      We have no money so certainly canít afford a new manager coming in and saying I need change entire squad so I have my own players!!! Weíre not in that ball game anymore so you need that one consistent person pulling it all together

      Problem comes when the DOF is not bringing players in like this window, now is that DOFs fault due to financial restrictions or is it scouting issue???

      Said on other thread Penrice seems to be getting away Scot free from any criticism
      Two things there westy we changed our manager and the hasn't had the chance to say I want to bring my own players so why would the next one ?
      is Penrice still here ? If he is he as all scouts they don't sign players only recommend them how do we know he hasn't after all we've been linked with a lot of players that the board hasn't after on for one reason or another

        But in theory Dogs DOF means manager donít need to bring his own players in he works with what heís given

        on scouts and Penrice what are they recommending??? Sainsbury a WC player who has options of top leagues why the hell would they even suggest him as a possibility was never going to happen

          Without doubt buddy it could have been Pen or it could very well have been Luongo that suggested him after chatting at world cup camp which was always going to be a non starter as you say but I think it's a bit harsh to blame Penrice for what appears to the boards hesitancy to strike a deal on the few others we were asociatedwith just my feeling or or maybe your right Penrice came up blank which I find hard to believe seeing the signings we made over the last 18 months

            Amazing accusations coming in right, left, and center.
            As WLS put it: "It is worth bearing in mind that Penrice is technically freelance and not formally a QPR staff member, although he is the clubís chief scout in all but name."

              So our chief scout is freelance and is not solely contracted to our club. What brains decided that, that was a good idea. Due to our poor financial situation, it is important to cut unnecessary expenditure. Think it's safe to say that the freelancer and his army of scouts who have manage 1 free transfer in two transfer windows is an unnecessary expense on the clubs finances. Then, we have dof grin, what purpose does this smiling joker serve. Gets the best part of a quarter of a million pounds per year to hire and fire his mates. Again another expense that this club does not need. Then we have Andy Sinton. A lovely fella but seriously, apart from shaking hands with the fans and posing for photos, is his wage warrented. Start cutting the off the pitch groupie gang before you start cutting the team and not replacing them.

                So if heís freelance how does he decide what players he pushes in or direction and what he pushes in other clubs. Donít feel comfortable with this

                    When he was appointed the club made it clear he was freelance.

                      What's wrong with freelance means he's not on a weekly wage gets paid on results surely the clubs quids in rather having him on the books , am I right or wrong ?
                      who scouted the youngsters we signed this summer ?

                        Probably right doggs. He probably does get a wage just not as much if solely employed by the club.

                          Which means that clubs who pay him more commission will get first dibs. While we will be offered what ever our kidney beans pays for. Would much rather a scout who was full time employed by the club. Fair play to Penrice though, he must be on a nice little earner working for all those clubs.

                            Thatís my view Hits he who pays most eats at the top table

                            How does it work if he works for say us and Brentford weíre both after a CB and same player identified fits both clubs criteria. Surely a conflict of interest

                                If two clubs are in for the same player and one offers 15% commission and the other club offers 22.5% who will look after? As a freelance his loyalty is to himself.
