Hogan Ephraim is one of the QPR squad to go down in history as they clinched the Championship title in 2011.
The 27-year-old made over 100 league appearances for Rangers in a six and a half year association with the club and was a regular in their title winning season in 2011.
Things went downhill for the winger as new players came in and changes were made at the club, meaning he went on a number of loan moves.
But, despite some difficult moments, he still has fond memories of his time at Loftus Road.
GetWestLondon spoke to Ephraim about his time with the club and below are his thoughts on his six years with QPR.
Moving to QPR
"I first went there on loan from West Ham. I'd just finished my first ever loan spell at Colchester and I went back to West Ham and I had a phone call from Mick Harford who had just joined as John Gregory's assistant and I'd enjoyed working with him at Colchester.
"When the opportunity came it was an ideal situation. John Gregory said Lee Cook has just left and we have a team full of hard workers.
"We want someone to give us some magic. It was something I enjoyed. When I joined we weren't picking up results and that was just when the takeover was starting.
"We brought in loan players like Mikele Leigertwood and Rowan Vine and things changed. When January came it was a no-brainer to sign permanently."
The first few years
"The first few years were a roller-coaster ride with people going in and out and managers changing. It was a good experience.
"The only regret I have is I think the vital years for a player are between 18 and 22 and I think I worked with seven or eight different managers. Some couldn't speak English and some cared about the next result.
"As an individual it probably wasn't the best thing for my development. I enjoyed it but once Neil Warnock came in and we had that incredible season."
The promotion season (2010/11)
"It was surreal for me. Ever since I'd been at QPR we didn't really win away from home. Being a young player and you were thinking the home team has the advantage.
"We were going to Ipswich and looking at the scoreboard and we're 3-0 up. We'd play Sheffield United and go 3-0 up in 20 minutes.
"You're getting a sense of belief. We weren't playing well at times. We were battered at Derby, 2-0 down, and we came back in the 90th minute. We felt unbeatable in a way.
"Adel Tarrabt was pulling out magic in every game it seemed. In the last few weeks, we were a bit apprehensive. There were more 1-0 and 0-0s. Overall it was great.
"To top it all off in QPR style, we couldn't celebrate when we got promoted as we thought we could be dropped points. It all turned out fine in the end."
The Premier League and the takeover
"It was tough because I'd done very well in pre-season so I thought I was in with a chance. I didn't play against Bolton where we lost 4-0.
"I then played well against Everton and played well. Warnock was open with the players. He'd told him Flavio Briatore had told him there would be only free transfers.
"The only money he'd pay was for DJ Campbell as he liked him. On the eve of the season, Tony Fernandes came in and Warnock had a bigger warchest to play with.
"I don't blame him because if I was a manager and had the chance to sign Joey Barton, Anton Ferdinand, Shaun Wright-Phillips – these are proven players and he had to go with that. We had an international break and I got a voicemail saying I hadn't made the 25-man squad.
"I went on loan to Charlton and did well there. Warnock called me and said Hogs I've been watching the game against Huddersfield and I regret not putting you in the 25.
"Just at the end of my loan was when Warnock got replaced and I had six, seven months left on my contract. I thought a new man was going to come in, by players and you never know how it's going to go."
The Hughes era
"The first day Hughes arrived we had a reserve game against Tottenham and played really well. He said you're in my plans.
"I played against Villa but he told me I wasn't going to be in the 25 as I'd been in League One and he wanted people up to the pace of the Premier League.
"He said I want to give you a new deal and won't let you go out on loan unless you sign it as I don't want you to enjoy football anywhere else and sign elsewhere.
"He made me feel really wanted and at the start of the season he said I'd be in the 25. I was riding a crest of the wave.
"I had another new contract at the start of the season. We weren't picking up results. I went to see him ahead of Man United and I said I'm ready to give it my all.
"I was going to be in the team and then he got sacked the day before which killed me. I'm still on good terms with him and see him when I go on holiday.
"It was disappointing not to play games in the Premier League, I understand them going out to try and buy the finished product."
How Hughes changed QPR
"The training ground was terrible for any standard. The standard of the pitches, the canteen, the food you'd have. There'd be next to no analysis after games.
"It was nowhere a Championship or League One standard. He came in and flipped it around. We were doing saliva tests before training. The strength and conditioning and weights.
"He got a new chef who was preparing great food and people were losing fat. Before and after game he'd give us video analysis of what we were doing. He was honest with us.
"I believe if he was given time he'd have done well. I think the club would have gone down that season but I think in the long run he'd have brought stability and they'd prosper. Every full season he's had he's never finished below 10th."
Things go wrong for Hughes
"I don't understand why Tony Fernandes it to blame. If he's backing the manager you can't blame the owner. If it was the other way round you can.
"I don't think Hughes was to blame. I think the players were playing badly. One of the criticisms you never like as a player and 99 per cent of the time I never believe is that the players weren't giving their all.
"There's no way each player gave their maximum in that game. I'd guarantee it'd be the lowest running stats in their history.
"For me, he put 11 players on the pitch, some who have won great stuff in their career. Stuff like that summed it up."
Redknapp turns up
"It was a strange one. He oversaw the Man United game so I was an unused substitute. Those who didn't play trained on the Sunday, which was his first day.
"What struck me, and I'm not moaning about it, I remember we were doing a passing drill and he's come round and shaken the boys hands and speaking to them.
"Shaun Wright-Phillips, Anton Ferdinand Ji Sung Park were there. He's taken time with them and then there wasn't a hello or a handshake so I got my head down.
"I felt when a manager sees me he likes what he sees. I wasn't on the bench in the next game but I felt it'd turn around."
The turning point
"The turning point was when we played Man City at home at the end of January. The day before Jamie Mackie was injured. Shaun Wright-Phillips was injured.
"The day before they told me I'm playing in the reserve game. The reserve game was in the morning. I was confused and thought they'd give them fitness tests.
"After 20 minutes I came off and I thought this isn't right. Marc Bircham told me that he'd had a phone call and I was in the squad. I had to go home and be at the stadium for 5-5.15pm.
"I got to the stadium and he put two goalkeepers on the bench. That for me was the ultimate humiliation. I was fuming with that.
"I didn't say anything to him but I was fuming. I phoned my agent and said I have to get out of here. I've not said anything to the manager.
"He hasn't spoken to me and there are now two goalkeepers on the bench and no wide players. He said he'd get a loan deal sorted.
"My agent phoned me on deadline day and said I was going on loan to Charlton. After that game, Redknapp hadn't come to me to explain it.
"I took my boots from the training ground. I was watching deadline day and Odemwingie was in his car. It's getting later and later.
"I called my agent and he said he'd not heard anything from QPR. It got to 10pm and my agent said QPR were telling him no.
"He said Charlton were paying a smaller percentage of the wage than MK Dons were prepared. Charlton were in the Championship, MK Dons are in League One.
"I went to the ground looking for Phil Beard or the manager – neither of them are anywhere to be seen.
"Karl Robinson rings me and said we'd agreed it and I was coming to MK Dons. There was a minute left until the deadline. I said I have massive respect for what you're doing but I need to be in the Championship. If I go to League One. I've been at Charlton before. He says he understood.
"Phil Beard comes out and the window had shut. I asked what happened. I said at 1pm it was agreed and the goalposts had moved. After the two goalkeepers on the bench; what's going on?
"He said the manager was making a statement to the owners that we need players. It's nothing against you.
"I felt that's fine if I was a 16, 17 year old academy graduate. I'm 25 years of age, played over 100 games. I don't think you should make that statement at my expense.
"Phil Beard said he agreed but Charlton weren't paying enough wages. I thought something would get sorted."
Toronto and the final season
"Two or three days after that, I had a text from Ryan Nelsen. I knew what he's going to say. I said Ryan you're a man of principle and I'm going to come and play for you. I said I won't leave elsewhere but to play with you.
"He and Phil Beard got it done. It was a bit sad how the whole story panned out over that two or three week period. I'd been there five years and I'd never been a minute's problem.
"I wasn't sure why it happened. They felt the manager wanted to make a statement I felt it was out of order to do it to me. After that, I've gone to Toronto and there was no repairing our relationship.
"We hadn't said hello to each other and he'd offered no explanation. I felt he didn't have time for me nor care for me. Ryan called me in on a Friday morning to say he wasn't going to play and that QPR were cancelling the loan early to have three weeks off before pre-season.
"I went back to QPR for pre-season and then I was training with the kids. I was there with Park, Anton Ferdinand, Andy Johnson, Bobby Zamora; bombed off with the kids.
"A lot of them ended up leaving the club. I thought I couldn't see Redknapp being there for long. Until Zamora scored at Wembley I thought there was a small chance I could get back.
"I'd been written off at QPR and a new man would come in and there'd be a new contract or I'd be playing as they'd see I was bringing something useful to the squad.
"I felt if Zamora hadn't scored and Derby won the manager would have lost his job and a new man would have given me a trial during pre-season. I love that club and it's one I hold the most feelings towards from my career."
