- Hulse Turns Down Millwall Move. His Agent Explains
Football League - Hulse not interested in Hoops exit
- QPR striker Rob Hulse has no intention of leaving Loftus Road and wants to establish himself as a force in the Premier League, according to the player's agent.
- Hulse has been linked with a move away this summer but his agent Matt Buck insists he is fully focused on proving his worth in the top flight - a stance that recently saw him reject the chance of joining Millwall.
- "There was an inquiry to QPR and there was an inquiry to Rob to see what his thoughts were on it," Buck told Press Association Sport. "Basically he wants to go back pre-season and try to prove himself to the coaching staff and people at QPR that he warrants a place in the Premier League 25-man squad."
- He added: "And hopefully the Premier League matchday squad."
- He added: "Rob is not even considering temporary moves at the moment.
- "With Millwall if the situation changes we told them we would keep them in informed like anybody else.
- "But his whole 100% focus is to get back, work hard in pre-season, work hard in the friendly games and prove he is worth that place."
- Hulse penned a three-year deal with QPR when he joined from Derby last summer, but only made 12 starts in the second tier.

Dan King/News Of The World - Why it's become harder to like the not-so-Super Hoops
June 28, 2011
- UNLESS you are a Chelsea fan, it is hard not to have a soft spot for Queens Park Rangers.
- Or at least, it was.
- In what should be a summer of celebration as they return to the top flight, something is not right at Loftus Road. Quite a few things, actually.
- Up and down... Manager Neil Warnock (left) and player Alejandro Faurlin (right) Up and down... Manager Neil Warnock (left) and player Alejandro Faurlin (right) When I was growing up, QPR went from plucky FA Cup Finalists to Premier League respectability. They were part of the landscape.
- Sure, they annoyed everyone with their plastic pitch, but they had decent players, an attractive style and a certain, slightly down-at-heel, West London charm.
- I can remember watching them demolished by Manchester United's Andrei Kanchelskis and later snatching a deserved draw with Chelsea.
- Invited by a Super Hoops-supporting mate both times, the atmosphere standing in the West Paddock at pitch level was great. It felt like proper football.
- That was the first season of the Premier League and a lot has changed since then, only some of it for the better.
- When I first started working as a football reporter in 2000, there was still something homely and decent about a trip to Twyford Avenue in West Acton to chat to Gerry Francis or Kevin Gallen.
- The ongoing uncertainty about the future of Neil Warnock tells you everything you need to know about the current regime
- Tony the Tailor, who was there every week with his rail of clothes for the players to try on, ended up making suits for my wedding.
- But as Rangers gear up for their first season in the Premier League since 1996, they seem to epitomise a lot of what is wrong with the game - only without the trophies to go with it. A poor man's - or should that be an even richer men's? - Manchester City.
- Billionaires with little understanding of football squabbling over who is going to own the club? Check (or cheque).
- Bizarre off-the-field shenanigans? Buenos dias, Alejandro Faurlin.
- Massive ticket price hikes? Welcome to the recession-proof industry of football.
- The ongoing uncertainty about the future of Neil Warnock tells you everything you need to know about the current regime. We don't just make these stories up, you know. Despite bringing QPR back to the promised land, Warnock's job is far from safe.
- He is not everyone's cup of tea. But you cannot argue with his record of getting teams promoted and the least he deserves is a chance to keep them up.
- Can Flavio Briatore honestly say that another manager could do a better job with the players Warnock is likely to have at the start of the season?
- QPR's chances of attracting better footballers have hardly been enhanced by the row over promotion bonuses which has only just been resolved.
- The billionaires' blueprint for Rangers - "boutique football" is the irritating phrase Briatore once used - seems to be to squeeze everyone for every penny they possibly can while clinging on to Premier League status.
- That's business, you may say. And no one wants another Portsmouth, a club loaded with decent players they could not afford to pay.
- But no one wants a club that has lost its soul and dignity either. News of The World
