|RIP QPR supporter Derek Milton|
at 13:35 9 Apr 2021
Derek, who first attended a match with his father in 1947, sat next to me in SA Road for about the last ten years when he and his wife were relocated in the ground. We gradually developed a 90 minute friendship and apart from his wife Catherine, also a season ticket holder, I met his sons and grandsons and he met my daughters when they attended the odd game.
Derek had always supported Rangers over the years and attended many matches when he could. He worked abroad frequently, in the USA, Mexico and was eventually appointed UK Ambassador to Haiti and High Commissioner to Jamaica from 1989-95.
When he retired he became a season ticket holder. He became ill about eighteen months back but still attended when he was well enough up to lockdown. I managed to track him down, through the father of friend of a friend, and wrote to him which developed into an ongoing email conversation about the matches and the club. He would tell me about anything that was in the Guardian and I would tell him the latest rumours on here and help him get the streaming sorted.
I always looked forward to our matchday conversations and I am going to really miss him when we get back to the ground.

Just seen on the offy that they are cramming 3 games into the International break for Scotland and Finland. I hope that MW has been all over the Scotland manager, persuading him not to play Lyndon in all three again.
Last time they did this he came back knackered, missed the first two games after the 'break' and this could have been an instigator of his patchy form and goal drought.

Dickie 8, Ball 8, Kane 7.
Is it after the 37th game that the 10 booking suspension is not enforced?
If so Dickie (and Ball) can only afford one yellow in the next three games Dickie has already served a one match ban for a red, would that increase his sanction if he reached ten?
In addition Kane received a second yellow in a match and served a one match ban. So does that count as seven or eight and would any further sanction, if he reached ten, be increased?
