Re: Ollie

Most of the 'tactically naive' criticism comes from people who are mentally naive. We were tactically naive against Forest and Villa. No ifs, no buts. They both exploited obvious weaknesses in our set-up which Holloway was unable to recognise. In fact Holloway has ALWAYS been tactically naive, just...

Re: Interesting Stats

I might be old school but surely football is about winning. If given the option of winning or losing but in an entertaining way how many would choose the latter. I've never heard anybody say what a season, relegated but the entertainment was first rate. That wasn't your question. Your question was,...

Re: Interesting Stats

The results might not be better, but the football is undeniably more exciting and fun to watch

Re: Ollie

Most of the 'tactically naive' criticism comes from people who are mentally naive. Really? Did you watch today's game? If anything i think Holloway get's an easy ride because of our fond memories and i agree he was a big part of an enjoyable period. We started the season much better than expected a...

Re: QPR v Aston Villa

First 35 minutes, we were doing fine. The referee had a shocker: his poor decisions certainly helped Villa regain their composure, and while they got a slightly lucky penalty, everything was going their way by that point. Second half, we simply weren't there: they had too much in reserve. We huffed...

Re: QPR v Aston Villa

Is it me or is Lynch getting worse? He's okay in the air but that's about it. When under pressure he's easily turned, gets his feet in a muddle or, as he did today, messes about in front of goal when a simple clearance is all that's needed. He looks like he thinks he's Franz Beckenbauer but plays l...

Re: QPR v Aston Villa

I must have watched a completely different game. Yes, Villa were clearly better than us, but as has been said we held our own in the first half, and struggled, but held on for most of the second - if Smith was able to direct a header AWAY from the keeper we may even have got something - I never thou...

Re: QPR v Aston Villa

Sorry Happy Clappers, but that was crap. If you pick Smith, then play with width and get some crosses into him. Easily the worst home performance of the season; guaranteed third successive defeat on Tuesday, so we’ll be dropping like a stone by the time Brentford turn up. I don't recall seeing you ...

Re: You reckon anyone could leave in Jan?

Just to add to this post, it was brought to my attention at the weekend that QPR refused to allow Matt Ingram to play in the FA Cup tie for Northanpton v Scunthorpe last Saturday. I further understand that although Ingram is on a season long loan, he can be recalled at any time and I was surprised ...

Re: You reckon anyone could leave in Jan?

I have a feeling there will be plenty of £££ flying around in Jan. Luongo Freeman Smithies if a top six championship side or bottom half premier came in for any of them with a sensible offer could we turn it down?? We did well to keep our squad together in the summer something tells me we might not...

I guess not but there's possibly a school of thought that might suggest we won those two games by chance rather than by design
With all due respect n22 - that's bollocks

Re: Nottingham Forest vs QPR

For my sins I live not too far from Nottingham and occasionally work in the city. I therefore come into contact with a lot of Forest fans, many of them season ticket holders. What I am hearing consistently is: "That is the best we have played all season." That of course is scant consolation. On Sat...

Tony Fernandes: "I have fantastic relationship with all the managers who have left – bar Mark Hughes, who I’ve never spoken to since.”
Always liked Fernandes, he's gone up a further notch in my opinion now 8)
We really could have done worse, probably much, much worse!

Re: What if Sylla had done a Di Canio?

The goal against Sheffield United was a little against the spirit of the game, just wondering if he had have picked the ball up and given it back to the keeper, rather than gleefully slotting the ball into the empty net how we would have felt? I don't often feel sorry for our opponents but while I'...
