Ned made it to the Times team of the week in their " The Game" supplement today.
That's astonishing if true, didn't they see him just hang out a leg
to allow Wednesday their equalizer?
It's true alright. The Game in the Times on Monday is a good little supplement compared to the dross produced by most papers. I wasn't at the match sadly, but he must have had a decent game to make their team of the week.

I wasn't at the game, but, I could not tell, from the film afterwards, how close to Ned the ball passed. I wonder whether a camera in line with him on the touchline would have shown that it was not, after all, a simple matter to intercept that ball?
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

On further inspection, it went down his left side - swung his swinger at it and did not connect - would like to think he is the type of player who will feel badly about this, and that he can give us another strong performance at Carrie Road tomorrow.

I don't see anything astonishing about it. It's possible to play very well overall, but make one mistake which unfortunately costs a goal. It's just that some people only ever seem to remember the mistake, and forget the other 94 mins.

Lynch and Bidwell didn't exactly cover themselves in glory for the goal either.
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Danny Maddix regularly had a howler per game, and he was a fantastic defender whose worth no one ever questioned
It appears that you can only be a scapegoat if you make a mistake in a dangerous position for QPR. No-one seems too concerned about Scowens 2 mistakes per game so far or any other outfielder that has misplaced a pass, missed a tackle, shot wide in a goalscoring position etc. I suppose Chief has a lot of critics looking for his blood now Henry no longer figures in the side... until Perch makes a mistake or gets booked I suppose. Fans eh?
Yeah, bloody fans, watching the game and giving their opinion. I recall some halfwit giving Clint Hill pelters on here every week for the crime of defending a little bit deep. Why oh why are we are all launching into Onouha for his endless blunders, it's so unfair.

Endless blunders is a gross exaggeration. He's a good player who often bails us out of the shit, something that's quickly forgotten. We're a better team with him in it. In an ideal world he's probably be on the right side of the 3, but that's it. I also think he is perfect captain material.

Endless blunders is only a gross exaggeration if one day his blunders end! But yes, a bit harsh and I do appreciate the good work that he does. Massively frustrating to watch at times though - you can almost see them coming. The free kick on opening day in our own half being a case in point. Getting back to the OP though, if we get an offer I would be surprised if we don't take it.

I guess it depends on the offer. I think everyone is for sale at a price, but that's a big hole in the defence, Caulker's future is massively uncertain and Hall has managed to sustain a chronic injury in the off season. I don't fancy a Perch, Baptiste, Lynch back 3 very much.

And it's not like Lynch and Perch aren't susceptible to injuries/suspensions.

We'd have to buy in if any of them were to leave.

So, we are all agreed then! ;D
Ned is not perfect, but he's good enough
If anyone offers a fee we should sell, but we probably couldn't find any value in the transfer market!

If I were manager it would take a pretty high offer to tempt me to sell Ned. As stated above, Lynch, Bidwell and Perch as our main unit sounds grim.

No, it should be a decent fee.

How much did we sell Charlie Austin for again?

4m quid. Austin was a huge loss, but i'd be far more worried about us staying in the division without Onuoha than i was when Austin left.
