southampton football club - soccer club in English Premier LeagueNBC Sports broadcasted a documentary about Southampton Football Club, which has been the surprise of the Barclay’s Premier League in England, now fourth in the table.  A veritable minnow of English Football, compared to the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, Southampton made a name for itself as a club committed to developing home-grown players.  And you may have heard of some of the players to come out of Southampton, like Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers. For the Black Oaks, as a new club in a hotbed for soccer in California, we can take some inspiration from Southampton. ENJOY!
