Excellent example of leaving it to someone else by Rio yesterday.
He doesn't do physical defending but happy to point a lot and help analyse afterwards.

Like ours? Hmmm. Just a quickie chaps. Lots of hillarity on the QPR and Fulham threads. But so far we have 1 point out of 6 against two teams that we need to be beating if we are to stay up, and a 6-6 draw against a 4th Division team :shrug:. Just urging a bit of caution, that's all. :suspect:

You think we should be beating teams like Bournemouth away?

I think it's exactly the sort of place we need to be picking up a point in order to survive. And I think we should be beating Charlton at home. They are mediocre in this division and there are much stronger teams to come. Fingers crosses :sorted:.

Yes we need to be beating last seasons 9th placed team away from home who just happened to win their first away game 4-0. Now we haven't achieved that we're as good as relegated. That wasn't your finest ever post.

Not necessarilly, no. My post was perhaps a little rushed. But the points are, 1) we've got to pick up points somewhere. If not at home to Charlton and away to Bournemouth, both mediocre opposition by this division's standards in my honest and humble, then where are they going to come from? 2) Are we not singing a little too soon, knocking the starts of other clubs when we only have one point on the board ourselves? :shrug: The next few days will be very telling in my opinion and will give us a decent clue. Three or four points from the next six needed. Less than that, then I reckon we're in for one hell of a struggle, no matter how pretty it looks. Very happy with QPR and Fulham's start, not as convinced as most by our own. Perhaps it's because I'm not there. ;)

Tough times ahead for QPR?

I think Stoke will be fine but it is shaping up to be a major struggle at the bottom of the table for QPR.
They came up late through the play-offs, which always makes preparations more difficult, but the players that manager Harry Redknapp has brought in have not gelled yet.
Tactically, there have been problems too. Against United, their approach just did not work.
They had two wide players in midfield, three guys tight in the middle and one up front, but they just sat off United and let them play.
You cannot do that in the Premier League. The other two promoted teams, Burnley and Leicester, do not sit off anybody.
They go and have a go and close the opposition down and, unless QPR start doing that too, they are going to have a real problem.

Had to rely on set pieces for the goals, one from double agent Caulker :mad1:
Looked very leaky at the back.

"To be honest, I don't even know how clocks work. I was given one once, but it's still in the box. I had to get Sandra to get it working, it was winding me up so much. I mean, I can barely even tell the time..."
wait a minute,
I will be back in a tick.

An excellent start to the campaign, and the next 5 games should see the good run continue:

West Ham (a)
Liverpool (h)
Aston Villa (h)
Chelsea (a)
Man City (h)

Lawro's predictions continue to provide excellent reading material.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/29435443

West Ham v QPR

I called QPR flaky last week and I am still not convinced by them, although Charlie Austin did score a lovely goal in their defeat by Southampton.

I just don't think QPR have got enough quality in any area of the pitch. I thought their manager Harry Redknapp would sort that out over the summer because of his vast experience, record of picking up players in the transfer market and his ability to get his teams playing in a certain way.
So far, though, their season has been the antithesis of that for me.

On occasions, QPR have not even looked ordinary - they have looked poor. And despite having some good individuals, they just don't look like a team. They are searching for an identity at the moment.

West Ham, in contrast, have impressed me. They look a completely different animal to last season when they were one of the teams struggling to create chances and score goals.

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Impressed with West Ham so far this season. Qpr on the other hand, only have a couple of quality players. We'll be seeing them soon imo
