    I did have a look at the Stan link, but everything has changed so much since then we'd have to frame any bet differently. My original offer to anyone was that I'd back us finishing higher this term to where we end up at the end of last season, but clearly no one is going to go for that now and I wouldn't blame them! I'll have a think and maybe we can come up with something, but now we've cleared the air I'm OK with that.

    Meanwhile I'll join you in swerving the issues, its all been said. The thing that would float my boat is continued progress for the club and maybe even a little cup run, but I wouldn't back that even if Klopp was running the show!

By the time you got back (or shortly after) the owner had taken unilateral control of this place, since which time you've had a clear run and said a few things which would have got you time in the bin under the old regime.

    I can cope with that just fine, but maybe you should ask yourself why there is suddenly this level of tolerance..... maybe others should too. That was my main point.

    As to the bet, the original offer sailed away with all the other lost threads that went missing when we 'upgraded' (including the legendary supporters thread). Thread search is now strictly date limited - at least it is on this browser. I think the bet was along the lines of our finishing position improving this term vs last, and I stuck to it even when we getting absolutely rodgered early doors. Shortly after that someone appeared - Poweranger? - who most people thought was you, but that gentleman was unwilling to have a bet too.

    There you go.

    Because its the internet, and know one can be sure of who anyone else actually is, don't take this personally. I could be you and vice versa etc.

    I think you are tolerated around here by the owner - MYU - because you are seen as thread clickbait, and tbf you've been brilliant at it. I do some work on another forum , not QPR, not even football, and I know that keeping a friendly troll on board is mistakenly seen as promoting traffic. Mistaken because its really short term: people get fed up with hitting the ignore button, or just get bored with the same old spin. And then they're gone.

    If I'm right, you're perfectly aware of all this. The alternative is that you're too shot away to realise that you're being used but I don't believe that. I think the real problem here is MYU who doesn't see the bigger picture.

    The whole point of the bet thing - which I think you've realised - was to find out if you were for real. You wouldn't play, and ignored threads where your opinion was exposed. Cover blown. That more than anything suggested to me that you didn't really believe what you were writing.

    You've played a blinder son, whether you know it or not, but admin - if there are any left apart from the owner - needs to get a grip. This has nothing to do with Ollie or TF or SteveMac and in a sense it never really did. Its about the way this place is being run.

    Good luck with it.





    Seriously??? Say what lol, honestly cannot believe youve gone to any effort to write all that made up waffle, i had been away for 7 months as you know, ive been rangers since bout 73 time, had forgot exact details of said bet and asked you the details so i would stand my side of the bet no matter what, so with youre character assasination youve got completely wrong im afraid, give out the exact details of our bet and ill have a say friendly 50 pounds bet with you to give to a charity of whoevers choice! I look forward to you ironing out the details of our bet.

    Would explain the ranting, name calling and aggression which most other posters steer clear of most of the time.

    And on Billy Bleach - the other week my son was at a QPR run training session, and one of the dads there was a guy I recognised from the Fast Show but didn't know his name. Google sent me to Simon Day - and this piece of genius.
