Queens Park Rangers fans have endured a rollercoaster ride so far this season but are currently enjoying a major rise.
Steve McClaren’s side lost their opening four Championship matches, including a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of West Brom, and it appeared that the former England boss would not last too much longer in his role.
Many fans called for his head on Twitter following the poor start but McClaren has since turned things around at Loftus Road, as QPR extended their unbeaten run to five matches following Wednesday’s victory over Millwall.
The club’s fine run includes three victories in four league matches that have sent QPR flying up the standings and the upturn has seen many change their tune in McClaren, stating that they were wrong with their criticisms.
Meanwhile, others who stuck by McClaren have now mocked those who called for his departure. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Good post match interview from McClaren on Sky. Professional, no self publicity, no silly quotes or having a pop at the fans. 👌 #QPR

Fair play to Mclaren, turned us right around. No silly interviews, gimmicks, slagging our fans off. Just playing players in their positions, getting quality loan players in, recognising weak links and dropping them and keeping to a system that suits us. #QPR

Got to say I’m slightly in shock how much different we look after the first 4 games

I will accept on this very rare occasion that I may have been wrong about McLaren…

I went to Loftus Rd last night and I have to say I was very impressed with our performance. I take back any negative comments about Steve McClaren I may have made in the past. This team could surprise a few people including me. #QPR
