The Lowdown: Early target
The Hoops have been on the hunt for Michael Beale’s long-term successor since the end of November, with Critchley emerging as an early contender.
The 44-year-old has been out of work since October, when he was Steven Gerrard’s assistant at Aston Villa. The former Blackpool boss now looks set for a swift return to the Championship, though, with a move to Loftus Road seemingly close.
The Latest: Critchley set to join
Reporter Crook, who is currently in Qatar covering the World Cup, took to Twitter in the last 24 hours to share a significant QPR manager update.
He simply revealed that Critchley ‘is set’ to take the vacant managerial position at QPR.
Happy with Critchley?
Not so sure!
The Verdict: Good move?
Critchley likes to play a 4-4-2 formation and enjoyed success with Blackpool, guiding them to promotion to the Championship during the 2020/21 season.
Therefore, it does seem to be a solid appointment, and R’s supporters will be hoping he can continue the club’s push for promotion over the coming months.
