So how right have I been proved exactly? All season I have maintained that QPR would survive - just. In the early months of the season I warned the gRs that it would be a season of struggle and they mocked, claiming there was no way in a million years that a team backed by the billions of Mital and the ego of Fernandes could go down. Then, when they collectively despaired, I explained that Rangers would survive courtesy of the failings of others - and that's EXACTLY how it has worked out.
Mind you, it sounds very much as if Fernandes owes a large cheque to a certain Chris Foy whose perverse refereeing decisions robbed Bolton of the victory that would have seen them survive at QPR's expense. There's a lot of talk about goal line technology but that would simply scratch the surface. Today a team was relegated because of the incompetence of a referee and that can't be right. Surely once technology is accepted, all controversial goals should be referred to a fourth official.
What a great last day of the Prem it proved to be - with Bolton robbed, QPR surviving and Ferguson choking on his red wine with that last gasp Man City winner. Only in England can this happen season after season - which is why, for all its technical flaws, the English game remains the most exciting in the world.
Anyway, congratulations to QPR and to Mark Hughes. Let's hope we will meet each other next season and that Barton will still be a Hoop and not in Claret and Blue!
