That venerable organ, the BBC, got it wrong for the winning QPR goal 11 years ago in the one home play-off semi final so far.
Paul Furlong did indeed score, but he didn’t brush aside Clint Hill en route to goal as written - it was Fitz Hall who got the elbow, arms and a bit of a shove.
As if the world wasn’t small enough, all three and the opposition manager were to play a future part in Rangers fortunes.
Hill will be doing his best to make sure Rangers are in a play-off final for the second time. And in a full and rounded career, Furlong played into his 42nd year; amazing, given his forward berth before winning a permanent appointment as the Rs U18 coach just this week.
He scored 57 goals for Rangers in his five-year stint - but none so important as the one that sent the stadium cock-a-Hoops (pun intended) in the 82nd minute as he ran on to a through ball from Clarke Carlisle and nicked it around Oldham keeper Les Pogliacomi with Hall struggling.
It was Furlong’s 14th of a campaign, although boss Ian Hollloway reckoned Hall would have got it in the neck for the easy brush off had the central defender been in his side.
As it turned out, Hall was later to join Rangers in a checkered stay drought with injury between 2008 and 2012.
It was enough to see off Iain Dowie's team in a second leg marred by a red card at the end for Oldham’s Wayne Andrews.
Kevin McMcLeod and Richard Pacquette, now at Maidenhead United since you ask, had missed chances to put the tie to bed after a fractious first leg ended 1-1 at Boundary Park four days earlier.
Richard Langley equalised in the 46th minute after David Eyres opened for Oldham just before the half hour. But Langley missed the second leg when he picked up a second yellow 10 minutes from time, ironically, after a spat with Eyres. Still, it bodes well that the away leg of a play-off semi final was a decent draw against a side called Latics.
The second leg in front of 17,000 delirious fans was a false dawn, however.
It was to end in tears in the Millennium Stadium 12 days later when Hoops were beaten 1-0 by Cardiff on their own patch by a late Andy Campbell goal in extra time.
Rangers decided to play that day in the all white kit that proved successful for the 1967 League Cup winning Hoops. But far from being all white, it went all wrong after sub Andy Thomson headed an inch over near the end of 90 minutes.
Holding his breath, and In the centre of the Cardiff defence that awful day was Danny Gabbidon. All roads appeared to lead to Loftus Road after May 2003 it seemed.
QPR 1-0 Oldham (aggregate 2-1): Chris Day, Stephen Kelly, Clarke Carlisle, Danny Shittu, Gino Padula, Kevin Gallen, Marc Bircham, Steve Palmer, Kevin McLeod, Andy Thomson, Paul Furlong. Subs: Nick Culkin, Terrell Forbes, Pacquette, Brett Angell, Tommy Williams.
