ImageIf we need a manager that can get a team to play good football on a small budget and get us challenging for the play-offs then how about that ex-Forest and Brentford bloke who has just come on to the market.

I reckon the board must think that the dip in form is down to the manager losing the dressing room. We've all seen the poor performances of late and put it down to injuries but i wonder if they've seen this as a golden opportunity to get promoted lost because the players have lost faith in him? Does make you wonder when we've had games with hardly any shots on goal.

So rather than take a chance and see if the poor form continues into next season, they want to get someone in now who can start work on the team before pre season. Dieng and Dickie will be sold which will free up money for the new manager to spend. However it was a disastrous start by McLaren when they did that, albeit he picked it up mid season before almost relegating us. Lets hope lightening doesn't strike twice.

We have not played good football or realistically challenged the play-offs since February. Maybe that’s when our players tired and other teams with more pace and power came into the picture. Something ably demonstrated by Sheffield United tonight.

According to the paper, Daniel Farke, Slavisa Jokanavic and Chris Hughton have been added to our "shortlist".

We've been on a poor run and had a lot of injuries. We've played good football over the three years that Warburton has been here and challenged for the play-offs this season.

We played PASSAGES of good football the past years and ATTEMPTED a play off challenge this year.
When you look at the complete picture it has been good and bad and alas the bad period at the end lasted too long with no improvement in sight. We are going nowhere really fast.
Fresh ideas and new players are very much needed.

Unfortunately, it was destined to end this way.

I love Warbs but we consistently failed to take care of the football or win first contact and lacked intensity...

Today was very telling ...

We are currently in 12th place with 63 points and a 0 goal difference. Bournemouth and Forest sit second and third with 82 and 79 points respectively and a goal difference of plus 33 and plus 34. That is the nature of the gap. One of them will join Fulham in the Premier League next season, and probably both of them.

I haven't seen anything this season to suggest we have the players to be at that level. Sure, we have spent a lot of time in the top six, but that was a false position. What I think has happened over the last three years is we have seen a steady improvement. Before MW arrived we were fighting relegation year after year, and nervously looking over our shoulders.

The Board have decided to take a huge risk by throwing that steady progress out the window. I really hope it comes off, but to do so, we will need to find some gems, and everyone of our first team squad will need to up their game considerably.

Some fair points there Wegs, but a little harsh in my view. The majority of the last three years have been better than the years before them. Time will tell I guess. The board don't have a good record of managerial appointments. Warburton was the only one we've seen any sustained progress under. Let's hope they get it right.

For me, MW was the best manager we’ve had since Warnock. Incredibly big shoes to fill.

If the last decade has told us anything about this board it’s that they don’t have a clue what they’re doing when it comes to managerial appointments.

As LFW said on Twitter, let’s hope we start next season on fire or I can see it getting pretty nasty…

Step back and overall it's been a good season.

I'm optimistic for next year for the Rs.

Tbh I genuinely thought QPR was sewn on for promotion a couple of months ago.


Another nothing season in prospect for Bristol though. Mid table mediocrity this year and next. Pesky FFP rules.
QPR is my second team - not many Bristol City fans can say that!

Consider Burnley. They had become predictable cautious and uninspired under Dyche. The new guy, Jackson, has them fired up. Hopefully to be replicated here. Full credit to the Burnley Board for being willing to gamble.
