QPR v Boro 1-1 (Akpom)

Recommended Posts

4907778.jpg

When - Saturday 26th September, 2020, KO 15:00

Where - The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium

Why - Because it's time for football, duh!

So, this bizarre season continues with a trip to QPR, and a ground where we've had very mixed fortunes over the years. Last season we drew 2-2, back when the world was normal. Well as normal as it can be when you have a Wotsit in the White House and Wurzel Gummidge in Number 10, that is.

Our Lord and Saviour Neil of Warnock will still be self isolating with Covid-19 for this, so expect to see monseuirs Jepson and Blackwell in the dugout.

No idea where Leo is. If anyone has seen him, please return to

The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough, England, TS3 6RS.

Talking points:

Score Predictions?

Lineup?

Will Chuba Akpom make his debut, scoring his first of many hat-tricks for the club?

Will Leo appear out of nowhere mid-match, storm onto the pitch and headbutt the ref?

Who are the better Rangers?

Queen's Park?

US Army?

Hermione (G)Ranger?

Oh and just because it will never not be funny:

1. 1-1

2. Same as the Bournemouth, injury dependant. 

3. Yes he'll make his debut, if Fletcher is injured I think he'll start. No hat-tricks in this game.

4. Leo will go full Graeme Souness and plant a Boro flag in the centre circle.

5. Power Rangers surely?

Good post DZ. Loving the easy flow of it all.

I thought Warnock was back? Read he needs to self isolate for 10 days from day he felt unwell. That being last Tuesday so 10 days takes him to friday?

1. 2-1 to us

2. I would rather Paddy moved in to midfield at expense of Saville and Fry came  in back for Paddy. Wont happen tho.

3. Come on as a sub.

4. I hope he still here somewhere.

5. Walker Texas Ranger aka Chuck Norris.

I fancy QPR to be top half this season because I think they are a tight knit unit. They have one win in two and I thought we deserved a win on our last improved game. However I think we still need at least 3 to 4 good players to be consistent. So I should edge towards QPR but my heart says we are capable so a 1-1 draw..

No reason why we can’t win this, after watching QPR’s game at Coventry it’s fair to say they were all over the place defensively. 
 

They’ve got some good attacking options, but providing we defend well, I’m quietly confident we can cause them issues going the other way

1. It’s got nil nil written all over it  

2. Morsy for Saville, Akpom for Fletcher  

3. Yes but no 

4. Leo will be a calming influence on the touch line  

5. Ranger Smith of the Jellystone Rangers. B09C6657-CC64-44F3-84B5-3404886BACD5.png.11bb9178592727220b3c8110c5a5ee99.png

    • Good post, @BluebirdinExile. We do have a manager who knows how to grind out results, but the players don't seem to be following his instructions lately! This is the sort of game that makes me glad I don't bet on results, because I have no idea what'll actually happen. We're hopelessly inconsistent atm.
    • Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.   Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs.    All the best to you 👍
    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.
