    So back to BDBL this afternoon with the visit of QPR. A very intriguing match, with the visitors seemingly on the edge of an unlikely push for the play offs. I believe they're on a 5 game unbeaten run, with a draw v Villa and victory over Leeds in that time......

    But anyway...

    Any team news? :)

    Revert back to the side that started v Wigan?

    Or are there starting places for Madine and Dowell?

    Really looking forward to see how Madine slots into the system today. While I'm shocked it was him we've brought in, the difference he brings to the forward line is a positive you would imagine. Would love to see him and Billy score today in our 2-0 victory ;)

    Madine and Dowell on the bench I recon. Dowell on for Duffy at 61 minutes Madine for last 10 minutes to to excercise the doubters lungs. I won't refer to slashers and clappers, hopefully that is language of the past never to be heard again because of a divided fan base.

    I think we'll lose too, hope I'm wrong, but I've said it many times, were just not good after a break unfortunately, even if we've won in the past, we play crap, but every time we play crap under wilder, we lose.

    Be nice if Hendo is well enough to play, and im looking forward to seeing Sharp and Madine up top too.

    COYWARW!!

    I guess Washington now out of the sqyad for the foreseeable? Can’t see us naming 3 strikers on the bench.

    Looking forward to this one .Hopefully the kop will get behind em today .I'm ambivalent towards Madine ,depending on the score i guess he will get 15/20 mins .Be interesting to see what reception he gets. Qpr get the nod for most improved team .I'm going for the usual line up and either 1-0 or 1-1

    Subs = Moore, Cranie, Stearman, Coutts, Dowell, Clarke, Madine

    Starting XI picks itself

    I’m guessing the amount of self-defeating moron-reaction to Madine will be partly determined by the situation he comes into. Feel-good 3-0 up at the time, probably muted both ways. Fiery 1-2 down at the time, possibly raises the number that actively cheer him on. Boring dire 0-0, enters to audible boos.

    Todays Ref is Andy Woolmer.

    He was the Ref for the boringist game of the season at Ipswich 1-1.

    Possibly, but I'm not sure Clarke offers much more than Madine, while Washington is a completely different type of player who gives us a different tactical option. I'd be unsurprised to see Clarke dropped.

    Yes, that’s possibly the toughest decision.
    I think Washington might be the reserve choice for away games where there is more space in behind (as at Brentford).

    An absolute banana situation.

    We could easily lose this one. If we don't perform then Freeman and Eze could easily punish us, they don't need a lot of space.

    If the fans turn up I'm very confident we won't lose. We'll likely win. This is such a key component for us.

    I think it might be a draw though, and (for once) will predict 1-1.

    Hopefully Scummy/Cuddly Gaz can stick his nut on Sharp the end of a cross and get off to a good start. It would help matters.

    Tough game, QPR are in good form and despite the jokes Maclarren is no fool.

    Take a tough tight 2-1 win today.

    On the train up from the big smoke hoping that we perform today as could be a tough match. Hope for a win but think a score draw more likely.

    Has the Washington tactic ever worked?

    Regarding QPR, according to Sky Sports ticker bar, Luongo is away on international duty and Hemed and Rangel are out.

    Stop worrying, we will totally dominate the match today, making QPR look very ordinary. In the past this hasn’t guaranteed a win, but today I’m very confident it will.

    I could be way off base here, but after the Wilder interviews, I have the feeling that the boo boys will be down to a minimum and the Kop might actually cheer him on to the pitch. We all know that a noisy BDTBL has a fantastic atmosphere that lifts the team and intimidates opposition.

    I could be 100% wrong of course.
