    Pretty sad really. Think the lad just needs to retire. He obviously loves his football, but according to a sufferer I know, it's completely debilitating when he suffers :(
    That's what I thought but the statement on the website says that this is a good thing as he is able to have surgery to correct the disorder once and for all due to his good health recently.

    They even say they expect to see him next season!

    Bit weird of Southampton sacking Nigel Adkins if the story turns out to be true.

    I can't believe that is true, he's turning things around quite well now.

    I'd also be surprised if Saints sacked Adkins, especially given the relative recent improvement in results....

    All over twitter and bookies have apparently suspended betting on it, I can't access any gambling sites at work so can't check that.

    God I hope it's true (from a Blackpool perspective).

    BBC Solent Sport @solentsport
    Original source of #saintsfc story about Pochettino replacing Nigel Adkins came from Spain - the TuttoMercatoWeb - no denials yet from club

    I'd be very surprised hopefully it's just a rumour.

    Very true. Especially with QPR looking a bit more resilient.

    That's idiotic.
    Unless there's something we don't know about behind the scenes, I completely fail to understand why they would do that. He was doing a good job; his team just nicked a point from Chelsea despite going two down, and if they weren't playing for their manager surely they'd have just dropped their heads and given up?

    Nothing on BBC yet?

    If true it's absolutely shocking. I know Southampton fans took a while to warm to him but he's done a good job there. I actually went to a couple of their games last season with a mate and overall they play good, attractive football. Sure they are down there but Ramirez was a quality addition who hasn't been available a lot this season AFAIK, they just need a bit of luck and maybe a defender or two and a keeper and they should be fine.

    Real shame.

    I'm actually just really pissed off about this now. I'd have rather got relegated with Adkins than this.

    Disgusting really.

    Pochettino. Sounds like the Argentinian player. Wonder if it is the case.

    Terry Connor to take over at Saints ensuring they get relegated. Mental.

    He might have demanded transfer money to the extent where the board felt that it tarnished there future working relationship. You can never tell.
