Pretty much a must win for Ramsey. He is coming under a lot of pressure since the January window shut. Having a team including Austin, Fer, Sandro, Phillips and Green should be challenging near the top, not floating around in mid table. Yet at the start of the year, most fans would have accepted that as it is a re building season - but we thought we would be without the above 'stars'.

I think he is making a rod for his own back by playing Henry. Against Birmingham, fans were chanting 'you don't know what you are doing' when he kept Henry on, yet took off JET, Sandro and Fer. Most managers have love ins with players where they are blind to their faults, and Henry is one.

Hopefully, he drops Henry, and goes two up top for this game. We are far too defensive. We dominate the possession at home, but playing two holding midfielders and one up top has made us a bit blunt (bizarre as we score goals, we just don't look like scoring goals).

My team for the game would be:

Smithies (drop Green, he hasnt been great this year)
Onouha Hall Angella Yun (if fit, the club havent told us what is happening)
Sandro
Chery Fer Luongo
JET Polter

If not Polter, I would change it to be

Phillips (been rubbish recently, so needs dropping) Luongo Chery
Fer
JET

For what it's worth he was undroppable for Wolves under McCarthy. We used to call him the crab as he only ever played the ball sideways and backwards, even when we were 5-0 down in games. Can be a very frustrating player to watch at times, but he can be very effective at what he needs to do (breaking up play, etc).

The thing is, he doesnt break up play. He runs all over the place without actually just sitting. Sometimes he is further forward than our offensive players - which is rubbish as he cant pass forwards, as you say.

Two years ago he was good, but he has declined an awful lot, yet does not get dropped. Maybe it is for his height for defending set plays, but that is me clutching at straws.

Henry is strange, he was one of our best players last season. Yet this year, at a lower level, he's been utter shit.

Minimum 2 conceded. Everything else is a mystery with us.

I'll take a stab at 2-2.

0-0, and the scoreline tells the whole story.

We are playing with such a lack of confidence, but we kept a clean sheet. I think QPR fans are our own downfall. I had people behind me groaning that we are passing it on the desk and shouting "get it forward" so we pump it long and they groan! Then people shouted at Toszer for one misplaced pass and saying "we dont play the Watford way". I dont even know what that means?! Yet Toszer set up our best chance with a sweet volley to Chery who nearly scored.

Then chanting at Ramsey again when Fer comes on for JET, who was dead on his feet. Then boo's at full time. It wasnt a great game, but we didnt get turned over and Green barely made a save, so I thought boo's were wrong.
