The south coast were roundly criticised for sacking Nigel Adkins in the middle of last season, just when it looked as though his team was coming to terms with the demands of the Premier League.
But the way the Saints have kicked on since the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino suggests the board probably made the right decision and the St Mary’s faithful are expecting big things of their young side this term. Big money has been spent Lyon’s Dejan Lovren and Celtic’s Victor Wanyama which suggests that fans’ favourite may have a bit of a lesser role to play this year but the likes of Jamie Ward-Prowse and Luke Shaw are expected to continue their rise through the ranks and Southampton are a few shrewd judges’ idea of a surprise package this season and could be attractively priced for a top six finish and in the season handicap betting.
