On a particularly bad day for QPR, an angry visitor threw some turf onto their artificial pitch in protest at its impediment to their team’s ascent to the top of Division One. Similar issues such as relegations, power struggles and financial problems have bedevilled football league’s first artificial surfaces throughout history.
Preston FC have made the most of their post-plastic existence despite being at the bottom of the ladder between 1981 and 1994. Here is what they’ve learned from playing on Omni-Turf:
Lee Camp is one of a select group of young US comics with an uncompromisingly liberal outlook, taking aim at right-wing America with his sharp comedy. He’s performed across the country with his fiery brand of standup, and George Carlin’s daughter said that Camp is one of few who keeps her father’s flame burning brightly.
Camp is optimistic about his move to Norwich, believing the Canaries are his best chance for success in the Premier League after being passed over by Nottingham Forest. Although he and Mark Bunn will likely engage in fierce competition for the No. 1 jersey, Camp believes this signing could prove beneficial to all parties involved.
Preston’s unbeaten run came to an end as Gareth Ainsworth scored twice in extra time to salvage a point. Neil Mellor and Tamas Priskin appeared set for an extended lead of seven matches before Ainsworth ignited the late comeback.
Hawley, a former Carlisle United striker, has been watching DVDs to relive the glory days. In 2004, he helped the Cumbrian club gain Conference promotion by scoring 26 goals as they won League Two and then made an impressive transition into League One.
He is now a college lecturer and coach for Burton Albion, as well as running soccer schools. His experiences in dealing with mental obstacles have enabled him to provide guidance for young players today.
On Wednesday night, Preston suffered an incredible upset at Deepdale as nine-man North End defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1. Goals from Youl Mawene and Karl Hawley sealed the win for Mowbray’s men.
On Friday afternoon, Charlton ended Stoke City’s 13 match unbeaten streak, Watford were held to a draw by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane and Hull triumphed against Norwich City. Unfortunately for Colchester United, though, they suffered defeat against Barnsley at home koora live.
Paul Gallagher is the elder brother of former Oasis stars Liam and Noel, having written their autobiographies. Additionally, he runs a media agency called B-M.
He may not be as famous as Sylvester Stallone’s brother or Naomi Campbell’s mother, but his only ambition is to write an intriguing story about his more renowned brothers.
He succeeds at this, waxing poetic about their beloved mother Peggy in a style similar to The Krays’. The book Brothers: From Childhood to Oasis is somewhat captivating, though ultimately it’s just another Britpop classic.
In an effort to avoid family rivalry, he’s taken a more relaxed approach and has largely avoided the turmoil that often characterizes siblings’ interactions. It provides him with much-needed relief from the arguments that seem to dominate their lives.
Last night’s defeat to Preston QPR has further compounded Leeds’ relegation woes. They are now three points adrift of safety with games now starting to run out.
On April 9, Leeds should have been in a strong position. Hull had defeated Southend and QPR had lost at home, but victory over Colchester would have put them atop the league table.
United lost by 2-0, being denied by a late Colchester goal. United are now only one point clear of Luton and two behind Southend.
Billy Jones may have become one of Europe’s most decorated defenders in an alternate universe. The Preston full back made his Premier League debut with West Brom in 2012 and contributed to six out of the club’s ten clean sheets that season.
He made 17 appearances, mostly covering for Steven Reid, who was injured. Additionally, he partnered David Wheater at right-back in a central defence that was strong during that first season.
Preston defender David James was furious after watching Adel Taarabt inspire QPR to a point at Deepdale. The loan signing from Turkish side Besiktas found Peter Ramage for Rangers with an early goal, before Tamas Priskin levelled things up with an impressive finish.
QPR have moved up to 19th place in the table, but remain managerless after Harry Redknapp’s shock departure last week. They next face Sunderland at Stadium of Light and remain 12 points off safety with 13 games left to play.
