I know people were blasted for comparing Ramsey to Connor based on skin colour., but the similarities don't end there. Alf has achieved one win which is something Connor never managed, but other than that the following from Connor's wikipedia page is uncanny:
In February 2012, he was given the role of manager by Wolves until the end of the current season, after the sacking of Mick McCarthy. Chief executive Jez Moxey confirmed that the position was offered to one other candidate, widely considered by the media to be Alan Curbishley, who refused the position before Connor was appointed. This was despite the club's chief executive Jez Moxey stating that the job would be given to an experienced manager.
Connor took charge with Wolves in 18th place, one of five teams at the foot of the table looking to avoid the three relegation places. His first game in charge brought a 2–2 draw at Newcastle United on 25 February 2012. However, his side then suffered seven consecutive defeats which left them rooted to the bottom of the table and were relegated on 22 April after a 0–2 defeat to Manchester City. In his thirteen games, he failed to achieve any wins and gained only four points from a possible 39. The team finished bottom of the table with one of the lowest points tallies in their history (25).

Lost 0-1 v Boro to a Bamford goal and now 5 points off the auto spots, closer in fact to 7th.
Another Zamora moment coming for them?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we quite recently outplay them despite their manager having in depth knowledge of all things QPR?
Why the fear?

Some positive noises....
Smudge1962 The FA have based evidence on pure presumption because QPR inflated the fee on their website.

Smudge1962 On that basis the FL will have to go ahead with the play-offs so where does that leave them?

Smudge1962 As it is the longer this goes on the better. QPR have 14 days to appeal sentencing and will wait until the very last day

Smudge1962 Addressing false paperwork. What false paperwork? The FA just assumed QPR submitted false paperwork because they inflated the fee

Smudge1962 Without trying to defend the FA you can't blame them for investigating QPR when it appears £2.9m is unaccounted for

Smudge1962 This whole case revolved around a £600,000 fee and QPR boasting that the player cost £3.5m.

Smudge1962 Inflating a transfer fee is one thing but not when the player has third party representation and the FA are monitoring the deal

Smudge1962 However don't be under any illusions, QPR brought these problems on themselves. It's the supporters I feel sorry for
11 minutes ago
Smudge1962 The big debate now is how the FA save face. The FL will be forced to go ahead with the play-offs pending any appeal if any
12 minutes ago
Smudge1962 The agent was FIFA licensed but not registered with the FA. It's a minor crime
14 minutes ago
Smudge1962 QPR did not, I repeat did not, use an unlicensed agent in the deal. Perhaps Palios should refrain from comparing QPR with Luton
15 minutes ago
Smudge1962 As promised. The FL and FA are in pieces. QPR will not be demoted into the play-offs and the former CEO, Mark Palios, is an idiot

Reassuring? From the much loved Daily Mail:
This isn't Tevez II, insists QPR manager Warnock
By Sami Mokbel Last updated at 1:21 AM on 11th March 2011
Neil Warnock has claimed the FA charges threatening to derail Queens Park Rangers' promotion push bear no resemblance to the Carlos Tevez affair.
The QPR manager told Sportsmail: 'I've spoken to our legal advisers and they have been very reassuring. From what they have told me, this is nothing like the Tevez situation.'
The Championship leaders could be docked points if found guilty of breaking rules relating to third-party ownership and agents over their £3.4million signing of Alejandro Faurlin in 2009.
Rangers' legal team were preparing their defence yesterday and were confident of proving the club have not been involved in any deliberate wrongdoing.
Sources in Argentina were last night claiming Faurlin’s former club, Instituto de Cordoba, were paid nothing when QPR signed the player — despite Rangers announcing he had arrived on a ‘three-year deal worth £3.5m’.
QPR say they never suggested that sum was paid in a transfer fee. It is thought QPR will argue Faurlin had reached the end of his contract at Instituto and was available on a free transfer.
The FA allege Faurlin’s registration was in fact owned by an Argentinian company.
Warnock called his squad in for a meeting ahead of training yesterday to ensure the furore does not affect heir hopes of promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
Argentinian midfielder Faurlin, 24, showed enough in training to convince Warnock he is in the right frame of mind to start against Crystal Palace tomorrow.
Despite the FA charges, the irony of the situation is surely not lost on the veteran manager. Warnock criticised Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore after West Ham dodged a points penalty in 2007 for a similar offence.
The Hammers were instead fined £5.5m after being found guilty of acting improperly and withholding vital documents relating to the ownership of Tevez and Javier Mascherano.
Tevez's goals at the back end of the 2006-07 season were central to West Ham's survival and Warnock argued that his Sheffield United team were relegated as a result.
Faurlin has started 30 of Rangers' 36 Championship games this season, playing a key role in opening a sevenpoint gap at the top.
Warnock's insistence that the charges facing Rangers are nothing like the Tevez case show the Yorkshireman is anxious to avoid any accusation of hypocrisy.
Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers, whose side are Rangers' closest Championship rivals, said: 'It will be interesting to see what the consequence will be here and what Neil's response is as well. You only have to look at the Tevez scenario, where West Ham did not lose any points.
'I'd be surprised if Rangers are docked points. I'm sure the authorities will act before the end of the season.
