Amit Bhatia UnLeashed - part three

Amit Bhatia is a trustee of QPR in the Community Trust and is an active member as well. His work for the Trust has earned him the Emerald Knight Community Business In Sport award. He is clearly a man who loves to help others - he is doer not a talker!

Bhatia believes that a football club has "a greater service to its community than just providing the football side of it. It`s something I feel very passionately about since I`ve got involved in it." He has even spoken to the QPR players to remind them that they have a service to their community; but equally he feels that the fans should also remember that we need to do our part in supporting the Trust`s work specifically and the community in general.

It is especially heartening to know that the Vice Chairman of our Club has such deep-rooted interests in the wider QPR community - and that we already have seen the work he has done. Because, it goes a long way to show how genuinely passionate Bhatia is about QPR and, ultimately, gives us all renewed heart that the right people are now running our Club (at last!)

For example, Bhatia went on to talk about the transfer policy starting with this summer`s transfer window. We all know, quite clearly, what the transfer policy was of the previous regime. But Bhatia`s thoughts on this point made for very, very interesting listening (whilst also containing yet another slightly veiled dig at his predecessor!) "One of the big changes that I want there to be going forward is that I want to be able to explain, whether it be a budget or a vision for the Club, to the manager in charge. And from that point, it is the manager`s decision, with his professional people, to strengthen and make the squad the best that`s possible within that budget."

Are you getting the sense, as I have, that this Boardroom change will be more than mere window-dressing?! Wait for this then!

"What happens at the end of the season or in the January transfer window is a decision that I want to rest with the person who we have empowered to make those decisions."

Bhatia went on to reinforce his desire that we understand that he intends for things to change - and for the good of the Club! There may have been some difficult patches in the recent past - not just results but managerial changes - but he doesn`t believe we should take them too seriously, referring to them as "a small blip in this long history, even since I`ve been involved with the Club."

"Continue to have faith, continue to come out and support your team because the team needs you,"Bhatia continued.

"Have great trust that often in life things happen for a reason. If we`ve fallen upon hard times in the last few months, things are going to change!"

What you don`t get to see in my article, which I saw in the interview, was the enigmatic smile that accompanied this last comment - believe me when I say, that smile spoke a thousand words in itself! And they were all positive!!

Bhatia vowed:"I will endeavour, in my ability, to do the absolute best I can for this Club. My commitment to the Club is unwavering, is solid. Hence I found it important to get more involved, to step in and I`ll ask them that is, us the fans to support me in doing so."

So there you have it! The voice of an honest man who has my respect and trust and faith. With Bhatia involved I, personally, do think we can kick on - we just need to get those points on the board to ensure that we are kicking on from this league not a lower one (oh heaven forbid!!)

Yeah I'm sure their transfer ideas are much better than Flavio's, that's why they let Sterling go to Liverpool
