And then I looked up at the sun and I could see - Report

The write up was as thrilling as the game!

- Willock is the latest iteration of sensational QPR midfielders.
I do worry that aka last year he gets targeted to opposition heavies.

- now Stan has his stand, The Kelly family must get two forever seats.
Has done more for QPR publicity than anyone could have imagined. Not just the goal, but the QPR flag, references to Bobby Zamora , really epic stuff.

Analytics' fav Paal caps busy weekend for Rangers – Signing
at 20:11:10

Great discussion. Great write up as expected. Drives home where we are and especially brings into context where we are going. A far cry from the ‘ buy a promotion’ peers we still must compete with. My question in all this is which other players from the released lists we could take a chance on? I read a huge list of players including the likes of Dixon-Bonner many of whom could make interesting analytics projects.

Clive-
Read this piece at least 3 times and it gets better each time. The part that stands out is the pedigree and similarity to the other coaches you mentioned, inc Steve Cooper, Potter et al. I most look forward to seeing how he feels with the youth set up and organizational philosophy. And how he impacts Willock, and the young and upcoming talent. I hope Eustace stays.

End Of Term Report 21/22 – Goalkeepers
at 17:53:05

Excellent write up. I would lean on the side that says the absence of Dieng exposed the back line and ripped our attempts at making the playoffs to shreds, just based on what you said.

I would also like the metrics on Dieng’s ‘goals saved’ .. I am sure someone has all the data and is willing to share. I think he keeps us in a lot of games. In the States there is a STAT called ‘wins over replacement’ ( baseball) and I would estimate that if applied to Seny he would be very highly ranked.

End of Term Report 21/22 – Attack
at 04:13:19

Thanks
Awesome writing.
IMO-1. I think Lyndon is gone. If not Newcastle, then Burnley or Watford. Or Bournemouth. Somewhere amongst the promoted or Relegated with 10k to spend on a target man. I am betting his international showing to raise his tag. I am extremely sorry Les did not let him go in Jan.
I look forward to Armstrong Sinclair. Probably could have At least as well as Dykes from Feb on.
IMO2. Ilias Chair. Sell high. I see a skill player who will excel in Europe, away from from the Brutes of the Championship. Aka Dinitri Payet. Again an opinion.

Hello Clive
It was a nice feel good result for sure and I appreciate all the effort to religious blog come rain or shine. I do have a few remarks I would like to add as the MS era closes.

-Football world had an article on BOS that appeared on Tuesday in which he gushed over Ramsey and Eustace. Basically he credits them with his turn around from Blackpool cast off to Champions league player. I would expect Eze might have a similar story. As you said above clearly there was no adhesion between the manager and back room despite public kumbayas. For all the positives you said about Seny above I would wonder if MW would not have preferred Marshall as his starter.

Reference Gray et al: I for one think QPR post FFP will spend now that they list of MW recruits and favorites are off the books. Andre I expect will be on much less wages now his contract is up.
Next, I have a gut feeling Illas is off. I think his tools fit in Europe and we might reap a few bucks especially after his good work this year. I think QPR is best built around Willock and he and Chair don’t always blend. I also see Dykes of to greener pastures and likewise Dickie.
Finally receding back to my earlier observation, I think the MW era was closed as much to give Lee Hoos the opportunity to give the job to John Eustace who HAS built a positive relationship with management, players and is clearly a wanted commodity.

MW. I thought the contract issue was handled as well as it could be. My question this morning is whether he was a ‘ lame duck’ and was always going IF a trip to the playoffs was not forthcoming.
#2. Amongst the usual drivel is rumors of recruits from lower leagues and the usual Prem overaged youngsters.. if this is where QPR intend to shop, have QPR decided MW no longer fit as the guide on that path.
#3. I think the Hoos/Les partnership have aims for a bigger name. Just my thoughts. Casting my eye to that Burnley interim manager…

End of an era but this is the DNA of football. It will be interesting to see where we go next.

Is this Lee Hoos’ first dip at selecting the manager???

Two more points if I may:
I loved your comment about the train ride. But this comment is about Lyndon. In Jan he scored twice vs Reading and we were sailing.. talk was he was off to Burnley or Newcastle and we were looking at a replacement (Lawrence / Patterson). How much did that impact our team ? Split the dressing room?
Point 2: speaking to your Dozzel comment that he is a better offensive player than defensive. Wasn’t he used in a defensive position more often than not in his early appearances? Where would he fit if Willock was in the side? Interesting player

Superb. Not a thing here I can add and you summed everything up I was felt. Be it all the way across the pond. Be interesting to see how Les and Lee et Al. Move forward.
1. Kids vs Geezers: you nailed on the my thoughts that MW might be getting more from youngsters than the oldies he usually relies on. I thought Dieng Chair and even Eze spent a little too long on Loan. Clearly cautious with youngsters. Another thing that comes to mind is that other similar teams in the championship brought in high end youngsters from the Prem who are doing well, in contrast to us..
2. MW: We have NOT really talked about Mark taking the opportunity to walk away himself and taking the debate out of QPR’s hands… as I watch Needum and Sean Derry at Wembley. All managers are destined to move on eventually.
3. Despite the public comments I think the back room is thinking prudently about the longer term not short term flirtations

Thank you. I have stepped back from my stance of several weeks ago. I am in the NW corner. There are a couple of whinges that linger. His fetish for older veterans despite his development friendly resume(?), and characteristic stubbornness. I am concerned that his dressing room is divided which is undermining his leadership.

Thanks as always

I am 3000 miles away and I was happy to see the game and better yet enjoy a win!
I can also say that once again EVERY observation pointed out by you was once again on display.
That said it was a good win. I can’t dig on Marshall. He was the 3rd string banished GK at Derby, after being starting goalie for Scotland in the Summer. He is nothing short of a godsend for the side.
And a great co- keeper for Seny who did show his own dip for s minute early in the season.
Thank you for your support of Amos. MW lauded him but then stuck him o the bench for reasons none of us have gleaned. But, when he plays we have won.

Second half slump incurs Warbs’ wrath – Report
at 03:37:42

Clive
Please keep up the great work. You might never have coached but clearly you show more acumen than many who do.

A few Thoughts;
Due to the power of TV we can replay games over and over again pointing out errors and taking a plethora of notes .. MANY fans have consistently pointed out on message boards that all (but MW) can’t see.
- Moses can cross but cannot defend. He runs into traffic persistently. Reflecting on another post I wonder if he would not be a revelation in the BOS role providing a spate of pace and width late in a game
- Hendricks was probably seen by Lee Hoos as great cover for Stef and Field. Not as a redundant addition to a team described as ‘Leggy’. Again, I recall (and the proof is on Sky replays).. Luke Amos was seen busting his lung up and down a pitch or 2 very effectively. Heck, did he not hand MW a win his last time out?
- Barbet. Has improved no doubt but I am not a fan. Yes, I appreciate his longevity but I hope MW miraculously feels like putting him into the back 3 and sitting Our French talisman…. Who might not be back after the Summer anyway.
Three points.. I strongly feel our team is close, so it would be a shame if we did not get a shot in the playoffs

Chair's goal coughs QPR back into life - Report
at 17:43:02

Clive-
Just keep up the great work! Thanks for proving some of us a little less insane than we feel after a typical QPR game. I was horrified about Chris sent to the KB position earlier in the year. But I must admit that now that Hendricks is in and Tori Amos must play the potential for a new dimension to Chris I’d quite appealing.
2- Forss also could have been a great pickup ( ditto ur fave Hugill) as big lug up front. Not going to criticize Chaz at all!! But alternating Dykes and Chaz is the best we have.
3- final comment- if MW is resting players then surely next go round Barbie sits and Dion-jimmy- Rob form the new back 3. I opine that the fullbacks could also benefit.
