Saints At Watford The Verdict
at 16:20:41

Bringing Valery on when Long got injured was a perfectly sensible move as it allowed JWP to go back to midfield. The problem was the tactics. Even when Long was still on the pitch, we were bringing 11 back for Watford corners. If we left one man up that would force Watford to drop someone back as well as giving us an outlet. Instead we retreated further and further which just invites pressure. I cannot believe RH achieved success with his previous clubs playing this way.

Still, if we match Cardiff’s result on Saturday then it’s job done with two to play. We’d have settled for that at the turn of the year wouldn’t we?

Harrison Reed Injury Could End His Season
at 10:24:59

I’d like Saints to give him another go. He could do very well in the PL and I’d rather it was for us than someone else. We need four players competing for the two defensive midfield slots and I’ve yet to be converted need by Slattery.

Celta Vigo Want Permanent Boufal Deal But Not At The Agreed Price
at 11:08:08

Too much of an individualist. Would beat a player, sometimes two, but would then look for a third to beat rather than a pass. Can’t see him fitting into RH’s philosophy.

Elyounoussi Determined To Be A Success At Saints
at 15:06:05

I wish him well, but I'd rather have Sims in the team. We did better when we gave our home-grown players chances to develop than splashing huge sums to bring in players who do little more than block the route to the first team for our own products.

Saints V Huddersfield Town The Verdict
at 12:27:05

If Liverpool want to pay £70m the more fool them. VVD isn't the player he was before his injury and his attitude is poisonous.

Yesterday's match was the most bizarre I've ever seen, certainly at this level. So many players on both sides caught in possession, so many misplaced passes, so many players making incomprehensible decisions.

And now our only goal scorer will be absent for a long time because of his injury and possibly a ban as well. If we don't sign an effective replacement in January we are done for.

Saints to announce Pellegrino in 'The coming hours'.
at 10:45:22

Firstly - let's get 100% behind him.

Secondly - why a long-term contract? 3 years is about right. After max 2 years we'll know if he's up to the job, so we won't have shedloads to pay up if he's sacked. Alternatively, as with the current Spurs and Eveton managers, if he's doing well he'll have his head turned after max 2 years and we'll be able to demand compensation.

Puel Sacked
at 22:42:03

I feel sorry for him. He's an excellent coach who improved a lot of the players. A shame he was robbed of the honour of leading Saints to a cup win. I thought he deserved another season and that we needed stability and continuity. Hopefully we'll get someone in who everyone can unite behind.

Saints Guaranteed Record Breaking Season
at 16:29:24

If Everton can make Koeman the 6th highest paid manager in the WORLD then yes they are mega-rich.

Suppose we ditch Puel. What if the next appointee is someone who's had a few good seasons but then been struggling at the foot of the table and been sacked? Because that's what happened with Pochettino.

Or a manager who took over a fairly high-ranking club in his homeland and was sacked after losing 7 of his first 16 matches? Step forward Ronald Koeman.

Or how about someone who'd previously taken a club down from League One to League Two? Let me introduce Lawrie McMenemy.

Then again we might get lucky and persuade a manager who enjoyed a record-breaking start to a championship-winning season with 13 successive wins! I give you Ian Branfoot.

Or maybe some of the Puel Out brigade fancy taking the job on themselves.

Give the man a break. If a team does better away from home than at home, perhaps the home crowd should consider what part they are playing.
