Waddock (Officially) Appointed QPR Manager....as Holloway Becomes Plymouth Manager

Good luck to both of them.

QPR have announced Gary Waddock as first team manager following the appointment of Ian Holloway at Plymouth Argyle.
The new role for the former QPR boss means that Waddock, who was named as Caretaker Manager in February, will now be able to officially take up the title of QPR manager.
Ian Holloway was in charge at Loftus Road since February 2001 and oversaw 266 games in his time at QPR, experiencing relegation and then promotion.
When he was placed on gardening leave earlier this year, Waddock stepped up from his position as first team coach to oversee the managerial side and has since instilled a 'no nonsense' work ethic at Harlington.
Waddock first recruited Alan McDonald as a first team coach before restructuring the scouting network and transfer listing and releasing 14 players in a bid to freshen up the squad and bring in his own men.
The new QPR boss said: "I'm delighted that QPR have finally been able to officially announce my position as first team manager.
"Now I'll feel a lot more confident in my role and I'm looking forward to implementing further changes behind the scenes as well as on the pitch.
"I've got a great back room staff here and we've been planning the coming season all summer.
"The work ethic and training methods will be subjected to a complete overhaul and we're looking forward to seeing the results on the pitch."You can see Gary Waddock's first interview as QPR manager on QPR World tomorrow.

BBC Plymouth appoint Holloway as boss
Holloway has managed QPR and Bristol RoversPlymouth have appointed former QPR boss Ian Holloway as their new manager.
The 43-year-old ex-Bristol Rovers manager fills the position left vacant by Tony Pulis, who returned to manage his former club Stoke 12 days ago.
Holloway was suspended by QPR in February this year after rumours linking him with the then vacant manager's position at Leicester.
Hoops chairman Gianni Paladini insisted that he would not sack Holloway, but also said he would not return. http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/p/plymouth_argyle/5125540.stm
