The Game's Gone Crazier

Time for the book to be thrown at QPR to be fair to all the other Championship clubs

Full marks to former West Ham cult figure Bobby Zamora. He may be old. He may be crocked. But he's still got it, evidently. One shot on target all game, and Zamora scored it. Memories of that win at Highbury during West Ham's great escape anybody? And, of course, Butterfingers Green and Inadequate O'Neil were both playing for the Hula Hoops too, with the mighty Ravel on the bench. And 'Arry the Albatross masterminded it all and there's rumours that he now plans to bring Rio and Joe Cole to the Bush! With QPR looking for a new ground, perhaps they should check out Upton Park after our move to the Olympic Stadium!

But that's for the future. In the here and now, action must be taken against QPR for cheating their way to promotion. Financial Fair Play? UEFA have hammered Manchester City and now the Football League must follow the example, demanding immediate and full disclosure of the operating losses for the 2013-14 season and imposing massive fines to punish Fernandes, thereby ensuring that no team dares to follow the QPR model into the future.

Indeed financial penalties aren't enough. If the game really wants to put its house in order, then QPR shouldn't be allowed to take their place in the Premiership. Look at the calls for West Ham to be relegated over the Tevez affair - and that was one player! QPR have won promotion with a squad of players that they cannot afford and have flagrantly and knowingly broken rules that other teams have respected. There should have been a transfer embargo last summer but 'Arry was allowed to bring in Austin, Phillips and a host of others, even though everybody knew the club were not going to comply with the financial rules.

So, for the good of the game, action must be taken and taken quickly. The only fair punishment would see QPR financially crippled for next season, guaranteeing an immediate return to where they belong - in the Championship!

  3. MK - i can't see your argument - it is as plain as the nose on your face - QPR have cheated - there is just no point being all macho and passing FFP rules if when the first big break of them happens - and one you knew was going to happen - you duck the issue - the rest of the championship has been in a false competition all year

  6. Don't worry hammersfan, although QPR looked solid at the back yesterday, they've struggled against one dimensional long ball teams... so west ham should be alright!

  8. If action should be taken over QPR then action should be taken over Chelsea too for there 20 years of buying beyond their means in an effort to buy titles

  9. Yeah, coz moving into a ground heavily subsisdised by the british tax payer is fair to the other Premier League clubs. Muppet

  10. Must say I agree with the author. It is painful to watch a very good footballing side like Derby, who have their house in order, debt free and with players playing for the club, not the ££££'s get no rewards when QPR (and no disrespect to the fans) have blatantly stuck two fingers up to everyone else and to the FA. Sad day, even without that horror inducing shocking and undeserved goal yesterday.

  11. If QPR are to be punished in such a way then so should Chelsea for the last 20 season of paying for players and wages that the club can't afford in their attempts to buy titles. QPR went through 2 seasons of bad management from the bottom up to the top and hopefully have learnt from this. I think if West Ham were spending the same sort of money you would have a different opinion on the matter.

  12. In this latest attempt to get attention, you mention three football clubs. Q.P.R, Man City and some other club called West Ham. What have their financial dealings got to do with Leeds United? You use any excuse to stick a bitter blog on this site. Yesterday, you congratulated Q.P.R on reaching the premiership.....on the Leeds site? you then went on to spew out your usual hatred of Leeds. Im baffled? Are you going to congratulate Real Madrid on their 4-1 win yesterday... on a Leeds blog? You should change the name you use. "I have gone crazier" not the game. Maybe next season you will concentrate and direct your hate at Q.P.R when they do the double over West Ham and finish higher in the league. That is my prediction ( a bit like yours last season when you said Q.P.R will walk the championship and Leeds will finish 8th?)

  13. spot on article, rangers should be hit with a 50 million fine and if they wont pay they should be expelled from the league, that might change fat slob Fernandez's attitude , never will a team of second rate has beens and never beens been so lucky in one game

  15. The idiot is back!!!!! and it all got thrown out of the courts for now,check your facts and get a job,and how can you say a squad we cannot afford?

    This is my last and only reply and suggest to all others never to bother reading 'the games gone crazy' blogs anymore,waste of all our time.
    Not big enough to congratulate the SUPERHOOPS U R'SSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  16. I was going to say "that's a bit rich"coming from a West Ham fan but you admitted to your (let's say cheating) wrong doing over the Tevez affair. However, I am in total agreement with your sentiment..........Teflon 'Arry seems to get away with it year in, year out - it makes me wonder if he actually has something over the powers that be at the FA (or he is a high ranking member of a secret society). Nonetheless, they will not remove them from the Premiership so I agree to a fine but for more impact a 20 point deduction as well. I would rather see Wigan back in the Prem - at least they played attractive football and they epitomized what the fans football is all about...........and on a budget.

  17. I never thought I would ever agree with a West Ham fan after the Tevez affair, but you are spot on with that.

  18. you forgot Maiga, at least we didn't pay £4million for him.

    you've got him back for another two years....enjoy

  19. Spot on. People are singing tea bag faces praises, yet to be honest I reckon my nan could've won promotion with that squad at her disposal. Massive wage bill. Massive debt. Cheats.

  20. I wish Derby got to go up automatic the play off system as a whole is unfair :(

  23. Nice to see another jealous supporter have a whinge. Football is a business and QPR's owners are running their club the way they want to, they can run at a loss as they have money to invest. FFP has no legal legs to stand on, wait for the court battle to commence.

  24. What a pointless blog entry!

    More that it's from a West Ham fan that has clearly overlooked their own clubs financial dealings i.e. getting the tax-payers to foot the bill for their move to the Olympic stadium - approx. £60m according to the cost breakdown.

    Added to which, Financial Fair Play doesn't have anything to do with what's "fair" or not. It's the G10's way of maintaining the status quo. The rich clubs stay rich and powerful whilst everyone else has to continue to find other ways to compete even though most of the G10 clubs have at some point had ridiculous injections of huge amounts of capital in order to put themselves up there.

    FFP has been incorrectly labelled "fair" due to it's name and sold to the masses that the powers that by don't want clubs to go under or be at risk financially when really if you take the case of QPR there are no signs that Tony Fernandez is planning on leaving or selling up or anything like that. Why shouldn't he be allowed to put his own money in?

    It would be better if the FFP rules were more geared to ensuring that an owner converts money to equity and if they ever decide to sell up and reduce funding that they are legally bound to honour all contracts - player and staff contracts etc. That way no club would be at risk of going under.

    Additionally, in QPR's case, they are going to be subject to a "promotion tax" which could be up to as much as £50m... so I'm sure they'll not quite get away with "cheating their way to promotion" as you put it.

    That said, who know's if they'll be able to get the money off of them given that QPR are no longer part of the Football League Association and the Premier League have decided they won't withhold any money in order to help the football league claim any fine.

  25. I would be upset if another small team from London got up and yet they are still bigger than West sham! Stealing any limelight(what little their is anyway) from your team. Don't bore me with a reply of west sham won work cup. Imagine being bothered by crappy Qpr getting up in play offs!

  26. Who thinks that the cross dressing former priminister (known as "miranda" when he's masquerading as a woman) should be summoned before a court in the Hague to face charges of war crimes? I know I do.

  27. Qpr deserved to go up because they were playing the vile sheep. What's more i hope they win their first 4 prem games so direby stay the worst prem team in history. Hope you sheep enjoyed the banners we left you to welcome you home. Ureds. Zamora, come for a night out in nottingham- you won't have to buy a drink.

  28. West ham did exactly the same in their season in the championship, buying every striker in sight so no-one has any left. Moron. Absolute moron.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Agree with the article. Hate Derby being a Forest fan. We're no angels but do think the reason we made no major additions in Jan was because of Ffp and a rumoured transfer embargo. Zamora reputedly On 70k a week. Others On similar I should imagine. With your big gates lol I'm sure it would have been sustainable in the championship. A Very lucky win has given you some respite but I'd rather have a chairman who doesn't play Russian roulette with my club be thankful for your good fortune because without it ....

  30. Why are you people banging on about nonentities like qpr? They're as relavent as west ham,no one cares,now shut up. Why not use this comments section for more important things?

  31. I think Lakshmi mittal can afford it-he's only worth £10.5 billion! Fed up with other fans bleating about qpr,because we have the 'cheek' to spend money

  32. And who is going to punish them? The FFP rules affect the football league. The football league have no jurisdiction over Premier League clubs. If they had stayed down they may well have been penalised but now they have gone up I'm afraid they have no case to answer.

  33. Couldnt you find anything stupid to say about Leeds today , you had to go back to your first love QPR , .....LOL....Who cares , good luck to em ...... Its all about money these days sadly , so if Man City , Chelsea and the rest of em do it , its only natural other teams are gonna chance their arm , lucky for them it came off , see you next season .

  34. LOL...this is Arry Rednap your talikng about , hes spent f**k all , its all lones ect ..... pity Sam aint got that kinda clout ...... If any thing they should punish Mark Hughes for being a **** and Wornock for panic buying maybe.Look forward to plaing them next season ....just dont let them buy Morrison ......

  35. But it's ok for prem teams to bankrole clubs with billionaires,and have debts of £500mill like man utd,and west-ham who were going down the swany with debts of £90mill and selling everyone they could.Cardiff were £100mill in debt before the stadium and promotion.Arsenal are prob the only club that don't have debts,but the greedy prem want it all,pay low transfer fee's for top championship players and nick players for peanuts..Tell me where there is fair play in the prem.It is the prem's fault that these players on stupid wages won't go to a championship club and take a drop in money and rather sit on there wages in the prem..2 fingers up to the prem and all it stands for!!!
