Greed is ruining the Champions League now
at 15:52 8 Dec 2016

On one level the only response is 'shame' but it Wilson's view is correct and just another example of reducing competition in sport. Must make that European League more urgent so the biggest clubs retain even more of 'their' share of the TV money.

Loft for Words Match Report
at 11:31 28 Nov 2016

I'm not sure QPR were quite as good in the first half as they seem to think; certainly they were in the last 15 minutes of it when we sat back too much but I expected them to really go at us from the start after last week.

http://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/news/44375/holloways-hon

This paragraph was interesting:

"Ipswich, who were in front at the break anyway, couldn’t possibly be as bad again in the second half and sure enough McCarthy put a number of measures in place at the break – stopping Hall carrying out from the back, crowding Chery, getting in behind QPR’s wingbacks, seizing control of the midfield through Douglas – that stopped the R’s dead in their tracks."

He's right on the referee who was awful throughout, although probably missed that Perch's first challenge was pretty poor too; I think he only got booked then for moaning.

And hard to argue with this bit too:

2Attendance – 16,510 (1,225 QPR) Sad to see and hear Portman Road, which is a quality football ground right in the middle of the town and very atmospheric when it gets going, half empty and almost completely silent even in comfortable victory. This is your Financial Fair Play fall out – two clubs working with a hand pressed firmly on their heads, who already know where they’re going to end up this season, charging in excess of £30 to get in. Don’t expect a lot of people to turn up, and for those that do to be in particularly high spirits, in those circumstances."
