    He's picked some sh1t clubs to work at since Saints, I'd rather take a step down and work for a club with ambitions to move forward, hopefully he does well all the same.

    Sheff Utd clearly have ambition tbf and he just wasn't given the time at Reading.

    I agree, at the time the Sheff Utd job seemed like a great match for them both. Shame it didn't work out

    I know some people have re-written history with him, but I still have total respect for what he did with us and will always be greatful

    This comment is spot on in my opinion. I am surprised by his choice of club, but of course we all wish him well.

    Who's rewritten history? I had assumed your sentiments were the consensus.

    Fans up here are pretty happy but working for the Allam's makes it almost inevitable it will all end in tears.

    After 2 sackings that's not a bad job. He can improve them too.

    So much luck involved. Have no doubt he'd have kept us up and improved us if given more time here. Couple of wrong moves later and his career has really gone downhill.

    Would have loved him back here involved in youth coaching at some stage.

    Apparently he's already caused controversy by repeatingly refering to them as "Hull City" (which is apparently not okay with the owner?).

    well, the next great english manager, the new fergie, the person good enough to come in here and push us back into Europa League contention must surely be good enough to get Hull a top 10/playoff push at least this season?

    Are you implying that your opinions on here are actually reliable?

    Landed himself a plum job at saints with an embarrassing amount of riches at his disposal for both league one and the championship.
    Yet managed to fall short on both occasions....coming second.
    Nauseating,cliche riddled press conferences.
    Been Found out since leaving....heís poor.....and will be again at Hull.
    He achieved the bare minimum he should have at Southampton.
    The way people hold him in some messiah like status is quite embarrassing.
    I wish him well however.

    Won League 1 during his tenure.
    Would have won the Champ were it not for some inexplicable refereeing at Boro.

    We never won anything under Adkins.....runners up to Brighton in league 1 and runners up to Reading in The championship.

    The biggest loss was losing at home 3-2 to Reading.
    Donít blame the ref.......you plank.

    Evidently you have little or no respect for him, but Nigel Adkins fulfilled what he was contacted to do - achieve two promotions. I, like many others Saints fans, will hold him in very high regard and be grateful for his efforts.

    You obviously didn't go away to Orient and Plymouth or experience the pitch invasions after both promotions were confirmed! I can't see how anyone who did can have anything but positive things to say about Nigel , Some of my best days supporting Saints !

    Mr Adkins is actually the only recent manager that I felt really sorry for when he got kicked out.
    Mr Pardew a bit less so but as for M.P. and R.K. well they were somewhat "don't let the door hit
    you on your way out".

    This. Happy days. Great memories. Was a better experience supporting Saints then compared to now. Nothing will compare to the Dell days for atmosphere and drama of course, but Nigel Adkins gave us fans great entertainment and excitement in his time here. But most of all, I liked his positive post match interviews. The last Saints manager that I could actually understand what he was saying. Fact

    He also won our hearts and will always be a saints legend

    Anyone feeling inclined to slag off Adkins in his time with us really should be spending their Saturday afternoons down Nottarf Krap! The League One and Championship seasons with him at the helm were without a doubt a right wheeze. So he might have had an embarrassment of riches, but you still have to make the components at your disposal work. As a comparison Koeman piddled oodles of money up the wall this past summer on players, yet whilst they looked good on paper they proved to be about as useful as a one legged man in a @R$e kicking contest in his hands.
