Rickie Lambert out to strike while the iron’s hot

Daily Echo: Rickie Lambert celebrates scoring against Millwall Rickie Lambert celebrates scoring against Millwall

RICKIE Lambert cannot wait for the chance to take Saints closer to the Premier League at Hull City tomorrow night.

Having completed his fourth hat-trick of the season in a sensational finish at Millwall, Lambert is ready for another big test away from home.

“We all know this was a hard game, and maybe we’re fortunate to have got the three points, but we’re all made up and we’re going to take that into Tuesday now,” he said.

“Honestly, we’re all buzzing, and the lads'

confidence is now even higher.”

Lambert has another match ball to add to his growing collection, but adding another three points to Saints’ total was more pleasing than increasing his goal tally.

“It’s another ball that will lay about in the house, but I’m more made up that we got the three points today,” he continued.

“It was frustrating to go into half time 2-1 down but we were always confident that we could come back and win it.

“I thought we were excellent in the first 25-30 minutes we went 1-0 up and were unlucky when the 'keeper made a good save off my shot to stop us from going 2-0 up.

“But we should never have got into the situation that we were at 2-1 down because we didn’t deserve to be.”

Lambert was brought down by a grounded Paul Robinson before scoring the equalising goal.

“There was contact there and it was a pen,” he said.

“It was good play leading up to it from Billy Sharp who I thought was excellent when he came on.

“He made some really good runs and I was hoping that he was going to pull it back and he put it exactly where I wanted it.

“I managed to get to it but the defender put his foot across me.

“It was a battle as it always is against both Robinson and Ward.”

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way"

The opening sentence from a "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens.

It has never applied more to the fate of two cities, or two football teams, one at the top top, one at the bottom.

The photo in this article shows how the Saints fans feel today. It wasn't that long ago that we almost sank without trace. Dark times.

We have almost returned to where we deserve to be .. and for another team just down the road the future is uncertain. But without that team, the joy of promotion would be slightly less sweet. The joy of winning local derbies would be taken from us, and a little bit of football history would be erased. That in itself is not something to wish for.

It is never a good thing for a club to go under, it reflects changes in the football world that will undoubtedly get worse in the next few years. The old saying about the rich get richer and the poor get poorer seems even more apt in todays leagues.

The huge burgeoning debt mountain at the very top clubs will surely implode one day, much like the Banks over the last couple of years. The huge reliance in TV revenue for the premiership is now so complete that it is only a matter of time before football becomes completely engulfed in TV schedules. We have already seen the removal of the standard 3pm Saturday kick offs. We are now at the beck and call of TV advertisers and prime time scheduling. During the USA world cup they even wanted games segmented into quarters so they could get more adverts in, fortunately this was never implemented though. But it may well come back in future. Its a bleak outlook if it goes that way.

I hope we remain prosperous and in the hands of prudent owners for many years to come. It is only under such conditions that we will remain at the forefront of English football.

So bear that in mind when smiling at the misfortune of another club. It can happen to any club.

Seedhouse the Unrepentant says...

It is the failure of teams who cheat by spending money they don't have that will bring football down to earth. It needs several to implode to make the rest sit up and change their ways - the fact that it's Portsmouth is co-incidental to that.

Sky pay a lot of money to show football so they can charge their customers higher prices and get the best revenue from their advertisers. The fact that football does not distribute that money sensibly and those in receipt of it just increase wages to the same pool of players rather than improving infrastructure is down to the poor management within football rather than the fault of Sky.

When the house of cards that is football financial management collapses it will be to the benefit of teams such as our own who insist on living within their means. NC is determined to do this and dare I say it this was also a certain Wooperts philosophy as well.

The opening sentence from a "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens.

It has never applied more to the fate of two cities, or two football teams, one at the top top, one at the bottom.

The photo in this article shows how the Saints fans feel today. It wasn't that long ago that we almost sank without trace. Dark times.

We have almost returned to where we deserve to be .. and for another team just down the road the future is uncertain. But without that team, the joy of promotion would be slightly less sweet. The joy of winning local derbies would be taken from us, and a little bit of football history would be erased. That in itself is not something to wish for.

It is never a good thing for a club to go under, it reflects changes in the football world that will undoubtedly get worse in the next few years. The old saying about the rich get richer and the poor get poorer seems even more apt in todays leagues.

The huge burgeoning debt mountain at the very top clubs will surely implode one day, much like the Banks over the last couple of years. The huge reliance in TV revenue for the premiership is now so complete that it is only a matter of time before football becomes completely engulfed in TV schedules. We have already seen the removal of the standard 3pm Saturday kick offs. We are now at the beck and call of TV advertisers and prime time scheduling. During the USA world cup they even wanted games segmented into quarters so they could get more adverts in, fortunately this was never implemented though. But it may well come back in future. Its a bleak outlook if it goes that way.

I hope we remain prosperous and in the hands of prudent owners for many years to come. It is only under such conditions that we will remain at the forefront of English football.

So bear that in mind when smiling at the misfortune of another club. It can happen to any club.

1. JohnItaly, re: hatricks, you've been answered on an earlier thread. Some bloke from Boro before the war got 9 apparently. So, Ricky needs 6 more from 9 games; easy.

2. Alice'sDad, do I want the Skates to go bust? I don't care.... BUT, I care enough about football to want exactly what Seedhouse has posted above. Sorry, I otherwise agree with the bulk of your post. They'll be back one day and their fans ........ their hundreds of thousands of totally committed best fans in the world ....... won't be going away, so the banter will continue.

3. Southampton Boy, I had thought 84 points would be enough but I've changed my mind. If Wham and Reading keep winning, the third-placed team could end up in the play-offs with nearer 90 points on the board. Hope I'm wrong!

Old enough to marry, old enough to work, old enough to pay tax, but NOT old enough to write that 'we'll probably lose 4-0'. You have to have been a fan through several dark periods before you're allowed to be that cynical.

16! I hit 16 at the start of the 78-9 season. Can't remember the score on or just after my sixteenth but that season was one to savour; League Cup Final, FA Cup quarters and some fantastic footy. But then this season isn't bad either, is it?

Dear Sirs

I am a Southampton fan. I am writing because I am concerned at rumours of a deliberate manipulation and of a misuse of the loan system by West Ham. I do not know whether there is any truth in the rumours or whether any rules have been breached but I would like your reassurance that the matter will be investigated.

I hear that West Ham are loaning out players to teams that have yet to play Southampton in an attempt to strengthen those teams when they play Southampton. I have also heard that West Ham have a 'loan fee' of £700,000 for a reserve goalkeeper from Portsmouth but, that they do not need the player and have no intention of playing him in the first team this season or even putting him on the bench, the sole reason for paying such a substantial fee being to keep Portsmouth afloat long enough so that points won against Portsmouth are not deducted. The fact that West Ham have most to lose from points won against Portsmouth being expunged gives credence to these rumours.

Please can I have the League's reassurance that these matters will be investigated immediately and thoroughly and that any breach of the rules/regulations will be punished before the end of the season? It seems to me that if these rumours are true and even if there is not technically a breach then at the very least these actions must go against the spirit of the rules. Manipulation of the system in such a manner must surely bring the game into disrepute.

Agree re TV but the skates do need to go bust to remind clubs to pay for players that take them on a fake run. If you borrow you pay back! You don't borrow on spec. Tough luck to the imposter club Pompey.

Agree regarding TV.. It taken away the 3pm kick off for all but club rugby in NZ. The professional game is Super Rugby takes all the money and it's all night games and gates are starting to fail.. NZ Rugby has no money - lost millions on the RWC. It was much better off when it was an amateur game. Even the National provincial scene is flagging and that was the mainstay... all down to TV.

That said I can't wait to see Saints back in the prem and on telly in NZ next season.

The cream always rises to the top. West Ham are below us with all their first choice players, so I wouldn't worry too much about their second string going out on loan. As for Poopey, I hope they survive. I don't want to win the league by default, I want to win the league because we have been the best team.

I'll be there RA1 - won't be pubbing it though! Hull is not the nicest or friendliest of places, especially if they lose. Singers standing at the back, loud & proud - I'll try and join in and be heard.

Old enough to marry, old enough to work, old enough to pay tax, but NOT old enough to write that 'we'll probably lose 4-0'. You have to have been a fan through several dark periods before you're allowed to be that cynical.

16! I hit 16 at the start of the 78-9 season. Can't remember the score on or just after my sixteenth but that season was one to savour; League Cup Final, FA Cup quarters and some fantastic footy. But then this season isn't bad either, is it?
You look much older than that Strass.

I've been doing some sums, Slugger. I think there's a correlation between the amount of players they have in their squad and the size of their gates.

At the start of the season, when they had between 25-30 players on their books, they were packing in a massive ...... um ..... 20,000 or so.

Now they're down to 15 players, a couple of youth trainees and an old woman in a wheelchair, their gates are similar to ....... um ...... Bradford City in League 2.

That's the point. One player leaves and his sponsor leaves with him, and the sponsor takes his wife, all his girlfriends, sisters and cousins ...... that's, say, 10 ...... and then there's all his kids from those 10 mothers, which would account for the other 500 or so that each lost player and sponsor shaves off the gate.

Still, if THEY claim to be the best fans in the world, who are we and the army of overseas fans and the 24,000+ SMS regulars to disagree?

It's all that fresh, sea air you get down there, Rob. Which begs the question, how old must Dan be. He only looks 80!

Let's thump them at St Mary's and then watch what happens to them.

It looks grim to me and my guess is no one will come in for them. But they will leave it too late to realise in time to start again for next season. They will lose momentum as a result and moan a lot.

Only a guess mind you.

Does anyone know the record for the number of hat-tricks in the football league in a season by a single player? Would be good if RL could emulate Messi this season as he (i think) has scored seven (7) for Barcelona.
I think it's George Henry Camsell ( Middlesbro 1925 to 1939)
In the 1926-7 season he scored 59 league goals which included 9 hat tricks. He scored a total of 63 goals in all competions that season and 345 goals in 453 games between 1925 - 1939.
He also made 9 appearances for England and scored in every game he played. This included a hat trick against Wales in a home international in 1929 and four goals against Belgium in the same year.
Come on Rickie! only another 5 to go!!

Today we should gear up for

RELENTLESS EFFORT AND PRESSURE ..

That is what will drive us onto the WIN tonight.

That is how we achieved the WIN against millwall with the two penalties.

The Crowd must also get off to a flyer and shake off any flatness.

A visit to the Three Crowns should help getting the Teamwork going and quench any thirst from the journey.

WE GO IN COLOURS TO FIGHT FOR THE WIN.

As posted before - forget whether Home or Away :

THIS IS ONE OF 9 GAMES TO GET TO OUR HOME - THE PREMIER LEAGUE.

Let's travel - let's have a couple of beers and LET'S DO THIS !!!

The Players must work with quality for the WIN and Nigel must use his experience of his time at the MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON and his previous managerial experience to achieve the 3 Points.

NO what ifs .... NO excuses ...

WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE.

WE ARE SOUTHAMPTON. COYR.

We've got the points advantage but their form is immense.
I dont think they will keep going as they are. They have five very hard games on the trot, if they come through them unscathed we will have to keep looking over our shoulder.

If we can avoid defeat tonight and take 3pts on Sat against Donny, we enter a defining week in good shape. Next week WHam play their game in hand (Peterbro away on Tues) and then they host Reading on Saturday which means they drop either 3 or 4 points between them that day.
I guess the point is that if we hold our own form (unbeaten in 10 with 6 wins 4 draws is a decent headline but in fact we've won 6 and drawn 2 of the last 8 which is virtually Reading's form), the others will drop points in March. So I would take 5 points out of 9 on the basis that Reading will get 4/9 and WHam will get 6/12. We'd then go into April with each of us having 6 games left with us on 77, Reading 74, WHam 73. We wouldn't be evens then we'd be very odds on.

Us London Saints are on the 1.35 from Kings Cross getting to Hull about 4. Once we've chucked our bags in the Travel Lodge we'll see you all in the Three Crowns. Going to check out the new bar on KX station first. It opened yesterday and looks ok. Can we PLEASE play with someone out wide tonight. Now that we do leave someone up at corners my only winge is our lack of width. Lets start with either Steeeeve or Jason.See you later in the Three Crowns COYR

A good friend of mine who is a Reading season tick holder and goes to away games says Reading aren't even playing good football but are winning games. I was surprised as I thought their form would have dictated they are playing good football. But no. apparently although they're doing well the football isn't pretty and he's worried coming up against someone good (Wham & Saints) will show their true position.
