Adkins continues his Saints evolution

Daily Echo: Jason Puncheon scores against Wolves Jason Puncheon scores against Wolves

Pre-season campaigns are all about learning, and there were plenty of lessons for Saints to take from their 2-0 victory against Wolves at the weekend.

Off the field, there was a probably a bit of head scratching as to why the crowds at the home friendlies have been so sparse, given the excitement of Premier League promotion.

Arguably more importantly, on the pitch Nigel Adkins continues to fine tune ahead of the big kick-off which is now less than a fortnight away.

In terms of the crowd, which for this game was officially given as just under 4,000 – which proved looks can be deceiving as to the naked eye it looked at best half that – there are some pointers.

The first is that it is bucking the Saints trend, going back a great many years, to have so many pre-season friendlies at home.

Increased costs The Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup, Ajax, Wolves and Udinese, who arrive next Saturday, is an awful lot.

To be totally fair to Saints, pre-season is always a struggle for crowds with people away on holiday and all but the most fanatical happy to take a break from football for the Olympics , the cricket , something else altogether, until the real action starts.

Also, the increased costs of watching Saints in the Premier League has undoubtedly played a part.

The trick Saints may have missed is in their pricing, by charging a relatively decent amount – Wolves was the cheapest game at £15 for adults, £10 concessions and under-11s free with a paying adult.

Hampshire Cricket have proved for their game with Surrey later this month that people will come if you give them an incentive.

In their case, the CB40 game at The Ageas Bowl falls on the day Saints open their Premier League season at Man-chester City live on Sky.

They realised what that would do to their crowd and so gave tickets away for free.

They sold them out in no time at all.

From a business point of view, it is getting people through the door that will buy food and merchandise, hopefully inspire a new generation of fans who might not otherwise have come in, and give them reason to say they are embracing their community.

Saints have brought in about 10,000 for the Memorial Cup, 5,000 for Ajax and now 4,000 for Wolves.

The numbers from that might stack up, but there is the possibility that even with the euphoria of promotion they may not get a sold out stadium from the attendances of the four friendlies combined.

That seems a real shame.

However, the most important thing for many connected with the club will be preparations for things that take place when the players cross the white line.

That is what will define their pre-season this summer.

Make no mistake, there is a lot of work being done and it’s interesting to see it actually progress in front of your very eyes.

The new Saints formation is the major case in point.

It looks increasingly likely now that Nigel Adkins will, for the start of the season at least, leave behind the 4-4-2 that has helped the club to back-to-back promotions for a new 4-3-2-1 system.

Like all formations it is fluid, at times looking like a 4-3-3, more often like a 4-5-1.

But the evolution of it in pre-season and the improvement in the understanding of the players, clearly drilled by Adkins and his team in between the games, is clear.

Formations don’t win or lose matches, players do, but they certainly have a part to play.

There is no perfect formation out there, or everybody would be using it and would have done for years now.

But for every manager it is about finding the best way to utilise the players at his disposal.

And for Adkins there is the added problem of stepping up to the big time to face teams who boast some of the best footballers in the world.

No longer will Saints be the big boys, as they have found themselves in the last few years. It will be they who are the underdogs.

Cautious formation With that in mind, perhaps a more cautious formation is being thought of.

Saints do not want to be overrun, they do not want to get outnumbered in midfield, they do not want to be exposed out wide.

But the trick is to balance that with maintaining the ability to score goals and to get forward in numbers.

Adkins appears to have settled on what he believes is the best way to cope in the top flight. Now it is all about getting the players to understand it.

The key for Saints will be not to drop too deep, to get sucked in to having a back four on the edge of their own area with the midfield five just in front and the lone striker chasing about in his own half as the opposition pass the ball along their backline.

All right, it would make Saints hard to break down, but with the quality in the top flight the best teams will probably find a way on most occasions and it leaves Saints with few options when they do win the ball.

They are not helped by a lack of pace to counter attack or to quickly support the lone front man, and it’s clear how valuable it is from Nathaniel Clyne’s impressive pre-season forays forward from right back.

saints have been caught with their pants down with regards to ticket prices. absurd prices for friendlies considering how many are actually at st marys. they need to get real. surely 15,000 fans paying £5 each is better than 4,000 paying £15 considering the additional revenue from food/drink and merchandise.

The reason I haven't been to pre-season is purely a pricing issue. £15 to watch a friendly against Wolves? You're having a laugh after I just shelled out £700 for a season ticket. Friendlies should be free for season ticket holders and anyone else should have to pay no more than a fiver, with kids being let in for free. Typical Premier League money grabbing already!

This tactics debate is good, I think a lot of teams will be adopting these types of formations this season. I think Nige will want to be positive as opposed to packing midfield to be defensive. The likes of Lallana are to good going forward for that. Really can’t wait now! I wish I could have a crystal ball to see how we’ll fair. Nervous but cautiously optimistic! COYRs

The Club has already sent out many very clear messages that "we're now Premier League" and a lot of them are very dismissive of the regular fan. Like the last PL journey, a season-ticket snobbery is being invoked, and the hiking of other prices is part and parcel of this in an attempt to give credibility. I suggest that fans communicate any concerns back to the club soon or resort to the 'feet and seat talking' bit. The transient evolution of the 'average' Saints fan will have been happening quietly over the close-season and regular STH (and any others able to get in) will notice this change on their return to seats next season. There will be many 'in that number' that don't share that same sense of loyalty as many of the regulars on here, and Saints will do well to reconsider this short-term marriage of convenience. Many are only season-ticket holders because they feel they need to, if this is 'market-forces' then Mr Cortese and co. should indeed look more closely on the other side of this gilded coin.

Agreed.
Perhaps the All Red strip is a clear indication from the club that this is not The Saints that you've come to know and love?
Previous regimes -for good and bad- have usually communicated their reasons for change, and pricing, one way or the other.

I am one of those supporters that clubs love. I just stop short of turning up to see the shirts dry! However its not fans(mugs?) like me that they should look to be encouraging. I agree with other posters the pricing is wrong. The club may have failed to notice there is another sporting event taking place at the moment that is attracting peoples attention.
I would suggest that if ticket prices were half of the price, they would have attracted more than twice as many customers.
No matter how you dress them up these games are non compeditive training games,a fact that surely needs to be reflected in the price.
See you next at City Saints ( Manchester not Bristol!)

Can't disagree with what St Retford said there, completely ridiculous making a big deal about this the ground will be sold out when Wigan and the rest come to town which is all that matters. It is good to be getting wins under the belt early and everyone seems to be getting some action as well. I do though agree that £15 is a bit steep for a pre season game and I much prefer the fairly local away trips pre season on a Saturday ala Yeovil last year but obviously I can understand why they are not doing that this year

I'm sure the manager gets a lot from it, so do the support staff and the players with all the GPS readouts etc. But its no longer a game that is worth watching for the fans.

Not "real" supporters, just status seekers who like to talk about their team being in the "Premier League", down the pub.

Well chaps, you missed the real football, against the real teams, and the glory of the real fight back. Shame really, you might have enjoyed it.

Welcome back to the prawn sandwiches and ego trip. Oh yes, and the likely struggle against relegation. You will remember that no doubt. Perhaps? Or more likely if we are not in the top half of the PL by Xmas you might just leave your seat vacant for the second half of the season.

The "New" STH holders who annoy me are the ones who left when we were relegated and have now come back after an absence of 7 years

Not "real" supporters, just status seekers who like to talk about their team being in the "Premier League", down the pub.

Well chaps, you missed the real football, against the real teams, and the glory of the real fight back. Shame really, you might have enjoyed it.

Welcome back to the prawn sandwiches and ego trip. Oh yes, and the likely struggle against relegation. You will remember that no doubt. Perhaps? Or more likely if we are not in the top half of the PL by Xmas you might just leave your seat vacant for the second half of the season.

Welcome Home. We need you!
George George George,,,,I have been to every home game since relegation from the top flight and I am a new season ticket holder this year, I went up and down the country in League one and the CCC.

No need to welcome me back, I never went away (apart from watching Saints) I just couldn't afford shell out a load of my hard earned all at once, now I don't have to I have season ticket.

I don't eat prawn sandwiches nor do I go on ego trips and I don't seek any status, how dare you call me NOT a real fan.

See my Slugger comment. I'm talking about people who wouldn't go to home matches in the Championship because it was beneath them. Never mind League 1. Then turn up at the JPT Final at Wembley having paid £150 for a posh seat with Lunch.

I think you are a bit optimistic if you want to see 60,000 in the ground. I think there is the potential for 40 to 45,000. 60,000 for a provincial club is I think a bit over the top.

Preseason friendlies are designed to help Nigel and his team assess the squad and try things. Yes, the prices could be lower (£10 an adult sounds right), but moneymaking is not the aim of these matches, so I doubt the attendance seriously bothered NC.

One thing I couldn't believe is that the queues were so long for food/drink. I felt sure I could get a cup of tea at half-time...no chance. Extra members of staff might have increased sales and paid for themselves.

There are always those who go on about the blokes who only come to see Premiership football...I couldn't care less!
The points is about all the cost associated with following a football club week in and week out. It's not just ticket prices - is it?
I can't understand the superiority complex people seem to have because they have a season ticket. I've never owned one, for me they were for old people who couldn't stand up for a game!!! Now it's all about having one to wave a supporters who turn up now and again!
I know Slugger has got one now...I bet he doesn't ram it down our throats with Puppy & Baddersley Bill. Pay your money and take your choice...these guys have.
I do my bit, nothing will ever stop me being a Saints fan (apart from death) and nothing gives me more pleasure than going to a match for a couple of beers and the game itself.
I watched the Ajax game on TV but didn't get the same enjoyment as being there live. I'm not a big fan of friendlies - so no bones on ticket prices.

For some season ticket holders it's not just a case of turning up for the friendly games as we live so far away.

There are 3 of us who regularly travel down from North London every other week (and Tuesday nights over the past few year).

Even if they were FOC, I don't think I'd come down; don't get me wrong it's nice to see new players, formations etc, but I can hear that via Saints Player and watch the highlight the following day.

I am sure our first game at home to Wigan will be a sell-out - god knows we'll need the points to take us through the next 2 games.

Momentum is the name of the game, and that stupid FC PC clearly didnt like us!

Agreed, totally. I lived watching us in the lower league but it delights me that new fans are coming on board.

I welcome them, it is the only way our great club can develop, every fan is welcome.

See my Slugger comment. I'm talking about people who wouldn't go to home matches in the Championship because it was beneath them. Never mind League 1. Then turn up at the JPT Final at Wembley having paid £150 for a posh seat with Lunch.

I think you are a bit optimistic if you want to see 60,000 in the ground. I think there is the potential for 40 to 45,000. 60,000 for a provincial club is I think a bit over the top.
I think the debate about making the ground bigger was answered Saturday

He's suggesting that the low attendance at a meaningless pre-season friendly is some kin dof indicator of Saints' general level of support.

What a plank.

Last season he was on here saying that he didn't see Adkins still being manager this year. Shows how much notice you should be taking of his analysis.

We have had some poor attendances last season in cup games and now in friendlies, for a very astute man cortese has missed something here. Surely a thick tw4t like you would have to agree that cheaper tickets= more attending + more food and drink sold, is better?
Also the bookies have Adkins favourite for the sack, I never said I want him gone just a feeling I get. For the record I think he has a lot of potential and deserves a descent chance of managing in the premier league.

Hi all,

THe attendance at this game is meaningless. I, for instance, love Saints and go to a few games a year when I'm here, used to be every game when I was younger and didn't have other calls on my money, but I've only ever been to one friendly (the Mick Channon testimonal a few days after a certain event in '76), because they aren't games; they are kick-arounds. Without a competition involved, they aren't worth watching. In my opinion, they should be free since the game is going to played anyway, as it's for match practice and trrying formations, rather than anything else.

Would you pay to have watched Murray and Federer knocking a few balls around at Wimbledon the day before their final, maybe bringing Nadal and Boris bleedin' BEcker on half-way through the third set becuase they didn't want to play a full game? Or would you pay to watch the final? Well, I wouldn't pay for either as I can't stand tennis, but I'm sure you get my point.

I will pay for a football game, but not to watch a practice. There's a great quote by Miles Davis that I'm sure would be apt here, if only I could remember it!

What a plank.

Last season he was on here saying that he didn't see Adkins still being manager this year. Shows how much notice you should be taking of his analysis.
Name calling your level gayiety?

Would any uniteds, Leeds, Newcastle or man have 4000 turn up?

We have had some poor attendances last season in cup games and now in friendlies, for a very astute man cortese has missed something here. Surely a thick tw4t like you would have to agree that cheaper tickets= more attending + more food and drink sold, is better?
Also the bookies have Adkins favourite for the sack, I never said I want him gone just a feeling I get. For the record I think he has a lot of potential and deserves a descent chance of managing in the premier league.
I do rather appear to have touched a nerve.

However, fighting is just too common for me, I'm afraid, so I don't plan to rise to your bait.

I think it displays a bit of a small town mentality if you get massive numbers through the door to watch a friendly against a team that has just been relegated from the Premiership. It's like "Wooh! This is as good as it's going to get this season - let's all pack in for this one."

Out of interest, how many did Pompey get in for their Bolton game?

Some people not getting the point.
Spell it out time:
Just as the corporate areas of the ground will be swollen for the great PL fest, so quite a lot of ST will be taken up by people/businesses who can afford them and don't mind them being unfilled or will sell off individual fixtures at a profit. This happened last time in the PL and is much more likely to happen this time around. The chances of non STH picking up tickets for chosen games have decreased considerably and with no active Membership system in place this is another way of disenfranchising a large number of the support whilst engaging many 'new' fans. The club needs to consider whether it wants to be written off as another 'fast-buck' merchant or wants to engage more fully with a growing fanbase. Careful how you tread Saints, there are only so many potential customers, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Many of us on here have seen the divide and rule regime fall very heavily on it's face in the past, and recognise that true fans are in it for the long-haul and not instantly identifiable by their STH status.

I think this could be a previously undiscovered dialect of the skuntish language.It's seems to be very much like gibberish,only a bit less understandable.
