Bright Future must not overlook the Lessons of History

Posted on by Steve Russell

My thanks to Garry Coady for alerting me to this superb newsletter written by Dion Fanning for the Irish Sunday Independent: ‘QPR are a club that believes that some good will come from everything. There is very little beauty at Loftus Road yet it is currently the ground I most enjoy visiting. This is not because it is the football ground closest to my house, although maybe that adds to my affection. It isn’t necessarily because the floodlights light up … Continue reading

Team: Green, Isla, Dunne, Caulker, Suk-Young, Vargas (Mutch), Barton, Henry, Fer (Phillips), Zamora (Kranjcar), Austin. Subs Not Used: McCarthy, Ferdinand, Onuoha, Hoilett. Attendance: 17,785 (including 1,583 Burnley fans) I was not Richard Dunne’s biggest fan when he arrived at the club, but I’m more than happy to be proved wrong. On Saturday, at more than one stage, he was struggling for pace, however, he made up for it big style. His timing, tackling, vision, reading of the game, moreover, his … Continue reading

Posted on by Steve Russell

After receiving Roger Stokes’ text, I logged on to the Club’s website and their tribute read as follows: ‘The club has been saddened to hear of the passing of supporter and former employee, Malcolm Oakley. Malcolm, 66, worked in the ticket office. He was also an ardent fan who picked up the club’s supporter of the year award in 2013 having not missed a home fixture in 50 years. Malcolm was well known by many who follow QPR and will … Continue reading

In Memory of Malcolm Oakley: QPR v Leicester City – More Shots than a Fairground Rifle Range on a Busy Bank Holiday

Posted on by Finney

Team: Green, Suk-Young (Traore), Caulker, Onuoha, Isla, Fer, Henry, Barton, Vargas (Mutch), Kranjcar (Hoilett), Austin. Subs Not Used: McCarthy, Ferdinand, Phillips, Wright-Phillips. Attendance: 18,054 (including 1,841 Leicester fans) Another ‘must win’ game…and we did just that, but as always, we just don’t do easy. It was another cracking atmosphere, and a team selection that looked suspect, which subsequently proved to be a slow start. However, we had our moments, as did Leicester. We always looked suspect at the back throughout … Continue reading

Attendance: 51,915 (including 1,600 R’s fans) Harry Redknapp has long admired Moussa Sissoko, but he could have done without the France midfielder illuminating the Tyneside dusk by scoring Newcastle United’s winning goal, on a day that left Queen’s Park Rangers bottom of the Premier League. A couple of months ago, Alan Pardew found himself in a similarly worrying … Continue reading
