The capital outfit have yet to get going this season, and sit bottom of the table as a result.

Just two victories have been secured in 21 fixtures so far, leaving them five points adrift of safety.

Results to this point would suggest that QPR are heading back to the Championship, but Ben Haim is confident the tide can be turned.

The experienced defender has linked up with Harry Redknapp's side on a short-term deal and sees no reason why they cannot complete the Great Escape.

"I don't think any team has done it before," Ben Haim told Sky Sports News HD.

"People say West Brom, but West Brom did it with the same manager for the whole year.

"Here they changed the manager and he has a squad that he didn't pick. He has taken that squad, which is new to him, and if he keeps them in the Premier League, I think that would be a massive achievement - the best ever in the Premier League.

"It is definitely possible, but it's going to be very hard. We are ready for the challenge."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
