BTFS - QPR

by CountryRoyal » 12 Jan 2017 22:45

Started writing this with 6 minutes left on the clock because it was so obvious to absolutely everyone that we were never getting anything out of this.

oxf*rd atrocious. One of the worst performances of the season, almost as frustrating as Wolves away.

So sloppy, so disjointed, complacency everywhere, no anticipation, second best to everything, unnacurate, soft, careless, clueless and generally shit.

I'd say it's an off day at the office but this is how we played for most of Bristol City and we were just as inept against Utd (better quality of opposition admittedly)

Moore and McCleary the only ones to really come out of that with any modicum of respectability.

Al-Habsi 5

Gunter 4
VDB 3
Moore 6
Obita 2

Swift 4
Kelly 5
Williams 3

McCleary 6
Kerm 4
Beerens 2

Stam 0 - Wrong tactics, wrong line up, wrong (lack there of) subs.

Only going one where playing like this and it's not oxf*rd up. I've had enough football for this week oxf*rd me this has possed me off. Ineptitidude of the highest order.

We were better on Saturday. Which is hardly complimentary.

For all the negativity that there'll be (much of it fully justified), we were still only a whisker away from getting an equaliser a couple of times and rescuing a thoroughly underserved point. Obviously if QPR were any good they'd have scored several more themselves given the utter shambles our defence was, particularly JVDB.

For me, this is just pretty par for the course given where we're at and how we play. If the passing works well and we get an early goal, we'll do very well in a game. If we get frustrated and especially if the opposition knicks a lead, we'll huff and puff and commit suicide at the back repeatedly, and look absolutely shocking.

It's performances like this that make me think we aren't ready for promotion and certainly won't get it.

There's lots of positives to take forward for this team, if not this performance. But there are just way too many weak links right now.

Difficult to see reason in the mood I am right now, but good post.

Awful, absolutely nobody seems up for this game tonight, including the fans given the crowd (understandable turnout with the weather around the area). How thing felt flat.

Every player off the pace, no invention and for the first half QPR were happy for us to have the ball as they knew we would give it back to them in our own half and give them an easy break. They took one and Mackie should have had two by HT.

We have 9 days to sort this out before Derby. Another performance like that and we will be ripped to shreds up there and confidence may start to disappear.

Anyone else quite like the look of Meite when he came on? Fast and strong.

I'm missing a decent season, but it's much easier to maintain perspective when you don't have to travel 80 miles to watch your team be shit every other week.

An absolute stone cold must is that we don't fall apart and nosedive like we have done the last three seasons.

Did we only make 2 subs?

How can that be justified. Sure i can see that if we were having shot after shot saved and basically raping the goal keeper.

But we weren't. Why not make a sub?

If we did make 3 subs then disregard and consider myself embarrassed

Tactically inept.
Any club looking to poach Stam will think again after watching the last two games.

Williams is a man working a six month notice period, stick him on gardening leave.

If you're confused as to why VdB is in the team: same agent as Stam. Simple as that.

Based on the season so far, the aim should be the playoffs

Brighton and Newcastle I think will get automatic and Leeds and Derby will be in the play offs. That leaves, imo, two places up for grabs and a right battle being set up between ourselves, Wednesday, Fulham, Huddersfield, Birmingham and possibly Villa and Norwich.

However, based on that atrocious load of **** tonight, plus the same **** at ManU, plus the same ***** for the first 75 minutes at Ashton Gate plus the inept 45 minutes we got at home to Fulham where Ayuto and Fredericks looked capable of running riot with ease it isn't going to be an easy target to achieve and certainly not without 2/3 decent signings this month.

And with Derby to follow next I think it'll get worse before it gets better.

Only one sub!
Stubborn point.


I remember early days, particularly Wolves and Newcastle away and was surprised at Stam's lack of substitutions.

It's a definite stubbornness to "stick to the plan".

If the plan was to be shit and never look like scoring then fair play lads, carried out perfectly, but I don't understand the mentality of someone watching that thinking we were ok without making changes.

Fact of the matter is the damage was done and highly likely no sub would make a difference to that shower of shite, but to not even try is a bit of a gamble which has backfired.

Be very disappointed if he doesn't get asked why he didn't make more changes and earlier.

Meite looked at threat certainly - would have put him on at half time

Beerens was poor - but I did think last 15 he did provide prob our only real danger

Evans should have started no doubts.

McCleary did ok when he had it - very disappointed he got so little of the ball

Just a poor day all round. Really need to get something at derby now to keep comfortable in the top 6
