Blackstock has gone on record as preferring to play in a 4-4-2 formation with a striking partner. He told the local newspaper, the London Informer, that he would “prefer to hunt in a pair.” But he also admitted that, despite playing with Patrick Agyemang against Birmingham recently, in his favoured 4-4-2 system, he was at a loss to explain how the team had lost that particular game.

Blackstock admitted, however, that he was not sure if 4-4-2 was the best or even the right formation for the team. “Whether it`s the best formation for the team I don`t know, but any formation would be good if we were getting the results,” he told the paper.

Blackstock has not scored since netting the rebound from Buzsaky`s free-kick in the home game against Blackpool. Dex has scored 6 goals altogether this season and is amongst the front runners in the Championship for leading scorer. However, it is probably time that he started scoring again – on Saturday against Forest would be greatly appreciated!

Is Blackstock right and should QPR be playing 4-4-2 or a different formation which would probably mean that he would play up front on his own?

We want to hear your thoughts!

  • True, Boxer – I’d forgotten that little gem!! Obviously he’s reading about Dowie wanting/needing new strikers – so suddenly he’s looking out for his own back, perhaps? If he just scored regularly that would do far more good for him, imo!!

  • bit harsh to it’s probably time for him to start scoring again, he’s only gone one game without a goal. Also I watched this interview on qpr world with blackstock and he never said he preferred 4-4-2 so the headline is a little misleading.

  • I thought that he didn’t mention it specifically, but alluded to it a couple of times.

    Dexter has done well so far this season in terms of overall play – I think he perhaps could have got more goals that his chances have warrented! A few disappointments, but by and large has exceeded all expectations for me!

  • I was under the impression that he had given a separate interview to the newspaper after the Birmingham defeat – I also heard the QPRWorld interview and they seemed to me to be different! But either way, the fella needs to start scoring again 😉
