Chelsea Tickets available
at 17:55 1 Jan 2013

Due to wife's accident I have two tickets available - one adult, one OAP.

Not looking for face value, just reasonable offer from genuine Rrrss fans wanting to support the team. Row 4 Upper Shed. My daughter will bring the tickets to the match. Please PM me if interested.

Football Hatred
at 12:30 18 May 2012

If we could harness it we wouldn't need fossil fuels.

Brentford hate QPR
QPR hate Chelsea
Blackburn hate themselves
Many hate Man Utd, referees, linos, FIFA and the FA
Celtic hate Rangers and vice versa
Scots hate England and that's reciprocated

and so it goes on.

What is it with football and football fans?
It's special isn't it?

Hockey is a sport with strange rules. But starting the second half without half the GB team on the pitch takes the biscuit.

The Real Reason
at 10:53 15 Mar 2012

This is the number of players each club has used so far in PL matches

QPR..........35
Man Utd.....31
Blackburn...30
Arsenal......29
Everton.....29
Bolton.......28
Wolves......28
Tottenham..27
Chelsea......26
Swansea.....26
Fulham.......25
Newcastle...25
Norwich......25
Sunderland..25
Aston Villa..24
Man City....24
West Brom..24
Stoke.........23
Wigan........23
Liverpool....22

These days everyone seems to want to find a scapegoat. We live in the age of the blame game. Booing and chanting insults at our own players is idiotic, counter productive behaviour that can only further reduce players confidence, and the connection between the players and fans.

It is not about the players being overpaid or not caring. Things would be exactly the same if they were earning 1% of their current wages. They are competing against players on similar contracts, from the same backgrounds and having gone through the same struggles to get to the top. These players have got to the PL by being highly competitive individuals. Why would they jack it in now? It makes no sense.

Neither do they have a losing mentality. Bolton have lost three more matches than us. Were they suffering from a losing mentality? It's a stupid idea.

Last season we used a total of 24 players, and a core of 17. Various circumstances have resulted in too many changes in the playing personnel over the last year. We have only once fielded the same team two games running, Newcastle at home and Wolves away. Not surprisingly we have struggled to build an effective team. You can't expect players to perform at their best in these circumstances. A high turnover of players is a classic way of failing in any league.

Don't blame the players, in fact don't blame anyone. It's history.

The best thing any QPR supporter can do is get behind all of the team, the manager and the owners. Teams have got out of trickier situations than we are in.

Just my opinion.

SAFETY
at 14:17 6 Mar 2012

There have been some misleading message board threads knocking about on what is needed for Premier League safety. Previous seasons stats show that the task of staying above the relegation zone is not as difficult as some make out. With 11 games to go the 17th team would have needed only 7 more points in 2010, 7 extra points in 2009 and 9 more points in 2006. The most required was another 14 points in 2008. The average over six seasons is 10 points from those 11 games.

Safe points.....Bottom 4 after 27 games....17th needed for safety
2012.....x..........22 I 22 20 20..................x
2011...40 pts......28 I 28 27 25.................12
2010...31 pts......24 I 24 23 19..................7
2009...35 pts......28 I 27 26 22..................7
2008...37 pts......23 I 22 19 9..................14
2007...39 pts......26 I 20 20 19.................13
2006...35 pts......26 I 23 18 10..................9
2005...34 pts............................average 10
2004...34 pts.......not available...
2003...43 pts.........................
2002...37 pts.........................

Of course that is what has happened in the past and is not necessarily a good guide to what will happen this season. If two of the teams below us take off on a good run it is a different ball game. Personally I don't think that is likely to happen. One team maybe, but not two. Bolton, Blackburn and Wolves have to play each other in March and two are unlikely to emerge from those games with a head of steam.

With a good Goal Difference you can take one point off the targets.

On the basis of these stats 32 points and maintaining a better GD will be enough. Going down with 36 or more points would be very unlikely.

David Sullivan In Conversation - V. Informative
at 11:09 23 Feb 2012

http://www.westhamtillidie.com/2012/02/21/in-conversation-with-david-sullivan-pa

One of the more frank and informative interviews I have ever read from a football club owner. Interesting stuff about individual players, transfers, wages, club finances, Tony Fernandes, Olympic Stadium and many other topics. Of course you may have doubts about some of the things he says but definitely worth a look.
The interview is in 8 parts and most of the interesting stuff is in the early parts.
