    Can someone explain to me how we can start with 3 defensive midfielders and just HH up front? At home. And at home to one of the few teams below us in the table.

    Agree totally we can't be playing that formation at home you can sort of except it if it's against top 4 but Sunderland a team we really sould be thinking about beating

    4-2-3-1 did work well for us last year. Very, very well.

    But we had Taraabt in imperious form in the middle of that 3, not Barton. I've seen even Sunderland fans wondering what's become of him since he joined us.

    And didn't we learn earlier this season that with Derry, Faurlin and Barton, it's perm any two from that three? Less is more in this particular case.

    Warnock - HE DOESNT HAVE A CLUE!!!

    I will judge him in January but as the club owner if the manager cant get basic team layout and players correct, will he buy the right players in Jan? If not he needs to be sacked, he has no excuses this time hes got the funding, the facilities, the boards backing.

    SO ANNOYED AT WARNOCK! WHY NOT START TAARABT? AND DJ? AND FOR **** SAKE GET MACKIE AND CONNONLY OFF!

    You seem to moan in every ****ing post.

    The decision to play Derry made sense to me. Sunderland swamped the midfield and it was a good decision to play the three of them to stop them dominating there plus without Ferdinand the central defence was always going to be susceptible so it was important to have Derry there and he played well, allowing Faurlin and Barton to play higher up without getting so caught out like on Sunday. The goals we conceded were all the result of rank defending and Derry had a decent game.

    Connolly and Gabbiddon in the middle of your defence in the Prem is always going to end badly, they are ****e, tactics or no tactics.

    Hi guys, gutted, let such a roar when they scored the winner that i woke the kids and faced the backlash from the kitchen commander.
    My observations: Still the same as last week, and the previous week, and the previous week etc etc
    We lack confidence, passion, energy, drive
    Our defence is sh1te. Look at our goal difference. it does not lie. We need a top top CB and quickly.
    Our midfield is not creating anything. Mackie is just not good enough. Sorry, but he is not. SWP runs ad runs and runs but produces nothing. Also we are not using his pace correctly. His confidence is so low that he now won't or can't take on defenders. A big worry.
    We can't defend crosses or high balls. Every time a cross comes into our box, i hold my breath. Even tiny Suarez can score with a header against us. Teams will now target our poor aerial ability at the back and if this is not addressed quickly we are bucked.
    We look incredibley vunerable to the counter-attack.
    How many goals have we now given away from sloopy passes in our midfield. I really don't want to hear one more person on this forum talking about Faurlin etc etc being a great passer of the ball. Our midfielders (including Faurlin) simply cannot hold onto the ball for more than two passes without giving it away cheaply. Even after 18 games we still have not realised that if you give the ball away cheaply in this league, you will be punished time and time again.
    We have no flair and creativity.
    Our front men are not to blame, they look really isolated up front. Again our midfield not producing.
    We have no hard man or men. Teams should hate coming to LR cause of a fully committed QPR team who take no prisoners. WE ARE A SOFT TOUCH.
    NW has established a team setup around certain players instead of buying players to fit a setup. This will never work. Derry, Faurlin and Barton will not work in the same team. As a result, IMO we now have a manager after 18 games who does not know our best formation and is afraid to drop certain players who are consistently playing badly. IMO if this continues then NW will fall on his own sword. If he is not prepared to make the right/hard calls, even with the limited players he has, then he deserves no sympathy.
    We are currently one of the worst 5 teams in the Prem. Be realistic, no more rubbish talking about Europe or top 8 or midtable. There will be no magic wand in Jan. It will be very difficult to get any decent players then as traditionally clubs do not sell. We need a serious injection of quality.

    The management now have to look closely at themselves and set us up to attack, as if you set up like we did last night then all you do is invite the opposition onto you. We look like we are showing the opposition way way to much respect.
    Please remember that if the footballing gods do decide to smile on us and we beat Swansea then we will turn with 19Pts which is still on track for survival.

    Sorry guys, don't want to be all doom and gloom. I wish all you R's fans a great christmas and a happy new year. Love ye all. Even you CB.

    Agree with just about every word you've said up there NUTS - most particularly that quoted above. First line of defence is always attack. Knives with no blade or point are good for nowt but breakfast - and right now, we're everyone else's breakfast.

    Need to sharpen up or we're toast.

    Have a good 'un yerself NUTSO - and the rest of you Rs!
