Rubbish, but up to 4th: City 0-0 QPR

Just got back from Ninian Park after watching an appalling performance by City, in a 0-0 draw with QPR. How we managed to draw is a mystery. Apart from the first 10 minutes we were truly awful. QPR grew in confidence as the match went on, and the last 30 minutes it was all backs to the wall stuff. City had about 1 shot on target the whole game.

With Bothroyd injured, our front line of Chopra & McCormack, together with Burke on the wing, gave our attacking line up an average height of about 2ft 6in, against some pretty big defenders. But still all we did was hoof the ball up field.

We couldn't string two passes together, and Dimi Konsta-dropalot who gifted Wolves an equaliser on Sunday didn't look at all at home in the City goal.

So, one of our games in hand gone. At least we didn't lose, but how we managed to climb two places to fourth spot is quite frankly amazing. QPR must be gutted they didn't win this one.

The only bright spot, though it did get boring after about 89 minutes, was the constant and vociferous heckling of ex-City loanee Wayne Routledge, who turned his nose up at City earlier this season and walked out (literally by all accounts) to go to money sodden QPR. "What a waste of money" and "You greedy *%*$%^*" were a couple of the more polite offerings, and he was roundly cheered everytime he lost the ball or was tackled.

Oh, and by the way, the ref was a completse waste of space too.

Up the City. Can't be arsed to put an excalamtion mark after it tonight.
