OK so I've moved on now to Friday and this is probably not the right thread for this but.......not been QPR for a few years, where will Villa fans be drinking near the ground - not central london as driving down M40 then tube to White City.

Went last time and drank in pub near shepherds bush tube. Come out of station and turn right. Can't remember the name but it was full of villa.

Huttonís position for the second was criminal.

Tuanzebe went walkabout too. No idea where but he should have been where Chester eventually ended up.

Chester takes the majority of the blame though, he got himself in a good position at the front post and inexplicably missed the ball. Fluke from Rhodes to be honest.

For the first, Hutton takes majority of blame I'd argue over Nyland, 60/40 maybe. Header was probably going in even if Nyland stayed on line. Huttons positioning was dreadful.

It's amazing, four of our back five took a share of the blame for both goals last night and the odd man out is the dreadful Neil Taylor.
Even if Hutton wasn't in his way would Nyland have been strong enough to win a straightforward challenge with Rhodes? I seriously doubt it. He did an identical thing at Ipswich. He lacks the physical presence for the championship imo.

You are right about Nyland TE.  Like somebody on here once said about Ivanhoe.  Body of a heavyweight champion, heart of a peanut.

Agreed, reminds me of Gollini. Same flaws.

Nyland looks like Guzan did from May 2015. Mentally shot, misjudging crosses all the time and lets in plenty of saveable shots.

Clear downgrade on last season.

I think in Gollini, Bunn, Moreira and Nyland if you took the very best of their individual abilities and made one goalkeeper with them it would make Kevin Poole.  To pick up one deeply flawed new goalkeeper is incompetent to pick up four in a row is like winning Dickhead of The Year.

Iím still of the view Nyland could be decent, and Iíve got no idea about Moreira.

Not only did Bruce leave an unbalanced squad he left players that are no where near match fitness because of lack of activity and or conditioning.
Yep.  Norwich were definitely quicker to the ball in the last 20mins.

Best looking Keeper.
Though I believe David James was at Villa

And he's certainly no Brad Friedel ability wise!

Both good looking keepers of the David James variety !

Shame he's not as quick off his line as Jame-o was!
