Adkins Sacked Over Transfer Disputes
It seems that Nicola Cortese and other members of Saints heirarchy were pulling in a completely different way to Nigel regarding possible targets for the club.
Apparently Gaston Ramirez was signed without his knowledge. Adkins was also disappointed when the club failed to sign his top central defensive target Bram Nuytick, instead bringing in Maya Yoshida.
The Mirror report says, Cortese is believed to have disagreed with the decision of Adkins not to sign a top-class goalkeeper in the summer, particularly as he was forced to make an emergency move for Artur Boruc outside the transfer window.

If this is true it does make sense for Cortese to find someone who is on the same wavelength as him. How this affects our academy hopes is another story.
