Harry Redknapp has no other option but to beat Aston Villa on Saturday. Well, he does, but anything less than three points at home against a struggling side would be unacceptable.
However with a squad containing big talent, and even bigger egos, his first test will be to select a team and formation that will flow and be able to play together.
Redknapp usually favors playing down the wings, and uses the speed of counterattacking the opponent to try and win games (via ESPN).
But which formation at QPR will allow the players to play good football, not leak goals and score them at the other end?
I have selected Rob Green in goal for all of these options, but this is because Julio Cesar is in doubt (via the QPR website). The rest of the squad is currently available (apart from Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora, of course), apart from some match-fitness worries.
So who will Redknapp pick to start? And what formation will they line up in? And can they actually win a game?
I will try and predict the first two questions, but not even Paul the Octopus could answer the last.
Here are three possible formations and starting lineups. Feel free to leave your own suggestions below!
