Amos, Richards and Clarke-Salter
at 08:01 14 Aug 2022

If I understand Beale correctly, Amos, Richards and Clarke-Salter are out until after the international break. I make that 8 games. That's a long time with only Dozzell, Johansen and Field available in central midfield (plus Thomas when he's back but, you know...).

This is a big concern but I guess we knew our thin squad would struggle to provide cover to the starting 11 unless everyone was fit.

The only real surprise is Bettache is left behind, though he wasn't in the Crawley match day squad so perhaps injured. Some of the 23s don't make it either, including Armstrong.

Head coach, 3 year contract. Good luck to him, (apart from when they play us), I have a feeling he'll need it.

Two 10s
at 07:23 22 Jun 2022

I really like the idea Beale might set us up to play two 10s behind a striker. This will build on Warburton's work and employ two of our best players in their favoured positions. It's a formation Beale likes, one we enjoyed under Warburton and you could say it's become part of our new 'identity'.

I don't think we have enough quality to cover those positions though. Thomas is the obvious one but has yet to convince he'll make it at this level. Adomah's strength is playing wide and he'll be mainly used as an impact sub. Potentials such as Shodipo, Bettache and Duke-McKenna are young players Beale will need to assess so there's a question mark as to whether they get into in the squad.

I'm hoping Beale and Belk have one or two good quality players in their sights who can provide cover for Willock and Chair.

We don't need to sell our best players
at 13:42 21 Jun 2022

So says Beale: QPR don’t need to sell star players - https://www.westlondonsport.com/qpr/beale-qpr-dont-need-to-sell-star-players

It's not only excellent news that we can retain Dieng, Dickie, Chair and Willock but also the statement suggests our finances are in better shape than most of us have thought.

It's two years since the Eze transfer fee and we've received almost no income in transfer fees since then. It really must mean we're only targetting frees and loans.

There was something very likable about Moses as a person, but I was never too keen on him as a player. It'll be interesting to see if we go for one or two new signings at RB. I guess MB will want to assess Kakay first.

Manager v Head Coach
at 15:40 18 Jun 2022

In thinking about what the differences might be between having a head coach and a manager might make, I found this article interesting : https://coachingxtra.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-manager-and-head-coach

With the signing of JCS I think we've already seen Beale will have a big say in transfers. But what areas will Beale not have much of a say in? And how much might that increase Ferdinand's influence?

And, as has been mentioned elsewhere, will there be any effect on Chris Ramsey's role as technical director of football?

The article suggests having a head coach gives more player power than having a manager. Why that would be the case?

It would be fascinating to see a club organisational organogram.

Training Ground Update

Good to see the training ground is progressing. The pitches are ready to be used this season but the building and facilities not until next season. The Harlington training ground is only 2 miles away so I guess they'll bus the to and from the pitches.

They even say the finished facility will be Premiership standard!

Given a further year on his contract. I'm a little surprised given his injury record but it may reflect the fact club has little in the way of spare cash for new players.

Players Out
at 16:30 13 May 2022

So far we've said goodbye to Lee Wallace, Charlie Austin, Dom Ball, Dillon Barnes, David Marshall, Kieren Westwood, and loanees Sam McCallum, Andre Gray, Dion Sanderson and Jeff Hendrick.

We're waiting for news on the negotiations with YoannBarbet, Moses Odubajo, Albert Adomah, Olamide Shodipo and Charlie Owens.

I expect there'll soon be the usual slew of 23s being released, and it'll be interesting to see whether the likes of Stephen Duke-McKenna, Aaron Drewe, Trent Mahorn and Sinclair Armstrong, all of whom are at the end of their contracts, are retained.

But who will be sold? Rob Dickie, Illias Chair, Chris Willock and Seny Dieng are the likeliest candidates. I see the offish has had 'Chrissy Cleans Up' as the headline for quite a while. Trying to put him in the shop window perhaps?
