    The other interesting bit of news, which is great news I think, we are in for Brad Friedel! He would be a great signing!
    There are quite a few quality keepers sitting on benches at Stoke, Villa and Spurs if we need them come January. In the meantime it's Kelvin for me now. Cork and Shaw have made a massive difference and, with Kelvin back, I think we'd have real solidity.

    If Nigel sticks with Gazza, great, just concerned that any mistakes from crosses and deadballs vs Ba and co could be costly. I'd prefer to see him blooded in a less pressurised situation.

    Shaw is a totally different case - yes he's young, but you can get away with it at left or right back. A keeper is much more fragile.

    I think Nigel did brilliant with him - protected him during our nightmare run of fixtures, blooded him towards the end of a game we'd already effectively lost and gave him two winnable games to establish himself.

    Fantastic show of unity on and off the pitch on Saturday - Saints fans deserve to feel proud for the way they've not just stuck by Nigel but actively supported him.

    I think a couple of years out of the top flight have helped us get our soul back and, win lose or draw, I'm a much prouder Saints fan for it.
    Spot on."

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.
