Sadly it’s not to go on holiday and resign by email, but he’s talking about a strange thing – transfers!
I wonder if that will go the same way as ‘Gabby isn’t a winger?’
Speaking to the Official Site McLeish said that the club had carried out it’s plans for this transfer window but targets were being tracked for the summer.
In fact he says he has ‘definite plans’ for the summer.
‘We’ve never waivered from our intentions for this window. The chairman still wants to steer towards the financial stability and I think you can tell by the lack of business throughout that’s the case at a lot of other clubs aswell. But we have definite targets and we have definite plans on what we can do.’
As is no longer a strange occurrence in a McLeish interview he curiosly adds.
‘I know the fans get excited about new faces and I am fully aware of that. Building your own team sometimes isn’t an overnighter – for Mark Hughes it might be but not for me.’
Now admittedly I’m not a QPR fan, so I’m happy for people to correct me, but unless I’ve missed something Hughes has added 3 players coming to a total of about £10m and then 3 loans.
Didn’t Eck pay that money alone for N’Zogbia before adding Hutton, Jenas and let’s not forget Given and Stevens into the mix?
So what’s the message, Hughes is a better user of the funds available considering he spent less overall to achieve an addition of 3 players or that Eck isn’t a good judge of the loan market?
Or have I just got out of bed on the wrong side again today?
