Re: The Queens Park Rangers FA Cup Fiasco (video)

Thank you, if thanks are due, for that grisly compilation. Some of the most terrible goals we've ever conceded are surely found in that trail of disgrace. The FA Cup has certainly been sprinkled with magic for us - black magic! And even when we got to Wembley (twice) and scored a goal that might hav...

Re: Updates on new stadium, training ground and more

We are indeed not so much a sleeping giant as a woken midget. Our average crowd in our vintage 1975-76 season was less than 24,000. When we finished 5th (top London club) in 1992-93 in the first Premier League season, it was barely 15,000. In glamour/popular terms, we are now miles behind Fulham, an...

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

We're on a squeaky bum-type run, no doubt about that, but we may not even need that win. (Blackburn currently a goal down.)

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

OK - didn't know about the possible concussion. Perhaps, though, that's part of Ned's problem these days - he's just in too much of a comfort zone.

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

I hoe Ollie IS learning something with this disspiriting run of defeats. It feels like we took two or three steps forward with our winning run, and now four or five back. I don't feel too sold on the look of that side either, though am happy enough to have Mackie back in it - albeit presumably as an...

Re: looking up

Understandably quiet on the Board post Brighton, I guess not so much we lost, as more there's nothing in the game for us to fight iover. They won, good game, that's it. As Olly alluded to though, we needn't have fought at all, and Lord knows we did in the second half at least, but many would have c...

Re: Player of the Year Event Cancelled

I don't really see why the club SHOULDN'T subsidise it, in the same way that my editors' association kindly footed the bill for our Xmas dinner. Seriously, when do football clubs EVER do anything as a 'thank you' to fans? £119 is just a joke. IMO, Hoos needs to get real and not embarrass the club. I...

PS The last I knew, Robinson was a left back, so am a bit confused to see him starring in a new look five man midfield :shock:

Re: 5-3-2 anyone

I'd heard Ravel was carrying an injury, even though he's hardly been playing, so I hope he'll be (not literally) fighting fit tonight, and really up for it, otherwise it's likely to be "arrivederci" with time surely running out for him. (Which would be a big shame as he's a class act.) A good perfor...

As can be seen from people's choices for a starting eleven in any game there is a wide diversity of choices and every player is not even fit yet!
That's a pretty damning indictment of the lot of them! :D

Re: Match Thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Rotherham United

So he should. If our last chance saloon Lazio loanee can't turn it on when we're 4-1 up at home against the Champ's whipping boys, I'd ship him back to Italy before you can say arrivederci!
