Football is very cyclical unless you are one of the “big six” or so.
At some point inevitably our star will wane and bragging rights will reverse.
QPHa's star is Uranus.

A goal kick from Harrow Borough FC
They’re even a bit twitchy on WBA Unofficial. Suddenly. Romaine is ‘too casual’(!) - most seem to want a couple more in to freshen things up etc.
Really looking forward to seeing us play Weeds next month....

Their fans' vocabulary is clearly limited. They need to learn the word 'languid'.

They are twitchy for good reason now. Their points advantage is dwindling fast, and their recent form is way off promotion standard.

Diangana is back fit which will be a massive plus for them. They do still have a very good team despite of recent results.

The fact we have played the entire top 10 other than Fulham away from home, is the hope I’m holding on to. As well as it meaning West Brom and Leeds come to us, it also means they have tougher overall games.

Fulham losing Mitrovic is also a big plus as they’re not out of the reckoning.

A lot of twists to come in auto and top 6 battle

Also don’t forget Forrest have to come here. I believe Forrest game in hand is against Reading

And even if Leeds beat us they’ve still got to go to Middlesbrough and get something...
The midweek Leeds come to us they have two big games either side. Just looked it up, Forest away before. Bristol city at home the Saturday after.
Big week for them. 3 games against 3 of the top 8

Sadly Bristol City are dog sh*t.

No but every game that we win will make them feel like that is the case, and that will only add pressure ;) Wins against Forest and Hudders and they'd be seriously worried, even if the point gap does stay at 6.

More honesty and hilarity from our friend Clive:

By the way, who's the "c**t in the camel coat"?
This hit home re Griffin Parkand the new stadium.

Great report. One extra point - I'll be sorry to see Griffin Park go. I know it's progress and we hope to follow one day, but I expect Brentford supporters will miss their atmospheric, rackety old ground - especially their home terrace. As Nick Hornby said somewhere, referrring to Highbury v The Emirates - "Everything's better now, but nothing's as good."

I miss "The Royal Oak". Ealing Road is not as good. I might venture into the West Stand for the odd game. The football I'm now watching makes up for everything.

Sounds like jealousy to me. We’ll see soon enough. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. I’d be worried more about the housing development, even though it looks win-win.

"The pornographic possibility of a Pontus Jansson own goal in front of the away end" Quality writing from our QPR chum.

.. a little village in Herefordshire
Sitting at the barbers in Hereford this morning, when this gobby young chav started chatting to me after seeing the Bees badge on my hoodie. He told me he was a Leeds fan, so I said he must be getting worried which he replied a little bit! .. he went on to say that the whole country would rather see Leeds in the Prem rather than us as Man U v Leeds is a more attractive fixture and how bigger they are compared to us blah blah blah .. I tried reason with him that the Prem should be based on how good the team is rather than the size of the club ... but as usual he didn’t get it .. so I picked up the paper to read rather than continue chatting.

Hmmm. A awful lot of people detest Leeds.

Somewhat foolhardy. It's never worked yet.

Look forward to seeing the Mohican on Saturday
