- "....While I'm in a confessional mood, I can remember punching the ball to control it at Loftus Road and wellying the ball past the QPR keeper."
-So, when Diego Maradona scored his Hand of God goal, I couldn't feel too indignant
-The only difference was one happened in a World Cup quarter-final in the Azteca Stadium with the eyes of the world upon it, and the other on a foggy day at Loftus Road, when you couldn't see further than 50 yards

Sunday People/Chris Davies - Rangers rescued by Rado
Nottingham Forest should have won this game in a canter but had to be content with a point at Loftus Road.
The draw left both clubs still searching for their first victory of the season yet QPR should look upon the point as a bonus rather than two dropped because they were under the cosh for long spells.
Radoslaw Majewski was named the man of the match and did enough to have won an entertaining clash.
A combination of wayward finishing and often desperate defending by Rangers restricted Forest to one goal but boss Billy Davies will take heart from his team's polished performance.
Forest almost took the lead in the fourth minute when Radek Cerny made a superb double save, initially beating out Majewski's shot and then parrying Joe Garner's follow up.
Despite the intelligent properties of Rangers' Argentine midfielder Alejandro Faurlin, Forest assumed early control and Damion Stewart and Fitz Hall needed to be commanding in the air as the visitors sent over some testing crosses.
Forest almost grabbed the lead when Garner connected with Chris Haynes' low centre from the left and in the 20th minute David McGoldrick missed a golden chance after a good run by Majewski but the midfielder's low drive from 15 yards was inches wide.
Then the dangerous Majewski went close with a stinging half volley.
Adel Taarabt rushed a 23rd-minute shot when he had time to control the ball. Gary Borrowdale shot high over the bar when he should have hit the target but in the 26th minute Rangers took the lead when Mikele Leigertwood beat former R's keeper Lee Camp with a stunning shot from 20 yards.
An action-packed half came to a close with Cerny diving to his right to keep out a 22-yard free-kick by Majewski.
Soon after the restart Tarrabt's strong run set up a chance for Alessandro Pellicori but his shot was weak and wide.
The goal Forest had been threatening finally came in the 58th minute. Camp's long free-kick was helped on by Dele Adebola and McGoldrick volleyed home from 15 yards.
Qpr: Cerny 7 - Ramage 6, Stewart 7, Hall 6 (Gorkss, 46mins, 6), Borrowdale 6 - Routledge 6, *FAURLIN 8, Leigertwood 7, Taarabt 6 (Buzsaky, 67mins, 5) - Helguson 6, Pellicori 5 (Vine, 61mins, 6).
Nottingham Forest: Camp 7 - Gunter 7, Morgan 7, Chambers 6, Lynch 6 (McCleary, 46mins, 6) - Garner 7, McKenna 6, *MAJEWSKI 9, Cohen 7 - Adebola 7 (Blackstock, 72mins, 5), McGoldrick 7 (Tyson 75mins). REFEREE: J Linington Sunday People

NEWS OF THE WORLD - Billy Davies is fuming over Pleat appointment
- BILLY DAVIES is not taking David Pleat's arrival as a consultant at Nottingham Forest very well.
- And boss Davies is fuming at talk that Pleat, who lost his job commentating for ITV, will get more involved.
He said: "David Pleat has not been appointed by me and his role is none of my business. But there's not a chance in hell that I'll walk out of this club.
"Every manager should be allowed to manage his team. Modern football is full of middlemen, directors of football, chief executives, football consultants, general managers.
"Whatever name you give them, they are here to stay but managers must be able to manage and I will never change my mind on that."
Davies attack on Pleat overshadowed an entertaining affair at Loftus Road.
Forest took the game to Rangers but got hit by a 25th-minute sucker punch.
QPR's Mikele Leigertwood does not score many and will probably never score one as good as the 25-yard curler that beat Lee Camp.
But the visitors deservedly got back in the game 12 minutes after half-time.
Dele Adebola's clever flick split the QPR defence.
That put David McGoldrick through and he hammered his first Forest goal home.
Rangers got booed off and boss Jim Magilton admitted: "That was our poorest performance of the season." News Of The World

Daily Star Sunda/Paul Brown - MAGILTON STUCK IN THE PITS
- FLASHY QPR owner Flavio Briatore was busy at the European Grand Prix while his football club did their best impression of a clapped-out old banger.
- The Renault team boss has yet to see his side show much va-va-voom for coach Jim Magilton, who hasn’t led the team to a league victory this season.
- But he was lucky to miss this one as QPR were played off the park by a Forest team who will wonder how they are still waiting for a win.
- Mikele Leigertwood did put Rangers in the driving seat with a cracker in the 26th minute, letting rip from 25 yards to put the hosts ahead.
- But the goal did not faze Forest who continued to boss the game and it was no real surprise when David McGoldrick fired them level.
- Rangers old boy Lee Camp hit a long free-kick forward and David McGoldrick stretched to fire Dele Adebola’s header into the net from 10 yards for his first goal since a £1million move from Southampton.
