not sure he meant that all fans who dont attend games are keyboard warriors and the real fans are only those who attend, but more the fans who only sit and write negative things on forums and social m

No matter the result today this is much more like it, we’ve competed, made chances and got goals. Yes it may not be perfect but we’ve played football for once.

Why would it be to spite keane? Surely randolph playing rubbishes all of the rumours from this week.

Good post Denzel.

Unfortunately i see us losing but scoring. 2-1 to QPR.

In terms of team, based on latest injury update i would go with


Paddy Ayala Fry


Dijk Wing Howson Coulson



Subs: GK, Wood, Bola, Malley, Tav, Johnson, Brummel

I fear an easy win for QPR, and I suspect Hugill will relish scoring against us. He's scored half as many goals this season as our entire team, probably because there are other QPR players in the same postcode as him.

As for Brexit vs biscuits, I'd love to forget the last three years ever happened (in politics and also in sport). I'll take a pack of milk chocolate Hobnobs, if anyone's offering.

Darren Randolph is in the Ireland squad for the game against Denmark. Surely he must be back at the weekend then?

He is being given every chance of making the Denmark game BD. He is not expected to play against New Zealand four days earlier but Randolph is hopeful himself that he can be available for the qualifier

Going down for this game (not too sure why) and expectations are certainly lowest in a long time, especially on recent visits to the Capital. 

I'm going for a 1-1 result with both Britt and Hugill scoring - Yes I said Britt! Not sure if this will be seen as a decent result or a poor one... Guess it will depend more on the Hull & Barnsley home games to make that conclusion. 

Starting line up will be whoever is not injured now, but I am on the side of pushing some more youth lads in the squad hoping these will show more fight and a willingness to win the game. Loftus road is struggling for a decent attendance lately, so with a loud following from Boro, and something/anything to shout about, we should at least be able to make it a fight. 

If not, that extended 3hr 40 minute train ride home will certainly be a depressing one!

    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
    • I absolutely knew that was coming yesterday when I saw he played the same players line up aside from the keeper. From the parts of the game I could stomach to watch and highlights after, the keeper seemed to do a solid job so he should defiantly get another game too see if he does the same again as actually he might be a okay backup keeper (as long as first one is Betenelli) for next season.  Question, can anyone justify or understand why he played Britt? surely he of played someone who would be here next season and ideally as the game didn't matter someone like Fletcher who needs to get his confidence back or Coburn you tell him to relax, go out their show me what you can do and see if you can get a goal to get us back in this. That way your evaluating your options for next season as well as giving yourself a chance as Britts not likely to be motivated to play for you.  Tell you what annoyed me most about that game however, why start out with 5 at the back? qpr don't usually do this but they set out to with an attacking formation because the game didn't matter we set out to what keep them out and try grab a goal?! Warnock seriously why would you do that you may as well of attacked and given the fans an spectacle how good would have it been if the rest of the games this season we had given youth a chance and had a high scoring end to the season even if we conceded a lot as well. In my opinion you could have got a lot of fans back on side by doing that as they'd of been a good feeling around the club, instead of alienating fans like me who supported what he was doing in a large part this season and last season. Warnock in my opinion next 4 games you must reverse this decision if you setout too keep the position out in the next 4 and grind out an 1-0, not playing youth you are as bad as Pulis.        
    • When Johnson was playing pre Christmas he delivered to the best of his ability which was more effective than that which we have seen since January from his replacements. At the end of last season when his contract was up and others jumped ship he stayed and fought so I doubt Johnson is in a clique but if he is, it is only that which Warnock has created through his own actions.  Sadly for Warnock those cliques he has talked about within the Club are now manifesting within the fanbase in terms of attitudes and confidence in him. There were those who were totally against him from the off and those totally supportive of him with a few undecided which is often the case in any newly appointed Manager. Now we have those who were against him having the ammunition to say "told you so", the undecided now joining them as the mess just keeps getting bigger week by week and those in the supportive camp now wavering or indeed fully shifting to wanting him gone in the summer. Groups of like minded individuals are not uncommon, its when they become destructive or disruptive at least in the minds of one party that they usually get labelled as "cliques". Footballers are flesh and blood like fans and they will inevitably have their doubts and their belief tested when things are going wrong so it is little surprise to hear that cliques exist, we had it when Karanka was winning promotion and far worse followed in the Premiership. That said, how on earth does an experienced Manager and Coaching staff allow a clique mentality to evolve in the first instance assuming there wasn't one already? There again how can an experienced Manager be so damning in his assessment of the playing staff and then pick several Players who have regularly underperformed and let the side down repeatedly? Putting Britt on yesterday is right up there with the most bizarre of Pulis decisions. It's hardly surprising that a clique (or as I suspect several) has evolved.
    • From what I have read elsewhere I believe there is an £8M deal in place.
