It’s been 4 months since former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp was dismissed from his post, but now he is being linked to a return in London to manage the struggling QPR.
The R’s have taken 2 points from 7 games this season, and if they lose their next match it will be reminiscent of the scenario which Redknapp came into at Spurs, who had 2 points from 8 games before taking the League by storm.
With QPR seemingly fulfilling the criteria of ex-Spurs man Redknapp, a Premier League club which is easy to travel to geographically, the manager would be available for a position at Loftus Road.
But should the board dismiss Hughes in favour of Redknapp?
Obviously nobody can doubt Redknapp’s managerial ability by taking a team who were bottom of the League to top four challengers, but is he what QPR is looking for?
With there being at least 5 new members being key members in the new QPR squad, the only thing which Hughes needs is time. Cesar, Park, Hoilett, Granero and Nelsen have formed the basis of a new team with Jose Bosingwa and M’Bia, but it will take time for the signings to be integrated to create a strong team.
Obviously his away form is something which is a concern, but their performances themselves aren’t. The play at West Brom and Tottenham were very positive performances, including a draw to Chelsea.
But, it will take tweaking for the QPR defence and hard work to stay in the Premier League, but once they are out the relegation zone it would be a surprise not to see the London club climb up the League.
