- Mike Keen Tribute Match at Wycombe

- Nice flashback to a Graham Greene/The Times match report of QPR vs Blackpool from the Rodney Marsh/Mike Keen magic 1967/68 Season:
- "....As for Marsh himself he remains the individualist and the entertainer he will always be. Hooked up a number of times in full artistic flow he always managed to turn the ire of others to laughter in the fluent manner of his falling. He should be a tumbler or a clown in a circus.
- Let as a footballer he is no clown. He may not suit the planners or those who worship method. But he makes the crowd purr and it was now only the howling gale, two great saves by Taylor and those illegal last ditch obstructions that kept him out of the score line.
- But if Marsh raises the cry of "Rod-ney, Rod-ney!" from the terraces, the steady pulse of this Rangers` side beats in their captain, Keen. Unhurried, long legged, deep thinking and one-paced not unlike Crerand, of Manchester United - he prods his men on week after week from no man`s land. Quiet but keen, he is well named."

Daily Mirror/Nick Ive - -QPR 1-1 Swansea: - Lee Cook Perspective
- Lee Cook admits avoiding the drop is QPR’s sole aim this season - but the midfielder believes the good times are just around the corner under new boss Neil Warnock.
- Warnock has breathed new life into Rangers following a season of turmoil and the Londoners took another step towards safety by fighting back to salvage a point against high-flying Swansea.

And QPR fan Cook is confident that the colourful boss, who has suffered just one defeat matches in charge, will transform the fortunes of the Londoners once he has had a chance to stamp his authority on the team.

The 61-year-old, the fifth different manager to take the reins at Loftus Road this season, will be given funds to bring in new faces and move on any dead wood in the summer.

And Cook, who made his mark as a second-half substitute, declared: “I’m really looking forward to impressing him and getting a few goals.
- “It’s been a difficult season but we can finish on a high under the boss.

"At the end of the day he’s on our side now and I think because of that you stand more chance of winning.

“We can now go for it. Everyone knows we are working hard and pulling together. The work-rate of the boys has been upped by 20 per cent. I think there are good times ahead.”

Had QPR appointed Warnock earlier in the campaign then Cook believes a dramatic assault on the play-offs would not have been out of the question.

“The realistic target is to get safe,” added the midfielder. “But maybe we’d be going for the play-offs if Warnock had come in earlier.

“Amazingly we won one game in 13 and then after a couple of wins people were saying we were in reach of the play-offs.

It’s disappointing but all we can do now is look to the future.”

Promotion-chasing Swansea opened the scoring after 57 minutes through Nathan Dyer, but 18-year-old substitute Antonio German salvaged a point for the home side 14 minutes before time when he crashed home from close range.

It was Swans boss Paulo Sousa’s first return to Loftus Road since he was sacked last April and Spanish defender Angel Rangel offered his sympathy that they were unable to hold out for a victory.

Rangel said: “It was special for him coming back as he really liked it at Loftus Road and we are just disappointed we couldn’t get the win.

“But at this stage of the season a point away from home is good.

“I don’t think we can finish in the top two now, but the aim is just to finish in the play-offs Mirror
