Ian Holloway has likened QPR January transfer targets to long-life bread - in only the way the Rs boss can do.
If a Bird in the Taxi was the manager's way of describing a routine make-do win when he was Hoops boss in 2002. Then the players he gets in now have to be here for the long haul - hence, the long-life tag.

New loan rules mean all business is done for the rest of the season on the stroke of 11pm on January 31, providing a deal is not already in progress.
Ollie is worried a deal done in haste will come back to bite them a bit later, when it's all too late.
"It's the first time the window will slam shut and then you can't go shopping," he said.
"You've got to buy long life bread and long life milk.
"It's the same for everyone. I have had the clearout. I feel some are better off going somewhere else.
"The fans may think I've taken too long but it's important to give everyone a chance and move things forward."
Rangers have brought just one new face in so far: winger Kazenga Lua-Lua on loan from Brighton, while Sebastian Polter has left to join Union Berlin; Tjaronn Chery is on the cusp of completing a big money move to China; and Ben Gladwin and Brandon Comley have been sent out on loan.
