|Talk to me about your fairytale ending - Report|
Absolutely bloody marvellous match report Clive!
Imagine the poor ba****ds who missed the second half!!! (never leave an Rss game early!).
I must admit I began watching the first half thinking "that's odd, why is Lynch playing for Birmingham?"
The second half was as much fun as I've had at Loftus Road in bloody years.
Didn't spot the encroachment at the time, (as pointed out to me, only person in F Block who didn't).
Great to see fans reaction at the end, very generous, and nice reception for Camp as well.
One of your best Clive.
|QPR power past Pompey into FA Cup fifth round - Report|
Must be a Portsmouth thing, on a par with Miss Arizona!
A very good night at Loftus Road, you really captured our pace and energy,
Luongo was very very good, he really makes us play further up the pitch, great to see so many efforts on goal from him.
Pleased Bright is finally getting the run he needs, play Smith you must play Bright..
Interesting if he keeps Hall in , I would, no criticism of Leistner, but Hall is a better footballer, he's always been very versatile.
|QPR's league slide continues with pitifully weak Wigan showing - Report|
Thank god for your sense of humour Clive!
First 70 mins sounded grim, apart from Tuesday night, we need to buckle down and get to 50 points as soon as possible, this season was always about survival, ( in this division and financially).
Let's hope our loaners have all got release clauses!
Thanks Clive, great report!
|QPR fall in familiar Preston hole – Report|
Truly awful, (not your match report!)
I wonder if Oteh has broken the unwritten rule?
Does anyone know what the unwritten rule is?
Has Oteh ever considered becoming a holding midfield player?
Just a thought.
|Blades pip QPR in snooze-a-thon – Report|
Only listened on club radio, (well done those who travelled), and was curious that Oteh did not get on, his pace surely would have troubled Egan, (nobody has ever described him as quick), as for bringing on Smith, its just not fair on him, he cannot possibly play within this system, its just not for him, sort of bringing on an Ice skater in a water polo match, not his fault, but its holding back game time,( in a year where its unlikely we will go down,for Oteh who could learn on the job ,(so to speak).
Picked up the blatant fouling of Eze, Freeman etc every time we were ready to go on the break, but to be fair that's also one of our tactics as well.
It was grim on the radio as well.
|And for our next trick – Report|
Thanks Clive, great report.
To be honest its all getting to much for me, academy players, consistent team selection, winning away, winning FA cup games.
I'm just wondering is it worth going any more?
|That’s magic – Preview|
Oteh and Bright please god! ( your match review comments about Smith at Villa, and his lack of mobility , with our style of play, must mean question mark about his future).
Frightens the life out of me if anything happens to Nakhi.
|QPR make their point amidst Villa Park controversy - Report|
Marvellous stuff Clive!
Haven't enjoyed a QPR away game for years as much as this one, it was a truly great performance, particularly (as mentioned) when not that long ago, teams literally queued up to score against us either side of half time.
Yes, Freeman was marvellous,(again), he is now looking like a player who has added a bit of discipline to his final ball/pass/shot without losing any of his ability to get passed players , (calming down the drag back has helped).
I absolutely love Eze and despair when an up and coming youngster is barracked by his own fans, you just bloody despair some times.
I remember Gerry Francis's first 15 or 20 games for the Rss, he was good, and quickly caught the eye, pitched in against Liverpool (I think,) guess what? he made mistakes , the odd pass went astray, and he didn't score every week.
Turned out alright though.
Cheers Clive! great day, great match report.
|Slick, composed, professional QPR sweep past Ipswich – Report|
Great report as usual, must admit I was having a real wind myself up moment, waiting for the subs, (3.0, lots of fixtures, Luongo on his way, one experienced centre forward), but thought better of it as good win, and didn't want to appear negative, but.......
How much extra game time could Bright have acquired? he's had what? 4 minutes against Hull, (created goal), 3 minutes against Ipswich, shot cross, Chair was very good when he came on, and loves to run at defenders who are running away, (Ipswich last 20 minutes).
I agree Clive in specific situations McLaren has to be more confident of his youth players, these are the opportunities to get them on for 20 minutes or so.
Very professional performance though, great to see Pav in this form.
|QPR blow Forest hoodoo out of the water – Report|
Yes a wonderful result, (listened on the Andy Sinton show, commentary is very good).
I have been going their so long I honestly cant remember how many times I have seen us lose there, its a wonderful feeling and I am so pleased for the likes of Furlong, (god he's good in the air!) and Leistner , wonderful performance.
I have been critical of McLaren particularly over opportunities for the youngsters but we had three out there Saturday, and although Eze had one of his quieter days he still worked his socks off, Lumley, (you've said it all Clive) and Furlong will be first choice now.
Well done our away support, noise was very loud, chant about Robinson came through very loud and very clear on the match commentary!
Thanks Clive, a match report to match the days events!
|QPR puncture the Pulisball in welcome return to form - Report|
Great report Clive!
A wonderful completely Monsooned afternoon of vintage Rangers football, I turned up two weeks ago really looking forward to taking Hull apart, (which they then did to us) and left very pissed off.
This was a complete surprise, great pre-match pint consumption, terrific game and then more pints, what a day, very good atmosphere, fans excellent despite the second half being played underwater, (Aquaman might scape into Middleborough back four, but would need bulking up).
We all were disappointed at Cousins selection but he proved us wrong, yes the best game I have seen him play for the club, lovely to see Leistner put that thug Hugill in his pocket, (no small achievement ), god knows how Furlong lasted 90 minutes in that weather, another great performance.
Clive your probably right, but I think Furlongs footing went as some turf went for a walk underneath him as he went to head the ball, (Beckamesque penalty style), whatever plan Boro had for our right back position, got a nasty shock when Darnell started winning every ball in the air, nice one Darnell!
|QPR salute surprise hero Rangel in Stoke draw - Report|
Its very encouraging that we are beginning to relax and take control of games away from home, extremely important that Eze continues to be allowed to express himself, (which he was).
I watched Brentford v Middlesbrough the other night and we will really need a decent ref for that game, even by Pullis standards he has really put together a well organised collection of thugs. Cameron and Lynch will have to be at their best.
|Hoos talks Warren Farm, FFP, Loftus Road – Interview|
Good interview with Lee, no hint of Andrew ("would you like another slice of cake Aaron?") Marr here.
I think Lee has done an excellent job in very, very, difficult circumstances and deserves great praise for his determination to see the training ground through to a successful conclusion .
However...... I really don't buy the explanation for the Blackpool game, and appreciate he is just toeing the company line here.
You would only have to have seen Scowen's short violent cameo appearance that night to appreciate what the dressing room thought of the managers selection/game plan, for that evening, but appreciate the CEO money man is not responsible for team selection.
I was also very surprised at the comments about Loftus Road, one of the most valuable pieces of real estate in West London, its interesting that Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all looked at staying in their borough and all elected to develop the existing site, Lee correctly explains that going upwards is a non-starter, but he must be the only property developer in this part of the world who develops upwards, I would suggest a quick walk around Holland Park, Notting Hill gate, and Paddington and look downwards at the palatial underworld being dug into basements all along the central Line, no problem for us as the Uxbridge Road and M-40 Westway boundary's mean no railway line problems, (Westfield haven't appeared to have any problems).
And all that nice soil and hard core, could pop up the M-40 to our new training ground to level the pitches!
|Wells off the mark as QPR move into early contention – Report|
Yes, it was a very good night at Loftus Road, we have definitely hit on a shape and (kiss of death here), the players all seem to know what they are supposed to be doing.
We also now seem to have a "steely edge" with some very uncompromising tackles from (as mentioned), Rangel, Luomo and Lynch,(another good performance), great to see the goals go in.
Eze is just the reason I turn up and part with my cash, amazing.
Great match report, great to see the banter and humour back with the crowd as well.
