Rickie Lambert says Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga doesn't need to apologise for his error in 1-1 draw with Norwich

Rickie Lambert

Paulo Gazzaniga

First published in Sport

Saints striker Rickie Lambert said there was no need for goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga to apologise to his teammates following his blunder against Norwich.

Gazzaniga allowed a tame free-kick from Robert Snodgrass to sneak by him at the near post last night, handing the Canaries a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.

Lambert, who had given the home side the lead, revealed that the 20-year-old cut a dejected figure in the dressing room after the match.

“He didn’t have to apologise to us,” said Lambert. “You could see he was disappointed.

“He has done really well the last few weeks and it was a just little lapse in concentration.

“He is more disappointed than us and these things happen. It is how you respond to it.”

The draw meant that Saints extended their unbeaten Premier League run to four matches.

However, they have also slipped back into the relegation zone.

Lambert admitted he was frustrated that the team had failed to seize the opportunity to win a third consecutive game.

“I am definitely frustrated not to get the three points,” said Lambert, whose goal marked his sixth strike of the season.

“I thought we played really well in the first half and I thought we were definitely going to win it.

“We’ve come in disappointed at half-time and felt we could have pushed on in the second half.

“We haven’t managed to do that so, yeah, I am disappointed.”

Great comment Ricky, lads and NA must be up for their Anfield visit. Agreed that we need a solid keeper to help us secure our premier league survival. Gazza is a good prospect so it will be interesting to see how NA reacts in January.

I said to my mate as he positioned himself for the free kick " he's standing too far over leaving his near post free" and look what happened.
I'm not blaming him but he has to work on his positioning, he is still young and is learning.
What I would say is that's two draws out of our last three at home which have been the result of two mistakes, we have to cut out the errors.
Norwich did make it difficult for us but their attitude changed after they had scored.
I think a lot of people would have taken 4pts out of 6 for our last two games, but I would have rather the results been the other way round, as I think Norwich are going to be in the dog fight with us.
All we have to do now is go to Anfield and get a result.
I can't understand why some fans booed at half time, they are obviously plastics.

Watching the game in the wee hour from sydney, and my opinion has not changed since my post after the QPR game, that both KD must come back in goals and also maya must also go, makes to many bad crosses and or passes to guys under even more pressure than he is under.... just a thought but KD did have to face 3 of 4 of the big teams and our defence in away is more stable now.... to a degree.

I think they were booing the ref mate not the players. A lot of people felt it shouldn't have been a free kick in the first place.

I was right in line with the Norwich free kick (from my Kingsland seat) and said the wall was not positioned properly (much too far to the right as you look at the goal). Gazza didn't seem to take command of it - again, maybe his youth and inexperience).

Nonetheless, he's getting better and he's learning - no dodgy passes out at all. I think he'll be a great keeper in time and Rickie's saying the right thing because any lack of confidence will hamper his decision making.

Nonetheless, at the end I pleased with a draw - having feared the worst as the second half progressed. And 8 points from the last four unbeaten games (with only two goals conceded in three) is real progress.

Liverpool will be huge for Rickie and Nigel. I'd be inclined to field Kelvin to keep cool below the Kop, but dropping Gazza would cement any damage to his confidence.

Still, Nigel will have to live with the decision made while looking up the dimly lit lane of future uncertainty - while the rest of us will have the luxury of judging the scene when it becomes a wide road bathed in the bright sunlight of hindsight.

More experienced keepers than Gazza have got their wall angles wrong.
David Seaman v Holland, Word Cup qualifier, Rotterdam, October 1993 - The whole world knew Ronald Koeman was going to flick his free kick into the opposite corner to where Seaman was standing - and so he did to make sure England missed USA 94.

Our GK stocks do seem to be a problem area. I think Gazza is being exposed too early to the pressures of No 1 in a prem team.
Brad Friedal is a name being bandied around for Jan, out of interest what is Shay Given up to currently?

I hope Gazza plays in goal and I hope he keeps a clean sheet with a string of brilliant saves right in front of the Kop. Mainly because it would really, really annoy Mark Lawrenson, who has decided to have a pop at Gazza every chance he gets.

Seedhouse the Unrepentant says...

I was a guest in a box last night so I gave my usual tickets to a couple of colleagues. One is a Citeh supporter, but proper Manc and STH and knows his football. His reaction was that Gazza was hopeless, he said he was rooted to the spot on several crosses, he could see the worry spread across the back four who then stopped passing back to him and of course his positioning of the wall for the free kick and subsequent mishandling of the shot.

I understand people saying he is young and needs the experience. I'm just not convinced we should risk premiership survival in order to give him that experience.

Totally agree, would of lost that game in October, and now we are disappointed that we didnt get all 3 points!
Don't think Gazza's positioning was wrong, the wall could have been better but the ball went through his hands.

Ooh careful! THEY, won't like that! You'll be in front of their kangaroo court being accused of being a 'skunt'. You see with that comment you're insinuating that Nigel Adkins, a former goalkeeper, demonstrated poor judgment when he purchased Gazza. Not a wise thing to do on this site!

He is very young for a keeper & he will make the odd blunder ....

Sorry fella, but I also think Gazza is not up to it.
The wall was fine, he just let it go under him. I think he is a very nervous keeper. He appears cocky at times but I think it is hiding his nerves.
Every time the defence got the ball they seemed to be under the instruction of ' no back passes'. That really made life difficult and nearly caught out Yoshida & Fonte a couple of times. The defence is improving all the time but at the moment Gazza is causing more anxiety than needed.
I am going to Liverpool and I think in that atmosphere you need experience. KD should come in. He served us well for the last 2 yrs. He will be fine. Gazza has to accept 2 big blunders in 2 home games means he has to be rested. Not the end for him, just a rest.
I still think we will get a point at Liverpool .

The last few weeks have been very positive really.

Before the QPR game I was afraid that we'd be down and out by the time the transfer window re-opened. As it stands though we may not be in the bottom 3 when January arrives which is an excellent platform to build on. A few shrewd signings and we should be safe well before the final day.

Personally, I'd play Kelvin in goal with a view to finding a top class keeper in January. Gazza was surely signed as a future number 1 and I think we all agree he has the potential.

7 points out of 9 with more to come at Klanfield. COYR!

I think it's unfair to criticise Gazza too much for that error. All keepers make mistakes - in fact, just last night Al Habsi and Begovic both blundered but you wouldn't call for either of them to be dropped (well, Begovic maybe, but for his links to Pompey!)

Why not criticise Clyne for diving in on the edge of the box (cardinal sin for a defender)? Why not criticise our attackers for not scoring more than one in a game against Norwich?

One error from our best prospect in the goalkeeping department (when he also made a half-decent save from Holt's header) is not the end of the world.

I hope he doesn't go the way of Bart and lose all confidence because the 'fans' start to get on his back.

Nonetheless, he's getting better and he's learning - no dodgy passes out at all. I think he'll be a great keeper in time and Rickie's saying the right thing because any lack of confidence will hamper his decision making.

Nonetheless, at the end I pleased with a draw - having feared the worst as the second half progressed. And 8 points from the last four unbeaten games (with only two goals conceded in three) is real progress.

Liverpool will be huge for Rickie and Nigel. I'd be inclined to field Kelvin to keep cool below the Kop, but dropping Gazza would cement any damage to his confidence.

Still, Nigel will have to live with the decision made while looking up the dimly lit lane of future uncertainty - while the rest of us will have the luxury of judging the scene when it becomes a wide road bathed in the bright sunlight of hindsight.
I hope Gazza plays in goal and I hope he keeps a clean sheet with a string of brilliant saves right in front of the Kop. Mainly because it would really, really annoy Mark Lawrenson, who has decided to have a pop at Gazza every chance he gets.

It was 100% the ref who was being booed. From the Northam end the Norwich goal just looked like a decent free kick. It took seeing the replay on MOTD to see that it was an error, so I'd be amazed if anyone up our end was booing anyone but Clattenberg.

Block 34 says...

he's young
he's inexperienced
all keepers make mistakes

how many more excuses?

We're in the Premier league, in case u haven't noticed. There's no room for sentiment (Kelvin didn't get much did he?). 3 games out of the last 5 have seen C*ck ups from Gazza. I think he will be a great kepper, but not yet. Send him out to a championship side to learn his trade (eg how to position a wall), sell Boruc & Kelvin (although I'd give him another chance as I think he's a good keeper) and buy Brad Friedel - about to be dropped by Spurs but still a top quality goalie.

How can we accept such basic errors costing us points? Yes, some great saves from Gazza, but too many mistakes.
he's young he's inexperienced all keepers make mistakes how many more excuses? We're in the Premier league, in case u haven't noticed. There's no room for sentiment (Kelvin didn't get much did he?). 3 games out of the last 5 have seen C*ck ups from Gazza. I think he will be a great kepper, but not yet.

Norwich did make it difficult for us but their attitude changed after they had scored. I think a lot of people would have taken 4pts out of 6 for our last two games, but I would have rather the results been the other way round, as I think Norwich are going to be in the dog fight with us. All we have to do now is go to Anfield and get a result. I can't understand why some fans booed at half time, they are obviously plastics.
Think they were booing the ref, was never a free kick in the first place.
I'd like to agree with you but having seen it a few times, Clyne doesn't get the ball and does get the player.

I think we'd have been furious if it had been at the other end and the ref hadn't given it.

Still, we're due a good ref, so maybe we'll get one at Anfield - for once.
A Saints penalty for Rickie in front of the Kop. Oh Strassie you do make me laugh
A good ref at Anfield? .... A miracle
A penalty in front of the Kop? .... Impossible.

What's the expression? Miracles we do, the impossible takes a little longer. :)

The mistake was squandering £19m on two out field players who've yet to demonstrate they are any better than Saints nursery players or bargains such as Rickie.
The mistake is clearly down to NC and NA who've left the squad in the toughest league in the world with a novice keeper and two that are well and truly over the hill.
If LMcM rightly said a good keeper is worh 10 points a season then a bad one must be worth minus 10 = 20 points the difference beween relegation and mid table comfort.
Since when is Rickie the club spokesman? ---- he's neither the manager or the captain --- I hope he doesn't fall foul of Cortese for saying what he thinks.
Has Solent Interiors been paid yet?

Cost us 4 points? What have I missed? I though he cost us 2 goals, with Yoshida helping in on the 1st. But unless they were conceded in stoppage time I'm not so sure they cost us 4 points. Inability to score on a host of chances is what cost us in the end. More than likely we would have needed a second goal to be sure as the opposition would throw peolpe forward and searching for a goal.

Well done for being so optimistic, but wasn't it two points dropped? We need to set the bar higher than being content with a point at home against Norwich.
Well said!

i hate drawing at home,

goalkeeper costing us at home!

davies would of saved that
Don't get me wrong, we've got some great fans. But there is this prevading mentality amongst some of them, that you can't say anything that might be seen as negative, about the manager or the team. We call these people, Happy Clappers!
Yes, yes, let's change GK every time they make one mistake or two!
We can do the same with other players. Change Lambert if he doesn't score in one/two games, Lallana if he doesn't assist etc...
Hey! Football is a lot easier than I thought... you just have to get rid of the bad players and play the good ones... clever! We should all be managers!
very good point could not of put it better myself i would start the same 11 saturday players should be fit enough to play 3 games in 6 days if required.

Totally agree, would of lost that game in October, and now we are disappointed that we didnt get all 3 points!
Don't think Gazza's positioning was wrong, the wall could have been better but the ball went through his hands.
Lambo, Shaw and Gaston looked tired with 30 mins left and I would have made the changes of Jay Rod, Mayuka and Ben at around that time, but hey who am I!
Lets get a positive result on Saturday.
you guys for real?

we should be winning at home!

not drawing at home to norwich and swansea!
Why should we be winning at home vs Swansea and Norwich?
What divine right do we have to win at home against similar teams to ourselves?
Of course you would like to beat these teams but from my experience Football's not like that, otherwise Norwich wouldnt of beaten Man Utd & Arsenal at home would they?

I was right in line with the Norwich free kick (from my Kingsland seat) and said the wall was not positioned properly (much too far to the right as you look at the goal). Gazza didn't seem to take command of it - again, maybe his youth and inexperience).

Nonetheless, he's getting better and he's learning - no dodgy passes out at all. I think he'll be a great keeper in time and Rickie's saying the right thing because any lack of confidence will hamper his decision making.

Nonetheless, at the end I pleased with a draw - having feared the worst as the second half progressed. And 8 points from the last four unbeaten games (with only two goals conceded in three) is real progress.

Liverpool will be huge for Rickie and Nigel. I'd be inclined to field Kelvin to keep cool below the Kop, but dropping Gazza would cement any damage to his confidence.

Still, Nigel will have to live with the decision made while looking up the dimly lit lane of future uncertainty - while the rest of us will have the luxury of judging the scene when it becomes a wide road bathed in the bright sunlight of hindsight.
I hope Gazza plays in goal and I hope he keeps a clean sheet with a string of brilliant saves right in front of the Kop. Mainly because it would really, really annoy Mark Lawrenson, who has decided to have a pop at Gazza every chance he gets.
Glad to see I'm not the only one notice that pratt Lawrenson constant jibes at Gazza! Last night he was constantly sarky about Gazza and said something along the lines about sewing his arm back on.

The very same pratt who said Gaston would never sign for Saints!!

Went to to game last night.The draw in the end was about right.
Saints dominated most of the first half, admittedly against 12 men as usual.
Deservedly Saints took the lead only to be spoiled by the 12 man (inblack),who made his worst of several dodgy decisions.
We seem to be plagued by these "quality" refs,didn't we hope they would be better when we got to the Prem.
Saints were badly affected by this and after the break never got back to the same level.
Our players were struggling to try to get control,I have to say our recent midfield domination went missing.
I am of the view that Sundays game took a lot out of the boys,particularly Punch who looked tired from the start,why he had to suffer for 80 mins is a mystery.
Norwich were lucky to have had the extra day rest.
Big possitive though,Luke Shaw has been a revelation
Onward now to Liverpool,hope the boys can get lift themselves for this one.
Rickie will certainly be up for it even if he is still kn@ckered,I know he will demand It from the others too.
Refrain from the mistakes and give the travelling fans a great trip home .

CBFry, your history (particularly of the Saints) is amazing.

Interesting stuff about the old firm. Bertie Auld is well before my time but, if correct, it's fascinating that a protestant played for Celtic back in the day. I had always thought that Mo Johnson (who played for both) was the first to play for (note the quotation marks) 'the wrong denomination'.

Norwich did make it difficult for us but their attitude changed after they had scored.
I think a lot of people would have taken 4pts out of 6 for our last two games, but I would have rather the results been the other way round, as I think Norwich are going to be in the dog fight with us.
All we have to do now is go to Anfield and get a result.
I can't understand why some fans booed at half time, they are obviously plastics.

I think we need stability and maturity at the back and I for one cannot understand why Kelvin has been dropped. We was one of our star players last season (especially at Leeds) and a mature head at the back will help feed confidence to our defenders.

Don't get me wrong, Gazza has the potential, but we really need to stop leaking such poor goals.

Even for the forward players; it must be so disappointing when we make such basic mistakes at the back, as it's so hard scoring goals at this level.

Super Kelve back in for me!

Well done for being so optimistic, but wasn't it two points dropped? We need to set the bar higher than being content with a point at home against Norwich.

Don't get me wrong, we've got some great fans. But there is this prevading mentality amongst some of them, that you can't say anything that might be seen as negative, about the manager or the team. We call these people, Happy Clappers!
Yes, yes, let's change GK every time they make one mistake or two!
We can do the same with other players. Change Lambert if he doesn't score in one/two games, Lallana if he doesn't assist etc...
Hey! Football is a lot easier than I thought... you just have to get rid of the bad players and play the good ones... clever! We should all be managers!
For at least the last two years, every free kick we have conceded which offered a direct goal scoring chance, Lalla's been behind their line of site, getting the wall right for the goalie, usually Davies. Is it that he doesn't do it unless asked, or has Gazza told him he doesn't need it! We could all see the bl**dy great gap from the Kingsland! Still, as others have commented giving away a soft goal was not really the difference from Sunday, we just didn't have the cutting edge to score the other chances we created, and there where a lot of tired legs. The team have only just stepped up to the level of intensity needed to win in this league, and I think Wednesday was just a bit too soon to do it all again. Lets hope they can put on a good show at Anfield, then I think Nigel will have to try to get some sort of rotation on the go.

On watching the replay...I would tend to agree that a three man wall was not enough.
Gazza was of course at fault....which simply highlights the fact that goalkeeping errors can be game changing (whereas outfield players can rely on their colleagues to get them out of sticky situations).
Yes....a top class keeper would help us...but let's keep things in perspective....there
's plenty of other keepers making mistakes out there.
If we'd made more of our possession up front, we'd have gone in 3-1 up at half time and gone on to take the 3pts.

No one's saying change a player because he has a bad game. Gazza is a 20 year old keeper, who had 15 league appearances to his name before he joined us! With our back four, can he be expected to flourish in a division where mistakes are mostly punished. Out of all the positions, the gk one calls for the most experience, the poor lad hasn't had much. Neither he or the club will come out of this well. Loan him out to championship team and we'll have to wait till the window opens. NA has to carry the can for this. Sorry happy clappers!

Gazza will be a top class goalie in time. Will be! We should get relegated first and he can become tagged as a keeper prone to errors? Good idea!

I agree Slugger! What's going to happen to him though? NA is raving about Shaw justifiably so. He raved about JWP following the Manchester games Arsenal and Everton since when save for 5 minutes against West Ham he's been on the bench. JWP wasn't on the bench last night despite having recently signed a 5 year contract. Will shaw end up in the same position?

The difference between Shaw and JWP is obviously that Shaw at the moment has little competition unlike JWP where there s a lot of competition.

Do people think that youth should be played namely Shaw and JWP or are they too young. How many 17 / 18 year olds play in the Premier League leaving aside Raheem Stirling?

I have always thought Ida player is good enough they're old enough or is NA being pressurised by more senior players to play them?

In the very first move of the game Fatty Holt had a good lean on Shaw and, again, Shaw gave as good as he got.

Very impressed with him, a good head on his shoulders, pacey and with a lot of presence for a young 'un. Terrific combination.

It'll be interesting to see if LS sticks with us long term...gonna be some big offers coming in for him without doubt. We need to stay strong and see the youth flourish in Saints shirts. Judging by the U18s and U21s...there's plenty more talent coming.

I think you're right, the key is the amount of competition (Unless JWP is carrying an injury, of course)

JWP is competing against a good five man midfield bunch who seem to have been on good form recently (though I thought Spiderman was well off form last night). JWP got his chance while Cork was off (and I still think Cork is one of the major reasons we're back on track)

When it comes to Luke, he was given the chance after Danny Fox made a few mistakes - he took his chance and looks very solid, so he keeps being picked. Deservedly.

Jwp is a good prospect but spiderman has been one of our best players this season for me and with 4 bookings could be due to have a break soon anyway , the goalie issue is a difficult one cos none of them have been commanding or totally convincing

I think they were booing the ref mate not the players. A lot of people felt it shouldn't have been a free kick in the first place.
Exactly right. By the time the halftime whistle went most people had seen enough of the clattenberg little shop of refereeing horrors and directed boos accordingly.

The goalie made a mistake but he going to as he is in-experienced.
The reason we didn't get the win was the movement up front, lambert was static after his goal.
Norwich played a clever game, got players behind the ball and defended well. I'm not sure our attacking players, after 20 mins, really worked hard enough to create space and time for each other. We need to be better, newcastle gave us time that Norwich didn't. Where or have we got a plan b? Would have an injection of pace up front been more beneficial?
Plus side, our full backs looked mustard. Shaw gets better with every game and is cool as a cucumber. Clyne is like sh1t in a field.... All about every where!
Tough game against Liverpool on Saturday, if we don't up our effort could prove painful.

Lambert is a better player than I gave credit for but lacks pace, and pace scares defenders. A defender will drop deeper to allow for pace giving that extra space. The 11 that started is in my opinion the strongest we have at present but I think an injection of pace up front to stretch Norwich would have been best......... Then again we could have lost!

I thought Lambert looked bushed from about 70 mins so his pace was even worse than normal. Normally he makes it up by thinking and being in the right spot at the right time but he did seem to fade.

I'm surprised Mayuka wasn't brought on to replace him for the last ten minutes or so. He'd have terrified a knackered Norwich defence.

As a general point, I do sometimes think NA is a bit late with substitutions in general since we've been in the Prem. Perhaps the abuse he got for the subs earlier in the season got to him. Alternatively, perhaps he know a bit more than me!

Yep - I honestly can't remember Shaw making a mistake against Newcastle or last night. Great judgment for a young man - prepared to play his way out but also hoofs it to row Z when he has to. He is bound to have a poor run at some stage - always happens with young players - and I don't think Fox is good enough. Problem will be to get someone good enough in the window who doesn't force Shaw out of the team. Reeves might be good enough as back up but he looked nervous last night.

Not neccesarily, moving the ball forward quicker and may help. There were several opportunities for Clyne to thread balls straight through for JayRod to run on to last night, (and I mean great gaping channels!) but he and others preferred to move it through midfield and side to side giving Norwich time to defend

Lambert is a better player than I gave credit for but lacks pace, and pace scares defenders. A defender will drop deeper to allow for pace giving that extra space. The 11 that started is in my opinion the strongest we have at present but I think an injection of pace up front to stretch Norwich would have been best......... Then again we could have lost!
I disagree with your contention about the position of defenders. Yes pace scares defenders and they sit back a yard or two to allow for that, but attackers with pace also sit back further to allow for their pace as an advantage. Ricky pins the defences back and that affords us much space just outside the box. Do Prado (as an example) runs the line of the defence and is controlled by that line as they move out.
I do agree with your comment on an injection of pace for last nights game though. A chance for some rotation of players was lost. I posted on here yesterday morning that if we tried to play the same way as Sunday we would tire in the second half.
If we keep trying to play the strongest 11, they will become the weakest 11, if we keep trying to play the same way, we will soon get found out. All teams do.

Still, unbeaten in 4, let's make it 5! COYS!

on another note i do love the way the wums get all defensive and aggressive and start name calling, whilst they are having a dig at the regular posters on here. what they dont understand is that we all have different views and would all pick different teams and tactics, however we can debate these issues sensibly, with humour, but without namecalling or getting aggressive. the 1 thing that we do have in common is that we love saints and will defend our team against people who have no respect for our squad or manager or chairman. there is 1 who posts here saying that you cant say anything against NA or the kangaroo court will have a go at you, well anyone can say he has picked the wrong players or tactics or even got subs wrong, fine debate it, but just to tack the p out of him for a poor picture is just juvenile and quite sad. i have never known any saints fan who would do this, to pretend that you go to games is so sad as its easy to find you out! 1 wum couldnt even research season tickit prices, another didnt even know about fireworks at an away game. your attempts and wind ups are as rubbish as your lives. next time you look in the mirror take a good long hard look and say to yourself " what has my life come to, shouldnt i be out meeting people and enjoying the company of real people, or should i continue to pretend to be something i am not, to try to annoy football fans?" i wont call you poopey fans because i dont even think you are football fans! poopey fans would an do make themselves known, and to be honest i respect them for that! i dont care if you call me names, water of a ducks back, i just think you need to grow up. your not around in this world for long so make the most of it! you never know you might even find a girl who likes you!
Agree mate , I don't think they are skates, just fookn tw'ts. (is there a difference!) Don't mind BWR, he's obviously one of the blue few as was Nomoreglory and it's quite funny banter but the others are just wums. I don't reply to them and not even a ssshhh cos they deem that as a reply I'm sure!
As for the kangaroo court - I haven't had a hard time for my views , some need to learn to put their opinions forward in an objective and reasoned way, then they may be heard. Across the board I've found my fellow Saints fans to be respectful as I am (excluding Tebourba of course who deserves every thing he gets!!)
(NC is to blame for that comment!)

Luke Shaw though - top top top top draw!!

Great comment Ricky, lads and NA must be up for their Anfield visit. Agreed that we need a solid keeper to help us secure our premier league survival. Gazza is a good prospect so it will be interesting to see how NA reacts in January.
Prospect - Gazza is just that! I've never known a top quality goalie who's 'balls didnt drop' until he turned 30

Yeah yeah lessons learned and all - but we can't afford to 'on the job' training!!

Reinstate KD and get him to 'marshall' that defense!

Gazza should stay in goal whilst his confidence is sky high especially against Liverpool on Saturday whom are starting to play some great football like Liverpool of old.
The scummers on the end of a 4-0 thrashing...things never change.

I'm no expert but from my point of view the distribution from a goalkeeper is an important factor - and Gazza is very good at that.
His kicking generally is much better than either of the other two, and he gets the ball out quicker.
How often do you see Kelvin come off his line for crosses - they don't call him Dracula for nothing!
I say we look to the future - he will learn. He is a talent we need to give some experience to...and not let him sit on the bench and turn out like Bartman.
The defensive unit needs time to gel - I thought they were getting better every game.
I seem to remember Kelvin getting beaten time after time at his near post over the last 2-seasons. He is by far the most experieinced keeper - but that doesn't mean he's the best for the club. If Nigel picks Gazza on merit after a weeks training then that's good enough for me!
