Nigel Adkins Sacked

Nigel Adkins Sacked

Nigel took us from the lower regions of Division One to 15th in the Premier League.

He will always be a Saints Legend to me and dare I say it, to many of our fans.

I am totally gutted.I have no idea what Cortese is thinking. Worse we have replaced hin with a man that is getting his first managerial role in this country according to the Beeb.

Thank you for a great bus-ride Nigel. Good luck for the future.

Absolutely shocking, especially given your recent results

unbelievable, he was doing a good job, nice style of play, got some great results recently, had dragged you slightly away from the drop zone, great draws v Chelsea and Arsenal, win v us (Villa)... What the hell did your board expect this season? Hope you all protest against your board for that decision.

From an Argyle fan - of all the surprise sackings this one is mind boggling - absolutely shocking. He would have kept you up easy and now you have a new guy for the important part of the season. Awful.

Shocking, was doing a decent Job. Think the board need to remember they were in league one not so long ago

Unbelievable. Our season was just starting to turn around and Cortese does this? I'm not sure I have the words to describe how I feel tight at this moment

Pompey fan here guys.. Gotta say this is a shocking decision I honestly thought that it would be Atkins that kept you in the Prem this season .. With him gone I fear for you. .. Your board must be nutters IMO .. Best of luck... think you may really need it now !

Absolute disgrace, we Villa and Saints fans have been having some good posts this last week and I feel for Nigel and all those that care about Southampton FC. I think all the clubs fighting at the foot of the table will be inspired by this and I fear your season could really go down hill. Unbeaten in the last five, fantastic draws against some of best clubs in the div and a win against us. Just madness. I wish you the best of luck for the rest of the seasen and I suppose time will tell if this is the right decision.
