Yesterday was an historic day in the life and times of Queen’s Park Rangers. I’ve already heard so many positives in a relatively short space of time after listening to each of them talking up the club. I just hope and pray that this new partnership really is the beginning of a new dawn which will also involve a new transparent relationship with R’s fans which has been long overdue..
Tony Fernandes has spoken philosophically about his strategy for the club and some of the reasons why he became involved. One quote of his caught my eye: “The key thing is to survive this year, the other key thing is to start building an infrastructure and building something the fans can be proud of , anyone who comes in here and predicts where they’re going to be is killing themselves.”
“Football is a tough game, it’s a tough league, but if you put the building blocks in place, and you’re patient enough, the results will come. The key is philosophy, and philosophy can’t be built overnight, a philosophy takes years, and the culture of what you want to do. Let’s see whether we can get there.”
A more down to earth comment was reported in Italy recently when he remarked to Wes from Devon and a group of R’s fans about, “growing up in the chippy in the Uxbridge Road.”
Egos, arrogance and greed have prevailed for far too long at our club.
Let’s all move forward together.
