    would our prima donnas listen to him though?

    Don't see any liklihood that Hughes will be sacked. There would be a huge contract payment to make and the owners are already in debt. We're lumbered with him, as we are with Forster. We used to be told top managers were lining up to come to us, no sign or rumour of anyone now

    Not really sure Johnson has done enough so far to warrant a Premier League job, Bristol City are very inconsistent. Hence their mid-table position.

    Johnson is not very popular with fans either.

    I really don't know enough about the other managers to say much, but those favourites are pretty dire. I'd prefer Rodgers over most of them.

    Surely we aren't a bad club for an aspiring club to come to though? We spend enough money, we have players with more potential than they've shown. We have a decent infrastructure and we did well recently enough that our reputation hasn't entirely gone to ****. We just need someone to come in and demand more of the players and stop persisting with those that underperform, until they get the message.

    You all wanted Puel out. He went and we got worse. You all wanted Pellegrino out, he went and nothing changed. Getting rid of Hughes is not going to fix things.

    The huge contract payment is still small beer when compared to the loss of revenue that will result from relegation. Parachutes only get you to the ground.

    Wise words, Cloggy. To be fair, we also want Reed and Kreuger out but that's harder to make happen.

    Leicester was pretty toss as was Everton. So I stand by the comment that Swansea essentially kept us up by being more crap than we were just at the right time. We wonít keep getting that fortunate.

    And it was no more nightmarish than anyone else.

    Also, are we to pretend he has had a Ďnightmareí start this season?

    Heís now a shi* manager doing a shi* job. And the names being bandied about would be shi* appointments too. If anyone (and Iíve seen Bruce being mentioned today to go along with all the other dinosaurs which is depressing) from our management board are seriously considering any of them then it shows how out of touch they are and how much we are no longer a progressive thinking club.

    I don't really understand why we would improve if Reed and Kruger were to leave

    I don't really see what is wrong with the squad and why they fail to score so often

    A change is clearly needed. The team needs a kick up the nuts and it just isn't happening under Hughes. No goals from open play in 6 games is a sick joke. And if Hughes goes that means Reed and Wilson have got the last 3 appointments wrong and they surely have to walk as well.

    A meeting happened, but not this week. Been a few changes this week. Looks like the club really want to win this one.

    You'd hope that would be the case every week.

    Cryptic. Do you mean the club met a prospective new manager before the City game? Or did the players have a clear the air meeting with Hughes? Or was there a Gao meeting with Reed? I do hope things are in train. And that the changes made are not just cosmetic. Could we have a new captain? I do hope so and that itís Hoj

    The only changes I’ve noticed at training this week is the players are having a few 11 a side matches against some red cones.
    Currently the cones are 3-1 up.

    I'm guessing the 1 we've scored against the cones went in off Jimmy Bollard?! Apologies.

    Hardly a surprise if true although it should be Reed or Ralph who follow him out the door.

    Joking aside-ish, changes are afoot, I believe the players are training at the stadium (not something they usually do) a few times this week, probably trying to get them acquainted with where the goalposts are.

    I suppose the atmosphere would still feel the same?

    Can't imagine we'd sack Hughes 2 days before a crucial home game. We should have done that on Sunday evening (we should never have offered him a new deal in the summer IMO).

    I assume we will have to find a Les replacement now before we can find a Hughes replacement....

    Please donít let the useless cretin Hughes try and weasel out of the blame for his appalling management.
    Sack him quickly.

    The proverbial monkey and the typewriter would have had a better strike rate in the transfer market than Les since the 2015 summer window. Staggeringly incompetent.

    It sure does!
    Faulty form, fan friction, defensive dilemmas, suspect recruitment, curious selections ... and that was his time at Stoke. For Stoke, read Saints.
    He has until the end of next month to deliver, IMHO. A new DoF may not even give him that.

    I’m sure every club-manager breakdown has the same characteristics, so it’s not necessarily unique to Hughes.

    Some of the elements - undoubtedly. All of them - unlikely.

    Ralph on Hughes future:

    @AdamBlackmore: Just spoke with #saintsfc chairman Ralph Krueger, and it included a one word answer:
    - Me: One newspaper ran a story last Saturday saying Hughes would be fired if you lose to Watford tomorrow - is that true?
    - Ralph: No

    We should probably sack Hughes for the sake of Jeff's health, I do fear for him at times. Unhinged doesn't cover it.

    I’m hoping they have the new manager lined up and he didn’t want to be told who to buy by Charlton’s worst ever manager, hence the change in structure.

    Reading Ralphs interview in the echo I think he is safe for now though its Ralph speak so it could mean anything...

    This sounds like a long process, does that mean Mark Hughes’ job will be safe for a long period because there is nobody in the role Les occupied to take that decision if it were ever required?

    These are the changes we have made and we are very comfortable with the personnel and the staff we have in place and Mark is in the lead in the most visible of all football roles.
    We are expecting a change in performance and a change in results with some minor shifts we have done within the club.
    We are going optimistically into the game against Watford and I think that the energy we needed to make these changes was massive and we have expended that. It’s now about let’s appraise our situation and what do we have and then we make further decisions.
    I have gone through all the leaders of football in the different roles and we have a lot of good people in that environment and we will let them go to work.

    Cut Always some slack. Its been a difficult week for him. He’s obviously in grief and needs to work things out at his own pace.
