    Re: Qpr message board

    "Horrible horrible club. We all worship Sir Neil and he shouldn't be at such a club."

    "Hey Gareth, you are probably one of the few decent Cardiff fans most of us have come across."

    "Cardiff are so bad, a draw would feel like a loss."

    "I’m actually really p.issed off because Cardiff are W.ank"

    Its good to be back

    I'll never tire of opposing fans looking at their possession stats against us; then look at our goals scored stats against them; scratch their heads in confusion as they struggle to understand that possession does not equal goals does not equal points.

    "Weird game. Supposedly Cardiff are amongst the promotion favourites. Play like that and we would beat them 7 times out of 10- if of course you ignore the shambolic first two goals"

    Unfortunately for this poster, in football goals are rather important

    Itís like the bloke who buys a girl her drinks all night, dances with her all night but she goes home with the bloke she fancies. You can do your best, flatter her etc but the best fella will win, QPR flattered to deceive.

    3 goals to nil. 7 games unbeaten. Certain players improving game by game. Bamba to come back after the international break. Things aren't perfect but I'm content where we are after 10 games and confident that we will only get better with the know-how we have.

    Better that than being a QPR fan having to travel home after seeing a team with 78% possession lose 3-0.

    I actually thought they were pretty good, and we were lucky. They passed it well, but with purpose.
    Mistake playing Hughill who was snuffed our by our twin lighthouses, but they gave us the run around until it got to him.
    Theyíve got a couple of very good players there. Defensively they were shite though, we could have scored a couple more and dominated the ball in the air.

    We were also odds on to win that brawl at the end 😂

    If both sides had taken the chances presented then it would have finished 4-4. From about 70 minutes onwards I was extremely confident that City would win because QPR's finishing gave the impression that they didn't want any points.

    In fairness, there was some really good last-ditch defending from City.

    There’s more than one way to skin a cat Tim, and we skinned them. It’s annoying me a bit now, the criticism we’re getting over possession percentages etc, a 3-0 win against a team who were one of the early front runners in the division will do me. Analysts & pundits in the past used to drool over sides who soaked up pressure yet clinically took their few chances to put a game to bed, I’d rather be a City fan tonight than a fan of the wonderful passing yet toothless outfit QPR were tonight.

    Even with 2 minutes to go QPR were passing the ball around their 18 yard box 3 or 4 times before playing it out. Someone near me shouted "That'll push your possession stats up Warburton"

    It’s getting obscene, maybe the players think it makes them look like Barcelona if they pass it about? Neil must love it, I can almost here him saying let them get on with it, wait until they try and come through us......do they break down the possession stats into sections of the pitch?

    Totally agree,they posed little direct shot on goals ,you could argue the hitting of the posts were shots just going wide ,they did hve possession but not what I call damaging possession.

    And we will win a fist fight against anyone.

    Re: Qpr message board

    Canít be many instances where the opposing teamís MB donít have too many complaints yet ours has people falling over themselves to praise a mediocre QPR performance. Funny old game.

    They were very poor & clueless. Very similar to Luton. Sideways, sideways, back, sideways, back. 78% possession. 60% in their own half, 18% in the attacking half. Move on!

    Positive that Smithies saved the 2nd one that hit the post (My boy thinks I'm imagining things though). Other than that I agree with everything else.

    I hate all this possession talk crap. The aim of the game is to win, to win you need to score goals (more than your opponent obviously), to score goals you need to have attempts at goal. We do that. We were up the top end of the shots at goal stats a couple of games ago by playing direct football.

    Would people be direct and more shots on goal or 70% possession (50% in your own half) and less shots at goal. We haven't been critical in terms of scoring from a lot of shots, so our 'goals for' would be less than we have now.

    Saying that I would like to see Flint/Morrison bring a ball down once in a while, they persist to head or lump forward any ball in the air, whether being pressured or not.

    I disagree that they were very poor. They passed well, had good movement and opened us up far too easily at times. They hit the post twice and I liked the look of their number 10 (Eze). They just weren't streetwise enough.

    I agree with that.

    They got behind us more often then not down the wing with their play. If it wasn't on they'd come back inside and start again. They found so much space in middle and whilst not always a direct threat once you start turning teams like that it'll open up more often than not. On another day it could have been us losing 3-0 or we could have had one or two more.

    Agreed about their no 10. But you can pass and twist and turn to your hearts content...no end product. Cheerio QPR fans. A good 3 points.

    Re: Qpr message board

    I'm already fed up with teams passing the ball around in their own box from a goal kick. I know the rule has only just changed but all these clubs have started doing it. Pass the ball around about seven times until one of them gets cornered then back to the 'keeper who lumps it up field. 7-0 on possession but absolutely worthless.

    I'm not sticking up for it but i think that you're being very simplistic. I think that we need to remember that this style of play is very new in this country and even newer at champioship level so i think that it's fair to say that it isn't quite working for alot of the teams that are attempting to implement this style just yet. I don't think it's difficult to see that it's not just about possession but attempting to draw the opposition out at the earliest opportunity, if it doesn't work then start again and so on....It's going to take a few years before players are comfortable with it and where the quality is there. I'd say that since this brand of football came in, the UK is starting to produce young players who can and will compete at world level. Remember 10-15 years ago when England and Wales were nowhere near it? It does look boring and for the sake of it, but when it does come off and players become more comfortable with it then i reckon that we will witness some wonderful football.

    Better sides know they can't just be one thing all the time.

    You know me Steve, Iím quite happy with how we play and laugh normally when opposition managers go on about how they deserved to win because of their possession.

    However last night I did actually think we got lucky and were generally 2nd best. So this time ( unlike Luton, Fulham Boro and Huddersfield who flattered to deceive) I can sympathise a bit with their frustration at not getting something from the game .. not for long though 😂

    Defensively though we were excellent and they were poor, itís not just about what you do with the ball, but also what you do without it.
