    Problem is look at the last year. What Ollie is doing clearly doesn't work.

    We don't have wingbacks so he plays a system with people playing out of position. We have wingers but don't play in a system that allows for wingers. Both Pawel and others such as Yeni have gone backwards. None of the three man midfield are goal scorers regardless of other qualities. The system does not work for any of our strikers.

    We are left with a disjointed side with no goal threat. Granted our strikers aren't great but with what we have should be 4-4-2, lump in crosses for likes of Sylla and Smith and possibly Washington or Wheeler alongside or just behind one of those. The constant twin 'threat' of Washington and Mackie with very little service is ridiculous.

    I just get the impression that Ollie is very much yesterday's man and is way out of his depth. You can point to previous promotions but could just as easily say get George Graham out of retirement as he won the league etc. Happens to majority of managers. He should have stayed as a pundit. Nobody has yet been able to answer who else in the top two divisions would have given him a job. I strongly suspect the answer is nobody. Totally daft appointment.

    I think that's exactly what he thinks. He could be correct. However i think between Pav, Freeman and Luongo, supported by Scowen, supplying Smith and Sylla, there's enough there to scare defences and not be found out too quickly.

    FFs furtive how many times do you have to come out with the same thing about wingbacks, it cracks me up how you are so damn sure we`d be better off weakening our midfield having 4 in it, we`d most likely get hammered in the middle of the park as thats quite obvious, seems as most away teams play with 5 in midfield, we`d get dominated and then imagine how youd be moaning then!

    we have won one away game in ten months ... that suggests it might be worth trying something different. Or maybe Dollie is lulling the rest of the division into a false sense of security before speeding up the league in the second half of the season?

    I know sometimes it's like being on an opposition board. Terrible it is.

    We already get dominated. And have won only three games out of the last sixteen.......

    Don't let those facts get in the way of the thinking of one or two on here.
    'The win at Birmingham will hopefully turn things around' is what Hollowhead is hoping for, but unfortunately QPR won't be playing Birmingham away every other weekend.

    His tactics and team selections are not working hence QPR being in such a low position with just 25 points.

    But this thread is about whether Washington should be dropped and the answers a resounding yes, because that miss in the 1st half on Saturday was just woeful regardless of what system is played and was typical of his finishing ability.
    He is a League 1 striker at best. Shame on Ferdinand and JFH for spending much of the 4M fee received for Austin.
