You could say the same about reopening Mcdonalds and Greggs, it's only a takeaway service but it's something people enjoy and want to have again.

Golf resumed a few weeks ago and some Rugby League has restarted without any of the questions or media scrutiny that football seems to be having

Last 10 years
at 08:02 28 May 2020

We've had some bad and miserable times in the last 10 years but also some very good ones, every season has had highs making them worth it

2009/10 - Win at Palace to keep us up
2010/11 - The whole thing
2011/12 - Beating Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs, Everton away, the 2 City games
2012/13 - Some of Remy's performances, beating Chelsea away
2013/14 - Yeovil awayday, playoffs
2014/15 - First half of the season at home was really good those home games against Leicester, Burnley, Villa, Liverpool and City all really exciting
2015/16 & 2016/17 - A bit shit really
2017/18 - Better stuff, enjoyed that Holloway team and the emergence of youngsters suc as Bright, Smyth and Eze
2018/19 - That cup run and the form in October - December was very exciting
2019/20 - Loved it all so far

It's not been that bad and we shouldn't be so down on ourselves only focussing on the many bad points of the last 10 years. If you did the 10 years before it was genuinely a lot worse bar 3 seasons with Holloway

i'm QPR I wouldn't want to be anyone else.

I think the at the Boris Johnson daily briefing thing the other week they said that crowds would be allowed back at Sporting venues in phase 3 which is July/August time which will probably mean we can go to the playoff final

problem is if you sack off this season to save yourself what changes in August to let you start a new one? The training and playing issues will be exactly the same.

You would think all of the top half will want to play on so just takes 2 teams in the bottom half to agree and we carry on playing.

Bradley Allen scored a similar goal at the same end in the early 90's

Deeney's concerns are understandable as his kid has breathing difficulties so he should be allowed to give it a miss, there will be others like him as well, no one should be forced to play.

Did match reports, stats, previews, a hall of fame, basically what Clive does without the insight and humour

yeah I did have one from the club threatening legal action against using pictures of games so I recreated games using my Subbuteo set from when I was a kid which worked well but was a right pain using photoshop to redo the kits so just stopped using them.

That sort of stuff I think is easy to brush off but i found the other bits too much for me

Blimey thats all quite scary. I've seen some of the stuff aimed at Clive on twitter but the personal bits are horrible and has brought it all back for me.

Many moons ago I used to run my own QPR website (1998-2009 RIP) and to be honest for the first 5/6 years all the feedback I got was very nice and supportive but then it all got a bit sinister and I had emails to me having a go at me for robbing the club of money which was bollox as I genuinely didn't make a penny from the site, it ended up costing me a few grand over the years to run it.

I also had stuff like I know where you drink before games and I'm gonna kill you etc and the worst of them was they knew my wife, who I always went to games with, and were going to give her the seeing to she deserved so all quite unsettling especially as it was to my own email as this was pre social media so I didn't really know what to do. I think if it happened now I'd have a better idea of what to do but back then I did nothing, didn't even tell the wife at the time and just became very anxious about it all and avoided pubs with loads of QPR fans in before away games going to quieter spots.

I'd have some people come upto me at games saying they liked the website and a general chat about QPR which was nice but I was always very wary of them and came across as a right arsehole most of the time as I didn't know who had been having a pop at me and if this was all part of it. It was part of the reason I knocked the site on the head in the end as it all got a bit to much for me and after having kids I didn't want people targeting them. I do look back now and think I should have said something but I didn't want them to know they were getting to me so always tried to ignore them and not let them know they were getting to me, didn't work though.

I certainly couldn't have coped mentally doing it during the social media age where people can send messages to my phone any time day or night abusing me. one bloke non stop harassing me after every game about Holloway last season brought it all back and left me feeling very anxious again.

So fair play to Clive, Dave Thomas, Finney and anyone else who have to deal with this now, supporting a football team and trying to give something back such as a podcast, fanzine, website etc shouldn't make you a target in this way.

yeah as much fun as those last few home games and the City game were if we had gone down that season with Warnock and possibly even sacked him that summer, with the money we had we could have really built something. Only have to look a Burnley and Leicester to see what can be achieved

Always thought Onouha was poorly treated after we went up in 2014, hardly played the following season and when he did was out of position at right back

I can't remember what show I saw this on but an agent was saying that contracts ending are basically a months notice so they still get paid for a month and can train at the club using gym facilities etc whilst they find a new club so extending them by a month or 2 shouldn't be a massive issue

6 positive test out of over 700 is not too bad, as long as they follow the protocols it should be OK. The problem for players won't be what clubs do with training it will be team mates ignoring the rules and going out to parties

really enjoyed it, Paul Merson was so good on it and amazing to see how far he has come in the last year. Also thought Seaman was quite funny in it when the nudist team turned up. Tonight's is also very good, Lee Hendrie speaks about his problems which is quite shocking
