    This outlook does make me feel slightly better Brendy, and you’re correct. Thank you.

    As is well known , I am now a fan of saints as opposed to being a supporter . I have to say though that people moan wanting a replacement , and even before the probable candidate is in place they moan <doh>

    Moan for the sacking of Pellegrino, Now moan that Saints don't go for a manager who will drop us the second he gets a better offer.

    I'm a little bit reserved on MH, but if he keeps us up I'm more than happy.

    Maybe not. But it is the sort of price which says the bookies don't want to take any more bets on that outcome.

    And as my old nan used to say, you never see a bookie on a bike <ok>

    The issue with Hughes is that players tend to seriously dislike him, and consequently he has rapidly diminishing returns as a manager. Similar to us, Stoke declined long before their league position crashed.

    1. He’s got plenty of EPL experience
    2. He isn’t Pulis
    3. He isn’t Big Sam
    4. He isn’t Moyes

    Call me easily pleased if you like. The fact is that Poch was not greeted as the real deal and TLD was unproven in the EPL. Neither manager we wanted to leave. Getting 3 brilliant selections in a row was beyond the board so it’s not a bad time to play fairly safe. Assuming that we stay up, there will plenty of opportunities to call for Hughes’ head next season, after any poor result, on here, as usual.

    How have we fallen? Is that a genuine question?

    Whether you go back last season when we beat Inter or even further when we played some of the best football in the league under Pochettino - i think its pretty clear we have fallen drastically!

    As for Hughes, I really dont rate him and think if we got him we would find ourselves in the same situation of dull football amd poor league form next season. I would obviously give hime my full support if he got the job but that doesnt mean i dont think he is crap!

    You can’t say things like that. Nobody will believe you.

    Mark Hughes might become our version of Sean Dyche...

    Ah, votes of confidence all round it is then :emoticon-0101-sadsm

    Can anyone brighten the mood (a little) by naming the last SSouthampton F. C Manager who was (almost?) universally welcomed by the Saints fans?
