Puma Youth Alliance Cup Group 3 Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Brown, O’Brien, Ford, Wright, Balanta, Arthur, German, Rose, Davenport.¬† Subs: Crowther, Vanterpool, Morgan-Cummings, Folkes, Parker QPR almost went behind in the first 5 minutes when the visitors hit the post. This prompted the R’s to step up the pace and two good chances then followed. Romone Rose had an effort that went just wide and then the Bournemouth keeper was forced to dive bravely at Angelo Balanta’s feet. On 19 minutes, … Continue reading

My 50 Years Of Support For QPR FC (7th September 1957 to 7th September 2007) Part Two

Posted on by Site Admin

A new dawn has broken has it not ? These words which were spoken by Tony Blair in May 1997 would have been far more appropriate had they been said by a certain Mr J. Gregory, the ambitious new Chairman at the start of the 1965/66 football Season. Yes, ‘Uncle Jim’ was taking us forward big time ! There were new signings, Langley, Allen, Sanderson, Watson, Marsh together with fresh Youth players like, Sibley, Hunt, Hazell, Leach, the Morgan twins … Continue reading

Subs: Crowther, Vanterpool, Davenport, Morgan-Cummings and Parker (formerly known as Gardner) After the usual magnificent sausage roll and cup of tea, I looked around for the ‘Saturday Morning Mob’ and in particular a visitor today, Dag who was over from Norway for a few days.

Letter From Tibet (FAO G Paladini)

Posted on by Site Admin

High on a plateau in Tibet, in a region that is almost inaccessible, stands a Monastery that is home to a ‘Silent Order’ of Monks. Aside from the obvious spiritual leaders, the Monks have always had their own leader or to be more precise, the one known as ‘The Master’. A line unbroken for fifteen generations, that is until sixty odd years ago when the last ‘Master’ left this life and moved onto the next one. Since then, the temporary … Continue reading

Saturday 4th March 1967 – Eighth Account

Posted on by Site Admin

My first trip to Wembley and it was to see the Rangers, in a major Cup Final of all things. This wasn’t supposed to be my first trip there and the R’s weren’t really supposed to be there for the first time either ! You see, I had a ticket for the World Cup Final in 1966 which had been given to me by an Irish mate of my Dad, a ten shilling standing ticket if I recall correctly. I … Continue reading

Independent R’s Statement

Posted on by Site Admin

It has been brought to our attention that a post (s) has been made on a Website inferring that the Independent R’s may have been responsible in contacting QPR FC and making certain allegations. The Independent R’s have no problem whatsoever refuting the claim. Indeed, we invite anyone to provide proof of the said allegation. Whilst the Independent R’s are saddened by this episode, unfortunately we are not surprised. Recent antagonism towards this Site and others are a sad reflection … Continue reading

QPR U18 (3) – Swansea City U18 (0)

Posted on by Site Admin

¬†Puma Youth Alliance Cup Group 3 Team: Goodchild, Coyne, Ford, Brown, Wright, Davenport, O’Brien, Arthur, German, Rose, Balanta Subs: Crowther, Harris, Gardner, Folkes and a U16’s player (Dave ???) Rangers ultimately cruised to victory in this Cup fixture with a workmanlike performance that sometimes lacked the free-flowing football and excitement (at both ends) of recent games. The lads bucked the trend of recent home games and started the game brightly, putting pressure on the Swansea defence from the first whistle. … Continue reading

Hoddle Emerges As Front Runner

Posted on by Site Admin

Dave McIntyre writes in this week’s Gazette that the former England boss could be on his way to Loftus Road. QPR could be set to offer former England boss Glen Hoddle the Manager’s job at Loftus Road. Rangers approached Hoddle on Thursday after cooling their interest in Glenn Roeder. Hayes-born Hoddle, who had spells in charge of Chelsea and Tottenham, has been out of the game since his reign as Wolves Manager ended in July last year. If he shows … Continue reading

Growing Up In The Bush – Part One

Posted on by Site Admin

This article should be read in conjunction with the brilliant offerings from Irish Jack who was also a founder member of the Kelmscott Gang. On the 6th July 1946, QPR increased their support by one. Having been born in Hammersmith Hospital and within the sound of Loftus Road, it was inevitable that I would follow my Father and become a bonded slave to the Club. The following three and half years were spent in Yorkshire and when Kelmscott Gardens in … Continue reading

Items Of Desire: QPR Sew-On Badges

Posted on by Site Admin

On show is my collection of QPR sew-on badges which I’ve amassed over the years. Not a great amount so far but then again, not a great amount were produced. Some of them are as rare as the proverbial ‘Rocking Horse Shxx’, as what usually happened, the badges were sewn on and as time went by, the garment got worn out or eventually went out of fashion and was binned. I never sewed any of mine on so I’ve got … Continue reading
