I think Pears is fit, Woody just using his knock as an excuse to complain about the squad size.

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

Not necessarily. Could mean he's back for that time or potentially back for that time. He's the first choice keeper, I would thoroughly expect them and him to take the risk if they can.

Crap, was really hoping he would be ready.

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!

Yup. And I forgot that when putting together my U23 mixed team, I still left him out of the squad whilst thinking he was available. 😂

    • I still don't get.  Lots of people are successful relative to their starting point in life but not everyone wants to be because some people don't have ambition at all.  So the fact that some people aren't trying shouldn't preclude other people from trying, and the same goes for football clubs as well.  If that's what you are suggesting that is?   Ambition and planning aren't one and the same.  You can have ambition but plan poorly and not achieve your aims.  You can make a great plan for one thing but not have one for another and it ends in failure, and it doesn't matter what success you've had in the past. The Golden Thread thing isn't the only plan we seem to have formed over the last few years but none of them last because ultimately they are all at the whim of one person, and that person does whatever he likes in the end.  So for example, he interferes in transfers and buys a player that he wants.  That isn't part of the plan, and it actually screws with the plan that is in place, but it's still ambitious.  Another example would be Gibson making it clear following relegation that our aim was to go straight back up.  That was his aim or ambition.  He appointed a new manager, sanctioned heavy spending, and then a few months later changed the manager, and suddenly the spending was a mistake, and had to be 'put right', at least according to the new manager.  I don't recall if Gibson had anything to say for himself at the time though? As I said, I don't see what anyone's personal circumstances have to do with a haphazard approach to running a football club? But that last bit in bold there, shouldn't be a given, that's my ultimate point, and fans accepting it is a big part of the problem in my opinion.
    • Warnock clearly rates Tav, he has also brought in Kebano, Bolasie, Watmore and NML.  I know we have had a few hoof ball games of late but I struggle to see how those five players skill sets fit the big Striker to hoof it up to mantra. Without doubt Warnock likes a big Striker but he's not the only Manager to have that preference and his sides have also had other players like Hoilett and NML as recent examples from Cardiff that are more than just the footballing equivalent of Neanderthals. 
    • (H) Barnsley v Birmingham (H) Brentford v Rotherham (A) Bristol City v QPR (H) Coventry v Derby (D) Millwall v Blackburn (H) Norwich v Luton (H) Preston v Bournemouth (D) Reading v Sheffield Wed (H) Stoke v Wycombe (A) Swansea v Middlesbrough
    • This to me feels very much like the Mowbray era of the type of job he asked to do, get rid of the big wages in players like  Britt for example bring in players who can do the same or better job for less and get competent coaching staff in who know what they are doing. I think personally Gibson trying to replicate the way he got promotion last time by getting someone in to balance the books and then have one big push towards promotion with the next manager.    If i am right, will that work? time will tell. 
    • Yeah,it still goes on,massive money changing hands there, Best of luck trying to drive past one on a narrow road,its like they own the rd & you have no business on it whatsoever, I tried it once and i threw it over a ditch!! Harder than it looks to follow to contours & falls on the rd.
