The announcements coming out of QPR in the last 24 hours have certainly left many fans scratching their heads, and wondering what is going on behind the scenes.

First came the announcement of Ian Holloway’s players’ committee to aid management of the squad, followed by a piece in The Sun around the club’s newfound use for the mystical art of feng shui to create a more positive energy around the place.

These two announcements were then topped off by a tweet by QPR’s Tony Fernandes in which he said: “We have a scouting department that are doing it correctly. We have a stable squad. First time in 5 years. Building a sustainable club”.

Having gauged the reaction of many fans on social media, it appears that the general consensus is based on a degree of desperation to make changes, while others have expressed their desire for the club to retain focus on bringing in new additions to strengthen the squad.

However I feel that these changes behind the scenes symbolise a new era for the club, as they look to gradually rebuild after a turbulent few years.

The art of balancing the books has been tricky to say the least, as the club have previously been forced to dispose of the service of their higher earners in order to make the club sustainable, but this approach seems to be nearing it’s end.

It appears that the club now feel they all of the foundations in place to finally start moving forward once again, as opposed to cutting their cloth.

Fans will unsurprisingly be expecting a similar summer to previous years where the entrance at Harlington has been something of a revolving door, but with the squad largely trimmed down from it’s extortionate Premier League wage bill, attention can now turn to slowly making improvements to the team, rather than simply finding adequate replacements.

The statement by Fernandes on social media strongly implies that the years of turbulence behind the scenes at Loftus Road appear to be over, and that he finally has a set-up in place where they can slowly build towards a brighter future for the club once again.
