QPR 1, Stoke City 2

Inept defending, midfield indifference (hello, Marc Bircham!) and a first half penalty muff by Gareth Ainsworth that even Discharge’s Cal could’ve stopped, conspired to sink QPR Tuesday evening, 2-1 losers to Stoke City at Loftus Road.

(the Potters’ Hans Sigurdsson can hardly believe Rangers are so careless on their own turf).

Yours truly could’ve enjoyed the televised splendors of Inter’s 2-1 win over Villarreal in the Champions League, but instead opted for the live drudgery of the nothing-left-to-play-for Superhoops. 28 quid is a lot of money to watch the R’s struggle without Kevin Gallen, but I had to double that toll when I arrived at will call and my ticket was nowhere to be found. Good old Rangers, some things never change.
