QPR Want Newcastle Winger Routledge On Loan

There was news of this yesterday in the local Newcastle papers, and more news today, that QPR would like Wayne Routledge back playing for them.

Wayne Routledge – QPR want him back

The news is in the Daily Mirror, which is reporting QPR are to sign Wayne Routledge for a second time – on a £21K-a-week loan deal.

It’s not surprising that manager Neil Warnock, who has done a fantastic job at the London club since taking over last summer, wants to ensure he has enough quality in his side to nail down one of those automatic promotion places.

Routledge was signed this time last year, as one of five new players who came to the club, and helped us easily get promoted with a massive 102 points to win the Championship.

And last season Wayne played very well in 17 appearances, in which he scored 3 goals, and this season he’s made 19 appearances, although very few of those have been starts.

But since Alan Pardew arrived on Tyneside, Wayne has seen action as a substitute quite a few times, and Newcastle are currently short of wingers, so we cannot believe this would be a good deal for Newcastle.

And Wayne still has a chance to make it at the club, even though his form has not been as good this season, as it was when he first arrived.

But the lad, who turned 26 earlier this month, still has the potential to make it in the Premier League, and that’s what we would like to see him do at Newcastle.

We’d be very surprised if Wayne is allowed to leave on loan in January.

However, QPR have 21 year-old creative Moroccan midfielder, Adel Taarabt, playing very well for them, so whether Newcastle could do some kind of deal to get Adel, using Wayne as bait, so to speak, we don’t know.

And yes, we’re sure that’s the very last thing QPR supporters want to hear. 😀

What do you think?

    Cant see this being a good move for us. We need to keep some pace on the bench for impact subs with Routs and Ranger.

    I really like WAyne, his pace is a blessing on our wings, Gutti just bounces along slowly. On his day he can be a nightmare.

    Agreed. Maybe we can get Adel and loan him back to them.

    I would like to get taarabt bought permenantly in return for a loan out of routeledge for the rest of the season, but that seems such a crap deal for QPR in the long-term I just cant see them doing it.

    It would be great for us though. Saying that, taarabt is a bit of a hot head as well isn’t he. I dont know if he’d get on with joey B, andy C and hatem BA.

    Ed, why dont we put a £3m bid in for Pienaar, as Everton have already accepted offers from spurs and chelsea. The one thing we can guarentee him that they cant is regular 1st team football. Not sure if his wages would be too much though. He may also like the bright lights and the bling of Laandan.

    Who knows, but there’s no chance if we dont bid.

    For all Wayne does not get his starts etc, I think we need him as a backup player, hes a good lad and got bags of pace.

    For him to get back in the starting XI is up to him, the only thing against him at the minute is how good Joey is playing down the right.

    I cant see QPR wanting to let Taarabt leave in all fairness, they are trying to keep their best players so would be free to ask crazy money for him.

    As for Joe Cole, why would we bid £5M for him? We DO NOT NEED central midfielders!
    Similar with Pienaar

    Carver news on official website. Pardew delighted to have him on board. Deal is only until the end of the season though.

    Why do fast, skilful people = always played on the wing in English football. Why is it always assumed they can cross the ball well ? I think Routledge could be a revelation played through the middle or even as a link striker. Messi isn’t a winger, bt has bags of pace and skill but he’s never looking to cross a ball and give it away.

    Boy can’t cross but got speed. If we get some other winger in then he can leave otherwise he’s an alright squadplayer, nothing else.

    Routledge is a fast SPRINTER not a football player

    He got potential to be like lennon or walcott, but he tend to afraid to get pass defenders
