  • The Sunderland and Shrewsbury games both had positives, along with some brutal punishment. Trying to stay positive, it suggests we can still pick up the points we need - as long as we play more like in those games, and less like in the Accrington…
  • (One of) Bayo's biggest struggles this season has been dealing with long balls that are nowhere near him. He tries his best to get across and challenge for a header, but more often-than-not it results in him fouling the player. It has highlighte…
  • Christ, why does everyone bother responding to these trolls?
  • I'd argue those "top class saves" are ones we should expect a 'keeper at this level to be making. The mistakes and awful kicking are costing us.

  • We have been blessed with some excellent 'keepers in recent years - but Allsop isn't at that level. He is solid enough, and the save with his feet on Saturday was excellent, but I think we need better. It looked like he had changed his kicking t…

  • I've always liked Stewart, and Jombati has been excellent at CB this season... but is that largely down the organisation from El-Abd? We hardly look solid with him, but it's looking awful without! I was content with the signing of Allsop in the …
  • @LeedsBlue I always want him to do well, and before his injury he was playing well - but I'm still not sure he's the answer to our current problems.
  • Leaking goals, scoring goals, and another tough fixture on the way... but at least Bloomfield has made 500 games and is scoring goals. I'm feeling positive!
  • Leaking goals, not scoring goals, and another tough fixture on the way... but at least Bloomfield has made 500 games, we have a goalkeeper who can't kick straight, Stewart is back in the team, and we're persisting with a formation that hasn't been w…
  • https://www.wycombewanderers.co.uk/news/2019/january/charlie-joins-on-loan/ This doesn't suggest that he'll be displacing the current midfield any time soon. Good to have more options though, and if he's out of contract in the summer it could be…
  • Reading up he's more of a right-winger and has even played at right-back.
  • We may have centre-backs to choose from, but we've averaged 2 goals conceded for the last 6 games... so I would hope we will try and find some solution to that!

  • He has just signed a long-term contract, so if he was to leave it would be for a fee, something QPR shouldn't be able to afford if they are skint.
  • Sounds like Barnsley have a sell-on clause too.
  • Holy shit balls! Great signing! Would we be using him at CB or RB I wonder (seems RB has been his main position since our loan spell).
  • Big "presence"
  • Ingram given the number 1 shirt by QPR for this season. Eze number 10.
  • @eric_plant said: I instinctively feel sad that they could be on the way out, but at the same time have only bought 1 in about 15 years I had the same reaction, although this vote is just on whether clubs have to produce a match-day progr…
  • @rmjlondon said: how anybody can blame Nathan is beyond me, yes he gave away a very silly penalty but Scott Brown cost us the game today along with GA team selection. The first goal in these games is so crucial when we conceded we had been the be…
  • Kind scores all-round this week!
  • If he finished the season with his best ever goal-scoring return, player of the season, team of the season AND promotion... do we think that would push him closer to or further from retiring?
    in Bayo Comment by chapmanio April 2018
  • @Steve_Peart thank you for that wonderful summary. I can remember that night so vividly and it will never be beaten. It was just incredible. I remember running up and down the front of the stand holding my shirt over my head, I have no idea why…
  • He was very lucky not to get sent off and he barely won a header (even unchallenged) in the first half, but after the instinctive blocks he settled down and looked more assured. A lot of people are getting very carried away about both signings. …
  • @eric_plant Barry Richardson?
  • Crikey @Right_in_the_Middle the insults are a bit unnecessary don't you think? You repeatedly highlight how opinions can differ, but then suggest I need a medical check-up... As I've said, twice now, I hope the extended run of games will help,…
  • I'm not sure how "very poor" compared to "done ok" qualifies as "so far away from my view of Max Muller it is unbelievable"! That's quite an over-reaction @Right_in_the_Middle. In my opinion Max Muller was very poor in the last two games. Maybe…
  • I think Muller has been very poor in the last two games. Error prone, poor in the air and incredibly slow. He does read situations fairly well, but still doesn't defend them well. I'm hoping it's just experience and this run of games will hel…
  • Paris is like a ghost on the pitch these days. Reluctant to tackle, jump for headers or even put his foot close to danger. Not to mention an inability to control the ball, pass to a team mate or dribble with any kind of purpose (goal at Grimsby …
  • I'm hoping it's just poor form (and you're right, he's hardly the only one), but it feels like the mistake against Spurs has really knocked him back. He doesn't seem as assured as earlier in the season.
  • How do you feel Blackman has performed for us since the Spurs game? Better or worse than before, or at a similar level? I haven't seen many games since Spurs so I am intrigued to know what others think. The highlights suggest there have been an…
