Saints stars set for Claret and Blue reunion

THREE Saints stars could be set for a Claret and Blue reunion next season.

Burnley clinched automatic promotion back to the top flight for the first time since 2010 when beating Wigan 2-0 at Turf Moor yesterday.

The last time the club were in the Premier League, in 2009/10, current Saints Jack Cork and Danny Fox played for them.

A third Saint, Jay Rodriguez, was at Turf Moor that season but didn’t appear in a single league game.

Burnlet’s top scorer this season is 25-goal Southampton-born Danny Ings, who started his career in the Tyro League with Netley Abbey prior to joining Bournemouth.

Lymington-born Sam Vokes, another ex-Cherries striker, has 22 goals but has not played since the end of last month due to injury.

Both Ings and Vokes were on target when Burnley were beaten 4-3 in an FA Cup third round tie at St Mary’s in early January. Clarets boss Sean Dyche claimed his fifth taste of promotion was the sweetest yet.

As a player Dyche was promoted four times with the likes of Chesterfield, Bristol City, Millwall and Northampton.

Dyche said: “It feels marvellous and feels like the destination at the end of a long journey: an impressive journey from a group of people who are totally motivated and committed to stand the test of what a season is.

“I was promoted four times as a player and I know what it feels likes and what it takes as a player but doing it as a manager is an incredible feeling.

“What we have done is historic. The challenges of the Championship are getting harder and harder because clubs that get relegated are getting richer.

“So to do it automatically is the thing that is getting harder. To do it automatically, having amassed the points we have, with a low budget, and using 22 players is incredible. “I don’t think those markers will be hit again. It is a marker in history.”

Good for them. On a rather selfish note, I do like north-west teams to get promoted as it makes it easier for me to see more Saints matches. So come on Wigan too! I enjoyed the visit to their ground last season - they cater really well for away supporters.

Come o Baz Fox was good for us in the championship and when you here our current stars talking about him it gives you a better idea of what he has done for them. Lalla still says he is his best friend and Luke admits that Fox helped him become a better player despite knowing he would replace him.

No! he's still a Saints player, he's only on loan at Forest.
Still they might want to buy him with any luck.

Shall we post that on the Man Utd / Chelsea boards as a "come and get Luke & Adam" message to them?

Or should we act with the same respect that we would like from clubs who are 'bigger' than us, who we get angry with for thinking they have a divine right to any players they want?

Or shall we just meekly accept that the world is run by money, that loyalty, pride, and the sense of being a band of brothers no longer means f-all, and behave like just another bunch of knuts ....

I know I am a bit picky, but really a player whose name has only four letters in it should be spelt right surely? There is no 'e' in Ings, we have an unwritten rule, that if the fans can't spell it we shouldn't sign it! Of course this goes back to Jon Otsemobor, people couldn't spell his first name let alone his surname!
