Why it’s suddenly all going right for QPR

After a truly miserable start to the season for QPR fans, things have been going pretty well of late.

It has been quite a turnaround in fortunes for the R’s, who looked definite relegation material after losing their first four league games under Steve McClaren.

Now things like much rosier – on and off the pitch.

The unbeaten run

Having endured that awful start, which included a 7-1 hammering at West Brom, few could have predicted Rangers’ current resurgence.

McClaren’s side have won three in a row – keeping three clean sheets in the process – and have won four of their last five games.

In fact, since that horror show at West Brom, Rangers have lost just two of their subsequent 11 league matches.

Decent transfer business

The key to the turnaround has been three quality loan signings.

A club so often associated with poor transfer dealings in recent years, Rangers have got it right this time.

Strikers Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells have given them a threat up front and a quality defensive midfielder in Geoff Cameron has also made a big difference.

Training ground boost

As if all that wasn’t enough good news for Rangers, things finally seem to be looking up behind the scenes too.

The club’s long-running battle to build a new training ground at Warren Farm has finally been resolved, with the Supreme Court throwing out an appeal lodged by objectors.

Jubilant chief executive Lee Hoos told QPR’s website: “We’re delighted that all legal avenues to frustrate this process have now been exhausted.

“A new training ground, which brings together the first team and the academy, is an important part of a strategic long-term plan for the club.

“The delays have been very frustrating. Not only have they delayed us securing a new training ground for the club but they have delayed the huge community benefit to residents from improved sports facilities and the programmes that QPR in the Community Trust will run at Warren Farm.

“We look forward to engaging with Ealing residents, sports clubs and the council about those facilities and programmes as construction gets underway.”
