  1. Taarabt takes easy route to stay in the top flight

    Sean Smith

    He allegedly took the bus home when subbed at half-time from Craven Cottage in QPR's first season in the Premier League. So Adel Taarabt will at least know how to get home from his new workplace* if his car ever breaks down, as Fulham look set to ...

  2. Redknapp's negativity mars positive QPR performance

    Sean Smith

    A good performance, a hurdle overcome, a hoodoo beaten, but still the story is the players that the club is intent on offloading. "This is the toughest job in football and I've never been at a club where so many people are difficult," QPR manager ...

  3. Taarabt could be marooned at QPR as revolving door continues

    Sean Smith

    "What is to become of Adel Taarabt? It has been well documented that the Moroccan midfielder has not been training for the Hoops this preseason as he wants out of the club -- hopefully to one of the more prestigious clubs in Europe. Unfortunate...

  4. Crouch's long shadow hangs over Redknapp's summer transfer policy...

    Sean Smith

    The loss of Jay Bothroyd, who had his contract with QPR terminated by mutual consent this week, is no great shakes, but it does mean we have to once again take a deeper look at Harry Redknapp's striker policy. Already out of the door this summer i...

  5. Wantaway Taarabt may be forced to stay at QPR

    Sean Smith

    Forget about Gareth Bale, or 'man-biter' Luis Suarez -- or even that little Brazilian joining Barcelona next season who looks like he has stepped out of One Dimension, but probably isn't as good as Lionel Messi -- the most divisive transfer of the su...

  6. Painful season ends with unsurprising whimper

    Sean Smith

    Thank goodness to Mary that's over. The season from hell slips into the past with a whimper against Liverpool, followed by some industrious defending and ending in a damp squib. Liverpool scored early to win 1-0, and looked like building up a cric...

  7. Youngsters not the solution to QPR's woes -- yet

    Sean Smith

    There has been a lot of clamour from frustrated QPR fans to "play the kids" for this, the last game for the club in the Premier League. Harry Redknapp rightly poured cold water on that bad idea -- even though we have a young side currently at U18 ...

  8. Harry's assessment too harsh and not best policy for QPR

    Sean Smith

    "That [QPR] team wouldn't finish in the top half of the Championship next year, that's the facts." So said Harry Redknapp two Saturdays ago in the wake of another home defeat, this time a 1-0 reversal against an Arsenal side that have won eight of...

  9. Small changes on pitch give hope of new QPR future

    Sean Smith

    Let's start with the most important aspect of Saturday's late afternoon 1-0 defeat at home to Arsenal - the team sheet. QPR manager Harry Redknapp has been quite clear that he is not going to field anyone who he feels is not good enough to play fo...

  10. QPR stalemate confirms inevitable relegation

    Sean Smith

    In the end, nobody's heart was in it. The 0-0 draw that sent both Reading and QPR down to the Championship was, as the scoreline suggests, bereft of any excitement, short on goalmouth action, and predictably a long way short of Premier League stan...

  11. Another shower as QPR slip closer to abyss

    Sean Smith

    So, once more QPR contrive to convince the world that any relegation from the Premier League is well deserved with a 2-0 defeat at home to a Stoke in such poor form that they have only beaten the bottom two in the last 14 games. - Match report: QP...

  12. Spirit of 2003-04 offers QPR's path to redemption

    Sean Smith

    In a fit of maudlin -- exacerbated by Sunderland's 3-0 victory at Newcastle -- I watched the video of QPR's League One promotion season of 2003-04 Sunday night. I am not entirely sure I know what I was looking for -- whether it was the comfort of ...

  13. Massive Everton match another mission impossible

    Sean Smith

    Harry Redknapp believes that the away game against Everton on Saturday is "massive". I think he means the points gap between QPR before -- and probably after the trip to Goodison Park -- is massive. - Redknapp hits 'low' point To win or to g...

  14. From joy to despair as relegation sinks in

    Sean Smith

    And so there it is - the end is nigh. That QPR should be scuppered in their bid to beat the Teflon team from the North in Sunday's 1-1 draw hurts most, as it was a reckless challenge that was probably the final nail in the coffin. Not dissimilar i...

  15. Redknapp to blame for horrible half

    Sean Smith

    So, I guess that must be it... Surely that's it by now? A poor, poor first half performance at Craven Cottage against Fulham on Monday night -- perhaps the worst half of football by a QPR side in a real shower of a season -- was enough to ensure t...

  16. Villa win a blow but not the end of the world for QPR

    Sean Smith

    The problem with leaving things until the end of the season, is that while QPR play teams that they are capable of beating, often the opponents are just one or two wins away from salvation and fighting for their lives themselves. - Hughes: Villa w...
