Not sure five of those names play for QPR

Are you sure you're on the correct Football forum?

Justin Wellsby has given up being Archbishop of Canterbury in order to play for QPR. Swiss international Tober le Rhone has a sweet left foot and signed on loan yesterday :wink:

We still sound a bit toothless in attack. Mid-field needed looking at in the transfer window for me.

11 midfielders not enough?

First point away from home

Second clean sheet in a row

That will do for me

I'd have taken the clean sheet and point before the game - but it sounds like we should have had all three. Lot's to work on during the break for SMc... especially our finishing. It's a foundation at least.

A lot of them are wide players as you well know. I'm referring to the "Engine room" of the team. I'm not a fan of Luongo as most people know, and Cousins isn't the answer either.

Decent point given what happened to us on our last visit to the Midlands. Smith hit the post on the 90th minute by all accounts. Maybe he should have come on earlier ? I hope Schteve doesn't become dogmatic about playing his players. The clean sheet will be good for Lumley. That's important. Confidence plays a big part back there.

Excellent point and a clean sheet.
Always a good trip and the Gil Merrick stand at St.Andrews is one of the better ones for away fans imo.
Bring on Bolton.

I was surprised we didn't make any changes earlier than we did (85th and 89th minutes). After his performance on Tuesday, I'd have given BOS a run out, with at least 20 minutes to run at a trying defence.

It just seemed an odd decision by SM.

2 points dropped, frankly. Two poor teams,.although we were undoubtedly the better of them.

Birmingham offered no threat whatsoever, and the game was really there for the taking. You could understand putting Smith on, but replacing Hemed with Cameron was very negative.

You can say it's a point away from home and a clean sheet, but I doubt we'll play many poorer teams this season.
