QPR's record shows growing strength of Championship

With Queens Park Rangers now possessing an unwanted record in the Championship, the league is stronger than ever.

Queens Park Rangers' start to life under manager Ian Holloway has not quite gone as planned.

The London based club are lingering towards the bottom of the Championship and following their loss at the weekend against fellow strugglers Rotherham United, they now possess the longest losing streak in the division.

The length of that losing streak? Just three games. Now this is not to say QPR should be proud of that because they do need to turn things around, but what it does show is just how strong the league really is.

The statement "anyone can beat anyone" has never been more true than it is in 2016 and while that can be seen as a bad thing, it makes the viewing all the more enjoyable for neutrals.

Piecing together a string of successes in the second tier is difficult to say the least, but it seems to have taken on the mentality of American sports. For example, the likelihood of having a string of consecutive victories in basketball or baseball is highly unlikely.

But it is not even like the games are as regular over here.

The simple fact is that no matter how much you prepare, you never know what team is going to show up on the day whether you are talking about Rotherham United, QPR or even Newcastle United.
