Snippets II - Swansea's Martinez Not Interested in QPR Job...Ex-QPR St Aimie Unwanted by Barnet...Birmingham-QPR Preview...QPR's New Magazine

BBC - Martinez 'committed' to Swansea
The Swans boss has been linked with the vacant managerial position at big-money Championship rivals QPR.
Martinez said: "I'm not interested in leaving, I've got too much work to be thinking about these things."
Swansea's impressive start to the season coupled with their attractive and attacking brand of football has raised Martinez's managerial stock.
The Swans, last year's League One champions, are seventh in their first year back in English football's second tier.
Martinez is one of the most highly-rated young managers outside the Premier League and the former Swans captain is attracting attention from other chairmen.
Martinez has been mentioned as one of the leading candidates to be Iain Dowie's possible successor at Queens Park Rangers, dubbed the world's most richest club.
And as the managerial merry-go-round kicks into overdrive, Martinez's name will be linked to many attractive jobs.
"I take the attention as a great complement," said Martinez.
"It shows we must be doing something right, it's a huge compliment to everyone at Swansea City.
"But we're all committed to Swansea City and we'll carry on working hard because we want to achieve great things." BBC

Barnet Official Site - St Amie Available
Kieron St Aimie, the 19-year-old former QPR winger who recently spent a month on loan with Grays Athletic, is to be made available for transfer or further loan.
The 6ft 1ins tall St Aimie was in the Bees' starting line-up on the opening day of this season against Chesterfield and was then used as a substitute in the next three games against Brighton and Hove Albion, Rochdale and Brentford.
He has made six appearances since joining Barnet, plus eight more as a substitute, but has not scored a goal. Dennis Signy - Barnet Official Site

Sky Sports/Richard Bailey - QPR v Birmingham Preview
Blackstock hopes to gain recall for Hoops while McLeish looks to name unchanged side
Queens Park Rangers host Birmingham City at Loftus Road on Tuesday night in Gareth Ainsworth's second match in charge of the Hoops.
The home side are without a manager after Iain Dowie left on Friday leaving player/coach Ainsworth to take charge of team affairs.
Ainsworth got off to a credible start drawing 0-0 with Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday and his side sit just a point off the play-offs.
Defender Damien Delaney will definitely miss the game with a one-match suspension after picking up five yellow cards.
Striker Rowan Vine is the only injured absentee as he continues to recover from a broken leg.
Real Madrid loanee Daniel Parejo was recalled to the side against Reading while striker Samuel Di Carmine made his first appearance for the club. Both are in line to keep their places for the visit of Birmingham.
Dexter Blackstock - the club's leading goalscorer - was on the bench on Saturday but could be recalled to the starting XI after QPR failed to score against Reading.
Veteran midfielder Damiano Tommasi could start after being named on the bench for the first time this season against Reading.
Birmingham news
The League leaders have lost just once in their opening 13 Championship matches leaving them two points clear at the top.
Birmingham could be without Radhi Jaidi who has failed to recover from a thigh injury. Fellow defender David Murphy could be drafted back in after recovering from a knee injury.
Alex McLeish could be tempted to stick with the same team that beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 on Saturday, meaning that James McFadden, back from a groin injury would have to be happy with a place on the bench.
Loan signing Quincy Owusu-Abeyie is in contention after recovering from a thigh injury but he too may have to start on the bench.
Damien Johnson remains unavailable with a back injury while McLeish has let Souleymane Mamam leave the club after a one-month trial. Sky
