Probably not.

No real experience as a number 2 and no real evidence that he's an especially good coach either. He may well be excellent at both but it would be hard to know and not really worth bringing in him just because he's a popular ex-player.

I'd be happy for him to replace Marc Bircham.

And Ollie.

I’d be happy for him to replace Cousins.

He has an outstanding character and would only enhance the club IMO.

I still remember him being sent off at the Theatre of Nightmares due to the blatant cheating of Ashley Young - there were no remonstrations or histrionics just accepted a horrific decision with dignity - many young players could learn a lot from him.

And, most importantly we have a great song for him!

We all remember that blatant cheating and Sean Derry's dignified response. Young has form - a lot of it. But, does Sean have the experience to make an impact at Loftus Road? If we could somehow rejuvenate him and put him on the pitch, yes. But, in management/coaching? We have seen little to suggest that he does - yet.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

I love Derry as well as Ainsworth, but we've got to get over this idea that by some miracle they're going to be better for us than they are in the jobs they're actually doing/have done. Players who give their all can make up for lack of skill through it. It's not the same for management/coaching, if you're not good enough you're not good enough, and evidence would suggest that Derry isn't.

This. We’ve got to move away from the lazy ‘ex-player/right sort’ approach with its entirely predictable pisspoor result and move to a professional business-like model where we scale the globe for the best candidates for ANY role at the club. If the mighty Huddersfield can do this surely Fernandes can too....at last?

Agreed - criteria must be wider than having previously played for us. We already have a few badge kissers and coaching skills is the priority now.

Don't disagree about Derry but surely Ainsworth will be worth a look if he's still at Wycombe next time we're in the market for a manager? He's done a phenomenal job on what I understand to be a very small budget, even for League 2. To have them up in one of the automatic promotion spots is tremendous.

Gareth Ainsworth was named the League Two Manager of the Month for January. That said, I agree with those saying a coaching or managerial appointment has to be made on professional competencies rather than any perceived allegiance to QPR.

I'm not knocking what Ainsworth is doing at Wycombe, but it's league two. JFH tore up League 1 and look where he got us.

Errm, I believe the correct definition of that place to be the Theatre of Hallucinations :-?

In fairness, JFH took over a team built by Gary Rowett whereas Gareth has spent five years building something at Wycombe.

What's he actually built though ?

5 and a half years in charge and one play-off final to show for it. I appreciate that Wycombe haven't got a pot to piss in, so I think he's doing a decent job, but it's hardly earth-shattering stuff, is it ?
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?
