After 12 games without a win and only having four points to their name it is fair to say that QPR was everyone’s favourites to be relegated this season. That was before Harry Redknapp was appointed new manager. Now you would expect the bookies to make them favourites to stay up! I know I am. 

Having signed a two-and-a-half year contract the future looks good for QPR. Newly appointed, Redknapp will watch from the stands as his new side take on the might of Manchester United. No doubt he will be taking notes on what players do well, and what they need to work on. 

Redknapp has the knack of taking a club from the bottom to the top, the midas touch so to speak. Look at what he has accomplished at West Ham, Portsmouth and most notably Tottenham. And look at what has happened to those clubs when he left. He has the ability to motivate players, while also getting his team to play attract attacking football which will always win over the fans.

With money to spend in January, QPR fans shouldn’t expect big players or big transfer fees that they were accustom to with Hughes. QPR fans are more likely to see a free transfer or too, as well as a few loans and I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t try to sign Dawson and a few others from Tottenham. Maybe Huddlestone or even Jermain Defoe. I wouldn’t put it passed him to try for the little forward as he has signed him enough times for Tottenham and Portsmouth as well as working with him as a youngster at West Ham.

QPR have a lot of good players and with a squad like they have Harry Redknapp is more than capable of keeping them in the Premiership and who knows in a few years maybe they will be pushing further and further up the table. I would expect though a clause in his contract stipulating that if the England job becomes available he is free to apply for the job.

I have no doubts that Harry can work his magic and get QPR winning and keep them in the Premiership. He has done it time and time before, Southampton being an exception, but that really was a lost cause.

QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes had this to say about the appointment of Redknapp: “Harry was our number one target, the unanimous choice of the Board and we’re delighted we’ve been able to attract him to the club.
“He has a proven track record in the Premier League and has all the characteristics we were looking for to get us out of the current situation we find ourselves in.
“His man-management skills are second to none and we are confident he is the right man to lead us away from the bottom of the table.
“We believe we have a manager with significant experience at the highest level of football, who can come in and immediately help deliver our objectives.”
as for Harry, who normally loves talking to the press, was more conservative on the QPR website. “When I spoke to the Shareholders and they told me about their plans I knew this was too good an opportunity to turn down.

“There’s no doubt there’s a lot of ability in the squad, but for one reason or another things haven’t gone as well as everyone expected since the start of the season.
“I can’t wait to get to work and get the results necessary to kick-start our season.”
