We Only Need 10 Men...
Norwich 0-1 QPR
Okay okay, so the title is a bit on the cheesy side, but QPR gained a fantastic victory at Carrow Road this evening. A Martin Rowlands free kick on 33 minutes was enough to seperate the two sides - in a game where Rangers played for over an hour with ten men following Matt Connolly's sending off on 28 minutes.
Well due to the pressures of work for PK and minor eye surgery being booked for myself this week, very selfishly if you ask me, neither of us could make the trip this evening. Luckily, the op went very smoothly and I was able to pay a visit to the gym. As I was leaving, I had a text from PK saying that the game was on BBC London Radio, so I eagerly switched on in the car, just in time to hear that Matthew Connolly had been sent off for a second yellow card.
Minutes later, my anger had turned to joy as Martin Rowlands gave the R's the lead from a thrice taken free kick - and after just seeing the goal on SSN, what a fine strike it was too! I returned home and spent the rest of the match trying to eat some dinner, which included more than one finger nail. I have often said that listening on the radio is much worse than being there and tonight was no exception. It was a huge relief when the referee finally blew the full time whistle on a great result and what seemed a thoroughly deserved three points. Rangers are back in fourth place as this wonderful start to the season continues.
QPR: Cerny, Delaney, Stewart, Mahon,Leigertwood, Blackstock (Agyemang 76), Rowlands, Ramage, Connolly, Cook (Gorkss 29), Ledesma (Buzsaky 81). Subs: Camp, Parejo.
The R's now take their great form away to one of Iain Dowie's former clubs, Coventry on Saturday and normal Lofty Heights service will be resumed. The only bad thing is, that if Rangers continue in this form, the prices will probabaly go up even more...
