Grow up

we stole three points,  we did nothing to win that game, half our players strolled around like it was pre season,  bell for one was shocking,  dack did nothing of note and his touch and controll was poor,  the starting line up was poor, the way we set up and went about it was poor,   dont let us winning mask the face we were incredible poor today, and very lucky to have not been apart of the dullest 0-0 for a long time

Did you copy and paste this from one of your other Match Thread posts through the season?

Agree that Bell seems to be slowing down the game when the ball gets to him. Needs a bit of urgency, doesn’t half seem to break into a sprint

Best bit was the QPR players reacting to our time wasting for the last 5 minutes after they had pretty much tried to do that the whole game. Have to admit it was funny when BB pretended to think it was a corner and not a throw in (got booked for it though).

Great win, poor performance but we were solid.

Lenihan and Williams strolled it.

Would put Mulgrew in for Bell and put Williams at Left back, and the team that finished the game would be my starting 11, with Bennett and Nyambe battling over RB.

yeah we have stolen the game, needed a penalty to do it, we have looked extremley poor all game until rothwell palmer and brereton have been on the same pitch, dack not been at the races but has the goal for us, reed wasted out wide looks for better in the middle,  i dont like us going to defensive at home with both smallwood and evans, have one with reed in the middle and the front 3 can interchange with armstrong, brereton, dack, graham, palmer and rothwell and bennett

Take a step back man, enjoy the result. 5 points off top spot.

Great win, really poor performance for the most part but we will take that

Didnt happen for any of our attacking players until Big Ben won us the penalty

The reason dack didn't have a good game is because he has zero support from the centre midfield!! Dack is not to blame - I personally think these dull performances are down to the quality in the centre.

A dire game for the most part, mainly because of QPR’s spoiling tactics and several of our players being below par. For all the teeth gnashing though, if Graham has brought his shooting boots we’d have won at a canter.

No doubt the decisive sub was young Ben, he made the penalty and him and Dack in the bottom corner the last few minutes was priceless.

QPR didn’t have one serious effort on goal so I can’t see that we “stole the game”.

Stick to Fifa. If you expect every game to be 100% quality attacking and running a game, you’re a moron. We defended excellently today, Williams was particularly good. Armstrong, Reed, Evans, Smallwood et al all worked really hard if lacking a bit of final product.

We never looked like losing to one of the form teams. We lacked quality, that’s a given but to come with some ridiculous comments sums up what kind of self entitled fan you are. Grow up

Reed, Rodwell and Davenport waiting in the wings! Actually in Reeds case, on the wing!

Good result! However not the best performance! This Smallwood & Evans partnership in the middle has to stop! Sorry I'd rather watch paint dry....

Think Evans is out for Rotherham match next so there will be a shuffle for centre mid. Rotherham won today though, won’t be easy

It's a one nil win that's all that maters, screw the entertainment value we've had plenty this season and there'll be plenty more but that was an important three points on the board !

Great to get 3 points, but boy ,why do we have to line-up so negatively at home against an average team.

It's QPR's first defeat in 5 games. Add to that, the first goal scored against them in three games - even Derby, an "positive" team, couldn't beat them. It was an awful match, but we can thank McClaren for that - someone who's doing a "stop the rot" job and doing a pretty good job at that.

Super to win against a stubborn team like that - just when I thought we were getting a point or none.

Is it also true that WE received a yellow card for time-wasting over the course of 4 minutes, when they received none over the course of 90?

We can be flattered one of the form teams came and stopped playing Football. 😂😂

disgraceful time wasting starting from the first half. Ah, sweet justice 😂

QPR remarkably disappointing- thankfully.

Rovers did the job in the end but the strength in depth means that below energy performers should expect a spot of bench warming.

Danny Graham had a stinker- the game would have been transformed had he taken the first half chances.

Says a lot that we played at half pace against the form team of the division and could still win.

And Brereton is showing decisively when he comes on- a lovely cameo at the Hawthorns last week and an as professional drawing of the penalty foul as you could ever see today.

A question to everyone, do you think this squad is as good or better than the one bowyer created with Cairney, Marshal, King and the rest. I think it's not miles away.

 

I also feel that this year is the chance to get to the play offs as I think the likes of Dack will be gone in the summer and getting the likes of reed and Palmer to name a few back will be far less likely next year. 

 

I personally feel this league is there for anyone's taking and that there isn't a standout team and a few results can change the ambition of any teams season. 

 

Do people feel that Mowbray may possibly be another nearly man like bowyer where he creates a talented team but doesn't get the best from it?

The Bowyer squad was significantly better than this one but Mowbray is a proper football manager.

Yes play-off slots are there for the taking and automatic promotion is if we have an exceptional January window through concertinaing the three window strategy into one.

No reason to assume we would not pick up PL loanee gems again next season; getting Reed signed is going to be a high priority Sparky please.

No there is no reason to assume Mowbray would be a nearly man
