  • "Headlines will dictate the fact that Lambert is an outstanding scorer, adaptable, good feet and football brain for a big Guy.He will score at any level, look at his mate Holt for example.
    Teams in this division defend his dead balls better but in open play he is a nightmare for central defenders.
    Boogie Freedman overlooked the fact that Hammond and Chaplow were the key to this win.Deano has lead by example for the last 2,Chappers was back to what he does best.
    Fonte looked back to his best as well, overall a great all round performance by the whole team. 7 out of 10 all round, IMO.
    Together as one. COYR."

Lambert backed for top flight success



First published in Sport

Rickie Lambert WILL score goals in the Premier League next season.

That was the view of Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman after Lambert’s double had given Saints a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park yesterday.

Lambert now has 30 league and cup goals to his name this term, including 26 in the league.

Freedman admitted: "Rickie Lambert was the difference.

"He has experience and if I was a betting man I'd say he'll produce a few goals in the Premier League.

"The first goal was against the run of play and was a bitter pill to swallow.

"But I'm very happy with our performance. We gave it a right good go with six youngsters against a top team."
