP!
    The reason we are miffed is the problems are self created. We sacked a manager purely because the chairman didnt like him, nothing to do with results nothing to do with Fontes girlfriend. We then lost alot of ground under the caretaker. Nige was brought in the day after the transfer window shut. He then needed to learn the squad and is still fully finding his feet. We didnt take full advantage of the transfer window and indeed weakened the squad by loaning too many out. NC's last chance for this season is the January window and already there are veiled messages via NA that we may wait to the summer.... That's why we are miffed, nothing to do with fickle, we know it could have been different.
    Can't agree with you Seedhouse, NC is a business man and one of the basic rules of business is that "you don't have to like someone to work with them".
    Sure it helps but definitely not necessary.
    Whatever the reason or reasons we are not likely to know for sure, because of a likely confidentiality clause. It's history, move on fella.
    I have to say Seedhouse, from your past postings you come across as one of those from the Pre-Liebheer era whose nose has been put out of joint.
    Whoever is in charge now or in the future, all us arm-chair managers will never be 100% satisfied with results, personalities or the timing of certain events.
    It's all down to one common denominator the game of football itself. In the words of one very famous past England player --"It's a funny old game"
    I would`nt be moaning if we were in the top2 or very close to it,but as we approach Christmas we are mid table in the third division after starting the season as hot favourites.If we can somehow find the grit and determination,the consistency that we have lacked for almost half the season then maybe we can sneak up the table but i think it`s very realistic now to accept that we are at best a playoff side and if we dont go up do we then sack Adkins and start again?"

Big freeze not all bad for Saints

Big freeze not all bad for Saints

LEE Barnard’s fitness should be among the silver linings after Saints suffered the disappointment of a second successive away League One game being postponed due to the big freeze.

A pitch inspection yesterday morning revealed the pitch at Walsall’s Banks’s Stadium was frozen and, with no realistic chance of it thawing, the game was given the axe early. It is now scheduled for March 1.

Saints’ game at Hartlepool earlier this month was postponed in the same way. But at least it gives key striker Barnard extra chance to get fit in time for Saints’ Boxing Day trip to Charlton. Full story in today's Daily Echo
