Always liked Bidwell. Real old-fashioned pro - no histrionics or rolling around when he gets kicked, no winding up opponents, just gets on and does a consistent job for the team. Delighted for him today, as he's rarely in the limelight.

Hall played 90 minutes. When was the last time we got to read that! Great news.

Well done QPR and, again, well done McClaren. Very impressive.
That was a huge plus. If he can stay fit, he'll be like a new signing.

Thoroughly enjoyed the game today. Oteh and BOS impressed, as did Furlong at centre-half. And it's not every day we win an FA Cup game at the first attempt, and beat the Champions of Europe to boot. Well done indeed.

The Leeds mob were too loquacious for their own good.

SMc was complimentary about all the players he brought into the starting 11. I thought BOS was excellent, Oteh and Hall were good but Ingram and Kakay were not so good.

Nonetheless, collectively the team won and that's what really matters.
Just back. Ingram had some horror moments in the 1st half but was pretty faultless in the 2nd, making a couple of great saves. Pleased for him. Their keeper was poor throughout: surprised he is their first choice.

Kakay was targeted but did ok IMO, great to see Hall back and he played well, Furlong and Bidwell also solid with a lovely headed goal by the latter.

Scowen MOTM for me, always looking for the ball from Ingram, and got some great tackles in. Cousins had a mixed game but did burst forward powerfully, unleashed a great shot which their keeper had to make a great save.

All the forward players did well and looked sharp: Leeds struggled to contain them. BOS is great, some lovely runs but lack of match fitness meant he was struggling with cramp well before the end. Freeman and Eze were a constant threat, Oteh is of course no Wells but scored a good penalty and didn't look out of place.

A really competitive end to end match, good atmosphere, and a deserved victory. Decent Premiership team at home in the next round I hope.
Agree very much with the above. But I thought their keeper was good. I think he is the current NI keeper. He looked difficult to beat to me.

Agree with the assessment of our players apart from Kakay who I thought was pretty good. It was great to see the young defenders going on runs from the back (i.e. Furlong and Kakay). That seemed to have been stifled earlier in the season. I would like to see more of it.

Yeah, they probably don't get darn sarf much. Nice day out for them, bless.
Too Northernist?
