Depends if you class a businesses 'performing better' by merely existing for a long time, or existing for a shorter period and making a profit.

I think that this is the real issue. The club has come so far, at one stage this season going as high as third. Their club has peaked and it isn't going to get any better unless there is substantial investment. At this stage, the difference between a 10 goal a season striker and a 15 goal a season striker costs a huge amount. To make sure you have the same quality sitting on the bench, ready to come on takes you into the spending territory of Man City & Chelsea.

If I was the Southampton owner, I'd be seriously thinking that the stock has peaked and to sell now because the only way forward is downwards.

That could well come, though; it's not often a relatively successful club, with a decent infrastructure already in place, ready to kick on to the next level, has owners who don't seem all that interested in actually having anything to do with it. I can only imagine it would be a relative bargain for any aspiring Abramovich, inasmuch as they wouldn't have to put up that much of a fight to wrestle it from Liebherr's reluctant hands.

Got a feeling they are going to implode at some point in the not too distant future. Be interested to see the odds on relegation for next season, or perhaps the season after.

In isolation, not a big deal - but change of manager and likely departures of star players it could be a gloomy outlook.
Let's hope so, as it seems Fat Sam is staying put and I suspect he will not allow another poor season from his players - ruthless transfer policy impending there.
A few leadership calamities next season can only be good news for us.

He joined Southampton mainly because of Cortese who has now gone. Also it seems that their budget is being cut for next season and there's rumours that the owner wants out. Hardly makes him a mercenary.

BS. He's been there 5 mins and Southampton gave him his big chance here. He should stay with them at least for a couple of years. Depresses the hell out of me how this happens. It's sad to see clubs like Southampton, with their focus on youth development, being subjected to the vultures.
