No wonder Sullivan & Gold didn't fancy getting into bed with Fernandes, the guy is as full of bullshit as our two muck spreaders combined! Who are QPR interested in this week? Saviola, Beckham, Johnson, Zamora apparently...you name him, and Fernandes will be linked with him somewhere along the line.
We have seen it all before at West Ham. We were linked with Beckham and Toni and Neymar and Klose and Uncle Tom Cobbley and, of course, Tevez. Who have we ended up with? Well we are in the Championship so that says it all!
Fernandes claimed to be interested in Parker but he knew that deal was never going to happen so he could mouth off about that until all his planes came home. True he reeled in Wright-Phillips and Barton but how much did they cost exactly? Man City and Newcastle were so desperate to offload that both were available for a song - their salaries apart.
So we can expect QPR to be linked with a whole host of "stars" over the next three months, only for the squad to look broadly similar come the end of January. This isn't a pot shot at QPR, it is just saying that Fernandes is playing the same game as Sullivan and Gold after their takeover at West Ham. And who did we get in their first January window? McBenni, Mido and Ilan!
Watch out you Rs, you have a conman at the controls! How long before he starts talking about building a new stadium I wonder?
