Hitler-loving Bernie Ecclestone and all round strange guy Flavio Briatore took over from what were essentially a bunch of mafia style goons who ended up in court after part owner Gianni Paladini was threatened in the boardroom by someone with a gun, appear to have resurfaced to threaten the clubs chances of making it to the Premier League this year.
The FA have slapped no fewer than seven charges of misconduct on the club and a points deduction now seems a certainty, despite the protestations of the QPR board who have requested a personal hearing. That is a dangerous move since it's quite clear following the Evening Standard's reporting last night that they not only knew they were in the wrong over the dodgy agent deal to sign Alejandro Faurlin but that they were offered the chance to put it right by the FA but chose not to. Fighting the charge is likely to increase the penalty.
So it seems that Shepherd's Bush may not be hosting premier league action after all - and nobody should be more outraged by that than Neil Warnock who has single handedly masterminded their commanding lead of the Championship from start to finish. His work appears to have been undone by the loons who for so long ran the club into the ground and almost into bankruptcy, and whose ghosts now have come back to haunt us.
And to think we dared to dream.
