|QPR back from the dead with random Swansea trouncing – Report|
Really didn't see that coming, was worried that Scowen was going to take the Ref out before half time.
Yes, this was the tactic everyone used against Lee Cook, I remember Coventry rotating on Lee one Saturday, finally the Coventry centre half took Cook out with an elbow, and the Ref, (possibly Styles?) booked him for diving.
Manning great again, just gets on with it, good sound performance from Lumley.
Cheers Clive great report.
|Spot the difference, QPR annihilated at Norwich - Report|
Every word, I'm particularly worried about Eustace and the "Green Shirts" spending another minute at our club, when you sack the team leader, and his "team" were all appointed by him, you just cant let them stay at the club, I'm guessing they are creating a very negative atmosphere on the training ground, (which was clearly reflected on the pitch at Norwich).
Cameron has obviously thrown in the towel, and (contract permitting) should be returned immediately, what do you do with Hemud ? again can we get Oteh back?
If we are going to go down, lets go down with some pride, with players (who as you say Clive), have some pride in the shirt they are wearing .
I watched Lynch in the second half against Bolton for fifteen minutes, each time in possession, he allowed the ball to drop to either foot and launched it thirty or forty yards in the direction he was facing, some into the Ellerslie Road stand, some into the South Africa Road stand, and a couple into the front of the Loft, twice a hand went up from Bright, pointing to 10 yards in front of him, he might as well have been pointing at the toilets.
In terms not only in respect of his attitude, his lack of discipline, his lack of awareness of where his own players are, (never mind the bloody oppositions!), I don't think I've ever seen a worse central defender at our club in over fifty years watching the club.
Thanks Clive, it all needed to be said.
|McClaren suffers long term pain after short term gain – Column|
I hope the powers that be read your article, and think long and hard before the next appointment.
Our younger players will not have a better chance to break into the first team than the start of next season, we cannot make the same mistakes again.
Your very accurate summary of McLarens time here, is particularly pertinent when talking about Wells, as described he had missed open goals at Wigan away, Bristol City away,( before and after half time), and then missed the penalty against Birmingham, (I'm guessing a lot of this was mental exhaustion on his part from being played to death by McLaren), but we had a player who scores penalties for fun,(Oteh), but who had been moved out to the bench at Walsall, surely we could have kept him as cover/replacement for the non-moving/injured Hemud?
If the kids had stayed, (I know hindsight), we would have had cover for our centre forward, and Chair could have allowed Freeman to be rested, and then we could perhaps have got to 48-50 points, (Rotherham and Bolton at home), and then stuck the kids in for the last six or seven games when we were safe.
Blackpool in the cup was the warning sign that McLaren was not prepared to carry out his mandate to introduce our younger players into the first team, mind you just about everybody pointed this out at the time!
Thanks Clive! (have you ever considered management? (you're allowed to drink alcohol).
|McClaren hanging by a thread after Bolton debacle – Report|
Yes, fully agree with above, thanks for putting time into recording the bloody awfulness that is going on at our club, yes, worse than Rotherham, (that surely is impossible).
I have really tried to get my head round what is going wrong, and what's happened to the team, is it a dressing room problem? is their a problem with the loan players?
Hemud has obviously been a very expensive mistake from day one, Wells has been played to death, Cameron, yes good, but have a look at any stat analysis on players age and likelihood of injury in the Championship.
I've no idea whether the above is relevant or not.
His treatment of Bright this season has shown poor judgement, (its a credit to Bright that he has survived McLaren's time here).
Yes Clive that's it for McLaren, Norwich, and Sheffield Wednesday away? don't think so.
I'm glad I share your opinion about the necessity of alcohol before watching Championship football!
|QPR plumb new depths in Rotherham debacle - Report|
Aanotyer great report Clive!
Holding head in hands when Bright moved inside, Sunday morning pub manager would not have done that!!!!!!!
We then decided it was black humour time!
I think the only reason I'm still going is to read Clive's match report, nice touch to mention Luongp as well, he kept going, ( and may will do so at the end of the season)
Cheers Clive grim times, again
|Boredom in its purest form – Report|
God that was grim!
Might be up their with the Tuesday night Ipswich game, (a few years ago), and a truly appalling 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace around Christmas (also a few years ago).
if I was a Brighton fan I would be very worried if Glen Murray gets injured, has Hemud ever actually played in the Premier League?
How can someone with zero mobility operate in the Premier League?
As usual very, very funny Clive, Shodipo 73 minutes? really, really? against 10 men!!!!
|Does this sound right to you? Preview|
Great piece of journalism Clive.
So many great clubs, with so many fans, surely we deserve better.
As you often mention, we have so much to learn from the German club model.
|Watford bring curtain down on QPR's cup hopes - Report|
Yes, removal of Pav was mistake, which pretty much every one around me picked up on, as mentioned, position of Eze also wrong decision, surprised as this was something Holloway learned the hard way last season, (particularly in away games),with 15 left on clock he had to go centre at front, (not centre forward and run at middle of Watford defence.
As you say Clive mistake was partially corrected by bringing Bright on.
Hemud- something seriously not right fitness wise, shouldn't have been on pitch, closer in Eze was a better bet to gain free kick/penalty.
Great night, great atmosphere, wonderful support, god knows how they kept going! (players).
Another great report Clive.
|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.
