I totally agree that "we" need to know where we fit in the hierarchy of clubs and we are not a big club, I get it. I didn't mention anything about league position, spending power or expectations. I'm not suggesting managers will leave big club jobs to join Saints, not at all, but there are successful managers at all levels.

My point was that Hughes would not have been on a shortlist if Les had been recruiting from a fresh start / between seasons so he should stick to his plan, go back to the list and see who was on it to make the full time appointment. We took Hughes because he was available not because we really wanted him, that was my feeling on his appointment. Maybe i'm wrong and Mark Hughes was his No.1 guy all along and we just got lucky that Stoke sacked him. Seems unlikely.

Honestly I think we need to think long term rather than appoint Hughes just because he kept us up. Frankly he's a mediocre manager, at best. It shows no imagination or forward planning from Les that we would keep him. One of the big things of the 'Southampton Way' is supposed to be having a list of potential candidates and players that suit the philosophy of the club and that can step in when the time is right. Most of those candidates would have been employed in Mid March when we appointed Hughes, there is no way that Hughes was on that wish list of managers. Give him a pat on the back, pay the deal you agreed and get the next guy on the list that is going to take the club forward. #bebetterthanthatles.

I think that would be a good signing, got to trust RK to get the best out of a promising defender. Interestingly the story is in the Mail and almost 1 year to the day they linked us with Caulker for 8m as a replacement for Lovren. Just rehashing old connections?

We spent 12 million on Shane Long last year .

I wouldn't count anything out, especially now we are obviously in a desperate situation with a large bank account.

Chrisdownj No one we mentioned is actually Dutch. I think the point is the Dutch league is not as strong and goals there are easier to come by than say Epl, serie a etc
