    One of the senior QPR defenders, can’t remember his name, was on the radio talking about this about 6 months ago

    He said the defenders and paddy Kenny hadn’t been made aware they were safe as they were furthest from the bench. And when the ball hit the net they thought they were down

    Didn’t Nedum do an interview recently where he realised he’d given the throw in straight back to City and when we scored he felt like he thought he had personally relegated QPR ?

    I'll never forget that 4 seconds of undiluted hatred for SWP when he took that ball into our half.

    I remember cursing Nasri for letting the ball run out when it was obvious it came off one of our players.

    I then spent the next 20 secs asking every man and his dog around me if they knew the Utd score.

    I remember someone shouting they’ve won 1-0 just as De Jong carried it forward and feeling absolutely gutted, to the point of beginning to cry.

    When I saw the North Stand go up celebrating, I just went into delirium.

    I was that emotional because of being so upset to happy within seconds that I just sobbed.

    I’ve never cried like that in my adult life.

    Just his perspective on the greatest moment in pl history, not to much to look into it, he does appear to be right though, a team looking to close the game or spoil the party wouldn't just punt ball into opposition half from the kick off.

    Have anyone ever seen this tactic before or after where team needing to score is just gifted the possession from kick of?

    Nedum ran half the length of the pitch to take the throw in he almost threw it to joeleon, he was also out of position for the goal Once a blue

    They didn't need to score. A draw would have kept them up no matter what Bolton did. Stoke effectively relegated Bolton and our game from QPR perspective was meaningless. Although of course they didnt know that at the time.
