The Times – the bastion of stiff-upper lip journalism – has boldly predicted that QPR will finish a mere 18th (two places above Newcastle, it should be pointed out).
They base their prediction on the following crystal-ball gazing:
“The QPR revolution hasn`t really worked yet, has it? Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore came in as if they were going to blow Chelsea out the water; instead they have been upstaged by Fulham.
“Word has it that Jim Magilton, hardly an unequivocal success in three years in charge of Ipswich Town, is likely to have to dance to his employers` tune. His first three signings this summer have been Alejandro Faurlin, an Argentinian midfield player costing a distinctly un-Championship £3.5 million, Abel Taarabt, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, and Alessandro Pellicori, an Italian journeyman forward.
Proof that rich owners does not necessarily mean rich pickings.”
Well, well, well, lads & lasses – it will be our great pleasure when our team – and our manager – prove The Times 100% wrong. Come on U Rs!!
