 £38 to visit the dump that is the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium (Loftus Road to proper fans)

And people wonder why attendances are falling. 

 

 

I actually think it's a proper atmospheric ground surrounded by houses on three sides with an almost retro feel to it. The view from the away upper tier is on of the best in the league. When I compare it to some of these soulless edifices it is one of the most enjoyable grounds to visit.

Have to disagree on that I suppose. It's a glorified shed to me, with restricted view from the away end - because of the steep angle of the stand you have to lean forward to see the goal.

Fans are generally OK though. Unlike Millwall, you don't feel threatened there.

Very harsh to drop Downing.

Personally I’d drop Arma for him.

I agree Chaddy, Bennett is bound to play but I'd be surprised if both of Downing or Armstrong start on Saturday

Had to drop someone. Arma's done alright and he'll give us pace on the break.

Was there that Tuesday night in April 95. First time we sang Champions. Had a pint with Peter White before the game.

I would like to see an extended run of games with that line up. There is no way he will drop Armstrong after the Forest game.

However knowing TM, he will tell us all QPR are a 'fantastic footballing side, who use it well on the grass' and we will play Johnson/Evans. 

His line on Holtby not knowing English football in his post match presentation was baffling, so I also don't expect him to start.

Not quite sure thats where I would play Holtby or Armstrong ideally, but for me thats our best bet.

Not disagreeing but in the world Rovers live in financially with FFP / annual losses of £15-20 million , spending £12million in last 12 months on 2 strikers who can’t make your best 18 should be a managerial hanging offence .

Except if it's influenced from upstairs he might have a free pass on that for now.

Probably starting to sound like the Anti-Mercer but I am thinking another game with few chances for us. Also a 2-0 reverse.

I'd like to see Holtby alongside Travis. This seems to be the most popular choice on here. 442 please:

Walton

Nyambe - Lenihan - Williams - Cunninham

Rothwell - Travis - Holtby - Downing

Dack - Armstrong

Me too, but the real Travis.  If Trav is going to play like Evans then Holtby and Johnson for the little extra steel and goal threat Johnson can bring.  Travis playing his natural game then yes, Trav and Holtby.  I really like Holtby from what I have seen but want to see how he does over 90 mins.  Good through balls for AA to run on to.  Good crosses for SG or DG.  Sounds ok to me.  Could bare fruit.  Maybe.

Can we convert him to a centre forward?

When did he say that? Didn't catch that part. 

If true, that is an incredible statement, Holtby was hands down the best player on the park when he came on Tuesday night. Will be first name on the teamsheet fairly soon. 

I think we need to start Armstrong up top for a change, and start keeping the bloody ball on the deck for a change. He is very frustrating at times, but he is absolutely rapid, and the long ball to Gally and Graham just isn't working.

With Dack, Rothwell and Holtby the three attacking midfielders. Downing the deep lying playmaker, and Travis the ball winner. That is a very good front 6, and should be aiming for top 6.

There’s an easy answer to that.

Competition for places should be huge. If Graham is having an “Indian Season” then it could be argued that it’s down to having two new strikers breathing down his neck. Those who want to replace him now have to up their game. Benching Graham to play Gallagher et al is cutting of your nose and making the rest of the team play with one hand behind their back at present.

Also, Brereton and Samuel are too good for the U23s but not ready for the first team. Nuttall was sold on for that. Had it not been for the money spent Brereton would have suffered a similar fate - at least on loan. Forest well and truly pulled our pants down. Some very poor scouting went on there.

That's a pretty sad line up considering we have spent £15m on strikers over the past 12 months and not one of them gets a look in!

Yup, and to me, none of them are good enough at this current time. It's really sad mate.
