Premier League Sunday, Gameweek Six: Open Thread

loftus road Premier League Sunday, Gameweek Six: Open Thread

Today presents us with a unique opportunity to look at two clubs who often have been overlooked so far this season: Queens Park Rangers against Aston Villa (11am ET/4pm BST). I say overlooked because they often play at the same time as other matches, and it’s often difficult to give all teams our 100% concentration. Today is that day when we can look at the progress that both clubs have made (or not) without interruption.

Queens Park Rangers is a side that many, myself included, picked to be relegated this season. But that was before they had an ownership change in late August and signed up several key players such as Joey Barton, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Armand Traore.

While QPR is on the ascendency after a convincing 3-0 away victory against Wolves, which was preceded by a nil-nil draw against Newcastle in a game that they could and should have won. For Aston Villa, meanwhile, the team seems to be headed in the opposite direction after a string of unsatisfactory results including a loss against Bolton, and draws with Newcastle, Wolves and Everton.

Feel free to share your thoughts, observations, rants and raves about today’s match — in the comments section below.
