The "do they mean us?" thread

Recommended Posts

If we went 5 games without a goal at home we'd want the manager lobbed in the fcukin sea. This has nothing to do with how badly Southampton's players may have become during that time, look at how bad our players were from January through to Ranieri's sacking. It is what it is. They replaced him which they probably felt they needed to, even though they had a fresh new season ahead for Puel to perhaps work his magic. Their loss. We look the fcukin business now because of it. The games mad.

I desperately wanted Ranieri gone after Southampton, it looked we were going down.

It would have taken an awful manager to not get us out of that champions league group. Bruges and Copenhagen are Championship standard.

 

I can see why they got rid of Puel, they must be gutted that the replacemeng seems to be worse though.

Selling club or a bought out club, having to sell both managers and players by being successful within your means. I was so worried that's what we would become after our title win.

Perhaps being a bit shit after has taken so much heat away it has actually given us a better opportunity to become established in the long term?

Yeah, because you can only compare to things if they are exactly the same.  If Ranieri did come back with Nantes and hammer us in the Europa League next season, would that prove that we shouldn't have sacked him? - No.

 

Puel and Ranieri are both apples, the difference is Ranieri's apple was so much sweeter to begin with and got suddenly bitter and mouldy, Puel's apple at Southampton was never as sweet and juicy but it was still good to start with. The problem was it had already started to turn brown and was going to end up a bitter rotten mess if nothing was done about it.

Your supermarket needs to change its apple suppliers.
