Southampton finished 8 on 46 points last season, I'm not seeing a team in the league outside the top 6 that I look at and think they will definitely get 50+ points this season. As daft as it may seem right now because how bad we look, it isnt impossible to get towards 50 points as you say with a good manager in, get the players back in form and rectify the problems with a couple of additions in January.
But at the moment we just need to be as solid as we can and get some results to help build the confidence of the players to stop looking as bad as we do.
Agreed. I understand people going into 'this season is all about survival' mode but that is a bit doom and gloomy. We will have more money to spend in Jan than most others outside the top 6 and have the potential to be ok. Ok in this league can get you 7th because the majority of the league is a bag of shite
That's why I'm not panicking, or in denial
