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...

Sophie Lawrence where are you now? You alone are responsible for QPR’s relegation from the Premier League and the downward spiral in the years that followed... at least, according to your ex-boyfriend, Phil Wood...

Between 1882 and the mid-1960s, Queens Park Rangers Football Club compiled plenty of history... in the main, all of it fairly unspectacular. And then a used car salesman by the name of Jim Gregory took over as chairman. He appointed the deep-thinking Alec Stock as manager. And the man who, many years on, was to be the inspiration for Paul Whitehouse’s Ron Manager comic creation, proved he was anything but a bumbling fool when he brought in the mercurial talent of Rodney Marsh, a £15,000 steal from neighbours Fulham. It was the start of a glorious chapter for QPR and propelled the club into a second, more modern history - one of cup finals, promotions, European football and the heartbreak of narrowly missing out on the ultimate prize of all, the League Title. All that was to come, of course - but here, for the first time in full, and in itself a book within a book, Brian Ford tells the story of the incredible 1966/67 season when a small, previously unconsidered Third Division club pulled off a famous double, rewriting records along the way and achieving success on a scale no-one would have dared dream of during the years that had gone before it...

If there's a particularly shouty type in the crowd, chances are Alistair Fawn (RIP) would find himself sitting in close proximity...
