I'm pretty sure Adkins got a nice cheque in the post anyway, and was re-employed pretty quickly. He'll always be loved by saints fans which is pretty unusual for a sacked manager (Fergie aside!)
This season it is quite impressive how Southampton are able to press high up the pitch for an entire match. They must be ridiculously fit, and all these late goals are testament to that.

The table starting to spread out a bit. 4 point gap now between Everton in 7th and ManU in 8th.
Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham all impressive in their wins over the weekend. Townsend looked very good last night. Not a bad week for him for club and country.
Tom, if you missed the matches on Saturday, you missed one of the goals of the season. Arsenal's first goal was pure class and a showcase in top-quality one-touch football.
Suarez and Sturridge looked good for Liverpool again, but not so sure about their midfield or back four. Liverpool should have won that match against 10-men Newcastle but their defence looked shaky, apart from Mignolet.
Big Big match this weekend with Chelsea v City at Stamford bridge.
Great summary NW14. Thanks a lot. Saw the Wilshere goal. Splendid indeed and Ã–zil looking sharp again - scored twice. Wow yes that will be a belter next Sunday. Too close to call.

don't think united were too bad first half, but the substitutions were baffling.
Southampton were decent. They pressed well, but then that has been a part of their game for two seasons. The key game changer was Moyes' negativity. Again.
I felt United deserved to drop two points more than Southampton deserved to win a point, if that makes any sense.
Bit off topic but I mentioned it in the other thread yesterday. Sky Bet Championship now available on channel 818! First 3 live games this weekend.
