Good contest so far.

Looked a penalty to me, not sure Ayala was offside.

But our defending is still embarassing, we looked like conceding from everything.

Good to have George back though!

At fault for the equaliser and gave away a needless corner resulting in their second. The clean sheets are now a thing of the past

Is it seriously not down to Woodgate that our defence is the most vulnerable it's been in years? Everytime a team come forward we look like conceding. 

Totally appreciate not every OG is his fault, but our defending is miserable 

Our defence isn't the problem.  Look at the table and see where we stand on goals conceded, before today we were 10th, which isn't exactly terrible.

You can't blame Woodgate for that.  That is pure bad luck.

Given the number of OGs we've conceded so far this season, I think its more down to bad coaching.

You think a goalkeeper palming a shot onto a defender is bad coaching?  It was bad luck, nothing more than that, frustrating as it still may be.

"You can't blame Woodgate..." Yeah you can. Would people be saying the same about other managers at other clubs, that are playing poorly across 90mins? Its not a game of 10/20mins is it. Get what you deserve in football.

1 own goal is bad luck, several over the course of the season is serious ineptitude

Damn we are so unlucky......

More like we stop playing at the end of each half, just panic and invite the opposition to come at us.

It’s going to take a divine intervention for us not to get relegated. I’ve already prepared myself for the inevitable. We will go down. I have no doubt about that.

Players being in the wrong place at the wrong time...over and over again...is bad coaching IMO.

We need to be braver in possession, which I'd say is a common complaint against us.  The wingbacks are no use if they aren't able to get behind the opposition on a regular basis so they've got to do that more.  The front two were getting too isolated as the game wore on but if we could keep hold of the ball a bit better whilst moving forwards then this would change.

We didn't collapse.  We conceded a goal due to bad defending and then one due to bad luck.  It's not great but we've played worse, that's not saying much like.

The last 10 minutes was all QPR

That's ok but I don't think you can see we collapsed.  They got lucky with a second goal or we'd be going in level.

    • Not to prolong the point for too long as last night exhausted me so much so that I want to frankly rid politics and politicians from the system for a couple of years, right now... 😂 but the proposed funding for the NHS doesn't stack up. Admittedly, contrary to what some on the left say, I'm pretty sure the Tories recently have been putting more in even in real terms and that's all well and good... but the NHS is becoming more expensive due to the ageing population without even considering the strain that the level of funding is putting on workers, especially with little to no financial reward from it. It's one of the best things about our country and for it to remain that way, we have to fund it more than we ever have. I'd frankly throw a lot of the nationalisation policies in the bin if it meant we just gave the NHS the money it needed to keep being great. If as I suspect, we do enter into a trade deal with the US with anything to do with health on the table, that number will rise even more. Tories are more likely to make tax cuts than ask for more tax to pay for anything so by that measure, the lowest rungs on the societal ladder of our country will fall off first. The NHS, mental health, social care, etc. there's not enough going in to solve these problems. Labour's spending plans were through the roof but the Tories are barely spending anything at all based on their plans. I was listening to Mark Francois on LBC the other week talking to a fella with a wife and 2 kids who looks after both his now disabled parents as a carer so their only income is his carer's allowance and his wife's job, £14k for looking after children with special needs, something like £18k overall? He asks Francois what the Tories will do for him and the best he can come up with is that over time, he'll be able to keep more of his money from tax. I sincerely worry for people like that who contribute so much in a very small, localised circle getting little support from this government. It genuinely makes me sad that people who can't do anything but put a brave face on every day and just get by get nothing in return for it.
    • I mean, I know it's pretty difficult to trust any politician, especially Johnson, but the NHS and improving it was like the first key point (after Brexit obviously) that he talked about, so fingers crossed he actually legitimately sticks to what he said in his speech, because I didn't disagree with any of it. Now I suppose we just have to wait and see..
