Tjaronn Chery wanted the ground to devour him up in one swift mouthful when he missed his penalty last weekend but the Ducthman knows someone up there likes him.

"The next one will go in. I will make sure of that. Missing a penalty is an awful feeling but it could have been worse. Imagine if we had lost? I don’t even want to think about it," said the 28-year-old.

"We got a huge win over a team that is in play-off contention and the fans were second to none. That is the least they deserved after our poor form at home this season. We made the first steps towards putting an end to that and building our points tally. The new boss has the lads feeling good and the atmosphere in training is great. There is a real buzz about the place."

Holloway is the fourth manager through the door in the last four years but there is a sense Monsieur QPR is here to stay and the fans would not want it any other way.

The decibels were more than an octave higher last Saturday as Norwich were engulfed under the wave of passion and enthusiasm that Holloway has brought to W12.

A new manager usually brings success in the early days but the Hoops need stability. A word I have been repeatedly churning out in this blog and one you are tired of reading; and I am of writing.

Victories are now needed against Ipswich, Wolves and Rotherham. Three teams below the R’s in the standings before Derby and Aston Villa come to town in the lead up to Christmas.

These games will decide whether or not your Christmas turkey goes down painfully; Andrews set to consume or rather more like, 'Brandy anyone?'.

The trip up to Portman Road does not look as bad as it did a few weeks ago. Beers at the ready for the drive up the A12. Hands on the wheel at all times, of course.
