|Out of contract QPR players|
at 07:26 16 Jan 2021
With BOS off I was curious to see who else is out of contract at the end of the season.
The list is;
Guesstimate that that is around £40k p/w: £2m off the playing budget. I wonder if that creates space in the budget to spend those savings or is it more off the debt?
Out of that list, no tears over Cameron and Wallace leaving. Cameron has had his good games and has had his plus points but is clearly done whilst Wallace has been poor to awful (great goal in the Swansea game though!)
Carroll has surely done enough for at least another year or maybe two but could be let go as he is expensive compared to what he brings to the team and might be blocking Bettache/Owens.
Who knows what will happen with the keepers. Maybe they will sell Dieng and if both Barnes and Lumley sign contracts, then I fear Seny will be off.
Holding out hope that Charlie Owens works out as he looks like he can pass the ball and play forward, he has had terrible luck with injury.
Following season, Kane, Barbet, Ball and Albert’s contracts are up so again more space.
Everyone else, thankfully, is on a long term contracts and have to give credit to Les on that one.
Let’s hope the next round of recruitment is a successful one as ultimately, that is the key to our success and trajectory over the next period.

If you can put up with Bullard then maybe worth a watch

A friend of mine is a bit of a multi talented fella. He is a Dr. of his profession, has written more books than I’ve read, is a keen archer, has kept bees and recently sent me a video of him playing the bag pipes!!
I feel like a bit of a talentless fella compared to him but got me wondering, what talents you lot or people you know may have, hidden or not?
|Palace v Sheff Utd|
at 13:25 2 Jan 2021
Feel a bit lost with the match v Luton postponed so going to watch this and hope Palace don’t lose to Sheffield United so our record of most games without a win in the Premier League goes!
Going to go 2-1 to Palace. Eze with the winner in the 89th minute!

This isn't a thread for a rear of the year wish list but one where a time machine has been invited, money is no object and West London is your oyster.
If you had to cobble together a 'Best of' QPR who and what would it be? Not just players but off the pitch as well, not just your era but all time:
Favourite other non-playing QPR person:
Mr. or Mrs QPR:

If Carlsberg did Home games...:
If Carlsberg did Away games....:
Favourite transfer rumour:
Every goal should be a carbon copy of:
Best seat in the house:
Best place to get food:
Best of the rest:

Baring a 20 goal swing between us and Luton, and with Wigan’s points deduction, aren’t we now safe?

|Broncos v Bunnies - Match Thread|
at 08:47 20 Mar 2020
Following on from a cracker between St. George & Penrith, a bit of live sport for us on SKY. NRL is fantastic anyways so hunger down for a feast of brutality & bravery, skill and speed (said in he scent of Eddie Izzard speaking French)
Broncos is the only game I’ve been to out there and they lost that day to Gold Coast which was a bit like QPR winning at Brentford. Still ended up supporting Manly as that place is a bit of heaven.
Even though the Bunnies are now Burgess-less, I still see them winning this by 8-12.

|Bilbao v Osasuna|
at 18:00 14 Feb 2020
After the Stoke game, me, my mum and son are hot footing it to Gatwick to catch a flight to Bilbao. Their birthdays are close together so this is my (self indulgent) present!!
Any advice for Bilbao?
Going to do stadium tour, match, dinner and then on Monday, a city tour and trip to Guggenheim.
|3 F'ing things left this season - FA Cup, Fulham and Final place|
at 14:38 13 Jan 2020
After blowing the chance of some local bragging rights, aside from watching some the younger players bloon, this sesaon feels a bit m'eh already.
On the pitch, I think there is three things left for us be interested in; FA Cup run, Fulham at Home and where we finish.
So what are your predictions?
FA Cup - Quarter Finals
Fulham - Score draw
Final Place - 14th
|Favourite QPR photos of all time |
at 22:52 25 Mar 2019
Apologies if Spackman...
Thinking of doing a section on the radio show about favourite QPR photos ever. I’ve got one of me at the playoffs that perfectly captured my euphoria.
QPR player wise it’s probably...
What are yours?
p.s. where do I find that picture of a toothless,
‘Guinness’ shirt wearing fan?
p.p.s having a mare embedding with my phone!! Will sort tomorrow!! Who clicks links these days? So 2013

I know a few on here (Clive, Mr Sheen) like Rugby League and it’s back!
I watched London Broncos in their play offs last season and decided to get a season ticket. Most games are Thursday evening or Sunday afternoon. Cost us £130 and junior £20 which I thought was reasonable for a few days out in Ealing.
Hoping London can stay up but it’s going to be tough.

Thanks to Clive for letting me promote the podcast we do on Love Sport Radio.
It's been put up before but the reason I'm bringing it up again is because we now host the show on SoundCloud which means you don't have to sit through the ads or any other chaff!
Latest show featuring Andy Sinton and a chat with Sheffield United fan Ben Humphreys, can be found here:
We've had good callers over the last few months including Marc Bircham, Clint Hill, Shaun Derry, Lee Cook, Martin Rowlands and others.
Planning to put all the old shows up in SoundCloud in chronological order at some point in the near future.
Best place to hear about the pod is at:

|QPR's record in West London Derbies since 2000|
at 18:58 24 Apr 2018
Stating the obvious but our record in West London derbies since 2000 is shockingly bad. I wondered just how bad so checked out the head to heads.
P 35 W 7 D 9 L 19
Not much fun for the fans!!
In the last 21 games (7 games v Brentford, Fulham and Chelsea) We've won 4, drawn 4 and lost 13!
|Sean Goss getting good reviews |
at 21:44 24 Jan 2018
Not really had a chance here but seems to have started well at Rangers.
Is he not good enough, doesn’t fit the system, needs toughening up or not an Olly/Birch type player?
Hope he can get good game time in the SPL and come back to force his way into the first team picture.
I’m not overly convinced that our midfield theee or the system is all it’s cracked up to be and the likes of Goss, Manning and Cousins could be of value if there’s room.
