North and South League

Perhaps the best thing to do would be to drop next season altogether and start again August 2021.

Finish this season and the European football by December and then have a long break until the European Championship in June 2021.

Maybe the tournament would be better for quality with players not tired but on the other hand they may be not match fit with five months off.

Having said that I am sure the biggest clubs could play tournaments around the world during those five months to keep the top players fit instead of doing it in July 2021.

One major drawback would be the smaller clubs probably can't afford to miss a season with lost income.

Playoffs
at 21:02 7 Mar 2020

The last three could be awkward if Luton can still stay up, Millwall could make play offs and West Brom could win the title.

However, if Luton down by then, Millwall out of play off picture and Albion already won the title then they might be good fixtures.

Ifs, buts and maybes for now.

Forest are a counter attack team so if you sit back against them they struggle to break you down and it worked for us today.

Extended offish highlights QPR v Stoke

Looks like Sky Sports Football have woken up. They are showing the 15 minutes programme at 1945 on Thursday. Better late than never.

Extended offish highlights QPR v Stoke
at 15:34 16 Feb 2020

On the subject of highlights, I have looked at the Sky Sports Football channel, and they appear to have 15 minutes of each championship game on all afternoon with one notable exception.

Has our result yesterday been retrospectively declared null and void or did we all dream we played Stoke?

The fact there are no 15 minutes highlights of our game suggests it did not take place, just like BT Sports refusal to show our Swansea fixture in their highlights package of the third round of the FA Cup.

That is a properly professional point lads

I was surprised to learn that Cardiff have gone nine games unbeaten in league and cup since we put six past them, which just goes to show, that just because someone looked poor against us can be misleading. So on that basis there is still hope for Swansea to make the play-offs no matter how poorly they played against us.

In other news, Bristol City's two strikers acquired in the last transfer window, have both scored on their home debuts...

As we rarely win at Swansea this was a missed opportunity as they were there for the taking. It is unfortunate for us that we were in a bad spell of form that has taken some of the self belief away going into the game.

Charlton getting an unexpected win at Forest did not improve my mood. Coming into the business end of the season is not the time to stop scoring goals.

So that's the season over.

There is more than one way of sacking off a game it doesn't necessarily come as a result of team selection. The more obvious interpretation was the attitude displayed by the team who looked in the mood against Swansea but then inexplicably looked half arsed against Wednesday. What brought about the mood change where they looked like they couldn't be bothered, a trait which we seem to display year after year?

The stench of complacency
at 17:41 1 Feb 2020

We know Bristol City are not that good. They lost 3-0 to Luton and 4-0 at home to Brentford. Still we have kindly donated 6 points to them this season as they are becoming another team, like Brentford, Fulham, Blackburn, Forest, Preston, whom we seem to lose too as an annual ritual.

Wigan's unexpected win at Leeds now means we are only 9 points above the drop zone as we wobble towards the end of the season believing we are safe.

The new Sunderland?
at 17:41 29 Jan 2020

I believe we drew 1-1 at home with West Ham and beat Sheffield Utd 1-0 at home and in the reverse fixtures lost 1-0 to West Ham and drew 0-0 in Sheffield. For some reason we really struggled to score against two poor sides in 75-76.

The issue with West Ham that season is that they were lucky to play us when we not on fire. The 1-1 draw at home was early in the season, so despite the fact we did not lose any of the opening eight games, we did draw five of them so quite a few points dropped then.

The return fixture in January was at the end of another eight game run where we only won twice in December and January so plenty more points lost then. After losing to West Ham I think we won 13 and drew one of the last fifteen matches but of course everyone generally blame Norwich for losing the title but the run at the turn of the year was costly with six matches where points were lost.

I have never liked West Ham since hearing some of their supporters in the early 90's whining that they could beat the top teams but lose to crappy QPR too often. The sort of arrogance where they felt they were as big as Arsenal and should have been challenging them for the title.

Focusing on the league - Preview
at 22:57 28 Jan 2020

Great article I couldn't agree more with all you have written. A club that says we can't afford to buy Wells, no money, tighten belts etc, and threw away a cup tie missing out on a big payday as a result, just to save players for what seems to be the annual away defeat at Ewood Park. Even getting a draw there seems beyond us each season but then our away form is starting to flounder again. It drives me to despair.

I fear that soon with nothing to play for the players will pack it in mentally so we end up losing later in the season to relegation candidates Barnsley, Wigan and Luton, like we did last season to Bolton and Rotherham as they will have plenty to fight for. Can I bear another miserable end to the season spoiling the good work prior to Brentford?

Blimey.... Really?

I do a damn good job where I work but that doesn't stop colleagues criticising me so I am afraid Warburton is not above criticism. We have won the last three or four league meetings with Wednesday and they were there for the taking after their Saturday humiliation.

Once again charitable QPR have handed out a pick me up to opponents and yet again we are out of the cup after another home defeat. We seem to specialise in getting knocked out in our own backyard.

No doubt it will be another case of sacking off the cup to save players for the next league game only to lose said league game as we so often do. Since our fifth away win we have returned to our dismal away form as Barnsley and Brentford showed. I don't suppose we will be much better away at bogey team Blackburn on a cold January night but hope to be proved wrong.

Did you also notice that they were going to get a summary of our match today and then there was a goal at the Emirates so they switched to that? The promise they would go back to Loftus Road later for a summary never happened.

Apparently we didn’t win
at 16:36 18 Jan 2020

As I mentioned in another thread the BBC headline that QPR beat 10 man Leeds implies we only won because they were a man down. As if an 88th minute sending off affected the result which it didn't.

Also according to the BBC they headlined the result as QPR win against 10 man Leeds.

For those not in the know, it comes across as though Leeds played most of the game a man short. A player sent off after 88 minutes hardly qualifies such a headline as it made little change to the result so late in the game.

Typical spin to try and take the gloss off our victory...

Whilst I understand this selection process for live games, I am actually talking about the round up highlights programme on BT Sport. The whole point of a round up is to show all the goals from all the games. Yet for some reason they showed Wolves v Man Utd 0-0, Millwall v Newport, Oxford v Hartlepool and all the rest of the fixtures, whilst QPR v Swansea and Burton v Northampton, both with six goals, were not shown.

How can you do a comprehensive round up of all the goals by leaving two fixtures out as if they never happened? It is like Match of the Day featuring the games played on a Saturday but then leaving a couple of the fixtures out of the highlights.

Virtually last to be shown on BBC but better than not being on at all. Congratulations to BT Sport in their FA Cup highlights who missed us out entirely yet they showed Oxford v Hartlepool. I hadn't realised QPR had folded. So much for the quality goals we scored. It never happened according to BT Sport.

I believe we were 11 points above Middlesbrough too and now they are just 2 points behind. It feels like a repeat of last seasons free fall which has started a little earlier. Sell Eze in January and we may stop creating chances whilst still shipping goals.

I guess I have become conditioned but I have seen enough false dawns with our club over past decades to think we will kick on from the promise shown this season. Any sign of an upturn in our fortunes is usually quickly crushed which mirrors my life. QPR and myself are perfectly suited for a lifetime of disappointments.
