Welcome to our free-to-read section. While football is currently suspended and we are supplying a Daily Fix of QPR, it's here we'll place links to all the articles posted to date. As and when football resumes, we'll keep this section available as an archive. With somewhere in the region of 15 million words published since AKUTR's first appeared in 1987, it will never remotely be comprehensive. But it might keep you entertained - and give a flavour of what's inside one of the country's longest-running (and award-winning) fanzines. Fill your boots...

Simon Dorset shares an evening of unashamed nostalgia at Loftus Road in the company of Mark Lazarus and the Morgan twins, Ian & Roger...

 

 

Playing in what was to become the famous QPR number 10 shirt, the mantle passing seamlessly from Marsh to Bowles, Mick Leach (and others such as Alan Wilks) never really stood a chance of filling it in the way Rodney and Stan did. But as Chris Guy relates, Mick Leach was a very fine player in his own right…

 

It’s fair to say that Cos Ataliotis is not a fan of VAR  - and is in no hurry to see it introduced into The Championship. In fact, he’d be happier to see it scrapped altogether - and  thinks that, as fans, we could all take a novel approach to letting the authorities know exactly what they can do with their precious (if inaccurate) technology...

A crying shame that the football terrace is all too often associated with hooliganism, when it was far more often a place of wit, wisdom and great camaraderie. John O’Mahony recalled some of the characters he and his motley crew encountered week on week at Loftus Road during the 60s and 70s...

Featuring the inimitable wit of Phil Weller, sourced from various issues in the late 80s & 90s...

They sell, have no doubts about that. But who to - and why? Editor Dave Thomas tries to get to the bottom of why half-and-half scarves, the most unlikely of merchandise, not only sell but it would appear in sufficient numbers to proliferate...

What's the best way to describe a family in which Dad supports Arsenal, Mum supports West Ham, one son supports Chelsea and the other son QPR? Dysfunctional might be one word. Paul Richards' family exactly fitted that description...

Paul Lovell pays tribute to his Dad, Steve, who passed on to him his life-long love of Rangers; and then Steve himself shares his account of a famous day in QPR’s history, in March 1967...

Drive the A74(M) to Glasgow and on the outskirts of the city you will see the high-rise housing of Hamilton - home of the Accies, Hamilton Academical. So when Phil Weller found himself in the area one evening and with Hamilton at home to St Mirren, he thought he’d chalk up a first-ever Scottish game...

For all that he had established himself as one of the finest defenders ever to have worn a hooped shirt, Paul Parker had yet to score for QPR. With Don Howe certain that a team would shortly be on the wrong end of hammering from his fast-improving Rangers side, the arrival of Luton to Loftus Road in the 90/91 season would, as Ray Eaton explains, prove prophetic for the QPR boss - and change that statistic for Paul Parker...
