I seem to remember a certain Harry Redknapp saying before the game that QPR were under no pressure, and that was all on our lads. Seems our lads responded to it and stepped up a gear to cope with it.
Quotes from the Daily Mail.
Quite funny really as he nows describes Gabby Agbonlahor’s goal on the stroke of half time as knocking his pressureless QPR ‘for six’.
Don’t normally bother with the opposition manager’s ranting, but given ‘appy ‘arry so likes us, I will.
‘If we had come in 4-0 up half time it would have been about right wouldn’t it? It was so one sided. But they got a lift from the equaliser after being absolutely awful first half and probably couldn’t believe their luck. That goal knocked us for six.’
Just got to add this in as it’s even more comical.

“I lost Bobby (Zamora) at half time and that was a real blow for us. When he came off, I thought (t)it would give us a problem. We never had that focal point to hold the ball up. Rob Green was also ill and had to go home this morning.”
Erm…Zamora left at half time, AFTER we had already equalised.
When did QPR score, 23 minutes. Who did we lose on 20 minutes, meaning the replacement had to get up to speed with the game and it was Bennett who unfortunately played the sloppy pass for their goal and who wasn’t quick enough to get the block in on Jenas. (fair do’s his assist for Weimann’s goal balanced that out!).
But talk about scraping the barrell for excuses.
You lost, man up. Who you going to blame next, your dog? Maybe not.
