Re: ARTICLE: Brilliant unbeaten away run ends at Loftus Road

In the seats for this one. Pre match this lad came round selling a QPR pop record, I politely told him no thanks and reminded him of Burnley's unbeaten record and that was the one I wanted.
At half time he came round again and asked me again. He was politely :x told to stick it up his arse :D :lol:
