No China Game at Loftus Road
Two years ago today, after reports in the press that QPR would be play a friendly against China, the club issued a denial: "Correction: The Club has had it brought to its attention that Ceefax and Teletext are reporting a game between QPR and China on February 8. We would like to confirm that no such fixture is taking place at Loftus Road and we have already asked both parties to remove the story. No China Game."

Of course the subsequent QPR-China Training ground scrimmage truly was "The Shot heard around the world!"
