The final fixture of the weekend is on Monday, when we'll see Southampton travel to West Brom, looking to get their first win in a couple of months.
When you're on a run like that, it's very difficult to keep motivating the players, because they're not as confident and it becomes a struggle to get yourself going for a match.
One of the most ridiculous suggestions I've heard and read about is that Nigel Adkins is supposedly "under pressure."
Why? Is two promotions in as many years not good enough for some fans, pundits or experts?
It's ludicrous to suggest that the man should be under any pressure whatsoever after what he's achieved at the club.
Has he made mistakes?
He'd be the first to admit that he has, but that's part and parcel of being a manager.
Even the very best managers in the world make mistakes from time to time.
Southampton's hosts on Monday are West Brom and they couldn't be in a more different position than Saints.
Full of confidence, playing great football and, in my opinion, they were incredibly unlucky to lose to Manchester City last weekend.
Steve Clarke has done, and will continue to do, an excellent job there if the start he's made is anything to go by.
Shane Long has been one of the stars of the show this season and he continues to impress.
He can score goals, create chances and most importantly, he's good at bringing other players into the match.
I think Long's star will continue to shine on Monday and if Southampton are as naive defensively as they have been already this season, Shane Long could come away with a couple of goals on Monday night.
