Getting Quizzical

Initially Speaking

Posted: Sunday 12th April 2020

How much do you know about QPR? In fact, how's your general knowledge generally?

 

Here at AKUTR's, we do like a quiz - and regularly feature various puzzles and quizzes, not always with a QPR theme. They vary in type and style, and on this page you can try our latest challenge.

 

No cheating now... and all the answers can be viewed using the link at the bottom.

Below are 10 individual clues to the identity of a player or team with an association in various ways to QPR - along with the initial or initials of the answer. There are no tricks and most are easy enough, even if they require a spot of thinking. At the end, though, is an 11th and decidedly trickier poser. How many can you get, without cheating?
