Following a decisive opening pre-season fixture away to Gary Waddock's Aldershot yesterday, Jim Magilton spoke to Sky Sports News. Although the new boss didn't always look calm and relaxed, as he watched his new boys go through their paces in this, the first of seven pre-season friendlies, he was very positive about the Rs' chances in the looming 2009/2010 season.

An emphatic 4-0 victory, courtesy of goals by midfield maestro Akos Buzsaky (hands off Stoke!), followed by our strikers: Helguson, Agyemang and Blackstock, got Magilton's career as Rs boss off to a flying start.

We shouldn't underestimate Aldershot who had already played a couple of friendlies before yesterday, following a very successful season last time out. And we shouldn't forget the disaster of last year's pre-season friendlies - so it was good to see us win so convincingly.

'They are certainly better than 11th,' claimed big Jim about our team after the match.

'I think if you can get a little bit of momentum, especially at our level. The Championship is a really tough division and every game, every Saturday, you've got to be focussed on your job, and you've got to really grind out results.

'I think that if we can get off to a good start then anything is possible at this level!' Magilton concluded.

As the Sky Sports News interviewer pointed out - there lie greater challenges ahead than yesterday's for the Rs - but, I think, this was a good start for us. It was particularly great to see the likes of Buzsaky not just play for 45 minutes, but score and create chances, including the one from which Helguson scored, as if he hadn't missed most of last year through injury.

And it is looking possible that Blackstock may have a future at QPR as well - so long as he keeps on sticking the ball in the net for us! Yesterday, of our 4 strikers, only Vine didn't actually score - not a bad start! (OK, David Connolly didn't score - but, technically, he's not ours - yet?!)

So - off to Slovenia now - let's see what that trip brings us!

I think we are better than 11th as well - it was an underachieving season last time I think.

There was so much we had to contend with - other than just the opposition each week - like disruption coz of the change in managers/style/etc; loads of unfortunate but long-term injuries; Rehman being kicked out of the Platinum Bar . . .!! It'll be better this year - I feel it in my bones ;-)

Yeah, really believe we are going to be a force to be reckoned with this season. 2008-9 was such a let down but strongly feel that we are going up this time. Go on you "R"s !!!

We should do quite a bit better this year providing Stoke leave Akos alone and he doesn't get injured against Prem opposition in the Cup.

I think it will be a better season this time out, and I think playoffs are a distinct possibility - but we have to take into account the division is FAR harder this season. I was looking at relegation candidates and the list suddenly got a lot shorter! Barnsley, Doncaster and Scunthorpe are three I would punt for, because Derby and Forest will be stronger, Plymouth have got cash etc.
