Year FLASHBACK: Bartoli and Pavese in...Neil Out...Buzsaky Signs...League Table...Ex-QPR Birthdays

Flashback one year: Warren Neil Leaves QPR as De Canio Brings in Two coaches of His Own.
(Note: When the two coaches departed QPR last summer, after De Canio left, there was no mention of it on the QPR Official Site; and in their time at QPR, they received very little publicity. Of course in recent years, at QPR, Assistant Managers and coaches have come and gone with some regularity]

- Italian duo Iuri Bartoli and Paolo Pavese have joined the QPR backroom team.
Bartoli, 37, and 50 year-old Pavese met the Rangers first team squad this morning, ahead of Luigi De Canio's first training session in the QPR hot-seat.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, De Canio welcomed his two new coaches to Loftus Road, commenting: "I'm very happy to have them both with me.
- "I've worked with them both before and I know they are both very capable coaches.
"They are very enthusiastic and looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead."
Former Rangers defender Warren Neill, who joined the R's coaching staff midway through the 2006/07 campaign, has followed in Mick Harford's footsteps by leaving the Club. QPR

October 30, 2007: QPR Official Site - EXCLUSIVE: BUZSAKY JOINS
Queens Park Rangers Football Club are delighted to announce the two month loan signing of Hungarian international Akos Buzsaky, who has been handed the coveted No.10 shirt.
A dead-ball specialist with fantastic individual ability, Buzsaky becomes new First Team Coach Luigi De Canio's first signing and is expected to go straight into the R's squad for Saturday's Championship showdown against Hull City at Loftus Road.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, the 25 year-old expressed his delight at the move, commenting: "I am really looking forward to playing here.
"It is a nice honour to be handed the No.10 shirt, but for me it is more important how you play rather than the shirt you wear.
"I haven't played a full match for three weeks, so I am excited at the prospect of playing against Hull City on Saturday."
R's fans know only too well the ability Buzsaky possesses. The Hungarian notched a contender for Championship goal of the season during the 1-1 draw between the two sides in October 2005.
It's an afternoon he recalls with some fondness.
"I remember the game really well," he added. "I opened the scoring with a nice goal, but Rangers equalised and the fans went crazy. As a visiting player, it was like hell!
"The QPR fans seem to be very appreciative. You know if you play well, they will really support you." -- Various Profiles and reports re Buzsaky
