Rickie Lambert, Southampton Goal Machine!

Sam, Ben and I went to see Southampton at Aston Villa today.

We won a relegation battle by 1 goal to nil, and our goal was a hotly disputed penalty. Having seen it on Match of the Day, I would be aggrieved if I was an Aston Villa fan, but I'm not, so I will take the penalty, the goal and the three points.

Here is a shot taken on my P+S from about 120 metres away of the penalty being tucked away by Rickie Lambert, who has scored 29 out of 29 penalties for us in 3 seasons!

It was good to catch up with the Northern Saints fan club in a very unsalubrious pub before the game, and see my mate Pete that I have been going to games with for nearly 20 years now.

Villa Park is a proper football ground, and I always enjoy watching football there.
Not bad for a p & s! Sounds like a great game (if you are a Southampton fan), how nice to have a lads day out with your sons.....

Nice action shot, and the colors of the jerseys against the green is very strong.
