I said this after the Birmingham game but we really need a proper song for Chair. He keeps winning us games and trundling sheepishly round the pitch afterwards while we don’t sing his praises because we don’t have a good one.
Thought his mental cameo deserved a thread - came on like man possessed, just what we needed, put in two or three proper tackles and buzzed about up front when Albert and Charlie and Willock looked dead on their feet. Was really impressed. Then scored a pen.
Sunny crisp day, full house, packed away end, Rangers riding their luck for once, Eze/Chair/Bright taking the piss, saved pen, red card, Wells playing like a defender but up front, new teenage centre back rampaging forward, early kick off meaning bonus post-match pub time, Brentford and Fulham mates happy as well, Joy Division songs ringing out...
That Luton mistake was shocking and he’s been subject to a lot of muttering about his place, but I thought today he made a few tough saves look easy, caught a couple of efforts that a lot of other keepers would have palmed out, and best of all played some great, risky balls out all game long.
Crackling atmosphere, full ground, needle all round Shepherd’s Bush beforehand, loads of faces in the ground I haven’t seen for years, glorious weather, and then we turn up and play like that. Best first half from us in many years.
It’s no exaggeration to say we could have been 6 or 7 up at half time. Eze was absolutely imperious could and should have had 3 or 4 goals, and at one point did a double drag back the equal of anything Adel pulled off. Luton were totally blown away and out on their feet until Lumley’s brain fart.
Yeah yeah the second half was a bit different. But this team have got something about them and when they’re on song it’s something to watch.
Possibly my favourite moment at Loftus Road for many years
The big man was immense today. Great fun that second half, nice to see some smiles around the place again. Feels like this team is coming together now, hope we can keep the departures to a minimum and look forward to next season
