Over the course of the past 5 years, The Rangers went from a yo-yo Premier League club to a team struggling to get past the half-table mark.
To be fair, they’ve settled into a more-or-less stable role among Championship teams, though that’s not strictly good news. Most Queens Park Rangers betting predictions place them around the same table position they’ve enjoyed for the past few seasons – between 13th and 16th.
That said, 2019/20 was a relatively successful year, the 13th placement being their best since 2015/16. However, their lineup has been hit hard in the summer transfer period. As such, most bookmakers aren’t too optimistic about their prospects going into the 2020/21 Championship season.
With odds of 3.00 for a Top Half Finish, there aren’t many great outright bets to take.
QPR Key Players
Mark Warburton was the man behind most of the smart decisions that brought about QPR’s 6-position improvement, so it’s not a surprise that he’ll be staying on for another season.
Unfortunately, though, the wealth of Premier League talent he brought in last year won’t be sticking around. For instance, Eberechi Eze’s market value has gone up threefold over the past 12 months, landing him a contract with Crystal Palace.
As a replacement, it seems Warburton will be opting for a more traditional formation as opposed to the midfield-heavy tactics he employed last season. Ilias Chair will be taking over Eze’s role of offensive midfielder, but he’ll be joined by several forwards like Macauley Bonne and Lyndon Dykes.
Bright Osayi-Samuel also earned a lot of praise on the right win, though Albert Adomah of Nottingham Forest was also brought in with a free transfer.
With no real historic rivalries on their records, a survey was conducted among the QPR supporters on the matter. It revealed that most of them consider the likes of Chelsea, Fulham and Brentford, all positioned nearby in West London, as the club’s biggest rivals, with Watford and Luton Town close behind.
However, given their successes since Roman Abramovich took the reins in 2004, Chelsea won’t be bothered too much with a rivalry with QPR.
In 1886, clubs called St Jude’s and Christchurch Rangers, both formed a few years earlier, merged into a single entity named Queen’s Park Rangers, due to most players coming from the Queen’s Park area of West London. They turned professional in 1889 and played their home games in no less than 20 different venues, before eventually settling down at Loftus road in 1917.
They finally broke from the bonds of local leagues in 1920, when the Football League formed its Third Division where they spent almost all the seasons between the two World Wars. In 1948 they reached the Second Division for the first time and floated between it and the Third until 1968/69, when they had their first taste of top-tier football. Though they went back down immediately for further four years, they spent most of their time between then and the turn of the century in the top division, finally getting relegated for the long term in 1996. In the last 23 years, they’ve been in the Premier Legue for three campaigns so far, between 2011 and 2013 and in 2014/15.
The only major trophy on their shelves is the 1967 League Cup, though they’ve been the runners-up of the competition in 1986, as well as the 1982 FA Cup and in the First Division (top tier) in 1976, which remains their best ever league result to this day.
