Brian Glanville/World Soccer - on QPR
- "....Visiting Queens Park Rangers, as one now occasionally does, in sharp contrast with the past – Rodney Marsh, Stan Bowles, Gerry Francis – it is hard not to be struck by the contrast in style. Of the club, rather than the players, though of course there can be no comparison with those past, ebullient teams.
- Even the Blackpool manager, ex-manager of QPR. Ian Holloway, expressed his disgust at the flooded condition of the away dressing room. And though the club is now allegedly graced by the presence of two hugely rich men, Mittal and Ecclestone, while their highly active Flavio Briatore of F1 is hardly a church mouse, all sorts of controversial changes, to raise or save money, have been implemented.
- Under Briatore’s regime, managers have come and gone with alarming speed. Iain Dowie, after his misadventures at Charlton (losing a million pound action to Crystal Palace’s supreme, Simon Jordan) and Coventry, was sacked with two years of his contract to run.
- Paulo Sousa, once a Portugal star, was on his way in short order, having seemingly offended by admitting that he hadn’t wanted his striker, Dexter Blackstock, to be loaned to Nottingham Forest; to whom he has now been definitely sold.
- Now, here is the amiable Jim Magilton, to whom one can only wish success. What happens to the press is of no consequence to the punters, but it may be indicative that the press box, for many years, in the South Africa stand, comprising numerous rows, has been dismally truncated into a couple of tows at the very back of the stand, easy to negotiate should you happen to be anorexic. But looking at the public seats which now supersede the old press box, there seemed to be very few spectators there. All credit to QPR for providing press food before the kick off, but where, for many a long year, half time meant sandwiches and tea, the pressroom now is a desert. Not a sandwich to be seen, and use a kettle and tea bag. Mere straws in the wind, these, but they do contribute to a picture of minuscule economies. Why, with such magnates in the background?

- Jim Magilton is expecting another tough test in the second round of the Carling Cup, after last night's draw pitted the R's against Accrington Stanley.
- Accrington knocked out higher league opposition, in the shape of Walsall, in round one and Magilton is wary of the threat posed by the League Two side.
- Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, the R's gaffer said: "I'm happy we've got a home draw.
- "It'll be nice to be at Loftus Road, especially when you take into account the travelling we've got in the early part of the season.
- "This competition is one we want to progress in, but it won't be easy against a good Accrington side. I know John Coleman very, very well and he'll be looking to come here and cause an upset, that's for sure. QPR
