Also ignoring the obvious fact that the game is on TELEVISION. Hardly going to be a priority for casual away supporters, especially at a ground where points are rare to come by.

Yup, QPR have slowly attracted a more bandwagon set of fans since the promotion and prior Championship success, and not many of them will pay between 39-51 to most likely see their team thumped especially when its on TV. I'd usually say the fact its on TV shouldn't matter but in this day and age with prices only getting more expensive per season I can't blame fans who now pick and choose their games in order to save money for more important parts of everyday life.

Joe Hart will never be a world class keeper, just thought I'd put that out there. Can't kick, doesn't control his area and makes too many mistakes. Just another British media wankfest, although he's probably world class in the same way that Pepe Reina is...

-----Hazard-----Mata-----Bertrand
--------------Sturridge----------

The foundations are based on the general concern of how slow we are tracking back, hence the inclusion of the defensive Bertrand over the Goat Ramires. I hate leaving the man out of the team but if this is the system RDM wants to use then he does not fit into it.

Many people will disagree with the midfield 2 of Mikel & Meireles but that gives the most aggression and strength in the middle, apart from the Newcastle game (where these two played together) we have proven too weak in that area, plus, Meireles runs alot, which will make up for Mikels lack of mobility.

The choice of Hazard / Mata is no surprise and as Mata needs breaks Lampard or preferrably Oscar can play. This also allows for Victor Moses or Ramires to play over Bertrand agains't the weaker teams in the league and cup.

Obviously, the choice of sturridge is his sheer pace and Torres' being downright terrible for almost two seasons.

Id love to get your review and what you might think of this? Chelsea fans? other fans?
Very good IMO, although I disagree with a few of your selections.

Like you said, you based your team on how slow we're tracking back but I don't think that justifies the inclusion of Bertrand over Ramires. If you take a very good look at our games in which Bertrand has started in a more advanced role you'll notice that he has contributed little to nothing in attack, tracks back well though without question so I'd play Ramires or probably Oscar over him. Right now Ramires seems sloppy compared to how agile and sharp he was last season so maybe Oscar would be my pick. I'd also like to see Romeu handed a chance. He should be thrust into Lampard's current position. It would fit in perfectly with your strategy and ours as a whole. Romeu is very good passer of the ball, he's so calm on it and distributes it nicely. His only flaws being his defensive capabilities which is where Mikel comes in. IMO if we had a better DMF than Mikel, then we could use Romeu to his best of abilities alongside him. Lampard just doesn't fit in that role sadly as much as I'd like to see him play. I'm not a big fan of Mereiles. He's a just a squad player for me. Sturridge over Torres in attack? I nearly loled, but you're right, he has more pace, but he's also unproven. I'll put Torres in there anyday ahead of Sturridge despite his on and off form unless Sturrige proves himself in the center. In defence, Cahill over Luiz for sure. I've been one who doesn't want to criticize Luiz but I'm now fed up with his shtick. He's way too inconsistent to start ahead of Cahill. I'd go as far to say we really really need to sign a world class CB seeing how both of them were in a dire state last night in the absence of . Think that's about it. Mata needs to stop being shitty with his passes too.

My team..

Cech
Ivanovic .. Cahill... Terry... Cole

Mikel .. Lampard/Romeu


Ramires/Oscar.. Mata... Hazard

Torres

Falcao would definitely score 6 against the shitty City defence
