    Default We have our qpr back.

    Plenty of fight, grit and determination. A lot more enjoyable to watch players that care.

    Think we will finish highest of 10th lowest of 18th. We have 3 center midfielders that have quality. Smithies also in goal. Pavel is a good wing back but not on the other 4 players level.

    Mackie, Washington , Bidwell , Ned , baptiste. All work their heart out but it's all graft and limited quality.

    Said it for a while. Washington isn't up to being a regular scorer in this league and mackie hasn't been for years. Im not moaning though as I'm really happy with where we are compared to the last 2 seasons. We will throw up a entertaining season but will be a mid to lower table team because of our striking quality

    Strikers hitting the back of the net could be difference between average season and very good one

    I personally don't think effort has ever really been a problem except in the side that went down under Hughes/redknapp but even then (and nedum said same in an interview), when you're losing loads (as we did in prem) the easy answer is a lack of effort when really we weren't good enough.

    Also I never really understand this @our qpr back" stuff. You and others and Ollie seem to think that means "running around a lot". To me, it's playing football on the deck with a maverick in the side.

    And a bit of creativity and style.

    And a proper defence who can actually keep a clean sheet.

    I'd say that's probably more important. Our top 2 Scorers so far are strikers, though I'd say they both do have to score more. But a defence that doesn't concede too many sloppy goals like Millwall's second last night is imo more important.

    I'd like us to go Smith & Sylla up top and see how it goes Washington works hard but his goalscoring is questionable at best, Mackie is Mackie very limited and can run

    It is funny... I always think having QPR back is a family club with a good atmosphere which buys cheap and accepts our better players will be picked off by bigger clubs. (Anyway).
    Based on what Ollie had to work with I tip my hat to him(well if I had a hat). Also the club isn't buying cheap it is buying clever ! If we compare to some big spenders in the league we have made some very very good signings.

    The one scary piece is, how will we score them goals ! Last night should of been 3 points and lets accept luck was against us. However we need someone banging in goals each week. I am not sure we have a striker who do

    es that(not saying the ones we got are not good enough). If we could loan a "Austin" type player I would say we would be top 6 material.

    And honest players we like and can relate to.

    We have a midfield and some width.

    I think the defence is actually sortable enough to secure a mid spot come the end of term. I sometimes wonder about the quality of defensive coaching at the club, that might be where Clint could be an asset.

    It's as a strike force we're really lacking. Jamie & CW aren't really strikers at all at this level and make no sense as a front two. There is a way you could play both but not without major tactical reconstruction which we don't need.

    Totally agree. Didnt we have "our rangers back" during the playoff campaign under HR? Team was full of young, hungry English players on low(ish) wages
