- Amit Bhatia is already looking forward to the start of the 2009/10 Coca Cola Championship campaign.
- Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk from the United States, where he is currently on business, the QPR Holdings Ltd Vice Chairman revealed he is counting down the days to the new season.
- "I'm missing the football already," he said.
- "Of course we'd love to be involved in the play-off's right now, but it wasn't to be this year, but that doesn't mean we won't be involved in the shake up for promotion in 2009/10."
- Bhatia added: "We've made fine progress this season.
= "Our final point's total of 61 is the best we've registered in recent seasons and I firmly believe we've got a squad that can compete in the upper echelons of the Championship.
- "We were very unlucky with injuries last season. We lost key players throughout the season, but we still occupied a top half place for the duration of the campaign, so if we can keep everyone fit, we'll have a great chance to progress even further over the next 12 months."
- Bhatia revealed that the search for a new boss is a 'top priority' of the Board, and that talks are on-going with a number of interested applicants.
- "We've talked to a lot of people and we're nearly there," he said.

- "We didn't want to rush into making an appointment, because we know just how important this decision is.
- "It affects everyone connected to the Football Club; the Board, the staff, the fans. It's a crucial decision."
- With the Early Bird Season Ticket deadline looming, Bhatia also touched upon the role the QPR supporters will play next season, adding: "There were many highs and lows last season, but the fans stood by us through it all.
- "I've said it before and I'll happily say it again, the fans are our twelfth man, be it home or away, and their support is vital.
- "The atmosphere at Loftus Road is up there with the very best I've ever witnessed and I can't wait to see the ground rocking again at the start of the season."

BEAT THE DEADLINE! QPR supporters are reminded that the Early Bird Season Ticket deadline of May 17th is fast approaching. For more information on the latest Season Ticket news, click here QPR
