I have to say I have mixed feelings about the names being banded around to take over Saints as Manager. In essence I think we do need someone short-term to build confidence, implement the right tactics etc to get results - but then long-term a manager with fresh ideas, free-flowing attacking football. Is that possible in ONE individual that's available right now?

Personally i'd love to see Gordon Strachan back until the end of the season - I remember the job he did when replacing Stuart Gray all those years ago, but long-term could he compete with the 'new breed' of managers ala Poch and Pep as far as tactics are concerned?

Ben I mentioned Gordon Strachan before Christmas just to be shot down with many comments about how old he was ( 60! ) and wherever he had been he failed. He didn’t fail here, we failed him, well actually Rupert Lowe did. He also in my opinion did well with Scotland considering he didn’t really have a shed load of great players to work with and left when he couldn’t take the team any further. What he would give to us is aggressive motivation in the dressing room which is so desperately lacking and probably make them laugh at the same time as putting the fear of god in them. Just don’t see the credentials of Mark Hughes giving us any more inspiration than we had with MP.
