Warnock makes frank admission

The trio were promoted from the npower Championship last season,

with Warnock’s R’s winning the title ahead of Norwich. Swansea have

impressed in the top flight since their promotion via the play-offs

and face QPR on Tuesday afternoon, while Norwich have rarely looked

troubled. Rangers have not done quite so well, but Warnock said: “I

think you have to say Norwich and Swansea have adapted better

because of their superior positions in the league. “But I look

overall and it has been a massive change around. “Obviously

[chairman Tony Fernandes] did not come until the last second and we

had already bought some players in. “The whole ball game changed

when the new owners came in and we managed to get some new faces

in. Not enough (faces), and we missed out on a couple right on

deadline so we know we need to, as quickly as possible, get certain

players in. “We were hoping we could get away with certain

positions but it is not happened like that. We have been punished.”
