Kicker Conspiracy

Not much to say that hasn't already been mentioned.

Franck Queudrue has left the club to join Birmingham City for around £2.5m. I've had mixed feelings about Franck, having been quite excited when we signed him, but subsequently disappointed when I saw him play. Still feel he could probably have found a better club but it might make the final home game of the season more interesting. Actually thinking about it let's hope that, and maybe the outside chance of qualifying for Europe, is the only reason the final home game of the season is interesting!

We played QPR on Friday night and lost 2-1. I didn't see any of it so check Craven Cottage Newsround or the Offal for more extensive reports. It sounds like we didn't take our chances (that sounds familiar) whilst the R's did take theirs. McBride scored our goal early in the 1st half, but also missed three decent chances. Healy started alongside him as Kamara is still suffering from the injury he picked up against Portsmouth. Lee Cook made his first start for us and played 45 minutes, Ian Pearce also made a return coming on as a 2nd half substitute and Philippe Christanval was on the bench. The first game is in a weeks time at Arsenal before our first home match against Bolton on Wednesday night.

The BBC are reporting that we have signed Australian centre back Adrian Leijer but he doesn't arrive until Tuesday so I doubt it will be officially announced until then.

Updates might be a bit intermittent on here for various reasons. I'm going on a tour of the Emirates Stadium tomorrow with Chop Jr. so will report back with my opinion later in the week. This weeks "humorous headlines" were courtesy of The Fall.
