Revolving Door

I’m losing track already: Paul Hart has just become the latest manager to go through the revolving door at Queens Park Rangers FC in the out direction. Trouble is, he only went through in the in direction five games ago. The club has now gone through six managers in just over two years – since F1 boss Flavio Briatore became the majority shareholder. Remarkably, QPR are not far away from a play off place: a good run in to this season and their next one could be in the Premiership.

Well, if they arrive there, someone will need to provide a little stability. It is no coincidence that the clubs that have assembled the most Premiership titles (Manchester United and Arsenal) have also had the longest serving managers (Alex Ferguson and Arsène Wenger). Briatore might also ponder just how far an F1 team might get if it was to mess around with its management or driver line-up at the same frequency with which QPR is swapping managers.

They wouldn’t.
