The R's Are Staying Up!!!

QPR 1-0 Cardiff

Rangers secured their place in the Championship as Dexter Blackstock scored the only goal to beat Cardiff City in a nervy afternoon at Loftus Road. It was an eventful old day - filled with laughter, elation, tension, celebration and every other emotion you could think of. Other than the game and of course, the result, moments of note were the boys hammering the bookies yet again!!...and the appearance of the gay policeman that insisted on enforcing the rule that we couldn't drink our beer in the street! - and we were supposed to take this guy seriously???

Anyway, onto the game and you are going to get a different type of round up from me this time. Because it matters not if the game was good or bad, the only thing that mattered from getting the three points today is that..

Stand Up and Make Some Noise!

QPR: Camp, Bignot, Bolder, Rowlands (Smith 70), Lomas, Cook, Kanyuka, Stewart, Timoska, Nygaard, Blackstock (Furlong 83). Subs: Cole, Milanese, Bailey.

Lofty's Man of the Match - Excellent performances from Blackstock, Stewart, Kanyuka and Camp to name a few, but today, my award goes to Adam Bolder - what a great signing this was from John Gregory!?!

We are Staying Up!! I never doubted it, really I didn't!! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?? ;-)

    Good report as alway's Lofty, good job done by all the players and staff. However, amongst all the congratulations, we seem to have missed the one person who looks to have saved the season, young HOLLY, three wins in three home games what a record!

    This season has been a real emotional rollercoaster; one game I would think "Yeah, we'll be safe!" the next game "Oh no, we're doomed!"

    One thing that JG has instilled is the never say die spirit of the players - I can't think of too many occasions in the second half of the season where the players haven't given 100%. Some of the time we didn't get the rub of the green, but the players kept believing and kept going.

    Corp, my football predictions are a bit hit & miss, but definitely hats off to JG, I think all QPR fans will be toasting him tonight.

    Thanks Brian - Holly will be at the Stoke game to join in the party :-)

    Thanks PK - you are getting the hang of this comment thing now eh? Nice one mate :-)

    Thanks SB - I must just say that I backed JG from the start and we have all been rewarded. He has brought in some players that will die for the cause and installed that fighting spirit that has been lacking for so many years

    COME ON YOU R'ssssssssssss!!!
