The best QPR XI since the Millennium – Goalkeepers

Published

on

It has been a rollercoaster of a Millennium for QPR so far.

The club have seen financial troubles, outstanding promotions, Premier League drama, relegation, promotion, relegation and more financial trouble.

A period of calm probably wouldn’t go amiss at the moment and that seems to be what they are getting under Mark Warburton’s stewardship, with the R’s currently sat well clear of trouble and a fair way from promotion too.

Here, we begin to gather the club’s team of the Millennium so far, starting in goal.

We have given you four options and at the end, you will have your chance to vote…

Alex Smithies

Smithies was unfortunate not to cross paths with a promotion-winning season at Loftus Road during his time at the club, but he was an excellent shot-stopper for The R’s.

He made over 40 appearances in two consecutive Championship seasons during a turbulent time for the club but still performed admirably and kept 21 clean sheets in that time as well as stepping up to the plate the year before as well.

QUIZ: Can you name the player who scored the first QPR goal in each of the last 16 seasons?

Rob Green

Green was a focal point of the R’s impressive promotion straight back to the Premier League during the 2013/14 season, after Julio Cesar (one of many expensive assets) was offloaded to save money.

He kept 19 clean sheets in 45 league games during that season and then six more.

After they went back down immediately, he still stuck with the club, although eventually started to lose his place to Alex Smithies.

Paddy Kenny

Kenny was an everpresent during the R’s insane promotion-winning season of 2010/11, keeping 24 clean sheets and conceding just 30 goals.

He remained their number one in the Premier League for the first campaign too, playing 33 times, as QPR scraped to survival in the top-flight on the last day of the season in THAT match against Man City.

Simon Royce

Someone who only fans of a certain age will remember.

Royce spent three seasons at Loftus Road across two different spells, and although he never tasted much success with the club, he was always a reliable presence for the club between the sticks.

In 82 appearances for The R’s he made over 80 appearances and kept 23 clean sheets.
