Queens Park Rangers v Preston North End Your Report added by Royboy48 at 17:22:17
Any other time would not have lasted long in the memory

Another sell out, electric atmosphere. It's a strange thing about the human condition that we're so jubilant, focussed and invested in just avoiding failure.

As I write, Owls have trounced Blackburn at theirs.

Let's make no mistake, we're right back in it...

Missied chances last season cost us our PL place Missed chances this season looks like costing us an automatic promotion It could also cost us a play off promotion

How many matches have there been when we only play one half Sometimes the first sometimes the second I do wonder if the coaching team give them too much information at half time which leaves them confused

The idea of an RM managed Saints in the Prem next season is, at one level, what we all hope for and why we are so disappointed at such a performance and result. On the other hand graveworm's point (so good he made it four times) that going up might not be a good thing is very valid. RM is managing a top team in THIS league and we are as open, and flaky, at the back as I have ever seen us. I will be delighted if we do go up (no point being a supporter if not) but would be fearful of RM trying to play like this in the Prem (as he would) without the resources to get the players needed (they have to be very good to play this way and we won't have the money)

I blame RM for many of our woes but the failure to put seems to the sword and the missing of easy chances is largely down to the personnel on the pitch. In the end, although Adams and Armstrong have scored a fair few between them they have missed sitters at vital times (esp. Adams) and the back-up players have not been up to it.

The play-offs will be anyone's guess. We have to beat two of Leeds/Ipswich, WBA and Norwich. Not easy at all.

Knuckle chewing, bum squeaking, valium chewing in the last 10 minutes as Rs sat deeper and deeper, Field and Colback essentially defenders with Rs struggling to get the ball upfield. But they held out and thoroughly deserved the win, although Dykes goal was fortunate.

The whole team played well and although the defence held firm thanks to a good save in the first half from Begovic, who generally dealt with any threats well, and a great block by Steve Cook. But Jake Clarke Salter was immense winning header after header, making tackles, getting into the right position to block danger and always looking calm.

Willock had a good game and Dykes was lively even before his goal. If there was a weak link it was Andersen and even his dead ball delivery was iffy.

But no doubt that JCS was MotM in my view.

Predictable. It was only going to end one way after some of the most woeful attempts at shots I've ever seen. The team should be ashamed of themselves and I don't think they were helped by a random handful of subs at 80 mins by an incompetent manager who has no idea how to what to do to positively affect the game.
Bloody useless.

I thought it was a 7/10 team performance overall but only gave JCS a 7 and MOM.

6’s all the way otherwise except Paal who I gave a 5 (perhaps harshly). I was tempted to give Dykes MOM just for scoring but we need so much more from him and he knows it.

I look forward to reading the match report, think the words will fly off the pen for Clive in his report. An enjoyable and important win.

Special mention to Marti and Xavi. What a turnaround and so many subtle little changes in our defence today which I’ve rarely if ever seen, even when we were good.

Great win. Great team performance . Should have won it by at least 4 highlighting again how poor our finishing is. Preston there for the taking. Almost safe now………..

Once more lack of effort in second half. Playing ball around in and about penalty area with a goalie no good with his feet asking for trouble and low and behold an easy win turned into a loss.

Really disappointing against an injury hit Cardiff side. Missed so many chances again. Sums up our season, dominate games but can’t finish teams off and pay the price. Wicked deflection for their winner, can’t blame McCarthyism for the goals.

Huge loss to see Armstrong looking to be ruled out for the rest of the season.

Despite missing a hatful of chances I thought we didn’t play well and failed to control the game.

The play offs it is then.

That’s the reason we would not survive in the premiership if we ever were unlucky enough to get promoted
Too many opportunities needed to score
The opposite as regards defending
When reality is mentioned you are classed as pessimistic
Personally I think it’s been an enjoyable season
But we need a massive clear out
To me the reality is we are nowhere good enough, if you base standards on premier requirements
Whether you want to blame the manager for his style of football is immaterial
You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear

Awful finishing yet again.
5 or 6 excellent chances missed.
We should have been out of sight at HT.
Further chances in 2nd Half.
Gift them a goal.
Panic.

We are joint top scorers in the league, yet throw away so many points.
We are being punished for not signing the quality Striker and Keeper we have needed all season.

If I did my job as badly as A Armstrong and Adams did I would expect be disciplined for poor performance but, hey, I’m sure they’ll just smile & wave and get on with it…..

When we needed a win we got 6 nailed on chances missed, a petulant display in the second half, masses of passes missed and a McCarthy near post classic.

Oh well, it's important to see getting to the playoffs as a success and not a booby prize.

I'm guessing Bednarek's yellow means he misses the Leicester game?

This goes to show you playing possession football means nothing when you don’t score enough,and losing this game against a team with only half a team with regular starters and half a team made up of reserve youngsters is a devastating result for Saints.What we can’t do lm afraid is defend for a full game and sooner or later you just know that we will give a goal away.Definitely no automatic promotion now and if we don’t watch out we may still be in the championship next season.

Super first half. That is our best formation and style I e a bit quicker out from the back. So let’s stick to it. Front three KWP and Downes all excellent. Adams is playing best I have seen him. So many runs in behind. COYR

First half excellent. Second half forgettable.

Did Preston even have a shot on target? Could have had Fraser , Ryan not Forster, in goal last night and still got a clean sheet.

Good to see the back 4 in place that built out unbeaten run. Must have helped settle McCarthy. McCarthy's hesitancy on playing with his feet almost caused an issue. Shea getting a run out was also good.

Players crowding to receive a long kick was a bit of a throwback.

Nice touch Che scoring as well were doing a round of applause for a fan.

Yes we played well, but ultimately that was a against a very lack lustre Preston North End, they had nothing to play for and it showed.They didn’t really make us work at all, if I had travelled all that way to watch that game I would of have been pretty annoyed.
