Lambert Could Get Premier League Lifeline
Tuesday, 26th Sep 2017 20:37
Rickie Lambert could be heading back to the Premier League according to media reports, Arron Sanders takes a look at the news.
According to a report today from the Independent, new Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is considering an approach for the former Saints hero Rickie Lambert following news of an injury to his first choice striker Christian Benteke.
Having worked with the veteran 35 year old during his time as England manager, Hodgson is eager to bring in some cover in his attacking area of the Eagles squad and with his options limited due to the transfer window being closed Lambert has emerged as his best option available.
The Liverpudlian has not had the best of fortunes since leaving St Mary's with spells at boy hood club Liverpool, West Brom and Cardiff not going to plan for the 35 year old former Southampton and Bristol Rovers goal machine.
Hopefully Lambert and Palace can get a deal done and he can have one last run in the big time, and he gets back amongst the goals (just not against Saints please Rickie).
The report states that Palace are confident of tying up a deal within the next couple of weeks and I for one hope it all works out for the big man.

A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
