‘Cost us’, ‘I totally blame’ – Plenty of QPR fans pin Birmingham City defeat on one man
QPR lost 2-1 at Birmingham City in the Championship this afternoon.
QPR took the lead shortly before half-time through Charlie Austin, owing to a pinpoint cross form Todd Kane on the right-hand side.
Mark Warburton’s side went into half-time with a 1-0 lead but would conceded two poor second-half goals to eventually lose the game 2-1.
QPR drop down to 17th in the Championship table with the defeat, putting any play-off hopes on hold for now.
It was a performance that’s shunted a lot of growing optimism at QPR and it’s Warburton who’s coming under the spotlight today, for his second-half substitutions.
He made four substitutions in total, taking Charlie Austin off before the hour mark and making a more defensive change with Sam Field coming on for Chris Willock.
See what these QPR fans had to say on Twitter about Warburton’s changes today:
@qpr I totally blame Warbs for this today he has taken off Austin and Willock and put on Dykes what is going on and where is Adomah

Subs looking really sensible now. Clueless yet again. Kane, one good cross, Ball, consistently poor

Three points dropped thanks to Warburton’s ridiculous substitutions. #QPR

That’s what happens when you make subs and your team are significantly weaker as a result Warburton got a lot right lately but completely and utterly wrong today taking Austin off but I’m not allowed to say that though because some people are sensitive 🙄 https://t.co/rZwosQ0dwi
