Premier League: What Happened to QPR

The season started with such promise being lifted into the Premier League, players performing well and a sense of Optimism around the club but what happend to that team?

This season serious considerations will have to be taken with regards to QPR by management, chairman and players alike at how the team will move forward. Following their relegation from the Premier League.

Rangers had an ok start to their season drawing with Stoke and earning a 2-2 draw with Manchester City. The side then went on to beat their fellow promoted sides Leicester and Burnley as well as West Brom. But January signalled the start of bad things to come when Rangers were unable to pick up a win until February against Sunderland.

Rangers then went into some tough fixtures facing Tottenham, Arsenal, an inform Palace side and Everton losing all four games. On the final day of the season Queens Park Rangers fell to Man City which confirmed QPRs relegation.

But what caused that to happen?

Harry Redknapp Leaving?

During Redknapp's time at the club he brought in a range of different players and moved many on. Redknapp strengthened the squad by signing Rio Ferdinand, Eduardo Vargas, Jordan Mutch and Sandro. The players all looked to initially add something to the team but the results still weren't coming to the side. However, Redknapp did look to be building the side but left in January of 2015 due to Knee problems.

Players up for the fight?

Many have asked the question as to whether the QPR players were up for the fight of staying up. Although certain results have suggested that they are, showing a great performance despite the loss against Chelsea and drawing 3-3 with Villa. Although on the final day of the season QPR had a chance to keep their hopes of staying up alive had they won. The side lost to Man City 6-0 which again called into question how much the players are up for the fight.

How the club is run?

The Club have spent a lot of money on the players and their wages this season, which has raised Financial Fair Play issues and the side could be looking at a possible fine. But the bigger question here is whether the side have spent money for the short term when they may have needed to spend for the long term.

Only Rangers themselves will know what the real fault is but the club will be looking to jump straight back into the Premier League again which will be a tough ask. With many players out of contract at the end of the year and a possible re-think of their staff and vision going forward, only time will tell what the future holds for QPR...
