It was some understatement from QPR’s first-team coach. Harry Redknapp’s unbeaten side have not so much hit the ground running as sprinting, with this hard-earned victory, their third in four games. ‚ÄúYou’ve got to get a barometer on how you’re … Continue reading

Queen’s Park Rangers Vs Ipswich Town 17 August 2013: The fine start continues, this time with a sterner test…

Posted on by Steve Sayce

An icy blast of winter made an unexpected August return to W12 as the ‘Tractor Boys’ came to town. Well, not really ‘icy’, but you would be forgiven for thinking so by the appearance of blankets amongst the ‘prawn sandwich brigade’ of the C Club. It wasn’t the most pleasant of summer afternoons as a slightly makeshift Rangers XI underlined the lack of depth in Harry Redknapp’s squad. Armand Traore, Alejandro Faurlin and Andy Johnson had all been ruled out … Continue reading

England v Scotland – the Queen’s Park Rangers Connections

Posted on by Steve Russell

For anyone under the age of 35, matches between the two countries that invented the game of football and who staged what’s regarded as the world’s first ever football international in 1872, have been few and far between. But if you grew up before the mid-1980’s, when for a variety of reasons the fixture unfortunately fell into disrepute, the game was always one of THE highlights of the season – no matter which country you were supporting. To highlight how … Continue reading
