Things haven’t gone as planned.
Three months into the 2012/2013 season Rangers are rooted firmly to the bottom of the Premier League table and with a visit to Arsenal this Saturday it is feasible to suggest that defeat could signal the end for the Welshman. When Warnock was shown the exit door, I think generally most QPR fans were very disappointed to see him go - the man brought the club from third bottom to winners of the Championship within fourteen months – the least he deserved was a proper crack at the Premier League. However, I think the general consensus regarding Hughes was that he was a good manager with a good track record, and despite the discontent the club was in safe hands.
Up against an Arsenal team that attack from all angles this Saturday, QPR with the second weakest defense in the Premier League, will have to step up to the plate of they want to boost their manager’s job security. Though considering Hughes’ away record since taking charge – an embarrassing 2 points from a possible 39 - it’d take the biggest shock this season so far if his team manage to leave their London neighbors with a victory.
Harry Redknapp anyone?
