Southampton boss Chris Kamara was in a playful mood before his side faced Fulham, saying that he 'wants revenge' on his former club.
Kamara - 'I want revenge!'
Kamara took charge at Fulham last season but only managed three months in the hotseat, led out after a string of poor results.
Fulham did benefit from Kamara's dealings however, signing Havard Nordtveit, Javi Garcia, and David Ospina, with both Garcia and Ospina supposed to play in the Southampton match tomorrow. Kamara admitted that his former club will pose a big threat to Southampton, as they look to keep on top of the table.
Kamara is hopeful that his side will come off with a victory against the Cottagers, but he showed respect towards the opposition, seemingly knowing that they would cause problems. Asked whether he was out for revenge, Kamara replied, switching constantly from a serious and a playful mood, "Certainly I am! Haha, I think we want to beat them obviously, why wouldn't we? The fact that I was at Fulham before here, is irrelevant. All we want in every game is to win,
so we want to win this one as much as we'd want to beat, I don't know, Barnsley, or Swansea, or even a random club, like, err, someone crap like, Portsmouth or Eastleigh. Haha!"
Kamara has been absent for some of the Saints' recent training sessions, citing a trip to the Abruzzo to watch Castel di Sangro and a random decision to turn into a rich American criminal
(that was the twist in that btw) and buy Millwall. However, he insists he is fully focused on the task ahead.
"The only thing in my mind is the Fulham game, because we have to look forward to it, and those other things, we can only look back on. We cannot change that, so although hindsight is a very wonderful thing, it's also rather useless. Thank you."

A very poor game in all honesty. We barely created any chances, and although both sides hit the post once, neither did they. Changes would have to be made at every point really, but nothing had any affect, and Fulham held firm. A bore draw.
Where are we?
Despite our concerns, Arsenal did not manage to take advantage of our slip ups, drawing at home to Liverpool with a last minute belter from Cheick Tiote rescuing a point for the visitors. Blackburn, our fellow over-acheivers, slip up, and are down to 4th. West Brom powered past Reading up to 8th after a 4-0 win over Burnley.
