Rumours coming out of W12 suggest that Aidy Boothroyd is well-placed to be the next QPR manager. Personally, I think this would be a disastrous appointment. I’m very confused about the direction in which Flavio, Bernie and especially Gianni want to take my club. The managerial merry-go-round is making our club a joke and lets be honest, I can’t see where we are going. It’s a ship without a rudder.
I understand why Dowie was sacked. His brand of football (if you can call it a brand) was shockingly bad and I thought Sousa would improve this – but that never really happened. Only Gigi Di Canio delivered the type of football I want to see down Loftus Road but he had to leave in unfortunate circumstances.
Anyway, those days are gone and now we turn our attentions to Boothroyd. The ball will certainly get more air-time than grass-time if the rumours turn out to be true. Yes, I want success (and Boothroyd delivered this at Watford) but I want to be entertained doing so. I’m not one of those “get me results whatever the style of play” type of supporters. If I’m to pay £600 for a season ticket this season I want to be entertained. If Boothroyd is appointed then I wont get that. Why would I buy into a product/brand that I know wont deliver what I liked about the brand in the first place – even if I am extremely loyal? Aidy Boothroyd will be a BIG BIG mistake. I’ll still love QPR, as the club are bigger than any one individual (player, coach, manager or chairman) but they wont be seeing my £600 if he’s appointed. I’m sure I’m not the only Rangers fan concerned by these rumours.
