    Quite right. What's the latest stage of the season a Prem Club has replaced a Manager? If Reed and co. act in the next 24 hours, it's not too late to steady the ship - if Pellegrino is left to muddle through the next 3 or 4 Prem games it probably will be (too late).

    Said all along that I would give Luis Enrique an offer.
    Heís desperate to manage in the Premier.
    We would be a great opportunity for him to test himself.
    Before obviously going to one of the big boys.

    That would be the Adkins that won 0-2 at Forest and move them out of the relegation places on Saturday?
    I hate Hughes and feel unclean supporting him but compared to this clown!
    Neither of the last 2 managers should have been appointed in the first place.
    That will upset that snivelling coward apologist Forester who just blames fans that wanted better than dross being served up.
    We turned down someone who had won trophies in 4 countries and managed Real Madrid.
    Pellegrino will be kept on and as I said last night had he been sacked after Leicester game we would have had better options.

    You are ignoring where they were when he took them over and what this clown has done this year.....why the fuss nope no idea all is rosy.
    I wouldn't want Adkins back but you cannot rewrite what he achieved here.

    Where has Batman done that?

    Adkins has no track record in the Premier League and has struggled in L1 since leaving us.

    Hughes has as good a pedigree as we could reasonably expect - he is, on every single conceivable measure, better than Adkins.

    Read the last paragraph...I am not advocating Adkins just saying he is doing ok at Hull considering train wreck there.
    Hughes record of 3 x 9th place finishes proves he isnt that bad but I hate the bloke .

    Usually Hughes is not my choice of manager but in our situation we need someone with experience and stature who knows the Prem inside out, he would be a good fit.

    Think we have left it too late though, I expect he would look at our fixture list and run a mile. Les' dithering has got us relegated.

    At this point we can't do any worse who ever we get in. My gut feeling is we are gone now anyway so a change can't make things any worse.

    The thing is its fine putting names out on a forum but I don't think many managers would see us as a very attractive option right now.

    I think the general point is that we would take pretty much anyone over Pellegrino. We are 100% down under him. Reed will only take a cheap option so at the moment I would take Tim Sherwood. Nowhere near my 1st choice but so much better tactically. Ignore his tenure at Villa. Mourinho would have taken that side down. First choice would be Guus Hiddink...no chance!!

    The board should pay the price if they persist with this donkey. They will have to explain why they sat on their hands from November. Does anyone seriously think the fans will accept Pellegrino for next season when we are in the championship .
    Even if we were to stay up would anyone want another season with him.
    They will sack him but too late to save our premiership status. The board are letting the fans down and if they do I won't renew my season ticket I won't need to.

    I think he Hughes could do a job for us but we know what Les is like.

    He tries to make out, our club is something special and we do things our way. The board reeks of arrogance because they genuinely believe they run our club better than anyone else runs theirs. Due to this I canít see him going for someone on the Ďmanager-merry-go-roundí because it would make us look like just any old club, you know what I mean.

    It's just inexplicable the Board can ignore the groundswell of discontent with Pellegrino. On any measure Pellegrino comes up short, and I can't think of any other Prem or Championship Club who would have allowed such an abject situation to drag on without action. It's fecking infuriating!!

    Why on earth hasn't he been relieved of his duties yet?

    Next stage will be all the empty seats at games.

    I think thats a bloody good idea.

    Lets all bombard their inbox with CVs making speculative applications for the managers job.

    Or would they do something churlish like use the info to ban people from SMS ?

    I'm just wondering how Mope compares to Paul Jewell, Billy Davies etc His record is truly awful and yet he is still in the job. What is the record for least wins and yet the club have kept their manager? We must be close with 1 in 14.

    Yeah but at least we got Chinese dragons dancing around before the match and little red envelopes handed out to the kids nothing screams English football like celebrating Chinese new year.
    It's paying attention to those little details in the pre match warm up that have made the club what it is today....

    I am at the point where I don't care about a replacement. I'd be perfectly happy to just get rid of him and let the players crack on by themselves. Damage limitation, I'm now convinced the not having a manager is better than letting him continue to make a complete balls up of everything.

    Wake up every morning and log on here hoping that I see a thread entitled “Pellegrino sacked!”.

    It was beggars belief that he survived the Leicester debacle. How he’s still here, months later is a mystery to me. What are they waiting for?

    After yesterdays total lack of effort in the second half I'm not sure trust them either. Might as well just play the under 18s and Lemina a player who put in loads of effort despite apparently having a sickness bug...the rest of them don't look like the give a crap.

    At this point it is a bit of a downer to wake up and discover that he’s still here. Pellegrino is not the only employee of the club who’s afraid to make bold decisions, it seems.

    Nah. I gave up on expecting the club to act ages ago. For better or worse he isn't going anywhere for the foreseeable future.

    We sit right behind the dug-outs and a very common remark is that the players seem to take zero notice of anything MP says during the game !

    I hope you are right, maybe they were agreeing next steps and certainly Ralph look less than happy with whatever next steps he has been charged with taking. Les is Kat's man so probably water tight and seen by Gao as the go-between but Les's absence from that meeting suggests he and some other board members may be about to be axed along with the Clown. If surgery has been pre-ordained it is unlikely to be minor under a local anaesthetic.

    The Chinese usually play the long game and maybe Gao has a ten year plan in which the short term ails amount to very little, who knows?

    Maybe football insiders know something we don't like the formation of a breakaway European or even Global super league in the next few years with the wholesale re-organisation of national leagues as a consequence? The status quo may have no bearing on where we might be in ten years time. Such a wild scenario could at least go some way towards the apparent abject lack of concern of the owners in our current plight.....

    Makes you wonder how much we have to lose by for them to jettison the clown. 10? If so, get Forster back in for the next one. Tough love.

    Nobody has refused to go on as a sub when called for! I too sit in that part of the ground and noticed how players subbed off did not acknowledge The Clown with a handshake or hug. It does look a tad automatic like they're going through the motions.

    Can't believe that imbecile is still manager today. I thought the only positive thing about that pathetic capitulation being broadcast around the world yesterday was that the owner might actually be bothered to watch a game and realise just how awful things are. Well, it seems he did get to see the game but it looks like they all sat around congratulating themselves on watching all that fantastic Southampton talent on the field. Pity it was all playing for Liverpool, but I'm sure they all toasted the magnificent and unique business model that sold 150 million quid of talent to Liverpool over the past few seasons. Don't suppose anyone mentioned the league position. They probably all got excited about seeing the first half possession stats and how well the 'Southampton Way' was working.

    On another note, I would take Hughes or almost anyone over Pellegrino. Anyone who has watched more than a couple of games in their lives would have more of a clue than this guy. But, it might be more tricky to get someone in because of the way the club management have this air of superiority about how things are done at Saints. Although Pellegrino is clearly useless, he was also put in a very bad situation by Reed & co. in that he did not bring in his own support team with him and had to work with what was already in place. Almost anyone with any credibility would have insisted on bringing their own assistants with them - people they can trust and discuss things with. Pellegrino, an amateur himself, only has other amateurs to help him out. Someone like Hughes would insist on his own team. Would Reed allow that?
