The future of of midfielder Sean Goss has been a big talking point at QPR this season, with the talented midfielder not currently being part of Ian Holloway's plans.

The 22-year-old joined from Manchester United in January, and has been limited to just six first team appearances for the Hoops, despite being brought in as an addition for the first team.

So what does the future hold for the talented midfielder?

Quite simply, Goss is at a stage in his career where he needs to be thinking about first team football.

Having seen him in action, most recently in yesterday's victory over Coventry City under-23s at Loftus Road, it's clear to see that he's an excellent deep-lying playmaker, but the question is whether there is space for a player like this in Ollie's system.

Goss is very similar in style to the likes of Manchester United's Michael Carrick, but in my opinion these types of players typically do better in teams who dominate possession.

What Holloway has drilled his team to do is out-work the opposition in order to make things difficult for the other team, and while Goss clearly works hard on the field, his strengths are more based around getting on the ball and picking out a pass.

QPR's midfield is arguably the toughest in terms of competition, with first team players such as Ryan Manning, Ariel Borysiuk and Yeni Ngbakoto unable to break into the starting XI, most likely because Ian Holloway's current system doesn't play to their strengths.

The under-23s is a great platform for allowing academy stars to move up towards first team football, but for a player like Goss, he now needs the rough and tumble of competitive first team football.

Does he have a future at QPR? I certainly don't see why not. However the focus for Goss must now be towards making himself first team-ready at the earliest opportunity, whether that means heeding Ollie's advice on how to break into the Hoops side, or holding out for a loan move in January to develop in the more physical environment of League One or League Two.
