Football League - QPR's Performance Manager: JohN Harbin - ONE MORE ROUND, LADS!
- Queens Park Rangers Performance Manager John Harbin knows how to fire up the team - by showing them the words of American boxing legend James J Corbett.
- A poem, One More Round, written by Corbett, sits in Harbin's office at the QPR training ground in Harlington.
- Harbin said: "There's a saying that I have taken to every club I have been to which really comes into play when the odds are stacked against you.
- "It's simple but it's effective. 'One more round.'
- "I've used the saying for the past 20 years. It means that no matter what your situation - be it in sport or life - there's always one more round to fight."
- Queenslander Harbin, a former rugby league coach, has preached the words of Corbett at Oldham Athletic, Crystal Palace and Coventry City.
- He said: "I received a text recently from Zesh Rehman, who is doing very well on loan at Bradford. It said 'One more round.'
- "An hour later, I got a phone call from Jake Cole, who's with Barnet right now, and putting in some impressive displays. The first thing he said to me was, 'One more round, John.'
- "It's a saying that you're never being beaten. It doesn't just apply to sport, it goes much further than that." Football League

Huw Turberville The Telegraph - Reading need home help while Luigi De Canio linked with QPR return
- ".....We have had a few ends of [some very short] eras at Queen's Park Rangers this season.
- I have no desire to become embroiled in the circumstances behind Paulo Sousa's exit from Loftus Road.
But it goes without saying 26 games is no real time to make an impact as manager.
[b]Luigi De Canio did not stay at the club much longer, and I thought he was great.
But wait for it, there have been reports that De Canio could come back next season to work in tandem with Gareth Ainsworth.
