Managers Thoughts #2
Im not going to lie the Premier League was a scary place, every where you went you felt like you was being judged it wasnt a great feeling. But once you got past that part the Premier League was a vibrant place, a place where I felt right at home. Pre-Season was a good one and the players were looking ready for the season ahead. During our Pre-Season we didnt lose a game which gave me real hope for the campaign ahead and not to mention our training tour in Germany was fantastic and what a place. I had never visted Germany properly but we where travelling all over Germany for our Pre-Season Tour.
Q.P.R 3-0 Q.P.R U21's (
Eduardo Vargas x2,Adel Taarabt)
Match Thoughts:I felt we played with confidence in this game, we dominated from the off and established a lead. We built like a pressure cooker slowly becoming more attacking throughout the game. Eduardo Vargas gave me something to think about after that performance, could he replace Charlie Austin?
Hoffenheim 1-1 Q.P.R(
Match Thoughts:I was very proud of the team in this game as Heffenheim are a great side and i felt we should of won it as we had a goal dissalowed for offside. We started off slow but built on our mistakes from conceding a goal we pushed on throughout the game and eventually found an equalizer through Adel Taarabt. Overall i think we deserved the drew and maybe abit more, Could Adel Taarabt be our key man?
Bayern II 0-6 Q.P.R (
Bobby Zamora x2,Alejandro Faurlin,Charlie Austin,Leroy Fer,Mauricio Isla)
Match ThoughtsWhat a great result against a good team, okay its not the real bayern but they still had some good players in that team. We played so freely and confidently which allowed us to dominate from the off. A variety of scorers is always good and it was good to see Charlie Austin put in a good performance. Could Charlie Austin claw his way back in?
Neustrelitz 1-6 Q.P.R (Eduardo Vargas x2,Matt Phillips x2,Adel Taarabt,Mauricio Isla)
Match Thoughts:Another 6 goals for us another dominant win i was happy and the players morale was superb, we were looking like a a real force. Okay im not going to lie i had never heard of this team and from what i gathered they were no Bayern Munich but regardless we dwas dominant.Vargas was really trying to push Austin out of his 1st team postion and it was working he is in great form. Is Vargas The Number 1?
Homburg 0-1 Q.P.R (O.G)
Match Thoughts:As our time in Germany came to an end it wasnt on a pleasing note. We only beat Homburg through an own goal and our performance was below par. Id like to forget this one and move on but a wins a win. Is the momentum gone?
Q.P.R 3-1 Arsenal (Leroy Fer x2,Charlie Austin)
After a drab match vs Homburg this was a stunning performance.We outplayed Arsenal and was the dominant team although Arsenal had the most possesion we were the better side. Leroy Fer put ina blinding performance and he has a condfirmed spot in my regular 11. Is Leroy Fer the new Stevie G?
Q.P.R 4-0 Salisbury (
Bobby Zamora x3,Leroy Fer)
Match Thoughts:A nice way to round of our pre-season a comfortable 4-0 win and a lot to think about. Bobby Zamora had given me something to think about after netting a hat-trick but it was against a non-league team. Either way it wa sgoing to be tough to pick an 11 as every player wanted a 1st team spot and showed it durin pre-season. Does Bobby Zamora have the Premier League quality?
Pre-Season Round Up:
So overall a great pre-season and some tough decisions to make with the Burnley game only round the corner there is going to be some tough decsions but what ever squad i put out i believe they can do the job.
