Kicking And Screening Featured Film: The Four Year Plan

By Simplyfutb01 @simplyjuan11

Director Mat Hodgson present The Four Year at this year’s Kicking and Screening Festival in New York. Founded in 1882, Queens Park Rangers are one of England’s oldest football clubs. They have never been as successful as such London rivals as Arsenal and Chelsea. The closest QPR came to winning the championship was a runner-up finish in 1976.

But QPR have always had some of the most passionate and devoted supporters in all of England. Taking in a match at Loftus Road, the club’s home stadium, remains one of the experiences of a soccer fan’s life.

They have never really been repaid for their faith and devotion. The 2000s were a particularly difficult time for the club as they bounced between the 2nd and 3rd tiers of English football and struggled with financial problems and executive controversy.

Hodgson’s in-depth expose begins, then, in 2007, when a new billionaire ownership group arrives on the scene. They have big ambitions, giving the club’s leadership just four years to take the team to the promised land: the English Premier League.

With those kinds of expectations and pressures, it pays to have a plan.
