Paul Lambert has said he won’t let the players get too low after our last two results, just as he didn’t let them get too carried away with our two recent victories.
Quotes from the Official Site.
‘I have belief they will do it, they will give us everything again. People get carried away after the Norwich and Liverpool wins but I didn’t and neither did the team. I never let them get too high or too low. The nature of football is that you can get hurt at any moment. If you win, let it go. It’s the same with a defeat. They will be fine. You have to bounce back, there’s no other way.’
Lambert rightly again today after that performance singled out the fans.
‘The fans were brilliant. They are fantastic in the way they have supported us. It’s pleasing to hear them back us, but we know we have to get results. We are in a semi final in a few weeks, and if you look at the league you’re not a million miles away from mid table. That’s what you have to strive for.’
And as for the performance, Lambert wasn’t happy with the first goal as he believes we should’ve had a freekick for a foul on Fabian Delph.
‘We rode our luck massively in the first half. We started the second half well, I thought we were in the ascendancy, but the first goal was a foul on Fabian. The second goal we had a good chance to make it 1-1 and then they go up the other end and score again. That’s what can happen.’
We have very winnable games in January that we really need to take advantage of, but we’ve got to get into our groves again and get back to the performances we were putting in prior to Chelsea. Lambert talks about keeping spirits level, but it’s as clear as day Chelsea knocked the lads and today was not the response anybody was looking for.
I suspect that will be borne out by the comments that follow this.
