When A Substitution Was Ordered From Kuala Lumpur – Telegraph Sport

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR supporters could be forgiven for not remembering their derby match against Crystal Palace on April 4th this year. It was a turgid goalless draw and yet, unbeknown to those in the stands at Loftus Road, something extraordinary was happening as midfielder Lee Cook came on for the home side at half-time to replace Liam Miller. Telegraph Sport can disclose that the substitution was made on the direct orders of Flavio Briatore, the QPR Chairman and co-owner, working 6,500 miles … Continue reading

The recent Scalextric fundraising night was a great success with over ¬£2,000 being raised for the QPR in the Community Trust. The event was held in the Blue and White Bar and each team was made up of four players who raced on an eight lane track. The Indy R’s team comprised of Sam, Paul,¬†Adam and Yazz. Paul Finney was also there in an un-official capacity and insisted on having a go. The inevitable happened of course and he eventually … Continue reading

QPR At Highbury Against Other Opposition

Posted on by Site Admin

I have been to Highbury four times to see QPR play against other opposition. I was also aware of a FA Cup replay in 1954 and the time when Loftus Road was closed in 1930 following crowd trouble, but further research revealed that there were in fact another three occasions. Later, I came across a rare programme on ebay and then referred to Gordon Macey’s ‘History of Queen’s Park Rangers’. The final piece of reference was the acquisition of Leonard … Continue reading

Team: Cerny, Ramage, Hall, Leigertwood, Routledge, Connolly, Faurlin (Mahon), Simpson (Helguson), Ephraim, Borrowdale, Taarabt (Vine). Subs Not Used: Heaton, Stewart, Buzsaky, Pellicori Attendance: 5,866 A first league win of the season (home or away) and a welcome three points it was too. The R’s have a tendency to slip up against teams like this and, on what seemed like the shortest pitch I have ever seen, I feared the worst before kick-off. We got off to a blistering start with … Continue reading
