Mauricio Pochettino took over the helm at St Mary's following the shock dismissal of Nigel Adkins earlier this month.

The new boss has taken charge of just one game so far, a home draw with Everton, but that has formed part of a six-match unbeaten run which has lifted Saints away from the relegation zone.

Giggs said. "Everyone was shocked when Nigel Adkins went, but ultimately players have got a job to do. They just get on with it.

"The new manager will put his ideas across and players will just get on with it.

"It will be another tough game for us. Southampton have been in decent form and gave us a good game earlier in the season, so we'll need to play well.

"You want to perform well for your satisfaction and your own form. It also gives you confidence going into the next game."

Giggs also insisted that the Premier League leaders will not allow thoughts of Champions League opponents Real Madrid to cloud their title assault.

"We're not thinking about Madrid," said Giggs. "Everyone was excited when the draw was made but you can't look too far ahead.

"You want to perform in games like that and be in good form going into them. That is what we intend to do and the best way of achieving that is to concentrate on the opponents immediately ahead."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
