|4th Feb 2015: QPR Appoint Les Ferdinand as Director of Football|
at 11:16 22 Aug 2018
Briefly putting aside the questions of whether IH should have been replaced or whether McClaren was the right choice to replace him (no)... I'm wondering whether the spotlight should mainly be on the DoF.
This is what TF said about the appointment (three and a half years ago):
"...clear mandate of assisting us in developing and evolving the footballing department, from the Academy to the First Team."
“This is a new strategy for us. Our recruitment policy at QPR is changing. The recent addition of RYAN MANNING to the Elite Development Squad is a sign of what we will be trying to do here."
“We want to develop a philosophy of buying young, hungry players, who can go on to forge decent careers with us.”
“I’ve had many messages from supporters, of all ages, who aren’t – for one reason or another – satisfied with what’s going on at QPR at the moment, but I can reassure all Rangers fans that we are putting the building blocks in place to move things in the right direction for the future."
“We’ve made a number of mistakes in the transfer market over the last few years and it’s something we want to change. We don’t want to be a buying club – we want to nurture young talent and build a young, ambitious team."
If you were doing his performance appraisal today (3½ years later) would you say he's been a success?
Do we yet have any recognisable (and consistent) system, playing style, hope, etc.
