As is becoming increasingly the case, my time to write seems to be becoming shorter each week so I'm going to keep this bit brief (hooray I hear you say).
After my trip to QPR v Birmingham on Saturday, I managed to squeeze in another visit to the Theatre of Shattered Dreams (aka Loftus Road) on Wednesday to see the almost derby game against Brighton.
Most newspapers described this 0-0 draw as being quite dull for the neutral but I enjoyed it nonetheless!
Yesterday Rangers got back to winning ways at Yeovil to go three points clear at the top of the Championship. After failing to see them win all last season, I'm already feeling drunk on all the points we've accrued already. Long may it continue.

I received the following feedback this morning: "It was amazing!!! Met up with some fans and had the best day!!! What a great club!!! Thanx!"
I aim to please so if you want a similar recommendation or have any other questions about watching football in London please don't hesitate to ask.
Anyway, that's enough about my week. Remember to let me know what you've been up to and if you're interested in reviewing a ground within the London area for this blog then get in touch.

If you know of any other deals I may have missed or your club is running a promotion let me know.
As always, check with clubs before you travel just in case a game has been called off or venue has been changed. Also, please let me know if anything is wrong or missing.
Details on all of this week's games can be found in the following match map. If you've never used it before, please note that when there is more than one match at a specific ground you'll only be able to see individual match pins if you zoom right in. If you don't, the pins obscure each other and you might miss them. To avoid this, you can also scroll down the list of games on the left side of the map page to make sure you get all the information.
Also if you're unfamiliar with the English league structure I indicate the level at which an individual league sits in the national 'pyramid' with the Premier League at the top (Level 1) and various minor leagues at the bottom (Level 10). Typically a top level game will see crowds of anywhere between 20,000-60,000. These figures will gradually decline as you go down the leagues until you get to Levels 8-10 where attendances of 150 or less are most common.
