Don’t Blame The Fans !

Posted on by Site Admin

The following letter was written by Philippa Cohen (Miss) of Cricklewood and appeared in the Willesden Chronicle on 4th November, 1949…. Dear Sir, Oh dear ! What can the matter be ? Every time QPR strike a bad patch the management turn on the supporters. We can’t shout anything right. After a number of missed penalties, we yell who we think should take the spot kick.

Posted on by Site Admin
