Lambert: Spurs not seen the best of Saints

Rickie Lambert believes Spurs will see a different Saints side tomorrow to the one they beat at St Mary’s earlier in the season.

Tottenham triumphed 3-2 shortly before Christmas, in a match where Mauricio Pochettino’s men were far from their best.

But Saints head to White Hart Lane in good form, having won their last two games, and Lambert is confident of extending that streak.

“We’re playing well at the minute, we’ve gone on a little run, which we were desperate for, and I think you’ll see a different Southampton this time,” he said.

“I don’t think we were at our best when they played us at our place, and we were very disappointed with it, so we’re looking forward to trying to rectify that.”

Saints head into the weekend in eighth position in the Premier League, with a chance of still improving on that this season.

Immediately ahead of them is Manchester United, who have three more points and have played a game less.

Everton, in sixth, a position that represents the last Europa League spot, are six clear, with two matches in hand on Saints.

Then there is Spurs, in fifth, who are eight points above Pochettino’s side, having played the same number of fixtures.

Lambert doesn’t expect to be able to overhaul all three of those teams, but he believes it is possible for Saints to get past one, or even two, of them.

“It’s not too far off. I don’t want to start saying we’re aiming for fifth, because I think that might be a little bit too out of our reach, but I think seventh, maybe sixth, if we can finish in one of them positions that would be unbelievable,” said the striker, who netted his ninth league goal of the campaign with a strike in last weekend’s 4-2 win over Norwich.

“I think if we finish eighth that’s a good season, but because of where we are now we’re going to try and push for them next positions now, and if we get seventh then we’ll try and push for sixth.”

Saints will slip to ninth in the table this afternoon, if Newcastle win their home game against Crystal Palace.

Rickie , if we finish top ten this season that would be brlliant as far as i'm concearned. In the past it is the second season in the Premier league that is the toughest and you boys have done us proud. You have not only saved our club from relegation but, here you are talking about aiming for 7th or 8th place in the best league in the world, ( quick love pass me the oxygen mask ). Begining of the season 4th from bottom would of been fine in my book so, if we don't win another game this season THANK YOU for what you and the boy's have done allready.
STID. and 3 points would be very nice tomorrow so don't read this and take your foot off the gas!!!!

A couple of more goals will seal his seat to Rio.
His all round play-making has already got him on, ahead of D.Onkey.

Playing in Europe, along with a FA cup winners medal may be the last things on Rickies' "TO DO" list before he retires.
Not sure this is achievable for Saints at this time or if it is even practical.
FA cup should have been this year.
Euro league or Europa cup are for the future IMO.
Look whats happened to Spurs.
(Spurs bought just about every player that had 2 legs before the season, most of them are now injured.)
Good for us maybe tomorrow.

We outplayed them up there last season but couldn't score. Guly had a blinder (oh yes he did!) then got injured, went off and Bale turned inside Luke and won the game with a moment of world class magic (made in Saints' academy).

If we play that well this season and are clinical we can get 3 points.

Meanwhile, Gordon, pleeeeeeeeez! I don't go in for knocking posters for grammatical errors, and we all misspell words, but journalists really should know better.

'Immediately ahead of them is Manchester United, who have three more points and have played a game LESS.'

LESS? When you can count the noun, use FEWER. For example: 'There were ten glasses of water, now there are nine because I have just emptied one of the glass of water. So, now there is less water and fewer glasses of water.'

You done bad there, Gordon. Journalism ain't not what it were when we was kids, izzit?

Anyway, less or fewer, let's just reduce the gap between us and those above and we'll all be happy.

Hi RS, actually, no. I honestly cut the end off of 'glasses' to see if anyone was paying attention. That's why I chose a word I had written correctly just before and just afterwards. Glad you were paying attention.

I don't suppose you're going to be at the Etihad. Warrens will be there (and Seed and Bill). Could be an educational weekend :)

I understand that qualifying for the Europa league could have been achieved by winning the cup.
Pochie made it quite clear that he had no interest in doing so.
Very negative approach.
I feel we had it in our hands this year and I bet Richie felt it too.
May have been his last chance.

His all round play-making has already got him on, ahead of D.Onkey.

Playing in Europe, along with a FA cup winners medal may be the last things on Rickies' "TO DO" list before he retires.
Not sure this is achievable for Saints at this time or if it is even practical.
FA cup should have been this year.
Euro league or Europa cup are for the future IMO.
Look whats happened to Spurs.
(Spurs bought just about every player that had 2 legs before the season, most of them are now injured.)
Good for us maybe tomorrow.

Ah, but if we had won the FA Cup this year, then next season would have been the start our European future. I'm a bit confused about what you want to say.
I understand that qualifying for the Europa league could have been achieved by winning the cup.
Pochie made it quite clear that he had no interest in doing so.
Very negative approach.
I feel we had it in our hands this year and I bet Richie felt it too.
May have been his last chance.
What were Poch precise words about not winning the FA Cup? It's Rickie not Richie.
Thank you for your input.
Look up the word "Pedantic".
Correct spelling I hope.

We outplayed them up there last season but couldn't score. Guly had a blinder (oh yes he did!) then got injured, went off and Bale turned inside Luke and won the game with a moment of world class magic (made in Saints' academy).

If we play that well this season and are clinical we can get 3 points.

Meanwhile, Gordon, pleeeeeeeeez! I don't go in for knocking posters for grammatical errors, and we all misspell words, but journalists really should know better.

'Immediately ahead of them is Manchester United, who have three more points and have played a game LESS.'

LESS? When you can count the noun, use FEWER. For example: 'There were ten glasses of water, now there are nine because I have just emptied one of the glass of water. So, now there is less water and fewer glasses of water.'

You done bad there, Gordon. Journalism ain't not what it were when we was kids, izzit?

Anyway, less or fewer, let's just reduce the gap between us and those above and we'll all be happy.
Erm... "I have emptied one of the glass of water".

Anyone trying to correct another's grammar is fated to make a grammar or spelling mistake. I'm with you though. Journalist should held to a higher standard.

*Look it up. I had to.
Thanks for that, one thing about this site is that you can learn something new every day. the answer is to proof read every time before hitting the submit button. However it is obvious, that the brain can tell you it is correct even when it isn't, I don't know why that is, also there are times when letters vanish after you have typed them, I can't fathom that one out either. Also we are not all blessed with the ability to be word perfect, I blame it on Mrs Thatchers Incomprehensible Schools policy, and fading grey cells, what is your excuse?
