As someone who had a season ticket at Southampton for a while (forgive me) I recognise this was the model Adkins and Pochettino had implemented to good effect. Then, cough, Koeman changed it. Sometimes more money doesn't help, it can distort the thinking.I live in Bournemouth now and was talking to one of their training staff the other day. He was saying how anyone playing for Bournemouth at any level is expected to play at the same style no matter their age or status re squad from the academy to the seniors. It shows in their style of play and makes sense in a football way. Not saying Howe is the man but we need a manager with a vision like that
