Tuesday evening’s defeat to Bristol City left Queens Park Rangers fans with little to celebrate but plenty to criticise.
A four-game losing streak in the Championship campaign of 2018/19 has been new manager Steve McClaren’s reward for taking the job on and it’s not like it wasn’t a difficult summer anyway with Financial Fair Play issues and player sales.
Going down 3-0 on the evening to compound our worst ever start to a year saw new signing and debutant Angel Rangel take to social media following the match and for many his tweet was actually the highlight of the game.
Not a good start to the season but still a long way to go! Togetherness, Belief and learning quickly from the mistakes will be key to change things around. Not the debut I wanted personally and collectively but we will keep fighting! ???????? @QPR #belief #togetherness #qpr pic.twitter.com/vGi45yYzj3

Open, honest and part rallying cry from a man who has barely filled up his locker in the dressing room and it certainly went over well with the fans.

Well done Angel, the only player to speak out and show some leadership. Maybe we should make you our captain from now on

As a swans fan who has had the pleasure of watching him for the past 10 seasons and seen what he is like on and off the pitch you couldn't be further from the truth. He is player who will give everything to QPR on and off the pitch. His tweet is 100% from him and what he feels.

You played well – we were much worse once you came off. Appreciated your effort & commitment on the night but feel let down by others. Hope you can help turn this team around – & fast!!!!

Good performance by you yesterday but a shame I can’t say that about many others in the club

Having witnessed too many players at the end of their career coming to #QPR and ranging from massively under performing to taking the piss, I appreciate one showing the leadership and honesty he was brought in for. Thank you Angel.

Whilst some fans were more vociferous shall we say in their criticism following the game, there was a trend of ‘leadership’ and how he fronted up after the match and many wonder if he should actually take the armband from here on out.
Not a bad shout really given his experience.
