The reaction from some QPR fans on Twitter towards a reported breakthrough in the long search for a new training ground was decidedly mixed.

This potentially crucial breakthrough comes just a couple of weeks after the R’s were forced to abandon plans to build a training ground at Warren Farm following a legal challenge and opposition from residents’ groups, as per West London Sport. It meant that a project which was first mooted way back in January 2012 ultimately had to be shelved.
As noted by West London Sport, the club already has a presence at the Imperial College site, which is the base for their academy teams.
Are you confident that QPR will complete the training ground deal?
Reports of the near-complete acquisition of the new training facility drew a variety of reactions from these QPR supporters on Twitter, some of whom are more confident than others about its fate:
