If we go down, we’ll go out of business. The club has been completely mismanaged. Started with the terrible overspending on over the hill crocks, and it’s ended with the sacking of Warburton. He was a safe bet,
working WONDERS with the financial restrictions placed upon him by this inept board.
I’m sorry to say it, so so sorry to say it, but I think we are doomed, because of the debt these CRETINS have put us in, and when we go down, that’s it. I fear we will have to go down the Wilmbledon route.
My heart is truly broken, and I am absolutely livid.
These absolute morons have played Russian roulette with my club and lost. And we will have to pick it all up.
And there you have it. Being a safe bet is just not good enough for many QPR fans. My view is that MW was a decent Championship manger, but not one likely to get you promoted. I fully understand why we let him go, and after the collapse last spring and our fall down the table many were calling for him to be replaced as well. On the face of it Mick Beale was a good shout. None of us could have known he would crap on the club, particularly when he gave that speech about loyalty. I don't think we can underestimate the damage MB did to our club this season, he royally screwed us over.
He brought a number of players to the club, many according to him, he had been tracking for a while or who he knew from elsewhere. They have been a huge disappointment. It's easy to blame LF for these failures, but the manager was recommending them, and when we were top of the table in October, it seemed sound judgement all round. No calls to sack the board or DoF then.
Five loans -
Laird (has missed 9 games through injury this season and hasn't played since we lost to Sunderland) doesn't look like he wants to be here.
Roberts (missed 16 games through injury before returning to Leeds)
Richards (missed 18 games through injury - only started 1 game ((and was subbed)) and been a sub 12 times) apparently we are buying him in the summer
Iroegbunam the one bright-ish spot had some decent games but often fades in the second half. He has so far avoided being injured.
Lowe - brought in by Critchley (looked great the first couple of games, but now looks lost)
Paal a good start, but has missed 6 games through injury including the last 4
Balogun looked a decent player (has missed 20 games through injury - not played since November)
Clarke-Salter has missed 24 games through injury - hasn't played since the start of last month.
Willock (one of our best players) Has missed 15 games, not played since we lost to Millwall.
Chair (the other jewel in our crown) has missed the last 4 games with injury.
So, it's easy to understand why this season has turned into a total pile of poo. Of course it is the QPR way to apportion blame, and lots are doing that, with the board the obvious target. For me, the man to be angry with is Michael Beale.
Bottom line, it's just one season, and as long as we avoid relegation we can go again from scratch in August. The loans can return to their parent clubs (would we want any of them to stay? NO!!!) We can let our injured players recover, and formulate a new strategy.
Something happened last night that was very telling. Burnley who are absolutely running away with this division got well and truly spanked by Man City. The gap between the Premiership and the Championship is huge, and ultimately that is about money.
Right now, we don't have a lot, and that is the crux of our problem.
The starting point my post was about promotion, the only way we will significantly put any money in the coffers.
