Football During the WW2 Years.

Posted on by Site Admin

Last year, my summer reading consisted of an interesting book by Jack Rollin called, ‘Soccer at War’ which is a complete account of football in Britain during WW2. Although the angle is football, it also draws an interesting picture of everyday life during the war years.. When Germany attacked Poland on 1st September 1939, the football season had barely started and the games went ahead as scheduled on Saturday 2nd September, after which the league season was abandoned after only … Continue reading

‘Grounds For Divorce’ By Mel Huckridge

QPR U18 (2) Aldershot Town U18 (1)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Cowler, Harriman, Sanderson, Doughty, Parmenter, O’Donnell, Bewick, Sutherland, Graham, Henry-Francis, Sharif. A free kick in from the left was screwed just wide of the post then, a Marcel Henry-Francis shot was blocked after he set himself up to pull the trigger. Another ball came in from the left and Mo Sharif quickly got into position and his lovely side-flick was saved by the keeper. What was to be the pass of the half came when Tony Sanderson knocked over … Continue reading

QPR v Crystal Palace – Normal Services Resumed

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR got back to winning ways and notched up their 20th win of the campaign following the midweek blip against Millwall. Two goals from Heidar Helguson put paid to Dougie Freedman’s Crystal Palace attempts at winning away for the first time since before the clocks went back. Warnock recently completed his first year in charge and in that time he has seen his latest team beat his old team on all three occasions. I wish he’d joined 20 years ago … Continue reading

Team: Kenny, Orr, Hill, Gorkss, Shittu, Derry, Faurlin, Taarabt (Smith), Buzsaky (Miller), Routledge, Helguson (Chimbonda). Subs Not Used: Cerny, Vaagan Moen, Ephraim, Hulse. Attendance: 14,104 (including 2,186 R’s fans) A poor display, but what’s important is how we come back from it. Other results went our way yet again so not too much damage. Adel has been definitely under par for the last few games, or is it that he’s just been more closely marked ? All in all, it … Continue reading

QPR v Leicester City – Unbeaten Run Extended to 11 Games

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR extended their unbeaten run to 11 games as a late, late winner from Ishmael Miller put paid to Leicester’s valiant efforts in front of a packed Loftus Road. In the process, we stretched our lead to 8 points at the top of the table following other results and with the Cardiff game still to be played, being an evening kick off. If the truth be known, Leicester were hard done by as they matched us player for player and … Continue reading
