Totally!

Even when we were pants beyond belief, all you could hear on the away matches was our fans. They've been unreal and kept us in matches. And our home attendances have been unbelievable this season, despite our awful record until recently at home.

We deserve nice things....

Support has been sensational. Swansea mate messaged me to say the away end was one of the best he's seen in recent times yesterday. Take a bow all of you indeed

It's kind of amazing that through some of our bleakest times that the fans seem to have come to the fore. Selling Loftus Road out every week and taking thousands to away games is a real throwback to different times here. Even when we were flying under Warnock and playing mad attacking football under Warburton we didn't fill the place or take that many away supporters with us.

I was talking about this with some friends a few weeks ago and it was mentioned that some younger fans coming into watching football who would have been going to Fulham and Brentford (mainly Fulham) have been totally priced out of those clubs and have fallen in love with us. I don't know if that is true at all but I can imagine that some people in the area looking for a club to follow have seen us as being a better bet and more affordable.

It's either that or us existing fans are all mad. It's great thought to see LR sold out every week. Makes such a difference from the lows of last season where I could literally lie across empty seats and go to sleep. Which I often did during the Critchley era, poor bloke.

Never knowingly right.

I've noticed for a while and someone has posted recently on another thread that we seem to have gained some younger fans recently who weren't here in the previous few seasons which is excellent news. I'm sure price has something to do with it but also how they can watch the match with all their mates. How likely is that for a Premiership match?

My son (aged 20) brought his friend (who's a Man U fan) to the Birmingham game. Sitting in the Paddocks he couldn't believe how close he was to the action and that he could actually hear Marti's convos with the players. Very different to the Old Trafford experience. He had a cracking time and I'll bet he'd be keen to come again.

Started to go a lot more away games this season and it really is a collective .
Yesterday was superb again. Not overly impressed with the ground or their support.
Some Swansea knob heads also Try’d to start a ruck on the way out of the ground.
Norf was sitting behind me and the poor sod was really suffering in those last ten minutes.
In fairness , we all were .
Finally that wind whipping round us was brass monkeys.🥶

Can't think i've been anything special based on the first few months of the season...still went but never felt more disillusioned and miserable.

Yes indeed.
Earlier in the season we had a couple of workmen here in Chateau Despair. “Oo you support then mate?” Said one “QPR” I said rather glumly.
Now I'd be puffing my chest out and saying “QUEENS PARK RANGERS mate”

I was thinking the very same thing yesterday.

The support has been tremendous and far from the 'fair weather' positivity that many clubs are limited to. I have been pleasantly amazed at how we have got behind the team this season.

When I hear the manager and players thanking the fans in the post-match interviews, you can tell they mean it. Really proud to be an R at the moment!

Now watch them go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like........"Season ticket prices always had to go up at some time and due to the recent increase in demand we think that time has come"

That would be typical QPR to destroy any feel good factor in one fell swoop !

What about the 75/76 season?
My mind may be playing tricks on me (it comes with age!) but the ground seemed pretty full most weeks.

Plus a sell out today and Leeds at home should push that average up a further 250.
