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.”

I loved Aaron Martin's piece on the O/S which affirmed how hard they work and how they are committed to the squad ethic.. It's all about squad performing and interchangeability and playing the way they love. He said Nigel could change the whole team and they would still play the same game. I love that. Team that haven't got it won't get far.

I love everything about the way Nigel runs his squad and the way makes his changes, the way places are earned and his every positive approach to this beautiful game and this fantastic club.

Keep it up Nigel.. can't wait for the Prem and Europe in future years.

Feet well and truly on the ground though... game at a time and working hard.

COYR.. and cheers to all the brilliant fans singing each week.. you are impressive!!

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??

Delighted for Lee to get such a special goal ( what power in his shot).
Good to see a local guy (Martin ) coming into the side.
If we continue to play like this we will win the league.

Didn't a scenario similar to that happen when we were relegated? didn't Pompey have to beat West brom? didn't they capitulate? If I supported football I would want to go up top of the table but I know many fans who would love to say "we sent them down"

100% wrong! There 14 winnable games.. every game is winnable.
Others must earn every point from us the hard way. Each and every player in The Saints squad will work their hearts out to get in the starting team and then will fight them for every point. The will fight for second of play from whistle to whistle, Then they'll train their hardest again to win a start against the next lot to try and take a point from the mighty SFC.
Every point lads.. They are ours.. the opposition will have to cut them from you!!

Our objective is to return to the PL, as champions or runners up I care not!

Now, if you were to ask the question in the perspective of us being in 2nd place or play-offs then my answer would be for us to beat Coventry, even if it meant the filth staying up although it may be academic because I believe the FL are considering another points penalty!

But in answer to the former, I'd happily settle for 2nd place if it meant consigning our inbred cousins to where they belong! Simples! COYR's! FOP!

Thanks for the question, Pete.

It's something I think most of us have thought about.

I for one would never want Saints to throw a game. Ask Brighton fans about our last promotion to the top flight when we bored our way to a convenient 0-0 last-day draw against Spurs. Spurs went up, BHA didn't.

As I remember it, Poopey had nothing much at stake when they lost to WBA and, as things turned out, they could have (yes, could HAVE not could OF) won and we'd still have been relegated. What was disgusting was the skates celebrating when WBA scored.

So, as much as I want the disgustingly run club that is PFC to suffer the biggest demise possible, (not because it's them but because FIFA/UEFA et al needs to be shocked into seeing what a mess badly run, over-spending clubs have helped get the whole of football into - and the liquidation of PFC might just provide that shock) it doesn't matter to me what the situation is on the last day of the season, we must play to win.

However, it's precisely because of the crazy, unmanageable financing at clubs like PFC (and Chelsea etc.) that have caused the knock-on financial mess apparent at other clubs such as Coventry and Plymouth.

So, good luck to Coventry and Plymouth. It's sad to see clubs like that in trouble and I hope both recover soon.

Sleep well, Pete and send some Sydney sunshine!

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.

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. BracknellSaint

Thanks for the question, Pete.

It's something I think most of us have thought about.

I for one would never want Saints to throw a game. Ask Brighton fans about our last promotion to the top flight when we bored our way to a convenient 0-0 last-day draw against Spurs. Spurs went up, BHA didn't.

As I remember it, Poopey had nothing much at stake when they lost to WBA and, as things turned out, they could have (yes, could HAVE not could OF) won and we'd still have been relegated. What was disgusting was the skates celebrating when WBA scored.

So, as much as I want the disgustingly run club that is PFC to suffer the biggest demise possible, (not because it's them but because FIFA/UEFA et al needs to be shocked into seeing what a mess badly run, over-spending clubs have helped get the whole of football into - and the liquidation of PFC might just provide that shock) it doesn't matter to me what the situation is on the last day of the season, we must play to win.

However, it's precisely because of the crazy, unmanageable financing at clubs like PFC (and Chelsea etc.) that have caused the knock-on financial mess apparent at other clubs such as Coventry and Plymouth.

So, good luck to Coventry and Plymouth. It's sad to see clubs like that in trouble and I hope both recover soon.

Sleep well, Pete and send some Sydney sunshine!
Lets be honest Strassie. we went down that year because we were $hite.
Things are different now.we go into every game thinking we can win it.
Great innit.

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??

Good question but for me an easy one to answer. We should try to win every competitive game at all costs. Even if we were already champions and beating Coventry sends them down instead of Pompey, we should still play to win. Saints should never lower our standard to those of other clubs, especially that apology of a football club down the M27. What does it say about the moral code of a set of fans who cheered WBA scoring against their own team because it helped send Saints down. May the great club that is Southampton FC never sink so low.

Good point.... However, I can't ever imagine Nigel or this team wanting to throw a game, they want to win every game, that is clear. I personally think it is a great question, but I also think that in reality Portsmouth will be down (or gone) by then. Portsmouth never really got us relegated, they delude themselves, we had 37 other games that consigned us to our relegation.

Depends on how the skates behave over the next few days/weeks.
You may have noticed, on Saturday, that they only named 3 substitutes at Barnsley.

They could have named 5, but that would have meant using academy players, but they chose not to do so.

Why? Because,according to the FL, any academy player used in the first team, or as a match day sub, on 3 occasions, will automatically be considered a member of the first team squad.

So, by using academy players, Poopey would increase their squad size.

Nothing wrong with that except that it would damage their chances of bringing in extra EXPERIENCED players on emergency loans.

They are trying to work an advantage over the likes of Forest, Doncaster and Coventry.

One of their fans says it is bending the rules, but most decent fans see it as taking the p1ss, again.

So, with that in mind, if they now improve their squad with emergency loans and need us to beat Coventry last day, as longs as we are already promoted, I'd send out our academy team.
If nothing else it would show Poopey that the academy is there to be used.

Didn't a scenario similar to that happen when we were relegated? didn't Pompey have to beat West brom? didn't they capitulate? If I supported football I would want to go up top of the table but I know many fans who would love to say "we sent them down"
Win the title - Poopey will get relegated anyway!

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
There is no room for sympathy in Football.
I hope that we batter Pompey when they come here and gain revenge for everything thrown at us in the last few years.
And in their last game I hope Forest do the same and save themselves.
I would never wear the shirt of an opponent and cheer when they scored against us, what sort of sick person does that.
I feel really sorry for that old bag in the photo.You know the one buy two and get one free as long as you are forthcoming with the wages!
Her Batteries have gone dead like her, I drove past the other day and she's still there.
Appleton was going to push her in and charge her up but the leccy is switched off.
