A tough season for QPR

It is safe to say that Queens Park Rangers have had a miserable season in the Premier League and that Championship football is all but guaranteed next campaign.

Mark Hughes was sacked back in November after failing to win a single game all season and then Harry Redknapp was appointed almost immediately after.

Many believed that Redknapp would be the man to turn around the season and help QPR stay in the league, but that doesn’t look to be the case and for all the money that has been spent at Loftus Road, they are going to be playing in the second tier of English football come August.

It is tough to see just where it has all gone wrong for Rangers, but they might have been better off taking a leaf out of Norwich and Swansea City’s book as they have both built around their squads that came up from the Championship with QPR.

Swansea are certain to stay up this season and have a Capital One Cup title to their name, whereas Norwich also look like beating the drop, even if they haven’t been quite so convincing.

Maybe QPR should have stuck with Neil Warnock as when you look at it, he did an incredible job in getting the club to the Premier League.

It is tough to know just what to predict for the Londoners, but they are going to have to get rid of a few players as the likes of Chris Samba, Loic Remy and Ji-Sung Park are not going to be on small wages.

There is no doubt that this was a tough job for Redknapp to take on, but you have to say for all the millions he spent in the January transfer window, he hasn’t quite lived up to expectation and the football results have not been good enough.

Now, it will be interesting to see whether he continues as manager for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship.
