Pathetic QPR down in shame

Report Card: QPR

QPR on the brink ahead of City clash

Socceroos' midfielder Massimo Luongo fights for starting spot at QPR

Australia and QPR midfielder Massimo Luongo sits down for an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Jason Dasey to discuss his family background, life in Sydney, Indonesian food and more.

LONDON -- From becoming a national hero and being named on the preliminary FIFA Ballon d'Or list, to sitting on the bench on a cold Saturday afternoon in Birmingham; Massimo Luongo's life is anything but predictable.

Nine months after his player of the tournament award as Australia won the AFC Asian Cup for the first time, the 23-year-old midfielder is still fighting to establish himself at Queens Park Rangers in the English League Championship.

Luongo made the move from third tier Swindon Town...

Charlie Austin has taken the long way on his path to Premier League success

Queens Park Rangers' season is ending with almost all hands lost. A squad of ageing veterans and mediocre imports will be broken up in the summer, as the club's owners attempt to salvage order from chaos while also mounting a legal battle to evade a £58 million fine for breaching Football League financial rules during the club's last stay in the Championship.

Charlie Austin, though, looks certain to be back in England's first division next season. A club that desperately needs the money will...

Charlie Austin gets top marks; a few 'bad eggs' score low at QPR

Charlie Austin enjoyed a fine season but couldn't keep Queens Park Rangers afloat.

QPR's squad of players -- fully-fit, in-form and motivated -- should have helped them cruise to mid-table obscurity this season, instead they fell to another infamous relegation and most of the guilty parties, criticised as "bad eggs" by Joey Barton, will now collect their lucre elsewhere.

GK Rob Green, 8 -- A titan at the back for Rangers who has more than earned a reported move to Chelsea this summer. A few individual...

Pathetic QPR down in shame amid a disastrous Premier League season

With the Premier League season over, here's a look back at Queens Park Rangers' campaign as thoughts turn towards the summer and next season.

Your season in a sentence and final grade: F


Winning 4-1 away at West Brom gave long-suffering away supporters something to cheer about and gave a few of them false hope for Premier League survival.

Bobby Zamora's goal was sublime and he deserved that after an impressive second half of the season where he was correctly used by head coach Chris Ramsey...

Fer not a fit for QPR in the Championship

Anyone who saw Leroy Fer's goal for QPR in the 2-1 win over Newcastle two weeks ago will know he has the quality to play in the Premier League. But if you saw his defensive contributions for two of the five goals the club conceded against Leicester on Sunday, you might assume he doesn't have the heart for a Championship slog.

Marc Albrighton gave the Netherlands international a 12-metre head start in their race for the ball in the build-up to Leicester's second goal and the Englishman still cruised...

Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

3. Arsenal
