Hannah Hussein 4 February at 09:39 So my husband is the ex professional footballer Pascal Chimbonda, he spent most of his professional career playing for the premier league team Tottenham Hotspur, among other Premier league teams. He is also a former French international player and was once voted the best right back in England.
He now has his coaching qualification UEFA licence A, and is coaching up and down the country, one of which being Tottenham his former team.
Along side that he has now teamed up with Pro Football Academy North East. The PfA is the leading private football academy for ages 4-16. The groups are pre academy, foundation phase and youth development phase.
He coaches at three different venues, Newcastle, Sunderland and teeside.
The players can still play with there league teams, this academy is for extra training and coaching to learn the relevant skills they may need to get into a professional academy and hopefully start a career. They will be pushed in the right direction and given all the guidance they need by former football professionals and highly qualified coaches.
With a few days to rest the and coach the players for this one we may be able to name an unchanged side once more. This can only be a good thing as that is the way to build up understandings between the players. I expect another sub 30% possession game relying on solid defensive work and committed counter attacking. As another of the form teams I expect Blackburn to give QPR a severe testing and this could be a pivotal game to indicate just what this side is capable of. As Dack is their main threat rather than a creative midfielder, it will be interesting to see what Cameron's role, if selected, will be for this one. Mowbray is no mug and may well choose choose to sit a little deep to prevent QPR causing any damage on the counter and that could leave us stymied with no real pace to get around the back of defenders. I'd take a 0-0 if offered right now but a battling narrow defeat with the right attitude shown wouldn't be a disaster either.
