League Cup..... That’s All Folks!! 22:36 - Aug 28 with 2567 viewsLblock

I went this evening against my better judgement as I’d self imposed a ban on League Cup games due to the clubs attitude over 20 odd years.
Gutted I went.
Take the first 15 minutes away (which was pretty but with no end product) and that was typical QPR versus a League One team in the Cup. Total garbage.
Conceited attitude and substitutions that made the team progressively worse.
We were a lightweight kindergarten in midfield, Barbet attroticous and zero pace anywhere.
I don’t usually make mind up about players until seen a few games but this Mlakar fella is never a striker while he’s got a hole in his arse. No strength, no pace, wins nothing in the air, lays it off to ghosts and no skill. With nobody up front we were always going to get nothing.
I’m never going a League Cup game again unless it’s a quarter final!!!!!

I recall the posts after the last game slagging people off for not attending
Well I’d like to hear you justifying that heap tonight and guilt tripping people for not attending. The club reap as they sow

Also went to my first cup game after at least 10 years of cup exile on my part due to our general shocking efforts. Maybe I bring bad luck.

Miles away from what I've seen in the league this season in terms of performance. Minimal threat, light weight and hardly anyone playing to their ability

The usual rubbish dished up at home to a lower league team that we specialise in with monotonous regularity in this competition. Yet Sky keep on insulting our intelligence every time it happens by describing it as a shock. Surely Sky have noticed we always seem to lose these games to realise it is the norm?

Same as LBlock and everybody else on this thread.

Likewise we called it a day on League Cup fixtures a few years back but got lured back by the nature and comment after the Bristol game.

It all came flooding back shortly after having parted with another 30 quid between us.

There but for the grace of god, Lblock - I came close to getting a ticket for this. Strange thing that tipped the balance, I was wavering and then saw that this game earns 10 loyalty points...unless you buy a ticket on the day. Now, I'm never going to earn enough loyalty points for anything more than a Tuesday night trip to Port Vale, but I just thought, oh fck off.

Maybe i'm alone in thinking we were marginally the better team until the penalty. Then we just gave up and / or got the jitters.

Yep you a very much in the minority mate. I thought we were shite and Pompey throughly deserved to win! We were gutless , clueless and toothless!!

Erm not acceptable even if true.

I thought Mlaker should have done much better with his chance at the end. Great pass by Manning.

Like me, you may have felt that we were the better team at that stage because, not for the first time this season, we had been playing some attractive football in the middle of the park. Unfortunately, once again, we looked clueless at both ends of the pitch.
Kelly makes me feel nervous every time the ball comes anywhere near him and Barbet continues to look like an accident waiting to happen. Kane played OK without ever impressing and I actually thought that Leistner was bossing their forwards until that ridiculous foul that gave away the penalty. Of the back line, only Manning stood out for me - as he has for much of these opening games.
Up top we were poor, I thought. Mlakar won nothing in the air yet we continued to lump it up to him and when he did get possession on the floor, he wasn't really supported by any of his colleagues bar Chair - who looked very impressive until his injury just before half time. And although we looked neat and tidy going forward through the midfield, we had nobody to effectively break up the play when we weren't in possession. Smith (again looking like a boy in a mens team) BOS and Pugh win very few tackles. Owens, for all his inexperience, looked the most likely to win the ball back. I believe we need to find someone to take on Cameron's role or this is going to be a reoccurring theme - and the way he's started the season, I don't think we can turn to Scowen.

I'd go along with that Bazza - not much in it; Pompey were very well organised/hard working and we lacked the craft and guile to get the opener. They didn't really look like scoring until the penalty - after that we lost the plot a bit. Fair play to Pompey, they deserved their victory - we had too many go missing last night.

Did I ever mention that I was in Minder?

Yep, same here. Loftus Rd won’t be seeing me again in the early rounds of the league cup.
If I had a £100 for each time we’ve lost at home to lower league opposition in this competition, I would have over 2k easily.
We are a complete joke, an utter embarrassment in cup competitions, and yet a lot of our fans will keep chanting Chelsea are shite.
And they are, except in the will-to-win department. There, they wipe the floor with us every season.

I was taking with my mate last night and asked why we just don’t do a pay what you want on the doors at every league cup match?

He reckons due to shared revenue rules we’d have to offer it to the away side too. That would be fine by me.

Seen it done at Brentford and Non League Day and it’s contributes to the overall spirit. Some people get proper generous after a few beers as well.

Interestin iea...... however I'm not sure they'd have enough £20 notes on the turnstile to offer me to walk in or if the turnstile operators have the authority to write club cheques to us supporters.

After considering last night further across this morning and a lunchtime fry p I'm re-doubled in my ommittment -- they can stick the League Cup and possibly FA Cup early rouds right up their jacksies.

It's madnes. The cus ued to really get the juices flowing, always a dream to gt to finals and win them.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, people will have to be paid to attend cup fixtures. If it looks like there's going to be a low turnout then payments will have to be increased accordingly.

I actually don't disagree. We weren't good by any stretch, but Pompey certainly didn't look any better and we definitely created more chances.

Game turned on the penalty and substitutions for me.

Yes. Bazza is right. I agree with MW that we were complacent thinking the goal would turn up, rather than make it happen. Until the penalty Portsmouth had created next to nothing.

BOS looked like he was half asleep until the second half. Leistner is terminally slow which led to both goals, though Barbet of course contributed to the second. Mlakar didn't look like scoring. However the rest of the team were OK in my opinion.

The OTT criticism is just stupid.

Thought Portsmouth were quite smart with their time wasting too. Gave themselves a breather from that intense pressing game they were playing. In hindsight we should have used those moments to gather ourselves too.

Impressive shithousery from them.

A bit late to this but plenty of time to reflect:

We were the better side in parts of the game, first 15 and momentum was building before the subs. The majority of the game was dull with two teams cancelling each other out.

The subs killed our best spell as mentioned by others.

Starting with Smith and Owens, left us very inexperienced in that part of the team needed to shield the centre backs. Maybe should have started with Ball and Owens or Scowen and Owens.

It was very disappointing after the first round, which was such an exciting game. The best performance this season has descended to the worst.

Apart from the first game, we have gone behind in every match so far. When is Cameron back?

I know it is soooo easy to sit at a keyboard and type this, but I think the key lesson from the season so far is that we are very capable of getting on top in games but are simply not registering enough goals in those periods.

An increased focus on shooting/heading/finishing required during training, in my (amateur) opinion.

"Things had started becoming increasingly desperate at Loftus Road but QPR have been handed a massive lifeline and the place has absolutely erupted. it's carnage. It's bedlam. It's 1-1."
