Ian Holloway has suggested that some QPR players previously underperformed in an attempt to get him sacked.
Holloway says his players have been reacting well when left out of the side by him.
But the Rangers manager hinted that has not always been the case since his return to Loftus Road for a second spell at the helm.
He told West London Sport: “I can drop whoever I like, whenever I like.
“They’ve just got to do their job – and their job is to stop moaning and just do what I tell them. That’s the new QPR.
“You want them to accept it in the right way. The simple thing is: ‘Hang on a minute, I’m doing my job, you shut up and do yours. In your contract, does it say you’re going to play every week? Or have you got to earn that right?’
“And if you’re not picked and you’re sat on the bench, your job’s to come on and make a difference. So, just do your job. It’s simple.
“At last I can do that here. Because when I first started saying things like that, people would sulk and try and get me the sack by not trying too hard. But they don’t do that anymore, do they? Thank God.
“I’m delighted for them. I haven’t got a player here who doesn’t want us to win. I haven’t got a player here who doesn’t want to play. I haven’t got a player here who is happy not being picked.
“I’m telling you they’re working as a group and I’ll try to keep this going.”
Holloway’s side face Fulham in a derby at Craven Cottage later today.
Josh Scowen is expected to miss out after suffering a suspected burst appendix, while Jack Robinson and Paul Smyth are doubts.
