    Scored a late penalty to equalise against Bristol City and then scored in the shoot-out. He seems to have re-established himself at QPR this season and really should be considered as much of an option as any of the other Championship midfielders under 25: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49245333

    Seems to be playing as a wing back just like Stevens is. Certainly comfortable on the ball, his positional play might need some work though.

    Looks like Manning is progressing nicely at QPR. Learning his trade and only 23, but could definitely be a viable option at left back in a year’s time...

    Mick McCarthy was at Loftus Road today. I hope he liked what he saw

    Was having a look through QPR forum to see if they were discussing anything about Masterson. Realized how highly they rate Manning. Since converting to left wing back by Warburton, he has been their player of the season so far, topping a number of their team stats charts. It’s getting interesting. His contract expires next summer, he has an option to extend it by one year. Southampton and Newcastle both allegedly sniffing around for January moves. Admittedly, I’ve never seen him play but worth monitoring closely. Certainly should have been in Micks squad by now, considering his bizarre Hourihane LB experiment, and Dohertys subpar performance at LB today. Some ultra reliable resources referenced below:

    I think the timelines were against him, as they have been for a number of Mick's potential options (which is why I feel some of the criticism directed at Mick for his selections have been unfair). At the start of September, Stevens was the obvious #1 leftback, with Cunningham as back-up, with a couple of makeshift options available (Manning would have been a makeshift option himself, having only just started playing left-back). And even Doherty, on paper, would have been a much more obvious option in the run-up to today's game (experienced Premier League full-back, who has played on both right and left vs young Championship midfield player, who has only recently moved into defence). Based on this I was initially going to say that it's too late for Manning to feature under Mick but, with Cunningham out now, I guess there is the possibility of a squad call-up in November as back-up to Stevens (although Derrick Williams might still be just ahead in the pecking-order). Also, if he continues his upward trajectory, he could be called up for whatever games we are playing in the Spring - more likely if we do somehow get the victory we need to qualify without the Nations League playoffs and are playing friendlies to build up to the Finals.

    Manning is talented but would be best served trying to find a club that play him in a more central midfield position as defensively he is too dodgy to be a good Premiership left back IMO.

    Watched a bit of the game against Milwall this weekend and I was impressed with him. I wasnt glued to it but everytime I looked up Manning seemed to be at the center of good things QPR were doing

    It's funny, he was an out and out winger in his LOI days, and a dangerous one at that. I never saw him becoming a central player at all. The modern wing back suits him, as it's not so much about defensive capabilities anymore, as it is about getting up and down the wing in a support role and chipping in with a few goals.

    He is too slow, and gets caught out of position, it would be like watching Ian Harte all over again, without the free kick ability or set piece delivery.

    Nice goal. Similar to weekend, finish to corner outside the area.

    Robinson with the second, and Manning showing why he can’t be trusted as an international full back. He had at least 6 seconds to position himself goal side of Robinson when Barbet got dragged over. Instead he stands off and looks for offside. I’m with POS on this one having watched him a good bit pre covid. It does appear his head was turned with the mention of a couple of prem clubs, and he got ahead of himself. Needs to work a lot harder on defensive side to put himself in contention for an Irish berth.

    Still though, he’s ahead of Ryan Burke (for now!)

    Is he a long term wing back or left back? Or will he play himself into left or middle of midfield?

    On a side note, our other left back in this game O’Shea just caught out badly with a ball over the top, incredible finish by Eze, worth the watch. Up to now O’Shea has been pretty solid

    He’s playing left back in flat back 4 today. But he’s looked best left wing back (with left centre back covering him) from what I saw. He’s good going forward there’s no doubt. Haven’t seen him play left mid personally, perhaps he has?

    It's just if he's not defensively sound enough for left back in a back four then he's very restricted. Not many clubs need a specialist left wing back- not even QPR do sometimes.

    He played left mid when he broke through initially. Particularly at QPR, he was left of a midfield three. And played closer to the middle at Rotherham. I think he could have been a left winger at Galway but I stand for correction.
