February: European Climb
I leaned back in my chair and sighed. February was another disaster.
A 5-0 loss to Southampton, a 3-2 loss to Villa, and a 1-2 loss to Swansea, was then followed by a 1-1 draw to Manchester United, and then a 2-0 aggregate win over Roma to progress to the next stage of the Europa League. Hopefully this signifies a form improvement.
I have little hopes now about finishing in 5th or 6th place, because we are literally about 20 points away from 5th place now. Instead, I hope to win the Europa League, so we can have at least some form of European football next season. Big ambitions, huh?

At this moment, Mark came in and saw me looking at the documents.
"I see you're already reading them," he walked over. "Tough month, huh?"
"Yeah," I sighed.
"At least we are progressing further into the Europa League," Mark grinned. "Triumphing over Roma is a fantastic achievement, you know. It shows how far we have progressed from a Championship club."
I nodded, agreeing.
QPR Player of the MonthNedum Onuoha
Nedum Onuoha has been simply unbeatable at the back, winning three Man of the Match awards this month in light of his key defensive performances. Has managed to stay injury-free despite the injury problems that has been ravaging the QPR squad so far. Without him and the other defenders, we reckon we would be bottom of the league.
