And never after a win oddly enough.
Well, I'd be waiting an awfully long time, wouldn't I?

It's just incredible that people on here prefer not winning for 17 away games to having a proper manager like Warnock leading a promotion charge.

That level of supreme stupidity deserves the dream team of Fernandes, Ferdinand and Holloway. Keep clapping happily away, lemmings!
It's over 2 years now. Warnock's been in another job for a long time, and he isn't coming back. You can (and evidently will) keep whining on about something that might have happened, but didn't, but seriously what's the f**king point ?

"People on here" didn't choose Fernandes, Ferdinand or Holloway. No one thinks they're the dream team, or enjoys getting beaten regularly. But what are your alternative suggestions ? Do you think there'll be a lot of takers for a Championship team with crowds of less than 15k, bugger all in the way of infrastructure, and a potential fine of £40M + hanging over its head ?

I don't think we'll need a shitty stick to beat off potential buyers somehow.

Why not organise a protest at HQ and let the powers that be know what you think ?

I'll be here not holding my breath with the other lemmings.

I disagree; if this club was run properly (including a decent manager), we could easily win promotion to the Premier League; the teams at the top of the Championship really aren't all that (Wolves excepted). Similarly, we could then stay up without spending a huge amount of money - or even, come straight back down and invest the Premier League bounty in the club's infrastructure.

Unfortunately, by appointing a succession of poor managers we are closer to League One, crowds are falling and the board's lack of ambition demonstrates that we are now analogous to Fernandes' Caterham F1 team. Fans seem to think that being a former QPR player is more important than actually being good at your job; a run of 17 games (and counting) without an away win is diabolical.

"Promotion charge" - now that's just silly. There is about as much chance of this squad mounting a challenge at the top (no matter who is in charge) - as me getting a date with Scarlett Johansson. That's not to say someone else could keep us up though. Olly needs a couple of results, and that is the reality of the situation.
I assume you mean a couple of results will inspire confidence that will lead to keeping well away from a relegation dog fight. Clearly the results against Wolves and Sheffield United did not so where is the evidence for your optimism
I'm not optimistic... just hoping. I've been accused by a lot on here for being too pessimistic, so I may as well live in hope. Not much else you can do with our club.

Anyone know what the record is for QPR and no away wins? I don't remember a run as bad as this in my time.
