QPR fans forming queue to consult sage
"Norwich will now know that defeat at Loftus Road could be disastrous. All the promoted clubs would do well to remember Blackpool, as I have been warning all season - much to the chagrin of the gRs. Well the table doesn't lie and, as I warned, if you don't win your home games in the Prem, you will struggle. It is shit or bust on Monday now for Warnock's boys. And I fancy that increasing desperation will see QPR slip to a 2-1 home defeat."
Now that wasn't a bad call was it? And my prediction that QPR would struggle to avoid relegation is looking pretty spot on too, isn't it?
But how have Rangers fans reacted to my posts? Well I have been abused and told that I know nothing about the game. According to the Rangers fans, there was no way the team was going to struggle with players like Barton, Wright-Phillips, D J Campbell and Luke Young, even though all four have already been relegated with previous clubs. With Money Bags Fernandes, backed by Big Money Bags Mittal, QPR could only go in one direction apparently. Hmmm.
Hang on, let's dig up another post made back in October entitled, "QPR teetering on the edge of the Premiership abyss". The last two paragraphs read:
"The bottom of the Premiership is closing up concertina fashion and QPR are going to have to play out of their skins over the next month to avoid being in the bottom three come the start of December. With unrest in the camp courtesy of Barton's comments about Adel Taarabt, things could start to fall apart big time as the pressure mounts.
Unless, of course, Warnock's Rangers shock us all by beating Chelsea tomorrow. Wright-Phillips has something to prove, doesn't he?"
How about that for a prediction? Take off the 3 points QPR secured against 9 man Chelsea, and where would the Rs be? In the bottom three!
Now, where do QPR go from here? Tell me, who will fancy joining the Hoops after collecting just one point from the last 21? Wayne Bridge might like a run out in the Prem again. Macheda aint all that, as Rangers fans will now discover. Defoe? Not a chance! Zamora? Would you fancy joint top of the Championship or fourth from bottom of the Prem? QPR are now in the Catch 22 that we found ourselves in: rubbish attracts rubbish, and quality steers clear of a crisis club.
Still, when we went down, we had Grant in charge and he was relegated with the previous club he had managed in the Prem, whereas QPR have Warnock...who was relegated with the previous club he had managed in the Prem! But QPR have Gabbidon - also relegated - and Kenny also relegated - and Wright-Phillips, and DJ Campbell and Luke Young and Barton - when he isn't suspended - all relegated too of course!
Still, cheer up all you gRs, you're far too good to go down, as you've repeatedly told me, and Fernandes is about to open his transfer war chest. Look at the first signing - a player on loan! But that means you still have £20m to spend doesn't it? Yeah right!
Expect talk of the shiny new stadium within the next 48 hours!
