Queen's Park Rangers Week in Perspective

Players Coming and Going

- Another week closer to the start of the 2011/12 season (and less than two weeks before the 2011/12 Fixtures are released). And another week in which QPR have not strengthened their squad.

A slew of players have been linked in the press as being QPR targets. Some exciting names. Some rather less so. Unfortunately a couple of genuinely-exciting prospects appear to be joining QPR's Championship Promotion Rivals.

QPR this week announced the release of eight players - Gavin Mahon, Georgios Tofas, Josh Parker, Lee Brown, Joe Oastler, Elliott Cox, Romone Rose and Pascal Chimbonda.
and the contract extension of two players: Max Ehmer and Peter Ramage

A Skysports Championship Team of the season included three players from QPR: Paddy Kenny, Clint Hill and Adel Taarabt (and several others who've been linked to QPR!)

- Meanwhile QPR's Adel Taarabt (who continues to be linked to clubs in the UK and abroad), walked out on Morocco this week after he being told he wouldn't start against Algeria.


Not for the first time, some of the major news and gossip occurs off the field.

- In a brief statement on the QPR Official Site, late Friday afternoon, the club announced that they would not be appealing the FA Fines which revolved around the handling of the Faurlin transfer.
(See also the FA Report). That means QPR will paying the 850,000 pound fine and half the FA's costs (and of course QPR have their own lawyers fees to pay.)

Some QPR fans unhappy with current developments, especially Ticket Prices, announced a protest at Loftus Road. Strangely it seems to have attracted no protestors - including the ones announcing the protestors. Reportedly fan groups seeking to express their views directly to the club were told to do it through the Officially-Sanction Official Supporters Club.

- Local journalist, Ben Kosky had an article excoriating the current owners of QPR, Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore.

And in the Non-QPR world: QPR partial owner's Bernie Ecclestone F1 attracted some controversy with the decision to reschedule the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain.

Finally, the Annual QPR Report (hopefully all-encompassing) List of QPR Websites was posted!

A reminder for any who want to share in the memory of QPR Fan Neil Roberts, that next Sunday (June 12) for men "Man on The Run" and Sunday June 26 for women "Race for Life"

Onwards and Upwards!
