  1. Redknapp plays Merson card in bid to persuade Parker

    Sean Smith

    So, Duvan Zapata -- the gifted Colombian that West Ham mysteriously pulled out of signing earlier in the summer -- will not be coming to Loftus Road this season despite a full medical and fee agreed. Harry Redknapp said he is "not right" for the t...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Taarabt takes easy route to stay in the top flight

    Sean Smith

    He allegedly took the bus home when subbed at half-time from Craven Cottage in QPR's first season in the Premier League. So Adel Taarabt will at least know how to get home from his new workplace* if his car ever breaks down, as Fulham look set to ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. New signings will put an end to Mackie malaise

    Sean Smith

    For goodness sake, Tony, buy someone quick before the Jamie Mackie fan club implode. The number of articles claiming Jamie as the "right sort" and comments and forum postings lambasting the owners for getting rid of him are rising as quickly as th...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Mackie will be missed but departure was inevitable

    Sean Smith

    Interest from Nottingham Forest has been enough to encourage Jamie Mackie to hand in a transfer request, which the club accepted today. It is possible to speculate that while a fellow Championship club is interested now, a transfer request may ale...

  11. Norwich could be big mistake for Hooper

    Sean Smith

    They say money talks in football, but in the case of the long, drawn out process of Gary Hooper choosing a club, it is difficult to know what exactly it is saying. As Norwich City play "we are the big boys" with Hooper and up their rather insultin...

  12. 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...

  13. 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 ...

  14. Redknapp's convalescence brings McClaren into the box seat

    Sean Smith

    Rather than being concerned about the lack of a striker to replace the inevitable departure (at some point) of Loic Remy, and the more than inevitable injury crisis to befall Bobby Zamora/Andy Johnson (delete as appropriate), QPR fans should be more ...

  15. 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 ...

  16. QPR look to McClaren for mutual benefit

    Sean Smith

    Oh no, not again! The first reaction to signing Steve McClaren to a coaching role at Loftus Road is that Tony Fernandes is at it again: jumping about getting the signature of anyone he recognises off of the telly. McClaren, after all, is another l...
