It's been a great start to the season at Loftus Road as the Hoops have massively exceeded expectations.

The season started with back-to-back victories over Reading and Northampton Town, before earning a deserved point on a tricky trip to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday.

QPR suffered a 2-0 defeat away at Norwich, but bounced back against Hull City at the weekend with a second half fight back.

The Hoops have made three senior signings this summer, but with just a week and a half remaining of the summer transfer window, do you think Ian Holloway needs to make further additions to the squad?

And what about players departing the club? Will the Hoops be able to keep hold of their star players?

Kaylee - How have house prices changed in west London since you took over covering QPR?

Did you know that you’re the first person ever to make a Location, Location, Location joke?

Delving into my apparent property expertise, i’m going to have to go with my gut and assume they’ve gone up ten-fold, hence the reason why the youths of today can’t get on the housing ladder; but that’s a rant for another day!

Ryan - Who would win in a fight between Ian Holloway, Slavisa Jokanovic and Dean Smith?

Now we’re talking!

In my professional view; you couldn’t back anybody but Ollie.

Let’s take nothing away from Jokanovic or Smith, I’m sure each of them has a trick or two of their respective sleeves, but anyone who bets against Ian Holloway in such a battle will be sadly disappointed.

Will you be covering the Carabao Cup third round draw at 4.15am on Thursday?

Unfortunately, yes!

I’m sure the people at Carabao have done this just to annoy sports reporters like myself, and i’ll be highly disappointed if they don’t send out a free energy drink to every reporter covering the draw.

For those interested in knowing how the glamorous life of a sports reporter work; the team at Get West London will be picking names out of a hat to decide who has to get out of bed at such an ungodly hour to cover the draw.

Wouldn’t it just be fitting for our draw to also be dripping in controversy?

How will the team get on against Brentford?

The outcome of cup games are always difficult to predict as you never know which teams the manager will pick!

On current form, i’d be hopeful that QPR could have enough to progress at the expense of the Bees, who currently sit bottom of the Championship.

However they’ll be more determined than ever to get a positive result at the home of their rivals, and this is something that the Hoops will need to be wary of.

If i had to put my head on the block, I’d predict that QPR will advance with a 2-1 win; but don’t hold me to that!

Neil – Following rumours of Yeni Ngbakoto being unsettled, is he likely to leave the club?

The future of Ngbakoto is something which will certainly be decided in the next week-and-a-half.

The winger’s stay in West London didn’t get off to the best of starts last season when he suffered a family bereavement, meaning that he didn’t quite settle as well as what he would have wanted.

Several clubs have been interested in a move for him this summer, most notably Toulouse in France’s Ligue 1, but I understand that the interest has now cooled.

Ngbakoto has had another disjointed start to the campaign after missing the Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich games with an ankle injury, before missing the Hull clash with his partner expected to give birth.

It’ll be interesting to see how this develops, but if Ngbakoto does end up moving away then the club would need to act quickly to replace him.

Jay – What do you know about QPR target Paul Smythe?

The Linfield winger is thought to be attracting the interest of a number of clubs in England and Scotland, including Reading and QPR.

The chairman of the Northern Irish champions said that they’ve had interest in Smythe, but he’s adamant that the club will not be selling him on the cheap.

Smythe was born on September 10th 1997 in Northern Ireland, who he has represented at Under-19 and under-21 level.

He scored for the under-21 team against Ukraine in a 1-1 draw in 2016, and was invited to join Michael O’Neill’s Euro 2016 senior squad to boost numbers and gain experience at a higher level.

The 19-year-old scored six goals in 25 appearances for Linfield last season as they won the Northen Irish Premiership title, setting up a Champions League Qualifying tie with Scottish champions Celtic; where they lost 6-0 on aggregate.

Mark – Will any players leave the club before the end of August?

I’d expect that some players will leave before the end of the month, yes.

In terms of the first team squad, i’d expect a situation now where barring perhaps the addition of an attacking player, it could be a case of “one in one out”.

The first few games of the season have told us a lot about which players Ian Holloway rates in his system, and which players could be deemed surplus to requirements if an offer was to come in.

With this in mind I wouldn’t rule out the fact that some players may leave the club, however I wouldn’t expect Ollie would be happy to lose any of his preferred team, particularly at this late stage of the transfer window.

But any fringe players who can be sold to fund new signings, or young prospects who can gain first team football out on loan, may well head out of Loftus Road in the next week-and-a-half.

Jack - How important is a result at Cardiff at the weekend?

Getting a result against Cardiff would be a huge boost going into the international break.

If QPR can get through August with just one defeat in the league, this’ll do wonders for confidence in the squad; especially considering how tough the month looked on paper.

It’s certain to be a difficult afternoon in Cardiff, who have won four from four in the league so far, but you have to remember that QPR have faced some of the league’s strongest clubs in the opening month, and have looked every bit as good as them.

It’s expected that Cardiff will get a result on Saturday, but there’s no reason why QPR can’t cause an upset as they go into the game with confidence.

Peter - What team do you expect to start against Brentford in the Carabao Cup?

I’d certainly expect Ian Holloway to make a number of changes for the clash with the Bees.

QPR have kept a consistent team so far this season, but the cup provides the opportunity to rest those who have played regularly in each game.

It’s also the chance to see some of the squad players in action, so the likes of Steven Caulker, Jack Robinson, Ariel Borysiuk, Ryan Manning and Idrissa Sylla are all likely to feature.

Predicted QPR team: Ingram, Furlong, Caulker, Baptiste, Onuoha, Robinson, Borysiuk, Manning, Ngbakoto, Sylla, Smith.

Rowan – Do you think Steven Caulker will remain at the club after the end of the transfer window?

There is nothing to suggest that Steven Caulker will not be a QPR player at the end of the transfer window.

Other than initial interest from Celtic earlier in the summer, I understand that the club haven’t had any concrete interest in the defender, who has one year left on his contract at Loftus Road.

Ian Holloway has expressed his desire the help the defender, and gave him a chance to impress in the Carabao Cup first round against Northampton Town where he looked to grow in confidence.

Ollie admitted that it would have been tempting to throw him back into the first team after that, but it’s essential that he is eased back into the pressure of first team football.

It’s expected that Caulker will feature in the Carabao Cup second round game against Brentford tomorrow night, and this will be another big step in the defender’s journey to return to full match fitness.

Henry - Which youth prospects can we expect to burst onto the scene this season?

Thanks for the question Henry!

Last season saw the emergence of young players such as Ryan Manning and Darnell Furlong, and the focus for them will very much be around trying to force their way into the first team on a regular basis.

The club has a number of exciting talents coming through the ranks, but the three who stood out during pre-season were Eberechi Eze, Niko Hamalainen and Giles Phillips.

All of these players are particularly raw at this stage, so it’s unlikely that Ian Holloway will thrust them into the team until they are ready, but it’d be great to see them feature at some point.

What’s more likely is that they get the opportunity to gain first team football in League One or League Two. This would give them game-time at a senior level, while giving them the experience which could prove vital in forcing their way into Ian Holloway’s plans.

Joe – How important was Saturday’s win over Hull City?

Securing the victory against Hull was crucial for QPR.

The result at this stage is not going to make or break the season for the Hoops, but what it does do is ensure that the feelgood factor at Loftus Road continues.

Getting the win means that QPR have only lost one of five games so far this season, while if they fell to defeat it would have made it three games without a win.

It’s a fickle game, but having the mental edge is crucial to keeping the morale up in the squad, and being able to “right the wrong” of the defeat to Norwich will have done the world of good for the team.

Scott - Will Ian Holloway deliver promotion for QPR?

That’s a difficult one!

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, the emphasis at the club has very much been about rebuilding the club and starting again.

Many pundits have tipped QPR to struggle, and despite getting off to an excellent start in the league this season, I think talk of promotion this season is premature; especially with such strong competition in the league.

However if Holloway’s plan to rebuild his squad go accordingly, he will certainly be targeting a push for promotion in the next 2-3 years, but it’s important not to run before you can walk.

Stephen – How would you assess QPR’s signings in the transfer market?

If i was to summarise QPR’s additions this summer in one word it would be shrewd.

It’s much publicised that the Hoops are looking to keep an eye on the financial side of things, and with this in mind, it’s understandable that the club are looking to be smart in the players that they’ve brought in.

As well as the financial side of things, this is the first summer that Ian Holloway has had to build HIS team, and this has been a real focus this summer.

Josh Scowen, looks set to be crucial for QPR this summer, and already looks to be a real coup after joining on a free transfer from Barnsley.

It was common knowledge that QPR needed an experienced defender in their ranks, and so Alex Baptiste was a smart choice. Only time will tell how he gets on at Loftus Road, but he looked solid and capable in his debut against Hull on Saturday.

Baptiste is a big personality both on and off the pitch, so hopefully he will be able to have a positive impact on the Hoops squad this summer.

As for Kazenga Lua Lua, we saw in glimpses what he is capable of last season. We’ll all be hoping he can show this on a more regular basis this season, as the attacker’s low centre of gravity makes him a real threat when he turns and runs at defenders.

I think QPR could use maybe one or two new signings before the transfer deadline, but the business they’ve done so far has the early signs of being smart and effective.

Jake - What do you make of Josh Scowen since he arrived?

Josh Scowen has been QPR’s best player since he rejoined the club.

It’s unusual for a player to hit the ground running in such a way, but it’s no exaggeration to say that the former Barnsley man looks like he’s been playing in the Hoops’ midfield for years.

What Scowen has shown is an ability to act as shield to the defence, getting stuck in with tackles, closing down spaces and then laying the ball off to Massimo Luongo and Luke Freeman to start a counter attack.

However he’s also shown his willingness and ability to get forward, and has found himself within shooting range on numerous occasions, making it likely that he’ll be able to chip in with a few goals this season too.

Obviously it’s early days but Scowen looks set to be crucial for QPR this season.
