QPR v Hull City – Anyone For Snooker ?

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR now stand on the finishing line of promotion following a third consecutive draw, this time at home to Hull City. And for the third game in a row they were made to rue the chances missed both on the pitch and in the Championship table. Wayne Routledge gave them the perfect start and once again they should’ve been home and dry by half time, but let the visitors dictate the last 30 minutes as Hull needed to win to … Continue reading

Cardiff City v QPR – Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man

Posted on by Site Admin

And that man is Adel Taarabt. QPR came back from behind twice to share the points with Cardiff in what turned out to be the best game of football this amazing season has seen. Adel Taarabt was the star of the show for QPR as he showed to any doubters why Warnock gave him the captain’s armband back in August with a performance that will be remembered for years to come. Rangers’ fans came by coach, car, train and plane … Continue reading

‘Singing the Blues’ was written by Melvin Endsley in 1956. Guy Mitchell had a big hit single with it and Tommy Steele’s version also topped the charts in January 1957.

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR edged another point closer to the finishing line that is promotion on a night of frustration all round. A goalless draw in front of the Sky cameras wasn’t what 16,000 QPR fans had come to witness so the bunting and party poppers will have to be put away for now as party poopers Derby County did everything in their power to stop us from playing football whether by foul means or fair. On a more positive note, Paddy Kenny … Continue reading

Posted on by Site Admin

Rangers had made a good start to the season winning 3-1 at Wrexham on the Saturday with two goals from Clive Allen and one from Andy King. As I cut through Batman Close, I was surprised at the length of the queue leading to the Loft turnstiles. The official attendance that night was 18,703 and this larger than average crowd was partly due to the introduction of the controversial Omniturf pitch in the summer at a cost of around ¬£350,000.The … Continue reading

Team: Deane, Harriman, Sanderson, Walker, Parmenter, O’Donnell, Gibbons, Sutherland, Graham, Henry-Francis, Sharif. As I entered the Training Ground, the first thing I noticed was Neil Warnock being interviewed and then on the pitch over to his left, the 1st team squad were involved in a non-contact training session. As for the U18’s, there was no Michael Doughty or Sam Bewick of course, but Gareth Deane was back in goal and Sam Cowler was going back to West Ham. ‘Bags’ Graham … Continue reading

Posted on by Site Admin

QPR restored their 9 point lead over second place Norwich with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Neil Warnock’s former club Sheffield United. In doing so, it opened the trap door for the Blades to no doubt take up hostilities with their city neighbours next season in League 1. Two goals from Wayne Routledge and a 20 yard thunderbolt from Alejandro Faurlin gave Rangers their 22nd win and their 22nd clean sheet of the season with no doubt more to come. … Continue reading
