Never heard of him.  I would have thought Saints need a manager who knows what it takes to get through a relegation fight in the Premier League. Before Xmas they have two very big games: away to Cardiff and Huddersfield. Lose those and the nerves will really start jangling.

"I know a mate called Sammy Allardyci.

Need his number?"

Let's hope not!

Big Sam isn't the man for the long term but his track record in surviving relegation fights is impressive, Chris.  The Saints' board are seriously worried about preserving PL status he could be the answer.  Bringing in a manager with no experience of the PL or even English football would also be a gamble.

Agreed about Big Sam's record. It's just that when Pochettino was appointed as Saints manager nobody had heard of him too. His style was the beginning of the fairly recent good times at Saints. In this respect I'm hoping that Ralph Hasenhuttl can be the new Mauricio Pochettino.

I understand, Chris. These things are always a bit of a gamble. On the positive side your lot have a squad that have more than enough quality to get out of trouble. A new manager just needs to harness it and inject the players with some confidence. 

Kev,

Great result for your boys down at Cardiff the first back to back wins in 2 years.Well pleased for you mate.Getting Pellagrini was a great appointment.

Well pleased with the City performance at Watford.If it wasn't for Ben Foster's superb saves it could have been 6 goals plus.Leroy Sane is really flying.Just so quick on the wing.A defenders nightmare....then you have got the Silva's,Stirling,Mahrez,Gundogan......ah what a midfield !

Pompey six points clear. It’s good to see Jamal Lowe back on the scoresheet, especially as he has gained some weight. 

A comfortable win, which compensated for getting pretty wet during the first half due to sitting very close to the pitch but beyond the shelter of the stand. 

Results elsewhere were also quite helpful. Roll on Tuesday night when Charlton visit Fratton Park.

21 games unbeaten for the Gunners under Unai Emery though Huddersfield did what Huddersfeild do and we desended into a slighlty Wengeresque display at times the Terrier had another gut busting display capped by a bicycle kick winner the little Uruguyan is some player.

it will be very interesting to see who Unai brings in in the next few transfer windows and who leaves but he has four maybe even five players to find before we can mount a serious challenge getting into the Champions League will be very important if we are to attract the right players to the club although we do have some very promising young players but whether they make it through remains to be seen.

I'm going to the Europa league match on Thursday night hopefully young Charlie Gilmour from Hove will get on again I'm really looking forward to seeing some of the young players in action.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Kev,

Wow what a week for your boys and Fulham away on the 15th.Think they should get something there - Hope so.

Mike,

It's looking great for Pompey with the 6 point gap if they keep this form up which I can't see why not it's looking like the championship next season.You must be well pleased.

City had a bad day at the office against Chelski but played well in the first half.Gabriel Jesus was average I thought.He's just not as clinical as the injured Aguero but no excuses Chelsea had a tactical plan and it worked.Pep has always been realistic about picking up defeats along the way this season.I watched the Bournemouth Liverpool game and Mo Salah was awesome just so composed.It's going to be interesting where City and Liverpool are at after Christmas.
