Adkins: We have to be ruthless

Nigel Adkins insists his players have to be more ruthless, after watching Saints lose 2-0 at home to Wigan.

Premier League football returned to St Mary’s this afternoon following a seven-year absence, but the day ended in disappointment thanks to goals from Franco Di Santo and Arouna Kone.

Adkins, whose side have now lost their opening two fixtures, admitted there are lessons that must be learned.

“It’s a relentless division,” he conceded. “We had opportunities to score and we haven’t taken them.

“You’ve got to be ruthless when you get them, and the goalkeeper’s obviously made some good saves.

“But the harsh reality is you’re going to get punished in this division. Wigan have gone and scored two good goals. Kelv’s probably not had anything else to do for the rest of the game.

“But that’s the division that we are in.”

The Saints boss added: “I think when you look at it we’ve come out with a gameplan, a formation to go and be assertive. We’ve gone and done that against a good footballing side, but the goals change games a little bit.”

in my opinion being ruthless must include dropping Fonte who looked completely out of his depth today. Too many passes went astray and that error for the goal that settled it was shameful. I trust NA to realise this and sort it this week although I will confess I am twitchy about our lack of action in this transfer window, Faith in the current squad is admirable but please not blind faith.

lol oh my nothing like accurate reporting is there. The reason for the gaps is that Wigan being such a tiny club only brought about 1000 fans and one whole block was left empty as a result plus some Saints fans were no doubt away for the BH weekend

No need to panic, even if we lose to Man U and Arsenal in our next two games. This was always going to be a learning process, both for theplayers, the board, the manager, and the FANS!!!. This jump up to the premier league is a huge step up in class. If we thouht for one moment that we swan off to Switzerland for a few days, spend money on new signings.......and it'll all be hunkey dorey...we're all deluded. This is going to take time, take carefull consideration in buying premiership quality players, not any old tat that might be available. Spending money is the easy bit, getting the right players is the hard bit. If your going to climb Everest....you dont buy your gear from Argos. We must have more faith in NC and NA; look how far they ve brought this club in 2 years!.. they know we 're lacking in quality, in ALL AREAS of the park, i m sure this will be addressed in the coming weeks and months. More supprising than the loss; was the fact that St Marys was n't packed to the rafters for the first home game back in the top flight....i m sure NC did n't miss this either

Sorry Nige. goals dont change games a little, they change games a lot and as soon as Wigan scored today we were second best all over the park and never looked like getting anything from the game. NA says we had opportunity's to score but I'm afraid they were half chances at best and we never really opened Wigan up in open play. Wigan have been in this league for six seasons now and you can see why they are holding their own, they have quality and pace throughout the team and at the moment we dont. I'm not going to slag off any players its not their fault thay are not good enough its down to NA to make the tough decisions that need to be made and please, please get some quality and pace into the side otherwise its going to be a long season.

Agree about comments re Fonte, was caught out last season, made mistakes in friendlies and cost us 2 goals today. Never was a Fox fan either. Also felt the subs were like for like and Nigel did nothing to change the formation (Personally thought Guly started to stop his work rate in second half and surpirsed he was kept on). I too would like to have seen De Ridder and Chaplow on the bench. For me the most important piece in our puzzle is a replacement for Fonte ASAP.

Weak bench not a lot of options to change things.Our best player by far was Davis in midfield .Why spend £7M on a goal scorer and play him out wide.If your going to play within the squad then were limited to playing 4 4 2 .To many square pegs in round holes at the moment.If De ridder is not considered good enough to at least be on a home bench then you may as well sell him .Even scarier is the thought of Seaborne marking RVP

We saw a lot of "speculating to accumulate" at the unattractive end of the M27. They speculated and accumulated ... debt. Lots and lots of it.

Chelsea haven't speculated. They have invested.

Accountants are not governed by statistics. Accountants create statistics from figures.

Adkins is a premiership manager because he manages a team in the Premier League.

There are no Championship teams in the Premier League, because a Championship team has, by definition, got to be in the Championship.

Dear me, what a lot of fuss over nothing. This will turn out to be a 'good thing' - a result like this gives us a kck up the *rse and will only serve to guard against complacency and naivity in future lower table battles. If we had won today we would all have been saying how amazing we were only to go and do the same thing further down the line. It's happened and we need to learn from it, which is what Adking will do. We do need to strengthen as people say; CB/LB/ also some pace needed. It's a shame that the early fixtures almost certainly mean we'll be playing catch up for a while but that's the hand we're dealt. Two promotion in two seasons makes Adkins an amazing manager of a well run club. Don't panic, at least w're not languishing in league 1 with no money and no players. UTS.

We all knew that it was going to be a steep learning curve and coming up against seasoned Premier players it will take just a little while to get accustomed.

Just got back from the game, Up to now. couldnt find a lot of fault with Fonte, but it showed today Premier League standard he aint....tripped over his own bootlaces to let Wigan in for the 2nd goal, and looked dodgy all game.
Fox took a heavy knock in the first half, should of been substituted.
Guly started the game ok,but when things didnt go his way, soon lost interest as usual.
Hope for 2 CB's and a LB coming in this week....Foxy would make good enough cover if the LB got injured, but isnt gonna make it as a first choice, In NA and NC we must trust,,,COYR's

Time for standing shoulder to shoulder boys and girls, this was never going to be a duck shoot.
Its all about opinions-mostly worthless, but heres my 2 pence worth, I think at home we are good enough to be a bit gun ho and go with 4-4-2, we have the option of lambo with J rod or sharpy who was on fire in pre season.
But were badly missing a wild card,adam was fantastic and so was davis,but not sure if others are on the same level. Ok Yawn - ramirez fits the bill,tricky,clever and can unlock a padlock on a dark night-go get him.
Clyne looks like a very good player,but needs a pacy winger in front of him
on the same wavelength.
Oh and the subs were too late for me we were chasing the game after 60 minutes.
It cant all be hearts and flowers.
Cant see us treading water until the transfer window shuts,just need to add that bit of unpredictable flair.

It's disappointing that we did not get a result today but we have no divine right to win games in this division; most of the players lack experience at this level and are going to take time to find their feet , no getting away from the fact that we need an injection of pace to unlock defences in the premiership and a centre half of commanding statue but those who are quick to jump on the doom and gloom bandwagon probably have forgotten we were playing dagenham and Hartlepool 2 seasons ago, NA knows what he wants and how we will get there so have some faith; maintaining our premier league status and not breaking the bank is our goal for this season and if we finish one place below Wigan come the end of the year we will be safe

Wigan knew the immense value of 3 points and closed us out of the game after they scored.

Fonte is out of it at this level.

And why cannot KD distribute to the right?, every ball he kicks or throws goes left.

Investment needed.

Just got back to Somerset from the match.

I don't believe it was a lack of attack that lost us this game. We hit the bar twice and had at least three other good shots saved by their keeper.

Yes we can always try to create more chances and turn them, hopefully, into goals.

But we lost this game in defence. We have to learn, and quickly, that in this division mistakes in defence are going to be punished. We saw it last week with Fox for City's 3rd goal and we saw it today with Fonte for the 2nd goal and possibly the 1st too. And if the likes of Wigan can do it against us (no disrespect to them intended), all teams that will be in the top half of the league come the end of the season will also do it to us (plus other teams fighting to stay away from the relegation zone).

We were certainly the better team in the 1st half and up until the first goal went in. Then we went flat and allowed Wigan to dictate the pace and control possession of the ball.

And my opinion about Guly, he put a good shift of hard work in today up until the last 15/20 minutes (as he did against City imo). But then he reverted to the Guly that frustrates us all. But he was no worse than the rest of the team in the fourth quarter of the match. Wigan also worked out how to control and contain Lambert midway through the 2nd half.

Clyne looks a very good buy and (midfielder) Davies looks a useful acquisition. But Rodriquez wasn't really in the game today, possibly because he was played out wide.

Ignore the skunts, we have more to worry about with our own team.

Today we were shown that in this league you need a strong backbone in your side with pace to counter attack. We have not got this at the moment. Jose Fonte has been good for our club but, i m o he is not up to the level of skill needed.

We need pace so that we have the option to go forward much much quicker than we did today. Today we were a Championship side playing against a Premiership side. In the first half Wigan sat back and sused us out. They let us play our football acoss the back four and keep the ball.They had a point and we were not putting them under the cosh. Their manager never left the touch line and was directing play from there. Second half they went up one gear and the game was over. J R on the wing is not in the game for long periods and i think is wasted. Fox another player like Jose, out of his depth in this league. I like the boy Davis in midfield and was surprised when taken of instead of Gully. Gully has obvious skills but not a brain to be quick enough to put them to good use. Spiderman and Lallana with Davis will get better as the season unfolds.The young ward-Prowse is good cover for any of the three i have mentioned,

We will get better and start to win games against sides like Wigan only if we strenghten and learn from the mistakes we made today. These are only my thoughts and i will still be 110% behind the team whoever plays.

People seem to keen to point the finger at Guly. But I am more annoyed with the attitude we had ad am cocerned about NIgels Comment

"I think when you look at it we’ve come out with a gameplan, a formation to go and be assertive."

I think that they stuck with gameplan to try and be patient and retain possession even when 1-0 down against a side that was happy to give saints possession as long as it was in our own half.

The last 30 minutes where agony to watch. Fox recievig the ball on the left, turning back and making the easy pass and starting again.

We need to mix it up and play more direct at times especially against a well drilled Premiership team that are happy to nick a 1-0 win

I said before the game that I would like to see Sharp start alongside Lambo, their goalie has a habit of playing patacake and a good poacher could have capitalised on that, it was too late by the time he was brought on.

Why buy J Rod and play him on the wing with Guly as striker?

NA said that Guly worked hard Pre season so he's earnt his first team place but he's not good enough for prem. It sometimes seems as NA doesn't know where to put him. Spent alot of last season on right, and whenever he swapped him for De Ridder, the game changed.

Sharp doesn't have the pace, but will score goals.

Bottom line is we need to buy some quality. Rumours of Tuncay, feel we need a out and out stiker.

And a CB and LB!

I know the best form of defence is attack but last week we had all eleven men in defence which usually means the attack doesn't have faith in the defence so please tell me I'm wrong if you were there but we need a better defence don't we?

How many kicks up the @rse do you think will be needed?

Man City delivered one when they came from behind, and now Wigan, a town more noted for Rugby, delivered another kick today.

That's one kick delivered away from home and the second on home turf. How long before the kicks are delivered instead of being received?

Guly had great first half faded second half but still had quality touches in amongst the disappointing performances after Wigan scored. It's a point that has been made before on this site that this who actually play footie get Guly. How anyone can single out Guly today for criticism is beyond me. My take on the game - good first half but didn't take chances and their keeper made three excellent saves. Wigan punished our mistakes because they are PL quality and last season we got away with it in the Championship. Wigan kept the ball well and played as a unit to their strengths, and deserved their win. Our defence will be exposed again and again until better players come in, with pace. Most disappointing today was the lack of support after Wigan scored, and the mass exodus after Wigan's second. Suspect it might have been first time at SMS for some of them. Some of the moaning comments and texts to Radio Solent are unbelievable.

Agee with you both - It's amazing how quickly it can turn in this league. We are taking a long term view at this club with youth development as well as established squad development by signing young,hungry players who may not have reached their full potential yet (Clyne, J. Rod) Adkins is young in management terms and is too developing - I sincerely hope we continue to look to the long term and follow Everton, Man U, and Arsenal to acheive cotinued success and stability.

Why do you use saint in your title when it is obvious that you aren't, probably not gay either, 29,604 was the official ticket sales figure, there were a number of plastics using this ticket to ensure a seat at the Manure game, probably didn't turn up at the match. With the new OS being very difficult to navigate and little if any information on the number of tickets sold it is very off putting for last minute people to come along on the day. With 2,000 absent Wigan fans I am sure these seats could have been sold if they had been made available and advertised. The cameras are behind the crowd in the Kingsland which was nearly full but not obvious from the camera angles. You could hear a pin drop when Wigan scored their first, Saints fans in shock and Wigan fans who couldn't believe their luck, good goal though.

you are the worst type of person on this site, now i dont mind a good debate with the fishy few as you never win! but you are an idiot you obviously have a dislike of the saints and i have no probs with that, but you also appear to be homophobic (hates gays, as such a big word). you try to wind us up and goad us, and again no problem with that, however your statments are so easily rebuked i sometimes wonder why any of us bother! but here goes.
1. st marys holds 32689. todays attendance 29604, so can you do the maths on you fins sorry fingers, no here you are then empty seats is 3085. now wigan did not sell out so take say 1500 off of that leaves around 1500 empty saints seats.
2. so if there were around 1500 wigan fans today out of 29604 that would give a attendance by saints fans of around 28000.
28000 saints fans today thats probabley double the amount of fans at your local, pack the park, derby last week!
3. 3085 empty seats is less than 10% of capacity. half of that saints so around 4% of our allocation empty.

Just seen a friend off after a dinner party. He spent the best part of Monday trying to book three seats for today's game but couldn't get three seats together in any section, so he ended up not going.

Looking round the ground today there were any number of sets of three seats. The first section in the Itchen was about 1/3 empty.

Looks like the management team may have to have words with the new ticketing company and find out what the hell is going on.

29000 divided by 3 means 9666. They must have been on the roof then?

Bit of a p1ss off as every man and his dog has been saying need a centre back and nothing has happened. Adkins has got to take a stronger hand with la don as his reputation is at stake.
Guly should have been off after 60/70 mins as he was ball bagged.

After a nights sleep, on reflection it is obvious that the current set of players will not be good enough to survive the season. Unfortunately, two successive defeats probably raises more questions than answers. Positions that NA thought were OK now become problem ones and if the last week of the transfer window is to be productive, then perhaps the money available will have to be spread more thinly on more players. I've never been a fan of last week transfer buys as it gives the impression of 'panic buying'. On yesterdays performance, particularly second half, there are so many weaknesses, NA would need to buy a new team, Lallana excepted, so we have to trust that some players had an 'off' day and will play better. As an ex-pat living abroad it is great to be able to see Saints on TV regularly, but it dont do much for the nerves!

Half full, wow I didn't realise our stadium could hold 60,000 now. When did that happen. Looked the same size to me today though.

Just under 30k is not half full in a stadium that holds 32,500! Wigan also had a huge block of allocation that they didn't fill.

Overall I had a great day out yesterday, although the result and performance clearly disappointing and it was ridiculously expensive.

Whilst we can make individual criticisms, we just looked very lack lustre as a collective. We lacked real pace and creativity and never applied sustained pressure. Wigan just soaked us up and then taught us a lesson of how to hold and pass the ball in the second half.

RL was disappointing but I guess so were most of them save for AL. Why NA persists with Guly is a mystery.

I didnt think we needed to strengthen up front but based on yesterdays performance and based on the fact we had no impact players off the bench we certainly do. That was the alarming thing yesterday, I never had the confidence that someone could come off the bench and do a job for us. We need something like this:-

Forward - Jordan Rhodes, Gary Hooper or possibly Michael Owen.

Midfield - We need creativity. Ramirez is a must, if not Phillips or Ince.

Defence - Olsson for LB and 1/2 centre halfs. Michael Dawson would be awesome.

However, I worry about our ability in the transfer market. So many slip through the net. What was the name of that Tunisian centre half who was signing last year but was vocal in saying that he would never sign because of how NC was doing business?? So, overall, plenty to worry about.

We need a minimum of four. Now go and get them, otherwise Redknapp could be back quicker than we thought!!!!!(Joke).

My concern is that NA is another Neil Warnock ,a manager that excels in getting the best out of average players with his man management skills at a lower level but struggles at the top level.Also his transfer dealings are not great compared toPardew or maybe its NC who has taken on that role .It seems we are upsetting every club we attempt to deal with

Nothing I had not feared (although hoped it wouldn't be the case) as Wigan were very good at the end of last season and did well against Chelsea after horror start last week.

It was always more than likely we would be in a relegation battle this season and having conceeded five goals (two down to horrendous individual errors which do not belong in any standard of football) and not scored at home it is noiw evident clear we will have to improve to survive.

It is early days so lets get to work and do that starting with a point or three against United.

I think NC believes too much the Don Cortese persona and tries to run rough shod over other chairmen, remember this is the guy who asked NA to quit Scunthorpe so we wouldn't have to pay compensation.
Guly had great first half faded second half but still had quality touches in amongst the disappointing performances after Wigan scored. It's a point that has been made before on this site that this who actually play footie get Guly. How anyone can single out Guly today for criticism is beyond me. My take on the game - good first half but didn't take chances and their keeper made three excellent saves. Wigan punished our mistakes because they are PL quality and last season we got away with it in the Championship. Wigan kept the ball well and played as a unit to their strengths, and deserved their win. Our defence will be exposed again and again until better players come in, with pace. Most disappointing today was the lack of support after Wigan scored, and the mass exodus after Wigan's second. Suspect it might have been first time at SMS for some of them. Some of the moaning comments and texts to Radio Solent are unbelievable.
Absolutely spot on. The criticism on Radio solent was appalling. I went on 606 to say just that. This is a big week as we need to buy some quality but am disappointed that the stadium went quiet after Wigan scored, last May seemed a long way off!NA got it wrong yesterday but he held his hands up and we all move on TOGETHER.

Nothing unexpected today..last season we scored the most but missed scores of chances...chances we were never going to get in the Prem..

Reading at home was a perfect example of what we could expect, give a team prem team ahint of goal and thea will finish we however are to wasteful..

Giving the ball away cheaply again as per Reading was always going to be punished...and we still cannot head the ball in defence...

If these areas are not addressed we will suffer terribly and confidence will be hammered, I am suprised signings or not that this has not been ingrained into our players.

If you listen to NC I don't think NA will be afforded the option of relegation.NC has been successful in life and won't except failure.If I'm honest the squad has almost no prem experience and lacks quality but has a good spirit.But continuos losses will knock that spirit

Got to agree with this ..... (posted at 7.26pm yesterday) and most of the posts that followed up to about 8pm (not BigFella777's usual pathetic rubbish, of course) and SaintJock's later comment.

It feels a bit like the first day of the new school year in September. We've had a fantastic school holiday (back-to-back promotions and all that) and now we've had our first - harsh - lesson and been given loads of homework from a b4st4rd of a teacher. No bad thing in the long run, but we have to get on top of it soon.

Busy week in Marchwood, Blackpool, Italy, France and Japan methinks!

OK you are right of course, only teasing, imo you are a better supporter than those plastics! They are going to be disappointed as Rooney looks to be out for four weeks. We will still expect to be given another football lesson next Sunday are you going or watching on the box?

The result didn't surprise me that much so I wasn't that disappointed. It could have been a different game but for two inches of woodworkon Adam's shot.

But a win yesterday could have induced a little overconfidence. All this will have sharpened the quest for new signings this week and maybe loosened the cheque book - signings we needed regardless of yesterday's result.

It could well be a blessing in disguise.

In any case it's far too early for gloom - like calling a bad year on January 7th.

Full marks to the many who stayed and cheered the team at the end. Negativity makes some feel better, but overall it's a destructive trait.

I agree with those saying that we need another CB, Fonte does not have competition for his place and feel comfortable with that!

Fox for me is a good player, but defensively needs to step up his game. He always givers too much space to the winger and this is why he seems slow.

For me the main problem is that NA is using the players in the wrong position for the formation he used. Lallana is a winger, he's not the playmaker; Guly is a playmaker, not a winger/striker, play him behind Lambert and we'll see how well he can play (but yes, he needs to show more interest during all his time on the pitch. If he is not doing that, plat Puncheon there.)

Jay-R needs time to learn to play as a winger if he's going to play there. But Steeeeve needs to be involved more in the team. Agree that if NA think he's not good enough to be on the bench, sell him!

Yesterday, after they changed to 4-4-2, young James Ward-Prowse played on the RM, almost as a winger. Why didn't Puncheon come on for that?

Never mind, two easy matches now with two wins and and we're back on track...............

Guly had great first half faded second half but still had quality touches in amongst the disappointing performances after Wigan scored. It's a point that has been made before on this site that this who actually play footie get Guly. How anyone can single out Guly today for criticism is beyond me. My take on the game - good first half but didn't take chances and their keeper made three excellent saves. Wigan punished our mistakes because they are PL quality and last season we got away with it in the Championship. Wigan kept the ball well and played as a unit to their strengths, and deserved their win. Our defence will be exposed again and again until better players come in, with pace. Most disappointing today was the lack of support after Wigan scored, and the mass exodus after Wigan's second. Suspect it might have been first time at SMS for some of them.

29000 divided by 3 means 9666. They must have been on the roof then?

Your friend is a knob like you then, why not get 2 together then 1 in front/behind. Bore off, don't want to hear any lame dumb a55 excuse why any1 didn't go, if a real fan you get over these things. Tw4t
What brought that on? I think it's because the other day I made you look a little foolish, didn't I?

Trying to make a positive point here, which is that the ticketing system was saying there wasn't speace when there clearly was.

If you want to fly off the handle and call me names, that's very clever, but it doesn't alter the fact that something's wrong when someone who wants to sit with his kids is incorrectly told there's no room, so three seats remain empty when there should have been a full house.

I streamed it in Yorkshire and I thought we were a bit unlucky - but as I predicted pre-season if we don't convert our chances, we are prone at the back and Premiership strikers won't miss!
Think some people should take a reality check - we are very new to this Premiership lark! As fans we should accept we will not win games every so often. We did the same last season - we will this! What happened to getting behind the team?
I honestly believe although working hard behind the scenes - we will not have any new signings to cheer by Friday 11pm. Ramirez was a pipe dream (although someone has rumoured 15-million Euros has been transferred to a bank in Balogna!). The Japanese defender - Phillips are all going to have to wait - probably until January.
Let's face it we have to step up a level as individuals and a team. It may be a step too far for many - and as fans we need to do the same!
Unfortunately I won't be attending as regularly this season - the cost of The premiership is a step too far for me. I have other priorities.
I would rather have Adkins in charge for the next 10-years and be a yo-yo club than have the constant change striving to stay a Premiership side.
Good luck Nigel and the team - let's give United a taste of Southampton at it's best next Sunday.
Of all the clubs I want to beat this season - United still is the one team. Ever since that muppet Kean jestured at the game that sent us down 7-years ago...Come on lads you can do it!

I think NC believes too much the Don Cortese persona and tries to run rough shod over other chairmen, remember this is the guy who asked NA to quit Scunthorpe so we wouldn't have to pay compensation.
Guly had great first half faded second half but still had quality touches in amongst the disappointing performances after Wigan scored. It's a point that has been made before on this site that this who actually play footie get Guly. How anyone can single out Guly today for criticism is beyond me. My take on the game - good first half but didn't take chances and their keeper made three excellent saves. Wigan punished our mistakes because they are PL quality and last season we got away with it in the Championship. Wigan kept the ball well and played as a unit to their strengths, and deserved their win. Our defence will be exposed again and again until better players come in, with pace. Most disappointing today was the lack of support after Wigan scored, and the mass exodus after Wigan's second. Suspect it might have been first time at SMS for some of them. Some of the moaning comments and texts to Radio Solent are unbelievable.
you must be seeing a different game to everyone else mate! lol
Well summed up
Guly only had a 93% pass completion rate, obviously not good enough in this League.

Just seen a friend off after a dinner party. He spent the best part of Monday trying to book three seats for today's game but couldn't get three seats together in any section, so he ended up not going.

Looking round the ground today there were any number of sets of three seats. The first section in the Itchen was about 1/3 empty.

Looks like the management team may have to have words with the new ticketing company and find out what the hell is going on.
As far as the seating is concerned I found the Saints Official site imposible to navigate to find out what exactly was available, the OS is too complicated, the ticketing issue is so paranoid that it has become imposible to find out what is available, there a lot of people who did not try to go because of the uncertainty, we may be in the Premier but there are still some issues that are not being addressed and I am sure it is costing the Club money.

Think some people should take a reality check - we are very new to this Premiership lark! As fans we should accept we will not win games every so often. We did the same last season - we will this! What happened to getting behind the team?
I honestly believe although working hard behind the scenes - we will not have any new signings to cheer by Friday 11pm. Ramirez was a pipe dream (although someone has rumoured 15-million Euros has been transferred to a bank in Balogna!). The Japanese defender - Phillips are all going to have to wait - probably until January.
Let's face it we have to step up a level as individuals and a team. It may be a step too far for many - and as fans we need to do the same!
Unfortunately I won't be attending as regularly this season - the cost of The premiership is a step too far for me. I have other priorities.
I would rather have Adkins in charge for the next 10-years and be a yo-yo club than have the constant change striving to stay a Premiership side.
Good luck Nigel and the team - let's give United a taste of Southampton at it's best next Sunday.
Of all the clubs I want to beat this season - United still is the one team. Ever since that muppet Kean jestured at the game that sent us down 7-years ago...Come on lads you can do it!
I think what gets some fans goat' is that its blatantly obvious we need signings and they're not being made.
We are entering the final/panic buy week and still short of quality. If I were dealing with saints I would put price up and so would the don!
More importantly we have players that will not get a game still on the books.
Dealings should have been done way before now so the squad and new members had time to gel and we wouldn't risk being held to ransom over players. And more importantly not lose must win games.

ive had enough of the moaners on here, we lost 2 games sack the manager sell all the squad panic buy in every position! we need to spend spend spend! give it a rest. i am so glad that we have nc and na in charge and not the lot on here (and i include myself in that) i have views on the squad and team but dont for 1 minute think its better than anybody else`s let alone nc and na.
and as for Kean, a player who deliberately set out to injure another player, also left his international teamates in the lurch by leaving just before a world cup because he didnt like the training facilities, and then he did that wave to the saints fans, i feel he should have been banned for life after admitting to setting out to injure another player (yes from management too). this is a man who bares a grudge for a long time. now itv see fit to employ him as a pundit! after seeing all he did above and more i cant belive he can sit in a room and criticise others in the game. so lets go stuff manure on sunday then we have Arsenal and a manager who loves our academy. 6 easy pts then

Most disapointing thing yesterday was the the epty seats. Everyone at the club has done a remarkable job and invested so much to get us back and look how are they rewarded. It really is pathetic and there are no excuses. They'llall be there next game though! If you watched matches on TV you wil not have seen so any vacant seats at anywhere else. Embarassing and shamefull.
Also I have never seen so many people leave games early as they do at our place. No matter whether we are winning, loosing or even drawing as soon as that clock hits 80 off they go. Idiots!! There is no need to. If you stayed you would see ther is no real difficulty getting away. I have never left before the end and nor will I. Do you leave the cinema 10 mins before the end!
Some of you so called fans do not deserve this club and they don't deserve you!

Why is Rodrigues playing wide left? he has a #9 on his back so should be in the middle with RL floating about around him. AL would have been more effective on the left. Do Prado is clearly not good enough at this level, we need more creativity down the flanks. Why no Chaplow or De Ridder on the bench?
Entire team very one-paced. Hopefully Tadanari will be available soon.

have you ever tried speaking to a real person at the TO it is a near impossible task.
NC has got to look at the way we are selling tickets because at the moment it is more touble then it is worth and this is sure to alienate the occasional supporter.
even when using the online booking system to actually find a seat you have to individualy view each block to find a spare seat. according to this EVERY seat is sold for manure next week. Even when i went to by my ST it said that the whole of block 3 was sold this is obviously not the case. when away tickets go on sale online the system crashes or it lets you buy more tickets then you are entitled to.there were tales of people by 6 or 7 tckets for the arsenal game that had not been to citeh.....this will cause problems later with distribution of the remaining tickets. when you try to ring the complaints department all you get is a recorded message saying that all operators are busy please call back later..............n
ot even a queuing system and even on constant redial it may take upto an hour to get through. Even last week at citeh according to one of the local plod because of an error at the Saints TO not all the tickets were sold or even made available to Saints fans The point i am trying to make is that Saints do not make it easy to purchase match tickets and only hav e themselves to blame for poor attendances either home or away.........RANT OVER!!!!

Blimey, you'd think it was the end of the world. 2 games and no real suprises weve lost both, could be a couple more losses before we win one as well. "Dont Panic"
Am a bit disappointed weve not bought anyone with premier league experience apart from Davis and I thought at the time of Rodrigues arrival "where was he going to play him" To me we have too many faces for the same shirt" but what do I know. NA is a diamond and performed wonders for the club as has NC although if im honest I dont like his style of management. Maybe he ruffles a few feathers but I warrant he will not settle for 17th. NA will need to produce or he'll be gone i reckon. I also reckon he will produce, the man has a terrific record is well respected by all who work with him. Give him and the team a chance. They'll be ok, we all have our opinions on who should play and how we should play but he's the man in the hot seat, trust him, he's done nothing wrong since he came here, he's learning, as is the team. We'll be ok, one or two signings maybe, maybe even back to 442 who knows but keep the faith, we'll be alright, I've got a small wager on a top ten finish and I'd rather start poor and finish well. Give the players a chance and the manager. They will come good and we will be among em. COYr

Having seen both games I would say we've has 3 good halves out of 4. I was impressed at half time yesterday but somewhat bemused by the second. We do need to stregnthen down the spine, sorry Jose, just don't think he can do it in this league. We do need some quality out wide as we use all the pitch but these are areas we're looking at I believe. I'm not panicing but want to see some more players in. I do think Lallana and Lambert are Prem players and also I think Spider and Clyne will get better.

Looking round the ground today there were any number of sets of three seats. The first section in the Itchen was about 1/3 empty.

Looks like the management team may have to have words with the new ticketing company and find out what the hell is going on.
As far as the seating is concerned I found the Saints Official site imposible to navigate to find out what exactly was available, the OS is too complicated, the ticketing issue is so paranoid that it has become imposible to find out what is available, there a lot of people who did not try to go because of the uncertainty, we may be in the Premier but there are still some issues that are not being addressed and I am sure it is costing the Club money.
Here's an idea...Try using a telephone and talk to a real person?
Thanks a lot for that advice have you tried lately, and besides you have to pay extra for transactions over the phone. The Echo could be broadcasting detailed information but of course club and newspaper aren't on speaking terms, It's time some people woke up to the fact that money is being wasted here, get it sorted.

Embarassing and shamefull.
Also I have never seen so many people leave games early as they do at our place. No matter whether we are winning, loosing or even drawing as soon as that clock hits 80 off they go. Idiots!!

The empty seats, might be down to actual cost of watching premiership football.

have you ever tried speaking to a real person at the TO it is a near impossible task.
NC has got to look at the way we are selling tickets because at the moment it is more touble then it is worth and this is sure to alienate the occasional supporter.
even when using the online booking system to actually find a seat you have to individualy view each block to find a spare seat. according to this EVERY seat is sold for manure next week. Even when i went to by my ST it said that the whole of block 3 was sold this is obviously not the case. when away tickets go on sale online the system crashes or it lets you buy more tickets then you are entitled to.there were tales of people by 6 or 7 tckets for the arsenal game that had not been to citeh.....this will cause problems later with distribution of the remaining tickets. when you try to ring the complaints department all you get is a recorded message saying that all operators are busy please call back later..............n

ot even a queuing system and even on constant redial it may take upto an hour to get through. Even last week at citeh according to one of the local plod because of an error at the Saints TO not all the tickets were sold or even made available to Saints fans The point i am trying to make is that Saints do not make it easy to purchase match tickets and only hav e themselves to blame for poor attendances either home or away.........RANT OVER!!!!

you can see it Adkins must see it but will he change it?
OK you are right of course, only teasing, imo you are a better supporter than those plastics! They are going to be disappointed as Rooney looks to be out for four weeks. We will still expect to be given another football lesson next Sunday are you going or watching on the box?
Osprey I watch it only on telly as I feel football is overpriced & the players over paid.
I played for Northwick in defence but I openly admit I love Rugby playing & watching but I like to see how Saints are doing.
Last season I said Saints need to strengthen the defence they haven't.
I was willing to give the goalie a go but after Man City I feel he could/should go.
Fox isn't premiership class & must go.
at Man.C we had 11men in defence why? no faith in the defence by the attack?
I could quite easily sit back & watch Saints go back down & get more youth into Rugby but I want to see this city do well at all sports but come on fans let's be honest about it

Have to admit I am a crap fan, as I was playing poker through the duration of the game. In my defence I did spit a hissy until they put the game on in the background.
So here’s what I saw, I thought we looked in charge in the first half but you have to take your chances. The crossings into their box looked mustard, but we didn’t get on the end of it.
Lallana is our general, what a refreshing touch of local class.

Second half, Wigan showed us what the Prem is all about. We seemed to be just chasing shadows. I’m sure most of us expected a win, but there you have it, every game will be a scrap.
We will be fine, as there are many points still to win and we will continue on our destiny of greatness.
Ps. How did the skunts get on?
PPs. I didn’t win either, bring on the next game

If this was the last four games of the season and we were in a comfortable position in the league it would not be so bad.

We have over 30 games to the end of the season and I know that NA has more understanding than me,( as he has proved over the past two seasons) what is needed I can live wth the present situation and feel optomistic about the future.

As I said before take one game at a time i.e By the inch its a cinch, by the yard its hard.

But a win yesterday could have induced a little overconfidence. All this will have sharpened the quest for new signings this week and maybe loosened the cheque book - signings we needed regardless of yesterday's result.

It could well be a blessing in disguise.

In any case it's far too early for gloom - like calling a bad year on January 7th.

Full marks to the many who stayed and cheered the team at the end. Negativity makes some feel better, but overall it's a destructive trait.

It's Manure next and there is nothing better than smashing them.

That is what is needed. Playing football in a full stadium and smashing in goals as if lives depended on it.

then tickets for the toothless arse-nil and smash and grab to take all 3 points.

Nigel and the Team - get a f@cking grip and make it happen.

Next league game plastic manure supporters will be flooding the josh tree etc - Who the f@ck are they ?

WE ARE THE MIIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

WE ARE RED ARMY.

It is the call to arms for all Saints Supporters.

THERE IS NO SURRENDER.

In any League it is a f@cking struggle .... playing dirty Leeds or in League One all the northern grounds.

WE'VE GOTTA GET BETTER AND NOW !!!

Every effort must be made. treat each game as a must win Cup Final and get the goals hitting the back of the net. We have talented players who can score goals.

Yesterday was not good enough - but next week it must be

BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS.

The Players must give everything on the pitch - for themselves and the supporters,

Red Army is linked to the success of the Club.

WE MUST DO EVERYTHING TO WIN OUR NEXT GAME.

But a win yesterday could have induced a little overconfidence. All this will have sharpened the quest for new signings this week and maybe loosened the cheque book - signings we needed regardless of yesterday's result.

It could well be a blessing in disguise.

In any case it's far too early for gloom - like calling a bad year on January 7th.

Full marks to the many who stayed and cheered the team at the end. Negativity makes some feel better, but overall it's a destructive trait.
Well said.

It is waaay too early for gloom, but as usual the pint-half-empty brigade are looking for scapegoats and moaning.

Where is the faith the belief, the passion. Ye Gods I look to Confucious and Red Army for these traits.

Hold firm gentlemen we will prevail as the season progresses. All who write us off now will be in for some big surpises by the end of the season.

There is work to be done without doubt.. but we are Southampton and WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE.

Didn't we beat Carlisle 4-1 when we were in League 1??? skunts are good then......ha ha
Anyway back to the Premier League Forum.
Yesterday was a disappointment there's no denying but as other more clued up supporters have already stated, we are only two games into the season and we all knew this League was not going to be easy.
Silly mistakes by certain players have undoubtedly cost us in both games and need addressing sooner rather than later.
I agree with several posters that experienced "help" is required at centre back, left back and possibly in the creative area of midfield/winger.
If the Ramirez transfer is now a dead duck which I feel probably is and was a tad over ambitious in the first place, I'd prefer Saints to look a bit closer to home and see if they could do a double swoop for Ince and Phillips from Blackpool.
The Japanese centre half could be a bit of a gamble in this league so I'd prefer someone with PL experience.
I'm sure NA and the team will add a couple of new faces before Manure come to St Marys and the place will be a full house and rocking.
We normally play well against Manure and they aren't exactly firing on all cylinders and have a few injury problems.
A point against them would be decent return but I feel this could be the best time to play them and get a result that will ignite our season.
Here's hoping for a busy week of signings and a cracking game next week

I think new people posting is good and should be welcomed rather than it becoming a cozey little clique of like minded people.

For whats it worth my opinion is Adkins is doing a great job BUT we can not and must not let the strange decisions go unnoticed and unmentioned. For example why play Guly and Jay out of position. Why only make a substitution yesterday with only 20 mins to go when the 28k Saints fans could see changes were required earlier. And the biggy lack of action in key areas in transfer market. Yes I fully understand it's not the same as signing players on computer games but Adkins does seem to be revelling in the fact he's left it late this season. This does not mean all his good points suddenly vanish but we can't all be as positive as you are Seedhouse but in my opinion just because someones opinion doesn't match yours doesn't make the view unimportant. And they may well have been supporting the club in League 1 etc just not posted here

Can I just say that I have been a STH for nearly 20 years and have followed the mighty Saints from years of Division One/Premiership survival to relegation to Championship to playoff heartache at Derby (where I thought the team played fantastically and if they had shown that spirit and fight in the 04/05 season might not have been relegated anyway) to staying up in the Champ under Pearson to relegation and admin and to 2 promotions.

I am a regular viewer but an occasional poster (although I used to post uner the psydonym of Saint Ted until I moved).

I never say my views are correct, but they are my views, and I'm also open minded enough to read other fans opinions (is it opinions or opinion's) and tend to agree with them (unless they're from a skunt!!!!)

I streamed it in Yorkshire and I thought we were a bit unlucky - but as I predicted pre-season if we don't convert our chances, we are prone at the back and Premiership strikers won't miss!
Think some people should take a reality check - we are very new to this Premiership lark! As fans we should accept we will not win games every so often. We did the same last season - we will this! What happened to getting behind the team?
I honestly believe although working hard behind the scenes - we will not have any new signings to cheer by Friday 11pm. Ramirez was a pipe dream (although someone has rumoured 15-million Euros has been transferred to a bank in Balogna!). The Japanese defender - Phillips are all going to have to wait - probably until January.
Let's face it we have to step up a level as individuals and a team. It may be a step too far for many - and as fans we need to do the same!
Unfortunately I won't be attending as regularly this season - the cost of The premiership is a step too far for me. I have other priorities.
I would rather have Adkins in charge for the next 10-years and be a yo-yo club than have the constant change striving to stay a Premiership side.
Good luck Nigel and the team - let's give United a taste of Southampton at it's best next Sunday.
Of all the clubs I want to beat this season - United still is the one team. Ever since that muppet Kean jestured at the game that sent us down 7-years ago...Come on lads you can do it!
I think what gets some fans goat' is that its blatantly obvious we need signings and they're not being made.
We are entering the final/panic buy week and still short of quality. If I were dealing with saints I would put price up and so would the don!
More importantly we have players that will not get a game still on the books.
Dealings should have been done way before now so the squad and new members had time to gel and we wouldn't risk being held to ransom over players. And more importantly not lose must win games.
True, but some clubs when finances are needed would take an offer in the last week to get the money in before the window shuts. It's all a gamble.

What happened to getting behind the team? I honestly believe although working hard behind the scenes - we will not have any new signings to cheer by Friday 11pm. Ramirez was a pipe dream (although someone has rumoured 15-million Euros has been transferred to a bank in Balogna!). The Japanese defender - Phillips are all going to have to wait - probably until January. Let's face it we have to step up a level as individuals and a team. It may be a step too far for many - and as fans we need to do the same! Unfortunately I won't be attending as regularly this season - the cost of The premiership is a step too far for me. I have other priorities. I would rather have Adkins in charge for the next 10-years and be a yo-yo club than have the constant change striving to stay a Premiership side. Good luck Nigel and the team - let's give United a taste of Southampton at it's best next Sunday. Of all the clubs I want to beat this season - United still is the one team. Ever since that muppet Kean jestured at the game that sent us down 7-years ago...Come on lads you can do it![/p][/quote]I think what gets some fans goat' is that its blatantly obvious we need signings and they're not being made.

I typed in your user name and there is a trail of destruction in your wake, a pathetic small minded individual with no social skills due to his unsettled upbringinging. Just one quote below:

You really are a sad, sick and damaged person who really does need help ( psychiatric help ).

You truly are one of the most offensive foul mouthed people I have ever had the misfortune to have dealings with.

You have no respect for anybody or anything ( except it seems , your football team ), how pitiful can you get.

Virtually everybody on this site except for the likes of you, has a respect for the views of other people, even when those views are not to their liking. They certainly don't have to resort to bad language and personal insults to put across their point of view.

For heavens sake get off this forum ( a forum for football thugs, might be more to your liking ).

If I was from Southampton I would be ashamed that you come onto this forum and attack everybody including the very people who live in Southampton. You also appear to have nothing positive at all to say about Southampton, if it is that bad then Southampton would be better off if you went somewhere else ( only please don't come to Liverpool, because you won't be welcome ).

Nobody from up North has ever made nasty comments that are in anyway as bad as those made by andysaints007

I think new people posting is good and should be welcomed rather than it becoming a cozey little clique of like minded people.

For whats it worth my opinion is Adkins is doing a great job BUT we can not and must not let the strange decisions go unnoticed and unmentioned. For example why play Guly and Jay out of position. Why only make a substitution yesterday with only 20 mins to go when the 28k Saints fans could see changes were required earlier. And the biggy lack of action in key areas in transfer market. Yes I fully understand it's not the same as signing players on computer games but Adkins does seem to be revelling in the fact he's left it late this season. This does not mean all his good points suddenly vanish but we can't all be as positive as you are Seedhouse but in my opinion just because someones opinion doesn't match yours doesn't make the view unimportant. And they may well have been supporting the club in League 1 etc just not posted here
I've no problem with differing view points. However, there have always been a few that post criticism when things aren't going well but stay off when things are good. Why would you do that?

New posters are a good thing as long as they don't just bring negativity. For example we all want to see a full SMS but if you add negative people you'll have a flatter atmosphere in the Prem with 32k than with 21k in Div1.

You say NA has left things late. I don't think he's in charge of negotiations.

Can I just say that I have been a STH for nearly 20 years and have followed the mighty Saints from years of Division One/Premiership survival to relegation to Championship to playoff heartache at Derby (where I thought the team played fantastically and if they had shown that spirit and fight in the 04/05 season might not have been relegated anyway) to staying up in the Champ under Pearson to relegation and admin and to 2 promotions.

I am a regular viewer but an occasional poster (although I used to post uner the psydonym of Saint Ted until I moved).

I never say my views are correct, but they are my views, and I'm also open minded enough to read other fans opinions (is it opinions or opinion's) and tend to agree with them (unless they're from a skunt!!!!)

Thank you for your time

Who is dealing with transfer negotiations? Adkins is the manager.
I take it cortese is, but who is advising cortese of what price to go to? It should be Adkins as his ar5e is on the line.
I appreciate that transfers are complicated But they are an important part of the job. I don't think it's good from a footballing or business sense to leave it so late, same as when you go to the sales in town, get in early and grab a bargain! We are now in panic buy country, clubs know of our desperation and will add a couple of noughts on the end of any deals. Every man and his dog were shouting 'defender, fail to plan, plan to fail.
Also have to say our clip on motd made our ground look empty,I was there and I know it wasn't but seats must be sold. I've been saying this for months now that we must make sure every seat has an ar5e on it. Sales team or ticket pricing needs time spent on it.

It's "fans' opinions", Kings Lynn (or is it King's Lynn?) :)

The apostrophe (fans') comes after the S because there are two or more fans. If there was only one fan, it would be "fan's opinions".

So: "With such a bright future, the Southampton fans' faces all have smiles on them." (well, most of them!)

But: "He travelled the length of the country and saw his team lose 4-2, so the skunt's face looked as long as the M6 on a wet saturday evening."

Eeeeezzzzy!

Most disapointing thing yesterday was the the epty seats. Everyone at the club has done a remarkable job and invested so much to get us back and look how are they rewarded. It really is pathetic and there are no excuses. They'llall be there next game though! If you watched matches on TV you wil not have seen so any vacant seats at anywhere else. Embarassing and shamefull.
Also I have never seen so many people leave games early as they do at our place. No matter whether we are winning, loosing or even drawing as soon as that clock hits 80 off they go. Idiots!! There is no need to. If you stayed you would see ther is no real difficulty getting away. I have never left before the end and nor will I. Do you leave the cinema 10 mins before the end!
Some of you so called fans do not deserve this club and they don't deserve you!

Also I have never seen so many people leave games early as they do at our place. No matter whether we are winning, loosing or even drawing as soon as that clock hits 80 off they go. Idiots!! There is no need to. If you stayed you would see ther is no real difficulty getting away. I have never left before the end and nor will I. Do you leave the cinema 10 mins before the end! Some of you so called fans do not deserve this club and they don't deserve you![/p][/quote]The empty seats, might be down to actual cost of watching premiership football.[/p][/quote]And the silence is a lack of passion.. anothergaysaint

some singing is better than none at all.The whole ground need to raise their voices not just leave it to the Northam. If we dont sing then nobody does.
Unfortunately vocal support is proportional to the S***hole of a city you live in...

No denying portsmuff do volume better than us...but would you live there?
Why. It just pop over and learn about passion?

I hope they don't, but Saints look like they are going to struggle.
In any League it is a f@cking struggle .... playing dirty Leeds or in League One all the northern grounds.

WE'VE GOTTA GET BETTER AND NOW !!!

Every effort must be made. treat each game as a must win Cup Final and get the goals hitting the back of the net. We have talented players who can score goals.

Yesterday was not good enough - but next week it must be

BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS.

The Players must give everything on the pitch - for themselves and the supporters,

Red Army is linked to the success of the Club.

WE MUST DO EVERYTHING TO WIN OUR NEXT GAME.

RED ARMY. THE PRIDE AND THE PASSION. COYR.
Passion? Hahahaha. 28000 silent fans, half of them a bunch of moaners leaving before the end!

I think new people posting is good and should be welcomed rather than it becoming a cozey little clique of like minded people.

For whats it worth my opinion is Adkins is doing a great job BUT we can not and must not let the strange decisions go unnoticed and unmentioned. For example why play Guly and Jay out of position. Why only make a substitution yesterday with only 20 mins to go when the 28k Saints fans could see changes were required earlier. And the biggy lack of action in key areas in transfer market. Yes I fully understand it's not the same as signing players on computer games but Adkins does seem to be revelling in the fact he's left it late this season. This does not mean all his good points suddenly vanish but we can't all be as positive as you are Seedhouse but in my opinion just because someones opinion doesn't match yours doesn't make the view unimportant. And they may well have been supporting the club in League 1 etc just not posted here
Can I just say that I have been a STH for nearly 20 years and have followed the mighty Saints from years of Division One/Premiership survival to relegation to Championship to playoff heartache at Derby (where I thought the team played fantastically and if they had shown that spirit and fight in the 04/05 season might not have been relegated anyway) to staying up in the Champ under Pearson to relegation and admin and to 2 promotions.

I am a regular viewer but an occasional poster (although I used to post uner the psydonym of Saint Ted until I moved).

I never say my views are correct, but they are my views, and I'm also open minded enough to read other fans opinions (is it opinions or opinion's) and tend to agree with them (unless they're from a skunt!!!!)

Thank you for your time
It's "fans' opinions", Kings Lynn (or is it King's Lynn?) :)

The apostrophe (fans') comes after the S because there are two or more fans. If there was only one fan, it would be "fan's opinions".

So: "With such a bright future, the Southampton fans' faces all have smiles on them." (well, most of them!)

But: "He travelled the length of the country and saw his team lose 4-2, so the skunt's face looked as long as the M6 on a wet saturday evening."

Eeeeezzzzy!
Proffessor Stras,
Thank you for the grammar lesson,I'm sure we will all have benefitted from it.
I being of only a Comprehensive school background and also now a bit
forgetfull (age), somtimes maces a few mistakes.
Un fortuneately I will have to pull you up on your spelling.
Even when I was writing on my slate at school I could easily spell (EASY) correctly.

Sir,
I hope that has helped you,and it will not be used in anyway against me.
Hate the slipper.
Still got Dunlop etched on my @rse.
I am cr@p at lines and essays.
