Out with the old, in with the new – QPR’s transfer business was a breath of fresh air

It may be worth only whispering this; but it seems that there is a faint glimmer of hope at QPR! Anyone who follows football will know that QPR’s manner of trading over the past few years is to do it the hard, stupid way. Now whilst the club is still far from perfect, recent events have encouraged me. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s team have not been setting the league alight, drawing far too many games, but the team have become harder to...

Farewell Charlie Austin

Over the past few years Queens Park Rangers have made some rather questionable signings. Shaun Wright-Phillips and Jose Bosingwa immediately spring to mind as players that the Rs faithful would have happily driven to any club in the land as long as it meant they wouldn’t have to wear the Hoops again.

5 things new QPR manager Hasselbaink needs to address

Late last week, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was named as QPR’s new Manager, making him the fifth permanent appointment in five years. With that in mind let’s look at five pressing issues that the Dutchman needs to deal with. 1. Promotion The P word.

Why would Jimmy swap ‘stable’ Burton for QPR ‘shambles’?

On Friday night, Kevin Blackwell took temporary charge of the Hoops for an away game against high-flying Middlesbrough as Neil Warnock – the club’s interim manager – had to pull out for personal reasons. Let’s be clear this is not me having a go at Warnock, and I hope whatever the reasons are, that all is well, or as good as it can be.
