'Like Piers Morgan in his underwear' - Rio Ferdinand's frank assessment of QPR v Palace game

QPR and Crystal Palace faced off in a dire game at Loftus Road.

QPR took on Crystal Palace today in a London derby with relegation connotations for both teams. It was also a big day for Palace. They took on QPR at Loftus Road in the first game since sacking Neil Warnock earlier this week, with Keith Millen taking temporary charge.

And put it this way, it is not a game that will headline Match of the Day this evening.

It was not a game that had fans on tenterhooks as both teams struggled to play their best game in a woeful affair. Palace played Wilfried Zaha as the central striker, with little effect. Meanwhile Bobby Zamora and Charlie Austin were not in great form either.

Both teams looked toothless and the 0-0 scoreline was a fair reflection of a rather dull and dreary game.

It was so bad that even some of the players on the pitch admitted so on Twitter after.

Rio Ferdinand painted a rather vivid picture of the terrible game, with this descriptive Tweet:

Whilst Joey Barton was a little more tactful:

Needless to stay, don't stay up for the highlights of this one tonight.
