Question for QPR historians
at 18:56 21 Nov 2021

How many different grounds have we had? I'm thinking seven or nine, but both could be wrong.

A nod to Charlie

He wasn't on long, and didn't do a lot, but he made a difference. We tend to forget how young Willock, Chair and Dykes are. Having an old head like Austin come on to settle things down, and see out the game is very important. Nicely done Chas..

Glad to see management is ahead of the game.

Jordy de Wijs
at 00:20 13 May 2021

There's been a lot of speculation on whether we'll be able to keep our other loanees, but not a lot on de Wijs. The feeling seems to be, given his injury history, that he's ours if we want him. But is that so? Do the terms of his loan give us a straight option like that? Hull are promoted, wouldn't a CB with half a season's Championship experience be an obvious asset for them?

Chris Willock
at 23:24 1 Feb 2021

Though I wouldn't argue with the consensus that Dickie is our best young find of the season, to me Willock isn't far behind him. I'm guessing there's a reason he never seems to get 90 minutes, and find it a bit strange that, like Eze, he hasn't been able to establish himself at a club anywhere yet. But based on what he's shown so far he seems like a real find on either wing. It seems ages since we've had someone who can cross a ball from either side (is he better from the right? Not sure.) I'm really looking forward to seeing how he develops over the next couple of years.

Leagues as usual? Check out the Russian Hockey League
at 21:47 23 Sep 2020

We may miss full, or even half full stadiums, and canned crowd noises sound silly but do nothing and this is what Covid can do to pro-sports teams and their players:

While the NHL carefully conducts the 2019-20 Stanley Cup Final in a quarantined bubble in Edmonton, the KHL is already well into its 2020-21 regular season. In the face of a global pandemic, the KHL felt they were prepared to conduct a full-fledged season, with inter-country travel and fans in arenas.
The KHL pushed ahead with their plans despite 116 KHL players testing positive for COVID-19 heading into the regular season.
Already, the KHL has run into significant problems, with multiple teams reporting positive COVID-19 cases. For instance, the lone Latvian team in the league, Dinamo Riga, was unable to complete their first road trip through Russia when one of their opponents, Barys Astana, reported 12 cases of COVID-19, causing the game to be postponed. When they returned to Latvia, Riga reported five positive cases of their own, with government officials enforcing a quarantine and demanded that more games be postponed.

Earlier this week, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl forfeited a game against Kunlun Red Star when they simply didn’t show up. Lokomotiv hasn’t confirmed how many positive cases they’ve had, but the entire team has been quarantined.

In most cases, KHL teams with positive COVID-19 cases are not being quarantined and are instead simply replacing their sick players with players from their junior teams.
Reports indicate that “more than half” of the roster for SKA tested positive for COVID-19, as did their coaching staff ahead of their game against Sibir on Wednesday. As a result, SKA iced the youngest lineup in KHL history, as 10 players made their KHL debut.

With no coaches available, SKA’s billionaire vice president, Roman Rotenberg, stepped behind the bench as head coach.
It’s incredible that the game even went ahead as scheduled given these circumstances. The league has been criticized for forcing through games with junior players as well as their decision to hand Finland-based Jokerit Helsinki a forfeit loss when they refused to travel to Minsk, Belarus in the midst of their political unrest.
In addition, the KHL's decision to have fans in arenas without enforcing strict social-distancing or masks seems extremely foolhardy.

Contracting COVID-19 could have unforeseen consequences, as scientists are as yet unsure of the long-term effects of the virus.
Meanwhile, the NHL should be paying close attention to the troubles the KHL is having with their regular season as they make plans for their own 2020-21 season. They simply can’t be as blasé to the dangers of COVID-19 as the KHL has been.

Defence today
at 20:07 12 Sep 2020

That was the first match in several seasons where my heart wasn't in my mouth every time the oppo had the ball anywhere near our penalty area. Were we dominant? No not quite, but we looked confident, and never panicked, which was a massive improvement.

One game is a small sample, but it really appears something has changed back there, and for the better. We'll know more with a couple more matches under our belts but the signs today were very positive.

Wouldn't be a bad idea. The mint-green change kit can go to the Sally-Ann though.
