Owls striker Gary Hooper was brought down but Nuhiu’s tame penalty was saved down low to his left by Alex Smithies. The visitors took advantage at Hillsborough as Daniel Tozser’s … Continue reading

Bolton Wanderers (1) РQPR (1) Р“It is what it is” РBut why is it what it is?

The best part of the day! Another result. Another crack papered over. This performance was not good enough, even by our own mediocre … Continue reading

‘Bucket & Brush’ by Irish Jack (How I got Barred from the Goldhawk Club)

Posted on by Site Admin

Midway through ’66 with ‘Substitute’ peaking at No.5 in the charts, I was ever the peacock strutted Mod telling the world about ‘The Who’ and how they were my friends. I wasn’t earning a lot of money in any of the legal offices I worked in. Filing clerks were two-a-penny back then and any idiot with a reasonable knowledge of the 26 letters in the English alphabet could be a filing clerk. A friend told me he’d left his job … Continue reading

Remembering Frankie Duguid…

Posted on by Steve Russell

Two years ago today Frankie Duguid sadly passed away after a long illness. I wrote at the time that we had been on many memorable trips around the country following the R’s. Recently, going through a load of my old photos, I found the one shown above. It was taken on the LSA coach as we were homeward bound from somewhere up north. Rest in Peace Frankie. Steve Russell

QPR U21 (4) – Bristol City U21 (5)

Posted on by Steve Russell

U21 Professional Development League 2 Team: Lumley, Springer-Downes, Hamalainen, Rosenthal, Wise, Manning, Prohouly, Butler, N’Guessan, Corkery, Shodipo Subs: Herdman, Blackwood, Darbyshire Eventually I met up with Keith Davies, Roger Stokes and ChrisPTenner. Looking around there was Tom Rosenthal’s father but otherwise it was mainly Scouts. I did speak to a Chinese Student staying in Queensway who considered Rangers to be his local side, but when probed he did admit that the Red Devils were his first love. We went one … Continue reading

QPR (1) – Fulham (3) – A Total Shambles!

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Perch, Onuoha, Hall, Konchesky, Phillips (Chery), Luongo, Tozser, Hoilett (El Khayati), Mackie, Polter (Washington) Subs Not Used: Ingram, Hill, Henry, Petrasso Attendance: 17,335 The nature of this defeat hurt deeply. We again managed to show the country, in style, just how poor we are. There is a constant amongst these players…a constant to continually prove that they are not up to it at this level. You can organise, you can run all day, but the lack of technical … Continue reading

Pete Doherty & When it was: ‘All Quiet On The Western Avenue’

Posted on by ChrisPTenner

The following excellent article was written by ChrisPTenner and originally appeared in a recent issue of the German sports magazine ’11 Freunde’: I first met Pete Doherty when he was a gangly 14-year-old kid. We nicknamed him ‘Young Pete’ for obvious reasons. It’s well known that he is a Queen’s Park Rangers supporter despite being born nigh on 300 miles from London and living all over Europe due to his father’s career in the British Army. His father, also named … Continue reading

Ipswich keeper Bartosz Bialkowski made three good saves from Junior Hoilett to deny the R’s a first-half lead. The hosts continued to dominate in the second-half before Freddie Sears missed a good chance to … Continue reading

Portrait of a Chairman…Jim Gregory, the Millionaire Boss of QPR

Posted on by Steve Russell

The following article was written by John Anthony and appeared in a football monthly, dated September 1968: ‘Fifteen minutes after Queen’s Park Rangers had won the match which put them in the First Division, I met Jim Gregory in a tiny corridor behind the main stand at Villa Park. I offered him the clumsy congratulations usual on such occasions and he mumbled his thanks. I asked him the clumsy, obvious questions about how he felt at ‚Äúmaking‚Äù Division One and … Continue reading

An Emotional but Happy Return for Michael Doughty

Posted on by Steve Russell

The following interview with Michael Doughty appeared in the Forest match day programme last month: ‘The year 2012 heralded perhaps the saddest news in our long history – that our owner and lifelong supporter Nigel Doughty had died aged 54. Doughty’s passing hit everyone hard – none more so than members of his family, who had shared in the inevitable ups and downs associated with owning a football club. For son Michael, he had lost a father who inspired him … Continue reading
