Kevin Bond: Faces an uphill task to help Harry Redknapp keep QPR afloat

Supporters showed their frustration following Sunday's 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool, but Bond believes they will continue to give their backing, despite Rangers' increasingly desperate plight.

"The fans were disappointed and frustrated at the Liverpool game, and they were entitled to be," he said.

"But what I've noticed about our fans is that it doesn't need much from us at all for them to get right behind us.

"One attack, one shot on goal and they're cheering us, getting behind us and encouraging us. It's absolutely fantastic.

"We are in a difficult situation, it's a difficult time, but if we're going to get out of it then we're going to do it as a group. All together. The lot of us. As a club. And that certainly includes the supporters."

QPR head into Wednesday night's derby clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge eight points from safety but Bond insisted lessons had been learned from the Liverpool defeat.

"We analysed and reflected on the match straight after the game," he said. "With that in mind, we will put things in place to make sure we give a better account of ourselves tonight.

"We have put the Liverpool game behind us but it's not forgotten about."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
