Redknapp: QPR Concedes 'Worst Goals in My Life' in Loss

Christopher Samba, Queens Park Rangers’ $19 million January signing from Anzhi Makhachkala, was the main culprit as the relegation-threatened club went 3-0 behind to Fulham in the first half at Craven Cottage to what coach Harry Redknapp described as the “worst goals I’ve seen in my life.” Though QPR battled back, Fulham still won the game, 3-2, leaving QPR seven points adrift of 17th place in the Premier League standings and a whopping 14 away from 40 (which is usually considered safety) with just seven games to play.

After the game, Redknapp was in no mood for excuses. "A disastrous first half cost us, they were the worst goals I've seen in my life," he said. "They were scandalous goals. It was an absolute disaster.” The former Tottenham coach added: "We came out in the second half and murdered them. We missed another penalty which has cost us again. We had enough possession in the second half, when it went 3-2, I thought we would win the game.”

Samba, who gave away a penalty and then lost possession 20 yards from goal, leading to the first two goals for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov, took to Twitter to apologize to QPR’s fans. "I'm really sorry I let the side down, really upset with my 1st half performance. I can't say sorry enough to all the supporters, won't give up," he tweeted.
