Money Well Spent Or A January Panic

Sunday 19th February 2012
January was always going to be a massive month for Queens Park Rangers, with the home faithful and football pundits expressing: "QPR need somebody who has the ability to score goals regularly."

Neil Warnock did a marvellous job with the funds and quality available to make the club a Premier League team again. However, without a win in two months and concerns that he had lost the dressing room, Tony Fernandes felt it was time to change and act quickly.

Mark Hughes was brought in and spent over £10 million during the transfer window, bringing in 5 new faces. Bobby Zamora and Djibril Cisse are the pick of the bunch and both scored for QPR on their debuts, bringing extra optimism to everybody associated with QPR.

However, it doesn't matter how much money you spend, the gaffer must find a recipe for success as quickly as possible. Winning games is the aim and QPR have struggled to do so, slumping to consecutive defeats to Wolves and Blackburn.

The worry is whether Hughes spent wisely or made panic buys. With the team training in Portugal this week, it has given the boss and players time to work together. A great idea, and the reports and videos show that it has been a worthwhile exercise. I'll be honest - but now the next league game against Fulham is a must win game.

On paper QPR now have a superb squad equipped to staying in the best league in the world and are surely better than three other teams in this division.
