Fan petition urging the QPR authorities to bring back to QPR, Former Scout, Mel Johnson

Bring Mel Johnson Back to QPR
Background (Preamble):
- Mel Johnson achieved great success at Queens Park Rangers as Chief Scout. He recommended excellent players to Ian Holloway that not only delivered on the field, but later produced revenue that helped to keep the club afloat as the club fought the possibility of extinction.
- Mel was responsible for recommending current captain Martin Rowlands, who has been a superb servant to the club, as well as the likes of Danny Shittu and Lee Cook - two massive favourites among the fans. He also helped to bring in players such as Stephen Kelly and Lee Camp at crucial times in the club's climb back to the Championship.
- Mel had a great time at QPR and only left because Spurs recognised his capabalities and made him an offer he could not turn down. Spurs have now released him, essentially throwing away four-and-a-half years of worldwide scouting experience he has gained while working there. That is an astonishing bank of knowledge that QPR could now tap into.
- Indeed, Mel's effect is being felt at Loftus Road even now - he spotted Adel Taraabt while playing Under 17 football and recommended him to Spurs. He describes Adel as a classic QPR player - a footballer in the Marsh/Bowles tradition who QPR fans really appreciate.
- We know that Mel has done brilliantly for us in the past and he is now available with a wealth of knowledge and experience that could really help QPR's quest for Premier League football. He won't be on the market long. Let's get him now before someone else steps in. Petition Preamble

"We, the undersigned, call for Jim Magilton, John Gorman, Gianni Paladini, Amit Bhatia and Flavio Briatore to strongly consider re-employing Mel Johnson as a scout at Queens Park Rangers Football Club. -- Click Here To Sign The Petition
