"...Warnock, who has more than 30 years' experience in management, said of a system in which clubs had only two opportunities to change their manager in a year: "It would be ideal for managers if they could only lose their job at a certain time of the year. Managers should be like players – you should be able to change them in January if that's what is wanted, or the end of the season..."

R's number one Paddy Kenny is set for a prolonged period on the sidelines owing to injury.

The former Sheffield United custodian injured his gluteus maximus at The Britannia Stadium last weekend and in the words of Neil Warnock is set to be 'missing for a while.'

With Brian Murphy also injured owing to a calf complaint, Radek Cerny started at Carrow Road, but Warnock was less than pleased with the Premier League's decision not to allow him to bring in a keeper on an emergency loan.

"Paddy is going to be out for a while," he told www.qprt.co.uk

"He injured his side at Stoke, as did Murphy - they're both going to be out for a while.

"We asked the Premier League for permission for an emergency loan, but they took two days to tell us no.

"That really disappoints me."

Cerny - according to Warnock - was 'faultless' in the R's 2-0 defeat at Norwich, and the R's gaffer added: "Raddy has a long-standing injury himself, which is why he's only played a couple of games for the Reserves over the last 12 months.

"I'm really disappointed with the Premier League to be honest." QPR

Neil Warnock lambasted the R's defending, as QPR slipped to a narrow 2-1 defeat at Norwich City.

The R's gaffer was critical of both goals Rangers conceded, as Luke Young's second goal in as many matches proved scant consolation at Carrow Road.

Warnock told www.qpr.co.uk: "I'm disappointed we haven't come away with all three points, let alone one.

"We should've won the game but we've come away getting mugged.

"Of course the goals we conceded really disappoint me, but I can't be too critical with the overall performance.

"I thought at 1-1 we were the only side that was going to go on and win the game, but we didn't defend properly and it's cost us."

Warnock was ultra-critical of the two Norwich goals, adding "The comedy bam-box for the first goal and then our failure to clear our lines five or six times for their second goal is soul destroying.

"I'm very disappointed and I've told the lads how I feel.

"Norwich got out of prison today." QPR

Substitute Grant Holt scores winning goal to send Norwich above QPR

Press Association at Carrow Road

Neil Warnock has hit out at the Premier League's "scandalous" decision to prevent QPR from signing a keeper on an emergency loan after seeing Grant Holt's goal give Norwich victory over his side.

With his first choice Paddy Kenny out for up to two months after picking up a side strain, and backup keeper Brian Murphy also injured, Warnock had to play third-choice Radek Cerny.

Warnock revealed he approached the Premier League for permission to sign an emergency keeper, but had his appeal rejected, forcing QPR to recall 20-year-old Elvijs Putnins from a loan spell with non-league Boreham Wood.

"They told us we had to bring back a lad from Boreham Wood who has never played in the reserves. If not, we had to play a 17-year-old who has not played a reserve game yet, which I think is scandalous not to get any help. "

Holt came off the bench to bundle home the winning goal in the 73rd minute, Norwich having deservedly taken the lead when their captain, Russell Martin, reacted quickest during a melee in the six-yard box. Shaun Wright-Phillips had a strong call for a penalty turned down seconds later as the visitors searched for an equaliser, which came in the 59th minute when Luke Young struck his second goal in two games.

The Norwich manager, Paul Lambert, was delighted with the attitude his side showed. "I have trust when we go on the field of play that they are going to perform and I've done that for the past two years," he said. "I have trusted them and they have just been a brilliant, brilliant group to work with."

The QPR striker Jay Bothroyd said he will report a Twitter user who allegedly called him a "useless lazy nigger" after the game. The message came from the account of a user named Karl Martin, using the Twitter handle KarlMartin16, though Martin later said that the message was sent by friends without his knowledge. Bothroyd tweeted: "Thanks my tweeps, I will report this incident. Narrow minded people can't get away with that sort of behaviour". Observer

West London Sport - Holt’s winner sees off QPR

Grant Holt’s 73rd-minute goal gave Norwich victory at Carrow Road.

The striker bundled home fellow substitute Wes Hoolahan’s right-wing cross only three minutes after the pair were brought on.

Norwich had taken the lead when Anton Ferdinand’s miscued clearance from Andrew Surman’s corner fell to Russell Martin, who smashed home.

Ferdinand had earlier been rescued by Radek Cerny after the defender’s hesitation gave Steve Morison a sight of goal.

Third-choice keeper Cerny played because Paddy Kenny, whose deputy Brian Murphy is sidelined, was himself ruled out with a muscle problem.

Rangers were denied permission by the Premier League to sign a keeper on an emergency loan deal ahead of the game after learning that Kenny could be out for several weeks.

Without Kenny and captain Joey Barton, who was suspended, the R’s battled spiritedly and equalised just after the hour mark, when Luke Young netted from the rebound after Jamie Mackie’s shot hit the post.

But seconds after having a header blocked on the line by Shaun Derry, Holt was set up by Hoolahan for the winner.

“I feel like we should have won that game,” said R’s boss Neil Warnock.

“At half-time I said to the players I’d be disappointed if we drew, never mind lost. I feel robbed.

“But then when you defend like we did, you probably don’t deserve to win. For the second goal we had chances to clear the ball.

“The disappointing thing for me is that Norwich didn’t have to work for the goals – they were given them.” West London Sport

QPR's Ice Cold Treatment!

- QPR owner Tony Fernandes has put his money where his mouth is during his three-month reign. But the latest example of his commitment to improvement might not necessarily be one welcomed by the players.-
A demountable ice bath, housed in a cabin the size of a portaloo and used to aid fast recovery of over-worked muscles after exercise, is the newest addition at the Harlington training ground.
- Yet it is a luxurious facility compared to the[b] home-made ice baths Rangers used in pre-season. During the penny-pinching Briatore-Ecclestone regime's reign, household dustbins were loaded with ice and up to three players at a time would stand nose-to-nose in their underpants while shivering their way to recovery."
