    Empty Seats

    I see much like the Peterborough away tickets, the Bristol City away tickets were put on sale initially then quickly pulled, for technical reasons. Not sure if the cause is the same or not. Hopefully either way it gets straightened out for that game and others.

    Non - Brexit

    As a starting point. Intended to broaden into a sharing and developing of technology across a whole range of defence areas. Al with his background will know that it's an industry the UK are significant in, although I know its not everyone's cuppa tea. BAE over at Christchurch will be doing...

    Oven ready like a French ship building contract? ;)

    Chris Hughton

    I know right! :grinning: I've read Forest fans say that football has moved on past Hughton, and that his methods don't work anymore. There maybe truth in that, but how much is down to Hughton and how much is down to Forest's running as a club I guess we'll find out. They do go through managers...

    Congrats

    QPR's players are well versed in the 'dark arts' themselves. Constantly going down at the slightest touch or even with no contact, having Stroud in their pocket meant they got free kicks whenever any QPR player went down and called for it. At first it was odd, then it was comical, later it was...

    Championship 21/22

    Fulham easing past Brum to go top (as probably expected) but otherwise a reasonable set of results. Saturdays opposition go into that off the back of defeat, not sure if that's helpful or not.

    That prat Stroud

    There were a couple of incidents that the East stand linesman gave our way and which Stroud, fully 4 or 5 times further away from the incident than the assistant, overruled in favour of QPR. That's got to be demoralising for a linesman, that your referee thinks he knows better than your...

    Ben Pearson

    The balance of the midfield might have suffered a tad for his not starting - but his introduction was pretty crucial to us holding out.

    Why are West Brom above us?

    Ah well, doesn't really matter right now. Can we stick with or pass them over the season - thats the tricky bit!

    That prat Stroud

    Bloody hell. Incredible. They presumably would prefer the offical laws of the game changed to something like: The referee must keep engineering Queens Park Rangers attacks until they score. That's more or less what Stroud did!

    My dad…

    That prat Stroud

    It's up with the most bizarre displays I've ever seen. Dean, Knight, that ilk. Remarkable that we won the game.

    Mark Warburton

    The ref gave literally every free kick any QPR player called for on the pitch, for any slight or perceived misdemeanour. And even some stuff they didn't (Smith getting booked for the crime of being kicked anyone). Incredible that Warburton could still be left wanting even more to go his way...

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    Again I thought the atmosphere was patchy. A handful of known chants get belted out by the entire stand, and then for long periods inbetween most of the NS is quiet or politely clapping. The Ted shack made some decent sustained noise which was good. I don't know if there's been some changes in...

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    I cannot find the words to describe Stroud's performance. Something going on there.

    Non - Bad driving

    Indeed it's perhaps not so feasible to enforce learners to drive motorways before taking their test, when large areas of the country do not have a motorway anywhere nearby, and would require learners to travel hours. Says more about our infrastructure I suppose...But I remember doing pass plus...

    Cahill for Captain?

    Think back to when Fletch was in and out of the team having to manage his fitness. The armband on the pitch was usually worn by another, but whenever Fletch was playing he gave a natural air of leadership which just added to the side. Similar thing for Cahill I hope.

    Non - Bad driving

    Back when I used to drive in and around London regularly, it was noticeable compared to down here how much more aggressive everyone was. Any kind of gap on the road was fair game no matter how tight, and thus everyone was on each other's bumpers. Used to give me a surprise when I got there, I'd...

    AFC Bournemouth v Queens Park Rangers

    Our net spend over the last 2 seasons is about minus 100m quid. Plenty was spent on players we could later sell if and when we needed. A lot of QPRs spending as you'll know well was pure batshit mental!

    Pre match eats

    Cherries Cafe. If you're early enough it can be a handy place to park on-street in the surrounding side roads as well.
