Love PG but do agree with aboveThey will offer more up front than our previous two opponents, but considerably less defensively. If we score early it could be 3-0. I suppose there will be the usual pre-match nonsense of PG refusing to say their name etc. I think this is counter-productive, how many times have we beaten Birmingham since the night the piss was taken? QPR may be local rivals but they are just another club and there is no need to wind them up.
Dont know about free scoring. A lot of their goals have pens. In fact I think their new c/f has only scored pens - 4. Nothing from open play.I think it’ll be a good open game and they have the ability to score freely. We’ve not had a game yet this season against a team that is defensively open but pacy and tricky up front. I’d hope our defence is strong enough to neutralise them and that we have the attacking strength to exploit the frailties of the likes of Barbet. There will be goals and QPR will probably become more dangerous after we score and more vulnerable after they do.
I think 3-1 to us in a slightly flattering scoreline where they’ll be kicking themselves and we’re glad to have the solidity of defence we’ve worked on for 2 years. But not a game to be over confident about as they have the ability to nick the same flattering result.
