    Hodgson on Lambert on SSN, not his most auspicious factually correct interview...

    "One of the things that's impressed me about him, is that this is a man that has come up the hard way, he's ploughed a very difficult furrow starting in non-League. I first came across him at Bristol Rovers when I was at Fulham about 5/6 years ago now. He played very well against us in fact I ever remember discussing him as a potential transfer target, but then of course the big question here is 'how can a guy in League One become a success in the Premier League'?

    Then of course he moved to a Championship side* and the question was asked, 'well, he's only a League One player can he play in the Championship', he helped Southampton win it*, and then the next question would be 'can he play in the Premiership*' and he scores 15 goals.

    So, I think if a man has really worked hard to prove his worth over the years it's Rickie Lambert, and I think he fully deserves his call up, at a time of course when a couple of players that might have got a nod in front of him, Daniel Sturridge and Andy Carroll, are not available".


    Also worth noting that he didn't score against Fulham in either of 2008's FA Cup matches with Bristol Rovers, though Rovers did win on penalties.
    *factual inaccuracy.

    I remember watching that the evening it broke. A rovers fan came on here to say he'd heard, and it spiraled from there.

    I remember coming home for lunch on the Monday and i think Tik-Taks was breaking it? Went back to work buzzing....I think he just felt the right signing at the right time for so many reasons, and boy did it pay off.

    Overdue, he's the best English CF around at the moment IMO.

    England look seriously threadbare though.

    Some of those selections are real head scratchers.

    Nick Collins on SSN
    "Wonderful story, 31 years old, triumphant season with Southampton last year", blah blah, reinterpreted Hodgson's interview above as "chose him because every time he's gone up a level he's coped".

    How long until one of the lesser national papers runs with the fact he could be playing for New Zealand......

    Great news for Rickie - hope they persevere with him and he's not a 20 minute flop. His game is much more than goalscoring.

  13. Default

    Interesting make up of the squad - out-players only.....

    Arsenal x3
    Chelsea x2
    Everton x2
    Liverpool x2
    Man City x1
    Man Utd x8
    Saints x1
    Spurs x2

    Who has he come in for. Trott, or one of the bowlers?

    Hold on a minute. Haven't we already agreed that these International friendlies next week are a bad thing?

    Pleased as punch for Rickie.

    Thoroughly deserved call-up and long overdue!

    As a side note, Shaw has been called up to the England U21s as well.

    Yup, most of them involve travelling and having to try though. This is Scotland at Wembley.

    About bloody time too.

    I hope we win 3-0 with Rickie scoring 2 and 1 assist.

    And showing up Rooney into the bargain, so that the papers are come up with stupid excuses for this paradox.

    Good on ya, Rickster, show then waht you can do.

    No I am genuinely happy for the guy, I did say in the latest round of threads on the subject if he was ever to get a call up it would be now. You know my thoughts on his inclusion etc so Im not going to comment, plus in this instance there was nobody else.

    Dissapointed Cork didnt get the nod mind.

    But anyway, V well done Rickie

    So pleased for him. I think those of us who've watched him score week in, week out since that first season in League 1 are feeling a sense of pride right now.

    Cannot think of a more deserving call up. Congratulations and well done to Rickie. He should start!

    @jordansibley: His England call up isn't the only bit of good news Rickie has had today, his partner gave birth to daughter Bella Rose @ 4.30 this morning!

    Completes the fairy story so richly deserved.


    Unfortunate choice of name. I always think people named Bella are going to be fatties. Probably Bella Emberg's doing.

    Wow, just wow.

    This has actually brought a tear to my eye, something I never thought would happen.

    Congratulations on both great bits of news to Rickie.

    Think this could mean an early trip down the pub for the Dubai Saints Massive on Wednesday!

    Absolutely delighted for him, and it'll be a huge motivator for him this season knowing he can go to the World Cup if he keeps scoring.

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke.

    There are so many wnkrs playing pl football that it makes a refreshing change for an all round good guy to gain the success he deserves.

    He never gave up when he was knocked back, kept improving, got his head down to be the best he could and I am chuffed to bits for him.

    Well done Rickie you deserve it.

    'The9"'s views and reaction to Lambert is seriously weird for a Saints fan. Once saw him post that he was "ambivalent" towards him

    Really glad for Lambert even though I believe its only a one-time thing. I just hope that he gets a decent amount of playing time.

    Fantastic to see the recognition for Rickie (and SFC). All he has to do now is notch a couple!

    Fantastic news. How he has been overlooked for so long is absurd. Top player, great role model, all round lovely chap. Hope he fills his boots against the sweaty socks.

    Pleased that hes got the recognition we all know he deserves, but we also all know its a PR stunt to deflect negative attention away from Woy and the FA. Woy went on record and said Rickie is the wrong type of player for the system he wants to play. Also he wouldnt be there if Andy Carroll was fit.

    I doubt he'll get on the pitch.

    Picking a player half the country has never heard of is a effing sh ite publicity stunt.

    Good job it isn't one, isn't it?
