I started watching QPR around 94/95. The days where Sir Les and Big Trev started to fade out, so for me there were no real good old days for QPR, just old days. The last two seasons though have been somewhat of a revelation. The mood in South Africa Road has improved 10 fold and we’ve been watching the best football I’ve ever seen at the club. Warnock has come with the key. Seeing players like Derry, Kenny and Taarabt (to name a few) week in, week out giving 100% every time is what we need in English football right now.
I would like to think the mighty R’s are good enough to stay up, but the premiership is a completely different ball game (pun intended). The likes of Routledge, Taarabt, Mackie, Faurlin harks back to the days of Sinclair, Ferdinand, Gallen, Peacock for me. This is the first time QPR has won anything in my life time and I’m overjoyed. I could most certainly see us competing in the Prem for a long time, because we are a big club and we’re meant to be there. I’d like to hold on to Warnock and see what he can do in the top flight, he’s the go to man to get a team promoted so let’s make him the go to man to keep a team up.
We’re playing as a team now, rather than 11 individuals (remember Stuart Houston ahem!) and we have Warnock to thank for that.
Adel Taarabt is a good example of his people coaching. As we all know Taarabt is the best footballer in the Championship, ey ey, however he wasn’t at the start of the season. He had raw talent but he was naive and brash. Warnock controversially (and rightfully so) made him the captain to give him a sense of responsibility and make him think about other team mates before himself, and it worked. This is what Warnock does behind the scenes, and it’s just like the good old days with Sir Ray Wilkins. For once, as a Rangers fan, I have faith.
