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...

Not entirely unsung, featuring as he does in many a list of favourite all-time QPR players - but time has been kind to the memory of the brilliant Simon Stainrod, with Jack Morgan recounting that it wasn’t always that way...

Although an infrequent visitor to Loftus Road these days, Joanne Connolly explores Michael Wale’s early career and how he helped elevate a young Simon Dee to stardom - and discovered an even younger Michael Palin...

A QPR team can win a knockout fixture, it seems - despite a succession of lacklustre performances in cup games over recent seasons. Desperate for the attitude and commitment that saw off Wigan to continue at Wembley, Jamie also hopes it marks a shift of attitude by Rangers towards cup competitions from here on...

It has largely been erased from most QPR fans’ memory. The 1986 Milk Cup Final against Oxford United, that is. Emil Harkness is only now able to talk about that miserable afternoon at Wembley thanks to channelling all his pent-up hatred towards one man - Ken Fish...

 

 

 

 

 

38. Rodney Marsh

 

 

 

 

No player shaped the modern history of Queens Park Rangers more than Rodney Marsh. Flamboyant, flash and, at times, fragile, Brian Ford looks back on the life and times of the man who was King of Loftus Road during the 1960s...

It will never be known one way or another now, but had he become QPR manager, a career in Hollywood might never have happened. Ray Eaton looks back on a character who, every bit as much as Joey Barton some years on, firmly divided opinions while at Loftus Road...

It’s usually good to break after a season’s end - but there’s a point in the summer when, as a football fan, you begin mentally to switch back on to a new campaign.
