At the end of the day, what Harry Redknapp brings to QPR will never be known, for it will perhaps not quite be revealed in the performances that the London club deliver in the remainder of 2013.
Whether they achieve survival or not, Redknapp has done a remarkable job to even get the club to where they are now. From there, it seems, everything else is a bonus for the former Spurs man—and everything can only be considered a gain for the London club as well.
Redknapp could well be the X-factor that QPR need to survive this year—much like how Adel Taarabt can be their X-factor player on the pitch during the season.
He has the experience and guile to succeed in the Premier League, but has also built himself a squad that is strong enough and deep enough to make a real run at survival.
If he can instill the self-belief and garner momentum among the players, there's no telling how QPR will finish off the 2013 season. Few expected that they'd start the year with 16 winless matches, and there might be plenty more surprised with how they end the year as well.
Either way, it won't be because of a lack of trying from Redknapp.
Can Harry Redknapp's QPR avoid relegation from the EPL this year?
