QPR will not get automatic promotion back to the Premier League this season, so if they are to be promoted they will need to do it via the playoffs.
Loic Remy – in French colors
QPR have been losing too many game this year, and at the moment they are 4th top of the Championship and 13 points behind second placed Burnley, and there are only five game to play.
And their striker Loic Remy will certainly not be returning to the London club, and their manager Harry Redknapp has said today that it’s his understanding the 27 year-old French striker wants to join a Champions League club.
This is what Harry has said:
“Remy wants to play Champions League football next season, so they tell me,”
“He’s done well at Newcastle, and one or two other big clubs are trying to get him, so there’s every chance he will go.”
“He’s a goal scorer, and with the right team pushing to get in the top four, he’s capable of getting 20 goals.”
The question now is which club will he join, and it looks like he could stay in London with Tottenham having said they had already made, what they call a reasonable offer for the player.
Arsenal are the other club he’s been strongly linked with, but a potential problem there is if Arsenal don’t qualify for the Champions League, and that would be the first time they have failed to qualify under manager Arsene Wenger, with Everton pushing them hard.
And one of their players – Santi Cazorla – has already said if Arsenal cannot win titles he will want to leave and would be delighted to return to Spain.
Why players say these kind of things we have no idea – but it’s so unprofessional – and obviously Cazorla is not exactly fully committed to Arsenal.
However, if Arsenal do finish 5th this season then maybe Loic Remy will have to reconsider, although Tottenham will not make the Champions League either.
So if Loic really wants Champions League play next season he may have to look to a club other than Arsenal and Tottenham.
