You can tell that it’s derby week can’t you?

The fact that a fanbase can be brought to such a heated debate over something as small as a stadium announcer.

It’s almost as if the footballing fixture gods had it planned this way all along. You had the joy of Christmas, then the ‘Magic of the FA Cup’ weekend (depending on if you still think there is magic in there), and then we roll right into the game against West London rivals Brentford, in what will be the final derby to be played at Griffin Park.

And perhaps inspired by a recent story in The Guardian, chronicling the tales of stadium announcers through the years, QPR fans found themselves chronicling not only the times that Griffin Park announcer Peter Gilham has had his fair share of ‘digs’ at QPR, but also using it to make a much larger point about how petty a club like Brentford are.

Which game is the bigger rivalry to you?





Let’s just hope we can win on Saturday and we won’t have to deal with them chirping up for a long time. Ideally, do the same for Fulham when they come to Loftus Road in March.

  • If it makes you feel better i dislike Chelski and Fulscum nearly as much as you lot, its as it should be as my old grandad taught me who was an old Brentford market boy.

  • I can’t get bent out of shape over an announcement. Let’s be Fair he is a fan of his club as I am of mine.
    As for the rivalry, I’d State Chelsea every time
