Getting more and more confident

********************************************

ATTENTION!

The blog is paused because I has left for Euro 2012 in Poland. 

I will return and continue blogging in 2 weeks.

Season 7 with the new tactics and the new squad after the great transfer campaign continues. I am ready to claim Q.P.R. has started to show more confident performance in October and November. The period featured high effectiveness of our attack: we started to score more goals than in September and August.

12 matches: 10 wins, 2 losses

Q.P.R. is among title contenders after 12 fixtures. This is the start I really like! Pay attention that Arsenal is having a great run now. But I don’t think they are unattainable.

The worst match

QPR - Burnley

Loosing 0:1 to one of league outsiders at home is always a pain. It’s so difficult to understand the reasons of the loss… Somehow we couldn’t create a single clear cut chance, though managed to fail several decent goal chances. Possession and corners gave nothing in this game.

Each of my leading strikers made a double. And Daniel Bazan has even managed to miss his 2nd penalty! Exciting victory with complete advantage over one of serious Premier League opponents.

Q.P.R. and Everton were equal by head-to-head results till this moment. Moreover, we have never one in 3 or more goals like this time!

Head-to-head

 

Pay attention I made two another match reports on my FM Crowd blog:

- Daniel Bazan and his first hat-trick for QPR (5:1 win over Bristol City)

- My first Premier League loss in season 7 (2:3 loss to Tottenham)

 

Europa League

Simply perfect results. Easy group as for me.

The qualification is already guaranteed and it means I will give a chance for QPR backup players in two last EL group matches.

Feeling happy with my players! They have good average ratings, so many guys are above 7.00. I feel they like Fluidity tactics :-)

Newcomer Seamus Coleman has 6.91, but I do like his performance. The Irishman is a very confident defensive winger who can tackle and cross the ball excellently.

The best player of the reported period is again Carlos Fierro.  14 goals in 14 games - what I should say more! But this time I would like to single out John Fleck who had an inspiring form during the last matches.

Now I see John performs better as a central playmaker than a left winger.

 

Future matches

So as you see I am in very good mood now. The squad is still in the blending process getting more and more confident. In January-February players should show their best football as a team with a high level of communication and cooperation. It’s really important for me because there will be a “Wonderful Christmas time” for The Rangers:

30.12 - Arsenal

01.01 - Manchester United

10.01 - Chelsea

17.01 - Manchester City

24.01 - Liverpool

I am sure these matches will decided our destiny in the Premier League season. Hope to remain a title contender after all…

 

Excited to blog for you,
