CHAIRMAN FERNANDES SPEAKS (TWEETS)


  QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes returned last night to the  Twittersphere to speak on the subject of QPR: On lessons learnt Among other things the Chairman spoke about how things now are going to be very different at the club; and that the club is going to very careful about the players that are signed by the QPR. In addition the Chairman himself will be taking a personal, hands-on role regarding player fining!
 
  In a series of tweets, The Chairman declared:


 " Few have gone. Few more to go. Targets Identified. Discipline key for both is season. No more messing"

-
 "Learnt a lot last year. We will not have players who don't fit our culture. And very very careful who we bring in to QPR."

 -
"
In a strange strange way relegation is going to make us a much much better club."
 - 
"Lots and lots of work to do. But boy we have done our homework. Really prepared. Stadium and training ground on the way."
-
"
Players and agents are going to see a very different Tony Fernandes. Those who are committed honest and loyal will see the same."
-
"I will be in charge of player fining system. 4 already fined. No one no one will take us for a ride anymore. Patience is over."

  -
 "The fans come first. I owe it to the fans. We will not let you down. I will leave no stone unturned to ensure that your pride returns as a QPR fan."
-
 "Thank you to all Ranger fans. Season tickets at a record high. We all appreciate it and I shall make sure all involved in qpr ensure you get your moneys worth."
-
   QPR Fans have of course heard many things from a series of Chairmen (including the present one). They will be watching and hoping that these commitments are kept; that words do in fact become deeds; and that "the new QPR" returns to becoming the QPR that many of us remember.  Onwards and Upwards!

QPR defender fires Twitter warning

By Paul Warburton Jul 5 2013

CLINT Hill has warned footballers that Twitter will heap disaster on their heads if they blindly tap away.

The QPR defender watched a sorry litany of team-mates fall foul of the social network last season that only added insult to injury as Rangers departed the Premier League.

Stephane M’Bia, the departed Chris Samba and Jay Bothroyd all posted things they later regretted. Even this week as Rs returned to training, king of Tweets, Joey Barton posted a message that he was going back to a ‘school’ from which he was ‘expelled.’

The midfielder’s future following his loan to Marseille after a 12-game ban last season, is in serious doubt. But there’s none in the mind of Hill over his own Twitter account.


He said: “I tried to get used to it, but I was spending all my time on it. I think I can use the time better with my two kids.

“There’s a market for it, of course there is. But if you’re going in there, you’re going in there with your eyes open and you’ve got to expect everything coming your way.

“I know there’s been a lot of players who got in trouble with things they say on the spur of the moment.

“There’s a lot of people out there who will say things just to get a reaction – and you’ve got to be careful.”
