  • "If I remember correctly, just before Puncheon's 'crisis year', he wasn't our most popular player for 'on-field' reasons. That's to say, he had started the season badly, couldn't hit a barn door and was being given a hard time by fans.

    Then came his wilderness period - no one knows the exact reasons for this - followed by a series of loans to other clubs, most of whom wanted to buy him (Millwall, Blackpool).

    Some felt he was a bit of a traitor, some that it was in the club's best interests to ship him out, some just felt he wasn't good enough.

    I first saw him play at MK Dons (THAT Rickie hatrick in the rain) and thought he had a lot more about him than, say, Antonio. It's interesting to see where the two are now.

    Well done Punch for turning things around. As said above, I hope he isn't just playing for a new contract and realises he can push on and be a regular for the next 5+ years if he wants."

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.
