Queens Park Rangers vs Middlesborough

Post by Andy_N19 » Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:29 pm

This could go either way. A scintillating Eze inspired 3-0 win or a Boltonesque utter embarrasment.
I'll let yer know at half time😎

Sounds like we are lucky to be even, another slow start.

2-1 to us, just before 1/2 time. Not bad for us.😁

Donkey defending yet again. We have a real problem here. Would be top of the league if we had a solid defence.

To be fair we could have had at least 5. So many attempts have been straight at the keeper.

We have to get in a defensive coach ( that knows what he’s doing) to sort this defence situation out.... and for gods sake STOP back passes.

We're conceding an average of 2 goals a game which makes winning games a real struggle.
On the positive side, we again had good energy today and played some neat football. Kane has one hell of a pass in him.

What a frustrating game. Defence has cost us again and I'm sure Warburton is aware of the 2 goals a game concession, has to be addressed.

So many things wrong today that it's difficult to know where to start. Obviously the defence and central defensive midfield are currently very poor, but why Eze is played so deep is puzzling. Further forward he can terrify teams as exemplified by the run late on which ended with him being fouled just outside the box.

Our defensive performances are consistently appalling. Two shocking goals given away today which cost us a win. We were winning 2-1 without playing well and under little threat until we literally handed them the equaliser.
We need to be more solid in midfield to help the defence out as much as possible and to that end playing both Chair and Eze is a luxury we can't afford.
Middlesbrough's defence was just as useless as ours but we failed to take full advantage today.

I found that puzzling too. Not only that he's was too deep but also paying on the right of midfield when he thrives on cutting in from the left. He rarely attacked the final third and didn't look convincing when in defensive mode which, to be fair, isn't his game.

Today Warburton shuffled the pack a little too much. It was a bit "Queens Park Strangers" out there.

He'd better be. It will cost him and us if he doesn't - that's the harsh reality of modern football. At least it isn't dull for the punters at LR( though some may be wishing for a pragmatic QPR performance before Xmas). Onto the Ruperts :roll:
