Queens Park Rangers simply cannot wait for the season to end after falling to their sixth consecutive defeat against local rivals Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.
The Bees completed a historic league double over The R’s thanks to a goal from Yoann Barbet and a double from Jota.
The result crowned off a truly dismal period for Rangers with the club having accrued just 50 points in a season which has seen the club change their transfer policy after cutting their wage bill last summer.
The change in strategy at Loftus Road indicated that the club would look to attract hungry young players who are determined to fight for the shirt however recent results suggest that manager Ian Holloway has a big job ahead of him in the summer with the squad needing some surgery to address a number of weaknesses.
The main problem for The R’s is the amount of games which they have lost this season. The club’s defeat at Brentford was their 22nd of the campaign which is just one better than second bottom club Wigan Athletic and three more than relegation haunted Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers.
In attack, QPR have managed a little over a goal a game which is poor in a division know for its excitement and attacking football while the club have conceded 62 goals in their 44 matches so boss Holloway needs to address both areas for the club to enjoy a more successful campaign next term.
Overall, it has been a season of change at Loftus Road and maybe one to forget for the club’s fans. The summer is going to be crucial for The R’s and the quality of their signings will very much indicate whether next season is likely to be one of success or struggle in West London.
