I posted last week that QPR were, and would remain, cursed under Malaysian owner Tony Fernandes. Well the curse has now struck young Townsend, who spent time on loan with the Hopeless Hoops this season, with the exciting midfield prospect charged with betting offences.
'Arry must be so pleased he didn't join QPR earlier, because there's no way he would have won that tax evasion trial with Fernandes perched on his shoulder like a plague infested rat. In fact, Redknapp will be sweating over any other skeletons he may have hidden in his cupboard and may well decide that discretion is the better part of valour.
I would get out bloody quick if I was 'Arry!
