600 test wickets. An absolute legend. I was at Lords when he took his 500th three years ago and he received a magnificent standing ovation. Such a shame that only around 100 people or so would have witnessed such a magnificent achievement. Onwards to 700 now.

God, I’m so bored. Painting doors today and watching them dry! Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored!

Today we had the following stats:
Shots on target 10
Swansea had 11 shots and 3 on target and 7 corners
When we played them in August our stats were:
On Target 10
Swansea had 10 shots of which 5 were on target with 2 corners
And I remember coming out of LR after the game in August thinking that on another day we would have got a hatful against them with loads of good chances blocked. All came home to roost today.

Ilias Chair. I’ve been watching Rangers since 1972 on a regular basis and this will say, despite the opposition, because you cannot choose the opposition that was the most complete individual performance I have seen from a QPR player. He was absolutely untouchable, popping up all over the place. Swansea just did not know how to play him and nobody got near him except for Gat anti-footballing number six who decided that the only option was to hack him down from behind after he had beaten four players leaving them trailing In his wake.
I enjoyed this game more than the Cardiff game, partly because it was with a lot ke second string players but also because it showed that if we did lose Eze then we can more than cope. Would just love to see Eze, Chair and Samuel together for at least the rest of the season. In those three I reckon we have the best three outstanding talents in the championship.

This could be very embarrassing for Southampton

Well actually that’s a lie. Standing in a queue for South Bermondsey station, not been held back by the old bill but the lack of trains. Sort it out Corbyn you caarrnt!
Solid win if unspectacular, much the better team, but complacent at times and did well to get that second goal straight off as it’s never an easy place to come to. Great fûck up by their keeper, nice it cost them the game unlike Lumley’s blooper. Last 20 Millwall reverted to type and just lobbed it forward to Smith who has definitely lost his pace since he left us. I said after the Swansea game that we would play a lot worse and win. We did and we won. 4th place is a nice place to be but not as nice as South Bermondsey in the early Autumn sunshine!
Still queuing by the way!

If you really are anti these types of sports I suggest you don’t watch the Scotland v Belgium game!🤣

We’re going to have some fun watching these two hopefully for at least one season. I can see a nice little partnership developing between them and two totally different styles but both fantastic individual footballers. And they can only get better.

And well worth the £15 for the ticket. Two teams that wanted to play football the right way and plenty of chances on both sides. If this is pretty much our second string then we are going to have some fun this season. For Saturday I would have Chair in for Scowen and maybe Smith for Amos. Warburton has certainly got a group of players that want to win and play for each other.
Was great to see Wells back at his best, Manning is looking better and better at left back. First time I’ve seen Ball and he looks solid enough, firstly playing on the right of a defensive three and then at right back. The only player I wasn’t sure about was Kelly. Thought he should have got the free kick although had no chance with their other two goals. Forget about the scoreline, this was no dress rehearsal for Saturday unless both teams do decide to go hell for leather, but if they did then it will be one hell of a game.

If you haven’t seen it yet then at least try and catch the end, a small tribute to Kiyan Prince.

Thoroughly enjoyable performance by Rangers. Looked a very good side going forward and another day could have had three or four. Totally dominated after the break and the only shot I can remember Huddersfield having was the penalty. Only whinge I have was the two free kicks. Would love to have seen Chair or Eze take them, especially with the wind behind them. Chair when he came on looked very tidy and very difficult to pick up and took players away from Eze which freed him up, Kane looked different class at full back and looks like a great bit of business. Barbet and Hall solid in the middle and happy to play the ball, Amos still looks a bit rusty to me but given time he looks like a great asset, Hugill certainly will leave everything on the pitch, BOS will get better and better. Manning now looks like a left back and a good one at that. All in all Warburton has put what looks like a side that will cause many a team some problems this season.

Following on from FredManRaves post where his son has recently been diagnosed with T1 Diabetes, it just so happened that my company at the start of July embarked on a 1million step challenge in order to raise funds for Diabetes UK. There are four of us in the business and to be honest by the end of September when the challenge finishes I would like to think we will achieve 3million steps.
The inspiration behind this relates to my personal trainer, Hollie who is only 24 and was diagnosed with T1 at the age of 10. Hollie has recently had her second daughter. Her diabetes has caused her sight issues and also she has a renal check once a year. Her own personal condition has prevented her from obtaining life assurance, which with a young family is essential for both her and her partner. I have worked with her for the last two years and the result is that I have gone from a fat 51 year old topping 19 stone to a slim, toned 53 year old weighing in at around 14 stone. She has been a real inspiration to me. She never moans or complains about her condition and both her pregnancies have been far from easy.
So below is a link and I know that as a community on this board, us brotherhood of R's have been generous over the years to various causes, so please, even if it is a fiver, the donation will be more than appreciated.
Many thanks in advance. UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRR'SSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS. Clive, could you make this a sticky for a couple of weeks.

Yesterday on my way back home from London my route took me past Old Oak Common to the part that is now being redeveloped by QPR and Genesis Homes. Now given that we are being pretty much hamstrung by these daft FFP rules and BFF Derby County seem to have tried their own evasion tactics does anyone know whether the profits the club will make from the sale of these homes count towards the other all balance sheet of the club allowing a few quid to be spent on players not of the calibre of Joel Lynch?

Three more than went to form the SDP back in 1981. Interesting times for the Labour Party and for politics in general.
