Even though it's been played almost entirely behind closed doors, the season has sped by pretty much as most seasons do. With Rangers steadily climbing the table since the turn of the year, happily it concludes with a sense of optimism.

 

With Sergio Aguero leaving Manchester City this summer, Ray Eaton hopes that it will also see an end to constant replays of THAT goal at The Etihad in 2012.

 

By his own admission, Don Masson was not an easy man to play alongside, either at QPR or where he spent the majority of his career, Notts County, but time, plus introspection and reflection, along with writing a book called Still Saying Sorry, helped him come to terms with his own intolerance. John O'Mahony reviews that book.

 

And talking of Don Masson... with terrace standing about to disappear at Loftus Road in the early 1990s, John O'Mahony penned an affectionate look at some of the characters who frequented the Loft, amongst them a group who weren't Don Masson's greatest fans - recalled here in his article The Node of All Orbits, and reproduced in full as the latest dip into the archives.

 

Online content, and the ease with which it can be accessed, has meant the end of the Official Review era, much to the disappointment of Ray Eaton, who was an avid collector of the video and DVD collection that recorded QPR's history from season to season. Ray looks back at the titles released in the 80s and 90s.

 

Speaking of the 90s, in the latest instalment of his Life Support feature, Ian Carr reaches that decade, which proved to be a period of many managerial changes, and the arrival at Loftus Road of a new maverick...

 

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

What's In It?

Almost the end of the season - just two games remaining for Rangers as we uploaded Issue 10, just as April itself was about to run out... and just as Lyndon Dykes was about to switch from blond hair to blue hair! Oh well, some you win...

 

A busy month as well, not just for QPR but here at AKUTR's Towers, battling as we were to get the edition finished before the end of the month!
