QPR v Boro 1-1 (Akpom)

Recommended Posts

Hugill isn't there to score an unlikely worldie this time, so there's that.

If we play like we did vs Bournemouth I think we can get something here. The big question still is whether we can start turning our efforts into actual chances & ultimately goals.

We've definitely been playing better than I expected us to, if we carry that forward I think we might be able to get those elusive three points. Doesn't take a genius to figure out that we need to start taking our chances, but I'm sure NW has something in mind to fix it. I'm going to go for an optimistic 2-1.

Good to see he back at Rockcliffe though. Should be back to normal next Saturday all being well

Ash Fletcher is fit too, thankfully. so full squad tomorrow it sounds like. With Akpom (likely) on the bench, we are starting to sort of see options to change things and not just have a bench full of teenagers.

Score Predictions?

QPR 1 - 2 Boro (don't ask me why - I've no idea)

Lineup?

I get the feeling Jepson will go for continuity, with it being early in the season and the lads putting in a decent performance last time out. 

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

Reckon he'll be on the bench, in case things aren't working out and we need some new (hat) tricks to bamboozle QPR with.

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

Er...okayyy...you have some interesting dreams.

Who are the better Rangers?

Queen's Park?

US Army?

Hermione (G)Ranger?

None of the above...

On a more serious note, it won't be easy. QPR are a decent team, but I think (and hope) we can just squeak a win from this one.

 Same as the Bournemouth game

You know, I was going to include Park Ranger Smith, but I thought it might be a bit obscure. Judging by the comments, obviously not.

Early days I know but I am not convinced we are capable of scoring. Whereas QPR do not seem to have the same issues.

However. Boro do tend to suprise.

I think it will be a tight game. We need a win under our belts to spur us on and hopefully we will get one here. Heart says 2-0 Boro.

However. Head says 2 - 1 QPR. (As they are averaging 2 goals a game atm.)

Would like to see Akpom get some game time but think it will depend on whether Fletch is fit. And how the game is going.

We certainly could do with getting as many points as possible under our belts before injuries deplete the squad further.

UTB.

Looking forward to this game, we have a very mixed bag of results at QPR over recent years and as long as we do not have a Dibble day we should be ok

Same team, but as others have mentioned, Chuba for Fletcher, as Fletch picked up a knock .. 

We will win this, I reckon

If Bettinelli pulls off another worldy like he did against Bournemouth we'll be fine.

Look at that, top bins that is.

    • 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.
