After 216 Days, Penrice & Breaker Remain on Gardening Leave

It's now 216 days since Gary Penrice and Tim Breaker were placed on Gardening Leave (along with Ian Holloway) with no explanation as to what THEY had done to be placed on Gardening Leave. Despite Ian Holloway talking about them joining him at Plymouth, as of yesterday, this still had not occurred. Hopefully this soon will change.

216 days And counting...Since Gary Penrice and Tim Breaker were placed on Gardening Leave (with no explanation as to what THEY had done to merit such treatment)
216 Days...31 weeks..Seven months...6,384 hours...From the depth of winter...through spring...Summer...and now Autumn is approaching

On February 6, thhe club issued the following statemnt
"QPR have announced that Ian Holloway has been placed on 'gardening leave.'

Gary Waddock has been appointed as caretaker manager....The move follows speculation about Holloway joining Leicester City as their new manager. The club is keen to avoid any distraction to the playing side and to move forward with the rest of the season as speedily as possible. It has therefore put Ian Holloway and his managerial staff, Gary Penrice and Tim Breacker, on gardening leave with immediate effect....
Gianni Paladini said: "QPR has not sacked Ian, but we are concerned about recent performances and the effect the speculation about Ian joining Leicester City might have on the players.
"I hope we can sort something out with Ian as soon as possible. QPR will always be enormously grateful for the contribution he has made over the past five years, in particular gaining promotion for us in 2004.
"However, it is crucial the team are focussed and able to move forward, which is why we have appointed Gary as Caretaker Manager. I hope the fans will get behind Gary for the home derby against Millwall on Saturday."
