Exclusive - Kevin Gallen: Harry Redknapp will struggle to remove Queens Park Rangers' top earners
The Rs have spent huge transfer fees and agreed large contracts over the last two transfer windows, including £12.5million for defender Christopher Samba.
And, following a 2-0 home defeat to Stoke, the west London side look set to play their football in the Championship next season.
“QPR spent far too much on wages,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast show. “Where are they going to go now? Who is going to take them after such a poor season?
“Both Harry Redknapp and Tony Fernandes face a tough job. Why would you leave the club if you’re earning £60,000-a-week and you’re only going to get £30,000-a-week elsewhere?
“The transfer policy, especially at the start of the season, has been poor. I don’t blame Tony Fernandes, he’s new to football, and if someone comes up to him and says you can sign Julio Cesar, of course he’s going to say yes.
"But if you leave Inter Milan and come to QPR what reason are you coming for?”
From a few days ago: Edinburgh's New Head, David Davies brief references to how QPR Player Signing Decision were made when he was there
But, while conscious of national needs, Davies is confident that he will not be pushed down a road he does not believe to be in the best interests of his new club.
He said: “The reality of any decision in any club is that they are almost always consensual ones. There are very few occasions in my experience of half a dozen or so professional clubs where the decisions are one person’s decision.
“If I draw on soccer and QPR, we rarely made a decision on a player where there wasn’t wider discussion. So the process here is no different to anywhere else.
“I had a chairman there very interested and wanting to be involved in it, and board directors equally interested. I understand that, here, some characters wear an SRU hat but the reality is that they are thinking about Edinburgh. We are a separate brand and I’ve seen nothing to date that would indicate that their interests are anything other than Edinburgh interests.
“I may have had differing views with the governing body [RFU] when I was at Wasps, but I worked with them, and I don’t see the relationship here as being fundamentally different. Yes, I might have to deal directly with Mark and Scott, but that’s no different in many respects to dealing with Chris Wright [Wasps owner], Ian McGeechan and Warren Gatland, where there was a consensual approach...."

Two football coaches from English Premier League side Queens Park Rangers are in the country to help the county’s preparations ahead of f 2014 Brazil Street Children World Cup (SCWC).

Yangwe said the program is being sponsored by English Premier League and implemented by QPR and this is the first time for SCWS to organise the seminar on coaching and leadership in the African continent.
“The two coaches from QPR are in the country with one official from the SCWC organising committee. ,The seminar starts on today and ends on Friday at the CCM Kirumba Stadium, this is a pilot project and once it proves success, SCWS and the English Premier League (EPL)will sponsor it for a long spells” he said .
