QPR v Millwall – Fourth Spot Confirmed and a Valuable Point for the Visitors

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson, Onuoha, Dunne, Hill, Benayoun (Hoilett), Barton, Carroll, Kranjcar (Zamora), Morrison, Austin (Doyle). Subs Not Used: Murphy, Suk-Young, Hughes, Henry. Attendance: 15,725 (including 1,367 visitors in the Upper School End) I think that Rob Green’s original intention was to attempt to push the ball over the bar. The ball did not go high enough and as it curled back towards the net Green just palmed it in! Also his distribution is terrible, so slow witted, and by the … Continue reading

QPR v Watford – Play-Off Place Secured

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson (Hoilett), Traore, Onuoha, Dunne, Hill, Barton, Carroll, Morrison, Doyle (Zamora), Austin (Henry). Subs Not Used: Murphy, Hughes, Suk-Young, Keane. Attendance: 16,951 (including 1,773 Watford fans) Harry delivered a curved ball yet again with his system of 3-5-2. Why we have to match Watford’s system is beyond me and for 60+ minutes we were overrun and second best all-round. The starting eleven was excellent as a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3, but our three centre-backs looked lost when defending … Continue reading

Tony Ingham – A QPR Legend who will never be Forgotten

Posted on by Steve Russell

QPR legend Tony Ingham sadly passed away on this day in 2010. In the Bolton Wanderers match programme dated 14th March 1970, regular contributor Michael Wale featured him in his ‘Report’ series: ‘Did you know that Rangers have a man on their staff who played in the First Division for Leeds United? One of the longest serving members of Queen’s Park Rangers is a Yorkshireman, Tony Ingham who hails from Harrogate. He came to Loftus Road from Leeds United in … Continue reading

Leicester Vs QPR – Nugent strike gives Old-Gent Redknapp food for thought

Posted on by Gary Decaires

A clinical second half finish by David Nugent was enough to give champions-to-be Leicester City maximum points in a evenly matched game with the R’s. Poor finishing from the away team meant Harry Redknapp’s men left the King Power Stadium empty handed on a day when yet again the team selection baffled the travelling fans. Just a few hundred yards away from Leicester’s ground is a Mecca Bingo Hall. It could be argued that this is where Redknapp used the … Continue reading

The Seventh Taddy & Co. QPR Cigarette Card – Alfred Gittins

Posted on by Steve Russell

Taddy & Co. produced three sets of cards in their Prominent Footballer series. This is now the seventh QPR card that I have featured from the first series in 1907. They issued another set the following year and a number of these cards would have included the same players. I have two cards for Alf Gittins, one of which is an original and the other one is from the re-printed set that was issued in 1992. The pictures are both … Continue reading

Millie at the Goldhawk Club in 1964

Posted on by Site Admin

The following report was published on the front cover of the Shepherd’s Bush Gazette on the 7th May 1964, and describes a concert given at the Goldhawk Social Club by young Ska singer, Millie (Small), who had a number one hit at the time with ‘My Boy Lollipop’. The language is somewhat archaic but is, of course, very much of its time, 50 years ago. In the attitudes of this period, young Millie is perceived as an almost exotic creature … Continue reading

Team: Green 7, Simpson 7, Assou-Ekotto 6, Carroll 6, Onuoha 7, Dunne 6, Benayoun 7, Jenas 6 (Henry 6), Austin 6 (Zamora 7), Morrison 6, Hoilett 6 (Kranjcar 6) Substitutes not used: Keane, Yun, Hughes, Murphy It was a day of both commemoration and celebration for the early kick-off as the Sky cameras once again visited Loftus Road. The start was delayed by 7 minutes in recognition of the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster and the 96 who lost … Continue reading

Blackburn Rovers v QPR

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson, Dunne, Young, Assou-Ekotto (Suk-Young), Hoilett, Benayoun, Henry, Carroll (Maiga), Morrison, Keane (Austin) Subs Not Used: Murphy, Donaldson, O’Neil, Zamora. Attendance: 12,915 (including 410 R’s fans) Well I don’t get the chance to see the R’s a lot, but if Tuesday’s performance was anything to go by then I feel sorry for the 400 die-hard fans that travelled. The team seemed clueless and looked like it was a training session for some. I can’t believe that this is … Continue reading

AFC Bournemouth v QPR: ‚ÄúWe’re too Predictable‚Äù – Harry Redknapp

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Simpson, Dunne, Hill, Assou-Ekotto, Hoilett, Carroll, Jenas (Benayoun), Morrison, Traore (Zamora), Maiga (Austin). Subs Not Used: Murphy, Young, Suk-Young, Henry. Attendance: 11,307 (including 1,409 R’s fans) Well Harry excelled with his team selection yet again. We all know that Clint Hill and Richard Dunne have no pace and need the protection of a holding midfielder, i.e. Karl Henry who was excellent against Blackpool. But no, Harry plays Jenas and Carroll who both push on, can’t tackle and give … Continue reading
