    Well we all see things differently. Thought they were better than us first half and the black lad (Eze I think who resembles the Liverpool forward) was really mobile and liked his game. It made me laugh (and him) when a chorus boomed out ' your only a sh1te Casey Palmer' The was good humour !! I thought Hugill would have caused us problems but it shows what a good game Bakes and kalus had. LJ said bakes was back to his best, and he was. At end we deserved the points. QPR. Mid table. Good manager. We can only get better
  2. Thought QPR streets ahead of us first half, BUT Bentley did not have a shot to save in the first half. Don't think the QPR keeper did either. Picked up and better in the second half. With so many new players you cannot gel in an instant and patience is needed. Only one way for us as far as I can see, great promise
  3. over the course of the season we will have knocks, suspensions and so on. All midfielders will get chances and opportunities to get match time. I was looking forward to seeing him play and when he came on it was and blindingly obvious he will be a serious talent, but as other posters have said, he needs to be coached up to championship speed. Palmer, Brownhill, Nagy, Massengo, Walsh, they will all get serious match time Have i missed anyone
  4. Reckon it might have been Hugill rather than Moore. Either way with Mr Ofobe I think we have done rather well. Fancy him to score a few for us. It will be an interesting watch tomorrow if Hugill plays for them how he fares. I really liked Pisano but cannot see him coming back as an out of contract, and really needs to be left footer more than right, always seem lopsided when put players on wrong side. ELLIASON is so much better on the left, but spends most of his time RHS. Cutting in. Hindsight is such a great thing.
  5. What would that be, a sort of 442 with BO up front with either AW or AS, FD ? Only issue is that LJ likes his one man up front supported by midfield players. LJ seems to like his 4 5 1 AS seemed to have a decent game as well, worthy of a thread in his own right. When QPR fans notice him as a 'stand out' player that says it all. Really hope to see him play Saturday in front of 20K at the gate
  6. I understand a player needs to acclimatise to new surroundings, new team mates, method and patterns of play and all that but great chance him starting Saturday then ? Nice to see perhaps 4 or 5 new players for the first time at the Gate. It looks the same for QPR who will have Hugill up front, potential target of ours earlier . well Massengo will be on bench or a starter, interesting watch. Bench I reckon
  7. Agree. Did not have a clue about stadium name. Early morning. Apologies. back to Massengo. Believed to be a £3M signing with add on perhaps ramping it up to the reported £8 in France ? Wonder why undisclosed here. Perhaps Saturday we will see a midfield with Nagy Brownhill and this lad. He seemed to have a excellent game last night then
  8. Was not aware of that. Thought something to do with owners etc as seen so many other grounds.
  9. Closer to first team ! Where have we come from if we are signing players for a reported 8m (fake news or not) and not ready for first team. Could any City fan have seen the day when we would be in the position to spend that sort of dosh to develop him and get him ready for championship football. A starter for Saturday perhaps ?
  10. After the excellent report from Ole at Loftus Road (forget the other stupid name the stadium now has) thought that Massengo should have a thread in his own right. A near record signing, (still unsure of the fee with denials of it being 8m from BCFC?) he cannot be a punt for the future and must be considered a starter and a name on team sheet most weeks? If you were at the game last night what was your view of him. Once he has settled will he be a first on team sheet if fit along with say Kalas. The report from Ole gave him perhaps a 7. On radio obvious difficult to gauge yet not a lot said about him TBH FROM the excellent summariser Gary Owers. do you see him and Nagy as our midfield future
  11. Well he is so far down the pecking order here cannot see any rhyme or reason to retain him, no matter what we all think about him as a person, or not. 5th choice behind AW,FD,AS, & BO . Will get pretty much zero game time and doubt make match day squad. Good luck to him. Good league 1 player.
  12. Start getting some continuity. His best 11. New team.
  13. Sadly on radio Brizzle when LJ interviewed after match not a peep about TM being out of match day squad all together, thought it was an obvious question . Has LJ offered anything up before the game, he bigged TM up after Leeds game, perhaps a surprise not in match day squad today.
  14. Thoughts on him so far after two games. I ask as a friend of mine (a keen committed life long Brentford fan) told me before it became public that we were after him and he implored us to buy him ! He claimed that he cost the Bees 15 points last season. As always I take stuff like that with a pinch of salt but listening to radio Brizzle today seems there were two moments in second half when he made two howlers in succession that almost dropped us in it and Gary Owers was wondering what he was doing ? I also note he made a few very decent stops. My take on it is that we have a really decent keeper, but prone to the odd 'howler' From those there today what are your thoughts please ?
  15. Well the £8 million Massengo must be a starter. Surely even BCFC would not spend that money and plonk him on the bench .... interesting watch again
