Rangers run ragged by rampant Tykes – Report
at 00:54:49

'I found them quite exhilarating to be honest, and certainly a good deal better to watch and more fun than the current modern trend towards pisballing about in your own penalty area from your own goal kick, racking up 70% possession all of it entirely in neutral areas, and sneering at anybody who doesn’t do the same as if they’re some sort of luddite.'

Indeed. Swansea have a lot to answer for.

Ha, perfect title Clive! It's a very interesting subject, obviously two valid sides of the argument.

One thing worth remembering, it's only really the midfielders even do that much running. Wingbacks and full backs too i suppose. Not so much the strikers or centre backs, though. I never got tired playing in defence or striker particularly, you're literally stood around waiting lots of the game. When they are playing twice a week, with travelling as well, there's hardly time for any training either, so it's not like they're doing any more than usual really. It's obviously spurious as to whether it would have helped to keep Charlie on a little longer, but when one also includes the vast psychological effect it has on the other 21 players (swapping Charlie for Dykes) if we then ask the question simply 'were we more or less likely to have taken something from that game if he'd stayed on a little longer', there's really one obvious answer. Will we lose him to an injury if he stays on? I remain unconvinced. And let's not forget, we're talking about the best player we have being replaced by the worst.

I'd be fascinated to be able to see these analytics and talk in detail with them about this, maybe they could convince me, but for now, i still consider it a textbook case of over-thinking things. Get your best 11 on in their best positions whenever possible. Recovery would be better served during the week if they have to. Train less during the week if they need to reduce the load. To take the best players off at half-time; bloody daft.

Clive, come on. We all know he doesn't want to be taking Charlie off after 50 minutes.

We also all know he shouldn't have done it, sports science be Damned. The demoralising effect it has on the other ten QPR players to lose our Talisman for a genuine pub team player...it's why we lost that game.

Macauley Bonne was in from the start up front alongside Charlie Austin with Lyndon Dykes self-isolating, as he’s been doing for most of the season.

Mistletoe and whine - Podcast
at 00:50:47

We have had this episode every season for more than a decade.

Our problem now isn't particularly Warburton, it's swapping our few best players from last year for several crap players this year. Defence, midfield and attack is all a weakness.

Yes, i'm not blaming all of this on Mark Warburton either. I thought he'd been doing well.

The team seems to not quite have enough quality. Not sure anybody coming in will be able to improve this shambles immediately without at least a new signing or two.

And remember that the first chance, whereby we really should have been 1-0 down after 90 seconds, was yet again directly the result of refusing to clear a ball that needed clearing in defence, as per Warburton's doctrine, only to be conceded to the opposition in keystone cops fashion. As always.

At the moment, we're getting away with a certain goal conceded almost every week caused by our own defenders not clearing it. We've actually been consistently fortunate this year, relative to other seasons. The commentary team and yourself are going easy not mentioning it every week.
