QPR: Fans unhappy with ‘dominant’ performance after Cardiff City defeat

Queens Park Rangers suffered their heaviest defeat of the season on Wednesday, going down 3-0 to Cardiff City.

Can Mark Warburton take QPR to the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

It was a disappointing night in South Wales for Mark Warburton’s side, who have now lost back-to-back Championship fixtures after also losing against West Brom at the weekend.

The Rs have now dropped to 11th in the league table, but are still just two points adrift of the play-off places.

QPR actually dominated lots of the stats against Cardiff, despite losing. Indeed, they enjoyed 72% of possession, took four more shots and had a far superior pass completion percentage than their opponents (via WhoScored).

However, the only stat that counts is goals scored, and Rangers fans were quick to point that out in response to a tweet their club put out after the match.

At full time, the official QPR Twitter account posted: “QPR dominate, but are defeated,” which led to a number of negative replies.

Some fans were unhappy at their use of the word ‘dominate’ given that they lost the game 3-0, while others were simply frustrated with the team’s performance.

Here is what some QPR fans had to say following their defeat against Cardiff City…
