Queens Park Rangers made a big decision in the summer as Mark Warburton was replaced by Michael Beale.

The R’s had undoubtedly progressed since Warburton arrived at the club but the previous campaign ended badly as they eventually finished 11th in the table.

Nevertheless, it was still a bold call in the mind of some to replace the former Brentford chief with Beale, but the early signs are positive, with the Londoners currently in the play-off places.

As for Warburton, he wasted little time in finding another job, although it was perhaps a surprise that he took on a role as first-team coach at West Brom.

The 60-year-old is highly regarded as a coach but he has been the main man for almost a decade until taking up the offer to join David Moyes’ staff.

Of course, it’s hard to judge exactly how Warburton is doing now, with Moyes carrying the responsibility for how the side perform, but it’s fair to say the Hammers have not had the start to the season they would’ve hoped for.

One win from seven games has left the side in the relegation zone going into the international break, although it should be noted that they are doing well in the Europa Conference League as they look to battle on both fronts.

It remains to be seen whether Warburton will make the return to management in the future but he clearly has a passion for the game to jump straight into another job after leaving QPR.

But, right now, he will only be focused on trying to improve the Irons as they look to climb the table.
