These are very different times from when Jim Gregory was running the club. The current owners seem to not be interested in getting their hands dirty and getting this mess sorted out - they seem to be hanging on for a property deal to get some money back. In relation to Tony not being involved that is probably a good thing.
If I owned QPR I would organise a full review of the club to work out what is going wrong. I would look to rebuild and be realistic about the size of our club (similar to Preston) and cut our cloth accordingly (budget 13m and all staff about 110 not the 180 at present) Every role would be looked at to see if it is actualy required and whether the person was performing in that role.
Based on the review I would assess whether we really need an academy. Do we really need an under 23 team or switch to a reserve team. Why is our recruiting not working? Look at Norwich, Preston, Brentford, Southampton etc for clubs that do these things well. Based on being a lower championship or league one side do we need a Dof? How are the manager, DoF and CEO performing? Why do we have a poor culture?
What would you do if you owned QPR?
