Three At Back Not Working
at 11:44 24 Oct 2021

Pulled apart yet again by pacy attacking players like Dembele, who was very good yesterday. The defensive system needs more adaptation, fine in a three formation with big lumbering sides like Birmingham, Blackburn types, but lack of pace and solidity against quick counter attacking teams has got us undone i.e yesterday, Bournemouth and Bristol City. Warburton needs to think about four at the back for some games and pack five in midfield with one up front, most likely Dykes.

Away Form
at 06:50 15 Aug 2021

One of the major improvements under Mark Warburton's reign has been our away form. We look a tough outfit to beat and in the last 2 seasons have been winning or drawing at places where we used to get rolled over easily. Tough game at Boro on Wednesday, but in the last 2 seasons have beaten them there, although without fans. Interesting to see if fans in the ground will have an impact on us getting a result.

Similar to the Early 80s
at 20:58 25 Jul 2021

The positivity of the 2nd half of last season, the signings and the way we are playing,albeit one very positive friendly result yesterday have echoes of the Venables era. It took him about 18 months to 2 years to get the team really motoring and push for promotion. He made shrewd signings, gave youngsters a chance and even though we had the plastic pitch we played some lovely football home and away. Mark Warburton has been at the club 2 years, building from within, making some great signings and the football is looking very entertaining. Venables also had a great assistant in Allan Harris, with news that Eustace is staying a bit longer, things are looking up in all departments.

Is It All Coming Together At Last
at 11:38 21 Apr 2021

We are having a great 2nd half to the season and getting results at places we usually roll over at. I know we have some great loanees who have upped our game, but we just seem to have a momentum that has been missing since we came down in 2015. Am I being too hopeful, or are we on the cusp of really pushing on next season.

Well Done Lyndon

Well done Lyndon, tremendous game today, that 1st goal brilliant header. I had my doubts about him, but he has started to come on well since that Reading goal.

Without stating the obvious....

Our away record under Warburton, both last season and now this season is pretty good. Regardless of fans not being in the ground we seem a much more rounded, positive team away from gome. I actually feel we play better, more confident of getting a result. I mean three consective away wins and no defeat in 6, pretty good stuff.

A bit concerning we sign him on loan and he appears to be unfit and not available.

Willock & Chair
at 12:56 28 Nov 2020

Last night's result was disappointing, but the positives from last 3 games for me are; Willock is looking really good on left midfield, good on the ball, comes inside well and I think his inclusion has improved Chair's game as he can now focus on a more central attacking role. They are linking up well together. Been impressed with Willock's tracking back and supporting Niko as well. I think we have the makings of one hell of a player in Chris Willock, just need his fitness to get up to a 90 minute game.

Watford Game Saturday
at 16:04 17 Nov 2020

Really hope we can get one over on Watford on Saturday. Can't stand them, goes back to our wonderful passing football in the early 80s under Venables, and Watford with their boring long ball football under Taylor.

Going For It Today With Line Up
at 14:16 24 Oct 2020

MW not holding back with starting 11 today, needs to take a risk and go 2 up front, with very attacking midfield. Hope it works out and defence holds up as only defensive midfielder is old boy Cameron.

From what I have seen so far of George Thomas he looks quite handy, he got an injury and was taken off against Middlesborough and has disappeared.

Get Dominic Ball Back in Midfield
at 13:49 4 Oct 2020

I feel we look much better going forward and defensively in midfield when Dominic Ball is playing. He offers much more in the position than Cameron, who's passing is all over the place. Ball has been unlucky to lose his place in the starting line up, maybe Warburton knows Cameron will struggle to maintain form at his age and Ball will step in.

Why Don't We Give Niko Hamalainen a Chance At Left Back
at 09:32 19 Sep 2020

All last night's goals came from the left side, it is clear that Wallace is not up to the role he is needed for as a left back. Unless Niko Hamalainen is totally useless, why is he not being given a go at left back. We have seen with Kakay a re-birth and he is doing really well on the right side of defence. Time for Warburton to take a chance.

Is it Palace for Eze?
at 10:48 13 Aug 2020

Yet more paper talk about Palace discussing buying Eze this morning. If it is all true, they do seem to be showing the most firm interest. Reckon if they up their bid to around £15m to £16m cash plus add ons to £20m we may bite. Don't think it would be a bad move for him, likely to get game time and the step up in the Prem with a mid ranking club. If he improves there then possibility of a bigger club next. Got to get a decent % sell on clause in the deal.

Size of Our Players
at 14:43 19 Jul 2020

Interesting that MW mentioned post match yesterday about the lack of height and overall physical presence in the team. For the last few seasons, it is noticable that most other teams in the Championship have serious height advantage. You notice it more when you are at the games, most teams are 6ft plus. Eze and BOS have in the last season looked to me that they have bulked up a bit and hence more able to hold their own. Obviously you don't want to have a team of large cloggers, but a measured balance based on physical and skill attributes. Maybe the penny has dropped for MW and and the potential need to focus on this in recruitment.

Big Match Revisited
at 14:08 9 Jun 2020

Great to catch up with the old games from the 1970s on the Big Match Revisited on ITV 4 on the ITV hub. The 31 May edition has QPR v Sunderland as feature game from October 1976. Brings back memories of our great team in that era, and a packed Loftus Road. It was certainly a magical place to go and experience a game. Personally preferred the layout of the lower South Africa Road stand in this period, before the paddocks were created around 1981.

1982 Cup Final Replay - Stainrod
at 13:22 23 May 2020

Watched the 82 Cup Final replay on BT Sport this morning. As I was at both games good to see the highlights again and how unlucky we were in the replay. Brought back memories of how good Simon Stainrod was in those days. Stand out performances from Stainrod, Waddock, Mickelwhite and Hucker. Shame Clive Allen got injured in the first game, if he had been fit to play may have been a different story.
