Ooh I hope we win this one. COYW. Dunno why Richardson is in, I would have gone with Kaca even though he wasn't great last week. He does win a lot of corners.

Just not at it at the moment.  No cover defensively, nothing going forward.  Probably had the ball for around 30 seconds total so far.

Richardson keeps the ball more than needed instead of passing forward
Title: Re: QPR v Fulham match thread
Post by: Horse on December 15, 2012, 03:22:22 PM
I really don't see what Rodde brings to the team. He's not fast, can't pass, can't finish - doesn't seem to have any confidence. About the only thing he can do is hit the target with a header when he is 5ft out - and then it's a 50/50 chance.
Title: Re: QPR v Fulham match thread

Well shame Diarra isn't on the bench, because he'd bring a bit of quality to midfield.

Richardson should probably come off for Kaca at half time.

Baird needs to start bloody concentrating, as do the rest.

I'd take 0-0 at the moment

Ugly Ugly half. I thought i was watching a bunch of people being greedy on fifa instead of paid proffesionals. If the quality of play doesnt step up I can see more creative players leaving in the summer. Doom and gloom? Probably. However if the next half is brilliant then the first never happened and i will be blissfully ignorant of it as a typical football supporter :D   The quality was oozing when Norwich visited, now we seem to have gone stale. Without a doubt we are missing a creative spark right now. Berbatov is trying to start it but he cant do it himself. I hate saying we miss certain players because i am behind every man who wears the white, but boy do we miss our creative men that are out right now.

Post by: bill taylors apprentice on December 15, 2012, 03:55:34 PM
This highlights the lack of class in midfield. Regardless of all the huffing and puffing by our midfield we run the risk of coming unstuck in the second half if we carry on this way.
Someone needed who can pick a pass, Karagounis?

I don't understand how professionals can struggle to hit a five or ten yard pass correctly so consistently.

My Sunday side was honestly better at keeping the ball than that shower in the first half.

Here's hoping that we've got away with it this half, and that we step it up some in the next.

Wow. And I thought we played badly at Stoke... Only saving grace is that they're almost as bad, and their finishing extraordinarily abysmal. Would like anyone on the pitch who might possibly be able to deliver a decent pass to Berbatov every now and again.

Edit: 51% of the game has been played in our final 3rd. Against a poor QPR side who are bottom of the table, says it all really.

Edit: Kelly on for Riether. All we need.

Awful Fulham.


Sad to say but yes we have looked worse and played worse and on occassion we have offered those delights at home. It raises the question again though that in games like this a workmanlike 4.4.2 might be a preferable option as Berbatov might as well be playing on Mars so far ahead of the rest as he is. Kaca for Richardson and Petric for Rodders at half time would at least show me Jol is watching the same game.

ATM, I'm not seeing why Richardson consistently gets the start when he is healthy. He must be a tornado at Motspur because I really can't recall a good performance to date. Mind you he hasn't had a run of games to sharpen his skills and get match fitness but he needs to improve

It isn't as much a Jol problem (apart maybe from his blindspot for Richardon) as much as it is a personnel problem.

Considering Diarra is never fit we have the worst CM options in the entire league, there isn't much a manager can do about that if the cheque book doesn't get used. Ironically CM (and maybe ALM) is the only place QPR are strong.

Come off it. It's one game, talk about an overreaction.

Not sure it's an overreaction. Look at the teams below us. Villa look set to get a huge win over Liverpool, and they don't look like a relegation team to me. Southampton is a bit of a mystery, but they've come through a difficult early schedule in decent shape. Sunderland are pretty awful, they certainly could go down. Wigan obviously have a history of finishing the year pretty well. Reading are the only team I look at and think, yeah they're pretty clearly going down.

I think we'll probably be ok, but this is just not a good team. We need some new players desperately.

The Jol out posts are hilarious though. The guy has a central midfield of Chris Baird and Steve Sidwell. You can only do so much with that. I don't get his fondness for Kieran Richardson but besides that he's done pretty well with what's available.

I cant think of a worse performance by a Fulham player in a long time. Baird has been utterly woeful.

We havent looked like scoring, given the ball away too easily and have defended very very badly

This reminds me of our performances against Derby in their relegation season

what a joke.

Jol out.


You sir, are a fool!

Talk about over reacting - not just this foolish statement, but all of you!!!

For a good few weeks now, we have all said that this the one - the Fulhamish one! And yet now it's actually happening it's somehow unbelievable and in this posters mind, Jol's fault?
Its the performance or lack of it. Its one of the worst i have seen in 35 years. Its really is that bloody poor.
I think if Jol fails to get maybe 2 wins in the next 4 games he might have a problem.

Its the sort of game that will have the emotions running high but there are some consistencies from the albeit few brighter times. Who is Rodallega, Richardson - why, and how has the baird/sidwell pairing suddenly gone tits up after earning loads of praise last time out. For me the ans2ers lie on te bench. What was the tactics and game plan on monday night. Newcastle tactically gifted us that one but we had no visible plan and again today, albeit with the benefit of a live feed we look without a plan, without an obvious tactic to play our game and no flexibility to counter what QPR are offering. The second should not have happened on at least four occassions. This aimless performance is down to the  coach not the players but I expect post match we will start with the deep sigh and wide grimmace. This one is down to you Jol and not the league programme or injuries to one player.
For gods sake we will have the 'Arry is the Mesiah' headlines to deal with all week.........................

Not sure we are overreacting to one match but a spell of bad displays is followed by the worst display we have had in the Prem against an awful side. We are eleven strangers today and it is very worrying that a few more displays and we are in the relegation zone.


I repeat we laid the foundation to our struggles in the last transfer window. It would be different if we looked as if we were trying early on but we haven't. A team that looks as if we haven't won all season.

There are a number of average players in our squad who would play well in a good side but we have too many average players in the starting eleven every week.
The likes of hughes and hangerland are exposed by too many poor midfield players, sidwell and Diarra are good team players but shouldn't be running the show together. baird has been exposed to often and regardless of his commitment is not good enough for the premier.
 I would rather see Kasami given a run of games in the centre than continue with baird

we are easy to beat... or certainly stop scoring
play a 4.4.2 and simply hold ur positions... we dont have the creativity to score..
the first 1/4 of the season we were looking class down either wing with Kaka and Duffers with the overlapping of Riise and Reither and that is were our creativity has come from however everytime we start Richardson that doesnt exsist.
i understand starting him against a top 6 side if you want the extra cover for Riise but not so much against QPR

and the obvious lack of ability in the centre of midfield... when they play at 100% Baird and Sidwell do a job but anything less than that they simply arent good enough

Unbelievably bad. Craig1q0 - out of berbatovs ass? Every time he's had the ball he's the only player to do something productive with it. He just hasnt had the ball. Considering our progression under Jol, this is the worst performance I've seen by a side he's put out. Baird and Sidwell utterly dominated by Taraabt. The two of them seemed always to be marking him yet he got away from them every time.

Always felt this was going to be a battle in Midfield today, wrong tactics should have played 4 in midfield with Berba up top to hold the ball, sidwell and Baird were overun today and Tarrabt allowed to wander where he wanted. Karagounis should have started picking up Tarrabt as Rodellaga was never going to be involved playing as a lone striker. Jol got it wrong today, lets hope we get it right against Liverpool.

Jol out means we lose Berb as well. Not a chance we could cope without him right now.

Apart from Taarabt they offered very little themselves. Our worst performance for a very long time made them look better than they really were. The result was always on the cards. Against Newcastle Baird & Sidwell had a one off but today they showed their true capability. Surely Karagounis & or Diaara & Kasami can´t do any worse. We must buy in January some quality creative midfielders.

I don't buy that. He's an impact sub. He's rarely put in a decent full game and exposes the defence. Having said that, Richardson was woeful, and I would have put Kaca on at half time. But the injury to Riether also hurt us, and maybe delayed the intended substitutions.

Because Richardson seems incapable of passing the ball forward. Did you see Berbatov bite his head off at least 3 times for not passing it to him in an advanced position.
Richardson seems to be a left footed player who wants to play it inside all the time and never down the line. Hence Riise thinks sod that whats the point.
I really really do not understand what he brings to the squad let alone starting. Is he really going to push Riise for a place. I have Richardson about 4th in line for the wide left starting position.

Well he certainly couldn't have done much worse than Richardson, but I suspect that he'll disappoint as well if played too early for too long.  I think the real problem is the dependence on Sidwell and Baird. Sidwell was constantly having to retrieve Baird's mistakes. There's no creativity there, and today there was no defensive ability either, Baird being the main culprit.

The pace was too slow and we go backwards to often, this is all the managers fault. i am not calling for his head, far from it but he does need to wake up!
I 100% agree that Kaca should have started, poor call from Jol.
I don't buy that. He's an impact sub. He's rarely put in a decent full game and exposes the defence. Having said that, Richardson was woeful, and I would have put Kaca on at half time. But the injury to Riether also hurt us, and maybe delayed the intended substitutions. Petric for Rodallega made sense - Hill had Rodallega in his pocket all match.  SHame Diarra wasn't on the bench, because I would have pulled Baird and put him on.
Whether or not he should naturally be used as an impact sub is not relevant in this case. The fact of the matter is if it's a choice between Kaca or Richardson, who's come back from injury as well as being in a purple patch, Kaca wins every time.

Worst game I've attended. Enough said.
