    a question to all

    it is saturday the 28th of april, the last week of competition games and southampton can either win the championship or be runners up, (win will make us win a loss and we are runners up). At the other end of the championship table is portsmouth who if win jump over coventry who southampton play and avoid relegation.
    therefore my question is, Would you rather see southampton win and come first in the championship, or would you rather see southampton let coventry win, inso letting them avoid relegation, southampton coming second, and portsmouth relegated.

    where would you want to be??

    just a thought
    Thats a bloody evil thing to ask first thing on a Monday morning I'll be thinking about it all day now.

    No I won't I could never accept throwing a game even to get even with the skates
    I agree. Unlikely the fish lovers, I want Saints to be proud, and go out to win every game.
    I've argued this for years, but I find it pathetic that Skates sing and feel proud about that day. I mean, either they bent over and let WBA win, which is incredibly embarrassing, , and it shows no morals, values or class on Poopey's side.
    Or, if that is actually not the case, then they weren't even good enough to beat WBA, who were a very poor team indeed. So either way, I'd not be shouting about it.
    The other side is that Saints just weren't good enough that year, and I think we all accept that. We got ourself relegated, nobody else caused it.
    I just hope that Saints never, ever do anything like that. I think forfeiting a game should incur points deductions too, so our six fingered fishy friends got off there too.
    Lets win, even if it keeps them up. We'll always be the class team in Hampshire, and they'll always be the cheats."

Boss is keen for star names to rest up

Nigel Adkins

Nigel Adkins

First published in Saints News

NIGEL Adkins is relishing the opportunity for Saints to have a rest from midweek action.

The club have no fixture before next Saturday’s trip to Watford, meaning they have a rare full seven days to recover and prepare.

Not since early January have Saints avoided a midweek fixture in their schedule.

While Adkins has always expressed his confidence in the squad’s ability to cope with a heavy workload, he is also happy that he and the players can put their feet up in the evenings this week.

“We give ourselves an opportunity to recover from some knocks and injuries and get a good week’s training under our belt,” he said.

“We’ve got 14 games of the season left, everyone’s got to be ready to go out and give everything for the cause, and it’s not about 11 players it’s about the full squad.”
