I'd say edgy, every time they get to our penalty area they look like scoring. We need a 3rd goal.
Great atmosphere at a packed Loftus Road
Yes I'm glad it full.. I tried to get a ticket yesterday and there was nothing in the R Block... only some in upper loft (I prefer to watch from side) and more tickets in C block... u have a superstition about that stand... I watched three times from there and 3 defeats.

How's Armstrong playing?
Sinclair as always did well. Right decision to take him off but he did nothing wrong. Wigan are the most tricky team in this division to play against but we didn't look clever in the 2nd half. It was as Brake said an ugly win. Job done today.

His direct running and pace caused Wigan problems throughout the first half. He was subbed at half-time and I wondered if he picked up a knock, as he did nothing in the first half to suggest he should be hooked.

I need England to get the job done quickly against Afghanistan so I can get home for at least the 2nd half.
They tried ... did you make it home in time?

Great feeling to post one of these based on first-hand experience (finally)

Armstrong looked fantastic. Clearly built like a brick s*** house, he drew more than a few cheap hits from the other side. That said, Dykes was actively encouraging + coaching him on, which was great to see. Keen to see him continue to play.

Like others said, the second half was nervy and uncomfortable to watch, up to and including watching Diet Andy Carrol’s almost goal. That said, nothing in life comes easy, and the 3 points were well earned. I’m hoping Johansen’s injury isn’t too serious.

Lastly, not to get to pedantic and soapbox-y, I had the privilege of meeting an entire family of 4th generation R’s supporters today, and the hospitality afforded to me, despite being a relative Johnny come lately, was nothing short of unforgettable. I cannot say enough good things about Paul (didn’t grab his last name—purely namedropping in the hopes he sees this message) and his group’s openness and warmth.

Unlike the bowling, fielding and catching, England's batting performance was painful to watch!

I had to make do with QPR+ stream on my son's mobile during the train journey home and caught the last half an hour on a proper TV screen. Thanks for asking Zenith!

The 'diet Andy Carroll ' you refer to was Will Keane who we had down here on loan from Man Utd during Rednapps season when we promoted via the play-off at Wemb ley. I wonder how many Rangers fans remember him ?
Jordan Cousins was another ex.Ranger on the pitch too yesterday , but his appearance seemed to go by unnoticed.

Great that you witnessed a win and heartwarming to hear of the welcome.... 1 for 1 Colorado, you can come again :)

I met two guys in the Queen Anne (Sorry ... Springbok) before the game Jeremy and Will. Surely that's not you? They had flown in from Denver on Friday.

If I wasn't such an old duffer who gets confused by technology I'd put the picture I took in the pub up here.

Pretty poor ref again. Didn't protect our players at all but when Richards ran off with the ball and delayed the game by 8 seconds out comes a yellow. That vile little dwarf with the beard should've been sent off for the number of OTT challenges he put in. One, on Paal I think, made a huge cracking sound. Must've been the shin pad, thankfully. That's it "Shinnie" was his name. What is that? A nickname. ****. At least we won despite this. Saw the game out nicely.

Glad you had a good time! What got you in to QPR, many of you out there in CO?
We've got a decent group here in NYC if you ever find yourself out this way.
