QPR (H) - Tuesday 28th Jan

Recommended Posts

Phew!

Almost great first half. Terrible 2nd half.

If Portugal makes you that sluggish, stick to Blackpool beach FFS!

Great first half save for poor defending for their goal. Rothwell going off had a big impact on us in the second half, we lost all the attacking fluidity we had in the first half and it was a much more typical Rovers performance. Nonetheless we ground out the win which is something we have failed to do multiple times in the past, so well done to the team for grinding it out. Onto the next run of good form by the looks of things.

Ended 57-43 in favour of QPR possession. Means they must have had close on 70% possession second half.

Blimey that half was dire. I thought Bennett coming on was the right move, no-one got past Bell again. Nyambe however, for all the love on here, was absolutely awful defensively second half, completely at sea.

Too many no-shows today, inconsistent players.

Superb result; first half all about craft followed by graft in the second

Gallagher had an absolute shocker tonight I'm afraid. When will this experiment with him out wide end? With that said even at the end when he had a great chance with a header right in the middle of the penalty box he put it wide. Graham would have had that one for breakfast.

Left back and right winger needed this week. STOP playing Gallagher wide FFS.

Yet people are saying Bell played well....

The injury to Rothwell cost us our momentum.

We looked very sluggish 2nd half. Holtby could hardly run at all.

Gallagher is very poor and needs a damn haircut, he is only in the team because at least one of the flop strikers have to be as a nod to their cost.

2nd half we lumped too much up to Armstrong which is as effective as a Chocolate Teapot. Not a criticism at all for Arma, he's just a small lad and will never win those high balls.

Very good 1st half though and a great end result ... which is what its all about,

Classic game of 2 halves influenced by Rothwells early departure.

Sharpe pointing out 9 of the 11 finishing the game were under 25 so fair play seeing a tricky game out, when you consider we used to crumble in such games under the experience of Mr Mulgrew, amongst others.

Some really tricky games coming up, absolutely everything pointing to a draw on Saturday against Boro first up.
