I'm working on a video for my QPR Memories Youtube channel which will countdown the best 10 goals scored by Richard Langley and rather than me picking them as I have with players from the 70's, 80's and 90's so far I thought it might be interesting to open it up to QPR fans to vote for their favourites which will feature in an upcoming video. Below you should see a video of all of Richard Langleys goals for QPR and a link to vote for your favourite. The 2 penalties he scored are not included in the vote.
I try to stay off this board for a few hours after we lose, emotions are always high and tend to think in the cold light of day I can take a step back and try to give a reasonable response to a performance both good and bad but tonight honestly I don't know how I am going to sleep after seeing that Austin goal. That was a scandalous robbery by Stroud, not even close I can't get my head around what he thinks he's seen.
I don't care about how bad the penalties were, what we did well and badly in the other 95 minutes of that game, that one decision has killed me

Despite the result a marvelous away day in the sunshine. My sister lives down in Bournemouth (right next to the ground until recently) so we know the area well and had a nice few drinks in a beer garden all afternoon.
Quite bizarre trying to get into the ground with metal scanners, long queues and several security checks, not sure what they were expecting. We got to the ground about 720 and only just made kick off
Team started really well dominating the game but that daft Dickie mistake changed the game in their favour, personally though Deing should have come out and made it more difficult for Anthony.
Second goal was really poor defending. Kakay had been dragged out of position and was in midfield so the defence were all shifting over to cover and that opened up as space. You could see the goal coming
That said Bournemouth were quite impressive at times, good when pressing and some real pace and power in the team as well as being a nasty team to play against. They should have scored at least 2 more before we got one back
Not sure if it came across on tv but first half a ball boy refused to throw the ball back to one of our players, not sure if they were doing a Warnock (it was quite early in the game so seemed odd) or if the bloke just couldn’t be arsed but to the stewards credit they moved him away to a different part of the pitch.
One thing I’ve noticed all season in the first half is despite controlling games and getting in good positions we create nothing so the lone striker tends to get a lot of stick, Dykes turn last night feeding off scraps and getting criticised similar to Austin in recent games..
We are also still a very nice team allowing them to run with the ball at us with no tackle whilst they were very quick to make foul and stop momentum. Bournemouth were a noticeably better side than anyone we’ve played so far, that step up was a bit too much for some of our players. I thought Kakay and Ball in particular really struggled at times.
The atmosphere even at 2-0 was still really good although I thought some fans got a bit too obsessed with Gary Cahill second half.
We seemed to make a few small tactical changes second half with Johansson playing deeper and that worked well, he was able to get the ball off the back 3 and get us forward a lot quicker. Adomah coming on gave us a good threat going forward, was a shame Austin was unavailable, think he’d have been a good option off the bench
I thought we played some really good stuff in the last half an hour, really unlucky not to equalise, if that bloody Smurf has actually added on injury time for the time wasting we might have got level, even at the end as Ball was about to put a cross in he blew up, couldn’t bloody wait. I can’t stand Stroud, he was crap all game in fairness to both sides rather than being biased just incompetent.
At the end the fans gave the team a great ovation, I think the general feeling was of pride for how hard they fought for the club last night, we can improve and I do feel a bit more confident about our chances after last night despite the defeat. Bournemouth looked a good side especially the left back going forward.
Bit of a daft incident at the end when a kid ran on the pitch to get Alberts shirt, stewards made a gap to let him get back to his Dad and a female steward grabbed him and started dragging him away, was really over the top and caused QPR fans to grab the kid and pull him away from her causing almighty rows and anger between the police & stewards. Have to say the police did well to move her away from the situation and try and calm people down but was really piss poor and unnecessary,
We ended up heading back to the hotel for a few drinks before finding the bar shut at 10, made our way to a different hotel where after ordering a few at last orders they ended up hoovering around our table with some no so subtle hints we should leave. Upon arriving back at our hotel the bloody doors were locked but luckily a few people were drinking cans in the bar and let us in. There was probably a button to press to let us in but was too pissed to find it.
The morning/afternoon after I'm feeling quite positive about the team, lots we can and have to improve on but there is so much to like about this team
