Apparently vaguely on the radar. Prolific at Doncaster but hardly pulling up trees before that. His record at Millwall made Conor Washington look like Lionel Messi. However, 1 in 2 at Doncaster. We certainly need a few strikers in as at the moment we only have Smith and Oteh who are actual out and out strikers.
Any news on what the deal is with Eustace now? Said to be being offered a position but seems Warburton wants his own coach in. It would be a great shame to lose Eustace. He has the respect of the squad and to me has proven, like Ramsey that he can really be an asset to the club.
Not all of the players are going to be good enough to play out there at Loftus Road... and that's why they're all leaving.
The board had a solid plan. They know what they want. Wingers out so wide that they are actually on loan at other clubs and Champions League football by pre-season.
You have to get on well with your director of football. It's vital. I sat down with Les and I deleted his number immediately afterwards.
It's vital that the players learn how to look after the ball. That's why they will be taking it home with them in much the same way I used to take the school hamster home when I was at primary school. I only lost that once so I'm hopeful.
Matt Smith really belts that but huge credit to Scowen for the 1st. That goal is 'sweet' and beautifully finished. Both goals excellent. Looking again none of them are penalties and I think even BOS throws himself against the defender's leg for ours. That said just let Manning take the pen FFS. Hopefully they may have finally learnt their lesson. But well deserved win and a very unusual feeling to win a final game of the season... away!
Well done John. Shots Weds 8 QPR 16 Shots on Target Weds 2 QPR 8
Apart from being allergic to taking penalties or letting Manning have a go we dominated much of the game today. Over the 50 point mark.
Eustace has taken quite a bit of stick but having been thrown in at the deep end he's done well enough. Brought through some younger players, tried to attack and if we could take penalties he would have got a few more points as well.
Whatever happens, and I still think we could do worse than let him develop a team and his own style but, thanks John. Not sure Steve M would have got us out of that, even though in the end we were comfortably clear, we were only going one way.
Slow, cumbersome, lump, static. Yeah, but you play him and he causes all kinds of nightmares and does that elusive thing other players don't do. He scores goals. Does my nut listening to all the b*llocks about how he's just a bit part lump. Hugely important we keep hold of him.
And that we finally let Manning actually take a penalty!!!
from the BBC site... Defeat for QPR in this match will see the Hoops lose 24 league matches in a season for only the second time in the past 50 campaigns, also losing 24 in 2014-15 in the Premier League.
Feel for him. Giving youngsters their chance. Losing either by horrendous refereeing or being let down by player's finishing.
I am sure he will be replaced but despite the defeats there is something really nagging with me that he is the right man to take a young team forward next season. Given a clean brush and a team of young and hopefully hungrier players I still think he could be a real asset.
I think he will go if a new manager comes in but I think he may well return with another young team to haunt us.
Amazingly bad coverage of the 3rd goal but never mind. Swansea had a really bad day but we at least had a game plan and that was a performance that reminded me tactically of some of the home games under Warnock, where we just pushed teams into basic mistakes and went for them.
