According to Wikipedia QPR were formed by the merger of St.Judes and Christchurch Rangers in 1882. However in Trefor Jones' excellent Watford Season by Season reference book he records that West Herts beat Christchurch Rangers 3-1 at home on 18 October 1884 which I'm guessing was the first meeting between the sides that would go on to be known as Watford and Queens Park Rangers.
Our first competitive meeting was in the 4th qualifying round of the FA Cup in the 1900/1 season when we drew 1-1 at home before going down 4-1 in West London.
In competitive games played (disregarding those in the Southern League as I've not added them to my database yet!) we've met 113 times, winning 32, drawing 34, losing 47, scoring 151 and conceding 176. 56 of those games have been played at the Vic of which we've won 20, drawn 14 and lost 22, scoring and conceding 80.
Last season Malky gained the only league win of his short caretaking career over QPR when we won 3-0 at the Vic with a penalty from Tommy Smith and goals from on loan Darren Ward and Lee Williamson. Under Judas we drew the last game of 2008 0-0 at Loftus Road.
By common media consent (I've heard it on both Sky and the BBC) the wheels are suddenly coming off the R's promotion push because they've only won one game in the last six and were unexpectedly beaten 5-1 by Middlesbrough at home yesterday. They are currently 9th and have one more point than ourselves.
With panto season nearly upon us its a shame we won't get to practise cheering or booing ex-Watford players as Gavin Mahon and Lee Cook are both out injured and obviously H is on loan with us. However Aidy's old friend Fitz Hall should line up in defence for Rangers.
