If we have difficulty finding a good manager, the Saints have no chance. As a club, Southampton are an absolute disgrace.

Not quite correct. Our 4-1 tanking at Southampton was game 13 in the Premier League season, way back on 26 November.
In their 17 Premier League games in the last 4 months since then, they have won just one more game, away to West Brom on 3 February.
Yes. There are teams worse than Everton in the Premier League...

Two years ago, Southampton finished sixth, qualified for the Europa League and appeared to be in the midst of an impressive ascent under Koeman.
Now they're on the brink of relegation (and I think there's a good chance they may go down, unless this new manager sparks some serious fight in them).

It should only serve as a sobering reminder of what happens when a club continually sells away their best players in order to make profits and under the deluded belief that their system is what matters and not the need for talented footballers. Just look at the players they've let go only in the past few years, and even only to Liverpool!! Sane, Lallana, Van Dijk, Clyne, Lovren all at Liverpool.
Expand that outside just that club across the park and you have Luke Shaw, Wanyama, Schneiderlin (was good for them), Jay Rodriguez (was very good for them), Chambers. They just sell off a player once he has value to pocket all that cash and just try to exist in the Premier League with the riches that come with it. No ambition to do anything more than that. Wouldn't miss them from the league at all.

Ugly little modern ground, fans are unrealistic, board takes the mick every summer.
Fired Nigel Adkins unfairly likewise Puel so have no sympathy when their managers walk out on them. They're now paying for years of cynical decisions.
But while WBA are gone, Stoke and Palace are still likely candidates. Hope the former are more so after Saturday...

All we have to look forward to is an endless procession of sub-standard managers each one less impressive than the last.

So where are the neighbours going to get their players in the future.
They're doomed, I tell ye, doomed.
