    Derry Faurlin
    Routledge Tarbs Buzsacky
    HH
    Buz hardly played in our promotion winning team.

    Connelly vs Ned = Karl
    Gorkks vs Lynch = Lynch
    Hill vs Bidwell = Draw
    Derry vs Hall = Hall
    Faurlin vs Luongo = Draw (asked a month ago Faurlin walks it, but maybe Mass is coming good?)
    Routledge vs Pav = Draw
    Tarbs vs No one really in the team to compare Rav doesn't count
    Buzsacky vs Manning = Manning
    HH vs Sylla = Sylla (But Heidar beats Conor and Wash in a 1 up front)

    Right now, both teams at their best, 2010 wins. But only because Tarbs at his best was borderline unplayable.
    Hall is a better midfielder than Derry? FFS. Sylla better than the Iceman?

    One 5-1 win and some folk on here go nuts.

    Also walker only played half a season before being recalled and then loaned to villa. (Played 20 games)

    Routledge also came in on loan and only played 20 games.

    Sylla is a better striker, yes. He's stronger, has a better eye for goal and i think will prove to be one of our better players.

    Hill is playing a similar role to Derry, and doing it very well. Derry was not a good player, he was a grinder that owned his position. Hall is, and has been on this recent run, the key to making it work. So yeah, i think he's at least equal, but has more nouse and so tips it for me.

    Not one 5-1 mate, I've thought this team has been very good for a while, just mis-managed.

    I know people slate Ned but to favour a striker over him at CB is a little harsh....

    Sylla is not a better striker than Heidar was, he's nowhere near. Derry "was not a good player"? WTF are you on?! He was absolutely central to that promotion-winning side, after the maestro that was Adel Taarabt. Anyway, you've achieved your aim Topper, we're arguing!

    central to the side, but as an individual, not a good player. One could argue the very nature of him being able to muscle games without natural talent makes him a better player, so i'd go with that. Some players are better in a team, rather than as individuals?

    Have to agree to disagree on Heidar, too early to really tell i suppose, given a run on the form we've shown for the last two months, Sylla has the potential to be a 20 goal a season striker.

    Niether are Charlie.

    Oh, and arguing? Nah, some people might like to argue, i refer to it as a conversation, usually, type in caps lock if it's an argument, then I'll know your seriously angry.

    Hall has been instrumental in our 5 wins from 7, in many respects he is playing the old Holloway role but supporting the defence even more.

    Derrys style of play was being a tough tackling leader with great awareness which more than made up for his lack of flair and pace, he was a great player for us and as other have said, our most important player after taarabt.

    Heidar is my favourite striker we've had here during my time supporting qpr, loved him before he came here and was over the moon when he did. He was far better than sylla imo, at least for now.
    I do agree that hall is our future though, sure hes been a bit inconsistent this season but hes still easily one of our best players and will be for years to come.
    If i had to do a starting 11 based on then and now itd be:
    Smithies
    Hill connelly hall walker
    Taarabt derry faurlin manning pavel
    Heidar

    Would normally just go 442 for easiness but dont quite think our strikers are in the same league as heidar yet

    I agree and agree with topper about hall, thought he looked the part from his first game there and will only get better!

    I tried to pick what was our our strongest line up we could at the time. The same argument could have been said about Orr (only played 20 odd games) and Ephraim before Routledge came in. Mackie played more of a part then Akos however, I agree!
