The 2021/22 fixtures came out in June, so good timing for us to take a rapid gallop through what the next few months has in store for QPR fans as we contemplate the return to games.


Rodney Marsh was the darling of Loftus Road in the 1960s, as was Stan Bowles in the 70s. We dip into the archivesto bring you Brian Ford's unexpurgated verdict on QPR's most celebrated player in the '67 double-winning side.


Fast forward to a more modern era, and although not talked about in quite the same breath as the two above, Paul Furlong achieved cult status at QPR... eventually. Ray Eaton looks back on the second coming of a play-off hero.


Who thinks 'assists' are even a thing in the game? Well, Ray Eaton does, for one - and argues his case for why we should start taking more notice of them and who's racking them up.


Ian Holloway's first spell as manager was a defining period for a QPR side that had returned to the third tier of English football for the first time since 1967. Ian Carr recalls the Play-off Final in Cardiff, and promotion a year later.


And as always there's much, much more besides!

Our second regular issue of the season - and plenty of reading to get stuck into, as we quietly hug ourselves on Rangers making a decent start to the campaign, although the unbeaten run had come to an end just ahead of going to print! Elsewhere in it, Ray Eaton recalls top ten memories associated with the plastic pitch, John O'Mahony tells a heart-warming tale involving Eberechi Eze, Ian Carr reaches the early 2010s in his series Life Support, and editor Dave Thomas begins his diary of the trials, tribulations & travails of the season. Plus so much more, of course!
