England call-up for Saints stars?

Daily Echo: RICKIE LAMBERT RICKIE LAMBERT

Roy Hodgson will name his squad for England’s next two World Cup qualifiers tomorrow.

The question on Saints fans’ lips will be ‘is there a place for either Adam Lallana or Rickie Lambert?’ Lallana was a late addition to the last senior squad, earning a place on the bench for the 1-1 draw against Ukraine at Wembley.

Although it took a handful of withdrawals from the original group to prompt the inclusion of the midfielder, it proved that he is certainly in the thoughts of Hodgson.

Whether there is space for the 24-year-old in the squad for the fixtures against San Marino and Poland remains to be seen.

Lambert has also been making a case for a place in the England set-up.

With four goals so far this season, he is the joint top English scorer in the division.

I think Lala is more likely, but Hodgsons striker options are limited. He will prefer Carol to Lambert but under current circumstances it is unclear if Carol is ready yet.

It's just great that these rumours can even be started. Two years ago these players were league One and now they are lighting up the best league in the world.

Great - as long as we don't pick up any injuries on international duty. But whatever - this Sunday is far more pressing and vital.

If you apply either the Dempster-Shafer theory or the Kolmogorov formulation on mathematical probabilities you can see that if we don't improve our current points tally in our remaining 34 games by more than 8% while the other seven teams around us do improve on average by 2.5% in their remaining 238 games; providing the mid table six do not deviate from current form by more than 4% in their remaining 204 games, then we will be relegated two points short of survival.

This makes the match against Fulham a "must win".

And don't shrug this off by thinking that all this is based simply on the independent calculation method. It isn't. Three points against Fulham is STILL a must even using mutually exclusive numbers.

PS I have e mailed Nigel with this info (though no reply as of 9.32am).

Who would you rather have up front Rickie, or Bent, Defoe, Carol or wellbeck?
Has to be Rickie, and play Roonie off of him like he does with Van Persie.

I thought the same.

I've mentioned before that some people just come on her and quote the bl**ding obvious. My own view on the Bayesian theory of subjective probability supports the basic ethic of all fans on here, it's all about belief and plausibility.

Nigel will no doubt be drawing up some slides on this for the next team tactics talk. It will however have to be produced in multiple languages given the large nationality distribution within our squad.

... or to put it another way. In recent years the Markov Random Field (MRF) has become the de facto probabilistic model for low-level vision applications. However, in a maximum a posteriori (MAP) framework, MRFs inherently encourage delta function marginal statistics. By contrast, many low-level vision problems have heavy tailed marginal statistics, making the MRF model unsuitable. A recent paper introduced a more general Marginal Probability Field (MPF), of which the MRF is a special, linear case, and show that convex energy MPFs can be used to encourage arbitrary marginal statistics. We introduce a flexible, extensible framework for effectively optimizing the resulting NP-hard MAP problem, based around dual-decomposition and a modified min-cost flow algorithm, and which achieves global optimality in some instances. We use a range of applications, including image denoising and texture synthesis, to demonstrate the benefits of this class of MPF over MRFs.

So, in summary, it's all about vision !!

Even if they don't play just being part of the squad will be a massive boost for their confidence, not to mention the experience of training with some world class players and being coached by world class coaches. If they don't get injured it can only benefit Saints. Lambert should surely get a call up. Lambert and Defoe could be a cracking partnership with Rooney roaming around behind them in a 4-3-3.

Aye. One of the more inconvenient aspects of having a job is you don't get to watch Countdown or Neighbours. I didn't realise Vorderman had left until I saw this new one being interviewed. She's a definite upgrade, even if she is a United fan.

You may be right.

I am a Saints man through and through but I must say I do support England. But it's in the sort of way you support a local non league team, like Eastleigh for example. They will burn brightly now and then but they always return to obscurity. I may be alone in this thought but I have also lost respect for the England players since it is so clear they put money before the team. Thats life I suppose.

Getting back on the beam, I also think Hodgson is unlikely to pick Lambert....unless he's the leading scorer around January .... then we'll see.

I stopped supporting England when my teacher at school told me that Portsmouth was in it.

I decided instead to support the country with the shortest national anthem, because it's noticeable that the longer the anthem is the more rubbish the country is.

Norway was a contender, but everywhere there smells of kippers - and I couldn't take to Italy because it was like being in a foreign country.

I settled for Belgium because I read it was invented by the British to annoy the French.

Come on Belgium.

Do you mean we need 41 points??
In summary I think that's a yes. Homework tonight is to assess the probability of that happening with four games to spare. If we can just get over this early hoodoo I think we will do it with brio and nonchalance. We have an awesome team and it is a travesty that we are where we are.

Your assessment of both current squads is entirely accurate - but my quadruple Saints season tickets were bought on the way down as well as the way up. My love for Saints is unconditional.

I must admit, however, I opted for Belgium because although I love cabbage, the wife ordered me to cut down on it as they orchestrated involuntary tunes from the old trouser trumpet.

To improve yourself in any walk of life you have to be able to push yourself to the next level.

I have to say, after reading through all the above posts, I feel intellectually stimulated, deeply amused and, owing to the occasional mention of Rachel Riley, just a tad ‘flustered’.

Just need someone to get in the beers and it'll already be a d4rn good evening without even having set foot out the door.

Come on Belgium!

A Dutchman and a Belgian are sitting in a bar, watching the evening news.

They see a woman ready to jump from the 6th floor, shouting "I'm going to jump, I'm going to jump!".

One of them says: "I bet she's gonna jump"

The Belgian says " I bet she won't" .

So they bet and the woman jumps.

Then the Dutch tells the Belgian:
"I have to confess that I cheated, as I already saw it on the 1pm news."

"Me too, says the Belgian, I saw it on the 1 pm news too. But I did not
think that she would be stupid enough to jump twice."

I stopped supporting England when my teacher at school told me that Portsmouth was in it.

I decided instead to support the country with the shortest national anthem, because it's noticeable that the longer the anthem is the more rubbish the country is.

Norway was a contender, but everywhere there smells of kippers - and I couldn't take to Italy because it was like being in a foreign country.

I settled for Belgium because I read it was invented by the British to annoy the French.

Come on Belgium.
I think that in the future you might be able to support England. As Portsmouth is an island they are going to apply for home rule, (bit similar to Scotland), freeing you to support England again.
