Obviously we've had bad managers over the years. But many at the time seemed at least ok, if not spectacular. (And hindsight is easy). Ray Harford for instance looked like a reasonable appointment - especially given our resources.
But now, given what we should be able to get, if some of these names, actually turn out, well "not inspired" is a charitable response
Maybe "we" should just apologise wholeheartedly, bring the old manager back & give him full control & let him bring in his own players, let him live & die by his own decisions, not other peoples decisions, then we can judge him ??! I dont know about anyone else, but my heart really isnt in to this wondering who the new QPR boss is going to be lark, a malodorous feeling hangs over our club & unless things change, will do for some time to come IMO.
Ah yes but according to Orville in April "I know from a very good sauce, that its not actually decided yet whether Paulo stays or not, but the next appointment will be a very top name, if they decide to move on. They don't want to keep changing managers and will spend on a big name to take charge."
There was a time a very few years back when it was very, very hard to find a good manager for QPR because of our financial plight; Administration and Relegation. We thankfully ended up with Holloway. Then when he was axed, again our options were limited.
But it's a new era. It shouldnt be what we're going through now. Briatore has gotten us into this. It's up to Briatore to get us out of it. And he can. Will he?
Gianni Paladini to QPR Report: "I would like to thank you for all your time and efforts that you put into QPR. I think you are doing something useful and informative for the club and the supporters."
