Saving it for a rainy day and R's on the Road Double post.

Due to maintance work being needed on my laptop we have a double post of our opinion on last nights washout and the R's on the Road for saturday's fixture at Cardiff. I will return in time to provide a match report on Saturday evening/Sunday morning.

Last nights fixture verus Crystal Palace was postponed last night after heavy rain throughout the afternoon and evening caused one part of the Loftus Road pitch to become waterlogged and unplayable for last nights fixture.


It was well publicised this summer that the club had spent over £350,000 on relaying the pitch which included £60,000 improving the drainage system under the pitch.
Having been tested for the first time last night it seems as if this work hasn't worked out as planned, especially as the enemy down the road at Stamford Bridge were able to play their Champions League fixture despite the rain.

So we can officially say that money has been poured down the drain for the first time in two and a half years.

    this was an absolute disgrace!! Especially in this day and age. As mentioned, it rained all day in West London, did it have to wait until 6.30 for someone to go and check the pitch?? This was the only game to be called off last night when just 3 miles down the road, there wasn't even the slightest doubt that our nearest and dearest's game will fall foul to the weather. Lesson's need to be learned once again...
