Another eventful week for Rangers’ faithful - on and off the pitch

After a very good draw against an unpredictable Nottingham Forest, this weekend QPR play bottom of the table Preston North End.

Do not take this as an easy three points, we’ve already seen what can happen to teams that hit the bottom of the table then start to rise through the league (Portsmouth, Bristol City, and Crystal Palace etc).

Yes on paper QPR should win the game comfortably but it’s the same old story of complacency will bite back, I’m sure Mr Warnock is well aware of this and the Hoops will remain focused. More importantly it should be a celebration for the Hoop fans of another record broken.

There is great news that goal machine Heidar Helguson is recovering from a nasty knock on his shoulder, he has been seen back in training but should Mr Warnock risk him or is it better to keep him for the Christmas battles to come?

Either way it’s a great relief knowing that the team are still producing without him but if needed he will have to prove himself to get back on the pitch.

Helguson having to prove himself? That’s awesome and we all know he will be hungry to get back on the score sheet.

Jamie Mackie scored for Scotland in a friendly against the Faroe Islands, finally off the mark he scored Scotland’s third goal, it wasn’t a net buster but still a great confidence booster.

The sheer joy on his face shows the patriotic passion that proves he was a justified pick from manager Craig Levein, congratulations Jamie.

Then to top it all off Mr Warnock says ‘no thank you’ to one of France’s greatest exports, the papers say that Robert Pires sent a message out to several clubs to come bring him back to end a gracious career in England with QPR mentioned in the batch he wanted.

Mr Warnock being ever such a gentleman revealed that they have no need for such a flair player as he would be a distraction to what QPR are trying to achieve.

In other words Mr Pires you will be sitting on the bench as the Hoops already have an abundance of flair, skilful and hungry players.

It’s nice to be wearing a white and blue shirt at this time of year.
