I have nothing against the new manager Mauricio Pochettino. How could I given I've never heard of him! This has the distinct whiff of the Oneday Ramoses about it, and I dearly hope that history repeats itself with this appointment.
Adkins has done a fabulous job at Southampton, so good in fact that, even when the team was struggling at the bottom of the table, the fans of the club still backed him. Why wouldn't they? This guy had taken Southampton from the old Third Division to the Prem in two seasons! And his reward?
Sometimes football leaves a very bad taste in the mouth, and this is one of those occasions. Adkins has been treated shamefully by a club he has served superbly and it is now my sincere hope that Southampton get exactly what they deserve!
