OH dear! It just goes on..we played against a very poor team today.They had only one game plan & stuck to it throughout the match & it worked..mainly because Rangers did not come up with a way of dealing with it or indeed a game plan of their own.
I was so pissed off near the end I was almost hoping we would lose so that Hughes would get the sack & we could get the agony over at this stage rather than at some inevitable point in the future.
Has there ever been such a talented squad in the Premiership which just cannot win games? How on earth can a Manager fail to motivate & organise so many skilled players? We are now a joke for every other fan and club. Who can we beat? I am beginning to fear the worst in the Southampton game. OK we had enough chances to win today but so did Reading. The result was fair but pathetic when you consider their resources with ours. I reckon Messi would fail to score in our team because the Manager would put him in defence or something equally stupid. Roll on the tumbril!

Well if this is the so-called 'stability' that we need by sticking with Hughes, then Id rather sack him and have chaos. Like Bill, and for the first time ever supporting QPR in 35 years, I actually wanted us to loose so we could get the pain over with and move on. What a sorry state of affairs we've come to. If the 'stability ' merchants can tell me where a win is going to come from, this season, let alone in the next few weeks, I'll throw in my hat with Hughes.

Well at least there was no SWP or Park!
But in the first hour hour we had maybe just 2 mins when we were on top and Reading had 58 mins! Hence the booing as the team went off at half time?
Then we scored and the tempo increased by 100%. QPRs effort and resolve increased 500% and for most of the remaining 30 mins we were by far the better team. Had Taarabt not been so selfish/showboating on a couple of occasions then we could easily have won.
But once again it was a case of we should have won but didn't win.
Forgetting where we are (bottom and winless), its seems unbelievable that in a home game against a team who has not won this season and shipped 7 goals earlier in the week, we were unable to score more than one goal and unable to win.
No doubt Tony F will be full of praise on Twitter and I'll back his decision on Hughes, whatever it may be even if personally I dont agree. BUT its plain for all to see. Hughes is not the man he claims to be. His shortcoming have been exposed at QPR and he has shown himself to be an ineffective manager.
There is something fundamentally wrong at QPR of this bunch of very talented players, play so poorly and preside over the most unsuccessful start we have had to any Premiership season ever. Even the 'out of their depth' team of '69 won 3 games in their relegation season!!!

Doughnut ,I started going to Loftus Road in 1965,there has been some low points along the way but I cannot remember a season that appeared to promise so much and delivered zilch (so far). I am no fan of millionaires but I almost feel sorry for Tony Fernades. He is a new boy compared to you & me but as the owner he has opened his wallet & done his bit . We pay hundreds ,he has paid millions, we have all been let down by managerial incompetance . I hope he has kept enough dosh back to tempt Rafa Benitz!

Not good enough I'm afraid. Can't believe we r struggling so badly. I'd say a lot of money was won on Gorkss scoring today. Bookies will soon have us in their bottom three especially after results this weekend.

Talented squad? Yes the midfield is extremely good and played well today but defense? Bosingwe had an absolute stinker and what was all that dancing about? Did he also have a sulk when he stopped running back? The attack is not great either. Cisse good in patches, hopefully will improve with games, confidence and familiarity with Granero, Tarabt etc etc, but he also has to have decent service from wide positions. Traore not bad but Bosingwe very poor and Onuoha also one footed and chippy,floaty balls which give the attack little chance.
All that said, and even though we were both very poor and very good, I felt that we would have won but for their keeper who was excellent.
Keep the faith and where is Keiron Dyer?

Clearly a poor result and again poor defending for the goal when we had a total of 4 chances to clear the ball. However, a much improved 2nd half performance has left me not knowing what to think - not total despair but still lots to worry about. Taraabt was inspirational and hard working, covering masses of ground. But, many of our attacks appeared to be individual efforts rather than working as a team. I thought the midfield did not play well today - I don't see why Faurlin is not playing with Granero and Diakite. Nevertheless, relieved to that SWP was given a rest . And for goodness sake, our defenders need some heading practice - did we win any from Reading corners?

The good: starting selection, lots of attacking opportunities, some very good near-misses, better discipline. The bad: service and shot quality still not good enough so too many wasted opportunities. The ugly: defending set pieces, yet again. Honestly don't know whether the bad and the ugly are due to poor management or over-rated players. Probably both. I'm conflicted about this result. Disappointed and yet encouraged. We will score goals but if we continue to defend like this it won't matter. The set piece defending will be surely tested at Stoke. And I have no idea whether MH, his assistants, or our players can do anything about it.

Time to go Hughes! This just isn't working. I just hope that Fernandes has a suitable replacement lined up. The team lacked spirit, cohesion and fight for over an hour yesterday, bar some exceptions notably Taarabt, Nelsen, Diakité and Granero. I expected them to come flying out of the traps.
Frankly I'm sick of the sight of Hughes and the ex-Chelsea keeper's (who's name I can't spell) miserable faces on my TV screen every time they zoom in on our bench. One advantage of being at the game is that you avoid this. Also sick of the sight of a more and more disappointed looking Faurlin going to waste, what was it Tony said when Faurlin was on the road to recovery - it'll be like making a 15 million signing.
Just read that the genius and sound sleeping Hughes has pinpointed an area for improvement after yesterday's game - defending set pieces!! I think that a career move into marketing matresses for insomniacs would be most advisable. Rant over.

Too many players turned in inadequate performances. Yet we managed to draw against a side who had 1 attempt on target in 90 minutes and very few attempts from open play.
The foundations are there but the intensity has to step up all over the park.
10 games in, no wins. Make no mistake we are already involved in a battle to avoid going down with Reading and Southampton.
