Rangers In Their Rightful Place
Queens Park Rangers have been determined as being in their overall correct position by a recent study.
The 'Achievers Report` performed by the new football pools takes into account the following factors:
The club`s 'starting position` in 1992
Stadium capacity and average attendances 1992-2008
Changes in club ownership and associated investments
Financial difficulties, including administration
Transfers in and out since 1992
League and Cup performances each season
Quite how accurate this study is however is open to debate as they describe QPR as the following:
"Having finished the first three Premier League seasons in the top ten, to now be a struggling Championship side smacks of a significant under-achievement
"The reality is that QPR of the early 1990s were undoubtedly over-achieving and the QPR of today is probably a more realistic assessment of the club`s size and capabilities.
"Financial problems have beset the clubs since the start of the millennium, and the recent merry go rounds in the boardroom and the managers office have to be taken into consideration when you assess the club`s overall performance. But despite having three billionaire backers we think the Rangers fans who now believe anything but the Premier League is under-achieving need a reality check."
