Kevin Bond: Faces an uphill task to help Harry Redknapp keep QPR afloat

Supporters showed their frustration following Sunday's 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool, but Bond believes they will continue to give their backing, despite Rangers' increasingly desperate plight.

"The fans were disappointed and frustrated at the Liverpool game, and they were entitled to be," he said.

"But what I've noticed about our fans is that it doesn't need much from us at all for them to get right behind us.

"One attack, one shot on goal and they're cheering us, getting behind us and encouraging us. It's absolutely fantastic.

"We are in a difficult situation, it's a difficult time, but if we're going to get out of it then we're going to do it as a group. All together. The lot of us. As a club. And that certainly includes the supporters."

QPR head into Wednesday night's derby clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge eight points from safety but Bond insisted lessons had been learned from the Liverpool defeat.

"We analysed and reflected on the match straight after the game," he said. "With that in mind, we will put things in place to make sure we give a better account of ourselves tonight.

"We have put the Liverpool game behind us but it's not forgotten about."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
