Camp to Quit?....Stewart on Wembley...Parejo Speaking..Birmingham on Prices and QPR

London Informer/Noam Friedlander - Lee's not a happy camper
Lee Camp could quit QPR in January if he doesn't get first-team football.
The 24-year-old shot-stopper faces the prospect of watching Saturday's match with old club Derby from the Rangers' dugout after losing his place to Radek Cerny.
Ironically, Camp only quit his hometown club for Loftus Road at the start of last season because he'd been left warming the bench at Pride Park after failing to dislodge Stephen Bywater from the number one Jersey.
Clearly, it's not a situation Camp intends to tolerate forever."I'd really like to play football - it's as simple as that," said Camp.
"It's fantastic the way the football club is going. It's geared for success, but I'm someone who doesn't like to sit around not doing anything. I like to work in the week and have a game on Saturday, and I want to be number one not number two.
"There are some goalkeepers who are happy to just sit there, be a number two and pick their money up - but that's not me."

The former Ram was brought back to west London, where he'd served two previous loan spells, by John Gregory, and remained an ever-present in the Rs side last season during the brief reign of Luigi De Canio.
However, new boss Iain Dowie wasted no time bringing in Cerny from Tottenham, and Camp hasn't had a look in since.
"I don't think I've done a lot wrong, but the manager has given his reasons," Camp added. "And whether I agree with them or not, that's what he's paid to do.But it's frustrating, as everyone wants to play football."
By contrast, Kaspars Gorks is likely to see action against his former club, with Blackpool due in west London on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old Latvian centre-back played 57 games for the Seasiders before joining Rangers in a long drawn-out transfer deal in the summer.
His former club were expected to be the whipping boys of the Championship this season, but threw the form book out of the window with victory at then-leaders Birmingham on Saturday.
Gorks expects his former team to continue to confound the pundits and reckons they are famous for rising to the big occasion.He said: "Last season we played much better away to stronger teams than we did at home to weaker sides.
"I can't say I'm surprised at how they've started. People have been talking about them as a team that's going to go down, but it helps Blackpool when people say things like that.
"It takes the pressure off them and makes it easier for them to play. I think they will stay up again." London Informer

Little premature media talk! Anyway never forget, QPR want to concentrate on the League!
The Sun/Pat Sheehan -Stew: We R on our way to Wembley
DAMION STEWART reckons QPR can carry on creating Carling Cup shocks and get to the final.
The Rangers defender scored a terrific third-round winner at Aston Villa to stun Martin O’Neill’s impressive Premier League side.
But Stewart believes the fans ain’t seen nothing yet.
He is convinced the R’s have the quality to emulate Cardiff, who reached last season’s FA Cup final.
Stewart said: “We saw Cardiff City get to Wembley last season so we have to believe we can go all the way in this competition.
“Rangers were testing themselves against a top side.
“We did well and proved we can match anyone on the night.
“As a side we’re getting stronger and stronger and we’re getting better and better at defending.
“The team is doing well this season and we hope to keep that momentum going now.” The Sun

Daniel Parejo re Real Madrid. Unfortunately in Spanish. Translations welcome!
Parejo: "Venir del Real Madrid aquí impone mucho"
El canterano repasó su estancia en las islas Thursday, Por: Defensa Central -September 25
- Dani Parejo, una de las joyas de la cantera del Real Madrid, repasó en la web oficial del club blanco las sensaciones que está viviendo en su nuevo equipo, el QPR, de Inglaterra, en el que juega cedido por el equipo madridista: "Hemos jugado seis partidos de Liga y hemos ganado cuatro, empatado uno y perdido dos. Aquí se juega muy distinto a España, con un delantero alto al que van todos los balones y se busca mucho la segunda jugada. El balón va poco por el suelo", sentenció Parejo.
- Parejo habló muy bien de su nueva afición: "El público es increíble, nuestro estadio siempre se llena. Me cantan algo, pero todavía no entiendo lo que me dicen. Los aficionados me tratan muy bien igual que la gente del Club. Quizá, el venir del Madrid les impone".
- El canterano blanco no quiso dejar pasar la ocasión de alabar a uno de sus jefes, Flavio Briatore: "La adaptación a la vida va muy bien. Vivimos a 20 minutos del campo de entrenamiento y del estadio. Al centro voy en tren. Estoy cerca de la estación de Waterloo y del Big-ben. Briatore es un tipo sensacional. Gracias a él pude ver la Formula 1 en Valencia. Conocí a Fernando Alonso", finalizó el de Coslada.

Metro/Matthew Nash - September 25, 2008 Making a stand: Birmingham fans can expect cheaper tickets
Birmingham chairman David Gold insists ticket prices in football must come down.
In a week when Derby have won their battle with QPR over inflated entry fees for this weekend's Championship showdown at Loftus Road, St Andrew's chief Gold believes it is the duty of all clubs to price matches fairly.
Gold a self-made multi-millionaire and co-owner of City, reckons supporters pay over the odds to get into games - and the money is only going into the players' already inflated pay-packets.
'The trouble is, fans are contributing to what the players earn by paying their wages via the turnstiles and the club shop,' he said.
'Somehow we have to find a way of distributing the wealth of the players and reducing ticket prices is one way of doing that.
'As clubs we could all commit to a ten per cent reduction in Championship admission prices, that would keep the wages down for players.
'It can be done - it's only a question of us all getting together to agree it.'
Gold's comments come as his own club offer tickets starting from just £22 for the match with cash-rich QPR on October 4.
Birmingham's London rivals for promotion, however, are charging as much as £50 for Championship football this season.

But Gold admits he takes Rangers seriously as title contenders after backing from the likes of Formula One entrepreneurs Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore and London-based Indian billionaire industrialist Lakshmi Mittal.
The clubs are favourites to go up to the Premier League - despite City's 1-0 home defeat by Blackpool at the weekend - and Gold is eager to see how much more money QPR boss Iain Dowie will be allowed to spend in January.
The former Crystal Palace manager brought in the likes of Tottenham keeper Radek Cerny, former Roma midfielder Damiano Tommasi and Real Madrid playmaker Daniel Parejo, on loan, during the summer but is expected to make more signings in the New Year.
Gold added: 'The question is: Will QPR want to spend £2million or £20m?

'There's always a dark horse, like a Bristol City or a Hull, but that aside, you have to say the other two relegated clubs [Reading and Derby] will be rivals for the title.
'I don't know if Nottingham Forest have done enough in the transfer market but I had Crystal Palace down as an outside bet to go up this year.'
Gold, however, is certain he has the right man to take his club straight back to the top flight in former Scotland coach Alex McLeish...." Metro
