Welcome Back...

Earlier today, Lofty Heights had all but closed. But then, in true QPR style, all hell breaks lose and makes it practically impossible to do so!!

Firstly, if you see the previous post, I have had an overwhelming response to the site closing down and to be honest, had me racked with guilt. But then, why does it take something like that to recieve such great comments? Well, along with all the comments and, let's just say a kick up the backside from a very close friend of mine, something else happened today that has prompted me to continue...

At 2pm today, John Gregory has been appointed as Manager of Queens Park Rangers - which then led to me charging around at work like a mad thing to get to a PC, plus dealing with a red hot mobile phone which was now continually ringing or recieving text messages.

Although a surprise, it wasn't entirely unexpected news and on a personal note, I am delighted. Not only was Gregory another of my boyhood QPR idols, the news that Gary Waddock will remain as his No 2 has also made me happy. Despite everything, there was no way I would like to see the reputation of a Rangers Legend ruined. So hopefully, the pair can re create the successful partnership they formed in the Rangers midfield in the 80's.

    You've stolen my thunder! After our talk earlier I had sat and thought about what I was going to write to try and persuade you to continue and then you do so before I had the chance!!

    Well I am delighted that you will continue but I will just have to say one thing....the person who has been attacking you on a personal level is beneath contempt. To attack you via a blog just shows how spineless they are and not worthy of a second thought.

    Rock on Lofty and Good Luck the R's....except on Halloween ;)

    Thank you for the comments all, let's hope JG gives us something to cheer about for a change, and makes this blog good to write again!

    Ellie - thanks for your kind words and encouragement. You are quite right about the personal attacks, a spineless piece of shite! Halloween may not be the horror show I was expecting now ha ha ha :)

    good to see you back Lofty , now no more talk of closing shop please :)

    and a big welcome to John Gregory

    I must admit after a lack lustre world cup from our boys and the prospect of another season of struggle at Loftus Road, I have been suffering with football apathy . I haven't even renewed my season ticket .
    Well let's all hope for a positive change now .
    Comon you Rs

    Great news on JG (Think) we need to see what will change,
    Lets hope a win on sat will kick start our season.

    I agree with Elle “the person who has been attacking you on a personal level is beneath contempt”.

    So lets hope it ends there.

    ps see you sat
