Welcome superhoopette, and I see you support the first team I ever went to see, and still enjoy the occasional visit.

Very infrequently but so pleased they've made it up again since dropping in 1996. I've only been four times since 1969 but all memorable matches, including the famous team with Rodney Marsh and Jamaica v Nigeria, but have also seen them at Barnet once as well as I tended to alternate between there (my local team) and Brentford which is a lot easier to get into and park than QPR. But I did make sure it was returned to occasionally as well for nostalgic reasons. My first visit was against Oxford in December 1969.

My best moment there was when they played India, and I wear an Owusu shirt (Lloyd Owusu, centre forward) when I go and I was right at the front next to the goal, he ran straight into the hoardings and landed upside down in front of me. I had to pick him up with a woman next to me, and it turns out the whole thing was filmed for Indian TV and I got a video of it. You can't arrange something like that in advance!
