...and stayed on for a season or more? Just been asked this in the office (as a way of saying "well, what do you expect?")

 

Assuming AS and LS are off this summer, then only MLT and JRod I can think of (unless someone takes a punt on an injured Jay)

 

Anyone else? Big no on Crouch, Beatts and Bridge.

Armstrong looks to have stilll been at Boro when he first got called up but Mark Wright played for Saints for about 3 years after getting called up; Jeez what a golden age that was, no-one wanted to leave unless they had a bust up with Lawrie Mac.

Today's younger supporters just don't know how good we were and why some of us just can't wait until we're that good again.

We were nearly there, fear it's all gone tits up now though.

Aye, happy days.

 

Don’t Saints hold the record for fielding the most England captains – past, present and future – in the same team? Six, I think it was.

 

I can’t see that ever happening again.

Mike Channon played on & off for England for several years before signing for Man City

 

 

well........as it happens Mick played 45 times for England and scored 21 goals (whilst with Saints) and only once after his move to Man.City (June 1977).

That was effectively the end of his International career.

Did David Armstrong make his first England appearance whilst at Saints?

 

Armstrong (3 caps) played ONCE for Middlesboro before moving ..and was capped twice more when with Saints (1982-84), although neutrals might say that he was worth more than that in his prime.

 

(Rather like Jimmy Melia before him) , David Armstrong was prematurely bald in his early twenties and tended to look much older than his years.

 

Ironic that nowadays shaven-headed players are not uncommon at all - giving rise to the " tough-look".
