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!
    no what actually happened was that Punch was dropped so that Saints could show-case AOC and line up a deal.... He was treated very badly and had every right to take issue. Just how he did that was another matter and I am not in support of any player on big money who causes disruption. Anyway its clear now that letting Punch go would have been a huge mistake. So well done all for making friends and getting on with football. Yes he did get greedy but he will see that on the replays and will amend his game I am sure....
    I don't remember it was as you describe. Puncheon's form was abject and he was carrying wight and looking very lazy - he was actually kept in the starting line-up much longer than his play deserved. He may well have felt the pressure of AOC on the sidelines, but when AOC played he seized his chance and stayed in on merit. Can't be much fun being dropped for a 16 year old but don't think Puncheon handled it well. Still, glad to see he's back because now he causes lots of problems for the opposition not us."

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.
