Costacurta, Vialli and, ahem, Martin Allen linked with Queens Park Rangers job

Are you Italian? Do you like spending other people’s money? Do you look good in hoops?

If you answered yes to all of the above then you could be the next manager of QPR. Apparently Bernie and Flavio aren’t too happy with John Gregory and may even consider replacing him, who’d have seen that one coming? So who will fill Gregory’s tiny shoes? Acoording to Sky Sports it will be Alessandro Costacurta:

“Costacurta is close friends with Briatore and would be an obvious choice to be the next manager”

What do you mean you want more evidence than that? It’s a done deal. Well, ok then, Sky Sports again:

“”He told me just one thing – maybe,” Ancelotti told the Italian press when asked to comment on Costacurta going to QPR.”

Believe us now? Thank you, it is pretty conclusive stuff after all. But wait, there’s another name in the frame, according to The Guardian:

“Forgive John Gregory his paranoia. The Queens Park Rangers manager had already had to come to terms with the arrival of ambitious new owners and his team’s poor form, and on Saturday his position was further undermined by the presence of Gianluca Vialli only yards behind him in the stand.”

Gianluca ‘Mr Watford’ Vialli, QPR are truely blessed. And here comes another big name, it’s, it’s…

“Martin Allen, recently freed from his contract with Leicester City, also sat among the directors.”

Oh dear. Maybe Gregory should be due a second chance.
