Queens Park Rangers last night announced the appointment of their fifth manager this season, and the 11th since the club's takeover in 2006 by Flavio Briatore, et al. They didn't need to travel far to find the new gaffer — it's Neil Warnock, recently seen coaxing improbable performances out of a dwindling squad at Crystal Palace. The Croydon club will receive £500,000 in compensation for Warnock's departure, and given that the bellicose former Sheffield United boss was the third highest paid manager outside of the Premier League, his departure was all but inevitable once the Eagles were in administration. Palace may now try to coax Steve Coppell back for what would be his fifth spell in charge; Warnock, meanwhile, will try and outlast the short-lived reign of his predecessors.
