28 Years Ago Today, QPR And Manchester City Played The Worst 20 Seconds Of Football Ever
It is 28 years today since QPR and Manchester City played out the worst 20 seconds of football ever and it is a thing of beauty.
QPR were hosting City at Loftus Road for an FA Cup fourth round tie back on January 23 1993.
The clip has it all, from last ditch tackles to poor clearances as well as one of the worst misses of all time.
Check out the clip below for a taste of the action.
We're going to try and break down the absolute bedlam in detail.
City goalkeeper Tony Coton is slow to react, diving at the feet of Hoops forward Bradley Allen completely missing the mark.
Allen's ball is intercepted by City defender Steve McMahon who then plays the ball back to his keeper.
Coton then attempts to hoof the ball forward but his kick cannons straight into a QPR player.

The ball falls to the feet of Premier League legend Les Ferdinand who is staring at an open goal two yards out.
However, the usually clinical Ferdinand loses his footing in the six yard box and takes two swipes at the open goal.
His second attempt leads to the ball going out of play and leaving City wondering how they haven't conceded.
Modern managers such as Pep Guardiola likely wouldn't be too enamoured with the scrappy display, but the Sunday League-esque quality will probably resonate with many.
It's safe to say this passage of play won't be beaten in the FA Cup fourth round action coming up this weekend.
Do you know of any other passages of play that are as horrific as this?
