QPR boss Warnock hints Taarabt could be sold

QPR boss Neil Warnock admits the talent of Adel Taarabt has changed his thinking over such creative players.
But he admits he may be forced to sell the former Tottenham midfielder in the summer.
Warnock knows he might not be able to afford the luxury of such an attacking player if his side reach the Premier League.
He said: “Five years ago I wouldn’t have had a Taarabt in my team because of formations and being solid.
“He’d be gone by now. I don’t think I could tolerate him if we were in the bottom half.
“I don’t think I’d have the patience and I’d have been wrong. He has proved that he can contribute to the team, whereas when I first came here I thought he was an out-and-out individual.”

The questions QPR must answer

Adel Taarabt is fouled and Radoslaw Majewski was sent off: QPR v Nottingham Forest

QPR fans went to Loftus Road at the weekend expecting to learn whether Neil Warnock's team really is set for automatic promotion. A win against Nottingham Forest – who'd won their six previous Championship games and are unbeaten since a 1-0 loss at Leicester in November – and the Rs would surely be mentally celebrating promotion. A loss and the race for the two automatic slots would have been wide open, and Forest would have become favourites for the title. But a 1-1 draw against a side who sat back and soaked up pressure after having a man sent off? It told us next to nothing.
Instead we're still pondering these questions:

1) Are QPR a one-man team?
