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 v Wigan likely to be low scoring game

QPR v Wigan likely to be low scoring game

Generally, people overreact. They fail to analyse things as a whole, and make rash judgements based on what they have just witnessed, experienced or heard that reinforces their existing values or beliefs. A magnificent example of this is watching a televised football match with two football fans – one who supports team A, the other team B. They watch the same broadcast, listen to the same commentary but will react very differently to the referee’s decisions. Even referees fail to …

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 …

I was going to write this blog and say all the usual thing about how we shouldn’t get carried away and all that buisness but after a brilliant 4-0, win for Bolton, i'm just going to talk about the positives and how it made my weekend. After months of doing nothing this summer except bathe in the wonderful weather we have had (yea i've done nothing this summer) the start of the season began this saturday for us. A potentially tricky …
Who other than Adel? QPR's Dilemma

Who other than Adel? QPR's Dilemma

[caption id="attachment_999" align="alignright" width="220" caption="Adel Taarabt - Star Player"][/caption] It seemed for almost the entire summer and for weeks before that as Queens Park Rangers surged towards the Championship and more importantly the Premier League that Adel Taarabt would not be there to guide them into the unknown. The often fantastic but infuriating midfielder at times appeared to on his own destroy opponents with skills beyond the division he played in. However with the news of Taarabt’s departure seemingly put …
Is Taarabt worth £15million?

Is Taarabt worth £15million?

During Queens Park Rangers stunning performance in the Championship  last season in which they rarely left 1st place, there was one man who  despite  not claiming 'Player's' or 'Fans' Player of the Year, due to his attitude  and  antics, was awarded Football League Player of the Year and suddenly  rumours have been widely talked about from almost every 'major' club in the world.   After signing from Tottenham after 2 loan spells for a bargain £1million,  QPR seemed to have …
