Queens Park Rangers vs West Ham United, Gameweek 6: Open Thread

Reading between the lines, Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes only has a few matches left in charge of his club if he can’t improve his side’s form in the Premier League. Sitting at the bottom of the table, QPR desperately needs a win today against West Ham United. The R’s brought in 12 players during the summer transfer window and have just two points to show for it.

QPR will be coming up against a West Ham United side who will have Andy Carroll on the bench after returning from injury. While QPR is desperate for a win, the Hammers will not want to walk away from this match without at least picking up a point. Judging by how well West Ham played Sunderland and Fulham recently, you would anticipate that Sam Allardyce’s side has enough quality to win this match. But which QPR will show up? The defensive frail side that has gotten ripped apart this season? Or the adventurous, tough-to-beat side that ended the 2011-12 Premier League season on a high after a series of surprise wins.

The match kicks off at 2:45pm ET in the United States on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com

  1. Must be frustrating to be a QPR supporter having brought all those players in and with nothing so far to show for it.

    And look at West Ham ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool at this point! Good for them! I know Liverpool is little more than a “name” anymore, but still!

  2. Mr Fernandes can’t be so ecstatic about mark Hughes and the geriatrics he’s bought in. I’m sure they’ll win a game one day, probably in the Championship.

  3. Given the good quality of some of the previous performances, it was hard to see where that one came from.
    Hughes got it wrong to start with, Faurlin and Granero were overrun in midfield and Park was not helping.
    The injuries are causing all sorts of problems. If Ferdinand had been fit, Mbia could have started in midfield, which would have made for a much better match up.
    It is going to be a long next few weeks, but I’m confident that team can turn it around.
