QPR downed by one of their own - Report
at 16:10:22

I think Ollie showed in his comments he still wondered whether he should have moved Cousins in and put on young Furs wide right - which sounds about right. None of the subs worked - the feeling nags away that Ollie just throws the dice when subbing. Cannot understand why we left two decent wingers on the bench throughout, while chasing an equaliser with three forwards making a very narrow forward line. Not one of Ollie's better 45 minutes, but it sounds as if he may share that view! And since we always seem to be having a running poll, I'm still glad he's with us again.

Wednesday make it five straight defeats for hapless Rangers - Report
at 17:05:36

As we could all see, a complete mess. Hands up anyone who saw anything but another home struggle, as soon as they saw the team/formation. Surely if you only have one fit centre half you have to at at least keep the defence simple, not play several players out of position? (Bidwell in particular getting dog's abuse but landed right in it by the boss, in my view.) And don't you play big Matt Smith from the start, worth his weight in defence as an extra man at dead balls, surely? Worrying rather than just disappointing.

QPR upwardly mobile after joyful Barnsley show - Report

At risk of being called a Blue Meanie (hey, come on, 1967 is all the rage, right?) we really should have had the game dead and buried before they scored. But it was a wonderful game with both teams committed to all out attack. Funny what can happen when there's nothing riding on it....
Scylla's best game surely? He terrorised a much bigger (possibly hairy a***d) centre half all night.

Ince’s smash and grab has QPR and Derby heading opposite ways – Report
at 22:51:51

A very decent team effort but I thought we could have played all night and not scored. Earlier this season there was a lot of talk about how we only ever scored from dead balls - if only! 10 corners wasted - how difficult is it to get one in the spot? And Ollie needs some of Neil's eye for available - not always world beating - forwards available on loan. Our forward line needs reinforcements in January, or else.
Question: do they count all season tickets towards attendance, because its a sale? Must have been at least 20 paid-for seats empty around me.

Perch, Smithies and a return of the square pegs – Knee Jerks
at 19:07:26

Think you're being very harsh. Very disappointing result, but I saw a team putting in a fight and trying to play some football. The whole match hinged on a (so called) experienced player having a brain f**t (which he seems to manage in every game, mostly getting away with it) and the rest of the team having to dig in and try to make up for it.

The return – Preview
at 18:59:23

Well done, Clive, do keep calling out those whose idea of a telling point is to ask who should get a bullet (they don't pay much attention to daily news obviously) (or maybe they do, sigh). The quick answer to why this stuff goes "unchallenged" is probably that normal and decent members of the human race have decided to leave the anti-social media to the morons. Sad but there it is.

Perfect storm - Knee Jerks
at 17:37:47

I can't blame the players too much, there was no shortage of effort, but an absolute gulf in class and ability - sadly about a two divisions gulf. Not sure if JFH has ever had to put out a side against a Prem team (which in truth they were) before. A steep learning curve all round, and maybe a list for reinforcements needed in January?

Preston profit from lacklustre QPR – Report
at 11:58:53

Not sure why, if fatigue is an issue, two young keen wingers sat on the bench throughout, especially as absolutely nothing was coming from out wide all afternoon. What happened to managing your squad through the glut of early season matches? (So important to make space for that vital international break. Not.)

Many thanks for the report, Lee, always appreciate a bit of honesty. It can be too easy to wrap up in the comfort blanket - the one labelled "we wuz robbed" - so I hope JFH isn't going to do that too often.

Hall off the mark, but QPR held by Reading – Report
at 18:11:57

The voice of reason again, do keep on saying it, most people agree. What annoys me is other websites lifting a few quotes off the anti-social media and headlining it as "what QPR fans think about ....... " (fill in name of player or management). We have shipped out a whole team (not all useless but wildly overpaid for a club like ours) and shipped in virtually a whole new team, ending in mid table. I think we would have settled for that. Some great goals from new signings Chery, Nasser and Polts, top class new centre half and two ace new keepers (that we may struggle to keep if they carry on like this). Centre mid needs reinforcing, but by comparison with this time last year, I feel quite positive about next season. Onwards and upwards!

Wegerle goal crowns wonderful comeback - History
at 18:28:09

Good stuff as ever. Some great battles with Leeds down the years. I remember the visit of the Revie team - our record attendance - sadly a defeat but those present will remember being beaten by a great passing side - and then returning the favour with interest in the last game of 75/76. But this is a shadow of their former selves. Leeds results for a couple of months suggest they're there for the taking. (I know, I know. I'm off to stick my head in a bucket for even mentioning it.)

QPR shake London derby monkey in fine style – report
at 18:38:08

So glad I'm not alone in my Polterlove. This young man came from German lower leagues, got dog's abuse from some of our fans, and has come on in leaps and bounds this season. As for Hoilet and Philips - a pair of light bulbs. "The lights are on. The lights are off. The lights are on. The lights are off." (Check the "installation" at Tate Modern a few years ago - possibly another first for LFW?!) We can't afford any more light bulb players. They could leave and be replaced tomorrow by Nasser and Washington, and you know what? We'd be alright.

I know Junior and Chery provided the bells and whistles, but let's give credit to the young man doing the heavy lifting. For me, Seb Polter MOTM by a mile.

The worse the match, the more amusing the write up. "In Lancashire they simply call it February." Hee hee. (And my dad was a Lancastrian who got one look at the south coast when posted in the war - well OK one look at mum as well - and never went back.) I am starting to worry a bit about Hasselbaink. We all want him to succeed. But come on mate, either stick a red hot poker up this lot, or find some fighters.

Learning to love January – Column
at 19:40:33

It's another vote in the plus column. I agree 100% with what Les Fredinand is aiming to do, apparently now with manager and chief exec on side, hallelujah. I just hope they can manage the chairmans "expectations" while the rebuilding goes on. At risk of showing my age, I can't help but notice that "what QPR fans think" is for most of the media just hoovering up what a few dozen commit to the anti-social media (as I in my dotage call it). I seem to recall we had the thick end of 40,000 at the play off final. Our future has to lie with Polter, Luongo, Hall, Smithies (brilliant signing) plus the new boys this month, not overpaid premiership crocks and early retirement plans.

Hoilett’s return to form not enough for QPR in Bristol – Report
at 18:54:56

Like the Devon White comparison but surely we have a more recent alter ego for Seb Polter? I like to think that Ian Dowie copped off with a barmaid in a Hamburg bierkeller, and young Sebastian is the result. As it happens I absolutely love mad Seb Polter to bits, and look forward to his arriving on the pitch, charging at the nearest defender(s) like a demented warthog. We really can't go on playing wingers as centre forwards with Polter and JET in the taxi rank. Makes no sense.

QPR battle MK and restless natives for spirited victory – report
at 19:21:24

The criticism of Ramsey and some players is completely over the top, and only helps the other side. You don't have to look far back to see much, much worse football and team spirit when we were in the Championship. We have a decent first team (even with those likely to go) and you can even see a next team in the making - when was that last the case? The critics need to be careful what they wish for. Tim Sherwood is available.....!

QPR cash in their referee chips in Wednesday stalemate – report
at 17:34:34

Absence of alternative right back is not a plus point for our management. "To lose one useful young RB on loan and then need him may be unfortunate, but to lose two is careless" (to coin a phrase). On a night for the defence, even with the unfortunate incident, that man Clint Hill my MOTM easily - Clint by name, Clint by nature. Nobody laughs at his mule.

Lessons in substitutions – Knee jerks
at 17:17:59

Right to the end I thought, this is going to be 1-0 to Wednesday's only shot on target, so I'm like you, it's a clean sheet and a point against a form team. I thought we looked more solid with Clint, Sandro and Luongo down the middle. Nice point about subs, guess this is one of those things about managing a team through 90 minutes of competitive football that you don't get as a coach, however long in the job. Ramsey has overseen, what, maybe 25-30 matches as a manager? Let's hope Neil will also say you can never have too many forwards on the taxi rank, even if they're not all world beaters.
