One of the biggest concerns for Queens Park Rangers after the summer transfer window closed, was the lack of a seemingly solid centre-back partnership.
The first game of the season against Swansea City saw Michu burst onto the Premier League scene, and was helped along the way by a "disastrous defensive display" from QPR (via BBC).
And that was just the beginning. Conceding 23 goals in their first 12 matches, and only having held one clean sheet was a loud cry for a new CB.
And a cry which Harry seems to have answered, by bringing in somebody whom was right under Hughes' nose.
Clint Hill has started every game under Harry, and has looked accomplished, controlled and a great partner for Ryan Nelsen.
The majority of Rangers fans will tell you that none of them thought Hill was worthy of a starting place at the beginning of the season.
The Player's Player & Supporter's Player of the Year last season (via Daily Mail), had suffered from the glitz and glamor of ex-Champions League and Premier League winners being brought into the team during silly season.
Overlooked and undervalued—even by his own fans who were clamoring for Ricardo Carvalho, or Michael Dawson or various other extreme transfers prospects to be snapped up (via BBC)—Harry Redknapp has by-passed the shiny medals and looked straight to Hill to help out with Rangers' defensive woes.
Nelsen and Hill seem to be the chosen two, and are doing a decent job so far. Ignoring the three goal blitz attack from Manchester United, QPR have conceded three in three.
Still not the watertight defense Harry—or the fans—will be proud of, but it's a start.
Set pieces are still an issue, and there is always a heart in mouth moment when the ball pings around in the penalty box before being hoofed clear. But if Redknapp can work harder with the defense and make them a unit, then this will be essential for QPR's success.
And whether that unit contains Clint Hill remains to be seen. I for one would not be adverse to Dawson. But Hill helped bring QPR up, and keep QPR up, so perhaps it is time to give him the chance, and the plaudits, he deserves.
