A full year since most Rangers fans last set foot inside Loftus Road - and that imposed exile doesn't look like ending any time soon. All of which, we discuss, is even more frustrating given the turnaround in fortunes over the past few weeks.
It was uncharted territory taking AKUTR's online, although a prescient decision given how long the lockdown has gone on for. In an opening article, we discuss what the future holds for us as a publication.
Ray Eaton looks back at some high profile signings made by QPR over the years (Crocks of Gold), who for one injury or another found their time in W12 either curtailed before it had even started, or would be remembered for the amount of time they spent on the treatment table.
Amongst the articles in Issue 08, Dave Barton reveals details of his now up-and-running QPR-dedicated YouTube channel, which he has been busy creating during lockdown (QPR Memories); editor Dave Thomas (Ed-Lines) reflects on failing memories and past trips to Oxford, old ground and new; Ian Carr (Life Support) continues his reminiscences on a lifetime as a QPR fan; Chris Hewitt updates the U23 and U18 picture at QPR (In Reserve); and Ray Eaton looks back over a memorable period in Les Ferdinand's career (When Les Ripped Up The Record Books) when he changed our club's records book almost on a weekly basis.
And as always there's much, much more besides!

What's In It?
A first for us... almost three decades on from one of the all-time classic front covers (guess the postcode Kerry Dixon's famous missed penalty at Loftus Road ended up in), we revisit an old joke, with an unexpected find when the NASA spacecraft Perseverance landed on Mars!
QPR's improved form since the turn of the year is reflected in the issue, not just editorially but also in the Vox Pop feature, in which Rangers fans offered up their views on the reasons behind it.
