Hull City (1) – QPR (1)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Perch, Onuoha, Angella, Konchesky, Faurlin, Henry, Phillips, Luongo (Doughty), Chery (Mackie), Austin Subs Not Used: Smithies, Hall, Tozser, Gladwin, Emmanuel-Thomas Attendance: 16,651 (including 629 R’s fans) I thought it was a good point in a poor game. Both full-backs for QPR wasted the ball and we gave away too many corners and set pieces which looked the only way they were going to score. To be fair, we didn’t look like scoring either, too many balls passed across … Continue reading

In Memory of Malcolm Graham: 26th January 1934 – 12th September 2015

Posted on by Site Admin

Very sad to report that Malcolm Graham, the former Barnsley, Bristol City, Leyton Orient and QPR forward has passed away at the age of 81. I saw him play a number of times for the R’s during the 1963/64 campaign including the bizarre 4-4 draw at Luton Town on the 23rd November 1963 when he scored one of our goals and more than played his part in the comeback from 4-1 down. Unfortunately for both QPR FC and Malcolm himself, … Continue reading

QPR (2) – Blackburn Rovers (2)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Perch, Onuoha, Angella, Konchesky, Henry, Tozser, Phillips, Luongo, Chery (Mackie), Austin Subs Not Used: Lumley, Hall, Hill, Doughty, Faurlin, Gladwin Attendance: 14,007 (including 425 Rovers fans) Leaving aside keepers dropping balls into the net, terrible ref and alarming defensive displays, one of the most disappointing aspects of the last two games is playing one up front. At home. In the Championship. We slaughtered Redknapp for the same and these performances are becoming a repeat of his ‘style’ – … Continue reading

‘Les Ferdinand knows what Queen’s Park Rangers should stand for’

Posted on by Site Admin

Jack Pitt-Brooke’s interesting article recently appeared in the Independent: ‘Les Ferdinand knows what Queen’s Park Rangers should stand for. It should stand for stories like his. The local boy from Ladbroke Grove, who went to school just behind Loftus Road, is running the club that found him and made him. Ferdinand is Director of Football at QPR, trying to re-impose the values and the ethos that have been lost under the flood of money in recent years. Ferdinand knows Rangers … Continue reading

QPR (1) – Nottingham Forest (2)

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Green, Perch, Onuoha, Angella (Hall), Konchesky, Henry, Tozser (Gladwin), Phillips, Luongo (Smithies), Chery, Austin Subs Not Used: Hill, Doughty, Hoilett, Emmanuel-Thomas Attendance: 15,424 (including 1,376 Forest fans) Gabriele Angella looked promising throughout his brief spell. Perch was woeful and was run ragged. Chery was hiding for most of the game (which is a shame because I think he’s brilliant). I would have preferred Ale Faurlin to of started, but I thought Massimo Luongo was fantastic. As for Rob Green, … Continue reading

Team: Denoon, Rev. Loney, Draper, Grendon, Mitchell, Broster, Lewis, Hassan, Dale, Whyman, Crossley Attendance: 3,000 This match was played at Kensal Rise on 7th April 1917 and the following match report appeared in the Luton News and Bedfordshire Chronicle five days later: ‘Luton were fortunate in securing the services of J. W. Nicholas, the Derby County and Swansea Town back, to fill the vacancy at left-back, as neither Taylor, Pugh, nor Rodway was available, and to make matters worse Elvey … Continue reading

The Bundesliga shows that fans can come first – so why aren’t we furious?

Posted on by Site Admin

Significantly lower prices. Far better atmospheres. Safe standing. Being able to have a (decent) pint while watching the game. When you start to list the ways in which watching German football trumps watching English football, it is no surprise that the Bundesliga has become a well-run stick with which to hit the gluttonous Premier League. In addition, the regular argument that the commercialisation of our national sport has delivered the best club league in the world is looking as worn … Continue reading

Visitor preview Q&A – Nottingham Forest

Posted on by Steve Sayce

Ahead of this Saturday’s early kick off at Loftus Road, we spoke to blogger and Forest fan Christian Brown (@Chris78901) for his take on the clash… Q. Under former R Dougie Freedman Forest achieved a 14th place finish last term. How did the fans respond to the team’s performance over the season? View image | gettyimages.com A. It’s been a mixed response. Personally, I feel as if we would have gone down under Stuart Pearce, and a run of 3 … Continue reading

QPR U21 (3) – Nottingham Forest U21 (1)

Posted on by Steve Russell

U21 Professional Development League 2 Team: Lumley, Furlong, Wise, Haran, Comley, Prohouly (Komodikis), Sutherland, Blackwood, Rosenthal (Butler), Mulraney (Kakay), Suk-Young Sub Not Used: Hudnott On a clear, dry night at Loftus road, last Friday was ‘Rangers Night’ as was the case for a time during the mid-60’s. The visitors should have taken the lead when Joe Lumley gave the ball away following a back pass. The lucky recipient lined-up the ball for his team mate who proceeded to shoot straight … Continue reading
