Immensely frustrating to watch, yet somehow inevitable. Played the better football, had most possession, created most chances. Picked the side that most posters on this site wanted. Still came away empty handed. Where do we go from here?

Yes I was happier with the selection today but would have preferred Hill & Mackie to have been in the mix. This more ballanced side has more or less evolved rather than be chosen by the manager.All other teams picked up a point or 2 today so we slip further adrift. I expect to see MH go during the course of the week & if not after the Southampton game unless we win by a bundle.Good to see a bit of backbone come into our play. I guess that despite poor morale some of the players are now playing for personal pride.

Hughes has just got to stick with it - and hope for some luck before the elbow
His team was the best poss today ( Diakete, Granero, faurlin together)and set up tactically ok
However if we are playing with one up front we need one of the three mids to do a Kevin Nolan and bomb forward to add support in the centre.
Seems like tempramentally each of our mids prefer to stay centre park and pick a pass. Problem is - to whom? Suggest Diakete is best placed to do a Vierra and add some support to Cisse with strong runns from mid.
Sparky- you're hangin by a thread. Hope your luck turns

Can't see how anyone can see that as the best possible team. We lack bodies in the box and some threat in front of goal, yet persist with a lone striker. The very brief period that Zamora and Cisse played together last season they looked fantastic. Yet Hughes doesn't seem keen on that possibility at all. Faurlin, Granero and Diakite look great passing sideways, I'd rather have players who stick the ball in the net.

Gee a goal conceded from a set piece the usual lack of fortune, the same old Hughes blurb, the same old relegation ingredients, please Southampton score a late equaliser next week and give the R's board enough spine to rid us off this amateur hour shite ! How grim does this has to get before someone at the top makes the call on this "management" team ! Nineteen games without a win ! For crying out loud !

We had the greater possession yet come the 18 yard box we were gutless, as we have been all season.
Taarabt currently fans MOM. No way!
Once again his selfishness cost us at least one goal. Does he ever look up to see who is around him to pass to? Does he ever stop showboating? Always trying to be too clever.
I haven't heard the after match press conferences but I am sure it will be full of the usual excuses. I have been a supporter of Hughes throughout but enough is enough. Hughes is utterly clueless on how to get this bunch of players playing as a team.
There is no way Tony F is going to sack him this week. He would look completely stupid in light of all his recent comments. But I feel anything but a win next week against Southampton will see him go

Melaka, who do you think set up the chance for Granero?
MelakaRanger added 00:39 - Nov 11
True at times he has a spark of brilliance but far too often he is selfish and doesn't think. He should have scored last week but chose to be 'clever'. He should have scored this week but chose to be 'clever'.
If we were in the top 10 you could perhaps excuse such behavior but rooted to the bottom we need team players not showboating individuals.
We will only get out of this mess if we play as a team, so far Adel and regrettably many others do not play as members of a team.

Lots of possession means nothing if we can't create scoring opportunities and then finish them. This team has looked unconvincing all season in the final third. The result is particularly annoying given that MH finally fielded the side that we wanted to see.

Agree with Melaka on Taarabt, Bosingwa frustrates the life out of me he gives the ball away so often and I doubt the chairmans "total support" speech will feature again for the current managment group. I'd like to see us get Raheem Stirling back or someone of similar talent and age and build a team round them, to many playing for their retirement to do QPR any good at the moment.
