Re: Kakay & Hamalainen

You’re right there was a bit of a buzz about him amongst the fans, but then there always is around any young player that gets anywhere near our first team. I think we can be a bit guilty of over hyping our youngsters because we’ve been starved of any good ones for years and we’re so desperate to see...

Re: Kakay & Hamalainen

£400k was an absolute steal. Pretty much every fan could see it. How could the Barnsley scouts get it so wrong?

Re: Team vs Burton

I’d only just recently lost faith in Washington. I remember a pundit tipping him for the PL when we were on tv last season. “All the attributes”!

Maybe a bit of competition from players in his mould will do him some good.

Come on Rangers!

Re: Burton prediction

Not sure I’ve seen enough of Oteh to say whether or not he’s capable of getting goals. Usually I’d say that starting the youngsters out of necessity (ahead of experienced - and relatively expensive- senior players) must mean that we’re bereft of options, but Smyth proved me wrong!

Re: Two more gone

I remember petrasso looking ok when he played. Quite tidy on the ball but a bit small and the game just passed him by. Had a decent game on the right wing away at Barnsley on the last game of the season a couple of seasons ago. Possibly worthwhile as back up if we didn’t have anyone better. More abo...

Re: Ian Holloway

I think we will stay in the championship. I think that’s an achievement given the current climate at the club. I also think there’s passion (and a bit of skill) on show at the club at the moment. Young players coming through. It’s a hard league and we’ve got no god given right to stay in it. We’re e...

Re: SMYTHHHHHH

Exactly! I'd like to see some quotes from Ollie about protecting the young lad and developing him slowly. It doesn't raise expectations, but equally creates a quiet, reasoned hype around a young player. Like the big clubs do when they have a decent prospect.

Re: SMYTHHHHHH

It’s normal that we’re discussing that debut on here, but have you seen the club’s Instagram feed? There are literally tens of posts about his goal/debut since the match. I know we’re all happy and it was a great debut, but you’d think the club might try and keep their shit together.

Re: Can’t see Ollie lasting much longer

I understand Smyth attracted a lot of interest from other clubs before that debut, so it doesn’t seem that far fetched that he’d continue to attract interest after that debut.

But yeah, it was just one match so we should definitely not put to much pressure on him.

Re: Can’t see Ollie lasting much longer

No one would want to buy any of the following? Smithies, robbo, luongo, freeman, scowen, smyth? Honourable mention to Baptiste who is fast emerging as one of our best players. Few others left off that list who are doing a decent job like Smith, pav and bidwell. I’m not saying that the results are cu...

Seconded, I’m afraid I’m mainly a lurker but I’ve used this site as my primary source for opinions on QPR since it started. For what it’s worth, the current state of affairs at the club doesn’t feel that bad to me. Everyone bemoaned our big spending misadventure and if we aren’t going to continue do...

Re: What has happened to Esox Lucius ?

I tend to agree with lala on football matters, but that was a dickhead thing to say.
