Season Review – September/October 2011

Posted on by Site Admin

September opened with a Monday night home game against Newcastle United, beamed live by Sky Sports. Interest focused on our new acquisitions, notably ex-Toon, Joey Barton; whose first game for the Hoops was destined to be against the team he had just left to join us ! Despite a great amount of huffing and puffing on our part, and enough chances to score a hatful, the game somehow ended up 0-0. Loftus Road was, nevertheless, rocking with a sense of … Continue reading

Season Review – August 2011

After winning the Championship last season – and with it the glory of promotion – we have finally finished what has been a long, long season. A season that began with great hope, but was, if I’m honest, filled with more downs than ups; has ended at last ! And what an ending it turned out to be at Manchester City on Sunday 13th May 2012 ! But a review can’t go backwards ! So let’s start at the beginning … Continue reading

The 1982 FA Cup Final: QPR (1) – Tottenham Hotspur (1)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Hucker, Fenwick, Gillard, Waddock, Hazell, Roeder, Currie, Flanagan, Allen (Micklewhite), Stainrod, Gregory Attendance: 100,000 Clive Allen’s goal at Highbury secured our place at Wembley and Tottenham had defeated Leicester City 2-0 at Villa Park so the FA Cup Final was to be an all-London affair. Elsewhere, the campaign to re-take the Falklands was still underway, which provoked an intense media debate as to whether Tottenham’s two Argentine players should play in the final. As it turned out Ossie Ardiles … Continue reading

Rangers Can Expect Top-Half Next Season

Posted on by Site Admin

The 2-3 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend was, incidentally, the second time Queen’s Park Rangers have been denied a share of the spoils by a late Citizens goal. The first occurrence of this was back in November, where a 74th minute header from Yaya Toure secured all three points following a spirited, aggressive performance from the home side. This time, Rangers put on a defensive master class against the eventual Premier League winners. Bodies were thrown into the … Continue reading

Manchester City v QPR – Mission Impossible ? Mission Accomplished.

Posted on by Site Admin

Manchester City and QPR played out possibly the most extraordinary football match ever seen as one team came back from the dead to clinch the league title in the last seconds while QPR stayed up. In the build-up to the game, everyone was saying that it was going to be a routine win for the champions elect, but Mark Hughes’ QPR side didn’t even read the script. In fact, they put the script through the shredder along with 45,000 home … Continue reading

Simon Stainrod on Reaching the 1982 FA Cup Final

Posted on by Site Admin

The following article was written in 1982 by Anthony Hawkswell who was in conversation with Simon Stainrod ahead of the FA Cup Final. It was extracted from a popular football magazine of the time: ‚ÄúQPR are every bit as good as Tottenham and I’m sure that my skipper Glenn Roeder will be the man holding the FA Cup aloft at Wembley on Saturday. It’s going to be an attractive final and everyone will enjoy it…except Spurs ! Over the last … Continue reading

Back From the Dead

Posted on by Site Admin

Queen’s Park Rangers have a superior home record to Liverpool this season. Five wins on the trot and from relegation certainties in February to conquerors of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, it has been a remarkable turnaround. It is hard not to attribute this entirely to the arrival of Mark Hughes. To say supporters were sceptical when the 48-year-old arrived is somewhat of an understatement. The former Chelsea striker would, managing any other club, have been greeted with a barrage … Continue reading
