A few reflections from a long dog walk .

It seems that we will be relying on a bunch of youngsters, a handful of loanees and the Armstrongs to lead the charge back to the PL.

If RM pulls that off it will be a water into wine story.

It's too early to make any sound judgments four games in, but I can foresee a time when opponents will pay us a little less respect than they are at the moment. On the other hand, with each passing month, the team should become more settled.

In short, if we make it back, RM will have performed a minor miracle.

In the words of Vincent Company, the gulf between the PL and Championship is the biggest in world football. But that's a debate for another day!

Deja vu or what .

Option 1 - build on a good away win and 4 days later, play a similar team with a couple of changes with the objective of beating a league 2 side and progressing to the next round. Confidence remains high and fans appreciate they have not been undersold.


Option 2 - join the list of clever dick managers too cocky by half and play a completely 'alternative' team to show how genius they are.

Already RM has shown that he has not got what it takes. Why on earth would you experiment at this stage of the season. Had we won, what would that have proved. To be smashed just makes a mockery of everything.

It would have been far more beneficial to have given the same or similar team that played at Sheff Wed another opportunity to embed this so called high possession tactic and work on improving movement and understanding.

Sorry guys, but we will be looking to replace the 'did ok at Swansea' wannabe manager well before Christmas.

No excuses - shambolic result with no excuses.

With less than a week to go until our first game why have we not made any real progress in the transfer market? We still need an at an experienced center mid to replace romeu and a goal keeper in my opinion. We still have all the players who we know want out. Going to be a busy deadline day for us I think.

Couple of questions would love perspectives on.

1. If JWP leaves who would you make captain?
2.If we had 50 mil to spend on transfers who would you buy or which positions would you strengthen?

Leicester doing some very sensible signings in Coady and Winks for just £17.5m.

Experienced players and leaders that definitely will do a job in the Championship.

Let's hope Saints can follow suit.

I met a guy in a London pub some months ago, who claimed to be an agent (researched him and it was legit) - he claimed Southampton owners had planned the relegation of Southampton. Board decisions, performances and results back this up - could there be truth in this? Is that even possible?

{Ed002's Note - Of course not. He was clearly teasing you.}

As no one is posting, I thought I'd better add something .
So we finally realise/decide, that 433 / 424 / 442 worked . minimum of two up front, being fed by two wingers . about 3 seasons late!

But best of all was giving Lavia the true holding midfielder role on his own, box to box, strong, fast, agile, clever, attacking, positive .

What a difference having a midfield player like this makes .
we had Romeu in the holding role, but was too slow, caught out of position, poor in attack.
JWP neither holding or anything to be honest.
Imagine if we had built out team around Lavia all season!
Building our team around a very slow, very predictable JWP has added to our playing style. I doubt we'll keep Lavia or JWP, but it's obvious what we need . a Harrison Reed style player who we let go .

Finally we looked like scoring every attack.
Sadly let down by some poor defending and great goals from forest!

The end of our PL era. We simply have not played good enough football, our basics have been awful .

Well.yet more baffling selections and although we played some good stuff at times, we ain't good enough to walk it into the net. Why don't the coaches teach our steikers to f***ing shoot! Time to start the process for next season in the Championship and hopefully do what Burnley have done. Get a decent, hungry manager (Lampard did OK with Derby or give Rooney a shot), back them with money we get from JWP, Latvia, Sulemana - who let's face it, are all going to go - and make us a team that no-one wants to play against! Until the maths say we r down, I will always hope.but I'm bit an idiot ?! Saints til I die!
