"Taarabt's too good for you," rang out at Loftus Road, as he had a lucky deflection for his first goal (although he'll probably say he meant it), and his second was a superb solo effort.
Without the Moroccan Magician, who was the star of the show on Saturday, QPR may well have faltered to their 17th game without a win.
He looks like a transformed player this season compared to last—tracking back, making tackles (sometimes), controlling the play, completing 17 step overs a minute, creating many spectacular chances and scoring even more spectacular goals.
The game against Fulham highlighted how influential he is at QPR, but he must make a decision soon as to whether he will stay and help the Rangers revival or play for his country in the African Cup of Nations next month.
Taarabt told the BBC earlier this week:
Of course, it's my country so it's a difficult decision for me because the situation with my club is difficult and the manager asked if I could stay. I would love to but it's my country so if I say no everybody at home will think I don't want to play.
Any rational person can see both sides of Adel's dilemma and understand how hard the decision will be.
But Rangers desperately need Taarabt, and fans will hope he realizes that before the ACON roll call.
