QPR's most glaring issues are in the center of midfield: the inability to move the ball from defense to attack successfully and consistently' the lack of grit and determination in the tackle; and the pure laziness of some players all need to be addressed.
The questions are endless: The Mirror claims Ji-Sung Park might be dropped, Stephane Mbia has gotten in trouble for his tweeting, Alejandro Faurlin was sent out on loan, and Samba Diakite has disappeared...and don't forget Joey Barton, of course. The only player that seems set to stay for sure is Jermaine Jenas.
But who could partner him in the middle of the park? Or who indeed could be the two players who could take that crucial midfield role should Jenas jump ship as well?
Liam Bridcutt has worked his way onto the transfer list of many managers, a list that includes Harry Redknapp according to the Daily Mirror. And with Brighton having had such a good season, he may be looking for a step up to the Premier League, rather than a step sideways to West London. However if 'Arry works his magic, this central midfielder could be a key signing for the Rs.
Glenn Whelan is a very strong candidate. The change from rugby to football training may be a shock for him, but Whelan is an attacking midfielder with a strong tackle and great vision for a pass.
Stoke City would be hard pushed to let such an important member of their squad leave, having played 40 matches for the side this season. But if the price is right, he could be a very good signing for QPR.
The signing of Scott Parker is a debatable one. On one hand, he is a leader on the pitch, a solid performer, and the Daily Mirror reports Harry Redknapp has already made noises about his signature.
However, he is also embodies QPR's poor transfer policy of the past season: aging, injury prone and potentially past his prime. Scotty Parker could well be Rangers' Kevin Nolan of West Ham United. But he also could be Ranger's Esteban Granero of, well, Queens Park Rangers: hype, pomp, but no follow through.
