After 25 minutes on Saturday I was telling anyone who would listen that we were going to win the league, I've calmed down to playoff win after the second half.
My optimism is mainly based on the fact my wife has booked a holiday for May next year and we fly out on the day of the playoff final, we've never done this before to be out of the country for the playoffs and the only other time we booked something else for playoff weekend was my sister in laws 30th birthday party at our house in 2014 which meant my misses and son couldn't go to wembley for Bobby Zamora day.
plenty of reasons not to go, i used to go to every away game following far worse sides than this one but circumstances change and I can't do as many these days, am hoping to do Hull next month though, plus the away game i did recently I had younger supporters giving myself and my son stick for not standing up all game and was told I'm not a real fan for not wanting to sing all game so motivation to go again isn't high to be honest.
Those that want to and can afford to then good luck to them and hope they have a good day and see another win
more meant the style at the time, i know we didn't lose for a while but we were pretty boring in most games and putting a few passes together was the exception when a side costing that much should have been doing it every week.
I agree it should be fun and they shouldn't ignore good performances but to me they go well over the top whenever we do well. Last season as well we won 3 games in a week and the dick swinging by the club was insane. It was only a few weeks ago that one of our players got so much abuse on twitter they had to delete their account, I just don't think the hype of certain players by the club helps when form and results inevitably drop.
nothing wrong with celebrating skill, I just think club tend to go a bit over the top when we have a few good results or a player has a few good games. When redknapp was manager they kept showing a video of us putting 25 passes together which results in nothing but they never stopped going on about it for weeks and for me it just highlighted how shit we were in the other games that a passing move that ended in us not scoring was seen as a highlight. McClaren got the job last year partly based on that passing move which ended in nothing. So it's not a new thing, I just think it's fine for fans to do and make this kind of thing, we are supposed to be excitable and going overboard but when the club do it I find it a bit over the top.
Maybe all clubs do this and it's how the world works now but they seem to go overboard whenever we have a few good games and i think it contributes to extreme reactions. The club keep saying how great we are and look someones done a step over then when we fall from that level the vitriol to the players and clubs is well over the top as well. There needs to be some middle ground from both sides. Last season Eze started the season well and after all the hype and tribute videos of his time at Wycombe and gifs of him at the start of last season when his form dropped the abuse he got from people who couldn't accept that drop affected him badly, I just think let them play without the hype and their performances alone will be enough.
The club and the media team at QPR have an important role now to calm down a bit and stop tweeting gifs of Eze doing a drag back and talking us up like we are the new Barcelona on podcasts. They have surely learned in the last few years it doesn't take much for us to fall off a cliff so as good as we look at the moment it should be us fans going over the top rather than the club
few years back we were shoved on the train after the hour long wait out of the stadium, back at London Bridge two mates needed to get a train home to Dartford but were shoved on a tube back across to the other side of London and ended up getting home about 2am.
We lost 2-0 that night and think the news had just come out about the Faurlin points deduction possibility, happy days
he did an interview with Neville last week which is on you tube, is long but worth a watch, he slaughters Ferguson and Jon Walters, a fascinating man, I met him through work once and he was a lot less scary than I expected
never understand with these things why they don't give everyone the chance to buy them, you could order online so they know how many to order then pick up at a game in the club shop or be posted to you
I thought it was a great game, after the first goal cock up I thought England were good in the first half, Sterling was unplayable at times and Sancho looks exciting, dropped off second half but still could have scored 8 quite easily
Plenty to improve on for England which is exciting, I'd like to see Maddison get a go ahead of Barkley
England are going well although would have liked to see Maddison get a game yesterday, these qualifiers are hard work as teams just sit back against us so we don't learn a lot but without playing that well we comfortably won 4-0.
Although many don't like ITV's coverage at least the game was on free to air rather than the very good Nations League which hardly anyone got to watch, the day will come when all england games are behind pay tv so enjoy them whilst you can
