Something to do with this play and a Sunderland deflection. Think I'd have to see the clip.

Seeing a few tweets saying it is for a phase just before that. That's clearly onside.
The sequence starts here. I can only imagine it's for one of the players in an offside position when the ball is initially crossed later playing the ball 10 yards onside at the edge of the area. Very disappointing whatever the outcome :bounce:

QPR haven't been to the Quarter Final of a major cup competition since 1995, that's just over a quarter of a century They were drawn at home to the lowest-ranked team left in the competition.

After a 0-0 draw, they went out on penalties, with their three misses being by:

Their great geriatric goalscoring hope, Charlie Austin - "Oh Dear";

Their next big transfer fee hope, Ilias Chair - "How Sad";

And their ex-Brentford hopeless, Yoann Barbet - "Never Mind".

Pitch geography all wrong, just need to do Plan A better I think.

Has the game finished yet? 🤓

Like us in MA days, really desperate for a cup payout. Absolutely shocking peno's, but horrible decision by lino.
They were offside before this. Does further show though what a stupid idea not flagging straight away is though. Especially in games without VAR.

If the Pratt so desperately wanted to reach the Q/F and get a money spinning game against premier league opposition (like us 😎) why didn't the **** play his first team instead of f***ing about with B teamers who are sh*t?

Loser 😂😂😂

I would imagine he thinks that being 6th/7th in the weakest Championship for years, that his squad has enough depth to beat Sunderland.

They're not taking last night's 'miscarriage of justice' lying down on Loft for Words, looks like they're instigating a class action against the EFL as we speak.

(look under the 'Post-Sunderland:complaining to the club and EFL' thread)

Was Just reading that myself.
Quite remarkable.
Even some of the contributors on there were embarrassed.
I’m embarrassed for them.

Mind you. Stroud was involved, which somehow makes it even funnier.

Loooool. The "in conjunction with" is the best part for me..

They'll be starting a petition next.

Not sure if this is old news but just seen this:
Unless it's just a ruse to put pressure on LBH&F, then I'd say it looks like confirmation from the horse's mouth of what was already increasingly apparent, namely (a ) no new ground for QPR in less than 10 years, and (b ) if/when it does happen, it will be outside the borough.

Considering LBH&F already has Chelsea and Fulham in their patch, QPR are like Cinderella - except there's no sign of a handsome Prince!

Clachnacuddin might be willing to share
Although I knew the name, I (Clachna)couldn't locate the place, so I googled it and found this charming piece:
Clachnacuddin: The fire-hit football club longing to return home

I have to say, 700 fans at £8 a pop for a visit from Fort William in the middle of winter is highly impressive.

Though it would mean QPR would only be the 3rd club in Inverness, after them and Caley Thistle. They must bitterly regret that Wimbledon got to Milton Keynes first.

I not too sure their fans would put up with relocating outside London. Afterall, they are Chelsea' s main rivals. 😆

That letter to the FA makes QPR fans look absolute clowns and idiots.

For that reason, it has my total and unconditional support.

And if the RaRa's thought yesterday was a bad day, the latest statement from LBH&F hasn't made today any better! :LOL:

A Hammersmith & Fulham spokesperson said:
“We are huge supporters of QPR and are willing to bend over backwards to help them as we have done with Fulham FC and Chelsea FC.
“However, QPR have not been in touch with the council on any plans of substance for over two years. At our last meeting with their CEO, we asked him about why they were apparently struggling to find even the £20m funds to build the Warren Farm training ground.
“We’ve told QPR we cannot gift hundreds of millions of pounds worth of public land to QPR’s multi-millionaire overseas owners.
“We have suggested that if QPR are serious about any site in the borough which they need financial help with that they look into a new fan-based ownership scheme for the club so we can guarantee it is the club that benefits and not their owners.”

Statement responding to future of Queens Park Rangers in the borough

No messing about with fancy footwork there by the Council, then, just good old Route One stuff straight to the point!

Glad they kept in my line “We’ve told QPR we cannot gift hundreds of millions of pounds worth of public land to QPR’s multi-millionaire overseas owners”.

Surely that goes against the GPG code of conduct!

When beyond a limbo dancing contest does bending over backwards help anyone?

They've got a point... How are QPR going to fund a new stadium if they can't even find the cash for the training ground?

Wow, that really is an astonishing statement from the Council 😂 It’s incredibly poorly worded, unprofessional even - you almost hear the author muttering to them-self “These lot are really get on my t*ts now”.

Beautiful stuff.

The new training ground in the LBH at he old BA club will be next on the list as a potential new ground idea. Read it here first.
Will never happen High street Cranford struggles with traffic on that road as it is , My old school opposite , no room for road improvements and situated on a big housing estate with a small road in and out , Not a chance I’m glad to say 😁
