Lambert chasing incredible record

Daily Echo: RICKIE LAMBERT RICKIE LAMBERT

Rickie Lambert insists he will try and achieve the incredible feat of winning the Golden Boot in every professional division of English football.

The Saints striker has hit the top of the Premier League scoring charts after his double against Aston Villa took his tally for the season to four.

Lambert has won the Golden Boot in three of the past four seasons – twice in League One , once with Saints and once with Bristol Rovers, and once in the Championship , having previously won it with Rochdale in League Two.

To repeat the feat in the Premier League would be his greatest achievement of all and he is already up and running.

“It’s a massive achievement winning the golden boot,” said Lambert. “I’ll give it a go.

“Obviously there’s so many good strikers out there. Who knows?

“I’m just trying to help my team get three points, so that’s all I’m focusing on.”

He added: “This is the first time I’ve scored and we’ve won the game so that’s all that matters. The three points.

“As long as we got the three points I didn’t care who scored.

“Obviously it’s nice to score. I’ve scored two again but this is the feeling I want.

“I don’t want to be feeling ‘yeah nice, I’ve scored a Premier League goal but we’ve actually lost the game.’ “This is the feeling I want and I’m hoping there are going to be more feelings like this to come.”

I read an interview with him in a certain "lads" mag. That he'd love to score against Liverpool in front of the Kop for the Saints (as he's now an avid saints fan).

Hopefully we have nothing to worry about, in regards to him moving to a "bigger" club, after all, we are chasing European football right?

Great second half performance on Saturday. Now looking forward to Everton! COYS.

It is tenuous isn't it? Echo is technically correct. He 'hit' the top, jointly, until vp got his fifth. Would be an extraordinary acheivement to top score in every league! Lambert and Clyne in the team of the week on BBC. COYR!

What else worries you? Ramirez will be snapped up by Man C in January along with:- Spider to go to a top French side, Mayuka to Manure, Yoshida to Chelsea, Clyne to Spurs, Gazza to Real, so we could be very rich financially but very poor on the Player side.

If Liverpool's slide continues it is not only losing RL we need worry about. As NA's stock rises Liverpool might come a calling for NA.

If that was Van Persie who had performed like Rickie in the 2nd half everyone would be raving about his world beating qualities. Show me an English centre forward who should be ahead of him in the national team selection process and I will eat my red and white pin striped shirt.
I saw him at Romsey Rapids a few weeks back, and I must say he looked fit as hell in his speedos.. from a footballing perspective I might add.

Talk this morning was how Rickie left 4-defenders in his wake with his first touch prior to banging in the first!
I love the way his whole game has progressed. He slips out to the left and holds the ball up and passes to one of our players. It works everytime - he can't score when he's out there and defenders seem to switch off leaving space for others to have a go.
I thought Clyne's goal was the pick of the bunch (sorry Rickie) - his first touch in the area was fantastic (as was the flick from Gaston from Rickie's pass!)
As for the chorus of "One Nigel Adkins" was there any doubt? I just love the stability of having one Manager for more than a few games. I just hope we can keep hold of him!

Money talks - he's now 35/1 on Betfair for the golden boot, down from 84/1 where some canny fellow (I hesitate to name him due to the requirements of modesty) managed to lump on him enough to pay for next season's ticket. In that season, the same astute (and devilishly handsome) chap will see him be the winner for the second year in a row.

Nothing like blind faith, is there?

Rickie won't be going anywhere.

I think his age is a factor when other clubs look at him. He will cost any potential bidder £10mil+, and then there is the uncertainty of how many seasons does he have left in him, and if he doesn't work out then they will be lucky to get £2mill for him.

This is mainly why we didn't see Grant Holt move on this season.

RIckie you go ahead and win it... you deserve every accolade. Just sorry you couldn;t have been picked up by the prem when you were younger so you could have had a brilliant England career. Now Golden Boot, PFA Player of the Year and a cap or two for England would be fantastic and achievable.
If you get to read this.. I really hope you know just how much we Sotonians appreciate you sticking it out with Saints and how much we want you to succeed.. not just for our own selfish desire for glory but you you and your family. Good on you Rickie - go for it.

Why is it that this season, every time I read something about Rickie Lambert, he is always referred to as the "30 year Old"

I am sure there are lot more players in the Premier League who are older than Rickie.

Van Persie's 29 and he's still passable as a striker. Not in Rickie's class, but still OK.

You know who Rickie reminds me of (and it's not Grant Holt)? He reminds me of Iorek Byrnison, the polar bear in Philip Pulman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy. If you haven't read it I envy you because they're the most unbelievably amazing series of books and you still have them ahead of you.

Anyway, Iorek was this hard as nails warrior bear who lost his way a bit and ended up washing up in some cackhole restaurant in exchange for whisky (which is pretty much what it must feel like playing for Bristol rovers). He was found by the books' heroine Lyra who recognised his potential and gave him back his pride and his belief and he went on to absolutely boss it over several dimensions. That's pretty much what's happened to Rickie. Hero.

Both Rickie and Clyne made the BBC (Garth Crooks) premier team of the week.
Agree with you on Cline's first touch and Gaston's clip through was not far behind it.

Maybe Rickie's boot sponsors should supply him with a golden pair or with at least some gold on them ready for when he does get it again.
We are confident he can do it so why don't they show the same confidence in the best English striker out there!
On a different note I read through a lot of the reports in the papers on Sunday and all but one were full of praise for the way we played and how it is good to see the Saints fans appreciation of Nigel Adkins.
The Sunday Mirror reporter Anthony Clavane rattles on at the beginning of his report about how some of the fans and media were doubting NA from the start and how baggy chops' name was being mentioned by some fans just before half time.
To be fair he does then go on and give an accurate account of the game which makes we wonder how many moaners and doom and gloom merchants do we have in our ranks if a reporter is picking up this sort of sh1te and writing about it.
COYR OTBTAO !!!

Age is only a number.
Rickie is the fittest he has ever been and has the best possible back room staff to keep him there.
Did age make any difference to Teddy Sherringham? Never had pace, didn't need it.
He had his best years after 30 with Man u and England.
Stay fit Rickie and the future is rosy for you and Saints.

Some years ago a friend of mine, who was a scout for Oxford Utd, knocked my door and said on his recommendation Oxford had signed John Aldridge from Newport County for £75,000. Div 4 to Div 2. I thought he will never score goals at that level, not quick enough.

About 2 years later he knocked on my door again and said Oxford had sold him to Liverpool for £1.2M. I thought well he got away with it in Div 2 he'll never do it in Div 1. Well of course he did and he played for Ireland when they had a good team.

Similar player to Rickie and a scouser as well. I have of course had the same thoughts about Rickie this season and last. Just goes to show what a dreadful judge I am. Too fixated on pace.

Go on Rickie get that goalden boot!

I think the points deduction is triggered when they come out of administration.

Talk this morning was how Rickie left 4-defenders in his wake with his first touch prior to banging in the first! I love the way his whole game has progressed. He slips out to the left and holds the ball up and passes to one of our players. It works everytime - he can't score when he's out there and defenders seem to switch off leaving space for others to have a go. I thought Clyne's goal was the pick of the bunch (sorry Rickie) - his first touch in the area was fantastic (as was the flick from Gaston from Rickie's pass!) As for the chorus of "One Nigel Adkins" was there any doubt? I just love the stability of having one Manager for more than a few games. I just hope we can keep hold of him!
Both Rickie and Clyne made the BBC (Garth Crooks) premier team of the week.
Agree with you on Cline's first touch and Gaston's clip through was not far behind it.
Just been reading Thommo on Skyports. com and according to him "not sure why there was no one around him" when RL scored. Perhaps he was commenting on the penalty. Also he seemed almost reluctant to say Saints were playing well. He implied that it was Villa playing badly rather than Saints playing well. Thompson is like most so called "experts" they find it very difficult to acknowledge when an unfashionable team wins well against a fashionable team as it must be the latter laying badly.

Looking forward to Saints springing a surprise next Saturday and seeing the post-match comments on how poor Everton were.

It was always going to come to this. Sir RL of Toxteth and Sir Nigel of Aigburth being linked back to the scouse homeland.
Easy answer, why would you want to go backwards to a bottom 3 team.

Only joking scouse lars out there ..... you couldn’t afford them really.

All this talk of fear of players and managers being pinched by other teams is interesting.

There is a great feeling around the club at the moment - from the youngsters playing in the youth teams to the Chairman himself and everything in between. If the 'vision' is to be achieved (and we may all have different views on what that is but keeping feet on the ground it could be a strong Premier League team competing for Cups and European Football say), then this debate works both ways.

In times of struggle when we are not getting the breaks and mistakes costing us points - we all keep behind NA and the team and NC as well - without exception!!. In return NC keeps behind NA. In the good times when others start sniffing at our players and manager they too show the same togetherness and loyalty with us and the Chairman - to be part of something good.

It's a lot to ask in a world when the cheque book talks - but I have a feeling that NA is onside with that philosophy and hopefully is signing players that want to be part of a success story - not simply those that come for the money - as they'd be off again as soon as a bigger offer comes along.

Am I living in a dreamworld - or is there a different feeling around SFC at the moment - something special? I sincerely hope that I am right. We might have a great season - we might have a poor one - heaven forbid we might get relegated (don't see that happening at all - too good) but whatever happens we are on a 'net' upward direction. Lets all stick together and ride the wave - it's going to be fun.

Golden boot for Rickie is a reality I can feel it.
That would put us in the top half of the table, happy days.

I think it was on thread, but I admit people do sometimes seem confused and miss the point with me by jumping over hastily to conclusions.

Contained in a celophane bag, I took a very large log I had dumped into the local opticians last week and they chucked me out shouting "This is an opticians - not a gastric problem centre."

I told them I was well aware of that but the point was whenever I do a log like that it makes my eyes water.

They still wouldn't let me in - just trying to save their face I reckon.

Fair enough I'm not disputing the need to have some overview of comments and indeed I am sure we are all rolling around sobbing with remorse.

I was amused by the "not exactly on thread " point though. You are right. But then again if we took out all the comments on these threads that were not "on thread" it would be a sparse wasteland sometimes. And if posters like Confucious were not on here it would be boring as well.



Oh well .. .lets put it behind us, promise to be good little posters.. until next time.

I guess what you said was not exactly on thread so I suppose it was fair enough to reject it. Confucious is a good name for you.
I think it was on thread, but I admit people do sometimes seem confused and miss the point with me by jumping over hastily to conclusions.

Contained in a celophane bag, I took a very large log I had dumped into the local opticians last week and they chucked me out shouting "This is an opticians - not a gastric problem centre."

I told them I was well aware of that but the point was whenever I do a log like that it makes my eyes water.

They still wouldn't let me in - just trying to save their face I reckon.

I've still not worked out why some allocations are so minimal. Is there some kind of negotiation between clubs who know they will be a near capacity regardless of away support? (eg we'll give you 2k at ours if you give us 2k at yours).

No doubt there will be a skate WUM on here mouthing off how poor our away support is, well it isn't for the lack of desire, it's taking what we can get.

You surprise me Southampton Leg End, what with us having won 4-1. Surely with the time you've got in hand from revelling in our loses and denigrating the management, team and fans you could better direct it at the skunts?

There's a post on the News site "I don't trust the trust, if you trust the trust and the trust lets you down, then you lose trust in the trust. then who do you trust, even the trust dont trust the trust. trust me"

Confucious, do you have something to tell us?

Anyway, Iorek was this hard as nails warrior bear who lost his way a bit and ended up washing up in some cackhole restaurant in exchange for whisky (which is pretty much what it must feel like playing for Bristol rovers). He was found by the books' heroine Lyra who recognised his potential and gave him back his pride and his belief and he went on to absolutely boss it over several dimensions. That's pretty much what's happened to Rickie. Hero.
His Dark Materials. Top drawer trilogy. Probably the best series of books ever written. Life-chaning stuff in them there pages. 'Like'.
Well, you've certainly made me sit up and take note. Is it suitable for children, or will the little Strassies have to select the bits they deem suitable for my ears?
It was actually written as a trilogy for teenagers/young adults I think, but it's far better than that - there are some great philosophical/theolo
gical undertones!
