Just wondered what people's thoughts were on getting him back on loan - obviously wages a problem but if they weren't would he be welcomed back?
Personally I could see his class and can't think of many better tried and tested strikers that might/would be available. I'd give him another season, when he was on it I thought he was excellent although obviously tailed off at the end
I did see a tweet where he said he would love to come back again but probably lip service.

On Sky Sports this morning.
30 minutes - all his PL goals (149 of them).
He scored 60+ for Rangers - it was lovely to see them all consecutively - reminded me of great times.
Oh and not one of them was a penalty.
Far as I'm concerned he'll always be a legend and my favourite QPR player.

Not seen enough, just wondering if this was the first time we had played against 3 at the back this season. Potentially one of the reasons we struggled so badly?

Calling it now.
He is one of those players that always seems to have a fantastic game against us. Doesn't matter who he's playing for.
Who else is there that fits this bill?

Brilliant start, Mackie should have scored. Manning stroking it about, winning the ball back' looked imperious. Then we stopped. Blackburn dropped off and let us have the ball. We couldn't string passes together or unlock the door. Everything went across the back left to right and back again without any real intention. When we did try and force it the passing was inaccurate, Luongo the main culprit.
Their forward from Southamton was very good, big, strong, quick intelligent. Danny Graham looked like he'd eaten Danny Graham!
Second half was much the same. Decisions in the final third really let us down that and the final ball/ cross. Smith came on and won everything, Washington wasn't really anticipating things very well.
The 'goal' that wasn't. Looked well over the line from where I was. Couldn't believe it wasn't given. Not sure how the Lino couldn't see. Washington took it well to be fair.
We needed to get the ball a cross as Smith was winning everything.
We all knew as soon as they broke forward it was gonna be a goal. As soon as the goal wasn't given I could have written the script.
Overall they did okay. Not enough in the final third. Certainly deserved more. I think Luongo and Mackie could have done a lot better. I would have taken Perch off put Goss on and moved Him forward into the midfield.

First time this season as live in Yorkshire. First half was unbelievably bad, if they sat off Shelvey like they did here with Mooy then it's no wonder we lost by 6 on Tuesday. Mooy was different class, at the centre of everything, all the time in the world, passed with purpose and invention, never looked like he was rushed. Henry was diabolical, just watched as everything was played around him. We were utterly dominated in the first half. Aimless balls up to Washington which just kept coming back. Cousins didn't do anything on the right and Chery was completely anonymous.
Changed to 4-4-1-1 after the break , Borysiuk in the middle did more in 2 mins than Henry all first half, he made a difference. Conceded the second to real schoolboy football. Shodipo who was lively but completely ineffective just watched his full back run fully 60 yards and put in a perfect cross to head in, really really poor not sure if it shows inexperience or just not very good. Right decision to bring Shodipo off and Sylla made a difference as did going full on 4-4-2 but of course it meant Cousins and Chery were wide midfielders which meant still narrow. Chery was very poor and Onohua is never a full back and really showed.
(Should have read lively not lovely!!)

On about 0:54 - He is a unit, don't recognise him (don't think it is JET but could be wrong) - anybody know?
P.S. - Caulker looks to be in good shape at least - thought he would have piled a bit on not playing.

Am missing the game tonight and don't have Sky Sports to record it. Anyone know of anyway I can watch it say from 10pm if I manage to not find out the score??

As usual it's hard to predict what the actual team will be. I think we've got to go all or bust so for me it should be:
McCarthy, Hill, Isla, Henry, Hoillet, Krancjar, Zarate

|Burnley mates letter to Guardian - re Chelsea love in|
at 20:36 25 Feb 2015
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am deeply puzzled as to why yourselves, Match of the Day pundits and now the FA continue to dance to the agenda set by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea Football Club.
in todays front page article (Angry Chelsea want rule change etc)you give the oxygen of publicity to Chelseaâ€™s opinions about the above incident with no counter arguments.
You write that Chelsea are left â€˜appalledâ€™ by the decision to reduce the Matic suspension by only one game.
'The club are incensed by Ashley Barnesâ€™ tackleâ€™
'reacting to a challenge by the Burnley forwardâ€™
â€˜a bare minimum gesture . . . might have left the midfielder with broken legâ€™
â€˜universal condemnation of the reckless challengeâ€™
â€˜unjustly punished . . . . to a career-threatening tackleâ€™
â€˜protect players from dangerous challengesâ€™
â€˜Mourinho, who has been scathing in his criticism of barnesâ€™
Let it be said,
Barnes neither tackled nor challenged Matic.
He played a pass cleanly to a colleague and his right foot followed through to connected with Maticâ€™s leg which was in fact â€˜lateâ€™ coming in on Barnes.
This was potentially, a horrific accident, not a tackle or a challenge.
Noone responded to the incident at the time, except, indisputably, Matic ran ten metres to push Barnes to the ground, violently in the back.
He received a red card.
He then continued to fight to get at other players or the referee rather than leave the pitch.
(meanwhile Ivanovich took the red card from the refereeâ€™s hand, constituting a red card in itself)
This is an automatic three match ban.
Mourinho, on Match of the Day, said he doesnâ€™t speak about such things (though he did for 23 minutes on Sunday) but cites certain minutes during the match that were crucial he claimed, which the pundits then debate for the rest of the analysis.
This of course, deflects debate as to why his Â£400,000,000 team failed to beat lowly Burnley, and why the â€˜Ginger Mourinhoâ€™ somehow out-thought the â€˜Chosen Oneâ€™ who is not slow to feed his own myth.
Or, why his players simulate injury and scream abuse when not award fouls,
Or, FAIL, to throw the ball back to the burnley goalkeeper after Heaton had rolled the ball into touch so that Mee could receive attention on the floor in front of him.The Chelsea players ignored the tradition of sportsmanship that prevails, but used the throw-in to remount their attack near the Burnley goal.
And now, I read, that the PGMOL at Cobham sent a deputation to Mourinho to discuss the incident and build bridges!
Relations in the meeting were strained!
In other words Mourinho was still behaving as though it is he who controls the FA, the referees, the media.
Your report says Mourinho has been scathing in his criticism of Barnes.
I wonder what Ashley Barnes thinks of Mourinho?
We wonâ€™t find out will we?
Mourinho wasnâ€™t scathing, in fact he refused pointedly, to name Barnes, saying he â€˜wasnâ€™t fit to be called a playerâ€™.
I find that deeply offensive.
â€˜Universal condemnation of the reckless challenge?â€™
How would that be monitored?
Certainly Chelseaâ€™s histrionics have lightened Maticâ€™s just suspension, to the disgust of parts of the football world:
Robbie Fowler, for one considers it to be an â€˜absolute shambles, should have got a game extra for such a frivolous appealâ€™.
And finally, if you want a measured, dignified, statesmanlike response to the whole matter, read Sean Dyche in an interview for the Lancashire Telegraph.
Now, THATâ€™S the way to behave.
(I was there)
|Harry's tombola prediction vs what you would play|
at 10:05 5 Oct 2014
Anybodies guess really.
Am gonna say Harry will go with:
Onouha Caulker Ferdinand Traore
Personally I would go with:
Onouha Caulker Ferdinand Traore
Krancjar Fer Hoillet
Reckon Ned will play right back whuch shows how wrong everything is already. I'd play 2 holding midfielders as we keep getting destroyed in the middle and only Bobby has shown any real capability to hold onto the ball (nit that he can last the game).
Anybody else any ideas?
