VQPR Blog - Rangers Hit Rock-Bottom


As an eternal optimist my task over recent months has become increasingly difficult to see the positives in what has now been highlighted to be a sad state of affairs.

While financially stable Queens Park Rangers have proven themselves to be a club rotting from the very foundations, and it's difficult to see what needs to be changed to bring about success.

Paul Hart's short-term appointment, while underwhelming, came about through the players' vote of no confidence in previous manager Jim Magilton and after five games it appears the same has happened again.

The former Portsmouth boss was certainly not to everyone's taste with some supporters giving confused reactions of joy that the manager has gone, but lambasting Mr Briatore for yet another departee.

All the while there are a group of players at the club who continue to perform well below their previously shown capabilities and if you believe reports have ousted their second manager in the space of months.

The line some media outlets continue to go with is 'Mutual Consent' - the all encompassing smokescreen that could mean one of thousands of instances, and of course means that the R's hierarchy have only officially sacked two managers - John Gregory and Iain Dowie.

Truth be told, the overriding emotion is disappointment - shock is something that has long since departed my vocabulary in terms of QPR.

Disappointment at the amount of managers continually passing through the door; disappointment at what are over-paid, underperforming players that seem to balk at the sight of heavy-handed management; and most of all with the supporters.

What I have witnessed this season is usually reserved for people sat behind their computers sniping at the side without repercussions, but recently they have been out in force calling for Hart's head into his second game - surely they can have no complaint.

Once again at the sight of something promising the whole club implodes on itself, first with Magilton, and now - still within touching distance of the playoffs - Rangers cast off another boss at the behest of all three sticking points, the owners, the players and shamefully above all - the fans, who are usually the last bastion of common sense within the club.

One can expect Mick Harford to take over until the end of the season - and looking at the track record of the former Luton boss it seems that the season has ground to a halt.

These are indeed sad times at Queens Park Rangers and it doesn't look to be a problem anybody can rectify in the short-term.

Well said, Boxer, and completely sums up my feelings ... when returning from LR on Tuesday night - ask Jezza. I felt deflated & saddened because of the overwhelming sense that this Club is going nowhere fast despite all the promise and possibilities on offer. And I don't see a way out of this. This is a very sad day in the history of QPR :-(

Everyone has jumped on each other - the players on the managers, the owner on the manager, us on the players and the manager. This used to be a happy, family club but recently it has become a nasty place to go, bitter atmospheres and overall booing and heckling everything that dare misplace a pass. Some would blame Flavio, but some supporters have been naive in believing PR and are growing more impatient than the owners, who in truth have given them what they wanted. I am a very sad R's fan today.

I have been a QPR fan for over 46 years. This past season has to rate as the worst in the clubs history. So much potential for promotion all thrown away. Too much money and to many outside influeces in this once great game. Over paid over hyped players that do not deliver expensive ticket prices and owners who know little or nothing about man management and above all football. Once an R's fan always an R's fan. This year a disapointed and saddend R's fan.
