Queens Park Rangers could still secure a play-off spot in the current campaign if they manage to enjoy a successful second half of the season.
The Hoops currently find themselves seven points off the play-off places, so a couple of key January signings would definitely help their quest for promotion to the Premier League.
Indeed, Steve McClaren may not have splashed the cash since taking over at Loftus Road, but the club have had to pay the wages of three loan signings so far this season. However, not all of the Hoops’ summer moves have paid off form them in the current campaign, as Brighton and Hove Albion’s Tomer Hemed has been rather disappointing.
Sadly, the Israel international has only managed to find the back of the net on three occasions since moving to the English capital, as he has failed to provide the finishing touch in front of goal. He was reduced to substitute appearances towards the end of November and he is currently recovering from hernia surgery.
Some supporters may feel that the forward has had a positive effect on proceedings at times on the field, but the sole reason that McClaren signed him back in the summer months was in the hope that he would produce a consistent flow of goals, which he has hasn’t been able to do so far.
Therefore, the English boss must feel embarrassed about securing the services of the 31-year-old back in the summer transfer window, with an injury and a lack of potency in front of goal ruining his reputation as a prolific striker.
Queens Park Rangers fans – thoughts on Tomer Hemed’s efforts this season?
