Well, these certainly are quirky little statistics.
Whether or not it means anything significant or substantial, we’ll just have to wait and see, but it’s nice to have a little laugh every now and again to try and make us forget our poor run of form. Quite what sparked him into doing the research into this I’m not 100% sure, but I’m sure glad he did because it makes for some fascinating reading.
QPR fan @J_J_Burke looked at where QPR have been after 32 games in each of the past few seasons, just to see where the current team compares against them, and the results were a little bit shocking to say the least.
It turns out that QPR have performed pretty much the same in the past three seasons, with 32 games yielding 39 points and a -9 goal difference in 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20, which is a level of consistency that has to be admired, even if it’s not towards the top of the table.
Although I’m not sure if admiration was on the minds of all the QPR fans that saw these stats.
This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.

Same position but lower budget each year so each manager has done better than the previous.

To be fair we have been looking for constancy

This is it. Looked at the numbers a couple of weeks back – since Aug 16 we’d lost something like 80 out of 165 league games. Basically, we lose every other game. Always the same.

How many points will QPR get this month?
Are you impressed with stats like these?
