Opposition View: QPR

SIMON Davey will be hoping to start the season in the best possible way with victory on the road against possibly the richest club in the Football League, but what do their fans think of our chances?

The pre-season friendlies couldn't have gone worse for the Tykes with a string of embarrassing results and only one clean sheet to our name, but the arrival of Maceo Rigters on a season long loan from Blackburn may well give the team a much needed killer instinct up front and helps us get a few points on the board starting today.

TarnTalk.com talks to Andrew Wardle, from R's fan site www.QPR.co.nz, to find out the opposition view ahead of today’s season opener against QPR.


Are you confident of victory against the Reds?
I was, then I just visited your site and read about your new imported players. Hmmmm

What sort of game do you expect?
A tighter game than most think, probably a 1-1 draw as both sides get rid of the cobwebs.

Which of our players are you most worried about facing?
Your foreign signings concern me. Unknown quantities.

Who should we be worried about from your team?
Parejo !! Be very afraid.

What line-up are you expecting Ian Dowie will field? And what line-up would you prefer to see?
Dowie? 4-4-2 defensive but very quick counter attacks. I'd prefer a 4-2-4 with two wingers annoying the crap out of the Barnsley defence.

Do you expect to finish the season above or below us? Where do you think both teams will be placed at the end of the season?
Dowie? 4-4-2 defensive but very quick counter attacks. I'd prefer a 4-2-4 with two wingers annoying the crap out of the Barnsley defence.

What do you think of Barnsley manager Simon Davey?
A solid coach, He'll do well with what he has at his disposal. A quiet achiever??

Anything else to add?
Good luck for the coming season and remember, fans irrespective of their club affiliations can get on with each other - except Chelsea because they're just glory hunting prats!!
