‘Pathetic’ QPR need three January signings, says former star

QPR hero Rodney Marsh believes that Harry Redknapp needs to bring in three quality players in January to avoid relegation following their “pathetic” performance against West Ham over the weekend.

The Super Hoops sit at the foot of the Premier League table after seven games thanks to their woeful -11 goal difference – the worst in the division – with many tipping them for an immediate return to the Championship.

QPR invested in a few big name players over the summer – namely Leroy Fer and Sandro – but the transition back to top flight football was made all the more difficult by the permanent exit of Loic Remy and the failure to land Fabio Borini from Liverpool on deadline day.

And Marsh believes that chairman Tony Fernandes and Redknapp have to work together to improve the situation in the New Year or face relegation:

“Pathetic is one word [to describe it] but I will add embarrassing,” he said when asked by talkSPORT about the 2-0 loss at West Ham. “Tony Fernandes needs to look at the transfer window. We will be in trouble at Christmas and Harry Redknapp must add three players who will get the team out of this relegation battle. There needs to be changes, I look at the players like Leroy Fer, is he capable of pulling you out of a relegation battle?

“Sandro was bought in to show some fight but isn’t. To me he looks like a red card waiting to happen every time he plays. I’m very, very disappointed in QPR and I can’t see how they will dig themselves out of this hole. Who can they sign to change the team? The only person to show a bit of fight is Joey Barton and he’s not playing.”

QPR’s are set to take on Liverpool, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Manchester City in their next four games, and Marsh believes that things will not be getting better at Lofts Road in a hurry:

“Even if we get three points out of the next 12, Rangers are still bottom of the table.”
