Queens Park Rangers earned their promotion spot to this season of the Premier League after having finished in the 4th spot of the English Championship League as they qualified for the play-offs and eventually had to play against Wigan Athletic in the semi-finals. QPR defeated Wigan Athletic and advanced to the finals where they emerged as the victorious side after claiming a 1-0 triumph over Derby County in the finals.
This was enough for QPR to progress from the Championship League and into the Premier League.
Their promotion to the Premier League has not been a memorable one as QPR is located in the bottom spots of the top tier league of England and relegation is edging closer and closer for the team of Chris Ramsey.
The captain of Queens Park Rangers, Joey Barton believes that one of the main reasons of why his squad has been performing so disastrously in comparison to how they did in the Championship League is due to a poor pre-season and not being able to sign good enough players.
Joey Barton said: “The thing that you have to do in between getting promoted and getting back to the Premier League is to have an incredible pre-season and recruit really well.For all the effort in the world, sometimes you come up short.’’
Even though Joey Barton is the captain of QPR, Barton himself is uncertain if his squad will be able to survive for another season in the Premier League as the upcoming opponents of QPR are not going to be east for the team of Chris Ramsey to secure points.
Liverpool, Manchester City, Newcastle United and Leicester City are the remaining opponents of QPR and they have to collect points in order to continue competing in the Premier League for another season.
