Lambert hopes Hodgson was impressed by Saints' star showing

Basingstoke Gazette: Rickie Lambert Rickie Lambert

Rickie Lambert hopes that Saints’ England contingent have enhanced their World Cup prospects after impressing in front of Roy Hodgson at Fulham.

The national team manager was in the stands at Craven Cottage on Saturday, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side stormed to an impressive 3-0 victory.

Lambert, Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez, who have all been handed their international debuts this season, each scored in the win, while there were important contributions from full-backs Luke Shaw and Nathaniel Clyne, who have also been on Hodgson’s radar.

The next few months will go a long way to determining how many Saints players earn a place in the squad for Brazil, but Lambert was pleased that they were all able to play a significant role in the club’s latest win, with Hodgson looking on.

“I thought the whole team played well,” said the striker, who has now scored ten goals this season.

“It’s nice that the England manager was watching our game, and we’ve managed to score and win 3-0, and not concede, so everyone on show, on the English side, couldn’t be prouder of the performance, and hopefully he’s seen that.”

While Lambert has this season been elevated into the national set-up, he has also faced the first serious challenge to his status as Saints’ number-one striker – a title he has undisputedly held since arriving on the south coast in 2009.

However, the departure of club-record signing Dani Osvaldo, on loan to Juventus, removes any doubt over who is first choice to lead the line for the remainder of the campaign.

Lambert, though, says he does not think his situation has changed as a result of the Italian international’s exit.

“I’ve always said when I get my chance I’ll try and do well for Southampton, and I think I’ve played most of the games this season anyway, so I don’t think anything’s going to really change there,” he said.

“I’ll just concentrate on the next game now.”

Lambert’s goal at Fulham, where he converted a low cross from Clyne, marked his 100th league strike for the club.

The forward described it as a “very special” moment to reach such a milestone.

However, it was a mark he would not have passed had he been sold to West Ham last month.

Lambert was heavily linked with a transfer to Upton Park during the January window, but a move did not materialise.

The 31-year-old said he has moved on from the matter and remains fully focused on continuing to help Saints’ cause.

“I did know about West Ham, but I don’t want to go into detail about it,” he said.

“I just want to concentrate, as I always have, on doing well for Southampton.”

The clearest evidence yet the NC came close to selling SRL: “I did know about West Ham, but I don’t want to go into detail about it,” he said.

Nicola was a businessman. Of course he was readying a sale with the prices Big Sam was prepared to pay. To those of you who poo-pooed that yesterday on the threads, I'm surprised at your naïveté.

Glad Rickie stayed.

Nobody wants Rickie to leave including himself and it's made easier by Southampton not having to sell to balance the books, without any doubt if he leaves and when his playing days are finished where ever he is he will definitely go down in the Clubs history book as a hero never to be forgotten.

Rickie is Roy of the Rovers comic for the history of his career a wonderful story, personally I think Adams comments after the Fulham game is a hint to the Club please do not ever sell him, his position playing a little deeper is paying off, how many times have we seen him create that beautiful pass over the heads of the opposition perfectly placed for for either Adam and Jay it's a pleasure to watch, Rickie loves the Club and in my opinion there's only one person who should decide that Rickie is surplus and that is in Adams words and we all agree one of the best Managers in the world Mauricio Potchettino, if he doesn't know nobody does COYR

If he plays as well as he did at Fulham from now until the end of the season and can weigh in with at least a 10-12 goals tally it will be hard not to pick him.
I think Lallana is already on he plane and if Rodriguez can keep scoring there's a possibility he could go as well.
If Shaw and Clyne can finish the season strongly and keep injury free they will give Roy a selection headache as well.
Not forgetting a certain Jack Cork who for me has been one of the most consistent midfielders this season since coming back into the side.
How fantastic would it be if all six end up going !!

Yeah--But are the players impressed by Woy???
Look how Mourinho masterminded a win yesterday. Tactically Woy is years behind the likes of Jose and Pepe.


AND if all 3 (4) Saints go to Brasil AND we qualify for the Europa league...quite frankly next season will be a bad one, just look at what has happened to Newcastle and Swansea.(who have already had to play 10 more games than most his season)

A challenge!!

I agree about dropping Lampard, not Cole though

At some point in the lead up to the World Cup either Roy or parts of the media will start trying to say that we stand a chance of winning it. The usual bumf will appear. My view is that if we stick with the so called "first choice" players we might get out of the group but probably won't.

If however Roy takes a punt - and he would be brave to do this - he could make some sensational changes and it could pay off. But there is so much pressure to pick long standing names. Imagine if he picked our foursome of Shaw/Lambert/Lallana
/Rodriguez.... and we went out at the group stage. He would be sacked and these boys reputations would be tarnished. They haven't had enough international experience and are unlilkely to get it unless Roy has a clear policy to start with fresh faces. His recent selections have been as a result of injuries, not an enlightened approach.

So who would be dropped to make way for our boys?
Rooney is a shoe in, Sturridge probably is too, and Welbeck (sad but true). Who would put money on Lampard and Gerard not going? Cole too, although I think he justifies his place for now. Its also laughable in my opinion that after a couple of games the press are also pushing for a return for Carrol !! Sheesh what drugs are they on?

I think therefore that Adam will get his chance but that will be it for now. The next breakthrough will be Shaw, but that will be after the World Cup.. and I think that Rickie and Jay will only get a chance if there's a massive injury crisis.

Reality check people... but lets face it our boys do a brilliant job for us and quite honestly that's all I care about. I think it was Confucious who once said he stopped supporting England when he found out that Portsmouth was in it. I can see his point and my enthusiasm has wained a lot but as somebody who actually saw us win the world cup in '66 (on TV) I sometimes dream it might happen again .. .but it won't be this time round. So why not use this as the fresh start, clear the decks and send out a new squad, based on future talent potential rather than a bunch of old boys who have had their chance on the big stage before and blown it.

It's not going ot happen is it?

It's all about a measured approach, Roy's not stupid and needs to cover his back. However, I see Leighton Baynes as 1st choice left back now so why take Cole who's well over 30 and will not play at another World Cup. There has to be a succession plan there somewhere.

I have a feeling that he might take Jay instead of Rickie as he'll provide a striking and attacking midfield option all in one. His debut wasn't very impressive but his form since then has been outstanding. Roy must have had a hell of a view of that 3rd goal against Fulham.

There is no hope of us winning the world cup in Brazil. Four years hence is a different matter. What is to be served by giving the tail end of the old guard a final hurrah in Brazil? Nothing. Pick the youngsters now giving them vital experience and keep them together as a unit for four years.

Word is that Roy is seriously considering taking advantage of the almost unprecedented opportunity to field four English players from a successful Prem team who are a proven potent force and used to playing with each other week in week out.

This comes from Mrs Hodkinson the FA switchboard operator who is in regular direct contact with Mrs Wilson.

I can't see Roy doing anything too shocking unfortunately because he is a coward.

I agree that there's no real point in taking Cole - he doesn't have much left in the tank IMO and has even struggled to get in the Chelsea team recently. I'd take Baines as first choice and Luke for the experience.

Right back is a real weakness for England defensively - Walker and Johnson are often liabilities defensively so I wouldn't take both. Fine have one of them as first choice if you must (don't rock the boat Roy!), but you need someone as back-up who can actually defend (Clyne or Chambers anyone?!)

I can see two of three being picked for the squad from AL, JR, and RL, not sure who though. My guess would be RL (as a 'different option' or 'target man' in Roy's eyes) and AL because the media is starting to back him as deserving.

This World Cup might come just a season too soon for J-Rod because the media don't seem to have jumped on his bandwagon just yet, plus he has a lot of competition from genuine wide players such as the Ox and, God forbid, Adam Johnson (not my view, but likely Roy's).

Yesterday's Echo quotes MP saying " Rickie Lambert is very important for Southampton and Southampton is also very important for Rickie Lambert ", Adam Lallana as saying " He ( RL) means everything to this football cub. He is our talisman" and Rickie himself saying "It has been the best four and a half years of my life ........I have absolutely loved it." Today's Echo quotes Osvaldo's coach as saying Dani was desperate to go to Juventus. So it would seem everyone's a winner ! Someone on here last week jokingly suggested Fonte may have taken one on behalf of the team, could it be that Osvaldo gave one for the team ? I only wonder as someone else on here said that after the match following the fracas the only photo Osvaldo retweeted was the one of Fontes goal.So Osvaldo Saint or sinner ? Since Cortese was the one who wanted to sell Rickie I ask the same of him Saint or sinner ?

I think am not alone in thinking it may have been best for all to have cashed in on Ricky last month, NC going and Dani loosing it put the stoppers on it.

If we had been offered £7M for Ricky it would have been tough to turn down but probably the most Saints would have got for him.

But we can debate that in the Pub before the Palace Game....
