  1. Forward thinking still on the list for happy Harry

    Sean Smith

    While Saturday's 1-1 draw away at Huddersfield may on paper look a little disappointing, particularly when you see an enigmatic Watford side tearing up the Championship, it is job done for a happy Harry Redknapp and QPR. Finishing was the problem ...

  2. Redknapp's negativity mars positive QPR performance

    Sean Smith

    A good performance, a hurdle overcome, a hoodoo beaten, but still the story is the players that the club is intent on offloading. "This is the toughest job in football and I've never been at a club where so many people are difficult," QPR manager ...

  3. Service will be key for new boy Austin

    Sean Smith

    It's amazing what a single signing can do to lift the mood at Loftus Road. The arrival of Charlie Austin for an undisclosed fee on Thursday night has been enough to turn a team that is a shambles into a team capable of winning the league. I mea...

  4. Barton as a QPR player a reality as saga reaches endgame

    Sean Smith

    Will Joey Barton line up for QPR against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday? And, if he does, what kind of reception would he get from the fans? The latest news on the Joey Barton saga is that his agent has contacted Roberto Martinez at Everton and s...

  5. Taarabt could be marooned at QPR as revolving door continues

    Sean Smith

    "What is to become of Adel Taarabt? It has been well documented that the Moroccan midfielder has not been training for the Hoops this preseason as he wants out of the club -- hopefully to one of the more prestigious clubs in Europe. Unfortunate...

  6. Perspective needed after Gary Hooper disappointment

    Sean Smith

    The salutary lesson to take from the last 24 hours is not to panic. I would be the first to put my hands up and say that the disappointment got the better of me in my post yesterday, but I stand by a lot of what I said. - Norwich could be big mist...

  7. Remy interest is a red herring -- he's staying

    Sean Smith

    I am finding it increasingly difficult to believe the rumours surrounding Loic Remy's departure from QPR before the start of the season -- mainly because they just don't add up. The bookies seem to think that Newcastle United are the front-runner...

  8. Henry arrival will bring brawn to inventive midfield

    Sean Smith

    It is easy to imagine the negative knee-jerk reaction to the imminent arrival of Karl Henry for a fee of GBP;1 million at Loftus Road. After all, the man is 30-years-old and could be seen as a little too old for the new young and keen policy. But we ...

  9. Samba switch makes for a handy war chest for Harry

    Sean Smith

    It is going to be one of those summers. Hot on the heels of QPR expressing a wish to keep Chris Samba at the club next season, they were handed an offer they couldn't refuse for the defender to return to deepest, darkest Russia and play once more ...

  10. Overweight QPR eye trimmer squad before big start

    Sean Smith

    We are now just six days away from the start of the season - as the players are due to arrive at QPR's training ground in Harlington for what is likely to be a gruelling week of pre-season training before a trip to Devon. Harry Redknapp has alread...

  11. Fire sale continues as Cisse weighs up offers

    Sean Smith

    As a new dawn rises out of the ashes of QPR's Premier League adventure, the fire sale continues apace. Next in focus is Djibril Cisse, the firebrand French striker that seemed to spend more time suspended in the stands than playing for the club. A...

  12. Positive week makes Arsenal game a dress rehearsal for Championsh...

    Sean Smith

    Now that we are relegated, the focus must surely be on the 11 players that Harry Redknapp puts on the pitch against Arsenal -- and those on the bench he gives a game. Despite falling short so many times this season, the vibe coming out of the club...

  13. Barton happy to cast 1st stone at Bosingwa for 'laughing' at rele...

    Sean Smith

    My first reaction to Joey Barton's twitter comments after QPR's 0-0 draw at Reading Sunday, when he was quick to lambast Jose Bosingwa for being seen laughing when walking down the tunnel after relegation was confirmed, is: "Who are you to talk?" ...

  14. Mistakes? Hughes has made more than a few

    Sean Smith

    There have been a lot of excuses coming out of Mark Hughes' mouth about the fact that we have had the worse start ever to a Premier League campaign. "We were unlucky", "we have been hampered by injuries", "their goalkeeper was man of the match". A...

  15. So long Joey, it's been interesting

    Sean Smith

    So, farewell Joey Barton. We looked on in hope on a sunny day in August last year when you were spotted in a taxi rank at King's Cross looking like an extra from a Bronski Beat video. We dared to dream back in those hectic salad days of last s...

  16. Mbia could be just the ticket

    Sean Smith

    It is difficult to gauge the reported one year swap loan deal between Joey Barton and Stephane Mbia, but it is the way of these things that the devil is always in the detail. The arrival of a player as accomplished as Mbia would always welcome. Af...
