    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 ."

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.”
