QPR season 'nothing short of a disaster' says chairman Tony Fernandes
R's without a win all season
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has admitted this season has been “nothing short of a disaster” for the club and pledged to do his utmost to turn things around.
Saturday's 2-2 draw at Wigan saw the west Londoners set an unwanted Barclays Premier League record for the longest winless start to the season.
QPR have gone 16 games without a victory and will be hoping to break their duck when neighbours Fulham come to Loftus Road on Saturday.
Fernandes will be at the match and today told fans to remain upbeat.
He said on Twitter: "Holiday today in malaysia. Went early xmas shopping. But all I want is 3 points. Hehehehe.
"Its been nothing short of a disaster. Its not where we are. But boy we put so much effort into this. Good honest effort.
"Keep your spirits up. Laughing smiling and being positive helps. Won't leave any stone unturned to try fix this. tough as it is. Hopefully santa gives us some early presents."
