Dare to dream: prepare for Millwall

QPR moved 5 points clear at the top of the championship this afternoon. Yes, I'll say that again. QPR moved 5 points clear at the top of the championship this afternoon. My word.

After the weirdness of mad dog magilton and sinister era of Hitler fan Bernie Ecclestone and all round strange guy Flavio Briatore, together with the inevitable bad run of form for nearly two years we finally seem to be reaping the benefit of the Mittal connection. And in Warnock as manager stand a real chance this year of achieving a return to the top flight that last saw action in Loftus Road in 1996. John Major was Prime Minister and the Spice Girls had the Xmas number One for goodness sake.

I haven't been at all yet this season but will be there for the visit of Millwall on tuesday 28th. I was certainly there for the last visit of Millwall and remember well seeing the police coming already changed into their riot gear. They were right - within minutes of hurling abuse at their own side the Millwall fans started trying to tear up chairs and throw things and the QPR supporters. They were later marched in squares down the Uxbridge Road.

Hoping that there won't be a repeat of that I also want to see another victory on tuesday night. And even non football fans should start to consider - just consider - what bringing top flight football might mean for the Bush. Good and bad I'd say - but mostly good if you're a business on the Uxbridge Road - and in any case the feel good factor is worth it alone. Things are looking up!
