In a nutshell, QPR brought in two strikers during the transfer window - sold one, sent two out on loan along with a midfielder - and added a keeper to the roster.

The deals that didn’t happen were almost as important to the club finances as those across the line.

There were no takers for £6 million rated Matt Phillips, supposedly wanted by West Brom, and likewise no final push for £40k-a-week Rob Green as GetWestLondon predicted.

However, the Rangers summer plan did get shifted to the winter.

When it was warm, Hoops hoped to offload all the big money earners, and start again with a more pragmatic approach to transfers and wages. For pragmatic, read cheaper.

Charlie Austin, Sandro , Leroy Fer and Steven Caulker were either sold or loaned - eventually. In Caulker’s case, for the second time.

In came League One hotshots, Conor Washington and Nasser El Khayati courtesy of League One knowledge picked up by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink when at Burton.

From Wycombe, Matt Ingrams was brought in to give Alex Smithies competition for the keeper’s gloves - so what we can expect from future line-ups?

Nasser El Khayati

The likely QPR line-up

Keeper: Alex Smithies, Matt Ingram, Joe Lumley

GWL prediction: Smithies, and a couple of runouts for Ingram towards the end of the season

Back four: A GWL no brainer if all fit and suspension free

Perch, Hall, Onuoha, Konchesky

Midfield: Phillips (now he’s staying), Luongo, Henry (defensive midfield), Hoilett/Fer (a position to fight over)

Number 10/left winger

El Khayati

Forwards: GWL assumes it will be an approximate version of a front two, therefore:

Polter, Washington
