Not sure how many of you would have seen the video diaries I did when QPR went on a preseason tour to Germany, so I thought it’d be worth posting them on here. It was an interesting few days. Lots of work on getting the team shape sorted with three at the back and integrating Rio and Steven Caulker into the team. It was an eventful few days too. Segway crashes. Two games. Danny Simpson’s embarrassing man crush. The gaffer’s posh food tastes. A bit of table tennis. And some god-awful initiation songs.
An early morning session in the UK then off to Germany.
Our first game against and another 1-0 thanks to Charlie Austin.
Steven Caulker signs, a light day’s training and then out for dinner… and some rapping from Rio.
More team shape work, an afternoon of fitness work, a BBQ at the hotel because and Clint Hill’s snoring.
Lots of segway crashes, an afternoon on Twitter and some really filthy language from Rio.
Our last game in Germany ends in a 2-0 defeat. But results aren’t the main thing in pre-season. It’s about coming together as a team, getting a few minutes under your belt and getting your fitness levels up.
