Crystal Palace U23 (2) – QPR U23 (1)

Posted on by Steve Russell

U23 Professional Development League Played at Dulwich Hamlet FC Team: Dieng, Paul, Hamalainen, Owens, Arthur, Finney, Bowler, Eze, Wright, Chair, Grego-Cox Sub Not Used: Herdman This was my first trip to the Champion Hill Stadium, the home of Dulwich Hamlet FC. This new, smaller Stadium, was built on the same site as their old one and was opened in time for the commencement of the 1992-93 season. Now, apparently, they are regarded as London’s most ‘hipster’ football club! I was … Continue reading

QPR U23 (1) – Birmingham City U23 (3)

Posted on by Steve Russell

U23 Professional Development League Team: Dieng, Rowe, Paul, Doughty, Arthur, Finney, Walker, Morrison, Wright, Eze, Chair Sub Not Used: Hudnott Apart from the likes of Ravel Morrison and Michael Doughty, the starting line-up also included a big No.9 trialist, Andre Wright. In the opening minutes QPR had a big shout for a penalty when their defender appeared to knock the ball away with his arm but Mr. Kelly wasn’t interested! Rangers took the lead after 11 minutes when Eze laid … Continue reading

Derby County (1) – QPR (0) – “We’ll go back and Start again. We’ll go back to the Basics I Want”

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha, Perch, Furlong, (Sylla), Hall, Wszolek (Goss), Manning, Freeman, Smith, Washington (Ngbakoto) Subs Not Used: Ingram, Robinson, Petrasso Attendance: 27,690 (including 563 R’s fans) The talk at half-time was of the tactics being wrong, our midfield therefore being over-run and us defending too deep. So if us mere supporters could recognise what was wrong why couldn’t Ollie, Birch and Fleming? Derby were there for the taking as they have been so poor recently. Their fans celebrated like … Continue reading

QPR (5) – Rotherham United (1) – “Let’s Hope we can get a Group of Players who believe they can Win on a Regular Basis”

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha, Lynch, Furlong, Hall, Freeman (Morrison), Luongo (Goss), Ngbakoto, Smith (Washington), Sylla Subs Not Used: Ingram, Manning, Wszolek, Mackie Attendance: 13,383 (including 262 Rotherham fans) Rotherham moved a step closer to Championship relegation as QPR inflicted a 12th straight away defeat. The Millers are now 24 points adrift of safety – the exact number left to play for – but a goal difference of -54 has all but sealed their fate. Matt Smith lashed in after 5 … Continue reading

QPR (2) – Barnsley (1) – ‘Nice One Sylla, Nice One Son, Nice One Sylla, Let’s Have Another One’

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha, Hall, Perch (Furlong), Freeman, Luongo, Manning, Wszolek (Washington), Ngbakoto (Morrison), Sylla Subs Not Used: Ingram, Goss, Doughty, Smith Attendance: 11,635 (including 526 Barnsley fans) Queen’s Park Rangers made it four wins in five Championship games with a clinical victory over Barnsley. QPR’s top scorer Idrissa Sylla gave the hosts the lead early on, touching in Yeni Ngbakoto’s cross. James Perch struck the crossbar, but Barnsley went close through Adam Armstrong and Marley Watkins. Barnsley’s Angus MacDonald … Continue reading

QPR (2) – Cardiff City (1) – Rangers fight back from 1-0 down on the 50th Anniversary of Winning the League Cup

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha, Lynch, Perch, Hall, Luongo (Morrison), Goss (Ngbakoto), Mackie (Wszolek), Smith, Washington Subs Not Used: Ingram, Furlong, Manning, Sylla Attendance: 15,103 (including 1,852 visitors) Substitute Yeni Ngbakoto created one goal and scored another as QPR came from behind to beat Cardiff City and ruin Bluebirds manager Neil Warnock’s return to Loftus Road. Sol Bamba’s header just before the interval put the Welsh side ahead. But Rangers levelled when Ngbakoto smashed the ball in after a fine team … Continue reading

QPR (2) – Wigan Athletic (1) – “We got an Ugly Win but the Character has come & you can see that the Lads are Growing”

Posted on by Site Admin

Team: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha, Lynch, Furlong, Hall (LuaLua), Wszolek, Manning, Freeman, Washington (Ngbakoto), Smith (Sylla) Subs Not Used: Ingram, Perch, Luongo, Mackie Attendance: 12,101 (including 326 Wigan fans) I felt we at last have a team that will build and work as one. The fact that Conor Washington and Matt Smith are scoring puts to bed the whole issue of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and getting more time. It was as I said, then and now, the right thing to do. … Continue reading

QPR U23 (2) – Cardiff City U23 (0)

Posted on by Steve Russell

U23 Professional Development League Team: Dieng, Petrasso, Robinson, Finney, Wallen (Chair), Paul, Bowler (Clarke), Rowe, Oteh, Eze, Hamalainen (Williams) Sub Not Used: Herdman The first batch of team sheets included the Charlton Athletic line-up for some reason, but the correct player’s details were distributed soon after. Captain for the day was No.4 Josh Wallen, and it was good to see that Jack Robinson was in the starting line-up. No Reece Grego-Cox unfortunately, but in his place at centre-forward was a … Continue reading

QPR U23 (2) – Charlton Athletic U23 (2) – Two More for Reece…

Posted on by Steve Russell

U23 Professional Development League Team: Dieng, Barzey (Springer-Downes), Williams (Rowe), Wallen, Arthur, Paul, Crichlow, Morrison, Grego-Cox (Clarke), Eze, Petrasso Sub Not Used: Herdman The visitors were awarded a penalty after something like ten seconds whilst I was still preparing my notes! I was informed that Mr Buonassisi had pointed to the spot seemingly because one of our defenders had run across a Charlton player (who didn’t go down) in the box! The Addicks captain, Mikhail Kennedy, made no mistake giving … Continue reading

QPR (1) – Burton Albion (2) – ‘Easy to Dig Out the Players, but for me, Ollie Cost us the Game’

Posted on by Steve Russell

Team: Smithies, Bidwell (Mackie), Onuoha, Lynch, Furlong, Hall (Washington), Wszolek, Doughty (Manning), Luongo, LuaLua, Sylla Subs Not Used: Ingram, Perch, Shodipo, Eze Attendance: 12,116 (including 212 Burton fans) Sylla’s attitude stunk on Saturday. No movement, zilch hold-up play and when he won any headers they went straight to the opposition! How can he go from being superb at Reading, to poor against Fulham and then dreadful on Saturday??? I think Ollie’s selection was wrong before kick-off and it didn’t improve … Continue reading
