God Save Queens Park Rangers, The Most Fun Bad Team In The EPL

QPR aren't very good. In fact, they're quite terrible. They have the Premier League's second-worst points-per-game rate, have given up by far the most goals, and look generally incompetent performing many of the duties usually required of an EPL-quality club. But goddammit if they aren't the most entertaining side… » 4/08/15 2:33pm 4/08/15 2:33pm

Matt Phillips Scores 45-Yard Wonder Goal

QPR has only won one game in their last 12 across all competitions and it looks likely that they will be relegated, but they can take some measure of solace in scoring a strong goal of the year contender. Down 0-3 to a Crystal Palace side resurgent under Alan Pardew, Matt Phillips's belter spectacularly beat keeper… » 3/14/15 12:22pm 3/14/15 12:22pm

Premier League Manager Resigns Because His Knee Hurts

The good ol', free-wheelin', tactics-ignorin', loveable Harry Redknapp is in pain. Not, he'd have us believe, because of his struggling QPR team's lackluster Premier League performances, or the because his owner laughed off the prospect of adding any bodies in the newly-closed transfer window while subtweeting… » 2/03/15 6:33pm 2/03/15 6:33pm

The English FA can't really be this uptight, can they? Today, the Premier League's governing body has announced that it has charged QPR's Rio Ferdinand with misconduct for a Tweet of his, without mentioning the specific one. It appears that it is this little bit of humor, sent to a bantering Mancunian: » 10/14/14 1:59pm 10/14/14 1:59pm

Soccer's Faulty New Money Rule Hurts The Clubs It Was Meant To Protect

Queens Park Rangers are the latest victim of Financial Fair Play, the laudably-aimed yet poorly calibrated rules which are in theory meant to keep teams solvent but in practice keep them from sensibly spending to improve their position, or even from spending money they actually have. Yesterday, English Football League… » 9/10/14 2:56pm 9/10/14 2:56pm

Goalkeeper Blows Game With Enormous Boner In Added Time

Poor Dimitrios Konstantopoulos. It's bad enough the Middlesbrough goalkeeper cost his team a point today against QPR by allowing a goal in the 94th minute, but it's how he did it—by completely whiffing on a clearance and allowing Bobby Zamora the chance to walk in a goal—that is utterly embarrassing and thus ripe for… » 3/22/14 9:12pm 3/22/14 9:12pm

Reconstructing The Most Exciting Day In The History Of Soccer (And…

The final day of the 2011 MLB regular season enchanted us with its insanity; its events became a video game montage and inspired its own tag here on Deadspin. That day, however, only determined which teams would gain entry to the playoffs. By comparison, Sunday's final day of the English Premier League was Game… » 5/16/12 4:36pm 5/16/12 4:36pm
