QPR Won 4-0 At Highbury in 1966 to Lift the London Challenge Cup Again.

Posted on by Site Admin

On Tuesday 10th May 1966, Rangers won the London FA Challenge Cup Final for the fourth time. The R’s lifted the trophy at Highbury after an emphatic 4-0 victory. The game kicked off at 7pm and oddly, apart from the line-up, there was no other mention of QPR inside the four page programme ! Sean Kilfeather wrote the following report for the Willesden & Brent Chronicle: ‘The clouds of disappointment have lifted a little from Loftus Road and three pieces … Continue reading

QPR v Ipswich Town & the Return of Big Dan.

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR ground out a precious win to maintain their 5 point lead at the top on a night that saw the return of a Rangers hero and the emergence of an unsung hero. Goals by Clint Hill and Heidar Helguson will take all the headlines, but all fans eyes were on QPR’s No.4 on his first start for the R’s since April 2006 in a 1-2 loss at the Madejski Stadium. Neil Warnock surprised everyone by making changes at the … Continue reading

Team: Kenny, Hill, Orr, Gorkss, Connolly, Derry, Faurlin, Routledge, Taarabt, Miller, Helguson. Subs: Cerny, Hall, Shittu, Chimbonda, Buzsaky, Vaagan Moen, Hulse. Attendance: 10,521 Well, I was dreading the journey to Preston as snow had been forecast and I had flashbacks to Leeds away where I must’ve had twelve layers on, brrrrrrr, cold. So I set off from Hull at 11am in driving rain and got to Leeds where the snow had settled. The further I got along the M62 the … Continue reading

QPR v Nottingham Forest – A Missed Opportunity ?

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR extended their lead at the top to 6 points with a draw against the Championship’s in-form team, Nottingham Forest, who played for 70 minutes with 10 men. So was it a missed opportunity ? Certainly for Forest it was. Like the game at the City ground, if the visitors had been more adventurous then maybe 3 points would have been travelling home on the M1. I thought they were the better side first half, before and after the red … Continue reading

QPR U18 (3) – Stevenage U18 (0)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Deane, Harriman, Sanderson, Doughty, Parmenter, O’Donnell, Bewick, Sutherland, Gibbons, Graham, Sharif. ‚ÄúDon’t let him shoot‚Äù screamed the Stevenage keeper, but it was too late, Bagasun Graham’s shot from 20 yards skimmed along the ground and found the corner of the net. The visitors were having a fair amount of possession, but they didn’t really look that dangerous. Mo Sharif burst into the box, beat a couple of players, but the final defender stuck out his foot and just denied … Continue reading

Reading v QPR: Groundhog Day ? Not Quite..

Posted on by Site Admin

Ten-man QPR broke their duck at the Madejski Stadium with a hard fought win. Wayne Routledge scored the winner, but there were heroes in every position on Friday night. The similarities with last season’s game at the same ground were uncanny. Six players remained from our team that lost to an eccentric refereeing performance last year and this time the referee took centre stage once again. Steve Russell, JJ, Finney and I turned up at steveqpr881’s local like last season, … Continue reading

The Reverend Charles Gordon Young & The Birth of Queen’s Park Rangers.

Posted on by Site Admin

In Spring 1886 St Jude’s Institute FC played local rivals Christ Church Rangers in a friendly. After the match, George Wodehouse, a founder member of Christ Church Rangers, suggested on the advice of a friend that the two clubs should merge. He felt that a combined team would be much stronger than either team separately. This idea was put to both clubs and a merger was agreed. However, when the newly combined team played under the name of St Jude’s … Continue reading

QPR (2) – Portsmouth (0)

Posted on by Site Admin

According to Steve Cotterill, Pompey were the better team and played us off the pitch as they did at Fratton Park (again his words). They ‘out-bullied us’ would be a better way of putting it as their game plan seemed to just use their physicality to stop us playing and IF the ball should manage to enter our half, and ONLY then, they would try and play football. The fact that we seemed to copy their ancient style of hoofball … Continue reading
