Peter Ramage Settled Well In London


Peter Ramage was born and bred in the same town that the Charlton brothers and Jackie Milburn made famous – Ashington, which is about 15 miles north of Newcastle.

Peter Ramage – has settled well in London

And it seems from the reports down south, that Peter seems quite happy with life at QPR, as he gets used to his new life in London.

Peter wanted first team football, as he did when he signed his last contract at the club, under Graeme Souness, back in 2005.

The club couldn’t guarantee him that next season, so against the wishes of Kevin Keegan, Ramage decided to move on and leave the only club he had ever played for.

However, he seemed to make a good choice, and moved to a club on the up, in QPR, and we would expect the club to be challenging for promotion from the Championship in the coming season.

Peter was interviewed today on BBC London and said:

“It has been enjoyable”

“The lads have helped us settle in, it has been a good start and the management have been terrific.”

Ramage made his Queens Park Rangers debut on Saturday, at Broadhall Way, against Stevenage Borough, and they won the game quite easily by 3-1.

However, Peter didn’t play at center-back, his preferred position, but apparently put in a solid 45 minutes at right back, where he actually made his Newcastle debut,  before being withdrawn at half time.

Newcastle fans know Peter as a hard worker and a solid player, who hardly ever lets the side down, and he’s just a great professional.

As far as the game was concerned Peter said:

“I thought we did quite well,”

“We were a bit rusty and tired because we had a tough week in Bath but we tried to win the game because it is important to get that winning mentality.”

We’ll be following the QPR results this season, and checking in to see how Peter is doing down south, but it looks like he’s off to a solid start, and that’s good to hear.

Comments welcome.

    Dear Ed,

    Nice to hear Peter has got off to a good start.

    Have you heard that Zenit are claiming Spurs have bid for Arshavin, but below the now asking price of £ 21.5m.

    There’s still some mileage to go on this one. Yes , he is overpriced, but a midfield with Arshavin and Modric would be too greedy!

    Regards, Neil

    Who needs Arshavin or Modric when we have Butt, Smith and Geremi. Bring on Manure for a good tonking. Smith hattrick I reckon.

    A midfield with Modric AND Arshavin would last about five mins in the Premeirship.

    Dean Windass alone would probably account for some physio time for the two of them.

    P.S Hold down control and use your jog wheel to make the text bigger and smaller noobs. Failing that alter it in ‘V iew’.

    I say, keep Butt and Smith for another 5-6 years, maybe that will be enough time for smith to score.

    Daiv, that was a good one !

    Just trying to be positive. I’ve turned over a new leaf.
    With midfield generals like Butt Geremi and Smith, do you reckon we need any signings? I can’t see how Modric and arshavin could improve on them. In any case they would be too dear and not value for money. We are concentrating on £1M bargains to get us into top 4. Fantastic strategy Mr Ashley. Can’t but wonder why none of the other teams like Manure and Chelsea have thought of it.

    Piers,
    The problem with Banyoun is that he costs more than £2M and would break the club stategy of signing young cheap potential. We are keeping the money in the bank to invest in something other than players. Still its great having loads of money to wag in the faces of City and Spuds who seem to be going all out to win something. More fool them.

    Good grief have I stepped into a time loop, it feels like I am back in pre season last year. Have I been dreaming that KK became our manager and in reality we still have fat Sam.

    Nowt has changed in the transfer scene other than we are spending less money.

    The worrying thing about the banner is 13 faces. Thats it. Minute squad. Still at least we don’t have to worry abouth any of them being out injured much. How positive is that?

    re the font size:
    if you hold down the key and tap the key you can temporarily increase the font size.
    But we still need a permanent fix
