Chloe Kelly … England Euro winner

Post by ZENITH R » Sun Jul 31, 2022 6:58 pm

Chloe is a QPR fan. She has just scored the winner at Wembley and when the BBC interviewed her … she was holding a QPR flag!

She started out at our academy too.

Congratulations Chloe.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Apparently, she said on Talksport it was her Bobby Zamora moment.

You have just got to love this young lady.

Reminded me a bit of Clive Allen's winner at Highbury '82.

I feel it's condenscending to want her in the Forever R's just because she played here as a child.
What exactly has she achieved for and with QPR to justify her being an forever R?
Just because she is a woman, she should be admitted? Or are we going to include all male players who played for QPR when they were 9 and went on to win prizes with other teams?

Women should be able to play football whenever and where ever they want and it's great that it's evolving. We are however getting very carried away with comparing them with the '66 World Cup winners, stating that their top scorer has surpassed Wayne Rooney etc.

Let the women build their own history and legacy. The constant comparing them with male achievements is ridiculous and will only harm them in the long run.

Winding back 10 years, there was some talk of expanding the ladies team to compete with the giants but uncle Tony spunked all the money on the men's team and a crap motor racing team...

Hardly Chloe's fault her talent was beyond the merits of the ladies team....
2022/2023.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

If he had spent the cash expanding the ladies team would you have spent 30 pounds on a ticket to go and watch? Bought a season ticket? Bought their merchandise? Followed them across the country? Lets be honest, none of us would have, so I understand that they didn't get priority investment wise.
Even now the best WSL teams attract amateur league attendances and the average football fan will always spend their money and time watching the mans game if he has to choose.
There is however a new demographic following the national team and perhaps that will spill over to league games although I don't know if these new fans will follow their team at every opportunity but who knows.

The forever R's is for players and staff who have served the club well and have become QPR (cult) legends. If we start admitting players who have not served the first team but have later on become successful with other teams then players like Raheem Sterling should also be admitted. Where does it end?

I'm taking nothing away from the womens achievement and wish them growing popularity and hope all girls get equal oppurtunities to play the game.
