Things I'd rather not have to talk about No.87: QPR

A friend of Flavio Briatore's. Probably not invited to St James Park tonight

Should I be depressed? Relieved? Confused? Beating QPR in the Carling Cup was always going to be unlikely, but losing 5-0? At home? There's going out of a competition we were never going to do well in and there's just plain embarrassment.

It's difficult to know how much to read into this. QPR are a division above us and have a very decent side. Do we shrug and move on or is this symptomatic or something a bit more serious.

After the Leeds defeat I said we couldn't come away from any more games saying we'd played well but lost. Tonight confirms this. By the sounds of things the first goal was against the run of play and we'd matched them up until then.

What's equally worrying is Norwich beat Yeovil 4-0 away tonight. Suddenly three points on Saturday looks much less likely. It'll probably be 0-0 now considering the amount of goals scored and conceded.

Also, Goldbourne got himself sent off for a handball on the line. Can't say if that was harsh or not but it deprives us of our only out-and-out left back, and we're down by two players next week after Corr's rabbit punch at Elland Road.

Two-nil would have been about what I'd have expected tonight. But, no matter how difficult it is to raise enthusiasm for this game beforehand, 5-0 still hurts. Hopefully Exeter have got a bad result out of their system now.

Flavio will probably sack Jim Magilton tomorrow for not scoring six though.
