Can Remy fire QPR up the table

Wednesday, January 16, 2013
I expected QPR to be force in the Premier League this season. Not to be fighting for Champions League, but to put up a Newcastle type battle from last season and finish in the top six. This, obviously, was not the case.

QPR currently sit bottom of the Premier League, 5 points from safety. If they were to be relegated, there is no doubt in my mind Redknapp would get the sack. With the players they have they should really be at least 10 places higher in the standing.

The board, and Harry himself, recognised change was needed, and they have signalled their intent to improve with the signing of French striker Loic Remy. Remy, 26, of Marseille signed for the London club for a record fee after flying over to England to initially sign for Newcastle. In the 68 games he has played for Marseille, he has 27 goals, so he should make a tasty partnership with whoever they decided to play up top beside him.

QPR are also in the market for long term Arsenal target Yann M'Vila, a strong and athletic defensive midfielder. Should they land the Rennes star, I can't see them at bottom of the table for long.
