Mark Hughes: QPR boss convinced his side will soon turn their season around

Rangers have yet to win in this season's Premier League and are 19th in the table with four points from 10 matches ahead of Saturday's trip to Stoke.

That form prompted Hughes to call the squad together in the run-up to the weekend, and his assistant Mark Bowen told podcast Open All Rs the management had "let individuals know in no uncertain terms it's unacceptable".

Asked about the meetings at his pre-match press conference, Hughes said: "I don't think it was any different from normal meetings we have.

"More often than not we discuss as a group every game we play. I think it's helpful, it's something I've always done. To describe it as a crisis meeting is totally off the scale, that wasn't the case.

"We pride ourselves on being able to talk as a group and work things out, and that's what we do. It certainly wasn't a crisis meeting."

Hughes retains the backing of owner Tony Fernandes and is convinced the club's fortunes will change soon.

He said: "If we were playing particularly poorly and not getting results then you would start to look at the situation and think maybe it's not possible to turn it around, but that's not the case."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
