Ian Holloway set to be announced as new QPR manager on Friday

Standard Sport revealed yesterday that Holloway was on the verge of making a shock return to Loftus Road,will be officially announced tomorrow.

Standard Sport revealed yesterday that Holloway was on the verge of making a shock return to Loftus Road, 10 years after his first spell as manager came to an end.

Rangers have interviewed several candidates this week including former Derby boss Paul Clement and ex MK Dons coach Karl Robinson.

Tim Sherwood was also a possibility, but his financial demands meant he was out of QPR's price range and he has accepted a role as director of football at Swindon instead.

Sherwood and Lee Power are very good friends, its amazing how a multi billion pound industry still runs on dressing room "bantz".

Sherwood was totally over promoted at Spurs where he failed miserably, he got another chance at Villa where he failed again yet he still gets talked up for any number of jobs because he seems quite popular within the game.

Holloway isn't much different, he still largely trades off his success with us and Blackpool. He's failed since then as he hasn't moved on much since then. Its a typically QPR appointment who after years of being a rough and ready but steadily run football club have lost the plot completely, I suppose they are trying to curry favour with the fans by appointing a favourite who presumably isn't after that much money. I don't see this ending well.

No he wasn't/isn't.

Holloway loved it down here and was convinced that the club was on the verge of something big - which we probably were. But he was lied to by the then board, he said some things he shouldn't, and it all ended in tears.

He was still the best manager at Home Park for a long time though.

And he was tapped up by the consortium, let's not forget, in their attempts to destabilise the club thus making their take-over more likely (so they hoped).

Unfortunately instead of Stapleton clearing his desk Holloway did.

What a shambles.

Tapped up?

He was certainly kept informed of developments.

Which you weren't.

Still grates with you doesn't it.

"Tapped up" = "kept informed of developments" in anybody's book, I reckon.

I never wanted to know anything. All I ever wanted was for the nastiness to stop and for the takeover to be carried out in a professional manner instead of the shoddy bullying tactics we saw take place.

What we actually got was a disgusting PR onslaught, skull-duggery, personal vendettas, lies and false promises all leading to a final rushed approach letter you all knew was doomed to fail because once Stapleton & Co had bought the freehold the money you had on the table was woefully short - and you knew it.

You badly bungled everything you attempted and the only thing you achieved was the driving of the wedge between Holloway and the club which led to his departure.

You couldn't have fecked up any worse, really.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

What were your great successes then?

What we actually got was Stapleton and co shown for what they really were. A bunch of self interested, greedy and out of their depth provincial clowns with no interest in the club other than a cash cow to be milked and if the manager leaves so much the better. They were itching to get Paul Sturrock back in the hot seat regardless of him taking the club back 10 years and if it takes the club to the Brink of collapse. Who cares again, I'm alright Jack.

So what we actually got is a shit league 2 club, Ian Newell in the directors box and a ground thats falling to bits.

Yep, that's a fair assessment of Stapleton & Co, and where PAFC is now.
Expectations have sunk so far that even 5 years on the Superfans merely require to have a club to support to be happy. Delirium abound at being top of the 4th division, meanwhile Bournemouth/Swansea/Hull all in the top flight.
"Not for the loikes of us" the thick inbred compliant Janners cry.
That is the Stapleton-Seip legacy, totally out of their depth, brought down by greed and financial incompetence. Local suppliers and staff suffer while that vile scum jet off to Dubai.
Holloway deserved better than this little village club - he was let down and right to leave. The team he built was about to be dismantled and he knew it

Seriously though, the respect & regard felt between posters of a similar mindset on this site is nothing compared to the love and adulation felt among Jimmy and his loyal band of followers.
David Cameron's dalliance the a porcine lover is merely slap n tickle compared to what those sycophantic, inbred freaks n weirdo's get up to behind closed doors

An "I agree" or humorous I <3 u emoticon simply would not cut the mustard to secure a AAA parking spot, sideline a threat to your powerbase, or bed the captains wife for example.
No, you need to think bigger than that, disrupt Friends of Central Park meetings, cozy up to the movers n shakers, devalue the opinions of those who threaten Basement Brent's objectives. Then, and only then can you be classified as a true freak and weirdo
