We Only Need 10 Men...
QPR 1-0 Birmingham
Ten-man QPR produced a memorable display after a stunning 1-0 win over Birmingham City, with a 25 yard screamer from Samuel Di Carmine on 54 minutes.
I must apologise for the the extreme lateness of following up with this report, but unfortunately, I have had technical issues way beyond my control, which are still yet to be resolved, but I will plod on the best I can for now. Normal service will be resumed very soon.
Well by now, I guess we have all read the papers, seen the goal on TV, the highlights on QPR world etc and those who were there, have probably thawed out by now. So, with that in mind, I won't give you my usual ramblings, except to say, that this game really did have everything - good football, a stunning goal, an abysmal referee, controversy and freak weather. But above all else, this was Rangers best performance of the season so far, fantastic! Fantastic is also a word that could be used to describe the Loftus Road crowd on the night, also. The only sour point of course, was Mikele Liegertwood's harsh red card. Incidentally, the appeal today was rejected and Mikele now faces a 4 match ban! But remember, referee Mr Attwell can do no wrong and he let most of the Birmingham Premier League prima donnas dictate to him all night long - which made the result even sweeter!!
QPR: Cerny, Stewart, Hall, Leigertwood, Blackstock (Buzsaky 69), Rowlands, Connolly, Cook (Mahon 46), Tomassi, Ledesma, Di Carmine (Ephraim 74). Subs: Cole, Parejo.
Lofty's Man of the Match - Cerny, Stewart and Tomassi were all awesome for QPR, but the pride, the heart, the passion, the commitment and desire shown by the team on Tuesday night, can only mean that this particular award goes to - Queens Park Rangers F.C.
