    Can you imagine CH making first half tactical subs and going for it, not scoring once but twice?

    Last three games they've scored 3, 3 and 2.

    How I miss goals.
    Not good enough for us though, we go to games to see clean sheets or some other bullshit apparently.

    He had a team that finished GD above relegation and was given a whole 6m to turn us into champions and by December we hadn't won the league, nothing short of disgraceful

    And that's 6m from the 15m sale of his top goalscorer too. I don't know many managers who would improve their league position when losing a 14 goal forward the year before for 15m, and only having a 2m one replace him

    The way our top brass actively handicap managers, then expect them to get us promoted is ridiculous.

    About to win again.

    2nd in the league.

    Still shit though.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Manager who loses too many games.....takes shit relegation bound side to 2nd and remains unbeaten, whilst balancing the books

    Even if the tail off later this season, it's clear to see his way was the right way, and those who sacked him knew far less about both football and football finances than Warbs did.

    It's like watching Sliding Doors and our bright future is in West London mocking us as we descend deeper into the shit with each passing week

    Didn't realize, but he signed a new contract at QPR around a month ago...

    https://www.qpr.co.uk/news/club-news...r-deal-050821/

    Looks like sticking with him through the bad runs they had is paying off so far, on and off the pitch.

    Is Warburton your new Billy Davies then?

    Any manager who we should have kept and backed will always be the new Billy.

    Suits him there though. Though they have been in the PL they don't have the backing as much of owners and recently know the issues of spaffing cash up the wall on shit players and getting relegated then having all the mess to deal with.

    The expectation from the fan base is less and presumably from the owners too, when he was here the season after we had stayed up on GD the expectation was still the play offs and that noose has been hung around many managers' necks since then, when in reality we are way off that target.

    His approach does take time and we weren't willing to give it. It's a massive development taking on younger players and cheap experienced ones and trying to make a team out of them, he managed it at Brentca but what people don't realise there is he worked for the club already when Rosler was manager and stepped into that knowing the players and the setup as well as anyone else would. And let's be fair getting Rangers up wasn't exactly going to be difficult. Here we had nothing for him to build on because fazza had shafted it and no decent defenders but in his summer transfer window he did little to address that either. After a year literally the signs still weren't there.

    I was watching a documentary behind the scenes with QPR when they got Colin and ended up promoted, the guys are good owners and supportive of the managers generally and it shows. I think generally speaking we are not the most patient of fans or a club as a whole and our expectations of where the club actually is don't really fit with where we would like it to be or think it is. Whether we stick with CH and allow him to build it with DM or allow DM to bring in his own model and managers we have to let it be put in place and accept it won't yield instant results but trust the process. Which is what QPR are doing.

    It helps that Mark has been allowed to sign players like Austin and Dykes and they backed him up with a very promising defender in Rob Dickie who made the step up well, I think we were interested and ended up with McKenna who's probably about par with Dickie really.

    Anyone else see the irony in Warburton signing a defender we were interested in and now being top of the table whilst we're bottom?

    Well their defence is better than it was but still a bit cack.

    Ours wasn't too bad last season especially once Figs and Christie had stopped giving goals to the opposition (in the former case, because he wasn't in the team). We would probably be similar with Worrall/Dickie as opposed to Worrall/McKenna anyway and we still have Ely (no idea how good he is though) and Mbe Soh in the squad so i'm not sure he would make much difference to us.

    But he is obviously helped by the fact he has Austin and Dykes as well as that midget Chair in attack whereas we have Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor. He's an attack-minded manager anyway and that attack will always get you goals.

    Put him in this squad and we'd be getting tonked 3-4 every week because he won't protect the defence and the attack is just useless.

    He had a side with a decent attack here that included the likes of Fanny McKay, Cumdog Millionaire and a coked-up Daryl Murphy. If he could get a tune out of those, then a proven Championship forward like Grabban along with promising youngsters Johnson, Mighten and Carvalho would be more than enough. If his side at the time had even a half-decent keeper like de Vries, Darlow or Samba in the net then it would have looked significantly stronger at the back, in my opinion.

    We don't know how good this squad is if it's given licence to go out and attack though.

    What this team needs is a licence... a licence to thrill.
