QPR v Tottenham Hotspur – Another Added to the List of Big Scalps at Loftus Road

Posted on by Site Admin

A single goal from the Moroccan Magician, Adel Taarabt, put a dent in Spurs’ drive for a Champions League qualification whilst boosting QPR’s hopes of staging this league fixture again next season. This game had everything that is good and bad about Premier League football. We had the good of a sublime free kick winning the game, as yet again underdogs QPR beat their more illustrious London neighbours to maintain the recent unbeaten home form which has seen four teams … Continue reading

The Premier League’s New ‚ÄúBad Boys‚Äù

Posted on by Site Admin

Leeds United, have, on more than one occasion, been English football’s ‚Äúbad boys‚Äù. A bunch of, let’s be honest, dirty, cheating reprobates in the 1970’s, the Leeds side of the early 2000’s featured a number of shall we say, ‚Äúmorally dubious‚Äù individuals. Now Queen’s Park Rangers are by no means of this ilk, but under Mark Hughes the club has developed a rather alarming tendency to pick up red cards. Despite Rangers being only mid-table in the Premier League disciplinary … Continue reading

Dreams Can Come True – The 1982 FA Cup Semi-Final at Highbury – Part Three

Posted on by Site Admin

On a bright spring day, the meet was in the Earl of Derby, Kilburn High Road, with my Dad, his mates and copious amounts of the black stuff. A pub that was renowned for its Guinness, the Irish, and a small group of Rangers fans. Too much drink early doors, and it was off to Highbury, where the bookies made us four-to-one against…what do they know ? As we drew nearer to the ground, I noted that Rangers were well … Continue reading

West Bromwich Albion v QPR – Rangers Lack Guile to Break the Baggies Down

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Kenny, Diakite, Hill, Ferdinand, Onuoha, Derry (Wright-Phillips), Taarabt (Helguson), Mackie, Barton, Taiwo (Traore), Zamora Subs Not Used: Cerny, Young, Gabbidon, Buzsaky Attendance: 25,521 (including approx 2,700 R’s fans) We met up with bambam at the Target just after the two Supporter’s Club coaches had departed. Around 90 minutes later we pulled up outside ‘The Vine’. This backstreet, dead end pub is certainly deceptive with a backdrop of railway lines and a subway leading to the back and beyond. It … Continue reading

An Easter Resurrection !!!

Posted on by Site Admin

A few weeks ago, I put down in writing my feelings of disappointment at the way our season was turning out. Joey Barton did not seem to agree with my views and responded on Twitter to that effect. But far more importantly, to me at least, he responded on the field of play. And, along with his ‚Äúresurrection‚Äù (to coin a phrase somewhat appropriate to Easter !), comes that of our beloved QPR. QPR have, for a number of years, … Continue reading

QPR v Swansea City – Swans Wings Clipped by Rampant Rangers

Posted on by Site Admin

Queen’s Park Rangers notched up their third consecutive home win in their bid for Premier League survival with yet another accomplished display. Three goals from Joey Barton, Jamie Mackie and a 25-yard screamer from Akos Buzsaky put paid to a Swansea City that had never won at Loftus Road before and also continued the visitors’ miserable run with their fourth consecutive defeat. Not that you would know seeing as all the press and TV pundits seem to eulogise about Brendan … Continue reading

Manchester United v QPR: A Triple Whammy of Mistakes !!!

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Kenny, Taiwo, Hill, Ferdinand, Onuoha, Diakite (Wright-Phillips), Derry, Taarabt (Smith), Mackie, Buzsaky, Bothroyd (Campbell) Subs Not Used: Cerny, Gabbidon, Young, Zamora Attendance: 75,505 I took the coach up with my Dad and Brother, getting on at the Target roundabout. We left there for Manchester at around 7.30am, feeling that it was either going to be a trouncing, or that we’d sneak a point. Obviously we were wrong, but on the way back everyone seemed fairly satisfied with the overall … Continue reading

Dreams Can Come True – The 1982 FA Cup Semi-Final at Highbury – Part Two

Posted on by Site Admin

1982 FA Cup Semi-Final, QPR v WBA. Venue: Highbury. The date: 3rd April 1982. What a great day even though I had to watch the match sitting next to a Fulham supporter, my Dad !!! I was lucky to get seat tickets. By that time I was residing in Manchester and must confess that I wasn’t a regular at Loftus Road, but a long time friend of the family and season ticket holder, Tony Pennie, came up trumps for me … Continue reading
