We are QPR. We are Premier League.

After 15 years, my beloved QPR are finally back in the big time; the Premier League. On Saturday, Adel Taarabt lifted the first trophy QPR have collected in 39 years.
After so many dark days of supporting the Rs - which included witnessing footballing giants Vauxhall Motors beat the Rs on penalties - it really is quite something to think that the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Fulham and Man Utd will be coming to W12 (for a beat-down) next season.
Promotion is all down to Yorkshire's finest Neil Warnock. Just 13 months ago he took over a club (again) flirting with relegation and proceeded to transform them into league winners. His undoubted masterstroke was the permanent signing of Moroccan maestro Taarabt. He may well be an utter brat but he is also the best player in the world not playing for Barcelona FA. Fact.
I could go on for days. I won't. Here's a round-up of a very special day in the club's history. Love and respect to the Row G, R block boys who have shared the pain.
