Saints Linked With Ex Monaco Manager.

What kind of club sacks a manager with that record?
OK, Les and Ralph probably would....

But that's the reason why this story is just rumor mongering: He will go to a good, ambitious club willing to spend money. That's not us any more.

Saints right now are toxic to quality managers and players--they won't risk coming to a club that has been in a downward spiral for the last two years. It will hurt their careers.

Saints At Bournemouth The Verdict
by simmo400 at 21:32:14

It was the same old. Missed chances not even making their keeper make a save. As last season proved draws aren’t good enough. Goals = wins and we’re 25% through the season with one win. We will be relegated 18 points if this continues. Yes we blunted them but without a goal we will not win. Yes we need to beat Newcastle and another 8 wins after. That means scoring more than the opponents some thing it seems we can’t do.

I said a season or so ago we would be celebrating draws soon, yes there were some positives but in the cold light of day we didn't score and didn't win ,it seems we are playing out of our skin as a team really trying hard and still the best we can hope for is a draw, the glaring lack of quality in most areas of the field will catch up with us especially as we keep hold of managers until its way to long, the toon game is massive now but I fear we are two poor teams that cant buy a win so another draw,
there are gaps beginning to show in the league table now with little leagues taking shape and guess which one were in , have a word with ralphy or les nick and ask was is the ambition of the club now because we fans have long forgotten coyr

I am seeing the signs of improvement. Not least starting with two up front and trying to win games rather than the awful football of the last two years when we could go all game with only one shot at goal.

What an awful game, an absolute snoozefest. We are sleep walking our way to the championship and if it gets rid of Hughes I would be happy too. I would rather play in the league below than serve up this dross every week..

Interesting managerial stats for Jardim (according to wikipedia):
played: 577
won: 299
drawn: 137
lost: 141
GF: 1,006
GA: 638
win %: 51.82
(rather better than sparky who's sub 38%...)
but if you include only Monaco - where he was for 4+years - he won 53.8% of the games when he was manager...
LET'S GO GET HIM...!!!!

It would be good if this were to be true. I have no great confidence in Hughes - 14 points from 17 games is a pretty poor record. Obviously yet another manager leaving would not look good but better to do it when a decent replacement is available.

Encouraging performance by Saints, I thought.
Credit to Hughes for trying to win the game with 2 fresh strikers coming on to try to score. My M.O.M. = Højbjerg; he has confidence at the minute and has consolidated his place in the side. He played well for Denmark in his return to the national team last week and he looks increasingly dangerous with his shots from distance. I counted 3 shots by him that all hit the target yesterday (though one of the 3 shots was blocked in the box by a Bournemouth player). One was a great volley after having directed the ball down to his right foot with his chest, and the shot was saved by 2 hands from a flying Begovic (and put out for I corner, I think..).

I'll be glad to see Hughes OUT and to see Jardim IN, but I am not sure that Jardim is a spoon for our mouth at all. In the present days, the Siants team is ruined, in my opinion. He is not expiring with a style of playing and results as well. Honestly speaking, currently the team is the worst team in PL. No defense, no attack - we have nothing. And it is not the fault of the players.....who are pathetic, most of them. But if we want to stay in PL this year we should sack abysmal Hughes and take someone like Jardim or Alardyce. We need someone to kick some asses...

I doubt whether Saints would be inclined to sack a third manager in just over two years at this stage in the season. The situation we are in is worrying, but not yet serious. However, defeat against Newcastle could change all that. Last season the board dithered in making a managerial change till far too late and we escaped relegation by the skin of our teeth. It could well be that the availability of a seemingly quality manager like Jardim and the never ending saga of lack of home games won, might overcome the board's reluctance to pay out yet another manager's and playing staff's redundancy packages.

I think most pundits would have had this as a Bournemouth win, therefore for me it’s a strong performance. We stopped them playing to there strengths and created the best chances( unless you’re Eddie Howe).perhaps not Lady Luck but certainly not down to the manager that Gabbiadini has missed that last minute chance.we seem to be so close in games & we just need a real leader to grab the game by the scruff of the neck & really dominate.i think Hojbjerg is probably the one to do this who for me is growing in confidence & stature all the time.of course Newcastle is massive but we all know if a team hasn’t won for a year and a player hasn’t scored for the club ever it usually happens against saints.im but sure if Hughes is the right man but I wasn’t last season when he kept us up but I do know we have to get behind the team next week come what may!

To be fair- I think we had good spells where we stifled Bournemouth and in the last 10 minutes it was Saints who had the best chances to win the game and Eddie Howe was probably most pleased with one point. Overall, this stalemate had all the ingredients of a competative " derby-type " match. A few clashes of heads, some tough tackling and the odd bookings, but it was the sort of game where for different reasons, both sides were afraid to lose .

Those of you who don't like stats. should avert your eyes, but once again, we've had more shots this season (125) than some of the top 6 , (only M.City, Tottenham and Chelsea have had more), but managed only 6 league goals. NOTE: even Newcastle have only managed 6 so far.

Of course, there was no disgrace in losing games v. Liverpool and Chelsea, both of whom have yet to lose a Prem. match this season. Inevitably it is MH who gets most criticism, but be fair - he's not out on the pitch and even the signing of Ings hasn't boosted the other 3 strikers to open their accounts. It's not as if we have a young / inexperienced strike force as these guys have close on 1000 games (at various clubs) between them ..but their current record is nothing short of abysmal.

Whatever it is that MH can instill in to them has to be shown next week..anything less than a win may see us in the bottom 3 in amonths time. Not sure if he needs to use soft words, or a baseball bat to the head in order to improve them, but we need an upturn in form and we need it NOW.

Yes - it should be seen as a good point, alright Bournemouth weren't at their best but that was partly because we defended better. The only thing in the verdict I disagree with is the idea that 'lady luck' is to blame for us not scoring. This match as it wore on was set up to be a classic 1-0 away win and it was our long-standing lack of quality up front, not luck, that was the problem.

I fear that Austin is now well past his best and the pressure on Ings is therefore immense. Long and Redmond do not score and Gabbi is the bit-part he has been under three managers in a row. We will have other away games where we get a chance or three to grab a vital three points - how many will we take under the current set-up??

We REALLY do need to beat Newcastle...

McCarthy
Cedric Vester Yoshida Bertie
Romeu
Lemina Hojberg(c)
Redmond Ely
Ings

High press with Romeu protecting the defence and pace on the wings, give Ely & Redmond freedom create and swap positions, pull apart the defence give Ings space to make good runs. Get some goals don't drop after scoring constant pressure and force mistakes, this is how we should pay every game.

The bare minimum is a decent performance. We've got some winnable games coming up, although we've hardly won anything in the last 12 months so 'winnable' is all relative.

If you compare Bournemouth's attack to ours its embarrassing. They've got lots of young exciting players who look to take defenders on, create space and beat them. Players with pace and skill. And they've got good options on the bench who can come on and make a difference.
Ultimately, they have a very good manager who they've managed to keep for a long time and they have bought well over the last three years. If only Saints could do the same.
