If you're going to sack a manager...

by Stanley on 10-05-2017 at 12:18 AM
FAR better to do it now than 10 games or more into a new season.

Let's review Fernandes record of QPR managers so far:

Hughes
Redknapp
Ramsey
JFH
Holloway

ALL of them brought in midway through seasons. Throughout his tenure it has always been this firefighting and reactive (to fan pressure) approach. Never an approach with any clear foresight, vision and informed planning. Just lurching and stumbling blind from one mess

The other reason is that (until the sending off when we were forced into change) we started out in a 4-2-2-2 formation with Hall in the first row of two, which is a system we haven't played before and which maybe IH felt suited Hall in that

hoilett haranguing

Classic example of where Loftus Road's acoustics can be a curse as well as a blessing (for confidence players such as Hoilett). Not the first and it won't be the last. Kevin is right, the players hear absolutely everything. A player's individual wealth never comes into the equation - totally separate issue.

That's not quite correct Cali. I did an interview with Fedinand and Ramsey for WATRB along with the other fan sites at the start of the season.

Basically the way it works is CR controls formations and tactics. Pre-transfer window he then targeted which positions we were deficient in and relays that to LF. Les then targets and buys the players, however Ramsey also has a say in the player targets. The
