Southampton sack their manager
« on: March 12, 2018, 10:15:40 PM »
Let’s hope Slav doesn’t make it on the shortlist. Although I reckon they’ll appoint Marco Silva if he is still out of work.

I wait with bated breath for the same old names to be trotted out to fill the position!

Didn't sack him without Silva being in place.

I believe Slav has been the most essential thing for FFC this season but i do not think he would leave considering how things are going for us. But even if by the 1% chance he does leave i think he has left us in great shape and the confidence is so high that any manager could continue our form (minus anyone named Felix or Northern Irish)

Do people really think that Slav would leave a team pushing for promotion to take over a team in a relegation Dog Fight  :023: :023: :023:???

What on earth can a new manager do with 8 games left? He should have gone in January or bite the bullet & keep him till the end of the season.

Jocanovic not the best man to turn Southampton round in eight games but give him a reasonable transfer budget and a close season at Arsenal and he may cause a surprise in the Premiership next season.

Haven't Southampton said that they hope to have a new manager in place by this weekend's cup match? That rules out Slav.

Slav has been mentioned but Mark Hughes seems favourite.  Thank goodness.

What a shame. I like Southampton but Hughes will certainly take them down.  He did enough damage at Stoke and they will probably join them. That will probably be a first taking 2 teams down in the same season and if you include QPR that's a hat trick.

I wonder if the manager change will have any impact on Targett wanting to return to Southampton. I sure would like him to stay a White.

Puel took 'em to 8th in Premier League and a cup final which  is better than ok for Southampton. Grass wasn't greener in this case.
