    Why? We’ll just be in a lower league (actually the level where we have spent most of our history) with an even smaller budget than now. The death would come if the fans all walk away. We’ll be back in the stadium next season.

    Who's to say we'd stay in league one?Many a club has dived down the leagues to non league football.

    Still a club though. I’d prefer us to stay up and challenge for higher things, but the club will not die no matter how far we drop. Even if big time bankruptcy hit we could still have a Phoenix club......if there were sufficient supporters who wanted it. I’ll still be a fan anyway. I know some of the people who run Leamington Brakes, they have great fun. Granted, they don’t have any history to get nostalgic about......

    It was the ‘death of the club’ comment I was responding to.

    Rangers were in the old Third Division when I started supporting them. I'm not about to give up on them 60 years later with them back in the same league.

    Old second division for me. I’ll have an ST again next season, if we are allowed to go, whatever league we are in.

    2nd in the 1st Division 75/76 the Season I started going. We haven't come close to that since. Wish we could be taking Ødegaard on loan, and letting Arsenal have Johansen. World went wrong somewhere, probably down to Gerry's back in 1977....

    !
    glory hunters!

    Though the fact that you have stuck with us shows true loyalty and commitment. Plus idleness and possibly brain damage.

    I must have been around 1970
    I remember Sugar Sugar on the radio on the way home after 1 game
    I remember Rodney
    I remember 76 well
    I remember us buying centre backs from Arsenal and Chelsea and our old manager managing Barcelona
    I just assumed it would always be like that

    Not sure anyone has said they were giving up on them.
    Relegation is dangerous in these times imo, but I admire others' optimism.

    I like your positivity. It may well work out that way. But under current circumstances, not just with Covid but with the mess that's been created over the years at our club, do you not think there is at least a risk of QPR running into serious trouble?

    I am expecting to see a few clubs buckle and fold over the course of the next year or so.
