More from QPR manager Harry Redknapp on his side potentially facing action for breaching Financial Fair Play rules.
"I'm sure the owners know what they are doing," says Redknapp (ARE YOU REALLY SURE, MR REDKNAPP?).
"If a team invests and gets relegated then what do you do? You can't just offload all of your players, it is very difficult to do that when they are on Premier League wages and are in the Championship.(EH, NO IT ISN'T THAT DIFFICULT. YOU ACCEPT THE BEST BIDS AND GET ON WITH IT).
"It's a chicken and egg situation. Do you just come up and not spend and go down again, or do you spend a bit of money (HOW MUCH IS 'A little bit of money'?) try to stay up and then be in trouble for Financial Fair Play?"

"Kieran Trippier claims Burnley have proved they do not need to splash the cash to survive in the Premier League.
Fellow new boys, QPR and Leicester, have been shelling out since winning promotion to boost their chances of staying up.
By contrast Burnley have spent just £3.6million and have signed Matt Taylor, Steven Reid and Matt Gilks on frees.
Trippier backs boss Sean Dyche's transfer policy and says the Clarets won promotion last season without spending big.
"Look at last year and all the teams that were spending in the Championship," said the highly-rated full-back. "We got nearly every player on a free transfer, and what free transfers they were.
"It's no different this year. Obviously Leicester are spending £8million or £10million on strikers, but we've got Lucas Jutkiewicz, we've got Marvin Sordell, Ashley Barnes, Sam Vokes, Danny Ings - that's a lot of competition - we've got some strike force.
"It doesn't matter if you're going to spend £20million on a striker or get one on a free. It just doesn't matter.
"As long as we have the togetherness and the family team that we've got, that's better than anything." 08 August 2014 08:53 Started on 'Eli's' forum
