QPR 0 Southampton 3

Tempted as I am to pretend this never happened, it was deja vu all over again. Just like against Cardiff, Rangers were a shambles and the opposition could have easily doubled their score. The overworked Lee Camp was the only player who emerged with any credit at all, while Damion Stewart, who I have stuck up for in the past because he is a trier, was so shockingly bad he really has to be pulled out of the team as an act of mercy.

Tributes to Ray Jones were warm and, in the light of the circumstances, the fans again weren't too hard on the players and to be fair even the Southampton fans spared us the "can we play you every week" and so on. But Rangers have no more excuses for performances like this, and while funds may be available in January, if there isn't a quick improvement they could be so far adrift at the bottom by then that no one will want to sign. Really, it's that bad right now.
