Queens Park Rangers had a terrible defense in the 2011-12 season, and decided that the best way to rectify this problem was to sign Fabio da Silva on loan from Manchester United and hilariously error-prone goalkeeper Robert Green on a free transfer. Fabio and Green were just two of many hilariously poor QPR players on Saturday, as they got steamrolled 5-0 by Swansea.
Many expected Swansea to struggle after the departures of Brendan Rodgers, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Joe Allen, but those people were apparently unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is their new manager Michael Laudrup. With a gang of new value signings and a similar style of football to his predecessor, Rodgers set up a team on Saturday that put together the most spectacular performance the Swans' fans could have possibly asked for.
Swansea got off to a brilliant start, with Michu scoring a great goal from the edge of the penalty area in the 8th minute. For the rest of the first half, Swansea played well but couldn't finish off their chances. They got a bit more clinical in the second half and took QPR to the woodshed with four goals. Michu added a second in the 53rd minute before Nathan Dyer went on a rampage, scoring two goals of his own.
Scott Sinclair closed the scoring in the 81st minute, assisted by Michu. QPR will move on to ... probably not brighter days, because they're a pretty bad side.
