QPR boss doesn’t ‘get’ the Sam speculation

Ramsey-557097Queens Park Rangers boss Chris Ramsey is expecting “a blood and thunder London derby” at the weekend and has pledged: “We will be positive and on the front foot and going for the win.”

And he claims he’s astonished by the speculation surrounding his opposite number Sam Allardyce’s job adding:”“Whether it’s true or false I don’t know. I don’t see why there would be speculation about his job – he’s done a very good job at Upton Park.

“Sam will prepare his team as he always does. The speculation about his future will have no impact on the game.”

He claims – not unlike ourselves – that Rangers have “lacked concentration in the final moments.”

He said: That’s the difference. But in general our displays have been good. “The last month of the season – all results will be key. We just want positive results from our games.

“All we care about is getting above that line by the end of May. That’s all that matters.

  1. QPR BOSS : i don’t understand the criticism of big sam he done a wonderful job of trying to get the sack,just the owners are so tight with the purse strings to pay him.

  2. That,s what,s lacking in west hams statement,s,Q P R stated we are going all out for the win. Sam,s lot have,nt.

  3. Amazing how no manager can understand why we might want to let go of Sam.

    Apart from the expected ‘professional respect’ here’s why.

    It’s a major case of CYA. How can anyone seriously say that a manager with relegation performance for half a season is not a candidate for the boot? They can’t because it puts their own neck on the line. If they say anything other than what they are saying it opens them up to suggestions of the sack should they ever find themselves in the same position. All these managers are sticking together trying to set a level of expectation that insulates them as much as possible.

    If somebody can’t see how three league wins in over four months is not worthy of the sack they are being disingenuous to the extreme. But then again, that would never happen in top level football would it?

  4. It’s very simple Chris if we beat you this week next year BFS will have your job,
    Your owner wants our club not yours and if he can’t get it he will take anything we have until he can buy our club which he will never be able to buy once we move,
    Tony you can have BFS but you can’t have WHU
