Villa 2 – 2 QPR; Qpr are an utter disgrace to the game!

To think when I was a kid, I was in awe of Qpr when they had wonderful players like Stanley Bowles and Gerry Francis etc.
They disgusted me today with the way they timewasted, which is bad enough in itself. Was there a single player of theirs who didn’t go down injured?
Couple that with the way they kicked Grealish off the park in the away game and I don’t think I’ve wanted to beat such a dirty, cheating team as much, in a very long time.
To think they are led by an ex England manager too.
There’s being professional and there’s cheating, to mind.
And Qpr under McClaren are a disgrace.

Mind you, we didn’t exactly help ourselves, did we?
While we dominated the first half, it was far too leisurely for my liking.
We looked ponderous and slow.
We didn’t press enough and lacked energy.

It’s not like you can say it was tiredness either, in my opinion, because as soon as we went 2-1 down, we managed to up the tempo and maintain it.

It might seem harsh, but I think we can say “new manager syndrome” and the honeymoon period are over now for Dean Smith.
Yes, it’s been a punishing schedule. But it’s been the same for all of the clubs and we’ve come out of the Christmas run very poorly for a team aiming at promotion.
Even the overly optimistic me now concedes that the top two is beyond us and we have to look at the play-offs.
I’m not at all happy about that.

Yes, perhaps I’m being unfair.
But footy is a results driven game, simple.
And we’re not beating teams we should be.

I know.
Smith needs time to get his own players in. That’s fair enough.
But he needs to push us on now and restore my confidence, as it’s shot. Again.
Maybe after more reflection, I’ll change my mind.

    wonder how long before the fans turn on the goalie. already seen loads,

    hogan had one decent chance and for a good save would have scored and hes also getting abuse, being too lightweight. we were just second best and swansea were too hot for us to handle. they are switching play isolating bree / or adomah with their best player on the right. but i reckon we can still win this 3 nil

    How many home games without a win will this be?

    Yet another early cup exit – nothing ever really changes at Villa!

    We get nutmeg straight through the middle all the time, I know first was from a corner but it started with a middle ball. Adohah well words fail me ,finishing balls from him are dir.

    I’m beginning to wonder whether this ‘improvement’ under Smith is merely ‘new manager syndrome’?

    Honeymoon period well and truly down the pan. It’s not just today’s result but the performances have been tailing off for some time now.
