Mack The Knife...
Ipswich 0-3 QPR
16 points, three points clear at the top of the league, 17 goals scored, two against and a plus 15 goal difference!! That will certainly do me, as Rangers dream start to the season continued with a well deserved 3-0 win at Portman Road...
Bit of a joint effort this one tonight, as work commitments kept me away from the game tonight, but Lee and Sam made the trip to represent LH ( I think that was all, I may be wrong) and Lee and I decided that this report will be compiled of various texts sent to me before, during and after the game.
The first message indicated that Lee wasn't having the best of journeys but arrived just in time and informed me of a good start being made from the R's. Instead of keep repeating - the next text and the next text etc, I will just publish the transcript as it happened...
19.56 - good first ten minutes, got here just in time! Walker looking good so far and the R's fans are in great voice
20.01 - 1st sub of the match - lino off, 4th official on
20.18 - 1-0 Mackie, goal similar to the one at Derby, u F**kin beauty!! Well deserved
20.25 - Faurlin off injured - Buz on
20.30 - 2-0 Mackie! Break away from an Ipswich corner and Mackie ran from the halfway line, all the way to he edge of the box unchallenged and put in the corner, beauty!
21.19 - 3-0! Helguson peno!! Buz scored a great goal as the peno was given! Living the dream
21.20 - I'm moist - note, this was a reply to a text of mine suggesting that we were, let's just say, a bit over excited!!
and the summary - 21.49 - the summary - Two fantastic Mackie goals in the 1st half, went in at half time with a deserved lead. 2nd half, Ipswich started well, but we battled through a sticky 1st 15 minutes and then got a third and could have killed the game off good and proper. Great performances from Derry and Walker, but the man of the match is JAMIE MACKIE once again!
QPR: Kenny, Hill, Derry, Taarabt (Leigertwood 60), Helguson, Faurlin (Buzsaky 37), Mackie (Smith 80), Gorkss, Walker, Connolly, Ephraim. Subs: Cerny, Agyemang, German, Parker.
I must admit that I am just a little bit jealous of Lee, Sam and the 976 R's fans at Ipswich tonight who sang their hearts out throughout and is a great midweek following for a wet and miserable Tuesday night. Huge credit to each and every one of you!!
Thanks to Lee for the updates and safe journey home Lee and Sam!!
