Some interesting ones, Lambert not only scores goals for Southampton but sets a lot up as well. No wonder Snodgrass looked knackered in the last few weeks of the season, missing only 2 out of 59 games.

So you want Lambert to partner Becchio then Daz

I wanted Lambert all last season. I thought he was the best striker in the division and this season with Southampton has just confirmed that.
erni
We could very easily poach Lambert now - and he would need a mate so might as well grab Lee Barnard to keep him company while we're at it

I asked my friend how he thinks Cameron will do. He reckons they'll beat Denmark and Japan, but might lose to Holland.Typical thick L666ds fan!!!
