With QPR looking like they’re going to lose star man Adel Taarabt and not re-invest in the team we have to start looking at their chances of staying in the Premier League. Losing Taarabt is bad, but not replacing him, or boosting the squad is going to be the writing on the wall. Rangers have brought in Jay Bothroyd & Kieron Dyer, both on free transfers. They are linked to Danny Gabbidon & Brian Murphy both will be frees. They gave new contracts to Cerny & Helguson and look like the deal for DJ Campbell will fall through. So it’s a grand total of £0 spent this transfer window. QPR could be the first team ever to get promoted to the Premier League and not spend any cash in the summer.
There’s clearly something wrong at Loftus Road. Do the board really back the manager? Warnock's job was in doubt as soon as they got promoted with various managers linked to his job. He hasn’t been given money to spend and it doesn’t look like he will. Players have also turned down a move to the club with his position not 100% being the reason not to come. Do the board really care about the club? Do they have the clubs best interests in heart? Well going by the ticket rise and no player or sponsorship deal I don’t think so. The best thing for QPR is to have this board go ASAP to give them any chance of staying in the Premier League. But I fear Rangers could start this season poorly, and this board will get rid of Warnock early and struggle to get to Christmas without being too far adrift from the pack. Whatever happens QPR do it in style and it will be a memorable season in W12.
