It may come as no surprise to many but according to UEFA’s European Club Footballing Landscape report QPR have been ranked fifth as Europe’s most debt ridden club.

Accounts for QPR Holdings Ltd

Their next accounts, which will cover 31 May 2017 through to 28 February 2018 should be published in May 2018. In the meantime the club owners, Tune Group (55%), Ruben Gnanalingam (33%) and Lakshmi Mittal (11%) need to find that magic formula and the ever elusive ‘Money Tree’ if we are ever to get out of this mess.

So what is the answer?

Sack the board?
Find new Middle East owners with deep pockets?
Fans club together (similar to Portsmouth FC) and buy the club?

In my opinion the club simply cannot sustain this sort of debt. I mean, I wonder how much we’re paying back in interest.

Oh well, I’m just a meaningless obscure face hiding behind my screen – I am not worthy – I will never be taken seriously – I’m just a fan who just happens to have supported the club for the best part of 40 years and yet no one cares what I have to say.

Any of the above resonate with you?
