McLeish Has Plans For The Summer

McLeish Has Plans For The Summer

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?

McLeish has been here 8 months now. I just hope Hughes ‘overnight’ team does not show us up tonight.

Cannot see us spending more than 5 mill in the summer and thats to replace out of contract players Heskey Beye & Cuellar. What worries me is if he thinks Hutton was worth 4 mill what is he goiing to buy?.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Please god no don't give this fool a another year please please please I just don't think I could take it, this has been the most boring prem year ever for me and not because of lack of funds or new faces but just the football is total 5H1TE and every time the idiot speaks he *****es me off just all the stupid comments like he says a lot of other teams are trying to be financally stable, eh what other clubs STUPID??? Everton ya but thats notging new everybody else are still spending INCLUDING us like you said mike he talks about the mark hughes having more money than him that just proives he hasn't a clue what he's talking about, another year with this fool is another step closer to relagation, I have said before we won't get him out this season but every fan should do everything they possibly can to make sure we don't have to suffer this cruel and unusual punishment for another long LONG season....

Hopefully, I think that Hughes' new boys aren't all eligible tonight??? It's just another ******** excuse as to why we aren't winning and as rightly pointed out, an incorrect one as you can't just talk rubbish to the press and expect everyone to believe the hype when there is none. Think that I would rather listen to Phil Thomson talking about Liverpool for an hour than Eck for 5 mins about anything at the moment!!!!

I just hope randy has other plans like sacking Mcleish and replaicing him with someone like Lambert, Rodgers, or maybe Mourinho ;)

As stupid as Lerner seems to be, if he gives Mcleish any money to spend, I won't be renewing my season tickets. Absolutely effing disgraceful tonight.
