    He’s certainly not a bad manager, you don’t get a side promoted from EFL2 to the EPL in 7 years without being a good coach. I don’t think any other manager has ever done that in England in history (although happy to be proved wrong). 

    His issue will be the do Plan A better mentality that he has, which was ultimately why Bournemouth got relegated. It’s very similar to the likes of Warburton, Mowbray and other similar managers who’ve came and struggled in the top flight. 

    My worry is that if he gets to bring in his own back room staff, they’ll improve overnight because Lennon and Strachan and co were a joke at the end. He’ll bring in a good level of professionalism that the likes of Rodgers & Gerrard did when they arrived. 

    Interesting appointment, I imagine he’d be a success for them if he was given 3 seasons a la Gerrard. Fortunately, he’ll never get that time from them, so he should be out on his arse by next summer


    Wimbledon with Dave Bassett went from 4th division to the old first division in about 5 years. Graham Taylor did a similar job at Watford.

    If Rangers make the CL next year, they are a bigger draw than a Southampton for a year. 

    2 or 3 CL goals would get him a bigger move next year than 10 or 12 league goals for Southampton I reckon. The like of Wilson, Watkins or Che Adams aren't getting a move to a Lyon like Demele did. 

    How about Ings to Man City? Southampton have a fantastic record of developing players and selling them at a huge profit.

    Hoffenheim have been woeful this season and are not far off a relegation battle. It was also a smash and grab going by the stats 

    Molde finished 19 points behind Bodø/Glimt in the league. Not a simple easy win but definitely the best draw we can get.

    Norwegian league doesn't start back until April as well.

    Anybody else think Tav should be permanently taken off penalties? How many is that he has missed. 6 in two seasons? For such a great striker of the ball, I've never felt confident when he takes one.


    83% career conversion rate.

    Harry Kane is 85%

    Jamie Vardy is 84%

    Ronaldo is 86%

    Messi 79%

    Even the best miss penalties. His penalty record is excellent.

    this pish about how the gov. should have told them not to go, FFS every cunt and his dug knew it was an ever changing scenario, but naw it's someone in authority should have stopped us going, ...grow up ya shower of clownshoes.

    The three days leading up to the second were the worst on record for new cases since the pandemic began. Everybody was expecting increased restrictions except for Lennon.

    How the fuck did a self isolating player have it now, jullien would have caught it in dubai, so say 5 days after he tests positive is when one of his close contacts would have got it, yet everyone has been isolating for a week now at best, certainly his close contacts would have been at least 7-10 days ago

    I wouldnt be surprised if this new case was live last week but it would have meant even more first team players isolating 

    Those players won't have been tested until their self isolation period was over, so in effect it justifies the decision to isolate the 13 players last week. That's not to say it could still have spread further but if it's one other case then it suggests not.

    They lose against Livi and one other game (maybe draw) and thats it, providing we keep winning.

    One game is all that's required for it to be possible. If both teams win every game up to then and we win the lead will be 17 with 18 left to play for.
