This, like all boro games, has 0-0 written all over it...

 

...So I'm going for 3-3 thriller, penalties and sendings off galor


And hopefully the team bus "accidentally" runs joey Barton over in the car park, and then reverses to make sure!!

Both teams not in the greatest of form so is only pointing one way and that's to a poorly played out draw.

 

QPR at least have something to play for and there's no doubt that Kevin Doyle will probably score, so maybe 1-1 or 1-0 QPR for this one.

We've done well at home against some of the top teams in the division so i have a feeling we'll nick it 1-0 with a long range effort from Ledesma against his old club. :cool:

5 red cards and 4-4 with Tomlin to score 8 goals. Let's go.

No idea what the score will be - they need it more than we do but maybe we can play unencumbered given we are neither in danger of going down and have no practical chance of the playoffs. I was just looking and note that since the home loss to Brighton on 14th December we have played 16 league games, losing three away (where we did not score), winning 6 and drawing 7 (5 of which 0:0). That's 25 points out of 48, so 72 prorate for the season - a clear platform is being built where we can defend and not concede despite changes in the back four and in goal. Theoretically with Tomlin/Butterfield at no. 10, Graham up front and any one of Adomah, Ledesma and Carayol on the wing, we should be scoring goals for fun -so maybe we will win 4:0 on Saturday. Carayol will be missed but we will have to cope. Would be good to ensure 'Arry (should have managed Engerlund) and (the voice of the people) Joey Barton go away empty handed - I live in hope.

 

Some squad they have by the way: http://www.qpr.co.uk/team/

All 8 goals are penalties too :P

Well, without wanting to steal Baz's thunder, the omens appear to be good for this one.

 

QPR are on a poor run of form, which began 8 games ago. In that time they've won just twice, drawn twice and lost 4 times. That could be enough for the Championship's joint draw specialists (Forest have drawn as many games as Boro - 15) to sneak a win. They have actually scored fewer goals than Boro (just the 1 less) but have one of the best defences in the league, with only Brighton matching their 28 goals conceded...which could be a problem, as we've been unable to score against the likes of Bournemouth, Leeds and Doncaster, lately.

 

BORO: W10| D15| L11| F44| A38| Pts 45| Pos 13th

QPR: W18| D9| L8| F43| A28| Pts 63| Pos 4th

 

 

Last 6 Games

BORO: L D L W D D

QPR: L L D W L W

 

 

Historically, these two teams haven't played each other much, just 39 times in total, but our home record is pretty decent:

 

Played 19

 

Boro Wins 10

Draws 5

QPR Wins 4

 

Boro Goals 28

QPR Goals 20

 

Biggest Boro Win 6-2 (1970-71)

Biggest QPR Win 0-3 (2010-11)

 

Last Boro Win 2-0 (2009-10)

Last QPR Win 0-3 (2010-11)

 

The reverse fixture this season ended in a 2-0 win for QPR, however we seem to have a record for getting narrow wins at home, so I have a tiny spark of hope we can get the 3 points this weekend.

 

 

My Prediction Middlesbrough 1 - 0 QPR

arguable Strachans greatest moment as boro boss was at loftus road

on the flip side my worst away experience was there waaaaaaay back in the days of thier plapstik pitch ...we lost 6-1 and it was the main motd game.

 

 

but this is on our turf innit but to get any points were gonna have to score at least one this time i reckon .

for many weeks i thought we will sneak games or even get 2 clear goals but this one for me has defeat all over it. QPR are waiting to hit form and i think this week will be the week. im sorry to say but i think we are going to get our pants pulled down 3-0 or 3-1 defeat for me.

QPR are very prosaic upfront. There is very little invention so I think with our defence playing the way it is, only a daft mistake or a dodgy referring decision will mean we will concede.

 

I'll go 1-0 Boro or possibly 1-1 thanks to the ref granting QPR a dodgy penalty.

I was just about to say all that :@

 

Nah, only kidding... saved me a job :D

 

Goals in this one, as QPR will actually try to attack us leaving space to get into. See this as being quite an entertaining game.

    • part of the reason others have only scored 6 is because he makes selfish runs, rather than create space for others, he loses possession in the last third, which means others cannot get high up the pitch and join him, and he rarely passes and isn't creative.
