Critchley insists he is the right man for QPR
Neil Critchley insisted he is the right man to manage QPR after their dismal run continued with a 3-0 defeat at home to Sunderland.
Rangers are now without a win in 10 matches, have won just one of their past 17, and one of their 11 games since Critchley took over as head coach in the wake of Michael Beale’s departure.
They were top of the table when they beat Wigan on 22 October but that was their last home win. Their latest loss – their seventh at home this season – left them 17th.
Asked if he feels he is the right man for the job, Critchley said: “I believe I am, yes. I believe in my own ability to get the best out of this group of players.
“I didn’t see a team that wasn’t together or fighting tonight. I saw the players having a go.
“But it’s mistakes that are killing us. Sloppy goals are killing us. I didn’t see a team that had given up or lacked heart or desire.”
Rangers’ slump began under Beale but their decline since Critchley took over means he is under pressure.
Critchley admitted: “I’d be lying if I said I was enjoying the situation and the run we’re on.
“But you know what you sign up for when you take the job as a manager. It’s a tough moment but you have to roll your sleeves up and fight.
“If you ask any coach what they need, it’s always time. I know what I want to do and how I want to do it. I have to find a way to get the best out of these players.”

Who is this performance manager? I cant find anything about him/her.

Hi T Block, I would like to think he told some home truths (if he’s any good) and got knocked back and so scuttled off. At this rate there will be nobody left there soon.

Evening Angry, and now it transpires that our long serving performance manager has upped sticks and gone to West Ham to join Mark Warburton !
A better offer ?
Or has he told Neil Critchley a few home truths ?
“Answers on a post card pop pickers” !
QPR in the words of comedy legend Mike Smash:
“Absolutely Crappa Doodle Tastic” !!!

“Neil Critchley insisted he is the right man to manage QPR” – results say otherwise old chap.

Just watched the Sunderland extended highlights. Our marking was atrocious. where were they apart from all over the place? and we wonder why/how we got beat.
Status Quo Down Down , our new signature tune.

T Block – haven’t bothered with his interview, same old same old I would think. YES – switch again, sooner or later Les will get it right (he’s had enough goes over the years).

“I didn’t see a team that wasn’t together or fighting tonight. I saw the players having a go”. – I saw a team not making any attempt to try. Just admire our penalty attempt and the goals let in for proof. Where was our attacking super force? ah yes, helping out our woeful midfield & defence.
When I look at the likes of Fulham & Brentford and then look at us, I shak my head in disbelief. If they can do it, why cant we. C’mon Les, roll your sleeves up and do something special, you know, like you used to do years ago. Sort it out pronto or else we will slide down into obscurity. Something HAS to change.

I am waiting for the post match Post Mortem Interview to appear where we will be treated to the “We are a young squad and still developing” blah. The same blah trundled out by Mark Warburton when things started to get away from him. Funny how the broken record that is QPR sticks in the same place time and again.
But what to do ?
Stick with Critchley and perhaps go down ?
Gods not the little Welsh Cry Baby !
Tommy Doherty and an Ouija Board is a better choice as a replacement than him !
Switch again ?
