Strangely confident about this. We tried to play football against PNE and looked good, but always going to be hard against a team with no ambition to get a win, or even an attack.

Should be quite an open game, but hopefully we sneak a 1-0 win.

.

Absolute bollocks.

You had 8 shots to our 6. 1 on target to our 2. 5 corners to our 4. 57% possession to our 43%.

You tried to play football, but weren't very good at it. Simple as that.

You had a header cleared off the line, and that was your only shot of note. You didnt have a single spell of constant pressure. So no, it is not absolute bollocks.

Plus, I didnt actually say we deserved to win. You defended very well, but then you had 11 men behind the ball and it is clear to see why you have kept 6 clean sheets in a row.

We played football, and it looked good at times. So playing against a team that will attack us, I think we will do okay as we have the players to cause damage.

Poor QPR, having a owner who has thrown millions at his club bypassing every FFP law possible can't break down little old Preston? Maybe waste another 40 or 50 million on your team, that might change it!

Saying "playing against a team with no ambition for the win, or even an attack" is complete and utter horse-shit, no matter how you try and justify it.

You've even admitted yourself that we had one cleared off the line. Which, incidentally, is closer than you lot ever came.

You're coming accross as ridiculously bitter that your team of highly paid flops, failed to break down a well organised defence, sorry.

Sorry for taking the thread somewhat off-topic but, sometimes people need pulling up on their bullshit.

What does having an owner that has been shit have to do with us playing well against PNE? Talk about an irrelevant post. Btw, we havent bypassed anything as the case is on going.

Bitter about what?! All I have said is that you were happy to sit behind the ball and show no ambition other than one header from a corner. Nothing bitter about it, you lot did not show ambition and your angry replies do not change the fact that you were happy to get a draw. You didn't attack, so you kept it tight so that we couldnt attack - fair enough, I have no problem with that and I have not stated anything different to that. If you read back to my initial post I am saying that as we are playing against a boro team that will be looking for the win, we will have more chance to get in behind as there wont be 11 players behind the ball the whole game.

Just by swearing to prove your point, doesn't make you right.

Btw, I have to ask, did you even go? This is the summary from a PNE fan that went:

We should be kicked out of the league.

Killed the game for 80 minutes, tried to attack for 5 then killed it again. QPR looked a good passing side in the opening stages but we soon dragged them down to our level. For the amount of money their players are earning, they didn't have a clue to break us down.

Dire.

But yeah, I will stick to my bullshit.

We attacked for about 5 minutes towards the end of the game, 10 if you're being generous and the annoying thing is we actually looked like scoring when we did, before sitting back again in injury time. Other than that our 'attacks' were aimless punts to an isolated Garner or down the channel to Doyle which failed miserably.

If a team came to our place and did what we did then i'd criticise them too, although considering the gulf between the two sides in terms of budget i can understand why we went for a draw. I thought we'd get bummed.

You stated, and I quote "We tried to play football against PNE and looked good, but always going to be hard against a team with no ambition to get a win, or even an attack." - Which, whatever way you dress it up (As I've already said) is complete nonsense.

Fair enough, we may have been overly caution when going forward, but you literally said we had no ambition to win the game, or even "An attack".....There's no way that Grayson sent them out there solely to defend. By the very definition of your post, that is what you're saying.

Just admit you were being an overdramatic diva...

Okay, maybe saying "an attack" was worded poorly. But my point still stands, you had men behind the ball and didnt really attack us. You came for a point, and you got it. I have never once said I had a problem with that or complained about that - my point was, and still is, we played well even if we didnt win or score.

Ironically we set up the same was against boro and nearly got a 0-0. Any boro fans on here that went?
