The only conclussion that I can draw from this move is that the owner much be a huge fan of Pochettino, because otherwise this sacking/appointment makes no sense at all. Southampton were in good form and seemed as though they were more likely to get away from the relegation zone than fall back into it. The accepted wisdom is that when you sack/lose a manager in the middle of a season, it can either go very well (as when Di Matteo was sacked by West Brom and replaced with Hodgson) or go very badly (as when Owen Coyle left Burnley and was replaced by Brian Laws). The trajectory of the season can change entirely based off the new manager, and as highly regarded as Pochettino, any time a manager comes in to a new team, there's the possibility of things going wrong, and even if it is just a slow start, that might be enough for Southampton to be dragged back into the relegation zone come the end of the season. And I cannot fathom why an owner would gamble with a clubs future like that in the middle of the season, unless of course he is a huge admirer of Pochettino and decided it was worth the gamble to bring him in.

Don't think anyone is questioning the abilities of his successor, it isn't his fault, it just seems unfair.

Nobody likes to see a young English manager lose his job to a foreign manager unproven in this country, especially when the young manager persevered and perhaps even overachieved in such a short time at a club which is a staple of the entire football league.

Adkins not only gave Southampton promotion to the highest level of English football but he seemed to be riding the crest in the premiership as well. To newly promoted teams, keeping their place in the league is a success. Although they're only a few points above the drop, their current form should have been enough for the people in charge to look at Adkins finding his feet and bringing them up steadily.

Days like this I'm glad we have Moyes who has been in the same situation without the history, managed to keep his job and we're doing fine now.

Ticket prices, off the field crap, managers unfairly losing their jobs, poor refereeing decisions affecting the games, teams giving ridiculous contracts to players to help them survive relegation with get out clauses if they don;t... Football is falling deeper into the void.

It seems like nowadays what goes on off the pitch is only secondary to controversy on the pitch when it comes to football. The results and match performances are a short way from becoming less and less a part of the sport, and matter less now than they ever have.

Nigel Adkins has best win % of any manager in So'ton history. Rise of 48 places in league pyramid in 26 months under him.

Football has well and truly gone fucking mad.

Gotta give him credit. He shouldn't get involved in those type of things, so I think he handled that well.

Oh wait one second...

Usually, I just laugh at all the Fergie stuff. I don't hate the guy as most opposing fans do. But after the Pardew thing and now getting involved in this, he is starting to become a bit annoying.

He needs to behave his old ass.
