Surely it can’t be lost on QPR they sacked a manager in exactly the same week last year as this?
It gets better.
Chris Ramsey lost an away game at Brentford and then lucked out at Derby the match after. He was given the boot.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink lost a home game to the Bees, and the next match drew with another east Midlands side, Nottingham Forest, and was also shown the door.
The chanted club mantra for six months has been ‘consolidation’ - shorthand for we can only afford modest players and need to hope for a play-off spot at best.
So there mus be more to Hasselbaink’s firing than just a current 17th place, because two wins takes them back to the play-offs - it’s that tight a league.
Rumours coming out of the training ground suggest the Dutchman had only a partial grip on the reins, and lack lustre draws; defeats that should have been a point; and only five wins out of 16 hardly helped.
One thing fans can discount is the hoo-hah created by the Telegraph sting when undercover reporters supposedly had JFH bang to rights on third-party transfers.
The club didn’t believe it.
What it appears they did believe was the ex-Chelsea striker wasn’t getting the best out of the side, and anyone watching the Brentford debacle, and there were millions on live TV who did, could see it, too.
