  1. The market is so cut throat, QPR sponsor Royal Panda has just announced they will cease UK trading at the end of this month. Will be interesting to see who the next sponsor will be, also whether the name on the shirt disappears in February. If they pull out of the deal and stop paying their contractual payments this will impact on FFP. Rangers are running close to the wind already financially, and still paying their previous FFP fine off. Having said all that, spare a thought for the guys and gals who have been caught up with a spiralling addiction, because all money comes out their accounts electronically it is so hard to keep track. Out of control betting destroys families. The FA should grow a pair and have new rules limiting bookmakers involvement in Football the problem comes if they ban all Gambling sponsorship some clubs could fold .
  2. Fair point Dave, remember when I was young, occasionally the other half would put her foot down and I would be unavailable. Though for me it wasn't football that I missed but usually Cricket. She got the hump with Saturday, Sunday all day and midweek too. Your active sporting life is so short you need to make the most of it.
  3. The players we watch week in week out (weather permitting) , hold full time jobs some working 50-60 hours to make ends meet, chances are they are Dads too, go training 2/3 times a week and play at least once a week. Do you hear them complaining of too many games, I haven't. These guys along with the officials are what real football is about. I assume a fair percentage of contributors on here are past it in playing terms, but would we love to be still chasing our tails to play a game you bet we would. Full time pro's don't know they are born
  4. Was in Bodmin Saturday Morning, walked my dog up at the Beacon, couldn't believe how saturated the ground was. Even said to the person with me that I would be surprised if game was on. Don't think anything dodgy in the postponement
  5. Dec 1961 at Bournemouth Att 1597 QPR scorer was Mike Bottoms, that's the only info I can find Johnny Haynes would have been there too, first £100 per week footballer
  6. FA CUP 0-0 replay at WHL can't quite remember the score LOL, Seriously Spurs won 3-1, was at both games Personally can't recall it, Used to watch reserve Home games so assume it was at Dean Court, Have posted on a couple of QPR websites to see if any one recalls it, will come back to you if any luck Rod was one of my first heroes, R's picked him up for 15k from Fulham. They thought he was finished as he had an ear problem that affected his balance, how wrong they were. Have contacted Dave re Mag,
  7. Have had ridicule about being an R for over 60 years, Was lucky enough to see the good times and a ton of bad ones. Love a bit of friendly banter., water of a ducks back to me , Thanks for the welcome
  8. Saw them win at Bodmin , coming from behind, Shame about the injury a week or so later to the guy who got the wonder goal. Will certainly see them Boxing Day
  9. Hi all, joined earlier today, been scrolling through some really interesting posts on here. It's my first year following Cornish football although I have lived here for 15 years or so. Circumstances now allow me time to follow the sport I have loved for over 60 years, My first love is QPR, my first game was 29th Dec 1956, I still go up for a few games each year. My Cornish team is Wadebridge Town and I have seen most home games this year. I am thoroughly enjoying it although results could have been better. Seeing proper football is like a breath of fresh air, I wish i could have been going a lot earlier, but I am here now and glad I am,
