This is simply not true and what has been misrepresented for years.

Rangers didn’t offer to buy Brentford, Brentford came to QPR looking to sell. The two are very different.

If QPR simply said no, there’d be no headline and Brentford would probably have folded.
The fact QPR showed an interest gave the papers the headlines they wanted.
In an ironic twist, this actually galvanised the Brentford fans into action and the club was ultimately saved.

Most people’s recollection of the events, players included, is simply a regurgitation of what they read in the papers and believed it religiously, such is the power of the press.

Jeez.
I met him nigh on 20 years ago, a group of us spent New Years at Longleat. We all had dinner together and also went to parts of the house the public aren’t allowed.

Really nice guy, RIP.

Taylor is a Grade A cnt to come up with a stunt like that.
Using the NHS (not 100% of people’s tax’s go to the NHS) to try and avoid the cut.

Borough of Richmond has one of the lowest, if not lowest, cases of C19 in London.

If a lot of people are travelling from elsewhere to come to Richmond Park they’re risking bringing it with them.

Stay indoors/at home FFS.

I used to go out with his childminder about 15 years ago. We spent a couple of days with him and his family at his place in Spain. Really nice and down to earth people and of course, all R's!!

That's played when we score goals. I don't recall it being played as the players emerge from the tunnel. Could be wrong though.

It's not just the numbers that are in discussion, it's testing ability, strategy and so on.


Michael Gove has said the difficulty in increasing the number of tests is due to a shortage of the relevant "chemical reagents".

A reporter asked the Chemical Industries Association who contacted its members and they've said there is no shortage of the relevant reagents.

So, who is telling the truth and who isn't?

The Darth Vader Imperial March has been used for years. I can't remember any before then.

I think 'London calling' by the Clash gets used but every London club seems to use that too.

Paying taxes in the UK would also help for starters.

How can you seek to claim from something that you do not contribute to? (and I'm excluding UK staff who pay UK PAYE tax)

Yup, the one thing that is abundantly clear is the chronic under funding of the NHS and other 999 services. This is something the government should be shamed over once all this is over.

I've said many times over the years that surely the absolute basic necessities in life should be any political parties top priority; health, education, 999 services, transportation, utilities. That kind of thing.
All the other stuff they can squabble about 'til the cows come home.

All of which have been right royally screwed up the last few decades and people keep proudly putting their X in a box that facilitates this demise.

But the things I mentioned above are the cornerstone of true/pure socialism yet the word 'socialist' is banded around like it's some neo-fascist extremist disease.

All the far left lot (Emma Thompson flying to the UK to protest about climate change, the fkin' irony of that, eh!) pi$$ me off just as much as the far right do.

We need some central ground back to sort all this mess out, and quick.

Thing is, those 11 that died were just the ones known. There could be lots of others who died with it in their system (whether it actually caused the death or not) that were recorded as natural causes or a pre-existing condition.

If every single case was recorded and verified the curve would be flatter. This spike just instills fear and panic especially when you factor in I think they are now adding those who passed away at home or in a care home rather than just a hospital which makes the spike even worse.

Graphs are being made with mixtures of data over the last month or so which adds to inaccuracies.

We need consistent data to get a better picture.

Fans going to games (in the PL) counts for so little these days that them not going will have little effect.

The TV subscriber is the main source of income. Thats why they move fixtures around all the time, to satisfy the main customer, not the fans who go. They don’t count.

Cancel it and it’ll have a profound effect. Advertisers will pull out, so will sponsors.

Time for the government to grow a pair of balls and start collecting from Amazon, Starbucks, Mr Branson and all the other massive corporations who pay peanuts.

As I mentioned on another thread, our CEO's, Executives etc are earning £millions. Will they personally take a cut to help the staff? I don't think they would, it would come out of company money then in the future there will be redundancies, pay freezes, no bonuses etc to cover it. They'll still get their £millions though.
Can't see QPR owners doing any different.

Our global MD/CEO is supposedly paid around £8m-10m p/a. Then there's expenses, bonuses, share dividends and so on.

Then there's the Board, the Executives and so on. All these people earning £millions.

I know they're highly experienced, under big pressure etc but Is what they do really justifiable for these amounts? I mean, just how much is enough? How much can you actually spend?

Then there's the salaries of our parent company, even bigger probably at top level.

Will all these people be taking a cut to ensure the staff are OK?

I remember the days of "28 days for delivery". Now its expected next day or maybe even same day.

Now that services like Amazon Prime are rightly focussing on necceseties, I think some people are going to have to get used to... *gasp* maybe a whole week!

Oh the humanity.
