Saint Nige

Little more than a week after his departure from St James' Park, Nigel Pearson has taken charge of the rudderless ship that was Southampton in a move that has left Saints fans and former players rather bemused.

The new man at the helm didn't get off to the best of starts, either - tonight his side, no doubt still reeling after the FA Cup defeat to Bristol Rovers at the weekend, were torpedoed at home by Plymouth, whose manager Paul Sturrock - whose own posterior rested briefly on the Saints' hotseat - no doubt enjoyed every minute.

Southampton currently lie six points off the relegation places and are in desperate need of a win - sound familiar?
