I agree but I can’t help but think today is just so different for youngsters compared to what we had, and I’m talking about as little as 20yrs ago, We lived and breathed footy, if we weren’t playing it we was listening to it..if we weren’t listening to it we was watching it.. if we wasn’t at a match we was reading shoot or match magazine, it was a way of life.Libertine wrote: ↑Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:53 pmBeing driven down South Africa road as a child, seeing all the hooped shirts, seeing the players walking from the old BBC car park, seeing the badge and Loftus Road sign, walking down Batman Close to the Uxbridge Road before kick off, leaning over the wall to touch the pitch from the Paddock, hearing the raw of the Loft after a goal and the deafening "Come on You R's" before a corner are some of my favourite childhood memories. I couldn't be more grateful towards my Dad for taking me as a boy and we've shared some amazing moments whilst following QPR together down the years. Of all the amazing things my Dad has done for me over my entire life, the QPR indoctrination is undoubtedly top of the list.
I know it's largely depressing following QPR but don't forget this is the greatest football club on the entire planet. If you don't encourage them to follow QPR you'll be missing out on some of the best possible bonding moments you could wish for. You'll likely only experience one or two in a generation... but what moments they'll be.
"My God, a moment of bliss. Why, isn't that enough for a whole lifetime?"
If my daughter shows even the slightest hint of an interest in watching live sport. There's only one place I'll be taking her.
Now they have so much going on & live life through an iPhone or whatever the whole buzz & passion of football just isn’t there with youngsters.
I seriously doubt my kids will ever feel the passion like I did for QPR as a youngster no matter how many times I take them to LR.
