League Cup and subs
at 10:35 1 Aug 2021

Surprised to see Bournemouth beat MK Dons 5-0 yesterday and that Sheffield Wednesday are at home to Huddersfield today. Is this down to Sky or have these teams obtained special status not to have a midweek game in the first week of the season.

I also noticed that both teams had seven substitutes on the bench and used three and two respectively. Seems that we are going back to the 2019/20 rules, which I think is a bit of a shame for us, now that we have a bigger squad and Charlie who doesn't play 90 minutes very often.

Anyone know why he wasn't involved today? He was sitting in the front of the Directors box.

Do we have any B/U23 fixtures he can get an hour in before Millwall?

Midweek kick offs
at 10:40 21 Apr 2021

Having got used to these 7pm kick offs, I now prefer them and would be happy for them to continue when we are back at the KPFS (Loftus Road) next season.

Pros: more time for a beer or two after, getting home earlier, not having to leave the ground early for those with trains to catch.

Cons: less time to get there for those coming from work, less chance of a meal or some drinks before.

What do other attendees at the matches think?

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.
