Centre Midfield
at 17:12 9 Nov 2019

Posted this on the fred, but it's probably a topic of it's own.

"I think our defensive problems stem from our lack of control in midfield. We're not dominating possession, teams often run right through our midfield like drugged-up streakers, and if we bought Moore, Maldini, McGrath and Cafú they'd be under pressure too."

What I wouldn't give for a controlling midfield player. Anyone seen Faurlin recently?

Kit Sizes For Kids
at 11:27 4 Nov 2019

I'm buying a Rangers jersey for my nephew as we continue to steer him away from his Dad's club, Man Utd.

The top sizes are weird. He's 12 and a typical size for his age. Does anyone know if Errea kits fit like the chart below, or if they come up a bit big/small/long/short etc?

Thanks.

SIZE
2YXS (age 5-6) : chest - 28" / length from shoulder 18"
YXS (age 7-8) : chest - 32" / length from shoulder 20"
XXS (age 9-10) : chest - 34" / length from shoulder 22"
XS (age 11-12) : chest - 36" / length from shoulder 24"

Very good. Worth looking up.

Extremely honest, though possibly should have mentioned that the system played at first didn't suit us.

Just back, off the Stream

An odd game. Six goals, eight bookings, but strangely bloodless.

We are hugely creative. Eze, Chair, Wells and Manning destroyed Blackburn in the first half. The back four had an easy day, but we still conceded two. The first a needless penalty, the second a combination of standing off Dack, standing off Bennett and then not picking up Armstrong. I think we play too narrow at the back, personally. Combine this with our lack of height at set pieces and a goalie as short as Kenny and Roberts were when they got fivers off their parents for their Holy Communion and you begin to wonder where the elusive clean sheet will come from.

Still, 4-2 against a team that’s as welcome as a taxman with bad breath and it’s a good day.

I thought that Chair had a fine first half, as did Eze, Manning and Wells. I’m not sure anyone overly shone in a second half that seemed to feature no midfielders whatsoever. I love control. We all have our fetishes, mine is control. Today, we had none. Nor did they. Whether in a first half dominated by Eze, Manning, Wells and Chair playing on a pool table that sloped badly towards the Ellerslie or a second half where most players played as if they had flowers in their hair, there was no control whatsoever.

We scored four, they scored two, we were denied a penalty, they did an autopsy on us for a goal that was thankfully disallowed. Take that, take this, he said, she said, potayto, potato, tomayto, tomato, let’s call the whole thing off.

4-2. Lovely football. Can’t pick my man of the match.

Even for a control freak like me, this is gorgeous.

BFG
at 17:27 21 Sep 2019

Have to credit Warburton on this one.

Problem - chosen tactics demand a high line and BFG's pace isn't suited to that.
Possible Solution 1 - sell BFG
Possible Solution 2 - play him anyway and get slaughtered with the over-the-top ball
Possible Solution 3 - play him but drop the line, and all other lines and reduce the attacking ability of Eze, Chair, Wells and Hugill.

Actual Solution - keep BFG, play him, place a centre-back either side of him so the over-the-top ball won't get us, and push our lines up regardless, wing-backs can add to Eze, Chair, Wells and Hugill.

It's worked really well for us of late.

Favourite Cheese
at 15:39 9 Sep 2019

Time we resurrected one of our favourite threads.

I was told I was lactose-intolerant (among other intolerances) many years ago and had to cut out all cheese. Now, as a result of minding myself and my diet for years I can eat cheese again.

So, currently in the Pyrenees, I’m enjoying a glass of Corbieres and some Roquefort. Amazing combination.

I’m saying it now. Roquefort is my favourite.

Mind you, I’m now able to sample the LFW suggestions!

Favourite All-Time QPR XI
at 20:12 20 Aug 2019

Not the best XI, but your favourite, the ones you loved, had a little crush on, stuck up for when they hit a rocky patch, the ones that could never, ever do any wrong, no matter what.

Mine:-

-------------------Seaman----------------
Bardsley---Parker---Maddix---Wilson
------------Wilkins---Faurlin-------------
Bowles---------Taarabt---------Thomas
----------------------Les-------------------

That only took me an entire train trip from Dublin to Cork to decide.

Edit: Gallen's gone!

Idea from another thread for a Summer LFW Thread...

Not stuff you hate, stuff you just never had the love for, understood, saw the big commotion about...


Me? Never got The Clash. Ya, I can see the talent. Ya, I can see the coolness. Ya, I know there's a Rangers connection...but...I just don't GET them the way loads of you do. It's like I'm missing a gene!

And also, I never got Ice Cream. Tried it again yesterday. Don't see the fuss.

You are Forced to Emigrate.....
at 12:39 14 May 2019

Question:

You are forced to emigrate for one year. No choice. You've got to go.

But part of the sweetener is that you get a free season ticket for another team.

What City would you move to, and what team would you go and see?

1) Football
2) Non-Football

I've thought about this and my answers are:

1) Amsterdam, and Ajax. Museums, architecture, laid-back people, great football and watching Ajax Academy train. And spliff.

2) Boston, and the Red Sox. Imagine watching all that twisted angst up close. It would be hysterically funny. Plus I love the Sox.

Simply, a thread about the non-QPR game you're watching right now.

There will be spoilers!

Me, I'm watching Betis 0-3 Barca.

Messi with a gorgeous free kick goal, then a lovely one-two with Suarez then a Suarez and cool, low finish.

I honestly don't know what I'll do when Messi retires...
