Some worrying news for QPR fans on a QPR forum…

The Spoiler will admit that the ins and outs and ups and downs of QPRgate – as nobody’s calling it – have proved to be a little indecipherable.

Thankfully, while perusing some forums and stuff to try and get to grips with the situation, we came across this rather good article. As forum member Jonnylate says, we’re not sure quite how valid it is, but we thought it was bloody interesting and well worth a read – it could prove to be our very own Rosetta Stone.

Off you go…

    Week-old conjecture using non-applicable parallels as reasons for precedent.

    From everything I’ve heard coming out of the commission this week, and the fact that this is an independent tribunal to which the FA must also present their case (and are failing to do so), I doubt QPR will even lose their title, let alone their newly gained Premier League status. 1-3 points on top of a hefty fine wouldn’t be a surprise, but the FL are apparently in QPR’s corner, so we’ll see. It’s all still a guessing game.

    heres hoping for more drama and a 30 point penalty

    :D

    Everything I read is based around what punishment should be given without actually looking at whether or not QPR are guilty. Worrying news? No chance. For a start, QPR signed Faurlin in 2009 at a time when the 3rd party ruling was in place in the Premier League only. As a Championship club, QPR notified the authorities correctly. Where this has all gone wrong is when QPR insisted on their website that they had bought a player for 3.5 million when the price was nothing like that. As QPR had given correct information to the authorities, the only charge they should be facing is why did they feel the need to lie to their fans? Also strange to hear that Cardiff have a ‘similar’ situation going on but they will not be called to explain as they only answer to the Welsh FA. Stinks doesn’t it?

    That said, QPR will lift the Championship trophy, they will not be docked any points and they may receive a fine for using a non FA registered agent – who QPR did NOT actually pay anything to, and who WAS regsitered with FIFA. So here are the FA saying they are bigger than FIFA? Bigger clowns certainly…..

    Totally agree with Mark. Everyone deciding on what punishment we should receive even though no judgement has been made. Even former FA Chief Palios is at it although it is piossible media is putting their own spin on what he said i.e. “IF” found guilty there would be large points deduction but the truth is he does not know the facts and is just speculating. The facts are as Mark said. I remember there being a little song and dance about when Faurlin signed that they actually never paid anyone 3.5m but that he was possibly worth that. And yes Giani Paliadini should not have done so but was done to impress the fans and is apparently common practice and I am not one bit surprised.
    Also why would the FA clear the signing of Faurlin of which money would have passed through the FA and allow him to play for this season if there was any wrong doing. By the way Paddypower and other large bookmakers have paid out on QPR winning the championship in the last 24hrs.
    There was a leak that QPR lawyers had a big win on Thursday afternoon whether there is any validity in it we will soon find out.
    Finally,
    I seriously doubt that anything other than a token fine will be as a result of all this nonsense. Funny that other teams in the play offs do not want to see us deducted points as they do not want to face us. Thanks you Neil for an amazing turnaround in our fortunes.
    Bring on the the so called super clubs….The R’s are coming home!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what a load of bull we are not afraid of facing you we actually think you were deserving of the title over the season and were trying to support you as it would be wrong to take points off you but with your blinkered attitude maybe we should change our attitude

    brian, you are correct, the support from clubs that could potentially benefit from our demise has been nothing short of amazing and deeply appreciated. i take that comment back as it really was not a fair representation. good luck in the play offs. think its the strongest line up for some time.

  • brian // May 6, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    Thanks for your reply Mike

  • Mark // May 6, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    Brian, I did reply in a similar vein to Mike, but it never registered! Suffice to say good luck with the play offs. All support is very much appreciated and all clubs in the league are respected. Sometimes, when you get an element of success, there is a tendancy to go a little overboard, so no harm meant at all to anyone else.

  • brian // May 6, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    Thanks Mark hope it all works out for you

    FOOTBALL LEAGUE STATEMENT
    Posted on: Fri 06 May 2011

    Football League Statement

    A Football League spokesman said:

    “The Football League can confirm that it intends to present the npower Championship Trophy to Queens Park Rangers at the conclusion of tomorrow’s fixture with Leeds United, in line with custom and practice. This decision will only be reviewed if the verdict of the ongoing FA Tribunal affects standings in the Championship table before that time.”

    Surely they will not han us the trophy only for them to take it back days later. Is there a example of this in football league history?

  • Brain // May 6, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Well, in the 89/90 season the Football League did present Swindon Town a playoff winners trophy at Wembley – then relegate the club two divisions a matter of weeks later, so yes there is an example in football league history.

    Though it must be said, they did this to a very skint Swindon Town, not sure they’d attempt it against a cash-rich-we-can-afford-better-lawyers-than-you QPR.

  • Robert // May 6, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Anyone else see the irony in the fact that one of the FA’s charges against QPR is ‘bringing the game into disrepute?’

    Shouldn’t it be the other way round?
