Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Warburton has been somewhat vocal since the football season was postponed.
The ex-Brentford boss was appointed at QPR last summer. His maiden season has consisted of ups and down, and plenty of goals at either end, but on the whole, QPR fans have been pleased with what they’ve seen so far.
This current pandemic is bad timing for everyone, and QPR especially – they were hitting their peak form last month, capping a six-game unbeaten run with a solid 3-1 win at Preston.
Warburton’s side were putting themselves into play-off contention, but with no football and no training to partake in, the R’s boss has instead been looking for ways to combat coronavirus.

In footballing terms of course, Warburton has appeared on several publications and broadcasts in the past few weeks, sharing his thoughts on how and when the season should be finished.
He’s a firm believer that the season has to conclude, and he’s also stated that he thinks Premier League players should take a 50% pay-cut to help both the NHS and the teams below them.
The 57-year-old posted this message on Twitter earlier today:
So disappointing that certain people prefer to merely highlight problems as opposed to offering potential solutions

Football has been postponed for well over a month now, and we’re no closer to finding out how, or even if it’ll be concluded.
Warburton like most football managers in the EFL is fearing for his side’s safety. In terms of the league table, QPR are pretty safe, but financially, fewer clubs in the Championship will struggle as much as his.
The season will most likely finish at some point this year, and it’s simply a question of ‘hanging on’ for a lot of clubs.
