Adkins heading for Christmas number one

SAINTS will have one foot in the Premier League if they avoid defeat at Pompey this weekend.

Providing they leave Fratton Park with at least a point, Nigel Adkins’ men will top the Championship table at Christmas.

And history suggests the side leading the way on December 25 will end up winning promotion.

Of the last 20 teams to be in first place on Christmas Day, 16 went on to reach the top flight at the end of the season. Even if Saints lose to their bitter rivals on Sunday, there is a strong chance they will remain at the summit.

I want us to destroy the skates at the weekend and laugh as they wreck their own city again.
Don't let us down Saints, won't be able to bear the coach journey back otherwise.

I really do hope our Nige realises the depth of feeling between Saints and the pub side down the road, this is not "just" another game. Its far more than that!
When we were down and nearly out they crowed and crowed, just like some old fish-wives! There was no empathy, just pure ill-will. Now it is our opportunity to turn the screw, and on Sunday we will prevail. Cream floats to the top and sh!t sinks to the bottom, lets just hope they enjoy they're relegation battle which surely must happen if they are deducted points from the FL. If they are not then I can see a few clubs suing the FL, now that would be interesting.
It goes without saying that I hope KD is fit together with Chappers, we need to put in a performance that does justice to our position. Its long overdue and each and every one of the side needs to be up for this, after all this is Portsmuff's cup final.........

As the print deadline for my Pudong Times match report is Saturday night I have filed my Skate match report today as follows.....

Skatesmouth England was officially declared the most depressed city in the world following the 6-0 home defeat of the local soccer team by jubilant 'top of the league' Southampton.

First half hat tricks by Lambert and Lallana put the game to rest and in the second half Saints contented themselves with a keep-ball display including a 10 minute 347 pass sequence accompanied by the song "We are Southampton - we're taking the p!ss." With 10 minutes to go, the Southampton supporters took the unprecedented step of supporting the Skate team. This will have seemed strange to Asian viewers, but if 'Irony' is Googled, Wikipedia, this will explain this peculiarity of English culture.

Post match, Mr Nigel Adkins, the Saints Manager, said: "The max three sub rule spoiled the day. I would have liked to have brought on the Academy boys second half. To be honest I was also rather annoyed that Kelvin Davis had a nap behind the goal and I think Fonte and Hooiveld should not have been playing ludu down by the corner flag."

Mr Appleskate, the Skatesmouth Manager, said "I am seeing a psychiatrist tomorrow to find out why I joined this sh!te club. On the way I shall buy a lot of wool so I can knit a new engine for my car."

A very fat ugly woman dressed in blue said "We are all gutted innit, especially my brother, who is also my uncle and my Auntie Val, who is our mum."

The Queen issued a statement saying she would support moves to pay for thousands of Skatesmouth fans who now wish to be flown to Swiss suicide clinics. "I have been advised that my request to have sad Skates used as fox substitutes for hunting is inappropriate before Christmas" she explained.

Unemployment in Skatesmouth has soared to 99% since the recession hit - from only 91% when the economy was booming. The expected sale of the insolvent club to the Kabul Taliban Internet Scams Co Ltd will not now go ahead as the Btritish Tourist Board is to build a 100 ft wall around Skatesmouth and not let anyone in.

Todays story with a positive spin - well done lads! Back by popular demand "Catch of the Day". Today I thought we could look at that rare breed the Hampshire Blue Minnow. Not a lot is known of this fresh water species, as due to contamination in the streams around it's habitat is all but extinct. The minnow, sometimes referred to as small fry, is a very aggressive species due to it's diminutive stature in the world. A lot of people believe this is due to an inferiority complex. A solitary Minnow can be a wonderful fish. It defends it's territory with ferocity, but when one or more are in the same location expect a riot to break out. Often found in the East of Hampshire the blue Minnow's number have been decreasing over the last few years - in fact the population is believed to have declined 4 to 1. As these numbers have been declining in the East - a strange metomorphisis has taken place around the clean waters of the Test & Itchen. There seems to be a new species of Hampshire Minnow which looks more like a clown fish - it has red & white stripes. It has been more commonly referred to as the Saintly Minnow. Again it has many of the traits of the Blue variety. Singularly defends it's territory ferociously, however has learnt to get along with it's fellow fish, and actually tends to party when more than one gets together.
Any other observations would be welcome from either side of Hampshire - after all there is a serious side to all of this...what happens if of the two species, only one was to survive and fight another day?”

Great work Yorkie. Although refering to us as a "clown (fish)" may be giving amunition to our friends in the East...
:-)
I've been reading the P*rtsmouth news site. And feel I should highlight/question their obsession with our empty seats they continually mention this. Whilst, (a) they are still unable to fill their own ground and (b) We are still averaging 10K more than they manage.
Surely people in glass houses shouldn't have s*x with the light on, I mean throw stones.

They also appear to have constructed a wacky conspiracy theory, convincing themselves that the FA have instructed referees to send opposition players off so we only play 10 men, oblivious to the fact that the oppo simply become frustrated by superior play and lose their cool (as happened in Reading v W ham).

They constantly mention how lucky we are to be at the top, highlighting the fact that only because West Ham havent taken advantage of their opportunities are we Top of the League. Which, to me is mindnumbingly obvious. Reinforcing the fact that because the other 23 teams haven't taken their chances but we HAVE that is WHY we are the best team after 21 games....

Can't wait for Sunday!!!

Like it makes any difference.

Some real stars coming through trust me. . We'll be top at Christmas and won't it make mine! Whoo - Whoo!
I think Nigel understands the fans completely. When did we last have a big game against someone local that we lost?

As the print deadline for my Pudong Times match report is Saturday night I have filed my Skate match report today as follows.....

To be honest I was also rather annoyed that Kelvin Davis had a nap behind the goal and I think Fonte and Hooiveld should not have been playing ludu down by the corner flag."

A very fat ugly woman dressed in blue said "We are all gutted innit, especially my brother, who is also my uncle and my Auntie Val, who is our mum." The Queen issued a statement saying she would support moves to pay for thousands of Skatesmouth fans who now wish to be flown to Swiss suicide clinics. "I have been advised that my request to have sad Skates used as fox substitutes for hunting is inappropriate before Christmas" she explained. Unemployment in Skatesmouth has soared to 99% since the recession hit - from only 91% when the economy was booming. The expected sale of the insolvent club to the Kabul Taliban Internet Scams Co Ltd will not now go ahead as the Btritish Tourist Board is to build a 100 ft wall around Skatesmouth and not let anyone in.
LOL, I love it!!! Made me chuckle and my day.Quality!!... I'll be there Sunday and can't wait COYR... A couple of wins over us recently is the only thing the blue side have onus!! History tells the true story! Do we harp on about beating them more times then they're ever beaten us? No, Do we harp on at us lasting 28 years in the premier league and them 2 minutes? No.. Let the blue side have there moment, because everyone knows it's not going to last!!
I hope they don't win Sunday for the local shop owners!! After all, don't want them smashing up there own town in excitement like they did last time!! Ha,Ha, I did hear it did a million pounds worth of improvements though by smashing it up!! Don't worry shop owners, It's not going to happen this time round!! It maybe there cup final, but our boys are definately going to spoil there little moment!! I can't wait!! p.s, Kelvin fit for Sunday!! :-) (saints website)

What we all must remember is that for our dear deluded fool is that this is "their" cup final, last chance saloon for 15 minutes of fame.
We must also remember that the clocks ticking insofar as the decision by the FL for a points deduction, also by how many? -10? -15? there's no money left in the piggy-bank, but I wouldn't put it past them to raid the charity tin. They do have previous for that one! The CVA kicks in Jan, so any residual parachute payments will be absorbed by that.
Then there is the lean-to which is Notarf Krap, I understand that they hope to have running water by Sunday and have also arranged to have the grazing horses removed before kick-off! I just hope they can cope with a full house (17000?), must be quite a treat for them to sell out. Couldn't even do that whilst in the Premiership, still if you want to play a premiership side again I'm sure we'd agree to it. Especially if its a benefit/charity match for old times sake!.......
Anyway, I must not poke fun at the less fortunate, especially those whom are encompassed within the confines of care in the community.
So, like I've already said me old fish finger, enjoy the 15 minutes of fame. Because it's all that you have left and have to look foward too!.........COYR's!

Remember that while we spend Christmas top of the league in a cosy big stadium, that there are others less fortunate than us! I once heard a story about a team not far from us that had to travel miles to watch a decent football match as they had none where they lived. That they had a small run down place to call home! That can only find criminals to help them through while they struggle to survive! They wear a kit that most children only wear when they forgot their p.e kit! They are on their last legs and are often seen crying in desolate streets surrounded by the constant smell and diseases of sewage! For the small charge of just ten pounds you can buy the DVD and laugh as much as I have :-)

Not sure about whether the players being confident is a good sign! I'd rather have them focused and fired up - over confidence smacks of complacency to me.
It will be a feisty affair and sure to be a sending off - probably Schneiderlin as the red mist decends.
Footballers fortunately tend not to be as engrossed in the whole "scummer" thing, and hopefully will not let the atmosphere get to them!
Our season so far has given us hope for a springboard into 2012 and another promotion - more than we could have hoped for. The fact this could be the last season this match takes place for a VERY long time. We owe them not so much for the Cup game but that shambolic display in 2004/05. That team had no "balls" and bottled it. There is a different kind of pressure this time around - with a team of winners rather than losers.

If you do eventually get promoted then it will be one foot in the Premiership and one foot in the grave especially with your average squad of players you have there. Then there's the substantial amounts of funding required to get top players in and potentially of premiership qaulity to replace them unless you have a sugar daddy at the club we don't know about.
It's more likely if your team makes the premiership they will find it very difficult and will be probably always struggling near the bottom of the Premiership, just like West Ham did and then ultimately got relegated finally back to the championship.

Manager Can't Wait For Sunday
Posted on: Tue 13 Dec 2011

Nigel Adkins says he needs no reminding about how much this weekend's game at Fratton Park means to supporters.

The gaffer knows that the anticipation surrounding the match is different to most other games, and is keen to see his side rise to the occasion on Sunday.

"It's important to everybody and I can't wait for it," he enthused.

"We have a great week lined up for the players because this is a special game coming up on Sunday, we are all well aware of that.

"Forget the league campaign, this is a massive game, it's special, the players are aware of that and I have been aware of that since I have been down here.

"I know it means everything to the supporters and we are going to go out at Portsmouth next weekend and do everything we can to win that game of football, because believe me, we know how important it is."

Rickie Lambert returned last weekend to rescue a point against Blackpool, and Adkins was pleased to see the front man come through that showing with no ill effects ahead of the short trip down the M27.

"The cross has come in, and Rickie is there to head in at the back post. His goals change games."
from os Manager Can't Wait For Sunday Posted on: Tue 13 Dec 2011 Nigel Adkins says he needs no reminding about how much this weekend's game at Fratton Park means to supporters. The gaffer knows that the anticipation surrounding the match is different to most other games, and is keen to see his side rise to the occasion on Sunday. "It's important to everybody and I can't wait for it," he enthused. "We have a great week lined up for the players because this is a special game coming up on Sunday, we are all well aware of that.

If you do eventually get promoted then it will be one foot in the Premiership and one foot in the grave especially with your average squad of players you have there. Then there's the substantial amounts of funding required to get top players in and potentially of premiership qaulity to replace them unless you have a sugar daddy at the club we don't know about. It's more likely if your team makes the premiership they will find it very difficult and will be probably always struggling near the bottom of the Premiership, just like West Ham did and then ultimately got relegated finally back to the championship.
God, you are SO right. I hadn't thought about it like that until I saw it expressed so lucidly and powerfully. O Lord why have you forsaken us thus? Why can't we be in Pompey's position?

Truly, you boys in blue are the envy of the South Coast.

Im loving all this Pompey/Saints Banter on here. We are top of the league, no debt, great manager, just had an amazing run of winning games at home, and they still reckon they are in a better situation than us? I even feel a little sorry for them. Sympathy, thats it i think.

Wow, all that bitterness! Never mind sweetheart you'll enjoy watching your pub side in the Blue Square league, mind you I think you'll struglle to compete there!
It must really sting to see a superior Saints side prevailing over a second rate ladies team like yourselves, and then there's your ahem, stadium? Do me a favour, our local Lidl's has more atmosphere! As for your knuckle dragging, thick, inbred supporters! Oh how the local care in the community health officials must rub their hands, as a case study you lot must be the equivalent of a lottery win!
So, when we give you a lesson in football Sherlock, where do you go from there? If we lose or draw, we still go on to better and greater things, where as you? A good season for your p!ss-poor pub side is to escape oblivion, only relegation would be like buying the FA cup! Remember?
So Skatesonthinice, what cr@p do you have to say in answer to the bleeding obvious?......COYR's

We have 43 points from our 21 league games this season.

Last season after 21 games we had 34 points and 13 of those 21 matches had been played at home, only 8 away.

Despite recent wobbles we are doing fine. A couple of good signings to strengthen the squad in January will give us the additional impetus we need.

Can I just ask all Pompey fans that come here one single, simple question.

Whose situation would you rather be in? Ours, sitting top of the league, debt paid, quality stadium that can be expanded when the needs arrises (currently 17 largest in the country), stong management in both NA and NC, top quality youth system bringing new tallent up through the ranks, financial backing to carry the team into the future.

Or yours. relegation threatened, potential points loss, financially FUBAR'd, no assetts, dwindling home attendance in a football ground (44th largest in the country) held up by rust and old chewing gum, and well, as for the owners.... the less said about them the better!!
