The return of fans to the KPF Stadium lasted for two games in quick succession, before London was put back into lockdown once again. Not that the team is lifting the gloom at present. We discuss it all in depth.
So what was it like being back at the stadium once again? Peter Tajasque describes his experience - and elsewhere a host of QPR fans who were successful in the ballot share their experiences, with nearly all praising the club for the systems and protocols put in place.
Because it's Christmas, as usual we've been busy putting together a puzzle section. Not one, not two, not three, not even four - but FIVE separate challenges for you this year. See how well (or not) you can do.
Topping and tailing this section, we dip into the archives and present two festive-related offerings from the inimitable Anthony Hobbs, in which he explains his perfectly rational dislike for Luton... oh, and Christmas itself.
Elsewhere in a packed edition, Ray Eaton recalls a memorable night at Loftus Road when Arsenal turned up for an FA Cup replay to face a QPR side with former Gunners idol Kenny Sansom in it. Ray also outlines the case for a dedicated museum to the history of the club. Lars Norlin presents the third part of his research on the somewhat confusing story of how QPR came into existence, while Ian Carr reflects on his own personal history of following QPR since 1969; and despite being unable to watch the Academy sides so far this season, Chris Hewitt reports on the reserve scene.
And we promise there's much, much more besides!
