With Financial Fair Play looming large over Loftus Road, Queens Park Rangers will need to be shrewd heading into the new season.
The clout in the coffers that once enriched the Hoops’ past is no more.
Cash can’t be splashed, wages can’t be overly generous. Youth will need to be the way forward for Steve McClaren’s men.
QPR will need to look at what they are able to do and do that to the best of their abilities.
Without the money to spend on senior players to bolster the ranks, QPR will need to make do with what they have for now.
If they are to add to their first team, it will be a light sprinkling rather than a full-blown transformation.
They will need to be diligent and recruit from within.
The Hoops had a number of players who featured last term who were from their youth set-up, or just finding themselves on the fringes of breaking through.
McLaren is a solid coach and will do well to filter the younger members of the squad through.
He would have agreed to become the new QPR boss with the financial constraints explained to him. He will know the agenda and what he is up against.
If the youthful recruitment and promotion within from the academy is in tandem with the teachings from the former England boss, then QPR could have a youthful, refreshing renaissance ahead.
