Queens Park Rangers have had some talented players over the years but few compared to Adel Taarabt, who was a fans favourite in west London.
The Moroccan playmaker was a key part of the R’s squad that won the Championship title in 2011, contributing with a remarkable 19 goals and 21 assists for Neil Warnock’s side. Therefore, his ability at this level is clear to see and a question was put to QPR fans as to whether the current side would be in the play-offs if they had Taarabt.

Mark Warburton’s side are currently six points away from the top six, so they are just about in the mix for promotion if the season does resume in the coming weeks. But, would Taarabt have made a difference? It’s fair to say the majority of the support feel he would have, although some pointed out how scoring goals hasn’t been a problem, with the R’s the third top scorers in the league.
Is Adel Taarabt the best player you have seen for QPR?

Our problem has been defence so I’m not sure… his sheer individual brilliance may cover that up however.
