Situated close to Hammersmith Bridge, this riverside pub is said to have been established in 1849 and then re-built in its present form around 1870/80. The Hammersmith Regatta in August 1921 was in aid of the West London Hospital and the prizes were presented on the balcony of the West End Boathouse which used to stand on the opposite corner of Mall Road. It was destroyed in the Second World War and was later replaced by private flats. The pub … Continue reading

QPR v Chelsea – ‘I’ve Never Felt More Like Singing the Blues….’

Posted on by Site Admin

‘When Rangers Win and Chelsea Lose, Oh Rangers, You Got Me Singing the Blues’. The fact that both these lines happened in the same game makes it all the sweeter. Queen’s Park Rangers beat Chelsea in an ill tempered local derby which saw the visitors reduced to nine men before half-time. QPR won their first home game since April and their first win at home in the Premier League since beating West Ham back in April 1996 with the only … Continue reading

In Memory of Paul Harford: 9th August 1942 – 23rd September 2011

Posted on by Site Admin

Paul Harford passed away last month after a long illness. He lived around the corner from me in South Harrow although he was actually born in Cheltenham and it wasn’t until he eventually moved to Kilburn in the late 50’s that he became an R’s fan. I was looking through my 1964/65 programmes recently and¬† in the Walsall programme dated 1st January 1965 (when Friday night was Rangers night), I noticed that Paul had won ¬£2.00 in the Jackpot Draw … Continue reading

QPR’s search for their first home win of the season continued as they played out a dour 1-1 draw with struggling Blackburn Rovers. Rangers did manage to take the lead for the first time at home since they hosted Leeds last May with Heidar Helguson becoming the first QPR player to score at Loftus Road in the Premier League since Kevin Gallen in April ’96.

Back in October 1987, Rangers travelled the relatively short distance to Le Havre in France for a Saturday evening friendly game. Rangers were top of the table and playing at Anfield one week later versus second placed Liverpool. It was the season where there … Continue reading
