10:36 pm
we have come away from those two fixtures with one point. we have drawn more games than any other side in the premier league, only one of the side in the premier league that have won fewer games, that is west brom, who are rooted to the foot of the table. it has not been a great season, the board have given manuel pellegrini now a realfighting chance to try to turn things around but he just has not managed to do it at this point, and with a gap before the next premier league game, they hope to make an appointment that will have an impact on turning things around. it does reek of desperation with only eight games to go. yes, not many. all those cliches, six pointers, every game is a cup game, it is so true in so many ways. the slight added distraction of the quarterfinal cup tie against wigan next weekend. i am sure that

any southampton supporter would say that premier league survival is the priority, as nice as progressing in the cup would be. there are some really tough fixtures. but enough winnable games in there for them to pick up enough points to stay up. fifth manager in six premier league seasons on the bounce, but in the last four seasons, southampton have finished in the top half, so chopping and changing managers has not seem to have affected them, what has gone wrong this season? not seem to have affected them, what has gone wrong this season7|j not seem to have affected them, what has gone wrong this season? i think possibly, the turnover of managers, that has not always been down to the club, we have seen with ronald koeman and with mauricio pochettino they have gone to other clubs in the premier league. some would say, claude puel‘s rain last season was successful in comparison, fair argument. the club took a decision, changed manager, change of manager and the number of players that are

coming in and out, top players have been sold, has not helped make things easier. there is enough quality within the squad and the players are good enough in my opinion to stay up, it is just they have not been showing a combination of performances from themselves, personally, but also maybe in the way that manuel pellegrini —— mauricio pellegrino has done this. —— manuel pellegrini. mauricio pellegrino has done this. -- manuel pellegrini. no matter the predicament of the club, premier league club, always attractive to someone, league club, always attractive to someone, marco silva, former watford man, the favourite with the bookies, men with southampton connection, gordon strachan, former boss, mark hughes, former player, would you go for any of those? a lot of names will be linked with it, and even under the current situation, this is an attractive proposition for somebody coming in to take charge. i have played with and against mark hughes, i have worked under gordon strachan as a manager and saw how

good and the impact he can have. whoever comes in, it has got to be someone whoever comes in, it has got to be someone who has an instant impact. whether it is just a short—term appointment in the summer and see where the club are at that point, with a view to a longer position for somebody, but it need somebody to come in and hit the ground running and have the instant impact. eight games left to play, no room for error now. certainly not. francis benali, many thanks forjoining us. the manchester united captain michael carrick will retire from playing at the end of the season. the 36—year—old has won every club trophy in his 12 years with united including five premier league titles and the champions league. he won 3a england caps. he has only played four times this season after having a procedure to treat an irregular heart rhythm that was detected in september. he is expected to take up a coaching role with the club. there comes a time when your body
