Advantages: Pahars is a quality player
Disadvantages: Too many average players, smallest ground in the league
Southampton to be fair have survived for a long time in the top flight, longer than most would have expected. However I think it's about time they went down. They've relied for a long time on Le Tissier to keep them afloat but now he's coming towards the end of his career their reliance has switched to Pahars. I don't think though that he can keep them up single-handed. While I think he's a really good player, he doesn't have the players around him to cause any of the decent sides in the Premiership too many problems.
Southampton have far too many average to poor players to warrant their place in the Premiership. I'm also not convinced by Hoddle as a manager. He's still not proved himself as far as I'm concerned. Still if he keeps Southampton up this year then maybe I'll change my opinion of him.
