It's a shame that QPR's late heroics against Brentford aren't what are making the headlines today, but instead it's Ian Holloway's face who sits on the backpages.

A last-gasp fight-back against the Bees should have sent the fans home happy after securing a draw from the jaws of defeat, but instead fans of the club were left shocked and annoyed as they heard Ollie's verdict on the game.

Holloway took the usual steps of praising his players, and praising the opposition's players, before going off-script and calling out the QPR fans who had left before the end and missed the comeback.

History suggests this is something that he may live to regret.

Opinion is split on whether what he said was correct, but one thing that is certain is that Ollie should not have been the man to deliver that message.

Fans who left before the end will have immediately regretted leaving Loftus Road early when they saw the final score; they certainly didn't need Holloway rubbing salt in the wounds.

QPR's form has been disjointed this season, and the verdict on the role being done by Ian Holloway is decidedly mixed, but one way to tip the balance is to have a pop at the fans.

Football supporters are the blood running through a club's veins, and by criticising a group who will be around long after you have moved on is an ironically rookie mistake for a manager with such experience.

There were a number of variables in place which could have affected the attendance last night, including the fact that it was a midweek, evening fixture, but you also have to take into consideration the fact that it was live on Sky.

The crowd at Loftus Road was particularly sparse with just over 13,000 people in attendance, so having a go at those who did actually make the effort to head to Loftus Road in the first place seems completely nonsensical and merely shows the level of stress that Ian Holloway is under.

Ian Holloway continues QPR fan criticism after draw with Brentford

Fans pay good money to attend football games, and while I'd never do it myself, fans are perfectly entitled to leave a game early if they feel they aren't getting value for money, or as Ollie alluded to, if fans do need to catch the last bus or train home.

For a privileged member of the QPR hierarchy to call out those fans was unnecessary, counter-productive and completely against the community run image that the club has worked so hard to achieve.

One thing is for certain, Ollie must apologise for his comments in an attempt to limit the damage caused, or risk tipping the balance of QPR fans calling for his head in a far from spectacular run of form.
