Update: Championship

I’ve been away for a while but now I’m back. I will start with a look at the Championship. QPR sit top of the table where they have been for pretty much the whole season. Now with a 10 point gap surely now the SuperHoops will be back in the big time. They could have a problem if the FA take action with a points deduction over the signing of, Alejandro Faurlin. It’s similar to the Carlos Tevez situation at West Ham a few years back. However Rangers say they have done nothing wrong. It would be a shame to ruin a fantastic season with matters with the men in suits at Lotus Road. QPR have lead the way from day one, with an exceptional defence Paddy Kenny has kept 20 clean sheets in the league this season. But the star man has to be Adel Taarabt; he has shown he really is too good for the Championship. The 21 year-old has netted 15 goals so far this season, was given the captaincy and he become a firm fan favourite. At times he will annoy you by not passing and sulking at times. But the goals he has scored and the assists and chances created more than make up for it. He will probably take the player of the year award at QPR & I would not be surprised if he takes the Championship award too. He will be a Premier League player next year and I hope it’s at Loftus Road.

Nottingham Forest where QPR’s closet contenders and looked to be a big problem. But with a run of 4 draws & 2 defeats from their last 6 games their fight for automatic promotion looks to have gone. They need to pick up form again because Burnley lie 4 points behind with 2 games in hand.

Swansea City currently sits second but it’s very tight for that second automatic promotion spot. Norwich City can go there tonight if they beat Bristol City. Cardiff have also gone off the boil, messing up against Barnsley, Palace & Ipswich recently. But they should bounce back with the players they have. Leeds United still plugging away and if they do keep within touching distance they go to QPR on the last day of the season. It could be a game where QPR lift the title and Leeds clinch second spot? Only time will tell.
