Come on your R's. A  team  like the Baggies who appear to have more celeb fans than normal ones. 

Used to like their nice compact match  day programme.    You need to explore to find out for yourself the best places watering holes to visit.  My personal  preference is to get off on the Central  line at Shepherds Bush on the Central and dart into the Duke of Edinburgh for a swifty before moving down the road.  Further down the road you have the Belmont, the White Horse and the regulatory Weathers.

Prices are bound to be over 30.00 - over at Craven Cottage proof is provided you don't need to overcharge but that's another chat for another time.

We have had mixed results over the years - in what I would call the typical cardboard cut out ground.  Always remember the Where's your father Stanley Bowles song and the open end which in reality was a small Highbury's version of the Clock End.

Don't try waiting to 2:50pm to get in, they always lack turnstiles.

By the looks of it, this could well be a key promotion clash. 

If only we had Brian Little fit for this fixture.  A big scorer against them.

I used to work in White City and always liked O'Donoghues pub, which is down Goldhawk Road. The Defector's Weld was always popular for any leaving dos/birthdays too.

The five-a-side pitch we used to play on at lunchtimes was just a bit down from Loftus Road and the surface was QPR's pitch from the '80s that they'd donated. It was full of massive holes and not very safe.

There's a good swimming pool round the corner from the ground too, if anyone fancies a pre-match dip.

Swimming along with squash are my main sports.  Even today missing Derby because of an Wipeout competition in the Mersey.

Park for free if you turn left off the A40 in the direction of Acton instead of right towards Shepherds Bush.
