    Think they're a team who perhaps play into our hands.

    Can't see them changing their approach. It will be a case of us being strong and defensively resilient with no daft mistakes. If we do that, they will allow us opportunities to win the game.

    Our stats wise - Interesting to see Watson's growing influence also being shown by his key involvement in goals.

    Another "expected to win" game. More high expectations. These kind of games often prove to be a bit of a stumbling block.

    Let's hope lessons have been learned.

    Kick-off returns to the usual 3 o’clock with no Sky Sports coverage to shorten folk’s pre-match drinking sessions.

    Last time out, Forest came up against a West Brom side who seemed more content to kick Forest at every opportunity, a ‘star player’ who went down when any Forest player even looked in his direction and one of the most brazenly corrupt officiating performances ever witnessed in the Championship.

    This is the return fixture to a February clash at the Kiyan Prince, when Forest turned by far their biggest winning margin of the season, a 4-0 victory, which in some ways was rather flattering – as Forest were actually turning in a controlled 1-0 leading margin, after Figueiredo’s early goal, but then QPR suffered some sort of implosion around 80 minutes and let Grabban, Carvalho and Semedo all add to the margin of victory.

    A Bit about our opponents
    QPR were formed in 1886 and contrary to their full name, were actually not a team formed by some Park Rangers, but instead an amalgamation of two older clubs – St Judes and Christchurch Rangers. No record exists of why they chose not to call themselves St Judes Christchurch Rangers (SJCR).

    QPR hold the bizarre distinction of being the team in English Football with the most different home stadia, having tried out 20 different home grounds, before settling at Loftus Road in 1917 – although they also had two different stints at the now demolished White City Stadium, they were unable to muster enough support to actually fill the place.

    QPR play in blue and white hoops, making them one of a handful of clubs to prefer these over the more flattering vertical stripes and giving any of their more out-of-shape players a comically round appearance and literally nowhere for their fans to hide those hideous beer bellies.

    QPR have had a number of incredibly imaginative nicknames over the years – The Hoops, The Superhoops, Rangers and The R’s. None of which are interesting enough for me to even take the piss out of.

    The 1975-76 season saw QPR’s highest ever league finish, when they ended as runners up to Bob Paisley’s Liverpool. They have never won the FA Cup, being losing finalists on just one occasion, losing to Spurs in 1982. They have won a League Cup though, a 3-2 victory over West Brom in 1967, their winning goal coming from Mark Lazarus.

    The current QPR side is undergoing Warburtonisation, a process which was started, but never finished, at Forest, whereby number of passes and percentage of possession take priority over everything else, including goals (see Brentford). Which probably explains why they were Forest’s biggest victory of the season, as Forest only win when their possession percentage is down around the 30% mark.

    Mascot of the week.
    QPR’s mascot is Jude – who recently appears to have morphed from a tiger into a black cat – presumably Sunderland are less sensitive about their identity than Hull.


    A bit about us
    After the odd team selection against Charlton, Sabri went back to the innovative tactic of picking the eleven players who have actually played the best this season for the West Brom game. The club treat releasing details of injuries like some sort of breach of national security these days, so hard to know if anyone did pick up knocks against West Brom, other than those we could clearly see having lumps kicked out of them by Livermore and Bartley.

    Forest have generally picked up better results against teams higher up the table, than those in the bottom half, but even currently sitting in 16th, QPR are the one side whose tactics seem to play into Forest’s hands and it would be sensible to expect something like a repeat result from the previous encounter. However, never rule out Forests ability to ‘Do a Forest’ and find a way to lose this.
    They were quite unfortunate in 1976, having finished the season first, thus allowing Liverpool to know exactly what was required in their final match. I can't remember now (too arsed to google it), they either lost on GD or by a solitary point.
    They also used to have that dreadful artificial pitch in the 80s.
    But I like their jerseys, having once bought one. The Hoops and even Celtic's (yes I bought that too) - very unique. Although my mates told me that I look like a fucking criminal wearing them!

    No easy games in the Championship - have we forgotten Charlton already.
    But still, lets do the double over them.
    I see an edgy contest - 1-0 to Forest.

    That's made me wonder who we've now already played twice and if we've matched, improved or reduced our points from them.

    Hull lost 2-1 then won 2-0. 3 points + 3 goals
    Wigan lost 1-0 then won 2-1. 3 points + 2 goals
    Blackburn drew 2-2 then won 3-2. 2 points + 1 goal
    Reading drew 1-1 then drew 1-1. 0 points + 0 goals
    Luton won 2-1 then won 3-1. 0 points + 1 goal
    Brentford won 1-0 then won 1-0. 0 points + 0 goals
    Birmingham won 3-0 then lost 2-1. -3 points - 4 goal
    Leeds drew 1-1 then won 2-0. 2 points + 2 goals
    Charlton drew 1-1 then lost 1-0. -1 point + -1 goal
    WBA lost 2-1 then drew 2-2. 1 points + 1 goal.

    So we've played 10 teams twice now. We've improved by 7 points and 4 goals on the first half of the season thus far.

    So of the 10, we've only failed to match or improve our result in 2 games. Shows Sabri's prowess in analysing the opposition and best finding a way to play them imo. Let's hope it continues.

    I'm still frustrated by the Charlton game. But we never deserved to win that one anyway. I perhaps have more regret with the Birmingham game. At 1-0 up and a penalty, with some golden chances still after, it really should have been 3 more points.

    Ah well! Let's put QPR to bed. Confidence will flow again. We need to use the frustrations of Keith Stroud's performance to drive us on. Create a siege/them against us mentality.

    They say that those in black are having a good game if you don't notice them, let's hope this stays for the remainder of the season.

    Strongest starting 11 is needed here. Away at QPR we were under the cosh and it was looking like a 1 1.

    Don't forget they had a man sent off and we scored 3 very late on.

    Won 4 2 on sat after going 2 down I think these fuckers

    This will not be easy by any stretch of the imagination.

    Go hard from the off with our main boys for me

    Dont get me wrong Watson and sow are the number 1 pairing, dont think semedo or yates can replace either of them. The suggestion was using there energy to play a high press. May work, may not but either of them replacing sow has not worked so far. Could Yacoub have been an ideal stand in for sow?

    Key question: is Francis Benali (on loan) attending?
    We have a poor win ratio when he attends.

    Still got the Swansea game on a Saturday at 3pm. Fully expecting it to be moved though.

    Personally think anyone with the surname Jones should not be anywhere near refereeing games with Welsh teams involved.

    Please, please, please Sabri start with your strongest team. Then sub as necessary.

    So far this season, playing the 'also rans' has not worked, play the proper team on Saturday. Then give them a rest and just have light training on Monday with a tactical talk. They must be fit and strong by now, just talk tactics.

    Use games as fitness training and let them clear their minds in between matches. The last few games are coming up, stay strong.

    If the Trent keeps rising I wouldn't be surprised if it gets called off.
