QPR slumped to a fairly embarrassing League Cup loss yesterday, as they were bullied by League One outfit Blackpool.
In the wake of that defeat, manager Steve McClaren asserted that a few players proved that they are not QPR material, and are unlikely to feature for the club again. The manager fielded a lot of young players, but they struggled to make a mark on the team.
It was a chance for these youngsters to make an impression on McClaren, but failed miserably.
In light of that, these TWO players are surely the worst of the QPR players:
This is a controversial call, as Cousins has featured this season for QPR and has not been their worst performer. But his two yellow cards yesterday in a day where he was one of the seemingly more experienced players must have left McClaren fuming. His performance was not particularly special before the sending off, but his discipline in yesterday’s match may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Sometimes, all it takes is one performance to damage your reputation for good.
It seems harsh to single out a 21-year-old, particularly when so many of his teammates were poor as well, including defender on the other flank Niko Hämäläinen. However, it is clear why McClaren scrambled to buy in Àngel Rangel at the end of the transfer window to play at right back, and to why he has opted to play centre back Alex Baptiste on the right ahead of Kakay.
The youngster struggled to make an incisive impact against Blackpool, while he can certainly develop as a player, for now he does not seem up to scratch.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
