QPR'S new board intend to reopen fans' forums as part of a campaign to draw disillusioned supporters back to Loftus Road.

Meetings with fans' representatives had been held on a regular basis until Flavio Briatore took over the club in 2007 and they may return following Briatore's recent resignation as chairman of QPR Holdings Ltd.

Asked whether fans' forums were on the agenda for the new regime, chairman Ishan Saksena told the Times: "Absolutely. We want to communicate more with the fans and start a dialogue with them.

"That is a strategy we're in the process of forming and the commitment is there to do that. We need to have the support of our fans and keep building that up.

"We have stability back in the club and we want to do things in a financially prudent way. I think the most important decision we took was to get Neil Warnock as manager.

"That's our first real solid attempt to show the fans that we remain true to our vision of being successful in the future. I'm confident the fans will get the message and I'm relying on them to be part of the QPR family."

Saksena confirmed that he will work 'closely' with Warnock but, unlike his predecessor, does not plan to be involved in football affairs.

"There's the football side, which Neil will handle, and I'll handle the business and financial aspect," he added.

"We'll work in close consultation with the board prior to making decisions. Decisions were made in the past and some of them could have been altered in retrospect, but the intention was always to do the best thing.

"The dream is still there of making it to the Premier League. I know Neil will be able to help us get there, but right now we're concentrating on the short-term, trying to solidify our position in the Championship.
