I don't know what QPR owners were expecting last season and this season. I thought Holloway did fine last season. 

I wouldn't be surprise to see Gareth Ainsworth in charge there by Christmas

can you please say more? 

There’s basically a section about McClaren who he describes as intentionally hopping from club to club to destroy them, but with more comedy than that

 

 

this is partly what I mean

I haven't defence McClaren at all. The blame for QPR demise is the owners fault for poor management of the club for a number of years and poor transfer business

No where in my post I absolve him of any blame for today 7-1 loss but talk about the owners and their management of the club over a number of years. 

I suggest Osayi-Samuel but not repeatedly suggesting so please why write that I don't know. 

I have said I don't understand Holloway sacking or the reasons behind it. 

Nothing to do with those prats in Zurich at all? Seems like Fernandes has had enough of their interference. 

Of course that does not absolve some poor decision making but hardly Venkyesque regime is it?

Ive only just found out Mclaren is the manager of QPR after reading about their 7-1 loss. haha. How on earth is he still getting employed? He must be in the same category as Coyle as joke managers.

Very happy however as it makes it easier for us!

I think Dunkin' Donut is in a category of his own to be fair. 🤡

How ridiculous that he was ever appointed manager of England. Absolute joke.

Who would have predicted Bolton starting this well? You have to hand it to Parkinson, he's done a very good job there in difficult circumstances. 

Spoke to a mate this morning who is a Wanderers fan, he reckons Jason Lowe was MOM at Reading and he is a cracking player  !!!!!

First 7 games of last season Leeds won 5 and drew 2 and the media were beside themselves with excitement that it was Leeds' year and they were going up. Then they fell away and ended up finishing in the bottom half.

Not saying they will do again this season but it really is tiring listening to all the pro-Leeds hype on tv, you'd have thought after last year they would have learned their lessons and would keep quiet for the time being until the season was slightly more advanced.

Leeds are the Liverpool of the Championship. Media love them and are desperate for them to be successful after such a barren spell. Liverpool they would love to win the League after 30 years(THIRTY YEARS) without winning it whilst Leeds the massive club that hasn't even appeared in the top division for 15 YEARS and they're desperate for that to end.

Only club from one of the UK's biggest cities, with supporters clubs throughout Yorkshire and they attract crowds of around 30k - often much lower when they are having an average season.

As an example, they get similar crowds to Villa (though they share their city with Birmingham City, with West Brom on the edge of the city boundary too), yet unlike Villa, they have this ridiculous media profile that other, similar size clubs even in the PL don't have.

Brentford brought in a young lad from Arsenal, supposedly been offered a new contract at Arsenal. How much of that is procedure so they can claim a development fee or down to seeing a future for him I don't know.

Btw .....you are all aware by now that Leeds are on Sky tomorrow night?

:lol:

 

 

Apparently Sky had a lot of complaints last weekend from people thinking their set top box was  faulty as no Leeds game was showing, so to save their call centre waiting times they have resumed normal service

Buy nothing but lower league players and eventually you're going to end up in the lower leagues. It's why I didn't want us raiding League 1 clubs in the summer.

You can sign one or two, but there needs to be quality control.

Anyone still thinking McClaren is a decent manager? Surely no serious club will hire him if this continues at QPR. A brief stint in Singapore or Brunei perhaps?

The only saving grace for QPR is that it's difficult to be cut a drift in the Championship, even with our disastrous start to the Coyle era we still managed to take it to the last day. If they make a change now a couple of results could swing things round for them quite quickly. Les Ferdinand and the CEO Hoos need to take responsibility for the appointment of McClaren, I want to say he's a busted flush although I'm not sure he was ever a flush to be honest.

People can say what they like about McClaren but his record as a manager is far better than Coyles. Whilst he wouldn't have been top of my list his record in the Championship at Derby is pretty reasonable. He failed miserably with England and Newcastle. Also of importance was his 'head coach' suitability and willingness to work under a D of F. A lot of their odd decisions seem to have come under Les Ferdinand yet their fans won't really get on his back.

For all their problems and poor decisions I expect QPR will ditch him quite quickly and appoint someone else, rather than allow him to remain in place until February as we did with Coyle.

Agreed, I'm in no way comparing him to Coyle mind, just that in this league you can employ an absolute duffer and pick up very few points through winter and still come within a whisker of staying in the league, which is a pretty sad indictment of the quality in many ways, or at least the quality that season!
