Are QPR trying to form the greatest ever veterans team?
Just what are QPR up to? They have clearly been backed by a great deal of money, and yet have seemingly ignored the idea that teams need young fresh players. Instead, they are working on the principle of ‘experience is key’.
At the end of last season they had 32 players in their first team squad. These are the players that will be aged 30 or more at the start of the season on 18th August:
So that’s 20 players over 30 years of age. Presumably they will look for some young talent in the transfer window?
This summer, QPR have signed:
Park Ji Sung
Four of these players are over 30. Jesus.
And then as if to almost take the p*ss, the players they are currently strongly linked with include:
All three are over 30.
Does someone want to sit the owners and Mark Hughes down and have a quiet word with them?
