QPR fans are probably feeling pretty chipper at the moment. Five games played, 7 points banked, 9th in the table, new owner, Barton scoring, Wright-Phillips...What could possibly go wrong?
Well check out recent history guys. Blackpool were doing rather well at this stage of last season and, perhaps more pertinently, Sheffield United were as good as safe with six games to play in The Great Escape season, but Warnock contrived to get them relegated.
It is a long, long season and there is plenty of time for things to go horribly wrong. The Rs were lucky to catch Everton early in the season when they traditionally underperform and Wolves were very, very poor today. My money is still on all three new boys to struggle despite their victories today. But that said, outside of the Manchester clubs, it is a very, very ordinary Premiership this season.
