Without a doubt there is a feel-good factor among players and supporters of Blues. Results against Swansea and Forest have reignited the belief that a top-six aim is more than achievable.
QPR who are next opponents, play decent football, mainly down to Steve McLaren and his style of play which involves keeping the ball on the deck. This is where I feel Blues can more than match them, provided we start off with the right formation as regards attacking play.
Loftus Road is a tight little ground which gives the likes of Vassell and Jota a great stage in order to show pace and skill. Couple that with Maghoma and Adams and you get a lethal mix for the opposition. Sadly that doesn’t lend a starting place for the Juke for this particular match.
Obviously, all this depends on whether Garry Monk feels Vassell is ready to start from the off. Forgetting the upcoming EFL stuff, we supporters haven’t felt this positive about our squad and it’s capabilities of reaching better things since lifting the Carling Cup, can we? As earlier stated, we are in a good factor mode and long may it continue.
Whilst on this, we at Blues do have a good connection and rapour with two ex-players namely Mark Yates and Colin Gordon. Both played as strikers for Blues. Colin who is now Chairman of Kidderminster Harriers and Mark who has been named manager this week. Kidderminster Harriers have always been a club Bluenoses have been fond of and many going to Aggborough over the years to support them. They are a proper footballing club with a friendly reputation and a history of playing attractive football. I wish both Mark and Colin every success this season in their quest for promotion. Wonderful if both our clubs could party with elevated success at the end of May.
