Southampton have sacked manager Nigel Adkins after 2.5 years in charge, and have appointed Argentine Mauricio Pochettino as his replacement.

According to the BBC, Pochettino took charge of Espanyol at the age of 36 in January 2009, and managed a best finish of eighth in La Liga in 2010-11. He left the club by mutual consent at the end of November 2012, with an overall record of 49 wins from 146 league matches.

In other news, it’s a good morning for Arsenal fans as Sky Sports is reporting that Theo Walcott has signed a three-year new deal.

    Horrible news for Southampton fans, but as a Villa fan, this is wonderful news. Any distractions with our other relegation candidates is a good thing. I hate seeing managers sacked so easily though. He did a good job for them. I hope he lands somewhere else in the near future. UTV

    More evidence that chairmen no f*ck all about football. Adkins brought them back from nowhere and had a team looking like they would stay up. The new bloke has no track record despite what the idiot chairman thinks. Watch them implode and go down. Adkins won’t be out of work for too long.

    So here we are again with Arsenal. Another inconsistent and overhyped player signing an overpaid contract,charming I hear that Andre Santos is close to signing an improved 3 year contract apparently to fend off interested parties.. Ha ha ha
