Not a laughing matter? This is the club that nearly removed Brentford from the football map. I think its hilarious and I'm not even Panamanian. Why would I want to talk to Mr Hunt? He's not worth talking to and QPR must wish they hadn't.

Seconded I will never forgive them for the agonies they put me through in 67

But I am glad they talked to Mr Hunt he might just get them shut down :sorted:

After yesterday's match, Holloway said, "I think I'm going to cry myself to sleep tonight because I've had my heart ripped out and stamped on."

Ooo, can I stamp on it too? :D

Who wants to call the number on there, if it's a Brizzle accent we put it on here and all call him constantly :D

"We're doing this with a heavy heart. It's a big increase but we've done the sums and there's no other way."

Some methods Brentford tried:
Live within your means
Don't buy players you can't afford
Don't borrow money from loan sharks
Don't pretend the rules don't apply to you generally

The memory of us belt-tightening over and over while QPR blew the bank is a hard one to shake. :mad1:

I won't join in with the general p1$$ taking on this until I hear what Bees United have lined up regarding the refinancing of our debt.

I suspect BFC's marketing team are at this very moment finalising the advertising campaign to entice new supporters to Griffin Park based on the price differential.













Or maybe not....

Talking of amusement at QPR's expense, a few of us had the "pleasure" of a bit of banter with Ian Holloway in the Griffin before last night's match. I asked him why he wasn't at home watching Chelsea on the telly, to which he said he'd rather watch a proper football match! Someone asked him who he was here to watch - Hume and Taylor of Tranmere and Matt Harrold - only thing he knew about him was that he looks like Prince Harry!

We had a discussion on a certain ex-Brentford player - Holloway, understandably stood up for him but agreed that his actions at Loftus Road that night weren't the smartest thing he'd ever done. PJ suggested that the bloke in question's brains were in his feet - and Holloway smiled.

And finally he apologised for being sh*t when he played for us!

Fair play to Ian Holloway. Good to see he knows the difference between a proper football match and the over-paid prima donnas!! He comes across as a man who enjoys his football and good that he could enjoy the banter with opposing fans.

Now if only he didn't manage a bunck of tossers!!! :D

Chairman Bill Power insists the massive rise is needed to avoid another financial crisis at Loftus Road.

He said: "We're doing this with a heavy heart. It's a big increase but we've done the sums and there's no other way.

"We'll use the money to carry on paying debts and try and push for promotion, which we honestly think we can achieve next season."

So basically they are not looking at cutting anything back, but pushing for promotion or bust at the expense of the supporters?

QPR have their head in the clouds, far better teams than them in the Championship at the moment with more resources and fans.

As much as I hate to say it couldn't the same be said about us and league one. Its not about your resources and average attendance its what you make out of them and the side you produce. That being said I think this has been a big over achievement by them and I look forward to seeing the faces of Gallen, Bircham and R******s when it goes wrong.
