It was a nailbiter but thought we were just about worth the win. Proper forward play by the two newbies and much better organisation by the defence and Lumley very assured, always talking to his back line. much better.
Also 99.9% certain I saw Idris Elba outside the ground afterwards next to my car. He was absolutely off his trolley with a couple of mates. Is he an R?
Wasn't at the game on Saturday as on hols. But am i right in thinking Hogan was inducted? Much as I thought he was a nice enough guy, he was a pretty lightweight footballer. I think the Club might be full for the time being if Hogan is getting in there.
Anyone go to the Hammersmith gig last week. After a massively excessive night at the Stones the previous night i was flagging for this gig and not really wanting to go. Ended up seeing something that is in my top 10 gigs of all time...truly astonishing. Man's a genius.
Could've played for another 90 minutes and we wouldn't have scored. Boro were good but they won't get many easier games. Tactics all over the place, to the point i couldn't actually work out what they other than lump it to Smith at every opporunity.
Freeman was quiet today and so no creativity at all. Luongo hesitant. And don't get me started on Washington. Only Robinson put in any kind of performance.
Did anyone sat that end got an opinion on the awarded penalty? Looked nothing in at all from where i sat. Despite that ref was terrible today, really poor.
Separately, why the hell do a section of our support boo Hoilett. He wasn't our greatest player but was instrumental in giving most of us our greatest QPR moment in the playoff final. For that alone, the booing was just flipping embarrassing.
Game of two halves. We looked tidy in the first half and definitely edged it against a very ordinary Leeds but of course our hapless strikers never felt like they were going to score.
Whatever the half time team talks were they had the opposite effect on both teams, Leeds looked up for it, we stopped pressing in midfield and there was only going to be one team that was going to win. Holloways tactics at 0-2 with 20 mins still left on the clock was to play 3-2-5 which was comical as there was no supply to the five. Playground stuff.
Down to 19th in the table, 1 point out of 18 and a an ugly series of december fixtures. Living the dream.
