QPR Snippets - New Year Greetings....Next: Blackpool...New Man in Press Office...Steve Burke...Southend Youth Crush QPR

To any Jewish readers of QPR Report: Shana Tova! Have a Good New Year- 5769!

Next Up: Blackpool at Loftus Road, Tomorrow.
- Blackpool with three ex-QPRs in their squad: Zesh Rehman, Danny Nardiello and never forget, Ian Evatt. Blackpool's Squad -- Blackpool's Results -- Leage Table: If Blackpool should win tomorrow (2 away wins, 1 draw, 1 loss), they'll go above QPR.
QPR have a great record against Blackpool, which of course means, oh-oh! Head to Head Results.
Memories: Tommy Hutchinson and Tony Green playing for Blackpool in the late 1960s: Great players....QPR pipping Blackpool on goal aggregate back in 1967/68 to gain promotion to the First Division. Rodney Marsh's hatrick in QPR's 6-1 win back in 1969 (Blackpool had the last laugh; they won promotion!). Clive Allen's four goals in QPR's FA Cup replay...Richard Langley's hatrick just before he left QPR...
QPR-Blackpool links: Besides Evatt, Nardiello and Rehman, David Bardsley, Trevor Sinclair, Danny Shittu, Clark Carlisle, John Burridge, and most recently, Kaspar Gorkss (which led to some a summer farce, bad blood between the two clubs and had Blackpool reporting QPR to the FA for making an illegal approach).
Last Encounter: March 2008 at Loftus Road which QPR won 3-2 before a crowd of 11,500. QPR: Camp, Mancienne, Connolly, Leigertwood, Delaney, Buzsaky (Lee 85), Hall, Rowlands (Rehman 90), Vine, Blackstock, Agyemang (Mahon 66). Subs Not Used: Pickens, Balanta. Goals: Buzsaky 11, Vine 40, Rowlands 47.

Press & Publications Manager - Ian Taylor:
New Media Manager - Paul Morrissey: QPR Staff List

- Former QPR Winger, Steve Burke Turns 48 - Born September 29, 1960.
Burke joined QPR in September 1979, signed by Tommy Docherty from Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest for 150,000 pounds, (before he made his League debut).
In his first season, Burke was a regular in the QPR team. But once Docherty left, under Venables and his successors, Burke made few appearances and went out on loan a couple of times. Burke was hower QPR's (one) substitute in the FA Cup Final replay "travesty" against Spurs and came on.
In September 1986, Burke joined Doncaster on a free transfer. Burke's Playing Career

- Southend Official Site U18'S KNOCK SEVEN PAST QPR
[Full Match report, compliments of Southend!] Southend United U18's 7 Queens Park Rangers U18's 1
Under-18s boss Ricky Duncan put his squad through their paces on their week off as they recorded a 7-1 friendly victory over a Queens Park Rangers Development XI at Boots & Laces.
Duncan fielded his more experienced scholars in the first half before taking a look at a younger, pacier side in the second period, including three trialists. One of the trio was Roland Benedict, the son of American actor and star of 'The A Team' Dirk Benedict. Benedict Jnr. appeared on the left-hand side of midfield, having previously appeared for Gillingham's reserve team, whilst his father watched on from the sidelines to add some celebrity to a sunny day in southeast Essex.
The opposition will bear little resemblance to the QPR outfit that line up against the Blues next Saturday in the Football League Youth Alliance Cup, but put up a determined fight during the opening stages of the encounter....
Southend United U18s: First half: Nathan McDonald; Ricky Byrne, Ronnie Jones, Ade Osifuwa, Duran Reynolds; Davis Abbey; Merrick James-Lewis, Medi Abalimba; Justin Hazell; Fredrik Ljungström, Craig Calver. Second half: Nathan McDonald; John Owinja, Merrick James-Lewis, Duran Reynolds, Joel Mitchell; Kyle Asante, Jamie Dennis, Luke [trialist], Roland Benedict; Harry Crawford, Marcus Milner. Goals: Calver 20, Ljungström 31, Mitchell 49, Crawford 60, 76, Asante 74, Dennis 81.
