Naïve QPR caught in Cardiff trap – Report
at 02:38:24

It wasn't BOS's finishing that got me, it was that Scowen and Hugill were unmarked five yards in front of goal centre and left post respectively while BOS was coming at Smithies from a narrow angle and attracting defenders like picnic wasps to an open pot of jam. A gentle tap sideways had a 95% chance of resulting in a goal.

Ok, there's a lot of issues, but Holy Cheeses, we're still so, so far ahead of last January to May.

Impressive Baggies return Rangers to earth - Report

Loved the 'dog on the playground scaring both sides' line. Nice to hear about the applause for Austin and Furlong.

Very interesting report, Clive, especially about our appropriate outcome considering the quality of the opposition.

Time will tell. Meanwhile, I'm very happy with ninth.

Wells fells Wawll with crisp double - Report
at 22:59:37

"This is a football team for whom spitting on it counts as foreplay." Is that an original? Probably not, but never mind. Brilliant line!

Have to disagree on the mechanics of our first goal, Clive. Kane is coming through but Pearce drags the ball off his feet but doesn't realise, and nor does their #5 Cooper, that the ball is going straight to an unseen Wells. I was wondering why the Beeb text didn't credit an assist and that was why.

Never mind the preview being late, Clive, I've been repeatedly checking the Prediction League to see how far I've managed to advance from near the top of Page 3. Yep, just above the bottom of Page 2.

I liked "Sean Goss, spotted long enough to be forced into a permanent move to the sort of club he used to refuse to join on loan" best.

Summer-long striker search turns up Brighton loan – Signing
at 05:57:56

I suppose Les Ferdinand's wage might cover half of one, or maybe all of one, at the outside, player's wages. He doesn't seem to be earning his keep otherwise. Not that getting rid of LF would be a good thing. I still don't trust Fernandes' football nous for a second.

Ball arrival raises old recruitment questions – Signing
at 01:10:01

I've never been one to say "what does Les do?", but the signings this season are entirely Warburton retreads. Therefore, despite the spectacular success of signings like Derry and Hill, I have to sympathise with your last question about Ferdinand and Penrice and the overall question about manager-specific signings. Time will tell.

QPR's crawl to finish line reaches Derby - Preview
at 11:58:37

Dear God, how many times? Draws still add a point and they all count in that rather annoying league table. Sure, complain about not turning draws into wins when you're in the middle of the table, but otherwise, swallow your discontent and yell "Bank". Never mind the three weakest links who get relegated.
As for not getting draws this season....sorry, leaving aside the first four games, this has been a season of two complexions: OMG good and OMG bad. Draws had nothing to do with it. Hang onto those lovely 2018 points and wait for arithmetic safety...it ain't far off.

QPR looking to turn the tide on Swans - Preview

I always enjoy looking at Jack Supple's stats, but it's not fair to Ramsey to list in "Permanent Managerial Appointments" his post-Redknapp please-mind-the=shop-while-we-decide-what-to-do-in-the-Championship spell. Also, win percentage isn't actually a thing of much great importance.

Where to now, and who’s making that call? Preview
at 04:15:47

In case anyone is interested, here's the Fernandes' manager's points per game:

Hughes 0.88
Redknapp 1.28
Ramsey 1.03
Hasselbaink 1.23
Holloway 1.15
McClaren 1.24

It shows Hughes in a suitably bad light, and Ramsey in an unsuitably bad light. I always limit Ramsey to the Championship games to strip the Premier results when he was appointed the caretaker manager to a team perceived as already relegated. Under that lens his results are 6-4-7, or a much healthier 1.27.ppg.
