I think old 'arry at Southampton is living a bit of a dream. He has tentatively linked himself to the Eastwood Appreciation Army (EAR) but should remain loyal to the Comedy Redknapp's Angling Party (CRAP). He's fishing without bait. How times change. Once I would have believed that the Saints would have been able to lure the likes of Eastwood from a club like ours but now, and its only my opinion, it would take a bigger club than that. Southampton scrapped, often against the odds, to stay in the top flight and when they finally succumbed to relegation many felt it was long overdue. Equally I feel it will be a long and winding road before they ever get back into the Premier$hite. Eastwood does not need to leave for a fellow Championship club (optimism) and I am sure that when the time is right he will make his mark at a substatially bigger club than Southampton. Freddy is young, gifted and full of potential. The right club can pay the right price and Freddy can make the right move. No true Blues supporter would want to hold him back, not beyond the summer anyway, and we would all love to see him doing his stuff at the top.
