The study identified the potential for an increase in capacity between 30% and 50%, more than doubling the existing concourse area and tripling the existing hospitality provision, supported by 500 car parking spaces.

An increased capacity of 23,700 (scheme 1) potentially rising to over 28,000 (scheme 2)”.


When I was at primary school, I was told to stop mainlining crack cocaine and downing Hennessy brandy whilst drawing pictures of dinosaurs with my crayons. It’s a shame these QPR clowns never learnt that invaluable life lesson whilst preparing their cray-cray document. 🤓

Well they had their chance in 1967... :)
If they had taken over I wonder what GP would be now. Flat and built over and them league 4 or them in the PL with a 40,000 all seater stadium incorporating one side of New Road and one side of Braemar Road to double the size of the stands with the Royal Oak going all the way across instead of 3/4 and Ealing Road a double decker? Just a thought - a horrible one but it is Halloween!

"Whilst Fernandes was dreaming of the billions he'd make if he could redevelop the entire 200 acres at Old Oak (that he didn't actually own), there were numerous sites we could have gone for within spitting distance of Loftus Rd that would have serviced our needs perfectly. The M&S warehouses behind White City station, the Dairy Crest site immediately next door to it, BBC Woodlands, BBC White City - all 4 of those had enough space to build a stadium and some flats alongside. Throw in a redevelopment of LR and we'd have massively reduced the cost of relocating."

Add to that the big "plans" they had for a 40k stadium at Car Giant - another site they didn't actually own - and the comparison is stark between their total lack of "cop on", and little old Brentford's achievement in overcoming all sorts of hurdles over 15 years+ to get the BCS built.

And all thats before you compare their respective on-field fortunes during the same period :LOL:

So true. What we have achieved thanks to Brian and Chris's persistence and MB's backing is nothing short of incredible. All straddled by the Financial crisis and latterly Covid. I'm still not sure it will fit though..........

Could they not remove the soulless exec boxes in the main stand and return the lower tier to its original seated configuration? Could never understand why you'd go to a game in a sealed box and have the match day noise piped in whilst watching it all on the telly anyway.

I was amazed reading the bees united book how much work was required at so many levels to get the new stadium built and that is from someone who was around at the time. Rangers appear to want a fairy godmother to sort it for them. Fair enough wham had that, but they are rarely seen in west london.

Mark Warburton is a very dull interviewee.

He‘s only got Plan A for all of his interviews, and if he gets that badly wrong, he just tries to do that better. His microphone geography is suspect, too.

Probably the wrong thread to put this but I went to a funeral today of a legend of a man that was my manager when I played in Brentford for the New Inn.
You couldn't of met a more kind person. A big qpr fan.
Anyway his coffin turned up with an arsenal flower thing on top. Apparently he liked them as well much to the disappointment of the raras there, which made me smile.
I turned down the opportunity of watching their game on telly tonight with them because its not great to punch anyone at a funeral.

RIP Tommy Mackin. A true lovely man.

Even the small part I was involved in with BIAS was 30-40 hours voluntary work per week. Glad I was a lot younger then!

'As an aggrieved QPR supporter and active contributor to the QPR messageboard Loft for Words, which has been unified in its livid disgust this evening, I am writing to you now in conjunction with the above incident this evening.'


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

Oh well that's that then . The FA were going to stand firm until they learnt that Johnny was an active contributor to a messageboard. RoyalOakBee is filled with so much hope

How on earth wasn’t Johansen sent off just then for that assault on Alex Mighten?!? Incredible!

I’m sorry, if Warburton manages to get this sh*t promoted then he truly is a genius.
Not a complete **** as I’d previously believed.

I’d like to laugh in conjunction with the Forest goal.

I sent my Rangers mate a text at lunch saying I don’t mind if you win as hate Forest, their fans and the keeper Brice, Joe Worrall, Ginger f**k Colbeck, Bong and previously Ben Watson.
He replied “Let it go mate, why do you hate everyone”

Last minute +1 equaliser and 5 minutes later text without me getting in touch “You’re right, Ginger c*** and horrible side”

Probably Warburton at some stage in an interview says ‘You need to take care of the microphone!”.

I had hoped to get their Rich. Hope Tommy had a great send off.
Not a problem mate. It all went well. Tommy is in a better place after a few years of suffering. A nice send off. Cookie wasn't there. Trying to talk to him but no answer. Hope he is OK.
