    It is a long time ago, but wasn't Puncheon ostracised for bullying Oxo? He may have been partly responsible for him deciding to leave in the end. Whatever the problem was,it was dealt with sensibly within the Club, peace was declared and all is well again. The only criticism of JP on Saturday was having got his goal, he then became a bit greedy looking for more!
    How can you be greedy trying to score at the moment? At least he showed some passion,thats what Saints need.
    He did well but was a little ambitious with some of the shots later on. However he deserves the praise for Saturday so enough said.

    I was a little concerned at the small errors Gazza made though. Gazza is learning and impriving but QPR were poor and against better opposition we would have been punished more severely. Their goal was a bad mistake though and Gazza was in no mans land. something that should be sorted out in training.

    We are most definitely better than our league position shows, so now we have tp prove that statement against a stronger team. Newcastle are a good test. I think we can beat them and keep our first clean sheet. Now THAT would re-establish us as a force to be reckoned with and boost team confidence.

    The shape of the team on Saturday looked strong, we need to cut down the miss passes, but generally that looked like a very strong unit that will be above the bottom six by the end of the season.

    Reason to be cheerful .............."

The player who has gone from outcast to potential saviour in less than a year believes Saints’ position in the league this season bears no resemblance to the squad’s talent.

Former QPR loanee Jason Puncheon produced a virtuoso performance on his return to Loftus Road, inspiring Saints to a crucial 3-1 victory that could have kept Nigel Adkins in a job.

A first away win of the season was not enough to move Saints up from 19th place, but Puncheon insists the side are now showing that they are far better than their position suggests.

“As a group we've always known that we shouldn’t be where we are,” he said.
