Queens Park Rangers v Millwall Your Report added by Geoff78 at 13:01:07
Solid performance. At last players seem to know what they are supposed to be doing even though both goals had a scrappy fortunate feel too them - Luongo outjumping their keeper? Although Eze will deservedly get plaudits I thought our defensive play was the most reassuring for a long time. Tackles were won, defenders got tight on the opposition, blocks made and they were fewer occasions when attackers were free in our box. It has to be said Millwall were poor, apart from the threat from 7 foot tall defenders esp in the second half. Wells mobility was great alongside Eze showing promise for the future. And my MoM - surprisingly at I've been disappointed in him before now - is Jordan Cousins, solid defensively and almost scored.

Nice little touches, bullied too easy and give the ball away too often.
Same old problem though little creativity and hardly anyone who can score goals...soild enough and bright in parts but scoring will be our downfall unfortunately.
Not mega impressed with any of the new signings yet to be honest either.

Little to choose between our cut price beaten up and patch team and the multi-multi Million £ Stoke other than a shocking performance by a linesman.
Allen off side not once but twice!

That goal from Højbjerg reminded me of some of those goals put away by a sertain lad from Guernsey. But his all round display was even more impressing. Think we're beginning to see the real potential this Dane possesses.

Would have preferred different substitutions to Ward Prowse and Davis such as Yoshida and Targett and why no Romeu on the bench.

Look so much better, and more of a threat, going forward this season.

But....the same problems persist as the last couple of seasons e.g. starting the 2nd half slowly, conceding too many goals not long after scoring ourselves and generally looking "dodgy" at the back when put under sustained pressure, particularly when the ball is lumped into the box.

Vestergaard is a long way off Premier League standard at the moment (Yoshida or and Bednarek anyone?) and Cedric, again, was also terrible but because we don't have anybody putting pressure on his place this may well continue.

The big positive of this season so far is the form of Redmond (and i was 1 of his biggest critics) who has a better attitude and better body language about himself although the 2 things he really needs to bring to the team, crossing & shooting / scoring goals, still prove to be his biggest weaknesses.......at the moment.

Rating the referee at 4.7 just shows how stupidly blinkered and mindset some fans are. He kept a very physical game off the boil and tried to play advantage whenever he could and so helped the fast flowing spectacle at least in the first half.

Both pens were stone cold incontestable decisions and he did little wrong to attract the ire of these fans. But that's Saints fans all over, blame anybody but the bloody players and their useless coaching staff and the ref is their easy target.

This monumental cock-up had F all to do with the referee!

Still odds on for relegation in my book. This was Brighton with a team full of Johnny No Names on our turf strolling to a point that should never have been on offer to them.

Hojberg is by far the best striker we have so stick him up front and bring back Romeu to shore up the middle of our defence.

If Danny Ings is worth £20m then I am a flipping Dutchman!

If Forest are one of the teams to watch out for we have nothing to fear in this league ... apart from ourselves.
Potter had to make changes (and chose to make others) and it showed. Swans played like strangers.

austin is a dead horse and should be sold or sit on the bench.he is also bound for red cards.from the start i thought that Huges is not the right man to lead saints to a top ten final and still do.why not use gabbiadini?why not buying additional attackers when the window was open?the chances missed in palace were a proof that last season lack of cutting edge remained.

Very similar to last week except we didn't concede. Saints were brilliant in the first half again but just couldn't get the final ball right. It looked as if Long had missed a sitter but saw the replay and not many would have scored in that situation. Really strong first half and a bright start to the second until we scored. Then the usual jitters set in and although the defending was pretty epic for the most part, my heart can't stand much more of that, thank you very much. And then the second goal - what a moment, the reaction reminded me of when Chaplow scored against Manure in the cup but it was even better because we knew we'd won. Got to say that's about the best away support I can remember in the last two or three years. It's always good but yesterday was immense. I hardly heard the Palace fans throughout the game and yet they're usually the best home crowd. Well done all the lads, although Austin needs a bit of a reminder and not just because of the penalty. If Southgate was watching, I'd say McCarthy has a good shout for the internationals.

Quite funny to see comments from Apr1962 and themoffather on a Saints' fans webpage then followed by Saint Brock's normal negativity. Could he be yet another opposition supporter posting on the wrong site? 😜

Can't understand why Benteke wasn't near Cedric all the time for a free header. Surely Woy missed a trick and hadn't done his homework

It may have been a good idea to have let Redmond take the penalty. A goal scored would have done him a world of good and more to follow. Dreadful spot-kick from Austin, the game should have been wrapped up instead of a nail biter.

Nice to see the effort today, Lemina had a good game. PEH motm for me, I was happy with the way everyone played today, looked like they cared today.Why did Austin take the penalty only been on the pitch for a couple of minutes, could have made the last half hour more relaxing. You can’t hope to go away and not absorb some amount of pressure from the home team, it’s too be expected Saintbrock
