If the always unlikely scenario of a late surge into the play-offs have steadily slipped away in recent weeks, there's still a belief that Rangers are heading in the right direction, thanks to some smart work in the loan market.
Those temporary transfers prompted Ray Eaton to look back at previous QPR loan moves (Loan Rangers), some of which worked out spiffingly, some perhaps not so successfully.
A cultured, hugely popular defender and captain, Glenn Roeder was the first man ever to lead out a QPR team in an FA Cup Final at Wembley. First Jamie Sellers and then John O'Mahony (Glenn Roeder 1955-2021) pay tribute to the late Rangers legend.
There's a double helping from John O'Mahony this month as he admits to often wondering what ever happened to a long-time friend he had lost contact with in recent years (Murphy's Lore), and then out of the blue he was to learn some sad news.
Elsewhere in a packed issue, Simon Smith recalls ten results from his time supporting QPR that left him feeling less than chirpy (Sick As A Parrot); Ian Carr reaches the 1980s in his Life Support series; by his own admission it doesn't make for light reading but Simon Dorset attempts to explain the implications of the expected upcoming relaxation of the Profit & Sustainability rules (Forest Rangers); Ray Eaton compares the life and times of ten famous namesakes of past and present QPR players (What's In A Namesake?); editor Dave Thomas (Ed-Lines) reveals his approach to a podcast chat with Loft For Words' Clive Whittingham, broadcast recently; and Chris Hewitt once again updates us on the U23 and U18 QPR teams (In Reserve).
And as always there's much, much more besides!

What's In It?
And before we know it, it's April... and there was a lot of burning the midnight oil and glancing anxiously at the calendar as the days continued to be crossed off in March.
The goal, of course, was to ensure that, even if it was just sneaking in under the wire, to publish officially in the third month of the year - even if it does say 'April' on the cover!
And with just a few hours to spare and a bit of nightmare with login details to begin with (soon fixed) we made it...
