Still better than a left back that can’t go forward or defend 

Yeah, from what I have seen he could be our midfield answer. And cover for left back.

And sign another left back also and move Bell on.

Reading QPR fans opinions, common consensus is hes very good going forward and poor defensively. Some suggestions that hes better in midfield.

Sure that him being a set piece taker will be playing a big part in him being so far ahead of everyone else. Even so, that's an incredible statistic. Whilst Gally rightly came in for plenty of stick last year, that sort of service to him could lead to us seeing a totally different player.

Most QPR fans speak very highly of him, both defensively and attacking. From what it sounds like he’ll very much suit our current style of play, which is a massive bonus.

Yes, the chances he has created are fantastic. I'm all for winning 5-3 every game. ?

Ah he is the set piece taker? That's a little different then, though a good source of free kicks etc is always welcome. But Charlie Mulgrew had far better goal stats at CB...and we know how that turned out...

As long as he can actually defend, which it mostly sounds like he can, I'm very much excited if it's him. As has been said, Bell can't, so even a fairly decent defender who can also smash goals and assists is a huge, huge upgrade.

Anyone else feel like there’s been a shift in the managers confidence in us targeting a promotion push over the last week? He’s done a couple of interviews, starting with the one before Ayala when he said players wanted to see our ambition. Then we signed Ayala and now he’s talking about us being able to ‘win lots of games’ in this league and also commenting that we’re not just here to develop the likes of Davenport and Buckley because our focus is on winning games and getting out of this league....I’m excited by the chat. They’re obv serious about going up with the signings we have made plus the interest in Manning.

I also think it looks like we’re targeting a purchased midfielder (like Whiteman)...with comments about £1.5m loan fees on young loaners and his preference to buy...felt like a shot across the bows in terms of his thinking.

Hope you're right but he came out with the play-off chat last summer. He needs to concentrate on winning games. We haven't won many since football resumed after lockdown.

I think he does. Seems like the only plausible reason for him being out there on his own anyway. Flip side of that is that he is considered good enough to take free kicks! Like you I don't really know much about the defensive side of his game, but I'm taking heart from that he seems to be leaving because of a contract dispute, rather than him being a defensive liability.

Nail on the head. We need to win some bloody games. Feels like we’ve had a pretty awful record, save for that one month run, since the turn of the year (and yes I know we had a long break).

Is the interest in Manning even confirmed? Even in the LT Manning having been suggested rather than linked on here was seemingly mentioned as a "historic" target with Rich Sharpe saying that he didnt know Mowbrays mystery target.

Obviously Mowbray has history for revisiting former targets so its plausible nonetheless.

Also totally agree that actions speak louder than words. Have to get the season underway tomorrow after 2 losses this week.

We've won 3 of our last 13 league games....and only 7 out of 23 in the 2nd half of last season.
