There is nothing worse than being caught in public picking your nose. I have never been caught, because there is nothing there. No collusion, no nose picking. I swear. I wouldn't make this up, even if I tried. I tried to make up that I picked my nose, but they told me that I was lying. And I don't lie. I only tell the truth. Big truths. Ocean sized truths. But even if I did pick my nose, which I don't, I would be applauded for it. Everyone would say, he's like us. He picks his nose too. That's why I am issuing an executive order to cease embarrassment on public nose picking and to Make Nose Picking Great Again!

QPR are on a solid unbeaten streak as of late, can Rovers step up and do something?

Back on form. The poll that is. Also, props for arse picking, rare you can get that into any conversation.

First trip up to Ewood this season and will have a couple of QPR friends in the away so don't want to lose the bragging rights for the journey home!

They're unbeaten in October so are in fine form although the wins have been against Reading, Ipswich and Sheff Wed who are all fairly shit at the moment and then Villa adapting to a new manager and system who did dominate the game despite losing.

If we can get the first goal I'd like to think we can give them a difficult afternoon, with the run of 4 games we've got coming up if we can start with a win then it might lead to a good run of form where we can pick up a lot of points hopefully.

Sadly it sounds like we'll be without Raya as he's gone back to Spain for a few days to see his family and a specialist but hopefully he's back ASAP. Good news is that Mulgrew, Lenihan, Nyambe and Rodwell should all be okay as well as Davenport possibly coming into contention.

Lots of injury updates today in the LT and sounds like Lenihan will be out but Mulgrew and Rodwell okay and not sure I see Nyambe starting just yet. Slightly more worrying is that Dack hasn't trained all week with a tight calf but should hopefully be okay to start. Some good news on Raya is that if the swelling around his nose and eyes comes down they're hoping he can wear a mask and possibly be back as soon as Rotherham. The sooner the better as he's a huge miss and Leutwiler is relatively untried and this would only be his 6th game I think.

Team possibly along the lines of:

-------------Leutwiler
Bennet Rodwell Mulgrew Bell
---------Smallwood Evans
Reed---------Dack-----Armstrong
-------------Graham

I guess Nyambe not starting keeps Bennett back there and avoids Mowbray having to make the difficult call of dropping either Smallwood or Evans and having Reed out wide again as currently he's one of our best players. I suspect if he was to keep Reed centrally he may well drop Evans and that might see Palmer, Conway or Rothwell in a wide position.

I like that team, particularly with your 'suspected' change, ie Palmer on the wing and Reid in the centre. As we are at home I'd prefer that slightly more attacking option.
I think there might have been a riot if Smallwood had been dropped -he'll get the biggest cheer tomorrow for certain!

I think with everyone fit currently Mowbray would pair Reed with Smallwood or Evans in the middle and personally I think he'd drop Evans.

Palmer had a very good game at WBA and Rothwell has done nothing but impress when he plays so it is difficult to leave them out but also hard to fit everyone in the team. We've got a lot of options in midfield.

I would also give Palmer the run out against QPR too. He has improved and shows an ability to make things happen without passing the ball.

I think Williams is going to start at left back if Mulgrew and Rodwell are healthy to play. I know Rodwell is acting cover for central defense, but when he delivers a long ball, its not a wasted attempt.

With Graham having a rest from last week, it should be interesting to see how he is. Also, if Brereton comes on as a sub, I would like to see him go up top and not have to play a winger role.

A good test, after a series of good tests.

Graham= we score;
No Graham= probably no score.

I think Graham is underestimated by many fans. There is no one else in the team that can hold up the ball with his back to the goal while the rest of the attack moves forward. Danny oozes class, not always evident by the stats..
