All the impressive signings and managerial changes will not, most likely, save QPR from avoiding relegation a second straight time. Harrey Redknapp might be a better manager than Mark Hughes, but the results under his tenure haven’t been much better, and the impending drop to the Championship will probably lead to a massive selling spree, after spending so much money on expensive players this season.
According to those feeding us rumors, some of the major teams in the Premier League, are already fighting for what’s going to be left once the West London side will be relegated. Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are already fighting for Adel Taarabt. AC Milan want to bring back Julio Cesar to the Serie A. Arsenal and Tottenham are looking into the option of signing Loic Remy. And that’s not all.
Bobby Zamora, Esteban Granero, Jermaine Jenas (Who has already declared he will be staying with the club if they get relegated, but never believe a footballer) and one of the worst signings in the history of the Premier League, a super expensive Christopher Samba, will all be looking to find new teams, not to mention QPR looking to part ways with players too expensive for them to keep in the Championship.
The sad story of all this? Rangers tried to jump too high, but using the wrong instruments. Managing to steer clear of relegation last season on the final day, they held on to Mark Hughes despite years of showing he isn’t exactly the kind of manager who has a long-term, lasing effect on a Premier League, while bringing in 11 new players during the summer, hoping that the complete overhaul will change something.
Instead, after getting only 4 points through their first 12 matches with Hughes, switching to Harry Redknapp, QPR kept on the purchasing of expensive players who according to rumors have relegation bonuses, otherwise they wouldn’t have come, not mention are going to leave the moment it’s allowed. Redknapp has won 20 points since taking over the job, out of a possible 60. That kind of pace is much better than Hughes’ achievement, but it would still have them fighting for their lives between Wigan and Sunderland. He demanded more signings, and got five new players in the middle of the season. Of them, it’s safe to say only Loic Remy has actually done well, with 5 goals in 8 matches.
