Southampton manager Nigel Adkins not worried about losing his job

Daily Echo: NIGEL ADKINS NIGEL ADKINS

NIGEL Adkins insists he has no need to look over his shoulder – despite reports suggesting his job could be in jeopardy.

Saints have lost their first four matches back in the Premier League, leading to speculation that chairman Nicola Cortese , pictured, could look to replace him.

Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez and former Saints and Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp have been mentioned as potential candidates to replace Adkins.

However Adkins, who helped the club to back-to-back promotions from League One , insists such talk does not affect him.

He believes he will be at St Mary’s for the foreseeable future.

“It doesn’t affect me,” he said.

“I don’t read the newspapers. I’ve got a great working relationship with the chairman here at Southampton and we share a common goal.

“We’ve had a great couple of seasons and there is stability here at Southampton, so we don’t even think about things like that.

“I have got my own desire to keep winning games of football because we have that winning mentality here at Southampton.

“There is a desire that we keep being strong and improving.

“I think if you’re looking over your shoulder thinking ‘Well, if I don’t win this one’ your mind is going to be affected in different ways so I don’t even think about that.

“At some stage in the future, like in every job, there will be a parting of ways a long way down the line.

“All we are doing (right now) is concentrating on what we’re doing.

“There is stability at Southampton, we’re bringing the youth players through the system.

“We have just played Man United and Arsenal and they would have had difficult spells, but they kept stability and that is why they have been successful.”

Adkins, whose side face Aston Villa tomorrow aiming to get their first points of the season, insists that the bond of trust with Cortese is so strong that he has not even spoken to him about the reports about his future.

“We don’t need to talk about it,” he said.

“We have a really good dialogue, contrary to what many people believe.

“We have an excellent working relationship and we share the same common goal; we want Southampton Football Club to do well.

“We know there needs to be stability, we know there needs to be support. We drive each other on. There is nothing wrong with that.”

Harry Rednapp do me a favour,he's already relegated Saints once,that would be just ridiculous.
I think it will be a different story tomorrow,Yoshida is a fantastic defender if he can run the back line,Ramirez rampant in midfield plus Mayuka must play,he is lightning quick and would thrive on balls from Gaston.

No real Saint who shared the journey of the last two seasons would even consider dumping Nigel without at least a season long trial. We've bought new players who only now are meeting each other and beginning to train together. They need to adapt to a new club, new team mates, the Premier league and in some cases the UK. Only a fool thinks that happens over night.

The team that took the two Manchester's close was the team assembled in Div1 and the Chamionship. It can only get better.

The talk of NA being sacked is absolutely pathetic.
.
SFC have had enough instability over the last few years ( prior to take over ) now its time to reverse that trend.
.
NA and NC have done a fantastic job so far and long may it contiue.
.
We have just played what will possibly the top three clubs in the PL ... who are possibly three of the best teams in Europe ...... and to be honest we didnt expect to get much from those games.
.
We have a number of new players who have hardly played or even trained together much with their late arrival or International duty.
.
Better times are round the corner and will start on Saturday.

ANY SFC supporter who calls for NA to be sacked should be ashamed

All rubbish paper talk. NA got us 2 promotions. He is the most successful saints manager since Lawrie Mac.
Why would you change after a handful of games.
Personally I think because the newspapers get so little info from NC they want to stir up rubbish. NC has sacked 1 manager in 2+ years and we all know why. NA on to europe.

It probably should have been mentioned in the story that the only place where Redknapp and Benitez were being mentioned as replacements was the Daily Star, which is as close as you can get to a guarantee of there being no truth in it whatsoever.

Cortese has balls the size of Switzerland - there's no way he'd bottle it and bring in someone else after a couple of games.

Innit. When has Cortese EVER gone backwards with this club and brought in someone associated with a previous regime? He wants a clean break from our recent past, which means Twitchy will never be involved with Saints again.

See where we are after 10-12 games, things will start to even themselves out about by then.

So was I and we weren't even on the same pitch, fair enough Arsenal were class but we were on the back foot from the kick off, basically standing off them and letting their midfield and attack dictate everything for the entire first half, and if it wasn't for their Champions League action this week, meaning they took their foot off the gas for the second half, they could have easily hit double figures, the only thing we could be grateful for is other clubs would have started giving it the old ole' ole' bs we need to toughen up and stop being such a nice team to play, the main difference this season is the big clubs know all the tricks about getting penalties and free kicks and how to close a game off when they're ahead.

The nature of the four defeats is my issue - not the clubs played.
This "winning mentality" already seems to have evaporated in some players - notably Davis & Fonte, they look ready to poo their pants at the first sign of any danger!
Thanks for everything to date Nige, but as previously stated, I firmly believe that you'll be gone within a month. In an ideal world it would be great for him to cut his teeth in the PL, but his tactical naivety and NC's desire to stabilise in this division simply won't allow it.

I completely agree. The only person's opinion that actually matters is Cortese's, of course.

For the rest of us speculating about Nigel's future, it's more about trying to unpick the mind of a cipher (NC) than it is about measuring Nigel's worth.

I'm on record with the opinion that Nigel will be sent packing if we don't start winning at villa or very soon after that. I don't want Nigel to go, I just think that Swiss businessmen (I know many) prefer to project the image of a fortress to the world, but swiftly terminate those who fall short of goals.

We should have no doubt that there are goals agreed between NC and NA, and NA will be moved if we are short of the milestones agreed.

I believe Nigel can be our own ferguson if he can complete the step up. He has the makings and pedigree of a loyal, high achiever. But I think he will need to secure a milestone soon, and that is x points from the first 30, or something like that.

We have new signings who have hardly be here five mintues yet it easy to see what quality siginings they are. NA will have Southampton F.C. up the league soon and people who know nothing about football and Saints can have their moment dining on our current league position, but will soon be choking on it!

NA is the best young manager there is now, and the only parting of the ways later will possibly be when England call.

Think the main word that stands out more is ' Stability '. Go back a few years that word was not known in Southampton. And the reason why we are in the PL today is because of NA installing Stability into the team. Bringing in a new manager would only destroy all the work that has gone into the team over the past 2 years. When we were at the bottom end of league 1 before NA took over, there was no hope, no positives, the players looked almost beaten. And this was only the start of the season in league 1!. Yet NA installed so much positives picked the players up, now those same players are playing in the PL. How many managers can do that?, take League 1 players and give them so much confidence they turn into PL quality players. And as a Fan what a rollercoaster ride he has given so far, never been so proud of saints for years. And its true to say in years to come we will all say, i was there during the NA years.

liverpool, spurs, villa and west hoof are more likely to sack their managers imo. fat sams fat face has never fit in at hoof, liverpool have had easier games than us and only have 2 pts from them, and are not playing in a way the fans or players like, as have spurs who have 5pts but no support from the fans for AVB (they want twitchy back the fools!). lambert hasnt even had a honeymoon period at villa, and they have a history of changing managers.
when i look what adkins has done and achieved, and the way he runs the club, i dont think that at the moment we could get anyone better! Adkins will get the wins we want and need and we should be safe this season.
can other fans stop murdering our song its `oh when the saints` not spurs or reds or anything else they sing. get your own songs!

Give Nigel a break. The only real drubbing has been against Arsenal. The other matches were close and could have resulted in points. Yes, there are problems with the back line but Clyne and Yoshida look quality and will settle give time. I am confident that Nigel will get the defence sorted and the team will grind out a few points to get us off the bottom. Although top half of the table is a bit optimistic, I think Saints will survive. Lets all get behind the team and see 3 points on Saturday.

I am perplexed about the whole idea of losing Adkins!
Why would anyone think he is not the same Manager at this level. The gap is clearly in some of the players ability to step up.
For those calling for 4-4-2 and not 4-3-3 the players need to adapt and mix it up a bit. Unfortunately we still seem to have the mentality he's a forward, he's a midfielder, and he's a defender. As far as I can see they all need to be doing a bit of everything!
We must carry no one this season - as soon as Puncheon loses interest he needs to be taken off. It's no good hoofing it to Lambert unless someone can support him!
Our full backs need support and cover - partnerships and understanding don't come overnight - but it would be nice to see players reading the game better - a bit like Bridgey and Marsden!
Happy days will return tomorrow I feel it in my water!

Yeah £51 for me and my nipper, seems expensive compared to the £35.50 for both at the Emirates! Still better than £76 at the Etihad, its the atmosphere and the result that count though, the atmosphere with Saints away fans is guaranteed, a result away at Goodison may be a big ask. See you there!!

Mind you we were row F at the Etihad, Row 1 right next to the corner flag at the emirates and could only get the lower bullens for Goodison, I,ve heard the view is like looking through a letter box! Hopefully my ticket allocations will improve with the results!! COYS[/p][/quote]I'm in the lower bullens at Goodison too. It'll be a rubbish view but it's only about 30 quid which is a BARGAIN. See you there![/p][/quote]Yeah £51 for me and my nipper, seems expensive compared to the £35.50 for both at the Emirates! Still better than £76 at the Etihad, its the atmosphere and the result that count though, the atmosphere with Saints away fans is guaranteed, a result away at Goodison may be a big ask. See you there!! saintmicky

Thanks for everything to date Nige, but as previously stated, I firmly believe that you'll be gone within a month. In an ideal world it would be great for him to cut his teeth in the PL, but his tactical naivety and NC's desire to stabilise in this division simply won't allow it.

Not one true Saints fan wants Adkins to go. Even if we got relegated (which we will not - I assure you) I'd still want him to remain our manager.

And not one true Saints fan would ever want Harry Rednapp back as our manager -ever-.

It's really as simple as this.

Adkins is our King.

Hi al what a lovely day the sun is shinning and in 26 hours time we will be loosing our voices once again, can't wait.
Well the question is done Nigel stay do we kick him out when we don't win, thats the question?
Come on be fair, think about it. We were in League 1 for what 7 yrs, correct me if I'm wrong which I know you will. Nicola got ring of Pardew and we met this man from up north, an ex goalie and physio, what did he have to offer us. Well he offered us hope, stability, honesty and most of all the chance to go up. Did we go us yes we did and what a way we did as well, sometimes maybe not the easiest way but then we are Southampton FC, then came the Championship and yes we went up again and not the eay way either but we did and why. We went us becuase we had a great team of players fantastic backroom staff, a great no not great a fantastic manager and Nicola a force in himselve and the belief of the real fans as St Mary's.
Ive only been going for a few seasons but I would not have it any otherway. Nigel is a GENTLEMAN sorry about the capitals but thats they way it has to be written he and Nicola are awesome and have such a fantastic way with each other and I know if Marcus was here he would agree as well. What were we told when Marcus bought the club a 5 year plan well we went up prematurely to the plan and we will stay there too. Lile Ian of Redhill said no one is after Readings manger and if any of you have been listening to Skysports, we had the bastism of fire and alot of clubs in the premiership might be in the same position as us if they had the draw we had.
We are Saints, we never do things the easy way and for god sake stop saying Nigel must go, the only people that should go are the bl**dy glory hunters who have bought season tickets because we are in the Premier League. I was at the 2 pre-season games and had people behind me talking about Saints, talk about whooray henry's how I didn't turn round and tell them to go elsewhere but thats another story.
To those who don't like whats happening go and watch another team, leave St Mary's alone and let us get on with it. Yes we need to see Tadanori sooner rather than latter an also Gazzerniger also need sto get some more games in as Kelvin will have to move over sooner rather than later.
Well guys and girls I've had my say, I will be a Saints supporter till the day I die.

Me also thinks that the mileage on this one is not far and the M27 comes too mind but then I might be wrong. Think about it we have played 4 games, as I said before alot of professional people on the TV etc have said we are doing well and what happened last week !!!!! Oh yes Fox scored the first goal against Arsenal, if we were no good he would not have got the goal. Yes 2 own goals Jos's think his injury might to be to blame and Nathan's that was total bad luck.
Lets all just see where we are when we play Arsenal on 1/1/13 then we can re-assess should Nigel be with us or not. Remember, it takes along time for a new manager to fit in and also earn the respect of the players, we have respect running at St Mary's and like they say don't fix it unless its broke and Saint's are not broke, in more ways than one. That reminds me where have all the kitchen liquidisers gone in Pompy!!!! heard there was a run on them recently.

I cannot for one minute, see a well run club like Saints sacking one of the best young managers around at present on the back of a handful of early results against some of the best teams in the country. The Premier league is a massive step up from the Championship with a steep learning curve to deal with. I fully expect results to improve for you and if Saints finish above 6th bottom in the first season back in the big time then you have had a great season! Good luck to Saints and Adkins and can the Echo stop writing such drivel! Lets hope we all meet again next year.............in the Premiership that is!

If results don't pick up by the time we play Spurs at home in October than I think Nigel will be gone but I also think results will pick up a home win tomorrow followed by a decent display at Everton, don't think we will get anything there judging by Monday night and then a home win Vs Fulham and this discussion will seem irrelevant. The bloke deserves a chance and not just against the 3 best teams in this league

Not one true Saints fan wants Adkins to go. Even if we got relegated (which we will not - I assure you) I'd still want him to remain our manager.

And not one true Saints fan would ever want Harry Rednapp back as our manager -ever-.

It's really as simple as this.

Adkins is our King.

Long live the king.
as much as that sentiment is admirable... I could not see it happening if we do drop back a division.... Looking at the squads in the Prem and our recent spending, I think he would be expected to keep us up this season.... I think we will stay up and I am still predicting a finish of 14th.

Intellectually Challenged, resort to name calling, well if the cap fits as they say.
The "Headline is" Nigel and his job. Think about this carefully, we have played 4 games like everyone has said against the 3 top teams in this league. If we had played teams that are classed as being of lower position within the Premier League then yes we would have every right to be baying for Nigels Blood, but we didn't. We have to give everyone a chance, we have not spent stupidly yes maybe we should have concentrated on defence as well, but you can't have it all. We have 4 or is it 5 players that are playing for their country and thats within Great Britian, not bad going when you think how long it has taken us to get back into the Premiership.
Yes we all have a right to express our views and you have done this, the only problem is it doesn't sound like the views of a true Saint Supporter so yes you will be called offensive names, well not offensive as I see it but then we can all use vocabulary of a colourful nature. Think it best that it be left that way. Saints supporters due use sentiment in there display, thats what makes us one of the best travelling supporters in the country and why last week on TV and other line feed you could hear us singing.

Adkins has made poor decisions recently and has cost us points, there is no loyalty in football, if one day liverpool come calling im sure he'd be gone.

Felt abit sick watching Buttner go on a wonder run to score aswell knowing Fox is costing us points on a weekly basis with his shocking defending and constant long balls.

Rant over, 3 points tomorrow! COYR!!!!!

The Premier league is a massive step up from the Championship with a steep learning curve to deal with. I fully expect results to improve for you and if Saints finish above 6th bottom in the first season back in the big time then you have had a great season! Good luck to Saints and Adkins and can the Echo stop writing such drivel! Lets hope we all meet again next year.............in the Premiership that is!
Thanks Mark (and pjwilk). Yep, it's a steep learning curve but we're on the right track and have, amongst others, Nigel Adkins to thank for that.

Let's hope you can join us next season.

Not wishing to defend Fox too much but from what I could make out (I wasn't there, didn't watch the highlights and only saw it on a stuttering live link), none of Arsenal's goals were Fox's fault, were they?

The way I see it Football is like a game of Poker.
The lucky few get to the winners table (THE PREM), each with a different size starting pile of chips.
Trust me, it’s not about the chip count now, it’s about the chip count at the end of the tournament and that changes constantly.
Regardless of win, lose, draw scenarios for Saturday, the end game (SEASON END POSITION) is the main real point of reference.

So many chips/points still to play for. Stay composed, keep your belief, and keep your class .... And try and sneak a look at your opponents hand while they are not looking (talking from experience).
Saints a prem team next year and beyond, it’s where we belong.

Which team do you think is the more likely to succeed:

a) A team with the fans unified behind the players and management who turn up and cheer, sing and back the club with joy, passion and humour.

b) A team with fans who moan like old women on the internet and then turn up and complain about the shortcomings of the manager and players.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

Can't argue with that, Retford. Having her strutting up and down behind the right goal on Saturday could distract a few Villa players.

Which team do you think is the more likely to succeed:

a) A team with the fans unified behind the players and management who turn up and cheer, sing and back the club with joy, passion and humour.

b) A team with fans who moan like old women on the internet and then turn up and complain about the shortcomings of the manager and players.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
A team winning games is how you measure success...

We live in a democracy, you and some of the others would be more suited to living in china! They don't care how football is played either.

Seedhouse just isn't up to the arse standards demanded by the Premiership. He was good in the Championship and excellent in League One, but we need to bring in Kylie before it's too late. We can't be going to places like Chelsea thinking Seedhouse will be an adequate arse for the occasion - they'll murder us.

Hope (though doubt) NC reads this thread.
So Fox's inability to deal with wingers i.e. constantly letting them run down the wing effortlessly dragging CB's out of position, is not his fault. What games do you watch?

Huff as loadly as you like, the 2 previous promotions wont keep us in the premier league and its as simple as that.

Well I certainly vote or A, but what do I know I only ever played Pub team / sunday league football. I never pitted my lack of footballing skills in the top leagues like "Southampton Legend" and "Walter K" obviously have, I bow to their excelllence.... Even so they have no idea how to support a team.

b) A team with fans who moan like old women on the internet and then turn up and complain about the shortcomings of the manager and players.

A team winning games is how you measure success...

Our team badly requires our support.
Our manager requires our support.

Why are we already sugggesting that he will get the sack after only 4 games?
It,s too early to judge whether he can or can't do it at this level.

We have to accept that he is a novice in this league, our team are novices but are all having to learn fast.
Agreed, he has made some mistakes,and they have cost us points.
Ferguson did that in his first season at Man U.
There was a call for his head.
What a mistake that would have been!
I love to watch my team,I want them to be sucessfull, as any other football fan would.
We have to be patient.
Not easy after our last few seasons of great achievement, I know.
Please get off his back and get behind him on Saturday,he will get it right so cut him some slack.

Seedhouse, you are an @rse!

The problem is Walter, these regulars are just Saints fans and not football fans also. I doubt any of them have played football before.
I would consider myself a regular Saints fan.
I live in Oz and follow my local team Perth Glory as well.
I played football to quite a reasonable level as well.
So you don’t represent me fella.

I’ll grant you that Seed can be an @rse, but he’s our @rse and we love him for that.
Of all the @rses in the world, if there's one @rse who, above all other @rses (especially wealthy @rses) I'm happy to call 'our @rse', it's Seedhouse the unrepentent @rse.
I'd rather we could have Kylie's tbh, but I suppose Seedhouse will do.
Can't argue with that, Retford. Having her strutting up and down behind the right goal on Saturday could distract a few Villa players.

Call me fickle, but I say, 'sack Seedhouse - bring in Minogue!'
Seedhouse just isn't up to the arse standards demanded by the Premiership. He was good in the Championship and excellent in League One, but we need to bring in Kylie before it's too late. We can't be going to places like Chelsea thinking Seedhouse will be an adequate arse for the occasion - they'll murder us.
I think we need to compare ourselves with the @rses that other prem teams have.

Since Manure sacked Posh Spice, they've been stuck with Coleen. Can't see an @rse like that winning the prem.

Chelsea had Cheryl Cole, and still have Nigella Lawson (apparently). My money's on a top 3 finish.

Arse-en-al have, well, Arse-ne Weng-arse - nuff sed!

Then there's Wet Spam - They have Sam!

We'll struggle a bit with Seedy but Kylie should see some 'point-raising' performances.

Not wishing to defend Fox too much but from what I could make out (I wasn't there, didn't watch the highlights and only saw it on a stuttering live link), none of Arsenal's goals were Fox's fault, were they?

As for NA .......... (huffs loudly to self) ....... 2 promotions, building a squad, developing the youth players ......

...... haven't been this happy with a manager since the early '80s.

Hope (though doubt) NC reads this thread.
So Fox's inability to deal with wingers i.e. constantly letting them run down the wing effortlessly dragging CB's out of position, is not his fault. What games do you watch?

Huff as loadly as you like, the 2 previous promotions wont keep us in the premier league and its as simple as that.
No, I didn't say that, please re-read what I said. I asked which goal he was responsible for at Arsenal. It was a simple question in response to your phrase, '... knowing Fox is costing us points ON A WEEKLY BASIS ....' I have the impression that he didn't cost us at all last weekend, whilst others did. Thus, if I'm right, 'WEEKLY BASIS' must be wrong.

Why is it that whenever anybody expresses an alternative view from the majority on here they are either considered to be wrong or from down the road?
My views aren't right or wrong - they are my views!
Grow up.
It's the job of those from down the road to try and stir things up. If you really are a Saints fan then you are truely an embarrassment to the rest of us.
WOW

Seedhouse, you are an @rse!

The problem is Walter, these regulars are just Saints fans and not football fans also. I doubt any of them have played football before.
Which team do you think is the more likely to succeed:

a) A team with the fans unified behind the players and management who turn up and cheer, sing and back the club with joy, passion and humour.

b) A team with fans who moan like old women on the internet and then turn up and complain about the shortcomings of the manager and players.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
Well I certainly vote or A, but what do I know I only ever played Pub team / sunday league football. I never pitted my lack of footballing skills in the top leagues like "Southampton Legend" and "Walter K" obviously have, I bow to their excelllence.... Even so they have no idea how to support a team.
They probably support a pub team on the quiet :)

Rant over, 3 points tomorrow! COYR!!!!!
Not wishing to defend Fox too much but from what I could make out (I wasn't there, didn't watch the highlights and only saw it on a stuttering live link), none of Arsenal's goals were Fox's fault, were they?

As for NA .......... (huffs loudly to self) ....... 2 promotions, building a squad, developing the youth players ......

...... haven't been this happy with a manager since the early '80s.

Hope (though doubt) NC reads this thread.
So Fox's inability to deal with wingers i.e. constantly letting them run down the wing effortlessly dragging CB's out of position, is not his fault. What games do you watch?

Huff as loadly as you like, the 2 previous promotions wont keep us in the premier league and its as simple as that.
No, I didn't say that, please re-read what I said. I asked which goal he was responsible for at Arsenal. It was a simple question in response to your phrase, '... knowing Fox is costing us points ON A WEEKLY BASIS ....' I have the impression that he didn't cost us at all last weekend, whilst others did. Thus, if I'm right, 'WEEKLY BASIS' must be wrong.
So Gervinho didnt run clean through from the left wing and score?

Not from what I saw, I thought Yoshida rushed out when he should have stayed put. As I say, I was watching a rubbish online stream. Maybe someone else would be able to verify what happened.

Huff as loadly as you like, the 2 previous promotions wont keep us in the premier league and its as simple as that.
Why do you think the decision not to sign Buttner when wages and transfer fee had been agreed was Nigel's?

Pulling out due to the sudden demands of a 'third party' was down to the chairman not the manager.

Nigel is stuck with the choice of Fox and Shaw and has obviously decided thus far that Shaw isn't ready yet.

Hmm, whatever your view, this is not an obvious non-story.

There are three saints-related echo sites posted this morning. This one, one about Adkins views on the coming match, and one about who villa might start with up front.

Oh, and one about callum mcnish falling further into obscurity.

Which one has all the comments, do you think?

News is information or analysis that is in the pubic interest, AND of interest to the public.
It is a non story which as mentioned is a paper gossip and others with very little to work with trying to run with it. Possibly even trying to disrupt a well run club, who knows.

It is also a non story as NA himself on TV has cleared this rumour up!

But if you wish to believe it, it is up to you. But NA is the best up and coming manager, and after what the man achived this can not be questioned, and therefore it would also be foolish to sack someone with his record, even shortsighted!!

Watch Southampton move up this league!

There are three saints-related echo sites posted this morning. This one, one about Adkins views on the coming match, and one about who villa might start with up front. Oh, and one about callum mcnish falling further into obscurity. Which one has all the comments, do you think? News is information or analysis that is in the pubic interest, AND of interest to the public.[/p][/quote]It is a non story which as mentioned is a paper gossip and others with very little to work with trying to run with it. Possibly even trying to disrupt a well run club, who knows. It is also a non story as NA himself on TV has cleared this rumour up! But if you wish to believe it, it is up to you. But NA is the best up and coming manager, and after what the man achived this can not be questioned, and therefore it would also be foolish to sack someone with his record, even shortsighted!! Watch Southampton move up this league! Saint.

To whoever posted a team winning games is how you measure success well you've obviously only just started supporting SFC we have spent the last 3 years picking up wins and the last 2 since NA has been in charge winning more than ever. Now we have come up against the 3 BEST teams in England and at times struggled but at times bar Arsenal have shown we can match them. Like many have said our season truly starts tomorrow COYR

I'm not in for quite as much as you but enough to hurt.

I wish Betfair had an "Adkins to go market": I'd be laying him like mad. A guy like NC with a five year plan will have the sense to watch three games against three of the best teams in the world with the right perspective.

Rant over, 3 points tomorrow! COYR!!!!!
Not wishing to defend Fox too much but from what I could make out (I wasn't there, didn't watch the highlights and only saw it on a stuttering live link), none of Arsenal's goals were Fox's fault, were they?

As for NA .......... (huffs loudly to self) ....... 2 promotions, building a squad, developing the youth players ......

...... haven't been this happy with a manager since the early '80s.

Hope (though doubt) NC reads this thread.
So Fox's inability to deal with wingers i.e. constantly letting them run down the wing effortlessly dragging CB's out of position, is not his fault. What games do you watch?

Huff as loadly as you like, the 2 previous promotions wont keep us in the premier league and its as simple as that.
No, I didn't say that, please re-read what I said. I asked which goal he was responsible for at Arsenal. It was a simple question in response to your phrase, '... knowing Fox is costing us points ON A WEEKLY BASIS ....' I have the impression that he didn't cost us at all last weekend, whilst others did. Thus, if I'm right, 'WEEKLY BASIS' must be wrong.
So Gervinho didnt run clean through from the left wing and score?
Gervinho didn't run clean through from the left wing. I'm prepared to bet any amount of money you care to mention.

If you can't tell left from right, do we really want you managing our team? I won't be voting for you.

If adders is sacked I hope there are questions asked of 'the don.
Adkins hasn't been given a fair crack IMO and has been restricted in the transfer market both in latest and last January. Puncheon was only made available at cortese's say so.
We needed defenders and every one new it, plus an experienced keeper not an up and coming one. We have been on the ascendancy for the past 2 seasons and IMO that has papered over a lot of cracks which will become present over the next few months.

Totally agree.
I think the problem with Nigel Adkins has to be that somehow he cannot for whatever reason get the defence sorted. Even through most of last season and even when we were in League one we were saying this same thing. So perhaps the problem lies with the way he plays the team. He wants this fast flowing attacking football this is part of his plan for our club and this has paid fantastic dividends to the club so far. We at times played some brilliant football last year, think of the way we swept Leeds away on the first game and did this in many other games. But to achieve that at this level is an incredibly difficult thing to do.We have already seen the makings of a great side in the games so far. If we manage to bring to fruition a side that can dominate games with fast flowing attacking football at this level (which is Nigel Adkins way of playing and what we surely all want to see) then we would be up there as one of the best teams in the premier When we move forward we are as good as anyone in this league. I can really see what he is trying to achieve. He needs time to build this team but unfortunately we have very little time.
If we truly want to be a great side in the premier league then we have to ride this storm and hopefully survive this season with Nigel Adkins in charge and with the addition of a defensive coach. Vital from now on is having the ability to close games out. We will nearly always score with this team so being able to a close game out will bring us the wins that we so badly need.
Another thing is we need to believe in the vision that the club has and Nigel Adkins has been a big part of that. It will be easy to think that an change of manager will change everything, I somehow doubt that.
Most of the really successful clubs at this level have long serving managers.
A big part of our problems over recent years is having one or two different managers per season. Lets not go back to those days.
There is a big difference to what we see now as to what was happening four or five seasons ago. The team is playing with great spirit even though at the moment we are losing I am sure better times are just around the corner. Ramirez is apparently already looking a class act and our young players are also looking good. there are many players in the wings who haven't had their chance yet who are chomping at the bit to get out there and have a decent run in the team.
Hopefully we have enough time and patience to put all this together.

"OH WHEN THE SAINTS GO MARCHING IN"

I am interested to know what the concensus of opinion is on our anthem being played loudly as our team comes onto the pitch both before the start and at the second half.
It is noticeable that most other clubs do this, why not ours.
This will help the crowd really get going, and this will increase the atmosphere.
Those that know the words can train the ones that don't, unfortunately mostly found near me in the Chapple.
Come on you Saints .

Not sure you should posture yourself as an intellect when you are as petulant as a child. Let’s get rid of a manager that has achieved so much in 2 years after a month in one of the toughest leagues in the world. His naivety got us two promotions, you think he can unlock this league in a month? Jesus 4 games in, you sound like a spoilt child. How long will you give his replacement then? I'm struggling to see your objectivity. I bet my spine that Man U, Man C and Arsenal will be in the top 4 at the end of the season. (Actually make that a fiver).

Interesting eh?! What a statement that would be!!

On the other hand, I firmly believe we currently have the best up and coming English manager in Adkins and hope he's able to at least see out his contract.

3-1 Saints today! COYR!

Nowhere near as exciting as Division One at the moment, would rather be down there than being miserable in the Premier, what do you think?

Couldn't agree more. Premiership is boring. Daring to take it one step further, some of the local level football around this area is far more interesting.

Not one true Saints fan wants Adkins to go. Even if we got relegated (which we will not - I assure you) I'd still want him to remain our manager.

And not one true Saints fan would ever want Harry Rednapp back as our manager -ever-.

It's really as simple as this.

Adkins is our King.

Long live the king.
as much as that sentiment is admirable... I could not see it happening if we do drop back a division.... Looking at the squads in the Prem and our recent spending, I think he would be expected to keep us up this season.... I think we will stay up and I am still predicting a finish of 14th.
Cheers.

I actually totally agree with you. I actually was thinking we'd finish around 14th/15th. I'm a bit more optimistic now though.

The only point I was trying to make was that I think showing Faith in Adkins will pay major dividends in the future. I certainly don't believe we'll go down this season though.

I just think progress will be a slower process in the premier league, and we just have to be patient. As we are being I guess.

Adkins is doing such a good job, and still has so much potential. Aston Villa match was the turning point, it's all down hill from here.

I wouldn't swap, the Portu geezer should still be wearing short trousers, want our man Adkins to continue on this road to the promised land, not with some petulant outsider, we've enough of those getting on the bus already.

I was at the Arsenal game and didn't see it as a humiliation. I will also go to Everton and all the others.
At this moment in the season Arsenal were way better than us. We have to improve and we will. NA knows what he is doing. I still believe we will get to the top half of the table.
Nothing humiliating being in the Premiership after only 2 years ago being in League 1
So was I and we weren't even on the same pitch, fair enough Arsenal were class but we were on the back foot from the kick off, basically standing off them and letting their midfield and attack dictate everything for the entire first half, and if it wasn't for their Champions League action this week, meaning they took their foot off the gas for the second half, they could have easily hit double figures, the only thing we could be grateful for is other clubs would have started giving it the old ole' ole' bs we need to toughen up and stop being such a nice team to play, the main difference this season is the big clubs know all the tricks about getting penalties and free kicks and how to close a game off when they're ahead.
So who wants to sit next to Half-Empty next time, I'm with Half-Full!

Adkins has made poor decisions recently and has cost us points, there is no loyalty in football, if one day liverpool come calling im sure he'd be gone.

Felt abit sick watching Buttner go on a wonder run to score aswell knowing Fox is costing us points on a weekly basis with his shocking defending and constant long balls.

Rant over, 3 points tomorrow! COYR!!!!!
**Two star Flakey Fan- bet you swim with the tide don't you-even if it is the wash from the Gosport Ferry.
Fox scored on the same day as Buttner-but then you're implying that we should always outbid ManU aren't you?
