Are QPR about to do a Leeds United?

£20.5m for Samba and Remy, plus a wage bill of over £3,600,000 for the pair before they are shipped out in the summer. Quite frankly, it is madness.

The club already had a problem moving on players on absurdly inflated salaries thanks to Mark Hughes' spending splurge, so what did it do, it compounded the problem!

Who will want Wright-Phillips? Or Zamora, who faces an 8 month lay off if Redknapp is to be believed. Or Park? Or Granero? Or £50k per week for Butterfingers Green?

And who will pay £20.5m for Samba and Remy? Sure, Newcastle were prepared to stump up the transfer fee, but they baulked at the wage demands. They have since sourced a cheaper option and will not entertain Remy's wage demands in the summer any more than when desperate for a saviour in February. And who else wants him? There wasn't a queue of clubs was there? That's why he signed for QPR.

As for Samba, he is worth £6m tops in the present market and no English club will pay him £100k per week. Fernandes has been mugged by 'Arry and QPR face a nightmare when relegation is finally confirmed.

'Arry, of course, is propagating the myth that QPR will survive but the failure to beat Norwich was an arrow through the heart, and the thumping at Swansea a hammer blow to the head. The club is on its knees, neck above the chopping block, and the axe is sharpened and raised.

But the big question is what will follow. The gRRRs keep talking about Mittal but he has no sentimental ties to the club and, as a hard nosed businessman, will take a view when relegation strikes. It's better to take a smaller loss now rather than a bigger loss into the future.

And Fernandes? He has burnt his fingers badly. He seemed to believe that if he chucked enough money at a problem, he would solve it. Well, Leeds United found to their cost that if you overstretch yourself, nightmarish years follow; and Leeds, as their fans will confirm, are a far bigger club than QPR.

  7. Are QPR about to do a Leeds?

    What you mean following promotion to the top flight build a team that will strike fear into the hearts of other clubs throughout England and Europe, winning silverware at home and abroad, English champions, creating a worldwide fanbase and a legacy that will echo through generations?

    Nah, more likely to do a West Ham and stay firmly in obscurity.

  12. Funny how it's only YOU who refers to Redknapp as arry and Warnock as old big gob. Trying to come across as a bonafide football writer by using "affectionate" and "humourous" terms. I notice you even used the term "last chance saloon" yesterday too. Cliche ridden tripe that is reminiscent of a 70s dj you are so fond of referring to. Has your head shrink added Stockholm syndrome to the list of your mental illnesses, along with your delusional behaviour? You began by trying to wind Leeds fans up, but you became so obsessed that you can't live without Leeds United. Just like the hostage can't live without the kidnappers after months spent together. That is why it's nigh on impossible for you to stop. I bet you aren't even in Romania,you merely said you were to get out of going to games. You probably live in Beeston overlooking your beloved Elland Road.

  13. World Anti Doping Agency president John Fahey has highlighted the need for more stringent blood testing in English football particularly for the blood boosting drug EPO. The problem is most likely to be more widespread though, as sunday saw the arrest of the pilot of a chartered plane leaving Birmingham airport carrying the west ham team back to London. The pilot has been charged with dope traffiking and bailed to appear before magistrates on wednesday. This follows on from an incident in the away end toilets at Villa park when a west ham fan suffered serious head injuries whilst smoking some shit when th e toilet seat came down on his head.

  14. I hope you pass your English Language GCSE HF...is this "blog" part of your coursework? If you plan to embark on a career in sports journalism I would seriously contemplate another path. However, if this is merely a hobby then please accept my apologies and 'blog away'!. It takes a special kind of person to sit behind a keyboard and computer screen and take pleasure from irritating people. The media named you and your kind "Trolls", which I guess is apt enough, and so long as you are causing no real damage then I guess there's no harm in allowing you to continue. I would urge caution though young man, once the spots subside and the hormones abate, you may regret some of your actions, especially those that are left as evidence of your ineptitude, ie this blog! Your actions now may hinder any kind of normal life you may wish to live in the future. You have been forewarned, make of it as you will

  15. Despite your previous LUFC ramblings, this piece is spot on. QPR is a disaster waiting to happen.
