When Queens Park Rangers decided to part company with former manager Steve McClaren, it didn’t really come as surprise to fans given how our form had fallen off a cliff and the main question was, did we have a replacement lined up or not.

With caretaker gaffer John Eustace remaining in position to see us over the line in the Championship campaign of 2018/19, the obvious answer is we had no one lined up.

The media have linked plenty of names to the vacant role as attentions begin turning to the campaign of 2019/20 and director of football Les Ferdinand has even confirmed some of the names that we’ve been speaking to.

QPR Make Progress In Manager Search But Fans Are Left Wondering

No appointment has been made, but the press have named plenty of firm favourites for the role and following on from Tim Sherwood, Gareth Ainsworth was said to be our latest.

London Football News have stated this week though that no approach has been made for the Wycombe Wanderers man and he hasn’t even been spoken to.

Instead, we now appear to be back to Marc Bircham in possibly a double act with Darren Moore as assistant to address the relative managerial experience aspect of our former player.

With only one game left, we should surely have an answer soon enough.

  • Darren Moore really going to go from manager of a play off team to assistant of relegation battlers? Can’t see it tbh. I don’t want him anyway, didn’t do very well at West Brom with the quality of players they have in that squad.

    Warburton would be the sensible choice or just get Olly back.

  • ‘Tis The Curse at work I tell ‘ee.All candidates will be reduced almost immediately to a gibbering approximation of a squashed traffic cone.(I’ve seen some and they’re not a pretty sight at the best of times).

  • Warburton or Ollie would be great, Cant see Ollie coming back though – too embarrassing for the poor dears. Warburton in my view is a no brainer, so I cannot for the life of me see why it wasnt all sorted out within days of McC going (like any other logical club would have done). Whoever it ends up with, I give it a season at most, the poor dears seem to be trigger happy these days. ie NW,MH.HR,JFH,IH,SMcC (have I forgotten anyone here, theres been so many).
