My 2000th FMScout post
When I think about FMScout, what do I think about? I think about chat, about SotM, I think about FM (of course) and I think about the people. I think about the manager stories. But most of all I think about Page 8 of the stories. And why? Because until now, for one month, this has been there. The main thing I think about is Kammy.
Chris Kamara - Saviour of the Saints is what FMScout means to me. And after reaching 100 replies in my new Millwall story despite not even starting the season, I admit that I have never really cared about a story as much as I have for this one. And so I have decided that I will return to this one. Kammy is back!
My Millwall story will be put on hold. It may still be updated once in a whie, and I may return to it, but for now, this is it.
So, lets recap on what's happened so far. Kammy was unfortunately made redundant from Sky as the company shockingly went bankrupt. He found work with an old friend, Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson, who offered him the manager's job. After more than a decade away from the dugout, how would Kamara fare? Very well it turned out.
Kammy led Boro to a fantastic promotion, winning the Championship against all the odds, and after a solid start to the Premier League Season, Kamara got an offer, from Fulham F.C. The new manager had an instant impact on Fulham's fortunes, but after 2 poor months, Kamara was out, and Fulham were looking like relegation certanties.
He was only gone for 2 weeks. Southampton were next to give Kammy a contract, which he accepted. He was promised £40m to spend if the club won promotion, but it looked unlikely. The club was stuck in mid table having just sacked Tony Mowbray, and Kammy was the one to change it around. Leading the Saints to the playoffs, Kamara was a hero. And never more so after an emphatic aggregate win over Wolves and a 1-0 defeat of Tranmere Rovers in the playoffs. Saints were up.
They were more than up. They were FLYING! Kamara led them to the top of the table, and this is where we leave it for now.
