The Bad Boys of Loftus Road?

With an additional six yellow cards against Swansea, QPR moved up to 30 yellow cards and two red cards after just 12 league + 3 cup games. QPR's Disciplinary Record (prior to last night)

In the last few seasons, under Dowie, De Canio, Harford, Gregory, Waddock and Holloway, QPR have consistently ranked near the top in having a poor disciplinary record. (For this season, have only the QPR stats; not how QPR compare to others clubs' disciplinary records.)

Previous Seasons' Disciplinary Record

- In the 2007-2008 season, in the "Foul League," QPR ended up with 86 Yellows and 6 Reds - Just behind Coventry who ended with 90 Yellows and 4 Reds. (In Fouls conceded, QPR with 651 fouls was just behind Plymouth who "topped" with 659 fouls.)- Mikele Leigertwood and Martin Rowlands were in the "Worst 20" Discipline League] [Even so, last season's QPR's Disciplinary record was still a considerable improvement over 2006/2007.]

2007-2008, QPR had 86 yellow cards and 6 Red cards

2006-2007, QPR had 105 Yellow cards and 3 Reds cards

2005-2006, QPR had 79 Yellow and 8 Red cards
