    I can’t help but like him. I know he’s not very good but just seems like a likeable guy and probably on no money by Championship standards.

    Apart from the fear of crossing he put himself about yesterday, never hid. He’s a decent championship level back up right back, and there is nothing to dislike about him. The fear always is that a couple of mistakes and the crowd will be on his back. Austin gave him a bollocking yesterday when one of the few crosses he did attempt didn’t land on the great man’s head. I thought at the time, no wonder he doesn’t try to get the ball over that often.

    Yeah, Dickie has found his level, but I’d still sell him for the right moolah.

    Meant I’d take Noble on loan, Col. Nah, wouldn’t buy him. Don’t worry, though, won’t happen.

    Anyone with one good ( left) leg will get a game as our wing back currently to be honest. Kakay has always looked a better CD to me too...and with some pace too.


    Does not help our December problem...who can play wing back for 6 or so matches until our own wing backs heal

    Don't play with wing backs if that's the case.

    Are wing backs not a more urgent requirement, or is Dickie already lined up to move ?

    If Spam came in with a big offer, Dickie will go...we are looking at Souttar from Hearts.

    Dunne to me is a better player...

    Also remember Barbet is out of contract in August and there are rumours he wants to go back to France to finish his career

    According to Dave M., WLS Warburton wants to bring in another CB in January as de Wyjs has been injured so often and may not be back til after January. Appears he wants Masterson to stay on loan at Cambridge for the whole season to develop further.. I cant believe a Club near the top of the PL will want Dickie, surely he's too slow at that level. If he or Barbet or Dunne do go, we'd be looking for 2 CB's.

    Looks to me like we need at least 1 or 2 more WB's too. Wallace and McCallum look too injury prone. Wallace and Albert are getting on. Moses is injured a fair amount too. We could use some real speed there.

    Injuries reall seem to be taking their toll on positions. If i were Warbs i would be having Amos train as the right wingback in training. He has the energy, hes right footed and we have an abundançe of midfielders.

    Unfortunately that line up, formation is likely to get out numbered and over run in midfield....... Think you'd need someone like Amos in there to bulk out the middle, but then that means sacrificing either Chair or Willock if playing 2 up top or moving one of them forward and losing one of Austin or Gray........

    Who'd be a manager eh?

    Warburton could always alter it or tweak it once we were 1-0 up !

    Have you seen us put in many decent crosses lately ? Just dominate the midfield, obviously Chair and Willock could drift into wider positions when required

    I've been saying this for a while, in the tactics thread. It's been so frustrating watching QPR live (you can't see these things on TV) and seeing strikers put their hands up for the ball or making a run time after time whilst being ignored by any other player in possession.

    What is so hard about dinking over a looped through ball from any part of the pitch if you see the striker wants it? Call me old fashioned, but if the striker wants the ball, ****ing give it to him?

    What I don't get is these players are supposed to be professionals. I play football weekly with my mates and we can send those looped through balls over.

    The thing is, for too long, as a team, QPR have been so polite to opposition defenses; we like to politely wait for them to get back into position before we attempt anything, getting a kick out of trying to break them down when they have every player behind the ball.

    But with strikers calling for the ball, this is an opportunity to make defenses sweat, hopefully get a mistake or two out of them.

    For clarity, I don't want to see us pinging lost cause balls over all game long either. But a combination of different approaches so that teams don't work us out in the first 15 mins.

    Going back to your main point, we can achieve this by Willock and Chair taking turns to drop into defense temporarily to take the pressure off there, and then trying to find that pass rather than incessantly trying to take on players and find a shot.
