Thanks deadendjob.

How close was Smithy's header.

Their goal was certainly lucky, not an attempt on goal.

I note that all the penalties given in The World Cup for grappling at corners hasn't changed anything in our league, Sylla being held whilst stabbing the ball goalward.

If that grim little reel is in any way representative, it looks like we were out-thought, out-fought, and out-played pretty much from start to finish. Smith's header was about it, while Sylla, held or not, should be scoring from that range. And their goal (they all count, by the way) just makes our goalie look like a ball-watching schoolboy, topped off by Luongo's embarrassing pogo on the goal line.

I couldn't be there, and I feel for those who were.

As Lee Gib suggests, you are trolling us. I have looked at that goal a few times and wouldn't blame Ingram and certainly not Luongo.

Thank for correcting my opinion with yours! That's right, I'm purely malign, with no interest in QPR whatsoever!

How old are you again?

All I gathered from that, is that our new away strip looks more like purple than pink :shock:

A 1-0 defeat at Preston is not the end of the world, but, the way that it happened raises a few questions.
I expected a better outcome. In my little dream world, I imagined that Eze and Osayi-Samuel (Freeman, too?) would be taking on Preston defenders in the way that they did against Union Berlin. I also thought that, after a while, they would get chopped down and we would benefit from free-kicks. I have no doubt that there is great talent in those players, so, the question is 'Why did they appear to present so little threat?' Steve McClaren seemed to allude to that after the game, when he talked of 'releasing the shackles'.
How do we 'release the shackles' ?
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

kernowhoop, the way I saw it was we struggled to break their high press and play out from the back, a key tactic we've worked on in pre-season. This resulted in long balls often played out from the back. Our central midfield is too lightweight to win and keep enough possession against a big physical team like PNE. In short, we never really got started.

By 'releasing the shackles' I take it to mean providing our forwards with good quality ball in advanced positions with support, something we rarely achieved.

It was a game that would have been a tough start to the season for any team in this division so there's some encouragement in that we weren't that far away from holding our own. We have a young squad working on a different approach with a new manager. As has been said by others, we need patience this season.

Thank you. I remain optimistic that we can get it it right.

You got all that from less than two minutes of highlights ? Laughable.

Looking forward to making my own mind up at around 5pm next Saturday....

There seems to be posters with an axe to grind over our current management setup and using a tough away game opener as a stick to beat them is laughable......

Anyone whose read my opinions over the last few years shows I'm no fan of Uncle Tony or Sez Les but I'm willing to offer all a clean slate as FFP is seemingly and finally sorted.... The punishment may or may not be fitting but it's done...

Let's move on and go again next Saturday...

2018/2019.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

There are 10 minute highlights on the official site.
