"At the moment we are going through a little bit of a hard spell," Ramsey 13:44 - Nov 4 with 1372 viewsShunter

"At the moment we are going through a little bit of a hard spell," Ramsey told BBC Radio London after last nights defeat.

Mr Ramsey, this started last February when Limp Along Harry left sulking because he had used all his transfer budget at the start of last season - we were 17th in the Premier and all the pundits agreed that QPR would stay up if they won their home games especially with Charlie on form. CR took charge and we won only 1 home game for the rest of the season and finished bottom, since then CR has continued to manage us to further depths, where we are now 9 points from relegation and 12 points from automatic promotion.

I prefer stability at the club but heading for relegation is not stability, "give him more time" some say - at what cost ? I repeat what I said before, since the transfer window closed we have ended up with a very strong squad - all we need is a strong manager, we are a third of the way through the season and we have to stop this decline, which has been going on for 9 months, before it is to late. - Oh and Huddersfield have just sacked Chris Powell, they are 4 points below us !

Those home games he needed to win were always going to be hard, we hadn't played anyone at home in the top 10 at that stage. Chris Ramsey will be the one to carry the can but the players are doing nowhere near enough at the moment either

The spell's hardness is caused by our raised expectations after keeping Chaz et al. I get the feeling that Les had got targets in mind but couldn't go after them because our funds are tied up in salaries and potential transfer fees.

This league is a complete bun fight and this spell is just symptomatic of the club not being able to make up its mind what our priorities should be. Consolidate? Obviously. Go for promotion? Great, but all of our problems still remain.

'What do we want? We don't know! When do we want it? Now!'

The problem I have with Ramsey is for a well respected coach that we understood would develope players, making them better and thus we'd see our results improve as the season played out.

I can't think of any players who have developed for the better under CR !
Phillips did for a while last season, when we played him to his strengths. But he's gone backwards this season.
I don't think any of the new players have developed in a positve way. Maybe Hall but he was knocked back by a poor decision to drop him in favour of another loan.
The 2 Watford boys are not living up to expectations set at a Promotion winning team.
Green, Konchesky, Hill are probably not going to improve much more due to age. Maybe Henry too.
But Luongo, Chery, Austin, Polter, Onouha, Perch, Fer, Hoilett are not progressing.
Worse still, for someone who promised to develope and introduce Youth, Smithies, Furlong, Harriman, Kpekawa, Doughty, Petrasso, Manning, Blackwood, Grego-Cox are not playing or threatening to play, other than a couple making the Subs bench if we have a few injuries or expectant fathers ?!

Henry & Tozser still seem to be his preferred CM pairing, despite both being, disappointing in general this season.

Do I expect much to change on Saturday v Preston ? Will we finally see an improved performance ? I strongly doubt it.

That's a valid point.

'Great coach', 'great with the players' etc are often said about Ramsey by his backers and the club.

So the question then is - why is almost every single player at the club performing well below their capabilities?

Hall maybe is exceeding expectations by nailing down a starting place, everyone else is playing beneath their ability.

Ramsey is like Stuart Lancaster the England rugby coach - nice bloke, tries to set professional standards, good youth coach - but ultimately badly lacking when it comes to selection, motivation, tactics and results..

A few players have got better under Ramsey but you can't polish a turd, some of them just don't have it and have been equally shit under a few managers now

Name them. Last season Phillips was put forward as a player that had improved after Ramsey took over how is he playing now

I think JET, Luongo and Hall are all getting better, Austins all round game also improving.

JET is performing pretty much as Brizzle City fans suggested he did last season and would this season. Great when he's good, luxury when not. Is it Ramsey that's told him to launch throw in that only he can get on the end of ?

Luongo, is doing well, but he came with high expectations - Asia Cup player of the tournament. I'll accept he's doing well. Shame he's not being use properly by CR (IMO)

Hall I mentioned as a stand out who we had low expectations of.

Austin, OK, I take your point, but I'd much prefer him to concentrate on scoring goals.

agree with the players bit Dave but weren't Leicester a zillion points behind us and they somehow found a way to win home and away. Nice guy but a manager who can call upon Green, YSY, Phillips, Fer, Sandro and Austin really shouldn't be going through a hard time.

Poll: Remy - can he play in the playoffs - who's opening post is the best?
