What the actual ***.

We should have had a penalty.

Saville really should have done better there. Decent half for us. Stoke look very poor.

Given the improvement we've seen in the first 45 minutes of Warnock's reign compared to the entirety of Woodgate's tenure, I wonder how much better still this afternoon's performance might have been if he'd had the full 'pre-season' period in charge.

Decent first half. I can't imagine it would be the same result so far if Woodgate was in charge still!

Up the Boro

Yeah not only should Saville not slice that that badly, when he does that absolutely should be a penalty on Britt for me, cleaned out by the CB coming right through him. 

All in all, think Britt, Fletch & Spence have all looked very bright & Howson seems to be handling the holding role well.

A few odd reffing decisions gone against us IMO, but otherwise an okay showing.

Was that a shot or panicked pass?

Great first half could’ve should’ve been up 2/3 but I’ll take that so far

We have had so many goal scoring opportunities in that half . This is far better it is litteraly cross the ball in to the box at every opportunity but it's effective!

Saville definitely should have done better. Still, we've been the better side and we're very much in control of the tactical battle here. Maddo has it spot on, their defence is void of pace and we're using what pace we do have to work them hard and we've got the better of them on a few occasions now. It's not pretty but so far it's been effective.

If Fletcher plays the pass across the face instead of pulling it back thats 2-0. The centre back gambled on the pull back and left Britt completely unmarked. I'm not confident in the clean sheet so we need another.

Big improvement from last week.  The players look like they have had clear instructions and understand what they are trying to do.

How’s that not a penalty? 
Ref made 3 crap decisions against us now. 
the foul on Spence early on and the fletcher one near the end. McNair was through on goal

Well, no pretence of us playing any football but I suppose you can't blame Warnock for that.  Win the ball, get the ball forward as quickly as possible down the channels and let the attackers get after it.  Not exactly sophisticated but also not a complete shambles like last week so got to be happy with that.

    • Hope Morsy starts and we get to see a bit of Akpom.   Would be great to pick up our first three points here, otherwise were falling behind already - not good for morale. QPR shouldn't be as difficult as our first two prem opponents, and Grant may give us an edge over them tactically, so fingers crossed for a 2-1 Boro win. Britt and Saville to score.
