    Ian, How do you do this? I’ve only just stopped swearing at the PC having read about the decision to sack Adkins and you’ve already summed the whole grubby tale up neatly and (very) readably. Blimey.

  2. As a Reading fan, I feel smug this morning – we may go down but the moral hugh ground has been well and truly captured. It is now an ethical imperative that Saints, with their obscene spending of the summer and diabolical treatment of Adkins, tumble back into the Championship. Perhaps only QPR are more loathesome now.

    That’s until we sack McDermott and sign Arshavin of course!

    One can only imagine that the Southampton baord thought they should be top four and/or the new manager is someone’s mate. Shocking move, mainly because it is unlikely to make Southampton’s situation that much better and might make it a lot worse. And, as the correspondent above suggests, a few people might not be upset if the latter turns out to be the case now.

    After such despicable conduct toward Nigel Adkins , Southampton will garner their just desserts , they will eventually “reap as they sow” and deservedly ‘qualify’ for a place in the Championship next season !

    Interesting that the club are preventing media ‘vox pop’ interviews with fans both inside and outside the ground before the match tonight!!
