Hoops: Smith stars on derby day

IT’S arguably Rangers’ biggest game of the season to date tonight (Friday).

So, naturally, we’ve produced another bumper edition of your new-look Hoops – the official matchday programme of QPR – for this evening’s west London derby against Fulham at Loftus Road.

Former Cottagers striker Matt Smith is the subject of our feature player interview in Issue 09 for 2017/18, with the R’s looking to extend their unbeaten home Sky Bet Championship record further still.

Throughout the campaign, Hoops is paying tribute to our #LoftusRoad100 celebrations – commemorating 100 years since QPR’s first match at our famous home in 1917.

This week, we also hear from R’s boss Ian Holloway, sidelined skipper Nedum Onuoha and former stopper Paul Parker – who played for both Rangers and Fulham.

Elsewhere, Conor Washington stars in our new ‘Home & Away’ feature, Paul Jenkins – aka @QPR_Stats – poses his latest ‘Half-Time Teaser’, and there’s columns, too, from Aidan Magee (Sky Sports), Clive Whittingham (Loft for Words) and Sharon Smith (Irish R’s).

Fun and games for younger R’s comes in the shape of a four-page ‘Junior Hoops, and we also get the lowdown on Fulham in a detailed visitors’ section.

For all that and much more, pick up a copy of Hoops tonight – available to purchase in and around Loftus Road for £3 on matchdays.
