Saints are a decent outfit. No shame in losing to them. Villa are probably -- more or less -- on the same level as Saints and Swansea.

Didn't see the match but Lambo will make mistakes, fulford. Remember it took Fergie years and at least one terrible run until he turned Man Utd into a decent side(s). Lambert is the right man for the job.

Ireland may have been injured. Nothing would surprise me. He picks up injuries very often. I can't see that Lambert would have changed it otherwise.

Ireland must have been injured even the commentators were saying his influence was growing...

I actually thought it was one of Ireland's worst performances. Just didn't seem to click for me so I welcomed the sub, but it just didn't work.

Hopefully, the fans will keep their nerve. This is a disappointment but the club is moving in the right direction. There might be new faces in January and short of a sheikh or oligarch coming in -- a terrible thought -- this is reality for the time being.

Absolutely dreadful. I can only assume that they were playing to instructions. If so those instructions have to change. 80% of the time when Guzan or a defender had the ball it was kick it as far as he could up the pitch. Completely aimless. What's the point of having a midfield if the ball consistently sails over their heads? Why the change from last Saturday when we played some decent football? This time it was all kick and hope. Come on Mr Lambert. Norwich didn't play like this this last season. We didn't play like it last week. If we play some football then we have a chance. If not then we will be turned over week after week.

On a side note the ref was very poor. Vlaar's booking came from a dive by the Southampton player as did the penalty. HOWEVER, these mistakes had no effect on the result. That was down to us, pure and simple. I'm so mad I can hardly type this!
