Square it Tommy 11:31 - Nov 24 with 5440 viewsTheChef

I know we all go on about it like it was some mythical virtual open goal that would have won us the play off final - but does anyone have any video evidence of it?

I've looked at the various highlights clips on YouTube, but none of them include it.

Did it ever actually exist??

Oh it existed alright, just not for the one most important person in the stadium!

We were staring straight down at it, front row second tier.

Good run if I remember it properly, ended with my head in my hands.

Remember it well - but can't recall when in the game it was - was it 89th minute or 2nd period of extra time just before the calamity?

It was a great run, but Furlong (obvs) and I think Gallen too (?) were right there....

Yes it was a great run and he then went for glory.

On the plus side it meant we could just about escape alive from the stadium.

In a minority of one, but I had no problem with him shooting from there. I think most players would have done the same (especially most players at that level). Was a shame, but, you know, in the grand scheme of things not the worst decision a QPR player has ever made.

Bare bones.

You're right most players would have shot. At the end of a run like that I reckon 9/10 shoot.

To be honest, I'm grateful to Tommy that I am still alive today.

It wasn't too bad an idea to shoot, but as I recall, Andy Thomas and Paul Furlong had positioned themselves perfectly ready to tap in the squared pass.

We were on that side by the goal and he should have squared it, but as others say it was also a goalscoring chance.

I don't think it would have been fun getting away after. I remember being locked in at Ninian after we won there. (was it Langers?)

I have no problem generally with a player having a shot but from the corner of the six yard box with 2 team mates square for an easy tap in and even more so a totally left footed player with his foot normally only used for standing upon then it's a no from me

Yeah that was fun in the car park afterwards with Cardiff fans picking off any Rs fan they could find.

Best bit of fun was after the 0-0 FA cup 3rd round game at Ninian in 1990.

And if I remember rightly, didn't one of theirs run up the pitch giving it large to the Loft after we beat them in the replay.

Yes It was Langley with the late winner.
One of the most wildly celebrated goals I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
What a day.
But yes, I also remember standing on that terrace being locked in after the match and looking across that car park to our left and seeing all the menacing looking Cardiff fans hanging around. Thankfully we kept our hands down, avoided all eye contact and nothing happened, but I think that walk back to the car was one of the most frightening experiences I've had following QPR.
Cardiff was a very unpleasant place to go & watch football back then. Still had people coming up to us starting to start trouble after that playoff match. And they fvcking won that one!! Had my 60 year old Dad with me and nobheads still trying to kick off FFS.

was on his weaker foot though after cutting inside and he was fcked, should have passed it but would have been an unbelievable goal if it had come off

Damn Rotherham equalised right on half time v Leeds.

Anyway I don't get this just as well we lost to get out alive comments. Many said the same after City. I can't understand why people would travel hundreds of miles knowing that if we win the locals will go mental so just as well we lost attitudes to get home in one piece. It begs the question why anyone would go if they think they will come to harm. It sounds like people are glad we lost which goes against my logic.

So when we play Coventry in the final game, which could be a relegation decider with the loser going down, am I to understand you will all secretly hope we lose to get out of the stadium alive? Best stay at home if you think we might win and Cov fans will turn into wild beasts ready to savage you.

Neither Coventry at the present time, or Man City in 2012 had the reputation for violence that Cardiff had and deserved in the early 2000s.

But even so, no of course I’m not glad we lost. That would be ridiculous. That playoff final still hurts now. Proper QPR team with proper QPR players. The following season, Sheffield Wednesday away & the bus parade / pissup especially was brilliant. But I’d have given up all that to have won at the Millenium stadium.

Did he not have a nickname of the Chocolate One?

He loved himself so much that if he were a chocolate, he would eat himself.

Or words to that affect?

Flew in from Bahrain for that game, spent 2 nights at the Celtic Manor - yup that night of the fire alarm, me, wife & another 2 mates in the car park 03.15 with the whole QPR squad.

After the game, back to the hotel - kicked off in the bar, with the hotel staff/Management, crazy couple of days. Hate Cardiff & all who ride in her. C**ts.

Sam Hamman, what a 24 carat ....
