Bristol City pile on the misery for Steve McClaren and QPR

The ex-England manager’s spell at Loftus Road has got off to a shambolic start and has led to disquiet among supporters“Shambles.” That’s the word QPR fans Simon, 58, and Reg, 70, quickly settle on when asked to describe the current state of their club.
