Up to 9 years ago I used to travel home and away and had a season ticket in the upper loft but my daughter was born and I made the decision to give the season ticket a miss so I could spend Saturdays with her. Did I miss it, Yes but I missed the catch up with friends more than the football at times over the years. I have continued to make it down to a few games a season bringing my daughter & also for the Brentford game last year my son who is 4. I decided to get tickets for the Rotherham game and bring them both down as I thought we might get the result we all wanted despite knowing we could easily give them their only double of the year. I took them to the club shop before and we were lucky enough to get to have a couple of pictures with some of the players being Michael Doherty, Conor and the highlight for the children Jamie Mackie. Jamie is my son’s favourite player and it started via their head teacher who is a Plymouth fan and after presenting him with his birthday card from the school at the assembly the day after the Reading game telling them that he knew “His Daddy would be happy after winning but Jamie was an ex-argyle player” Since then after I taught him the Mackie Wonderland song you can hear him singing to himself as he plays football. You can’t imagine the joy on their faces when Jamie told them “He hoped they enjoyed the day”. Brilliant stuff and something so simple can make children’s days so well done to the players for not doing the old stick the headphones on routine and ignore all around them. After looking around the community day event we met up with a few friends and the children were full of the joys. I bumped into a few old faces and Rosemary asked who they were and I explained they were people I had got to know though the years and she remarked “You seemed to have made a lot of friends through going to football” She was right. Once we saw the Tiger cubs and explaining to Rosemary about what they did made me think that we do have something very special in our corner of W12. On the Tiger cubs I bumped into Chris Charles from the podcast and felt the need to congratulate him on what they had done. It might have sounded very garbled to Chris but it seemed to be the right thing to do as I was very proud of not just my team on Saturday but of the club and fans. I know that people have been saying we have lost our way but if Saturday has anything to go by we are on the way back. To round off the day my wife picked us up from the station where 2 very tired children and 1 knackered adult got into the car and were asked “How was your day” My daughters reply was “It was the best”. Thanks QPR
I see that BT Sport have won exclusive rights to Champions league football until 2021 which means no highlights of games or live coverage on free to air TV. They have said highlights and the final will be available on social media.
After seeing the boxing thread on here earlier about the PPV market it wont be long before they start doing it with football.
I am not that bothered about the CL but what a shame that the so called elite competition in Europe isn't available to watch without paying a subscription.
Apart from our merry band just wondering what set of supporters have impressed you. I went to the Spurs game at the Bobby Zamora Stadium last night and the travelling Gent fans all 10,000 were fantastic where as the Spurs fans I thought were very quiet even when they went 1 up. Millwall's vocal support has always impressed me at HQ too.
As a member I have purchased a ticket for myself and my daughter ( who is also a member) for the Brentford game. What the heck is the £3.50 charge for. The tickets go direct on my membership card and so there is no need for any manual printing off of the tickers and postage costs. So why the charge?? Its a pain in the backside and a complete rip off. Its not just QPR tickets, Go to any concert now and there is an admin fee. They are a bunch of modern day Dick Turpins.
I don't normally watch The Jeremy Kyle show ( too many Chelscum fans on it for my liking) but I saw the advert and it is such a sad story. Such a fall from grace and very sad. Thankfully he finally accepted help and went into a 12 week rehab. I wish him the best of luck
I have to put together a few jokes with a Christmas theme for work. As this board is full of comic genius a little help would be appreciated Remember it's for a work email so the content must be clean.....ish
Cant believe I have just had a phone call from my boss asking me why I have not turned up for work. Has anyone else had an issue with their employer not complying with the rule that if QPR win a cup game the Nation gets a bank holiday.
