Speechless. Cannot believe what I have just witnessed. JB is such a tool. Less said the better but we were magnificant. Would have been cruel on City and far too good for Utd. Stoke did what we needed them to do so enough said. Premiership next season, job done. Bit of a clearout (yes Joey!) and lets do better next season. UuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrRRRRSSSSSS!!

Tevez should have sent 0ff as well & Barton should now better to retaliate & then go quickly & quietly (Derry @ Man U)once he got the red.

Mission accomplished though & we would all have settled for that at the start of the season. Perhaps some justice though over the disallowed "goal" @ Bolton?

Very interesting decisions for Mark Hughes now in re-shaping the squad. Onwards & Upwards...

thanks to all @ LFW for all the great articles this season

It's quite ironic that City won the game in five minutes of 'Fergie time' - there was no way that five minutes should have been added on at the end.

That said it was an immense display by the 10 R's - that rearguard action for the last 25 minutes of normal time was the best i've seen, even topped England's vs Argentine in France 1998. Such is the fickle nature of football and being a supporter, I'm totally elated we're staying up but feel slightly robbed we didn't at least get the draw we deserved. They were all superb.

At this stage i have 4 hopes for next season:

- that Barton has played his last match for QPR - what a tool!
- we get the 'old' club crest back and wider hoops on the shirts and a decent awaty kit.
- LFW continues to flourish
- we don't have to endure something like this again.

Tonight we celebrate - U R'sssssss!!

So proud of my beloved QPR. I want Jamie Mackie's baby!!! and I'm a guy!!! lol. Yes, we are staying up but sorry, something needs to be done about Barton. He played so well before he got sent off but then goes and loses his head AGAIN!!! Would like to know what Mark Hughes is going to do about him in the closed season. But again, so proud of QPR today - 10 heroes..because I'm leaving out Barton.
COME ON UUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Thanks Clive, a memorable season for all sorts of reasons. Great performance today, so close to getting something with 10 men. All came right in the end! As for JB I think we may be stuck with him as he has a contract and who else is going to take him?
What a goalscorer Cisse is and I think Mackie shut his eyes and sent Hart the wrong way! Sorry that Adel didn't get on the pitch and hope he stays next year, also, need to sign Diakite and Taiwo.

We are staying UP!

Agree with your points apart from the hoops, quite like them as they are. And it would be great to revert to the old Hammersmith badge with the three horseshoes from the late sixties/early seventies. We've got to get rid of our silly, generic crest with Flavios hair in the middle of it

Totally drained after today. F*ck the Euros, roll on next season!

You R's!!!!!

Wow, can't believe it. Amazing that we defended so well and to be leading 2-1, I believe the same when we played Man City at home and if I remember correctly they got 2 late goals that day too. We deserved to get something out of both City games as they all played great. I don't even know what happened with JB, Tevez just fell over from what I could see (not seen any highlights so will watch MOTD tonight and watch in more detail there). Hardly worth a red though, but that is our luck though. He was wrong to act up like he usually does after he got the red though.

Both great goals from Cisse and Mackie, we weren't going to get many chances at Etihad and they took the chances well.

Anyone seen Tony Fernandes' interview on BBC, what announcement is he going to give? hopefully new training ground? and then we can finally work on that damn passing!!
new stadium plans?

Not sure how many away fans went, but well done to them, could hear them chanting.

Thanks LFW for great articles.

Looking forward to summer and next season. Get rid of the deadwood and welcome back Faurlin and hopefully some new faces. Diakite needs to be signed.

Cmon you R's.

Watched it all happen on Sky and we were magnificent. I was raging but not surprised that Sky didnt once show our fans or players after the match finished we were totally ignored. They wont ignore us next season though I think we will now go from strength to strength. Hopefully Joey Barton will get a 36 match ban for next season. I am so proud of the boys even though I watched most of the game through my fingers, ten games ago we were staring at the Championship Hughes is a real leader and I cannot wait for next season.

Great display, great effort and wonderful that we are staying up.

Let's not all become Alan Shearer (self confessed Barton hater)Barton tangled with Tevez, the linesman couldn’t see anything other than Barton clumping him (why?) from that point on Barton feels aggrieved and loses his head.
If Tevez had thrown a punch at me I would clump the little shit.
Sad that he couldn't keep his composure but he was off from the moment that Tevez fell down clutching his throat.

"36 Match bans" and "something needs to be done about Barton" ???????? Rubbish!
He has been sent off twice for us, both times after being assaulted (unnoticed) by the officials and both times cost or potentially cost us the match but he is hardly the uncontrollable nutter that he is made out to be, or appeared to be in the past.

MOTD: Yohan Cabaye has apologised for his part in getting Cahill sent off, so Mr Lineker and friends ignore the incident, which was violent conduct.
Had Tevez said sorry I very much doubt that they would have ignored the Barton red card.

Congratulations to all concerned. So proud of Queens Park Rangers FC tonight and wasn't it great to see last season's heroes play a vital role in keeping us in the EPL. Had a gut feeling that Cisse's late goal last week would ulitmately save us and so it proved. Looking forward to next season already.

All credit to the ironclad defense! Finally played like they did at home, allowing no time or space. In a strange way I think Our Joey's brain cramp may have stiffened their resolve. And thank you Stoke!!!!!

How did we get away with that ! Ten games from the end of the season and we were cactus. Half time at City and we were down. Proud as punch to be an R's supporter and loads of opposition fans I know seemed genuinely happy we avoided the drop. J.B.....well the penny will never drop in his scon, what a dopey SOB ! Leave it up to Hughes to sort him out once and for all. Now for a real squad sort out and a new era of achievement. Cant wait for t all to begin again in August. U Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr's

Tremendous performance and they deserved to get something out of it. Shame that it relied on Bolton's failure.

As for next season, I cannot see how they can build a team to accommodate Barton. There is no point having a key player who jeopardises the team in a game, followed by the resulting 3 game bans. A midfield of Traore, Faurlin, Derry and Diakite has to be better. Barton to see out his contract on loan?

Thanks Clive and the LFW team for all your work. It really keeps me in touch for the the games I cannot be at!

What a game, I guess the result was what we anticipated congratulations to those who represented QPR with such a big effort . Clint Hill and Jamie Mackie my joint MOM but really with one disappointing exception i think they all did us proud.
My nerves need a summer break but looking forward to next season already.
City deserved their title and we deserved to stay up, justice all round.

Brilliant atmosphere. Nail biting entertainment. Drama to the last. And we survive on the back of a result elsewhere. Who wrote the script?
Congratulations to city. The best side won the league. Many shook our hands on the way out. Not sure if that would have happened if the whistle had gone at 2-2.
1 sour note was Barton. Sure, Tevez started it, but no excuse for the reaction.4 game ban for 2nd red card of the season. Another ban for the assault on Ager and another for nutting Kompany. He could and should miss half the season. Can qpr dismiss him for gross misconduct?

Doughnut added 13:36 - May 14

Mackie has to be Player of the season for me. Through thick and thin (and there's been a lot of thin!) he's been up for it. Much as I'm not a JB fan, he has been sent off no more than Cisse, and both times with massive provocation and outrageous over-reaction on the part of Tevez. As for the kick after - well if you're going to be sent off for nothing, might as well make it worthwhile. Can't believe I defended JB - what a weird weekend. Total congratulations to all the team is in order though.

QPR owner Tony Fernandes stated after the end of the final game of the season that he believed his team "played like lions" against Man City. Well a much earlier generation of soldiers were believed to be lions led by donkeys, a phrase popularly used to describe the British infantry of World War 1 and a phrase used to condemn the generals who commanded them.

So no prizes for guessing who our donkey was, during a complete moment of madness! He is a very lucky guy; his 5 minutes of indiscipline, potentially coupled with an away win for Bolton and things could have got very ugly outside of the players entrance from those of us who had paid out our hard earned cash to support the team, then seeing it all go down the pan. Not that I would condone any repeat of the unfortunate events at Euston station following the defeat at Bolton. So JB appears to be is upset with some of the views of the presenters on MOTD, maybe it’s best he did not hear some of the comments made on the terraces as we watched him leave the pitch, thinking that it was the final nail in the coffin for the end of the Premiership for the R’s. The only thing I have not heard from our captain, is that he thinks he can walk on water! In any other job he would be out on your ear for gross misconduct.

But what a game and expreriencing a very strange set of emotions during and after the game, what a cool finish from Cisse, witnessing a tremendous backs-to-wall display following Mackie’s goal, hearing the half-time score from the Britannia stadium, a feeling of disappointment that we could not hold for a great away win, hoping Ashley Young would not collect a Premiership winners medal, and at the final whistle just relieved that both sets of supporters got the end result they needed.

At the start of the year when studying the final games of the season, things looked dire, but after the recent run of home wins it was great to be in a position where our team could influence our own survival on the last game of the season. Well done the 10 + subs, a tremendous effort.

Can only hope that during the next three months; prior to the start of next season Mark Hughes will have much more time, than was given to NW, to be able to bring in players who will strengthen the team and take us on the next step of the journey. Give me mid table security as a minimum. I don’t think that the old ticker could take much more; then again, it wouldn’t be QPR would it!

A big thanks to you Clive, for maintaining your spirits during this tough season and providing us with many great match reports, detailing the highs, and too many lows throughout. I assume you may have to buy another new fag packet to write your reports for next season, as the existing one must be looking a little worse for wear. Keep up the good work.
