Striker Rickie Lambert has said that nobody inside the Saints camp are panicking given it’s now six games without a victory for us.

The frustration to not take something from today’s match was evident with Lambert, but it remains only our second loss of the season on home soil and despite that frustration Rickie said there was every faith that we would again bounce back from this disappointment and get ourselves back on track.

Speaking to saintsfc following the game Lambert said it was vitally important that we got ourselves back to winning ways as soon as possible, but we mustn’t lose faith in what we are doing and we will be stronger moving forward owing to points like this as a team because how you come through spells can be just as important as coming out the other side.

‘We will carry on believing in what we’re doing, carry on working hard and stick together, that’s what we’ll do and if anything we’ll come out of it stronger. If you believe in what you’re doing then yes, it’s easier. Whereas, if you start questioning what you’re doing it’s not as easy, but we’re all under the same belief that we can get our of this and we can come out stronger.’

It was a bit of a mixed day for Lambert really, as despite losing the match, on a personal level he scored for the first time in six games as well to break his own duck on the field which should bode well for him going forward as well and it was a good way to mark his 200th start for Southampton, but he can’t allow himself to get too carried away given the result and the performance we put in.

‘Even though the results haven’t been there I think performances have generally been of a good standard, today was not of the standard that we’ve been used to, so we’ll discuss it and see where we can improve.’

  • Its a while since Ive been this angry over a Saints performance they were rubbish today, bar two or three, kept giving the damn ball away slow and I have issues. The first is that for ffs why are Fox Hooiveld and Gazaniga getting picked? they are just not up to the task. Ok we dont have replacements but whatc makes me fume is that MoPo is on record as saying we dont need to go into the transfer market. Excuse me, but we fans are not f blind,its more than obvious who is letting the team down. Stop kidding yourself MoPo.Two from 18 is relegation form , be warned. My other issue and this one makes my blood boil – why the frigging hell isnt Ramirez getting a game? 12M of talent and we caan afford not to play him? He is , in case you have all forgotten , the kind of player who can come up with something special just when you need it, thats what he was bought for. And if hes lucky he gets on the bench. its criminal. my guess because I live in a latin couhntry is that the two have had a bust up, and being what theyare neither is prepared to give an inch and they are not talking. Cortese needs to gt MoPo and Ramirez into his office and remind of the facts of life. They need to behave like men not squabbling schoolboys. MoPo s job is to manage not get into fights with players. From what I understand Cortese is getting more than slightly *****ed off with the situation, and if I were those two, I would take the initiative and prevent having to go into Cortese ss office in the first place and avoid having blood spilt on the floor. merry xmas peeps
