WEST Brom might be going for the title on Sunday, but we don't want to give them anything - instead we want to send out a message to the entire Football League.

Our opponents are on their way to the Premier League, but we want to be in their shoes this time next year. It's a great opportunity to look at West Brom, respect what they've achieved and think about where we want to be.

It's only seven months since the last time we played West Brom, but it feels like an eternity because so much has changed since then.

This is the new QPR and we want to be successful. I believe we've got even more potential than West Brom and the key to realising it, in my eyes, is desire more than skill.

Congratulations to West Brom, though. There are one or two aggressive, long-ball merchants in the top six this season, but Tony Mowbray's boys have consistently been the best footballing side and it's one of the rare occasions when the cream has risen to the top.

Whoever else goes up this season, I'd say West Brom are the most likely to survive because of their style.

We've played some good football ourselves since the gaffer arrived and one thing I'm certain of is that you'll see a different game from the one at the Hawthorns.

Of course, it'd help if we can keep 11 men on the pitch - a problem that made life very difficult at Norwich last Saturday.

Like thousands of others, I couldn't understand why Damion was sent off - he did push the guy, but surely the referee couldn't construe it as a professional foul.

I don't understand why we lost the appeal either. Maybe it's a case of not wanting to undermine the referee, but I really feel for Damion.

I feel for Reece Crowther as well - he was getting ready to come on for his debut because we all assumed it was Campy who'd be off.

It also meant I broke a personal record when myself and Hogan were sacrificed - that's certainly the quickest I've ever been substituted!

The supporters deserve a mention for the way they sang all afternoon despite the way the game was going.

I take my hat off to them - it's easy to go and see your team just round the corner, but travelling long distances is another matter and I can't wait for us to give those fans something to really cheer.
