Now that was a friendly! I wish all friendlies England play were as passionate as last night’s encounter against Scotland – and as a Saints fan who knows how good Rickie Lambert is I don’t mind admitting I shot up off the sofa and let out a shriekish cheer when his bullet header thundered in to win the match for the three lions! At last an England game to savour, it’s been a while.
St Marys Stadium at the weekend during a particularly poor performance against Harry Redknapp’s QPR. Probably the worst Saints performance I’ve seen for a year or so…… Samba had Saints goal machine Lambert well and truly covered for most of the game and I think that was probably the key battle. Hope the weekend wasn’t a sign of things to come…..
