While it is certainly true that Rangers were pre-season favourites for promotion it is hard to see why. Clearly the bookies had not witnessed the disharmonic, shambolic performances that marked the preceding season. QPR may have bought on reputation on occassion, it seems the bookmakers produce odds in the same way. 'QPR gave what they give best, a battling performance' is not something a Rangers fan would expect to see written about his team in the 2 seasons in the top division. In that respect, a great improvement was seen and one all of us at Loftus Road want to see maintained going forward. Finally, it mustn't be forgotten that football should be about glory and drama and last Saturday was certainly that,

England have crappy WC, QPR have strong start to season, and courtesy of the easiest opening 6 fixtures in Prem League history, end ip on top of the league table. Hodgson, found pictured between the legs of the FA secretary, after a boozy night out, after a post WC England friendly game. Papers start their Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!' pied-piper call, culminating in Old-Pidgeon neck being named The new manager of Blighty !

Look on the bright side, you can moan about Harry Redknapp every day now. The rest of media love him apparently, but you are different.

QPR were relegated last season, relegated from the premier league, so compared to other clubs it stands to reason that they would have more players with premier league experience, especially when they have the likes of Richard Dunne, Rob Green, Joey Barton, SWP and Jenas who I imagine could account for almost half of those appearances. And the finances are from last year. So comparing what the club paid when in the premier league compared to where they are playing now seems quite an unfair criticism. It's worth noting that Fulham also pay as much in wages as Atletico and Dortmund. Derby are bailed each year by their owner, Leicester are in massive debt as well. But focus solely on QPR eh, low hanging fruit I guess.

"QPR's Wealth Of Experience Finally Tells..." everyone knows that "Of Experience" is superfluous in the title of the article F365, so cut the cr*p, eh?

There ought to a meeting within the Premier League where it gets decided that all 19 of the other teams next season *must* make it their sworn duty to batter QPR in every game next season. Here's hoping they're well over 6 points adrift by Xmas. In fact so far that basically the FA relegate them early.

Editor, nice piece of devil's advocacy. How are you supposed to cancel big contracts that are needed for the PL all of a sudden. The rules should allow for adjustment and contracts to run out etc. The parachute payments now have a tolerance of 4 years extended from 2. This common sense approach should also be applied and the limit of £8 million debt maybe raised. Popular? Other fan's biased opinions matter naff all!
