Southampton Football Club - on the March to the Arch
Monday, 10 August 2009
Good work Pards. The Saints boss has wasted no time in adding a proven goal scorer to the ranks, with Bristol Rovers striker Ricky Lambert joining today. The 27 year old (right) was joint top scorer in League One last year with 29 goals and got off the mark this season on Saturday. But a deal was wrapped up today for a fee that could rise to £1m - but if he can keep on banging in the goals it looks like money well spent.
I have supported Saints for as long as I have known and was a season ticket holder (Kingsland) before moving up north to university. I have witnessed the changing fortunes of the club at first hand: from the good old Dell days of Le Tissier, Dodd and Benali to the (for us) glory days of the early noughties; from the failed Dutch Revolution in the Championship to our present Swiss revival in League One. I have also written for The Southern Daily Echo and The Pink and write a weekly football blog for the brilliant Football Filter website. I hope you enjoy my views on Saints, football and life in general. Comments appreciated.
