    On paper certainly not in the bottom 3 but it's a fragile team and luck has not been on their side.

    He wasn't woeful though was he? Never a PL keeper but most of the time he was brilliant relative to where we were.

    I thought his being constantly rooted to his six yard box and general unpredictability - great shot stopping, but countless howlers - was pretty woeful. Others thought he was great.

    I just had a fiver at 8/1. not a bad price seeing as he was evens about an hour ago.

    We've been lead down the garden path by Wilson before (Walcott/Promes etc).

    Sources in Germany confirm Ralph Hasehuttl will be the new Saints FC manager. First game Cardiff City away.

    Have some sympathy for him but even though the play was more attacking and we got some goals, the defence never improved, the fitness seemed questionable and most of all he wasn’t able to fix our brittle confidence.

    Hopefully the new man can come in and change things for the better. For a player to come out and say they get terrified when they are winning and know it’ll be a draw soon (paraphrasing) is shocking.

    Ralph hassenhutti would be my preferred choice his style & development of players seems a good match to saints & a very good reputation in Germany

    Out in the next few windows: Forster, Cedric, Stephens, Bednarek, Hoedt, Targett, McQueen, Clasie, JWP, Davis, Boufal, Austin, Long, Carillo.

    Give Vestergaard, Gabbiadini and Elyounoussi the rest of the season to prove their worth.

    Bring in a leader at the back.

    Thanks Sparky for your efforts in keeping us up, regardless of whether Swansea imploded. Especially liked how he dealt with the shenanigans at Swansea before the game.
    Really wanted it to work out for him here but unfortunately he had to go, no home wins at this stage is unacceptable and he was unable to sort out the defence. Shame really as I do feel performances were starting to improve the last few weeks, but too little too late.

    That said the players have to take their share of the blame, and whoever the new guy is has a very tough job on his hands.

    Good luck Kelvin for Wednesday.

    Each to their own. I don't find throwing away winning positions with tyro league defending overly entertaining if I'm honest.

    I'd come away from SMS a lot happier seeing a few solid 1-0 wins.

    Absolutely 100% this. Well said, Chez.

    I didn't expect this if I'm honest, but fair enough. We didn't let this one drag out, we wanted to change it up quickly. Makes you wonder how much influence Les had last year in keeping MPoE for as long as we did (criminal).

    I think he's a decent bloke, Hughes, and he did galvanise us a bit last year and did his job in that sense - but the record was just appalling and has been for a long time. I can't see him getting back into work anytime soon after his last couple of roles.

    I love that our current state means that getting all the luck in the world still only means sneaking a draw

    Would like to see some value to the club with their approach to knowing their next manager shortlist.

    Would be a smart move to interview the likes of Danny Cowley, Adi Hutter, Raphael Wicky.

    If we were going to infract people for being unfunny, we'd be here all night.

    Lets not lose the fact that Hughes was Les's appointment.

    I'm not sure he ever could've got on with a new DoF with results being as they were.

  40. Default

    So, safely sacked while Harry Redknapp is on the other side of the world with no contact with the outside world?

    Hughes did a fantastic job of changing our mentality last season, and I've got no doubt we'd have gone down if he hadn't come in.

    I do think we've played a lot better than our results indicate this season, and there's been a hefty dose of bad luck in them, not least in the quality of refereeing we've had, but ultimately on paper our results have been terrible.

    Never any guarantees with a new manager of course, but our (expected) hiring of Hasenhüttl sounds interesting, especially if we can dig out a gem or two in January.

    Agree with all of this.

    Ultimately results & the nature of defeats (chucking away so many leads) gave the club no option really. But with a bit of luck we’d have 4 or 5 more points. The fact we’ve suddenly started finding the net gives the new bloke some hope.

    Not quite..

    Asked if him being given control only up to Wednesday’s Tottenham trip suggests a permanent appointment will happen before the weekend, Davis replied: “To me it does indicate that.

    “But whether that happens or not will be up to the guys upstairs. I’m taking the team up until Wednesday and we’ll see after that.”

    We have won once against them in 12 games home and away since our return to the top flight. There has been a few years when I thought we had a good to chance to win away at Spurs. The FA cup game in 1990 was one, the game that helped get Hoddle the sack another and anything seemed possible in 2003 and 2014. But if you are honest, getting some luck and sneaking a draw is not exactly an unusual outlook for Saints fans.

    Crook just said on Talksport that we want Mitchell back as DoF. Also said it’s established fact that Hughes did not want Vestergaard, told Reed he wasn’t good enough for Prem, but Reed insisted.
