Please can someone have a LOUD word (or MORE) in Begovic's ear
at 11:43 4 Mar 2024

I think it's time people get fined for posting nonsense like this.
He is not on 32k per week.

Martí Cifuentes.
at 22:15 3 Mar 2024

As a club, we make shocking managerial appointments. In the last 30 years we've had God knows how many managers, but only Gerry, Ollie, Warnock, Warbs and hopefully Marti can really be described as at least 'good' appointments (and Ollie was pretty much because no one else would (understandably) touch it, so not much credit to be given there).
Let's hope Marti beats them all, and stays for a while. Personally, I'll be shocked if he's still our manager at the start of the season after next, but I'm going to enjoy the ride. I hope.

I love a caveat.

I’d argue whether we stay up or go down, Millwall away was something of a watershed moment for Marti and the club. We may end up being pleased it happened.

Cifuentes on Today's Win (Leicester)
at 23:55 2 Mar 2024

I don't think so.
It was a poor result and performance, but they more than made up for it since. If we go down, and it's still a very big possibility with the way all the teams at the bottom are finding wins, it won't be that game that did it.

I can't see the gain from it. But fans will believe what they want to believe. Some fans genuinely think Begovic is on 38k per week.

My summer with Jamie – Preview
at 13:49 2 Mar 2024

Effing hell Clive, that was brilliant. Possibly best ever.
Blackstock absolutely deserved GOTS though, sorry. It was a crucial goal, not the third in a 3-1 win, and, plus, it had Nygaard's assist, which was almost as remarkable as his Leicester goal, so that's a good consolation for him ;)

Loftus Road Walk Out Music
at 10:23 1 Mar 2024

Do we walk out to London Calling? I thought that was played the song before the walk out?

Also, here's a thing: whatever anyone chooses, minimum 50% of the crowd, more like 80%, will be fuming.

I don't think anyone's asking him to be Ederson and ping a 30 yard ball directly into a player's stride. He's only being asked to pass it 5 yards. All he has to do it is do it quicker, and don't do it when a player has 3 opponents converging on him.

Well, SS is good if you're not at a game, and Stelling made it great fun.
As for this sort of stuff, the kids will probably watch both - one on the TV, one on a handheld. I imagine we all did stuff as youngsters that older people thought was mad.

Goals Conceded
at 12:37 27 Feb 2024

I find it very hard to believe he is on anything like the figures being bandied about - it doesn't really make sense in the context of what we were doing last summer, and finding a half decent keeper at this level for a year isn't that hard. I think people need to look beyond it. It's a one year deal anyway.
Could be wrong though!

Lee Wallace tidbit from Barbs
at 10:27 27 Feb 2024

yeah probably worth clarifying i think that Barbs is talking about Hall in the first bit and then Wallace in the second? I don't think Wallace ever refused to play.

Whether we stay up or not, I suspect a new keeper will be very high on Marti's wish list.

at 13:52 26 Feb 2024

Exactly this.
And the keeper also needs to be thinking, chess-like, about the pass after his. If he gives it to someone, do they have an option too? This is on the outfield players as well of course. Pedro also spot on about how slow the three of them were. Get a goal kick, and they just stand there for ages waiting for Rotherham to mark up. Pass the bloody thing and get on with it!

If you don't think this team is one of the worst QPR teams of the last 40 years you haven't been watching long. This is a team struggling to avoid relegation to League One. Pretty much by definition that's one of the poorest teams of the last 40 years, before we even take into account we'd won 1 game at home in a year when we beat Stoke. So yeh, really.

I have no issue with anyone questioning Marti's decisions, of course I don't. I've been vocal against loads of managers. It's the stuff like 'stumbled on' and 'bizarre' for perfectly rational decisions that make it condescending.

We've lost 1 in 7. Some might suggest your criticisms of his rotation are misplaced.

Yep, the VDV ruling was insane. Not a single person would've complained about that goal being given. Why are we ruloing out goals no one is even appealing over? It's crazy, this desperation to find a way to rule out every goal scored.

I mean, we're all entitled to our opinion but your condescension towards a manager that has basically dragged one of the worst QPR teams in the last 40 years to having a shot at avoiding relegation is pretty breathtaking.
Field should be disappointed - he's a good professional.
Worth noting that we created more and arguably better chances to score in the first half than the second, too, with their keeper making 4 very decent saves.
His 'best' starting XI will change depending on what he wants and who we're facing, as it always has done.

I think Hayden has been excellent for us, but I don't know if he was feeling under the weather or what, but he was pretty poor yesterday and looked well off the pace to me. Wasn't surprised he was hooked.

Maybe to you, but then you haven't worked with the players all week, you don't have access to their fitness stats and you don't know them - you don't even know that Hodge came on as a sub in the game you refer to, for starters.
Managers and coaches always have reasons for the decisions they make - as others have said, Andersen and Field were sick in the week and so if they worked on patterns of play for this game, they wouldn't have been part of that - hardly bizarre to therefore rule them out, particularly with Colback having a rest last week. Dykes has scored 5 goals all season, don't think it's particularly bizarre for him not to start. I didn't see much wrong with Frey's fitness yesterday.

tbf, he made 4 very good saves first half, particularly the headers from Frey and Cook.
I thought Norf's Danny Coyne stuff was going to be repeated.
