Won't stop a small handful criticising him, which frankly is starting to piss me off. I get having scapegoats of our worst players all the time, there's always a weak link in a side to be improved. Bu

Its absolutely no coincidence that Elliott on Tuesday, with quite frankly less able team mates around him, was poor. With Rothwell, Brereton, Armstrong and to an extent Johnson round him he looke

Lest we forget, Brereton is still 21. Hope he continues on his trajectory

Wharton can’t pass but this is two games in a row he’s looked a decent defender. Playing well here, we need to capitalise. Buckley playing OK but needs to impose himself on the game if he’s playing the Holtby role. We look much better with Kaminski and Johnson involved.

Fantastic performance so far except for finishing. We seem to have QPR beat across the pitch.

The key for me on why we play so well today versus the last few games is :

1) Kaminski lets us play so much higher. He forms a third CB with the defenders going wide when we are in the opposition half. Pears just can't do that and it means the whole 433 doesn't really work as it sits too deep.

2) Rothwell allows us to run from deep so effectively and transition to attack. He covers a lot more ground and uses the ball a lot more effectively than Evans, Johnson and Trybull.

3) QPR haven't done their home work and seem to like to play open and and a high line. Also they don't seem have any special players who can beat out 1 on 1.

The absolute key players for me in this system are are Kaminski and Rothwell. Without them we need a different way of playing.

Which is puzzling as the scouting report on Wharton was that he had a good range of passing.

Not too bad, Young Wharton doing well,.just a few way way wayward passes.  How good is Elliot, wish he was our player. 17 years d damn good un.

We have to start finishing.

Probably not had much in game experience of needing to be good on the ball considering the level he has played at. Encouraging that he looks a good defender though. He only needs to reach a certain level of on the ball ability to be effective at this level which will hopefully develop over time.

How good is Joe Rothwell when he is on it. Best player in the team on this form.

I love Buckley’s technique, really hope his lack of speed doesn’t stop him being a top player.

Armstrong looking dangerous, should have knocked it wide to Brereton when he won the ball in the middle there. Greedy git sometimes.

JRC is tough dude, positioning a bit scary at times.

Nyambe looks much better today.

We will win this.
