Warnock/Hughes/Redknapp signings

Post by Rbee » Wed May 17, 2017 4:31 pm

This is no doubt a Spackman from the 29th April 2013, published in The Daily Mail, but interesting to look back on now.


NEIL WARNOCK SIGNINGS (With Tony Fernandes)


Joey Barton (Free - £70,000-per-week) - The first of Tony Fernandes’ high-profile signings. The first of a number of mistakes in the transfer market. 2/10

Luke Young (Undisclosed - £45,000-per-week) - Added experience to QPR’s defence last season, but struggled with a painful hip injury this term and hasn’t played. 4/10

Armand Traore (£1.2m - £40,000-per-week) - Shown glimpses of why he was so highly-rated by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but too inconsistent. 5/10

Shaun Wright-Phillips (£2m - £60,000-per-week) - One of the biggest disappointments of all of Fernandes’ signings. Not lived up to his reputation. 3/10

Anton Ferdinand (£2.5m - £45,000-per-week) - Some decent displays early in his QPR career but will be remembered for his race row with John Terry. 5/10

Jason Puncheon (loan) - A summer transfer deadline day signing. Made just two substitute appearances before returning to Southampton. 1/10

average = 3.3/10


MARK HUGHES SIGNINGS


Nedum Onuoha - (£3m - £55,000-per-week) - One of Mark Hughes's first signings but struggled to find the form that put him on the brink of an England call. 4/10

Djibril Cisse - (£4m - £60,000-per-week) - Scored six in eight upon joining in January 2012, but also picked up two red cards in his first five games for the club. Partial success. 6/10

Bobby Zamora - (£6m - £70,000-per-week) - Played a vital role in keeping QPR up last season but struggled with a hip injury this season. 6/10

Samba Diakite - (£3.5m - £45,000-per-week) - Was key in last season’s survival push but hardly featured this season. 2/10

Federico Macheda (loan) - Arrived from Manchester United with a promising reputation but did not make a single league start for QPR. 2/10

Taye Taiwo (loan) - Recognised as one of the best left backs in European football but failed to live up to his billing before returning to AC MIlan. 4/10

Andy Johnson - (Free - £40,000-per-week) - Made just two starts since arriving from Fulham due to a season-ending knee injury. 1/10

Ryan Nelsen - (Free - £35,000-per-week) - Arguably the club’s player of the season despite only playing half of the campaign before moving to take charge of Toronto FC. 7/10

Stephane Mbia - (£5m - 50,000-per-week) - Added strength to QPR’s midfield and back four but not been consistent enough this season. 4/10

Robert Green - (Free - £50,000-per-week) - Under pressure from the outset after conceding five on his debut and being relegated to No 2 following the signing of Julio Cesar. Struggled. 3/10

Park Ji-sung - (£2m - £70,000-per-week) - Heralded as the man to take QPR to the next level. But the former Manchester United midfielder has struggled in a struggling team. 3/10

Junior Hoilett - (£4m - £50,000-per-week) - Viewed as one of the coups of the summer. But the pacy winger has flitted in and out of QPR’s team. 3/10

Esteban Granero
- (£3.5m - £65,000-per-week) - The former Real Madrid midfielder arrived with a good reputation and big things were expected but he has not delivered. 3/10

Julio Cesar - (Free - £75,000-per-week) - One of only a handful of Hughes’s captures that has rightfully earned his keep. Kept QPR in games with big saves. 7/10

Fabio (Loan) - Must be wishing he’d never left Manchester United last summer. 3/10

average = 3.9/10


HARRY REDKNAPP SIGNINGS

Loic Remy (£8m - £80,000-per-week) - If only he’d been at the club since the start of the season. Will surely move to a top club this summer. 8/10

Chris Samba (£12m - £100,000-per-week) - Broke all the club’s financial records but his presence has not been enough to save QPR. 5/10

Jermaine Jenas (Undisclosed - £40,000-per-week) - QPR look better with him in the side. But not had enough time to bed in. 5/10

Andros Townsend (Loan) - Been one of the only bright sparks for Redknapp during the closing weeks of the season. Looks a top player. 7/10

Tal Ben Haim (Undisclosed)

average = 6.25/10

Isn't there a few omissions here?

For example, didn't Redknapp sign Charlie Austin and half of his ex-players (Nico Kranjar, etc.) from his Rolodex?

Do we know how accurate those figures are?

I'd be amazed if Diakite was on 45k a week, for instance.

Taye Taiwo was a lot higher than those ratings given to him, as was Rob Green over the time he spent with us. We should have signed Taiwo when we had the chance, he was a beast.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Wow that is a depressing catalogue. Maybe that list should be put up on here the next time we are bemoaning the likes of Washington, Luongo, Mackie etc. Personally feel so much better supporting the latter even if they come up short quite often.
Come on you Sooopa ........

That's right. Our current lads may be limited but they don't seem to lack heart. The only Rangers player I have ever booed was Bosingwa as he strolled off the pitch at half time at home to Newcastle after seemingly trying to throw the game.

Quite how Samba got 5/10 is a mystery

Agreed, given what we are spending, i don't think we're doing a bad job in the transfer market.

Agree on Taiwo, disagree on Green.

The PO final and his heroics the following season should see his overall contribution as at least a 5 or 6/10 IMO.

Well, the article was pre that. But yeah, i would think that fair. Although i still think he wasn't quite as good as people make out in that PL season. The article over rates Cesar too.
