Newcastle United have a great opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the table but QPR will make for stiff opposition.

The three teams below us failed to win last night. West Brom suffered a surprise defeat by Barnsley, Preston lost at home to Reading and Middlesbrough lost at home to Leicester. Charmed results as far we’re concerned and if we can capitalise on them and get the win tonight we’ll go 5 points clear at the top of the table.

QPR are sitting in the middle of the table on 13 points but they have two games in hand over most of the teams above them and a win tonight would see them up amongst the play-off positions, so they have everything to play for.

QPR have only lost once in the league this season, which was away to Bristol City. They’ve notched up draws against Blackpool (H), Plymouth (A), Forest (H) and Peterborough (H) and wins against Scunthorpe (A), Cardiff (A) and Barnsley (H). (more…)

It could be like Springfield as Toon may be after Arsenal’s Jay Simpson?

Maybe the players will trot out to the The Simpsons theme tune shortly as Jay may join Danny, if news that we’re interest in (Homer) Jay Simpson is accurate. SSN are reporting that he is set for a loan move away from Arsenal and they’ve had enquiries from both Premiership and Championship clubs.

It’s understood that the promising young forward is wanted by QPR, Sheffield United, Swansea and of course, not forgetting the Toon. Simpson was on loan at West Brom last season, only scoring once in his 13 games but impressing nonetheless with ability and pace.

Yet to make his league debut for Arsenal but having scored twice in three Carling Cup appearances, Wenger thinks highly of him but seems happy to let him gain more experience out on loan having spent a year at Millwall as well, where he score 7 goals in 41 games.

So another unproven forward to come into the mix then? It’s a case of hit and miss with most new players but it would be more reassuring to get someone with experience and proven pedigree. (more…)
