New Kits, New signings, and New Manager, Queen Park rangers has no reason to disappoint its fans for the rest of the 2018/2019 season. QPR started the season on a bad note losing the first four games on what would be considered underdogs teams or rather average teams. A humiliation to the R’s fans came when they were downtrodden by West Brom seven goals to one. On what seemed to be a lesson learnt from that recent loss, it didn’t sink well to the McClaren boys because they conceded 3 goals on their match day four at Loftus road. Well, that was a poor start of the season and only the strong can stand that. Despite all that as at 30th November 2018, QPR has played 19 matches out of the 46 possible matches and hold the ninth position out of the 24 teams they are competing. So what should you expect from the R’s?

Home ground factor

It is an undeniable truth that playing at home ground has an edge psychological on players. The cheering from the crowd, the convenience of not travelling such as no fatigue, and playing from a regular pitch all that makes playing at home ground be fun. That’s exactly what QPR’s players have taken advantage of by maintain conceding less goals at home match and frustrating the opponents by scoring more goals. QPR has lost any home match in October and November 2018. Such a decent home record is a force to reckon with and worth receiving credit.

New Manager Effect

Steve McClaren is an experienced coach who has had a chance to steer the England team to greater heights under his tenure. His coaching career began in 2001 with Middlesbrough and has had chance to manage seven other top team. Well from the eight teams McClaren has managed, 5 of the teams are from England. This is a clear indication that McClaren is an experienced person with England teams and knows the right approach when it comes to having his way to the helm of English competitions. QPR contracted his services on 18th May 2018 before the kick start of the 2018/2019 season. The bad of the season hasn’t kept the coach off his vision of the club since after losing the first four matches, the coach has demonstrated his solid coaching skills amid lack of spending during the transfer market. All doubts cast away; QPR has received a whole turn around since McClaren was brought on board. From a finish of 16th place last season, it is likely that QPR will not linger anywhere near that spot again anytime soon.

New Signings

At the end of the 2018/2018 season, QPR has attracted seven new players to its current squad. G. Cameron, S. Goss, Angel Rangel, T. Hemed, N. Wells and M. Ingram are the new players who joined QPR this current season. Though the club didn’t spend a dime over the players, the players have faired well by scoring goals. Of the new signings one spectacular player is US born Geoff Cameron. The player has fit well to the QPR team by making many appearances to the team and forming a seamless playing relationship with Massimo Luongo. Cameron as famously known was the first player to score for QPR during the 2018/2019 season.

What does all this mean for the current season

All indicators point to a team that needs patience as their new manager echoed on a recent interview. By the fact the club didn’t spend money during the transfer window nor has it scout players for the upcoming January transfer window, there is very little to change in terms of a bang from the team other
