Our sports correspondent Sarah Gomme sends this reaction to the decision to sack Southampton manager Nigel Adkins.
Shocked, disappointed, angry - just some of the words being communicated to me via Twitter describing the reaction among fans following Nigel Adkins' dismissal.
This was not the news we were expecting to hear just hours ahead of a press conference where Adkins was expected to preview Monday night's match against Everton.
After winning a hard-fought, but deserved point at Chelsea - Adkins steered Saints out of the relegation zone to 15th place.
Safety, not secured, but a very realistic hope among fans. And rightfully so.
Only last weekend fans remained in the stands at Villa Park long after kick off simply to sing his name. How will those same fans voice their reaction to his absence on Monday at St Mary's?
