On Sunday, The Sun reported that Ian Holloway was under pressure in the Queens Park Rangers hotseat and that Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett was in the frame to replace him.
The report suggests that if Holloway does not secure a win against struggling Bolton Wanderers next season then his job will be very much under threat, as QPR have made a poor start to the season.
Years of poor financial management has seen Holloway granted a modest budget by modern Championship standards but that does not appear to have stopped the powers that be at Loftus Road seriously considering a change.
Jackett has a great reputation within the game following spells at Millwall, Wolves and Swansea City but it remains to be seen whether he would pack in his job on the South Coast for another crack at the second tier.
The reaction of the QPR fans suggested that they are hoping the report is not true as they can see their side improving under ‘Ollie’ who is a very popular figure among the Rs fans.
Getting rid of Ollie ain’t the answer, new owners needed !! Time and time again the current ones have got it wrong #QPR

The last time there was talk of Ollie going the players won 7 in a row. Let’s hope for the same response because we’ve been playing well this season. Lots of injuries at the back and missing a prolific striker but progress so far #QPR

Totally against changing the manager but we are starting to slowly slide down the table #QPR

Olli is a QPHA hero. #SAVEOLLI.

I remember thinking the story about JFH having to win at Forest was rubbish.
Nothing would surprise me with the clowns running the club.
