Saints and Hughes- a near perfect fit
at 08:52 6 Oct 2018

Seven games into last season Saints had just lost 2-1 to Hughes’ Stoke.

Since then we’ve played a full season of 38 games PL games: W6 D15 L17

Hughes had some time off between clubs and has managed 30 games (15 each at Stoke and Saints): :W6 D7 L17.

Hughes just pips Saints with a 20% win percentage v 16%.

An in terms of Saints losses, it was 9 out of 23 pre-Hughes and has been 8 out of 15 since Hughes, wheras Hughes has been pretty consistent, also losing 9 of his last 15 Stoke games.

It feels like Saints have improved since Pellegrino but in terms of wins and losses, we’re simply losing more. That might be because we’re trying harder to win, leaving ourselves more open at the back, but failing.

What’s Hughes got, five more games to turn this around??

Now that’s what I call disrespectful...

You invite a chap and his missus to stay for the weekend, put on a decent spread and a marching band for him, introduce him to the Queen...what does he do? Slacks off your latest fragile Brexit plan to a national newspaper and tells them Boris has ‚what it takes‘ to be PM. (All lines no doubt fed to him by Farage). Forget flying baby-Trumps, this fella takes contempt to a new level.

Big day today - looking forward to some more Great British Brexit Fudge, or a Cabinet meltdown!
VAR - why no 'challenge' system?
at 13:10 26 Jun 2018

Does anyone know why VAR is not being operated on the basis of some sort of 'challenge' system like in tennis and cricket?

I think the whole thing is a joke, with lots of things being missed and some ridiculous things being given. If each team had, say, only two referrals to VAR per game, wouldn't that even it all out a bit?

I also like that 'umpire's call' idea in cricket, and as VAR is only supposed to reverse clear errors perhaps they need something like that too.
Pellegrino back in management

I wish him well. He was wrong for Saints but he seemed like a decent enough bloke. Interesting to see how he gets on.
