Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson claims QPR's problems can be traced back to a summer of eleven players arriving at Loftus Road. Mark Hughes finally paid the price on Friday morning for a winless start to the season by being sacked by QPR.
Speaking barely 90 minutes before the announcement was made, Ferguson said: "If you analyse things a little bit more closely it's probably a lesson to everyone that changing a team and bringing 11 new players in to the Premier League is not easy," said Ferguson.
"But I am surprised they've only got four points.
"I didn't expect them to immediately set a blazing trail or be up at the top of the league or anything like that with 11 new players to bed in, but they've only four points and of course that creates its own headlines."
