    A good win, and now for the next part of our journey to the Premier league a tricky trip to Blackpool. The pitch up there is very sandy and uneven. It will be a tight game. Blackpool score alot of goals but have a defence the Southampton Bus should drive through.

    I was thinking back to when we got promotion back in 1978 and wondered which of those players would have made it into the present squad. Williams, Holmes,Boyer, Peach and Baker. A few great players from the past. Its One more step to the Premier league we go from the old things to the new keep me travelling along with the Saints to the Promised land.
    Is this about right?

    Williams v Lallana
    Holmes v Hammond
    Boyer v Lambert
    Peach v Fox
    Baker v Cork
    OK, Stevie Williams beats Lallana, Holmes thrashes Hammond, Lambert kills Boyer, Peach for penalties alone beats Fox, Baker beats Cork. I'm always going to say that because Baker used to manage my football team, Locks Heath Dynamoes when I was a kid - used to take me to games in his Vauxhall Astra, how times change! late 80s he was still playing then too.
    Boyer and Lambert. I'd like that.
    True, when I was very young Boyer was my favourite player, used to pretend I was him in the playground!
    My first season he was a great provider to Ted McDougall. When Ted left Boyer started scoring for fun. I seem to remember he was league top scorer one year but hardly scored away from the Dell. Not sure, it's suddenly a long time ago!"

Adkins: We've had a very good week

First published in Saints News

NIGEL Adkins hailed a great week for Saints, as the club’s hopes of a Premier League return further improved.

A 2-0 win over Doncaster at St Mary’s strengthened their grip at the top of the Championship, crucially moving them nine points clear of third-placed West Ham.

Saints have now won four straight and are unbeaten in 12 league matches.

With just seven games left in their season, it is increasingly hard to imagine that the club won’t go up automatically.

But, unsurprisingly, Adkins refused to get too excited after watching Billy Sharp strike twice against his former side.

“There are seven games to go,” he said. “We’ve just had a very good week.

“We’ve scored two good goals today and three good wins in the week.

“What we’ll do is recover ourselves and get ready for the next one.”

The Saints boss also revealed that Rickie Lambert was withdrawn with a pelvic injury early in the second half, but insisted the striker would be fit to face Blackpool away next Saturday.
