QPR v Doncaster Rovers

Team: Ikeme, Ramage (Taarabt), Stewart, Gorkss, Hill, Connolly (Borrowdale), Buzsaky, Faurlin, Cook, Simpson, German (Vine). Subs Not Used: Cerny, Oastler, Quashie, Balanta. Attendance: 11,178 I was so pleased that Antonio was starting, well deserved in my opinion. We knew that with the team low on confidence and Doncaster’s reputation as a good footballing side that we were in for a tough encounter. It was a much better atmosphere though which improved even more when Antonio was well placed to put … Continue reading

All Change In The Boardroom Or Is It ?

Posted on by Site Admin

There had been many rumours flying around regarding the intentions of Flavio Briatore and exactly what was going to happen to Gianni Paladini ? The Club Statement last Friday evening in some ways came as a surprise but nobody has actually departed and it’s not exactly a major reshuffle is it ? So a new Chairman of the Holding Company , the Mittal family have increased their shareholding but Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone remain as shareholders and Gianni Paladini … Continue reading

Thorpebank Road, Shepherds Bush & The QPR Connection

Posted on by Site Admin

If I mention Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Jones, older supporters will immediately think of the quirky BBC series ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’. Amongst the most famous sketches from the show were the ‘New Gas Cooker’ sketch and the ‘Ministry of Silly Walks’ sketch. Both of these were filmed in Thorpebank Road, Shepherds Bush in 1969. So what’s that got to do with Queen’s Park Rangers ? Well nothing, but if you visit … Continue reading

Coventry City v QPR

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Ikeme, Ramage, Stewart, Gorkss, Hill, Buzsaky (Taarabt), Connolly, Faurlin, Cook, Simpson, Priskin (German). Subs Not Used: Cerny, Borrowdale, Vine, Quashie, Balanta. Attendance: 15,247 Poor atmosphere and a poor crowd gave for a poor match. At times, the silence was deafening and it was two sides who deserved a share of the points. We started the game looking like losers and ended it finally with at least some sort of urgency. There is an air of total disillusion from fans … Continue reading

QPR v Ipswich Town

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Ikeme, Stewart, Gorkss, Connolly, Hill, Cook, Faurlin, Quashie (Taarabt), Ephraim (Buzsaky), Simpson, Bent (Vine). Subs Not Used: Cerny, Borrowdale, Balanta, German. Attendance:10,940 The first half will go down as the worst I have ever seen. It summed up the state of QPR at the moment as in they looked like a bunch of overpaid amateurs who only just turned their hand to playing football. Player power has killed the squads’ chances of progressing and even usually committed players like … Continue reading

Derek Buxton In Memoriam

Posted on by Site Admin

The name Derek Buxton is familiar to many QPR fans who are old enough to have read the match programmes in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. A couple of weeks ago, we received the sad news that Derek had passed away on Saturday, 23rd January, 2010 at the age of 74, following a short struggle with cancer. He is survived by two daughters and a son. Derek was a QPR legend in his very own special way. His regular ‚ÄúStatistics‚Äù … Continue reading

‘Just Talk To Us’, Say Rangers Fans ‚Äì Ben Kosky In The Kilburn Times

Posted on by Site Admin

Supporters’ groups have urged the QPR Board to re-open dialogue with them in the wake of Saturday’s heated demonstration outside Loftus Road. Hundreds of Rangers fans gathered outside the main entrance after their team’s 1-0 defeat by Scunthorpe to voice their discontent with majority shareholder Flavio Briatore and his fellow Directors. Lack of stability on the playing and coaching side, the sale of star winger Wayne Routledge to Newcastle and Briatore’s recent remarks, appearing to dismiss supporters’ concerns, have all … Continue reading

Team: Ikeme, Hill, Gorkss, Connolly, Leigertwood, Buzsaky (Balanta), Quashie, Faurlin, Taarabt (Cook), Vine (German), Simpson. Subs Not Used: Cerny, Ramage, Stewart, Ephraim, Balanta. Attendance: 13,105¬† It was another shockingly poor performance on the pitch and another embarrassing defeat. In front of something around 8,000 paying fans (13,000 announced and 3,000 complimentary tickets given out to local schools but there was not, simply, that many in attendance), of which several pockets were singing songs against the Board and at Briatore in … Continue reading
