Claudio Ranieri is out of a job. Proven league winner. Just saying.

Just a quick message anyone who goes to the games if you are ever looking for parking, go to crosshouse road it's a 2 min walk from stadium and there are 3 places that provide £5 match day parking. I personally run 1 of them with a capacity of 7 but next door to me offers nearly 15 and over the road lock their cars in during game so u have to be out quicker but they have nearer to 40 spots.

I firmly believe we will regret not bringing a CB or RB that has experience in, come the end if the season. Still think we will be in relegation battle regardless of RH.

Nice and positive mate.

Personally I think we should keep Harrison reed and c9nvert to a rb. he played there with some success for Norwich a couple of seasons back. I think we will bring in a CB. I hope so anyway, and hopefully that will see Stephens moved on.

Che Adams in for Austin, plus a winger (djnepo)? And then it's a case of getting rid of the high earners and players that are not Ralph's plan and then maybe that will allow one more to come in and improve us. Selling is the key.

Who does Hughes have as a defensive coach?

15 league games = 3 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. That's 13 pts, with 14 goals scored and 23 conceded; a goal difference of -9.

MP2's record was superior with 17 pts and a good of -3 after the same number of games. Surprisingly, we now have a better goal scoring record under MP2 as well.

Performances haven't improved under MH. Last summer, only Lemina and Hoedt came in for the first team. This year we have Vestergaard, Elyounoussi, Armstrong, Ings and Gunn challenging for first team places. In addition, MH has no VVD saga to contend with. He's truning us into Stoke 2.0.

Article on football 365 by Steven Chicken

What is the point in Southampton Football Club anymore?

It isn’t to inspire a community with exciting, attacking football, otherwise they wouldn’t have successively appointed Claude Puel, Mauricio Pellegrino and Mark Hughes. If those three were noises, they’d be a series of increasingly exasperated sighs, three grunts echoing off a dirty kitchen sink, a trio of teenagers limply protesting being given additional homework.
They aren’t looking to break into the European spots and take the side on a whirlwind adventure around the Europa League. They were there in 2015/ 16, going out to FC Midtjylland in the qualifying stages following a 1-1 draw and a 1-0 loss, as all Southampton games now appear to end, like they believe football scores can only ever be represented in binary. And then they got there again the following season, going out from a group where Sparta Prague and Hapoel Be’er Sheva progressed (four out of six scorelines entirely in binary there) .

Southampton have instead become the footballing embodiment of the meme in which a cartoon dog sits in a burning house, happily drinking tea and telling himself ‘this is fine’. They have the best defence outside the top five and the worst attack in the top 14. They have so far taken four points from four games, scoring four and conceding four. They are a bag of unflavoured crisps, a magnolia-covered unfurnished rental property, buttered bread with no accompanying soup.

So seriously, what is the point of Southampton Football Club anymore? Where are they going? What do they want?

Football clubs need a reason for being. We have seen with Stoke, Swansea, Sunderland and Aston Villa that if a club doesn’t pick itself a direction – any direction – then the decision is made for them, and it is always down. The Football League is littered with former top-half Premier League clubs that lost their way and never came back, former magnificent galleons now bobbing uselessly in the ocean void.

Exacerbating the issue is the fact that clubs coming up from the Championship now tend to come with a particular plan, whether that’s spending their money plentifully and well (Wolves), cultivating a playing style (Huddersfield, Fulham), or embracing the sheer determination not to waste their chance after unthinkably clawing themselves up from the brink of extinction (Brighton, Bournemouth) .

Southampton used to be one of them. Their model was simple but brilliant: buy unpolished gems, shine them up real nice, prove them suitable for the Premier League, and then sell them on to Liverpool. Between 2013/ 14 and 2016/ 17, they finished 8th, 7th, 6th and 8th. For a while, it wasn’t ‘The Top Six Plus Everton’; it was the cumbersome but nonetheless equally accurate ‘The Top Six Plus Everton And Southampton’.

Now, they are a club that thinks having three of the same so-so striker is the way to take themselves back up in the world, led by a manager who very much gives the impression that he would rather blame anyone and anything else for his sides’ shortcomings than engage in any kind of self-analysis. Their ideal situation seems to be to draw every single game and hope that three of the other clubs either do a Villa, get asset-stripped, or choose to employ Alan Pardew. It’s not the most inspiring stuff, is it?

Football fans might seem like a demanding lot, but all they really want – what they really, really need – is the credible impression that their club might at least be trying to go somewhere. Because if not…what’s the point?

What do you people think?
