Re: Pickford / Smithies

At Pickford prices, £8m is looking like it'd be a snip for Smithies. Given our relegation would have been nailed on by Easter (if not before) without him between the sticks, I think we should be looking to keep him for at least one more season, especially as he's under contract, not expressed any wi...

Re: Transfer rumours

Looks like Yeni might be off.... Looks to me more like speculative non-journalism from GWL. After the grim chaos of last season, he's another one who needs a professional pre-season and a decent run in a stable side if we're to assess him properly. Will it happen on the strange planet of QPR? And w...

Re: Transfer rumours

According to Wiki Williamson has made 10 appearances in two years! How much is he going to pay us to play again? Washington will be sold if we can get £5m for him. Personally I'd like to keep him but it might mean Sylla gets a chance. If we sell Washington, Smithies and Bowler and get in £13m that ...

Re: Transfer rumours

QPR have been linked with a move for defender Mike Williamson, according to Football League World. The 33-year-old will be a free agent on June 1 after being released from Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of the season. The former-Newcastle United man signed an 18-month deal in January 2016, befo...

Re: EX-QPR full back - career decision

Funny, I don't remember his beastliness. That aggressively bashed cross to Charlie in a home game, precipitating Mr Austin's foul-mouthed response and his fractious response, does stick in the mind though, and told me all I needed to know about his team-spiritedness. Another lovely deal from Harry, ...

Re: The Queens Park Rangers FA Cup Fiasco (video)

Thank you, if thanks are due, for that grisly compilation. Some of the most terrible goals we've ever conceded are surely found in that trail of disgrace. The FA Cup has certainly been sprinkled with magic for us - black magic! And even when we got to Wembley (twice) and scored a goal that might hav...

Re: Updates on new stadium, training ground and more

We are indeed not so much a sleeping giant as a woken midget. Our average crowd in our vintage 1975-76 season was less than 24,000. When we finished 5th (top London club) in 1992-93 in the first Premier League season, it was barely 15,000. In glamour/popular terms, we are now miles behind Fulham, an...

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

We're on a squeaky bum-type run, no doubt about that, but we may not even need that win. (Blackburn currently a goal down.)

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

OK - didn't know about the possible concussion. Perhaps, though, that's part of Ned's problem these days - he's just in too much of a comfort zone.

Re: Match thread: Queens Park Rangers FC v Sheffield Wednesday

I hoe Ollie IS learning something with this disspiriting run of defeats. It feels like we took two or three steps forward with our winning run, and now four or five back. I don't feel too sold on the look of that side either, though am happy enough to have Mackie back in it - albeit presumably as an...

Re: looking up

Understandably quiet on the Board post Brighton, I guess not so much we lost, as more there's nothing in the game for us to fight iover. They won, good game, that's it. As Olly alluded to though, we needn't have fought at all, and Lord knows we did in the second half at least, but many would have c...

Re: Player of the Year Event Cancelled

I don't really see why the club SHOULDN'T subsidise it, in the same way that my editors' association kindly footed the bill for our Xmas dinner. Seriously, when do football clubs EVER do anything as a 'thank you' to fans? £119 is just a joke. IMO, Hoos needs to get real and not embarrass the club. I...
