|That first half is why we go to football|
at 19:08 14 Sep 2019
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.
A happy hoop tonight

Just been wondering, did anyone else order one of these, and have they received it?
I ordered a couple back in February for presents but they haven't turned up almost three months later, is it time to start moaning to the club?

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
|Is the QPR Plus stream actually going to work tonight? |

It's been broken for me for the last three games now, has anyone else who had problems heard anything back from them about actually fixing it?
If it's broken again going to be demanding my money back in full

It hasn't worked at all on any browser apart from Chrome for weeks, for the Barnsley game it didn't even work on that until 80 mins, and now this week once again log in and get the familiar "the license has expired blah blah" error.
I'm not an idiot on computers so have tried all sorts of workarounds but none of them work.
for the money they're charging they're having a laugh.

Going to be a weird one.
What do we reckon? Muted and depressed? Angry and hurling abuse? A show of backs to the wall togetherness? I'm currently swinging between all three, going to have to get to the pub earlier than normal...

A 4-1 doing at home to Brentford is never good, Caulker looks a long way from ever playing in a decent team again, and that first half an hour was some historically woeful defending, but came away from tonight (OK I walked out at 4-1) not feeling too bad for some reason.
We played a complete second XI tonight against a half decent team, and predictably for 30 minutes we had no f--king idea what we were doing and we were 3-0 down. Caulker completely to blame for the first, terrible defending from a corner for the second, keeper should easily have snaffled the third by steaming off htis line.
But after that, we got into the game, we showed spirit, heads didn't go down, and until they got the fourth we looked dangerous. We really should have got back to one goal difference, and if we had Brentford looked fragile as f--k and I reckon we would have got a result.
Chair looked really useful, Sylla played well, Pav did his usual, we were piling in crosses, Freeman did his usual thing when he came on, there was plenty there to show there's some depth in this squad, and I reckon our first team would have won that game easily. Can't wait for the league game.
Really surprising crowd and atmosphere as well, shame the team couldn't live up to it.
I dunno, maybe I'm just so used to us being s--t in the cup, but I always thought we'd lose this game anyway so for our reserve team (which it is), then there's enough in that squad (Chair/Furlong/Sylla/Ariel) and way more character than we had 12 months ago.

Turned down a chance to join us as a youth and is playing for England in the egg-chasing later
Just heard on the radio his Dad's name is Scotland. Well played

I quite enjoyed that, although every single person I usually go with didn't turn up and it was f--king freezing by the end. Looking round the ground seems quite a few did the same. With all the locals giving it a miss you really noticed how many Scandis we've got in our crowd these days, every other bloke in the Ellerslie sounded Swedish/Norwegian.
Anyway, we actually changed our system and played 4-3-3/4-5-1 with Chery-Sylla-Washington up front and went for it, in an understated JFH kind of way. I hope we stick with it at home: we had plenty of width, put in a lot of dangerous crosses, and with three in midfield we were picking up a lot of the second balls which we haven't done for months. Chery's not a winger, but the whole team had a lot more shape and cutting edge with him out there and Washington put in his usual 100% effort huff-n-puff Mackie style performance.
Ned had a great game marking their number nine who looked a real handful, but didn't really get a sniff. Luongo fired into a load of tackles and set up the goal with a brilliant cross, good finish by Cilla as well. Smithies pulled off another couple of superb saves, the one from a one-on-one was world-class.
The young Finnish Yank lad at left back looks decent, Fat Lee Tomlin was targetting him all second half but he put in some good tackles and got forward well. Just as well, as our other three left backs are all injured now, Lynch looked gutted when he went off and hope it isn't a bad one. Cousins was pretty anonymous and collapsed in the second half as well, so Henry will be back again soon.
It wasn't blood-pumping stuff, but Bristol City have been dangerous this season and that's a good win for me. Plus proves that we don't have to play 4-2-3-1 all the bloody time.

For the first time, AFC Wimbledon are above MK Dons in the league.
|What a great day out at the football|
at 19:42 7 Aug 2016
They don't come along too often these days, so let's make sure we enjoy the good ones when we can...
Beautiful weather, decent atmosphere for a f--king Sunday morning, a Rangers team looking fit and sharp and together for the first time in years, Polter looks like he's really developing into a right royal pain in the arse for any defence (my Leeds mate was well impressed with him), Luongo was like an Aussie Kante in the effort and yards covered, we actually passed it inside to a central midfielder in dangerous positions every now and then (again for the first time in years), Caulker and Hall looked composed, Chery looked a proper number 10, and one of our youth team made a decent debut and got deservedly clapped off.
Still a long way to go, and Leeds were pretty sh*te, but really enjoyed today and can see some cautious hope for the future. Haven't said that for a while!
|Another good deed done by the club|

Two seasons ago my family and mates were unceremoniously turfed out of the seats we'd had season tickets for for decades - in my Dad and his brothers' case, almost 40 years. We were told it was to build a press box at the back of the Ellerslie stand to comply with Premier League regulations.
As it turned out our old seats weren't knocked down at all, but had been reserved for "media guests". So for the last two years we've had to watch a load of disinterested tourists, or, more often, nobody at all, sit in our old seats while we got shoved into new ones nearer Q Block.
Anyway yesterday got a call from the club saying we can move back next season, which has made for some very happy Rangers fans. Whoever made that decision, good on you

Life hangs on the thinnest of margins... If we had beat Fulham twice this season instead of rolling over, we'd now be three points off the play-offs with all to play for, and they'd be in the bottom three and the table would have looked so much nicer.
