wayne is on one, could make it 2-0 and game over...goalie saves and we know the rest...
not a disaster but we seemed over run at the back...we do need full backs.
where was heidar? how bad is adel's injury?
why did buzza not start for adel?

very keen stewards seemed keen to repel any qpr "fun" ...if the army or un used these stewards maybe there's no war!

How on earth we manage to turn complete domination of a match into a rearguard action to keep the oppo out beats me. What goes on in players' heads to lost the plot so easily. Still we won and we deserved to win but why make it so hard on ourselves? Is it that our early pressing and high energy attacking just knackers us? If so then either we are collectively not very fit or we need to play at a apace that we can sustain for 94 minutes.

Some good performances today from Hojberg (MotM), Cedric & Bertie who is really looking like the great player of old and a clubman at last. Big shout out too for McCarthy who got most things right when it mattered. Ings disappointed for most of the time who only partly redeemed himself with a goal. His first touch and passing were woeful in the first half, if he is really not fit and in pain then why play him?

As for Austin... time to hang up the boots Charlie you just ain't fast enough or good enough for this league any more. Bugger me we've got Gabbiadini and we don't use him. Sometimes I think Hughes is as and as a frog with prejudices to match.

A footnote to dear old Nick, great to see Yoshida back on the bench and itching for action, he will keep Vestergaard and Hoedt honest and he doesn't panic half as much as those two hapless souls.

WTF are qpr1962 & themodfather and wtf are the doing on our website?

Not too bad! But what is happening with this group of players once they go 1 up, is a bit of a mystery to me. PS. That away kit must be the most hideous thing I've ever seen!

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

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.

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

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? 😜

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.

Good win for Saints.

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.
