There have been many occasions over the years on the forums where the efficacy of a captain has been debated and condemnation of those perceived to be less than of the desired level. A case in point was Nedum Onuoha who was supposedly highly rated by the players and the rest of the club yet harshly condemned by many supporters.
Since his departure there have been a number of team captains, none of which have been the old school 'kick, bollock & bite' variety, and during the dark times under Holloway & SMC this was felt to be a partial contributor to the malaise.
IMO the need for this type of captain appears to have faded, in the top two divisions at least; in fact the need for an on pitch screamer and shouter seems to have completely dropped off the radar these days.
These thoughts were occasioned by an observation of the celebrations after Eze's goal against Blackburn where after he ran to the corner with three of his team mates for his little showboating celebration, he then moved to return to his own half but Nahki Wells called the players together for a little huddle first, perhaps to remind them to stay switched on etc. but noticeable none the less as it brought me to the realisation that I have no clue who was named captain for the game. The players are all well drilled in what is required of them and all demonstrate a high level of camaraderie so it would seem the need for a captain has all but disappeared from the side. There are a few obvious leaders on the pitch and, it would appear, a few not so obvious ones. It would seem that QPR are now a collective with responsibilities for them all to be leaders.

By all accounts his wages will be paid by 32 Red whilst he is a Ram and he will wear the 32 shirt. Knowing Mel's aversion to profligacy I am not surprised he has found a way to get a player for little to no outlay which will have no impact on their FFP assessment. At first I thought that the EFL would surely put a stop to it but the thought occurred to me; is this not the same as when the fans paid the players wages at QPR during the dark days? There doesn't appear to be any suggestion of 3rd party ownership so it would seem that Derby are blame free on this one. Thoughts?

It would be great to hear this ringing out across the KPFS... and it's an original and not a copy of another clubs song.
To the Spongebob theme tune...
Who's QPR's right back who came from Swansea ?
Who's Spanish and little and over 30 ?

I am fully aware that almost everyone still thinks of our home ground as Loftus Road,me included TBH, but it would be a nice mark of respect from the fans if they were to adopt it just for this season. It's not a commercial venture gaining publicity here but a very worthy cause voted for by the fans themselves. It shouldn't be too difficult to call it the KPFS for a season when mentioning the ground should it?

Did anyone else see him play for us? Barnsley, last game of the season and Petrasso playing too is all I can remember.

Was anyone on here there during the Q&A with Lee Hoos? Any feedback?
