"....QPR have come back before, and they will hopefully do so again. Of course, the last time it took 15 years before our Premier League return… Promises and plans are nice but QPR fans look to deeds not words. In the end, though, the essence of being a fan is that however low we sink, QPR will always be our club.
For fans, QPR are the club we love and support. QPR are not ‘a project’. QPR are not ‘a brand’. Fans are not going to switch to another, but nor do they want the club to be transmuted or transformed into something very different.
Owners may have different views. This week, EuroMoney published a profile of QPR’s prodigiously multi-tasking chairman, Tony Fernandes. Fernandes declared: ‘QPR has enormous branding potential and has helped AirAsia tremendously.. .’
It’s five years to the day, that then QPR chairman Flavio Briatore, who repeatedly referred to QPR as ‘a project’ said of QPR: ‘I want to create an international brand and I believe we have the possibility.’
Fans with slightly longer memories will recall the efforts of chairman Gregory to merge QPR with Brentford; of chairman Bulstrode to merge the club with Fulham; of chairman Wright’s announcement of a merger with Wimbledon – and even chairman Paladini being forced to deny that QPR were becoming a feeder club for Chelsea...."
