I don't want my money back.

I enjoyed the first half.

The second half was something I've not seen in 50 years of watching football.

I can think of several far worse performances - Forest and Hull away last season for starters. The Milk cup final!
What are you on about, we've never been in the Milk Cup Final - I SAID WE'VE NEVER BEEN IN THE MILK CUP FINAL OK!
The only QPR game when I have left early. But, let me think. Did that game actually happen, or, was it something like that long dream in 'Dallas'.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

Three league games into the season and already the numpties want McLaren replaced...unbelievable really.
Don't be rude. That's not what I said. Were you there yesterday?
Apologies, it wasn't actually aimed at you personally but unless I read it wrongly you said something about hoping Cardiff do badly and we grab Warnock back....to me that screams of wanting McClaren sacked...no?

Thank you. Not quite what I meant. I suggested that the players and manager need to react - if not, THEN we'd have to grab NW if he gets culled from Cardiff. That's a little way off. I think we have to give SM a chance to repair things and straighten these players out but if he can't then nature must take it's course and he will be replaced and NW is, for me the best option. Time will tell but that 2nd half was a disgrace. An average WBA made us look like a pub team. It was only a few months ago that we beat Villa away and ruined their chances of automatic promotion.

Do you think NW will return to QPR on the money that SMC is on and no transfer budget? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Of the 11 who started that game (Villa away) - two (Onouha and Smithies have gone - two big losses in my opinion), one (Furlong) is injured and one (Manning) is out on loan. In addition Perch (who came on from the bench) has also left. That is a third of the team, including two key players in the goal keeper and the captain.

I’ve still not got over it. I tried to start writing something up but it turned into a rambling mess, so I thought best not to!

As mentioned earlier in the thread, the first half was actually very good.

But in all my years following QPR up and down the country - that was the worst, most pathetic, sickening, 45 minutes of football that I’ve ever witnessed.

A truly horrible day.
