Proper Football fans?

Proper Football fans?

Proper Football Fans? I attended my first football match when I was four years old: Stoke City vs. Cambridge United. I didn't leave the game early and I have sworn to myself over the years that I never would. Last weekend however, I did, for the first time, leave a football game early. Not five or even ten minutes early but a whole half an hour early after watching my team - I had spent £90 on tickets and travel …

Karma | QPR vs. Aston Villa | Match Report

Being a QPR fan is never boring. There is always controversy and back-page headlines to read about when it comes to QPR. Michael Oliver made sure of it this week and assure that life wasn't boring at Loftus Road by providing plenty of controversy. He had an (and I hate to say it, as a fellow referee) abysmal game in front of the Sky cameras. I know 'expert' pundits such as Robbie Savage and Alan Shearer believed Oliver had a good …
Joey Barton Doesn't 'Bottle' It

Joey Barton Doesn't 'Bottle' It

Joey Barton hit back at his critics on Saturday with a stunning performance against Wolves. He passed well, tackled well, ran the game in the middle and even grabbed a scuffed goal. It was nearly a perfect game for the ex-Newcastle and Manchester City player, but it wouldn't be Joey Barton if there was no controversy to talk about. After receiving a horrific tackle from 'Kelvin' Henry near the final whistle, with the linesman metres away and for some reason …
QPR v Newcastle | Very one sided game

QPR v Newcastle | Very one sided game

QPR started their new era in splendid form, in front of the television cameras on Monday night. Six debutants were on show in front of an almost full Loftus Road crowd. It was an extremely encouraging performance for Neil Warnock and showed fans that if this type of football continues, there is no chance of QPR being relegated. Shaun Wright-Phillips was outstanding and if performances like this continue, Fabio Capello will have to take note and consider his return to …

QPR | Lady Luck Lifts Latics

It has been another controversial week at QPR. Neil Warnock suggested that the Carling Cup is of no interest to Premier League clubs. This comment after a despicably poor performance against League One's Rochdale angered fans who had paid £15 to watch; in hindsight a game Warnock never intended to win. The mood of the fans lifted, however when on Friday the most unlikely of signings; Joey Barton joined for free on a suspected £60-80,000 a week salary; this almost …
Well, well, well, QPR defy

Well, well, well, QPR defy "expert" pundits

Matt Le Tissier spent 90 minutes on Saturday professing the 'fact' that Queens Park Rangers were 'in for a hiding' and that they were no threat to Premier League regulars, Everton. After Everton failed to take advantage of their early dominance, a clever move from QPR set up Tommy Smith from 12 yards and he proved why he should play in his preferred centre-forward position when he cooly bent the ball around the outstretched arms of Tim Howard, into the …
QPR | 'Dyer' wake up call

QPR | 'Dyer' wake up call

It takes a second in football for euphoria to suddenly become anguish and doubt. Well on Saturday 13 August 2011 after three minutes and one disallowed goal, QPR lost their most controversial 'free' signing of the summer to a suspected broken foot. After weeks of speculation as to whether Warnock had signed a 'Dyer' flop or had he pulled off bargain of the summer? Unfortunately, it was the former and QPR fans were forced to laugh rather than cry at …
