Oldham for me. The first of only two purely euphoric moments (along with Zamora) in my football watching life. The 1-0 home win against the scum was one of the best matches over 90 minutes, but you can’t beat a euphoric moment.

Both of those goals came out of nowhere and produced absolute transcendental pandemonium.

Furlong’s was better because it was the first inkling that we might one day have our day in the sun again, against all the odds, for many years. Plus it was a bit of proper quality in a limited league.

Zamora’s had the ten men/promotion to the premier league things going for it.

Both unforgettable.
...and Daisy's save after the Furlong goal was the icing on the cake

Surely someone else on here was at Wembley '67 and Villa Park when we reached the top flight for the first time ever. I was in tears of joy for the first and just the happiest memories of running on the pitch and dancing with the players at the second. The drive back down the motorway was surreal, seemed like every car had a blue & white scarf hanging from it and chanting/ horn honking all the way back home.

Incredible day, I can’t believe that 5 years has passed since it happened.

We’ve paid for it ever since, but that moment will live with me for the rest of my life.

The most un-QPR moment, ever.

Yes I was at both games. Those two with the FA cup final, Hillsborough, play off final and the Leeds game were all good for different reasons. Difficult to pick one. If I had to it would be the play off final if only because I had given up and was relaxed waiting for what I thought was the inevitable Derby goal. That moment when we scored was just indescribable.

I have only been in tears twice at a football match:
- Fenwicks equalizer against Spurs in the Cup Final
- The final whistle at Hillsborough when we went up with Ollie and the gang
