A few tough results there. Hopefully your squad can improve in the next month.
The QPR job is one I see the manager let go early after poor results, so hopefully you can turn it around or you might be facing questions from the board
Quite a few tricky games in there (Cardiff and Wolves) so not the best start but certainly one that can be recovered from! Good things to come from QPR if you can!
great story so far. keep it up mate

Matt Phillips returns to Scotland squad after dazzling displays for Queens Park Rangers

Craig Levein gave Phillips his Scotland debut back in 2012 in a 5-1 defeat to the United States of America; the 24-year-old only played once more for the nation prior to his most recent call up.

Queens Park Rangers winger Matt Phillips featured in both of Scotland's European Championship qualifiers this month after returning to the side for the first time since 2012.

Aylesbury-born Phillips played for England at U19 and U20 level but chose to represent Scotland and was eligible to play for them through his Scottish grandparents.

The former Blackpool man was handed his first cap by then manager Craig Levein at the age of 21 in a heavy 5-1 away defeat against the USA, before featuring in Scotland's World Cup qualifier loss against Belgium later that year.

Levein was sacked in late 2012 after picking up just two points from Scotland's first four qualifying matches in Group A. Phillips' hopes of becoming a regular in the Scotland side were largely dented by Levein's sacking with current boss Gordon Strachan overlooking him for over two years.

After a disappointing draw in Georgia last month, Strachan opted to bring Phillips back into the squad for the qualifiers against the Republic of Ireland and Germany.

Phillips had been in good form for Queens Park Rangers last month, featuring in six of their seven competitive games and creating four goals as well as getting on the scoresheet in their cup win over Millwall late in the month. The 24-year-old has an average rating of 7.47 according to statistics site Squawka.

Phillips started in Scotland's 1-0 win over Ireland but never really got into the game and was subbed off for Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser just before the hour mark.

He played the full ninety minutes in the narrow 1-2 loss to Germany at Hampden Park and looked more lively than he did in the first game.

He is still searching for his first goal for Scotland though, and will hope to have the chance to score it by getting a recall next month in the final two qualifiers against Poland and Georgia.
Good seeing one of your guys get called up for the first time in a few years

Surely under pressure now, terrible start... I hope you turn it around!
Unlucky mate, still a chance to turn it around!
Some poor results and I can only wish you the best in turning th ship around!

BREAKING: QPR keeper Rob Green set to leave on free transfer

Sky sources understand that veteran goalkeeper Rob Green is set to leave Queens Park Rangers when his contract at Loftus Road comes to an end in the summer - if not before.

Sources tell us that Danny Murphy had looked to move the 35-year-old ex-England international on in the most recent transfer window due to his high wages but was unsuccessful in finding a club also willing to pay his contract.

Green joined from West Ham United in 2012 and has played over 100 games for The Hoops, but his reported £40k per week wage is thought to be a major problem for Murphy, who is attempting to reorganize the wage structure at the club.

Initially Green was unhappy at the idea of being moved on and told his manager as much, but recent results have left the twelve time England international less than satisfied with life at the club.

Queens Park Rangers currently find themselves in 20th place after nine games and the promotion hopefuls have a lot of work on to turn their season around.

We understand that Green and his agent held talks with Murphy to discuss the club's underachievement but refused to accept an apology from the 38-year-old who only took over at Loftus Road at the start of the season - his first ever job in management.

The latest developments, according to our sources, are that Beşiktaş and Troyes have both been offered the player on a free transfer as Murphy looks to get rid of Green's £40k wages before the end of his contract in June.

But it is understood that Green has rejected the contract offers from both teams after failing to come to an agreement on his wage.

Green is currently in talks with Mexican side Pumas but he is expected to turn down their offer too. Green is out of contract in the summer and QPR are happy to let him leave on a free transfer, but he doesn't seem willing to accept a pay cut.

Murphy is reportedly planning on dropping Green for the foreseeable future in an attempt to make the goalkeeper see that it would be wise to accept an offer from elsewhere, with Alex Smithies expected to come in and replace Green.

Green also has a clause in his contract which means he will automatically receive a one-year extension should he play in thirty league games for his club this season and it is likely that Murphy is keen to avoid this.

*Danny Murphy narrowly lost out to Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett in the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award. Cardiff's Russell Slade completed the lineup in third place.

**Matt Phillips continued to impress and was in consideration for the Player of the Month award but ultimately finished third behind Ryan Mendes of Nottingham Forest and Leeds United's Stuart Dallas. Incidentally Phillips had a higher average rating last month than both players according to Squawka. (Phillips - 7.82, Mendes da Graça - 7.80, Dallas - 7.68)

***Murphy dropped want-away keeper Rob Green to the bench for all five games this month with Alex Smithies replacing him. Green had earlier complained of the underachievement at the club but could be embarrassed now after results picked up without him in the squad.
Not keen on Green! Is Smithies better?
A much needed upturn of form, well played sir ;)
