Slowly slipping down the table. They're crap even when they don't play.

Just heard a rumour, from my Owls mate at work that they've "agreed" a sale of Jordan Rhodes to the Ra-Ra's!
That would be hugely amusing but I can't believe it can be true.

My mate was over the moon at the prospect of getting his wages off the books, but he did say "apparently", so we'll have to wait and see but, yes, it would be hilarious.
He made a late cameo in the Wednesday's game against Derby on Friday night and was awful. He's so slow these days and easily knocked off the ball too. I cannot see him being the answer to their problems. If Jordan is as creative as QPR can be these days then they're well and truly stuffed!

Well, it's the same person, but the one I remember playing for us was an athletic goalscorer, whereas the current one is better suited to being either a battering ram or a means of leveling a pitch.
Yep, my tongue in cheek comment being that he played for us a long time ago!!

We all get old. Rhodes seems like a decent bloke, has had a good career and the slight misfortune of playing two up top, to which he’s well suited, go out of fashion.

Cant see that with the wages he'll be on

Focus on staying in the league, then.

He is good, but there's no denying he's on the way down. This will probably be his last 'productive' move in his career...

Think he managed about 10 goals in WBAs promotion season? Guessing they want a bit of experience to aid their young side. Not convinced he's any better than their Scottish striker, must be on a huge wedge too? Desperate push to avoid relegation?

Horrible player, never good enough in the top tier and barely cuts it in the championship.

Although perhaps at a pointless club like QPR he'll shine. Laughable their fans assume he might be a turning point for them and a top 6 charge is on...

Quite a few on their forum think it’s a bad signing due to fitness and money and that they would have preferred glen Murray who they were chasing personally wouldn’t have either both past it ....but hey ho that’s there problem...non league is too good for that lot from white city

Their bell endness is no surprise. When they financially cheated their way to the prem, round our way they were singing about being the richest club in Europe, being richer than chelsea, and going on about making the champions leagues....... true story

With their defeat yesterday, QPR added another to their list of FA Cup 3rd round exits. Since the cup assumed its present form in 1925/26 (top two divisions enter at Rd.3), they've now gone out 49 times at this stage - more than any other side.

This includes 13 of the last 17 seasons (i.e. since their most recent spell in the third tier).

Austin is 31 now and his fitness isn't the best.
When you have a Club in freefall, it takes more than a "fans favourite"
to stop the drop.

Actually I was wrong about that.

Apparently it's 50.

It's not just Eze, though, is it?

"QPR could also be in hot water with clubs only allowed a restricted number of directors and scouts to be inside stadiums along with those deemed essential to the game.
Alan Pardew, technical director of CSKA Sofia, was also at the third-round tie which Fulham won 2-0 after extra-time."


Though if he's to replace Warburton (ha ha), I guess he'd have wanted to be there rather than watching on FA Player like everyone else.

And I believe Charlie Austin was also at LR - was that really necessary to his signing up for them?

What a raving bell end that bloke is.
Even more astonishing is that he was willing to pronounce that this was the third time the breach of regulations has been made. But only now have they fessed up and apologised. Presumably because on this occasion they were caught.

Furthermore
I believe he was at a game in October, at a game back in August. He’s very close to several members of the squad and staff such is his character but on this occasion I had no idea.
Warbs criticising his superiors for not informing him this time of Eze's attendance?

Taxi! :wave:

I think they’ve been paying the price for somehow once reaching the final...

Unsurprisingly Austin scored on his debut.. Lets hope that's not a sign of things to come! My QPR supporting mate reckons they're in for Alex Pritchard.. Imagine they'd have to sell half the team to pay his wages if so!

Little and Large, would be the slowest pair in the Championship!

In the shed.
"QPR can confirm Bright Osayi-Samuel has informed the club he has signed a pre-contract agreement with Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce." Staying to the end of season unless agreement reached for early release.
