  1. Is the January transfer window on borrowed time?

    Sean Smith

    This January was the transfer window that proved the Premier League administrators right: No good will come of the game of football while clubs are allowed to spend their way out of trouble halfway through the season. Premier League clubs spent 13...

  2. Germany the winners in football's finance

    Sean Smith

    The German football financial model is working, according to the latest Deloitte Football Money League, as Bayern Munich rubber-stamped an impressive treble-winning season by becoming the third richest club in world football. The announcement of t...

  3. Promoted clubs make hay with new TV money

    Sean Smith

    The big signing of the summer may have been a player leaving the Premier League for La Liga, but this transfer window proved one thing conclusively: that the English top flight is the biggest football league in the world. And it is preparing to ge...

  4. Redknapp's negativity mars positive QPR performance

    Sean Smith

    A good performance, a hurdle overcome, a hoodoo beaten, but still the story is the players that the club is intent on offloading. "This is the toughest job in football and I've never been at a club where so many people are difficult," QPR manager ...

  5. Norwich could be big mistake for Hooper

    Sean Smith

    They say money talks in football, but in the case of the long, drawn out process of Gary Hooper choosing a club, it is difficult to know what exactly it is saying. As Norwich City play "we are the big boys" with Hooper and up their rather insultin...

  6. Cisse departs as QPR opens again for business

    Sean Smith

    Football is back from its summer holiday, and the deals are being done before the sand has been cleared from beneath well-sunned toes. At QPR, fast on the back of Danny Simpson arriving, the swing door at Loftus Road ejects Djibril Cisse, the colo...

  7. Redknapp to blame for horrible half

    Sean Smith

    So, I guess that must be it... Surely that's it by now? A poor, poor first half performance at Craven Cottage against Fulham on Monday night -- perhaps the worst half of football by a QPR side in a real shower of a season -- was enough to ensure t...

  8. High-flying Man Utd a perfect straw for clutching

    Sean Smith

    Welcome back! With no FA Cup action thanks to that rather painful 4-2 defeat against MK Dons last month, it has been a balmy two weeks of pain-free football for QPR fans. And it has not been too shabby for the first-team squad who have been winter...

  9. Infighting a natural state of affairs for QPR fans

    Sean Smith

    Having such a unique set of fans is a great sense of pride for those involved with QPR, but it causes its own problems, as we see every time things get a little dicey. And that tends to be quite often. Often lambasted by football fans of other ...

  10. Winless Rangers making slow progress

    Sean Smith

    Another game, another defeat. For all the pretty football and the new faces and the getting-to-know-you positivity about the place, the question must be asked: where is the first win going to come from*? Already there are small grumblings about Ma...

  11. International break: Allez Mozambique et Cape Verde!

    Sean Smith

    I am sure I will not be the only one looking for the results of the Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round second leg on Tuesday night. This absurd competition (remember they brought it forward THREE years to reset the football calendar) wil...

  12. Here's to mid-table obscurity

    Sean Smith

    Another season, another nine months of torture. Or perhaps not this time. QPR are probably the only club in English football that can make a glorious season of promotion to the Premier League look like a disaster - as it almost became back in 2011...
