Sunday People/Tom Hopkinson - QPR'S 2-DAY WEEK CHEEK
- Queens Park Rangers can expect another angry backlash from fans after it emerged that their players are being asked to train only twice a week.
- People Sport understands the club decided to cut their weekly sessions over the last couple of weeks after both promotion and relegation were ruled out.
- And although they expect to up their training again this week, the news is sure to infuriate supporters, who are still paying top prices to watch players who are only working part-time.
- And they will be once again spitting feathers as their managerless outfit lurches from one problem to another.
- There is also unrest among the Rangers playing staff over plans for an end-ofseason tour to Bahrain which will cut into their summer breaks. Rangers are sponsored by Gulf Air, the Kingdom's flag carrier."

From The Sunday Times 2009 Sunday Times Rich List
- "...The Rich List’s biggest loser, Lakshmi Mittal, has seen £16.9 billion evaporate from the collapse of the world steel market this year. Now worth £10.8 billion, Mittal remains the richest person in Britain.
- He has sustained losses of more than three times the level of Roman Abramovich, his nearest rival in the downshifting stakes, who was down £4.7 billion. The Russian’s surviving £7 billion makes him the second richest person in the UK. .." Sunday Times

And a Match Report:Sunday People/Alistair Grant - QPR cobbled together a shocking
- Qpr cobbled together a shocking finish to their home campaign.
- Managerless Rangers, who were tipped for promotion but will finish in mid-table, were easily second-best as Paul Sturrock's Argyle stashed a point in their survival kitty.
- The Pilgrims dominated the chances, leaving QPR co-owners Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone desperately searching for a replacement for sacked Paulo Sousa to deliver the success their millions demand.
- Plymouth were on top from the start, with Paul Gallagher shooting straight at Radek Cerny and chesting down to volley another shot over.
- Karl Duguid almost bagged the opener on 17 minutes - but Jamie Mackie's superb cross bobbled and Duguid skewed wide from four yards.
- Cerny gifted Argyle another chance when he spilled a centre, but Ashley Barnes shot into the stand.
- Rangers woke up and Patrick Agyemang suddenly looked dangerous up front on his return from three months out with a thigh injury.
- Hoops' Mikele Leigertwood danced past three defenders before tumbling as his shot was deflected into Romain Larrieu's grasp.
- After the break, Gallagher snatched at a volley and fired wide and, late on, Mackie twice shot too close to Cerny from decent chances.
Qpr: Cerny 6 - Leigertwood 5, Stewart 6, Gorkss 5, Connolly 6 - Routledge 5, Mahon 5, *MILLER 8 (Ramage, 62mins, 5), Cook 6 (Balanta, 57mins, 6) - Agyemang 6 (German, 66mins, 5), Helguson 5.
