You have to admire Southampton manager Nigel Adkins for coming out and saying that he’s the favorite to be the first Premier League boss to get sacked this season. Typically managers under pressure will go on the defensive and will keep uttering cliches about taking it from game to game, etcetera. But not Adkins.

Interestingly, Adkins’ remarks should take the pressure off a little since the press now won’t keep on piling on the pressure. Southampton’s next match is a must-win home game against Swansea on Saturday.
