PFA Give Me Football - Warnock: No Pub for Adel...

Warnock offers backing to Taarabt

QPR – Neil Warnock refutes reports that Adel Taarabt was at a pub
By Vanessa Keller October 04, 2011

Neil Warnock People talk about him storming off. I didn't even know he'd gone. And he certainly didn't go to the pub for a pint as some have reported - he's a Muslim and doesn't drink Player Queens Park Rangers

Neil Warnock has quashed speculation that Adel Taarabt went to a pub and tried to get a bus home after being subbed off as QPR lost to Fulham 6-0 at the weekend, with the manager insisting there are bigger problems than whether the midfielder was happy to come off or not.

Taarabt was substituted at the end of the first half, with QPR already down to the Cottagers 3-0. He apparently stormed to a bus stop outside the ground, with some reports placing him at a pub at one point.

Some fans had photos with the Morocco international at the time, and while Warnock admitted he reacted quite badly, the manager insisted that he wasn’t particularly bothered by the bazaar behaviour.

"It doesn't bother me," he said. "The dressing rooms at Craven Cottage are in one corner of the ground, the bench is on the halfway line on the far side of the pitch. I'm not going to insist he walks 60 yards just to sit and watch us lose.

"At half-time I was more concerned with my defence. I said: '[Shaun Derry] Dessie, you're off, and you are as well Adel.' That was it.

"People talk about him storming off. I didn't even know he'd gone. And he certainly didn't go to the pub for a pint as some have reported - he's a Muslim and doesn't drink.

"They want to be careful he doesn't sue them for saying that."

Warnock also argued that while Derry stayed to watch the loss, he is dealing with two very different personalities and needs to treat each individual in the squad differently.

"They are different people. Adel is young and emotional. He does these things,” Warnock said.

"Last year he said he'd never play for Morocco again after he was made substitute in a game. Guess where he is now? Heading for Morocco to play for them.

"I'll see him at training when we get back and, with the rest of the team, we'll start preparing for the next match at Blackburn. My main concern at the moment is which defenders we'll have fit and available, not Adel.

"You're going to get days when Adel throws his toys out of the pram, that isn't a worry for me, I'd have more problem if someone was happy being subbed." Give Me Football

Inventive Sports are very pleased to announce the launch of the first ever Premier League Player Development Centre (PDC) on Monday 10th October 2011.

Premier League professional coaches will implement a long term sustainable educational curriculum to raise standards at grassroots league level. Talented players will be given the opportunity to enter QPR’s academy. QPR coaches will also mentor young
Asian coaches providing them with an opportunity become professional coaches at the Premier league clubs academy.

The project has been fully endorsed by The Football Association and Queens Park Rangers Community Trust. The guests will include; 2 QPR first team players,QPR Community Trust CEO Andy Evans, distinguished guests from the FA including Hope Powell (England Women’s coach) and Brendon Batson MBE (FA Consultant and former player).

Jonathan Mills, FA Equality Co-ordinator, added: “The Football Association is really pleased to support the launch of this initiative between the QPR Community Trust, West Middlesex and Hayes Youth League and Inventive Sports’ Jas Jassal, who has supported this process.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters from all backgrounds to experience top drawer coaching, delivered through a Premier League Football Club which will nurture and grow their talent.

“We are also extremely pleased that the Development Centre that will deliver this training will be in a predominantly-diverse community, and we hope that this will be an incentive to see more players coming through academies and centres of excellence.” Inventive Sports

Fulham Chronicle - Crystal Palace eye QPR winger By Jacob Murtagh
Oct 5 2011 CRYSTAL Palace are weighing up a loan move for QPR winger Hogan Ephraim.

The 23-year-old has made just two appearances for Rangers this season, but failed to make the 25-man squad submitted to the Premier League following the deadline-day arrivals of Shaun Wright-Phillips and Jason Puncheon.

Ephraim, who was also a target for Millwall earlier in the season, has made more than 100 appearances for Rangers since his switch from West Ham in 2008.

But the Championship club are set to offer him an escape route from Loftus Road as boss Neil Warnock looks to offload his fringe players.

Fulham Chronicle - Millwall plan loan swoop for QPR striker
By Jacob Murtagh

MILLWALL are interested in taking QPR striker Patrick Agyemang on loan.

The Ghanaian forward has made two appearances for Rangers this season, but failed to make the 25-man squad submitted to the Premier League following the summer arrivals of Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell.

However, Warnock admitted he has received calls for the 31-year-old left kicking his heels.

“We’ve had a couple of enquiries for Pat,” he said, “and we should know something pretty soon.”
