The QPR assistant manager Mark Bowen has said that he wants the QPR players to get angry about the current league position, which he hopes that will turn around the season for the struggling London team.
Despite spending a lot of money on several high profile players like Park Ji sung and José Bosingwa, QPR have found it difficult to get the first win of the season under the manager Mark Hughes. The former Manchester city and Fulham manager has come under intense pressure, and he is not expected to last long in the job if results do not improve before Christmas.
Even though he has had the public backing of the owner Tony Fernandes, it is seriously thought that the Malaysian is considering other replacements if results do not improve. As a result of the winless run that now stretches to 10 games, QPR find themselves just one place above the bottom of the table. They were not expected to be in a relegation fight let alone just one place above the bottom of the table. The QPR manager Mark Hughes has said that it would be a catastrophe if the club were to go down, but he would do anything to prevent that from happening.
“They held their hands up and took it on board and we will work at it to make sure we are better next time. We encouraged them to point a few fingers and put demands on them. I want them to be a bit more angry and demanding of each other. People talk about Harry Redknapp and this and that. The fact is he took over Southampton in 2005 as the big saviour and he took them down,” said the QPR assistant manager ahead of this weekend’s encounter with Stoke city, who are the draw specialists.
