What a sad day. But one we should always keep in our minds - imo it was not about individual errors. It was about not being really prepared for the game. Call it complacency, lack of concentration, over-confidence - we never really clicked for the whole 90 minutes: a decent if not good side being blatantly disjointed. As if we were expecting QPR to beat themselves offering us easy opportunities to shine.
I'm really not keen to criticise the tactics and game plans. It's more the mental inconsistency we show towards the opposition that worries me. We had the momentum early 2nd half and we lost it. So a tough dogfight awaits. So be it.

Oh dear! What an awful performance.
We had 60% possession but did nothing with it. We were so poor in the final third. Samba bossed Lambert, and that's the most ineffective I've ever seen Rickie. Just shows how much we rely on him.
Puncheon did nothing all game. We needed a creative spark but it rarely happened. Ramirez was subdued and apart from his goal he didn't do enough. His delivery from deadball was awful too.
Lallana looked lively before he unfortunately had to go off and Rodriguez was our best attacking player when he came on.
Our defence was pathetic once again. Fox got caught out by a simple ball for the first, and then instead of closing the shot down he went to the goalline giving Remy the chance to steady himself and pick his spot.
Yoshida was at fault for the 2nd goal, he slid in on Park and didn't win it. If you commit yourself in that position then you have to win it. He didn't and Park had loads of time to pick out Boothroyd for a tap in. If we don't see Forren come in for Yoshida now then something is wrong. Does Poche not rate Forren? He wasn't even on the bench today!
Pochettino has his work cut out now. We need a plan B if Lambert is taken out of the game. We need our creative players to create something! Saints were too slow in possession today. If you want to play your way through teams then you need to do it quickly. Much improvement needed to stay up.
A hugely dissapointing display.

The players need to get away and go out on the piss more often. Still a very tough call, but we were fairly resilient today.

A better performance, no one outstanding and no one really poor. Still lots of individual errors but lots of good things too. Well done Park, I thought that ball was lost and then a good ball in for Bothroyd to tap in. Well done Green too a top save near the end.

My first visit to St Mary's good atmosphere in our end, good banter and the best set of stewards that I have come across. They were very friendly, helpful and no over the top security searches.

Come on City on Monday and it could be down to a 4 point gap!

Well that was lucky. Honestly, we didn't deserve to win that but then there are games we have deserved to win and came away with nothing. That's football I guess. Maybe our luck is changing. The QPR players are getting my underwear bill, those last 10mins (actually 16mins!! because of the ridiculous amount of injury time) were torture. Still a few moments of complete disbelief; I think Clive has mentioned this before in one of his analysis's (SP); we can't keep the ball for more than 2 touch's when we win a throw in. In fact we couldn't keep the ball at all, terrible passing by some, but then great passing by others particularly the assist from Hoilett.

Anyway, I can finally go into work Monday with a smile on my face. Come on you R's!!
