Briatore's QPR Featured in "Hello Magazine"...Ainsworth Urges Support...Trialing With Swansea...Rowlands NOT Called up...Stefan Moore at Kidderminster

With the current financial situation, have to wonder about the future (or importance)of such items and focus on the "Beautiful People." (On the other hand, might be argued that it's in precisely such times, that people want to be distracted, etc.

As noted on a couple of QPR messageboards, in the current issue of Hello Magazine
"FLAVIO BRIATORE invites us to join celebrity guests at a high-octane party at QPR" Hello

Meanwile on the Official Site, QPR player Coach, Gareth Ainsworth, repeats the thrust of what he was saying in this week's Kilburn Times -

The message is clear from Gareth Ainsworth: 'Let's remember how far we've come.'
As the R's preparations continue ahead of the visit of Nottingham Forest to Loftus Road next Saturday, the Rangers Player / Coach has hit back at the small minority of fans who he believes have 'forgotten how far the Club has come' over the last 12 months or so.
"We've come a long way in a short space of time and we need to remember that," Ainsworth told www.qpr.co.uk.
"You come across people in football who seem to have daily or weekly opinions which change as often as the weather - it's crazy."
Despite a recent blip, which has seen the R's pick up just one point from four Championship fixtures, Ainsworth believes the Super Hoops are on the right path to building 'something special' in W12.
"QPR is a fantastic place to be, and thankfully the majority of the fans have still got their feet on the ground," he said.
"They recognise that we are slowly building something special here. Unfortunately, there's a minority who have got carried away by the expectations surrounding the Club."
Ainsworth added: "A couple of years ago we were fighting relegation and the fans were unbelievable - right behind us.
"I remember hobbling off at Loftus Road after breaking my leg against Luton. I looked at the crowd, and the fans were giving me the clinched fist - the place was just buzzing. It was like we were going for promotion that day. Yet last month we slipped to fifth in the table and a small minority booed us off!
"I know the majority of the fans will make themselves heard and get behind us. That's what we need. Intimidate the opposition, support the R's and we'll do our best to make you proud." QPR

Kidderminster Harriers Official Site - Harrier Make Moore Deal
KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS can this afternoon confirm the short-term signing of former Aston Villa and QPR striker Stefan Moore.
The 25 year-old has spent the last couple of weeks training with the club, and penned a deal at Aggborough this lunchtime that will see him stay for at least a the next month.
Moore began his career Villa along side brother Luke, and was Captain of the youth side that won the FA Youth Cup back in 2002.
He progressed through to the first-team with the Premiership outfit and made 22 appearances, scoring twice before leaving in 2005 to join QPR.
The striker has spent time out on loan at the likes of Leicester City, Milwall and Port Vale, and most recently featured for League One side Walsall last season, scoring on his debut.
"Stefan will stay with us for a month initially, with a view to something longer after that," boss Mark Yates told harriers.co.uk.
"We've offered him a deal we could afford, but it's not really been an issue of money for him, he just wants to be involved with what we're trying to do and prove that he's a good player
Stefan goes straight into the squad for Harriers' home game against Ebbsfleet United at Aggborough in the Blue Square Premier tomorrow (3.00pm).Site
