Another one bites the dust.

Tonight we heard the inevitable news that the club have parted company with Jim Magilton and John Gorman by mutual consent.


Last Monday after the poor performance at Watford there were claims of an apparent headbutt to Akos Buzsaky in a heated dressing room exchange, which has been subsequently denied by both Magilton and Gorman. Wedsnesday last week Magilton was suspended pending an internal investigation on the events. Both John Gorman and Keith Ryan backed the manager and refused to work until Magilton was brought back to the helm. A players meeting with Gorman and Director of football Gianni Paladini was apparently staged, in which the plyers gave a vote of no confidence to Magilton's reign continuing. Steve Gallen and Marc Bircham were put in temporary charge for Monday nights game at West Brom, in which the R's were extremely unlucky to concede a 93rd minute equalizer.

One can only assume that Magilton's position was deemed untenable and the two parties agreed to part ways.

Early indications are that Gareth Southgate is to be the next man under the microscope at Loftus Road, although there are also strong rumours of the two man team of Paul Hart and Mick Harford, a former R's caretaker manager, are also in line.

    I do hope Hart and Harford will do a good job and take the club into the Premiership, but somehow I do not see them doing so. It would be wonderful to be proved wrong, but since Briatore and his friends arrived, I have had significant reservations about most of their manager appointees.

    First test will be to see who is brought into the Club in the January transfer window, assuming Hart and Harford have a say!!
