Yet again Sky decide to show this fixture and most of the time the game turns out to be crap and end in a draw.

Sounds like McShane is a doubt so our defence will probably be even more of a shambles than usual. Out of all of our defenders he has been the most consistent although even his form has dipped the last month. I would start with Cooper and Ferdinand. Our goalkeeper will make a mistake and gift them a goal at some point during the game.

The pressure is mounting on Clarke. Lose tomorrow night and Clarke won't be in a job for much longer.

2-1 QPR unfortunately is all I see. We already have no balance and no backbone, will be even worse without McShane.

The only plus side is at least the M4 is not closing until 11pm tomorrow night so will be back home in good time.

We always lose to these.

Whereas I think we always lose to you.

Quietly confident about this game though. Clarke seems to be struggling since flirting with Fulham and we look happy again under Warnock.

More often than not the fixture at the Mad Stad normally end up at draw. The 0-0 when Gareth Ainsworth was in temporary charge of QPR was a shocking game as was the return fixture later in the season.

We will line up 451 I would have thought.

Green
Perch Onouha Hall Konchesky
Sandro Faurlin
Phillips Hoilett Yun
Austin

He may move Hoilett left, and drop Yun for Fer. If Austin isnt fit enough, then he will either do a straight swap for Fer, or move Phillips up top with Petrasso on the wing.


Having said that, everyone of my team predictions has been no where near what was selected.

I remember the 4-1 drubbing under Rodgers at Loftus Road.

What a depressing night that was. Some QPR player got a second booking for taking a free kick too quickly and when they did eventually take it they scored. Ingimarson got sent off 16 seconds into the second half. After the game waiting at the bus stop for the 220 back to Wandsworth where i used to live only to notice after standing there for 45 minutes that the bus didn't stop at that particular bus stop for 90 minutes after a match so had to get the tube home. Thankfully i got free tube/bus travel back then.

Standing at the bus stop was probably the highlight of the evening? Can't have been worse than the game..

It was a cracking Bus Stop to be fair and it was better than seeing Darren O'Dea in a Reading shirt.

So who do we want? Pearson?

Things must be bad if you have changed your picture. I'm more convinced than ever that Clarke does not have a clue. He can't work out who plays where. What a great bit of business it was bringing in Al-Habsi. Utterly hopeless keeper and every single game he makes at least one error. Yet somehow he was the supporters November player of the month which shows how shit we have been. Should play Bond up at Preston. Not sure how many more games Clarke has left. Lose at Preston and Hull and that might be him sacked.

I think Preston will be win or get sacked tbh, and on current form we have no chance.

I'm now fully Clarke out.. dreadful. Can't really not be when I wanted Adkins out who has a far superior record than Clarke and wasn't given nearly as much backing by the owners.

Since the Fulham debacle we've been outplayed by Bolton but somehow got a win, outplayed by Forest and now not even shown up at home to QPR. No shots on target against a fairly average Championship team is poor by any standards, even if you were bottom 10 points adrift you wouldn't be happy with that.

Also got to say after wondering how we "only" got £4m for Hector in the Summer, i'm certainly glad we did... We would barely get a fraction of that amount now. Sooner we can get back to Ferdinand and McShane the better.

What a dull game. Second half was better from a QPR PoV but still not great. Looked pretty tight at the back on the plus side.

Annoyed at how quiet our fans were though, though there was some good banter at times.
