Warburton is a bell end. I thought that was the best QPR team we’ve seen for a while though. Fortunately we were still better

If he was bright enough to work out that the ref was giving decisions on the basis of who shouted loudest then surely he should have just got his back room staff and bench to shout louder. Simples innit Markieboy.

Apparently our ground is a “so called” tough place to play.
Bloftus Road seems a difficult enough place for them to play us, never mind our gaff. Still, must be difficult without 200 home fans baying for opposition blood.

'Best QPR team for a while'. Damned with faint praise.

Maybe if Stuart Atwell or Stroud was the ref. But it was definitely a yellow card from which ever angle you look at it and that made of two them in Kane's case.
The second one of which could have been a straight red.

Kane got the second yellow because our bench shouted the loudest.

No, really. It was us shouting that did it, not Kane driving his studs into Forss’s thigh.

incredible Comment. Just incredible.

Interesting how that report got into a local Aberdeen paper. We're well above the radar now.

After ther bristol defeat, ra ra twitter tweeted how one sided it was to them yet still lost.
Bcfc responded with the fella looking at them as if to say you sure .

A bit like warburton saying his keeper didnt have a shot to save all night but conceded twice.

Yep, he doesn't quite get the idea that the keeper therefore had two shots to save.

On this occasion, is he not referring to the Bristol City game?
Ah my bad, I assumed it was his chat after the game Friday. That'll teach me not pay attention to what I'm jumping in on.

Most are tbh! I think the best pieces by clubs are ones which are neutral and don't comment on other clubs or try to be funny.
Yep agree. I hate it when our lot have a nibble back after games. It just looks petty.

Yep, they've managed to buy the 27 acre site and reckon a new Academy is the way forward.
I wonder if they have plans to move out of W12 to Heston?

Some football club Twitter accounts are embarrassing. How they let these media teams get away with it is beyond me.
I've been thinking this for a while, but not commented at the risk of sounding old and cranky. IMHO there's plenty of outlets for 'bantz' on supporter, fanzine etc accounts, but official clubs accounts should be above all that. No doubt it brings traffic and engagement, so those who matter are happy enough with it, but too often it's just desperate, unfunny stuff and just appeals to the sort of fan who think Paddy Power are hilarious. I know not everyone can do it, but the Bristol Bears RUFC account is a prime example of how actually be properly funny and engaging, and not just look like Soccer AM rejects. For what it's worth, I think the Brentford account generally stays the right side of the line and hasn't, from memory, posted anything half as embarrassing as QPR have managed twice in less than a week.

No chance. But f***ing off back to where they came from would be good. Going bust would be better

3 times in a week.

About our stadium.
Tweeting a vid of the loaf after our game saying we had fans in the ground.
The Bristol tweet.

4 if you want to include the bitter loaf saying their keeper didn’t have a save to make all night, while conceding 2 goals to Bristol

If they do, then all the poops will struggle to get there from Ruislip and Uxbridge...
Yep be like us from that area trying to get to the Bees. For me to LR it's a bus and 3 tube trains or 3 buses and a long walk. Hence why I'll continue to car it. Just need to sort the parking.

It should work in our favour as those areas and northolt, greenford, hayes etc are all Brentford catchments

Did a trial run today (for tomorrow!) 2x buses and 2x trains - 1hr 25mins going; 55mins for the return trip!
Done the tfl route planner a couple of times and it tells me piccadilly line to Acton Town and walk is the quickest from Ruislip. Given it's a bus ride to Ruislip for me, if I cant get wifey to give me a lift, it's then 35 minutes to Acton Town and then a 40 minute walk from Acton Town to LR. Bugger that! So alternatively; 331 bus to Ruislip, Piccadilly line to Acton Town, District Line to Turnham Green then District line back to Gunnersbury. Or 331 bus to Ruislip, E7 bus to Ealing Broadway, 65 to Kew Bridge. All equate to 1 1/2 hours each way at best. So driving saves at least 45 minutes each way.

I can’t do the walking anymore. Plus it’s the ‘wifey’ and ‘lifting’ bits I’d have trouble with. She doesn’t want me to go, to start with!
So, Piccalilli >>Acton Tn >>Sth Ealing >> 65 bus>> Kew Br.
Simple, if slow. (Could be a self description...)

40min walk from Acton Town? According to the club it is one of the stations within a 20min walk radius from LR. South Ealing might be a bit nearer but no need to change trains to get there. Sad to say, it is quicker for me to get to QPR and last time we were at Watford it didn't take too long.

It's a pain from Ruislip. Normally get a bus to greenford and meet with mates and get a lift (cheers Herbert) other than that it's Ealing and then a bus.wish I was doing that tomorrow. Feeling sad.

I go from Ruislip, usually takes about a hour, my route is Ruislip Gardens to North Acton, change to Ealing Broadway this doesn’t normally take longer than 35mins, then 65 bus to the ground, usually 20max to GP so probably 25mins to LR and stops right outside.

MW after the game 'I can't explain the performance to be honest. We were so off the pace. We were below par and we lost duels all over - almost to a man'

Looking grim for QPR in what is their best team for years.
