There was a lot of chatter following QPR boss Ian Holloway's comments after the Peterborough United friendly at the weekend.

The Rs boss admitted that the Hoops fans were probably unaware that "the bomb has gone off" behind the scenes, saying that what had happened before at the club was holding them back now.

And with a Financial Fair Play hearing still to be resolved, fans questioned if his quotes had something to do with an impending announcement.

QPR boss Ian Holloway says fans don't know that 'the bomb has gone off' behind the scenes at Loftus Road

But Holloway has moved to clarify his comments.

He said: "I said the bomb has already gone off, in reference to the money that has been spent in the last few years by the club.

"The club have spent an astronomical amount of money but we didn't have great success in return for that incredible outlay. THAT was the bomb.

"I knew that before I came here. This isn't new, this isn't about now. That bomb went off a couple of years ago!

"I am here to tidy things up, and help my owners get value for money from everyone we've got, and whoever we might get.

"What we want to do is make this club sustainable. So I need the fans, more than anybody, to be patient, to trust me and to see what we are all trying to do here.

"The owners are trying their best, but we have to do things the right way, making sensible, clever buys."
