QPR fell to a second consecutive league defeat after a 2-0 loss against Preston North End. Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink blamed tiredness of the squad as a reason for the defeat.
The team were involved in a rollercoaster ride with Barnsley only a few days ago. The 3-2 game ended in a loss for QPR and this brought their winning run at the start of the season to an end. After starting out the new campaign with a view of promotion to the Premier League, QPR will have to rebuild the lost confidence from the start.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink reckons he can’t be using the formation he had used the previous season if he has to make a change in the forward position and pick Conor Washington instead of Polter.
Polter was the starting forward for QPR in the winters and Washington was just the back up for him. But, after shining in Euro, the latter has his nose ahead for the position and he might now be able to pip his German colleague who has not become a senior international player anymore.
According to Hasselbaink, while both Washington and Polter are attackers, they are not similar. So, if one has to replace the other, the formation has to change to make sure the team is comfortable operating as a whole.
QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin announces his plans of leaving the Championship side as the season ends.
The player wrote on a popular social media app, Instagram. He announced via a post that his long spell with the Championship side is at an end.
The 29-year-old Argentinian midfielder arrived at the club in 2009 and has enjoyed lots of firm support from Loftus Road fans and is easily one of the favourites. Faurlin was an integral member of the 2011 Championship-winning side, but has suffered terrible luck since, suffering three anterior cruciate ligament injuries. However, he was fit again this season and has made 30 appearances in the QPR midfield, but his contract has now expired and it seems he is not going to be offered a new deal.
“After seven seasons, a long journey with some tough, difficult spells, but with some of the best and more precious moments in my career, I write to say goodbye.
Queens Park Rangers was competing in the Premier League during the 2014-15 season but after a disastrous campaign, they were relegated and are now fighting in the 2nd tier English League Championship.
QPR is attempting to make a return to the Premier League but at this point in time it’s just not going to happen.
The 2015-16 season is reaching it’s last few weeks and QPR are positioned in the middle section of the English League Championship standings and they are too far away from having any chance of snatching a play-off spot that can allow them to return to the Premier League.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is the head coach of QPR and he has recently talked about what he is planning to do in relation to transfers for the upcoming summer transfer window.
The high profile summer signing of Arsenal, PetrCech is confident that his new club are able to take away the league title from the current champions Chelsea and win the Premier League of this recently started season.
The Czech shot-stopper has faith that his new team can make it happen as he told the media: "We didn't have the start we would like but I still believe we have a bunch of players who are hungry to win trophies.After the first three games we have four points but I think there are many positives which we can look forward to in the next games."
Arsenal has collected 7 points from the possible 12 out of the 4 opening matches of the season, this isn’t a disaster start of a season but it could be improved.
The Rangers boss Chris Ramsey has said he wants Matt Phillips to stay and help the team earn League promotion next season, but, at the same time, he has admitted that QPR is one of those clubs whose financial situation is not good at the moment and thus, in case someone comes with a full wallet and tries to take the player away, he would not be able to do anything.
Phillips was in brilliant form in the latter stages of the 2014-15 League campaign of the Rangers.
The Rangers still couldn’t avoid the relegation though, but, that does not take the credit away from Phillips for the way he played.
The 24-year old was quite consistent and tried his bit to help his team stay in the top tier.
According to Ramsey, there would be enquiries or even bids for Phillips in the transfer window, but, at this point of time, the idea is not to get him sold. However, at times, it gets out of the hands of a club, especially if it is financially weak, to hold onto a certain player.
