What makes Tapia a better option? Because he has a more interesting name??

Huh?
In that case, I'd give the job to Theodore Augustus Crackwhore Jnr.

Once again ,I don't understand all the disrespect for Jim Magilton.He was a cultured footballer,who played the game on the ground where all our "beautiful game " officianados want to see QPR play the ball.I have absoloutely nothing against Tapia and if he is our new manager I will support him 100% but just because he is "foreign" and "exotic" does not mean he will be any better than Magilton.At the end of the day Dowie was a more succesful manager pro rata than Sousa but some on here still think he(Sousa) was the better manager for no other reason than he had better hair and looked a bit like Mourhino .

I guess I meant a foreign name with a bit more flair seems to be adding weight to a manager's CV so far as many fans are concerned. I just don't see how Tapia is a better option than Magilton IMHO yet people seem certain he's the answer to our problems

I've kind of got used to the idea of wee Jimmy taking over. I'm visualising him winning things. I'm ready to get behind him and his team. I'm getting carried away. The R's are going up!

I can hear him talking about what a fantastic challenge it is. How he believes in the project. How he always loved coming to Loftus Rd and saying, "What about ya Sir Les?"

However, if it is Tapia (and seeing as this has gone on for so long and he uses the word "project" in interviews, it could well be) then I'll do exactly the same. Except for the visualising bit and the Jim McDonald impressions obviously.

Still think it's Spackman.

If that's what you think people based opinions of Sousa on, that's a shame. That would be as unfair as saying you are just being biased towards two fellow Norn Iron men.

Dowie was sacked too early, but as for Sousa - it might have had more to do with his pedigree and achievements in football, and the faith most people had that he would learn and eventually succeed at QPR.
A rookie manager when he arrived, they knew that. He just wasn't even given the chance to learn. 20 odd games. It was pathetic.

Nothing to do with his bloody haircut, or what country he came from.

Magilton would be a terrible appointment. Deja vu from last season with an underachieving Championship also-ran being appointed before the inevitable parting of the ways come November. I really can't believe the board are that stupid.

Never realised the corrupt former owner of Marseille was in the frame for the QPR job...

Would probably fit in well though.
