    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.

    Pochettino was sacked from Espanyol wasn't he?

    He might have beaten the chairman's arse raw over the boardroom table as well, but without any evidence it's all total speculation.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    My money is that he didn't get on with Ramirez so the chairman brought in a new manager to try and keep him happy.

    No basis to that at all but it must be something like that as we've had a decent run recently.

    He was. They were bottom of the league when he was sacked.

    That news came as shock tbh. He was doing a pretty good job - steadied the ship quite well. A harsh sacking

    Good result for Adkins on the weekend too, he was doing all the right things. If they were going to sack him I'm surprised they didn't do it earlier. Now seems to be the worst time to do it.

    Absolutely disgusted Adkins has been sacked. Genuinely offended. The man has done so much for the club and they're doing pretty well all things considered. Form recently has been impressive. What exactly do the club think this new guy will be able to achieve that Adkins couldn't? Bearing in mind how well Adkins knows the English game and the players at Southampton. What's Pochettino achieved as a manager? One mid table finish, and lost his last job after 1 point in 13 matches.

    I hate football sometimes. Gutted for the man - seemed completely down to earth and would even quote poetry at press conferences to answer questions!

    It takes time to adjust to Prem football our defense in the first few games was shocking but now the team have a bit of confidence and spirit and were getting some good results Arsenal, Stoke and Chelsea away and he gets the sack. This year's objective was always going to be to avoid relegation which we was on target to do, but hey at least we have swapped for a world class manager!

    Very true. Especially with QPR looking a bit more resilient.
    They're only 3 points off your lot too. To their credit. Lot less people calling for MON's head now, as far as I can tell.

    SSN reporting Walcott set to sign 3 year contract extension.
    Beeb reporting it as a 'done deal' since just before 11am this morning. Formal announcement next week, apparently.

    Hope this marks the turning point of Arsenal keeping our better players (bearing in mind the recent contract extensions for Wilshere, Gibbs, and Oxlaide-Chamberlain). Just need some decent signings of established talent to help these promising British youngsters push on to the next level.

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Guess he's on at least 90kpw now?

    No wonder Arsenal charge so much for a ticket.

    World class manager? Did you miss the part where he got sacked by Espanyol?

    @Mr_Sleep He posted it on his own instagram @j26terry so its probably not a photoshop.
    He probably did cheat though.


    Walcott signing a contract has been made out to be massive news for Arsenal. I guess after Nasri, Fabregas, Van Persie etc. they want to show they can keep hold of their best players. The difference is he is not quite the same level of quality as those that have already left, I doubt any of the other big European teams are really that interested in him.
