QPR signed Caulker from Cardiff City this summer for £8 million, with the 23-year-old showing all the promise of a centre-back who could really help the R’s in their bid to stay in the Premier League.
Fast forward several months, however, and that promise is nowhere to be seen – according to many rather frustrated QPR fans.
It was another former Tottenham man in Sandro that got the west London side back into the game at Loftus Road, scoring a second-half goal to reduce Spurs’ lead to 2-1.
But it proved a mere consolation after defensive errors from QPR – Caulker and Rio Ferdinand the main culprits – allowed Harry Kane the opportunity to initially put Tottenham 2-0 up.
If there’s anyone that doesn’t need any extra help to score at the moment, it’s Kane…
Caulker offered no resistance to the in-form 21-year-old, though, and QPR fans were not best pleased with the defender on social media after the game.
Here’s a selection of what they said about the former Tottenham man, following a defeat that leaves QPR further adrift in the relegation zone…
take off Caulker or Rio put Ned at CB Isla at RB Phillips back on the right bring on Hoillet on the left & go for it we need a goal #QPR— mick (@qprmicky) March 7, 2015
I thought Caulker was a great signing pre-season. Turned out to be not as good as I thought he would be. #QPR— Thomas Peters (@T_DogofBath) March 7, 2015
