Last week's draw at Turf Moor against Burnley has secured another point closer to Super Hoop dreams. The game (although 0-0) was not without its chances, but both sets of strikers failed to properly test the keepers, most of the match the players seemed to cancel each other out in midfield.
With a few injuries in the squad up front there seems to be a quest to sign another striker, Jamie Mackie is out for the rest of the season but fingers crossed he will return as good as new. Agyemange is still out with calf issues for another couple of months leaving a lot of pressure on Bradley Orr and Helgusson who in their own right are great strikers and I don’t think Hulse is back to full fitness yet.
Its important to have a few different strikers on the team so you can totally switch the game in an instant, so for this reason the rumour mill is rife with possible backup players and people who can\will be invaluable in the premiership.
Wayne Routledge could make a return as he doesn’t seem to be getting much playing time at Newcastle. Souleymane Diamoutene could be wearing the blue and white as a central defender soon, the serie A player wants to play in England and is looking at Loftus Road. He currently plays for Lecce.
Other strikers rumoured to be coming to QPR are Benny Mccarthy of West Ham this has been a long standing rumour and I believe he would be an asset to the team, Ishmael Miller of West Bromich Albion is interested in meeting Mr Warnock but try to remember these rumours are always rife around the January transfer window and papers need to sell so be prepared for some outlandish stories.
Although strengthening the squad is a good idea it is also important not to upset the balance of a great team.
QPR have gelled really well this season with a great combination of flair and solid players bringing in or forcing a new talent into a carefully balanced squad could disrupt what is a great challenge for the Premiership, on the other hand Mr Warnock has proven he knows what he is doing and what he wants to continue performing well.
Sunday sees the hoops take on Coventry at home, kick off is 1:15pm, they currently sit mid-table but are slowly climbing the table.
