Interesting thread on Manning: https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/forum/262856/page:1

Could have legs I reckon

This quote really made me chuckle (for those who didn't get as far as pg2)

"The meat and potato pies that are sold outside Blackburn's ground are without doubt the best I've ever eaten.
Not quite sure I'd want to sell up and move to Blackburn but it's worth a thought and has now got me thinking."

?. Can't argue that this lad has ticked off Ewood on his 92 tracker!

I disagree. We just scored 2 away at Bournemouth and really should have had more.

The goals will come, I just can't see us keeping enough out...

No they won't.  Won't help keep having good ones ruled out.  That little bit of quality is what seperates promotion teams from also rans.  

  The ability to finish is crucial.  More so if you know you are gifting.2 goals a game.  Still, how many championship teams miss those shots Bournemouth scored from?  Quality.

Definitely seems to be an attacking FB rather than a defending one. He takes their corners and freekicks too which would explain his insanely high chances created stats for a FB (almost double any other fullback in the league).

Is it our plan to outscore the oppo this season? Will be fun/painful to watch at the same time. 

Still, cannot be any worse at defending than Bell.

Mowbray's style of football asks for the FBs to be considerable attacking forces, so it makes sense he'd be after Manning.

Yes, and this week Mowbray was talking about TAA and Robertson at Liverpool as role models to the likes of Nyambe...

Im now convinced he’s been on full charm offensive trying to get the likes of Ayala and now Manning on board with his public comments these last couple of weeks.

I still think I would prefer a left back who could defend. All the quotes from qpr fans seem to suggest he’s not good at that part of the game

I think there'll be a lot of goals in Rovers games this season. I worry most of them will be in our net. 

Since we came out of lockdown the goals conceded sequence: 3,2,2,3,2,1,1,3,3,3.

3 goals conceded in 5 out of 10 games. Shockingly poor.

Who did we keep the clean sheet against? 

I genuinely don't remember any since that dour game against Stoke back in February.

Must have had a charm coach cos usually they go somewhere else after Tony's talked to them.

We didn't. I read the Millwall defeat wrong! 1-0 to them. We're even shitter than I thought!

I've said a few times, whilst Ayala and a Manning or Douglas would make us a better side on paper, we'll always concede goals under Mowbray.

I just don't think he has it in him to set up a side to go away from home and grind out a 1-0 win on a grim Tuesday night somewhere.

Yep, definitely more to it than just personnel. We could have AC Milan's defence of the 90's and we'd still concede a hatful.

A bet that delivers with something like an 80% certainty on Rovers' games - more than 1.5 goals!

Fill your boots - today will be a winner.  Odds not great at 1.31 but a 31% return on £100 is way, way in excess of what you get in a savings' account!

I'm not a betting man so what would I get if I went for 3 or 4 goals in a Rovers match?

Odds vary match by match.

For today (odds pretty low) you would presently (they fluctuate up and down) get:

  • More than 1.5 goals in game (ie 2 or more goals) - 1.31- £0.31 winnings for each £ bet
  • More than 2.5 goals in game (ie 3 or more goals) - 1.93 - £0.93 winnings for each £ bet
  • More than 3.5 goals in game (ie 4 or more goals) - 3.3 - £2.30 winnings for each £ bet

I've gone big on more than 1.5 goals in today's game.

Broadly, if you'd have bet £20 / game on more than 1.5 goals / game last season (given 80%+ certainty ie result delivered), you would have been almost £200 in pocket after 46 league games

And if he did, people would moan we're boring. 

Even with limited ability, the right personnel on the pitch can organise a decent backline. Which for me is the biggest issue. Mowbray can only do so much from the sidelines, you need a keeper who can bark orders and a vocal centre half with experience who can read a game well. Hopefully we've just signed those 2 players but time will tell.

Strikers that can't score, strikers on the flanks, full-backs who can't defend---I'm worried Tony doesn't get the basics of this game.

I'll dig out my Subbuteo if that helps!
