Congratulations To QPR

Congratulations To QPR

Congratulations to QPR tonight. The London club thoroughly deserved their victory, as did their excellent away fans.

They sang from start to finish and had a ball down at Villa Park. I bet they are laughing all the way back to Shepherds Bush tonight at the arrogance shown by Villa who apparently only had to turn up to win - sadly no one told QPR that.

Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up, we were out-sung, out-gunned and even more depressing out-cupped (ok, that doesn't make sense but you know what I mean, out of the cup!)

Kudos to Dowie, his team and their away fans. No kudos to their boutique owner mind you, just shows the mettle of the greedy non footballing man who, if my information is right, wanted to keep the ticket price at £15 when Villa were wanting to give everyone a break and charge £10.

10 out of 10 for the hoops then, they did what I said in the interview on Vital QPR I feared, played as a team. On they march and for the second year in a row, out of the cup we crash to lower division opponents.

Its a sin to blow a relativley easy way into Europe like tis for the second year in a row.However we were going great in this competion in MoN first season in charge we were then spanked by Chelsea,Laursen did his knee and we blew up soon after.The rest during these weeks could be crucial,we need to win a bigger trophy than the Wortington Cup.

We aren't big enough or succesful enough at the moment to dismiss the league cup like that imho.

Even Dowie has said QPR didn't play that well, PMSL shows how bad we were. Well done QPR, always liked you since the days of Simon Barker in the centre of midfield for some reason. Hope you make a right run of it now. When you do, can you send a few letters to our team to let them know how much they should care on domestic cups please.

If we as a club can dismiss participation in the League/Carling Cup at this stage of our development, then I for one am a very worried supporter. Seems though as if not too many Villans are bothered, only 18,000 or so making the effort to attend. That is also a concern.

I'll add my congratulations to QPR. Why not? They were at least up for it, and what, 3,000 of them made the effort, taking time and spending hard earned money to travel, so Good Luck to them.

I have to agree with Fear. Congratulations to Rangers and their brilliant fans. How some people can dismiss this defeat because we have 'bigger fish to fry' is totally beyond me. Rangers were poor, we were awful and have just blown our best chance of winning something this season.

Well done QPR and their fans were great but come on, to say we were pore is a little sour we were all over them to be fair, all we needed was harewood to remember he gets paid to score, he blew it for us and most any striker in the prem would have at least grabbed a hat trick with the chances he blew. QPR were Very lucky but once again well done we might be gracious in defeat but they are gracious in victory too
