Steve Mcclaren

If it is him let’s get behind him and support him. We played some of the best football seen for years when he was in as coach a few years ago. I wish Holloway well but he was taking us absolutely nowhere with hoof and hope football.

My initial reaction would be ... he could be the right man to help our young squad develop and move forward.
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Remember:
Growing old is inevitable.
Growing up is optional.

Let’s hope Zen, let’s hope. Full support from me but bear in mind his recent record looks like a typical Mid Championship managers record

I can't see McClaren coming if we are going to sell any of our top players and without a decent transfer pot.

I can, his level of job offer has fallen off a cliff, he is such a poor no1. He now will have to grasp at anything that comes his way, and he has!
All or nothing!

Wouldn't be my first choice by a long way. Good luck to him none the less. Maybe he can have a Twente season.

Is this rumoured, i can't say i've followed Carsley's managerial career, promising?

Big mistake appointing McClaren. Other fans must be quietly laughing about this appointment.

He just doesn't understand the club.Another one on a final chance.Ollie deserves better.

Another Warnock moment

Out of interest, what do you think the nuances of QPR are that Holloway can fathom that McLaren can't?

Absolutely nothing!

Holloway did OK nothing more. I don’t buy into this he was QPR through and through.

I believe he had an affection for the club for sure, i enjoyed the majority of his first tenure and he played for us during a good spell in our more recent history (or recentish). But i also agree that to an extent he used this to curry favour with fans and this shouldn't be a deciding factor on whether he were to remain at the helm. I really don't need the manager to tickle my balls.
