The Sun/Karren Brady Diary

"... Wednesday, March 27

A VERY worried friend tells me QPR have lost £93million this season and he has put in £31m.
After losing at Villa Park, they could no longer hide from bitter truth that Harry Redknapp, with bundles of money, might not save them from relegation.
Only players and managers get rich from football, he sighs. Not true. We did sell Birmingham for £82m and could have got out while the going was good. Instead, we’re spending it at West Ham The Sun

- Flashback 13-14 Years, QPR Official Announcement re QPR Supporters Group 

QPR Official Site


This is the new section on the official QPR website for the QPR Supporters Club. News about the Supporters Club will appear in this section shortly.

Latest News from the Supporters Club

We have recently 'adopted' two independent football teams, Accrington Stanley Bowles (ASB for short) who are QPR's internet representatives, and a QPR supporters team who play in a Hayes District Sunday league side, with the idea being to publicise these teams and to encourage more fan participation regarding these sides.

Closer links between the two teams hope to be achieved and at the end of the season there will be a charity football 'extravaganza' between these teams, and hopefully with an LSA team, in which a 'round robin' theme is being looked into.

Here's a statement from Fletcher Easton, who is the Manager of ASB. He explains: "ASB are a group of loyal QPR Supporters banded together many moons ago by the formidable Justin "Juzza" Pieris. Managed by him until three years ago, they dominated the Internet Football League and Cup competitions. In 1998/1999, John Hotti took over from Juzza, who remained part of ASB but further off-spring demanded more time at home.

John, known as Chillie took up the mantle to further ASBs footballing success and so it was that he continued the glory of QPRs successful Internet side by winning the League again and reaching the finals of Worldnet, the FA Cup of the IFA.

The team consists of a group of people unified in one way. Their love for Queens Park Rangers. Had it not been for the formation of the team, it could be said that marriages would not have taken place, friends would have not have been made and QPR's away support would be a little less!

All the internet games are played on a Saturday and mainly against the same opposition as QPR on the same day. For instance, we played Luton before the crazy cup game at Kenilworth Road. Luton are one of the high fliers in the league place third while we are currently at the top of the IFA League. The game ended in 2-2 and proves that Luton (Internet Hatters), ASB and a couple of other sides will be the battlers for the championship this season.

There are now more than 40 Internet teams throughout the country and QPR are probably the first professional club to embrace Internet Football and acknowledge ASB as part of their camp. Now known as an official Supporters team, ASB will continue to carry the flag for QPR and friendly football throughout ours and their travels!

ASB is now managed by myself, known as Zorro - everyone has a nickname and there is a reason for that name, but this one would take too long, just keep an eye on Sky One!

As ever we are always looking to strengthen the team and whether of a Sunday League standard or just a kickabout fan we are always looking to give people a go. After all if you don't try you'll never know. Contact ASB through our website on www.qpr.org/asb or mail myself fletcher.easton@tesco.net.

Volunteers Needed

Are there any fans out there who will have an hour or so to spare before the game against Grimsby on Saturday March 17th? If so, volunteers are needed to help with a bucket collection for the meningitis research foundation charity.

Any help would be much appreciated either contact us on our supporters club email address or come and find one of us at a forthcoming game.

Darts Competition

A Darts Competition has been arranged to take place between the Supporters Club and the Loyal Supporters Association at the White City Community Centre, India Way, W12 on the evening of Friday March 9th. The cost is �per person and all proceeds will be going to the meningitis charity. So if you fancy a game, come along for an enjoyable social evening.
