Fans Eye View - Daxvondrac
Vital QPR continues to ask the fans the questions. Next in line is Daxvondrac
1. We have just been promoted to the premier league. Are you excited about the coming season?
Very excited. Though some of that excitement had been diluted by the current negativity of the fanbase and the lack of any real good vibes coming from the club. The recent statement has raised the levl up again.
2. Prices have gone up by a lot and hit a lot of people hard. Do you still fell it is worth it?
Well, if I had not known the previous price, I would have said that £750 to watch a season of Premiership football (+£250 for my son) represents decent value when compared, for example, to Rugby World Cup tickets at $500 a shot. It's only in the context of the % rise year on year that it starts to look less impressive.
3. We have adopted a transfer policy with a very strict wage structure and will not be spending a lot on transfers. What do you think about QPR employing this transfer policy?
I would much rather us tread carefully and maybe even have to bounce a couple of times before establishing ourselves, than to do a Pompey or Hull and bankrupt the club. I believe the owners have just shown they have a solid plan for our future.
4. Being promoted as Champions, we have a strong squad, do you feel it needs to be strengthened?
We were the best side in the Championship and with the best defence last season. We should have enough in the squad, with 3 or 4 quality additions to not need to spend silly money on players or wages.
5. We have finally had our first 2 signings in Bothroyd and Dyer. How do you feel about these signings?
i>Answered before the Gabbidon signing
I absolutely love the Bothroyd signing.
Both are quality players. There are risks there, but in Neil Warnock we have the best manager to lessen those risks and maximise the potential.
6. We have been linked to a lot of players over the summer. Is there anyone in particular you would like to see in the Blue and White hoops?
Kyle Walker for me. Pure class and can play 4 or 5 positions. I think it is also a shame that we could not pursuade Routledge to sign, but if he was not gonna be committed then he is better off elsewhere!
7. There is a lot of uncertainty about Adel Tarabt staying at W12. Do you think he will stay?
I still think Adel will go in January if he performs well in the Premiership. I hope Warnock gets the bulk of his fee to spend if it hapopens. I think as a team we have enough cover. The likes of Buzsaky, Smith & Mackie playing off Bothroyd gives us more of a team feel than all hoping for a piece of Adel magic.
8. There has been a lot of speculation regarding the boardroom. What are your opinions of the current board?
I think the Mittal thing has been a red herring. He obviously does not want us as much as the fans want him, if he did, he could buy us with the change in his suit pockets. We have what we have. I would prefer real football men at the helm, but there are many clubs worse off than we are.
9. Neil Warnock got us our first trophy in years. Do you think he will last all season?
As long as Flavio understands that 17th position is a good result, then he will. It would be the worst thing that could happen to get rid of him. And obviously Neil needs to learn to be a little less vocal in the press sometimes.
10. How do you think we will fare for our first season back?
Too many unknows to judge, but all we need is for 3 teams to be worse than us, and I struggle to see Norwich, Swansea, Blackburn or Wigan finishing above us. 3 from those 4 beneath us would do me fine right now.
